    Vocation Field
Offers Subject
For Research
Women’s League Holds
Questionnaire Study
Among Grads
Questions Aim at Changes
In Curricula
A study in vocational research is
being conducted at present by Wo
men’s League among rnn women
graduates of the class of 1924. One
hundred and forty-seven question
naires have been sent out under the
direction of Katherine Kweeland,
chairman of the committee, and the
proportion of answers being return
ed is reaching a high mark.
The study includes information
as to the various professions taken
up by these graduates and the bear
ing that their university education
and training had on successful pre
paration for each. The research is
a part of this year’s plan of the
League to he of definite aid to wo
men of the University in the field
of vocational guidance. Dr. Anita
Muhl, psychiatrist and co-worker
with the California State Board of
Education, was brought to the cam
pus by the League February 1 to
6 to speak before the weekly as
sembly, Women’s League mass meet
ing and at various more informal
discussions as an adjunct of this
same, policy.
The questionnaire deals in part
with the definite cultural and pro
fessional value of the University ed
ucation in the present occupation
cf its graduates, and its value as a
preparatory for such life problems
as earning a living, marriage, par
enthood and citizenship in a social
The final question on the sheet
sent out aims at curricula changes
and additions that graduates fool
would improve the system now in
use at tho University. To quote one
of the replies:
“A teacher majoring in her fa
vorite subject would naturally sag'
gest more appropriations so that
“big” men, and a number of big
men could lecture at the state uni
versity. More courses given , by
nationally known professors would
be splendid for tho provincial Ore
gon school teacher. Oregon 1ms a
splendid faculty, but we need more
Sheldons, more H o w c s, more
Ernsts, more Straubs. The Oxford
plan of glorifying the professor
would mean for the student closer
contact with superior intellect.”
Further returns are still being an
ticipated by the League, and com
pilation of the findings of the re
search has not yet been made, 'but
will be undertaken soon.

GENEVA, Ecb. 123.—A sensation
was created here tonight by reports
from the Hungarian government to
the League of Nations declaring that
five carloads of machine guns would
be auctioned Friday, despite, the
League’s request for postponement
of the sale.
Observers interpreted the action
of Premier Bethlen of Hungary as
openly flaunting the authority of
the League.
The request of the little entente
to investigate the now famous St.
Gotthard incident — seizure of the
guns — creates for the League coun
cil, which meets March 5, its most
important problem, with anything
likely to happen.
Senate Wins Fight
Against Oil Chief;
Orders Him To Talk
(By United Pi-obb)
WASHINGTON, Feb. 211. — The
government had a successful day in
dealing with the various ramifica
tions of the Teapot Dome affair.
The senate won its court fight
over its contempt action against
Robert. W. Stewart, head of the
Standard Oil of Indiana. The senate
Teapot Dome investigating commit
tee obtained testimony revealing
that Harry M. iilaekmer, one of the
ringleaders in the Continental Trad
ing company deal, got $7(13,000 out
of I1h> profits and fled the country
because he feared civil action by
oil companies to recover the money.
The Stewart ease was decided in
favor of the government when ,lus
ticc Jennings Hailey of the District
of Columbia supremo court dismissed
Stewart’s habeas corpus writ, and
declared he had not the right to re
fuse to answer the Senate Teapot
Dome committee’s question ns to
whether he knew anybody who got
bonds out of the Continental Trading
company deal. He took an appeal
and it. may be a year before there
is a final decision.
Siefert’s Recital
To Be Presented
Next Wednesday
Modern American and
British Corporations
The fifth of a series of recitals
given by the school of music this
term will be presented by John B.
Siefert, tenor, next Wednesday eve
ning at 8:1:5, in the auditorium of
the Music building.
The songs have been arranged in
four groups, the first of which em
bodies songs and arias from 1690 to
1800. It is composed of “My Lovely
Celia” by jMunro, Haydn’s “She
Never Told Me Her Love,” and two
contrasting numbers from Handel’s
early opera, “Atlanta,” “Cara
Helve” (Come My Beloved), a»d
“Co Call Irene.”
Following this group Mr. Siefert !
will sing “Ce Oelida Manilla,” which i
is one of the most popular numbers ;
of the opera, “La Bolieme” and one |
that is used extensively by concert '
tenors. This number owes its pop- 1
ularity to the tender solicitude it i
’file story of the first act of “La !
Bolieme” was portrayed by the j
students of Madame Rose McGrew
at a recent concert. Mimi, the cm- J
broidery girl, has come to the room
of Rudolph, a poet of the Latin .
quarter of Paris, to ask a light for !
her candle. As she is leaving the ;
room a cruel draught extinguishes I
both her light and Rudolph’s. In'
the darkness she discovers that she i
has lost the door key. Together I
they search for the key, which Ru
dolph finds and pockets. As the
search continues—a pretended one
on the poet’s part—their hands meet
and the song, “Ce Oelida Manina,”
or “Your Tiny Hands Are Frozen,”
i ne .succeeding group contains
four well-known German Heelers.
Two of these, “In Waldeseinsnm
keit” (“In the Quiet of the
Woods”) and Standelien (Serenade)
by Brahms, portray contrasting
moods. . The .other numbers, “Neu
gierie” {“The' Qu'OStidlibr”), ami
“Wanderer’s Nachtlied” are con
sidered to be two of the loveliest of
Schubert’s songs.
The concluding group of the pro
gram is representative of the work
of modern American and British
composers. Bridge’s “ Mantle of
Blile” typifies the hush that has
fallen over a home after a bereave
ment. Curran’s “Autumn” is pre
dominately sad in its visualization
of the falling leaf and the passing
of summer. “My Lute” bv Liddle,
of lilting quality, Morgan’s “Clor
inda,” and “A Baby’s Hair Is
Built of Sun,” a composition of Wil
liam Wentzell, one of Mr. Siefert’s
musical friends, are also included
in the group.
Mr. Siefert will be accompanied
by Louis I’. Artau of the music fac

contract's and this money was to be
paid back from whatever source I
was able to secure it, and paid
back from their guarantees.
“Personally I think it nothing but
downright maliciousness to charge
these boys with having been extra
vagant. In the first place it took
nothing less than a high order of
intestinal fortitude to start on a
world tour with as little money as
they had. They have not been ex
travagant. They have gone third
class and slept in many eases on the
floor with natives of Oriental coun
tries on Japanese steamers. They
have cutthkdr'-dhtly-'food allowance
in many eases just to be able to
take advantage of the things they
should have had money enough for in
the first place. I know the personal
expense accounts of these men more
closely than anyone and I know that
one of the three men left here with
nothing but his steamer fare and
*N0 in cash. And after the splen
did record that these men have made
for thojnselves and for the Univer
sity of Oregon, it is certainly a re
grettable circumstance that anybody
would charge these boys of extrava
gance in their personal accounts.
“Any money advanced by the stu
dent association to these boys would
not be a gift in this case, but pure
ly a loan to be paid back from their
American guarantees. 1 do not wish
to quarrel with anybody on the ques
tion of their finances, but I flatly
deny that these boys have been ex
travagant or tliat their present pre
dicament is in any way an attempt
to gouge the student association for
further funds. I do not care, now,
whether the student association
comes to their aid or not, for they
will get it anyway from some source;
but I do resent any insinuation as
| to their integrity or judgment in
the matter or manner of carrying out
their trip. Any attack on these boys
is unjustified because those making
the attack are positively in no posi
tion to know the facts.”
