Latin Pageant To
Show in Portland
Students Urged To Attend
Play October 18
“Dido and Aeneas,” a Latin pag
eant celebrating the 2,000th anni
versary of Virgil’s birth, will be
given in Portland at Grant high
school on Friday and Saturday,
October 17 and 18.
Miss Nina L. Greathouse of Jef
ferson high school, director of the
play, urges all University of Ore- I
gon students interested in Latin
to attend this pageant while they
ere in Portland to see the Oregon
Washington game October 18.
This pageant has been produced
in the East with success, but the
production in Portland will be its
premier western showing.
Admission to the play will be 25
cents and 35 cents. There will be
no reserved seats.
Dance Group Slates
• First Meet of Year
The Master Dance group will
hold their first meeting of the
year on Wednesday evening, Oc
tober 8, from 8 to 8:30. The pur
pose of the meeting will be to
elect a new president to succeed
Lucille Worth, retiring prexy.
Dates for tryouts for club candi
dates will be arranged, and plans
for thq future discussed. It is
urgent that all members turn out.
Hall Loses Title
On Office Door
Most of the time Dr. Arnold
Bennett Hall, president of the
University of Oregon, cannot
help being called “Doctor” Hall,
or "President” Hall, and occa
sionally some enthusiastic
toastmaster adds a few more
designations, but in his own of
fice here on the campus the
University head has managed
to arrange things so he can for
a time be just plain “Mr.” Hall.
In the new suite of adminis
trative offices, completed this
summer in Johnson hall, the
door of the president’s office
is labeled simply “Mr. Hall,”
with no further designations.
Metschan To Be
Main Speaker at
Sigma Delta Chi Plans
Series of Campaign
At a breakfast scheduled for
Wednesday morning, 8 o’clock
sharp at the Anchorage, Phil
Metschan, republican candidate
for the governorship of the state
of Oregon, will be the main speak
er on the program. The meeting
which is sponsored by Sigma Del
ta Chi, national professional jour
nalists honorary, is the first of a
series at which each of the guber
natorial candidates will be the
guest of honor.
The breakfast is open to the
public, according to T. Neil Tay
lor, president of the journalism
Invitations have been issued to
all members of the faculty, and ac
ceptances received from many.
Those who intend to attend the
breakfast are requested to get in
touch with Miss Davis, secretary
to Dean Eric W. Allen of the school
of journalism, so that places may
be set for the correct number.
“This meeting is not intended as
a show of strength for Candidate
Phil Metschan, nor will any of the
proposed meetings be such. The
idea is to give students and facul
ty on the University campus the
opportunity of gaining acquain
tance with the gubernatorial can
didates so that they may form
their opinions with a better under
standing, and vote with a wider
knowledge of the individual mer
its of each candidate,” Taylor
Following the breakfast pro
gram, Mr. Metschan is scheduled
to address Dean Eric W. Allen’s
class in editing. The three candi
dates have been invited by Dean
Allen to visit the campus and pre
sent their cases to the students in

Frank O. Lowden
The work in industrial and busi
ness research being carried on by
the school of business administra
tion of the University of Oregon
is of immense value to the state
at large, it is declared by Frank
O. Lowden, former governor of
Illinois, and one of the most out
standing authorities on American
industry, it is announced here by
David E. Faville, dean of the
school, who has just received a
letter from Mr. Lowden.
Mr. Lowden has received two of
the Oregon bulletins, “An Indus
trial Audit of Oregon’’ and “Port
land’s Share in Export Traffic.”
Of these he says: “I have gone
over these two bulletins with
keenest interest. The University
has made, I think, a distinct con
tribution to the welfare of the
state. The citizen, whatever his
calling, often is so occupied with
his own affairs to be unable to
envisage even his own industry or
occupation as a whole, much less
the sum of the activities which go
. to make up a great state. The
i work you are doing, therefore,
ought to be of immense value to
the citizenship of Oregon. I am
i glad to see the University striking
i out along this new path.”
Governor Lowden visited the
campus a year ago and delivered
the commencement address. At
this time he also received the hon
orary degree of doctor of laws.
Gusto of Foreign Musicians
To Mark Recital by Steiner
.Wm Cello Instructor in
Department of Music
To Appear Sunday
Once you see Fereriz Steiner
you don’t doubt that he comes from
foreign lands. He has gusto, much
polish and gallantry, and warmth.
Ferenz Steiner is the new cello
instructor at the school of music
and right now he's particularly in
the public light because he will
make his first concert appearance
here at the music auditorium, Sun
day afternoon, at 4 o’clock, open
ing the University's music season.
There is something pleasant
about this musician—something
very refreshing, because he is
quite out of the pattern of our
American business man.
Mr. Steiner was at the music
building Friday afternoon rehears
ing with Aurora Potter Under
wood, who will be his accompanist
tomorrow. Too busy with his
classes and rehearsal to stop for
long, Mr. Steiner nevertheless
chatted a minute or so and ex
pressed his satisfaction with Ore
gon, his new home state, some dis
tance from Budapest, Hungary,
where he was born and received
his musical education. Bu£ the
entertainment he provided was
better than an interview—it was
a “dress rehearsal” of the Sunday
concert. All the wormth of his
personality goes richly into his
playing and he does something
that brings the cello to life. His
program is brilliant and includes
one of his own compositions. His

For Fall Donut
Three Leagues Will Play
In Intramural Lists
A startling innovation will be
made in intramural sports this
fall due to the adoption of separ
ate schedules for independent and
fraternity groups entered in the
swimming and basketball tourna
ments. Such was the announce
ment released yesterday afternoon
by Paul R. Washke, physical edu
cation director, who is endeavor
ing to establish new lines of com
petition on the campus.
Under the new system the inde
pendent groups, which includes
the various halls, will compete
with each other, and the frater
nities will do likewise. A third
league will be composed of repre
sentative teams from the four
classes;—seniors, juniors, sopho
mores, and freshmen. The basket
ball tourneys are slated for an ap
proximate date of a month from
now and the swimming meets will
While there are undoubted ad
vantages to th$ new system, it is
to be deplored that really good
teams from the fraternity and in
dependent ranks will not engage
in some of the hot struggles that
featured last year’s basketball and
baseball tourneys, when an inde
pendent quintet and the Gamma
and Friendly hall nines played on
an even basis with the winners un
til the final games.
New Mathematics Book
Will Be Used in Course
Beginning this fall a new text,
“Unified Mathematics,” written
by W. E. Milne and D. R. Davis,
of the mathematics department,
will be used in the unified mathe
matics courses for freshmen.
The work during the first term
will be done with mimeographed
copies which have just been re
ceived. Milne and Davis have been
working on this text for the past
year. After testing these mimeo
graph copies, they intend to pub
lish the course later in book form
Milne and Davis have taught
unified mathematics for a number
ol years and believe the course
v/ill be decidedly improved from
that jji the past.
Called Good Field
By New Professor
Harry S. Hawkins Believes
Portland in Position
The most fertile field in the
world today for those interested in
foreign trade is Oregon and the
Pacific Northwest, it is declared
by Harry S. Hawkins, for the past
three years a member of the for
eign treaty division of the depart
ment of state, and now professor
of foreign trade in the school of
During the past three years the
new Oregon man has had an ex
tremely interesting career. It has
been his duty to confer with ex
perts of other countries on trade
relations, submit his findings to
the secretary of state, who in turn
submits them in the form of
treaties to the senate for ratifica
I tion. Much valuable information
on trade relations has been
brought to Oregon by Mr. Haw
kins, and this will be at the dis
posal of students and others.
Before joining the state depart
i ment, Mr. Hawkins served for two
years on the faculty here. Pre
vious to that he was on the fac
i ulty of the University of Virginia.
| He graduated from Olivet college
I in Michigan in 1917 and received
his master of business administra
tion degree from Harvard in 1921.
Mr. Hawkins has already started
a study of port and shipping fa
cilities of Oregon. Portland has
made remarkable progress in the
past few years in shipping, he de
clares, but this is but a small
growth compared to the future
which the port has.
Mr. Hawkins is taking the place
left vacant by William F. Fowler,
who is now a member of the fac
ulty of the school of business of
‘Oregon Band Is Best
This Year,’ Says Stehn
“The University of Oregon band

the band. Eighty-one men are en
rolled this year, while only 60
turned out last year. The band
goes to Seattle October 9 to boost

Way Thru College
‘I Prefer Scotch Schools
To English and French,’
Most of the students in the Eur
opean universities earn their own
living, according to Professor H.
G. Townsend of the school of phil
osophy, who traveled in Europe
“There is not the appearance of
luxury in the English and Scottish
schools that one finds here in
America,” he said. "Most of the
European students live in poorly
provided quarters. Some of their
rooms are equipped with furnace
heat, but the majority of them are
not. At Oxford and Cambridge
the students live in their own re
spective colleges along with their
tutors and eat in a common dining
hall. One finds at these two uni
versities, special sections for dif
ferent human needs. For instance,
there is a special college for sales
men and a special one for the la
bor group. Class distinctions are
more pronounced at these two col
leges than at the others I visited.
“I think that I prefer the Scotch
schools to those of England and
France. They seem more demo
cratic and more like those in
America. I visited the Universities
of Glasgow, Edinburgh, and St.
Andrews while in the North.”
Professor Townsend said that
most of the English and Scottish
institutions were supported by en
dowments and public funds.

A touchdown by Kitzmiller when

Trip Across Great Salt Lake
Desert Thrilling to Autoist
Driving through the Great Salt
Lake desert by moonlight was the
adventure experienced last sum
mer by Grant Anderson, junior in
business administration. The fam
ous Utah waste land is literally a
sea of salt about 60 miles long and
40 miles wide, and is known as
one of the greatest wonders of
“The salt had the appearance
of snow under the light of a full
moon," said Anderson, describing
the trip. “On all sides of us as
far as we could see there was noth
ing but salt in pure white crystals.
We found it difficult to keep to
the road, but our lives depended
on our doing so. Just off the high
way the salt is treacherous as
quicksand, swallowing anything
that comes upon it. The reason is
that water lies just a few feet be
low the surface.
“On an average of every quar
tcr-mile we came across an auto
mobile, just the top of it showing.
Some foolish motorist had driven
off the road, and the car had sunk
‘‘The explanation for the Great
Salt Lake desert,” continued An
derson, ‘‘is that the sea once cov
( ered the area. Some convulsion of
land shut off the water inlet, and
the sea evaporated, leaving noth
ing but pure salt. At intervals
along the road we came across
crevasses a hundred or so feet
deep. Sometimes water could be
seen flowing at the bottom of
‘‘The road wound right through
the middle of the desert, but no
sign of habitation or vegetation
was seen during the whole trip.
However, most of the United
States is supplied with salt from
that place, and there is said to be
enough of it to furnish the world
for a million years.”
