Hayward Field to Be
Scene of 29th Clash
Of Two Cinder Teams
- Feuding Started in 1906:
Records in Danger at
l Roth Teams Point foi
e First Dual Win
Ever since the era of bustles anc
bicycles built for two light afte:
the turn of the present century ii
1906, Oregon and Oregon State
track squads have been baring
their chests and vieing for suprem
acy on the cinder paths.
This Saturday on Hayward fielc
will be the 29th time that thej
have met and Oregon has, in those
29 years won 18 meets. Since 193i
when the Ducks dropped a close
encounter, they have won four
straight events and are pointing
to make it a half a decade in a
row this Saturday. In 1911, 1915,
and 1917 no events were held.
Records Stand
No records have stood the as
sault of the constant batterings
of athletes since the first meet
and the oldest record on the books
is in the 100-yard dash which was
set by Baker of OSC in 1913, and
has since been tied by Lowry,
Oregon, 1929, and Starr, Oregon,
Two records were made last
year at Corvallis when George
Scharpf, then captain of the Web
foots, ran the mile in 4:20 flat and
i big Bill Foskett tossed the 16
i pound shot 49 feet 2 '4 inches.
Weather Clears
Judging from performances thus
far this season, several old records
will be erased from the books and
new ones written in this Saturday
as both squads, straining for a
victory, fight it out.
With the weather clear and a
warm sun shining at last, Colonel
Bill Hayward was able to put his
men through a satisfactory work
out yesterday afternoon.
Speed Work Held
Short distance and dash men
were given speed work and field
and weight men tried for improve
ment in form. After today's ses
sion on the cinders, it is probable
that Hayward will name the 18
men to wear Oregon colors this
It is probable that the same
men who have been taken on the
two road trips to Seattle and Pull
man this year will make up the
squad, but all positions are wide
open and those showing up best
in the time trails will be given
the nod.
Hayward Confident
Several time trials were held
yesterday with more due today as
the veteran mentor attempts to
select a strong and well-balanced

The squad wound up prepara
tions yesterday in a two-hour drill
on Howe field. The Ducks indulged
in a little batting practice at the
start, and then wound up with a
peppy infield drill. Gale Smith,
Jack Coleman, Jack Gordon, and
Ford Mullen were whipping the
pill around like it was a hot potato.
Fifteen May Travel
Hobby stated yesterday that he
would probably take a fifteen-man
traveling squad on the northern
trip, although all of the berths'
were not definitely chosen. Sojnc
of the utility men may have to

in that case would have to alter
his plans.

Sayles, Bob Hardy, pitchers; Gale
Smith, Ford Mullen, Jack Gordon,
Jack Coleman, Ralph Amato, in

letting in the first Theta Chi run.
The Comets tied the score in the
third, but in their half of the
fourth, the Theta Chis again scored.
The Comets then tied the score in
the fourth, only to have the Theta
Chis couple hits with Comet error.;
to put across the two winning runs.
In their last bats, the Comets
were powerless before Bob Street’s

I clown with two hits, topping Pete
Igoe, Eugene's veteran right hand
er, 5 to 0, as the frosh ran their
winning streak to 10 straight
Wimpy Quinn continued as the
opposition’s chief poison, getting a
home run and a double in four
times up. His double started the
fifth inning, and was followed by
Lyle Goode’s infield out, on which
Wimp took third. He scored on
Thunemann’s single to center.
Quinn Socks Homer
Quinn's next time up, in the
sixth, he hit his circuit clout just
after Igoe had caught Jimmy Jones
off first.
Johnny Linde, second man up in
the inning, walked, took second on
Igoe's wild pitch, and scored on
Jones’ single to left.
Two of Igoe's five walks were
given to Thuncmann and Maury
Kelly, cherubic catcher, to start off
the seventh. Tommy Cox set down
a bunt. The catcher threw high
to first, scoring Thunemann from
second and putting Kelly on third.
Maury then crossed the plate on
Linde’s long fly to centerfield.
Jimmy Stevenson, high scoring
basketball forward, doubled in the
second inning, while Burke Austin,
another hooper, singled to center
in the eighth, for the two hits off
Thunemann. Paul struck out 10
and only gave up two walks in the
eight innings he worked. Quinn
pitched the ninth and last inning
for the frosh. Igoe also struck out
10 men.
