KNOW HOW TO SWIM
The coming of the summer swimming
season in Salem will bring with it a
desire on the part of the great mass
of people of the city for refreshment
through the medium of bathing resorts,
rivers, swimming pools and watering
pi. ices of all descriptions: It seem ap
propriate therefore, at this time that
a little space be (riven to the discus
sion of the necessity of learning how
to swim. In fact we should say the
"duty" of learning how to swim rath
or than the necessity.
Oscar B. Gingrich, physical director
. M. C. A. says, relative to the "ne
cessity of learning how to swim."
According to the United States cen
sus statistics, over seven tbousiud per
sons lost their lives through drowning,
during the year 1913. It is estimated
that at least twenty-five per cent of all
young men and boys in the United
States over twelve years of age do not
know how to swim and when applied
to both sexes and all ages the percent
age is of course much larger.
Dr. Goo. J. Fisher, secretary of phys
ical education for the international
committee of Young Men's Christian
Associations gives the following as the
essential reasons for knowing how to
swim: It is a splendid form of erer
eise, judged from tiie standpoint of
physiology, resulting in improved
health accompanied by ease nnd grace
of earriige; it impart elf-reliance
and courage, which become elements
in one's character, increasing one's
power both for good and against evil;
and finally it may prove the means of
Realizing from these facts the neces
sity for action, The Young Men's
Christian. Associations have undertaken
to teach swimming on a very compre
hensive basis, their slogan being
"every man and boy in America a
The Salem Young Men's Christian
Association is one in the great chain
of associations in North Americt. Co
operating with , the other associations
it is the aim of the Ralem association
in as far as it is possible to have every
man, woman and chili! of sufficient age
in Salem a swimmer.
The question immediately arises:
How can swimming be tuight on such
a comprehensive basisf A later article
on the same subject will contain sug
gestions as to how the local Y. M. C.
A. hopes to accomplish this task.

To a Packed House
The Junior class play "Sherwood"
given at the Grand lust night was
played before a picked house, and from
start to finish the uudienee had the
feeling that they were watching pro
fessionals acting r.itiier than amateurs.
Professor Wallace MacMurray who hud
charge of the play deserves much cred
it for the excellent manner in which
the play was presented.
The play was long, taking four
hours to present, but the audience was
so interested in the unfolding of the
plot that the hours flew by unheeded.
The bold deeds of the daring Robin
Hood ind his bonnle outlaws held the
attention of the crowd throughout.
Miss Violet Maclean in tho role ot
Lady Marian, the sweetheart of Robin
iJIooil, played her part in a true and
I realistic manner, and many who are
j capable of judging said tint, she pl.'iy
Cd her part better, than many a profes
sional. Earl Flegel as the Earl of
Huntington, later the outlaw Robin
Hood, portrayed tho part with a fer
Jvor. Jle had tho heavies role of the
entire pl.iy, uppeaiing in every act, and
yet he never missed a cue. Labnn
Steeves, the court fool, had a very
difficult part to interpret, yot ho show
ed himself to very good advuntnge.
Carl Heetz, who took the double role
of Lord Fitzwulter and aleo the part
of King Richard wns naturally fitted
jtor the part hiving a deep voice anil
sirong pnysique. Miss Hosamond Gil
bert as yueen Elinor had the part of
the vilian aud played her role so well
the audience paid her the compliment
of hating her. Wallaco Adams as the
villian King John played his part
Willis Bartlett is little John caused
a laugh with every action, nltho in a
minor part he showed his ability as an
Stanley Van Winkle as the genial
friar could not have been surpassed in
w-ll in the minor pint of maid to Mar
Ian. The second act was ono thorough
ly enjoyed, as the fairy court assem
bled and danced as only fairies could.
Three solo dances that were applauded
were those by Miss Irmi Botsfonl,
Miss Esther Taylor and Mr. Bert Ford.
These dances were given in a changing
spot light and were the event of the
act. Besides the solo dance Miss Bots
ford appeared in three distinct roles
and was applauded in all.
The Queen of the May ind her at
tendants were present, occupying the
upper left box.
