Singer’s Clear
Diction Lauded
Outstandingly clear diction and
precise tone were the outstanding
features of the vocal recital given
by Marilyn Miller, soprano, in the
music school auditorium Tuesday
evening. Miss Miller’s accom
plished treatment of her classic
group was especially noticeable in
“Care Selve” by Handel, and Mo
zart’s “Voi, che Sapete.” The for
mer carried an almost reverent
feeling through its ease of presen
tation and flowing lines. The Mo
zart aria was equally free.
The Schumann group, opening
with “Im Wunderschonen Monat
Mai” again combined excellent dic
tion and an easy, relaxed style.
Though lacking somewhat in vol
ume and power, Miss Miller’s per
formance was a polished one; she
carefully attended to the details of
her songs—the phrasing and dy
namics. Outstanding in this group
was “Sonntags am Rhein.” Her
stage presence was excellent, as
the audience felt she was singing
i to them individually.
Interpretation Accurate
Miss Miller’s interpretation of
the whimsical “Over the Rim of
the Moon” by Michael Head was
sung simply but with accuracy. “A
Blackbird Singing” and “Nocturne”
of this song cycle were outstand
ing. The soprano displayed excel
lent high notes in Branscombe’s
"The Morning Wind” although cer

Sun Serenade
To Harmonize
With Mardi Gras
The Sunlight Serenade, popular
feature of past Junior Weekends,
will be presented this year under
the direction of Maxine Cady,
sophomore in music. The Serenade
is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Sunday,
and will be held out-of-doors on
the grounds behind the mu3ie
Several new ideas have been add
ed to the program, Miss Cady said
today. For the first time, the
Serenade will be in accordance with
the Junior Weekend theme, with
the entire program woven around
a Mardi Gras street scene. Pre
ceding the musical entertainment,
Queen Joann and her court will be
presented to the audience.

Canadian Film
Scheduled Changed
Students are invited to attend
the showing of four films on Can
ada Thursday at 7:30 or 9 p.m. in
207 Chapman hall.
“Iceland on the Prairies,” the
story of the Icelandic migration to
Canada; “Heroes of the Atlantic,”
describing the Canadian navy’s re
sponsibility in World War II and
the life and work of the Canadian
navy and merchant marine; “Hot
Ice,” a hockey game between the
New York Rangers and the Mon
treal players; and the March of
Time special film, “Canada,” are
the four films billed.
The time of the free show was
changed to Thursday night be
cause of the Rise Stevens concert
originally scheduled for Wednesday

Answer Depends
On Manpower
“We're willing to play football
anytime, if and when we can get
the manpower to field a team,”
Anse Cornell, University athletic
manager, said Tuesday in response
to requests from students aroused
by the recent announcements that
Oregon State college, Washington
State college and the University of
Idaho were replacing football on
their 1945-46 athletic program. The
University of California, Univer
sity of Southern California, UCLA,
and the University of Washington
are continuing football, which due
to the presence of navy trainees on
their campuses, was not interrupt
ed by the war.
Beginning today with the publi
cation of a questionnaire to be
filled out by all prospective foot
ball players, the Emerald is launch
ing a survey of athletic manpower
on the campus and a campaign to
urge Oregon men to turn out for
football next fall.
Campus interest in football has
been high and when the athletic
board found it necessary to drop
intercollegiate football due to the
wartime manpower shortage pro
tests from students who did not
fully understand the situation were
numerous. Now, with the possibil
ity of football returning in view,
the chief obstacle to fielding a
team next fall is still the problem
of finding suitable material for the
coaches to work with.
When the army specialized train
ing program sent several hundred
men to this campus, a team was
built up and the games played
with visiting GI teams were en
thusiastically supported by the
campus. These games, however,
did not draw much interest from
The Beavers declared recently
that they were determined to play
football, regardless of the decisions
of other schools in the conference,
even if OSC would have to confine
their playing to intramural scuffl
ing. According to Cornell, the at
tendance at intramural games at.
the University would not warrant
training a team and the wear and
tear on varsity equipment.
If the athletic board can be con
vinced that there will be enough
men on the campus next fall to
warrant a $50,000 expense budget
for football, chances are that Hay
ward field will again break out in
pre-war crowds, colors, and excite
ment. Football depends on Oregon
men. The Emerald survey is an at
tempt to estimate the number and
potentialities of men Cornell and
the athletic board can count on.
All men returning to the University fall term, 1945, and
who are willing to turn out for football, are requested to
fill in the following blank and turn it in to the Emerald
managing editor’s office or the box in the Co-op.
