Proving, For Men Only,
That the World is Smallest Today
The world is growing smaller.
One hundred years ago several seasons were spent in cross
ing what is now the United States. Seventy-five years ago it
was a matter of months. Twenty five years back it was a matter
of weeks, ten years ago it took several days, and now, with high
ways in the air it is little more than a matter of hours.
If this keeps up presently the Pacific Coast folks will throw
together a few sandwiches and spend the day listening to the
haranguing crowds in Hyde park, London. Or perhaps the
Louvre, or possibly a pleasant chat with a few amiable Latins
might suit the taste better.
“Too good to be true,’’ sighs the mournful collegian. “We
were born here, and here we shall die! But then—Oregon isn’t
Aye, quite wrong and quite right. We were born here and
most of us shall die here; and Oregon isn’t so bad. But that
is small reason why the Oregonian should tarry in Oregon all
his life. In fact, the native shm of Oregon who fails to pick
up his travelling togs and ramble is doing himself and his
community a rank injustice.
For instance, the collegian. When he has graduated he is
in the most care free period of his life. If fortunate, he has nio
lady love to hinder him. He has no family to care for, yet is
old enough to assume responsibility for his own actions. He
has no job that will suffer from his absence. From his Ameri
can university training he has gathered a fair basketful of
resourcefulness. His formal education will enable him to fairly
well understand what he sees. And travel—the finest teacher
at the post college period will assimilate and re-enforce his
formal education into an invaluable possession for the whole of
his remaining life.
And remember this: the world is growing smaller; but for
the college graduate of 1926 the world is never so small as
today. Every year out of college, with families, and jobs, and
worries and what-not, the world grows bigger and broader and
wider; and the young man who waits to> “go later” in nine
chances out of ten will never go at all.
So out and away, we cry! Let’s all go ’round the world!
even the best of philosophers can promise only one life on this
world, so why not make the most of it while we may?
No More Good Laughs
Until the Seven Seers Party
A gala occasion, was it not? And did you ever see such a
fine group of nominators?
Verily, we should say this: that nominators instead of
nominees should be elected to offices. Because persons (nom
inators) with the extraordinary powers of insight universally
displayed in ferreting out golden qualities (which no one else
had ever seen before) in the nominees, surely have the abilities
(as evidenced by this marvelous insight) to run student body
affairs much better than the nominees. Therefore, in view of
the great injustice to the student body in keeping out these
splendidly efficient and capable persons, the Emerald suggests
that the names of nominators in place of nominees, be entered
on the ballots next Wednesday.
(From all sides) Uuzzah! Iluzzah!
Last Call for Payment of Fees;
Why Throw Away Good Money?
Pay your fees. After Saturday noon, if fees are not paid,
the University will exact an extra three dollars and you will
be that much poorer.
Three dollars will buy a good book, or twelve gallons of
gasoline or sixty ice cream cones, all of infinitely greater value
to the collegian than three dollars blood money to the Uni
So pay your fees—today.

ORDER THE “O”
To Appear Here
Orchestra Directed by
George Barriere Will
The Little Symphony, organized
by George Barrere, which is to ap
pear here Monday night at the Me
thodist Church in the last concert of
the A.S.U.O. series for this term,
has been called the “best little or
chestra in the world.” It has en
joyed a distinctive place in the
musical world for a number of
years. Not only is the orchestra
famous itself for its intrinsic value,
but its director and founder is
classed among the great musicians
of the world.
“To criticise the Little Symphony
is a hard thing for me to do, for
I know Barrere best as a teacher
and a fine one at that. As imasteT
of his own instrument he excels,
and he knows music so well that he
can make his ensemble as fine as his
solo instrument. His explanations of
the program are truly delightful,”
said one of his flute students.
Mr. Barrere came to this country
in 1905 at the invitation of Walter
Damrosch, the leader of the NeV
York Symphony Orchestra, and he
has been a member of that organi
zation ever since. Barrere brought
to America something besides his
reputation and his flute—he brought
with him an active mind and a
In 1910 he revived the “Society
of Modern Wind Instruments”
which he had organized in Europe,
under the title of the Barrere En
semble—consisting of flute, oboe,
clarinet, bassoon, and horn, an or
ganization especially adapted to
programs of %n intimate nature.
In 1924 an organization known
as the Little Symphony under the
direction of George Barrere came
into existence. Brought into being
ostensibly at a concert for the ben
efit of the American Bed Cross, it
attained such distinction and suc
cess as to warrant its continua
tion. In reality it became the suc
cessor to the Barrere ensemble with
an additional trumpet, tympani,
and string choir, and this little
orchestra of thirteen renders music
in such ^delicate and captivating
a fashion that it imparted practic
ally a new character to it. Bar
rere has succeeded in bringing to
light many of the effects often lost
in the larger orchestral renditions
due to his skill in adapting them
to the intimacy of chamber music
The coming of this orchestra will
offer a unique program for the cam
pus music followers. Nothing of
this kind has ever before been pre
sented before the student body, and
a large crowd is anticipated.

Summer School Plans
Compiled by Stetson
Ready to Distribute
The bulletin published by the Un
versity announcing the summer ses
sions plans, came off the University!
Press yesterday. The forty page
bulletin was compiled by Prof. F.
L. Stetson, director of the Eugene
summer sessions and Dean Alfred
Powers, director of the summer se
sions. It gives an outline and de
scription of the courses to be taught
both in the regular summer and the
post summer sessions.
This year will mark the twenty
second annual summer sessions' of
the University held simultaneously
on the campus and in the Port
land center. The Eugene session
will be devoted largely to instruction
of a specialized, advanced, or grad
uate nature. Elementary courses
will be given in subjects for which
the demand is heavy, or which will
necessitate the use of specialized
facilities. In the Portland center,
under-graduate courses, of a more
general or popular appeal will be
offered and advanced work will be
restricted to courses in which sub
stantial enrollment can be predict
The summer session staff will
be composed largely of members of
the University faculty. Ten in
structors from other institutions and
public school administrators from
other states will give special cours
