and get a poor start. Any of these
things might deprive a runner from
a record he really deserves—he
should be afforded every possible
advantage, not hindered by rules,
he should be given credit for what
he can do under normal conditions,
not be deprived of credit for what
he did not do under subnormal con
It seems no more than fair that
if a man breaks a record in any
meet in the presence of competent
officials and timers that his record
should hold as the coast record, he
broke the Tecord under fair con
ditions which is all that can rightly
be asked of any one
Buie Is Hindrance
That this rule is a hindrance to
the records on the coast is appar
ent by the number of faster times
that have been made than the
present figures show. Out of the
fifteen events listed in the meet,
nine better marks have been made.
In previous years things have been
the same. The 440, 8 80, 1-mile,
2-mile, 120 high hurdles, 220 low
hurdles, broad jump, shot put, dis
cus have all been broken and the
100-yard dash and 220-yard dash
have been tied already this year.
Hendrickson of California holds
the record in the 440 at 49 3-5 sec
onds, whils Miller of Stanford this
year ran it in 48 3-5 seconds. Dodge
of O. A. C. holds the record in the
half-mile at 1:561-5, while Richard
son of Stanford ran it in 1:55 flat,
and Boyden of California ran it
even faster. Wakeley of Oregon
holds the mile record at 4:28, while
Carter of Occidental ran it in
4:19 4-5, Clayton of O. A. C. ran
it in 4:24 4-5, and a high school
boy ran it in 4:20 4-5.
Wells Holds Records
Wells of Stanford holds the low
hurdle record at 24 2-5, and the
high hurdles at 151-5, while Leist
ner also of Stanford this year ran
the lows in 24 flat and the highs
in 14 9-10. Merchant of California
holds the broad jump record at
22.91-2, while Flannigan this year
jumped 23.41-2. Jenne of W. S.
C. holds the pole vault record at 13
feet 5-8 inches, while a high school
boy vaulted 13 feet 1 5-8 inches.

like lack of playing fields. But the
officials and managers met and de
cided to play and drew up a sched
u!o. Next the rainy weather played
havoe with the schedule and other
meetings of the managers wore call
ed and these difficulties were soon
ironed out.
Last Saturday the big day arriv
ed—the playing of the final game
—Beta Theta Pi was pitted against
the strong Phi Gamma Delta nine.
This promised to be a close score
as both teams had put away their
competitors in a workmanlike man
ner. From all indications this prom
ised to be a hurling duel between
Limy Flynn of the fijiers and Wal
ter Eldon Lambert, for the Beta’s.
However, the hard hitting aggre
gation of Lambert backers soon put
the game away with numerous and
long hits.
The Beta’s finally won the con
test with a 9 to 3 score and snlted
away the doughnut baseball cham
pionship for the 1925 season. The
playing in all contests showed a
vast improvement over any pre
vious Beason, more intensified in
terest took preference and large
turnouts of spectators viewed the
output of the neophyte ball toseers.
Figures for the season show the
Beta Theta Pi, Phi Gamma Delta,
Sigma Nu and Bachelordon all had
championship contending teams and
the last three were nosed out by the
Beta aggregation after hard and
close fought contests.
“If everything goes off next year
I will feel I have organized a won
derful system of handling dough
nut activities which could not Have
been organized except for the
hearty cooperation of the managers
and team players themselves,” said
Mr. Earl.

have a chance to beat some of the
other men out should come out and
sign up. But he ■will prune his
squad down to a workable number.
One thing Bill is sure of and
that is the matter of grades. Every
■man who reports will be required
to turn in his complete grade, card.
The ineligible men on the varsity
have given the mentor too much
worry and disappointment so that
next year he will have an accurate
check on every varsity track man
who turns out.
The season starts next fall—not
next spring, with varsity cross
country. Bill Hayward will work
all of his distance men down to the
quarter-milers in the cross country
competition. He thinks that they
need the ground work that cross
country will give. The cross country
meets it is hoped will develop Ore
gon's week end of the team—that
is, distance men.
The first meet of the season will
be with Stanford University some
time in April. This has been defin
itely decided on. The value of the
Stanford meet this year, the first
since the early days of track, was
demonstrated very clearly, and it
will be a regular meet on the var
sity schedule from now on.
The list of men whom Bill has
picked for his squad next year.
Present freshmen are mixed in with
the varsity.
100 — Holt, Extra, Westerman,
Kuykendall and Allen.

Few Men Lost
The varsity loses few men this
year. Big Jim Kinney, who devel
oped into a powerful quarter-miler
under Bill’s training, stepped into
the shoes vacated by the varsity
quarter-milers before him and filled
them with a great deal of credit
to himseir. rhis is Kinney’s last
year. Kinney stretched out his long
legs for the last time in competition
on Hayward field last Saturday.
Henry Tetz, hard working miler,
another man developed >y Hay
ward, met some of the hardest com
petition on the coast in his races
in the three years he has been
running on the varsity. He’s the
man who fought it up in every
race he entered against great odds,
to the finish.
But the prospects of the varsity
appear rosy now, before old demon
flunk has put all hopes by the way
side.] Chick Rosenburg, consistent
high winner, will be back. Walt
Kelsey, as versatile as this year’s
captain, will form another main
stay. Francis Cleaver will be com
peting his third year in the hurdles.
Extra, Holt, Westerman and Flan
nagan will bolster up the sprints.
In the broad jump Flannagan and ^
Rosenburg will probably be first
placers. Price, Cash, Wilbur, Ager
and Hermanee are a crew of 440
men who will fill the vacant shoes
efficiently. New men are coming
up in the weights. Prosh who show
promise are included on Hayard’s
list. The most outstanding men
were picked after the freshman
season was over.
Students of U. of O. have favored this store with a business
exceeding all former years. You have thus heartened us to
even greater efforts in service giving. We extend to all our
heartiest wishes for a happy and successful vacation.
