Suggestions Promised
|r The board met two weeks ago
and discussed possibilities for next
year regarding the concert series,
with student members declaring in
favor of a more diversified pro
gram. Upshot of that discussion
was a promise from Chairman Earl
M. Pallett to the effect that all
types of suggestions would be con
sidered at the next meeting, pro
viding definite information were
made available.
Tonight’s meeting, set for 7:30
in the faculty room of Friendly
hall, will see on the table for con
sideration everything from the
standard old-line cultural numbers
to Alexander Woollcott, Robert
Benchley, Eleanor Roosevelt, and
even swing concerts for the Igloo.
More Board Members
Policy of the board in the last
several years has been to develop
according to formula a stock five
number Greater Artist series, sea
► son tickets for which are sold down

distributed equitably through the
three terms of the year, subject of
course to available dates.
Recently the membership of the
board was enlarged by the other
half of the student committee,
which made no change in the num
ber of student votes, however.

Auto Tire Flops;
Professor Black
Gallops to Class
When Professor F. G. Black
hadn’t appeared at his 9 o'clock
survey of English literature
class by 9:05, a few of his stu
dents, curious, went out of the
Oregon building to investigate.
There was the professor on
Thirteenth street just opposite
the infirmary. He was galloping
in the general direction of the
Oregon building, one hand pull
ing down his hat, the other drag
ging along a little green sack
(brief case substitute I, his grey
overcoat waving behind him.
Professor Black came paint
ing into the classroom, mounted
the underslung platform up
front, and laughingly inquired,
“Which one of you is responsible
for my flat time?”
Athletic Board
Interprets Rules
Glass Backboards
Cause Overdraft
On Monthly Budget
Mostly concerned with the inter
pretation of the new Pacific coast
conference rules affecting- confer
ence athletic competition, the ath
letic board spent four solid hours
Monday night working its way
through its regular monthly docket.
The meeting opened with a study
of the monthly financial report, the
regular comparison of the original
with the revised budget, both com
pared with disbui’sements to date.
The report showed that as a rule
allotments are running according
to schedule. The one exception was
in the case of McArthur court,
where the unpredictable expense of
installing new glass backboards
had crossed up budget planners,
causing an apparent overdraft. The
overdraft was covered by emer
gency funds, by board motion.
Thumbs Down
Two construction possibilities
went down in defeat, one for a 10
foot wooden fence for a football
practice field and the other for a
WPA project to give McArthur
court a full basement instead of the
present half. Feeling of the board
was that no new heavy expenditure
should be undertaken at this time.
Dr. Will V. Norris, University
technical adviser, explained the
technical aspects of both projects.
Main reason for the calling of
the meeting was to hear a report
of a subcommittee appointed at the
last previous meeting expressly to
consider the interpretation of the
new conference rules affecting
proselyting of athletes. Members
of the group were Roland Davis,
Portland, Dean Ralph Leighton,
and John Dick, ASUO president.
That Man Again
The report of the group recom
mended further study and asked
that specific points be suggested
for investigation. It was established
in the report that almost all former
practices prevalent throughout the
conference were outlawed by the
new code, which is enforced by
$10,000-a-year 'Ex-G-man Edwin
Atherton. The study will be con
tinued and another report rendered
at the next meeting.
The meeting marked the first ap
pearance on the athletic board of
Orlando John Hollis, newly ap
pointed successor to Professor
H. C. Howe. Professor Howe re
signed last week from his post as
faculty representative from the
University of Oregon to the coast
conference, which meant also his
replacement on the athletic board.
Hollis is also a member of the edu
cational activities board.
The next meeting of the board
was set for March 6.
Called to order at 7:30 the meet
ing ended at 11:30. All members
were present but Roland Davis,
who was detained in Portland.
Speaker Delayed
A telegram has been received
from Clarence Henry of the Chica
go board of trade stating that he
will not arrive on the campus un
til the latter part of the week, the
school of business administration
office announced.
Mr. Henry was scheduled to talk
, to the classes in marketing.

For Three Encores
At Scout Benefit
The Eugene Gleemen, under the
direction of John Stark Evans,
have another successful perform
ance to their credit. Last night at
McArthur court this group of 80
perfectly blended voices sang to
an enthusiastic audience that
brought them back again after the
final number for three well-known
Last night’s performance was
the first of their two annual ben
efit concerts. Members of the Boy
Scouts of America, who are to
receive the benefits of this con
cert, acted as ushers.
»ing Familiar Songs
Favorites of the audience were
the familiar selections such as the
traditional “Prayer of Thanksgiv
ing,” arranged by Kresmer, that
opened the program; “One Who
Has Yearned Alone,” by Tschai
kowsky-Riegger, better known as
“None But the Lonely Heart,” and
“Liebestraum,” by Liszt and ar
ranged by Mr. Evans.
Others that appealed to the au
dience were those that brought out
the full force of the singers' voices,
including “the Crooked Man,” a
laughing song by Hughes, that
contained an artistic solo by Cora
Moore Frey, accompanist; “Carni
val,” a Russian Mazurka by Ganne
Homier; and “A Smuggler’s Song,”
by Williams.
The “Russian Carol,” by Rimsky
Korsakoff was enthusiastically re
ceived and encored by "Salvation
Belongs to Our God,” by Tschno
koff. Ready Sings
One of the highlights of the eve
ning was the baritone solo by Les
ter Ready of “Let Me Be Bom
Again,” by Young, and arranged
by Director Evans. He was encored
to sing the popular selection, “Old
Man River.” Then the whole group
sang the favorite “Hallelujah”
chorus from Beethoven’s oratorio,
"The Mount of Olives,” and “The
Oregon Trail.”
Other soloists were Joe Keever
who rendered a lyric tenor solo in
the “Irish Love Song, Mavour
neen,” and Fred Beardsley and
Rollin Calkin who interpreted solos
in Liszt's "Liebestraum.” "The Sa
lute to Finland” or “Suomi’s Song”
by Mair was sung by a double
niartet with Gleemen accompani
Mrs. Frey was excellent as ac
companist, and the vocal arrange
