    DUCK
TRACKS
By ELBERT HAWKINS
Fumiors are beginning to buzz ■
about the campus that Oregon’s
gifted swimming coach, Mike Hoy
nian, may have coached his last
season here.
'Jo the swimmers themselves,
iand close followers of the sport,
it's a panicky thought. Mike Hoy
man started tutoring swimming at
Oregon just six years ago, and in
that short period built teams of
nation-wide reputation.
Three northern division cham
pionships, one coast title, and an
tiadefeated dual record up to this
year tell only part of the story.
Mis men have held world, national,
coast, northwest, and state records.
Mike Hoyman did this practical
ly alone. His athletes will verify
that. Swimmers come to Oregon
because of Hoyman’s reputation as
u louilder of champions, not be
cause they’re lured by financial
rewards.
I
' The facts are this. Whereas the
evunming tutor at Oregon State
gets in the neighborhood of $300
ju t for the time he devotes to that
sport, Mike Hoyman does it here
purely gratis.
These persistent rumors—which
shouldn’t be ignored — are that
Coach Hoyman has applied for a
year's leave of absence to attend
Columbia university where he could
finish his doctorate work. It’s no
secret that Mike has had that in
in end.
He publicly stated last year that
swimming was only a sideline, that
h > chief interest is on the frontier
of school health education.
Phi Beta Kappa Mike Hoyman
might profitably devote his “gratis
swimming time” to the field of
health education he has chosen to
fodow. If Hoyman were to get a
year's leave of absence to Columbia
he would probably be gone from
.Oregon forever. There would be no
financial lure for him to return.
Mike's swimmers are worried,
ami these rumors are worthy of
further research. They’ll get it.

treks to Portland as guests at an
tiUimni banquet in honor of Coach
'lev Oliver, new football headman,
jjae’ll be interviewed over KOIN
this afternoon at 2:15 if you’re in
ten's! ed.
Contrary to the head on an Ore
gonian sports story last week, Ore
gon’s gridders are not drilling to
music. Coach Oliver is using a
metronome—the affair which beats
time for musicians—but there’s no
music to it. The metronome’s click,
click is used on baekfield men so
they’ll get the rhythm of Oliver’s
fchift.

Assistant Coach Bill Marshall,
in the absence of Coach Howard
Hobson, who was in Portland yes
terday, indicated that four hurl
ers, Bob Creighton, LeRoy Mat
tingly, John Linde, and’ Bob Hardy,
have a chance to work in Thurs
day’s opening ball game with
Portland university here.
Creighton and Linde have been
coming along fast, but the'other
two have been a little slow get
ting their arms into condition.
Hardy has been bothered by the
leg fracture received playing bas
ketball, but appears now to be
rapidly rounding into form.
Mattingly was a little slow in
getting started because of other
activities, but his fire ball is be
ginning to hop like it did in the
middle of last season.
Lineup Fairly Definite
The rest of the lineup is fairly
definite, although the problem of
Where to put Wimpy Quinn has
yet to be definitely decided.
Quinn has had plenty of experi
ence in independent baseball, hav
ing played with the state semi-pro
champs last summer, then going
up to Vancouver, B. C. where he
played with Bill Sayles in the
Vancouver city league.
Wimpy is too hard a hitter to
be put on the bench, but by trade
is an infielder. The Oregon in
field, however, is a veteran com
bination with Gale Smith on first,
Jack Coleman on second, Jack
Gordon at shortstop, and Captain
Ford Mullen on third. All are re
; turning lettermen.
For the present, Quinn will
probably be used in right field,
along with Masa Kato and Ken
Battleson, returning reserves, who
have shown best of the outfieldei’S
in practice to date.

the catching job, while Maury
Kelly, showing vast improvement
over his last year’s performance
with the frosh, is the reserve
catcher.
For the second day, no regular
practice was held for infielders
and outfielders, except those who
were ambitious enough to indulge
in a game of “pepper” in the Ig
loo.
The pitchers and catchers came
in for more than their share of
work, putting time in on control
and other intricacies mound
,work. A couple of laps around
the board hallways of the Igloo
topped off their workouts.
Warren Wins Top
Honors in Hearst
Gun Competition
Recent announcement of the
winner of the annual Hearst Na
tional ROTC trophy competition
placed Stanley Warren of the Ore
gon rifle corps in the top position.
Although the Oregon team,
winners of the trophy in 1935 and
1937, lost the title this year, Wai’
ren scored' 199 hits out of a pos
sible 200 to take first place.
This is one of the best showings
made by an individual shooter in
his competition in many years,
Colonel E. V. D. Murphy said.
