University Talent Show
Wins Audience Praise
Throughout Odeon's entire 32 inches of program, students
and faculty members of the University and Eugene townspeo
ple listened to the first annual student talent show with atten
tion and amazement, breaking their trance only once, when
they changed theaters- from the music auditorium to Gerlinger
hall. Odean was presented last Monday, beginning at 8 p.m.
and lasting until almost midnight.
ucieon s 4-nour program opened
in the music auditorium with the
presentation of musical, literary,
journalistic, dramatic works, and
style show. At 10:45 it shifted to
Gerlinger hall, where the Master
Dance group presented, its pro
gram of dances. There also the
audience viewed literary displays
and the art exhibition.
Professor W. A. Dahlberg, fac
ulty chairman of Odeon, opened
the program with an introduc
tory speech. Dr. Robert D. Horn
followed with an introduction of
guest critics.
Musical Talents
Musical compositions by Bar
bara. Crisp, Elizabeth Walker,
and Eugene Bennett, all members
of the University school of
music, brought forth talents
of which the majority of students
and faculty members had hereto
fore been unaware. Performance
of the compositions by members
of the school of music was a
large factor in their success.
Two short stories, “The Jour
ney” by G. Duncan Wimpress and
"I’ve Never Stopped Looking”
by Barbara Hampson, read in
their entirety, kept the attention
of the audience from beginning
to end, which is the test of a
good yarn.
