Oregon Scheduled To Vie
With Teachers Today
Long Delayed Games on Slate for
Reinhart's Nine This
After two weeks of impossible
baseball weather the Oregon Web
foots will attempt to display their
wares once again before the home
fans today when they tangle with
the Monmouth normal outfit at 3
o'clock. The two games previously
scheduled with the Teachers were
rained out last week-end and to
day’s contest, weather permitting,
will make up for one of the can
celled tilts.
With a total of ten days' rest
behind them the Ducks should be
in great shape for Monmouth.
Reinhart worked his boys out yes
terday in the first real practice
session of the week, holding a spir
ited batting practice and giving
his pitchers a chance to warm
their arms after the long lay-off.
Mac Turns to Mound
Reinhart added another prospect
to his swiftly growing list of pitch
ers yesterday in the person of A1
McKelligon. Mac possesses plenty
of stuff, including the best curve
on the club, but his control is
somewhat shaky. He was on the
hurling department last year, but
the Oregon mentor moved him' to
the outfield this season when it
was thought that there would be
a scarcity of material in the gar
dens. However, with the sopho
more material on hand showing up
well in the outfield McKelligon
will undoubtedly be shifted to the
pitching berth.
Pitching assignments for today's
game are as uncertain as they
were at this time last week As
before mentioned the Webfoot
skipper has a total of nine hurlers
from which to choose, and any one
of these men may be tossed into
the fray.
Three Warm Up
Three chuckers were warmed up
in yesterday’s drill, and it may be
that the starting pitcher today will
be chosen from this group of Lo
rin Carmichael, Cece Inman, and
The rest of the lineup will prob
ably be Chuck Hoa/J, catcher; Lee
Chester, first base; "Chip” Chat
terton, second base; Fred Sears,
shortstop; Krnie Garb'arino, third
base; Wes Clausen, left field; Bid
Greene, center field; and "Duke”
Shaneman, right field.
The Webfeet also have two
games scheduled with the Linfield
college nine for Friday and Sat
(Continued from Faye One)
years, and this progress is particu
larly notable in makeup and in the
greater attention given the editor
ial page. I believe the earlier edi
tors of the Emerald would be well
pleased with the progress made -
which is itself a challenge to fu
ture improvement.”
Karl W. Onthank, an ex-editor,
said, "It is very gratifying to see
the Emerald picked ns one of the
outstanding college papers in the
United States, and I feel that the
University of Oregon students and
alumni should look upon the Emer
ald with pride.”
Said Dean Morse of the law
school :‘The high rating of the
Emerald does not surprise me.
There is a need for critical jour
nalism in America. The Emerald
has helped supply that need. Al
though I have not always agreed
with the Emerald, I recognize and
appreciate its devotion to that
high journalistic principal.”
Said Dr. Gilbert, an ex-editor of
the Weekly Emerald of old: “I
was gratified to learn of the rat
ing received by the Emerald from
the National Scholastic Press as
sociation. The honor gives pres
tige to the University, and the
staff members should be compli
mented for their work. T believe
the rating was well deserved b\
the Emerald.”
George H. Godfrey, associate in
information, said he wished to
congratulate the members of the
Emerald staff and its editor. "This
is ample reward for the courage
and skill with which the paper was
edited and published," he declared.
"From many points it is the most
outstanding Emerald I have seen
in the 12 years I have been ob
serving the paper’s publication.”
The Emerald is a member of the
National Scholastic association
and as such received the critical
ratings. Sterling Green, editor
elect, last night declared he would
devote his efforts next year to (
cojialling or excelling this year’s
high record.
Then and Now
Here are two photos of Colonel If ill Hayward, Oregon traek men
tor, whose life story is now being printed in installment form in thr;
Emerald. They mark two widely separated stages in his eventful
career. On the right is the colonel as he looked iio years ago at the
University of California, while that on the left is familiar to all
Wobfoot sport followers—the colonel today.— (Oregonian photos).
Oregon Golfers
Awaiting O. S. C.
Match Saturday
Second Battle Looms for Varsity
Divot Diggers; I'rosli Have
Match With Eugene Hi
With one hard-earned victory
over Oregon State divot diggers
under their belts, Webfoot golfers
are waiting impatiently for the
second match that is to be played
here this coming Saturday. The
10 1-2 to 7 1-2 victory that they
eked out last week is an indica
tion thfit the going will be tough
and live outcome uncertain until
the last putt has been sunk.
The matches will be the same as
those played over in Corvallis -
Nassau style, according to Don
Moe with each team playing
three best ball matches and six
singles matches. The personnel of
the team will be virtually the same
as it was last week-end.
Frosh golfers have been as busy
as the proverbial bees for the last
week or so, and many changes
have been made in the standings of
the team. Golf ball manufacturers
are said to have rewarded the or
iginator of the challenge-lose-pay
golf ball fine system, as many of
the yearlings have challenged and
lost. One member of the squad is
said to have won ten balls in one
The revised standings are as fol
lows: Johnny Boyd played off the
qualifying tie with John Hanley,
and won, turning in a nice 76 while
the best Hanley could garner was
83. Ed Labbe, the challengingest
of the bunch, has played five
matches, three of them in defense
of his third place position and has
won them all. In fourth place is
Ed Wheelock, with Louis Fox close
behind. Fox, who occupied elev
enth place until yesterday after
noon, trounced Jack Campbell by
a score of 8 and 6. A1 Lours is the
sixth man.
The team will consist of four
men, with two alternates. A game
has been scheduled with Eugene
high school for the afternoon of
May 15. Challenging must be
over by Saturday evening so that
the final standings can be com
puted and arrangements made for
the match Monday.

event of this type which many
canoe fete enthusiasts will recall
happened a few years ago. A beau
tiful float, depicting a Chinese tea
garden floated smoothly down the
mill-race. Perched on the highest
pinnacle, sat a beautiful Oriental
Venus, fan in one hand, a dainty
parasol in the other. Suddenly the
float began to tip; when it was ap
parent that the float would keel
over sideways, the Oriental goddess
charmingly closed her fan, put
aside her parasol, and just at the
right moment dived gracefully into
the mill-race, and swam to shore.
Another year, a silver, glisten
ing .futuristic float, bearing a dev
astating beauty, floated slowly
down the race. Just as it came
around a bend in the stream, it got
too near the embankment and
stuck. The swimmers, supplying
the motive power, were helpless to
budge it; all attempts to move
that silver streak were futile; it
would not move an inch. But the
show must go on; the float re
mained there, while all the other
brilliant equippage passed by. The
temperature was within a few de
grees of freezing the beauty wore
a sheer, deeollette gown. Finally
a gallant swain paddled beside the
float and tossed the freezing beau
ty a skimpy "two by four" shawl.
She stayed during the entire fete,
but went to bed that night
wrapped in electric pads, hot water
bottles, and heated bricks.
Two years ago a spectacular
event occurred. One of the floats
passed the judging stand, paused
a minute, floated a few feet, and
then suddenly burst into flames.
All occupants were rescued, but
float burned to the ground par
don, to the cold water of the mill
This year's fete is being run
along scientific lines, announced
David Eyre, chairman. A system
of phones, and hook connections
is being installed to aVoid late
schedules, and "hind side afore"
hitting of the floats. Everything
is arranged for, stated Eyre, ex
cept the weather and that is be
yond the control of science.
Reinhart Drills
Hoop Candidates
In Spring Work
Every Tuesday and Thursday
nights the Igloo resounds, as in
winter term, with the soft soled
feet of basketball players. Twice
a week on the above mentioned
days Bill Reinhart trots his Web
foot hoopsters out on the court for
a session of spring practice,
something new in Oregon sport
Turnouts for the Commodore’s
brief workouts have been pretty
slim, however. With many of his
potential varsity hoopers working
out on the diamond, and an equal
number spending their afternoons
under Bill Hayward’s tutelage on
the track, Reinhart has had none
too many varsity candidates on
The squad averages about a
dozen per night, and scrimmages
are the rule.
The Commodore is thus forcing
himself to serve double time, for
in the daytime he has his hands
full with his Duck baseball nine
which swings into the middle of a
heavy schedule this week-end.
The hoop workouts will be
brought to a close before Viany
weeks, and Oregon’s prospective

his band will supply the music for
the evening, and features are be

A fitting climax for the week
end will be the parade of the spec

organizations, in competition for
the trophies to be awarded. Twelve
floats, the entries of 21 living or
ganizations will be presented.
Dave Eyre is general chairman of

The Story of ....
Bill Hayward
'TRACK meets in the 1890’s con
sisted of 20 or more events
and one of them was rowing. Bill
Hayward was a champion in this
too. Over a three-mile course, the
usual distance for single sculls
then, he was unbeatable. The
boats were not easy to row; they
were around 30 feet long and only
six or seven inches wide.
At this time the chief sporting
event in the east was the Caledon
ian sports, sponsored by the St.
Andrews society, a Scotch-Ameri
can organization. Groups of atfn
letes would travel from city to
city, putting on a show wherever
there was a branch of the society.
They usually started in Rochester,
New York, and would wind up in
Halifax, Canada. Twenty - two
events was the day's program and
the races started at 9 o'clock in
the morning and lasted until sun
down. Hayward's specialties were
running events from 75 to 600
yards and the boat racing, which
was held wherever a suitable
course could be found. Prizes to
the victors were as high as $150
and $200, and Hayward winnings
on some days totaled as high as
$4000. By taking money these
athletes naturally became profes
sionals, but Canadian officials
would quickly reinstated them so
they could play lacrosse between
track meets. Lacross, known chief
Jy to tne Canadians, was anorner
of Hayward's favorite sports.
When the Ottawa Capitals played
for the championship of the world,
Bill was one of their star players
When was that ? Oh, when Bill
wan 25 or 26 years old.
When summer was over the
group of track athletes would
break up and form ice hockey
teams for the winter. As a side
line Hayward took part in boxing
aud wrestling cxhibtions. It was
this interest in boxing and his re
nown as an athlete that led him
to become associated with Gentle
man Jim Corbett. Prior to the
battle with John L. Sullivan for
the world’s heavyweight title Cor
bett toured the country, giving ex
hibitions, getting in shape for the
coming batt.le and earning expens
es on the side. He took with him
a small group of trainers and ath
letes who assisted in the frequent
vaudeville house appearances. Hay
ward's feature was an Indian club
swinging act. A few years ago.
when Corbett was in Portland said
of Hayward "he could make those
clubs whistle."
It was while touring in the trav
eling Caledonian sports that Hay
ward become acquainted with two
men destined to play a chief part
in his later life. Lawson Robert
son and’Walter Christie were two
of the group who traveled with the
Scotch athletes. Robertson is now
known as track coach at the Uni
versity of Pennsylvania and an
Olympic games mentor, while
Christie was head track coach at
the University of California until
last year when he resigned. Af
ter several years of the sort of
life described before, Christie se
cured a job as coach at a large
eastern school. He invited Hay
ward to assist him. When he was
signed fty California he sent Hay
ward west to prepare the team
until he could arrive. That was
Bill’s introduction to the Pacific

13 to 13 Victory Over
Jones' Eleven
cial) — Howard Jones’ winning
streak came to an end here re
cently when the Trojan first
string, tutored by the great mas
ter himself, came to a humiliating
13 to 12 defeat before a squad of
reserves coached by Messrs. Tay
Brown and Stanley Williamson, in
a rough and tumble climax to the
1933 spring training for the cham
pionship Southern California grid
The Whites, made up of first
string reserves, and led by the
Trojan alums, tore into their more
favored teammates, the Reds,
scoring two touchdowns and near
ly a third when Fullback Probst
fumbled in the end zone.
The big star of the day was
young Garfield Matthews from
Pasadena. This bundle of dyna
mite, playing quarterback for the
Whites, showed more fire and
speed than any man on the field,
and made a strong bid to be con
sidered among Jones’ first string
roster for the 1933 season. He
showed spotless field generalship,
and was the best ground gainer of
the tilt. Gar was a reserve quar
ter last year.
Homer Griffith lived up to his
all-American reputation. Playing
in a Red uniform, lie threw passes
for his team’s two touchdowns, ran
with his usual speed in returning
kicks, and made first down after
tirst down with his powerful line
Romeo Lauzon, former Washing
ton center, was on deck scouting
the tilt for the Huskies, while the
Bruin coaching staff also attended
en masse.
