Tongue, the group determined its
general policy and outlined a plan
for the coming year's activity in
Johnson hall yesterday.
The purpose of the organization
is to point out the advantages of

natural theater between the University library and Deady hall.
Green Goose to Be Financed
By Government Commission
The Green Goose, to be pub
lished by Sigma Delta Chi, Tues
day, May 29, is deriving a large
part of its revenue from a com
mission paid by the Bolognian
government because thousands of
letters will be sent by students
who will be unmercifully slandered
in the scandal sheet.
Anyone seriously desiring to
curb the activities of the writers
of the Goose might try bribing
by placing a 10-gallon keg of
coca-cola, in the alley behind the
journalism shack. This method is
not guaranteed to bring results
but it might help.
Gosling staff members have
been spending the entire week in
the employ of various garbage
collecting concerns in Eugene to
get the correct atmosphere for the
writing of the paper. Their motto
is: "There may be flies on us, but
there will be NO flies on the
Green Goose.”
On Sunday, the crew will load
their typewriters, a clean shirt
each, a bathtub, and a picnic lunch
aboard the nearest freight train
and depart to peaceful climes to
print their masterpiece.
Due to the tense atmosphere
and belligerent attitude of local
people, it would be inadvisable to
try the actual work in Eugene.
Wouldn't you work less efficiently
if you were expecting a bomb to
be thrown into your shop, or the
populace to drag you out in the
streets to be torn to pieces by an
enraged mob?
Bright and early Tuesday morn
Riotous Torchlight Parades
Illuminate 1884 Campaigns
That reminds me.
In the next following' Presiden
tial campaign of 1884, University
students were very much awake to
the determined efforts of the Dem
ocratic Party to overthrow the Re
publican dynasty. We Sub-Fresh
men were dinned, not only with
mere echoes of a far away con
flict, but with first-hand experienc
es in the campaign of "the Plumed
Knight’, weltering in ‘Rum, Rome,
and Rebellion,’ and ‘the Mulligan
Students were live participants
in the local canvas, to the extent
that the Republican committeemen
devoted an evening in Rhinehart's
hall to a collegiate program. A
group of six or seven upper class
men addressed a mass meeting of
citizens. I can .not recall the oth
ers, for I was soon lost in the
abtruseness of partisan argumen
tation and not at all impressed by
the oratorical gesticulation which
some displayed, but Darwin Bris
tow’s speech interested me greatly,
because it was brief and modest.
Those were the days of the
famed torchlight processions, when
I thousands upon thousands of dol
lars were expended in furnishing
regalia to the party adherents,—
white oil-cloth caps and capes in
this instance, and swinging kero
sene burners on poles, popularly
termed torches. Eugene had nev
er known such a festive, riotous
time, not even in the old wide-open
Fourth of July celebrations when
greased pigs, let loose in the
throng, did not make as much com
motion as rarin’, roarin', drunk.
I believe the Republicans were
not ‘processionists’ at this time,
but oh! how the Democrats scin
tillated. I have reason to remem
ber it, for a juvenile wise-crack of
mine brought a reeling torch-man
down upon me with vengeful pro
fanity. A fellow marcher, equally
| as un-sober, pulled him away with
the remark. ‘Must be gentleman,
Tom, even if brat isn't’. And an
other reeled past yelling, 'So goes
Cottage Grove, so goes the world’.
At the head of the flaming spec
tacular march was a drum and
fife corps, and the fifer was none
other than the eldest son of our
own President Johnson. Back in

Those included in the green col
umns will not be seen. They will
be at home all day, ashamed to
show their faces. Meanwhile, the
fortunate students who were left
out will be jubilantly parading

Athletic Committee’s Act Giving
Varsity Blankets to Swimmers
Gains Approval
The executive council of the A.
S. U. O. was called to order for
the first time under the new ad
ministration by Joe R»nner, new
ly elected president, yesterday af
Action of the athletic committee
in providing that varsity blankets,
regularly given to three-year let
termen, be given to swimmers this
year was approved.
The request by Max Calandra,
varsity swimmer, for a refund of
his student body fee of $5 was re
ferred to the judiciary committee
with the suggestion that the re
quest be granted.
He paid the fee three days be
fore the action taken by the asso
ciated students in general session
providing that swimmers be given
varsity awards without being re
quired to pay this term's student
body fee.
An opinion by the judiciary com
mittee on the following two issues
requested, by the finance commit
tee, was received by the council:
“1. Does the executive council
have power to refuse or grant re
funds of the associated students’
fee on petition of students who
have paid the fee ?
z. uoes the executive council
have authority to refuse to accept
payment of the A.S.U.O. fee ten
dered by a registered student?”
The opinions submitted were:
“1. In answer to the first ques
tion enumerated above, it is the
opinion of the judiciary committee
that the executive council has no
power to grant l'efunds of the as
sociated students’ fees on petitions
of students who have paid such fee.
Student fees voluntarily paid to
the A. S. U. O. become the proper
ty of the A.S.U.O. and are to be
administered and spent for carry
ing out the purposes of the stu
dent organization; namely, the
payment for services rendered or
for the purchase of equipment.
Students have at this time had the
opportunity to enjoy the privileges
to which they are entitled by the
payment of such fees. It is not
the fault of the A.S.U.O. if they
have not availed themselves of this
opportunity. The executive council

The four students selected to

chosen are not able to attend the

second year law; (2) William Hall,
sophomore in social science; (3)
Edgar Goodnough, graduate stu

“The committee is informed by
the representatives of the confer

of the number of delegates from
the University of Oregon being
increased,” said Onthank. “If the
number should be enlarged, or any
of those selected as delegates
should be unable actually to go,
the alternates will take then
places in the order named.”
Observers May Go
Attention was called by the
committee to the fact that alter
nates and others qualified may at
tend the conference as observers.
As such they may participate in
discussions, travel and, general ac
tivities of delegates, but at their
own expense. The difference in
the probable expense between that
of delegates and that of observers
has been estimated at $65.
“It is hoped that some of those
who did not win a place as dele
gates may go as observers and so
secure the benefit of the confer
ence,” said Dean Onthank.
Besides Onthank, members of
the selection committee were Har

Oregon Grad to Broadway
"Wally, chap who played waiter
in ‘Man of Wax’.”
With this terse, enigmatic tele
gram from Lee Schubert, Walter
Boyle, former drama student at
the University who is now visiting
on the campus, received his oppor
tunity to play on Broadway, the
goal of all thespians.
Schubert, producer of many of
the theater’s greatest successes,
wanted Boyle to act for him but
did not know the name of the
comic waiter, which explains the
message sent to the Pasadena
Community Playhouse, where
Boyle was playing. The next train
east carried “the waiter” to New
York and a place among the glit

"I feel I am well started now
towards the realization of my am
bition to become a director of
legitimate drama,” said Boyle last
night, seated comfortably in the
living-room at Sigma Alpha Ep
silon fraternity, where he is stay
ing during his two-day visit on
the campus.
Although needing but a few
hours for graduation when a
chance was offered him to act* for
the Pasadena playhouse in the
winter of 1932, Boyle accepted
without hesitation. “Opportunities
in the theater are not so prolific
that they can be disregarded
easily,’’ he explained.
Many noted screen and stage
stars have been groomed at Pasa
dena’s famous playhouse, includ
ing Douglass Montgomery, Robert
Young, Gloria Stuart and Irving
Pitchel. In the plays which are
produced once each week there,
Boyle found many fine roles and
succeeded so well in portraying
them that Schubert noticed the
young actor and called him east.
On Broadway Walter Boyle has
worked as stage manager with
Lenore Ulric, Pola Negri and Guy
Bates Post, all famous players
from whom the ex-Oregon student
learned many fine points of char
After “The Shattered Lamp,” a
