McClung Opens Push for
‘Bonus First’ Group
With Auxiliary .
A group headed by R. Allen Mc
Clung started recruiting yester
day for an Oregon chapter of the
Veterans of Future Wars.
The group composed of McClung,
Carrell A. Green, R. H. Becker,
Robert L. Martin, and R. P. Gra
ham have secured their charter
from national headquarters and
will start distribution of organiza
tion’s buttons and collecting 25
cents for membership fees imme
diately.
“Home Fire” Organizing
Following in the footsteps of the
men's group, McClung announced
last night that an auxiliary Home
Fire unit of women had been or
ganized yesterday afternoon with
Harriet Kistner as commander.
Local 1 opinion regarding the
move had Don Thomas, recog
nized leader of the compulsory
ROTC, describing the movement
as a waste of energy and one
which “ridicules an organization
which has its faults, but which
should keep us out of future wars.”
Paddock Not Joining
Charles Paddock, president of
the Oregon Committee for Peace
and Freedom and the Oregon
chapter of the American Student
union, showed sympathy for the
group as an educational ridicule of
the war methods, but refused to
join because of its inconsistency
with his avowed pacifist views.
Others predicted that it would def
initely involve those who joined
with immediate draft in ’case of
war.
Colonel Says Nothing
Col. E. V. D. Murphy of the
Oregon ROTC barracks refused to
issue a statement on the grounds
that he was not familiar with the
entire plan of the organization.
The Emerald has already editor
ially regarded the VFW as a use
less movement against war.
McClung said he thought that
ridiculers of the organization were
overlooking its humorous side, but
that he had no further statements
to make until he met with the
VFW council.
Buttons for members being dis
tributed bear the face and extend
ed arm and torch of the statue of
liberty, outlined in white on a royal
blue background.
Everyone between the ages of
18 to 36 are eligible for member
ship. The organization resembles
the setup for the U. S. army with
a national commander over nine
regional commanders.
“The veterans of past wars got
their share. Why shouldn’t the
Veterans of Future Wars get
theirs?” asks Lewis J. Gorin Jr.,
student of Princeton university,
Veterans of Future Wars with
himself as national commander.
Since that time the organization
has grown to 130 posts including
102 vet organizations throughout
the United States and 28 Veterans
of Future Wars, Home Fire divi
sion for wTomen, originally initiated
at Vassar as the Future Gold Star
Mothers.
I've sat on the doorstep of a
county committeeman by the hour
and waited while he made believe
he wasn't at home.—Mrs. Frank
lin D. Roosevelt.

Robinson Gives Outstanding
Performance in Guild Play;
Cast Lends Superb Support
Acting Is Best of Recent
Campus Productions;
Audience Tardy
If most of the audience at Guild
hall last night had been "Outward
Bound” they would have missed
the boat. Members of the audience
dribbled in as if they were going
to a picture show and not to what
turned out to be the most ably act
ed production on the Guild hall
stage in recent years.
Horace W. Robinson, as Tom
Prior, the young wastrel, gave a
brilliant performance. Drawing
upon his extensive experience on
the stage he painted a vivid picture
of this character who was the first
to find out that the passengers on
the mystery ship were all dead.
Entire Cast effective
The delightful thing about the
acting of the entire cast in Sutton
Vane’s strange play, “Outward
Bound" was that contrary to the
usual happening the less experi
enced members of the cast were
not made to look amateurish by
Mr. Robinson's performance but
rather played up to him in a man
ner that clearly stamped the>r
work in this play as the best they
have done while in this school. No
small amount of credits for this
fact goes to Mrs. Ottilie Turnbull
Seybolt, the director.
It was while he held the center
of the stage that Mr. Robinson did
his most effective bits. His fine
tonal and facial shadings were
Closely followed by the audience
and his stage business was clever
and pertinent.
Mary Bennett Outstanding
Mary Bennett was Mrs. Midget
last night. She made her role as
the wistful Mrs. Midget the most
sympathetic portrayal of the eve
ning. Her cockney accent, which
faltered almost uhnoticeably once
or twice, was otherwise consistent.
Every one of the Guild hall play
ers gave a performance that was

Jury Gives Miss Hutchinson
$500 in 'Golf Ball’ Case
Hendershott Was Sued
For $20,000
By LILYAN KRANTZ
Now if the dandelions in a
treacherous gully on the golf
course that 15th day of June, 1935,
had not gone to seed and so be
come a vicious shield for a hiding
golf ball, then Miss Ann Hutchin
son, playing with a foursome on
the course would not have been
seeking so long. It follows that
she would not have been hit on the
head by the ball of Mr. Hermann P.
Hendershott playing on the tee
above the gully. Unfortunately,
the dandelions had gone to seed.
Moral: Tarry not, fair maiden.
Assuming the greatest profes
sional dignity, the barrister-to-be
of the trial practice class in third
year law school enacted this first
of the series of moot trials Thurs
day evening in the Lane county
circuit court. Orlando J. Hollis,
professor of law, was judge.
To reconstruct the case, Ann
Hutchinson, winsome red-haired
plaintiff, sued Hendershott for
$20,000 damages. The jury granted
her $500 damages for injuries and
hospital expenses. ,
The quiet atmosphere was lent a
most pertinent monetary touch

Oregon, OSC Profs, Students
Join For PE Conclave
Women’s physical education de
partments of the University of
Oregon and Oregon State college
are this week acting as hostess
schools at a three-day conference
of the western section of the Na
tional Association of Directors of
Physical Education for Women,
held on the Corvallis campus,
April 7, 8, and 9. Miss Florence
Alden of the University and Miss
Laura McAllester of OSC, heads
of the women's physical education
departments, were in charge of
program arrangements.
At the meeting of the western
division held at Berkeley during
the past year, Miss Alden acted as
president of the association, and
also served as secretary-treasurer
of the national organization, which
met last year at Oberlin College,
Ohio.
Several Oregon professors and
students are taking part in the
three day program, In view of in
fluences in a changing social order
that are making a particular chal
lenge to the field of recreation, the
program committee enlisted Dr.
Victor P. Morris, professor of eco
nomics, to discuss these trends.
Dr. John F. Bovard, dean and
director of physcial education for
the Oregon system of higher edu
cation. discussed “Co-Educational
Physical Education.” For many
years there has been a tendency
to organize recreation and physical
education for men and girls separ
ately. Recently there has been a
distinct movement to break away
from this artificial separation and
to bring young people together in
a program of wholesome recrea
tive activities aimed at putting the
relationship of young people and
their common interests on a wider
and more wholesome basis. Dr.
Bovard described these trends and
suggested possible future lines of
development. Both men spoke at
the Wednesday afternoon session.
John J. Landsbury, dean of the
school of music; Nowland Zane,
associate professor of Space arts;
and Mrs. Faye Knox, instructor in
the dance, were in charge of the
Wednesday evening program, de
voted to “Basic Studies in Rhythms
of the Arts.”
The topic is based on the idea
that all of the arts have common
fundamentals, of which rhythm is
one. There will be a discussion and
demonstration of the manner in
which the three arts, music, static
art, and the dance, express these
basic principles, each in its own
language. Demonstration will in
clude piano numbers, slide illus- j
trations for the space arts, and j
appearance of five girls of the j
master dance group, Claudia Sev
ier, Rose Gore, Shirley Bennett,
Virginia Kerns, and Josephine
Overturf.
Candidates
Make Official
Statements
Ten Fraternities Pledge
Support to Finley;
Hannnond Opponent
Campus political organization,
which appeared one-sided earlier
this week, came into the open yes
terday when leaders of both par
ties made official announcements
concerning tickets which they will
promote during the campaign fra
cas before election, April 23.
Following a political caucus held
Thursday night at the Phi Delt
house, Craig Finley, junior in psy
chology, announced his intention of
running for the office of student
body president.
Majority Present
The meeting at which Finley en
tered the campus political turmoil
was attended by representatives of
a majority of men’s living organi
zations. Representatives of Phi
Gamma Delta, Alpha Tau Omega,
Delta Tau Delta, Phi Delta Theta,
Sigma Chi, Phi Sigma Kappa, The
ta Chi, Sigma Phi Epsilon, Phi
Kappa Psi, Chi Psi, and Beta The
ta Pi were present. They pledged
their houses as 100 per cent behind
Finley and the Finley ticket.
Finley’s ticket is certain to in
clude Jim Kurd, champion swim
mer, as vice-president, Lillian
Warn as secretary, Marjory Kiss
ling, senior woman, Don Johnson,
junior finance man, and Henry
Minger, senior man.
“As far as my platform is con
cerned,” Finley stated, “I cannot
say anything until after definite
action has been taken by the exec
utive council on proposed changes
in ASUO set-up. I am, however,
very much pleased with the sup
port which has been given me so
far, and I feel certain that should
I be elected, the loyalty of so large
a group will do much to eliminate
petty bickering between opposing
political factions.”
Don Thomas, recognized as the
leader of the group backing Fred
Hammond for student body presi
dent last night declared, “Our boys
are sitting tight, and we will have
things lined-up fai a few days. We
have been organizing right along;
no changes have been made in the
support. I believe we will be able
to make a definite statement of
our candidates by next Tuesday.”
The announcement which came i
from Thomas last night appeared'
to end campus gossip that opposi
tion to the Finley party was dor
mant, since the house splits last
week. Hammond politicos, small
in number, have been acting quiet
ly awaiting definite action from
the opposite faction, but it is be
lieved that they will swing into
full force early next week in prep
aration for the nominating assem
bly Thursday.
Lee Is President
Of Toastmasters
Howard Lee was elected presi
dent at a meeting- qf the Toast
master club Wednesday night in
the Y hut. Don Yeager was cho
sen vice-president, and Lew Evans
secretary-treasurer.
The club will continue its regu
lar policy of informal discussions,
but will branch out into larger
fields, Lee said in speaking of next
year’s plans.
Better campus contacts, and the
ability of developing leadership and
ease in expressing oneself in front I
of a group will be aims of the club
said the new president.
The policy of open meetings will
be continued in hope that an all
campus membership may be ob
tained. The Toastmaster club meets
regularly Thursday evenings at 8
in the Y hut.

Robin Clinches
Evidence That
Spring Is Here
Concrete evidence that spring
has brought "sweet winds and fair'
to the Oregon campus may be seen
by the activities of a robin which
apparently is considering taking
up housekeeping in a tree near the
administration building.
Last year a robin—evidently the
same bird or a near relative dem
onstrated mass production anti dis
tribution without waste by raising
and feeding five youngsters in a
tree near the west wall of Johnson
This year's bird evidently hae
other sites in mind since it has vis
ited its old haunts only once oi
twice. Each time it appears it hai
a worried, care-worn look on its
motherly face as if it were being
badgered by real estate agents
However, the season is yet in th«
early stages and it is hoped that
the robin may reconsider and re
turn to its old haunts to fetch uf
and educate the young 'tins.
