    English Sextette
To Give Concert

Program Includes Italian
Street Cries
A program tliat promises to lmld
material with appeal for both the
laymen and professional musician is
that of the English Singers, who
will present the third concert of
the A. S. U. O. series in the Mc
Arthur court next ^Thursday evening
at 8:ln.
The English Singers of London, a
sextette composed of Flora Mann,
Nellie Carson, Lilian Berger, Onth
bert Kelly, Norman Stone and Nor
man Notley, has made a special
study of ensemble singing and rex
eels in the interpretation of ttie
madrigals of all countries. Their
Eugene program, which contains
many of the best madrigals and mo
tets of Elizabethan England, fol
Praise Our Lord—William Byrd
Ave Verum—William Byrd.
Hosanna to the Son of David —
Thomas Weekles (1575-1623).

century; (arranged by E. W.
Naylor, 1807).

I Go Before, My Darling—Thomas
Morley (1558-1003).
My Phyllis Bids Me Pack Away
—Thomas Weelkcs (1575-1023).
Although much of the concert ma
terial is sixteenth century music,
one critic remarks the emotional j
appeal is so real that audiences do
not realize they are being transport-;
ed to the England of good Queen
Bess or tho Cavalier poets. More
over the entire program is sung
after the manner of old English
part singers who used to sit around
a table at house parties, and sing
the madrigals of Byrd and Wilbye.
So the New York Sun says of
their second recital in that city in
1920 ?
“The English Singers yesterday
looked somewhat like such an old
time family group. They seemed
to enjoy keenly what they, were do
ing. They sing gnvly those things
which are gay, and gravely those
which are grave.”
Holiday Only Name,
As Students Cram
In George’s Honor
Washington’s birthday has come
and gone, a holiday in name only.
One look in the library at any hour
of the day would have proved that.
Not a seat was vacant. The pro- '■
crastinator, who was doing his
term’s history reading, and the
bright boy who was tiuishing his ,
last term paper, sat side by side with

The collegiate floor walker, who
generally spends his time trotting
from one library to another, taking
down ponderous volumes in order to
! appear engaged in intellectual pur
suit, sat immobile, “cramming it in
and cramming it. in.”
Maybe the cold, drizzly day had
something to do with the fact that
the library was crowded. Anyway,
study hard, oh aspiring worker, the
lur.o of the balmy days of spring
will soon bring suspended effort and
library depopulation; then “What
will the harvest by?”

Education and Christianity Needed
To Save IndiaD. Devaputra Thinks
"In my eountisy, a person is lit
erate when he can read a le’tterand
be able to reply to it,” said D. De
vaputra of India, speaking before
the Cosmopolitan club last Titesdav
night at the “Y” hut.
D. Devaputra. sneaking of the 1
school system in India, said that
the college oyer there is different
fmm the university or college of j
America. The college in India is !
composed of men or a board who j
make the whole regulations of the j
college, which the students should
abide by strictly, he says.
“Education in India is mostly
acouired from private tutorship and
from the missionary workers,” stated
Mr. Devaputra.
The educational system in India
is composed of eight years element
ary, three years high school, . and
four years college. Public examin
ation is given every three years, and
the only pupils qualified to take it
are the ones who have finished their
elementary education. This examin
ation is not compulsory, but it is
significant because the more diplo
mas or degrees the student has the
bigger he looks in the eyes of the
public. Very few get through with
this public examination ns it is very
hard, Mr. Devaputra said.
In the classroom, the girls and
boys do not sit near each other. Mr.
Devaputra said that there is very
little or no self-expression in the
classroom regarding the lessons as

signed, and the quieter the student
is, the safer he is.
Of the 320,000,000 inhabitants of
India, Mr. Devaputra said that only
23,000,000 could read and write the
official language, and 3,000.000 could i
read and writs English. India has
220 different languages.
“There are two essential factors
that may be done to mr country in
order that she may be saved,” said
Mr. Devaputra, “and these are:
first, my people should be educated,
and second, my people should look
upon Jesus Christ.”
Mr. Devaputra said' that he is
looking to the future when all his
people will be educated.
D. S. Sadharia of India, junior in
journalism, speaking on the social
problem of India, said that the
people of India are divided into
many different classes. The Brah
mans are considered the first class,’
the military men the second; th(
merchants and the agriculturists tin.
third; and the “untouchable” the
lowest. There are about 60,000,000
of these “untouchable” people, said
Mr. Sadharia, who are cast out
from the social life of India. He
said they are not allowed to walk
or to linger in public places or
mingle themselves with anybody but
their own kind; and the speaker
said,that they are the most miser
able and most unhappy people on
Regarding the Indian woman’s
sanctifying and burning herself,
this occasionally takes place in In
dia at present, Mr. Sadharia said.
This custom, he reported, •originated ]
in the early part of the 13th cen
tury, when the Mohammedans from
eastern Asia invaded India. The
women did not want to give them
selves up to the Mohammedan con
queror, so they burned themselves,
and this custom has continued until
the present time.
