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 (Continued on Page Two) 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 istration. 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.” Assembly Talk, Banquet Slated ForO.G.Villard Public Meet in Gerlinger Tuesday at 10 DINNER ON MONDAY 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.

Skullduggery Brings Pathos; So Crowds Hiss Sir Francis By MARIAN JOHNSON 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; you weep copiously—such is "East| Lynne," the five act melodrama being presented this week at the Very Little theater. Tonight’s performance is tha last to be pre sented. 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 late. 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 bald to her. In words of true re pentance, she begs him to forgive (Continued on Page Three) Emerald-of-Air Offers Contest During Spring Living Organizations to Compete for Prizes ENTRIES MADE NOW Merchants Make Contributions to Support rtf Rivalry to Start April 10 A radio contest among the living organizations is scheduled for spring term.

Oregon Hoopsters 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 By BILL EBERHART 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 Members Named On Group to Give ROTC Exemption Spencer, Schumacher, Stillman, (Jrumbuker, Clark, Barker, Calavan Included Personnel of the Committee on Military Education, which was es tablished at the faculty meeting last month to grant student ex emptions from R. O. T. C. work on the campus, was announced yes terday. The group consists of seven members, including five selected by President C. V. Boyer, one named by A. S. U. O. President Tom Tongue, and the professor of military science and tactics. Boyer’s five choices were Carl ton E. Spencer, professor of law; Waldo Schumacher, professor of political science; A. B. Stillman, assistant professor of business ad ministration; Calvin Crumbaker, professor of economics; and Dan E. Clark, professor of history. Tongue appointed Corwin Cala van, second-year law student, to the committee. The seventh mem ber of the group is F. A. Barker, professor of military science and tactics.

Fourteen textbooks are included in the collection at the depot. ►cij|unt. A rally in the second half 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 | of the first period. Carl Lench i itsky, husky gua»d, who has 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 utes. Both teams slowed down very noticeably from then until the rest period. Two conversions by lO’Cpnnell were the only scoring to [ interrupt the otherwise uneventful floor play.

'Twas a Worthless Old Tree, Fit for Naught but Fire wood ‘‘Oh, woodsmen,” quoted senti mental passersby, “spare that tree.” 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.
