^JPORT fans who are interested in
^ frosh athletics certainly have
a prize dish awaiting them today.
Both Duckling spring athletic
squads; namely, the baseball nine
and track team, go into action for
the first time. And to muke things
the more enticing, the baby Ducks
oppose the Oregon State rooks in
both contests.
Ardent followers of the year
lings won’t get to see all of this,
however, for while Bill Hayward
is sending his freshman track
men against the Orange year
lings at Hayward field, Johnny
Londahl will be putting his
frosh baseball nine through its
paces in Corvallis.
In both places the frosh will
have to work wonders to come
through on top; that is, if pre
season dope dished out by writ- '
ers on both campuses can be de
pended upon. The frosh have
the weakest track squad in
years, and, although a few stars
are available, it takes more than
a few good men to win a relay
On the diamond the frosh are
more powerful, but they cannot
match up in early performances to
the Corvallis one-year-olds. Lon
dahl has a galaxy of stars in Dc
Launey at second, Gordon at short,
and Stroble at first, but there is
no hitting power With the ex
ception of Gordon, who is the one
polished player on the squad, few
of the yearlings can smack the
apple with regularity. . . . An.I j
plenty of hits will be needed
against the rook lineup of slug
* * *
Bill Hayward will give his
varsity spikesters a rest this
week. There is no competition
of any kind on the slate, but it
is doubtful if the boys will let
their minds wander far from the
cinder track what with such ex
cellent entertainment as the
Washington-Oregon State meet
being staged just across the
back fence. Just a week from
tomorrow the Colonel will pack
his athletes off to Seattle
where they will tangle with the
Huskies, and the Webfoot cln
dermen will probably not want
to miss such a chance of see
ing their coming opponents in
action as will present itself
tomorrow in the Benton county
As for the meet. Well, things
look pretty dark for the Beavers
though they did trounce Oregon’s
relay squad last week-end. Last
year the Washingtonians smoth
ered the Orangemen under a 92 to
38 score, and, although Hec Ed
mundson wouldn't be justified in
expecting such a slaughter this
time, he expects to do dire things
to Stiner's lads.
Well, Lon, I guess you can take
’em, all right.
* * *
Commodore Bill Reinhart will
chug out of Eugene at high noon
today, headed, via auto caravan, to
Monmouth where his sluggers will
clash with the Monmouth Normal
tossers. Here's the first chance to
see how the Webfoots will look
away from home, and also to see if
Ike "Benny Baseball" Dcnin can
get the breaks.
No more fence balls, Ike.
"Gentlemunly qualities" were
rated first by men beauty winners
in an Oklahoma Teachers' college.

Baton Bearers
Yearling Classic To Be Held on
Hayward Field at 3:80;
Dixon Has Stars
It has been eight long years
since the Oregon freshmen have
taken a relay meet from the
Oregon State rooks. The last time
the Ducklings took the Beaver
Babes was back in 1025, and from
the looks of things the young
farmers may add another digit to
their long list of victories when
the two squads meet tnis afternoon
on Hayward field at 3:30.
Jim Dixon, rook track tutor, is
supposed to have a strong squad
of runners and according to re
ports, they have shown good form
but lack experience. Bob O’Don
nell, former Grant high sprint
star, is rated as the number one
sprint man for the rooks. To date
he has shown plenty of class in
time trials.
Norm Reynolds, former Corvallis
high school quarter mile ace, will
run anchor lap for the Beaver
frosh on the mile relay squad. In
pre-season races against the O. S.
C. varsity track, Reynolds has
shown plenty of class.
Guggisberg Is Star
The rook three-mile team is com
posed of Noack, Reitz, Gilmore,
and Ernie Guggisberg. Guggisberg,
former Cottage Grove high school
distance ace and state interschol
astic champ in the mile last year,
is one of the most promising rook
track prospects to enter the Cor
vallis college in many a day.
Howie Patterson, who scored 15
points in the meet against the
high schools last Friday, and Dick
Mears, who covered the century in
10.2 in a trial heat last week, are
Hayward’s hopes to save the laur
els in the -MO and 880 relays.
Bob homas, a husky young ath
lete from Jefferson high in Port
land, is the only yearling on the
frosh squad to show any promise
in the quarter mile event. Last
week Bob lapped the track in 55

Fourteen Men Will Make
Trip To Corvallis
“Little Civil War” To Begin
At 4; Londalii Hopeful
Of Win Over Books
If it doesn't rain today, Johnny
Londahl will load his frosh base
ball team into a bus and travel to
Corvallis, where the opening of the
baseball ‘‘little civil war” is sche
duled this afternoon. Due to the
lack of transportation, it will be
only possible to take 14 players.
Four outfielders, 1 catcher, 4 in
fielders, and 5 pitchers will make
the trip.
In the outfield will be Hanley,
Johnson, and either Eddie Vail or
Fred Lieuallyn. Lieuallyn has been
out for a couple of weeks with a
bad stone bruise on his heel, and
he may get back into action to
day. Vail has been playing good
ball lately, and may break into the
lineup in one of the other outfield
berths, if Lieuallyn gets in.
Londahl's star infield will be in
action intact, with ‘‘The Great”
Gordon snaring them at short,
Marv Stroble will play first, and
Drew Copp, the fiery red-head will
cover third. At second will be
“Rabbit” DeLaunay, whose big bat
broke up the game against Eugene
high last week, when he smacked
out a triple in the 10th with two
men on.
Five pitchers will make the
trip. "Speed” Thuneman will prob
ably get the call for the opener.
He has shown more every time
that he has pitched this season,
and if he continues as he has been,
hits should be very scarce for the
rooks. The other four hurlers,
Whittaker, Kolkowski, Bucknum,
and Holland, will be held in reserve
in case that Thuneman fails to
stop the heavy hitting rooks. The
lone catcher making the trip is
Bunny Butler of basketball fame.
Butler has turned in some classy
backstopping this season, and the
rooks are going to find it hard to
steal second.
The game is scheduled for 4:00
o’clock and the team will leave
here at 12:30, going as far as Cor
vallis with the varsity, who are
en route to Monmouth.

posters from the Bureau of Infor

The posters are of brilliant color
and are interesting from an artis

memoration of the anniversary of

They are clearly of a propaganda

Whitney Buys Kentucky
Farm; To Move Stables
NEW YORK, May 4.—(AP) —
The purchase of Old Hickory farm,
near Lexington, Ky., by C. V.
Whitney meafts that the famous
young horseman will move his
breeding and training quarters
from Brookdale at Red Bank, N.
J„ to the blue grass country.
Although Whitney does not own
Brookdale, the two names are
synonymous, for both the father
and grandfather of the present
master of the Eton blue and brown
silks bred and trained there the
horses which made the name of
Whitney important in turf history
of the century.
From 1903 the Whitneys leased
the farm from Col. W’illiam Pay
son Thompson.
Webfoot Nine
Plays Normal
Squad Today
Came To Be at Monmouth;
Ducks Leave at 12
Reinhart Not Yet Certain as to
Starting Battery; Rest of
Lineup Is Unchanged
Weather permitting, the Oregon
Webfoot baseball team will leave
today by automobile at approxi
mately 12:00 o’clock, bound for
the first game of a home and home
series with the Monmouth normal
school nine. The Ducks will re
turn late tonight in readiness for
the second contest with the Teach
ers on Reinhart field tomorrow.
Present w-eather conditions have
made regular practice almost im
possible, and Commodore Reinhart
will doubtlessly be forced to start
a “cold” team against the Teach
ers. Workouts have been held in
the Igloo of late, and there have
been no sessions on Reinhart field
during the past two days.
Reinhart plans to take his en
tire pitching department on the
trip. He has not yet decided on
the choice for today’s game, but it
will probably be Ike Donin. Donin,
the lad who was knocked out of
the box in the first Columbia
game last week, should be back
in form again and show the Teach
ers some expert, chucking.
-VT TV 1 Hf oar
There is also a possibility that
the Webfoot mentor may start one
of the many new hurlers who an
swered his call this season. There
is Cece Inman, a right-hander who
lacks nothing but experience to
turn into a finished moundsman.
Then there is another right
hander in the person of Lorin Car
michael, who has already pitched
one good exhibition in an earlier
contest against the Eugene Town
ies. Others include: Bud Van Dine,
who is changing off between an
outfield ber.th and a hurling posi
tion; Ivan Ginther, recently turned
out for the first time this year,
who has quite a puzzling under
hand delivery; and “Lefty” Knee
land, who has been bothered by a
sore hurling arm all season, but
might be in shape. He is the sole
left-hander on the squad.
Gemmell, Charles Saved
Ed Charles and Ron Gemmell,
the two remaining pitchers on a
squad of eight, will undoubtedly
be saved either for the Saturday
game or some future contests.
Both worked against the Cliff
dwellers last week and hurled
great ball. Gemmell, the ace of
the squad, is the probable starter
The starting lineup will consist
of practically the same nine men
that ushered in the baseball season
last week. Unless Reinhart makes
some unannounced changes, the
Webfoot lineup will be as follows:
Either Shaneman or Hoag, catch
er; unannounced pitcher, probably
Donin; Chester, first base; Chat
terton, second base; Sears, short
stop; Garbarino, third base; Clau
sen, left field; Green, center field;
and either Shaneman or Hoag,
right field.

tary, said that any student not
certain of his standing should call
