of a sophomore banquet.”
Tonight the class will decide
upon some activity and work

Play Offers New
Dramatic Talent
In ‘Twelfth Night’
Eleven Students Will Make
Debut in Shakespeare
Drama Saturday
Eleven people who have not ap
peared heretofore in campus dra
matics have roles in Shakespeare’s
“Twelfth Night,” to be given at
Guild theatre, February 21, 23, 24,
and 25. *
Ralph Engberg, who transferred
from Stanford last term, a senior
in pre-medics, plays the part of
Antonio, a sea-captain who rescues
Sebastian from shipwreck and be
comes his friend and protector.
Howard Ragan, sophomore in for
eign trade plays a similar part and
aids Viola to disguise herself and
become the Duke’s servant.
Eldon Woodin, freshman in art,
appears as Valvolio, steward to
Olivia, the target for the pranks
of the rest of the household. James
Hughes, sophomore in economics,
is Fabian, another of Olivia’s ser
vants of a more ribald character,
who aids in making life miserable
for Malvolio.
The other newcomers are: Har
old Batchelor, as Curio, servant to
the Duke; Max Kaffesieder and
Stanley Elliott, sailor friends of
Viola; Robert Loomis and Burton
Long, as officers who arrest An
tonio; James Henderson, a cour
tier; and Russell Cook as a priest.
Several of the actors who have
been seen before have new types
of roles in “Twelfth Night.” Nor
ma Jacobs, who usually plays com
edy, is cast as the lovely and ro
mantic countess. Gene Love plays
the dissolute uncle of Olivia with
the aid of generous padding.
Charles Jones, plays Sir Andrew,
a Don Juan in his own mind, but
merely offensive to Olivia whose
love he seeks. Donald Confrey,
plays the jester, Feste, and Jean
Williams has the part of Maria,
Olivia’s woman who shares in the
revivals of Sir Toby, Andrew, and
Nancy Thielsen as Viola and Ad
dison Brockman as Sebastian are
cast as twins. Carl Klippel, who
played Johnnie Case in Holiday,
again has a lead in the part of the
Press of Administrative Detail Does Not Give Pres.
Hall Opportunity He Would Like To Meet Students
It is with genuine gratitude that
I take advantage of the generous
offer of the Emerald to publish a
daily communication from me to
the students of the University. The
two handicaps inherent in my po
sition that I regret the most are
that the press of administrative
detail makes it impossible for me
to know in the intimate way that
I should like the faculty and the
student body. I therefore welcome
this opportunity to say a few words
daily to the students that I am
trying to serve. For in the last
analysis the ultimate purpose of
the University under my adminis
tration is to give the student body
the best that is humanly possible
in intellectual training, in spiritual
understanding, and in the develop
ment of high ideals and noble char
I will hope from time to time to
set for certain ideas about student
life and student problems that I
hope will be helpful and stimulat
ing to student thought. But I want
to say to the students now what
I have always said at the begin
ning of my classes when I was
teaching—that the purpose of my
communications is not to get the
students to think as I think, for I
shall be very happy if I can get
them to thinking at all and doubly
pleased if I can get them to think- 1
ing intelligently, honestly, and con
structively. This would be a weary,
worthless world if we all thought
alike, for great thoughts, new dis
coveries, and inspiring ideals are I
more likely to come out of the j
clash of honest opinions and the
impact of honest judgments that
differ than out of a unanimous
agreement, which would be possi

Oregon Beats
Idaho 33 to 27
In Rough Game
34 Fouls Are Called During
Wild Contest at Igloo;
3 Men Ejected
Teams Will Meet Tonight
At 7:30; Horner and
Eberliart Star
In a wild, rough ' basketball
game which was featured by 34
called fouls, the Oregon hoop
squad won their first game on the
home floor last night, when they
edged out the University of Idaho
Vandals, 33 to 27. The two teams
will meet again tonight at 7:30.
Oregon grabbed the lead soon
after the start, when “Stymie”
Dolp sank a free throw. Drum
mond, Vandal guard, gave the vis
itors a short lead by sinking a field
goal, only to have Jean Eberhart
sink three baskets one after the
other to put Oregon in the lead,
7 to 2. Horner and Eberhart con
tributed every point for Oregon in
the first half, except for Dolp’s
foul conversion and Stevens’ field
goal. The score at half-time was
20 to 12 in favor of the Webfoots.
Many Fouls Called
Bobby Morris and Ralph Cole
man, officials, were evidently out
to earn their pay, for they started
calling fouls in earnest at the start
of the second period. Eberhart
and Horngr, for Oregon, and Hale,
Idaho, were forced out on four
personals. Of the 34 fouls called,
30 of which were personals and
4 technicals, the two teams con
verted 24.
Idaho tried vainly to cut down
the Webfoot lead during the last
canto, but the closest they could
get was 32 to 27, just before the
gun sounded. Aukett, center, and
Barrett, forward, led the Vandals
in their offensive. As the end of
the fray neared, both teams re
sorted to rough and tumble flay
ing with the referees calling fouls
right and left. Practically half
the time was spent in picking up
players from the floor, and giving
out free throws.
Eberhart High Scorer
Jean Eberhart was high point
man with 12 markers. He was
closely followed by Barrett and
Aukett, for the visitors, who tal
lied 10 apiece. Cliff Horner, Web
foot guard, showed exceptional
ability in checking.

Christianity Not Unique,
Davis Tells Wesley Club
Christianity is not a unique re
ligion; it has neither a unique
ethic, nor a unique doctrine, said
Mr. Frederick K. Davis, who spoke
before the Wesley foundation |
group Sunday evening on the topic
“Why Christianity?”
“The miracles, the belief in im
mortality, the golden rule, the Man
God, none of these are unique, as
all religious history presents in
cidents of these things,” Mr. Da
vis said. “Surveys that have been
conducted show that the belief in
God is the only thing that Christ
ians agree on,” Mr. Davis contin
Mr. Davis summarized the be
liefs and doctrines of all of the
eleven major religions, showing
qualities of Christianity that were
found in all of them.
Big Shots for Webfoots
Jean Eberhurt, high-point man In last night's game with the Idaho
Vandals, and Hermit Stevens, consistent guard, will be on deck to
night when the Webfoots tackle the northerners at 7:30 in McArthur
court. The contest will be the last with the Vandals for the season.

‘Old Plantation Rays’

Appearing1 in formal concert for
the first time since the presenta

ber, the first division of the Poly
phonic choir will give its winter
term concert at the music auditor
ium next Thursday evening, Feb
ruary 19, singing under the baton
of Director Arthur Boardman.
As a result of many requests,
Gounod’s “Gallia,” first sung by
the choir in a concert given a year
ago, will be repeated. The balance
of the program will consist of a
choral cycle, “Old Plantation
Days,” for which the text was
written by Frederick H. Martens
and the music by N. Clifford Page.
“Old Plantation Days,” accord
ing to Boardman, is a work of real
musical value and wide appeal. It
is not a mere medley of minstrel
airs, hung together by a few orig
inal interpolations, but is an or
iginal work full of color and con
The theme is centered around
life in the old South, before the
Civil war, and the score, of course,
includes a number of period airs,
especially arranged to fit into the
An admission of 50 cents will be
charged for the concert, the pro
ceeds to go to the choir’s fund.
Part of the accumulation from past
concerts was recently used by the
choir’s board of student directors
for the purchase of the two large
silver cups which are now offered
as prizes in the Polyphonic choir

Trees Moulded by
Passing Students
^RK college students Idrssed
with the instinct of acquisl
tiveness, or in other words do
they grab everything in sight?
If you are inrlined to hove faith
and believe that surely Unlver
sity students have passed this
stage, just casually observe the
cedar trees growing on the north
side of Deady hall. Every one Is
curved inward toward the trunk,
and just within the range of a
person’s arm.
According to Mr. Mlckkelson,
the University’s head gardener,
students passing on the walk
by the trees almost invariably
absent-mindedly reach out and
grab a hand full of leaves. The
result is a weird shaped concave
growth which presents the ap
pearance or careful trimming.
But If you should still doubt the
veracity of this story, examine
the regular normal cedar trees
near Beady, but out of conven
ient reach.
Interior Design
To Be Explained

Miss Bertha Stuart Fifth
Speaker on AWS Job

What woman does not think she
has an inborn, though perhaps
hidden, talent for “fixing up" her
room, her home, or someone else’s
room ?
Witness the hours of planning,
of making curtains, of painting
furniture, and of arranging and
rearranging one dresser, one cot,
two chairs, a small table, and per
haps a knick-knack or two which
every collage girl spends at least
once a year in an effort to prove
that her ideas were much better
than those of the last occupant of
her room!
Portland Woman Here
Today at 4 o’clock in Alumni
hall, Miss Bertha Stuart, well
known Portland interior decorator,
will speak at the fifth of a series
of meetings on vocations which
women may enter, being sponsored
by the Associated Women Stu
dents. All women on the campus
are urged to plan to hear Miss
Stuart at this meeting, when she
will discuss interior decorating as
a profession.
Miss Stuart will also be on the
campus from 2:30 until 4 o'clock
today for appointments with girls
who wish to discuss any phase of
interior decorating, and she will
be here tomorrow for similar ap
pointments, which are to be made
through the dean of women's of
The University’s school of archi

five-year course in interior design

of the outstanding divisions of the
University,” declared Karl W. On

The Oregon Daily Emerald, in

who is in charge of the daily edi

area of the campus, but should be
brought to the attention of the

Happiness Is Paramount in
Hawaii, Says Henry Kaahea
Picture to yourself a beautiful '
moonlight night, brilliant stars j
gleaming in the sky, and the whole '
lustre of the heavens reflecting it-1
self from the calm waters of a
peaceful ocean. Soft breezes are
blowing in from the sea, and the
low rumble of the waves as they
roll upon the sandy shore mingles
with the sighing song of the wind
as it whispers through the trees
which fringe the beach. There’s
peaceful splendor in this Hawaiian
scene, and its beauty becomes more
realistic as one hears the soft sing
ing of human voices from the
shore. They are the voices of Ha
waii, Pacific’s islands of romance,
and the people who sing do so be
cause it is the only medium by
which they can express their ap
preciation of the beauty of nature,
nowhere in the world so apparent
as in their native isles. They sing
because they are glad they arej
alive. They sing because their
fathers and their grandfathers
taught them that the paramount
necessity of life is happiness. And
there's no other place under the
sun where happiness is so read as
it is in Hawaii.
Such is the conception of Henry
Kaahea, Hawaiian sophomore in
education, of his native land. Hen
ry has been at Oregon for more
than a year now, and in that time
has made many friends on the
campus. At times, however, he
still yearns for the peaceful scenes
of his native islands which form
such a direct contrast to the hurry
and bustle of everyday life in
America. Oh, yes, indeed, Henry
likes Oregon, but then, you know,
Hawaii is home. And when has a
home like Hawaii it is not easily
