in Last Round
Increases its Speed
Tennis Shows Increase;
’ By GLEN GODFREY
Tn the annual fall tennis tourna
ment, tlie last lialf of the scmi
finals was won by Sherman Lock
wood from Howard Shaw yesterday.
The score was 0-0, 0-1. Hard fore
hand drives were the feature of the
match. Sherman Lockwood, with
the possible exception of Ahnquist,
has shown the speediest drive of
any man entered in the tourney.
Sherman Lockwood will be
matched with Stanley Almquist this
afternoon at 3 o’clock. Almqui,st
and Lockwood have played doubles
together, but they show keen rivalry
when matched in singles. Both
men understand each other’s Weak
nesses and the tilt promises to be
one of the best held on the courts
for some time.
Both From South
Stanley Almquist came to Oregon
from the south; his home being at
Oakland, California. He was the
Pacific coast junior champion two
years ago. Ho annexed the Oregon
state doubles championship with
Herb Suhr as his partner last year.
At present ho is holder of the
Northwest doubles championship
with John Risso.
Stanley Lockwood is another boy
Who holds California as his place of
residence, as lie hails from San
Biego. He has had some experience
playing matches in the East. Lock
wood is now I ho present holder of
the California, Oregon, Washington
and British Columbia doubles cham
pionship with Bradshaw Harrison.
The doubles tournament contains
much good material and the players
show good form, assorts Edward E.
Abererombie, coach. The first part
of the doubles tourney has proven
that, the Oregon racket men will
at least come up to the standard set
by last year’s team.
Interest in tennis is growing
every day, as was proven when a
total of 3(> new tennis aspirants en
tered the annual fall singles tourna
ment. This is the biggest turnout
for tennis on record at Oregon, an
nounces Coach Abercrombie.
A small gallery of about 50 or 00
people watched the fast doubles and
singles that were played yesterday

Government Reclamation Project
Work of Dr. W. D. Smith This Summer
Geological inspection of tlie dam
site for the Owyhee government
reclamation project was one of the
several types of work in which
Professor Warren IX .Smith, head of
the geology department of the Uni
versity of Oregon, was engaged this
summer. His special task was that
of examining the rock formations
immediate- to and surrounding the
site selected for the Owyhee dam,
which will he the highest in the
world when completed. Hr. Smith’s
work was to locate any rock struc
tures which would weaken the dam
or cause the completed reservoir to
The project as first examined in
1004 and was recommended hy the
state engineer’s office again in
101(5, hut the final examination was
made this summer by Hr. Smith. His
report was given in person to the
federal hoard of consulting engi
neers, who made the final recom
Project Costs Millions
The Owyhee project when com
pleted will have cost the federal
government some twenty-one mil
lion dollars. The water will be
backed up by the dam fifty miles
with a width of from one to two
miles and a depth of approximately
three hundred and sixty feet. It
will furnish water for the irrigation
:>f more than one hundred and fifty
thousand, acres of land, the greater
part of which lies in Malheur
•ounty, Oregon. Malheur is the
French word for misfortune, and,
recording to Hr. Smith, is perfectly
ipplied to much of the country in
its present arid state.
The dam is to be built by F. A.
Banka, who constructed the Ameri
can Falls (Idaho) dam. He is a
graduate of the University of
Maine. Assisting him in the work
on the Owyhee project will he three
diamond drillers who worked on the
Boulder Canyon dam in Colorado.
Some idea of the stupendous size
of the undertaking, Dr. Smith points
out, is gained by the fact that five
years will ibe taken to complete the
dam. A railroad thirty miles long
is to be built to carry construction
materials to the dam site, located
about thirty-five miles by car from
Xyssn, Oregon, and up the Owyhee
river twenty-five miles above the
Snake river canyon. A camp of
twenty-one cabins and tents was
already located there when Dr.
Smith was carrying on his inspec
tion work this summer, and a small
city is expected to spring up when
the several hundred workmen who
will be busy on the construction ar
rive with their families.
Economics Dealt With
The economic side of the Owyhee
project has been thoroughly investi
gated. Many government irrigation
projects have proved unsuccessful
because of unmet payments, so a
long time has been given to pay out
on this project. No interest Will
be charged and the government has
fixed the price of the land in that
region to prevent speculation.
After leaving his work on the
Owyhee, Dr. Smith examined sev
eral projects in Idaho, including the
Salmon River dam. He also was in
terested in looking over the Twin
B’alls - Jerome bridge across the
Snake river. This is the highest
bridge in the world.

Pan Xenia Members

El wood Read, senior in foreign
trade, was elected president of Pan
Xenia, international professional
