Little Bear Visits
Campus But Fails
To Find Brother
''J'HE little brother to Andy,
the black bear of Amos
Burg’s that caused so much
interest on the campus a few
weeks ago came through Eu
gene on his way to Corvallis,
1 but was unable to play once
| again with his long lost brother
! who is now traveling in north
ern Canada.
Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity
at Corvallis adopted the small
bear cub and when a number
of the fellows came over to the
Alpha Beta Chi house for din
ner Sunday they brought the
cub along to see his brother
which was not here. “Pike”
may be his name, but yet that
still is _ a big problem. The
third bear brother remains in
the McKenzie Pass.
Year’s Concerts
To Have ‘’Finale’
Sunday Afternoon
Orchestra and Polyphonic
Choir Will Appear
Underwood and Boardman
To Direct
Coming as a “grand finale” to
a year of unusually brilliant Sun
day afternoon concerts, the Uni
versity of Oregon orchestra, with
the University Polyphonic choir
assisting, will appear at the mu
sic auditorium next Sunday after
A program on quite magnificent
proportions has been lined up for
the University organizations in
their concert, which holds two
fold interest in music circles. It
will mark the first appearance of
the two groups together—and the
combination is thought to hold
splendid possibilities. Moreover,
the two organizations are to de
vote half of the program to opera
in concert form, an infrequent
thing in music.
Special Music Ordered
Both Rex Underwood, conduc
tor of the orchestra, and Arthur
Boardman, director of the choir,
are keenly impressed with the pos
sibilities of developing some very
interesting work in opera singing
with the two groups. Mr. Under
wood has already ordered special
music from Germany for future
work. Though they have not yet
disclosed the selections for Sun
day, they said yesterday that the
program will be from Wagner’s
operas, which are particularly
adaptable, in their rich tonal beau
ty and dramatic quality, to con
cert use.
To Charge Small Sum
There will be a 25-cent charge
for the Sunday program, the only
one of the year for which an ad
mission fee has been asked. The
money will go to an orchestra
fund, explained Mr. Underwood.
The expense of fine instruments,
necessary for further development
of the orchestra is very heavy and
the organization has planned the
concert as a means of improving
the equipment.
Roy Bryson, baritone, assistant
director of the choir, will be the
soloist with the orchestra and
choir. The orchestra w'ill play two
numbers alone and there will be
two of the joint operatic numbers.

Miles Shaw and Ty Smith both

The commission, after three
years of study, recently concluded
its report, which contains discus

also suggested measures to be
taken in order to preserve the
natural beauty of the region by
making the cable railway as in
conspicuous as possible.

U. of O. Chosen to
Lead Community
Forum Movement
Six Valley Counties Semi
Representatives to
Riverside Meet
Philip Parsons To Direct
Policies of Project
The University of Oregon was
elected to lead the community
forum movement in Oregon at a
meeting of leaders from six Wil
lamette valley counties, held Sat
urday at Riverside, Oregon.
Dean Philip A. Parson of the
University school of applied social
science, will direct the work, with
Professor James M. Reinhardt, of
the same school, acting as assist
ant, it is announced. The two men
represented the University at the
Riverside meeting and pledged the
devotion of the University’s re
sources in developing community
work throughout the state.
Dean Parsons, in stating the
policy which he will pursue, de
clared that he will not attempt to
superimpose any arbitrary pro
gram on the organized forums,
but rather will survey all of them
to discover the activities which
the various units desire to follow
and the sort of programs each one
will wish and then to devote the
resources of the University to gflV
ing the people what they want.
“It would be unwise," Dean Par
sons points out, “for any institu
tion or person to attempt to dic
tate to the various units the kind
of programs they are to follow.
The University realizes that any
such course would only result in
failure. But the University is
eager and willing to cooperate in
sponsoring a movement to aid the
development of the villages and
rural communities of the state.’’
Sophomores Receive
Military Certificates
Certificates of graduation from
the basic course in military sci
ence will have been received by
the sophomores who have com

cates, issued by the government,
will entitle their owners to ap
pointments as non-commissioned
officers, and a possibility of a
commission, in case of war or any
military emergency, according to
Sergeant F. I. Agule, of the de
partment of military science.
Student Body
Aided by Loan
Burt Brown Barker Gets
$125,000 From Eugene
Business Man
ASUO To Pay Baek Money
From Building Fund
In Five Years
A loan of $12.r>,000 has been se
cured from a Eugene business man
through the efforts of Burt
Brown Barker, vice-president of
the University, it was announced
Saturday night. The loan is to
help pull the A. S. U. O. out of
the financial hole it is now in.
Though the rate of interest
charged, 7 per cent, is somewhat
higher than might have been ob
tained through the issue of bonds,
as was originally intended, it is be
lieved that the loan will in the
long run prove more economical,
as it will eliminate the necessity
of advertising and sale of bonds,
and allowances of discounts.
To Pay Big Debts
All but $25,000 of the loan will
be used to pay the outstanding
debts of the A. S. U. O., and the
remaining amount will be used in
retiring building bonds used for
the construction of McArthur
court which fall due next fall.
In explaining why money from
the general fund of the A. S. U.
O. should be used to pay building
debts, Karl W. Onthank, execu
tive secretary of the University
last night said tnat when Mc
Arthur court was built a bond is
sue was floated to cover the cost.
Later it was found necessary to
put in improvements in the base
ment which had not been incor
porated in the original plans, and
to cover this expense money was
borrowed from the general fund
used ordinarily for running ex
penses of the student body or
ganization. It was expected that
a few good football games would
be sufficient to pay this debt, but
successful games have been lack
ing during the last few years.
Owe on Igloo Bonds
The A. S. U. O. owes $36,204
on the rest of the McArthur court
bonds, approximately $36,000
which was advanced on the Igloo
from the general fund, $30,000 for
grading of fields, building bleach
ers, and other improvements, and
the remainder of the $125,000 loan
will be used to pay off current ob
ligations. Mr. Onthank explained
that money from the building
fund will be loaned the general
fund until debts of the latter are
paid, but that eventually all the
money paid by students into the
building fund will go cfirectly to
that fund, and none will be actual
ly diverted into the gneral fund.
Of the $26.25 which the student
pays every term, $4.25 goes into
the general fund, to which is added
gate receipts of games and other
similar receipts. Another $5 of
the fees goes into the building
fund, to be used for building pur
poses alone.
High School Grades Are Stressed
-Importance Shown
Personnel Head Gives His Views
That practically all of the stu
dents who have made Phi Beta
Kappa at the University of Oregon
during the past two years were
outstanding scholars in high school
is one of the arguments put forth
yesterday by Dr. Howard R. Tay
lor, head of the personnel bureau,
in refutation of an editorial which
appeared in the Emerald Saturday
disparaging the relative impor
tance of high school grades.
•'Although the writer’s plea that
every high school student should
have a chance to start over again
in college is perfectly legitimate,”
Dr. Taylor said, "when he says
that 'High school habits and ways
are soon dropped when a student
enters the University,’ he is ex
pressing perhaps a wish rather
than the facts. Every year we
have students with plenty -of abil
ity whose inefficient study habits
acquired in high school prevent
them from doing satisfactory work
in college.
“If it were true that a student
loses his high school habits when
he enters college, one would be
unable to explain the high corre
lation which exists between a stu
dent’s high school record and the
grades he makes in his University
Figures quoted by Dr. Taylor
show that among the students
elected to Phi Beta Kappa at the
University of Oregon in the past
two years, of the 41 for whom
high school records are on file, 21
were in the top 10 per cent of
their class in respect to high
school grades. Only one had a
prep school record below the aver
age of his class at the University.
