Well, the campus fire brigade is
tragically in need of firemen. Mr.
Boushey and his recruiting ser

aren’t enough volunteers to fill
the ranks of this most important
Fire Watchers Run
Here’s the setup. There are two
types of personnel: the fire
watchers and the fire fighters.
When the air-raid alarm sounds
the fire watchers will run to their
preassigned stations atop impor
tant buildings. They will keep the
above mentioned eagle-eye peeled
for incendiary bombs. If any fall
on inflammable material, the fire
watchers will deal with the result
ant conflagration. The campus
has been divided into eight sec
tions with a sergeant in charge of
all fire watchers in his section.
At the sound of the alarm, the
fire fighters will all gather in
Fenton hall. They will he sent to
fires which the watchers have not
been able to control. A sergeant
will lead a squad of six or eight
Blaze Battle Drills
The blaze-battlers will be thor
oughly drilled in modern fire
fighting technique. Early comers
have already heard a series of
lectures based on a bulletin to
Oregon fire chiefs. Specialists
will visit the campus to deliver
talks and stage demonstrations.
Members of the brigade will trek
to the city fire department for
instructions on, for example, how
to prevent excessive water dam
age in fire fighting.
The organization will also be
well equipped. Professor Boushey
is expecting shipments of fire
men’s axes, blunt edged shovels,
crowbars, helmets, and smoke
masks. A fire-truck trailer will
be purchased from the proceeds
of the General MacArthur dance,
which was held March 27. The
students will wear old clothes and
will furnish their own heavy
gloves and flashlights.
At the present time there are
thirty-six men training for fire
watching. Twenty more watchers
are needed. So far, no volunteers

Recently appointed by Govern
or Sprague as director of the
physical fitness program for the
State of Oregon, Dean Leighton
points out, “this program consists
of improving the physical and
health conditions of the people of
the United States.”
P. E. Promoters
As the program is now being
established in Oregon, each coun
ty and community has a director
who is responsible for the pro
motion of physical education pro
grams in his designated territory.
All persons connected with this
program serve without remunera
“This physical improvement
program is carried out in all parts
of the state through various clubs
and organizations participating in
sports activities. It is also work
ing in cooperation wnth the vari
ous sport associations.
“The program is looked to as a
long-time project, not an emer
gency setup; that is the reason it
is so slow getting started,” ex
plains the dean.
The program consists of im
proving physical and health con
ditions of the peo^te > hrough
community instruction in rSeits
ures and methods for such im
provement. The need for a more
thorough physical plan is evident
when the program of the United
States is compared with that of
other nations, he observed.
Physical Need Seen
“People who have been abroad
observe that the physical and
health programs of such coun
tries as Germany, Finland, Swe
den, Norway, and even England
are more thorough than that of
the United States.
“The school of physical educa
tion has, for a year and a half,
been aware of the need for irj^.
creased activities which lead to
better physical and health condi
tions of the people,” says Dean
The plan for physical educa
tion and health improvement has
been coordinated at the Univer
sity in recent months. Each phys
ical education class has now be
come more thorough in its scope
than formerly, states the dean.
