The Emerald ♦
By Bruce Hamby
Inasmuch as this is exclusively a
freshman edition of the Emerald
it seems that it would be a most
suitable time for
a brief review of
?. freshman athlet
§ ics during the
* past year. Each
/ year brings a
new crop of prom
ising e x - p r e p
stars — “all
stars,” from the
length of the Pa
c i f i c coast. A
Cullison great number of
them fail to live up to advance no
tices, others don’t remain in school,
but some stand out as certain ma
terial for future varsity teams.
And this past year has been far
from an exception.
* * *
No review would be complete
without a list of outstanding men.
Starting off with the first sport
of the year, football, we find that
the names of Joe Lillard, Mark
Temple, and Mike Mikulak seem
to have appeared most frequently.
Lillard, well, little needs be said
about him. As a triple-threat back
he stood out among all coast frosh.
Temple was another half who stood
out due to his spirited play. Mi
kulak, an end last fall but now a
fullback, was the terror of oppos
Winter has set in and we find a
large group of yearling hoop as
pirants, again under the guidance
of Prink Callison, drilling in the
Igloo. Joe Lillard again stands out
in this sport. As center, he was
out-jumped by none and his bul
let-like passes dazzled his oppon
ents. Jack Robertson, Don Watts, j
and Ike Donin are three others who j
will make themselves known in the '
next three yea.rs.
Vying in favor with basketballj
last winter was swimming. Three
freshmen stand out because of rec
ord-breaking performances. Gor
don Corson, Merwin Rodda, and
Don Stevenson formed the nucleus
of the squad. Corson and Rodda
broke dual meet records against
the rooks and Stevenson holds the
Pacific coast freshman record in
the 440-yard free style. Corson is
regarded as a sure varsity pros
* * *
With the advent of warmer,
weather in the spring, sports j
boomed and more yearlings turned;
out—now for baseball, track, golf,
and tennis. All four sports are
still in progress but still, several j
stand out on each squad. Perhaps
the outstanding freshman aggre
gation of the year is the tennis
squad. Composed of Don Lewis,
Bob Johnson, and Dick Gold
thwaite, all former Portland court
aces, and Jim Edmiston, southern
Oregon champion, ,the yearlings
have swept every opponent. All
four seem to be sure prospects for
next year's varsity.

Pi Kaps Nose Out
Sigma Chi Team
j In Big Ball Game
By DOT WILLIAMS
At 1 o’clock this afternoon a
I thrilling baseball game was played
I by the Sigma Chis and the Pi
Kappa Alphas. This was a benefit
game, so both houses are deserv
ing of much credit—it was for the
benefit of the chance passer-by.
The Sigma Chi nine was made
up of 10 players, half of whom
I were captains.
For the Pi Kaps the outstanding
players were, if loud voices are to
be any means of judging, Coupe
letti,' Moore, Yerkovitch, Miller.
Quinn, and Ohler. Only captains
are listed for the Sigma Chis. They
were: Brown, Firpo, Esty, Chris
tensen, Goulet, Nigh, Stevens, Will,
and Red Wilson.
The game ended in an upheaval,
with a score of 11-9, approxi
mately, in favor of the Pi Kaps.
Highlights of the Game
The “Sigma Chi housemother”
was not playing today, as she re
cently fell and broke her leg and
is now up for repairs. The boys
expressed great regret.
Helen Chaney was present with
her Gerlinger cup, the contents of
which were to be awarded to the
winner. Due to the confusion in
the shack, the reporter was un
able to ascertain just what the
contents were. Anyway, the Pi
Kaps were generous and divided.
were unable to turn out for a sec
ond sport. Among the most prom
ising track and field men are
Frank Anderson, lanky miler, and
regarded by Hayward as second
only to Hill in that event; Norm
Daniels and Bob Voegtly, pole
vaulters; and a newcomer whom
Ha.yward thinks may develop into
a good hurdler, Mason McCoy. On
the diamond Harry McCall, first j
baseman; Ike Donin, pitcher, and
perhaps any of the infield men,
Vail, Goldthwaite, and Robertson,
may see varsity action in the next
The golf team has only partici

In commenting on this year’s
freshman sports, it is interesting to
note the result of a year's find with
the rooks. At present the frosh are
four up in victories. In football
and basketball the series were
split; with half of the baseball se
ries over the series stand even; in
Swimming and golf the frosh have
four wins, with return matches
due in tennis and golf; and the
rooks have a victory in track.
Lora Webb Receives Award
Lora Webb, senior in business
administration, was awarded the
Phi Chi Theta key at a formal din
ner held at the Anchorage Wednes
day evening. The key is awarded
on a basis of high scholarship and
personality. Last year Lucille Cor
nutt won the key.
j Annual Meet To Be Held
j At'Corvallis; 26 Men
Beaver Yearlings Favored
To Win; Hayward
Bill Hayward's yearling track
and field squad will participate in
i their one and only meet of the sea
j son when they face the Oregon
State rooks this afternoon on Bell
field, Corvallis. Twenty-six men
will make the trip.
Prospects for winning the meet
are low, very low, indeed, accord
ing to Hayward. Two first places,
and he's not sure what they will be,
are the limit of the mentor's opti
mism. In the dual relays the rooks
swept every event.
Frosh Have Some Chance
Events in which the frosh have
some cliance of beating out Lou
Stiner’s powerful rook aggrega
tion seem to be either the pole
vault or hurdles. Norm Daniels,
Irv Huesner and Bob Voegtly are
all experienced vaulters and John
Blew and Mason McCoy in the low
and high hurdles have made some
fair pre-season times.
Skeet O’Conneli, rormer Port
land ace, is expected to take the
100, 200 and broad jump for the
rooks and Norm Twitchell either
the 440 or half-mile. Joslin of the
rooks looks like a certain winner
in the shot-put and Anderson
should take the javelin.
The entries for the frosh:
100-yard dash—Siegrist, Wright,
200-yard dash—-Siegrist, Wright,
440-yard—Wright, Price, Weed,
Howlett, DePittard. -
Half-mile — Hammond, Nunn,
Mile—Downey, Gray, Von Ber
Broad jump—Burr, Flanagan,
Pole vault—Voegtly, Huesner,
High hurdles—McCoy, Blew.
Low hurdles—McCoy, Blew, Hei
Discus—Hakanson, Fury, Kei
High jump—Simpson, Daniels,
Mile relay— Wright, Price, Weed.
Howlett or DePittard.
