past weekend, when two of the famous national picture magazine’s
crack photographers. Hansel Mieth and Otto Hagel, journeyed by
automobile from San Francisco to “shoot" Les Steers, Oregon's world
champion high jumper.
The pair, who are man and wife, last week had an outstanding
picture story on Harvard, and have several other photo stories ready
to be run. Miss Mieth is a regular
staff member and associate edi

does contract work for the same
Immediately after arriving,
they were invited to dinner at the
home of George H. Godfrey, head
of the University news bureau,
along with Steers and his girl
friend, Marge Hosfeldt, Bill Hay
ward, and several others.
There they discussed plans for
taking the pictures and the shots
the magazine especially desired.
The following day, Saturday, Miss
Mieth and Mr. Hagel took photos
of Steers jumping against Wash
ington State, throwing the jave
lin, and shot putting.
Sunday morning Steers, Miss
Hosfeldt, Bill Hayward, and the
Junior Weekend courts and p»rin
cesses gathered at the men’s
gymnasium while outside the rain
poured down, and here all "gag”
shots were snapped.
The pictures are expected to be
