Girl Finds Money All Gone From Bag
■Robbed! Not a red pent, nor a

That is the plight Miss Katherine
Bailey, secretary to Bean Faville of
the school of business administra
tion, found herself in one night two
years ago while she was staying at
the Yellowstone hotel in Yellow
stone National park.
Miss Bailey, who had been attend
ing the University of Chicago, was
taking a trip during her vacation.
She, in company with a friend,
stopped at the Yellowstone hotel.
Tn the evening they started out to
go visiting, but discovered when
they tried to pay the bus fare, that
they had no money.
Returning to the hotel, Miss
Bailey discovered that all her money
had been stolon from her bag. She
! had left Chicago on such short no
tice, that she hadn’t had time to
get traveler’s checks, and had car
ried a considerable sum in currency
with her.
Her companion was more fortu
nate, having hidden her money in
two different places. Half of it
was gone, the remainder was suffi
cient to take her back to Chicago.
Miss Bailey “wired dad,” and
came homo to Eugene. “Tt was the
first time that I had carried a large
sum in cash,” she said, "and it will
be the last time, too.”
Miss Bailey graduated from the
school of business administration,
at the University of Montana in
1925. During her senior year she
was secretary to Dean Thomas
Spaulding, of the school of forestry.

Igloo for Hop Tonight
A theme I lint smacks of tlio moats
a.ml jousts ami eliivalrv of a history
mellowed ago—executed with tlio
tricks of 20th (mutiny lighting and
silhouotto effects- has been used
bv the freshman class in making a
setting al the Igloo for the Frosli
Glee, second of a quartet of class
dances for the university, that will
be staged tonight at !l o’clock at
McArthur court.
There is the grandeur of modern
istic design in the execution of the
decorative scheme, medieval in tone,
that Boh Van Nice as chairman of
decorations has planned. And it is
peculiarly “ freshmanish,” too, be
cause the whole effect, lias the tang
of the babes’ own English “survey
lit” course.
With the exception of final work
to be done this morning, for which
the general chairman, Don Call, has
issued a summons to all frosli men,
the job was wound up late' last
night when a bunch of grimy, tired
but game “babes” ended a long
day's work.
“Vagabonds” to Play
Johnny Robinson's Varsity Vaga
bonds are furnishing music for the
affair. No hint as to the feature
lias been given by Donna Gill, chair
man, except that she insists it. is
going to be “peppy and good.”
More than three thousand yards
of cloth have been used in decorat
ing the huge halt, Call said yester
day afternoon when, ns he perched
on shy ward beams of the court, he
answe.red questions that the reporter
yelled up at a 90 degree angle. “We
want men out tomorrow morning—
that’s the main thing—otherwise
everything is coming great,” he
went on, from his perch in the
“celestial regions” of the Tgloo.
To Use Flood Lights
Lugging with finniehy caution a
1000-watt, globe that looked more
like an overgrown squash, Marshall
Brownell came round one of the
Igloo hall’s many corners —and
bumped abruptly into the reporter.
Thus caught he amiably took a few
minutes to answer questions about
the work of his lighting committee.
A total of 8750 watts will be utilized
in the 10 spot lights and six ?loo^
lights that will play an important
part in the decorations for tonight,
he explained. The lights were
loaned to the class by the Guild
hall theater. Brownell has had
previous experience in handling
lighting effects both in play pro
ductions at Washington high school
and at the lleilig theater in Port

from the same college, Grinnell,
Iowa, and have been acquainted
since early days,
Anatolia college, according to Mr.
White, is progressing rapidly in its
work. -Established in Marsovan,
Turkey, the missionary school was
forced to remove to 'Raloniea in
1921. ]t was reestablished there in
1924 and now has an endowment six
times the size of its material plant.
When Mr. White reached Raloniea,
the city had a population of 150,000.
The influx of refugees has increased
the number to approximately 40(1,000.

Next Term, Says Isbell
“ Le Misanthrope,” Moliero’s five

by the French club to be presented
spring term. Members of the. French
faculty will take tho Tending roles,
supported in the minor parts by the
student members of tho club. The
east will bo announced later, said
Miss Worden Isbell, president
Tho comedy is of particular in
terest because it shows the spirit of
I the seventeenth century in France,
the “grand sicele.” The affected
manners and olahorale costumes of
the period will be duplicated as ac
curately as possible. This will be
the first literary masterpiece to bo
presented in French on tho campus.,
“Both faculty and students are
very enthusiastic about tho play and
hope to start a custom of giving at
least one big production in French
each year,” said Dr. Kay I’. Bowen,
head of tho department. “With all
tho interest shown among both fac
ulty and students there is little rea
son to believe that Moliero’s comedy
will not be. successful.” .
At the last meeting of tho club
a, two-act comedy, “be Coup do
Vent,” was given to a large audi
ence. The drawing room of Hen
dricks hall was transformed into a
theater and the state set in tho door
of the dining room. Pierre Thomas,
instructor in the department, was
in charge of the directing and stag
ing. Mrs. Thomas, Frances Bacon,

Felix Legrand, member of tho fac

Oregon’s First National Fraternity
Lists Many Prominent Graduates
The first national fraternity to bo
installed at the University of Ore
gon—probably not one student in
fifty knows what it is or when it
was installed.
Phi Delta I’lii, national legal hon
orary, installed a chapter in the j
University of Oregon law school on
the first of May, 1891, nearly ten
years before any other national,
either social or honorary, came to j
the campus.
But what makes this chapter of
the fraternity really interesting is
the large number of men included
among its alumni who have become
nationally and locally prominent in
the legal and political fields.
When the good brothers of Phi
Delta Phi initiated young Fred
Steiwer quite a number of years ago,
they probably did not suspect that
In- would someday represent Oregon
in the United Stales Senate. Nor
did they know, when they made a
young law student, Frank Korell
a member, that lie would before

seats in the House of Representa
tives at Washington.

Valuable Volume Gift
To Potter Collection
Book Press Gives Special
Edition by Alva Romanes
A lyric story of love, “The Gold
en Vein's,” written by Alva Romanes
and illustrated by Howard Simon,
was placed in the Pauline Potter
Homer collection of the library,
yesterday, as the gift of the Book
Press, San Francisco.
Delicately illustrated with a
water-color touch, and bound on
Italian hand-made paper, the vol
ume is worthy to be compared with
the work of Nicolaus Jensen. The
type, Bernhard and Bernhard cur
sive, has the light lyric funeifulness
which pieturizes Romanes’ poems.
This is the first opus of the Book
Press, and but 150 copies were
printed, autographed by both author
and artist. Number seven was given
by Louis Freedman, of MacMillan
company, publishers.
