Hersh Taylor Opens Horseshoe Bar in 1919 By NA3f GAVENEY Just out of the army and with not enough money to buy civies, the young air corps officer arrived in Eugene. The year was 1919. He was a transplanted ear of Iowa corn from Guthrie Center and was starting out in business for him self. Hersh Taylor, without knowing the difference between an ice cream soda and a hamburger, opened a restaurant for business on the University of Oregon cam pus. The building was small at that time, only half the size it is today, with a horseshoe counter. But then the campus enrollment was only 900 students. The Good Old Days After the serpentine rallies for the big games, the college crowd would swarm to Taylor’s for an evening of fun-making. Everyone lenew everyone. They were a bit wilder in those days, according to Hersh, and perhaps had ■ a little more fun. By 3934 the campus had grown and Hersh found that the horse shoe counter was no longer prac tical for the crowd. Not nearly as many people could be served, and so an addition was built on Tay lor's and booths installed. The counter service was still main tained, however. The kids were more at home that way. i Taylor’s »has not been changed since then. It's still confusing to | townspeople who come in, sit at a booth for half an hour, and then ; complain about the service. When Men Were Men ' When World War II. came, Hersh, who had been a reserve military police major for a good rUBOPE BY BICYCLE I.ow-eost Student Tours, Bns or ItiUe From 63 days, $135, all inc. <; ITAr Adventure frails Students’ International Travel Association W. At Roecker. For. Lang. Dept, 9-9*96 many years, once more went into the service of his country. In the first World War he had been in the 91st division and later commander of the 184th air squad ron in France. This time he was an army transport commander in the Pacific. Mrs. Taylor operated the business while he was gone. And Though Things Change When he returned, he found the college atmosphere somewhat al tered. In the last four years there has been an immense change in the spirit of the patronage at Taylor’s. Before the war the high school “hot shots” had to be acclimated to campus customs. This is no longer so. Thanks to the GI's, the spirit has become more cooperative and friendly. Hersh has a great deal of sympathy with them and occasionally runs into one that he hauled over to some beachhead in the Pacific. There’s Still! Understanding:. He has been in this business for 30 years, longer than any other restaurateur in Eugene, and has had chances to go into business downtown. But he understands the students and they understand him. He wouldn't be any other place but on the campus. This is a lucky break for Web foots. If he were to leave, there jivould. be 11 to 12 hundred less coffees talked over per day; and countless less beers to cry in. Women Are Necessary The state extension division, which conducts dancing lessons every Tuesday night in Gerling er announced' that women arc badly needed as partners. Nearly GO men attend >the course; the attendance tftr girls averages about 12. Bessons have advanced to the point where partners are a prerequisite. The class is held from 7 to 9 p,m.

Ro-1 binson, director of the University Theater, appeared in education magazines in December and a third is scheduled for publication in March in the Educational Thea ter Journal. The stories appeared in conjunc tion with Robinson’s work as chairman of the Theater Archi tects Committee of the American Educational Theater Association. Covers -School Problems The December, 1949, issue of The Bulletin of the National As sociation of Secondary School Principals carried a discussion by Mr. Robinson on “Auditorium and Stage Facilities.” The director dis cussed the problems facing high schools in presenting plays. Another article covering the theoretical angle of this subject appeared in the December, 1949, issue of the Educational Theater Journal, entitled “An Approach to Theater Planning.” The March issue of the ETJ will carry an article by Robinson called “Theater Architects vs. Theater Personnel.” In this story, he dis cusses the construction of thea ters by the personnel who work in them. Theaters Unsatisfactory The author points out the result of a survey in which it was found that out of 29 theaters built on college campuses during the past five years, only six were satisfac tory to the theater personnel work ing in them, because the structures were architecturally conceived ra ther than theatrically conceived. Robinson also announced in this article -three conferences which will be the first step in the closer cooperation between architecture and theater people. The conferen ces will be held in Ann Arbor, Mich., in April, Paris, France, in July, and in New York next De cember. University Sororities Pledge 47;.
