To View \Dark Victory'
“Dark Victory’s” reappearance tonight at 8 in Guild hall, marks
the successful completion of the second production by the University
theater in accordance with their ambitious four-year plan to acquaint
University students with every type of dramatic work.
Of the four plays scheduled for this year two have now been pre
sented, a comedy, “Out of the Frying Pan” and a drama, “Dark Vic
tory”. Left to be considered are the experimental drama, on which work
is already being started, and the musical review in the spring.
W. A. Dahlberg, director of speech and dramatic arts,°in com
menting on the production said, “I think it excellent. I was particularly
impressed with Mr. Krasnowsky and Miss Korn. To me the play ‘Dark
Victory’ represents one additional step in the University theater’s new
policy.” Mr. Dahlberg continued that he especially wanted to congrat
ulate Director Horace Robinson in his cooperation with the drama de
partment on this new program. He also described “the old maid,”
Margie Robinson’s portrayal of the old housekeeper, as excellent.
Mrs. Eyler Brown, treasurer and former president of Eugene’s
Very Little Theater also pronounced the play “very splendid’., adding
that it was the “most restrained and consistent thing I've seen in a
long time.”

Tomorrow’s gala formal, the an
nual Military Ball, is open to facul

military students from other units
on the campus.
Representatives of the ASTP men
who are sponsoring the Ball an

Fulfill Nursing Demands
Between 50 and 60 pre-nursing students enrolled at the Uni
versity are helping to meet the nation’s requirements for nurses,
both service and civilian. Most of these students are freshmen.
By July 1, it is necessary that 65,000 students nurses be attending
schools in the United States, and this quota has not been reached,

apiece. This win puts the two teams
back in a tie for third place in the
conference standings.
Washington State passed incess
antly to solve the zone defense that
the Ducks were using. It was not
until the last two minutes of play
that the Webfoots changed from
their zone to a man-for-man de
fense, and even this seemed to be a
benefit to the Cougars.
Until the last six minutes of play,
when the Staters grabbed a lead
they could hold, the ball game was
very close with the lead changing
five times in the first half and three
times in the second. The 19 to 17
score at the half saw the Cougars
on the long end.
Borrevik, because of his perform
ance the night before, was held in
check and as a result only scored
four points. High man for Wash
ington State was Carstens with 14
points and for Oregon Humphreys
with 7.

ing education, said Thursday.
Under an accelerated program,
a pre-nursing student may receive
her B.S. and H. N. degrees in 4.5
months, whereas this course norm
ally takes 5 years. By the reduction
of electives, requirements on the
University campus may be met in
a minimum of four quarters in
stead of six.
A nursing student, when accept
ed in the professional curriculum
at a medical school such as the
University of Oregon medical
school in Portland may receive fi
nancial aid by applying through
the school's director for enroll
ment in the United States cadet
nurses corps, Miss Doldz said.
Staying in nursing for the dura
tion either in civilian hospitals or for
the armed forces, is the cadet
nurse's only obligation. Uniforms
are furnished and all fees and main
tenance expenses are paid. In ad
dition a stipend, or allowance, at
the monthly rate of $15 for the
first nine months, $20 for the next
21 months, and $30 for the last!
three months, is given.
Of the 45 months spent in train

Scholarships in Many Varied Fields
Offered to Women Graduate Students
Scholarship possibilities for women graduate students bav®'
greatly increased in the past few years, and now more than ever
there are opportunities for graduate work in many varied fields*
Karl W. Onthank, dean of personnel has reported.
Dean Onthank stressed that students of this year's graduat
ing class, or former graduates, should, if they are interested.,
make out applications immediately
for graduate scholarships as some
of these applications must be in by
March 1.
Most colleges and universities
make their scholarship awards dur
ing March or April and some even
earlier and have a deadline date
after which no application will be
received, so it is advisable to plan
carefully and begin early in search
for a scholarship, he said.
An example of the many scholar
ships available to students who
have completed their University re
quirements is the business admin
istration scholarship to Bryn Mawr
college. One or two such scholar
