Oregon Frosh and Washington Babes Tangle In Track
At 4 Begins
‘Hec’ Edmundson Brings
Lowry, Dash Star, Must
Do 10 Flat in Century
To Beat Pendleton
By CHAL N00E
Thirteen may be unlucky for
some, but Coach “Hec” Edmund
son, track mentor o£ the University
of Washington, is bringing that
number of freshman tracksters to
Eugene for the dual meet this after
noon. At 4 o’clock the Husky
Ki’-cs and the Webfoot frosh will
start burning up the cinders.
Somehow • Coach Bill Hayward
doesn't seem quite so lucky. He has
lost so many promising freshmen
from scholastic and anatomical dif
ficulties that he has kept himself
hidden away so that he might not
( hear of more losses. He actually re-,
fused to go near the “Igloo” for
fear that another frosh might be on
•he laid-up list.
When the gun cracks for the cen
rury dash this afternoon, Lowry,
Tuttich and F. Hill-will leave their
marks in a hurry. Beside them, also ^
engrossed in the process of getting |
under way, will be a Washington
freshman called Pendleton. Mr.
Pendleton is fast. At the Seattle
relays Lowry nosed him out in the
100, but lost to Pendleton in the
220. Lowry is conceded a good
chance in both races today but he
will have to make 10 flat on the cen
tury to beat Pendleton.
Hill, Sellers to Battle
Ralph Hill, the frosh’s star mileT
■who did his four laps in four min
utes and 27 seconds at Cdrvallis,
will be there when the mile is called.
He told Hayward yesterday that he
felt like going. In Sellers, Wash
ington frosh miler, Hill is gojng to
meet some real competition. Sellers
runs the race in something like four
y minutes and thirty seconds consis
Seigmund and Maltby will take
the low sticks for Oregon, and Seig
mund will run the high' ones with
out a partner. Whiting will skim
them for Washington. Seigmund
will bear watching today for he is
determined tb lower his times in
Washington seems to have it all
their way in the high jump. Ras
mussen is said, to jump consistently
over six feet. Everts and Wood will
leap for the Webfoot frosh.
Hall Good Point Maker
Oregon has a point maker in Hall.
As a shot putter he is varsity ma
terial right now. He will be helped
by Christensen. They will also
throw the discus.
In the pole vault, the frosh have
Maltby and Boone. Maltby ts con
ceded a good chance of winning the
event but he will have to go up;
around 12 feet and a half to be near
or ahead of Rasmussen, the Wash
Sprints—Pendleton and Brown.

trous defeat- Wednesday at the
hands of the Oregon state rooks,
the freshman baseball team jour
neys to Corvallis tomorrow morning
for the second of the series with the
O. S. C. first year team.
The batteries for the frosh to
morrow are undecided as yet. With
three of his best pitchers hit,
walked, and errored out of 14 runs
Wednesday, Spike Leslie, frosh
coach, is in a quandary as to which
hurler he should start in the second

stuff. This big sticker has been
having difficulty so far in getting
a bead on the tall but the last few
days he has been cracking it with
some semblance of his old form.
Yesterday in the practice tilt with
the Eugene team he hit one across
the pavement bordering left field
and jogged into home plate before
the ball was back on the diamond.
Cotter Gould has a good chance
of starting in center field. Cotter
has been joining the ranks of the
hitters lately. Wednesday he got
two lusty cracks through center for
a single and a double.
Ick “Pioneer” Reynolds has been
working out in right field with Ed
wards. He is a general utility man.
He can catch, play first base, and
his latest field of endeavor is pinch
hitting. He’s a handy man to have
on the club.
