pitcher. Paust pitched the only
game which O. S. 0. was able to
take from Oregon last year. “Chief”
Thompson, Indian Oregon State
slugger, probably will catch for
them. f
Les Johnson, first base; Ken

shortstop; and Harold Olinger, third,
will make up the Oregon infield.
Johnson and Robie are veterans.
Andrews and Olinger will be> play

Oregon State also has two letter
men and two sophomores in the in
field. Grayson and Pennell, first
and second base, starred on the
rooks last year. Quayle, shortstop,
and Ilafenfelt, third, are the Aggies’
experienced men. ’
The Oregon outfield will be se
lected from four veterans, Cotter
Gould, Ray Edwards, Dave Epps,
and Carl Nelson, and one sophomore,
Kramer Barnes. Nelson is a utility
man and may be used either in the
outfield or in place of Johnson at
first base. Epps, Edwards and
Barnes started the game against
Meiji and will probably take the
