    Milligan, Low in District, Eliminated in National
Oregon’s Coach-Captain9
In Running Monday, Falls
Out of Meet on Second 18
36-Hole Total of 157 Keeps University
Golfer Out of Cliainpionsliip Flight
By 4 Strokes; Drove First Ball
An off-day on Portland's long Alderwood course and an SI Tuesday
kept Sid Milligan, University of Oregon’s number one golfer, out of match
play in the round of 64 for the United States National Amateur cham
Playing in rain which sent the scores of many famed stars skyrocket
ing into the eighties, Milligan was well down in the low bracket Monday
night with a safe 76.
imseeling omy a 77 or a 78 to gain
the championship flight and with
Alderwood's long fairways in much
better playing condition, Sid struck
an off-day in his game Tuesday and
ran his 36-hole total to 157 with an
81. One of twelve golfers who tied
at 154 was qualified.
Second in District
Milligan qualified handily in the
district playoffs, finishing second
only to Don Moe, Oregon team cap
tain of 1930 and former Walker cup
The luck of the draw for starting
positions in Oregon’s presentation
of the world’s greatest amateur
golfing event brought Milligan the
honor of teeing off first in the quali
fying round. He drove the first ball
to lead off a huge contingent of si
mon-pure divoteers.

Dr. Ralph W. Leighton, who will
j replace Dr. John Bovard as dean
j of the school of physical education,
is very much interested in athletics,
although his first love has always
been the field of education. Ho
advocates physical education pri
marily for reason of health and
“The part that physical educa
; tion is to play in the lives of stu- i
dents is to add to their general
education, to help them solve their
problems of living, and to enrich
their lives,” Dr. Leighton said.
“The physical education school is
recognized as one of the strongest
schools and it has always kept
abreast of developments. We be
lieve that it will continue to do so. j
Physical education is in line for
development. The stale depart
ment of education is pushing it in |
public schools, and, we believe, it
will assume greater importance.”
Dr. Leighton did his undergradu
ate work at Idaho and Iowa. At
i College of Idaho he helped Anse
I Cornell with track and football.
He has been interested in baseball
as well as football, wrestling, and ,
Leighton came to Oregon in 1928
as a professor of education. As a
former college football player, he
has maintained his former interest
in athletics. At various times, he
has assisted Cap McKcwan, Doc
Spears, and Prink Callison as
Dean Leighton believes that his
school and the intercollegiate ath
letic department should cooperate,
for it is the men who have made
their marks as athletes whose ser-1
