The campus movie night broadcast
over KOBE last night from 8 to
9 o ’clock was a fast-moving, snappy,
‘whoopee’ piograui throughout. Jim
Sharp acted as master of ceremonies
called for ‘camera’ and introduced
all the ‘scenes’ as they stepped be
fore the microphone.
^The movie idea predominated
during the hour’s program. The
stars in the photoplay that is now
nearing completion on the Oregon
campus made short talks about the
parts they arc playing in the pic
ture. Verne Elliott, Bill Overstreet,
Dorothy Burke, Phyllis Van Kirn
mell, James Lyons, and Norman
Eastman were the principals intro
duced to radio audiences.
Three Songs Featured
Three prospective theme V^ongs
for the campus movie were played
last night on the program. Boone
Hendricks and Nathan Lynn intro
duced the first song on the piano
and violin. Graham Covington and
Howard Wall played their composi
tion as a banjo duet. Hugh Miller
played his suggested theme song as
a piano solo.
The theme song contest for the
movie will be open until June 1.
(Songs must be turned in to Jim
Haley or Carvel Nelson before that
date. The song accepted will be
used with the campus movie wliere
ever it is screened in Oregon and
throughout the country.
Directors Tell Story
Jim Hailey and Carvel Nelson.
. the directors of Jlie film, told the
^ history of the picturey Irow the idea
was originally gotten and finally
worked out in its present shape.
Johnny Kobinson and his Varsity
Vagabonds played “You Took Ad
vantage of Me,” “Do You Ever
Think of Me?” “Blue Nights,” “1
Never Knew,” and “Tiger Hag,”
as their contributions to the ‘whoo
pee’ program.

Memories.” He was accompanied
at tli ' piano by Eliot Wright. Boone

edited this summer in Cortland. The
world’s premier, showing wjUL be

with a talk by Bill Hayward, var
sity tiack coach, ami a program of
music to be presented by the univer
sity school of music.
Movie Shotving Gives
iH"! {"H"
Staff Many New Ideas
The campus movie is really going
to be a corking show, if the preview
of shots shown yesterday at the Rex
theater is any indication.
Of course, this is in spite of the
fact that Dorothy Burke, who ls
the leading, lady, isn t a blond, and
that Verne Elliot, who is the much
abused freshman, hasn’t got those
athletic shoulders and thighs that
are supposed to determine a school s
hero. Verne plays tlie violin. After
the movie is shown, we predict that
lovelorn males will make night hid
eous with wailings of the aforesaid

Jim Lyons proves himself a peach
of an actor in these shuts, but we
are beginning to wonder if there
really isn't something rather bad
about him ince he takes all these
villainous parts so well.

Of course one thing about Jim:
after this movie we all know that
he isn’t in the habit -f frequenting
the mill race, because he can hardly
handle a canoe. Jim Raley, dirge

A tea and program were enjoyed

of tlie literature and poetry group
sponsored by Phi Theta Upsilon,

was given to honor the senior mem

A reception for the Rev. H. W.
Davis, Mrs. Davis, and their son,
Bradford Datson, is being held next
Friday evening. May 24, from 7:45
to 9 o’clock in the First Baptist
church parlors, the Baptist univer
sity students actings as hosts.
Mr. Davis has been religious
leader tor the churches of Eugene
on the campus for the past eight
years and has many friends among
the students and faculty. Mrs. Davis
is director of the halls of residence
on the campus and has seen the
time when the only liallg of resi
donee to direct wore Mary Spillei
for the girls and Friendly for the
hoys. The Davis family are leaving
Eugene this summer to take up theii
residence in California.
The young people are sponsoring
a party the same evening in the
church with Bradford as honor guest
of the evening. Betty Summers is
in charge of the games and enter
tainment of the evening.
The program for the reception is
being arranged by Harry *Lamb,

Mrs. Louis Dodge of Ashland was
visiting her daughter Miss Edith
Dodge during this past week-end at
the Alpha Delta Pi house. On 81111
day Miss Dodge and her mother
were dinner guests of Mr. and Mrs.
Chester L. Stevenson.
At Frolic Inn on Friday evening,

Dorothy Burke has gorgeous eyes;
uses them, too, very well. Perhaps
she has had a lot of practice, or
perhaps she was just born knowing

The moonlight scenes are particu
larly effective, and are really lovely,
especially those taken on the race.
Rather interesting to know that
these shots were not taken in the
moonlight, but on a blue film.
According to the movie shots so
far, it would seem that Oregon co
eds are majoring in men. How
ever, if Verne is any indication, it
must be a pretty good subject. Also
Bill Overstreet V manly charms film
well. Bill is supposed to be the
athletic hero. That’s very fine, but
so far, his prowess has been con
fined to dancing oil a tennis court
and paddling in a canoe with Doro

It seems that we have the same
plot: the hero is wronged bv the
villain. All the world, including
the dean of men, is against him.
Everyone makes fun of him, but
manfully He takes it all. and in the
end his true worth is discovered.
George Godfrey is the dean of
men. Whew! But he can look
stern. Almost as bad as Dean Biggs.
Among those present at the pre
view were Dr. Hall, on one of His
frequent visits at the university;
and Mr. Sunday. Perhaps you.
haven’t heard, but Ron Hubbs has
been christened Mr. Sunday since
he took to using the Emerald as
his pulpit.
Before we close this column, we
must mention Phyllis Van Kimmell.
Phyllis keeps all the men on the
jump and certainly knows how to
manage Norman (Buddie) Eastman.
Buddie is the fat boy. He sort of
got upset in the shots yesterday,
though, and offered Phyllis a pair
of roller skates. We wonder if it
was the first time in her life.

There are two fascinating books

If you wish to peruse something
of a little more serious nature, try
“Charles Dickens,” a biography
from new sources of the famous

“Our Recovery of Jesus” by Wal

in the Dayton Steel Racquet
ONE look at a Dayton tells
you why it’s the world’s
fastest. The steel frame and
strings are thinner and strong
er than wood and gut. That
means less air friction.
The same effort with a Day
ton drives your ballL20% faster
than with other racquets. It
actually gives you the jump on
speedier players.
You’ve a right to demand
facts. Here’s the first question
of a series:
Q. What proves the Dayton
A. Prof. L. H. Young of
M. I. T. made the following
report of air-friction tests in
an airplane wind tunnel at the
,Y. C. Lab.:
“Friction work for the Day
ton amounts to 50% of the
total, while for the woodeii this
is 42%. Surely this friction
factor is most important. The
friction work for the wooden
is 1.75 times the friction work
for the Dayton. This figure is
approximately correct at all
racquet speeds.” Dayton Steel
