There is some sort of psychology
in baseball that team winning the
first game of series doesn’t have
to worry too much about the re
maining ones, for they will fall in
line. Hence coaches are wont to
place their opening game hopes
on the shoulders of their strong
est hurler in order to give the team
that added something—it’s like
jumping the gun, giving you a
couple of paces head start.
And so Hobby was In some sort
of a spot this week. Here was the
opening game away from home
and another one the next day in
the home orchard. He could have
pitched Bill Sayles over at Cor
vallis, but, elaborate ceremonies
were being planned for the kick
off here and Sayles was the hot
drawing card because he is re
garded one of the finest tossers
ever to enroll at Oregon—complete
with an outstanding record as a
member of the Olympic baseball
team last year. So if the howling
mob didn’t get Sayles for their
initial dish there would have been
a lot of beefing and ranting, thus
Hobby was more or less forced to
save the big chucker for the open
er here and put a less experienced
man before a hostile crowd at
Corvallis, which is as tough a spot
as ever made.
Well, Hobby did that which was
expected of him. And thanks to
the brilliant four-hit hurling of
Johnny Lewis, the converted third
baser, Hobby guessed right. And
so we've got the first one under
the belt in a comfortable position,
big smoke-bailer Sayles ready to
go this afternoon, and the satisfied j
feeling that we have another top
rate hurler in Noggy Lewis.
There is some saying that says
that the guy that guesses right
can’t be wrong. But let him guess;
Lest you are the gullible sort
who believe that out there today

eyes, exhort excitedly, and exude

that fancy pair of earmuffs that
so-and-so is giving” and the fellow
that takes those lusty cuts “Gee,
If I smack this one, I can take
Liz to the show on the dozen
passes I win.”
You get it. Those prizes are fun
for the boys and they get a great
kick out of winning them. Even
coaches aren’t averse to eating a
big dinner free gratis, or getting
a new neck tie (complete, without
soup spots) or even a new car,
which some coaches consider a

Oregon and Oregon State Relay Squads Tangle Today
State Rivals Compete at
One P. M. on Hayward
Field in Annual Event
Moved Forward an Hour
To Give Fans Chance
To Glimpse Meet and
Baseball Game Too
Colonel Bill Hayward's 1937 var
sity track squad makes its official
debut today on Hayward field in
the 10th running of the annual
Oregon-Oregon State relay carni
val. The meet will start promptly
at 1 o'clock, and is expected to be
over before the opening conference
ball game on Howe field.
The time of the meet, originally
set for 2 o’clock, was advanced one
hour in order to allow fans to wit
ness the carnival, then go up to
Howe field to take in the opening
varsity baseball game also between
Oregon and Oregon State.
Track Is Ready
With a sun shining most of yes
terday and good weather predicted
for today the track will be in fine
condition for record assaults. Last
year here on Hayward the Oregon
squad hung up four new marks.
The marks in greatest danger
today, according to pre-season pre
dictions are the shot put and the
high jump record. Two members
of last year’s record-making quar
tet in the shot, Bill Foskett and
Chan Berry, will compete again
today. Dutch Holland and Stan
Smith complete the Duck team
for this year.
First for Both
For both squads this is the first
appearance of the season. Dope
favors neither team as both have
been hit by graduation losses, and
lack of favorable training condi
tions during the spring.
Evidence as to the closeness of
the meet was obtained when neith
er coach would divulge his starting
lineup of men. With a small squad
of capable performers, Hayward
finds it necessary to so place his
men so that each will be of the
A new feature will be presented
today when station KORE, Eu
gene, broadcasts the meet directly
from the field. This is the first time
that a track meet has been broad
cast from Hayward oval.
Although neither Hayward nor
Carl Lodell, Beaver mentor, would
give out their definite lineups, the
probability is that the following
men will be used, but not neces

Exhibition Match With
Leader Tennis Shop
Team From Portland
Slated for Today
By CHUCK VAN SCOYOC
With Ol’ Sol out of hibernation
for a while, and spring definitely
in the air, the Oregon varsity net
men blossomed out in full force
once again to undergo a strenuous
training period in preparation for
the coming conference matches.
Mel Johnson, who is pinch-hit
ting for Coach Paul Washke, will
allow no waste of the precious
weather and has slated an exhibi
tion practice match with the Lead-:
er Tennis Shop of Portland for
today at 2:00.
It will be the first competition
for the Webfodts since they jour
neyed to Portland and defeated
Reed college a week ago. The
Leader team will be composed of
several Portland stars, most pro
minent of \yhom are Wesley Hart
man and Vic Ramis.
Hartman was on the Northwest
championship doubles team while
attending Whitman college. He
will be teamed with Ramis when
the independents invade the camp
us today. Ramis and Hartman are
the present holders of the Willam
ette Valley doubles championship.
Included on the Leader tetun
will be several high school stars
from the Rose city. There is a pos
sibility that some of the frosh
netmen will receive an opportunity
to work out during the match.
The tournament for the team
positions has not been completed
as yet, but with the playing of
the Economus-Cranc match next
week, the team positions will de
finitely be decided.
In what was believed to be the
longe^ singles match in the his
tory of Oregon varsity tennis, Rex
ABPlegate succeeded in outlasting
Bob Vaughn in a three hour due!
to gain position No. 6 on the team.
Scores were 12-10, 2-6, 16-if.
Neither man had an apparent
weak point and it was a case of
stamina that determined the
match. It is reported that the
pair wore out five tennis balls be
fore the fray subsided.
In a match for the No. 3 posi
tion, Chuck Eaton and Bill Zim
merman put on a spectacular ex
hibition with the 'former emerging
winner. 6-1, 7-9, 9-7. Both men
were evenly matched, and threat
