PAVING OF OVAL
"C( )STS OVER*$16,000
State Spends Large Amount to Make
Road To Knowledge Smooth,
Intrepid Reporter Finds
Just to smooth out the rough spots in
the road to knawledge the state of Ok-
lahoma expended $16,584.45 for paving
the oval from Boyd street to the Admin-
istration building. The time was when
the erstwhile student while riding the
"Yelow Peril" thought he was getting
his education in the "School of Hard
Knocks," but now he may ride around
the oval with as much pleasure and sat-
isfaction as a railroad president gets as
he rides in bis special train.
Sand, rock, and cement were the prin-
ciple ingredients used in the new pave-
ment, according to J. P. Crane, direct
supervising agent for the state. He stat-
ed Thursday that it took approximately
02(10 sacks of cement, 440 tubic yards of
sand, and 675 cubic yards of rock to
complete the 4,558 square yards of pave-
ment. Three thousand six hundred thir-
ty-five linear feet of curbing bounds
the new oval.
Professor J. F. Brooks, head of the
department of Civil Engineering, has
seen to it that the state received the
best possible returns for the amount of
money spent. In order that the pavement
would have the maximum of final
strength, it was cured by a process
known as "ponding."
The M. R. Amerman Co. of Wichita,
Kansas, had charge of the work. They
began laying concrete at noon, June 2,
and had completed the oval on June 6.
Work on the curbing began June 17. and
was finished on June 20.
There is a fall of two and a half feet
in the pavement from the Administra-
tion building to Boyd street, Mr. Crane
further stated, which is sufficient for
proper drainage. The earth excavated
before laying the pavement amounted to
1,554 cubic yards.

CEMENT COURTS TO
BE OPENED IN FALL
State Constructs Hard-surfaced Ten-
nis Courts for Use of Varsity
Two cement tennis courts will be op-
ened up for University of Oklahoma
varsity players September 15 just south
of the R. O. T. C. armory, according to
J. 11. Craven, university landscape gard-
ener. These are the first hard surfaced
courts built on the Sooner campus and
will give varsity racquet men an oppor-
tunity for year-around play. There is
hardly a month in the year when there
are not some days suitable for tennis,
provided the players have a cement court
to work on.
These two new courts will also be us-
ed by state high school racquet men for
championship plav during the annual in-
terscholastic meets. Last May inter:;cho-
lastic athletes were forced to move their
championship matches to the cement
cnuits of the Oklahoma City tennis club
at Kith and Classen boulevard, Oklaho-
ma City, because of the constant rain
which softened the clay courts here.
Funds for the construction of these
courts were provided by the state. They
will be painted green during August,
w hile the steel backstops are being erect-
ed, Craven states.
