Our fine friend Mr. Hinds
(And other fascist minds)
Have said some things which seem to me in error.
The rankest of these cracks
Is that a man who lacks
All mercy is to evil quite a terror.
We know this Franco blade ;
Has really made the grade
At killing of his foes with knife and rifle.
But more than martial might
Is needed to make right,
And Franco's manufactured but a trifle.
This Hitler hack, we grant
Has mastered how to rant
Concerning the advantages of order.
But if this same guy tried
To take US for a ride,
He knows blamed well we’d boot him o’er the border.
He s got a~ velvet glove,
A mustached leer of love,
lint underneath there curls the iron fist.
In this land you can talk;
In Apain you walk the chalk,
Or v‘';tirish—he you reb or royalist.
Now :Mr. Hinds, it's you
Ami all vour hoy friends too
WJwHl one day cause old Freedom's star to tumble;
And; when a reign of strife
Ha> circumscribed YOUlv life.
We bet. by gum, you’ll be the first to grumble.
So heed this brief harangue.
And join the liberal gang
And help us all prepare a little place,
Where, with a Hit of luck,
W e ll one day part the muck
And pat it down right in Der brancos face.

llotween the art museum and Susan Campbell ball is au
iiid, green, dilapidated bench. 1 radition reserves that bench for
oudv those students who have attained the rank of senior. It is
their privilege, and their's alone, to make use of the bench
which has seated seniors since 1910.
It was in that vear that the graduating class decided its
gift to the Cniversity should be something just especially for
.ill graduating classes—a bench reserved for their use. At one
time it was placed under the nicotine tree. Later it was
removed to a shade spot in front of the old library, now l'cnton
hall. As far as we are concerned the bench s journeys were com
peted. when it was moved to the present site back of the art
Now to some it may seem to be just an ordinary old bench
not worth all this fuss made when a couple of underclassmen
were caught cujoving a siesta on it. J’ut to the seniors that
bench is a svmbol oi having reached that last mile—the last
stretch before graduation. It belongs to them. And next year
it will remain in the same role tor the class of 46.
Misuse of the senior bench, we think, sums up the whole
question of loss of tradition on this campus. We are hoping
such a violation doesn’t happen again because in future years
some of our best memories of the Oregon campus will be the
long standing traditions that governed our way of life.
On not dismiss that sacred bench with a mere flip of the
hand for it represents four years of hard, unceasing work.
M/iuv haw been the seniors who have made use of its spacious.
.Although hard, seat. Let's keep it just for them.

ON THE CLASSICAL SIDE
By BETTY JANE BENNETT
Though familiar to most listen
ers as the theme song for “The
Lone Ranger,” the “William Tell
Overture” is a world famous com
position in its own right. It has
recently been recorded under the
baton of the great maestro, Arturo
Toscanini, in a handsome picture
album. One experiences the splen
dor of the Alps, the fury of a
mountain storm, and the tranquil
ity of a peaceful pasture, leading
up to the thrilling “Finale.” It is
played brilliantly by the NBC Sym
James Melton, tenor, has fin
ished a beautiful recording of
“Strange Music” from the musical
production “Song of Norway,”
based on the life of Edward Grieg.
It is a single record, with “There’s
Beauty Everywhere” on the other
In 01d Vienna
A springtime musical treat is
the recent recording of Strauss
waltzes entitled “King of the
Waltz.” It includes such favorites
as “Emperor Waltz,” “Lorelei,”
“Wine, Women and Song,” “Sou
thern Roses,” and “Die Fleder
maus,” and is played by the Lon
don Philharmonic orchestra under
the direction of Walter Goehr.
Students who enjoy new and
unusual music should not miss
“Odeon” which will be given Mon
day, April 23. Parks Wightman,
mentioned by Jim in the column to
the right, will present his “Prelude
No. 8" written for two clarinets,
oboe and violin. Marge Folsom’s
song “Summer Sun” and piano
number “Theme and Variations”
will be included. Two short num
bers by Edna Fisher entitled “Min
uet,” and “Song Without Words,”
and Louis Vogler's spicy “Spanish
Minute Dance" are also on the pro
gram. All these “composers” are
students in the music school and
their works deserve attention.

ON THE JAZZ SIDE
By JIM WINDUS
I was very sbrry that we were
not able to hold the jazz lecture
last Friday, but after talking it
over with Mr. Franchere, decided
to cancel it. It would not have
been very appropriate to hold a
public function of this type so soon
after the untimely death of our
president. Ted Hallock was disap
pointed also, because he did not
know when he would be able to
get down this way again. I am try
ing, however, to set a date for an
other lecture in the near future,
so watch this column for more in
Friday afternoon we did hold a
private session up at George
Carey’s house. George can really
be classified as a true lover of fine
jazz, for his record collection is
tops, his bands of ’41 and ’42 were
tops, anc^ he is always ready for
a session. Have him tell you about
that session out at El Capitan last
But more about this session.
Parks Whiteman was on trumpet.
He was a sideman with Alveno
Rey, and has played with Cliff
Mallicoat’s group here. On bary
sax we had Hoyt Franehere, who
really made with the kicks. Gene
Leo made with the ivories. In my
estimation, and I am not alone,
Gene is the finest 88'er to hit Eu
gene for many moons. Really fine.
At the drums Ted Hal lock was
knocking himself out, and us too.
Really plays fine rhythm. Sid You
man sat in on clary, and really
showed us a lot. Sid is the Sidney
of “Sidney's Photograph shop” on
13th. (Paid ad). He is from Chi
cago, and plays a fine jazz clary.
Is also a member of 802, largest
musicians local in the country, and
the most influential.
The 10 boys played some of the
fine older standards and the later
stuff, interspersed with true jazz
standards. Oops, space is short, so
more next week.

Star-Bound by Litterio Farsaci;
Golden Atom Publication.
Star-Bound is not a master
piece. Many of the poems lack pol
ish, and some are even faulty in.
their mechanical construction. The
book is, however, worth reading.
The brochure that Mr. Farsaci
has written will prove of interest
because it says many of the little
things that are left unsaid in or
dinary life. He has a typical out
look on life, and the ideas, desires,
and dislikes he expresses could
easily apply to any one of us.
Judging by his poetry, I don’t
believe Mr. Farsaci is an experi
enced writer. He seems to
trouble with rhyme and meter, and
at times he is carried away bv
himself. His work shows promise,
however, and in time will take on
the footsure air that is the mark
of a good poet.
