    Joseph James,
Negro Tenor,
To Give Concert
Joesph James, negro tenor, will
appear in concert Tuesday, Octo
ber 16 in the school of music audi
torium. The program is being
sponsored by members of Phi Beta,
women's national fraternity of
music and' speech, for benefit of
the Phi Beta scholarship fund.
Joseph James has made his voice
what it is today by hard work. He
lias been singing since he was
twelve years old but hard circum
stances forced him into many by
paths—bv-paths labelled “hod
carrier,” “pick-and-shovel worker,”
“waiter,” “bus-boy,” “Pullman car
cleaner,” and “factory worker.”
Dr. John H. Stehn, acting dean
of the school of music, speaks
highly of the Negro tenor. He
says, “I had the pleasure of hear
ing Joseph James in recital at
Mill's college in 1944, summer. Al
though his voice is not large, it is
of excellent quality and his sin
cerity, artistry, and excellent rep
ertoire brought the enthusiastic
acclaim of the audience. The mem
bers of the Budapest String quar
tet heard the recital and were very
complimentary in their remarks.
I feel that Phi Beta is rendering a
distinct service to the students in
the school of music and to music
■Rovers of this community in bring
ing Mr. James to Eugene.”
Excellent recommendations were
also given from the music faculty
at Stanford, Mills college, and the
University of California where re
cent concerts have been held.
Both the alumnae and active
chapters are sponsoring the con

Nets 33-7 Score for Oregon
By Tom Riley
Thei-e was no doubt in any mind last Saturday afternoon who
won the ball game, with both the statistics and the' 33 to 7 score
in favor of the green and lemon. The expression, “where’s Jake?”
still held true against the Vandals from Idaho. Every time Ore
gon’s Jake carried the ball the whole Idaho team was looking for
the streak of "Leicht.” Although Lcicht had only 25 minutes
of playing time credited to him, it was enough time to help put
three touchdowns across.
The first touchdown came 3 minutes after the game had start
ed. Leicht threw a 6 point pass to left end Warberg, who cap
tured it on his own two and stepped across. Bill Abbey missed his
place kick next, and the two teams took their respective places
for the kick-off!

been determined. Until notice of
the end of the strike is received,
thereVill be no buses available to

! Puddles Lacking for Puddles'
“I’m disappointed because there
were no puddles to wade in at Sat
urday’s game, and how is a gal
going to live up to a name of
“Puddles” if there are none pro
vided?” asked the Oregon Ducks’
new mascot with a hiss and a
couple of quacks.
Traditionally all Oregon stu
dents have web-feet, but the illus
trious Miss Puddles didn’t have to
develop them after arriving on
the campus. She came via an edi
torial in the Register Guard from
Karl Orloss’s place on Lake Drive.
Incidentally, he gets two tickets
to the Washington game.
When asked how she got her
name, this counterpart of Daisy
Duck explained, “When you think
of rain, you think of puddles, and
when you think of puddles, you
think of ducks, so (quack) what
could I do?” However, Jim Mc
^Clintoch and Bill Gross, her offi
cial custodians at Mill lodge, had
thought of names sdch as Angleita
and Myrtle until they looked at
the bottom of Puddles’ box and
nothing but Puddles would do.
Although the mill race which is
handy to the house she lives in
would literally be a duck’s para
dise, Fuddles has not been allowed
to use it at her leisure as she
might head for her former home.
She has to be content with dab
bling around in a cake pan at pres
Her eating habits are not quite
like other students. Her diet is
greens and specially prepared duck
food. The fellows think that after
she has gotten a little more world
ly wise, she’ll demand a meal
ticket and perhaps get used to
such delicacies as hamburgers and
No alarm clocks are necessary
in Mill Lodge as residents are
awakened by a loud quacking and
hissing. The .first night Bill and
Jim had her in their room, but
complications ensued and it was
[necessary to oust her to a re
frigerator box.
| Other members of the house
looked forward to her coming with
visions of fried or boiled duck
eggs. Puddles refuses to lay any
eggs and the fellows have to be
content with ordinary hen fruit.
At the rally last Friday night
the new mascot made her debut.
At Saturday’s game, she was
paraded before the grandstands on
a. specially designed leash by the
rally squad.
Jordis Benke, Pi Phi, donated
the harness which once belonged
to a dog named Smedley.
Jim and Bill plan to make the
mascot a traditional affair like the
Beaver at Oregon State.
