vnumns TCTCVTT UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 27, 1926_ NUMBER 67 Rulings Changed by Hoop Officials 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 cials. * * • "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 (Continued on page two) Frosted Dainties to Please Co-Eds Will Be Served at League Teas No longer do- reluctant freshman women attend Women’s League teas to avoid punishment from stern up perclassmen; no longer does one hear the Bored ejaculation, “Oh, those teas are all just alike,” or “Oh, I’m too busy to go.” Have the freshman girls reform ed, or become suddenly repentant? Neither and here is the secret. . . new cookies! It is the truth. Those famous rectangular specimens of pastry known among Oregon co-eds as “Women’s League cookies” are a thing of the past. In their place have appeared a delicious tempt ing cookie with real frosting be tween the layers. If you don’t be lieve it, girls, come this afternoon from 4 to 6 to the Women’s League tea in the Woman’s building and find out for yourselves! DEMOLAY VAUDEVILLE TODAY AT M’DONALD -L. '!^l, 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 plav, “In the Zone,” by Eugene O’Neil. 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 act. 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. DR. SKIDMORE TEACHES Dr. W. R. Skidmore, graduate of the University of Oregon, is now professor of chemistry at Ottawa university, Ottawa, Kansas, accord i ing to word received here by Dr. j P. L. Shinn, of the chemistry de I partment. SUMMER STUDENTS GET NEWS FROM BULLETIN BOARD PAPER 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. (Continued on page four) TRACK TURNOUT BIG, B UTMOST . ASPIRANTS NEW 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 discus. The times will probably be slow but will serve as a means to determine the strength of the team.

FRESHMAN HOOP STAfi IS RAPIDLY IMPROVING 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.

PAUL KOCHI VIOLINIST, TO BE BEARD TONIGHT A. S. U. 0. Tickets to Admit Students; Affair To Be At First Methodist Church 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 tour. 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 tours. 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 inDanceDrama 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 fairy bower.

Gome on now, What d’ye say? Fifteen cents? Who will make it sixteen? Why just look at that hat, only fifteen cents? Twen ty—Twenty-five? That’s fine! We’ll take T. O. TJ.’s if you hav en’t the cash! Come on folks!” were some of the strenuous expos tulations heard all over the campus yesterday from the hard-working auctioneers of the Women’s League Rummage sale. The crowd, pre dominantly masculine, with a small er number of co-eds bringing up the 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 year, the officials of Women's League felt that the sale was a real success. The auctioneers were Clar ence Toole, Jack Seabrook, Dick Lyman, Benoit McCroskey, Fred Martin, Bob Officer and Boh Mc Cabe. Besides the articles from the Uni versity depot which were sold by Women’8 League, a collection of books-by Colonel Johu Leader, sev eral paintings and some book ends were sold for the benefit of the Art Museum. Over five dollars was added to that fund. A group of freshman girls assist ed the auctioneers by faking the articles to the purchasers and re ceiving the money.
