Good Work Given
By Students Last
Night in Concert
Students are presented in re
cital in order that they might
have experience similar to that of
a professional appearance. They
may, and are expected to profit
from their errors.
Madalena Guistina, violin stu
dent of Rex Underwood, who was
presented on last night's progtarri,
shows unusual promise. There are
certain technical lackings about
her playing arising from inexpe
rience which will be ironed out
with continued public appearance
and study. These technical lack
ings have nothing to do with her
native musical understanding,
which we consider of a high order.
And we reiterate that musical un
derstanding is of greater impor
tance than technical perfection,
since the former may produce mu
sic with little of the latter, but
the reverse is impossible, from an
artistic standpoint.
We will mention these technical
lackings. And while the undiscern
ing will believe that we’ve said
Miss Guistina is impossible as a
violinist, we refer them to the
above statement, which we meant,
that she shows unusual promise.
First of all, her tremulo seems
just a trifle broad, giving a hint
of a trill, rather than a single
Secondly, there was a certain
coarseness about her tone on oc
casion as though she were press
ing her bow too hard or there
were too much resin on «it.
Thirdly, at times she produced
an extended full-bow note which
began slowly, sped in the middle,
and slowed at the end. This, cou
pled with the broad tremulo, gives
music a certain mushiness which
cannot be identified with what is
accepted as musical emotion, ex
cept by crooners.
Miss Guistina played a Sonata
in D major by Nardini, “Slavonic

In Spite of Spring Weather
Student Dispensary Is Busy
Perfect weather at the begin
ning of the term may have made a
great deal of difference with the
growth of flowers and gardens, but
it made very little difference with
student health. Statistics taken
from the University health service
reveal that calls made last year
during the month of April are ap
proximately the same for the
month of April this year.
The statistics show 2081 calls
made during April of this year,
which is a slight gain over April
of last year, with a total of 2058.
And old man bad health during
April of this year won the booby
prize over April of last year in the
race for the number of cases treat
ed, this year being 805, against
last year's 784.
Common colds, the menace of
health, and a consistent record
leader, again leads the race with
the highest number of cases, but
last year’s group had a slight edge
over htis year's, the amount bejng
167 to 158.
Perhaps you have wondered what
most of the treatments were for,
so a total of the major items is
given here for April, 1934.
Skin diseases were high, their
causes ranging from poison oak,
blisters, floor burns, to minor in
fections. Treatments of this sort
brought 204 visits.
Acute respiration system treat
ments, exclusive of colds accounted
for 178 calls.
Chest and bone X-ray pictures
totaled 147.
Strenuous exercise of non-condi
tioned would-be athletes, caused
127 bone, muscle and joint injur
ies. Seven broken bones were
Laboratory determinations were
made of 367 patients. Thirty sen
iors were given physical examina
There are 388 seniors registered
at the University, each one being
offered an opportunity to take a
free physical examination. Only
about 13 percent have responded.

Pleases Mothers, Students
Junior Weekend ushered in the
seventh annual Mother’s Day cel
ebration on the University campus
May 11, 12 and 13 and was voted
by mothers and students'alike the
most successful ever held in the
history of the organization. Not
only wore mothers entertained at
a great variety of events, but the
visitors themselves showed great
interest in v/hat is going on at
the University. All events were
highly successful, due, mothers
declared, to the efficient work of
the student committees.
The Canoe Fete, directed by
George Schenk, and the Mother .;
Day banquet, Althea Petersen,
chairman, were outstanding events
of the weekend celebration. A
near record crowd of 800 attended
the banquet.

Friday morning, when mothers
were honor guests at the annual
installation ceremony for new stu
dent body officers.

Boyer Makes
Theme ‘Future
Of University’
Better Spirit of Faculty
And Students Noted
Immediate Selection of Chancellor
Necessary, Says Thompson,
President of Duds
Oregon has reached the turning
point and is now pointing- definitely
iy toward better times and greater
achievements, said President C. V.
Boyer in his address before 800
mothers and their sons and daugh
ters at the seventh annual Moth
er's Day banquet held in John
Straub Memorial hall Saturday
Taking as his theme “The Future
of the University,” Dr. Boyer said
that a better spirit of cooperation
and confidence is noted among the
students and the faculty and staff
members. He stressed the fact that
people are beginning to realize that
higher education is a means toward
a richer life rather than merely a
richer “living.” In the coming era
of more leisure higher education
has a great opportunity to be of
service to men and women.
“The University strives to de
velop character along with the ex
panding mind,” said Dr. Boyer.
"We feel it is our duty and privi
lege to build a superstructure of
character and realization of ideals
on the foundation which the moth
ers have made in the minds and
hearts of their children.”

Women’s Division
Of PE Tries New
Examination Plan
Comprehensive System Allows
Student Test Covering
Two Years’ Work
A new system of comprehensive
examinations for seniors, which
has already developed a marked
change in the attitude of both
students and faculty members, has
been installed in the women’s di
vision of the school of physical
education, announced Miss Flor
ence Alden, professor and head of
this division, today..
The new system does away en
tirely with the usual formal type
of examinations in each subject,
and students are given one test
that completely covers not only
their physical education courses
during the last two years, but
much of their other work as well.
The examinations have proved
to be a genuine “inventory” of
what the student has learned that
will be of practical value, and fur
ther, gives the prospective worker
in physical education a definite
idea of what conditions and prob
lems will be met after graduation.
The test is built largely around
the idea of “what would you do
under such and such conditions,"
instead of merely asking the stu
dent to repeat what she has read
or has been told, states Miss Al
Since the examination takes the
place of all regular subject exam
inations, it has become necessary

Challenge to flow
Remains Untakeh
Last night the freshmen of
Kappa Sigma fraternity issued a
challenge to any freshman living
group on the campus to a row
boat race at the frosh picnic to
be held near Goshen at Swim
mer’s Delight, next Sunday after
noon. Some of the Kappa Sigma
boy£ in commenting on the prow
ess of the Kappa Sigma boys said,
“Guess we’ll have to go up and
race Washington to get any com
petition. After we beat them by
three lengths there won’t be any
one brave enough to challenge U3
on the campus and then we’ll clean
up the winnings.”
Others don’t seem to have the
confidence in the Kappa Sigma
boys that the Kappa Sigma boys
do. Fred Hammond’s dollar bel
on his brothers was quickly taken
by a bystander. ’’Well, there my
money goes,” sighed Hammond.
The challengers say they will
row a one or two-man team and
add that it doesn’t matter as they
will win anyhow.
Dave Lowry, general chairman
for the affair, was rather cha
grined that no one would accept
the challenge and has issued a call
for husky oarsmen from the dif
ferent houses on the campus. "If
the river were wider we would
make it a mixed race,” said
Lowry, “but there isn't room for
boats to go around in big circles!”

'Oregon Trail9 Theme Takes
First in Annual Canoe Fete
Ten floats, each depicting a
salient event in the history of
Oregon, passed slowly and grace
fully before the bleachers on the
millrace Saturday, May 12, where
several hundred guest mothers and
students were assembled for the
annual Canoe Fete, climax of Jun
ior Weekend, this year entitled
"Where Rolls the Oregon.”
Sigma Kappa and Phi Sigma
Kappa were awarded first place
by their float, “The Oregon Trail,”
an artistically arranged group
showing a covered wagon in which
a mother and child watched a
fight between the father and In
dians. Second place went to Phi
Mu and Pi Kappa Alpha, “Captain
Robert Grey’s Good Ship Colum
bia,” a small sail boat fitted out
in every detail including men.
Third place went to Zeta Tau
Alpha and Phi Kappa Psi, “The'
Eruption of Mt. Mazama.”
Ralph Schomp, junior in art,
acted as master of ceremonies. He
assisted Queen Josephine from her
barge to the throne situated at
the left of Sherwood Burr’s or
chestra. Here she and her four
attendants, Margaret Ann How
land, Cynthia Liljeqvist, Miriam
Henderson, and Marytine New,
presided over the pageant.
Several guests remarked about
the excellent timing of the floats
this year which appeared through
the curtain, decorated as a log
blockhouse, just as Schomp fin
ished the story of the development
of Oregon which introduced each
float, with “Look, oh queen.”
Comedy relief of the dramatic
program was unconsciously pro
duced by those on the stage when
they forgot that the public ad
dress system amplified every
whisper. Several unwitting and
amusing remarks were broadcast
to the bleachers.
Don Eva, tenor, and George
Bishop, baritone, were well re
ceived by their interpretation of
old songs. "Land of the Empire
Builders” was used as the theme
song of the event.
