families. Last, year the proceeds
were contributed to tlte Campus

Sale of Envelopes Nets
$14-10 to League Fund
A total of $14.10 was netted bv
the Women’s league through the
sale of grade envelopes last term,
it was reported at the last council
meeting. This was a much smaller
amount than is usually made, due to'
the new system which was put into
use fall term.
Students wishing lo receive re
ports of their grades formerly had
to leave a stamped, self-addressed
envelope at the registrar’s office,
and the league undertook the sale of
envelopes for this purpose. The
grades were last term sent to the
parents (inring the holidays, and
only ‘those students who did not
spent the holidays at home or who
wished extra copies purchased en
The league is attempting to raise
sufficient money to furnish one
room in the new infirmary, and this
money will be placed in that fund,

the position Katherine Knecland.
East and West Have No Common
Ground, Declares Chinese Student
Mien Pti Cliai Describes
Changing State of China
Mien Pu Thai, senior in medicine,
is Chinese; Chinese to the very tips
of his sensitive yellow fingers. Mr.
Cliai presents the appearance of a
cultured, educated Chinaman of the
intellectual class.
‘•I came here,” he said, “because
T had heard people say, that Amer
ica is the center of education.
“There are many things that I
admire and appreciate in this coun
try, but I do not enjoy it. I haven’t
learned about American life. And
why should 1 ? I come here to read
books. 1 am not debarred from the
classes. That is enough.”
Mr. Cliai says that there is abso
lutely nothing in common between
the Oriental and the Occidental.
“You write this way,” and lie drew
one sensitive- finger in a straight
horizontal line. “We write that
way,” and he drew another finger
vertically. “There is nothing about
us that is alike. ^
“Some of the Chinese students
complain that you are cold to them.
What else? Why not?
“You have heard so much about
Chinese calling foreigners ‘Foreign
Devils.’ I <lid that myself once
when I was young. We said that
the English didn’t have any knee
caps because they walk with a cane.
We thought that they could see at
night because their eyes are green
or blue like a cat's.”
Mr. Thai spoke of the China, of
today. “If changes so fast,” ho re
marked, “that it is just like one of
the reels in a picture film. You
have the old and the new side by
“I once took a picture of myself
sitting with my mother. My father
saw that picture. He tore it into
pieces, lie said, ‘You should not
sit beside your mother. You should
stand. ’
“You see women on the streets
with their feet bound, and women
with short skirts—some of them too
“China is politically conservative,
but socially radical. Men and wom

to the magistrate.”
Lei Cliai spoke of the political
condition of China. His eye's were

sensitive fingers were quivering.

The Enemy’
Finds Way to
Campus Stage
Gav MaeLaren Plays Nine
Parts in Drama Tonight
In Woman’s Riiililing
Hatred One and Only
Enemy in Popular Play
None Should Miss Moral,
Says Nicholas Duller
“If is a powerful piny. T trust
that millions ot‘ men and women
throughout tlm world may son ‘ Tho
Enemy’ and that it may ho the
prophet of a new day,” Nicholas
Murray Butler, president of Colum
bia university, says eoneerning the
play Miss Gay MaeLaren, dramatie
reeitalist, will give tonight, at 8
o’clock, at the Woman's building.
It is a play of laughter and tears,
and smashing dramatic scenes.
Cbanning Pollack's play in four
acts, takes place in Vienna during
Ihe crisis of tho Great War and
after. The nine characters, all
played by Miss MaeLaren, are a
little group of “the enemy.” Miss
MaeLaren will imitate the cast
playing at the Times Square theater,
in New York.
Recitalist. Is Versatile
As each character she portrays
enacts his part in the play according
to his nature, it. is seen that the
fabric of their being little differs
from ours except in tbe language
and the geographical placement of
their lives. And that, after all, there
is only one enemy, and that is
Tt is for this reason that a critic
of the New Haven Register says,
“Unless the world is so blind that
it simply will not see, dimming
Pollack is going to do more toward
the realization of universal peace
than Woodrow Wilson’s fourteen
points, the League of Nations, the
World Court 'and a dozen assorted
Geneva conferences. For in his
play ‘The Enemy’ ho preaches a
sermon more vital, more moving,
more potent than anything the thea
ter has ever known.”
Interprets Many Roles
The characters consist of Pauli
Arndt, of whom Miss MaeLaren
will imitate the interpretation of
Miss Fay Bainter of the Times
Square theater; Pauli’s father, n
professor of tho university, Hr.
Arndt; August Behrendt, a German
grain dealer; Carl Behrendt, his son,
a playwright; Bruce Gordon, an
English student at the university;
Fritz Winekelman, a journalist;
Mitzi, their little boy; Baruska, a
servant in the Arndt home; .Tail,
Behrendt’s servant.
The action of tho play takes place
in the Arndt flat in Vienna. The
first act is in June, 1914; 1he second
in August, of the same year; the
third in March, 1917, and the fourth
still two years later.

nual event of the Christmas holidays
and is attended by high school and
college students.

One of liie reasons nelnhart’s
cage team lias been so successful for
the past three years is the scrappy
floor playing and accurate shooting
of Scott Milligan, who has played
both forward and guard positions.
Milligan is expected to be very
much in evidence when Oregon plays

Tultle Teaches
Parents How To
Train Children
Work Tims Far Successful
Affirms Clinic Professor
After First Two Meetings
In what educational authorities
on the campus term a pioneer ef
fort in its field, a weekly clinic lias
been instituted this month at, Port
land by Harold S. Tuttle, assistant
professor of education, for mothers
who want to tako up concrete, prac
tical child training problems.
The clinic offers no credit for
work but is given solely ns an op
portunity for mothers to better their
understanding of how to further the
moral training of their children.
After the plan for the conference
had been approved during the fall
term by all Portland Parent, Teach
ers’ associations and by the Port
land P. T. A. council, Mr. Tuttle
began actual preparations for its in
stitution, and in December, through
the university extension division in
Portland, the opening of the clinic
was officially announced.
Two weekly Tuesday afternoon
mootings, one January 8 and one yes
terday, have already been held at
the Central library with an attend
ance termed by Mr. Tuttle “extreme
ly encouraging, both in size and in
terest, in the group.”
The actual opening of the clinic
means to Mr. Tuttle the realization
of a dream he has had for about
three years. The idea had as its'
stimulus repeated requests for guid
ance from parents, lie explained.
“Courses in moral training for chil
dren are frequently offered for
teachers but ns far as I know, no
such opportunity has even been of
fered directly to parents through a
university, said Mr. Tuttle.
He is omfduriic in explaining that
the eourse is not one dealing with
abstract psychology but with the
actual concrete problems in manage
ment of temper, sulkiness and dis
obedience that baffle the mother.
“T want to encourage the co-opera
tive idea of comradeship in en
joyments, and the value of quiet
conferences between mother and
child,” went on'Mr. Tuttle.
Three means of tackling the prob
lems are being used in Mr. Tuttle’s
clinic, he explained. He will give
informal lectures, with a general
discussion of basic, principles; answer
questions from the group, and con
duct private conferences with moth
ers. Practical reading will be recom
mended from time to time by Mr.
Tuttle in the course.
Marian Barnes Has
Secretarial Position
Marian Barnes, ’19, is now at the
state legislature in Salem acting as
secretary to Senator John B. Bell
of Eugene. Miss Barnes was on the
campus last week visiting friends.
She was active in campus affairs

Of Learned Soeieties
Professor H.. A. Townsend, of the
philosophy department, is leaving
for Washington, 1>. ('., to attend the
meeting of the Council of Learned
Societies, to be held January 25 and

a central organization of about 14
of the humanistic societies of schol
ars, such as the American Histori
leal association, the Modern Lnn
I guage association, the American
Philosophical association, and others.
These societies have their individual
organization, and then share in the
meetings of the council.
“At present,” he continued, “the
council has several undertakings of
general interest, such as the collec
tion and publication of records of
'all extant vases of classical anti
quity; the publication of medevial
Latin dictionaries, and the publica
tion of an American dictionary of
biographies. A special fellow of the
council is at work investigating the

st'ason schedule, and the conference season will open next Satur
day against Washington at Seattle.
Oregon looked better last night than it did against either
Gonzaga or Willamette last week. The improvement, however,
is not indicative of Oregon’s conference power. The Cheek quint,
undoubtedly was the weakest team to face Oregon this season

To Be Sent Here

Will Be Announced at
McArthur on Saturday
A play-by-play account. of tlie Ore
gon - Washington basketball game
will tie amionneeil at McArthur point
next Saturday night at 7:45 o’clock.
Tlie description will be sent, over
specially leased wires from Seattle.
The game will be sent from Seattle
by Joe Pigney, secretary of the Pro
fessional Sport Writers association, I
which is sponsoring the affair, and
megaphoned here by Spike Leslie,
who broadcasts the Kugeno basket
ball games for KORK, local station.
A general admission of twenty-five
cents will be charged.
The Oregon Washington game at
Seattle will have a direct bearing
on the championship of the northern
division of the Pacific coast confer
ence. Washington \\on the title last
year and Oregon finished second de
feating the Huskies in the final game I
of the season.
Coaches in the northwest think
Oregon is the team to defeat before
the championship can be won. Ilea
Edfnunsen, Husky coach, declares
that if the opening game with Ore
gon can be won their will be little
to keep the Huskies from their sec
ond championship in succession. Ore
gon has developed rapidly in the last
week, and Kdmunsen is certain that
the game Saturday will be the hard
est on the Washington schedule.
New Library Lights
Notv All Installed
Lighting arrangement changes in
the main library were completed
Saturday. The new lights and re
flectors give a more even light and
are placed directly over the study
tables. 'I’h.1 reflectors diffuse the |
light, casting if with full strength, \
yet indirectly downward, says M.
H. Douglass, university librarian.
The new system was partly in
stalled last term, but a shortage of
fixtures delayed the work.
aml consequently the Webfoots ap
peared st ronger by eompn risen.
The Checkerboards got oft' to mi
on11 v lend when Samson converted
n 11 ee throw, but troni then on the
\\ (difoots had no trouble. Scott
Milligan scored Oregon’s first bas
io't. I he Webfoots rail ii|i eight
lH,ints before the Checks were able
to drop in their first field goal.
Oregon in Front at Half
The first, half ended with Oregon
so far in front that there was no
question of the outcome. This took
much of the zest out of the battle,
and practically the only thing of in
orest was the number of points the
Wehfoots could roll up before the
end of the game.
The lopsided, 28 to 12, lead at
half-time was extended to 42 to 12
in the second half before the Checks
worked through the Oregon defense.
The Webfoots dropped in point after
point, without any apparent effort,
while the Portland quint dashed
around dazedly attempting to find
the hoop. The only thing the Checks
found easily was the backboard, and
e'en then many of the shots glanced
off to the side or sailed over the
top completely.
Checks’ Shots Fail
After the Checks broke the spell
in the second half they increased
their total number of points to 22
while Oregon could score only three.
I here came another long period of
haphazard shooting on the part; of;
the Checks, and the Webfoots made
their final basket, (12 points, before
the Portlanders reached the sum
total of 2-1.
Hov Hughes was one of the out
standing players on the Oregon
team last night. This is Hughes’
first year of varsity competition
and from his recent performances
he looks like a, mainstay for the next
two years. Hughes’ floor work was
as near perfection as any man oil
the tefim, and he dropped in several
spectacular shots. His shooting is
conspicuous because it is entirely
different from the Reinhart, style.
Hughes’ long under hand “flip”
shots appear easy to block, but last
night he scored five field goals and
one free shot.
McCormick Plays Well
Don McCormick is another Web
foot who is developing into a fin
ished player. McCormick missed
several cripples last night but; his
excellent floor work and passing
easily offset the scoring weakness.

Modern Girl Flayed as Drinking,
Smoking, Dancing Child oj Jazz
Eastern College Student
Paints Flappers Illaek
This is n tale of a “modern woman
And readers will note that it. eon
tains a little of Freud, a little of
the cynic in Moliere’s Misanthrope,
and a little of that, chilli sauce
if you can reach it.
A short time ago the Emerald
published an interview on ‘‘Arc We
Happier Than Our Grandmothers?”
It was reprinted in eastern college
papers. One man who read it dis
agreed with what it said. He flay
ed the modern girl as a “frivilous
creature,” giddy-headed, on the road
to reducing the “human race to the
level of cats and dogs in the alley.”
In a letter received yesterday by
a certain Miss X. on the Oregon
campus, this student at the Univer
sity of Minnesota stated his views
about women volubly and verbally.
“Undoubtedly,” he declared,
“modern girls qre happier than their
grandmothers were. . .why shouldn’t
they lie amid all these wonderful
modern inventions, brought forth by
industrious, hard-working men—not
flappers ... as the girls are today.
“The modern fiirl thinks more of
dancing . . . lipstick and rouge . . .
shortening her dresses . . . smoking
cigarettes . . . drinking hootch, etc.,
ail nauseam. This is the modern
girl to a very large extent through
out the land.”
Today’s girl is not much on busi
ness, he believes. “They may talk
business in the classrooms, but out
in tin1 street, the restaurant, the
streetcar, the home — any where
where a few girls gather you will
hear . . . dances . . . parties . . . auto
rides . . . dress (undress is more fit
ting) . . . drinks . . . smokes . . .
fine fellows.
“Many good-minded people refuse
to see or hear or believe that there
is much evil in the moral life of
our present, civilization until it is
brought right under their noses.”
The Minnesotan saw additional
demoralization of the present-day
society in the list' of divorces and
the unstability of the family.
“If the doctrines of Dorothy Dix,
Elinor Glyn, Judge Lindsey and
others are going to continue,” he
predicted, “we may find the human
race reduced to the level of cats
and dogs in the alley. It is not
given to everybody to see . . . ”
and so on far into the night.
