to interpret the masters by giving
forth their messages with all the
gifts of tradition, beautifully em
bossed with his own genius and
Mr. Spalding’s career is one of
color and unusually interesting ex
periences. He was selected as so
loist with the New York Symphony

services, he was decorated with the
Cross of the Crown of Italy by the

first American ever to sit as a
judge at the examinations of the
Paris Conservatoire.
“Mr. Spalding has Taised him
self to a place in the front rank

himself, to his country and to his
art. In beauty of tone and cor
rectness of style he commands con
stant admiration.” This comment

Mr. Hornblow in the Theatre
Magazine says of “Kempy:” “The
play contains all the ingredients a
veteran of the theatre knows so well j
how to employ—surprise, humor,'
clever lines, gaiety, human inter- j

rie-like quality—a play of fantasy j
and whimsical imagination that
makes the entire evening delightful

ambitions soaring far above his
trade, goes into a house to mend a '
pipe. When he quits his job, he

All Star Players Compete in
Close Game: Score Ends
In Favor of Blacks. 23-22
Grace Snook, Graduate of
l University, Referees Tilt;
Contest Nets Ten Dollars
The Women's basketball season
ended last night with a reverberat
ing bang. A series of long range
goals and swift passes marked the
struggle between two evenly
matched teams of the best mater
ial in the University. It was fought
out inch by inch and no one in the
audience could predict .the winner
until the game ended with a score
of 22-23 in favor of the .Blacks.
Wanda Plincz alternating with
j Margaret Pepoon played jump cen
j ter for the Blacks supported by
! Gohla Boone, side center, Char
' lotto LaTourette, Alta Knips,
| guards, and Grace Sullivan and
j Wilma Manly forwards. (On the
I White team were Mildred Crain,
I jump center, .Tanet Wood, side cen
j ter, Vesta Scholl and Mildred On
j slow, forwards, and Myrtle Mast,
j Alberta McMonies, guards.
Fast Flaying Featured
The whole four quarters were
very fast with no fouls. Mildred
Crain stood out for some excellent
passing. Golda Boone outdid her
self in brilliant playing; she is a
very fast player with a habit of
snatching the ball' out of the air
in unexpected leaps. Margaret Pe
poon and Wanda Plinez as alter
nating Black centers, played a dif
ferent type of game but evenly
I matched however in effectiveness.
Vesta Scholl displayed some good
work in close range shooting. Mil
dred (‘Buster’) Onslow played a
consistent game losing .no oppor
tunity for spectacular goals from
the extreme edge of the forward
court. In the first two quarters
Grace Sullivan did not come up to
her usual form. By way of making
up for it she did all the scoring
for the Blacks in the third and
fourth quarters.
Barbara Page Umpires
The game was played in six
minute quarters. Miss Grace Snook,
an Oregon alumnae now on the
physical education staff of the Sa
lem high school, refereed the game.
Miss Barbara Page, 01T the faculty
in the physical education depart
ment of the University, umpired.
The net proceeds of the game
amounted to about $10.

Detailed Program Given of
Today’s Events
“Getting other pooplo to see
things as you see them,’’ was the
definition of advertising given
by Coleman Cox, well known ad
vertising manager from San Fran
cisco, in an address Monday after
noon on “Advertising” at the
Retail Merchants association con
Impresions are advertising, lie
said, every man advertises all the
time whether he realixes it or not;
the place he lives in, the style of
clothes ho wears, his attitude on
life are the sources of impress
ions that he gives to others.
“Retailing is rendering service”
said Mr. Cox “and service is san
itation, health promotion and fair
play. ’ ’
One typo of advertising may be
a distinct advantage to one
business, he said, while it may bo
worthless or even detrimental to
another. Various, forms of ad
vertising should be correlated,
he explained and illustrated it in
the example that a street cur ad
vertising card can supplement
with a picture and a few words,
the idea that is told in a long
newspaper advertisement.

He was educated as a youth in
India, served under the British
crown, is a successful journalist,
and has lectured on three transcon

the Western peoples of many na

sonality, of magnetism, and of force.
Criticism of Europe Given
The handsome young Moham
medan is characterized by Eric W.
Allen, dean of the school of jour

in San Francisco two years ago, and

English which the speaker used.
“Hossain cleverly and effectively
criticized European nations and the
I nited States for calling themselves
Christians and showing so little of
the spirit of Christ,” Dean Allen
states in recalling Mr. Hossain's
Eastern Dissatisfaction Told
“Mr. Hossain believed that the
idea of Christianity was extremely
influential in the Orient, but that
the east was desperately dissatis
