TO OE TOPIC OF FOUR
Women Will Have Opportunity
to Hear Lectures in Sum
Four prominent men have been
chosen to give lectures to the women
attending the physical education sum
mer school at the University. They are
Dr. Calvin White, a prominent Portland
physician who will lecture on ‘ ‘ The Op
portunities of a Physical Education
Teacher from the Physical Stand
point;” Dr. E. S. Conklin, a member of
the University faculty, who will speak
on ‘ ‘ Physical Education Activities from
the Point of View of a Psychologist;”
W. B. Butherford, superintendent of the
Eugene city schools, “The Problem of
Centralized Health Work in the Small
School System;” and Bishop Walter T.
Sumner, who will lecture on “Directed
Physical Activities a Social Safe
guard.” These are four of the special
lectures which will be given during the
summer sessions by men who are ex
perts in their particular lines of work.
Other lecturers will be secured later.
To Perfect Classes Early
Letters telling of the courses to be
offered by the v/omen ’a physical training
department in its summer school have
been sent out to county superintendents
and supervisors and already cordial
replies are eorning to Miss Mabel Cum
mings, head of the department. It is
hoped that the 'organization of the
summer school classes will be perfected
before the beginning of sessions, so
that the condensed program provided
may start on the very first morning
without any delay.
Courses offered to teachers of physi
cal education include practically every
form of physical education that may
be in demand. If there is a demand for
things not provided in the program, the
need will be met, as it is the object of
the summer school this year to give
the most condensed and valuable course
that it possibly can. Word has been
received that the new state course of
study for physical education will be
completed by the beginning of the
summer term. This will aid the depart
ment in further planning its summer
During the term, graduates of the
physical education department will give
a demonstrttion of interpretive danc
ing. No class in aesthetic dancing will
be formed unless, there is a demand.
There will be an exhibit of various
physical examination forms and in con
nection with this a demonstration of the
Leslie-Moshier Schematograph, an in
strument for tracing faulty posture.
A series of posture tracings will also
be on exhibition.
Experience to be Gained
Practical teaching experience will be
obtained when classes of children will
be taught playground games, folk-danc
ing and swimming. This will be under
the supervision and criticism of Miss
Cuminings. Two hours a week of this
work will be required.
This week, information leaflets are
being sent out by the department in
conjunction with the men’s physical
training department. Anyone desiring
them may make application to Miss
ORCHESTRA GIVES CONCERT
Musicians Offer Program Requiring
The University orchestra gave a pro
gram in the Villard hall at the Univer
sity Sunday afternoon, which showed
the ambition of the players to be able
to play those selections composed by
the best masters. The best number of
the program was the ballet music from
Faust, played in light, delicate rhythm.
A feature of the program was that
Professor Robert Louis Barron conduct
ed the whole program without a score,
a thing rarely attempted with an ama
teur musical organization.
Miss Eleanor Lee’s singing was char
acterized by a full rich tone, her inter
pretation of the selection from Samson
and Delilah being especially effective,
though the support in the accompani
ment was not all it should have been.
The cello solo by Harrison Deve
reaux, though good, was overtopped by
the volume of the orchestra accompani
ment, which, however, in places har
monized beautifully with the leading
instruments, showing the possibilities
of the selection.
The last number on the program, and
one which always charms an audience,
was the selection from William Tell,
for the flute notes which come out so
clearly in the middle of the piece as
played by Frank Badollet gave the at
mosphere of the mountains and wooded

Lenten season, but the rest of the year

events.. Every week-end is busy, even
more so than in former years. Students
are studying during the week and de
voting the week'ends to pleasure.
