GRAD FROM INDIANA
Charles E. Henderson Comes Long
Distance to Join Class
Reunion of ’93
Chas. E. Henderson, ’93, lawyer
of Indianapolis, arrived here yester
day for Homecoming and the re
union of his class, at which six of
the eleven members will be present.
Henderson has come farther than
any “grad” and has come osten
sibly for this event. He expects
to return Monday or Tuesday. Miss
Amelia Henderson, his daughter, ac
companies him and will visit in
California on her way east.
The Henderson’s are guests of Mr.
and Mrs. L. H. Johnson, whose
home is headquarters for the mem
bers of ’93. Mrs. Johnson is perma
nent secretary of the class.
The Class will have no formal
meeting, but have planned several
things that they will do together.
At the campus luncheon a section
of the bSlcony will be set aside for
them. Saturday night before the
big dance, Mr. and Mrs. Johnson
are entertaining the class at din
ner at the Osburn. Sunday will
probably be devoted to calling on
friends of this class, which led on
the campus thirty years ago.
This is Henderson’s third visit to
the campus since his graduation. He
last visited in 1909.
Miss Henderson graduated from
Wellesley in 1920, where she ob
tained her master’s degree.

priceless blue and white china. The
collection of Chinese lacquer, un
doubtedly one of the finest of its
kind in any American museum,
draws the visitor. Three cases of
embroideries and tapestries are
colorful displays. A close examina

Examine the cabinet on the south
wall. Exclaim at the glory of the
turquoise blue vase. Do not over
look the mirror-black vases; it would
be impossible to pass by the five
color china. This cabinet will prove
to be one of the most popular ex
hibits in the museum.
The other exhibit rooms contain
further surprises, and finally, an
overwhelming one. After passing
between rows of beautiful Manchu
costumes, the visitor arrives at the
Chinese pavilion. Here are five
lifelike figures, garbed imperially as
befits a Manchu—the empress, the
emperor, the prince, the princess,
and the general in charge of the
palace. Adjacent to the pavilion sits
a Ming emperor, a grave and solem
figure, clad in the robes of his of
In the room above are the price
less Chinese paintings which are
from the collection of Gen. Normann
Munthe, of Peking, one of the great
est Oriental collectors in the world.
Gen. Munthe has been collecting for
30 years. He gave Mrs. Warner the
unrestricted choice of 19 of his
paintings. In return he asked only
that she make a gift to the mother
Christian Science church in America.
Gen. Munthe is a Christian Scientist,
and declared he would give the
paintings to America because
Christian Science teachings came
first from this country.
Old Bronze Purchased
From Mrs. Richardson, of Hong
kong, Mrs. Warner was able to pur
chase many priceless relies, includ
ing the general’s uniform, a very
old bronze, a piece of Chinese crackle
war, and other objects.
Dr. Johni C. Ferguson, an expert
on Chinese antiques; Mrs. Ferguson,
Miss Jane Fair, of Peking, and Mrs.
Sawyer, the wife of the American
vice-consul at Shankhai, all helped
Mrs. Warner in her search for
Oriental art works last spring. Be
cause of the assistance of Mrs. Eric
Clarke, Mrs. Warner was able to
obtain the Manchu headdresses and
other additions to the collection.
Prof. Fergus Reddie superintended
the lighting effects for the Chinese
pavilion in the museum, and ar
ranged the figures in the pavilion.
Paul Walters modeled the figures.
Dean Lawrence, of the school of
architecture designed the pavilion.

- Dean Straub left Eugene for Port

obliged tb' submit to a serious op

slowly poisoning his system and
threatened his life. The dean was
assured that the operation would not
cause him serious pain for more
than a week after its performance,
but the face of the matter is that
he suffered intense physical pain
until a few days ago. This Dean
