Dean of Physical Education
Visits Many Schools
MATERIAL TO BE PRINTED
Intramural and Voluntary
John F. Bovard, dean of the
school of physical education, had as ;
the underlying purpose of his trip
to the south, made last term, the
undertaking of an investigation of
how hygiene was being taught in
the universities and colleges of the
southern states. At the request of
the Presidents’ Committee of Fifty,
New York city, which is interested
jn college hygiene, Beam. Bovard
•was asked to represent them as
their agent, in the tenth district.
With a leave of absence granted
for the remainder of the term, he
set out on his itinerary, visit
ing numerous universities, medical
schools, dental colleges, and normal
Methods are Observed
Putting into the words of Dean
Bovard the definite object of his
extended travel, a broader meaning
can be imparted. “As the agent
of the central committee, my pur
pose was to study the question of
how hygiene was being taught; to
discover what other agencies thero
wero in the . universities and col
leges which supported a hygiene
program; and to find out what re
lationships existed between physical
education and athletics, and be
tween the general health and
hygiene program; and furthermore,
to get as far as possible the at
titude of both the faculty and stu
dents on hygiene instruction.”
Dean Bovard refused at this pro
mature time to make any favorable
comments or criticisms upon the
hygienic conditions as they existed
in the various institutions other
than to give a few personal gen
eral opinions not directly bearing
upon the immediate subject. Ho
went on to say that the reports
of the investigations taken as a
whole as regards each institution,
or in comparative results with one
another, had to be compiled and
sent in to the central committee.
This information has to bo evaluat
ed and summarized, and after all
reports are completed from the ton
listricts, the material will be print
sd and distributed to all tho
institutions of higher learning
throughout the United States.

gienic programs of several schools

Giving a general summary ot
•onditions prevalent in tho univei
litres and colleges of the south,
Dean Bovard continued: “A large
fund of information was obtained
f the situations on the coast, mi
-ospect to the athletic systems and
policies of the schools. The gem

Still others arc just beginning to
develop an interest in physical
education. It all goes to show that

definite relationship between phy

physical well-being, and show their
appreciation by accepting the pro
This investigation into applied
hygiene in physical education leads
to the further discovery that the
faculty are keenly alive to the re
creational courses, affirmed Dean
Bovard. “Even the faculties of
the various schools are taking an
increasing interest in the work of
physical education. They are will
ing to support the directors and
give them necessary equipment to
build up a decent program. They
are making an efTort to study the
many courses contributing to hy
giene, and in the work of recrea
tional endeavor they are trying to
find out the most beneficial courses
for bodily upbuilding.”
Courses are Changed
The upward trend of physical
educational activities will in time
cover a more thorough and broader
field, he explained. The old
methods of teaching personal
hygiene and the diversified scien
tific' courses appertaining to the
human body will be relegated to
the high schools. Continuing to
give his viewpoint of the matter,
Dean Bovard said in part:
“The teaching of hygiene is going
to be in tho nature of health edu
cation. The stereotyped courses,
built on the old teaching system of j
anatomy, physiology and hygiene is.
being pushed into the high schools.
It is being left to tho colleges to I
discuss tho relationship between the
individual and disease; how disease
is obtained and how to avoid it;
and how to work at one’s greatest
efficincy. It can bo asked further,
what are tho relations between the
individual and society with respoct
to health? And what responsibil
ity does the individual as a citizen
have in relation to health agoncies

GLEE CLUB CONTEST
Five Institutions of West
V. T. Motschenbacher, an Oregon j
graduate of the class of ’13, has
been chosen as head of the alumni
committee to j>romote a northwest
intercollegiate glee club contest.
The alumni of the University of
Oregon, Oregon Agricultural college,
the University of Washington,
Washington State college and the
University of Idaho have become
interested in a movement for a con
test among the glee clubs of the
five institutions, to be held in
Portland about the middle of April.
Representatives of the north
western glee clubs met in Portland
December 22 for the purpose of
promoting such a contest. They
chose an alumni group to handle
and promote the affair. Motschen
bacher, who heads .the committee,
was an Oregon Glee club man and
a varsity basketball player. He is |
a member of Alpha Tau Omega
It is planned to use the Heilig
theater, the municipal auditorium
or some other large place for the
event. The alumni committee is
counting on at least the two Oregon
schools, tho two Washington schools
and Idaho for the contest at Port
Each contesting institution will
be allowed a maximum of 24 men
and a director. The same number
of pieces will be sung by each club.
Before the participation of the Uni
versity is certain, the plan must
pass the music and finance com
“The colleges will bo fortunate if
they make their expenses from the
affair,” says .Tack Benofiel, gradu
ate manager of the A. b. U. O.
Each institution will at least have
to guarantee the railroad fare for
its club. Alumni backing will also
be necessary in order to insure any
sort of financial success.

EUGENE HIGH WINS GAME
University Team Crippled; Subs
Play Good Game, Says Coach
The University high school lost
its second basketball game this
last week-end, when Eugene high
carried off the laurels with a 3core
of 2.1 to 10. The University high
team was badly crippled by the
illness of a number of its players
and the game was played largely by
a line of substitutes, says the coach.
The sick boys are improving, how
ever, and he hopes to have the en
tire regular team for the next game
which will be placed with Rose
berg, Friday night.
Eugene high made most of its
baskets from the center of the floor
as the defence put up by the losing
team kept them at some distance
from the baskets. The game was
a very exciting one and was close
most of the time.
FEES SHOULD BE PAID
EARLY PART OF WEEK
E. P. Lyons Urges Students to
Make Remunerations at Once
to Prevent Rush
The word that comes from the
business office is, “pay your fees
early.” The cashier’s windows are
remaining open later during regis
tration so that all students can be
accommodated, but not even, that
will help unless the students come
up the early part of the week as
well as the last few days.
“The amount of work to be done
during the week of registration is
enormous,” said E. P. Lyon, of the
business office. “When students
wait until the last day or two to
pay their fees, it is doubly hard
on those working in the office.”
Yesterday morning there were
not as many paying their fees as
was expected, but in the afternoon
there were more. According to Mr.
Lyon, it will take a steady line of
students during every hour that the
windows are open to accommodate
all the students.
