Recent Additions
Now Obtainable
At Main Library
New Books on Psychology
And Art Contain Many
Interesting Plates
Any reading taste that one may
have can-be stimulated by several
recent additions to the new books
in the main library. There is most
anything there from novels to a
book on how to write a play.
“Oriental Art’’ is one of the fas
cinating new volumes. It contains
100 color plates in color, illustrating
ceramics, fabrics, and carpets. The
compilers of the book, who are con
nected with the French National
Museum, are R. Koeehlin, president
of the board of the museum, and O.
Migea, honorable director.
“Art in England” by W. T.
Whitelv is another new art book.
“The Making of Literature” by R.
A. Scott-James deals with some
principles of criticism examined in
the light of ancient and modern the
ory and is “a genuinely critical dis
cussion of the great works of world
literature. ”
Then there are two new books in
the field of psychology: “Contem
porary Economic Thought,*’ by Paul
T. Homan'and “Hows and Whvs of
Human Behavior,” by George A.
. Dorsey, Ph. I). Contemporary Eco
nomic Thought” is a series of per
sonal studies of important econo
mists who represent widely diver
gent theories of economic thought.
“Theodore Hook and His Novels”
by Brightfield is an interesting
biography of this writer. At the
back of this volume is a bibliogra
phy of Theodore Hook’s writings
anl synopses of all his novels.
“On the Bottom” bv Commander
Edward Ellsberg and “How to
Write a Play,” by St. John Ervine,
complete the list.

Oregon Trackmen
Will Leave Today
To Meet Huskies
Competition to be First
of Year; Slated to
Be Close
Oregon Said to Stand Cood
Chance in Field Events
Today the Oregon track men will
leave for Seattle, where they will
•ompete with the formidable Husk
ies in the first
regular track
meet of the year, j
Oregon is very 1
strong in the field |
events, and stands M
!i fair chance for W
li few firsts in the S
running events.
The Webfoots will'
be weak, however,
in the ability to i?
r a p t u re seeoirtl ^
and third posi- f;
Four of the B • Robinson
Huskies, particularly Kizer, are
able to run the mile under 4 min
utes and 30 seconds. This practi
cally concedes four of five places
to them.
Huskies Fast on Half Mile
In the half-mile, Washington is
also well fixed. Their two-mile re
lay team averaged 1:58 last Satur
day. So far this year the only Ore
gon man to show such class in the
middle distance is Ralph Hill.
The points will be pretty rvell dii
vided, though, in most of the other
events. Ed Siegmund and Harold
Kelley, tile Oregon hurdlers will be
up against Brodey and Steve Ander
son. Siegmund beat Brodey to place
second in the high hurdles against
•Anderson last Saturday, and Kelley,
who has been showing up as well as
Siegmund in practice, fell over a
hurdle in that race and did not
place. >
Opposition Tough for Lowry
Tyrell Lowry, Oregon’s best
sprinter, is in for some tough work
in the 220-vard or the 100-yard dash
es. The Husky flyers, Shelley and
Pendleton, are both equal to 10 sec
onds in the 100 and around 22 sec
onds in the 220.
The javelin, the pole vault, and
the discuss are Oregon’s strong
holds on the field. Homer Dickson
sends the spear about 175 feet, and
few track teams have many wen
capable of more than that.
Ed Moeller won the discuss from
Jessup of Washington last Satur
day with a throw of 150 feet 5
inches. Jessup made 147 feet.
Robinson Enters First Competition
The Washington pole vaultcrs go
12 feet or better, as <fo Don Mault
by and Bobby Robinson, Oregon’s
entrants. It will be Robinson’s first
varsity competition, having been
kept out last week because of a
sprained shoulder. He was ineligi
ble last year. Maultbv tied for
third place in the relay meet against
Washington’s best jump.
Orville Bredthauer, who will
broad jump for Oregon will have
to hop against the same man,
Humes, to whom he lost last year.
Bob Everts is practically sure of
>-arning a few points for Oregon in
the high jump, but he’ll have to
do over six feet, in all probability,

“ Yes, it will be the Greenwich

who is in charge of the decorations
for the prom, said last night.
“It.'s the impoverished dream of
a. striving artist,Clarence Lidbcrg,
who is assisting her, interrupted.
Amusement Assured
“There will be amusement for
everybody from the .submerged
tenth to the upper 400,” Harriett
declared. “We are even guaran
teeing rubbish cans for the students
to park their gum in. There will
be a dago fruit stand to serve punch
from too.
“There will be sufficient light
to see by,” Bob Eclcman, who is in
charge of the lighting, declared.
“The futuristic motif will be car
ried out by light and dark lights.
It will come entirely from overhead
and will bring out the blue in th<|
bunting and decorations. A blue
column of indirect lighting will
shine directly on the orchestra and
furnish its light.”
A number of snappy features have
been ararnged by Dean Oreatli, who
is in charge. The most important
from the campus point of view will
be the presentation of the Geriinger
and Koyl cups which will be given
to the junior woman and man judg

quintet has promised to play some
“hot” numbers and Harold Hatton,

Ivan Houston,
Oregon Alum,
Dies In Crash
Pilot Loses Control of
Plane While Seeking
Landing in Fog
Courage of Flier
Praised by Many
Had Flown But One Month
In Air Mail Service
Before Fatal End
Our1 month nftor his boyhood nm
bition to ho a flier had come trim,
Ivan 1>. Houston, '_’7, of Eugene, an
Oregon graduate of H>25, and former
senior man on the executive coun
cil, clashed to instant, death Tues
day as he tv as winging through
dense fog from Denver to Cheyenne
on the last bfp of his daily air mail
If was ilusk when he fell and he
was just ten miles from the end of
his daily air journey when the end
of his own great journey came.
Houston was apparently looking
for a lighted emergency field and
dropped too low, going into a tail
spin without altitude enouglit to
recover control. llis body was
tin-own 120 feet from the plane
which was wrecked, though not
burned. J’ho young flier's plane
was still headed straight for its
destination and its mail was un
damaged, |iihd friends in Wyoming
said yesterday. Though young and
new to the service he was considered
among the most courageous of the
pilots (in the. Rocky Mountain divi
sion according to the aviators. One
fellow pilot, passing Houston in the
fog, had attempted to warn him to
land early in the afternoon but he
had “Ju'pt going.”
Had Army Training
It was in early March that Hous
ton completed a year of army avia
tion training at Kelly field, in
Califqrnia. Following graduation
he had worked here first as a car
salesman and later as manager of
the Connecticut Life Insurance com
pany. His wife, Mary Hardy Hous
ton, who was in San Diego, Cali
fornia, when she received news of
the tragedy, and a brother John, are
his only survivors. He was born in
Medford, living always in Oregon
and attending high school here.
Just a month ago lie was in the
city, greeting friends, and had been
acclaimed Eugene’s first air mail
pilot, and mourning in this city
was wide felt yesterday.
Was University Man
He was a member of Phi Gamma
Delta and a track lettcrnmn during
collage. Mrs. Houston, daughter
of Dr. and Mrs. E. L. Hardy, of
Sand Diego, and the niece, of Char
les Hardy, of Eugene, is a member
of Kappa Alpha Theta here and was
a classmate of her husband.
The writer ;of this story inter
viewed Ivan D. Houston for a city
paper the day before he left Eu
gene for the last time. At that
time he told of the compelling ap
peal aviation had held for him all
his life.
He spoke of the future of avia
tion as a practical tiling, looked
at it not as a foolhardy adventure
but a great commercial service and
one that required level-headed in
telligent men. He advocated long
periods of training and careful,
thorough preparation.
Was Feartess
it was not hard,- then, to feel the!
courage that the pilot’s friends J
spoke' of yesterday. There was a >
look in liis eyes and a set to his
strong chin that spoke it. Asked
by the reporter then about the dan
gers of flying he had said with a
smile, ‘‘That’s all in the game,” and
then gone on gravely to say that
fog ivas aviation’s only danger.
The body wilj be taken to Kan
Diogo for burial, it is thought now.
‘Requiem’ Meets With
Heartiest Approval
The auditorium of the music build
ing was packed to capacity again
last night to hear a tremendously0
powerful and thrilling production
of Verdi’s Requiem under the fine
direction of John Stark Evans. It
is; perhaps, the most evenly balanc
ed of all masses for solos and parts,
sustaining no particular lead, but
co-Kijdinating all parts and solos
with an excellent balance. The quar
tet of soloists was unusually well
balanced also. It gave Oregon a
thrill to welcome back one of its oldJ
students and see her distinguish her
self so splendidly. Miss Bernice
Alstock, the messo - soprano so
loist, is a graduate of the Univer
sity of Oregon's school of music.

Dime Crawl Pro fits
Fall Below Normal
Slu ing Weather Blamed
For Low Sum
It may have been that the lure
of the mill race and the spring
livened warm dusk was too strong.
Or it may have been that bank
books are skinny, and parses gaping
chasms, in this, the last month of
the year.
Anyway, something “done dirt”
to the •Woman’s league foreign
scholarship fund at the spring term
dime crawl last night and the pro
ceeds came only to .till!.(id, taking
an easy third place to results of
the two previous crawls, $1SH fall
term and t-’()4 winter term.
Pi Beta Phi with $1”.0(> lead the
list. Gamma Phi Beta with $10,115
came second, Alpha ('hi Omega with
$10.Id third and Chi Omega with
$0.-Id came fourth. Alpha Phi, with
t0.10 was fifth.
Martha Swafford* ns chairman of
the foreign scholarship committee,
directed the crawl which she said
yesterday was the first spring term
“crawl” to be held in several years.
With Louise Hills’ year draw
ing to a close, choice of next year’s
foreign scholar is pending, Miss
Swafford said last night. While
no decision has been made yet, wo
