Sidelights and
Encores on
Junior Vodvil
Students Work Praised;
Program Abounds in
Color and Variety
With the exception of George
White’s Scandals and l^iegfield’s
Pollies there is not a peer to be
found to Barney’s maids. For uni
formity, beauty and natural grace
they are perfection. The Yod-vil
has seldom before presented such a
pleasing chorus as in this year’s
Gaieties. Barney is the man who
deserves a lot of praise for the
success of the Vod-vil. He is to
be commended on his chorus. As
Jack Seabrook says, “It’s a Wow.”
One of the most interesting dances
is the Mutzig-Wairner ;ball room,
dance. There was some fear at
first that it would never be pre
sented. At rehearsal, Bob- was very
careless and several times nearly
dropped Katherine.
The boys finally get a taste of
April Frolic in the April Follies
act, which was the senior number
at April Frolic. It is a sea scene
and very well acted throughout.
DeLoris Pearson is the best look
ing sailor boy that ever sailed the
seven seas.
One thing that has puzzled the
audience at the Vod-vil is how
Sara Benethum can so ably portray
the girl friend under the influence
of liquor. Sara says that- she has
had no actual experience.
We wonder where Milton George
and Etha Clark acquired their pro
ficiency in the dances of old Spain.
Moreover, William Forbis’ singing
has a peculiar native quality that
suggests a real Castilian voice. They
may be amateurs, but amateurs or
not they are to be complimented up
on putting on an unusually good
une parr ox xne piugiau*
lends a classic, piquant, and dainty
note to the program is the toe dance
])v Lillian Bennet. Liftian’s twink
ling toes seem to lend the finesse
to the program that every Yod-vil
strives to have.
Most of the men -who saw the re
hearsals of the Yod-vil and heard
Barney tell his pretty maids where
to “head in at” in no uncertain
manner and have them like it, have
changed their aim in life. Their
sole ambition now is to be McPhil
lips IT in the 1928 or 29 Vod-vil.
It certainly must be a great satis
faction to be able to tell ’em.
One of the cleverest bits of the
entire show is the dance by Bose
Bobcrts and Carlotta Nelson. We
would recommend that they change
their majors from Art and Bom
ance Language to dramatics.
All in all, the Vod-vil’s acts are
clever and original, with the talent
to put them over. Last night’s
audience did not stint its show o£
enthusiasm and appreciation.

Hall Unable
to Give Spring
Address Here
Teaching Engagements in
East Prevent Early Ar
rival on Campus
Co-operation Shown
Deeply Appreciated
Executive and Wife Look
Forward to Fall Trip
JJUE to circumstances which will
not permit him to leave his pres
ent position until fall, Dr. Arnold
B. Hall will not be able to deliver
the commencement address at the
University of Oregon.
In a letter addressed to the ad
ministrative committee of the Uni
versity, Dr. Hall states that it will
probably be impossible for him to
come to Oregon until shortly before
the opening of the fall term.
Appreciation Felt
“I wish to assure you of my very
deep appreciation of your cordial
I telegram of April 16,” said Dr. Hall
I in his letter. “While it was a dif
ficult decision, now that the die 'is
1 cast, Mrs. Hall and I are looking
| forward with real eagerness and en
1 thusiasm to the opportunities that
seem to lie ahead. We are greatly
encouraged and delighted with the
flood of telegrams and messages
bearing assurances of the splendid
cooperation that 'awaits us. I covet
the most intimate and friendly re
lations with the members of your
splendid faculty, and my hope is
that I may be increasingly helpful
to them in the realization of their
scholarly ambition and in enlarging
their capacity to serve the people
of the state.”
Dr. Hall had a position to teach(
in an eastern summer school and
had also planned to attend several
research meetings that are sched
uled for the latter part of the sum
mer. Since these engagements were
made before he was chosen presi
dent, he is unable to break them.
Gilbert Speaker at
Meeting of County
Bankers Association
Dr. James H. Gilbert, acting dean
of the college of literature, science,
and the arts, and head of the econ
omics department, addressed the
j Lane Counfy Bankers Association
Thursday night at the hotel Osborn.
] His subject was “Changing Moods
| in the Business World.”
i He explained the peculiar psy
i chology of booms and panics and
showed that in both periods the be
havior of the business world is char
; aeterized by a lack of reason and by
the primal instincts of cupidity and
j fear. “The over-optimism of the
boom period gives rise to inflated
capitalization and exaggerated es
: timates of land values. Businesses
are financed on the basis of inflated
valuations by bankers who are like
wise affected by too rosy a view
of the future,” the speaker stated.
The collapse of the speculative
I boom brings loss to the speculator
i and to the bank on which he de
pends for financial backing, accord
ing to Dean Gilbert.
! “The remedy,” said the speaker,
“so far as a emedv can be found,
lies in education to the point where
reason is always in the ascendancy.”
Poisonous Scorpion
Captured by Professor
A small poisonous scorpion about
an inch and a half long was recent
ly discovered by Eyler Brown, in
structor in architecture, when he
lifted a box on the back porch of
his house at 1953 Garden street.
This is the second one which has
been found on his premises, the
other having been killed during the
constructing of the building.
The scorpion was brought to Dr.
Harry B. Yocom of the zoology de
partment a few days ago. At the
time it was very much alive and
thrived on spiders and insects until
yesterday afternoon when it be
came suffocated by the heat of the
sun and quietly died.
There are about 300 species of
this nocturnal insect. Their stings
are painful and sometimes fatal.
Scorpions are common in the des
ert regions of the southwest but
are scarcely ever found in Oregon.

Work Commences
On Decorations
For Junior Prom
Men Prove Ability Before
Girls in Manipulating
Sewing Machines
With the arrival of 2,000 yards of
cloth and other material for con
struction and with the permission
to work in the armory before the
week, May 2 to 8, contracted for,
work in the Junior Prom has begun
in earnest.
Anne Wentworth of the decora
tions committee has been appointed
in charge of the sewing. Some of
the sewing has already been accom
plished, a group of juniors living
worked Thursday afternoon and
One of the features of the “sew
ing bee” was the demonstration of
domestic aptitude by Rolf Klep,
Howard Osvald, and Lowell Hob
litt, who taught the girls present a
few things about sewing machine
manipulation. Sewing will contin
ue this morning at 9:00 and it is
urgently requested that .there be
two junior representatives from
each living organization present.
With a good turnout it is expected
that the actual sewing will be com
pleted next week.
“I am very pleased with the way
things have been going,” declared
Phil Bergh, chairman of the Prom,
yesterday. “The enthusiasm and in
terest that has been shown by the
committee is really commendable.
However, it is imperative that more
junior girls assist in the sewing,
and junior men are invited to assist
in this task as well. The main ob
jective is to get the work done on
schedule time and yet make the
work as enjoyable as possible.”

Tennis Ball Sale Hits
Mark at Ten Gross
Areadv 10 gross of tennis balk
have been sold this pring by the
“Co-Op” store! To those unfort
unates who have forgotten that
moiety of arithmetic painfully
learned during high school days,
we will add that 10 gross is equal
to 120 dozen, which calculation
proves to the most skeptical, equals
1,440 balls, quite a high sales rec
ord for so early in the season.
The record so far this year is
higher than the total sales in tennis
balls for last year, and more than
were sold all together in the first
four years the store was operated.
Another 100 dozen balls have been
’ ordered. New shipments on this
order are being received every other
I day.
Track Artists
Vying for Trip
To Relay Meet
Tryout9 This Afternoon on
Hayward Field to Bring
Some Warm Battles
Hurdlers Expected
To Give Some Thrills
Coach Searches for Twelve
Men for Seattle
rpRYOUTS for the Seattle Belay
carnival on May 1 and the prun
ing down of an unwieldy frosh
track squad will occupy Bill Hay
ward’s afternoon today. These
cinder festivities will start prompt
ly at 1:30 for the freshmen and at
2:30 for the varsity try-outs. It looks
to be a big afternoon with full thir
teen events for the babes and five
for the varsity.
“It all depends on the showing
of the varsity men this afternoon
how many events we will enter in
the Seattle Relay,” said Bill Hay
ward. “If they come through with
the stuff we will probably take a
twelve-man team up there and will
probably enter five events.”
Hurdles in Keen Contest
The hardest battling of this after
noon is for the two places in the
high hurdles. The trio of varsity
men who have been tearing up the
cinders between the sticks have
been more than earnest in their ef
forts, and it’s no mean competition
that they have been putting up.
Ralph Tuck, the lanky “find” of
| the year, is likely to spring some
thing new this afternoon and run
away from the two veterans, Walt
Kelsey and Francis Cleaver. It will
be a race worth walking a mile to
The 220 tryouts for the four fast
est men to make up the half-mile
relay team will find nine of the
fastest sprinters whom Hayward has
been able to group together. Jer
ry Extra and Harry Holt, regular
varsity dash men will probably cop
the first two places. But the rest
of the pack will include no “slow
motioners” in the event. Proc
Flanagan is entering the event, with
Jack Renshaw and Bill Prendergast
of the super varsity. The three
hurdlers, Cleaver, Tuck and Kelsey,
are also taking a fling at the sprint.
Hampton Allen, late of the 440
squad, who showed power in the
furlong in the intramural track
meet, is another contender. This
promises to be another event where
the competition is exceptionallv
Price Back on Track
In the 440 yard tryouts for the
milp relay team the regular varsity
squad will gaa the one lap run for
all they are worth for the four high
est men. Joe Price, who has almost
recovered from his recent illness,
will be running his first hard com
petition in two weeks. Don Jef
fries, Paul Ager and LaVerne Pear
son complete the tryout list. If
these men can make comparatively
fast times in the event they will be
taken north. The mile relay en
try is probably the least sure of
any on the entry list.
The half-mile tryouts for the two
mile relay have the same group of
varsity men who have been'working
on the two lap run all season. The
question is, have they improved?
Will Overstreet be able to do any
thing this year? Will he get under
a 1:56 half mile. The whole half
mile situation at Oregon centers
around the lanky Overstreet, and
what he will be able to do will
be in a large measure determined
this afternoon, for he has had ample
time to do his stuff in training.
He will be hard pushed by Guy
Mauney, veteran of last year’s
squad, Ed Thorstenberg, another
“find” of the year and Ed Man
ning. Reuben Ross, varsity miler,
also will enter the event. Lester
Oehler is another promising candi
date for the two lap run.
Medley Runner Sought
The 1.120-yard run, or three laps
for the Medley will bring out Fern
Kelly, Ed Neidermeier and Ander
son this afternoon. The winner in
this run will compete in the med
ley relay.
The freshman squad, which now
numbers 90 candidates, will be cut
down to approximately 50 in the
meet this afternoon.

Varsity Wins
Over Pacific
By 17-8 Score
Baker, Varsity, Allows Four
Hits, One Run in
First Seven
Practice Tilt Second
Of Baseball Season.
First String to Meet Froslr
at 10 Today
JN A galaxy of hits, home ran*,
errors, stolen bases and a little
bit of everything in the baseball
curriculum, a baseball game which
would drive a score keeper to drink,
the varsity defeated the inexperi
enced Pacific University nine IT
to 8 on the new varsity diamond
yesterday afternoon.
Baker started on the mound for
the lemon-yellow horse hide chasers
and pitched good ball until relieved
by Williams at the beginning of the
eighth inning. During his stay on
the mound he struck out eight, al
lowed four hits and one run. Until
the fourth inning only one man
reached third.
Oregon started the game out in
earnest in their half of the first in
ning with three hits and three rnns.
“Plunks” Reinhart scored Oregon’s
first rill after getting on base on
balls. Bliss, Edwards and Adolph
next in line poled out nice bingles.
Pacific Scores In Sixth
Pacific’s first score came in the
sixth inning with two down, Elmer
Tucker, third baseman, played the
Babe Ruth role by knocking the
ball over the center fielder’s head.
The Badgers set upon Williams who
relieved Baker in the eighth, with
renewed strength and vigor. Wil
liams’ one inning was bad, allowing
the Pacific nine three bases on balls,
three hits and three runs. In their
half of. the ninth they touched
Walt Fenwick and Freddy West for
rour more run*.
Big Bull Edwards, right fielder,
with his big bat helped bring in a
number of runs. Edwards had a
great day at the bat getting four
hits out of five trips tothe plate.
Edwards, the first man up in the
third, knocked out in center field
with such force that the fielder let
it go on, and Edwards came in.
Bliss Showe Style
Jack Bliss, behind the windpad
in yesterday’s fracas, had a great
day until relieved by Mimnaugh in
the seventh. In four trips to the
plate he garnered two hits and two
runs. Jack’s second hit in the fifth
cleared the outfielder’s head for a
home run, scoring Reinhart. Hi*
lightning-like peg to second proved
very effective. In the fifth and
seventh he caught men stealing to
second. Lynn Jones, not to be out
done bv his team mates sent the ball
sailing with a terrific four-ply swat
in sixth, scoring Adolph ahead of
Lefty Rannow, Badger pitcher,
stuck to the hill throughout the
game. In the outfield one Pacifie
man stood out particularly. Aiken,
playing centerfield, played a stellar
game. He gets credit for five put
outs, several of which were one
hand stabs.
This morning at 10 o’clock the
varsity will face Coach Ellinger’*
Oregon freshman squad in the sec
ond practice tilt of the week-end.

Majority of Foreign Students Earn
Own Way, Says Mrs. C. R. Donnelly
Employment Secretary Admires Their Fur pose fulness
Variety of Work Fills Spare Time
“I sometimes wish that the Am
erican student might have the pur
pose the foreign student has,” said
Mrs. C. R. Donnelly, employment,
secretary at the Y. M. C. A., in a
recent interview. “He comes here
with a very definite purpose. Ho
has no time to waste, while many
of our own boys idle four years
away on the campus and even then
cannot decide what they wish to do
with themselves.
“The majority of the foreign stu
dents work their way through
school,” Mrs. Donnelly went on.
“There are about fifty foreign stu
dents on the campus and about
thirty-five of them are self-sup
porting. Of the thirty Filipino stu
detns here in Eugene, twenty-nine
are working their way, and the
thirtieth is now teaching. Two of
them are graduate assistants.”
Mrs. Donnelly spoke of these
boys as though she loved them, and
gave evidence of her personal con
tact with each one and with his
problems. She is of middle age,
grey-haired, with a forceful face.
A woman who knows what she is
about, but at the same time ig cap
able of deep sym/pathy and under
standing. A woman, too, of rare
good sense and judgment.
