Meet Records May
Fall As Prep Stars
Gather for Sta te Tilt
Boh Leslie of Klamath Falls Threatens
Century Mark; Spotted Eagle,
Anderson May Win
A world's record may be endangered when 217 high school track
men gather on Hayward field Friday afternoon at 1 to open the eighth
annual Oregon high school track and field meet.
When Bob Leslie, Klamath Falls sprinter, goes to the marks in
the century, spectators may see a new state record of 0:9.6 hung up in
the 100 yard dash.
Such a performance by a prepper was unheard of until Leslie broke
the tape at the Klamath Falls meet last Saturday. Leslie is co-holder
of the state record at present in the fast time of 0:9.6. He shares the
217 Prep Trackmen Open Eighth Annual State Meet
distinction with Bobby Grayson, 1
having equalled the Stanford foot
ball star's record in last year’s
Spotted Eagle, Chemawa Indian
> school star, may provide another
of the meet thrills. The fleet footed
Indian turned a mark of 2:01.4 in
the half mile event of the Salem
meet last Saturday. This is one
tenth of a second faster than Sam
McGaughey’s state meet mark set
in 1933. Several of the preppers
have a fine chance to win the 880
if their qualifying times can be
used as an indication.
Weight will mean little if Stan
ley Anderson of Roosevelt high
continues to disregard gravity in
the shot put and discus tosses. In
qualifying Saturday Anderson flip
ped the metal ball 51 feet 3 inches.
Peters of Lincoln high threw 50
feet 1% inches last year to estab
lish a state record.
Anderson also tossed the discus
over the horizon to a distance of
132, 2 feet 8% inches beyond
Brack’s meet record.
Parade Opens Meet
A colorful touch will be added
to the opening ceremonies when
the 217 entrants parade around
Hayward field in true Olympic
style prior to the start of the first
preliminary qualifying race Friday.
Plans for the gala opening were
announced last night by Colonel
Bill Hayward, director of the meet,
and Don Thomas, Portland, student
chairman. Detail of Olympic games
opening, witnessed many times by
Hayward, will be followed closely.
Queen Mary to Rule
The entire group of prep ath
letes, divided into state district and
high school sections, will march
onto Hayward field promptly at
1 o’clock, led by an honor color
guard from the university ROTC.
The marchers, with each district
and school designated by a ban
ner. and with meet officials in
cluded, will parade by the east
grandstand before Queen Mary
Morse and her court, the rulers of
1 the recent Junior weekend celebra
The color guard will fall out and
take places in front of the queen's
stand and as each unit of the par

Frosh Coach
Bat Practice
Duck Babes Continuing
Heavy Slugging
Millard Probable Starter
For Rook Tilt; Goodwin
Will Caleb
Undismayed by the prediction of
George Scott, the Oregon State
Rooks baseball coach that “if our
pitchers hold out we'll win three
of the four games with the Ore
gon Frosh,” Coach Ed Kelley sent
h i s suddenly vicious sluggers
through a well-balanced workout
of hitting and fielding last night.
With last year’s three victories
in mind, which the Frosh won by
such overwhelming scores that the
fourth encounter was never played,
Coach Kelley laid heavy stress on
batting practice, bunting, and base
Babes Slug Well
Reveling in their newly-found
power at the plate, the Ducklings
continued to joyfully plaster the
ball to the far extremes of the low
er field. The team which found the
offerings of Earl Bucknum and
Herb Foulk for three home runs on
the varsity field Thursday again
came through with heavy work
from the batter s positions.
Bud Goodin, Coach Kelley’s foot
ball find who has shown so well in
the backstop position, was appar
ently a sure-starter for Friday’s
opening contest. With the catch
ing duties disposed of, Coach Kel
ley turned his attention to the
none-too-strong hurling staff.
Millard May Hurl
Bob Millard, who has been kept
on the trot between the mound and
the pastures, has looked well in
practice and will probably start
Friday's game. The well-built
portsider has pitched little in the
warm-up games and has shown
streaks of wildness in practice
It will probably be southpaw
against southpaw Friday, as Coach
Scott will probably start Dean
Johnston, his star moundsman.
Wynne Hook Star
With Long John Wynne on first
at the top of his form at the. plate.
Herman Gaglia and Fred Lewis
fielding around the keystone sack
and Joe Gray keeping cool on the
hot corner, Coach Scott has a fine
infield combination. Wynne and
Gray are a part of the Rooks’
heavy artillery.
Lester Weaver, Ike Wintermute,
and Lloyd Patterson make up
Coach Scott's pasture patrol. Rog
er Morey will round out the team
behind the plate.

From Scribe's Pen
While the Webfoot ball players
take to the road in an attempt to
wrest first place in the northwest
conference from t h e Beavers,
Coach Bill Hayward's thinclads
will cavort about the field in prep
aration for Oregon's annual track
and field civil war with the gang
from Corvallis.
After a disappointing showing at
Pullman, the Ducks have once
again settled back into form—but
rather than print a post-mortem,
we would like to say a word of
Y\ itli the NCCAA meet before
their eyes as the final objective of
the season aiul for many of the
veterans the final meet of their
career, the tendency to overlook
Oregon State may appear,—possi
bly this played some factor in the
Cougar defeat.
N* *5*
Coach Hayward has some fine
material coming up next year to
console him for the loss of some
of his brightest stars from this
year's squad. George Varoff, a
freshman pole vaulter may be seen
any afternoon ascending and des
cending from the near-stratosphere
with the aid of a slim bamboo pole.
Varoff has no respect for the high
er altitudes and is one of the finest
vaulting prospects seen in the
northwest for many moons.
While Varoff soars gracefully
about the clouds, “Squeak” Lloyd,
a transfer, confines his excursion
to mere hops 34 feet along the
ground. With these two men and
several of this year’s luminaries on
Hayward’s list we can almost start
the “big next year” predictions
which so often fall short—or flat.

When the Ducks meet the Rooks
Friday and Saturday anything may
be expected. Last year the Frosh
won lopsided victories over their
hottest rivals—this year Coach
George Scott comes to the front
with the assertion that his Rooks
will win three of four if his pitch
ing staff comes through.
C’oaeh Ed Kelley on the Frosh
end of the question answered mere
ly (hat the Rooks might do just
that — but failed to look convinc
The whole question seems to re
volve around the pitching staffs of
the respective squads. There are
more “ifs” in both mound squads
than there are bats in their bat
bags. Since the Frosh have sud
denly come to life at the plate and
have begun to plaster the apples
to the far extremities of the field,
a slugfest may result when the
teams clash - for the Rooks are al
so strong in this department.

Six Gaines in Week
Face Second-Place
Ducks on Road Trip
Trailing the pennant-bound Ore
gon State Beavers by one full
game, Bill Reinhart's Webfoots
take the northbound baseball trail
today to play the northern divi
sion’s toughest schedule in an at
tempt to annex the second con
secutive championship for Oregon.
Opening in Seattle F r i d a y
against Tubby Craves, slipping
Huskies, the Ducks face a two
game series with each of the three
northern teams in seven days.
Playing Washington this weekend,
the Oregon squad spends Sunday,
its only day of rest, traveling to
Pullman where Washington State
will entertain Monday and Tues
Without rest the Ducks then
shift to Moscow to finish the gruel
ling road trip opposing Rich Fox's
heckling Vandals on Wednesday
and Thursday.
Hurling Chief Worry
Oregon’s success during the
seven-day seige on enemy baseball
camps depends largely upon the ef
fectiveness of Coach Reinhart's
hurling stuff. All season Coach
Reinhart’s pet worry has been the
chucking corps, which until Cece
Inman twirled a sparkling three
hit game to handcuff the Wash
ington batsmen in the final game
here last week, had been unable
Upturn in victories in any series
after Don McFadden, mainstay
righthander, had sewed up the
That Coach Reinhart is still wor
ried about the pitching department
is evidenced by the attention he has
given his moundsmen in practice
this week. Johnny Lewis, regular
third baseman, has been delegated
to hurling duty this week, while
Ralph Amato has been -brought in
from left field to take care of the
hot corner.
Lewis, a twirler in his younger
days, is slated to start in his usual
position but will be ready to step
into the box in a relief role in case
the regular pitchers run into too
much trouble.
Receiving Staff Crippled
Though concentration upon the
hurling problem has occupied
Coach Reinhart’s attention this
week, the receiving staff is in none
too good condition to face the
crucial test in the north.
Indications at present point to
ward the heavy duty falling to
Mickey Vail, veteran catcher, as
Johnny Thomas, this year's sopho
more find, is still handicapped by a
broken thumb.
If Thomas’ fractured digit per
mits him to assume routine duties,
Coach Reinhart’s worries in this
department are over, otherwise the
danger of injury to Vail will be a
constant threat.
Finances Limit Squad
Financial conditions which pre
vent a large squad from making
the trip will place a further burden
on Coach Bill’s shoulders, as no
utility infielder will be available in
case of injury. With only 15 men
on the traveling squad the Web
foots will carry but four infielders:
Harry McCall on first, Ray Kock
teamed with Joe Gordon around
the keystone sack, and Lewis at
In addition to McFadden and In
man, Herb Foulk, Ron Gemmell
and Earl Bucknum will be avail
able for service on the hill.
The outer pastures will be pa
trolled by Maury Van Vliet, Andy
Hurney, Wes Clausen, and Amato,
who will be in the gardens unless
an emergency causes him to be
shifted to the infield.
The progressive merchant
no longer thinks merely of

the trade of the community.
He has come to realize that

the truth about the goods
which are offered for
