said yesterday.
| The plan has
I been devised to
keep non-Univer
s i t y - registered
men and women
from holding
campus appointive ornces.
Irma Logan in Charge
Irma Logan, secretary of the
student body, will be in charge of
the checking work, Mimnaugh
said. All appointments made by
any elected officer of the A. S. U.
O., publications officials, or sports
managerial heads must first be
handed to Miss Logan for verifica
tion. When checked for eligibility
they will be approved for announce
ment to the campus, according to
Formation of the checking of
fice resulted from an expose in the
Emerald last term of the Mathews
case, in which a student not regis
tered in school held three campus
appointive offices. Following the
first disclosure, other cases came
to light and Mimnaugh moved to
prevent a possible recurrence of
the situation.
KechecUing Promised
Appointive positions that con
tinue from one term to another are
to be rechecked at the first of ev
ery new term, it is announced.
“In establishing this checking
system,’’ Mimnaugh said last night,
“we will be absolutely sure that
every student receiving any sort
of committee or staff appointment
on the campus is eligible to hold
the position. It is a good move.”

Although “Adagio and Allegro—
op. 95” from the “New World”
Symphony is written by Anton
Dvorak, and is reminiscent of the
composer's visit to America, the

written by outstanding organists
and composers.
Charles M. Widor, contemporary
musician of Paris, wrote “Andante
Cantabile—op. 13,” and “Gavotte”
from the charming “Mignon” is
composed by Thomas.
The last number, “Chorale—

French organist, is famous for its
elaborate development of a simple
chorale theme.

Professor Warren D. Smith’s
class in physiography will make a
field trip today to one of Oregon’s
cement companies at Roseburg.
The class expects to find some
very interesting structural and

mines which will tie-up with their
present class work. The class will
be taken under ground where they
will climb several hundred feet in

"Mighty Oregon" Composer
First U of O Band Director
It was back in 1921 that Albert
Perfect, composer of Oregon’s tra
ditional school song “Mighty Ore
gon,” came to the University as
a faculty member for a period of
three years. To him might be
given the title of "father” of the
University band, which today has
become one of the best organiza
tions of its kind in the Northwest.
At this early period, however,
the band lineup consisted of a very
few students and was merely a
pep band. Mr. Perfect, who is
now teaching privately in a junior
college out of Los Angeles, in
stilled a spirit in the band which
today still lives—the spirit which
gives that atmosphere to football
and basketball games.
Andrew “Landles was the next
director. To him is given the
credit of starting concert work in
the band. The concerts consisted,
however, or only one appearance
during the year at a student as
sembly. Landles, who is teaching
privately around Eugene, was di
rector for two years.
A former Portland Symphony
player, Walter Farris, then took
over the directorship in 1927. It
was during Farris' three-year pe-|
1 riod that the band started attend
ing the Oregon-Oregon State foot
ball game at Corvallis and the
games in Portland. Farris was a
military man and is now with the
Hill Military academy as director
of the band.
It was three years ago that John
Stehn, graduate of Grinnel college
in Iowa, with an M.A. from the
University of Iowa, came to the
University from the University of
Oklahoma, where he was teaching
mathematics. In his college days
Stehn played oboe and clarinet in
the band and orchestras of the
two institutions he attended. He
also played in the Oklahoma Sym
phony. At present he plays first
French horn in the University or
Much credit is due Stehn for the
development of the band since he
enrolled with the University fac
ulty. One reason for this develop
ment is that two years ago upper
division credit was not given the
members. Only the two years of
military credit was given.
In tomorrow’s concert the at
mosphere of finesse will be added
by the striking new uniforms. The

First Concert
' Two Programs Planned
For Winter Term
Presentation Open to Town
And Campus People
Free of Charge
The University concert band will
give its initial appearance this
year at the school of music audi
torium Sunday afternoon at 3
o’clock. This hour of concert is
open to the public and no admis
sion will be required.
This concert will be the first of
two concerts to be given this term.
The next program will be given
Sunday, February 28, at the Music
buildipg. During the spring term
the band will give outdoor con
certs on the mill-race every Sun
day afternoon.
Italian March First
“Inglesina,” a march by Delle
Cese, is the first number on the
program. It is a typical Italian
military march. Florid melodies,
elaborate woodw i n d embellish
ments, and startling dynamic con
trasts make this number almost
without equal as a military march.
The overture “Stradella” by Von
Flotow, known best by the lovely
horn quartet which opens the num
ber, is the second to be given. A
bright middle section is followed
by a majestic finale.
"Scenes Pittoresques” by Jules
Massanet is a number showing the
composer’s variable ability. The
titles of the four movements de
scribe the suite accurately:
Marche, Air de Ballet, Angelus,
Fete Boheme. It presents the
composer in an entirely different
mood from that of “Phedre Over
ture,” which the band played last
“Faust” on Program
Gounod's selection, "Faust,” con
tains the well-known “Soldiers
Chorus” and waltz, together with
other melodies from this opera,
which ranks as one of the most
popular operas of all time.
The last number is the colorful
“Southern Rhapsody” by Lucius
Hosmer, an American composer.
Harp obligato in this number will
be played by Doris Helen Patter
son, member of the music school
faculty. This is her first appear
ance with the band, but she has
made appearances with the Uni
versity orchestra and numerous
solo appearances.
This composition is a skillfully
blended fantasia on southern airs,
and original melodies based on fa
miliar Dixie rhythms. Humor,
pathos, and gayety alternate
throughout the number. The har
monies and rhythms are intricate
at times.

Trying to Forget the Wa
As the time for the big enemy offensive draws near, the group

Two Critics Unite in Praise

style which would have passed

his countrymen eased the shock of

up their Dickensian humor; also,
they took great pains to maintain
their amateur standing: indeed,
the war is presented in this play
from a domestic angle, as a war
run by civilians, lately schoolboys
—which is pretty close to the
But the players had mastered
this atmosphere so well, and kept
so perfectly in their assumed Eng
lish characters, that it required
none of the effort usual in the
theatre to suspend one’s disbelief.
For once, there was no patronizing
talk in the lobbies; and not even
the captious murmured “Pretty
good for amateurs.”

When the University concert
band, dressed in natty uniforms,
appears at the music auditorium
tomorrow, the old proverb of “wo
man’s place is in the home” will
again be disrupted, contradicted,
dislodged, or what have you.
For the first time in the history
of the musical organizations whose
history goes back to 10 years ago,
the enrollment of the band will be
featured by the inclusion of a
freshman woman student.
Betty Jane Burke, freshman in
English, is the University student
who holds this distinction. Before
coming to the University she
played in the band and orchestra
of Burlingame high school, Bur
lingame, California. She also plays
with the University orchestra.
"Because Miss Burke is a very
capable player and also because
bassoon players are not plentiful,
she has been selected to play in
the concert tomorrow,” said John
Stehn, director of the band.
Oregon, however, is not the first
to claim this distinction as the
Oregon State college band has
two women players on their line
up. Although many women players
are found in the high school bands,
Lhe trend has not reached the uni

tion is still unusual.

Honolulu Case Exaggerated
By Newspapers, Funai Says
The Hawaiian islands, “the par
adise of the Pacific,” are true to
their name. Honolulu is not only
a city where real internationalism
prevails but it is also an American
city where American citizens of
both sexes and of all races are safe
and happy, Richard Funai, a Jap
anese member of the International
house from Honolulu, said yester
day when asked to comment on
the newspaper reports concerning
assaults on white women commit
ted by Hawaiians of mixed blood
“The newspapers have exagger
ated the facts on the recent as
saulting and attacking case in
Honolulu,” Funai said. “If the vic
tim were a Japanese or a native
Hawaiian woman, and not the
young and attractive wife of an
American naval officer, the news
about the incident would hardly
have spread beyond the city
Funai was born in Honolulu and
has lived there before he came to
the United States to get a college
education. He is at present en
rolled as a senior in the Eugene
Bible college and expects to enter
the University next fall. “Hono
lulu,” he continued, “is just like
any metropolitan city on the coast
or elsewhere in the union. Crime
of this kind happens anywhere
every once in a while. It should
not be surprising, therefore, if it
was committed in Honolulu.”
Funai explained that A1 Moana,
a district near the beach of Wai
kiki, where Lieutenant Massie’s
wife was attacked, is a new sub
urb. It is a place of questionable
reputation and naturally frequent
ed by gangs of delinquent boys
and men. If the young naval of
ficer’s wife went there, she was
exposed to the danger of being a
victim of the whims and caprices
of any of the members of these
gangs, he stated.
“It is exceedingly regrettable
that Mrs. Massie was attacked.
However, that this incident hap
pened does not mean that ‘Hono
lulu is unsafe for naval officers’
wives. It is also a pathetic thing
that Lieutenant Massie, his soci
ety-known mother-in-law, and two
enlisted men of the navy toox the
law in their own hands and mur
dered the accused attacker of Mrs.
Massie, thus prolonging the whole
story,” Funai concluded.
