Ten Hour Conference
Decides Policies
Three Main Organizations
Arrange for Complete
An innovation in furthering co
operation between women’s organ
izations was made Sunday when
representatives of the Associated
Women Students, Y. W. C. A., and
Women’s Athletic association met
in a 10-hour session at the home
of Dean Hazel Prutsman Schwer
y The conference began at 9 a. m.
and continued, with several inter
missions, until 7 p. m. It was
called by Ann Baum, A. W. S.
president, with a view to co-ordi
nating better the work of the or
ganizations, eliminating possible
overlappings of activities, and ac
quainting those in each group with
the work of the others.
Recommendations Made
Among the recommendations
made by the group, most of which,
it is predicted, will be put into
the form of working regulations,
include the following:
1. All meetings of the three or
ganizations to be scheduled at the
A. W. S. office to avoid conflicts.
Complete schedules of plans of the
organizations to be in the dean
of women's office. Term and year
programs of each organization to
be exchanged.
2. Attempt to be made to elim
inate over-organization, through
avoidance of; duplication in per
sonnel of organizations, through
making appointments to develop
new girls, through limitation cf
freshmen activities.
3. Cooperation of other organi
zations to be secured in sponsor
ing Peter’s lodge.
4. Understanding of purpose and
program of W. A. A. to be fur
thered by women of other organi

ed to A. W. S. council to take care
of women’s activities.
6. Freshmen girls to name girls
they would recommend as Big Sis ■
ters for next year.
7. Addition of course in practi
cal home economics and home
management to be requested.
8. Possibility of having advisers
available for consultation at end
of term to be investigated.
9. Conference to become annual
event, scheduled for beginning of
fall term, and to cover an entire
The program for the day was
divided into four meetings. The

lach for the W. A. A., Helen
Chaney for the Y. W. C. A., and ,
Helen Evans for Philomelete.
Problems Discussed ,

that he hopes to get started on in

Jean Eberhart. He was the tall
young man who played center on
Oregon’s 1930 basketball team.
Swift and rangy, he was the type
of basketeer the Webfoots need so
badly this season. Basketball
coaching is Jean's specialty now.
He’s in charge at University high.
This is his second year there. In
his first season, he failed to reach i
the state tournament as district
representative only because little

tournament. He has a veteran 1

fast. They practiced with the Ore- !

4 P. M.
The Yeomen and Friendly hall
handball squads checked in with
victory in the intramural handball
tournament yesterday. The Yeo
men trounced the Fiji aggrega
tion, three matches to none. The
hall handballists humbled the Pi
Kaps in two out of three matches.
In the Yeomen-Fiji onslaught,
Sol Schneider of the Yeomen had
little trouble in disposing of Mil
lard Schmeer by a score of 21-10,
21-13. In the other solo tilt, George
Stager of the victorious team
blasted Lee Chester off the court
to win, 21-1, 21-3. In the doubles,
A1 Schneider and Paul Hughes,
Yeoman stalwarts, defeated J. An
derson and Graham West, 21-17,
In the Friendly hall-Pi Kap con
tests, Louis Yturri of the hall
slugged the ball all over the court
to emerge victorious easily over
Villard Kiel to the tune of 21-3,
21-5. John Yerkovich scored the
only Pi Kap success when he
showed his superiority over Walt
Johnson, 21-8, 21-11. The Friendly
hall doubles pair, Howard Minturn
and Meredith Sheets, got a mo
mentary scare in the second set but
ran it out in easy fashion to cap
ture the match from Floyd Dor
ris and George Niemi to chalk up
I a victory by a count of 21-3, 21-8.

They were “Comfort Ye,’’ and the
air “Every Valley.”
Lemke followed with a Bach
i “Prelude and Fuge in F Minor,”
and the Andante and Scherzo
movements from the "Pastorale
Sonata” by Beethoven. The aud
j ience was amazed at his accuracy
and depth of feeling. Bach at his
simplest is difficult to interpret,
but Carl Lemke handled it with
finesse and delicacy.
Spittle’s second group consisted
of foreign compositions: "Bois
Epis,” by Lully, and the well
known “Still Wie Die Nacht.”
Lemke’s second and final group
consisted of “Mazurka” and “Hu
moresque” by Tchaikowsky, “Lo
tus Land,” by Cyril Scott, and the
ballet music from “Rosamunde” by
Schubert. In this group the high
spot of the program was reached.
Lemke, although he played all four
selections in a very accurate and
understanding manner, attained
peak of his interpretations in Cyril
Scott’s "Lotus Land.”
Spittle’s final group, and the
concluding numbers of the pro
gram, were Clay’s “I'll Sing Thee
Songs of Araby,” Stanford’s “My
Love’s an Arbutus,” and “Drink to
Me Only With Thine Eyes.”

then and have lots of fun.”
“There would be some who would
be benefited by it, and some who
would just be made lazy,” said Dr.
Edmund S. Conklin, chairman of
the psychology department. “But
of course there is no experimental
evidence as to what the results
would be.”
Dean Henry D. Sheldon, of the
school of education, cited an in- j
stance in which such a program 1
was tried in San Francisco. “They I

had difficulty with management
and discipline, especially with
those who didn’t want to go to
school and would just simply loaf.”
Dean Sheldon also felt that such
; a plan would induce students to
' prepare for occupations for which
they were unfitted, and that,
though it might be a temporary re
lief, it would make a worse situa
! tion later on.
“The situation would be some
thing like the one we had during
war time,” M. H. Douglass, Uni
versity librarian, said, “when the
Student Army Training corps was
paid to go to school. They were
quartered in barracks on the cam
pus and were not allowed to go out
side certain limits without permits.
Their attitude toward their stud
ies was even worse than that of
the average college student!”
Catherine Mason, sophomore in
English, expressed a more favor
able opinion. "It means a great
deal to a nation to have its citizens
trained. If they can't afford to gc
to school, it certainly would be
worth paying them to do so. And
it would mean opening up a lot of
jobs for people with families.”
Whether taking 7,000,000 chil
dren and young people out of their
jobs would give place to 7,000,000
adults who are unemployed was
doubted by Victor P. Morris, of the
department of economics. “But I’ll
admit,” he added, “that it would
be better than some of the ways
in which money is being wastefully
spent on the unemployed now.”

Romance, religion, nature, poli

pictorial form yesterday at the Co

Basin debaters showed pictures of
their 35,000-mile good-will tou**

There was a touch of the pro
fessional in the presentation whicn
was just a bit surprising. The
pictures were small, but were clear
and well-chosen. On the screen
were pictures of scenery, of na
tives, of architecture and art, of
religious ceremonies and quaint
customs of the Orient, of war
spirit in China, and of wild life in
Wilson Conducts Tour
Dave Wilson was tour conductor
for the first lap of the journey
upon which he took his audiences.
Pfaff took up the interpretative
job and conducted his audiences
through India, and Miller brought
them home through China, Japan
and Hawaii. The “talkie” arrange
ment was excellently carried out.
Music accompanying the pic
tures was appropriate, and sound
effects and lighting added some of
the professional touches. The feel
ing of personal interest which the
audience felt in the travelogue wa3
heightened by the fact that the
pictures showed many scenes in
which the debaters themselves
were actors.
Many Unusual Scenes
Particularly interesting bits of
the program were the pictures of
oriental religious customs and
rites in India, scenes depicting the
festival of Buddhists in Ceylon,
Hawaiian natives, and Japanese
war maneuvers. Among the mys
terious and haunting scenes were
those of temple beggars in India,
and burning of the dead Hindus
ilong the Ganges.
The audience left the program
with a feeling that they had a
quick and economical trip through
the Pacific Basin countries with
clever and interesting guides.
