“I feel just like a bird that’s been let out of a cage,” said
Wilbur Bishop, retiring editor of the Oregana, as he packed
up and prepared to relinquish to incoming Editor Wesl Sul
livan the McArthur court office he has held for two years.....
Small, serious Bishop, after nearly a year’s work on the
current issue of Oregon s year
book, said his job hdn't been ex
citing. “But it was doing what I
like to do. It was great, planning
the Oregana, and seeing it cre
ated step by step,” he said.
Bishop is sitting back and “tak
ing things easy” during his last
term at school before going into
flight training this summer and
later enlisting in the air corps.
New Editor Takes Charge
New Oregana Chief Wes Sulli
van already has things well un
der way for next year’s year
book. “I will endeavor to follow
the general trend the Oregana
has been following in the last few
years,” he said.
“The job of editor has had
more and more responsibility at
tached to it as the Oregana has
been given greater recognition,”

Vronsky Plus Babin Equals
Marriage Plus Career
By BOB EDWARDS
Few artists are able to com
bine marriage and a career as
successfully as the piano team,
Vronsky and Babin, who will play
in McArthur court, Monday, April
Individually both were known
outside their native Russia as
successful concert artists, and
had toured Europe and England.
It might be said that they were
competitors, but marriage made
their two careers one. It may be
said that they married each oth
er’s music as well.
New Yorker Says
The New Yorker magazine
spoke of their playing as that of
“two Romantics, almost vocal in
style, for they make their pi
anos sing- like matched voices.”
Babin, who was a pupil in com
position of Franz Shreker, has
already found publishers for his
works in Europe and America.
In addition to a pianoforte con
certo, he has written for two pi
anos and for voice, and has made
arrangements for two pianos.
His only opportunity for cre
ative work is during the short
interlude of summer rest between
tours; like the psalmist of old,
he looks “to the eternal hills from
whence cometh his strength” . . .
In other words, the American
Rockies, where he has a camp in
the most picturesque part of these
