Records May Fall
When Frosh and
Two Men in University of
Oregon Babes ‘Hopped Up’
Over Coming Event
With prospects of coast and
national records being bettered
the Oregon frosh trackmen are pre
pared to meet the University of
Washington babes on Hayward field
Saturday afternoon. Dope is not
available as to how the meet will
end, but from the comparisons that
can be drawn it is evident that it
will be neck-and-neck with the
Washington has two men who at
the present time hold both national
high school and national freshmen
records. These men are Anderson
in the hurdles, and Kiser in the mile
and the half-mile. Last Saturday
Anderson ran the high hurdles in
the extremely fast time of 14.8
sec., and he has consistently run
them in under 15. This is faster
time than has been run on the coast
this year in any college meet. In
comparison the times made here last
Saturday was 16.0 while that at O.
A- G. was 10.1. In the low hurdles
he gets about 25 seconds which is
good for a first in the Northwest
Kiser Fast Miler
Kiser, the other man, is one of
tho finest milers in the country at
the present time. For the last two
years he has won the mile at the
National Interscholastic meet at
Chicago and has not lost a race in
interscholastic competition. He con
sistently runs the mile in less than
4.22 and Saturday hopes to beat
4.20 which will without a doublj
break any freshman record that
has ever been made.
Nothing can be learned about the
rest of the team as their enrty list
has not been received yet. The
teams entered are composed of 18
men and are limited to three mien
in any one event.
Stadleman on Sliot-put
On Oregon’s part there arc no
stars, but nevertheless several out
standing men. Stadleman in tho shot
and javelin evonts lias been making
good marks, getting as far as 43
feet in tho shot and consistently
puts it over 42. No record lias boon
kept of his throws with the javelin,
but he has been getting some good
casts. Stadleman lias not had com
petition and what he will do is
McKennon is another good all
around man. He runs the quarter in
under 52, and the high hurdles in
10., and lie gets a good heave on tho
McCarty in the quarter has been
making good time and under pres
sure will get around 51.
Browne in tho dashes and kelley
in tho hurdles are both good for
points. Brow no is a very strong
runner and will make fast time if
ho is forced. Kelley is Hie best bet j
the frosh have in the hurdles, his I
best times being made in the low |
hurdles. There are several good
half milers with Web Haves being
the pick of tho lot.

Sigma Nu by 7-6 in
Sigma Nu and the Independents
scratched and chewed their way
through a hectic three extra-inning
ball game yesterday afternoon. The
claws of the Independent outfit
proved the sharper by a 7 to 6 mar
At the beginning of the fifth in
ning the Independents led 3 to 1,
and the boys were gathering up
their bats to go home. But the Sig
ma Nus decided they didn’t want
to go home just yet. With two men
out they started a little five run
rally that put them in front 6 to 3.
Behnke tripled and DeBusk was
hit by a pitched ball. Behnke scored
on Warren’s single. Then came the
prize play of the year. Dahl lofted a
high fly over the pitcher's box. The
whole infield got together, but no
body caught it. Someone picked the
ball out of the scramble, and heaved
it toward third base, but third base
man was gathering daisies in the
distance. The ball sailed into thq
outfield and Dahl .raced home, clear
ing the bases.
The Independents evened up the
count again in their half of the
fifth. Chastian singled scoring Har
bon; Chastian came in on Packer’s
double who then scored on an error.
A long sacrifice fly by Goetz tallied
the winning run in the eighth.
The Independents chalked up two
runs in the first when Harbon and
Nelson crossed the plate on Old’s
bingle. Sigma Nu counted one in
the third when Davidson fanned
two men in a row, but Packer, In
dependent catcher, thought it was
three and walked away from the
plate, letting in Dallas.
Yesterday’s defeat eliminated
Sigma Nu. The Independents will
play the winner of the consolation
round to qualify for the finals.

“The contributions of central
