State Church Heads
To Arrive Today For
Religious Discussion
Three Faiths
In Meetings
Jew, Roman Catholic,
Protestant Men
To Lecture
Banquet at Anchorage Is
Planned for Visitors
For the first time in the history
of the university, and probably for
the first time in the United States,
college students will have an op
portunity to hear views of three
religions, Protestant, Jewish and
Roman Catholic, expressed by
state leaders, when the religious
round table opens at 8:15 tonight
in the music auditorium
Dr. Bowman, of the First Pres
byterian church in Portland, will
represent the Protestants. Dr.
Bowman is very well known on
the Oregon campus and many stu
dents are looking forward to his
lectures with interest.
Father Sander of McMinnville
has been selected to represent the
Roman Catholic church. He is
well known in Oregon for his ra
dio talks on the Catholic Truth
society broadcasts.
Rabbi Berkowitz, of Temple
Beth Israel, Portland, a very
prominent speaker, will present
the Jewish point of view. Dr.
Berkowitz will be unable to be
present at the Friday and Satur
day discussions because of his
physician's orders, but will be on
hand tonight for the opening pro
gram. The discussions will be
carried on as scheduled at 7:30
Friday and Saturday evenings ex
cept for the absence of the Jewish
Topics Planned
The subject topics for discussion
tonight will be “What religion
means to me.” Friday’s topic is
“The Significance of Jesus in the
modern world.” “The message of
my church to the modern world’
is the subject scheduled for Satur
day evening. Each man will
speak twenty minutes on the sub
ject of the evening. Round table
discussions will follow the lectures.
Any questions not clear to stu
dents will be gladly answered by
the men.
Because of the large crowd ex
pected it is necessary to limit at
tendance to students1 and faculty;
There will be no admission charge:
Dean Sheldon, chairman of the
board of directors of the- school of
religion of the University of Ore
gon, will preside at the meetings.
Banquet Tonight
The men will be met at the
train late this afternoon by the
student committee. Dean Sheldon
and the visiting speakers will be
guests of the committee at a ban
quet at the Anchorage at 6 o'clock
this evening. Dr. Bowman will be
the guest of Rev. Max Adams
while Father Leipsig will enter
tain Father Sander. Dr. Berko
witz will stay at the Eugene ho
tel Thursday night, leaving for
Portland early Friday morning.
A program somewhat similar to
this is being carried out this year
at Harvard, the three religions be
ing presented by only one man,
President Lowell. A conference
presenting three religious leaders
of such prominence as have been
obtained, speaking on the same
subject the same evening is a
thing never before done for stu
dents, of a college, according to
Rev. Adams.
The student committee in charge
is composed of Wayne Robinson
chairman, Richard Burke, Ale^
Tomkin, Ward Wintermeier, El
dress Judd, Ann Baum, Elizabeth
Scruggs, and Dorothy Shaw.

At Luncheon
pORTLAND, Nov. 20.—(Special)
—"Research is not merely an
academic eccentricity,” declared
Dr. Arnold Bennett Hall, presi
dent of the university, in address
ing' the Portland Advertising Club
today noon. He spoke on the re
search program of the university.
“It is the pathfinder of progress,
and the handmaiden of achieve
ment. The world has gone ahead
only as it has been led by those
who have devoted long hours of
study and toil in research, in
hunting out new methods and new
Research Industries to Benefit
“Today Oregon stands on the
threshold of a great era of devel
opment. Research in industry, in
dustrial surveys, marketing sur
veys in the state, will aid and will
make for general progress. Re
search in the fields of foreign
trade will open the way to pro
lific markets for our products, so
that we can reap the benefit of
wealth that will come this way.
“It is my hope that Oregon may
forge ahead in the years to come.
Research men make this possible,
and it is my plan that the Uni
versity of Oregon will lead in this
field. The university should de
velop leadership that will make
for a richer and fuller spiritual
as well as material life, a leader
ship that will provide the com
monwealth with enthusiasm, with
courage, and with a spirit that
will bring this state with its mar
velous resources, to the fore in
the world at large as well as on
the Pacific Coast.”
Tells of Researches at University
Dr. Hall mentioned specifically
several researches and projects
now in progress at the university
and outlined the workings of the
bureau of business research which
is operating under the direction of
the school of business administra
tion. He also described tlje Doern
beeker hospital, which is known
a3 one of the outstanding institu
tions for treating diseases of chil
dren, of which Dr. Richard B.
Dillehunt, dean of the medical
school in Portland, is the head.
Dr. Hall is recognized through
out the United States as a leader
in research and was one of the
founders of the Social Science Re
search Council of America, the
National Crime commission, and
otl^r noted societies for the ad
vancement in this field.

To Get Bigger Sliee
Out of Profits
Provision Made for $200
Advance To Be Paid
A new system of financial re
muneration to the editor and man
ager of the Oregana was put into
effect yesterday by the executive
council when it accepted a plan
recommended by the student body
finance committee.
The new regulations specify
that both the editor and the man
ager shall receive 25 per cent of
the profits up to $1,000 and 10
per cent of all profit over $1,000.
Under the terms of a motion
passed by the executive council
last spring, the editor and man
ager of the 1930 Oregana will re
ceive no money unless 250 copies
of the book are delivered to the
University by April 15, and the
rest of the edition ready for""dis
tribution by May 1.
New System Adopted
The new percentage system was
devised to give the year book ex
ecutives a more certain and stable
recompense. No definite provision
was made for return to the editor
and manager of last year’s Ore
gana, but the executive council
voted to give both approximately
$200 after a profit of about $600
had been realized by their man
Another provision passed by the
council authorizes the graduate
manager to loan money to the
editor or manager in monthly in
stallments, up to the sum of $200
as a loan against the prospective
division of profits at the end of
j the year.
Football Equipment Needed
The sum of $600 was added to
the football budget when the coun
cil accepted another motion of the
finance committee. This sum will
be used to Duy necessary equip
The council recommended to the
‘ graduate manager that any sale
* that comes within the course of
campus functions, be sanctioned
by the student government
1 through the office of the student
body president.
The recommendation of the as
sistant graduate manager that the
| price of townspeople's tickets to
| the season’s concert series be set
j at $4 was accepted.
Acting of All Star Cast Lauded
Students-Facultv Plav Said Excellent
» j
began their season last night
at the Guild Hall theater with
their presentation of “The Impor
tance of Being Earnest,” a high
comedy by Oscar Wilde.
The players were unusually well
cast and their personal identity
was remarkably merged in the
characters they portrayed. Each
member of the cast is well known
in dramatic circles here on the
campus and some have distin
guished themselves in perform
ances presented elsewhere.
The subtle sardonic wit of Oscar
Wilde which runs all through the
play was pleasantly handled by
every member of the cast. It was
made neither too obvious nor too
incomprehensible, but it was there
and everyone got it as was
evinced by the responsiveness of
the audience.
James Lyons and Cecil Matson
were superbly natural in their act
ing, as usual. They played the
roles of Algernon Moncrief and
John Worthing respectively. Qtti
iie Turnbull Seybolt, as the
haughty Lady Bracknell, displayed
genuine acting and a refined dra
matic technique. Helen Allen, who
played the part of the vivacious
| and witty Gwendolen Fairfax, dis
i played probably the best stage
j presence in the cast. S. Stephen
son Smith as Merriman, the butler,
achieved the task of raising the
I mechanical, listless and back
! ground-forming butler into an ac
j tor with human qualities. Eleanor
Rennie was convincing in her part
as Cecily Cardew, the naive coun
try ward. There could hardly
have been a better portrayal oi
the bookish spinster and the or
thodox minister than given by Le
nore Casford and Louis Artau,
No More Sweaters for Freshmen
Athletes Suggest Finance Group
Cost More Than Class Members Can Afford Is
Committee’s Belief; ‘War Banner’ To Be
Bought; Budgets Granted
Freshman athletes may no
longer expect their class to pur
chase numeral sweaters for them
if a recommendation recently
made by the finance committee
and yesterday approved by the ex
ecutive council is accepted by the
freshman class officers.
“Records of the financial his
tory of last year’s freshman class
show that the freshmen levied
special taxes on themselves to the
extent of $1.75 for each member
for the year,” said John Ander
son, chairman of the finance com
mittee, last night in giving the
reason for the recommendation.
“The same records also show that
each numeral sweater purchased
by the class cost over $7. The
sum expended for them through
out the year constituted a serious
drain on the freshman treasury
and imposed an excessive drain on
the freshman class members.”
The finance committee has re
quired the treasurer of each class
to file a budget with the graduate
manager showing estimated ex
penses for the whole year. The
freshman budget contains no ap
propriation to purchase sweaters,
according to Anderson, and it is
probable that the athletes will be
presented with numerals to put on
sweaters bought by themselves.
Other actions of the finance
committee which received formal
approval from the executive coun
cil yesterday were the proposal to
buy a school "war banner" as soon
as a definite nickname for Ore
gon teams should be decided upon;
the approval of the Women’s
Athletic association budget with
an item for the purchase of
twenty sweaters for awards, and
expenses for one delegate to the
national convention; the approval
of the budget of the Women’s
League; and the offering of $15
to be used as prize money in the
Oregon song contest.
New Schedule To

New Program Instituted
Yesterday Morning
Beginning yesterday morning at
6 o’clock, the Southern Pacific
Motor Transport company inau
gurated a 10-minute bus service
from the university district to the
downtown area on the Fairmount
loop line.
Hereafter, busses will pass the
university district on Thirteenth
street from Alder to Moss street
at seven minutes past the hour
and every ten minutes thereafter.
On the return trip the Fair
mount loop swings out Alder
street, but the Springfield loop
will furnish twenty-minute service
direct to the campus, passing the
Administration building going east
at eight, 28, and 48 minutes after
the hour.
The improved service from the
university district is accompanied
I by the beginning of twenty-min
ute service to Springfield, and is
made possible by rerouting the
Springfield busses over the re
cently completed bridge over the
Willamette river.
Of the 125 graduate students on
the Oregon campus, 54 are women
and 71 are men, according to Dean
George Rebec of the graduate
school. Of these the department
of education and English tie for
first place in numbers, with 10
each. The departments of history
and chemistry tie for second place
with 10 each.
In addition to the 125 graduate
students here, 83 graduates are
taking advanced work in Portland
in various departments, while 11
others are working for advanced
degrees in medicine.

Kitzmiller, Stadelman, To
Make Florida Trip
Persistent rumors that the Ore
gon football team would play an
other intersect ional game in the
east before returning home from
their scheduled duel with the Uni
versity of Florida were spiked yes
terday when the executive council
passed a recommendation made by
the linance committee that no
game except the one at Miami
should be played in the east.
This suggestion was one of
twelve recommended to the coun
cil by the finance committee,

Most of the recommendations con
cerned the game with Florida,
which is to be played on Decem
