Juniors And Seniors Reported
In Poorer Condition Than
At First Of Year
Reports from the physical educa
tion department state that the spring
physical tests for women are practi
cally finished. Decided improvement
has been noticed in the freshmen
women, said Miss Mabel Cummings,
head of the women’s physical educa
tion department. It is a rule in the
University that a complete physical
examination be given all freshman
and sophomore women upon their
entrance to the University' in the
fall, and another such test to be giv
en in the spring, so any change in
the girl’s condition can be noticed.
Although the physical education de
partment has as yet no definite data
to prove the statement, it is thought
that the recent tests show a decided
improvement in the freshman girls,
not quite such favorable results in
the sophomores, and a decided poorer
conditions among the junior and the
senior girls. This is most probably
due, said Miss Cummings, to the
fact that freshman girls are more
carefluly guarded by rules, and that
their hours are more regular, and
their social functions and activities
Physical tests are now conducted
in all schools, universities and col
leges that are at all prominent. It is
the tendency in the country to cut
down these tests to the simplest, and
do away practically with the tape
measure tests and resort to the func
tional. The physical examinations
given at the University of Oregon
are among the most thorough, and
complete of any given in the country,
said Miss Cummings. These tests at
Oregon are conducted for three prin
cipal reasons, all designed as a bene
fit to the women students, and their
present and future health. The first
reason, Miss Cummings said, is to get
a general physical inventory of a
person, to find whether she is physi
cally strong enough to take college
work, and to determine if she is safe

| New Rules Framed To Govern
Campus Living Organizations |
% iani! ... '!miiii!!iii!iia!minii|]mmii!iiiiiiiifflii!iiiiiiiii''iiii: «:!
At a recent meeting of the Student
Living committee, which is composed
of faculty members who look after
the interests of the different student
organizations, the following new rules
in regard to campus organizations
1. All fraternities and clubs must
incorporate under the laws of the
State of Oregon.
2. The treasurer of each of the
local groups must be under bonds
sufficient to cover indebtedness.
Note.—This shall also apply to
those national organizations that do
not have national supervision.
3. All new groups must carry in
surance on their personal belongings
and househrold equipment.
Note.—This applies also to those
national organizations that do not
have national supervision.
4. New groups expecting to or
ganize shall first obtain the consent
of the Student Living Committee.
5. No student organization shall
rent, lease, purchase, or acquire by
bequest, real estate or enter into any
contract for real estate covering a
period of years, unless such agree
ment shall first have been approved
by the Student L:ving Committee.
6. The location of all fraternity,
sorority, and club houses shall be
approved by the Student Living Com
7. All student organizations hav
ing financial obligations except those
under the direction of the Student
Body, shall submit to the Student ;
Living Committee a financial state-1
ment on the 5th of each month.
The Student Living Committee is
composed of the following faculty!
members: Dr. Bovard, chairman and
Dean Morton, Professor Crockatt,
Dr. DeBusk, Miss Perkins, Miss Tin
gle, Dean Fox and Dean Straub, ad
to have around her fellow students, in
not possessing afty contagious dis
eases. The second reason is to de
termine the individual’s weak points,
so it will enable the department to
develop and strengthen them, and
third, to enable the department to
place the girl in the sort of work
that is .suitable to her. The fourth
reason is to gather data, by compar
ing the spring tests with those given
in the fall, if any improvement has
been made in the condition of the
girls during the school year.
