In Nine Acts
By GEORGE ROOT
“Would you like to see my
sketch book?”
This one small statement spoken
by Mac Miller, in the guise of an
artist, to his friend, Slug Palmer,
in a studio setting of easels and
oil paintings, brings a series of
V colorful glimpses of foreign coun
tries with their distinguishing
dances and tuneful folk songs in
the third annual International
week’s highlight, the Parade of
Nations, to be presented this af
ternoon at 3 o’clock and again this
evening at 8 in the women’s gym
of the Gerlinger building.
The pageant, which is under the
direction of Arthur Markewitz and
Louise Webber, calls forth talent
from every nationality represented
on the campus.
Traveler Describes World
The scene opens in the studio of
an artist recently returned from a
trip around the world who is sum
moned by his friend to describe his
Stravels. With the aid of a mam
moth sketch book, which contains
cleverly drawn^ caricatures, he
Summons one by one the series of
countries and peoples with their
songs, dances and costumes.
First appear the native Hawai
ians playing and singing their
plaintive songs of far-away Ha
^ waii. Archy Fryer, Henry Kaahea,
and George Robertson supply the
“atmosphere.”
Going north toward Manchuria
the first stop is at Korea where
Eetty Davis interprets the pictur
esque country in native costume.
In Manchuria the effect of the Oc
cident upon the orient in its mu
sic is shown by Michael Haimo
vitch, Russian pianist.
Songs, Dances on Program j
After swinging south to the Phil
ippines where native boys sing, |
the next stop is Europe and the
gypsy islands of the Mediterranean, j
A band of gypsy dancers is lis- !
tened in on before moving up to j
Spain. Here a real Castilian j
dance is under way with Elva Ba
ker as the center of interest. Bob
Knox will present the adagio.
Christmas carols sung in the na
tive tongue by a German chorus
sound the welcome for the arrival
in Germany. Holland, just across
the way, puts in her bid for notice
t with a characteristic and clever
wooden-shoe dance. The ensemble
is made up of Katherine Bisbee,
Dorothy McMillan, Genevieve
Clark, and Katherine Duer.
Negro Spirituals Sung
Back in the United States there
is a short stop at New York’s
Ghetto for a song or two before
turning to the South. Here negro
spirituals and a tap dance by Joe
Lillard add their touch of Ameri

Skirts To Loan?
A FTER searching the campus
high and low and in all the
crooks and crannies of all avail
able attics, the committee ar
ranging the International Week
pageant for this afternoon and
evening still need some costumes
and are appealing to anyone
and everyone who could supply
them to help them out in this
pinch.
Needed are:
Two bright-colored full skirts.
Two velvet or otherwise Dutch
jackets, the kind that lace up
the front.
That’s all, but it’s extremely
important to the pageant that
these costumes be obtained.
Anyone who has any answering
the description that they would
be willing to loan are asked to
call Mary Wilburn at 1317.
Hall Will Return
Thursday From
Hawaiian Islands
President Derives Health
Benefits From Surf
And Climate
Shortening his stay in Honolulu
an entire week, Dr. Arnold Bennett.
Hall, president of the University,
sailed from Hawaii Thursday and
will arrive in San Francisco Wed
nesday. He plans to come north
immediately and will reach Eugene
some time Thursday.
Dr. Hall left November 6 intend
ing to remain away from the cam
pus for six weeks due to doctors’
orders. During the summer he was
busy reorganizing the administra
tive staff, and this combined with
illness in the family, prevented him
from taking a vacation. Four weeks
of the six were to be spent in Ha
waii resting and enjoying the warm
surf, but his change in plans will
cut his vacation a week short.
Letters that have been received
by Mrs. Marian Ager, secretary to
the president, indicate a most en
joyable time on the islands and a
great improvement in his physical
condition.
Salem Extension
Attendance High
Five Subjects Attract 92
Students This Term
Ninety-two students were en
rolled in Salem extension classes
for the first term, and the per
centage of regular attendance has
been higher than during any oth
er term since the commencement
of classes four years ago.
At present the University is of
fering to Salem people classes in
five different subjects: psychology,
from Miss Celia Hager; art, from
Professor Zane; education, from
Superintendent George Hug of the
Salem public schools; magazine
writing, from Professor Alex Hull
of the Portland extension faculty;
and 20th century literature from
Stephenson Smith of the English
department.
Life May Yet Be Found On
Meteors9 Says Dr. Packard
That life may yet be discovered !
on meteor fragments was the hope
ful comment made yesterday by i
Dr. Earl L. Packard,, professor of
geology. In a recent news story, |
Dr. George Frederick Kunz, a !
scientist representing the Ameri
can museum of Natural History, 1
stated that after studying 850 me
teors he had found no signs of
plants, animals, shells, or fossil
forms.
“It is not surprising that no liv
ing thing has been found on me
teors," said Dr. Packard. “In the
first place these fragments have
been flying around through the at- 1
mosphere for perhaps millions or
even billions of years after leaving
comets or other members of our
solar system or some other solar
^ system. If there had been life on
these fragments in the beginning,,
it could hardly be expected to re
main during- all that time.
“Secondly, if time did not kill
all life, it would seem that the var
ious conditions of temperature cer
tainly would. The range of degrees
probably runs between one or two
thousand down as low as 275 be
low zero. When the meteor comes
within the earth’s atmosphere it
'comes against such tremendous
friction that it is set glowing and
becomes partially fused on the out
side.
“Despite these factors we may
possibly find life on a meteor even
yet. This would depend on certain
conditions that the Jiving form was
of large enough size, and that it
was buried down deep in the heart
or the fragment. If the meteor
fell on Mecury or Jupiter it would
certainly have no chance to hold
anything living, but falling on
Mars, or the Earth, life on meteors
is conceivable.
Fearless Thinking Essential
In Promotion of World Peace
J
Mrs. Kehler Stresses Need
\)f Education in Lecture
On War Eternal’
“War is eternal unless we can
refashion and reorganize our so
cial organizations,” stated Mrs.
Keith Ransom-Kehler, author and
peace worker, last night in her lec
ture, “Is War Eternal?”
"War is not eternal if we learn
to reason our way through to a
conclusion. We must become men
and women of good will. War will
be eternal unless we can train a
band of men and women to rise and
demand the accepted ideas upon
which all our thinking is based in
whatever field.”
The theme of her address was
that the world must be organized
h——
for mutual welfare and not for
conflict. She pointed out several
ways of promoting peace. To do
this there must be a relationship
between nations, and a removal of
issues from politics to their legal
aspects.
“We must educate this new gen
eration to fearless thinking. We
must think our way through and
dispense with conflicts. If we cap
ture men's minds we don’t have to
capture men's bodies.
"We must organize our thinking
so that when the next great epoch
Is made there will be a sufficient
body of fearless and clear thinking
people who will say ‘no’ and will
settle It rationally. A development
of a critical faculty is necessary.
We must have a re-education of
the heart and mind to recognise
humanity as a function.”
Concert Series
Open to Holders
Of Student Cards
Robnett Explains Workings
Of Fund Which Brings
Musicians Here
“It is regrettable that there are
so many students on the campus
who do not yet understand that all
the concerts which will be given
in McArthur court this winter un
der the auspices of the associated
students are free to all holders of
student body cards.’’
So said Ronald Robnett, assist
ant graduate manager, yesterday,
in discussing the plans for the two
piano concert to be given in the
court next Tuesday evening, De
cember 9, by Guy Maier and Lee
Pattison.
Posters Mislead Some
“Many students get the impres
sion that they will be charged ad
mission for these concerts from
the pothers advertising them which
are put up around the campus and
downtown. The posters state
♦there tickets may be purchased,
t>ut this information is for towns
people and faculty members, who
must pay their way.”
Free admission to students is
made possible, Robnett explained,
by a concert fund of- about $4000
Which is made up of 50 cents taken
from each student’s term registra
tion fee. The creation of this fund
wa3 voted by the students several
years ago in order to bring to the
campus the highest types of pro
fessional musicians, who ordinarily
would not come to a city the size
of Eugene.
On Farewell Tour
Maier and Pattison, who will
open this year’s series, are indis
putably the world’s foremost two
piano duetists. They have been
associated for 12 years, and after
building up an international repu
tation, are now on their farewell
tour.
On January 21, Nathan Milstein,
brilliant young Russian violinist,
will appear in the second concert
of the series. Florence Austral,
soprano, will be here on February
5, and the Portland symphony or
chestra on February 22. The se
ries will be concluded in April by
a joint concert of the University
symphony orchestra and the glee
clubs.
Eight P. E. Instructors
At Longview Convention
Eight instructors from the phy
sical education department left
late yesterday afternoon for the
Washington Physical Education as
sociation at Longview today. The
local group, one of four sent by
the Oregon Physical Education as
sociation, was composed of Paul
R. Washke, E. R. Knollin, Earl
Bouchey, Russ Cutler, H. B. Hun
saker, Miss Florence Alden, Miss
Harriet W. Thomson, Miss Margar
et M. Duncan, and Miss Marjorie
B. Forchemer.
The Oregon representation was
arranged by Robert Krohn of Port
land, who is head of the Oregon
association. Other centers sending
delegates were Corvallis, Salem,
and Portland. An instructive pro
gram has been arranged, general
physical education topics being dis
cussed as well as various intra
mural programs.
4Hell, and Way Out’
Shown in Movie
League of Nations
Picture Presented During
International Week
Denounces War
*
“Hell, and the Way Out” was
the subject of a motion picture
presented in the assembly hall of
Villard last night, as a feature of
International week. The picture
presented an outline of the work
ings and history of the League of
Nations, and gave a striking por
trayal of the accomplishments and
purposes of that organization.
The story of Hell was the story
of the World war, and something
of the grief and anguish brought
about by that conflict was vividly
portrayed in the picture as a pre*
lude to the events which were to
bring about the formation of the
League of Nations. The way out
of this chaos into which the world
was flung in 1914 was portrayed
as the path to which the league is
pointing at the present time.
The formation and membership
of'the organization were explained
to portray to the public the amaz
ing precision by which the nations
of the world brought about the
creation of such a ponderous body.
The part that the United States
played in tjie formation of the
league was clearly shown.
The different departments of the
league were illustrated, and a por
trayal was given of how the or
ganization functions when assem
bled at Geneva in regular session.
By historical examples it was
shown that the league can act with
rapidity and effect, and that it
has already illustrated its effec
tiveness in its management of
several international disputes that
have come up since the World war.
The picture was an appeal to
America to cast aside its prejudice
against the league and to take
part in the great increment which
its statesmen have had such a
large part in starting.

Original Number
By Con Hammond
To Be Broadcast
‘Emerald of Air’ Program
To Present New Piece
Sunday Night
Outstanding among the headlin
ers of Sunday night’s “Oregon
Daily Emerald of the Air" pro
gram, broadcast from the College
Side Inn over station KORE, will
be a brand new number, “Snuggle
Up and Love,” written by Con
Hammond. Hammond will make
the first public presentation of this
number in the form of a piano ar
rangement, and the new tune
promises to win favorable campus
attention, as it has already proved
popular with those few who have
been granted special audiences.
Bob Goodrich, Kelsey Slocum,
and Johnny Smedberg, boys’ trio
and new addition to the staff of
Emerald artists, will hold a promi
nent place on the radio hour. Num
bers a Ja Rhythm Boys that they
will harmonize ott include "The
Bluebirds and the Blackbirds” and
"Nobody’s Sweetheart." “Three
Little Words" and “Bye Bye
Blues" will present a different in
terpretation of modern music that
the boys have not yet attempted
to sing.
The Kappa trio, scheduled for
last Thursday night's program ljut
unavoidably delayed, are expected
to do a pleasant bit of note piec
ing. Janet Thacher, Lois Conover,
and Betty Hudson compose the or
gamzation.
The Parlor Propagandists, Bar
ney Miller and Willie Johnston,
will make their last appearance
before the microphone for this
term. However, one of their 1931
resolutions will call for "bigger and
better "dirt” for the ears of the
University, and the boys will be
back on the first broadcast of the
new year.
The Emerald Entertainers, Dale
Brown, Wilbur Thibault, Bruce
Higby, and Sheldon Dunning, will
provide the music between the spe
cial apts.
This tea hour radio program will
be broadcast from 6 to 7 o’clock
Sunday night. Art Potwin is chief
announcer and director for the Em
erald hours, and Chet Knowlton is
his assistant.
Emerald Shows Increase
In Classified Advertising
—
Rapid growth of the Emerald’s
classified advertising section has
led to arrangement of the material
each day under separate headings,
so that similar ads are grouped
together in the column. Dorothy
Hughes, classified advertising
manager, is in charge of the de
partment, which has increased in
the past two months from one or
two ads per day to a daily aver
age of nine or ten.
The Colonial theatre is still
swarding one free pass every day
to readers of the column, according
to Miss Hughes. The name of the
winner appears among the adver
tisements.
‘St Cecilia’ To
Be Sung Sunday
In Auditorium
University Choir, Willi 80
Voives, To Give Annual
Presentation of Mass
Nancy Thiel sen, Edward
Fisher, Donald Eva To
Take Solo Parts
The University choir of 80
voices, made up of the combined
men's and women's glee clubs, will
sing Gounod’s “St. Cecilia Mass”
at the music auditorium Sunday
afternoon at 4 o'clock in the elev
enth annual presentation of the
traditional campus music program.
John Stark Evans, director of the
choir, will play the organ accom
paniment for the singing and lead
the choristers from the console.
Three students, Nancy Thielsen,
Edward Fisher, and Donald Eva,
will be the soloists in tomorrow's
presentation of "The St. Cecilia,”
singing the soprano, baritone, and
tenor leads, respectively. The
singers were soloists in last year’s
production of Gounod's mass and
scored a decided hit.
First Sung in 1920
University glee clubs, now incor
porated in the choir, first sang the
mass in 1920, and the presentation
of the program before the Christ
mas holidays each successive year
has met with growing popularity.
Sunday's rendering of the mass
will be the only one given this
year, according to Mr. Evans. In
previous years "The St. Cecilia”
has been sung by the University
choir at two different occasions.
Expected to Draw Crowd
The mass is expected to draw a
large crowd to the music audito
rium early tomorrow afternoon,
for last year several hundred peo
ple arriving late were unable to
find seats in the small hall which
accommodates only 600 persons.
"The St. Cecilia” was written by
Gounod, a French composer, in the
nineteenth century, in honor of St.
Cecilia, the patron saint of music.
The mass has many well-known
solo parts, and the Christmas chor
ale as a whole is a thing of beauty.
Students and the general public
are welcome at the presentation
of the program. There will be no
admission charge.
Philomelete Plans
Christmas Party
Hobby Croups Will Put on
Affair This Afternoon
The Philomelete Christmas
party, to which all members of
hobby groups and girls interested
in them are invited, will be held
from 2:30 to 5 this afternoon.
The program will consist of
group singing of Christmas carols,
and several musical selections.
Refreshments will be served by the
Woman and Her Sphere group.
The program is being handled by
the Music hobby group and the
decorations by the Nature group.
Marguerite Mauzey, president of
Phi Theta Upsilon, upperclass
service honorary, is general chair
man for the event. Dorothy Hal
lin and Dorothy Kirk are assisting
her.
A group of girls have been ap
pointed to act as hostesses. Among
them are the presidents of all the
hobby groups and the members of
the Charm School group.
New Instrument Able
To Find High Factors
An instrument known as the
factor stencils and used for the
determination of the factors of
numbers running up into the mil
lions has been demonstrated at the
last two mathematics seminars.
The device consists of a number
of sheets with both diagonal and
vertical punched holes in it and
labeled 1, -1, 2, -2, and so forth.
When these are placed one on top
of the other in a box with a glass
top, and a light caused to shine
through from the bottom, the
numbers are taken from the
sheets, and by means of an equa
tion the primacy or factors of a
number are determined.

Webfoot Hoop
Team To Open
Season Tonight
Multnomah Club’s Quintet
To Show Against Ducks
On Igloo Floor nt 8
Reinhart Will Start Strong
Outfit Against Ray
Brook’s Five
The initial effort on the part
of the Oregon basketball team to
show what they are going to do
in the way of winning games this
year will come to the front to
night at the Igloo at 8 o’clock,
when Coach Reinhart sends his
speedy quintet against Ray Brooks’
undefeated Multnomah club five.
The veteran head Webfoot,
Reinhart, indicated that he would
send his. strongest lineup against
the Club men, with lettermen
comprising the starting combina
tion.
“This game, though it is the
first of the season, will be played
in the same way as any other
game. Wa are starting off the
season in real style and intend to
finish it in real style,’’ said Rein
hart last night, as he sent his
squad through a light workout.
Club Team Undefeated
There is no doubt but that Mult
nomah club will give the Web
foots plenty of competition.
Brooks' men have gone through a
number of games already, and
have succeeded in copping a win
in every game, defeating the
vaunted B'nai B'rith five last Sat
urday by a small margin. The
sharp shooting of such stars as
Franny Andrews, "Andy” Bol
stead, and Jerry Gunther, who
used to show the rest of the coast
conference how to make points for
Oregon, is ample proof that Rein
hart’s cohorts will face a lineup
that will be plenty hard to beat.
On the other hand, the Webfoot
mentor will have something to say
about the game himself, figura
tively, as he intends to “get the
jump” on the Clubbers. The fast
style of play used by Oregon is
something that always keeps the
outcome of the game in doubt, re
gardless of whether they are be
hind near the end of the game.
In fact, Oregon has established a
sort of habit in winning games
during the last minute.
Regulars to Start
To bolster the offensive strength
of the starting lineup, Reinhart
will probably use Jean Eberhart
as a sure starter for center; Billy
Keenan, blond midget, and Vince
Dolp, who beats gol| stars in his
spare time, as forwards; and Ker
mit Stevens and Hank Levoff, rug
ged guards
Max Rubenstein, diminutive for
ward; Cap Roberts, big center,
Windy Calkins, Wally Boyle and
Cliff Horner are almost sure to
see action also, with a host of
capable reserves held in readiness.
Tentative lineup:
Oregon Multnomah
Keenan .F. Andrews
Dolp .F. Cherry
Eberhart .C.Inglis
Stevens .G. Gunther
Bevofl .G. Bolstead
Anything From Soup to Nuts
Is Asked of Extension Group
Requests are made of the. Uni
versity extension division on ev
erything from how to build a
swimming tank, to how to start
a fox farm, or how to run a beau
ty parlor, according to Dan Clark,
assistant director of extension ac
tivities.
One man wrote saying that some
time ago he had dropped his knife
in the spring and when he recover
ed it, he found the metal badly
eaten away. The man wanted to
know what chemicals in the water
were responsible for the effect and
if the water would be harmful for
drinking.
Another man in Washington
wrote the department saying that
he had discovered signs of oil on
his property. He described the
character of the soil and the na
ture of some fossils revealed in
his investigation. The man was
anxious to learn whether such soil
was favorable to oil, and asked
also that the fossils of his descrip
tion be explained.
People in the east write the ex
tension division inquiring about
farming conditions in Oregon and
asking whether they should leave
their homes to come west.
Numerous other strange requests
are: How to make library paste,
how to equip playgrounds in grade
schools, how to organize a story
telling hour for children, how to
install a pipe organ, how to re
move stains, how to organize a city
government, how to organize
clubs and present programs, and
what the correct grammatical
forms are.
In a number of cases these re
quests are referred to other de
partments on the campus, and
sometimes to chambers of com
merce.
