At present it looks like the var

stellar chucking veteran of the slab
"Staff. Baker is confined in the in
firmary with a bad leg, and accord

hurling assignment for either gaa#e.
Baker missed all of last week’s prac
tice sessions because of his injury.
But while enjoying “the life of
an invalid in the University hospi
tal Bill has had little cause to feel
lonely. Among the other personages
whiling away the time there, is Dave
Mason, varsity infielder. Dave was
pledged by the infirmary family last
Wednesday and lias since been en
tertaining Bill with his banjo and
stories of his recent experiences in
the orient. Dave’s main excuse for
his extended visit with Bill has been
the flu. Today or soon, according
to reports, he will get his honorable
discharge and may bo able to par

During the week the varsity may
get another practice game or two

Glee Club Head
Plans Trip East
Eugene Carr To Study
With Noted Tenor
Eugene Carr, Director of the Uni
versity of Oregon Girls’ Glee Club
and teacher of voice at the Univer
sity school of ||iusie is going to New
York on a leave of absence from
the University to stvjdjr with Ar
thur Kraft, the well known .concert
and oratorio tenor of the East.
Mr. Carr first met Arthur Kraft
when in school at Westminster Col
lege at New Wilmington, Pennsyl
vania in 1925. Mr. Kraft was there
to give a. recital. That summer fol
lowing his graduation from West
minster Mr. Carr studied with Mr.
Kraft as he has each summer since,
and now he has the opportunity of
going to New York and living with
Mr. Kraft while studying under him,
with the possibility of working in as
his assistant during the winter.
Mr. Carr anticipates a great fu
ture in music for the Northwest and
is preparing lymself to be one of
help in its development. He could
think of no greater opportunity op
ening itself to him at this time than
study under Arthur Kraft. Mr.
Kraft was a graduate of the Uni
versity of Chicago and of the Kent
Law School. He practiced law for
two years before he entered the
field of music, as a professor, and
that was somewhat accidental, for
he found so little remuneration in
the practice of law that he had to go
cut and sing in order to got money
to buy food. He was so continually
leaving his law to sing that he fi
nally decided to adopt singing for
his profession, and he has never re
pented his law experiences. He says
he is a better singer for having been
a lawyer.
A^r. Carr is also studying with
Mr. Kraft at the latter’s slimmer
horiie at Watervale, Michigan, on
the Great Lakes during the summer
vacation. Mr. Carr is not, however,
deserting, but only preparing himself
for better service at the University.
Sophomores Win April Frolic Cup
With Colorful Oysterman’s Ballad
“There was a gay young oyster
Who jumped into the tide,
And soaked in seaweed went to woo
The girl on the opposite side.’’
That was the verse that character
ized the “Ballad of the Oysterman,’’
the sophomore cup-winning stunt of
Saturday night’s April Frolic.
“Katinka,’.’ the'freshman stunt, re
ceived honorable mention. The $5.00
costume prize was awarded to an
Alaskan dog team and sled com
posed of Dorothy and Ruth Dun
bar, Iris Saunders, Polly Povey and
Florehee La Follette, with Mildred
Johnson as the driver. Raggedy
Ann, portrayed tty Jean Tompkins,
received honorable mention.
The “Ballad of the Oysterman”
was introduced with a prologue
given by Beatrice Milligan. A song
by Anna Katherine Garrett was fol
lowed by a pantomime silhouetted
against the curtain telling the story
of the oysterman and his sweet
heart. The final scene abandoned
the pantomime and showed a mer;
maid ehorus, which was composed
of Colleen Creath, Martha Stevens,
Evelyn Kjosness, Helen Bell, Louise
Clendening, Loleta Jaeger, Luc-ile
Wirth, Florence Grimes, Mary Wil
son, Lou Anne Chase, and Katherine
Helen Peters was general chair
man for the sophomore stunt, and
Katherine Rochester headed the
freshman act, which was carried out
ir a Russian setting.
The senior stunt, “A Trip to
Mars,” struck a futuristic note with
grotesque setting and costume, and
was headed by Edith Bain. “So
This is College,” the junior stunt,
with Charlotte Carll as general
chairman, portrayed a scene on the
bank of the mill race and featured
a song hit composed by Jo Ralston.
Frances Plimpton, general chair
man „of the April Frolic, has ex
pressed her appreciation for the sup
port given the affair by the women
of the campus, and commended the
work of Violet Mills, who took ac
tive charge of the affair as official
announcer and head of the cops,
and Elsie Goddard, stage manager,
Dean Virginia Judy Easterly, Mrs.
Arnold, Bennett Hall, Mrs. Clara
Fitch, Miss Victoria Avaki'an, and
Miss Florence Wilbur served as
judges of the stunts and costumes;
and Mrs. I. L. Patterson, Mrs. Prince
L. Campbell, Mrs. George T. Ger
linger, Miss Fanny McCamant, Miss
Kathryn Boulter, Miss Hazel Pruts
man, and Mrs. Burt^Brown Barker
were patronesses.

(By United Press)
■WASHINGTON, April 16.—Presi
dent Coolidge made a veiled attack
against governmental participation
in private business, such as is pro
posed in the McNary-Haugen farm
relief bill, in an address tonight be
fore the Daughters of the American
Revolution convention.
All mention of. the D. A. R. pub
lic speaker’s blacklist was avoided
at the convention today although
opponents of the list and of secre
tary of the navy Wilbur’s original
navy program were working quietly
to inject a resolution which might
participate an open fight in the so
Mr, Coolidge steered clear of all
discussion on the military. His talk
was devoted to better citizenship
and better government.
“We have built our institution
around the right of the individual,”
the president said.) “We believe ho
will be better off if he looks after
himself. We believe that the mu
nicipality, the state, and the nation
will each be better off if they look
after themselves.
“It is desirable to keep the gov
ernment unencumbered and clean,
with an eye single to public ser
vice. We shall leave the conduct of
our private business with the indi
vidual, where.it belongs and not un
dertake to unload it upon the gov

Italian Plane Tested
For North Pole Flight
(Bv United Press)
STOLP, Prussia, April 1G.—Bat

snowstorms, and threatened by liyht
ning, that cvaekel perilously close;
the' big Italian dirigible Italia—in
which Commander Umberto Nobilo ]
will attempt to fly over the North ,
Pole—swept down to a safe landing
at Seddin airdrome today.
Nobile was greeted by air offi
cials and a ttrowd of several thou
sand persons was at the field when
at 7:45 a. m. the Italia floated
gracefully over Stolp. It finally
landed at 8:35 a. m.
“The weather was bad almost from
the start,” Nobile said, explaining
the flight had satisfactorily proved
the Italia’s capacity.
“The weather turned worse Sun
day night wdien we were runnilig
into thunder storms for hours.
Nevertheless, the Italia weathered
the storms. Although one fin was
broken the craft maneuvered well,”
Nobile said.

Senior Leap
Week Begins
In Two Days
Co-ed Revenge Opening
Dance Will Be Held
Thursday Night
‘Cat-nslroplie,’ ‘Barroom
Bust,9 ‘Heyday Picnic,’
To Be Features
After long and deliberate council
on the part of the nine senior women,
who compose the Senior Leap Week
committee, a name was given the in
formal opening dance of Leap Week
to be held next Thursday night from
7:30 to 10:30 at the Campa Shoppe.
The opening no date when you came

sensus of campus co-eds, is exceed
ingly appropos. As Alice Douglas,
chairman of the “Revenge,” says,
“It will be a chance for the women
to get their revenge on their secret
sorrows who haven’t dated them.
The men will be able to find out
what girls they rate with.”
Gathering Dates

of the evening. Tho business of the
evening will consist of gathering
dates for the remaining affairs of

All men who want a chance to
prove that they rate, should be at

time, according to tho ultimatum
laid down by the committee, headed

Gate Crasher Sees Peppy Dances
At Rehearsal ofrDream Follies’
Now, Billy O'Bryant may not bo
any Max Reinhardt, but when it
comes to putting out good, clean,
honest - to - goodness entertainment,
Billy’s “Dream Follies” is going to
be hard to beat. Squeezed in among
Borne other gate crashers who, fol
lowing the tactics of One-Eyed Con
nolly, managed to elude the watch
ful eye of the junior class commit
tee of guardsmen at the Ifeilig the
ater Sunday, was an Emerald re
porter. And what did he see?
Oh, boy!
Does that show sizaltsJ
And those ponies?
The “Dream Follies” is just be
ginning to take shape-—and what a
shape. “Dream Follies” has all the
characteristics of the kind of a
show which makes the men in the
box office do eight hours of work
in four hours—good songs, good set
itngs, and a selection of female
pulchritude that is a knockout, a 14
second knockout.
Billy skipped through the script
in Sunday’s rehearsal, picking out
numbers hero and there for special
work, so that no idea of the unity
of the production nor of the clev
erness of the lines was given, but
if either comes up to the standard
of the unfinished portions which
flashed before the fortunate gate
crashers Sunday, then the skeptical
theater goer need not hesitate to
| plank the mamma on the lino whon
the ticket sale opens.
After a classical dunce which got
the rehearsal under way, Edith
Pearson and .Tack Reynolds stepped
a fast number, utilizing the high
spots of the varsity drag, the black
bottom and the charleston speeded
up. There was no slow motion stuff
in that dance; nor was there any in
the inevitable encore. “Hot” is
the only word which conveys a suit
! able idea of the number.
Billy called time out for the bene
fit of a photographer who invaded
the Ileilig for the purpose of per
petuating an idea of the follies by
transferring a bit of its color to
paper. The pony chorus posed be
hind leaves—not fig leaves, Mabel,
but big painted leaves, which add
to the motif of the opening scene.
Then the whole group, the ponies
and the beauties—though just where
tho difference exists between the
ponies and beauties is doubtful, for
all qualify under tho latter classifi
cation—posed together. Finally, the
men were “mugged.”
There’s one thing which can
make or break a musical comedy.
That’s the girls. If they look as
though they’re working fur a living
and their pay check’s too small, or
if they look as though they would
like to choke the • boss, the show
usually is pretty flat, no matter how
