    Who’s Who
in the
By Tom McCall
1035 will ring down the curtain
on the long and successful track
career of FRED NOWXAND, the
La Grande Flyer. For the past 12
or 13 years the leggy blond has
donned his track paraphernalia
with the first signs of spring. He's
met the best that the Northwest
lias to offer in both the high jump
and the high hurdles. He’s met
the best that the high schools of
the nation had to offer in the hur
dies. He’s met success with nearly
all of them and failure with a few,
but there is one defeat that still
rankles deep in his heart. It hap
pened when the big boy was just
a little boy in his fourth grade of
elementary school . . . The La
Grande schools were having a
meet. The day was nearly over
and little Freddy looked like a sure
winner in the “mixed” broad jump.
He couldn’t quite get over the bar
v. here it had been placed but nei
ther could any of the other con
testants who had also been unable
to negotiate the bar at an imme
diately lower position which Fred
dy had cleared. And he turned to
leave the field amidst a triumph
ant parade of admirers, a tiny girl
wended her way from the melting
crowds and hurled herself with
hopeless abandon at the bar in a
devil-may-care last attempt at vic
tory. Higher and higher she soared
and then plunged like a catapault
to the sawdust below. The cross
bar wiggled slightly with her pass
ing touch, but it remained tenac
iously in place.
As a freshman in high school I
Nowland showed such poor prom
ise in the hurdles that his coach
paid but little attention to his an
tics. Resenting this attitude, vthe
lad set up two home made hurdles
in the street by his house. Here it
was that he practiced every day
for a month.
When came the first conference
meet of that season the coach fin
ally granted his plea to run the
highs. Stepping over the barriers
with the ease of a veteran he
whipped the field by five yards.
From then on he went undefeated
during the rest of his prep school
career, with the exception of his
Hayward and Track Crew Off for Washington State Meet
Vandals Take Ten Inning Game from Ducks
On Short End
Of 6-5 Score
Gemmell Has Bad Luck
In Second, Relieved
By Herb Foulk
W. Geragihty’s Hit in 10th
Scores Idaho Win
Out of a boiling pot of errors,
bases on balls, thrills, disappoint
ments, an extra inning, an ever
lasting cross-fire between Coaches
Rich Fox and Bill Reinhart and
Umpire Stan Summers, boos,
cheers, revenge, and strikeouts, the
Idaho Vandals won a 6-5 game
from the Ducks yesterday, and
Pitcher Herb Foulk was still in
the loss column only.
To little Wally Geraghty, a
spud at short, goes the day's
laurels if the enraged Webfoots
have any to bestow. It was his
triple to rightfield in the first of
the tenth inning that ponded re
lief hurler Glenn Naslund across
the plate for the winning run.
Oregon Bad Luck
With the blow and a wee bit of
luck in the Oregon half when sec
ond-baseman Summers pulled in
Foulk's short fly and doubled
Harry McCall off second base for
the final out, portsider Naslund
gained revenge for his loss Wed
Bill Black, who started on the
slab for Idaho, had the contest al
most tucked in his pocket in the
tirst two state meets. In 1930
he tied the state meet record, and
in 1931 established a new state
meet time of 15.9. Although this
mark was lowered last year, his
15.5, made in an eastern Oregon
; meet, is the best time that any
high school hurdler has made in
the state. That summer, 1931,
Nowland went back to the National
Interscholastic meet at Chicago,
where he met defeat in the finals
after r unning the meet’s fastest
highs in the preliminaries.
Last Saturday “The Flyer”
made his eighth and last appear
ance as a competitor at Bell field
in Corvallis. It is peculiar to note
that he ran against Wilbur Kid
der, his arch rival since grade
school days. As in many previous
meets the race was close, but also,
as in many previous meets, Kidder
bit the “cinders.” Today Nowland,
a co-holder of the Northwest high
jump championship, embarks on
another conquest when he accom
panies other members of the Web
foot track squad to Pullman where
they meet Washington State in a
dual meet.

last of the ninth. With two away
and none on Coach Fox stuck Nas
hind in the box. First he hit Gor
don, then he let Johnny Lewis
reach first on his wild throw to
Les Albee, then he threw a wild
pitch and Gordon, who had gone to
third on the error, scored the ty
ing tally.
Geinmell Blows Up
Hon Gemmell began the Duck
hurling, but was removed after al
lowing five runs in the second inn
ing. Two free passes and four
singles spelled his finish. In the
third Foulk took over the duties,
fanning 12 batters, and allowing
six hits and only one run in eight
cantos. In the meantime -Oregon
had tied the count, so this one run
in the tenth caused his third
straight loss.
Although Reinhart's squad had
an off day afield, the Foxmen held
the lead in this department with
seven miscues. Gordon overshad
owed his two mistakes with some
handy plays later in the day, con
tributing to a fast double play in
the seventh inning that nipped a
possible rally.

“Market Street — 1932 San
Francisco” is a well done pen and
ink sketch showing the famous
street swarming with people, cars,
trolleys in the midst of the build
ings and at the end of the street,
in the background, the Ferry build
ing. A lovely scene is depicted in a
picture which was drawn from the
top of Telegraph hill overlooking
San Francisco Bay. One sees a por

harbor, while above it all the sun's

hurdler and 440-yard star, is here
shown breaking the well-known
rays slant down through the
Sheep Form Subject
Sheep browsing in among the
trees form the subject of “Sheep in
the Wood.” The scene is a realistic
one that might be glimpsed in the
country any day, but it is made
beautiful through its exquisite
shading and use of the greens and
browns of the trees and the earth.
Emphasis is placed in the sunlight
slanting through the trees and
striking patches in the wood.
Many other pictures are included
in this exhibit, which is indeed well
worth seeing, not only because it
was done by a former Oregon stu
dent and now famous artist, but
because the mastery of it speaks
for itself.

Softball Play
Four hard-hitting, fast fielding
donut softball teams will tangle
Monday afternoon to decide which
two of the quartet will meet Tues
day in the finals of the 1935 in

ganizations that have won their
way into the semi-finals are Pi

Delta Tau Delta, and Alpha hall.
Today at 4 p. m. two more
make-up games are scheduled, and
they will be the last of the season
outside of the championship elim

that was postponed Wednesday in
favor of the Oregon-Idaho game,
and Kappa Sigma will entertain
the Yeomen in a make-up of a
game that never was played be

Thursday's softball results saw
all the favorites come through
their matches without a hitch. In
a hard fought contest the Phi

the Barnyarders, and “Truck"

his usual good game for the 13th
Streeters, but the heavy hitting of
the Phi Delt crew was too much
for him.
Alpha hall forfeited to Gamma

Cougars Favored
Because of Strength
In Distance Events
By Ned Simpson
With three full days of sunshine aiding his charges, Col. Bill
Hayward, Webfoot track mentor, will bundle his eighteen skittery
runners, hefty heavers, and jittery jumpers aboard train tonight for
Pullman, Washington, where they will compete against the Washing
ton State track team Saturday.
Men making the trip are: sprints—Walt Hopson, Bud Shoemake;
quarter-mile—Short Freeman, Howard Patterson; half-mile—George
Seharpf, Bob Luddington; mile—Sam McGaughty, A1 Johnson; two
mile Capt. Bob Wagner, Sam McGaughty; hurdles—Fred Nowland,
Milo Lacey; broad jump—Arne Lindgren; high jump—Johnny Stolp;
javelin Bob Parke, Warren Demaris; shot and discus—Gardy Frye;
and pole vault Marvin Janek, Ken Wood.
Colonel Bill has been doing a lot of figuring the last few days and
try as hard as he can, the answer always seems to favor the Cougars
The 1934 northern division champs boast the bc;t runners in the
northwest, and have plenty of strength in ilie iield events as well.
Karl Schaldeman, WSC coach, has-*
his eye on the crown again this
year, and unless the Webfoot mid
dle distance men and hurdles pull
a big surprise, they have a good
chance of starting off on the right
In the sprints the Oregon duo
of Shoemake, northwest century
champ and holder of the N. W.
conference record of 9.6 seconds,
and Walt Hopson, his dusky run
ning mate, should hold up their
end of the fight with little trouble.
Both Shoemake and Hopson, whose
bail leg of last season has healed,
are in tip-top shape.
In tlie quarter mile test Percy
Freeman and Howie Patterson will
find plenty of stiff competition in
Dick Nichols. In the meet last year
Patterson nosed out the lanky
Cougar ace by a few feet, but is
not given more than even chances
to repeat again this year. George
Scharpf and Bob Luddington, Web
foot half-milers, will have a good
chance to show what they have
when they tangle with Ken Leend
ersten, conference champ. Scharpf
has been running the 880 in better
than good time this season and is
given a good chance of boating
out the northerner.
Duck hopes in the mile will be
resting on the slim shoulders of
A1 Johnson, sophomore loper, who
has been showing consistent im
provement this season. His will be
the task of trying to cope with the
speedy Roy Carriker, another
northwest champ from the Palouse
In the hurdles, Oregon's Fred
Nowland and Milo Lacey are given
the edge over the Cougar timber
toppers. Both men have shown
plenty of speed and form. Bobby
Parke,- national javelin champ, and
Warren Dcmaris, former northwest
javelin crown-wearer, will give
Washington Staters a lesson in
how to toss the spindly spear. Both
men are expected to have little
trouble in copping the five and the
three in this event.
Gardner Frye, great tackle on
the 1933-34 football teams and two
year letter winner in track, will
carry the burden of Oregon weight
event representative. "Popeye" will
toss both the shot and the discus,
and is the only Webfoot entry in
