VOL. XXXV *r UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 8, 1934 NUMBER 70 Gleemen Slated For Program In ASUO Series 1 Eugene Singers Replace University Band ADMISSION IS FREE Request Numbers to Be Offered At Concert, Says Director John Stark Evans Eugene Gleemen have offered to sing on Sunday, February 18, as one of the winter term free con cert series sponsored by the asso ciated students. The program will take place in McArthur court. This group, 80 strong, under the direction of John Stark Evans, pro fessor of music, will take the place of the concert of the University band, previously scheduled for this date. The band concert will be given on the following Sunday. Requests to Be Sung “The program will not be a rep etition of our December concert, but will be in the nature of a rath er informal complimentary request program for the benefit of our many friends who have been sup porting us in past years.’’ said Evans. Requests for numbers to be sung may be made in writing by addressing John Stark Evans, care of the school of music. The gleemen will appear in Port land on Friday in a Shrine benefit program at the municipal auditor ium. The program combines massed chorus singing, solos, duets, and violin numbers, and will feature a special arrangement by Evans of Liszt’s “Liebestraum,’’ including piano, baritone, and tenor solos with the chorus. George Bishop, baritone, and Don Eva, tenor, ac companied by Miss Cora Moore, will be the soloists for this num ber. Concert Free Unlike the concert of Roland Hayes, which was paid for by the associated students and presented free of charge to students, this concert has been donated entirely by the gleemen and will not cost the A. S. U. O. anything. The Eugene gleemen is not a University organization, but is composed of Eugene business and professional men. It was organized in 1926 by a small group who en joyed singing together and, through several years of changing fortunes, with changes in conduct ors and personnel, the group has been built up to its present high character under the guidance of Evans. Fritz Hesse to Be Main Speaker at Club Meet The Congress club will hold a meeting tonight at 9 p. m. at the College Side Inn where Fritz Hesse, freshman in journalism, will speak on “Germany Today.” Hess maintains an intimate knowledge of the life in Germany through his friends, even though he lives in this country. He will speak from personal knowledge and letters received from Germany. Any man interested in debate or public affairs is welcome. Object of Search Authorities of Oregon, Washing ton, and California are engaged in a search for George G. Wittenmy er, treasurer of King county, Washington, charged with theft of $31,816.79 in funds entrusted to his care. He was seen in San Fran cisco. Junior President Selects Shearer Shine Chairman ■ - \ Shoe-Shining Shops on Campus Will Close for Day; to Donate Equipment Dick Shearer, junior in pre-med ics, was appointed chairman for Junior Shine day yesterday by George Birnie, president of the junior class. Shearer has been act ive on the campus, serving as chairman of the frosh picnic his first year, and working in other important activities. The committee for Shine day, which will be held the latter part of this month, will include an as sistant chairman, construction, publicity, and tickpt committee, all to be appointed soon by Shearer. Some campus shoe-shining shops have voluntarily decided to close their shops and donate their equip ment on that day. Three or four stands will be placed at strategic points on the campus. Birnie announced that extensive plans are under way for a success ful day. According to him, “Pros pects for a bigger and better Shine day are bright, because it has been rumored around the campus that numerous members of the junior class have served as ap prentices to professional shoe shiners during the summer months.’’ Sigma Delta Chi Will Meet Today A meeting of Sigma Delta Chi members and pledges will be held in the Journalism building at 4 this afternoon to discuss plans for initiation. Formal initiation of the five new pledges, Reuben Rada baugh, Art Derbyshire, Les Stan ley, Guy Shadduck, and Bill Aet zel, will be held Sunday, February 11, in Gerlinger hall. A ceremony in honor of Hal Hess, late secretary of state, will be conducted following the initia tion ceremony. Hoss was an as sociate member of Sigma Delta Chi. Breakfast will be held at the Anchorage immediately fol lowing. Lost: One Shoe, at Least Size 18, by Male CinderellaatBall By VELMA McINTYRE A male Cinderella, in a futile attempt to crash the Coed Capers, ^ lost his slipper, (at least size 18) as he madly dashed across the campus with the irate senior cops close at his heels. Rumors have it the scoundrel was a Theta Chi, but whoever it was, his slipper will not be returned without revealing his identity to Elizabeth Bend- j strup, chairman of the affair. The two lower classes carried off the honors, first prize for the best skit going to the sophomore class, and honorable mention to the freshman. A graveyard scene, in which ghosts of the famous Oregon dead came to life and lamented the state of the University 50 years from now, characterized the sophomore stunt. Tom Tongue rose from be neath his lofty tombstone and called his faithful colleagues, Micky Vail, Nancy Suomela, Jean > Failing, and Mike Mikulak to join Iin a lusty yell to revive again the good old spirits of Oregon. The freshman stunt brought back the remembrance of torturing hours endured while passing through the physical exam. It was a burlesque on that never-to-be forgotten day when students dash about Gerlinger from dawn till eve ning performing all sorts of fool ish tasks. The junior and senior skits were both song and dance num bers. Cecilia Worth and Margaret Veness, dressed in typical Spanish costumes, were awarded first prize for the best costumes. The swarthy senior, Cecilia, was scru tinized closely by the watchful eyes of the senior cops before she was admitted, for in her costume of a gay caballero her status as a member of the fairer sex was doubtful. Two wooden soldiers, Kay Breen and Barbara Beem, marched off with the second prize, which they guarded carefully with their two toy guns. Kept fresh in their cellophane wrappers, the judges silently ob (Continued on Page Two) Webfoots Hope To Climb From Cellar Position Vandals Will Play Here Friday, Saturday INVADERS FAVORED Idahoans Hold Third Position in Standings; Oregon Reserves Will Figure in Tilts By BILL EBERHART The Webfoots will try tomorrow night and Saturday to salvage something out of the wreckage of the week, when the Idaho Vandals invade Eugene for the first two game series with Oregon. For the first time in many years, Reinhart's team will meet the Vandals as the underdogs. Ida ho rests in any easy third place po sition, and the Ducks are lying in the cellar of the percentage col umn of th enorthern division. Vandals Ahead A look at the records reveals the fact that both teams have played eight games against the same opponents. The slight dif ference of one game in the past performances of Oregon and Ida ho puts the Vandals two notches ahead of the Webfoots. Rich Fox’s men took both games from Wash ington State, while the best Ore gon could do was split the Cougar series. Chances for a successful series at the expense of the Moscow vis itors are, nevertheless, much bet ter than they were prior to the Washington series. Although the facts and records offer no justifi cation, it is not too much to pre dict Oregon victories in both of the comin gtilts. The Webfoots are gathering impetus with every game, and the uncovering of some valuable reserve talent Tuesday night gives a big boost to the strength of the Oregon lineup. Sanford Shows Well Glen Sanford, sophomore, gave a particularly good account of him self in Tuesday's game and will probably see much more action against Idaho. Sanford was one of the mainstays of the frosh quintet last year, and before that was a member of the all-state team three years in a row. He played in the prep league as a Salem high lum inary. A first-string player of two years’ standing, a man the crowd has been hollering for all season, was finally given a break in the second Husky game, and he turned in a fine performance. We’re speaking of Jim Watts, the boy who, while laid up at the first of the season with a fractured cheek bone, had his position swiped by (Continued on Page Four) Morris Gives Opinion On Monetary System Dr. Victor P. Morris, professor of economics, gave his opinion on the present monetary system of the United States and its effect on the commerce of the nation and international trade, before ap proximately 100 persons, including members of the Cottage Grove chamber of commerce and its guests, Tuesday evening. “In any consideration of our monetary situation, it is first well to look at two common fallacies generally associated with money,” the speaker declared. "These fal lacies are the common mistake of identifying money with wealth, and confusing money and pur chasing power.” Dr. Morris believes- that the danger of wild inflation in this country is not yet over and that serious economic trouble may be caused by the administration’s “tinkering” with the monetary ‘system. Features Lined Up for Yeomen Dance Friday Mary Ann Alnutt and Wilma Stien, a pair of Eugene tap danc ers, will be featured along with Sam Seal and his accordian in a Valentine’s day informal to be held by the Oregon Yeomen Friday night. The dance will take place at the Craftsman club, which is undergo ing extensive decorating in hopes of obtaining a real Valentine at mosphere. The decoration commit tee is headed by George Teltoft. Tickets costing 35 cents are now on sale. The price at the door will also be 35 cents, contrary to pre vious reports. Candidate for Pivot Honors Howard Grenier, towering renter of the Idaho quintet, which will appear in the Igloo against Oregon tomorrow and Saturday evenings in a two-game series, is a serious contender for northern division con ference honors in the pivot position. He is the only two-year letter man center in the northwest section of the conference.

(Continued on Page Two) Student Group To Keep Watch On Traditions Court Gets Right to Deal With Offenders SIX COMPRISE BODY Neal Bush, Boh Hunter, Dick Near, Jean Failing, Helen Burns,. Cosgrove LaBarrc Selected A new and definite system of traditional enforcement on the campus was begun yesterday with the creation of a court of tradi tions. This judicial group, named by the student relations commit tee in its session yesterday after noon, will interpret campus tradi tions and will deal with offenders. The students comprising the court are Neal Bush, vice-presi dent of the student body; Bob Hunter, president of the Order of the O; Dick Near, senior man; Helen Burns, senior woman; Jean Failing, president of the Associat ed Women students; and Cosgrove LaBarre, president of Skull and Dagger. Court Given Powers The court, according to Tom Tongue, president of the associat ed students, will have the power "to summon offender, state the of fense, and reprimand the defend ant as it sees fit." No provision was made for physical punish ment. The action was taken by the stu dent relations group because of the uncertainty arising out of the re cent discussion on freshmen wear ing tuxedos and the ambiguities into which reference to campus traditions has fallen. Guide Formulated | As a guide to the newly formed I court, the student relations com mittee enumerated the traditions which will be maintained and en forced. They are; 1. The Oregon Seal at the north entrance of Villard hall must not be stepped on. 2. Every Oregon student will ■maintain the "hello" tradition while on the campus. 3.

Villard, who vs a son of Henry I Villard, financier and philanthro pist for whom Villard hall was named, and the grandson of Wil liam Lloyd Garrison, the Aboli tionist, has had a brilliant career as a newspaperman and a free thinker. Through his manage ment the Nation assumed great importance as an organ of current opinion, and for 21 years before taking over this magazine Villard was editorial writer and president of the New York Evening Post. He was born at Weisbaden, Germany, in 1872, and gained his education at Harvard, Washington and Lee universities, and at La fayette college, earning the de grees of bachelor of arts, doctor of literature, master of arts, and doctor of laws. During 1896-97 Villard served as reporter on the Philadelphia Press, before joining the New York Eve ning Post, where he remained un til 1918, at which time he sold the paper.

O. T. C. training here be placed on a voluntary basis. The faculty session was adjourned until this afternoon at 4 o’clock. The majority report of the com mittee favored retention of the present system of compulsory training, with some modifications. The minority report advocated ab olition of the compulsory feature. Howard Substitutes Although the meeting was closed to newspaper representa tives, it was reported unofficially that the minority report was pre pared by Dr. Waldo Schumacher, professor of political science, who was in Portland teaching an ex tension class at the time the meeting was held. It was read by Charles G. Howard, professor of law. It was believed that the ma jority report contained provisions for a committee to pass on stu dents who desired exemption from drill, the committee to be sep arated from the military depart ment. Meeting Cut Short Discussion of the two reports was cut short by lack of time, since the greater part of the time was consumed by other matters. The faculty approved three courses in religion, to be taught next year. These will be entitled "Origins of Religions,” “Great Re ligions of the Orient,” and “The Great Religions of Palestine and Arabia.” These will replace pres ent courses on religion and will be offered as heretofore through a non-major service department of religion in the college of social science. education Courses Approved Two new courses in education, entitled “Methods of Teaching (Continued on Payc Four) Executive Council to Meet This Afternoon The executive council meeting, which was to have been held yes terday, was postponed until 5 o'clock today on account of its conflict with the faculty meeting.

'Cradle Song’ To Be Offered In Guild Hall on February 24 The second production to be giv en at the Guild theater is a play which has been received with great interest in London as well as the United States. This is Martinez Sierra’s well known drama, “The ! Cradle Song," recently the vehicle for Dorothea YVieek in the motion picture of that name. The play, to be presented Feb ruary 24, takes place entirely with in the walls of a convent. Its sim ple story deals not with a particu lar heroine, but with a group of heroines. It is the life of the nuns as a group rather than the story of an individual which fills the author’s interest. Emphasis on one of the sisters, rather than the communi ty as a whole, was stressed by the moving picture in order to individ ualize the leading actress’ part. The University players will inter pret the play as originally con ceived by the author, Sister Jo anna of the Cross standing out in the group only because she is the one selected by the child as the nun which she looks upon as be ing most nearly her mother. The first American production of the “Cradle Song’’ was made in 1927 by Eva LeGalliene, who is ap pearing this week in Portland in two of her earlier plays. It became the public’s favorite among all the plays offered by the Civic Reper tory theater during that season. New York critics received it with delight because it differed so com pletely from the general run cff Broadway offerings with their murders, bootlegging, and eternal triangles. The following season Miss Le Gallienne sent her company on tour with great success. Soon af ter this presentation, a Spanish company produced the play in New York under the author’s own di rection. This also received cor dial comment from the critics. Be cause of its slight story many crit ics contended that “The Cradle Song’’ was not really a play in the strict sense of the word, but at the same time they agreed that it w'as one of the most perfect bits that had ever been brought to the stage. The University production will be given for one performance only, on the evening of February 24.
