    Famous Soprano Will Appear as Homecoming Ends
Arrival to Be
Feted Today
Tickets Yet Available
For Singing Star's
Concert on Sunday
Climaxing a week of celebrities
Galli-Curci, international colora
tura soprano, will follow the John
son choir and Paul Whiteman into
McArthur court at 3:15 tomorrow
The singer, who has been re
ceived by the aristocracy of Eur
ope will be welcomed with one of
Oregon’s royalist homecoming re
ceptions upon her arrival at 11:30
this morning.
Under the sponsorship of the
greeting committee Barney Hall,
ASUO president, will welcome the
visitor and the University band
and rally committee will add color
to the occasion. Following the of
ficial welcome Galli-Curci will be
paraded through Eugene to the
Desires Rest
Although arrangements for her
stay at the University are uncer
tain, because of an expressed de
sire to rest from her trip until the
time of her concert Sunday after
noon the faculty has taken steps
to see that she is not disturbed.
Since her throat operation and
retirement a few years ago the
famous soprano has been referred
to as the new Galli-Curci because
of a slight change of voice effected,
giving her singing a new quality
which critics acclaim as even su
perior to the original.
Husband Accompanies
She will be accompanied tomor
row by her husband, a well-known
American pianist and' composer.
Galli-Curci, one of the few self
taught singers of today, has per
formed in practically every civil
ized country in the world. Italian
by birth she made her first Amer
ican appearance in Chicago in
1916 and has made her home in
this country since.
George Root, educational activi
ties manager, reports that although
the ticket sales are going “swell”
there are several hundred good

Master Printer Nash
Sets Type Every Day
“I set type every day of my life. I never wander off to do big
things,” John Henry Nash, one of the outstanding printers of contem
porary times, told Dean Allen's editing class in an informal interview
Although the little shop on Sansome street, San Francisco, has
now grown until it occupies the top floor of the John Henry Nash
building, the famous artist says he never employs more than two
neipers, anu win noi. accept no
much work that any of it would
have to be rushed through. His
“Life of Dante,” in four volumes,
he considers the finest piece of
printing his shop has ever turned
out. He worked on it about six
Takes Care in Work
“I watched the last page as care
fully as the first," he declared in
relating the printing of the job.
“The paper for the ‘Dante' was
ordered so that I could print two
' pages at a time instead of eight,"
he explained. “That way I could
watch the distribution of ink on
every page.”
, Paper for Mr. Nash's books
comes from Holland. The “Dante”
he had bound in vellum at a cost
of $10 per volume in Germany.
The type for the work came from
Italy. After it had arrived, he dis
covered the founders had cast no
“w”. When he had this letter add
ed, it proved to be less than “type
high” and each time it was used it
had to be raised by placing a sheet
of paper under it.
Receives $40,000 From Hearst
The most he ever received for
the printing of a single volume
was $48,000 paid him by William
R. Hearst for 1,000 copies of a life
of Hearst's mother. When he was
first called in, Hearst insisted the
book be done with illustrations.
Mr. Nash declined the job, later
accepted it when Hearst told him
to do it as he wanted to, and found
the renowned publisher well pleased
with the completed book.
Mr. Nash’s father, a mechanical
engineer, wanted his son also to
study for the engineering profes
sion. “I was born to be a printer,”
he firmly declared yesterday. “I
threatened to run away from home
after working six months in a
foundry.” He entered a printing
establishment and fulfilled the re
quirements for the rank of master
printer, usually requiring a seven
seats still available and tickets can
be obtained until noon tomorrow
at the Igloo or at the door imme
diately before the concert.

year apprenticeship, in two years.
Starts on Small Capital
Although he had been making
$600 a month when he first went
into his own shop, he had just one
month's salary as a starting capi
tal. The remainder he had invest
ed in books—the books which
formed the nucleus for a collec
tion now worth $250,000.
“In a year I was rolling in
wealth,” he said.
Works for Pleasure
Half of the books Mr. Nash has
printed he has produced fop pleas
ure and to give to friends, he
states. In his lean early years he
often would start a book he want
ed to reproduce, dropping work on
it from time to time in order to
print other things and gain money
to further the job he wanted to do.
Hand-set type gives far uetter
results than does machine (lino
type) composition, he believes.
Spacing can be done much more
evenly by hand than on the ma
chine. Modern paper, he declares,
is on a par with that produced for
the Gutenberg Bible which he class
es as the finest. Such paper is
largely produced in Holland, he
stated, and is a quality superior
to anything produced in the United
Hand-Set Type Best
Hand-set jobs are of better qual
ity than machine work. The great
est care must be taken with it,
and this is also an important fac
tor in rule printing. (Experts
have declared the rule work in
his “Dante” to be the finest ever
done.) In printing his best book,
the “Life of Dante,” he says he
used four sets of rules in printing
250 copies because of the rough
ness of the paper.
Mr. Nash plans and supplies type
for one book to be printed each
year by the typography class. Al
though the class did not print a
book last year, he declared its
work on a more simple folder
could scarcely have been improved.
Final Two Days

ent will parade around the field
before the kickoff.
Game Starts at 2
Bringing together two teams,
steeped in tradition and evenly
matched, according to some sports
writers, the toughest fought foot
ball battle since 1933 will start at
2 o’clock.
An alumni get-together and
“bull-fest”. will follow the game
at the Eugene armory, at 7th and
Oak streets. Every alum is expect
ed to be there and this is to be one
of the highlights of the weekend.
On the evening program are
“welcome-back” dinners at many
living organizations, dinner par
ties, and dances in many houses.
It is believed many of the grads
will want to dance at the park, as
no campus dance is scheduled for
this evening.
Showing of the Burgess rare
book collection at the library and
the presentation and display of the
John Henry Nash book collection
at 8:30 will be events of this even
Culminating in the ASUO con
cert by Galli-Curci, Sunday at 3
o’clock, the weekend will draw to
a close. This outstanding singer
will present a fitting program to
complete the three-day celebration.
Bill Dalton, general chairman of
the weekend’, has been helped in
the various events by these chair
men of the individual committees:
Sion Wentworth, noise parade;
Stan Davis and Wally Rossmann,
frosh bonfire; Maury Manning,
homecoming signs; Kathleen Duffy,
alumni registration contest; Dick
Pierce, dance; Harry Hodes, fi
nance; Warren Waldorf, publicity;
Hal Haener, advertising; Fred
Beck and Dale Mallicoat, decora
tions; Jeanette Charman, secre
tary, and Jean Palmer, assistant
chairman of the weekend.
The men's swimming pool was
reopened Thursday afternoon, after
being closed for several days for
necessary repairs and adjustments.
Swimming classes resumed Friday.
In Alumni Program Spotlight
Basil Williams, above, and Ben
Chandler, right, are among the
alumni who will have a big part in
the homecoming weekend program.

Chief Refuses
Police Guards
For Goal Posts
No attempt will be made to
prevent the uprooting of the
Hayward field goal posts after
today’s game, Chief of Police
Bergman announced last night.
He declared the act had become
a “little war” tradition and did
little harm outside of blackening
a few eyes, infering that previous
attempts at after-game restric”
tion had come to little avail.
To prevent any serious prop
erty damage, however, a strong
force, consisting of city police, j
some state officers, and the sher
iff’s department will be present
at the game.
Chief Bergman says, "The boys
from Oregon State are fine fel
lows, the boys from Oregon are
fine fellows; but, if they start
destroying property we'll give
’em gas.”
Because of the large Home
ing crowd the campus police
force will be greatly reenforced
and officers will be present at
che larger functions to see that
all goes as well as can be ex
As there has never been any se- j
rious trouble in the past the
chief is not expecting any un
usual behavior this time, but he
promises “If there's a crowd—
we’ll have some men there.”
Board Members
(Continued from page one)
Iowa, have visited here and, it is
believed, been interviewed by board
Remer Visits
The 48-year-old nominee, Dr. Re
mer, visited with faculty members,
discussing educational questions,
and it was believed that he had
been informally interviewed by
members of the faculty advisory
council. The council has been co
operating with the chancellor in
naming the list, all of whom are
believed to have expressed their
willingness to be considered.
Selection Awaits Interviews
It is known that the visitor, an
authority on world economics and
oriental trade, is favored by many
of the groups on the campus.
No selection will be made until
the board has talked to several of
the candidates, it was announced
at the time of the last meeting,
but the necessary interviews may
have been made by Monday in an
attempt to conclude the work and
announce it after the session.

Officials Withhold Hope
Little detail can be given about
the program, for high officials in
Sigma Delta Chi, contacted late
last night, would say little other
than that their proteges were sleep
ing like babes and would be in
there giving their all on the mor
row. Even the names of the stars
were guarded like Mussolini taking
a Cook’s tour through Ethiopia,
but it was rumored that the cast
would be as follows: Warren Wal

and Kenneth Webber.
Prep Newspapers
To Be Considered
Twice by Judges
Judging itf the papers entered in
the high school newspaper contest,
to be held October 29 and 30 under
the supervision of Sigma Delta Chi,
journalism honorary, will be done
in two steps, Howard Kessler, con
test head, announced yesterday.
The five best papers in each of the
five divisions will be selected by
University journalism students and
submitted to the journalism faculty
for final place awards.
The judges in the various fields
are: advertising, Bill Pease; copy
editing, Bob Pollock; art, George
Bikman; features, Hubard Kuokka;
news, Darrel Ellis; make-up, Lloyd
Tupling; editorial, Paul Deutseh
The five divisions in which pa
pers will be judged arc: best
mimeographed paper, best news
notes in a general newspaper, best
paper in a school of less than 500
pupils, best paper in a school of
more than 500 pupils, and best high
school newspaper in the state as a
division in which all other winners
are automatically entered. Win
ners in each division will be award
ed a cup symbolic of their triumph.

a homecoming of record-breaking
A brisk demand for game tick

sold'. Plans were being made for
emergency seating accommodations
in case of a complete sellout. Re
served seating has been sold out
for ten days.
Reinforced by additional lists of
available weekend quarters for the
homecoming crowds, the alumni
housing bureau settled down to the
task of arranging housing for vis
itors. Considerable registration
had taken place already Friday af
ternoon, No difficulty is expected
by the bureau in taking care of
all comers.
The prospect of continued favor
able weather was expected to con
tribute heavily to attendance fig
