One of the delegates had been ad

way in which it is kept, but when he
saw the sign advertising the new
Pine Arts building, which is to be
constructed soon, he was heard to
remark that he thought that the
University should allow no adver

Old Chinese Paintings Recall Beauty
And Splendor Of Ancient Dynasties
\ --
Perfection of Design Still Retained; Panels Show
Characteristics of Their Periods
Mellow browns, soft blues, rich
old roses, and other shades sugges
tive of another age, an age when
Oriental rulers were truly monarehs
of all they surveyed—an age when
splendor, brilliant and colorful, sur
rounded those lords and masters who
ruled grandly and ruthlessly—hang
from the walls of the exhibiting
room in the school of art and archi
tecture building this week. They
seem to lend to the room a feeling
somewhat mysterious, (somewhat
reminiscent of those days when
they, in all their brilliance of color
adorned the walls and screens of
some Chinese lord. Today they are
faded, but with their fading has
come an added mellowness, a soft
ness, a rich glow which has manag
ed to atone for the loss of their or
iginal gayety.
As one glances around the room
letting his eyes linger here and
there upon some very lovely paint
ing, he sees some which are still
quite well preserved regardless of
years of gradual fading, others
quite brown with age. Some are so
old, so brown, that they look as
though they had been discolored
perchance by the heavy smoke of
an opium den. These are among
the most charming of tho group.
In all of them are found charac
teristics of the dynasty during
which they were painted. If the
paintings are closely studied accord
ing to their respective dynasties it
can be seen that Chinese art of that
time went through various stages
just as art did some hundreds of
years later in Europe. Several
pieces displayed which are fruit of
the renaissance period that took
place in the Ming dynasty are very
pleasing. They show a brilliance
and elegance in treatment.
In all these works the pattern is
of greatest interest, as it is in all
Chinese art. They are all highly
decorative and most of them seem
almost perfect in design. Their
rhythm is very pleasing as is their
balance, unity, and harmony. Be
ing an artist who is most interested
in the- decorative effect of his work,
the Chinese devotes himself large
ly to detail. His mastery of it is
beautifully presented in all of these
The entire group of paintings in
this showing are examples of the
best art of these periods and beauti
ful remembrances of a people who
were masters of their work.

Hartley Action
Dr. Suzzallo Honored at
Luncheon; Resolutions
Show Spirit
The policy of Governor Hartley
and his board of regents toward
higher education in general and the
University of Washington in partic
ular, was criticised yesterday in a
resolution passed by a group of
Washington alumni residents in Eu
gene. The occasion was a luncheon
at the Anchorage yesterday noon,
tendered Dr. Henry Suzzallo, lately
deposed from the presidency of the
University of Washington by a
board of regents whose majority
was appointed by Governor Hartley.
It was explained by those pres
ent at the luncheon that the res
olutions were introduced on the in
itiative of Dr. Suzzallo’s hosts and
that they were passed without any
suggestion on his part that action
be taken. The resolution, signed by
twelve former Washingtonians, fol
“Besolved, that we, graduates,
former students, and friends of the
University of Washington, deplore
the spirit of uninformed hostility
toward higher education which char
acterizes the policy of the present
governor of Washington, as worked
out by his board of regents;
“That in our opinion time will
reveal an increasing harvest of ills
for the university through the ar
bitrary acts of those on whom the
control of a great educational in
stitution has been unwisely bestow
“That the people of the state of
Washington should, at the earliest
opportunity, come to the rescue of
their system of higher education
and reassure the friends of the uni
versity and enlightened observers
the country over that the institu
tion which means so much to the
future of Washington is not to be
thrown to the wolves by politicians
who neither love it nor understand
Those present at the meeting
were: Dr. Henry Suzzallo, former
president of the University of Wash
ington, who was a guest of the
group; Kai Jensen, instructor in the
school of education; Stanley Orne,
representative of the Oregonian;

Kappa Sigma in
Over-time Play
Game Ends 19 All; Extra
Ten Minutes Needed
For Play-off
Story book basketball featured
the Fiji victory of 23 to 21 over
Kappa Sigma yesterday afternoon.
Two periods of over-time play, fivo
minutes each, were needed to reach
a decision.
With the tally 21 to 19 in favor
of the Kappa Sigs, and with only
10 seconds left in the first over
time stanza, Gray, Fiji forward,
heaved the ball toward the basket.
Up it arched, then swooped down-'
blew his whistle to end the game,
ward, and just as the time-keeper
the spheroid swished through the
basket in regulation fiction style.
The second and last over-time
period waf more cautious, each
team fearing the results of fouling
an opponent. Hosford converted the
winning goal for Phi Gamma Delta.
Good basketball was played by
both teams, neither having a partic
ularly outstanding star, though Mc
Kay, Kappa Sigma, and McDonald,
Fiji, had an edge on their cohorts
in marksmanship.
Sigma Phi Epsilon trounced Al
pha. Beta Chi in a one-sided mas
sacre following the Fiji-Kappa Sig
struggle, the final count being 32
to 7. Bichard “Big” Horn, lengthy
Spee center, chalked up 14 points
on his own account.

On Sigma Chi Corner
For Pajamerino
Starting from tho Sigma Chi cor

liveliest Homecoming rallies ever
given before a Webfoot grid clash.
From this corner, all tho men on
tho campus will start a pajamerino
parade to tho armory. Tho commit
tee in charge of tho parade have put
but one restriction on tho attire for
the evening—that it not bo formal.
Pajamas or any clever costume will
bo very much in place for the even
The route of tho parade is: start
ing from tho Sigma Chi corner and
down to Eleventh street; down Elev
enth to Willamette and from there
over to the armory. A colorful spec
tacle will bo presented when the
rally-marchers go down to the arm

flaming torch.
wnen the parade reaches 'Willam
ette, it will bo temporarily halted to
view the firework display on top of
Skinner’s butte. Immediately after
this display, the “Flaming O” will

burning of this large “O” will cast
a glow over the entire city.
After the burning of the “O,” the
rally pajade will march to the arm

gram has been arranged. The Ore
gon band, in new uniforms, will
play a part in the program, while
the American Legion drum corps
will be on hand to furnish some
lively music.
In the lino of speakers and other

Dr. Paxson Declares
Borders Bar Solution
Eva Emery Dye Calls First
Schools Frontier Forts
"VrESTERDAY’S program of the
symposia, which included sub
jects of history and social science,
was developed by six speakers, all of
national prominence. Dr. Frederick
Logan Paxson, professor of history in
the University of Wisconsin, talked
on “The Trail of Our Border.” Dr.
| TIenry D. Sheldon, dean of the
school of education, detailed “The
Pioneer Stage in the History of the
University of Oregon, 1872 to 1885.”
“Forts on the Frontier” was hand
led by Mrs. Eva Emery Dye. The
morning’s symposium was conclud
ed by Dr. Joseph Schafer, super
intendent of tho Wisconsin State
Historical society, who spoke on the
problem of “Modernizing tho Uni
versity of Oregon.”
Speakers for the afternoon social
science symposium were Dr. Frank
LeRond McVey, president of the
University of Kentucky, whose sub
ject was: “The University as a Me
diator;” and Dean Willard Eugene
Hotchkiss, dean of tho graduate
I school of business, Stanford univer
sity, on “Human Relations in In
Borders Are Barriers
Dr. Paxson, in his address on
“The Trail of Our Border Life,”
declared that American life is still
traveling in “border ruts;” i. c.,
influences resulting from pioneer
life. Dr. Paxson, one of the best
known historians of the West, was
the first speaker of the history sym
posium held yesterday morning at
nine o’clock ^in tho music audito
Among the modern problems whose
lack of settlement he attributed to
pioneer customs were prohibition,
farmer’s surplus and the Monroe
doctrino as tho most successful pol
“It may be laid down as an axiom
that when the governing centers
in our life have enacted regulations
that depend upon personal assent
for their enforcement, those regula
tions have had little weight upon
the border unless they have harmon
ized with the local opinion there,”
Dr. Paxson said.
Jjocai option Needed
He developed this idea from the
days when smuggling of slaves, and
earlier still of ammunition, up to the
present time when bootlegging is
the main source of worry to those
Volstead sympathizers.
As a moans of overcoming this
problem, the speaker advocated loc
al legislation for local problems, and
national handling of only the prob
lems that are not sectional in na
ture. Through no other means will
all be willing to follow the laws,
and will all judge without personal
feelings entering in when voting.
Hr. H. D. Sheldon spoke on “The
Uioitecr Stage in the History of the
University of Oregon, 1872 to 1885."
In tracing the growth which was
inspired by the National Ordinance
of 1787 which set aside two town
ships in each state as providing rev
enue for educational institutions,
I)r. Sheldon said: “In 1872, $40,000
school lands in Oregon and the gov
ernor at that time proposed that
the money be turned over to the
community who put up a building."
Eugene Gets School
Eugene, although solicited by
Thomas F. Campbell of the school at
Monmouth to aid that town in pro
viding the required building, saw
its own opportunity, and with the
help of local people, gained the
state’s promise to establish the
school here if it could construct a
$50,000 building within the next two
years. This time was extended an
other two years however, because
the plan of individual taxation and
of popular subscription, arranged by
the Union University Association of
Eugene and which was hoped to
bring in the required sum, was a
