A Yen to Perform
TT IS a joy to entertain, and to entertain well brings additional
"*■ reward. That is why over thirty-five houses entered the
Emerald-KORE radio contest last year, and the reason even
more are entering their programs in competition this winter
Nature has built in the human a desire to display his accom
plishments and to provide amusement for his fellow men. Na
ture has instilled a longing in man to seek such entertainment.
From these two gifts arise immense motion picture organiza
tions, theatres, and shows. Many devote their entire lives to
this, not because of other desires, not for the money involved,
but because of their love for the work.
Still, many do not have an opportunity or such an intense
desire to enter the professional field. These persons, neverthe
less, possess the inhibited want to perform. An outlet should be
provided—an outlet is made possible on the campus of the Uni
versity of Oregon by a competent drama department, school of
music, class shows, and radio programs.
We speak now of the coming Emerald-KORE radio contest.
This opens the stage to every student in the University, whether
he or she be an independent, in a dormitory, or a fraternity.
All will be included and given a free; hand. The programs will
be carried on throughout most of winter term and be given each
It is most essential that each organization enter so that a
hundred per cent floe of talent may be broadcast to all Inter
ested listeners. The programs may be of any nature—a clause
which provides freedom to entertainers and added opportunity
to organizations which possess a one-sided supply of talent.
The Emerald-KOFiE contest is something worth while, a pan
acea for the "I can't do its,” a clear stage for unlimited oppor
lUST what is the true value of so-called all-American football
** teams, fans along the Pacific coast have asked since the re
cent Shrine game in San Francisco. Forty-four selected men
appeared in the lineups in that contest men who had been
chosen from the pick of the football players of the country.
Among that group of men were included many who had been
chosen on the various all-American teams men who were
counted upon to shine in the annual charity game. Football
writers up and down the coast wrote many columns picking
out the men who they thought would star. Only two of them
bothered very much about Johnny Kitzmiller.
The game itself is history now Kitzmiller is known over
the country as the man who, almost single-handed, made possible
the great western victory. Kitzmiller, the man who was not
even picked to start the game for the West, stood out above
the rest of the stars.
Why was Kitzmiller not chosen on the important all-Amer
ican teams? Should the mere fact that Oregon did not have a
good schedule keep a man of his ability from that honor? The
experts have all thundered an emphatic "NO” since the Shrine
A typical quotation from one of the many stories written
in praise of Kitzmiller after the game follows. It was written
by Elliott Metcalf, sports editor of the Tacoma Times. “As the
throngs looked they marveled and as they marveled they ex
‘•'HOW t'OMK THIS MAN wasn’t on ANY ALL-AME1U
“For Kitzmiller was everywhere, doing everything as an all
American should do.
“You can have your Huffords you can take your Ernie
Pinckerts- you can play with your Moffats, Mohlers, and Duf
lields but give me Kitzmiller of Oregon.'1
To Russell J. Newland, Pacific coast sports editor of the
Associated Press, goes the credit for being the first man really
to pick Kitzmiller as the outstanding back on the coast. A
quotation from a story by Newland dated December 7 follows:
“Having looked over every football player of any consequence
on the Pacific coast this season, the writer nominates Johnny
Kitzmiller, University of Oregon halfback, as the best all ’round
performer of 1930."
Quite naturally it would have been very gratifying to Kitz
miller if he had been chosen on a major all-American team,
but it must be nice to be able to set back and know that he
is responsible for the rapid drop in the stock of a great many
“pickers" of all-American teams.

Dean of Women
“Although I admit that the boys'
‘dirty cord’ fad on the campus j
has sometimes disturbed me, I!
think that our girls dress in excel- I

man Schwering, dean of women, '
leading a discussion of high school i
deans of -/omen Saturday morning,
on the topic, "Manners, Morals, |
"Womc 1 should demand of men
a certain conduct,” continued Mrs. i
Schwering, “not artificial, but an

“YVe cannot force our opinions
on students,” she declared; “there
must be an original assenting urge
within them. Fortunately, very
soon after a student’s arrival on
the campus, the social censor is
recognized as one of the most in
"I think the natural, matter-of
fact attitude of the young men and
women of today toward moral
problems is a fine thing,” stated
Dean Schwering in conclusion, “and
I certainly hope that the old-fash
ioned attitude will return with our
present fashion trend.”
Folktales To Be Recited
To Spanish Club Tonight
Folktales, which are today being
recited orally around the firesides
of the Spanish in New Mexico, will
be told to the Spanish club, 7:30
tonight at Westminster house, by
Juan B. Rael, instructor in Span
ish. Mr. Rael has just returned
from New Mexico where he has
been collecting the folktales of the
Spanish songs will be sung by the
club members and also played on
the phonograph, following the talk
by Mr. Rael.

up. As the time lengthened, the
concern grew greater.
A week passed by. Monday
morning headlines in the Portland
Oregonian stated: “Ex-Bible Stu-,
dent Shoots Girl, Self. Frustrated 1
Wedding Plan Causes Double
Slaying. Katsuda obligated to Re
turn to Japan Soon, Sought to
Take Miss Shigemura Along.”
The story revealed that Katsuda
had kidnaped the young lady, Miss J
Shigeno Shigemura, about a week
ago, and held her prisoner for a
day, while he pleaded with her to
marry him and return to Japan.
Failing in this, Katsuda broke
through the glass of the front door
:>f Ihe Shigemura home Sunday and
shot and killed his sweetheart and
then turned the gun on himself.
“And to think that we had a
murderer-to-be for a cook!" wailed
Tom Stoddard Monday morning.
“He was so mild and even-temper
ed, we never dreamed he would do
such a thing."
George Robbins could not explain
it either. “It must tiave been a
case of temporary insanity, because
iie never showed anything but very
peaceable tendencies around us.”

effect that the Emerald is planning
to sponsor another KORE broad

when we were congratulating our

someone has to start an idea like
that to begin the epidemic anew.
