HYGIENE SUBJECT Dean of Physical Education Visits Many Schools MATERIAL TO BE PRINTED Intramural and Voluntary Sports Popular 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 schools. 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. Bovard Gives Summary Material dealing with the hy gienic programs of several schools ,f the state of Texas has yet to bo written up and turned over to the ■entral committee. These official ■eports will finish his work as their •epresentative in the field, asserted Dean Bovard. 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 „al impression of the development ,f intramural programs was inter ring. Good weather and suf Icient facilities enable some ot the ichools to have large intramural jrograniB.

It all goes to show that the students are. realizing the definite relationship between phy sical 'educational activities and physical well-being, and show their appreciation by accepting the pro grams.” 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 in the city, county, state or na tion?” Dean Visits Schools Some of the institutions inspected by Dean Bovard during his stay in the south are as follows: Universities — University of Southern California, Pomona uni versity, Claremont, California; Uni versity of Texas, Austin; Univer sity of Arizona, Tucson; Univer sity of New Mexico, Albuquerque; Baylor university, Wasco, Texas. Medical schools—Stanford uni versity, University of Texas, Gal veston; Baylor university, Dallas, Texas. Dental collegos—University of California, San Francisco; East Texas Dental college, Houston; Baylor Dental university, Dallas. Normal schools—San Francisco Teachers college, San Jose Teachors ’ college, Fresno Teachers ’ college, Sam Houston Teachers’ college, Tuntsville, Texas; College of In dustrial Arts, Dentom, Now Mexi co, and the Normal University, lo cated at Las Vojas, New Mexico. Tho Presidents Committee of Fifty is an organization of uni versity and college presidents who are extremely interested in college hygiene. Last fall they decided to comb the nation for material and: statistics relevant to their interests. j An executive central committee was elected to undertake the work, j and it in turn divided up the Unit-j ed States into ton districts and | chose an agent to cover each re- j speetive field. No compensation was offered, but the central com mittee agreed to meet all travel-! ing expenses of their agents. Each agent was directly responsible to them and all information gathered, was in strict faith to be con tidential.

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 fraternity. 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 land. 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 mittees here. “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.

At the Theatres ■ - ■ —---—.. ■ ■ O HEILIG May Robson the most magnetic woman on the stage today, has had praises enough showered upon her for her excellent work, to make any or dinary woman so conceited that no one could tolerate them but it has not had that effect on Miss Robson, far from it and therein lies her greatest charm. For several seasons theatregoers from all over the country have been sending in reque-ts for “The Reju venation of Aunt Mary,’’ the play i which made Miss Robson, a star of the first water and so closely iden-, tified is Miss Robson and “Aunt Mary” that no one has ever attempt-1 ed to follow her. “Aunt Mary” is a deaj old New England spinster, who is blessed with plenty of money and her love is all ! laid at the shrine of her nephew “Jack”, whose college days are made j up of all kinds of escapades much to the worriment of “Aunt Mary”, but he knows how deeply she loves him and feels pretty sure of. a rescue. The ancient maid of all work and the hired man, are all of the old re gime and the comedy woven around these characters with “Aunt Mary” and her deafness, is of the genuine type, not far fetched but like a breath of new mown hay on a sum mer evening way back in the vista of our sweetest memory. A wonderfully skilled company, a perfect production and a treat for 'every one is promised. “The Rejuvenation of Aunt Mary” will appear at the Heilig Monday, January 28.
