    Webfoots Open ’37 Pennant Chase at Corvallis Today
uiiiiiiiiiiiniumiiiiiimiiniiiHiiiiiiiiiiiiHiiiNmiiiiiiiimii! iHiiimmiiiimniM
It’s opening day!
At the little towns of Corvallis
and Moscow this afternoon four
rival northern division baseball
teams will open chase for the 1937
conference pennant.
Over in Idaho, Washington
State's Cougars and the Idaho
Vandals will cross bats, and here
in good old Oregon our Webfoot
lads will face their ancient rivals,
the Orangemen of Oregon State.
Washington won’t see action until
Who will capture the gonfalon?
That’s why they have a 16-game
schedule every spring. On paper,
Washington State’s defending
champions get the nod and figure
tops in most wise betting. Prog
nosticators, however, are allowing
for a lot cf leeway in figuring
Howard Hobson's Ducks, and the
always-tough Washington Hus
Vandals, Beavers at Bottom?
The weakened Oregon State and
Idaho clubs must be placed down
at the bottom on early season per
formance and a dearth of mater
ial. Forrest Twogood's Vandals
have already dropped six in a row
to Whitman college of the little
northwest conference, and the Ore
gon Staters have dropped three to
Willamette. They finished that
way in baseball last spring, in the
recent basketball race, and are
now doped to end in that
order about a month from now.
Buck Bailey’s Cougars copped the
title last season with 12 victories
in 16 games, and Oregon and
Washington ended just above the
.500 mark with nine wins and seven
Upon Oregon’s hopes lie the
ability of Coach Hobson’s pitching
staff to weather a storm of suc
cessive games, which on One trip
to the Inland Empire will include
six contests in seven days against
Washington, Washington State and
Idaho. Therein may rest the des
tiny of any Webfoot championship
How do the five teams compare
in diamond studded material ?
Here’s the dope on all but Idaho
which reports a relatively inexperi
enced team.
Murderous Cougar Outfit
Buck Bailey's title-holding
Washington Staters, probably the
heaviest hitting team in the con
ference, will open today minus but
three lettermen. They have a
strong mound staff and infield, be
ing weakest in the outfield.
Heading the Cougar pitching
string are Mel Marlowe, veteran
southpaw, and Bob Kinnamon,
huge right-hander, who each won
five games and lost one last sea
Their infield includes a veritable
murderers row. At first base it
Clyde (Corky) Carlson, George
Nethercutt, a .365 hitter, at short
stop, and Max Schoening, all-con
ference utility man, who may play
third base or in the outer garden.
Outfielders Ed Goddard and Clay
ton Kranc pounded the horsehide
for listed averages of .342 and .383
respectively, last year.
Huskies Need Chuckers
Washington’s Coach Tubby
Graves is searching for pitching
talent, but reports he has the best
Husky infield of recent years in
tact again. In the outfield, Ed
Loverich. all-conference hoop star,
is the only man certain of his job.
Roy Marlowe, veteran catcher,
is on hand to handle Bailey's two
top-notch pitchers, Lou Budnick

The Kappa Sigs rose up as if in

Frosh Practice
For Coming Tilt
Two Games on, One Tied
So Far; Juiietion City
Plays Here Tuesday
Batting, fielding, and base-run
ning practice again occupied the
Duckling baseball players' prac
tice in preparation for a game with
Junction City next Tuesday.
Pitchers have worked out reg
ularly, limbering up their arms in
the unfinished portion of the new
gym when the weather was too
bad to go outside, but infielde'rs
and outfielders missed a lot of
practice that Honest John Warren
is trying to make up with inten
sive practices.
The frosh have played three
games to date with about twice as
many cancellations. Two of the
games played were won, and the
other tied. In the initial contest
of the season John Linde, Tom
Robertson, and Bill Garrett all
worked to beat University high of
Eugene 9 to 1. The second game
with Silverton here, Linde again
pitched, and handcuffed the Foxes
for 5 innings. He began to tire
after that and allowed six runs,
but his team-mates batted in 15
runs in the meantime.
The second game at Silverton
was a much closer contest, but no
decision was reached because the
game was called in the seventh
inning because of rain.
Wimpy Quinn, Lyle Goode, Jake
Fisher, and Paul Jackson have
been the heavy hitters so far.
who has as assistants PE majors
of the University.
George Scharpf, captain and star
miler on last year’s Oregon team,
has been coaching the freshman
team this spring.

Ball Game; Shot Put
Mark in Danger
After countless telephone com
munications Tuesday between
Anse Cornell, Oregon athletic di
rector, and Oregon State athletic
directors over the fate of the Ore
gon-Oregon State relay carnival
slated for tomorrow, a decision
was reached to hold the meet on
Hayward field at 1 o’clock instead
of the original 2 o'clock starting
The meet, originally scheduled
for Corvallis under the yearly al
ternating system, was transferred
to Eugene several weeks ago be
cause of repairs on the Bell field
oval. Since it conflicts with the
opening conference baseball game
also slated for Saturday afternoon,
efforts were made to re-transfer
it to the Beaver camp.
1 o’clock Start
The starting time has been ad
vanced one hour to 1 o'clock in
order to give students wishing to
take in the baseball game an op
portunity to witness the carnival,
a yearly track feature between the
two schools. The time of the ball
game has been set back to 2 o’
clock so the two will not run too
long concurrently.
The Webfoots, primed for their
third straight victory in the an
nual classic took things easy yes
terday with no work slated for
Records in Danger
The records most likely to be
broken, according to Coach Bill
Hayward, are the shot put and
high jump relays. Both events
were placed back on the program
last year after several seasons’ ab
sence and records in both events
were set up at the carnival at that;
E-xpected to lead the Webfcot
shot-putters on their record
assault is Bill Foskett, one year
veteran, who was a member of
last year's record breaking quar
tet. Chan Berry, another member
of the record-setting team, Dutch
Holland, discus expert, and Stan
Smith complete the quartet of tos
MeOaughey Leads
Captain Sam McGaughey, two
year veteran distance man will be
competing in his third and last
relay carnival and is expected to
pace the Duck mile and four mile
With both squads being ham
pered by continual rains during
pre-season training, and neither
having competed this year little
can be judged of the strength of
the respective squads.
According to Hayward, Oregon
will be lucky to win five events of
the 10 on the program.

The meet will be broadcast from
the field over' KORE, Eugene. This
is the first time that a track meet

Game to Orides, 13-10
The Kappa Kappa Gammas gar
nered a win in the opening game
of the softball series on Gerlinger
field yesterday by taking the Sig
ma Kappas, 21 to 10. Getting off
to a shining start, the Kappas
made six runs in the first inning
and kept up the good work the
rest of the game. The Sigma Kap
pas were there all the time though
with a home run by Sylvia Sar
lett in the second, and plenty of
good playing by pitcher Corinne
LaBarre and first baseman Erma
Helikson. Other bright flashes
were Dorothy Bates, left field,
Mary Thatcher, first baseman, and
Betty Lou Roberts, pitcher for the
The game between the Orides
and Alpha Chi Omega at 6:30 was
a real play, with the Orides com
ing out in front with a 13 to 10
win. The Orides are keeping up
their style-if you remember, they
came out on top last year. The
game only ran three innings when
it began to get too dark to play.
The Orides took advantage of
the Alpha Chi’s bad start by stack
ing up ten runs in the first two
innings. The Alpha Chis got their
big chance in the third when Betty
Cleator socked a homer scoring
three runs, but they failed to fol
low through. The Orides bagged
three more ending the game, 13
to 10.
It might not be a bad idea for
the championship girls and boys
teams to have a little collision at
the end of the season. What do you
think ?
