D. D. Rossell to Present Concert
Tonight in Music Auditorium
Featured in tonight’s concert at
the music school auditorium will be 1
tenor Denton D. Rossell, assistant
professor of voice.
Rossell, whose performance is
scheduled to begin at 8:15 p.m.,
came to the Oregon campus this

sity in Tennessee. He has concert
ized and done radio singing as well
as operatic singing in “Opera In
Student Accompanies
Accompanied by Sylvia Killman,
senior in music, the voice teacher
will begin his program with four
numbers by Handel—“Silent Wor
ship,” “Coihe and Trip It,” “Gentle
Airs, Melodious Strains” and “Let
Me Wander not Unseen.”
Schumann’s “Dichterliebe” will
follow. This composition is a song
cycle containing 16 songs set to
poems by Henrich Heine. Although
the audience will probably be fam

piece is seldom heard in its entirety,
said Rossell.

Another cycle, “Songs of the
Nursery” by Moussorgsky, consists
of seven songs centered about
events in the life of a child. The
seven titles are “Tell Me a Story,”

“Child’s Prayer at Bedtime’ and
“The Hobby-horseman.’

put on by the school of music and

Theta Sigma Phi Tea
To Name Miss Vogue
During Fashion Show
“Miss Vogue of 1948" will be named November 13 at the

and veterans’ wives, campus women, and high school seniors.
The fashion show will feature clothes for all phases of
Democrat Cites
Food to Europe
As Peace Need
Americans should think of help
ing feed Europe as a method of
self-preservation, stressed Mrs.
Chase Going Woodhouse, former
congresswoman and at present
women’s director of the Democrat
ic national committee, in an in
formal address Wednesday after
noon at Alumnae hall, Gerlinger.
Discussing the topic, “Food or
Famine,’’ Mrs. Woodhouse said,
“The war has taught us that it is
one world in which we live, and it
will either be one world or none.”
No Food, No Work
She explained that without food,
Europe will not be able to mine
coal, increase production, and
make money with which to buy
food. “Hungry and cold people are
not logical people,” she said. “Hun
ger breeds unrest, the basic ele
ment of war,” she stated.
Mrs. Woodhouse believes that
aid to Europe is closely intertwined
with high prices. “If we don't check
high prices, the purchasing power
will decrease, and a surplus will
pile up,” she illustrated. “The
eventual outcome will be a depres
sion, and we will not be economi
cally able to aid Europe,” she said.
The speaker denied that prices
are high because we are sending
food abroad. She referred to our
war-time lend-lease program when
50 per cent of this country’s pro
duction was devoted to war uses.
"A good system of price control
kept prices down then,” Mrs.’
Woodhouse stated.
Mrs. Woodhouse was sponsored
by the public affairs committee of
the YWCA.
Lovers Lament; 'O Where Can It Be?'
Now you see it, now you don’t!
Possibly the most unused piece
of furniture around the quad is the
“loving bench,” theoretically owned
by Alpha Chi Omega sorority. The
three-piece concrete bench stands
19 inches high, is 5 feet long, and
IV2 feet wide. It weighs approxi
mately 300 pounds.
Recently it wandered from home,
led astray by members of a local
fraternity whose actions were in
accordance with a tradition that
has been attached to the bench
since it was willed to the house by
an ever-loving senior class, some
time prior to 1932.
From that time on, it has spent
more time in fraternity house base
ments than holding Alpha Chis and
their ardent beaus. At least twice
a year, the bench has been stolen
and initialed by some fraternity.
Halloween of ’39 the SAEs car
ried it off. Two or three days later
the Alpha Chi upperclassmen sent
their pledges to retrieve same. Af
ter a successful burglary of the
SAE house, the dauntless pledges
were returning triumphantly, when
a minor catastrophe occurred. A
tired volunteer dropped her edge of
the cement slab, which shattered
the toe of Lavene McCollum, now
Mrs. Fred Konschot of Springfield,
Oregon. The bench, however, re
mained unscathed.
Six years ago the men of Phi
Kappa Psi purloined the seat and
autographed it. Before another fra
ternity could change this situation,
the war intervened. Throughout
the war years the bench remained
in the Alpha Chi back yard, but due
to the man shortage saw little or
no “pigging.”
Quickly Renewed
The tradition was quickly re
newed after the war by the Betas,
who removed the Phi Psi insignia
and replaced it with their own. At
this point the Kappa Sigs proved
that they too had a paint brush.
The summer of '46 the wandering
bench found its way to the front
lawn of the Alpha Chi O house
where it spent the summer, not by
choice but because none of the
alums were strong enough to carry
it to the back yard.
Disappeared Again
The SAEs once more turned their
art loose on the toe-crusher, and
again the Kappa Sigs retaliated.
Three weeks ago it turned up on
the Sigma Chi front porch. They
were removing all traces of former
possessors when Monday night it
disappeared. Rumor has it that it
is now stowed in a brown and white
house near 11th and Alder.

Donations Low
As Drive Opens
The WSSF drive gained momen
tum yesterday with the receipts of
$179.73, bringing the total to
$287.24. Receipts are far below last
year’s total which surpassed $2000.
With the goal set at $1 per stu
dent and only three days left in
the drive, a proverbial “shot in the
arm” is needed, according to Chair
man Mart Pond.
Returns Not Complete
He partially attributed the small
total to the fact that not all house
representatives have submitted
funds to Drive Treasurers Mar
guerite Johns and Oliver Larson.
Collections are received daily at
4 p.m. at the campus YWCA.
