Thornton A second edition of Aristophanes: i printed in 1547 and presented to the University by Richard H. i Thornton, former dean of the school of law, is preserved in the library vaults among other liter ary treasures. This book was printed on the Basel press in France by an un identified printer of the 16th cen tury. The binding sheet of the book is a medieval copy of the Psalms of David written in Latin and including several bars of mu sic. The first line may be trans lated, ‘‘I have gone astray like a lost sheep.” The title page is written in both Latin and Greek as follows: “Nine comedies of Aristophanes f with ancient commentaries and the addition of a very bounteous index containing everything worth know ing.” Shortly after the publication of this edition, the plays were pre sented by a company of Greek players. It is probable, according to Mrs. Landros, instructor of Lat in and Greek, that this very text was used by the actors. Monks of that age told their pu pils to read the plays so that they could contrast the vice and ab scenity of the comedies with the purities of Christian life. This the students, no doubt, were willing to do. In 1562 copies of the book were ordered for use in the .schools When making this order the church issued the following bull: “Comedy is a mirror of human life that brands its disgraceful acts with polished wit.” Reinstatement Is Petitioned For Bob Allen Student Plea Is Circulated For Deposed Managing Editor of Emerald Allen Blameless, Ousted Offieials Say; Decision Upheld at Rehearing Petitions were circulating last night, addressed to the student re lations committee and the execu tive council, asking the reinstate ment of Robert Allen, who was ousted from his position as man aging editor of the Emerald, when the executive council, on recom mendation of the student relations committee, took away all student activity privileges for one term. This action followed a meeting of the student relations committee yesterday afternoon at which they refused to alter the recommenda tion to the higher body. Allen was granted a hearing before the group. Committee Drops Case George Cherry, president of the student body and chairman of the committee, last night said that no new evidence had been brought up that wc^uld call for a reversal or change of opinion. John Creech, yell leader, Brian Mimnaugh, chairman of th'e Ore gon rally committee, and Allen were suspended from participation in student activities for one term on the charge of having directly or indirectly been responsible for inciting a student rally on the Fri day morning preceding the Oregon State football game. The student committee claimed this was in vio lation of a gentlemen’s agreement in spirit entered into the day be fore the rally. Allen Held Blameless Both Creech and Mimnaugh ad dressed and signed a statement to the student relations committee in which they stated that Allen was in no way connected with the plans for the Friday morning rally. The committee held that responsibili ties on jobs could not be shifted. Allen printed a banner at the top of the page which read, “Ore gon Spirit Is on the Warpath. Rallies Are the Order of the Day —Any Time—Any Place.” The committee supported their original decision that Allen was nevertheless guilty of assisting with the rally which had not been duly scheduled.

H. Douglass, librarian, announced yesterday.

The subject of the papers pre sented is “Books I have Read Dur ing the Year and What They Have Meant to Me.” The first prize is $30 in books to be selected from the Cooperative Store.

Christmas Program Popular A presentation of the "Messiah” at Christmas time has become an institution in many cities of the United States. Last December the Cortland Symphony orchestra, with Mr. Boardman as tenor solo ist, gave the "Messiah” with mark ed success. Tljis will be the most ambitious production that the Polyphonic choir has undertaken in the year and a half that it has been organ ized. Arthur Boardman joined the Oregon faculty as head of the voice department in the summer of 1929, after several years of oper-j atic engagements in Italy. In the fall he organized the Polyphonic j choir, practically the only organi zation of its type and size in Ore gon. Boardman To Direct The choir has been training for the oratorio since the beginning of the term. The orchestra is being trained by Rex Underwood, its conductor. During the perform ance, however, Boardman will di rect both choir and orchestra. The concert December 14 will be the first appearance this year of the full strength of the choir. The first division, ‘consisting of 40 voices, appeared in a Bach cantata early in November.

Choice Based On Merit Only By Committee Fraternity and Polilcal Affiliations Are Given No Consideration Constitution and Plans To Be Drawn Up Today Al 4 O’clock Fifteen sophomore men were chosen yesterday by a committee of upperclassmen as charter mem bers of the new sophomore class service honorary group that will be installed on the Oregon campus. The executive council passed upon the selections unanimously. The sophomores, all outstanding in campus and class activities both last year and this term, were se lected for the honor group solely upon merit, and without thought of fraternity or political affilia tions, according to Ken Curry, chairman of the upperclass com mittee which picked the 15 men. Charter members of the sopho more service honorary are: Bill Bader Larry Bay Gordon Day Ted Jensen John King Ed Kinney Virgil Langtry Charles Larkin Kenton Lawson John Marrs Carson Mathews Richard Mumaw Jim Travis George Vaughan Freeman Young Carefully Picked The choice of the 15 men for the honor organization was made from a list of more than 60 names com-' prising the best men from each house, hall, and independent group. The upperclass committee then discussed each man according to his present standing on the cam pus and his future possibilities, and considered the honor each would be to the organization while he was an active and past member. "On all university campi that have similar sophomore honorar ies, the group is the most coveted goal of all underclassmen,” George Cherry, president of the Associat ed Students, said yesterday in dis cussing the new Oregon group. "The purpose of the honorary here is the same.” Men Active The men chosen for the sopho more organization have entered into a variety of activities on the ! campus. Eay was freshman presi j dent, and Travis is president of the sophomore class. Jensen was chair man of the sophomore informal. Day is advertising manager of the Oregana.

Or ' maybe the prospect of George ' Christenson exchanging chit-chat ; with Cecil Sherwood of the Oregon ' State squad in the cool depths_.*of the aliimnae0hall, of the Gerlinger buiiding-appeals' more to the read ers’ fancy. I At any rate, if Oregon and Ore- i gon State followed the custom of Dartmouth and Harvard after their respective football struggles, they would have a delightfully informal l tea after the annual encounter on the home field. And wouldn't the alumnae hall be an appropriate place for such a gathering? ! The game would probably have tc start at 11 o’clock as did the St. | Mary's encounter last week, only the provocation would be to give the boys time to hustle home and don their dark suits, best ties, and overcoats, mufflers and gloves to make a proper impression on the admiring throngs who had just watched them score dashing touch downs. For according to a clipping re ceived by Karl Onthank, dean of personnel, from a friend of his in the East, the Dartmouth squad at tended the first informal tea of the year in the lounge of the Dillon field house after the recent Har vard-Dartmouth game. About six members of the Har vard squad dropped in during the afternoon, along with their coach, Arnold Horween. Little cubes of white frosted angel cake, some with red H’s and some with green D's across the top, proved the most popular form of refreshment, the clipping states.
