er SOUTH JAUNT
Organization Praised for Its
TRIP GREATLY ENJOYED
Oregon Alumni Hospitality
Adds to Pleasure
“With the. actual experience of the
Southern Oregon tour as a polisher 1
would be willing to put the Orchestra
up beside any Chautauqua or lyceuni
company,” said Hex Underwood, director
of the University Orchestra, in appre
ciation of the ability arid capacity for
work displayed on the trip just com
The enthusiasm with which every
number on the program was received
and the praise accorded the orchestra
after each concert, was great. Almost
the entire fund of light encores in the
repertoire of the organization was used
at each concert.
The pleasure of the trip for every
body was continually heightened by the
loyalty of alumni and ex-students and
the hospitality of the people generally.
At each town orchestra members would
come to the concert in the evening with
long tales of (the fine places in which
they were staying.
Yoncalla House Filled.
Yonealla was the scene ’of the first
concert given Tuesday evening, Mart'll
L’D. To Leslie I*. Miller, ’08, principal
of the Yoncalla high school, was given
large credit for the filling of the house
Early the following morning found the
bunch on the train bound for Grants
Pass where the fate of the entertain
ment that night was in the hands of
Carlton Logan and Wilford Allen, of the
sehool of journalism, and “Nick” Car
ter, ex-’20. Carter had made advance
arrangemontr for a eoueert to be follow
ed by a dance. All three had worked
hard and n good audience listened en
thusiastically to the concert and later
moved to the dance hall, where there was
hardly room to dance.
Medford was the first place in which
there had been time for any activity out
side of the orchestra itself to claim the
members time after the concert. There,
however, parties were given for the
Hiae to uaiiTornia Line.
In Ashland lunch was served in the'
domestic science department of the high
school after which high school students
took the members for a ride to the Cal
ifornia line over the Siskiyou moun
tains, through snow, rather an unusual
experience for some because the sun
was warm in the valley below. The
concert in the evening was the liveliest
of the whole trip. Everyone had 11 good
time playing the music. Even the jazz
bunch were funnier than usual, fun
which was aided by the pinning of clothes
pins on the coat tails of some of the
performers by some of the more juvenile
minded of the members.
In the morning, however, the hap
piness of the faces was more or less
forced for the train for ltoseburg left
at (5:40 necessitating somewhat earlier
rising than is necessary to make an
More Fun at Roseburg.
In Roseburg more automobile rides
greeted the bunch but also some icy
weather, (which, the members were as
sured, was not at all characteristic of
the town.) The larger part of the or
' ehestra chose to come on into Eugene
after the concert, llccause of this the
high school students prepared individual
lunches to he eaten on the train. These,
with the misuse of candy for missiles and
the portraying of animal sounds by some
of the versatile members, shortened the
time so that 2:110 a. m. and the arrival
in Eugene soon came.
The needs of the orchestra on the
Southern Pacific train were attended to
by E. G. Lewis, special agent for the
company. He did everything from slow
ing down the train to pick up programs
to changing the schedule of the special
car in which the orchestra traveled.
The program given by the orchestra
was in many respects rather light. Pop
ular encores followed every fnil orches
HAYWARD TELLS HOW
TO DO THE POLE VAULT
(Continued from rage 1).
The take-off will vary according to the
height of the cross hue. A good way to
mark it is to measure the height of the
bar by the pole and take hold of the pole
nt the spot with the top hand, raise the
pole overhead to jumping position and
the spot you are standing on will be cor
rect. On beginning the run the pole is
held at the side (pointing toward the
pit) about waist high, left hand in front,
fore arm across abdomen and the right
extended back to balance the pole. It
should not lie gripped tight enough to
cramp the vaulter but just enough so
the run will be natural. The eyes should
he kept on the hole and not the cross
bar. Home vary as to the time of slip
ping the hands but experience has shown
that the step before the last is the time
to place the pole in the hole and slip
lower hand at same tiipe. The time of
pull-up varies according to height. The
higher the bar the longer the hang on
the pole before the pull-up is made.
The pole should be made strong and
turned into a press up when the body is
turned on top the bar. The harder the
swing up is made and The feet pointing
almost straight up the easier the press
up on account of the momentum of the
body. The turn should not be made too
fast .but just, as the feet are over the
bar. This is where the press or shove
up begins and body should be in n
curved or arched position. The vaulter
must learn to control himself while in
the air so as to light in the pit in a safe
position facing the take-off.
The height to hold the pole varies as
the bar goes higher. At 10 feet one can
easily hold the height of the bar; at 11
feet a little below, probably four inches,
depending on the amount of press-up
ability. Vaulters doing 12 feet B inches
have been known to hold as low as one
foot below. The higher the pole is held
the more speed is lequired to reach the
bar and this is Ihe reason for holding
below the bar.
At great heights a large amount of
practice is required to master the form
which should be at a height that will
make the jumper work fairly hard. After
the form is perfect a few jumps a day
will be sufficient.
Twice a week the jumper should try
for his best height. A great deal of
sprinting should be taken the distance
of the run to the take-off with pole in
position as if to make the jump. A lot
of shoulder and arm work such as pull
ing and pressing up should be taken. A
pad should be worn or sewed on the
jersey at the point the pole hits, gen
erally at the breast next, to the pole.
“BRINGING UP FATHER” IN TOWN.
The shades of Hamlet and Romeo, ne
eompanied by strains of Wagnerian and
Italian grand opera, quietly fold their
tents and like the Arab steal away, when
“Bringing Up Father” comes to town.
It is quite evident thatt the American
public prefers Jiggs to Macbeth or Ham
let. The wonderful hoW that the car
toons of Getfrge McManus lfave upon
the theatregoers is fully demonstrated by
'.he packed houses that greet this at
traction everywhere. Announcement is
made that the latest scream and joy dis
tributor “Bringing Up Father at the Sea
shore,” will be the attraction at the Eu
gene Theater tonight only. The man
agement promises a bevy of beautiful
girls, smart ensembles, whistling melo
dies, catchy song hits, stunning cos
tumes and a large and capable cast oT
well known musical comedy players. The
seats may now be secured at the theater
box office or by phoning 361.
