New Physical Ed
ram for State
Explained by Tetz
ing Started; Port
land Lion Visits.
Oregon's new physical education
program was the subject of a talk
by Henry Tetz, school physical ed
ucation director, before the Monday
Lions luncheon. The program makes
physical education compulsory for
every high school student, physical
ly able, by requiring one credit of
the 16 necessary to graduate to be
acquired in this department, Tetz
Beginning next year it will be ap
plied to all freshmen and the full
credit for graduation will apply in
For students with physical dis
abilities, Tetz expected restricted
programs of physical education
would be developed to assist in over
coming such disabilities to the full
est degree. This type of student
needs the training the most and
should be given consideration in any
effective program of physical edu
cation, he believed.
Citing the history of physical ed
ucation, Tetz said the subject has
been given consideration beginning
with primitive man. It was stressed
by the Greeks whose Olympic games
are now held on a world-wide basis.
Athenians placed high importance
on sound bodies as evidenced by
their practice of throwing unwanted
babies from a certain rock on the
sea coast. In its earlier stages, how
ever, it was thought important only
to build physically strong men. The
idea of giving physical training to
women, also, is of comparatively re
cent development, he said.
The Spartans introduced military
training as the best means of phy
sical education, and Tetz drew a par
allel with that system and the sys
tems now in vogue in Germany and
Italy. Even in America many
schools having military training ex
cuse enrollees in that department
from taking other physical education
The Oregon system is opposed to
the military theory of physical ed
ucation, he said. Premised on the
theory that sound bodies are essen
tial to success, the Oregon system
incorporates the principle of build
ing ideals into the physical educa
tion program. Stress is placed upon
building up the mind, fostering so
cial contacts, and inculcating high
moral standards along with develop
ment and training of the body. So
interlinked with all phases of per
sonality is the physical man that no
phase can be ignored in a complete
physical education program, he said.
As applied locally at the present
time, three 45 -minute periods are
devoted each week to the physical
education program. Two periods
each, for boys and girls, are devoted
to games or other exercises, while
one period each is given over to
health study in the class room. Miss
Mitchell has charge of the girls'
groups while Mr. Tetz handles the
Paul Sayre, Portland attorney and
member of the East Side Lions club
in the city, was a guest and brought
greetings from the district governor,
Ralph Kletching of Salem. He re
cently attended a meeting of the
state convention committee, and out
lined the fine program of entertain
ment planned for this year's con
vention to be held in Medford in
BANISH ROUGH STUFF.
Fraternities at Oregon State col
lege have voted unanimously to join
a national movement to abolish "hell
week" in connection with initiations.
Although they had previously gone
part way in eliminating old style
initiation practices, they have now
decided to eliminate paddles in con
nection with initiaton, regulate the
hours when the final initiation takes
place, abolish till practices carried
on by initiates off the premises, and
refrain from practices which would
interfere with the candidates' at
tendance at classes.
