HISTORIC BATTLEGROUND TO BE
CLEARED FOR BUILDINGS
Hayward Field to Include Track and
Pits; Practice Gridiron and
Diamond to Be Adjacent
x When the students return to Oregon
in September' historic Kincaid field
will be no more. By that time the
grandstands will be torn down and the
ground cleared and graded away if
present plans are carried to comple
tion during the summer. In the
meantime a new practice gridiron
will be laid off on the grounds ad
jacent to Hayward Field and dress
ing rooms and showers installed be
neath the new grandstand. The turf
on the new football field will be
kept trimmed and watered during the
summer by a caretaker, Graduate
Manager Marion McClain says, and
in the fall will be for match games
Plans have already been designed
by a New York architect for the
construction of a modern cinder track
around the gridiron on Hayward
field. This track will he of gravel
or rock base with drainage connec
tions and will be covered by 13
inches of cinders, grading from very
coarse near the bottom to a fine
mixture of cinders and clay on the
surface. Space for the shot put, pole
vault, broad jump and other field
events has been reserved between
the grandstand and the football field
in order to keep the playing surface
free from holes and indentations
such as Kincaid now has. If money
is available these improvements as
well as the construction of a baseball
diamond just south of the new foot
ball field will be carried out this
summer also. With a modern track
campleted McClain is quite certain
Oregon can secure the Pacific Coast
Conference track meet for next
spring. At least he is going to make
a strong bid for it if he is able to
carry out the plans for the comple
tion of Hayward Field before tliAt
“The Oregon football field will be
the prettiest one on the coast this
fall”, McClain said in commenting on
the appearance of the well set turf
after a summer of careful attention.
OREGON FIVE’S RECORD
GOOD; PROSPECTS BRIGHT
(Continued from page 9)
Lynn McCready is another one of the
old heads at the game. He was unable
to make the trip south with the boys
owing to the fact that his wife had
the flu at the time. Marc Latham, the
varsity’s big center from Salem, was
a big fighter. He liked to break up
passes and mix into dribbles.
Captain Lind Lost to Team.
Oregon’s outlook for next year is ex
ceedingly bright ((according to the retir
ing captain and the captain-elect for
the coming year. The quintet is only
losing one man. Herm Lind has played
his allotted time on the squad. Then
there are some bright looking pros
pects coming from this year’s fresh
man team, according to Shy Hunting
ton. McEntee, Clarin, and many oth
ers of the first year men will make a
bid for positions on next year’s five.
Too much sickness and a schedule
which piled up games too close to
gether kept them from duplicating the
championship record of last year’s
team. Eddie Durno was kept out of
several of the games on account of
sickness. Oregon’s heavy football
schedule, which lasted until the first
of January when the eleven played
Harvard at Pasadena, kept the hoop
ers from getting an early start. Other
teams in the conferences had had
weeks of practice before Oregon be
Defeat Opens Season.
Whitman defeated Oregon in the'
first game of the season, but the var
sity five came back strong in the sec
ond game and sent the missionaries
Wednesday, January 21, Captain
Herm Lind, Francis, Beller, Lynn Mc
Cready, Eddie Durno, Nish Chapman,
Marc Latham and Coach Huntington
left Eugene for the Sundodgers* camp.
Oregon won a fiercely fought contest
ir. the second game hy a score of 29
to 26. Washington went strong in the
start and ran up an 8-point lead on the
lemon-yellow players, but the Eugen
ians came to their own later and suc
ceeded in making it anybody’s game
for the rest of the game, Oregon scor
ing the winning points in the last
three minutes- of play.
The Sundodgers took the first game
from the varsity by a 3S to 26 count.
Tt was W-shington’s first conference
game of the year and it was charac
terzied bv good shooting, speedy foot
work and accurate passing.
Willamette Falla Victim.
January 29, the lemon-yellow five
defeated Willamette University 38 to
31. Oregon won the game on a spurt
during the last five minutes of play.
Durno and Chapman were easily the
stars of the game. The Salem club
started out strong during the first part
of the second contest, but were unable
to stand the strain and they went
idown to a defeat by a 38 to 22 score.
The hardest week-end of the season
came the first week in February. It
was a chance either to put Oregon
well in the lead in the conferences or
, drop back to a place from which it
j would be very hard to recover. The
I University of Washington and Wash
I ington State College were here for
| three games straight. Pullman was
coming from the south where they had
battled with the Bears, coming dut on
the small end of 28 to 26 score.
Thursday night the Cougars nosed
out the varsity by two points. The
score at the end of the game stood
129 to 27. The Washington staters
stopped for only one game.
The strain of the battle with the
staters had been too much for the
Oregon team and Friday evening
Washington gave the varsity the small
end of a 19 to 23 count.
Overtime Game Played.
With a great exhibition of Oregon
fight the varsity five came back strong
J the second game wit^i the Sundodgers
i and in an overtime contest of two five
minute periods, sent them home with
the little end of a 23 to 20 score.
The old jinx seemed to be with the
Oregon Aggies and the varsity an
nexed two games. The Corvallis club
seemed to have no special difficulty in
taking games from other teams in the
conferences, but the old custom beat
them at Eugene. The two pames at
Corvallis were called off on account of
a flu ban, which the city health offi
cials had put on the Aggie campus.
Oregon dropped two games to Stan
ford on their Jaunt south. Oregon di
vided honors with the Blue and Gold.
Stanford’s two games here were
played behind closed doors on account
of the flu ban which the city officials
had clamped on, and the southerners
walked away with both games. Only
the subs, game officials and coaches
were allowed at the game.
