The Frosh Glee, which provides
an opportunity for the freshmen to
show their skill at entertaining as
well as being one of the largest stu
dent body affairs of the year, has
been announced as taking place Sat

important because it is sponsored by
the seniors and because it neccssi
tates formal dress by both men and
women is the Senior Ball to be held
February 18, Saturday night. Inci
dentally, this excludes freshmen
from attendance on account of the
tradition that they cannot appear in

Dean Allen Writes
Article for Eugene
Magazine, ‘Oregon’ j
The vacation number of the state
magazine, “Oregon,” carries an
irticle, “The Friendly Neighbor—The
Newspaper,” by Erie W. Allen, dean
of the school of journalism at the
University of Oregon, in which a
personal interpretation of the im
portance of newspapers in Oregon
“In choosing a home or a homo
city,’-’ says Dean Allen, “the quali
:ies of the future neighbors are of
:he very first importance. And the
most intimate of all neighbors is
:ho family newspaper. Oregon is a
date that is blessed with good
lewspapers,” ho explains.
“Just why one state may have a
iress that is bad tempered, erratic,
. ulgar in attitude and a bit foolish
n the head, and another locality be
uidowed with newspapers that arc
sane, nobody knows. Yet there is
10 law against reasoning a bit on
In a brief summary of the life of
he press in this state, he said, “Ore
gon journalism is the oldest west
if the Hookies. It began with the
)regon City Spectator on February
>, 184(5. It is a press that seldom
oses- its head when jho recurrent
crazes’ of publicity sweep across
he 48 states. An astonishingly lafrge
iroportion of Oregon editors — the
eporters, sub-editors, and business
ffic-o workers, too—are men of ad
anced edtAation.” This fact seems
o be a vital force in serving as a
pvernor to prevent sudden out
'Ursts on the front pages. A fae- 1
imile of a conservative makeup of
front-page Oregonian is shown in <
he article. Also, a short history
f the University school of journal
sm is given in conjunction with an
stimate of its accomplishments and
eilefits to the state.

order to make it possiblo for stu
dents and faculty to attend both

“The Detour” is a dramatic cross
section of American rural life, and
it is quite a different type of play
from “Lilies of the Field,” a com
edy given by these players here this
fall. The play is a drama of rural
Long Island, depicting with vivid
ness and realism the austerity of
“backwoods” farm life, and at the
same time presenting the simple hu
mor of tho natural wit of primitive
minds. Tt is au honest play about
“The Detour” represents one of
the highest, attainments in Ameri

to Montrose J. Moses, author of
“The American Dramatist.”

office and The Co-Op and at the

“Weep Some More, My Lady,” by
Sigmund Spaeth, is a sequel to his

his new volume Mr. Spaeth divides
the songs of yore into several amus
ing divisions. For example, there
is the group which he labels “The
Eternal Story,” being love songs,
quite naturally. There is also “The
School of Self-Pity,” whicht con
tains such tearful selections as
“They Say I Am Nobody’s Darling,”
“Put My Little Shoes Away,” and
“Let Me Say My Little Prayers.”
Carl Sandburg's “The American
