Men Shovel Dough
To Throw Party
For Co-Ed Victors
Wails of “Yes, it’s the man who
pays and pays and pays,” were
permeating the atmosphere of the
“shack” yesterday as Rufus Kim
fball, editor of the special men’s
edition of the Emerald of a week
ago, made the rounds of the male
journalists, asking them to dig
down, down deep, and produce .
their share of the expenses for
giving the winning women of cam
pus newspaperdom a party.
This party is to be at the
“shack,” in commemoration of the
victory of the all-feminine Emer
ald this spring over the all-mascu- ■
line edition. The party represents
the stake, and the men promise to
make it a good one.
Typewriters will be cast aside
at 8:30 next Wednesday, and Em
erald workers will join in celebrat
ing the advent of feminine supe- j
a riority in campus journalistic cir
' cles.
Forceful, dynamic, and exceed
ingly interesting is this gentleman
from California. Frank H. Skipper
will -deliver the main address at

Hawaii Cruise
Sailing June 19
Dean Gilbert Will Head
Summer Staff
May Exceed Enrollment
Mark of 75, Alfred
Powers Believes
The University of Oregon sum
mer session cruise to Hawaii will
leave here June 19 with approxi
mately the same enrollment as last
year, and with a possibility that
the total of 75 may be exceeded,
it was stated yesterday by Alfred
Powers, director of summer ses
sions, who also announced the fac
ulty to accompany the venture.
Headed by Dr. James H. Gilbert,
dean of the college of liberal arts
and sciences, the faculty will in
clude S. Stephenson Smith, asso
ciate professor of English; Samuel
H. Jameson, associate professor of
sociology, and Miss Agnes Camp
bell, instructor in art, Holmby col
lege, Los Angeles.
Miss Campbell Known
Miss Campbell, a sister of the
late Prince L. Campbell, who
served as president of the Uni
versity, is well known in art cir
cles in Oregon, and is regarded as
one of the leading artists of the
Pacific coast. She will instruct in
this subject, a field which is par
ticularly attractive in Hawaii,
where not only scenic effects are
world-famous, but where unusual
cloud and marine subjects can be
obtained. Miss Campbell is a
graduate of the University with
the class of 1913. She is well
known to the campus, since she
taught in summer session last
Mr. Smith, whose latest book,
"The Craft of the Critic,” is at
tracting wide attention, is the au
thor of numerous articles in his
field, and has won high recogni
tion as a teacher. He plans spe
cial courses in literature that will
be of unusual interest to students
on the cruise.
Sociology Work Practical
Much of the teaching in sociol
ogy, to be done by Dr. Jameson,
will be in the nature of practical
laboratory work, since Hawaii, due
to the many races there, is noted
for studies in this field.
The cruise this year will be on
the Empress of Japan, vessel of
the N. Y. K. line. The ship is the
largest and most luxurious on the
Pacific, and makes the run from
Vancouver to Honolulu in five
Only a limited time remains for
signing on with the cruise. Full
information may be obtained from
the extension offices of the Uni

Ruth Warren Is
Winner of Jewett
Speaking Contest
Potwin Wins Second Prize;
Campbell Third, Doran
Fourth Place
Miss Ruth Warren, sophomore
in education, won the first prize of
$35 in the W. F. Jewett after-din
ner speaking contest held last
night at Lee Duke’s cafe. Her
topic was “The Price of Fame.”
To Arthur Potwin went the sec
ond prize of $25. He spoke on
“We Actors.” Wallace Campbell,
speaking on “Intellectual Acci
dents,” won third prize of $15.
Herbert Doran, who talked on
“This Way to the Circus,” was
awarded fourth place, which car
ried with it a prize of $10.
The general topic for speeches
was "The Great American College
Bandwagon.” Miss Warren, who
won first prize last year in the
freshman women’s extemporan
eous speaking contest, had for her
theme the idealizing of heroes
both by colleges and by people out
in the world.
The judges were Mrs. Charlotte
R. Donnelly, secretary of housing
and employment; W. F. G. Thach
er, professor of advertising and
English; and Vernon X. Miller, as
sociate professor of law. Walter
Durgan acted as toastmaster.
Politicians Turning Thoughts
• To Class Elections Tuesday
Factions Plan Hard FF ork
To Get Students
Out at Polls
With nominations over, the
thoughts of class politicians now
turn toward elections, which are
to be held Tuesday for all classes.
The freshmen and juniors will vote
in the lower hallway of Villard,
while the sophomores will vote in
the lobby of Johnson hall. Polls
will be open from 9 to 3.
A slight upset occurred in the
senior class race when a third can
didate entered the field for treas
urer, making all tickets complete.
This was contrary to an announce
ment by the party leader at a late
hour Wednesday, when it was
stated that the ticket would enter
the field minus a treasurer.
Four free-lancers were added to
the lists of aspiring candidates
when the wits of the junior class
placed in nomination four of their
most prominent classmates for the
position of senior class barber.
The fact that the demand for
candidates has been unusually
heavy this year, because of the
larger number of tickets, has tend
ed to bring most of the houses off
the fence in the interests of their
own aspirant. Support is for this
reason quite definite now, and the
elections will undoubtedly be won
by the factions that are most suc
cessful in getting their voters to
the polls.

Portland Puppet
Company To Give
Guild Show Today
Play and Three Skits on
Program Under Art
School’s Backing
“Ye Merrie Guilders,” a Portland
company, will present four puppet
plays in Eugene this afternoon and
evening at the Guild theatre, un
der the sponsorship of the school
of architecture and allied arts. Ad
mission will be 50 Merits with no
reserved seats. Performances will
be at 3 and 8.
Three short skits and a main
play will be given at both shows.
“The Walrus and the Carpenter,"
from the famous story of Alice;
“Nature Study,” concening the
meeting of a bird and a worm, and
“Gustav and Katrina,” a short
number with hand puppets, will be
the three skits. The main play
v/ill be "A Pot of Marigolds,” by
Harold F. Lindergreen, an adapta
tion of an old French fairy tale.
The Portland company, which is
composed of Mary Lu Mallory and
her brother, Rufus, and Eleanor
Braden, of Beverly, Mass., is but
two years old, but has already
gained a great deal of notice by
the performances given at their
work shop at Oak Grove. All the
plays they have presented so far
have been entirely original in adap
tation and design, although later
they plan to go into classical mar
ionette literature for their plays.
Interest in puppet plays is re
viving in the United States in re
cent years, and the “Merrie Guild
ers” hope eventually interest here
will be great enough to support a
theatre of their own. They have
received the endorsement of the
Puppet Guild of Boston for their
Juniors Vote $800
To Band Uniform
Fund at Meeting
Money Is From Week-End
Profits; Picnic Set
For Mid-Week
The junior class will donate $800
of the profits of Junior Week-end
to the fund for new uniforms for
the University band, it was de
cided at the last meeting of the
class for the year, held Thursday
night in 107 Villard.
The class voted to hold its an
nual picnic some afternoon and
evening in the middle of the week,
instead of on Memorial Day, inas
much as many members of the
class will be out of town on that
week-end. Helen Kaufman was
appointed chairman for the affair.
Joe Hughes, class treasurer,
gave a report on the financial con
dition of the class, showing that
there is approximately $1100 in
the treasury. After the donation
for band uniforms is made there
will be a remainder of approxi
mately $300, and Art Potwin, class
president, appointed a committee,
consisting of Joe Hughes, chair
man; Ken Jette, Elizabeth Strain,
Chet Knowlton, and Carolyn Ha
berlach, to decide what shall be
done with this money.
The greater part of the meeting
was taken up with the nomination
of candidates for class offices for
the coming year. Jack Stipe was
named chairman of the election
committee. Qualifications for vot
ing were read by Miss Haberlach,
vice-president of the class.

I Newman send
f their athletes out
I to do battle.
| Six Oregon
men, three of
, them nationally

on Hayward
field today. Ralph Hill, national
intercollegiate champion in the
mile; Bobby Robinson, Northwest

of the world’s record in the discus,
are the most prominent.
All 3-Year Veterans
Bun Stadelman, shot-putter, Len

competition after today. All are
three-year veterans, and have won
many points for Hayward.
Many and varied are the opin
ions of the dopesters as to the out
come of today's clash, but all voice
the common consensus that the
margin of victory will be small,

ing the two teams on the basis of
results against Washington the
teams are within a fraction of a
point of each other.
A complete entry list, subject to
Hayward’s usual last minute shift

long-awaited decision, especially
by Orange coaches, as to what

settled when Hayward stated that
he would be placed in the 880 and
two-mile runs.

Jim Travis Urges Cooperation
Student Officers and Graduate Manager's Office
Staff Gould Better Financial Situation
(Editor’* note: Thin is the
sixth and last of a series of per
sonality interviews with recent
ly elected student body officers.)
Although Jim Travis, new junior
finance officer of the A. S. U. O.,
is the son of J. L. Travis, city edi
tor of the Ore
gonian, he has no
intention of be
coming a newspa
per man. Raised
on the smell of
printers’ ink, the
life of a news
hawk has little
appeal for him.
His major is
pre-law, which
win give him, he
Travis believes, a broad
er education than a specialization
in any other field. He is not at all
sure that he will continue with law,
however, and upon graduation may I
go into business or some other
special interest. •
Travis was born in Portland,
Oregon, and graduated from Wash
ington high School in that city. He
is one of three of the newly elect
ed student body officers who are
registered from Portland. The oth
ers are Walt Evans, vice-president,
and Irma Logan, secretary. In
spite of the fact that an older
brother matriculated at Washing
ton and wanted Jim to go there,
he early decided to attend Oregon.
His chief hobbies are swimming,
athletics, and canoeing. As a re
sult of his interest in canoeing, he
has been chosen as an instructor
this summer in an exclusive boys’
school near Lake Hebron, New
Hampshire. He will leave Oregon
immediately at the close of spring
term and plans to be away prac
tically all summer. After the close
of the boys’ school in August, he
will spend a month’s vacation in
