A Funny Little, Sunny-Tempered
Truck Comes Gathering-—Girls
A funny little truck, a sunnv-tem
pered one that doesn’t go very fast
\ or very slow, cftmes gathering at
the University of Oregon every day.
Its driver’s name is Sam Manerud,
but you always call him Sam be
| cause everyone else does. Sam stops
at a corner every day and rings a
funny little bell. The bell—it really
does sound like a eowbell—brings
forth, not laundry nor milk bottles,
but college women, trimly attired
in riding Jiajoits, who call “Hello
Sam—sorry I 'm late.” °
They hop in and perch themselves
on one of two little benches in the
“lumpity” little truck. When
enough habit-clad girls have piled
in, away goes Sam out to Bangs’
Riding academy, of which he is
owner, for the day’s classes.
Eighty-five university women are
signed up for horseback riding this
year, taking it for credit as their
physical education requirement.
This is, Sam declares, one of the
largest riding classes the university
has ever had, and to him it is a
demonstration that the popularity
of the sport is growing, rather than
languishing as it did from about
1910 to 1920. Worni n students ride
two hours an aftt n a each week,
making up the thir ' required hour

Sam thinks, too, that riding is
one of the best recreations, because
it develops muscles Usually ncifl

the fresh air and the country and
