'Cover’ Contest
Closes Today
Today is the last day to enter
the combined contest for Emerald
Cover Girl and “Miss Photogenic,”
Annamae Winship, Emerald busi
ness manager, announced late last
“This year each house may have
as many contestants as they wish
by merely having their women
have their pictures taken today,”
Miss Winship emphasized.
To Be Announced March 8
The woman selected to be the
Emerald Cover Girl and the one
chosen as “Miss Photogenic,” will
be announced in the spring issue
of the Emerald which is scheduled
for March 8. The cover girl will
have a full-page picture on the
front of the large issue.
Stating that the cover girl will
not necessarily be chosen from the
entrants in the “Miss Photogenic”
contest, the Emerald business
manager said, “in all probability
the girl will be selected from the
contest entries since in this way
it will be possible to discover a
coed whom we know has definite
photographic qualities.”
Entries in the contests should
go down to the Bell Studio and
pay their dollar and have their

John Charles Thomas Concert
Finds Baritone Tense, Effective
By Betty Bennett Cramer
Illustrating a voice that is more
appropriate for songs of modern
character rather thon those of the
classics, John Charles Thomas pre
sented a varied program to a ca
pacity crowd in McArthur Court
Thursday evening. In his earlier
numbers Mr. Thomas showed a
lack of freedom which became less
noticeable in the moije popular
selections. Always his diction was
remarkably clear. His most out
standing number was “Lord Ran
dal,” a dramatic ballad set to mu
sic by Cyril Scott. Clear pianissi
mos, dramatic presentation, and
perfect diction all contributed to
the complete artistry of his inter
Opening Tense .
The opening number, “La Pro
cession” by Franck, showed a cer
tain. tenseness which made some
of his higher notes hazy. In ‘‘Me
Suis Mise En Danse” he loosened
up a little to the lilting rhythm
of Bax’s arrangement. “L’Ata
besse” was noticeable chiefly for
the exquisite quality of his soft
In “An Die Leier” Mr. Thomas
clearly portrayed the lyric and ro
mantic nature of Schubert’s mu
sic. Much tenderness was illustrat
ed in “Der Tod und der Jungling”
“Nacht und Traume,” and" Schwes
terlein.” In the latter, this re
viewer was almost moved to tears
by his effective piannissimo. An
amazing control of his breathing
was shown in the spirited" “O
Liebliche Wangen” of Brahms.

ADS Initiates
Walking Billboards
No, another depression has
not struck the Oregon campus
reducing members of its stu
dent body to advertising local
business establishments on the
streets. The several young men
pacing the paths and by-ways
adorned with brightly-colored
placards plugging the Falcon,
Eddie's Flowers, and a good
share of all Eugene’s “ye olde
shoppes” have another motive
tucked in the back of their
cerebral space. Their task
comes in the vise of perform
ing all the initiation prerequi
sites of Alpha Delta Sigma,
men’s advertising honorary.
This idea, while definitely
a brightening factor to the
campus dinring the drab win
ter months, is proving rather
bunglesome for the neophytes
especially upon approaching
doorways or entering crowded
campus hangouts. (For some
real fun this afternoon, why
not watch one of these fellows
attempting to board a city
bus? ) After all, these walking
billboards do need more space
than would usually be allotted
to them.
Meanwhile, keep in mind
that it’s all in the spirit of
fun (plus initiation) and the
majority of the poster-packers
aren’t doing this sort of thing
for a living—at least not at
the present.
