Oregon Daily Emerald VOLUME XXV _ UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 23. 1924 NUMBER 77 DENTAL COLLEGE MAY JOIN OREGON Dr. Herbert Miller Gives North Pacific, Portland, to Public; 668 Enrolled VALUE ABOUT $300,000 Donor Provides Trustees May Transfer Institution to University if Desired Announcement of the gift to the state of Oregon of the North Pacific College of Dentistry and Pharmacy by its founder and president, Dr. Herbert C. Miller, of Portland, is of interest to the University com munity, particularly because of the provision made by the donor that at any time it should be deemed y advantageous to turn over the in stitution to the University of Ore gon, the trustees may make this disposal of the college, if the uni versity is in a position to assume charge of it. No Comment Made No comment was made by the administration of the University upon the possibility of such an ad dition to its responsibilities yester day, and at present no such plan of action has been announced by the trustees. At present the dental college is in the hands of seven trustees, including Dr. Miller, who will remain as president of the in stitution. The men whom he has appointed are: Dr. Edward A. Pierce, Dr. Joseph A. Pettit, Dr. Pred E. Gulick, Dr. Louis J. Fitz patrick, Reverend William G. Eliot and Ralph W. Wilbur. The col lege is to be conducted entirely upon a non-profit basis and pro vision is made for its perpetuation. The college has a faculty of 40 members, and during the past year its enrollment has reached 668. It was founded in 1900, and is one of the three largest institutions of its kind in the United States. Name to be Changed In making this change in the status of the dental college, Dr. Miller is making a substantial gift to the state and to posterity. The present valuation of the property of the college is estimated at more than $300,000, including the site, building and equipment at Ejast Sixth and Oregon streets in Port land. Under the recent incorpora tion it will bear the name of the North Pacific College of Oregon. PELICAN ART HONORED Drawings From College Publication Appear in Issue of Judge University of California—(By P. P. I. S.)—Two drawings from re cent issues of the Pelican, Cali fornia’s humorous publication, have appeared at the same time in a cur rent issue of Judge, national humor ous magazine. This represents a step ahead in Pelican art work, and is the first time any college periodical has received such double recognition. The issue was not a college number. F. M. Cone, ’24, editor of the Pelican, who has recently return ed from the east, declares that east ern colleges regard the University of California Pelican as one of the leading humorous publications of country. STUDENT WRITES BOOK Stanford Woman Will Publish Story of Boarding School Life Stanford University — “Barbara Winship at Boarding School,” a story for younger girls written by Helen K. 'Broughall, has been ac cepted for immediate publication by the Page Publishing company. Miss Broughall plans to make this the first of a series of boarding school volumes of about 350 pages. The book was written before the authoress matriculated at Stanford and work on the companion volumes of the set is under way. The con tract offered by the pubishers stipu lates a refusal on Miss Broughall s ^ work for a period of five years. Payment will be made on a royalty basis. Women Scribes to Edit Annual Theta Sig Paper “The Handshake” of Theta Sigma Phi will soon be among those present in the way of cam pus publications. For the benefit of the uninformed, “The Hand shake” is the annual publication of the local chapter of the women’s journalism society and appears for the purpose of keeping alumni members in touch with campus ac tivities as well as learning about each other. Several new features have been added to the publication this year, says Catherine Spall, editor-in-chief. For instance there is to be a clever article on the naming of “The Handshake.” It was during the “flu”” epidemic three or four years ago. Don’t you see yet? Well, flu — grippe, grip •—- hand shake! ! And so it was named. Each alumnae member is contri buting to the issue as well as most of the active members, says Miss Spall. “We will have a complete staff of workers who will also be featured in an unusual manner.” orbersTor oreganr ' OVER THOUSAND MARK Eight Houses Subscribe Hundred Per Cent Seven women's houses and one of the men’s organizations sub scribed 100 per cent in the Oregana drive last week. In the final re turns given out last night by the business manager, Myron Shannon, a total of 1,075 books have been sold to students of the campus. Two hundred books were sold at the booth within the library, the rest being convassed at each organiza tion. The number of books signed for is greater than the previous year at this stage of the campaign. Those houses who have subscribed 100 per cent are: Alpha Beta Chi, Alpha Chi Omega, Alpha Xi Delta, Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Xi Delta, Tau Nu, Thacher Cottage and Alpha Phi. The men’s houses have sub scribed for fewer books than the women’s organizations. However, there are several houses among the women’s and men’s organizations which have come within only a few copies of having sold a number equal to the membership of their houses. Subscriptions are still coming in from outside the campus. Within the near future a subscription cam paign will begin on the campus of the University of Oregon medical school at Portland. It is hoped that the subscriptions will be of such volume that the tentative price of $4.50 may be lowered. The editorial sections of the book are steadily progressing. The work of mounting pictures is continuing. Material is daily being sent to the printer and engraver. By February 1, the material will be organized and arranged for each section and the work of mounting will be com pleted. TICKET SALE IS OPEN Dean Esterly in Charge of Seats for Stuart Walker Plays The campus ticket sale for the Stuart Walker plays to be presented February 5 and 6, in Eugene, is in charge of Dean Virginia Esterly. The coming of Stuart Walker’s portmanteau theater, sponsored by the American Association of Uni versity Women here, is being much anticipated and commented on by students on the campus. Dean Esterly has advised that students avail themselves of an early purchase of tickets in order that they might be mailed into the Heilig theater to be exchanged for reserved seat checks as early as possible. GRACE EDGINGTON VISITS FRIENDS IN ASTORIA Miss Grace Edgington, alumni secretary, left Eugene Monday night for Astoria. She will spend two or three weeks visiting friends at the coast. Miss Edgington who has been ill for the past week was directed by her physician to take a short rest from her work as assistant professor of English and editor of “Old Oregon.” STATUE-MAKING WILL BE SHOWN Fairbanks to Demonstrate P/ocedure of Sculptor Before Public Gathering CLUB TO STAGE BENEFIT Chamber of Commerce Aid Promised; Other Groups May Give Their Support How a piece of sculpture is pro duced will be demonstrated by a sculpture himself on next Wednes day evening, January 30 at 8 o’clock in Villard hall, when Avard Fair banks will give an actual performance of sculpture open to the public. The demonstration is to be held un der the auspices of the Sculpture club of the University of Oregon, and will be in the nature of a bene fit, in the hope of enabling W. Frank Purdy, director of the Amer ican School of Sculpture in New York City, to come west. Process Promised. Making a work of art out of lead pipe, butterflies and clay is a pro cess little known to the average lay man, who has heard of feet of clay, but seldom seen not only feet of clay but hands and body and gun of clay grow before his eyes. From the mak ing of the first armature to the last 'touch of the modeling tool the com plete process will be shown. Professor Fairbanks has consented to give the demonstration because he feels that it is only among the peo ple themselves that a true sense of an American art can grow. Although he has studied abroad he would wish to combat the old attitude of com plete dependence on Europe. “A European can never sense the spirit of America, because he is not an American,” said Professor Fair banks. “ His fathers did not fight and die to preserve the American na tion.” Chamber Gives Aid The Eugene Chamber of Commerce has already signified its interest in the demonstration and is giving the sculpture club its support in the mat ter in asking its members to attend. Other civic organizations are being appealed to. Paul Walters, member of the Sculpture club, addressed the Rotarians at luncheon yesterday, out lining the project. The idea is to make the evening a community af fair. Mr. Purdy, who is now on a tour of the middle west, has expressed a desire to come to the Pacific coast, and with the plan to make this pos sible the benefit is being given. It is hoped that he may be instrumental in cooperating with the University of Oregon in laying the foundation of a great summer school of American sculpture in Oregon. Y. M. HUT REMODELED Further Changes Being Considered According to Mrs. Donnelly Mr. H. M. Fisher, superintendent of grounds, has a crew of painters at work at the Y. M. C. A. hut put ting two coats of grey paint on the inside walls. Further changes on the inside of the hut are contemplat ed, according to Mrs. Donnelly, head of the employment bureau. The counter to the left of the main entrance will be torn out and the candy counter moved back against the wall, affording a great deal more space than at present. New curtains will be placed at the windows and a few rugs will be added to help relieve the barren ness of the floors. JOE CLARK IS TEACHER Former Dramatic Student on Staff of Hill Military Academy Joe Clark, a junior on the campus, has left school and is teaching the eighth grade students of the Hill Military Academy in Portland. His work includes English, penmanship and a small amount of dramatics. Clark was a Springfield man and had been a member of the senior company for two years in the dram atic depart in which he was major ing. He left the University after the fall term. Fonr Days Left for Tardy Ones to Throw Cash Fees for Winter Term Due This Week Today and three days more are all that remain of the week allotted for the paying of registration and laboratory fees. The careful stu dent pays his foes early, but the laggard waits until the last min ute, almost. As the time grows shorter, the lines before the three windows, where the fees are paid, grow longer. To those that do not wish to stand long in line, the word is “comq early.” The hours that the cashier’s win dows remain open are from eight o’clock in the morning to noon, and from one-thirty to four o’clock. The office is remaining open an hour later during the afternoon to accomodate the students; the us ual closing hour is at three. Students who are planning on paying their fees on Saturday have only a half day then, as the office will close at noon. “HOUR HAND” SETTINGS ARE WELL WORKED OUT New Music Scores and Rich Costumes are Added An Alpine village with a typical clock shop and inn, nestling against a background of mountains, is the setting for “The Hour Hand,” a folk-opera by Anna Landsbury Beck, which is to be presented in Eugene January 31, at the Heilig theatre, and in Portland February 6. Several features that have been added since the production of the opera last year are creating much interest. Improvement over last year’s pro duction is noted in the scenery, cos tumes, choruses, and the orchestra tion. Henry Sheldon, son of H. D. Sheldon, dean of the school of edu cation, is working out the scenery. It is being constructed under his su pervision and he himself is doing much of the decorating and coloring. Upon the back drop, lent by the Hei lig theatre of Eugene, Mr. Sheldon has susceeded in representing the Alps in a realistic way and on a large scale. Another added attraction is the band of village musicians who will play for the festival dances. Prom inent among these is Yohann, the ac cordian player taken by Theodore Walstrum, of the school of music faculty. The accordian, regarded as an exceptionally fine one, has been lent by “The Music Shop” of Eu gene. The other village musicians will delight the audience with mouth harp and fiddle melodies. Charles M. Runyan, who orchestrat ed the music, likewise has contribut ed some choral and instrumental num bers new to the opera this year. “Mr. Runyan has hown excellent taste in his orchestrations,” said Mrs. beck, “and the contributions are charming and original.” Mr. Run yan, who is a former University of Oregon, student, has had much exper ience with theatrical orchestras, and will conduct this performance as well as the one in Portland on February 6. I ne costumes are sirnuu^ij mu color and combinations of the pea sants during the seventeenth century. Every scene which greets the eye abounds with delightful color and friendliness, gay with songs and dan ces, and will be produced by a group of young people whose youth, ability, and enthusiasm spells charm. E. F. CABLETON TO VISIT POLK COUNTY SCHOOLS Mr. E. F. Carleton, field represen tative of the University extension division, is in Polk county this week, where he will visit the Dallas, Independence and ^Oregon State normal schools in company with Polk county superintendent, Josiah Wills. A CORRECTION Yesterday the'Emerald erroneous ly printed the score of the recent Eugene high-University high game as being 25 to 10.

PROFFESOR HOWE TO GIVE ADDRESS English Instructor Chooses as Assembly Topic New Theory on Civilization MAIN FACTS NOT GIVEN ; Lecturer to Speak Before Student Body for First Time in Several Years A new idea on civilization will be presented to the student body on Thursday, January 24, when Professor Herbert C. Howe ad dresses the assembly on the sub ject of “Biological Limit of Civili zation.” This topic deals with the plan of applying biological l'aws to the advance in civilizations, and Professor Howe says that as far as he khows it is a new field of thought not yet explored. The main points to be brought out in his address, Professor Howe does not wish to disclose in order that he may present his idea with out having interest deadened by preliminary discussion. He says, however, that he will deal with the bearing certain biological laws have on the state of civilization that man can attain. Howe Veteran Speaker This is the first time in several years that Professor Howe has spoken to the weekly assembly. He said that it would be like old times again to speak to the assembly Thursday. During the first five or ten years that Professor Howe was on the campus he used to be put on the assembly program once a year and often twice. Professor' Howe has been with the University since 1901 and is now in his twenty-third year of service to this institution. He is head of the English department and professor of English literature. His courses are among the most popular on the campus. Interesting Topic Chosen Mrs. George Fitch, in speaking of Professor Howe, said that he is recognized as one of the leading professors on the Oregon campus by persons all over the stato and that he is a very good speaker. His topic, promises a very interesting assembly, she said. An interesting thing about Professor Howe, ac cording to Mrs. Fitch, is that al though he is now connected with the subject of English, he took his graduate work in philosophy. Professor Howe has had publish ed a book of his poems, “Bags and Tatters” being the name of it. Ho has also been a contributor to vari ous magazines such as The North American Beview, his contributions being in the form of poetry or lit erary criticisms. One of his poems was included in the Bellman Book of Verse. Professor IIowo is among that group of professors who have been with the University for many years, ranking with Dean Straub and others.

Smail, assistant professor in the department of mathematics, read a paper in Divergent Series before the mem bers of the Mathematics club last evening at their monthly meeting in Johnson hall. Dr. Smail is the author of the first complete work on the theory of infinite processes which has been published in this country and is regarded as an authority in this field of research in mathematics. His book, which is entitled “Elc- j ments of the Theory of Infinite Processes,” was published by Me Graw, Hill and. company, in Aug ust, 1923, and was the text for a course in this subject given by him here during the fall term. Dr. Smail came to the University this year from the University of Washington, where he was on the faculty for some time. He re ceived his Ph. D. from Harvard. Ye Oregon Knights Gather to Receive Oaths of Office Hark back to ye goode olde days when knighthood was in flower. When gentle knights and brave did gather about Arthur’s table round to tell of noble feats performed on milk-white steeds for some fair damosel. But list! The golden age of chivalry is come again. Now warriors of our Oregon do tread amongst us with swords six feet long. T’is the Oregon Knights of whom we speak. Yesterday the nineteen freshrrten of this honorary organization appeared on the cam pus with the most wicked looking 1 weapons. They tell us those lowly pages took their oaths of knight hood over at the Women’s build ing last night. Now they’re real knights of the round table. Thoso initiated are: Robert Cof fey, Parker Branin, Trving Brown, Thomas Mahoney, Clifford Powers, Milton Rice, Harry Hemings, Alan Woolley, Alan Button, Morton Coke, Richard Wright, Kenneth Birkemeier, John Boswell, Samuel Herrick, Peter Ermler, Gerald Wade, Fred Lockwood, LaVerno Miller, .Tames Johnson. MRS. WARNER DOUBLES ORIENTAL ESSAY AWARD Hundred Dollars Offered for Best Article As an added incentive to stu dents to submit essays on the sub ject of the relations of the Pacific northwest to the Orient, Mrs. Gert rude Bass Warner, donor of the Murray Warner museum, has offered to increase the prize from fifty to one hundred dollars. Last year a prize of fifty dollars was oflferod for the best essay on this same subject, and this was won by Tetsuchi Kurishigc, a senior in the law school. His sub ject was, “The Press and Oriental American Relations.” Mrs. Warner has doubled the prize, but the conditions for the contest are the same as last year. The essay must be at least 5,000 words in length, original, and may bo written on any phase of the subject. It may also be accompan ied by illustrations if the author so desires. In last year’s contest, one of those which was a very close competitor for the prize was writ ten and illustrated by Fook Tyo Lau, now a senior in architecture, on the subject of the unification of the peoples of the world through art. The time limit for the contest has not yet boen set, but it will prob ably be about the first weok in May, according to George Turnbull, who is a member of the University committee on awards. Mr. Turnbull also stated that the essay would have to bo approved by this com mittee, which is composed of him self, John Landsbury, C. D. Thorpe, W. F. G. Thatcher, and A. E. Cas well. The judges for the contest have not yet boen chosen, but the awards committee may act as judges if they so wish. Mrs. Warner is keenly interested in the establishment of friendly re lations between this country and the Orient, and it is for this rea son that she has increased the award, in tho hope that more in terest will be taken in the subject than last year'. EDUCATIONAL MOVIE TO BE SHOWN AT FARMER’S UNION Lew J. Tyrrell, who is connected with the visual instruction depart ment of the University extension, will give a motion picture program for the farmer’s union at Walter ville, Oregon, today.

LARGE LOAN FUND GIVEN UNIVERSITY OF KANSAS University of Kansas—A loan fund of $10,000 has been placed at the disposal of the student loan fund committee of the University of Kansas by James L. Mead, A. B., ’83, president of the Mead Cycle Works in Chicago. No deserving student is denied the opportunity of benefitting from the loan fund. PRACTICE SEASON mill CLOSE SOON First Big Game to be with Washington February 4; Early Showing Is Good RIENHART IS OPTIMISTIC Varsity Plays Badgers and Dentists This Week-end Away From Home Floor Oregon s practice season is over, as far as home contests go. The games on the homo floor from now will bo big time struggles. The varsity machine will take a return whack at tho Badgers next Friday night at Forest Grove, and on the following evening the North Pacific Dentists will be hosts to tho Lemon Yellow quintet. After that, how | over, Reinhart’s proteges will be ■ traveling in faster company. The j first big leaguo affair will be Febru ary 4, when the University of Washington Huskies travel south and meet the locals on the Armory floor. Hunk Flays Good Ball It might bo well at this stage of the season to sum up the activities of the varsity and about the best place to start is with the men themselves. Latham is playing the best basketball of his career. De fensively, Hunk is playing vastly better than in previous seasons, while his offensive work is seasoned by a judgment and knowledge of the game gained from several yeaTS of collegiate competition. Shafer and Chapman have lived up to expectations in the checking department of the game, although Hal has not completed the transition from football condition to basket ball trim. Just at present, there is no one who is capable of filling the shoes of either of these two without breaking up the nicety of the team play. Charlie Jost looks like the most promising candidate to break into the combination, but as yet he not only lacks the ex perience, but is also weakened by a recent operation. Combination is Good The forward combination presents the brightest outlook, with Gowans, Hobson and King, taking turns at the job. Hobby has plenty of speed and a nice eye for tho basket, but thus far, with the exception of the first game, he has not seemed to hit his stride. Reinhart has expressed himself as being fairly well satisfied with the work at this stage of the season, but he goes on to state that the t team docs not yet have the drive necessary to weather the faster competition of the moro experienced teams. Y. W. C. A. SALE PLANNED Hampton Building Decided Upon for Annual Rummage Bazaar The University Y. W. C. A. ad visory board lias selected the Hampton building us the place to conduct its annual rummage sale, Thursday and Friday of this week.
