Looking Back
WSC 9, OAC 7.
A Great Game.
JJISTORIC old Rogers field at
Pullman, Wash., was the scene j
of a great football game early in
October of 1928.
The contesting
teams were
State college and
I? Oregon State col
lege, the latter
then being known
as the “Oregon
Aggies,” a name
^it since attempt
ea to live down
C!>.ef Thompson with indifferent
success. Betting on the game was
practically at a standstill. All the
northwest’s football money that af
ternoon was concentrated upon
Portland, where Washington and
Oregon met again in the renewal
of their traditional gridiron feud.
None of the players who took
part in the game at Pullman is
still in college, although the coach
es, Babe Hollingbery of W. S. C.,
and Paul Schissler of O. A. C., are
the present incumbents of those
posts. Washington State had a
team composed largely of sopho
mores, men who became celebrat
ed stars three years later when
they brought the Pullman school
its first Pacific Coast conference
football championship. On the oth
er hand, Oregon Agricultural was
a veteran team, led by the great
Howard Maple, who later that sea
son achieved national recognition
as the hero of a stunning 25-to-13
victory over New York university.
-lust after the kick-off, Porter
I.ainhart, a young' sophomore
from Goldendale, Wash., whom
the Cougars were relying upon at
left halfback, was stricken with
an attack of appendicitis. On
the spur of the moment Coach
Hollingbery decided to use Don
MacDonald, a slender junior, in
Lainhai t’s place. It was a move
he never regretted.
O. A. C. took the initiative at
the start and worked the ball
deep into Washington state ter
ritory before the first quarter
was ended. Only MacDonald’s
long punts kept the Aggies away
from the goal line. But finally
the roly-poly Maple’s slashing
runs had their desired effect, and
in the second period the O. A. C.
quarterback scored a touchdown.
The Aggie lead was increased to
seven when Coquille (Chief)
Thompson, Indian guard, con
This left the Cougars seven
points in arrears, and so it stood
when the gun barked at half time.
Then came the third quarter and
with it a plunging, hammering
powerhouse in MacDonald. The
slim halfback tore the Aggies to
shreds with his desperate line
rushes. Through the entire period
he maintained his piercing drives
and the early part of the last quar
ter saw him advance the ball to
the one-yard line. From there
Lloyd Hein plunged into scoring
territory. The conversion failed,
however, and defeat once more
stared the Cougars in the face.
Then MacDonald started again.

^’Indicates years of competition
Oregon’s basketball regulars
yesterday agreed that John Fuller
of the University of Washington
j was their foremost opponent this
season. In naming an all-opponent
five, the Webfoots cast a unani
■ mous ballot for Fuller, the Huskies’
I principal threat on their belated
drive to the championship.
. Although regarding Fuller as the
■ outstanding player, the Oregon
. men voted for him as a forward
j and not a center, the post he
played in the majority of Wash
ington’s games. For the pivot po
: sition the Webfoots selected Hunt
j ley Gordon of Washington State,
j leading scorer of the northern di
I vision. Claud Holsten, also of W.
| S. C., was voted for as Fuller’s
i running mate.
At the guard posts, the Oregon
players selected Ken Fagans of
Oregon State and Art McLarney
of Washington State. This com
bination includes three Cougars,
one Husky and one Orangeman.
Fagans was a narrow choice over
Ned Nelson and Ralph Cairney,
both of Washington, While Hol
sten also was pressed for his berth.
; Gordon was a far and away choice,
j Fuller, of course, led the pack. In
i cidentally, the Washington center
i whom the Webfoots respect so
! much will return next year.
Those who received honorable
j mention in the voting were Ralph
j Cairney, Hal Lee and Ned Nelson,
| all of Washington, D. E. Lacey of
j Idaho and Bobby Cross of Wash
j ington State.
He leaped into the open field and
j got to the Aggies’ 30-yard line
before he. was caught. Three min
utes were left to play and the
Cougars still trailed, 7 to 6. Mac
| Donald had taken a terrific beat
I ing from the big O. A. C. linemen
and his zipper was gone. His first
1 two attempts failed to produce any
i material amount of yardage. Hol
lingbery jumped up from his place
on the bench and rushed to where
! Lainhart was stretched on the
1 bench.
He grabbed the stricken soph
omore and rushed down the field
' with him to the vicinity of the
play. MacDonald saw them com
ing and knew what to. He skirt

where he was downed. This

hobbled in and replaced Mac
Donald. The mud-smeared Don
trotted off the field amidst an
outburst of applause that reverb

hills like claps of thunder.
The crowd was suddenly silent
as Lainhart stepped back to

Books on Work of
Thomas Condon
In recognition of the 110th an
niversary today of the birth of
Thomas Condon, professor of geol
ogy in the University of Oregon
when it was first founded, a few
books and pamphlets have been
added to the collection of photo
graphs, now on display at the li
brary, of the Oregon campus and
faculty in early days.
The pamphlets and books are
opened to photographs and pas
sages in connection with Professor
Condon and his work. Additional
copies of the material used for the
display are available for circula
The material consist of a pam
phlet, "Thomas Condon" by Ches

as Condon, Pioneer Geologist of
Oregon” by Ellen Condon McCor

memory of the geologist.

ly for the ball, crouched on one
knee. Behind him stood the tall
sophomore, his tense figure out
lined against the golden back
ground of the setting sun. The
ball shot back, Hein snapped it
down, Lainhart kicked—quickly
and surely—and the oval sailed
in a long parabola through the
goal posts. A minute later the
gun roared and Washington
State had won, 9 to 7.
That game is still an epic at
Pullman. The old grads and stu
dents who saw it never will forget
Lainhart’s last-minute efforts nor
MacDonald’s desperate rushes in
the final half. No championship
hinged on the outcome of the bat
tle, but it was one of those en
counters that makes football the
great sport it is.
On the same day Oregon out
classed Washington, 28 to 0, be
fore 27,000 persons at Portland. It
was a lop-sided encounter, exactly
the opposite of the tense combat
at Pullman. It marked the end of
Washington's long dominance over
northwest football and saw Chuck
Carroll, later a unanimous choice
for All-American halfback, stopped
in his tracks by the Webfoots.
Johnny Kitzmiller first leaped into
the headlines that day. The Flying
Dutchman scored two touchdowns.
Bob Robinson and George Burnell
got the other Oregon scores.

Reinhart Bemoans Absence
Of Experienced Moundsmen
Webfeet To Stake Baseball
Hopes oil Swatters,
Veteran Fielders
A veteran infield and outfield
and prospects of a good hitting
club are the only rays of hope
Coach Bill Reinhart sees in Ore
gon’s chances in the coming con
ference baseball season. The Web
foot coach announced yesterday
that he had every confidence in
the ability of his men to hit, but
was worried about an apparently
weak pitching staff.
Ken Scales, regular hurler last
year, Ike Donin, member of last
year's freshman pitching staff and
Ossie Edwards, a transfer from El
lensburg Normal school, are the
only likely looking moundsmen
who v. ill be out when Reinhart
calls out the battery men next
Monday. Workouts will be held in
side McArthur court until the
weather permits practice sessions
on the regular diamond.
Outside of the pitching box, how
ever, Reinhart has few worries.
Except for the third base post the
complete last year’s infield will be
back. Leland Chester and Cliff
Potter alternated at first base last
year. Harry McCall, star of last
year's freshman team, will also be
on hand.
Captain Johnny Londahl is prac
tically without competition at sec
ond base. Kermit Stevens, two
year veteran, and Mickey Vail are
the foremost shortstop candidates.
Two newcomers will fight it out at
third base. They are Robert (Gip)
Chatterton and Mike Mikulak.
Brian Mimnaugh and Slug Pal
mer are the only returning out
fielders. Two football players,
Bree Cuppoletti and Bud Pozzo are
also candidates for one of the gar
den controls.
Duke Shaneman and Chappie
King are both back to alternate
behind the bat. Shaneman is the
harder hitter but King is known as
the steadier player.
Reinhart has little to worry
about as far as power behind the
bat is concerned. Scales, the
pitcher, hit above the .300 mark
last season. Several others aver
age above .300.
Oregon will play a 16-gamo
schedule similar to that followed
in basketball. The opening game
will be with Oregon State on April
29 at Corvallis.

Track Managers
To Hold Confab
At Igloo Today
Entry lists for the intramural
track and field meet to be held
Saturday have not as yet been
filled. Owing to the inadequacy
of the lists of entries to date,
another meeting of track repre
sentatives from each house on the
campus will be held this afternoon
at 4:30 in McArthur court.
It is imperative that those men
who attend the meeting be out for
track themselves so that they have
some knowledge of the logical en
tries. It has been the fault of the
representatives in previous ses
sions that they know nothing
about the athletes of their own
particular houses, and have there
fore caused the posting of errone
ous entry lists.
Bill Hayward, coach, states that
it is important that a man from
every house be present at the
meeting as all entries must be
filed by tonight, due to the fact
that first heats in a number of
the events will be run off tomor
