Again I See
(Continued from Fai/c Two)
The files of the Eugene City
Guard and the Oregon Journal of
1876-77 bring vividly to mind the
terrors of the small pox panic
which • seized the town, the sum
mer before the opening of the Uni
versity, and continued into the fall.
The steamer “John F. Stephens’’
had brought to Portland a China
man who subsequently was pro-1
nounced a small pox victim, and a
fellow passenger, engaged as a
farm hand west of town, later de
veloped .the malady. Still later
When Mr. W. H. Abrams, living on
East Broadway fell ill, the attend
ihg physician diagnosed it as var
ioloid and so officially reported it.
But the Town Council, in response
to public demand, engaged Dr. A.
W. Patterson to investigate, who
pronounced it as an unquestioned
case of small pox. The yellow flag
was at once displayed.
I have a hazy memory of a
whole family west of town being
wip’ed out. A suspicious Chinaman
was detected, skulking about town
and adding tremendously to the
panic. A man was quarantined in
what was popularly called ‘'the
pest house" on the slope of Col
lege Hill south of town. How well
1 recall that haunted shack, so
lonely in a big field, shunned by
all as we would a lazar-house!
And what a relief it was to all of
us youngsters when it was burned
to demonstrate the effectiveness
of a Chemical Fire Engine in
which our City of Eugene had just
And all this was happening just
at the opening of the University,
the excitment about Mr. Abrams
occurring only the day before ma- 1

Demonstration Given
Before Food Classes
A demonstration of the uses of
evaporated milk was given by
Miss Millicent Atkins, member of
the educational staff of the Evap
orated Milk association, before the
foods classes in the Home Econom
ics extension building yesterday
from 2 until 5 p. m.
Miss Atkins prepared various
food products before the class,
showing the use of evaporated
rnilk in the home and its economic
triculation. Eugene papers made
every effort to stifle any too great
publicity, the Guard in particular
rapping another paper soundly for
spreading unwarranted news. Un
questionably it affected the enroll
ment at the University, and it cer
tainly did the morale of the stu
dents. It is a wonder the institu
tion kept an even course under
such stress, for other enterprises,
both public and private, were tem
porarily suspended.
An interesting side light is
thrown upon the picture by an
item appearing in both papers of
Oct. 21, 1878, to the effect that
“Miss Ina Condon’s school in the
Episcopal Church school house will
reopen the 23rd.” It had been
closed on account of the small pox
panic. Ina Condon was eldest
daughter of Dr. Thos. Condon of
the Faculty, only recently arrived
in Eugene, later to become the
wife of Robert S. Bean of the

success of “G. D. of 1933' when
he christened his "airflow” danc

year. It possess all the alarming
elements of a nightmare, including
the sensation of trying its best to

Guests Spoil Fun
The show opens gayly with the
lilting tempo of a Chevalier-in

arrive and spoil the fun of seeing
a mock March of Time study of

other masticatable scene—Shop

illusion that Gloria Stuart might

as widely diverse and jumbled as

leader, Broadway Baby tune, to
justify the rest.
