    Complete Cast
Named for Play
Characters Adapted
for Roles
By Josephine Eire
The east which has been chosen
for Sheridan’s “School for Scan
dal,” to be performed February 22,
23, and 24, at Guild Hall, is espe
cially interesting. Everyone knows
the yenowned characters of thid
play; their names have become
bywords. Mr. Reddie has chosen
people who are peculiarly well
adapted to their roles.
Elizabeth Robinson will play
Lady Teazle, that quick-witted,
sharp-tongued, impertinent young
woman who enjoys for so short a
time her extravagant life among
the scandal mongers.
The part of the feline Lady Sneer
well will be taken by Wenona Dyer,
ady Sneerwell is the center of the
“School of Scandal” by merit; and
indeed has a most astonishing abil
ity to ruin and disgrace reputa
tions with a few words. Her wit
is no less nimble than that of Lady
Teazle’s, but she proves to have
sinister designs, Missi Dyer has
proven herself competent in the
past to interpret such roles in an
inimitable manner.
Katherine Pinneo has the role
of Mrs. Candour, whose very name
is enough to arouse mirth, as one
of the most celebrated of Sheri
dan’s characters. No one doubts
Miss Pinneo’s capacity to portray
this! loquacious, w-ell-meaning wo
man, -who, although she firmly be
lieves gossip to be malicious and
evil, is hersel'f the busiest tale
bearer in the play. Her chatter,
however, has not the sharp wit of
Lady Teazle’s nor the malice of
Lady Sneerwell’s, so it often hap
pens that on her zeal to defend
someone, she seals his fate.
Maria, the ward of old Sir Peter,
is being played by Betty Belle Wise.
Maria, is the one personage of the
pl'ay that is not engaged in either
disseminating or refuting scandal.
She abhors it, and throughout the
play remains consistent. Maria has
many lovers, and many intrigues
are built around her. Miss Wise
is new in the department this year,
and has shown herself very able
is her interpretations.
The irascible Sir Peter, one of
the central figures of the comedy,
will be portrayed by Bernard Mc
Phillips. Mr. MePhillips is well
qualified to play the part of the
irritable, egotistical but lovable
old gentleman. The role of Sir
Peter is famous. Having been an
old bachelor until a short time pre
viously, when he had married a
saucy young country maid, he is
cantankerous at times, although he
sincerely loves his pert little wife;
he even enjoys quarreling with her.
The two nephews, Joseph and
Charles Surface, are being played
by Darrell Larsen and Dave Swan
son. Joseph, the irreproachable
young man with his smooth sua
vity and his righteously malevo-j
lent insinuations, will be por
trayed by Darrell Larsen. Mr. Lar
sen ’s cleverness at such character
izations is well known on the cam
pus. Joseph stands well with the
“School of Scandal,” all reports con
cerning him point to the fact that
he must be ;i most sober and in
dustrious young man and he himself j
is very careful to spread 'these re- '
ports as far as possible for reasons \
of his own.
Charles, on the other hand,
is said to be a dissipated j
reveler, spending riotously all his j
uncle’s money. Stories of tlie ,
blackest kind are continually cir- ;
dilating about him, involving him in
such troubles that even Maria, his
sweetheart, refuses to see him. His .
rich uncle arrives in England to !
select his heir from the two youfcg
men anti finds him in a somewhat
intoxicated state selling the family
portraits. Dave Swanson is a gifted
actor and his portrayal of the
prodigal will doubtless be skillful.
Virgil Mulkey is playing the
part of the wise old uncle, Sir
Oliver, who returns from India to
test his two nephews. His under
standing of human nature is intelli
gent and is aided by a sense of
humor. Mulkey has appeared in
Guild Hall productions before, and
an accomplished performance is ex
Paul Krausse plays the knave,
Snake, who is an accomplished ras
cal. He is leagued with Lady
Sneerwell in her machinations, and
with the aid of his skill in forgery,
lays many a plot. In the end. he
proves to be a consistent rogue in a
surprising way. The parts that Mr.
Krausse has taken have stood out
well and he is proving adept in his
portrayal of the scoundrel, Snake.

making four points. The half ended
17 to 8 in Oregon’s favor. The
second half was nearly like the
first in scoring, with the Aggies
showing brief spurts, but Oregon
maintaining a safe distance.
Diminutive Shafer, Oregon guard,
played stellar ball, repeatedly
breaking through the O. A. C. de
fense for shots and baskets. He
was high-point man of the fray
with nine markers to his credit.
Besides this, he held Gill, the crafty
Aggie forward, to one field goal.
Gillenwaters repeated his. per
formance of Friday night, and
proved his: worth as a 'valuable

Ridings Is Runner-up
Ridings looked the best for the
visitors and was runner-up to Shafer
for high points, with eight marks,
all of them from the field. Gill,
his running mate at forward, played
a fast floor game, but had no luck
with his long shots last night, and
he was unable to dribble past the
Oregon defense.
The game last night had nothing
to do with the standing of the two
teams in the conference, due to a
ruling of last year which made only
the first game of a two-game series
a conference game. The contest
will, however, have to do with estab
lishing the unofficial state cham

The great war marked the end of
an epoch in human history. Try as
we may we cannot reconstruct the
old world of before the war. It is
like a picture puzzle which has been

that when We try to ut it together
again, we find that many of the
pieces are irreplacably lost.
But during the war years and
since three great men spoke and
built somewhat phophetically with
their eyes turned toward the future
rather than the past. Two of them
have just died and one wears his

'defensive spread of the freshmen
made it especially difficult for the
Rooks to break through for close
shots at the hoop.
The Rooks after finishing the first
half on the short end of a 7 to 18
score, played much better ball in the
final period. Their teamwork was
better and they worked the ball down
faster. Graap was the outstanding
player for the visitors and he caged
11 points for them.

If the Saturnian has an eight
o ’clock, a frosh must be assigned
to arouse him from an untroubled
sleep at exactly fifteen minutes to
eight. It would be folly to dis
turb him five minutes earlier. His
wrath is terrible. Homer could have
composed an epic about it. How
ever, the Saturnian has no parti

first morning class. And woe to
the unwitty freshman who forgets
his task. For only this and this
many cuts are allowed, and a
Saturnian has never been known to
cut with foresight.
Someday a Saturnian is going to
be killed. There are some students
who are merely naturally or or
dinarily intelligent. They do not
need to irritate their brains into
a condition of thinking; they do not
find it necessary to flagellate their
senses into a state of appreciation,
or drink tea (tea can mean any
thing here) at the proper hour in
order to produce a conversation.
Someday a Saturnian is going to
make a mistake, a little error. He
is going to awake one of these
ordinary persons, in the enthusiasm
of one of his coffee symposiums,
from a most comfortable sleep, and
ask this 'ordinary person jn his
drawling, earnest voice, "Do you
really believe in God?” or “After
all, what is mankind coming to1?’’
Of course, the drowsy person will
hesitate a minute.

are of the type used in pioneer
times, and the bearded man wears
the rough and ready garments of
the outdoors. One significant fea
ture of the design, below the words
“Old Oregon Trail” is the skull of
an ox with its horns, indicative of
the bones that strewed the way of
the trail and its hardships.
The design is to be the emblem
of the Old Oregon Trail associa
tion, as well as the marker. It will
be copyrighted, and used on seals,
stamps, photographs, and postal
cards to be sent out by the asso
ciation. The marker relief will not
be the end of Mr. Fairbanks’ ef
forts with the composition, since
he plans to work it out in the round.
A small study in the round has
already been begun, and was used
in studying the problems for the
The main problem was to elim

out, and the convergence of lines,
the balancing of one mass against
another, bear up under any artistic
standard. Then there was the
problem of the large mass of the
wagon as compared to the amount
of life in the composition. This
was managed by having the
schooner ascending the rock and
slightly turning on its wheels, and
by the presence of the woman in
side. The man and the oxen give
the whole thing a vitality and force
that is striking.
Contrary to the idea of the west,
that exalts the rougher element of
Indians and cowboys, Mr. Fairbanks
has depended on the sincerity and
wholesome purpose of the family
and the home-builder. It is this
spirit of western life that he has
embodied in the composition that
