In playing the records from the
libraries of Dr. Leavitt O. Wright,
of the Romance languages depart
ment, and Miss Irene Greenbaura,
of Eugene high school, Miss Eliza
beth DeCou explained many details
about Mexican music. She, together
with Miss Margaret McGee, had
spent the summer in Mexico.
The first group consisted of mu
sic by the Mariachis, or cowboy
singers. They sing as well as they
play their guitars, violins, and
unique, hand-made horns. Women
sometimes sing with such groups,
but do not play. The Jarabe Ta
pitio, national dance, is supposed
to make everyone in Mexico dance,
and many of those students and
town people who heard the Mu Phi
Epsilon-sponsored concert, seemed
ready to do the same.

which might be heard in Mexico
late at night or early in the morn
ing, Miss DeCou explained how a
young lady should receive a sere
nade. Turn on the lights to show
you are awake. Then turn off the
lights, and peek out to see who is
there. Never throw roses from the
balcony, however; you might be

Woven baskets, gay jackets
made bright with embroidery, Mex

colored rugs, pottery and jewelry,
and quaint headdresses caught the
eyes of listeners as they strolled
about the room when the concert
was finished at 5. Mrs. Hyde col

To avoid sleeping porch sniffles
