For Big Meet
Made This Season
Cougar and Washington
Editor’s note: This is the first of
;i series of articles by Jack Burke,
giving the relative strength and
the comparative times made this
season by the teams entered Jn
the Pacific Northwest Conference
track meet to be held at Pullman,
Washington, May 31.
With two barriers in the form
of dual meets with Oregon State
and Washington successfully
surmounted, the Oregon track
team may now turn its attention
to the Pacific Northwest Confer
ence meet which will be run off
next Saturday, May 31.
Oregon has been very success
ful in the past two meets, but in
the big meet many factors will be
present that are not found in the
dual competition. There will be
entries from five colleges in the
Northwest entered in the Pullman
races and events, Oregon, Oregon
State, Washington, Washington
State, and Idaho. Montana may
be represented and here another
unknown enters. The Montana
men are noted for their speed and
as they have not been in competi
tion in the Northwest this season
nothing is known of their strength.
Other factors which will deter
mine the fate of the Lemon and
Green squad is the distribution of
first places. Oregon took nine
first places from Washington and
tied for a tenth in the high jump
In the Oregon State meet the Web
foots took 12 firsts.
The century will find a trio of
speedsters competing. Tyrrel
Lowry, Oregon; Pendleton, Wash
ington, and Foster of Washington
State. By times made Foster
must be given the edge as the big
Cougar made 9.9 against the Hus
kies to Beat Pendleton, who in
turn was beaten by Lowry. John
son, the Oregon State hope in
this event has not turned in as
fast times as have the other run
ners anil Ije in turn holds a win
over Jossis the best Idaho entry.
This would give the Washington
State team a first in this event
with Oregon and Washington vie
ing for the second and third posi
The best time in the 220 turned
in this season is 21.2, made by
Pendleton, Washington, against
Washington State. Against him
in this race will be the group
which will compete in the 100 and
Paul Bale of Oregon who set a
new Oregon-O. S. C. mark of 22
flat in this event last Saturday.
Bale, Pendleton, Lowry, and Fos
ter should fight for the places in
this event with the Husky star
taking a slight edge.
Two more fust places go to
Washington in the hurdles with
Steve Anderson on deck. Ander
son hasn’t been approached this
season and the big question is who
will take the remaining places in
Lowry, of Oregon, has beaten
Whiting, Anderson's team-mate
in the low sticks and has also
beaten his own team-mates and
Prentiss of Oregon State. As
Whiting finished third in the Hus
ky-Cougar meet this would give
Lowry a good chance against
Whittington, the Cougar, for sec
ond, with third place a toss up be
tween Ed Siegmund, Oregon, and
Prentiss, Oregon State, in addi
tion to the one who loses out in
the fight for second.
In the high sticks, Anderson
again is a cinch. For second place
Martin of Oregon State looks
good although lie was shut out in
the Idaho meet by Lemp. Sieg
mund beat out O'Neill of Wash
ington who came in close to
Steve's heels against the Cougars
and was in turn beaten by Martin.
So second and third should be hot
This would give Washington
three firsts with the other first
place going to Washington State
Seconds and thirds in these four
races should be evenly divided
with any edge going to Oregon.
Tomorrow times and showings
in the middle distances will be re
iterated. In these events Oregon
looks much better.

Baseball team back after
loss of four northern games,
losing two; Frosh in form;
Hayward saving Ralph Hill.
By PHIL COGSWELL
The Oregon varsity baseball
team is back after a rather un
successful tour of the Northwest.
1 The team won two games from
Idaho, but dropped two games to
both Washington State and the
The Webfoots encountered mis
erable weather after playing
Idaho. At the Cougar camp the
first game was played in a steady
drizzle and losing this contest
seemed to have a bad affect on
| the team's spirit. The Cougars
I scored a flock of runs in the la.st
' half of the ninth while, although
j it was pouring rain, the umpire
| refused to call the game. The next
: game against Washington State
! was played on the football field
because it was impossible to use
the regular diamond due to the
mud. Ken Scales, one of Oregon's
two best pitchers, played in the
1 outfield during the game and
twisted his ankle badly. This cost
the team his services against the
* * *
Despite the fact that at Seattle
a steady and cold wind made base
ball playing very unpleasant, the
Webfoots and the Huskies had a
real battle in their first game,
which Washington finally won, 2
( to 1. The second game was easy
for the Huskies. They took it,
5 to 0. This gave them the lead
, in the conference again with nine
victories against two defeats.
Only three games remain on the
Duck baseball schedule. These are
all against Oregon State. The
Staters have one game to their
credit, but with a little recupera
tion the WebfOots will give them
a battle for the remaining three.
* * *
Bill Reinhart can look with
pleasure on the frosh baseball crop
coming up for next season. Jack
Hughes is one of the best pitchers
the fro. '.i have had in a long time.
He has plenty of speed and good
control. All he needs is experi
ence. Then there is Peter Schmitz,
who is handicapped by a twisted
leg, but has a wonderful throwing
arm. Peter can make that ball
curve marvelously. In the last
rook game he pitched, he lost, but
he struck out 11 men.
Ted Jensen is probably the lead
ing slugger in the frosh ranks.
He was going great in the last
game and knocked the ball all over
the field. The fielding of the
whole frosh team has been good.
LeRoy Shaneman is another star.
He should make a regular receiver
for the varsity next year.

For Northwest in
Hill Lets Steele Win Mile
Then Finishes Second
1 Oregon varsity runners ran true
to form to defeat Oregon State
Saturday 77 to 54 at Corvallis.
The lemon yellow and green squad
took the lead in the first event on
the afternoon’s program and the
Beavers never succeeded in catch
ing up with the Oregon runners.
The Orangemen were able to take
only four first places, including,
the relay which Coach Bill Hay
ward conceded to the Corvallis
team. Homer Dickson set a new
Northwest javelin record of 195
feet 11 1-4 inches to feature the
Homer Dickson and Tyrell Low
ry headed the Webfoot point get
ters with eight points. Virg
Schreiber, sophomore dashman,
upset the dope in the hundred to
beat Lowry and Johnson, the Ore
gon State star, to the tape in
:10.2. Lowry won the 220 low
hurdles to cop his other five
points. He didn’t enter the 220
yard dash and Paul Bale, another
sophomore, came through to win
it for Oregon in :22 flat.
Beavers Win 880
The Orangemen made their
strongest bid in the 880 when
Young and Johnson placed one
two to garner eight points be
tween them. Pat Moran was off
form and finished third. Martin
won the high hurdles and Bergu

only other first places won by the
The Oregon mile board of strat
egy succeeded wonderfully well in
the mile run with Steele placing
first and Ralph Hill, who last week
broke the world’s intercollegiate
record, coming in second. Hill was
content to jog along and let
Steele set the pace. Mullins,
Orange runner, was obviously
waiting for Hill to sprint and take
the lead but he waited too long.
Steele finished with a comfortable
margin while Hill toyed with Mul
lins and finished a, stride ahead of
him. Afterwards, Hill admitted
that he had cooked up the game
Everts Beats Rival
Bob Everts won the high jump
from his old rival, Carter, with a
leap of 6 feet, and Hubert Allen
jumped 21 feet 101-2 inches to
win the broad jump. Bobby Rob
inson had to go to 12 feet 9 inches
to w'in the pole vault but Coach
Hayward decided not to let him
try for a new' record for fear of
Captain Ed Moeller showed his
old-time form in the discus and
easily won with a toss of 150 feet
6 inches. Clarence Hill covered
the two-mile run in 9:47.0 and he
was not pressed. He ran his usual
deliberate race and finished with
many yards to spare.
