Soft Ball Tilt
Yeomen To Meet Sigma;
SAE, SAM Will Vie
Favorites To Capture Flag
In Donut Tourney Are
By JOSEPH SASLAVSKY
The playoffs for the intramural
soft ball championship will get un
der way Monday, when two games
will be played, each starting at
4 p. m. In one contest, the Yeo
men and Sigma hall will do bat
tle, while the Sigma Alpha Mu
and Sigma Alpha Epsilon nines
are trading hits in another tilt.
The Delta Tau Delta squad, the
fifth and remaining aggregation
which will vie in the title series,
drew a bye and will be hors de
combat until Tuesday afternoon at
4 p. m., when it will oppose the
winner of the Yeomen-Sigma hall
The probable conqueror of the
donut title is an unknown quan
tity. The Yeomen and Sigma hall
teams probably have the better
hurlers, with Sol Schneider and
Lyman Wiltshire on the hillocks,
respectively, but one team will
drop out of the running after their
fray is completed. The SAE ros
ter is probably the best all-around
team, with a wonderful infield and
a good outfield which have been
pillars of strength in helping Don
Eva, the SAE tosser, with his
The Delt combination is a
powerhouse in hitting strength,
and Bob Holmes on the slab should
be able to hold his own. The Sam
mie nine is a fairly good outfit
with Les Goldschmidt in the box,
but do not seem to measure up
to the strength of their first oppo
nents, the SAE’s.
The probable batteries for Mon
day’s games are as follow:
Yeomen—Schneider and Wicks.
Sigma hall—Wiltshire and Ruff.
SAM—Goldschmidt and Roten
SAE—Eva and Phillips.

Good ole Buck Bailey! What
would a ball game be without this
colorful figure on the sidelines?
Buck is the genial coach of the
Washington State Cougars, and
it’s two to one that he figures he
won yesterday’s game single
handed. He’s the forepiost expo
nent of college “luck” methods,
and the contortions he doesn’t go
through during a ball game are
not worth mentioning.
* * *
Boy, what a hole Buck dug in
front of the Cougar players’
bench! He’s a mammoth fellow
with huge hands that remind one
of steam shovels. Whenever his
boys got in any kind of a hole
down went Buck’s paw for a scoop
of “sod.” At the close of the Cou
gar victory a look at the Wash
ington State bench reminded one
of an excavation for the Wool
worth building. Thus it is a sure
thing that Buck didn’t have many
restful moments even though his
outfit did win the ball game.
Ken Scales suffered two bad in
nings, the second and the eighth,
when the Cougars scored three in
each. But for those two innings,
Scales had the situation well in
hand. His out-drop was working
to perfection and it looked as if
there was going to be a few
broken necks among the Washing

The baseball college was very
much in evidence. Those poor
freshman football stars certainly
took a beating. Austin Colbert
was not exempt from a slight
"hacking,” either. He was caught
"high-hatting” the boys and took
the consequences. A total of four
“piggers” took the grade, too.
More power to the baseball col
* * *
It was during the eighth inning
that Buck Bailey got going again.
First of all he walked up to the
! orderly arranged bats and kicked
them in all directions. Then he
j started a never ceasing call,
I "Fourteen hits and fourteen runs!”

Believe it or not, the Cougars did
collect three runs on five hits.
There must be something to the
Bailey system after all. It was
during this inning that Buck gave
the crowd a big laugh when he
picked up the squad water bucket
and downed the whole thing.
& * *
Probably the biggest treat of
the game was the exhibition put
on before the start by “Smoky
Joe” Lillard and Buck Bailey, and
also two Washington State play
ers. It was an unexplainable treat
to behold. Joe is playing profes
sional ball this year and Bailey is
an old-timer of note.
All in all it was a well-played
game, and one worth seeing. The
Cougars showed a well-balanced
attack, but the Webfoots still
think it possible to conquer the
men from Pullman, and will be out
for blood this afternoon, when the
two teams meet again at 2:30.
Lillard and Bailey will again be
on the scene to give the crowd a
treat, and it will be the last chance
for the fans to see the league
leading Cougars in action.

Spaulding Hopes To Have1
Victorious UCLA Team
For Coming Year
By STU ART~MILLER
UNIVERSITY OF CALIFOR
(Exclusive to Emerald)
NIA at Los Angeles, May 6.—
Is 1932 the year when Coach
Bill Spaulding will lead the U. C.
L. A. Bruins out of the desert into
the promised land?
Westwood seems to think so,
and Herr Spaulding certainly does
not deny the fact. In fact, the
genial guider of U. C. L. A.'s grid
fate is the chief dispenser of the
Let’s see what it is that makes
the campus and the coaching staff
First there's the matter of re
turning lettermcn, of whom
Spaulding is blessed with no less
than 20. The Bruins lose but four
outstanding men in Len Wellen
dorf, the all-Coast end; Dick Mul
haupt, another stellar wingman;
Captain Norman Duncan, fullback;
and Lloyd McMillan, tackle.
Heading the list of returning
regulars is Lenny Bergdahl, quar
terback and hero of U. C. L. A.’s
12-0 victory over St. Mary’s, and
Bobby Decker, Bergdahl’s half
back running mate. These two are
a whole backfield in themselves
and will be supported adequately
by the presence of Joe Keeble, the
pile-driving halfback whom Spauld
ing plans to chance over to a full
back, and Mike Frankovich and
Walt Clark, shifty ball toters from
the 1931 freshman squad.
In reserve backfield material,
Spaulding has plenty. He has no
less than four extra quarterbacks
in Joe Berry, Johnny Fletcher, Ed
Hassler, and Briggs Hunt.
Halfbacks are plentiful with
Bob Hendry back from the varsity
and ‘‘Pants’’ Livesay, “Sleepy”
Lightner, and “Pat” Patterson up
from the freshman squad.
The fullback post, however, will
probably cause Spaulding some
trouble. Not only has Captain Dun
can graduated but also his second
and third string understudies,
"Howie” Roberts and Aubrey
Grossman. Joe Keeble will be
made over from fullback to fill the
gap, but a capable substitute will
be difficult to find.
It is on the line where the Bruins
should win their games next year.
The entire forward wall is com
posed of veterans, four of whose
members are seniors.
While critics expect Spaulding
flanks to be weak with the loss of
Wellendorf and Mullhaupt, the re
turn of Bill Maxwell and Walt
Stickel insure the Bruins adequate
strength at the wings. The ends
are further made potent by the
presence of Sinclair Lott and Ralph
McChesney, freshman stars.
Sapulding's line from tackle to
tackle should fairly generate pow
er. Starting at center and go
through the list. For a first string
pivot man, the Bruins have Cap
tain Homer Oliver, 203 pounds. His
substitute is Lee Coates, another
beefy gentleman of about 190
Up to guards and there you have
Gordon Jones, “Spec” Haslani, Ed
Austin, and Chuck Williams. With
the exception of Haslam, the
guards weigh around 185 pounds.
Haslam and Jones have the inside
track on the first string positions
In Jones, Sapulding thinks he
has a potential all-coast guard if
not an all-American. Jones is
stockily built, weighs around 185
pounds, and is very fast for his
size. He leads the Bruin interfer
ence as running guard.
The tackles are another strong
point in the Bruin attack. Hert
Spaulding has the services of
Houghton “Eat" Norfleet, a veter
an of two years’ standing; Mike
Dimas, Ed Rafferty, Kearrx Hamp
ton, regulars; and Muller and Me

bles, and the like, but Spaulding’s
present needs seem well cared for
already and any additional mate
rial will have a hard time making
Not even the most optimistic is
ready to admit the Bruins have
arrived. That is a matter of an
other five years, at least. But
many believe next season will stand
out as the beginning of outstand
ing gridiron success at U. C. L. A.
Spaulding, in checking over the
schedule, sees Oregon as his tough
est foe. The 13-6 defeat last sea
son so soon after U. C. L. A.'s bril
liant triumph over St. Mary’s left
a sour taste in the head mentor’s
mouth, and he is determined to up
set the Webfoots on October 15
at Portland if he does nothing else.
The Stanford game on October
29 here will be THE game, provid
ing the Bruins are undefeated up
to that point. If the Reds and
Bruins face each other with clear
records on that date, a capacity
crowd is anticipated at the Olym
pic stadium. A victory over the
Indians will definitely put West
wood "over the hump" in football.
The Bruins open the season
against Idaho here on September
30, rest until October 15 for the
Oregon game, then rest again un
til the Stanford battle on the 20th.
They jump back into things on
November 11 against St. Mary's
in the traditional Armistice day
Olympic stadium. Spaulding’s
charges then get another rest until
November 24, when they meet
Washington State here. Following
that contest, the Bruins play
