1AH B. WISE TO SPEAK TODAY Jewish Religious Leader Scheduled for Address Before Weekly Assembly SPEAKER CAMPUS FRIEND “Some Creative Things and Their Evidences” Will Be Subject of Speech ■» » - Rabbi Jonah B. Wise, of the Jew ish synagogue, Temple of Beth Israel in Portland, comes to the campus today as an old friend, to give the address at the last as sembly of this term. “Some Cre ative Things and Their Evi dences” is the topic on which Rabbi Wise will speak. Rabbi Wise is considered a lib eral-minded man and a scholar by those who are familiar with his work. After his graduation from the Hebrew Union college at Cin cinnati, Rabbi Wise went abroad to study at the University of Ber lin and the University of Berne, Switzerland, and his manner re flects the charm of the old World spirit. Has Large Congregation Since 1910, Rabbi Wise has had charge of the largest synagogue in the state and has taken great inter est in social and educational move- . ments in Oregon. He has been a < member of the board of higher cur ricula of the state of Oregon for : many years. Rabbi Wise is said to possess a i very fine library in which are found some interesting old manuscripts, some of which have beein handed down for many years in his own ] family. The thing which has made him so well-liked throughout the ^ state, however, is the fact that he >' is a student of his fellow man as ■' well as of books, and he possesses \ that mellowness of spirit which comes from a comprehension of ;! both. His inimitable wit and ' charming personality have made , him especially popular as a public '■ speaker. Rabbi Wise is editor of the Jew-\ ish publication “The Scribe,” pub lished in Portland. He is also na tional president of the organiza- , tion, B’nai B’rith. t Mr. Demarest to Sing Appearing on today’s program as * soloist is Mr. Agnew Demarest, who 1 will sing “The Lord is Ny Light,” : by Prances Allippsen. Nr. Dem- ' arest, who with his wife has been conducting religious services in Eu gene, is said to be a descendant of both Lewis and Clark, early Ameri- , can explorers in the Oregon coun try. During his stay on the campus, Rabbi Wise will be the guest of Dr. E. S. Conklin. Last night he spoke at Alumni hall as one of a series of lectures given on religion. , Jaunts to Salem For Game Result In Colds on Campus Monday night’s jaunt to Sa lem to see the game didn’t do a lot in the way of enring colds, the authorities at the dispensary say. In most cases the students making the trip were not wrapped up warmly enough, got cold or wet, and then lost a lot of sleep. The result is that more people than usual with colds are coming to the dispensary for treatment. Several aggravated cases are in the infirmary, although they are not of a serious nature. Dr. S. N. Miller’s cautions at present is that the people in run down conditions and those with low vitality get enough sleep. With examinations coming there is a tendency to stay up late working on term papers or re viewing. “Most of the students come in and complain about feeling dull,” said Dr. Miller. “Well, I don’t wonder. It’s almost as hard on you physically as mentally to do a whole term’s work in one night.” TRADE JOURNALISTS WILL ATTEND SESSION Association Will Meet In Conference Friday The Trade Journal association svill be well represented at the seventh annual Oregon Newspaper Conference to be held on the cam pus, Fridav and Saturday, March L3 and 14.

The bill of fare should read, —A ragged piece of dramatic con struction raggedly presented.” Thirty-three persons appeared on the stage in the first performance of Mr. Reddie’s own masterpiece last night—three more than there were in the audience. Perhaps that explains the insufficiency of last night’s show: it is impossible to play up to an empty house. The one bright spot in “The Raggedy Man” is the marvelous acting done by Charlotte Banfield, in whose honor the production is being staged, in the part of Grand mother Squeers. Miss Banfield “does the honors” for the whole show. She is the whole show. This, her farewell appearance on the Guild stage, is an unwelcome fare well for the patrons of the little theatre. Her occasional appearance in campus dramatics more than atones for the low spots theatre goers are occasionally forced to suf fer. “The Raggedy Man" is a cari cature on the epoch of the Nineties, the epoch immortalized by James Whitcomb Riley. It is interesting, and it is amusing. We moderns en joy poking the finger of ridicule at our "primitive" ancestors, and say ing, “That’s what we have de veloped from.” The Raggedy Man" is, on the whole, excellent carica ture. Last night’s performance of “The Raggedy Man” marked a new low level in Guild hall productions. The local Thespians can now rest easy: they have done their worst and can do no worser. The future can hold only improvement. NOTED SPEAKER IS HERE TODAY College Students Will Hear Mrs. Demarest Talk This Afternoon in Villard Hall CAMPUS PEOPLE INVITED Revivalist is Descendant Of General William Booth, Salvation Armyi Founder Mrs. Victoria Booth-Clibbom Demarest, noted evangelist now giving a series of revival sermons in Eugene, will give a special lec ture to campus people this after noon at 4 o’clock in Villard hall. She will splak on the topic, “The Glory of Youth.” Mrs. Demarest was born in Paris where she lived the early part of her life. She speaks French as fluently as English. Her parents and grandparents were religious leaders in both Europe and Ameri ca,1 her grandfather, General Wil liam Booth, having started the Sal vation Army. As an evangelist, Mrs. Demarest is different from most revivalists. She speaks quietly to her aulience but in such an earnest and sincere manner that thousands are drawn to the auditorium in which she ap pears. The Eugene armory is filled daily when she gives her ad dresses, business men, townspeople and students flocking to hear her. Lecture not Revival Talk The address today will not be of a revival nature but will be a lec ture to University students on some of the vital religious questions they 1 face. As many students as can pos sibly come should hear the talk, said Henry W. Davis, head of the University United Christian work, under whose auspices the lecture ■ is being arranged. This will probably be the only time that the woman evangelist will appear on the campus as her series of addresses in Eugene will be over before the next term begins. She will speak on the problems of youth with a distinctly University point of view. Meeting Interdenominational The evangelist is not only a re vivalist but a vocal soloist as well and she will probably sing at the lecture this afternoon. Her down town audiences have been charmed by her vocal selections, given in English and French, according to Mr. - Davis. Both men and women are askel to come to hear Mrs. Demarest. The meeting will be en tirely interdenominational.

Saddling, bridling, correct mounting and riding a horse at a brisk trot, to a designated dis tance, and dismounting in correct form.

WISE TALK Causes of Differentiation of Hebrew Race Given Jonah B. Wise, noted Hebrew re ligious lecturer and student, in an address before a large [group of students and faculty members in Alumni hall last night, explained the origin and growth of the prin ciple that constituted the subject of his. discourse, “Judaism.” “The beginning of Judaism,” said Rabbi Wise, “was the view ing of human problems from the standpoint of the group instead of the individual. Different from contemporaries and all peoples since, the genius of the Jews ex hibited itself in fumbling and grop ing,—and out of this fumbling and groping was produced the Bible, which is a combination of all types of effort and thinking. “The term ‘chosen people’ does not nean that the Jews were chosen for special favors but for the respon bilities for which, by their adher ence to an ethical program, they were fitted. The entire Bible is built around an idea of human elec tion.” Mr. Wise accounted for the dif ferentiation of the Jewish race. “Palestine was a buffer country between the growing countries in Asia and those in Africa, which were constantly in conflict with each other. Through many succes sive invasions the country was im proverished. Out of poverty two things can come, a remarkable hardihood or a pitiful acceptance of the condition. Prom the poverty of the Jews there developed a re markable hardihood,” he said. The hardiness of the Jews com bined with their intense religious views resulted in the impregnation of the religions of the millions of Europe and Asia with an appreci able coloring of the Jewish faith. All attempts to nationalize the Jews have failed because the race, in view of their ethical program, is incapable of national consious ness. Their ethical creed has made them unique among the nations of the world, according to the rabbi. CRAFTSMEN CHOOSE OFFICERS FOR YEAR John MacGregor, graduate stu dent in the law school, was elected to succeed himself as president of the Craftsmen club, University or ganization of Masons, at the annual election of officers held last night at the club house. Mr. MacGregor was one of the founders of the club and was a member of the commit tee which secured from the Grand | Dodge of Oregon funds for the pres ent home of. th<* organization. Jer j ry Crary also was re-elected as sec retary. Other officers elected were, Al fred Lomax, vice-president; Ray Voegtly, treasurer; Bruce Curry, tyler; and Professor Frederick Dunn, member of the executive committee. Committee Reorganized for New Campaign to Secure Funds for Big Building COUNTY PLAN ADOPTED Girls of Campus Will Cover Entire State in Effort to Finance New Structure ■ I V-:- - ■ Plans for a $300,000 Art Museunt student campaign are being made this week by the women of the University, according to an an nouncement from the central com mittee in charge of the drive to day. The drive will be state-wide and will be attacked on the county basis. The art museum will be erected on the east side of Memorial court opposite the library in the proposed campus plan to house the Mary Warner and other collections. Mrs. George T. Gerlinger, Dean Virginia Judy Esterly and Miss Georgia Benson compose the central committee and have charge of the drive on the campus. The student campaign was started last fall, but it has been found necessary to re organize the work. Will Cover Counties It was originally planned to base the drive on the city plan, cen tralizing the committee work in towns and cities throughout the state. This plan has been aban doned for one covering the coun ties and the committee appointed at that time has been disbanded. Under the present plan chairmen will be in charge of their respective counties and will have under their direction subordinate committees. “In this manner the whole state will be covered through girls on the campus,” said Miss Benson, in announcing the campaign. “People will be asked for pledges in one of three ways: donation of money, sponsoring social affairs or dona tions for the bazaar.” At a meeting of the committees at 5 o’clock tomorrow in room 107 Architecture building, Mrs. Ger linger will speak on plans for the campaign. Dean Esterly will pre side at the meeting and urges all committee chairmen and members of committees who have been reached by them to attend, whether their names appear in the list fol lowing or not.
