Which Way—Habit or New Fields?
■yX^lIENEVEli it sets out to line up a pro
pram for another year 1 he educational
activities board, one of the two most powerful
money-handling policy bodies in semi-student
government at the University, finds itself up
against a choice.
This choice is in effect whether to go right
down the line with the now standard five
number Greater Artist series or try to branch
out and include educational features not in
the field of music. Tho choice met the board
face to face again last week, and the board
will have to make up its mind my next meet
ing time. Greater-artist type numbers must be
signed up nearly a year in advance, for they
work toward a full calendar of engagements.
The time for signing is at hand, and the jump
must be made one way or another.
# ■* #
JN the last several years the choice lias lain
with the first alternative, five musical num
bers each year. Commit ting itself in the spring
of one year to a series for the next means a
limited amount of money to lie spent for such
a program. It is for this reason that the last,
few years have been much alike in character,
for whim the tested formula is followed— ong
top, three medium, and one lower-price attrac
tion—the slate is closed to much else.
At its last meeting the board showed signs
of kicking over the traces in favor of a more
diversified program, mostly, it must be admit
ted, ou the impetus of the student members,
who brought up reminders of the year in
which Admiral Byrd and Richard Halliburton
appeared in the Igloo. Suggested this time
were such names as Eleanor Roosevelt, who
was passed up this year, Alexander Woolcotl,
and Cornelia Otis Skinner. Upshot of the dis
cussion was a promise from Chairman Balled
that all types of attractions would be con
sidered at the next meeting, providing facts,
figures, and dates were included.
* * *
JF the board is really interested in an all
around program it is in a position to make
some of tin: most sweeping departures in the
history of Oregon planning. For instance, one
thing which was not mentioned to the board
was the possibility of doing a Hollywood Bowl
or Carnegie Ilall in the Igloo with someone
like Benny Goodman or Haul Whiteman or
Horde Groi'e. These are available for about
the same as a top-price concert single artist,
and have been so successful wherever tried as
to look like a permanent fixture in American
music. At the Bowl Goodman's success was
phenomenal. Whiteman packed I lie Igloo two
years ago. This type of thing is definitely
high-class, accepted as such by a discerning,
intelligent public. Carnegie hall and 1hc Bowl
are not exactly dives. In short, here is the
outstanding development in modern music, it
cannot be dismissed as frivolous, it is sub
stantial, and it is sound business. Naturally
the students would like it. And it is a depart
ment which has been neglected.
£^F course Ibis does not consider the result
ing complications which would touch the
sale of season concert tickets, but there is as
much favorable argument as otherwise here.
This is only one of the possibilities open if
anything definite enough as to prices and
dates could be brought to the board. But the
meeting will probably be some time this week,
which means there is very lttle time in which
to prepare a ease strong enough to cause even
the slightest deviation from the old-line, hard
and-fast policy of an all-concert season.
A Line Could Be Drawn
glNCF, winter term is the heaviest assembly
f|uarter ol the school year it is only
natural that much will lm said ahoul assent

Author of the idea is an adult who takes
in every assembly. She says she notices that

well tilled by townspeople, members of the
faculty, families, and other non I’niversity
Students. This in itself is no evil, she declares.
However, there is at times a solid phalanx
of elderly enthusiasts in the block of seals
below tin' speakers’ platform, which relegates
tbe student, majority (o what is left in seals.
Ijven this would not be so bad in itself, she
iterates, -were il not that visiting speakers
come in, look down on that mature audience,
and probably say what they think will enter
tain them.
# # #
far as tbe inelusion of non students in
assembles, that should raise no issue, for
the University lias never been selfish ahoul
good tilings il had to offer, and there is no
indication that any change in policy is in the
nl’fing now. Townspeople have walehed the
University grow up, and they are important,
supporters ol the school.

of seals be left for the college students, and
that, side blocks lie designated for visitors.
She even suggests the gallery, but there is
not much room there, and there is not much
real need to banish visitors to the balcony,
even though those seals have much lo recom

It is not easy to change anything about the
the I 'diversity if it “lias always been done,”
which is one of the tragic things about a
four-year student tenure in higher cducal ion.
J'uit difficult as it is, an effort, is being made
this year to bring about a better product. Last,

Behind the
Scoup, All about the king of
hearts contest! For 24 hours a
day, special operators have been
searching and inquiring into the
inside story of Oregon's king of
hearts contest.
Now they reveal all. The king
of hearts contest is sponsored
by YWCA coeds and the candi
dates are all chosen by a com
mittee of coeds (about 15).
This of course excludes the
Bounders Row candidate, DON
GILBERT, who was put up by
the Bounders. Don was quoted
in his campaign speech as say
ing, “I’d like to be king of
hearts, but I wish I had my note
book back, someone stole it.”
Speaking of thieves, who was
the unscrupulous individual who
robbed Oregon’s only sheriff of
his wallet? Yes, Sheriff Euck
was robbed, but not only that,
while the sheriff was supervis
ing a publicity shot for his
Whiskerino someone ran off
with part of his attractive scen
ery’s property. Carol Cook was
presenting a smile for the cam
era man, assured she was safe
with the good sheriff near,
and she lost her notebook.
Nancy Hay, always good for
a hit of gossip, now takes the
(■leaner boys to the cleaners as,
armed with scissors, she exposes
dimpled knees by merely cutting
all modern bands.
In English They’re Horns
Musicians’ jive talk is sup
posed to become more and more
brief as the musicians grow old
er. Gene Mack, the electric
guitarist, was one day chatting
with one old gent who remarked,
"I was once a musician too. I
played in street bands.”
“What did you play,” inquired
“Clary, bary, and obe,” the
old fellow replied proudly.
Gene had to probe around
subtly for several minutes be
fore ho finally learned that this
meanL “clarinet, baritone horn,
and oboe.” ,
Man Who Comes Around
Tony Pastor, ex-Artie Shaw
vocalist and sax player has just
completed his first two record
ings for Victor. They are
“Watching the Cloc k,” and
“Dance With a Dolly.”
Vincent Lopez has introduced
a new dance which is supposed
to he sweeping the Pacific coast.
It is called “Put Your Little
Foot There,” and features the
baby voice of Penny Parker. . . .
Los Brown's and Tommy Tuck
er's “The Man Who Comes
Around” (When Papa Goes
Away), is being heard all over
the campus. ... If you like ’em
sweet and smooth, the new- Blue
birdisc “Thank Your Stars”
should fill the bill.
Glenn lilts With Another
The latest offering of prolific
Glenn Miller is one of his best
