VOLUME XXVI UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 7, 1925 NUMBER 51 (MOUSE MOKE PICTURES Personal Photographs Are Larger; Designs Follow Line of Simplicity PAGES TO NUMBER 480 January 14 Set for Campus Subscriptions; Y e a r Books Will Cost $4.50 Simplicity of ornamentation and the superlative of quality in art work and pictures will be the most significant attributes of the 1925 Oregana, is the word given out by Augusta DeWitt editor of the an nual. These two principle features will be followed consistently throughout the year-book. With this object in view, an at tempt has been made to subjugate the monotonous border designs “ud heavy backgrounds and at the same time to place greater emphasis on the clearness and appropriate ar rangement of the pictures and il lustrations. Rolf Kelp, art editor of the 1923 Oregana, in conjunction with the University art department, has completed decorations which will, it is thought, greatly enhance the general atmosphere of the year book and. make the production of distinctive artistic value. The photographs, taken by the Kennell Ellis studio, are to be larger and clearer than in former years, since it is deemed that the personal pic tures are of primary interest and importance. Printed Matter Cut Printed matter in the different sections will be cut to the minimum to allow increased space for ath letic and general campus scenes. Some sections of the book will be shortened and others lengthened in an endeavor to place greater stress on the more interesting occurrences of campus life. The editors of the feature section claim they have a few incriminating surprises to re lease, involving campus idols and the sports editor, George Godfrey, says he has pictures of vital per iods in Oregon football games which could well be framed. In fact, in all possible ways, the Oregana staff is endeavoring to make the year-book as attractive as possible, both to the students on the campus and to the alumni and former students of the University. The aim is to make it worth the cost price both in the sense of its artistic qualities as a book, and from the standpoint of the interest a publication of its kind naturally has. Line Drawings Ujed The cover of the Oregana will be a medium shade of blue, gold lettered, and with a facsimile of the famous Pioneer supported by the library as a background, placed in a half-circle in the upper center of the page. Section heads are to be line drawings by Rolf Klep and (Continued on Page Four) Sixteen Students Register in New Pottery Course , A new two-term course in the making of pottery has been begun in the school of architec ture and allied arts, taught by Professor N.

"Hamlet” will be the offering at night, while in the af ternoon the artist will depart from the Stratford playwright, and offer Dumas’ “Three Musketeers.” Both performances will be at the Heilig theatre. For the evening performance stu dents and faculty of the University are offered a liberal reduction iin seat prices. The request for this came from Mr. Leiber himself, who remembered his warm reception at his last appearance here, when he was well received at the theatre, and royally entertained on the cam pas. It is in “Hamlet” that Mr. Leiber made his debut in Shakespearean drama, and his interpretation of this great part has been lauded by none less than George Jean Nathan, edi tor of “The American Mureury,” as the best presentation on the American stage today. Mr. Leiber is young, and his work reflects the vi tality and vigor of his personality. In both “Hamlet” and “The Three Musketeers,’’ the artist was excep tionally well received in Portland, where he created a sensation in theatrical circles. Floyd Maxwell, now dramatic critic of the Oregon ian, and former editor of the Emer ald, praised him highly. The tickets entitling students to the reduction in seat prices have been distributed to all houses on the campus. These tickets must be pre sented 'at the time of purchase, if the reduction is desired. Those not in organizations may obtain tickets at the Co-op, or from the depart ments of English or dramatics. ‘Yellow Candle Light’ With Three Other Productions Scheduled for This Term SCENERY IS REMODELED Miss Charlotte Banfield Honored By Performance To Be Staged Here Soon “Yellow Candle Light,” a musi cal fantasy by Fergus Reddie, head of the dramatic department and Perry Arant, western pianist and composer, will be the first produc tion on the program of the Univer sity dramatic department. Oscar Wilde’s “An Ideal Husband” will be the next play given, and the third and perhaps the most preten tious offering will be the Arabian play “I-Iassan” by the late James Elroy Flecker. At the very end of the winter term a farewell play to Charlotte Banfield, of the dramatic department, callod “Gioconda” will be given, with Miss Banfield in the leading part. Play All Oregon Talent “Yellow Candle Light” will be given five performances starting January 28 and playing until the 31, with a special matinee on Satur day afternoon January 31. This will be the first time that a musical fantasy has been attempted on the Oregon campus which is wholly original and by distinctly Oregon talent. The production here at Eu gene will be “Yellow Candle Light’s” premiere. “Hassan” is a colorful Arabian play by the English poet Flecker, the setting of which is in ancient Bagdad in the time of the mythical Calif Haroun A1 Rashid, about whom stories and poems have been written ever since the original Arabian Nights. It has gorgeous settings, very difficult to stage, but so picturesque and different that the first performances given a year ago in London were highly ac claimed and have caused much com ment among theatre goers. Miss Banfield to Star ‘'Gioconda” by the famous Ital ian war poet, Gabriele D’Annuncio, will be given at the very last of the term. Miss Banfield will por tray the part which Elanora Duse created and made famous. Miss Banfield is leaving the University at the beginning of the spring term and the performance of “Gioconda” by the department will be in the na ture of a farewell to her. During the Christmas holidays, considerable money was spent in making and remodeling all of the scenery in the department so that the forthcoming productions will have all-new scenic effects.

Shields’ Benefit Game Nets $5,000 For Ex-Gridster Responding in commendable fashion to support the Shield’s benefit game, Oregon alumni, stu dents and friends of Tiny Shields, injured Oregon ex-grid captain, raised over $5,000 to aid Tiny in his fight for health. The game was held at Portland on Christmas day between former Oregon grid stars and Multnomah gridsters. After battling for four periods on a field covered with ic-e and snow, the Oregon alumni team, emerged victorious by a six point margin. The tal ly was the result of a line plunge by Lynn Jones who carried the ball across the line for the lone score of the contest. The benefit drive for selling tickets to this grid tilt was con sidered very successful by the committee in charge of the drive. Over 1,200 tickets were disposed of on the University campus, while many pasteboards were bought by people throughout the United States.

HOOP GAME SET Oregon to Play Willamette Bearcats at Armory In First Collegiate Fray MARSHFIELD DEFEATED Reinhart Has Team Work ingSmoothly; Plans Laid For Three Year Program Foundations, good substantial foundations, are now being laid for a three year building program. The architect is Billy Reinhart, and tho structure, when completed three years hence, is expected to be the championship basketball team of tho Pacific Coast. But the building may rise faster than is anticipated, for the varsity basketball team is already working smoothly and efficiently, as the 59 15 score over the Marshfield Ameri can Legion last Saturday testifies. Only two lettermen, Hobson and Gowans, started in the fracas, yet the men worked like veterans against a five, all of whom were good basket ball players. Initial Contest Saturday Saturday night tho Oregon men will get their first intercollegiate test when they meet the Willamette Bearcats, at the Armory. William ette always has a fast and aggres sive five, and since they started practice much earlier than here an early season game is always dan gerous. The game will start at 7:30 sharp, it is announced. Reinhart has cut his squad to 13 men, and these 13 are expected to be the nucleus for the next three years. Only one man, Russ GowaiA, will be lost by graduation this year. Next year, but two, Hobson and Gillenwaters, will fulfill their three year terms. Although all the men will leave places' hard to fill, ample material is expected from the frosh by tho time the vacancies occur. Whilo a casual glance may lead to the belief that the Oregon five will be green and inexperienced this year, this can hardly be said to be the case. Only three letter men are back, but these include Hobson and Gowans at forward. This means that the two most im portant positions are well taken care of by a pair that have played together. Gillenwaters is back at ; guard. Utility Men Are Back Utility men back from last year have been showing up unusually well. Jost, understudy of the huge Hunk Latham, will make a strong bid for center. Stoddard is shooting well at forward, and Gun ther, at his tryout at Marshfield, ; performed with varsity-like speed and ability. From last years’ frosh comes a wealth of material. It is this bunch that cheers the heart of Reinhart. Not only are they good basketball men, but good students as well, and what is more, they readily grasp the important funda mentals of the game. The list is headed by Roy Okerberg, tall and ; lanky, who looks like one of the best center finds in some time. He also had his first chance with ! Marshfield, and contributed liber ally to the lop-sided score. “Swede” Westergren is almost a sure placer for guard, and will no doubt be a running mate for Gunth ‘ er or Gillenwaters. .Tames Rein hart, Billy’s brother, is also out for , this place, and though small, is speedy and aggressive. “Pat” Hughes will also be used here when i occasion requires. Fundamentals Are Taught For forwards the coach can call : on Earl Childs and Harold Lewel lyn when necessary. Both are good shots, and good floor men, and will be used when Hobson and Gowans can be spared from the game. Clar • ence Carter is out for center, and has been showing up well. Fundamentals in every depart ment of the game is the program so far this year, and this will bo , continued, Reinhart says. Team formation will come next, and de fensive and offensive combinations ; are now being worked out. Basketball is on a firm basis, with a dependable squad of men (Continued on Page Two) Tickets to Senior Ball Are Selling * Rapidly at Co-Op • 'Tho remaining tickets for the Senior Ball, which Is to be held on January 17 will be on salo at tho Co-op today. The salo will continue until these tickets are sold. By all indications the time will not be long the com mittee says. The dance is going to be the sensation of the year, according ta reports of the committees. Ed Bohlman, chairman of decora tions, states, “The success of a dance depends on the decorations. The decorations for the Senior Ball are going to be the best that I have over done.” Mary Skinner, feature, says, “Thero is nothing so important as the feature. Petroff and his ballet of Bussian dancers surely can dance the Samovar.” Martha Shull, patrons, is re ported as having said “Tho suc cess or failure of a dance depends solely on tho patrons. I’ve got j the swellest bunch of patrons that ever spilled a glass of punch over I their shirt fronts.” Bebocca Ireland, refreshments, says, “People como to a dance just to eat. We’re going to have some grand groceries at the Ball or I don’t know an oyster when I see one.” ... . . _ Mary Hathaway says, “Buy your tickets early. There are only a few left.” I I WELL KNOWN ALUMNI WED ON DECEMBER 30 Miss Grace Edgington, ‘Len’ Jordon United Coming as a complete surprise to their campus friends was word of the marriage of Grace Edgington and Leonard Beck Jordan on De cember 30, at Bend, Oregon.
