When the clean of women's
office moved to Gerlinger hall, it
inherited a. pictue, “Charlotte,”
done by Sidney Bell, well-known
Portland portrait artist.
Recently the grandson of Burt
Brown Barker, vice-president of
the University, was painted by
Mr. Bell. Now his picture hangs
side by side with the delicately
tinted study of the little girl in
the dean of women's office as
companion pieces.

event will be the premiere perform
ance of the Union, which was or
ganized last fall by Director Kratt.
Written by Felix Mendelssohn in
1845, the first performance of
"Elijah" took place in the town
hall at Birmingham, England, on
the morning of Wednesday, August
26, 1846. Due to the fact that eight
of the numbers were encored, the
performance lasted from dawn un
til almost noon, when the composer
appeared at the conductor’s stand.
An observer of this scene wrote
of it: "The reception he met with
from the assembled thousands was
absolutely overwhelming, and the
sun, emerging at that moment,
seemed to illumine the vast edifice
in honor of the bright and pure be
ing who stood there, the idol of all
The chorus at the work's pre

will sing the work in McArthur
court. The Festival choral group,

called them), 72 basses, and 60

Largest Donation;
Tags Raise $139
Oregon's three "champion''
swimmers, object of a campus cam
paign for funds to send them to
the national intercollegiate swim
ming meet, left Thursday for the
Yale campus in Connecticut.
Over $650 in student and alumni
funds paid their expenses east,
raised in a two weeks drive chair
maned by Verdi Sederstrom and
Wendell Wyatt.
Of the amount raised, the sopho
more class contriouted $100, to
gain recognition as the largest
single organization contribution.
Tag sales in living organizations
netted $74 from men’s groups, and
$65 from women's.
The University athletic board
"came through” with $250 to send
the swimming trio to the Connecti
cut meet, while the interfratemity
council furnished $50, the junior
class $25, the Eugene alumni $25,
and the Portland alumni $20. The
University panhellenic group furn

second base, and the pitching posi
tions must be bolstered.
Jack Shimshack may be moved
to plug the hole at second. He
played right field last year. At first
base either Hank Anderson, lanky
hoop star, or Herb Hamer, hold
over reserve, may see action. Ha
mer is the boy who poles out home
runs frequently.
Shortstop and third base may
have more reserve power to choose
from. Hobson has Tommy Cox, Tini
Smith, Leo Carrilho, Jack Loshi
tomi, Kenny King, and Arba Ager
from which to pick. Cox hit low last
1 year in the outfield, but as a sopho
j more he hit in the ,300s. Ager is a
transfer from Southern Oregon
Normal. Carrilho and King are up
from the frosh. Smith is a reserve.
Catching position appears well
fortified with Walden and Jim
Rathbun capable of handling the
duties. The pitching may be a weak
spot. Hobson has A1 Linn, Jack
Jasper, and Igoe back. They won
letters as pitchers last year. White
may be used as a pitcher. Leland
Dragoo appears the best of last
year's freshman hurlers.
