SITUATION IN EUROPE

Paris, -Mar, 22. The race between
poaco, plunder and poverty is now on
with tho advent of spring.
The question of whether peace, sta
bility and reconstruction are to prevail
during tho coming months, or whether
Central Europe, at least, will be con
vulsed in a sanguinary struggle, will
soon be answered.
Bolshevist forces are known to be
concentrating on the Roumanian fron

of that newly formed government. The
Roumanians say they have definite in
formation, that? tho bolshcviki intend
to strike as oou s the weathm- be

involved in constant isolated struggles
and it is believed to ibo only a piatter
of time until the full storm ibreuks.

PENNANT AT FRESHMAN
ANNUAL GLEE PROGRAM
Armory Packed To Hear En
deavors Of Ciass Of Willamette.
It was "standing room only" at the
armory last night, long before tho
Freshman Glee program started such
an audionce as one seldom sees iu the
building, for the hearts of the public
are with the young people. Tho build
ing was beautifully and tastefully dec
orated, tho crimson and gold streamers
that spanned the auditorium contrast
ing sharply with the masses of ever
greens and ferns.
The program was of unusual excell
ence, there being in addition to the four
class songs a violin solo by Leisla Ruby;
a reading by Gene bevy and a collo
solo by Prof. John R. Sites. All those
numbers were enthusiastically roceived.
It would bo "nuff sed" if one were
to stuto that the class songs were up
to tho standard of other years; but to
the minds of the majority of the audi
ence they surpassed all past records una
efforts, showing much originality and
sentiment in construction. Superficial
ly considered, one would not detect a
great difference of quality in the four
compositions. Had the decision been
left to a popular vote of the audience
the result might have been quite dif
ferent. From a purely hiusical stand
point the Junior song should nave had
the honors' without question, while in
the matter of expressed sentiment there
seemed to be very littlo choico between
the Juniors and tho Sophomores. How
ever, when the judges had canvassed
the four songs and scored1 on wi the
three quulities words, music and rendi
tion tho Sophomore class was awarded
the pennant, the Seniors ranking sec
ond, Juniors third and Freshmen fourth.
The judges v. iio passed upon tho compo
sitions were: Words, Miss Cox, Mrs. Le
land Porter' and Mrs. Florian Von
Kschon;' music, Mrs. A. A. Schramm,
Professor T. S. Roberts. Miss Gertrude
Eakinj rendition, A. A. Schramm, H. C.
Clink and Rev. H. N. Aldrich.
Following the announcement of the
awards, the pennant a particularly
handsome one was presented by Prof.
Mi tthows, with a few fitting words of
felicitation. Following are tho words
of the winning song:
Oh Willamette safely harbored
In the hills of Oregon.
We have turned from many a battle
Gory trench, and ruined shrine
To your dear familiar presence,
That like a stur in darkness shines:
We hear tho mill stream rippling
Whero the poplar buds unfold.
We see your cordial banners'
Floating proudly as of old. '
Oh Willamette safely enshrined
In the temple of our hearts.
We shall ne'er forgot your lessons
Though life's journey take us far,
Ever slinll vour spirit guide us
Like a bright and glowing star
For we owe thee. Alma Mater,
Gratitude we scarce, can snow
For the joys that gather round us
With the days that come and go.
Qh col,cso (layg na college ways
To our hearts are ever dear
The friends we've made, the games
In memory they are doar;
So here's to old Wilametto,

Her athletes strong we hail with song,
