Guild Players
Have 'Berkeley
Square’ Ready
Capable Cast To Handle
Many Weeks of Preparation Spent
lender Direction of
Mrs. Seybolt
i __
Th ballyhoo and frenzied prepa
ration are done. At 8 o’clock to
night “Berkeley Square” will bow
lo its public at the Guild theatre.
Weeks of preparation have gone
before this performance. The cast
has strained and fretted over late
rehearsals, irksome lines, difficult
decor; Mrs. Seybolt has trumpeted
lustily and arrayed her charges
nobly. Tonight she sends them
into the fray, prepared to make or
break, as is the way with plays.
Success Almost Certain
There is no reason for this one
to break. “Berkeley Square” is as
good a vehicle as the Guild players
have had. The cast is as capable
as could be marshalled. The sets
are as fine as Director of Effects
Andreini could make them. The
night is Washington’s birthday,
which is peculiarly apt. All these
factors, put together, make a good
Dress rehearsal last night was a
sleek, well-turned out perform
ance. It is said of this play that
there is a magic and a tragedy of
frustration in the situation of that
second Peter who became the first
Peter, who knowing that events
cannot be altered when they have
already happened, must marry
Kate Pettigrew though he loves
her sister, Helen . . . who sees the
eighteenth century not glamorous,
as he had dreamed, but filthy and
cruel; and who, departing finally
from one whose clairvoyance lets
her see the future as he has seen
the past, knows that he has loved
a woman gone beyond recapture.
Characters in “Pink”
W'arren Gram, whether airily
quoting epigrams not yet uttered
by Oscar Wilde, or struggling in
doubt with forces that must take
away from his supernal existence,
invested his dress rehearsal per
formance with an eloquence born
of restraint and economy. Betty
Buffington at times is quite
charming as the Helen who must
be fragile and altogether delight
Taken all in all, we have every
expectation of seeing as delightful
a play as has been done at Guild
theatre in the past several years.
Tickets may be purchased at
Johnson hall.

While Dr. Richard von Kuhl
mann of Germany, who will speak
here on Friday in Gerlinger under
the auspices of A. S. U. O., is gen
erally known throughout the world
as an outstanding German states
man and diplomat, in narrower
circles he is widely known as an
authority on economic questions
and the development of many of
the industries in his native land.
He has been a leader in the de

Chilly Words Fly

Extra! Extra! Ice company vs.

It seems that the physics de

good for 25 pounds of ice, with
which to perform experiments.
Well, formerly the ice order was
for 100 pounds twice a week; but
lately—what with the shifting of
science schools, the famous depres

has only needed 25 pounds.

Unauthorized Statement
qpHE FOLLOWING resolution, purported to be signed by the
interfraternity council, was turned in to the Emerald last night,
scoring the proposed plan for living at reduced costs. The presi
dent of the interfraternity council declared the resolution unauthor
ized as the council will not meet to consider it until Thursday
afternoon. It is merely the preliminary draft made by a com
mittee, members of which appear at the end of the statement:
WHEREAS the interfiaternity council of the University of
Oregon has taken exception to the editorial and story written by
the editor and a reporter in the Emerald, page 1, February 21,
1933, and
W’HEREAS the editor has grossly misinformed the students,
and the public, concerning the living expenses in fraternity houses,
and has minimized the supposed expenses of the ‘ Emerald Plan,”
WHEREAS we believe that the “Emerald Plan” should have a
firm foundation of facts and organization before it can be given
the name, “Emerald- Plan,” and
WHEREAS the interfraternity council of the University of
Oregon believes the aforesaid editorial has brought disrepute upon
that body, therefore be it
RESOLVED, that the council go on record as opposing the
editorial policy of the editor. The council further decries the lack
of substantiating facts, and sincerely hopes that the editor will
use more mature judgment in such matters in the future.
Signed: Interfraternity Council,
University of Oregon.

Slieldon To Talk
On Development
Of Universities
Faculty Lecture To Take Place
At 8 o’clock Wednesday
Evening in Villard
The dramatic story of the rise
and development of the American
university as it is today will be the
topic of Dr. H. D. Sheldon at the
faculty lecture Wednesday night
at 8 o’clock in Villard hall.
Not only will the change from
the old conservative type of col
lege to the modern conception of
a university be described, but Dean
Sheldon will sketch the personali
ties and work of the leaders who
brought the advancement about.
The new movement, which
aroused considerable controversy
for many years, began at the Uni
versity of Michigan in 1852, under
the direction of Henry Tappan,
Dean Sheldon points out. The
work was pushed further at Corn
ell, starting about 1868, with An
drew D. White, millionaire scholar
and politician guiding the destinies
of this institution.
The work at Harvard, begun in
1869 under Charles W. Elliot, will
be described, and the personality
of Noah Porter, whose book
against the new development won
him the presidency of Yale, will be
discussed. Dean Sheldon will point
out the significance of the found
ing of Johns Hopkins at Baltimore
in *876, which marks the begin
ning of real graduate study and
research in the modern university.
The development of the univer
sities, such as Stanford, Chicago,
Pennsylvania and others will be
stressed, and the personalities of
such men as David Starr Jordan,
William R. Harper and others will
be described.
The growth of such movements
as the elective system, graduate
and research work and growth
and development of the profes
sional schools will also be topics.
The lecture has been prepared
to interest all students and faculty

University Will
Be Host To High
School Athletes
! 336 Men To Meet May
20 for Track Event
_ |
New Organization of Eliminations i
Leaves State's Best for
Final Contest
The University of Oregon will be
host to 336 athletes when the
state high school inter-scholastic
track meet is held for the first
time on Hayward field Saturday,
May 20, it was announced yester
day by Tom Stoddard, assistant
j graduate manager, who is promot
I ing the meet.
| In the past the meet has been
i held annually at Corvallis, but on
| order of the board of higher educa
tion last spring the meet will be
j alternated each year between the
j University and Oregon State col
Since the meet has been sche
duled for May 20, the Oregon-Ore
gon State duel meet has been ad
vanced to May 19, so that the high
school athletes will have an op
portunity to see college track men
in action, Stoddard said.
New System Planned
Formerly it was the custom for
any school to enter as many par
ticipants as they chose, but now
the state will be divided into
eight districts and the first and
second places will compete in the
state meet, but in the case of dis
trict eight, which comprises the
Portland High School Athletic
association, the four first places in
each event will be eligible to com
pete in Eugene. The eliminations
will be run off either May 6 or 13.
The new system will correspond to
that used in Washington, Calif or- j
, nia, and other surrounding states.
Colonel Bill Hayward, who will
be the director of the meet, said, !
“The district meets will prove a
more satisfactory plan because
when the athletes come to the
state meet here, only the cream
of the crop will be competing;
against each other. The Univer
sity of Oregon expects to run a
real high class meet in which each
athlete will have a chance to show
his best ability in the events in
which he participates.
“We are endeavoring to ar
range. the track so that every
event will end where it starts.
All field events will be brought
closer to the stands where the
spectators will easily' see every
All preliminaries will be run off
in the morning and the finals will
take place in the afternoon,

organizers are arranging the dis
trict meets and medals are being
Gary Makes Plans
J. L. Gary, principal of West
Linn high school and secretary of
the state board of control, is au
thorizing this meet, Stoddard said.
The state board of control will
appoint a committee of at least
three principals or superintendents
from each district to conduct the
respective meets.
Following are the districts
where meets will be held: 1—
Wallowa, Union, Baker, Malheur,
and Umatilla counties.

Washington Sat for Canvas;
Camera Clicks at Roosevelt
Today cameramen swarm about
the president-elect and dog the ■
! footsteps of the president. So fam
iliar does the sharp click of a
camera become to the first citizen
that he seldom pays any attention.
Not so easy was the making of a
portrait in George Washingtons |
day. When he “had his picture
taken” it took long hours of te-1
i dious sitting, and sometimes the
i extreme discomfort of keeping his
j face expressionless to allow a
: plaster cast to set.
j But as snapshots had not yet
been invented, and Washington
was a man in a responsible posi-1
tion, the great demand for pictures |
of him had to be filled with can
vases done in oil, bronze or mar- j
^ble, but3, or silhouettes. Eventual-1
ly, as he himself wrote in his diary,
“No dray horse came more docile
ly to the thills.’’ Over twenty con
temporary painters made portraits
of him, and one artist, Charles I
Willson Peale, was granted four
teen sittings. Once four artists
painted his portrait at the same
time—Peale and his two sons and
a brother all working from dif
ferent angles.
All this information, and more,
is contained in the “albums of
Presidents’’ compiled through
many years by Professor Freder-1
ick S. Dunn, chairman of the de-1
partment of Latin. One entire al-!
bum is devoted to reproductions of
portraits of George Washington
and articles about them, contain

Group To Act
On Resolution
Group Illegally Offers
Criticism as Official
Lower Board Project Is Derided
As Fraternity Charges
Are Defended
The Emerald's program for re
duced living costs for hard-pressed
students, as proposed in yester
day’s issue, was scathingly scored
in a resolution purportedly issued I
by the Interfraternity council, and
signed by Wm. A. Palmer, Harry
S. Schenk and Jean L. Grady. Vir
gil D. Earl, dean of men and presi
dent of the council, in a statement
issued last night, declared the res
olution was unauthorized and had
never been approved by the Inter
fraternity council.
Group Only Committee
The trio, he declared, was mere
ly a committee designated to draft
a resolution which will be present
ed to the council for consideration
when it meets Thursday afternoon.
The initiative for the formulation
of a resolution was undertaken by
Harry S. Schenk, president of Sig
ma Pi Tau and Jean L. Grady,
president of Chi Psi.
The resolution, which is printed
elsewhere on this page, criticized
the Emerald’s plan for reduoed
living costs for hard-pressed stu
dents, and takes exception to va
rious statements contained in the
news story and editorial published
Accuracy Disputed
Exaggeration, misinformat ion,
and lack of factual foundation
were the principal charges hurled
at the Emerald by Palmer, Schenk
and Grady. Presenting the "reso
lution,’’ the trio claimed the av
erage fraternity house bill was
$38 rather than $40. In reply to
the Emerald estimate of dormitory
charges of "about $25,” the Inter
fraterniby council committee de
clared that the monthly costs were
$26 plus social fees.

Part Time at University
Dr. Rosalind Wulzen, assistant
professor of zoology here, will
spend half of each week next term
teaching at Oregon State, remain

Her schedule for next term is
as follows: Monday and Tuesday,
two labs and two lecture periods
in general physiology at this Uni
versity: Thursday and Friday,
lecture periods and labs in ele
mentary physiology and general
physiology at Corvallis.
Dr. Wulzen stated that she will
maintain her home in Eugene,

It Can Be Done!
BOARDING on two-bits a day is not a pipe dream! It can be
done. And for the past five months four University graduate
students have been doing it and liking it. Thirty dollars a month
covers food and gas bills, and the food is plentiful, the Emerald
is informed.
The boys do their own cooking, buying and budgeting. And by
trimming costs carefully they went through the month of Janu
ary at a total cost of $55, or a per-man cost a little below 25c a
day. Never in the past five months has the cost for board exceeded
$7.50 a month per individual.
The quartet has plenty to eat. There has been no loss of
weight, even though the boys have to go easy on the desserts. Meats
are plentiful: pork steak, salmon, beef liver, meat loaf, veal cutlets,
beef steak, lamb chops and at least once a day.
Do they like it? Well, here's what one of the quartet says:
‘'It s the best possible arrangement for guys that work; it might
be better if our mothers cooked for us, but they’re all about a
thousand miles away.”
Here's a sample menu for a typical day:
Cereal with Milk
Toast and Marmalado

Fried Eggs
Bread and Jam

Bread and Butter

By Local Expert
Dean Karl Offers Assistance in
Bringing Individuals
Interest in the cooperative living
plan for students on the Oregon
campus was evidenced yesterday
by approximately 10 students
who called Dean Virgil D. Earl in
search of further information on
the project. The dean signified
that while no definite plans had
been formulated, he would be glad
to aid in bringing students to
gether who might join the under
Along the line of meals for the
groups, a menu of three meals a
day for one week was drawn up
by the home economics depart
ment with the idea of providing
a balanced ration, variety, and of
keeping cost as low as. possible.
It provided for four adults at a
total cost of $6.17 for the week.
Daily Cost Low
The average daily cost of the
food for each person, according to
the budget, would be 22 cents.
Foodstuffs quoted at low prices
predominate in the menus. The
largest single item is for milk.
Other commodities used extensive
ly are apples, carrots, spinach, po
tatoes, eggs, butter and bread.
Several students who i*ead the
menu commented that, while lack
ing some of the frills, it compared
favorably with fraternity fare.
Careful planning and proper pre
paration would keep the plain food
from becoming monotonous, it was
Dean in Favor
"I am heartily in favor of do
ing anything that will aid stu
dents in getting their educations,”
was the comment of Dean Earl.
"Last winter and spring this of
fice attempted to get several stu
dents started in a cooperative pro
ject. Only about 12 were really
interested, however.”
It is believed that the greater
financial stringencies have in
duced a larger number of students
to become interested in such a pro
ject and that it will prove fairly
popular. The significant part is
that it was men who made the in
quiries yesterday, while those tak
ing part in the project last year
were all women.
The tables for the menus were
prepared by the home economics
department, from information its
personnel had on hand. They were
gotten up at the request of the
editor of the Emerald. The table
of prices for the menu which ap
pears on page 1 are found else
