same policy as that of previous
years, retaining the same faculty

Strange Screams
Prove to Be Only
MorerStage Stuff9
Strange sounds reverberate
through the central campus area
these nights. But do not be
alarmed. They are the cries of
Katharine the Shrew (Virginia
Wappenstein) as Petruchio, her
tamer (Bill Schloth) throws her
over his shoulder and carries her
off, kicking and screaming. The
three Deaths hovering against the
unlighted background are barely
visible. Bianca (Althea Peterson}
and Lucentio (Bob Cathay) going
through their love scene, dressed
in long flowing capes, and seated
on a garden bench, give all the
effects of the famous coupies,
Paolo and Francesca, or Pelleas
and Mellisande.
Monday night, the cast went in
to rehearsal on the stage of the
outdoor theater which will "house”
the performance next week, Fri
day and Saturday, May 25 and 26,
with only two dim lights to make
the actors visible to the director.
A high wind was blowing and sev
eral of the main characters
wrapped in long black velvet
cloaks, borrowed for wind breaks
from the drama department, gave
an odd effect, not unlike scenes
from "Death Takes a Holiday.”
But all this will change with the
gay lights and vivid costumes of
the Elizabethan period, to be worn
when the production is ready for
an audience. The eery shadows
and -mysterious background will
give place to color and warmth,
and boisterous laughter, and to the
humor that is characteristic of
Shakespeare’s comedies.
Professor Dunn Tells About
Efforts Made to Change Grind
Few of the present Faculty are
familiar with the heroic efforts of
their predecessors to bring an oc
casional break into the schedule
of Professorial duties. The inertia
that has characterized us in this
respect, except among the women
of the Faculty, is rather dicredit
ing. There have, however, been
intermittent periods when self
appointed committees, or chair
men having authority from the
now defunct Colloquium, took
charge of monthly dinners and so
cials, and one abortive commis
sion even attempted to form a
Faculty Dance Club, called the
Oregonia. The last chairman per
suaded the orchestra to donate its
The little Old Gymnasium that
stood between McClure Hall and
the Art Building until destroyed
by fire, provided our social H.D.Q.,
and here we would play all sorts
of childish games, including an
old fashioned ‘spelling bee.’ We
each brought a lunch or covered
dish with which to start the eve
ning's glee.
One year, we were having
monthly dinners, more or less for
mal, usually at the Osburn, the
programs of which varied consid
erably. I seem not to recall that
there was any very great effort
to obtrude ‘shop.’ They were just
pleasant ‘get togethers.’ I was at
one dime a little precocious in
arising to promote a Faculty Club
Room, where, among other advan
tages, ‘I might learn how to
smoke.’ I thought I had been
making a fairly good impression,
but, at this juncture, Mrs. Dunn
pulled me down by the coat tails
and I was quashed amid a storm
of joking sallies. By that one
yank, my smokes were delayed
fifteen years and the Faculty Club
around twenty-five.
It was at one of these dinners
in the Osburn Tea Room that the
younger members both edified and
scandalized us with the mock ses
sion of the Faculty which I was
detailing to you when Timmy in
butted with his motion to adjourn.
So, to resume in adjourned ses
sion, as it were,—some one moved
to amend the original motion by
substituting ‘that the flag be
flown from the staff by Villard
Hall, in order that the University

Law School Will
Celebrate Annual
Homecoming Day
Baseball Game Between Business
And I^egal Group Is Feature
For Friday Afternoon
With a tumult among members
of the law school student body,
equalled only by the wild signs
and notices on the bulletin board,
the law school is preparing for its
“homecoming celebration” next
Friday, according to Art Clarke,
First on the program comes
election of student body officers
Friday morning, followed by in
stallation—into the millrace. Last
year’s officers are in charge of in
The big feature of the afternoon
is the annual baseball game be
tween the law and business ad
schools. The law school has issued
a challenge to the business ad
school, formally made out, with a
copy filed in the county clerk’s of
fice, and the challenge signed with
the evidently official seal-—a pic
ture of a fish.
The challenge reads, in part:
“Whereas it has been called to our
attention that the members of
your unparticular and degenerate
student body, concerning an un
justified victory, won by your
school in the year 1933, have con
stantly, continuously, and con
foundedly, bragged, blown, bally
hooed, and blabbered as regards
the athletic prowess of your noto
rious members . . .
“Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved:
that we, the said Law School Stu
dent Body do hereby challenge
and summon you to assemble your
scrawny, puny, imbecilic, and an
aemic athletes to do battle with
the said Law School in a game of
softball upon' the field adjoining,
abutting, and adjacent to Hay
ward Field, on the eighteenth day
of May in the Year of our Lord
nineteen hundred and thirty-four,
there to be humiliated, chastised,
and again place in your proper
position subservient to the worthy
members of the said School of Law,
or in lieu thereof, anticipating
your inevitable defeat, ignobly de
cline the challenge and cease once
and forever your loud mouthed and
slanderous statements concerning
the said Law School of the Uni
versity of Oregon.”
Advertisers Will
Hold Convention
The annual advertising conclave
under the joint auspices of Gamma
Alpha Chi, women’s professional
advertising fraternity, and Alpha
Delta Sigma, men’s professional
advertising fraternity, will be held
in Eugene Saturday and Sunday,
May 26 and 27.
Several unusual events have been
planned for the conclave. A direc
tory will be published containing
the names and occupations of all
members of Alpha Delta Sigma.
The purpose of the publication is
to find out how many members
are engaged in advertising or in
some closely related activity. Nine
ty-nine questionnaires were sent
out, and from the preliminary ex
amination of the cards returned,
it is shown a large proportion of
members have been or are engaged
in the advertising field.
A joint banquet will be held Sat
urday evening, May 26, and a
breakfast for Alpha Delta Sigma
members only, Sunday morning,
May 27.
A large number of alumni are
expected to return for the conclave
as Alpha Delta Sigma is celebrat
ing the tenth anniversary of the
granting of its charter.

Loan for New
Library Now
Looks Hopeful
Oregon’s Application for
Funds Examined
Money to Bp Apportioned When
Legislature Appropriates
I’W'A Request
Hope for a new library on the
campus within the near future
was given impetus yesterday by
the announcement from Washing
ton of the approval by PWA ex
amining divisions of the $350,000
“Examination of the University
of Oregon's application for library
completed," reads a telegram re
ceived from Congressman James
Mott Tuesday. “Found eligible
for loan and grant, project will bo
approved as soon as money is
available in new PWA bill.”
$35,000,000 Set Aside
The new bill referred to is Pre3
ident Roosevelt’s $1,322,000,000
appropriation request which was
placed before congress yesterday.
Ear-marked for public buildings
construction in the bill is $35,000,
000, under which heading would
come the proposed library.
As soon as the legislative body
appropriates funds for PWA proj
ects, money for the library will be
apportioned and preparation of
contracts will get under way.
Since the government grants di
rectly only 30 percent of th& total
cost of the building, the remainder
of the construction outlay would
be in the form of a loan.
Most Hopeful Stage
“It seems to me we have
reached the most hopeful stage in
our library planning yet,” stated
President C. V. Boyer lsat night.
“The matter does not rest any
longer on our having to demon
strate it as a good project as it
now has the necessary, background
of PWA approval. We were in
doubt for a while as to whether
they would recognize our ability
to pay the loan.”

annual publication of Sigma Delta
Chi, men’s professional journalism
fraternity, will be published May
29, it was decided at the meeting

ism, former president of the chap

Interpretive Artistry Shown
By Charles Fahey in Recital
Charles Fahey, tenor, who sang
on the student program last night
is the second vocal student to ap
pear recently to show unusual in
terpretive artistry. A former re
citalist was proficient at establish
ing a mood. Fahey established a
He puts an intensity into his
singing which eliminates the ne
cessity for the listener to expend
energy in an effort to catch a
shred of musical feeling. His mu
sic comes from inside. He sings
because he likes to sing.
Such is the tradition behind all
sincere musical ability.
The third number in each of
Fahey’s two groups were the eas
iest for us to “catch” since they
were in English, although it isn’t
to be assumed that foreign lan
guage numbers were not effective.
The fact that the listeners were in
clined to hum the melody of Tosti’s
“Serenata” proves this fact.
It is just that the thought was
more obvious when presented in
These two numbers were Cad
man's “Dream Tryst," and “O Ask
of the Stars” by La Forge.
Kathryn Orme, piano student of
George Hopkins, also appeared on
the program. She played part of
a Beethoven Sonata, Chopin’s Noc
turne in B major and Ballade in
F major, a Viennese Dance by
Friedman, Barcarolle by Ruben
stein, and an Arabesque by Les
There was a bit of uncertain
about her playing, due probably to
nervousness. The quieter passages
of the Chopin numbers she execut
ed in fine expressive style.
