That members of the university staff

According to this order the university
will close March 15 if the deficiency ap-
propriation is not provided. The salary

Lindsay, financial clerk, said. This fund
now contains only enough money to pay

The only way the university could
operate beyond that time would be by
voluntary action of the faculty in staying
at their posts hoping to be paid in the

Journalism is a different * sort of a
game now from what it was when Dr.
YV. W. Phelan, head of the school of
education, was a "cub" reporter.
Phelan worked for a year, just after
hi- finished high school, on the New
York Gazette, which was established by
a man named Douglass, formerly an edi-
tcr of the New York Sun.
"I will never forget my first attempt
as a reporter," Dr. Phelan said. "There
was no one to instruct a cub reporter
how to write news, and day after day
I wrote articles which were never pub-
lished. For the first two weeks I was
One morning as I was leaving my
apartment, the rooming house next door

frightened at the first call of fire, ran

"As I was one of the first to see the
fire, I u rote the incident up and turned
it in with the headline, 'Melody lost his

at me for the first time and said, 'You're
getting there, now.' "

MAY BE RAISED
Schoolmen Not to Be Affected by
Price Crisis in Next Year in State,
Teachers salaries for the coming year
will not be lowered and in some cases
will be increased slightly, according to
Paul N. Campbell, secretary to Dr. W.
\Y. Phelan, dean of the school of educa-
tion, Wednesday. This is one of the
things the committee on recommenda-
tions learned by conference with super-
intendents at the state teachers asso-
ciation in Oklahoma City last week.
Nearly 100 students have already sign-
ed up for teaching positions for the com
ing school year, and there are now in
the office of the committee on recom-
mendations in the education building,
45 positions open. All these positions
pay between $1800 and $2500 a year
Superintendents are more anxious
than usual to secure their teachers early
and Campbell is anxious that all students
who wish to teach the coming year
should file application with the commit-
tee at once.
TO HAVE ROCK
Annual Geologists Day, March 9, to
Include Banquet, Speeches by

The date for Rock Hound day has

nounced Tuesday. The outline of the
program for the day includes a banquet
and program for geologists and alumni,
a geology open house in the afternoon
and a smoker in the evening.
The following committees for further
arrangements have been appointed : com-
mittee for banquet, John Van Dall and
Waldo Ports; committee for the ar-
rangement of the building, J. D. McClure
chairman; program committee, Donald
Braugh and Stanley Bryant; stunts com-
mittee, W. H. Hoots, John Blanchard
and V. E. Cottingham ; menu committee,
Bess Mills, chairman.

day will be made later, Bullard said, and
any suggestions as to the stunts for open

Bullard at the Oklahoma Geological
Hynd Horn, a nonsensical drama, will
be given in the university auditorium
March 9, Mrs. Bee M. Barry, secretary
to Dean Fredrik Holmberg, announced
This is the first time marionettes, or
acting dolls, have ever been seen in the
West, Mrs. Barry said. The marion-
ettes are dolls, ranging in size from-
18 inches to 3 feet. They sing, talk and
dance. Their actions on the stage are
controlled by wires which trained actors,
hidden from view, manipulate. Because
each puppet requires on individual actor
to giude his movements and to say his
speeches, there are as many actors in a
puppet play as in a regular drama, and
the acting is likewise as impressive, Mrs
Marionettes are as old as the pyra-
mids; yet like music, poetry, song and
drama, they never grow old, Mrs. Barry
said. In the past, marionette perform-
ances have been primarily for children.
But this, according to Mrs. Barry, has
been changed, and Shakespeare's "Tem-
pest" and Aristophanes' great drama.
"The Frogs," have been played by pup
pets. At present Maeterlinck's plays are
successfully produced on the puppet
stage in France, and in Italy the puppets,
act both comedy and tragedy and even
dance the Russian ballet, Mrs. Barry
Lillian Owen's production is marvel
ous in its scenic effects and unique in
the way it reveals the puppets' versatility.
Miss Owen, long-time associate of Tony
Sarg, designed and built the dolls her-
Hynd Horn is a whimsical musical
drama. It is a dramatization of a fam-
ous old English ballad which was re-
cently sung throughout America by the
Fuller Sisters, Mrs. Barry said.
In this play a king passes a law that
all his subjects must speak in rhyme.
This makes many funny situations and
nearly a tragedy. Hynd Horn, the hero,
is banished to the sea. A real storm
arises, lightening flashes, thunder roars,
and the ship tosses to and fro, and poor
Hynd Horn sings bitter songs of grief
over his lost princess. But fortune
turns, and the play closes with tinkling
music and the happy wedding of Hyad
Horn and his regained princess.

Varsity Basketeers Show Up 10*
Points Better Than Aggies After
Third Victory Friday Night
The Sooners continued their winning
streak Friday night by annexing the
third straight victory, 46 to 15, over the
Oklahoma Farmers at Stillwater. The
Aggies scored 40 points to the Sooners
142 in the three games played this sea-
son, which is a fair indication of the
comparison of the two fives.
The Aggies did their most aggressive
work in the first period but they were
unable to cope with the speedy passing
and accurate shooting of the varsity
The first half ended 19 to id. In the
second half the Sooners warmed to the
job and held the Aggies to two field
goals and one free throw.
