Second Division Band Gives
Pleasing Concert on Sunday
The University of Oregon band,
second division, under direction of
John H. Stehn, band conductor,
gave a concert in the Music build
ing Sunday, January 6, at 3:00
p. m.
The concert was well attended,
the crowd being , estimated at
about 400 people, mostly from Eu
gene. The campus representation
was poor.
Featured musicians on the pro
gram were: Richard Mears and
Ellsworth Huffman in a trumpet
duet: and Ronald Drew, Robert
Collins, and Ralph Peyton in a
clarinet trio. “The Mermaids” by
Pinsuti, a composition especially
arranged for trumpet rendition,
was well executed. Eoth musicians
showed marked technical ability
and have a mastery of tone quality
which is excellent. “Merriment j
Polka" by Barnard, is a number;
reminiscent of music halls and
grind organs, but which takes care
ful teamwork and a mastery of
the clarinet to play successfully. '
Both numbers were well received
by the audience.
Other selections on the program
were: ‘‘La Pere de la Victoire
March” by Ganne; "Don Cezar de
Bazan Overture” by Massanet'
“Toujours ou Jamais Waltzes” by
Waldteufel; the always popular se
lections from “Mademoiselle Mo
diste” by the famous composer,
Victor Herbert; the very well
known and often-played “Orpheus
Overture” by Offenbach and as a
smashing finale to the program,
the “Chicago .Tribune March” by
The 40-piece band put on a very
creditable performance consider
ing the fact that the second divi
sion is made of mostly of inexpe
rienced musicians with only a few
seasoned players in the group.
Whatever the band may have
lacked in technique and those fine
shadings of musical expression
which come only with years of ex
perience, was amply made up for
in the enthusiasm with which they
went at their work.
Smiles With Life at Stake
The shadow of a smile crosses flip face of Bruno Hauptmann, re
lieving the mask-like stolidity that he presents in the Hunterdon
county, New Jersey, courtroom, where he is on trial for the abduction
and murder of the Lindbergh baby, as he confers with his attorney,
Edward J. Reilly.

Of News Convention;

Bill Phipps, editor of the Emer
ald, was one of the 37 editors of
college dailies in Canada and the
United States to attend the organ
ization meeting of the Intercollegi
ate Daily News Association held
at Washington, D. C., during the
Christmas holidays. The purpose
of the association is to organize
and to campaign for an uncensored
college press.
Jesse H. Cutrer, former editor of
the Louisiana State University
daily, who was removed because
of his criticism of Huey Long, and
Long himself, were invited to ex
plain their sides of the contro
versy. Cutrer was present and ex
plained his side of the affair.
The association protested Cut
rer’s removal and adopted resolu
tions condemning Long for his
“unwarranted censorship and sup
pression of news in the Louisiana
State University paper and for his
demagogic political meddling,”
and James M. Smith, president of
L S.U. for his “personally selfish
submission to abridgement of stu
dents’ constitutional rights of
the press.”
President Roosevelt and Secre
tary Ickes addressed the group
and urged that college newspapers
be allowed to function without the
interference of state politics.
D. B. Hardeman, editor of the
Daily Texan, was elected national
chairman of the group. Phipps
served as chairman of the resolu
tions committee during the con

the floor. A large band stand sup
plemented by a complete wall lead
ing around the room will give the
completed set a substantial and
massive appearance that will make
the usual dance constructions seem
A large fountain equipped with
running water will help greatly in
carrying out the garden party mo
tif. A large blue canopy with a
moon in the background, with all
lighting indirect will provide the
finishing touches in creating an
impression of early evening in a
beautiful garden.
The sophomore class Is extend

help in making this dance the out
standing event of the winter term.
Admission will be free to all mem
bers of the class of 1937 who are

Rosson Calls Attention to
Concerts, Lectures
Hugh Rosson, graduate mana
ger, announced yesterday that it
was only through the faith of the
executive council that they were
able to secure the very best in
concert and lecture attractions for
the students and townspeople, who
desire to hear the very best for
entertainment. The council was
willing to assume heavy obliga
tions in order to bring such favor
ites as Jaschea Heifitz, Joseph
Hoffman, and Roland Hayes to
Eugene for engagements. Their
faith should be supported by stu
dents and townspeople by support
ing the ASUO membership drive
now being staged.
Heifitz Well-Known
The engagement of Heifitz in
Eugene is the only one to be given
in the state of Oregon. He will
come here directly from Salt Lake
City and Seattle, and from here he
will go to San Francisco and Los
Angeles for appearances.
The student body is given a well
rounded program of concerts and
lectures for winter term, as well
as many basketball games. Since
Oregon made such an impressive
showing against Washington State
and the defeat of Washington at
the hands of Idaho, a hot contest
is predicted in the conference.
A subscription is also given
each ASUO member to the daily
Emerald. The business staff is
planning to make a thorough check
beginning next week, to be sure
that only student body members
secure papers.
Durant Coming
Will Durant, noted author, is
also scheduled to lecture on the
campus. Rosson also announced
yesterday that negotiations were
underway to secure a lecture en
gagement with Frank Lloyd
Wright, one of the country’s lead
ing architects, for this term.
Other opportunities open to stu
dent body members is the privilege
to work on the Oregana staffs and
also on the Emerald. Student body
tickets are also necessary to serve
on class and student body commit
tees and to hold class or student
body offices. Band and orchestra
members also must have member
ship cards.

Sigma Delta Chi
Plans for Annual
‘Weekly’ Contest
Hal E. IIoss Trophy to Go
To Winning Paper at
The "Beat Weekly” contest to
be held in conjunction with the
Oregon press conference is al
ready underway. It was learned
from Sigma Delta Chi, men’s na
tional professional journalistic fra
ternity, sponsors of the contest,
that at least 22 weeklies have en
tered the race with others expect
ed to enter before the closing date,
which is Saturday, January 12.
An added attraction which
makes the contest more interest
ing is the Hal E. Hoss memorial
trophy. The new cup ip offered to
the best judged weekly published
in a town of 1,000 or less popula
tion. Its dedication to Hal E. Hoss,
late secretary of the state and an
associate member of Sigma Delta
Chi, is to honor a man whose
ideals of journalism were of the
highest, and it is hoped, this cup
will keep alive the spirit of finer
journalism in Oregon.
This year second awards of cer
tificates will be given to the sec
ond best weeklies, one for paper
published in a town less than 1,000
population, one for the open field.
The Sigma Delta Chi cup will
remain the grand prize offered to
the best weekly in Oregon.
The new cup is on display in
Arne G. Hoe’s office in the jour
nalism building where it will re
main until the press conference
held J—anuary 24, 25, and 26.
