Bill's Homerun Signal
ADDED attraction! Joe Renner,
people's choice for student
body president, will make his first
public appearance since his suc
cess at the polls, when he performs
with Mayhem Mike against Calli
son’s 1934 edition of a gridiron
Little Joe, as they call him on
the greensward, will be perform
ing at right halfback on the team
that is made up of veterans. Do
not feel badly for Joe. He can
take it and dish it out. He played
on the Jefferson state champion
ship teams, and has been out for
two years working with the var
sity. With Joe will be Mayhem
Mike Mikulak, Bruiser Bree Cup
poletti, Dangerous Dutch Clark,
Treacherous Ted Geiseke, and a
few more of the men who have
performed for Oregon in the past
two or three years.
Mike Mikulak has promised that
he will be as devastating with his
cruncher play on the offense as
he was last fall, and on the de
fense he has promised to show a
few of the tricks he has picked
up while refereeing wrestling
matches. But Callison has a new
and faster edition of a fullback to
fill the shoes of Mikulak. Friday
Frank Michek will be in the full
back position and breaking
■through the line with a speed that
will startle the spectators and
might even catch the wary Miku
lak off guard.
The Order of the O is to be con
gratulated on its step to make a
lasting contribution to the Univer
sity and one that will show the
lovers of athletic sports in the
state that they do appreciate a
man who has given the best years
of his life to the bettering of our
The unanimous vote to have a
bust made of Colonel Bill Hay
ward is a show of appreciation
from the Order of O that will

Baseball this afternoon and the
Vandals of Idaho will be the piece
de resistance. (Your French is
terrific.) The nine from the po
tato state comes to Eugene with
a record of ten games won in pre
conference play and not too many
chalked up on the other side.
What I want to see is that
home-run signal that Reinhart has
developed. Ha! I’ll bet that it is
either Joe Gordon or Ray Koch
that clicks the first one over the
wire! If it is Koch it will be just
another home run, but if Joe gets
the long drive there will be a
double attraction as he rolls in
from third base with his knee ac
tion wheels performing.
One more little note. Frank
Mlchek, who will perform for the
regulars Friday, and who, if you
recall, can take quite a beating
on the gridiron, has his weakness.
He can put on as nasty a block
as you like, or he can tackle a
freight car head on, but when he
was out for track last quarter he
was rounding the curve at a slow
jog with nothing on his mind when
he fell flat on his fice with a pulled
muscle in his back. It looked like
the hand of fate. Since he has
been out for football for the pas',
three weeks lie has had nothing
more than a barked shin to com

Pacific (’oast Record Unofficially
Broken; Records Will Be
Kept for Future
Swimmers of the University of
Oregon campus will be given an
opportunity to set abrand new set
of records in the first annual all
university swimming champion
ships, ot be held May 7 to 17.
Mike Hoyman, swimming coach,
promises some close race!; and fast
marks for students to try for in
future years. Mr. Hoyman reports
that three members of the varsity
swimming squad have unofficially
broken the Pacific coast 100 yard
free style mark of 55.8 seconds.
These men, Jim Reed, Francis
Oglesby, and Wallace Hug, con
tinued training after the varsity
season closed and have bettered
the record time since then.
The championship series will es
tablish an all-round champion, the
title going to the winner of the
most points. There will also be in
dividual championships in each
Twenty-four events for varsity
and frosh swimmers have been
scheduled. These include:
Free style: 40 yard dash, 50 yard
dash, ' 100 yard dash, 220 yard
event, 440 yard event, 880 yard
event, 1500 meter event, 100 meter
Back stroke: 50 yard event, 100
yard event, 150 yard event, 500
yard event, 880 yard event, 1320
Breast stroke: 100 yard event,
200 yard event, 440 yard event,
880 yard event.

160 yard free style four man re
lay, 400 yard free style four man
relay, 880 yard free style four man
relay, 800 yard breast stroke four
300 yard individua lmedley.
In addition to these there will be
several events for freshmen only.
Points will be scored as follows:
Races: first, five points; second,
three; third, two; fourth, one.
Relays and medleys; frist, eight
points; second, six; third, four.
The medley relay team will be
selected from the first palce win
ners of the 100 yard breast stroke,
100 yard back stroke and 100 yard
free style races.
The 160 yard and 400 yard free
style relay teams will be made up
of the first four place winners in
the 100 free style, the 880 yard
free style relay etam from the
four place winners of the 220 yard
free style races, and the 800 yard
breast stroke relay team from the
200 yard breast stroke place win
Contestants can form other re
lay teams to compete with these if
they wish. Since points will be
given to second and third places in
the relays, there will probably be
competition for the teams selected.
Coach Hoyman explained that
the reason for this method of pick
ing relay teams was to assure the
establishment of fast marks for
the swimmers of future champion
ships to try for.
The schedule for May 7 will con
sist of 100 yard breast stroke, 100
yard back stroke, 50 yard free
style and 1500 meter free style
The races will be held in the
men’s gym pool and will start at

Research in Ammonia
Experimental research is being
carried on by Clarence Strong and
William Raburn to study some of
the many properties of ammonia.
In discussing the project under
research Dr. Shinn, professor of
chemistry, said that it was to find
the "equilibrium of ammonia in
polar solvents” that was aimed.
"This work will probably be
more theoretical than practical,"
added Shinn, but it is hoped that
something will be realized at least
for the effort.

Sammies Beat Sigma Chi
In Big League Play
Fiji* Stage Seventh Inning Hally
In Desperate Struggle
For League Lead
The Yeomen softball team
emerged as victors of the second
league last night when they de
feated a fighting Fiji nine. The
independents nearly lost their lead
over the triple-tied League IT
when the Fiji men went on an old
fashioned seventh inning rally.
In the second match of the win
ners' round robin the Sammy do
nuteers avenged Monday night’s
loss by a close victory over the
Sigma Chi club. The teams were
so evenly matched that the out
come of the tilt was in even bal
ance until the last batter 'had left
Yeomen, 9; Fiji, 7
The first real double play of the
whole softball playoff went to the
smooth-working Yeomen nine
when shortstop Chatterton caught
a bounding grounder, tossed it to
second baseman Cook, who quickly
pegged it to Shellenberger on
first. Good infield work and hard
slugging, especially by Spear and
A1 Schneider, had put the Yeomen
in a comfortable 9 to 2 lead by
the seventh inning.
Then a desperate Fiji team be
gan a hysterical orgy of slugging.
With the bases loaded, Pitcher
Mize of Phi Gamma Delta stepped
up to the plate, drove a hard two
base hit, which the rattled inde
pendents allowed to become a
homer. Pushed on by the elan
of battle, first baseman Bill White
smashed out a long homer. But
the Fiji run was over. Julian
Rothenberger and Tom Mountain
of the Yeomen battery tightened
down and the battered League II
trophy went to the independents.
Sammies, 4; Sigma Chi, 3
Bunny Butler s three - bagger,
which put him in position to score
Sigma Chi’s last run, was the
longest hit of the day in the close
Sigma Alpha Mu-Sigma Chi tangle.
Expert fielding and air-tight in
fields prevented longer hits. The
Sammies accounted for the second
double play in the softball tourna
ment when Meshier scooped in a
grounder, stepped on second base
and smacked the ball into the
hands of first baseman Phil Hodes.
In the fourth inning the score
stood 4 to 3 for the Sammies. Les

The work or art is to be pre

done considerable fine work since
his graduation from the University

to be remembered on the campus
for the fine bust of Dean Straub
that is in John Straub hall. He
has also done busts of Governor
Meier and other noted men
throughout the state.
In the elections of officers,

of the Hayward bust, Bob Parke
