Junior Vodvil
To Be Revived
As Class Event
‘Slug’ Palmer Given Post
As Chairman-Director
1 Of Directorate
Lack of Continuity Will Be
Feature of This Year’s
The Junior Vodvil, banned last
year by the faculty, will be re
vived this spring, it was learned
Art Potwin
last night when
Art Potwin, pres
ident of the jun
I ior class, at
I nounced the ap
i pointment of
fOmar "Slug” Pal
mer as chairman
director of the
vodvil director
ateate. In mak
| ing the appoint
Iment, Potwin
said that all the
difficulties attending previous vod
vil presentations have been elim
inated. He stated that certain
rules in regard to the continuity,
presentation, and practice of the
event which were advised by the
faculty have been accepted by the
class, and that both are anxious
that the vodvil should again take
its place among the campus tradi
Positions Are Different
"The directorate of this year’s
vodvil will be constructed differ
ently from those of preceding
years," Potwin said. "The posi
tions of chairman of the director
ate and director of the production
will be combined. As this j^ar de
cides the fate of the Junior Vod
vil a man is needed who can work
with both students and faculty. In
my opinion, “Slug" Palmer is the
most capable man in the class for
this rather difficult task. The con
fidence of the class is behind him
to put over a real Junior Vodvil.”
In addition to the appointment
of Palmer, Vinton Hall has been
named as student adviser on the
directorate, Potwin stated. “Last
year Hall was director of the vod
vil before it was discontinued and
the class hopes to profit from his
experience in handling such an af
fair. In selecting these men I have
had in mind the absolute neces
sity of cooperation between the
class and faculty.”
Continuity Eliminated
The original Junior Vodvil was
a vaudeville in the true sense of
the word. The last few years the
event has grown into the musical
comedy class, envolving definite
continuity. This has enforced the
whole cast to spend hours in re
hearsals, necessitating every par
ticipant to be on hand at every re
hearsal, and to stay the whole
length of the practice period. Con
' sequently the total amount of time
taken from studies was greater
than was justified by the results.
This year there will be no contin
uity. The program will consist of
a number of musical acts enabling
each act to be practiced separate
ly. There will be a limited number
of down towi^rehearsals and prac
tice hours will correspond with
house regulations. “All of these

Health Nursing Is
Subject for Next
To Last AWS Talk
Miss Thomson, of Portland
Faculty, To Give Advice
At Today’s Meet
Public health nursing will be the
subject of today’s vocational guid
ance talk at Alumni hall at 4
o’clock, which is open to all women
on the campus.
Miss Elnora E. Thomson, profes
sor of applied sociology and direc
tor of nursing education at the
school of applied social science in
Portland, will be today’s speaker.
This is the next to the last talk
being sponsored by the Associated
Women Students on vocational
guidance this term.
Oregon Gives Course
Public health nursing requires a
very good professional educational
preparation. The University of
fers a five-year course in nursing
which is considered very good.
The first two years are spent on
the Eugene campus. The third
and fourth years the student works
in a hospital school of nursing in
Portland. During the fifth year
she makes a choice between pub
lic health nursing, hospital admin
istration, or some other special
field of nursing.
B.S. Degree Granted
The graduate from this course
receives a bachelor of science de
gree, with the public health nurs
ing certificate. The University
also offers one and two-year
courses for the public health
nursing certificate, which corre
sponds to the certificate graduates
of the school of education receive,
certifying that they are qualified
to teach. The nursing certificate
is proof that the holder is a quali
fied nurse. This can be earned
without the five-year course, but
is not as advanced as the B.S. de

Student Appreciation of Portland Symphony Orchestra
Brings Tribute From van Hoogstraten to Dr. Hall.
In visiting with Dr. van Hoog
straten after the concert Sunday
afternoon, he said, “This is one of
the finest audiences that I have
ever greeted. Their appreciation
was enthusiastic, intelligent, and
sincere.” It is not often that I
hear a tribute from so high a source
that could please me as much as
did these words of Dr. van Hoog
straten. For an audience compos
ed almost entirely of students to
give the courteous, intelligent and
enthusiastic reception that they
gave to the Portland Symphony or
chestra is a tribute to the student
body's cultural possibilities which
I deeply prize.
To be able to appreciate the
beauty of such a concert, to be
carried away by genuine enthus
iasm and to have one's emotional
life stimulated along such high
channels of appreciative expres
sion is a wonderful experience.
To develop the capacity to ap
preciate fully such an experience
I is something to which we can all
| afford to devote a good deal of
! time and thought. In my judg
; ment, this capacity to have such
fine emotional experience tends to
, enrich one’s personality, to enno
ble one’s' character, to give new
and inspiring sources of lasting
: pleasure and joy that will lighten
one’s burdens and broaden one’s
I life.
As I have frequently said, it is
i impossible for me to conceive of
| anyone comprehending profound
j spiritual values or developing most
1 fully a generous personality, or
j seeing life from its finest point of
j view who has not felt the thrill of
! great music or in some other way
been profoundly touched by the di
| vine lure of beauty in some of its
{varied forms.

that if the names were not turned
in to him by February 28 these
two houses would automatically
be dropped from the competition.
Two Cups Offered
The Polyphonic song contest,

silver loving cups are offered to
the ensemble making the best

Two Faculty Men
Slated for Radio
Talks This Week
Prof. Canoe Will Speak on
Reclamation Projects
Over KORE Today
Two University of Oregon pro
fessors, John T. Ganoe and Dr. Ed
win T. Hodge, will face the micro
phone of KORE this week to pre
sent their ideas on matters of cur
| rent interest to people of the slate.
This is the third week that these
programs, sponsored by the Ore
gon Daily Emerald under the di
rection of Ralph David, have been
given over the local radio station.
Professor Ganoe of the history
department, will speak on reclam
ation projects undertaken by the
United States government in Ore
gon during the regular Emerald
editorial hour from 4:45 to 5:00
today, while Dr. Hodge, professor
in the departments of geology and
geography, will speak Friday eve
ning from 8 to 8:30 o’clock on the
proposed project of canalization of
the Willamette river from Eugene
to Portland.
While on the whole the govern
ment reclamation projects have
been successful in the work of con
struction, the economic success of
the ventures is doubtful, believes
Professor Ganoe. “In financing
these projects, the government in
tended that the settlers for whom
the work had been undertaken
should pay back the money ex
pended by the public,” he said.
“However, the inefficient execu
tion of the business plans has re
sulted in a situation where we are
actually paying out a subsidy for
the development of those projects,
and being unable to recover the
output by taxation.”
Portland Foreign Trade
Expert Will Speak Here
L. W. Hartman, vice-president
of J. T. Steeb & Co., of Portland,
and one of that city’s leading men
in foreign trade, will speak to
morrow at 3 o'clock in 105 Oregon,
H. C. Hawkins, of the school of
business administration, announced
"The Import Side of Foreign
Trade” will be Mr. Hartman’s sub
ject. The speaker is well versed
in this field, having been interested
for a number of years past in the
port of Portland, Mr. Hawkins
Many Applications in for

Critic Finds Good and Bad in
Production of rrT\ivelfth Night ’9
Thielsen Shines as Viola;
Confrey Rated Next
In Popularity
Perhaps those who say Shake
speare should not be acted, have
been strengthened in that view by
seeing amateur performances. We
never expect very much and go
because Shakespeare companies
come to Oregon only once a year
and who are we to go flitting
about the globe in quest of amuse
ment? Wings are much too ex
pensive. The Guild theatre audi
ence that saw the opening per
formance of “Twelfth Night” got
more than it expected, and both
the worst and the best interpreta
tions may be put upon that.
The sad question arises: What
would we do without Nancy Thiel
sen? As Viola, she shows fine un
derstanding of every word she
speaks. Her voice is an example
of “art that conceals art.”
Donald Confrey, as Feste, holds
the place next in popularity. His
singing is natural and his jack-in
the-box antics are charming. He
turns only one somersault, but
looks as though he could turn a
dozen more, which, after all, is the
test of a somersault’s quality.
A piece of stage affording en
trances from behind and beside the
audience, adds intimacy, which is
nice, considering the costumes. The
sailors and courtiers, what with
red or golden curls and bright lis
tening-robin attitudes—would they
were all comedians who can arouse
such mirth! But the credit goes
to the costumes, which are, after
all, just what they might as well
be, and most of us would rather
be amused than be impressed.
The good quick tempo is a de
vice safe in. the care of Nancy
Thielsen or Brockman, and very
dangerous in the hands of some of
the others who turn it to an ‘‘as
I was walking down the street"
chant, which is unintelligible and
keeps a great deal from the audi
ence. From this malady the humor
suffers most. When players, as
well as listeners, struggle to catch
a joke, the cynics get just what
they came for.
Sir Toby Belch and Sir Andrew
Aguecheck, from whom we ask
the most, come and go, as it were
in their humor. Surely Gene Love
and Charles Jones need not over
act in an attempt to be funny.
They must be the most real char
acters in the play and may not
look for shelter within the aura of
romance which belongs to Viola
and the Duke, Olivia and Sebas

A letter to Dr. John R. Mez,

Co-ed Debaters Miss Trains,
Tell Hindus Gandhi Failure
Two victorious and thrilled
women debaters, Mary Caniparoli
and Bernice Conoly, returned to
the campus Sunday afternoon and
announced that “they had a per
fectly grand time, and had been
treated just like queens.”
The Oregon women left on their
debate tour Sunday, February 15.
They debated a non-decision con
test with the University of Wash
ington, February 17; lost their de
bate with Washington State col
lege on February 20, but won over
the University of Idaho that same
evening, and received the decision
over Whitman college on Febru
ary 21. They upheld throughout
the tour the negative of the ques
tion, “Resolved, That Gandhi has
been a benefit to India.”
The tale they told of greeting
Seattle audiences over the radio,
of missing the train twice, of tear
ing over muddy roads in a bus to
arrive only ten minutes before a
debate, of having ten Hindus in
the audience while they showed
that Gandhi had been a hindrance
to India, all sounded like a modern
adventure story.
During the three days which
the debaters spent in Seattle, they
spoke over the radio, were con
ducted around the University of
Washington campus, and upon
leaving were told that their de
bate, which took place in the new
auditorium, had been the most in
teresting one held at Washington
in a long time. Making their way
to Pullman by train, they lost
their first decision debate to
Washington State college. The
train had already left for Moscow
when the women finished their de
bate with Washington State, so
they had to take a bus over some
snow-covered Idaho roads. They
arrived in Moscow ten minutes be
fore the debate with the University
of Idaho.
