    McArthur Court
Probably to Be
Scene of Prom
Decorative Plan Indefinite;
Directorate Committee
Decide on Features
Flans for the biggest, and most
original Junior Prom in tlie history
of the University were begun last
night at five o’clock when the di
rectorate, headed by Bill Powell,
held its first meeting.
McArthur court will probably be
the scene of the Prom, which will
be given on Saturday, May 21, the
night after the canoe fete. The size
of the building will demand very
elaborate decorations, and several
different ideas arc under considera
tion by the decorating committee,
although none have as yet been def
initely decided upon.
The committee anticipates a rec
ord breaking crowd since the acces
sibility of the building—if the
dance is held in McArthur court—
will probably influence some persons
to go, who would not if it were held
down town in the Armory, as has
been the case in former years.
Several novel features are al
ready under consideration, and the
committco in charge promises some
thing entirely new in the way of
Those assisting Bill Powell on the
directorate are Mark Taylor, as
sistant chairman; Ed Crowley, fi
nance; Stuart Ball, chairman decor
ations; Nancy Peterson, assistant
chairman decorations; Harold Soc
olofsky, music and features; Eliza
beth Waara, patrons and patron
esses; Alice Douglass, refreshments;
Lucille Brown, programs; Eugene
Gray, floor and clean-up; Frances
Cherry, publicity.
Last year the Junior Prom was
given amid a northern scene, em
bodying all the old Scandinavian
folk loro, and myths. The year be
fore that the sceno was laid in a
medieval castle with its grim stone
walls, and lofty towers.

The Oregon glee club played be
fore more than 15,000 people when
appearing at the Broadway theater
at Portland last week, and received
some highly creditable reviews in
the newspapers there. The hit of
the show with the Portland audi
ences was the pantomime, “And the
Lamp Went Out,” read by Cecil
Matson and played by a group of
four. The female impersonation of
Ward McClellan in this was so well
done that most of the audience—
at least that portion in the rear of
the theater—didn’t realize that the
leading lady was really a “he.”
The appearances on Monday,
Tuesday and Wednesday will be in
conjunction with the regular mov

will be given at 4 o ’clock in the
