CANOE CARNIVAL PLANS
TAKING DEFINITE SHAPE
EUGENE BUSINESS MEN HAVE
BEEN LIBERAL IN CON
COLD WATER FORRIDS SOME EVENTS
Others Have Been Substituted How
ever, and Everything Points to
The long, continued inclement
weather has made necessary a few
changes in the program of events
for the Canoe Carnival, but other
wise arrangements are complete and
every indication points to this new
event being one of the most success
ful in the whole Week-End program.
Due to the cold water, it has been
found inadvisable to schedule the
events requiring long immersion in
the mill race and for the mile swim
and for the water polo and baseball
have been substituted three events
which are expected to prove equally
interesting. These are high and fan
cy diving contests and two short ca
noe races. One of these races will
be for men’s teams, distance 600
yards, and the other will be a mixed
double race, 600 yards. The courses
for both these, as for the ladies’
double, will be 600 yards. They will
start at the judges’ stand, go down
stream, turn in the slow water above
the headgates and finish at the start
ing point. Spectators will thus be
enabled to see both the start and the
The prize for winning any event
will be either a silver trophy cup or
prize equivalent to $5.00 or more.
This has been made possible by the
generosity of the Eugene business
men and Commercial Club. In addi
tion to the six silver trophy cups
prviously announced, the Eugene
Commercial Club will donate $10.00,
the Promotion Department, $5.00, and
Mr. M. J. Duryea, president of the
former organization, $5.00, individu
ally. To absolve the winners from
all charge of professionalism, this
money will be in the shape of $5.00
orders on the local merchants. In
addition, McMorran & Washburne
will give a beautiful Indian robe.
The complete lists of events and
prizes is as follows:
Tipping contest, $5 prize.
Men’s doubles, race, cup.
Men’s doubles, dash, GOO yards, cup.
Women’s doubles, 600 yards, cup.
Mixed doubles, 600 yards, $5 prize.
Tilting contest, cup.
Tub race, between classes, cup.
Best decorated class float, cup.
Best decorated bouse float, cup.
Best decorated individual boat, $5
100 yard swim, $5 prize.
Diving contests, $5 prize.
Lances for the tilting contest must
be provided. They must not exceed
ten feet in length and must be gen
erously padded to avoid possibility of
injury and to pass the inspection of
“Hippo” Gillis, who will be general
referee of the contests.
Provided that insufficient entries,
are made in any event, the committee
reserves the right to cancel the con-1
test. Entries must be made by Thurs- I
day evening either to the committee
by application or when the committee
calls on the various houses.

ONLY WAIT FOR CURTAIN
“At Yale’’ Cast Promises to Produce
College Play Second to None
“At Yale” is ready and will be pre
sented tomorrow evening at the Eu
gene theatre to the students and their
friends for criticism.
The plot centers about a boat race
between Yale and Harvard and the
efforts of a commercially minded stu
dent to make a “killing” on bets by
keeping the Yale captain from enter
ing the race. It contains many com
plex and exciting scenes and the Dra
matic Club is confident that it can
meet the requirements of the play to
the satisfaction of the most critical.
The seat sale opened this morning
and indicates the attendance of a
large audience. The seats sell for
$.50, $.75 and $1.00.
