art work, James W. Lane writes in
the Commonweal magazine: “He
exhibits chiefly scenes or icono
graphy of American Indian life and
is noted also for his having de
signed St. Mathew’s church in

his color glows!”

Women Debaters
Talk in South on
School Finances
Casteel Thinks Audiences in Large
Towns Favorable to Sales Tax;
But Villagers Opposed
"Audiences in southern Oregon
are favorable to the sales tax, but
to most of them the idea of saving
school money through educational
reorganization is a new one,” said
Prof. John- L. Casteel, head of the
speech department, upon his return
from a tour made last week by the
women’s debate team.
The speech professor based his
opinion upon his analysis of audi
ence reaction in the larger towns
visited by the women’s squad, and
contrasted the feeling in such cen
ters as Ashland and Medford to
that encountered by the men’s de
bate team in the smaller towns
where audiences were either “op
posed or suspicious of the sales
tax,” probably, Castel thinks, be
cause of the opinion of the state
grange upon the matter.
The women’s team spoke Sunday
evening before the forum of the
Congregational church of Ashland
on the subject of educational reor
ganization. The talk was followed
by an animated discussion. Mon
day morning they appeared at a
school assembly at Medford high
school, Monday afternoon at an as
sembly at Ashland high school
Monday night before a meeting of
the public and of Ashland school
teachers, and Tuesday morning at

He 'Professes’ Business; but
Could He Run a Hash House
W. P. Riddlesbarger, assistant
professor of business administra
tion, will take over the manage
ment of the Anchorage next term
—at least that is the belief of Beth
Beal and Ruth Chilcote, secretar
ies of the school of business admin
Thursday afternoon Riddlesbar
ger had the two secretaries pre
pare a lengthy contract stipulating
just what wages should be paid
and how the property was to be
managed. After they had typed
through thirteen or fourteen claus
es involving financial terms, the
girls became genuinely worried
over the prospect of losing one of
their beloved professors.
When the time came to affix
their signatures to the fateful doc
ument, the two faithful secretaries
could hardly repress their tears.
“It seems a shame,” stated Miss
Chilcote “to do this after all your
years of study ”
“Oh,” grinned Riddlesbarger,
who had neglected to tell them
that it was only a class project but
let it go at that, “they just don't
pay me enough here.”
The joke has since been found
out, but Riddlesbarger has not as
yet been forgiven.
"It wouldn't have been so bad,”
mourned Miss Chilcote, “if he
hadn't come around the next morn
ing and offered me a job as a wait
i ress.”

Students on Committee to Greet
Nationally-Known Visitor
• On Arrival Here
When Oswald Garrison Villard,
editor of the Nation, nationally
known writer and liberal, comes to
the University campus Monday for
a two-day stay, he will be warmly
greeted by students and faculty,
who not only know him for the
work he has done, but as the son
of Henry Villard, railroad builder
and benefactor of the University
when it was a struggling institu
tion back in 188.1.
Friends of Villard here have
pointed out that the journalist is
not given to pomp and show, so
the reception will in no way be of
a “brass band” affair, but will
make up in warmth and hospital
ity for what might be seized upon
as an occasion for a more elabor
ate greeting.
Dinner Scheduled
Upon arrival Villard will be met
at the train by a group of students
headed by Richard S. Near, Eu
gene, law student and senior man
on the executive council. Monday
evening a dinner, limited to 100!
students and a few faculty mem
bers, will be given in John Straub
Memorial hall. At this time
Wayne L. Morse, dean of the
school of law, himself a nationally
known liberal and formerly an as
sociate of the LaFollettes in Wis
consin, will welcome the visitor on
behalf of the faculty.
Richard Neuberger, editor of the
Emerald last year and the young
est contributor to Villard’s Nation,
will introduce the honor guest, who
will then talk informally. Wallace
J. Campbell, graduate assistant in
sociology, will be toastmaster, and
Stephen B. Kahn, Portland, is
chairman of arrangements.
Assembly Tuesday
Tuesday morning Villard will
meet with advanced journalism stu
dents for a discussion on modern
improvements in, the profession,
and on present world problems.
While Mr. Villard will talk, much
of the hour is expected to be de
voted to a round table discussion.
At 10 o’clock 'he will address in

Skullduggery Brings Pathos;
So Crowds Hiss Sir Francis
A hero pure as the falling snow,
a villain black as the ace of spades,
a beautiful heroine persecuted and
misled, and drama that will make;

Lynne," the five act melodrama
being presented this week at the
Very Little theater. Tonight’s
performance is tha last to be pre
All the elements that go to
make up good, heartrending melo
drama are ingredients in this story
of the charming Lady Isabel Vane'
who, suffering the fierce pangs of
jealousy, flees from the protecting
arms of her innocent husband into
those of the scheming, debasing
Sir Francis Levison, leaving behind
her a heartbroken husband, two
children of a tender age, and a
beautiful home.
She encounters the cruelties of
the world and the disillusionment
of discovering that Sir Francis is
a vile, murderous rogue. Broken
in body and in spirit, she returns
to East Lynne, where she had come
first as a happy bride, now seek
ing employment as a nurse to her
own children. She is torn between
the desire to see her offspring and
husband, and the knowledge that
she will have to live in the very
house with Barbara Hare, the
“other woman,” who has usurped
her place as wife and mother. The
climax comes when her son, little
William, dies, and she, his own
mother, cannot reveal to him that
she is his parent until it is too
The fact that she must stand
aside while her husband mingles
his grief with the shallow tears of
Barbara Hare almost kills her.
Soon after, she is stricken ill, and
on her death bed summons Archi

pentance, she begs him to forgive

Smite Orangemen
By Score of 33-25
Ducks Hold 18-6 Lead at End of Half in
Game at Igloo; Willie Jones Leads
Scorers With 13
The University of Oregon Wcbfoots continued their trip on the
comeback trail Iasi night and rolled into second place of the northern
division as they won handily from the Beavers, 33 to 25. The Orange
men thus drop out of their tie with the Ducks and take the third posi
tion, with a chance tonight for a final tie with Oregon.
Not the close, smashing, spectacular battle that has characterized
the meetings of these two teams in the past, last night’s tilt never
theless showed Oregon at her best, for whom the Beavers were no
match. Webfoot fans were enthusiastic about the result of the con
test but were a bit disappointed at the lack of color.
Oregon drew first blood and continued all through the game to
be the aggressor. From the time the score was tied at 2-a,ll after a
minute of play, Oregon State was constantly on the short end of the

failed to overtake Oregon’s tre
mendous lead, mostly gained in
the first half, which ended 18 to
6 for the Webfoots.
Oregon State started the game
minus the services of two veteran
first-stringers. Skeet O'Connell,
Beaver captain and forward, was
held out at the start on account
of a wrenched ankle, but was
rushed into the fray by Coach
Slats Gill in the closing minutes

played regularly this season and
I last, was confined to the bench
during the entire game for some
unaccountable reason.
Contest Clean
The game was clean compared
to games between the two Oregon
teams in the past, and Referee
Jimmie Mitchell and Umpire
Dwight Adams were lenient, only
calling 16 fouls, 10 on Oregon and
6 on Oregon State.
The Webfoots played the best
ball witnessed here this season as
they pierced the Orange defense
during the first half almost at
will. After only eight minutes
had gone, the Ducks held a 10-to-3
advantage, and increased their
lead to 18 to 4 in six more min
Both teams slowed down very
noticeably from then until the

'Twas a Worthless Old Tree,
Fit for Naught but Fire wood
‘‘Oh, woodsmen,” quoted senti
mental passersby, “spare that
If the choppers ceased their
chopping, it was to pick up a saw
instead, and now the old cherry
tree that graced the president’s
lawn for more years than anyone
on the campus seems to remember,
is no more.
It had become, said D. L. Lewis,
superintendent of buildings and
grounds, a nuisance. “Its blos
soms,” he admitted, "were pretty,
but the fruit was worthless. Last
year we could not even give the
cherries away. Instead, they be
came fully ripe and dropped onto
the sidewalk, where they were a
slippery mess, unsightly and dan
gerous to pedestrians.”
Asked if the wood could not be
used to build furniture, possibly
| for the president's house, Lewis
replied that to season it properly
would be more trouble than the
wood was worth—it grew too fast
in Oregon to be as hard and fine
grained as cherry wood should be.
It was given, he said, to a neigh
boring householder for fuel.
When a log burns in a firepqlace,
there are those who see in its danc
ing flames the sunlight of other
years, imprisoned through sunny
hours, and released at last to
mount heavenward, from whence
it came. Perhaps the householder
who burns it will be a sentimental
ist, and will see, too, in the fire
light, a vision of the old tree grow
ing again at the gates of Valhalla,
I to please with more fragrant
blooms and sweeter fruit than it
bore on earth, the warriors who,
like itself, have found peace and
sanctuary there.
