Page 4 The Tip-Off By BILL PHIPPS Track and Field Interest Booms in, East With Neiv Records in Indoor Meets REPORTS from the east coast indicate that in that section of the United States, at least, Cunningham track is decidedly on the upgrade. Sports commen tators and fans alike are enthu siastic over the indooi* season which recently drew to a close. Tabulations show that more rec ord-breaking per formances were turned i n this year than at any time since 1925, when Paavo Nurmi toured the United States. The milers stole a good share of the spotlight with two thrilling duels between America’s three 4:10 runners for that distance— Bill Bonthron, Glenn Cunningham and Gene Venzke. The featured Baxter mile of the N. Y. A. C. meet was the first meeting of the three distance aces. While the time was somewhat slow, the event was a battle of wits marked by the trio’s stride for-stride finish which was with out precedent in the annals of mile racing indoors. Bonthron eked out first place by inches over Cunningham ,the .Kansas star, with Venzke only a pace in the rear at the end of a 2-minute last half after the first half of the dis tance was covered in 2:14. In the N. A. A. U. champion ships staged a week later a thrill ing neck-and-neck finish was again in order in the 1500 meters, only this time Cunningham beat out the Princeton flash by inches with Venzke again only a stride behind. The time for this race cut 1.2 seconds from Venzke’s two-year-old record of 3:53.4 and even the youthful Pennsylvania sophomore who crossed the line in last place clipped his old record by a second. Cunningham brought further glory to himself in the Columbian mile in the K. of C. meet when he left Venzke some 20 yards behind as he blasted the indoor mile rec ord in 4:08.4. Cunningham also cracked the 1000-yard Canadian record, pacing that distance in 2:12.2, a fifth under the world in door mark. Kay Sears, of Butler, and John ny Fellows supplanted Joe Me Clusky, former Fordham distance man, as the best two-mi'lers in tHe country. Fellows trimmed Sears by 20 yards in the Millrose meet, running the course in 9:09.3, but later Sears took the honors by running the fastest two miles even recorded by an American, indoors or outdoors, to cut the record to 9:07.4. Walter Marty, Fresno State, broke all records for either inside or outside leaps when lie cleared the bar at G feet 8 3-4 inches while appearing on the boards for the first time. Witli the pole man soared higher than ever before indoors when Yale's vaultcr. Keith Brown, forced the mark to 14 feet 1 inches from 14 feet 1 3-4 inches and finished with a total of 10 vaults of 14 feet or better in 14 months. DeHart Hubbard’s old broad jump mark which stood for 10 years was shattered by Jesse Owens, freshman from Ohio State, who boosted the mark from 24 feet 7 inches to 25 feet 3 1-4 inches. John Collier, Boston A. A., ran GO yards over four hurdles in 7.4 to equal the existing record and then flew over five hurdles in the same distance to shove the record from 7.8 to 7.5. * * * Notwithstanding the glory gar nered by the record-breakers, Venzke s sensational comeback after a long string of defeats by Cunningham brought him much favor and again put him in the running us one of the nation’s premier milers. His pushing to the last yard forced his rivals from Kansas anti Princeton to set a new mark and at the same time he] rose from the ranks of the "has j beens" where he had been rele gated by many of the critics.

We Guarantee Our Work CAMPUS SHOE SHINE Coast Cinder Teams Work Intensively Southern Squads Make Most Progress Various Stars Hang Up Records; Several .Meets Booked For Next Week With the opening clashes giving only a few hints of track duels yet to come the Pacific coast con ference cinder teams are training intensively for the 1934 season. Northern division teams have not progressed as far in the 1934 schedules as have the southern cin der tracksters where all teams ex cept Southern California have par ticipated in at least one meet. Cal ifornia is leading the pack at pres ent, having won meets with U. C. L. A. and with Washington. In the other meet of the California group the Bruins lost to Stanford. Few Meets in North Northern division activities have been confined to the Husky meet with California mentioned, the university event in the Hill Mili tary academy indoor relays at Portland between Oregon and Oregon State, won by Oregon, and a practice meet between Idaho and Washington State. California opened its track sea son March 24 against U. C. L. A. and won to the tune of 89 2-3 to 41 1-3. The Bears took 11 firsts and made a clean sweep of the 100. The Westwood track team found considerable consolation in losing because of the performance of Smiling Jimmy LuValle, Bruin 440 ace, who won that race and ran second to Bullet Bob Keisel of California in the 220. In beat ing Washington in an indoor meet at Seattle by a score of 76 1-2 to 54 1-2 Keisel, Bob Clarke, broad jumper, Hugh Thompson, higTi jumper, Bob Fowler, two-miler, and Kenny Vantress, pole vaulter, starred for the Golden Bears. Nearly Breaks Record LuValle came near shattering Ben Eastman’s record of 46.4 sec onds for the quarter-mile, missing it by one second, in the Stanford U. C. L. A. meet last w%ek. The Indians won by a score of 87 1-3 to 43 2-3. Johnny Lyman, Card shot putter, broke two world’s records in the shotput by heaving the 24-pound pellet 40 feet, 7 3-4 inches and the 8 pound shot 70 feet 7 3-4 inches. In the W.S.C.-Idaho practice meet, run on the Cougar track, which was reported in slow condi tion, not a great deal was shown in any department. A feature of the meet was the sight of a 200 pound Idaho fullback running the 100-yard dash in 10.3 seconds. The hefty runner was Theron “Swede" Ward. Future Interesting Future plans of conference schools are now in the limelight. Saturday the California Bears meet the Southern California Tro jans at Los Angeles. Washington State and Montana are planning to send track representatives to the Drake and Kansas relays. The Cougar team will probably consist of 8 men. The Kansas relays will be held in Lawrence, Kansas, on April 21 and the Drake relays in Des Moines on April 27-28. Oregon vs. Oregon State in the annual relays at Corvallis is the next northern division meet sched uled. It is to be held ApfU 28, The next week Washington will meet its first northwest competi tion in Oregon State at Seattle. i. \1 Ini Ini fnl fnl fnl ITT) Iril Fnl fnl fnl f rt 117111771 f771 fnl 1751 fill 177) fnl fnl 17711771H7117 Yearling Golfers Clash With Prep Teams Saturday Duckling fairway hounds will obtain their first taste of compe tition Saturday, when they take on Salem and Eugene high schools in a three-way match over the Laurelwood course.

DISCUSSIONS AT ROUND TABLE HELD AT MEET (Continued from Pane One) tions, and practical considerations of the positions. According to the speakers, the field in each type of work has enlarged during recent years until it includes a wide va riety of jobs. Miss Frankie Coykendall em phasized the fact that the adver tising and newspaper business of fers many positions other than writing and selling. She described the positions open to women and the knowledge necessary for them in the different departments of the advertising agency, the retail advertisers, the radio, and the newspaper. Considering particularly the ad vertising ag . ^y, she emphasized the fact th^l copy writing is the most difficult position to secure, and that women new to the busi ness should begin with some other job, working into something dif ferent. Some of the advertising positions open, according to Miss Coykendall, are connected with art, accounting and stenographic work, home economics, writing, dramatics, and scientific knowl edge. However, no matter in what division a person is inter ested, stated Miss Coykendall, ac tual selling experience is a great asset. Miss Brownell Frazier, speaking on women in art, discussed the im portance of art and design in every day living as well as in entering a profession. She explained the value of art education in private life and in relation with the reg ular college course. Considering art from the pro fessional standpoint, Miss Frazier took up the opportunities in in dustrial and commercial organiza tions. Miss Frazier stated that in almost all lines of work there are positions which necessitate train ing in art. Speaking on women in educa tion, Mrs. Alice Howard stated that “Training is considered more important than years of service, although it takes both for the best results. . . . Salaries will increase as professional training increases.'’ Mrs. Howard gave the profes sional training arid educational re quirements, as well as the neces sary personal characteristics, for each of the four main types of positions in the educational field: classroom teachers, administra tors, special teachers, and research workers. Men and women teachers, ac cording to Mrs. Howard, are paid on different wage scales, men usually receiving a steadily higher rate. Women, however, have equal opportunities for advancement, if they have had the educational re quirements for higher jobs, and have had experience in classroom teaching. “Patronize Emerald advertisers.' raradranr.iPQnacinnrirn—«i~ I I vr-t k-j v -y wrj L'J en LiJ UiJ UiJ SMART BACKS are BACK AGAIN IN OUR SMART NEW BI SWING SUITS FOR SPRING Fabrics and Fashions that Appeal to University Men at These Very Appealing Prices $25 — $30 — $35 NEW WHITE BUCKSKIN SHOES Extra Value $6.00 ERIC MERRELL Clothes for Men “Till] AKKOW SHIRT STORE’’ Puzzle—Find the Racing Winner ___i vs/xcitwttot:<-yjtoMMmmHWJWAUM)mwwwsss/sss/s.«mvmsmrs>m9wvt 1 This, kind lads and lassies, is a picture of the winning car in the recent 250-mile Gilmore gold cup race in Los Angeles, “shot” as the speeding car negotiated a difficult turn on the dirt track.

Van Hoevenberg bobsled run on a sled from which the most important bolt holding the front runner under control was missing? Both the men knew this fact but without bothering to look at the gear they coolly de cided to risk it and skooted off down the treacherous run at well over a mile a. minute depending upon iron nerves and muscles and skill to see them through; Some nerve: Pan Xenia Announces Pledging of Five Men At a meeting held yesterday af ternoon five pledges were accepted into the ranks of the Pan Xenia, foreign trade honorary.
