Students Up in Air
Plane Attends Class
“What’s that doing here?”
That’s the question on the lips
of baffled students this week
who happened to wander upstairs
to room 207 Villard.
The unusual phenomenon was
a full-grown airplane.
It just sits there, despite the
fact that there is no record of
an airplane’s enrollment in any
The explanation comes from
James C. Stovall, instructor in
geography and director of civil
ian pilot training. Mr. Stovall
cleared up the mystery by an
nouncing that the plane, an
Eagle Rock built in 1927, is be
ing used for demonstration pur
poses in the aircraft operations
class in the CPI program.
Formerly, the Eagle Rock was
kept at the fairgrounds for class
demonstration, but according to
a government rule it must be
housed in a university classroom.
Villard hall is the only building
on the Oregon campus large
enough to act as an airplane
The plane is a three-piace ship;
it carries a pilot and two pas
sengers, and is powered with a
war-time motor, the famous 90
horsepower Curtis 0X5, which
was used to train ships in the
World war. The Curtis was the
latest type of airplane motor
then invented, and has not been
changed since that time, said Mr.
“It has flown its last,” said Mr.
Stovall, “and is now serving as
worthy a purpose as an Eagle
Rock ever could.”

Xi will take place at 4 p.m. Tues

music by Esther Williamson.
A comic selection, “Three In
ventories of Casey Jones,” was
the final dance. These “inven
tories” are based on the well
known American folk ballad.
Miss O'Donnell and Mr. Limon
were honored with a reception at
Gerlinger by Master Dance hon
orary following the recital.

'Job Was A Piker'
Rigors Described
Discomfort was not the only trouble suffered by Jimmie Young
during his stay in a Tokyo jail, for another trial was educating
Japanese questioners to the use of the word “likker” and similar
non-dictionary words in the American tongue.
In his speech Wednesday Mr. Young told how, bundled to the ears
because of the cold, he attempted to answer the queries of seven
“Who is Walter Winchell?”
“Who is Purina?” These and
other difficult questions were
fired at him by his interrogators.
His membership in Phi Gamma
Delta and Sigma Delta Chi was
the basis for accusing him of be
ing a Greek spy. His seven-year
membership in the Rotary Inter
national laid him open to sus
picion as a Communist.
During his imprisonment, said
Mr. Young, he had three books:
The New Testament, Mrs. Lind
bergh’s “North to the Orient,”
and,“Gone With the Wind.” He
was uninformed of world events
as he had no newspapers. Chop
sticks were his eating tools.
Typical laugh-pullers in his
speech were the Japanese slogan
parody “The New Odor in Asia”
and a description of Siberian
train operators as having a “two
track railway with a one-track

She Lost Her
Little Purse
Where Is It?
In the city of the Golden Gate,
Betty Buchanan patiently taps
her feet—and taps them and taps
them, while the railroad com
pany is going through the red
tape to refund her ticket money,
so she can join Elizabeth Steed
and two Stanford friends at the
AWS convention in Texas,
She was sitting in the dining
room of San Francisco hotel and
when she got up—well, she left
her purse behind her.
Thursday night, through the
red brick archives of the Chi
Omega house, a persistent tele
phone rang. It was Betty Bu
chanan asking the sisters for
some help.
They sent her money, but she’s
still waiting for her railroad
ticket to be refunded and in the
Pre-Meds to Take
Exam for Aptness

medical aptitude test May 1 prior

ical school in September of 1941
are asked to register with H. B.
Yocom, head of the zoology de
partment, as soon as possible.

ton to all parts of the United
States. Forty Oregon students

the exam November 8.
Statistics show some six hun

largely commercial.
Jose Limon Dances
With Artistic Grace
Fantastically surrealistic and the embodiment of physical complete
ness, Jose Limon has amazed dance audiences with professional en
gagements for the past 10 years.
To Mr. Limon dancing is the most cosmopolitan of the arts. In
modern dancing six currents of artistic power are harnessed into one
dance, as it contains the thoughts of literary men, painters, com
posers, designers, choreographers, and musicians of all nations.
Using the human body as an
instrument, Mr. Limon believes
that the emphasis of dancing
should be placed upon individual
contribution to group expression,
rather than one great soloist and
a chorus as in ballet.
He notes no conflict between
modern dancing and ballet but
indicates definite differences.
Modern dancing, as a form of
entertainment, is just beginning
to find itself and to know its
real purposes and goals.
Much Study
Mr. Limon has absorbed a wide
range of professional study un
der Charles Weidman and Doris
Humphrey, w’ith whose troupe he
appeared two years ago.
Modest, brilliant, and definite
ly successful as the male partici
pant of the Limon-O’Donnel duo,
he has established himself among
the leading young dancers in
America and favorable public
sentiment indicates permanent
popularity in the years to come.
