Fete Workers
Prepare For
Event Friday
Diving Board is Nearly
Completed; Arch for
Floats Begun
Space Allotted for
Use of Workers
Gamma "Hall Withdraws;
Alpha Enters Race
Construction on decorations and
staging for the annual Canoe Fete
to lie held on the mill race near the
Anchorage next Friday night was
hegnn last week-end and is now
well under wav, it was announced
yesterday by Kenton Ifamaker,
general chairman of the fete.
The work on a new 10 foot div
ing board in across the race in
front of the bleachers is practically
completed under the direction of
Hoi Richmond, chairman of grounds
and staging, Hamaker said. This
board will enable fancy divers at
the fete to attain more artistic ef
fects in their plunges than has been
the case with the four foot boards
which have been used in past years.
The construction of the great arch
through which the floats will come
has been begun under the direction
of Millard Schmeer, decorations
chairman, and Ronald Murray, his
assistant. The fine detail of the
decorations, the motif of which is
being kept secret, will be finished
Thursday or Friday.
Lighting Under Way
Work on the lighting arrange
ments for the fete is under way
under the direction of Harold El
kins and Ferry Douglas, his assist
ant. The work will be completed
Thursday night so that it can be
tested to be sure that it is in per
fect condition for the fete. The
lighting effects will inclube globes
beneath the surface of the water,
as in previous years.
Space for each pair of organiza
tions to use in building the floats
has been staked off along the race
above the Anchorage, and work may
begin there at any time. The work
ers are asked to refrain from cut
ting small shrubs or branches from
trees on the allotted space^. Ted
Sather, Dick Sehroeder, and Art Ro
lander have been appointed as a
committee to aid in launching the
Dismantle Floats
All floats except the Winners,
which will be used in filming a
scene from the campus movie, must
be dismantled and the canoes re
turned to the Anchorage by !>
o’clock Saturday morning. The
canoes will be needed for the water
carnival which is to be held there
at 11. Terence King, chairman of
the clean-up committee, has appoint
ed Clarence Field to be in charge of
the dismantling of the stage and div
ing board and Bill Kuykendall to
take charge of the dismantling of
the decorations. .
Fourteen floats, representing 28
living organizations will be entered
in the fete. Gamma Hall, which
was paired with Alpha Gamma Del
ta, has found it impractical to en
ter the competition, but Alpha Hall
-has entered instead and will be
paired with the women’s house.
Tickets for the Canoe Fete may
be obtained at either the Univer
sity Co-op or .Tack Benefiel’s of

by llill. The exact place of the

Dezendorf yesterday listed the

mittees named by the general chair
man :

‘‘While our picnic last year was
declared to be the best in the uni

may rest asured that our party this
year will be still better, because of
the efficient group of people that
have been selected to work on the
details of the affair.”
Water Dog Research
Is Main Experiment
A very interesting experiment is
being made by Mr. R. .T. Main, dem
onstrator in animal biology, over in
the research building. The idea is
to discover the reactions or reflexes
of water dogs without their inner
ears or in other words minus their
sense of equilibrium. If tickled on
a certain spot the creatures do one
thing, if tickled on another spot
they do another. All of which is of
significance to the biologist but to
the ordinary observer looks like or
dinary squirming. Then if the ears
are in one and out of another they
act differently when suspended by
the tail or when lying on their
backs. Mr. Main “catches his
own” for his experiments. They
look something like lizards only
their skin is not scaly. They’re far
from admirable looking things but
they are doing their part in con
tributing to the advancement of
biological facts.

through the lovely solo
parts, to the final cry
and prayer of tho
“Lord, Deliver My
Soul,’’ the singing was
superbly done, and the
chorus excellently bal
anced with the soloists.
The chorus was well
climaxed in its soloists.
Mr. llollin Pease, while
not carrying the heavy
part lie sang last year
in the “ Elijah,” sup
plied the deep sonorous
baritone; Mr. Arthur
Boar'dinan’s magnificent
tenor was excellently
complemented by tho
lyric soprano of Miss
.Tone Burns, and the
deep mezzo-soprano of
Miss Bernice Alstoek.
‘‘A h , Romembctr,’’
which was sung bv Miss
Alstoek and Miss Burns,
was especially haunting
in its beautiful,and sad
melody, and seemed par
ticularly fitted to these
voices. It was followed
by “Sadly Groaning,

ami by “From the Accursed,” ;i
hymn sung by Mr. Pease. Anil then,
together they sang “Oh, Lord Clod,”
which was almost a. prayer in its
solemn and simple entreaty.
Jane Borns sang the chant of
the ‘‘Lord, Deliver My Sonl’’ in a
wonderfully effective manner.
Mr. John Stark Evans, who has
spent many weeks in preparation
for the presentation last night de
serves much credit for his work, as
also does the chorus. It was not
an easy thing to do, especially since
tile members of the chorus had to
practice alone until almost the last
night, when they went over the more
difficult parts with the four soloists.
