Student Total ;
Rises To 4087
All Oregon’s Enrollment
Increased by 1,000
Since 1924
Full-time enrollment at the Uni
versity of Oregon, including the Eu
gene campus, medical school and ex
tension divisions in Portland, and
correspondence work, has reached the
total of 4,087, it is announced here.
This figure means an equivalent of
that many students taking 15 hours j
of work each term for the school!
year, and is not the total of indi
vidual students. In order to arrive;
at the figure, the credit hours of!
extension and correspondence stu-1
dents were added and the total
divided by 45. Summer school stu- ■
dents carrying full schedules were'
counted as one-half of one term, or
six summer session students counted
as one full-time student.
This shows a marked increase from
1924, when the total was ,'1,075. Much
of the increase is shown, in extension
and correspondence work, since the I
regular campus enrollment icreased
during this time from 2,443 in 1924
to 3,131 in 1928. Inereirse in total
enrollment is 36 per cent, and since
much of this increase is due to ex
tension and correspondence, a much
higher ratio of idividuals is being
reached by the University.
In the year 1924 campus enroll
ment was 2,443, summer and post
session at Eugene equalled 64 full
time students, Portland summer ses- j
sion equalled 77, Portland extension!
equalled 102, and correspondence!
study equalled 172. Medical school j
was approximately 225. In 1928 the i
campus enrollment had increased to I
3,131, summer and post-session at J
Eugene equalled 110, summer session ;
at Portland equalled 129, extension j
classes equalled 313, and correspon-!
deuce, 181. Medical school enroll-!
ment, which is limited, remained at j
Standards at the University have i
been consistently raised during this
period also, it is pointed out, and
thus the increase is attributed to
student^ wh$,q,re taking th«>,business,
of getting an education seriously,
and to those who are unable to at
tend on the campus, but who are
continuing their studies by extension
work and by correspondence study.

No serious injuries have resulted j

Madame Schumann-Heink Seeks
Successor In Some American Girl
Some of the younger generation,
and to put it more pointedly, some
University students who sigh for a
Utopia of perpetual vacation, or who
look forward to middle life and old
age as a haven of surcease from
labor, have little in common with
Madame Schumann-Heink, the fam
ous contralto, whose farewell pro
gram will be giveu in Eugene this
At sixty-six, and after a career of
half a century, Madame Schumann
Heink has no desire for the prover
bial slippered ease; but remarked to
a friend who commented on ITer abil
ity to still sing opera roles:
“Wily I am not old. I am as happy
as a child to think I can still do the
parts of ‘Erda’ and ‘Frickn’ in
Wagner's great operns, but I don’t
think it is anything phenomenal. I
hope to do it ten or twenty years
from now. One cannot afford to
get old today. You would miss too
much that is wonderful. I expect to
see the day when aeroplanes are as
popular as automobiles.”
So, with the termination of
twenty-eight years of concert sing
ing in America, Madame Schumann
Heink plans to teach young Ameri
can girls the principles and technique
that have made her famous and to
foster the production of amateur
operas in the smaller cities of the
United States. Through the influ
ence of community choral and opera
organizations she believes that moral
conditions as well as the popular
American taste for music will be im
“Let them all come together,” she
declares in a formal statement of
her plans, “and sing—not jazz, but
the great musical compositions, and
we will sec a proportionate decrease
in the lawlessness, anarchy, hip
flasks and degrading tendencies that
arc now noticeable.”
Madame Schumann-Heink is now
searching for an American girl to
whom she may pass tlio finer points
cf her art. Of the qualifications
the girl must have she says:
“She must be the contralto, an
j unspoiled American girl to whom I
shall teach all the secrets of my art.
She must be a worker. She must
be intelligent. She must have great
art. When I find such an American
girl I shall teach her as I would my
own daughter; anil I will love her'
too as my own.”
Madame Schumnnn-Heink intends
to instruct the girl who has these i
requisites in the subtleties of telling
the poet’s message with faithfulness
end conviction. The Eugene program
of Schumann-Heink, to be given on '
May 18, at the McArthur Court, will
include numbers for wTtich the singer
has won fame through this interpre
tative quality. Students who wish
to attend may present their' student
body tickets at the Co-op now and
obtain regular admission tickets.
Miss Hardeman, the Kentucky
violinist, who for five years played
solos with Sousa ’s band, will be the
assistant artist on the concert.
