^REETINGS. you high school
cindermen! May you enjoy
these two short days on the Uni
versity of Oregon campus, and we
frankly hope every record in the
books :s smashed. There’s some
hope in that score, for Bill Black
ledge, Corvallis powerhouse weight
man, came through yesterday af
ternoon to heave the iron ball for
a new mark of 51 feet 7 3-8 inches.
Some of those records are going
to stick, but for your edification
we're going to list them.

rj^HERE you are preppers, read
’em and weep. Those marks
include only annual meets since
their renewal in 1927. If you want
to include all-time, two marks
which have stood since 1912 will
have to be considered. They are
in the 880 and the mile. Back in
t that pre-war meet which was held
in Eugene, a guy named Windnagle
from Washington high of Port
land negotiated the half-mile in
1:56.8. His teammate, Wilson, ran
the mile in 4 :29.
Hefty Blackledge’s record shot
heave yesterday wasn’t the only
outstanding performance, for he
also heaved the discus to within
three inches of the 131 feet 11 1-2
inch record. Eagleton of Franklin
threatened the 440 time in yester
day's trials by dashing it in 51.9
mark of Jim Schriver’s. The pole
vault record will also be under
dangerous fire today as Bend’s
Hendershott steps into action.
IJEST easier baseball fans for
Hobby's Wcbfoot nine WILL
NOT have to play those two Wash
ington games which were rained
out here last week. They would be
a pair of sweel games to watch,
we’ll grant that, but not having to
play them makes the champion
ship situation considerably easier
for Oregon. The Lemon-Yellow
baseballers can cinch the pennant
by downing Oreegon State here
either Friday or Saturday. One
victory will positively settle it.
The confereenee ruling on post
poned games was called to our at
tention yesterday afternoon by
Coach Hobson. It was written into
the northern division rules follow
ing a meeting of the graduate
managers in Seattle on August 30,
1031. In order to avoid further
confusion, we’ll give the rule as it
now appears.

played off as follows: If
througn some cause uncontrollable
by either institution a regular
scheduled game is not played, a
double header shall be played on

game is to be played between the
two institutions.
“In ease no game is to be
played on the Saturday following

other date and the postponed game

Prep Stars Wind Up Meet Here Today
Bend High Dominates
Field in Qualifying For
This Afternoon’s Finals
Washington and Grant Squads Lead
Portland Entries; Blaekledge Tosses
Ball to Record
(Co-sports editor, the Emerald)
Heralded as one of the finest teams to represent the up-state
country in years, a powerful Bend high school track and field
squad dominated the field in the gualifying heats of the eleventh
annual Oregon State championships which opened yesterday
afternoon on Hayward field.
The Lava Bears gave promise that they might be the first
team in years to break the long domination of Portland high
schools in the annual event by placing nine men and their relay
quartet in the finals slated for this afternoon. They also have
Ray Klienfeldt, 1936 champion in the mile run, scheduled to
defend his crcwn today, giving them the honor of having the
largest team in the finals.
Two Portland Schools, Grant
and Washington, followed in men
qualified with six each. The Co
lonial relay quartet also garnered
a place in the finals. Other teams
that qualified several men are
Franklin, Portland, and Salem,
five; Eugene, Medford, Hood River,
and Grants Pass with four apiece.
Rose City teams have a virtual
cinch ''n district honors with an
overwhelming number of qualifiers.
Blackledge Breaks Mark
On the huge biceps of Bill Black
ledge rested the honor of breaking
the only record of the day. Black
ledge, 1936 champion in the shot
and discus, heaved the leaden ball
51 feet 7 3-8 inches to better the
mark of 51 feet 2 1-2 inches set
by Anderson in 1935.
The husky Corvallis weight star
also won the discus with a toss of
131 feet 8 1-2 inches which is but
three inches short of the existing
record in this event.
Miller Nicholson’s Lava Bears
were paced by Dickson who took
his heat in the 220 lbw sticks, first
in the broad jump, a place in the
high hurdles, and Francis, a slim
speedster, who took heats in both
the 100 yard dash and 220 yard
Diez Cops Two
Diez, Franklin, cream of the
Portland sprint crop, gave notice
that he will be in the money this
afternoon with wins in both his
sprint heats. Eagleton, also from
the Quaker school, turned in the
best time of the 140-yard dash
heats by sprinting to a :51.9 finish
in his race. If pressed today, the
Portland entry is expected to
eclipse the state mark of :51.2.
Finals in all events will start
this afternoon at 1:30 o'clock with
the same order of events holding
effect. The mile will be inserted,
however, moving several races
back slightly on the program.
At the conclusion of each event
this afternoon individual winners
will be presented with awards.
The winner of the 880-yard run
will receive one-year possession of
the Vere Windnagle cup. If some
runner breaks Windnagle's record,
which was made in 1912, he will
be awarded permanent possession
of the silverware.
A handsome trophy will go to
the team having the greatest to
tal of points. The district making
the best showing will also receive
an award.
Walter Hummel will act as chief
starter again this afternoon.
The list of men who qualified
for today's finals are as follows:
Shot put Blackledge, Corvallis;
Regner. Grant; Swindell, Eugene;
Hare, Sheridan; Stone, West Linn;
Stamm, Grant; Pruess, Grants
Pass, and Pritchett, Grants Pass.

Thirteen Men
Will Compete
In Seattle Tiff
\aroff Expected to Top
Boh Robinson’s Vault
Mark; Foskett and
Holland Should Win
Expected to have a hard fight
for third and with a slim chance
to land in second place, Coach Bill
Hayward’s under-dog 13-man track
team will compete with Washing
ton, Washington State, Oregon
State, and Idaho for honors in the
northern division track meet in
Seattle this afternoon.
Dutch Holland, California’s big
contribution to the Oregon team, is
favored to take first place in the
discus throw. It is doubtful if he
can better the mark of 157 feet
2 inches made by Moeller of Ore
gon in 1929, but with good luck
and coordination he might possibly
equal the record.
Undefeated in this year’s compe
tition, Bill Foskett is a sure bet

Track Careers This Spring
Three University of Oregon track stars, Frank “Squeak” Lloyd,
Ken Miller, and team-captain Sam McGaughey, who will hang up their
spikes this spring, will be conspicuous next year by their absence from
the Hayward cinderways.
Each a number one man in his event, these three have dona their
shore in winning firsts for dear old Oregon and have won plenty of
recognition in the Pacific coast track circles.

McGaughey, the distance runner
who, however, is not averse to
running a fast quarter mile or even
a sprint. Counting his freshman

years on the cinders, and on this,
his senior year, he was made cap
Sam was one of those who started
turning out early in the fall for
cross-country and started his
spring training right after New
Year. McGaughey has had but one
ambition this year and that is to
run the mile in 4:20 or less.
“Squeak” Lloyd is just rounding
off about 13 years of vigorous ath
letic activity. He started when he
joined the YMCA in Pennsylvania
as a kid swimmer. Ho is thinking
of making swimming his sport
On the track his main forte is
the broad jump, having leaped 25
feet 8 Vi inches. He is intending to
crack the northwest conference
meet record up in Seattle today,

ankle permits him. “Squeak11

Needs One Win
To Take Title
League Ruling Prevents
Replaying of Husky
Series; Two Contests
Left With OSC
In second place in the northern
division baseball chase when they
left Eugene over a week ago, Ore
gon's victorious Webfoots returned
l to town yesterday needing but a
single win over Oregon State to
clinch the 1937 championship.
The Ducks made an inauspicious
entrance into town yesterday de
spite a gala parade by University
students, beating local supporters
to the station. A large crowd of
fans turned out to voice their ap
proval over Oregon’s sensational
winning streak up north.
Two More Tilts
According to northern division
rules on postponements Oregon
and Washington will not replay
the pair of games which were rain
ed out on Howe field a week ago
last Monday and Tuesday. That
leaves only two conference games
against Oregon State to wind up
Oregon's present schedule.
Coach Howard Hobson’s boys are
a full game out in front of Buck
Bailey's Washington Staters, and
need but one win in their last two
games to make the championship
mathematically certain.
Beavers Improve
Slats Gill's lowly Orangemen,
twice kicked over by Oregon this
season, will wind up the pennant
race on Howe field next Friday
and Saturday afternoons.
The Beavers spilled Washington
i once at Seattle, and then moved
over to Moscow to grab a pair
| from Idaho's lowly Vandal crew.
Hit in Pinches
Hitting in the pinches was one
of the main reasons for Oregon's
amazing six victories in seven
games against Washington State,
Washington, and Idaho said Coach
Hobson yesterday. The Duck men
tor was well pleased with his ball
Lloyd and McGaughey expect to
come back to school next fall to
round up a tew more hours of class
work required for graduation.
“Squeak” is majoring in social sci
ence and Sam is in business admin

last year. After a mediocre season
he ran the half mile in 1:53.4 to

Well, all thee who have awaited with bated breath my daily screen
ing; for the past some time, as this is the final appearance of this rag
for the season, I won't keep you too long from your morning's bath.
The first little item that I want to put before you is the final results
of the northern division track meet at Seattle as compiled by myself
and a corps of assistants, who have been peering into archives, arti
chokes and egg plants for many months just to give you a sure-fire
betting angle so you can go home with your pockets bulging with
The tough part about picking the correct results was the lack of
information concerning the Idaho and Montana teams. Of course,
1 don't expect either to win, but these two are always coming in with
a few points here and there. Which is my alibi if I don't hit this.
So mortgage the old sorority, sell Johnson hall to one of the visiting
coaches and put the dough on the following men to finish in the order
presented (1-2-3-4).
100-yard dash—L. Orr (WSC); Ledford (WSC); Humber (W);
Hay (W).
320-yard dash—Same as century—honest.
440-yard dash — Benke (WSC); Nettlcton (WSC); Montgomery
(VV) ;*J. Orr (WSC).
(880-yard run—Palmason ( W); Miller (O); Kintner (W); Lewis
Mile—MrGaughey (O); Shepard (OSC); Trowbridge (W); Wooten
Two-mile—Shepard (OSC); Little (WSC); (Lyle (O); Angle (W).
120-yard high hurdles—McGoldrick (W); Taylor (WSC); Willard
(WSC); Stutfield (W).
220-yard low hurdles—Benke, (WSC); McGoldrick (W); Taylor
(WSC); Anshutz (W).
Broad jump—Lloyd (O); Panton (W); Fitcliard (O); Fiser (WSC).
High jump—Vandermay (W); Akerson (OSC); Smith (WSC) and
Beamer (OSC) tie.
Pole vault—Varoff (O); Harr (WSC); Childs (W); Idaho man.
Shot put—Foskett (O); Berry (O); Johnson (I); Markov (W).
Discus—Holland (O); Campbell (WSC); Deming (OSC); Berry (O).
Javelin—Johnson (I); Nelson (WSC); M. Miller (VV); Koskello (O).
Mile clay—Washington State, Washington, Oregon, Oregon State.
Counting up the points in the above array you will find that Wash
ington State is going to win with a total of 57 counters, the Huskies
coming second with 43i.j, Oregon third with 3D, Oregon State 16Vi,
nnd Idaho 8 j. That’s leaving the growling Grizzlies from Montana
out in their cold winter, but I can’t help that.
Of course the Webfoots might slip into the second stall and I will
be heck of a happy mann to see myself out-guessed, but put your
Townsend dough on that above list, and you all will be spending that
$200 a month.

A word about the prep track meet this afternoon. The big field of
234 entries were whittled down yesterday to almost half leaving the
best to perform for you today.
I venture to say that some of the fellows churning today will be the
one’s you will be marveling at, ip, a, few years. .The barrel-chested
Blackledge boy from our neighbor city of Corvallis is probably the
best college prospect. But I think our neighbors have him sewed up.
Jimmy Halloway, Vere Windnagle’s all-aound star; Schultz from For
esL Grove; Francis and Dickson, a great looking Lava Bear duo; are
several more that I imagine will be getting the arm-around-the-shoulder
talk before long.
Thus windeth up a year that found me with not enough sleep most
of the time. And with your jpermission I will say goodbye, and so to
bed (for days and days and days).
But Van Duscu still owes me that two-bits—how am I going to
