State Record Made
Diving Exhibition is
Given by Kuehn
The Multnomah club mermen
bested the varsity aggregation yes
terday afternoon in the women's
tank by a final count of 43 to 23,!
taking every event except the dives
and the plunge. Peterson, of the
club, was the high-point man of the
matinee affair with 1114 points. He;
took first in both the 100-yard and
40-yard dashes and swam the last
leg of the relay, which was taken
by the Portland swimmers. Not
only was Peterson the high-point
man of the meet, but he also suc
ceeded in cracking the state record
for the 100-yarcT dash when he swam
the five laps in 1:00:4-5. The pre
vious mark of 1:01 was held by Nor
man Boss, former club star.
Horsfall was the high man of the
varsity aggregation, taking first in i
the dives and second in the 220
yard dash. During an intermission,
Louis “Happy” Kuehn, amateur
champion fancy diver of the world,
gave an exhibition which brought
the crowd to its feet on several oc
casions. Although Kuehn holds his
title on the 10-foot board, he seemed
to have .little trouble performing on
the four-foot board. His repertoire
included a list of plain and, fancy
dives as well as a number of trick
dives, in which he comically depicted
the novice at the diving game.

Rumors Heard on

past nine years, estimated that two
tliirds of the graves would be removed

Expense would also be a large item.
A removal of the graveyard would
oblige those responsible for the move
ment to provide new land, and to
stand the expense of the actual trans
portation. If two-thirds of those
interred were removed, say to the
new Odd Fellow’s cemetery five miles
west of town, Mr. La Duke estimated
the entire expense, including the pur
chase of new land, would amount to
approximately $50,000. This new Odd
TVllows’ cemetery, established recent
ly upon the safe of all available space
in rue old cemetery, is forty acres in
extent, and would provide ample
ground for all the graves removed.
The old cemetery, which covers ap
proximately six city blocks, was es
tablished in 1871, or one year before
the founding of the University of
As to the possibility of the rumor
becoming an actuality, one guess
seems about as good as another. Mr.
La Duke could offer nothing definite.
He has heard the rumor for the past
nine years. The University adminis

is hoped in the future to have the
place changed into a memorial park,

[Carlo, the Kake Eater
Kal ol’ Kid:
I'm getting a hot kick out of the
low down I got on a real place to
knock around in during my spare
time. It’s Obak’s Kollege Klub, if
you know what that means. It’s a
swell place, plenty of pool and bil
liard tables, a place to eat, and al
ways somebody around to help you
enjoy it. Better'n anything you ever
saw at home.
I’ve threw away my old pipe, on
account of Obak selling me one that
beats anything I ever puffed at.
Any kind of tobacco you want he’s
got, and when you want swell smokes
for a Tux party, or reg’lars for
use, he’s got them too.
Say I got a real surprise for the
old man coming up this month. You
know so far reports of my grades
have been pretty bum, but since I’ve
been getting a little kick out of life,
darned if studying ain’t coming sort
of natural, and yesterday I got three
II’g on papers I got back. That don’t
sound like me, but its a fakt.
Here’s my pitcher, Kal, that’s to
go in the Oreganda, which shows how
I feel since startin’ in to enjoy my
self at the Kollege Klub.

The Krier decided this week to
deviate from the usual policy of just
nominating one man for this depart
ment. Thus several will be put up,
and readers are asked to guess which
one. The one getting the most
guesses will be thrown in the mill
1. The young duke from Dufer who
thinks that a Tuxedo outfit is a can
of tobacco and a pipe; who thinks
that the Pentathlon is a local eating
fraternity; and who took an adver
tisement asking for a job to the Ad
2. The pampered Prince from Port
land, who cried when he got mud
spattered on his golf sox; who is so
bored with himself that he turns to
women for diversion; and whose best
joke is “A pear tree was made for
3. The young man who came down
here to get the most out of his col
lege career and out of life; who stu
dies hard and plays hard; and who,
when he wants to give his brain a
rest, comes into Obak’s Kollege Klub,
and at the Bame time enjoys the
cleanest livest recreation, a game of
billiards or pool.

and Your Position
Cfl Have you ever noticed how you uncon
sciously judge a man’s position by the kind
of a car he drives. Without knowing it you
turn over in your mind, his knowledge of
values, his appreciation for service, his de
light in beauty and the kind of a business
man he is in general.

of a home he recognizes the shrewdness and
judgment that would characterize the own
