New System Adopted by
Convention of Ooacihes;
Results Satisfactory
*"pHE new system of officiating
now used in the Northwest divi
sion of the Pacific Coast Confer
ence in all basketball games, which
was adopted at a meeting of offi
cials and coaches in Spokane last
December, is modeled after that
used in the Big Ten conference
where probably the most perfect
teams in the country are developed.
There, a committee composed o^
unbiased persons selects the offi

"We like the new system very
much. The team knows what kind
of officiating it will run into game
after game on a trip. The rules
and the work are uniform from
place to place and it is very satis
factory,” said J. W. “Doc” Stew
art, coach of the Montana quintet,
here last week-end.
It is a system that marks an ad
yance in the development of bask
etball in the Northwest. Coaches
and sports writers throughout the
Northwest are strong in Jheir praise
of it. ii !
How is an official paid?
They are paid by the University
at which the game is played and
receive $25 for an evening’s offi
ciating, with $10 per day for living
expenses, which pay the cost of
absence from their regular work,
jand expenses for railroad fare. Most
of them, as can be seen by the fees,
-are not in it for money. They like
-the game and enjoy officiating.
* * *
Montana was the first conference
-team to take the long field trip
and she had it the hardest with no
preliminary trip and a bunch of
hard teams to play at the beginning
of the season. Oregon’s field trip
comes now, with Washington third
and O. A. C. fourth. W. S. C. and
Idaho will follow.

The new basketball pavilion, to
be built of concrete with an ulti
mate seating capacity of 10,000, is
hoped to be completed by October,
1926. The building committee, head
ed by Ted Larsen, with Dean Law
rence as architect, has been occu
pied for months with the details
of the building. The Board of Re
gents will pass on the plan when
submitted. Both the finance and
building plan must be approved by
the board.
* » *
The difficulty ' and the large
amount of work entailed in the
building is due to the fact that
there isn’t another building in the
country like it. It will be just
about the most advanced thing in
the pavilion line.
* # *
The Idaho basketball floor at
Moscow is long and narrow and not
standard. The baskets practically
are perched on the end of the build
ing. It is a good floor but the ar
rangement is poor. The seating ca
pacity is very small. It is a dis
tinct advantage to the home team.
Oregon was victorious last night in
spite of the handicap of a rotten

Three Numbers by Campus
Students to be Given
Added interest in the DeMolay
vaudeville, which is showing this
afternoon and evening at the Mc
Donald theater, is lent to those on
the campus due to the fact that a
number of University students are
appearing in the production.
Three of the acts on the program
are composed entirely of University
talent. One, “Static,” is presented
by the Councilor club, campus or
ganization of DeMolays, and in
cludes Burton Nelson, lidwin John
son, Sigwald Skavalan, and Adrian
Burris in the cast. Another, “The
Porter,” is a black and white bur
lesque by Sid King and Mark Tay
lor. Mr. Taylor and WJlliam
Schulze also have parts in the fea
ture of the program, a one act

It was orginally announced that
another act, “This and That,”
would be given by Helga MeGrew,
Orion Dawson, Vivian Woodside,
and Mr. Schoenberg, but due to
sickness and an accident to one of
the cast, which1 hindered the pro
duction, it was decided to drop the
A special acrobatic dance by Bev
erly Simard, premiere • danseuse,
who lifts appeared successfully in
Portland and other cities, has been
substituted for the one which was
dropped. Miss Simard is visiting
relatives in Eugene, and those in
charge of the production consider
themselves very fortunate that she
has consented to present her dance.
Jim Purcell and his band will
also appear in “Modern Tenden
cies;” this act will include seven
musicians and two Charlestoners.

The summer session students in
1920 and 1921 were enlightened as
to the daily happenings, the weath
er, announcements, who’s who and
the coming social events through
the columns of the “Acta Diurna.”
Miss Grace Edgington, who was
then dean of women on the cam
pus, conceived and worked out the
idea of the bulletin board newspap
. er. Every day the news or at least
several items, was collected and
typed. It was pasted on a card
board 22 inches by 28 inches, bear
ing the heading “Aota Diurna,<”
in tall black letters. The news
sheet was posted on a bulletin
board, and although it could not be
enjoyed along with the eight
o ’clocks or over the toast and cof
fee, it was read by almost everv
« one.
Snapshots were sometimes-used to
illustrate an unusual news item and
to add personal interest. Red ink
was another device. But that was
only employed when something par
ticularly startling had happened or
was about to happen.
Nothing was lacking. Not even
editorials and book reviews. And
there was a “policy” mantaining
that the “Acta Diurna” was a pure
and unadulterated sheet, having to
do with the dissemination of near
news, and offering support to the
daily eleven o’clock assemblies and
recreational programs.
The idea proved to be a worth
while one, and soon everyone had
the “Acta Diurna” habit. There
was one evil connected with the
running of pictures in this bulle
tin; they always disappeared be
fore the page had been up long.

Coach Hayward Issues Call
For Experienced Men In
Jumps, Vaults, Weights
Regular Pre-Season Work
Well Under Way; First
Meet, Palo Alto, April 10
The cinder track on Hayward
field, which for a time was desert
ed except for a few distance men,
has now become the scene of work
for the 150 varsity and frosh track
men reporting three times h week to
Bill Hayward, trainer, who starts
his 24th consecutive • year at Ore
gon as track coach.
Work has been progressing slow
ly but steadily this term according
to Hayward, who has been piecing,
shifting and spending long hours
figuring out the best use for the
small nucleus with which he has to
build a team this season.
There is a great scarcity of men
with experience. Coach Hayward
has a large group of men out, but
most of them with the exception of
the men from the 1925 squad are
inexperienced. There is an urgent
need for jumpers of all kinds, pole
vaulters, and weight men. The
weakness of the 1926 team will
come out in those events if the
turnout can be judged now. The
dashes and the middle distances are
represented by capable men, who
should be doing their best work this
year. The hurdles are well taken
care of. In addition to the weights
and jumps the team shows weak
ness in the distances.
Three Workouts Weekly
The work this term will be com
posed of three workouts a week on
Hayward field. The old system of
indoor training has proved unsatis
factory, and the work will be con
tinued outside for the entire term.
Weight men and others will prob
ably have inside muscle work and
limbering up exercises.
The training schedule as an
announced by Hayward for the
term will consist of a gradual con
ditioning of the team, with empha
sis placed on endurance? for the
first part and more on speed as
the time of the meets approach.
The foundation of endurance in the
training grind will be made this
term, according to the program as
outlined. .
The schedule starts off this week
end on Saturday afternoon and will
continue ever week until the season
is over. The 600 yards for 440 men;
1100 yards for 880 men; one and
one quarter mile for miles; and the

slow but will serve as a means to

Don McCormick, freshman bask
etball star, and former all-state for
ward, who was taken ill suddenly
in Portland with spinal meningitis,
will probably be able to convalesce
in Eugene, it was announced by
physicians in Portland yesterday,
if his present rate of recovery is as
marked as it lias’ been.
“He is coming; along very nicely,
far better thaAc'ould be expected.
Although he i®not out of danger
yet, he is rapidly* recovering from
the severe attack,” said Ur. Leon
ard, his physician in Portland. “He
has been able to 'sit up every day
for a few moments. His spinal cord
is practically normal.'"
Ur. Manlove, the specialist who
assisted with the case, stated that
his recovery was the most rapid he
has ever seen, considering the vio
lence of the attack.
Arthur R. Himbert, assistant pro
fessor of business administration,
left yesterday for Portland, where
he will attend the meetings of the
secretaries of chambers of com
merce and of the Oregon State

Virtuoso Receives Ovation
From Portland Audience
For Work in Symphony
Paul Koehanski, famous violin
virtuoso, will appear tonight at the
Methodist Church auditorium in
what promises to be one of the most
popular recitals of the year. Ko
chanski played last night in Port
land in conjunction with the Port
land Symphony orchestra, and was
given a great. ovation for his work
hi tne Brahms concorlo.
He is a violinist of the first
-»nk, and judging from the size
of his audiences in the Pacific
Northwest, is one of the most en
thusiastically received artists on
Debut in Brahm Concerto
Koehanski came to this country
without any particular introduction
or advance advertising, and in his
debut at New York he played the
Brahmss* Concerto with the New
York Symphony orchestra under
the direction of Walter Damrosch.
He was received with such enthu
siasm and popularity that he was
immediately in demand over the
whole country, and he has retained
that popularity during all of his
The violin on which he will play
is one of the very oldest instru
ments in existence, having been
made by Stradivarius in 1687 when
that famous violin maker was doing
his best and most distinctive work.
This violin was owned at one time
by the Spanish crown, and after
changing hands many times it fin
ally came into the possession of
Koehanski, who uses it at its very
best. The tonal qualities of this
instrument are supposed to be as
good as any in use, according to
Hill, of London.
Doors Open at 7:30
The concert tonight will begin at
8:15 and students will bo admitted
by their student body tickets, which
must be presented at the door. The
doors will open at 7:30 sharp, and
close after the first number on the
program, after which no one will
be admitted.

Unusual Scarfs
Dyed in Lovely
Colors for Use
A set of new scarfs, some to be
used by the regular gymnasium
classes, and a few to be used for
the Orchesus dance drama, were
dyed by the senior majors in phy
sical education Saturday. The work
is part of the credit in the course
in theory of dancing.
One of the most unusual scarfs,
was dyed to represent a snake skin,
and will bo used in “Midsummer
Night’s Dream” to cover the fairy
queen when she is asleep in her

sing the song “Ye Spotted Snakes”
by Mendelssohn, during the time
she is sleeping.

were some of the strenuous expos

yesterday from the hard-working
auctioneers of the Women’s League
Rummage sale. The crowd, pre
dominantly masculine, with a small

rear stood for four hours in front
of the library, bidding, laughing
and shivering alternately in the
sharp damp atmosphere of the win
ter day.
By two-thirty in nhe afternoon
the whole stock of goods was ex
hausted and Mary West who was in
charge, reported that over sixty
dollars was made. This money will
be added to the foreign scholarship
fund of Women's League. In view
of the fact that the rummage was
held fully a month sooner than last
