William W. Cobey, graduate manager of athletics, and athletic .publicity director Joe Blair conducted a five-barrelled "open house" tour-for the press, as the .imposing arena is a fiv:-level affair. ... ' . The coliseum is built in the shape of an amphitheatre, radically different from most college gymnasiums. The.main floor sinks 33 feet below ground level and tiers of seats are arranged in a gigantic bowl, just like a football stadium. This method of construction -lessen* ed the building costs considerably, as it eliminated'the need for a lot of detailed structural frame. Since there are no girders to obscure the view, not a single . seat can be considered bad. The seats, incidentally! are of form-fitted molded wood, complete with arm and back rests. They sparkle '.vith the Maryland State flag colors of red, gold, black, and silver grey. f ' The Activities Building is as wide as a football gridiron, a third again as long and reaches up to a height of 100 feet.from the main •floor to the rooftop. The playing •area is laid off 94 feet in length and 50 feel in width, maximum dimensions permitted for collegiate basketball. » In addition to the.32,004 permanent seats, there is room for 4;000 more seats, if needed. A smaller gymnasium equipped . for'badminton, - fJycasting, volleyball, gymnastics and special facilities for boxing, wrestling, tumbling nnd body-building went into use a few weeks ago. A swimming pool is still in the process of construction. Besides the playing and spectator facilities, the outer periphery of the building provides offices and classrooms for the College of Physical Education, RecreaUqn, and Health. There are also smaller rooms for .boxing and wrestling, with one unique feature being sleeping facilities for visiting teams and .combination apartment- offices for visiting coaches. Toilet -.facilities are more than adequate for capacity crowds, built-in concession stands arc located at vantage points throughout and pay. telephone booths are also built in so as to provide absolute privacy. There are acoustical ceilings in the phone booths, as well as in the main lobby, promenade and corridor. Toilets and shower rooms have ceramic tile floors, the playing floor is maple wood; stair treads, platforms and landings are albc- rcne stone 'set in reinforced concrete slab.

Other previous winners of the O'Donnell Trophy were Michigan, Notre Dame, Tennessee, Michigan State and Maryland. Oklahoma, leader of the weekly polls for four weeks preceding the final ballot, wound up its season with a ,53-0 walkover against Oklahoma A&M, its 10th victory of the season and 29th in a row.

Irvin Returns To Majors In Cubs Uniform COLUMBUS, Ohio W> — Monte Irvin, whose big bat played a key role in the New York Giants' miracle finish in 1951, is coming back to the major leagues at the ripe old age of 37—this time with the Chicago Cubs. The slugging outfielder, abandoned by the Giants last summer, iwas the only big name among the 10 minor leaguers selected by the majors for a total of $115,000 in yesterday's annual draft session, which officially opened the winter baseball -meetings: Only One Trade Although an unusual number of big league managers were here, only one trade was consummated. The Chicago Cubs sent Hal Jeffcoat, a'fair relief pitcher, to the Cincinnati Redlegs in an even-up exchange for Hobie Landrith, a second-string catcher. The Cubs, in desperate need of a strong right-handed outfielder, plucked" Irvin from Minneapolis, he Giants' farm club in the Ameri:an Assn., for the $10,000 draft price, beating out at least two tl er clubs—Detroit and Cincinnati. If Irvin can come anywhere near the .352 batting average he posted with, the Millers, he will )rovate a real bargain. Nat Choice Surprise 'Chicago also took title to pitcher Vito -Valentinetti from Toronto. Valentinetti had a 9-15 record with Charleston last season. The Cubs were the only club to choose more than one player in ,he lightest draft since 1945 when :he same number of players were selected. The biggest surprise was Washington's selection of a practically Gassers Shut Out City Pacesetters Pyrofax Gas .tightened the race in the Ladies City Bowling League by knocking off pacing Blue Bonnets, 3-0, to move within a game of first place.

W — Virginia's worst football season in listory has .left coach Ned McDonald uncertain as to his own 'uture, but the lanky Texan is assailed by no doubts whatever when le sizes up the future- of the Cava- iers' prize fullback,- Jim Bakhtiar. "Narrie it and BSkhtiar's got it," says McDonald. -"He'll be the best darned fullback.in the country." -- From a total gain of 28 yards :n Virginia's first two games to 31! in its last two—that's the progress report on Bakhtiar, a handsome, ine-smashing Iranian hailed as a .ikely "Sophomore Back of the Year" before the 1955 season started. '• Good On Defense Backs-of-lhe-year aren't .ordinarily chosen from football teams which win only one game in ten- Virginia's dismal record "and one which is expected -to lead to McDonald's resignation. in a week or o. But Bakhtair didn't let his admirers down. The 205-pound import from Abadan piled up 73c yards rushing and was a tower of strength on defense. "Jim is a young man with a tremendous future," says McDonald, "and he should be hitting a mighty stride next year ... I only wish we could have turned our season around, putting the end at the beginning. We were just learning to make the most of him when ji was all over." 'Prince' To Teammates One of the oddities of the Virginia season was the,unconscionable length of time it took Virginia quarterbacks to wake up to Bakhtiar's talents. In the Cavalier's first two games he was handed the ball only 10 times and went for only 28 yards. By comparison,, in Virginia's last two games, Bakhtair's number was called 47 times. He responded by amassing 163 yards against North Carolina and 152 against South Carolina. Bakhtiar is called "The Prince" by his teammates — a nickname that isn't inappropriate, since the sophomore star is a relation of royalty in his native Iran. Actually, unknown pitcher, right-hander Conrad Grob,-' from Montreal, as the No. 1 pick. Grob. 23, had an 11-9 record at Mobile before being moved to Montreal. ' The second choice went to Pitt's- Durgh, which selected Jack McMahon, a southpaw on the Denver roster who turned in an 11-5 record for Birmingham last season. Baltimore picked first baseman Bob Boyd off Rochester. A former outfielder with the Chicago White Sox, Boyd batted .309, drove in 94 runs and hit 15 home runs al Houston.

(NEA) Richard Harding Davis and Jake Robeson received $54 to sponsor Lehigh's first football team 91 years ago. tho'ugh,. the nickname is an out growth of his popularity. Modest and unassuming, Bakh- Liar's a whiz in the classroom as well as on the football field. A major in chemistry, he has courses in psychology, English literature Italian and anthropology and is on the dean's list. He plans to be a doctor.
