The lack ot attendence on the
part, of the faculty of OAC at fhe
recent state oratorical contest was
the occasion of much; criticism. All
other Colleges were Represented 'by
rone or more of their faculty, but
not one was . in attendence f rpm
OAC a fact, that the people abroad
comment upon. Of course the dis
tance of the contest from home
might have had something to j do
with thi9, but,lhe writer had oc
casion to" Obsetve'tjaat .last year
when the "contest was held" almost
at our door the members ot jthe
Faculty who are'looked to, to take
more pr less interest in this depart
ment -of college activities was jnot
in evidence. Many ideas coulq be
gained that the professor could j
suggest to future aspirants! for;
forensic fame from OAC. One
never ? gams rmuch by remaining
within ones own little circle.; The
man or woman, who does the most
good is the one who associates with
others and from their experiences
invokes new ideas into his or ! her
own methods. !
These remarks are not intende
for the faculty as a whole, because
there are some who are not expect
ed to keep in touch with this branch
of work, had they the time. It is
to be hoped that hereafter more
of the faculty who are in tOJch
with this branch of work may be
seen at , these gatherings. . i

IN A NEW ROLE.
How Women are Crowding Men out of
Positions This one is Theatrical
A young woman, traveling as
advance agent for a theatrical com
pany invaded Corvallis Saturday,
and thereby afforded illustration of
how woman is crowding the stern
er sex out of positions of which he
was formerly the sole guardian.
She was Miss Florence L. Newman
who came as the advance agent of
The Bonnie Bnei Bush com
pany, whicn appears in tne upera
House Thursday evening. She is
from New York City with head
quarters at the Knickerbocker, the
base of operations for almost an,
infinite number of traveling com
panies. She is 26 years of age and
has been traveling six years as an
advance agent. She is a very
sightly; person, well dressed and
according to the statement oi locaL
people was well able to drive at
good bargain for the people she-
She travels about a week ahead
of her company, and .arranges the .
preliminaries as to hotel accommo
dations, transportation details, bag
gate contracts, bill posting. and
kindred duties. The loneliness of
the life, throwing her constantly a,
stranger among stranger:!, is her
chief objection to . the business, but
this" she says is atoned for by ther
fact that it gives her remunerative:
and easy employment and a wide
range of travel. :. She was in Cor
vallis a day, leaving for Albany on
the evening' train. In' timet it
seems as if women will hold posi
tions in every' walk of life, barring
of course those in which physical .
phase is largely involved; : She is
fast demonstrating that she has the
'capacity, and that is what the em
ployer is looking for.
; !The Bonnie Brier Bush" which ?
Miss Newman represents, is a New
Vork. organization with a play
dramatized from , the well known
tO)k ofjthe same name, Augustus
Thomas, one of the greatest play
wrights in America being one of
the dramatists. It is a drama much
after the order of "Kerry Gow"
which was recently produced at the
Opera House with such satisfact
