Speech-Drama Division Enlarges
Activity Program for All Students
Activity outlets which are being
offered this year by the Speech
Drama divisions are greater than
at any previous time in the history
of the University. In the six major
productions, opportunities will be
provided in speech, drama, or radio
according to the student’s special
Some of the shows may go on
tour thus providing an added in
terest to many students. The de
partment wishes to stress that it
is not necessary to be a drama
major to be eligible, for these pro
ductions. Horace W. Robinson or
Mrs. Ottilie T. Seybolt are the
people to see about getting into
Enlarged public discussion for
student participation is provided.
Students band together under the
direction of R. D. Clark and W. A.
Dahlberg, director of speech de
partment, to select one or two
controversial questions on cur rent
topics on which they .may collec
tively gather more research. When
the groups fgel adequately in
formed; they travel around Ore
gon and speak to approximately
100 audiences a year such as
granges, schools, civic clubs, and
church groups. They cover prac
tically all points in the state.
Travel expenses are taken care of
by a divisional budget of several
hundred dollars. The object of this
activity is primarily to improve
a person’s power of speaking .
In addition to public discussion
groups, a traveling speakers’
bureau is offered. Work is done
separately. Many students have
found this an unusual experience
because they are able to express
and formulate their personal
opinions. Mr. Dahlberg feels that
this should appeal particularly to
veterans and is available to talk
with those interested.
Re-establishing its inter-colleg
iate affiliation last year, the Uni
versity of Oregon is now a mem
ber of the Inter-Collegiate For
ensic association of Oregon and
the Pacific Forensic league. Ex
tempore speaking, after-dinner
speaking, forum discussions, and
oratory are sponsored by both of
these organizations. Competition
with students of other Pacific
coast colleges and universities is
the main opportunity in this field.

professor of speech and dramatic
arts, is handling this phase of the

"We want the freshmen, men
and women, to come out as well as
the upper-classmen. Participation
will provide you with fun, a real
sense of achievement, a worth

better speech,” said Mr. Dahlberg.
