James Mott Arrives to Coach
University Players’ Offer
ing on February 16.
.Tames Mott, who coached the 1016
class play, “Arizona,” and directed the
University Flayers’ initial dramatic of
fering, “The Fortune Hunter,” last
year, arrived in Eugene yesterday. He
will begin reharsals for “The Dictator”
Richard Harding Davis’ internationally
famous comedy, which will be the second
rnnual production for the University
Flayers. The first rehearsal will be in
Guild hall this evening. The play will
be given February 16.
“The Dictator” is a melo-dramatic
farce comedy. Never heard of such a
thing? Well, nobody else ever did, until
Richard Harding Davis created it. “The
Dictator” is a brand new kind of dra
matic composition. It stands all alone.
Perhaps that accounts for its having
scored the longest continuous run, both
in New York and London, of any play
ever written, and perhaps that is why

William Collier, admittedly the world’s
loremost legitimate comedian, made the
bggrst hit of his career in it. "The Dic
tator” has been called a melo-dramatic
farce comedy because, while the situa
tions are farcical in the extreme, and
v hile its famous author has injected a
laugh into practically every line of the
play, the plot itself is as exciting as the
mellowest melodrama that ever thrilled
a gallery-god. It combines the punch,
the laugh, and the thrill so cleverly that
it "gets” right from the opening scene,
end never lets go until the drop of the
curtain at the end of the third act.
The cast of "The Dictator” is a large
one, and will include all the University
Players. It will also include two armies,
an American army and a Spanish
American army, which will be drafted
from the .high school.
Men’s Club to Make Home Ap
pearance in Varied Program.
Three Do Solo Work and Stunts
Are Exceptionally Good
Says Director.
A varied program from popular num
bers to the heaviest of opera will be
given by the Men’s Glee Club February
22 when they give their annual concert
at the Rex theatre.
“The club is well balanced this year,
especially in the tenor parts,” R. H. Ly
man, director, says. “The stunts are es
pecially good. The burlesque on Grand
Opera proved to be a regular scream on
the Coos Bay trip. The costuming of the
members of the club as fairies and young
ladies helped out the stunt wonderfully.
Algie Weinheimer. Robert Scarce, Gra
ham Smith, Curtis Beach and Bobby
Burns play the parts in this stunt.”
Merle Moore and Bill Morrison pull off
a sleight of hand performance called Op
tical Illusions” and Russell Ralston and
Jerome Ilolzman perform ns their stunt
“Syncopated Spasms in Song.”
John Black, William Vawter and pos
sibly Curtis Peterson- will do the solo
work for the club. Instrumental solos
will be given by Robert Scearce on the
violin and Bobby Burns on the piano.
“Very little practice has been done
since the trip,” said Mr. Lyman, “but
they will begin again with the beginning
< f the semester. The club is much better
than last year.”
The members of the Men’s Glee club
this year are: First tenors, Algie Wein
heimer, Warren Edwards, Harvey Mad
den, William Morrison, Dolph Phipps,
Jerome Holeman.
Second tenors: Russell Ralston, Merle
Moore, Robert Scearce, James Vance,
Graham Smith.
Baritones: Lewis Bond, Harry Mills,
Franklin Folts, William Vawter, Ray
mond Burns.
Basses: Walter Kennon, Curtis Bench,
Irving Rowe, John Black, Herald White.

Men’s Physical Department
Aims to Make Sports a
One-Third of the Men Enrolled
Go Out for Different Inter
collegiate Games.
Athletics for everyone, rather than just
victories in intercollegiate sports, is
the ideal of the physical training de
partment for men of the University of
Oregon. 15
“The aim of athletics should be recre
ation,” says Bill Hayward, director of
physical training for the University.
“College students are too apt to overdo
the thing by specializing on one event.
They become lop sided. It is the inten
tion of the department of athletics here
in the University to give every fellow an
equal chance to get the thing he most
needs in bodily development.”
Figures from the department of phy
sical training show a total enrollment
of 310 men in the various branches of
intercollegiate sports. Of this number,
a large pei^entage participate in more
than one intercollegiate sport, thus bring
ing the actual number considerably low
Track claims the largest number of en
thusiasts of any one branch of athletics
in the University. Eighty-one men have
signed up for the events in track. Six
ty-five are signed up for basketball,
49 enrolled for varsity football. 35 for
soccer, 30 for wrestling, and 50 signi
fied their preference for the milder par
suit of golf.
Intercollegiate sports include nearly
one-third of the entire student body of
934. Men who do not enroll in some
branch of intercollegiate athletics are
required to take special gymnasium
exercises. \
Intramural athletics includes the major
portion of men in the University. Inter
fraternity basketball. during winter
months, furnishes exercise for a larger
number of men participating in intra
mural sports. Mr. Hayward is certain
that there are nearly twice as many as
are turning out for varsity teams.
Certain very desirable moral habits are
acquired, Mr. Hayward believes, through
abstinence from use of stimulants, such
as tobacco, during the training seasons.
Clean and regular habits are insisted
upon by both Trainer Hayward and
Coach Bezdek, of the men on varsity
teams. Coach Bezdek attributes the
success of the Oregon eleven over
Pennsylvania largely to his rigid enforce
ment of clean living rules.
“Every man on my team was a speci
men of physical and mental power typi
cal of the West,” said Coach Bezdek re
cently. "We showed the East that we
have the stuff out here.”
C. A. Gregory to Teach in Educational
C. A. Gregory, of the University of
Iowa, arrived in. Eugene Thursday morn
ing to assume his duties in the Educa
tional department when school opens on
The snow-storm which delayed Mr.
Gregory’s train for <32 hours was the
same that delayed Dr. F. C. Ayer who
is going to the University of Iowa to
take up his place there.
Mr. Gregory will give two of Dr.
Ayer’s courses in principles of educa
tion and elementary curricula, and Mr.
F. L. Stetson’s course in experimental
psychology. He will also give a course
in experimental pedagogy and experi
mental psychology in Portland every Fri
day night.
Mr. Gregory is a graduate of Indiana
University and has had wide experience
in the school work, having the superin
tendency of the schools in Wabash Min
nesota and Brownsburg. Indiana. For
two years he was professor of educa
tion in Parson’s College, Iowa. His
specialty is school administration and
school statistics.
“I am very much impressd with the
situation in Oregon” says Mr. Gregory.
Mrs. Grigory and my daughter Helen
will join me within a month’s time.”

It’s A Beauty
First-Year Men at University
Weigh 142 Pounds.
Bill Hayward’s Measurements
Show Typical Oregon Fresh
man Is Physically Fit.
Tlu> average age of first-year men at
tending the University of Oregon is 10
years and 8 months. The typical Oregon
first-year man is a splendid specimen of
manhood. He weighs 142% pounds and
stands five feet, nine and one-half inches
in height.
In every respect, he measures up fav
orably to the ideal of the United States
government in its examination for ap
pointment to West Point or Annapolis.
Each first year man entering the uni
versity is given a very complete physi
cal examination soon after registration
by Bill Hayward, director of the depart
ment of physical training. His weight,
height, and dozens of other measure
ments are taken and recorded. His
sight, hearing, heart, and lungs are test
ed, and after that, he is stood against a
chart that resembles a checker board and
his picture is snapped.
The purpose of the examination is to
find the student’s strong and weak
points. He is carefully advised as to the
kind of exercise he should take in order
to remedy his defect . * Mr. Hayward
keeps in close touch with the men of the
University during their four year course
and carefully observes their physical im
provement. He believes in making ath
letic training a daily habit.
“Unless by athletics, the student forms
the habit of exercising daily, he has not
accomplished what he should,” says Mr.
Hayward. “The trouble with Americans
is that they are put over emphasis on
athletics. They do not exercise for the
love of exercising.”
The University gymnasium is a splen
did place for the cripple, whether he has
a weak heart, a poor pair of lungs, or
a generally impoverished system. The
department of athletics gives special at
tention to those with serious physical
faults. Almost every form of athletic
training, except rowing, is provided by
the University. No large enough body
of water for college rowing is access
aide. but pleasant recreation for students
is afforded by canoeing on the mill
stream near the campus. ,
The most remarkably beautiful views
ci' the Grand Canyon ever photographed
are shown in “God’s Crucible”—besides
the plot is filled with thrills and bits of
character sketches that are delightful.
