14 U. OF W. MEN
COME FOR MEET
OUTCOME OF TRACK CONTEST
WITH THE SEATTLE TEAM
OREGON ENTRIES ANNOUNCED
Hayward Makes No Predictions, But
Says, Meet Will Talk for
Prepared to make a favorable show
ing against the track team of the
University of Oregon tomorrow after
noon on Kincaid field, fourteen Uni
versity of Washington track athletes,
under the guidance of Coach Dr. D. C.
Hall, are due this evening on the 7:50
train from Seattle.
Washington comes like the pro
verbial “dark horse.” Except for the
old men it is impossible to prophesy
the dope to any degree of accuracy.
Bill Hayward, as usual, will make
no predictions, but says, with just a
shadow of a grin, that he would rath
er have the meet talk for itself.
Hall Has Few “W” Men.
Coach Hall, of Washington, de
plores the fact that his,> team is crip
pled this year for the lack of “W”
men, through ineligibility and regis
tration difficulties. Nevertheless he
predicts that his men will make an
unexpected showing and spring a sur
prise tomorrow. “The men have been
training very consistently,” said Dr.
Hall, “and I have every confidence in
their success, but it is rather discour
aging to see so many good men in
college unable to participate in the
meet.. I am sure that with the pres
ent squad we could take any meet in
the Northwest this year.
The Washington tear1- after leav

they have a contest scheduled for
May 13 with the Aggies.

Washington downed Oregon yester
day in the first game of the series, 5
to 1. Boatman was on the firing line
for the visitors and that tells the tale
of the game. This boy pitched as
| fine a game of baseball as will ever be
seen here, having speed, control and
breaks that kept the Oregon team at
his mercy throughout. Oregon is
credited with four hits, but only two
of them, pokes by L. Bigeee and
Chandler, were of the legitimate or

Fitzgerald, in fielding an easy fly,
tangled with the second sack, did a
shadow dive act that was real comedy
and muffed. The fourth was chalked
up against Boatman when Chandler
beat out a questionable throw to
first. Eight Oregonians whiffed and
none drew a pass from Boatman’s
serving. He pitched one great game!
Bigbee Had Nothing on Ball.
“Babe” Bigbee started for Oregon
but was wild, walking four men, and
ineffectual, apparently having noth
ing on the ball. He was the logical
selection to beat Boatman, but was
suffering from that malady that ef
fects all hurlers sometimes, an off
