SWING-JUMP RECORD SET
Caroline Cannon Clears Standard at
Seven Feet in Gym
The highest record made by any
woman at the University of Oregon
in the swing jump was made by
Caroline Cannon, a sophomore from
Portland, when she jumped the height
of 84 inches or seven feet last Thurs
day in a contest held during the reg
ular gymnasium class period qf phy
sical education majors. Era God
frey, a senior from Lebanon, made
second with a jump of 78 inches.
Miss Cannon, who is only five feet,
one-half inch high, wore a bathing
suit when she accomplished this feat.
The swing jump is similar to a
pole vault, the difference being that
two ropes suspended from the ceil
ing are used as aids in making the
jump over the standard instead of

DURNO TO PILOT
Season Ends With Good
Prospects For Next
TOTAL OF 431 POINTS IN
17 GAMES MADE BY U. 0.
All of Squad But Two to Return
Next Season; Six Official
Eddie Durno, midget forward on
the Varsity basketball quintet and
one of the smallest players in the
conferences, was elected captain of
the Oregon basketball team for the
1921 season at a meeting in Hay
ward’s office Thursday afternoon.
Durno was one qf the mainstays on
the Varsity five this year and is rated
as one of the fastest .forwards in
the conference by sport authorities.
He was selected as a member of the
all Pacific Coast team last year.
Durno scored 196 points of the
total number of 431 made by the
lemon-yellow five this season.
Oregon scored a total of 431 points
against her opponents’ 472 in the sea
son just completed, winning nine out
of the 17 games played. Sickness
and the flu epidemic have played an
important part in the basketball sche
dules of the Varsity five this year
and the team has played in hard luck
from these sources since the first
few opening games.
Lind and McCready Go
Lind, captain of the team this year,
and McCready, sub forward, are the
only two men who will be iost by the
graduation process, which will leave
a substantial foundation of letter men
upon which to build a fast quintet
for next year. Bellar, sub guard for
the five, made his letter thip year,
while Manerud, who was used as
spare forward, lacked, but half a
game to get his. Letters were award
ed to Durno, Lind, Latham, Chapman,
Jacobberger and Beller.
Latham and Beller both Ijroke into
Varsity this year for their first time.
They were members of the frosh
quintet last year and have two more
years to play with the Varsity five.
Manerud also played his first year
with the Varsity squad this season.
EDWIN R. DURNO
Jacobberger, Chapman and Durno
finished their second year with the
Varsity quintet, as did McCready, who
was a letter man of the team of 1917.
Lind played his third year with the
team this season.
Lind Second High Point Man
Of the total points made by the
team in their 17 games, Durno, for
ward, made 196; Lind, forward, 68;
Latham, center, 42; Chapman, guard,
24; Jacobberger, guard, 18; Manerud,
sub forward, 23; Beller, sub guard,
and McCready, sub guajd, 6 each.
Durno played in all or a part of 15
games played by the Varsity. Lind
played in all the games, Latham in 16,
Chapman in 14, Jacobberger in all 17,
Manerud in 6, Beller in 6 and Mc
Cready in 2 games.
Had the two games with the Aggies
scheduled for this week been played
and won by the Varsity quintet, this
would have placed Oregon In third
place in the Pacific Coast conference
with a percentage of 600. With the
cancelling of these games by the
Aggies, however, Oregon’s chances of
pulling themselves out of the cellar

SENIOR CLASS FAVORS
PLAN TO HOLD COMMENCEMENT
BEFORE END OF YEAR
Unanimous indorsement of the plan
under consideration by the student
committee to ask the faculty to hold
commencement exercises before the
regular close of the University’s ses
sion, was given by the senior class
at a meeting held in Professor Howe’s
room on Thursday afternoon. The
plan as explained by members of the
student council, includes the holding
of final examinations for seniors sev
eral days before the regular term
finals, and commencement exercises
at the beginning of the final week of
Members of the class declared that
in former years commencement has
been more or less of a farce for
only the graduates themselves remain
over for the exercises, and commence
ment visitors see only a deserted
campus. The new plan, ti was declar
ed, will insure well attended cere
monies and a worth while visit to
the University for the friends of the
graduates. All who expressed an
opinion on the matter declared that
it is not a case of shortening their
University work by one week, but
rather a step toward lending the oc
casion its true dignity.
Acting upon the recommendation of
the committee previously appointed
to select a senior play, the class au
thorized Norman Philips to Becure
