    Ducks, Beavers Even on
Records Heldfor All-Time
In Annual Relay Classic
It’ll be “horse and horse” as I
far as records are concerned when
the cinder aces of Oregon and Ore
gon State meet on the Hayward
oval Saturday afternoon in the
11th annual Webfoot-Beaver relay
Oregon holds all-time marks in
the mile, shot put, two mile, and
440-yard relays, while Oregon
State is the possessor of records in
the 880-yard, four mile, high jump,
and shuttle relays.
Classy Field in ’36
On a spring day in 1936, the
classiest field of performers ever
to compete in the colorful relay
carnival raced over the Hayward
cinder paths. Four records were
broken that day, and every mark
set still stands.
Two of them were broken bj* the
Beavers and two were pushed into
the “ex”classification by runners
wearing the Lemon and Green.
Oregon’s great quartet of half
milers of that year—Sam Mc
Gaughey, Ken Miller, Alvin Kropp,
and Captain George Scharf—hung'
up a mark that may stand for a
long time to come, touring the two- j
mile distance in 7:52.8.
Oregon State had its inning a |
little later as Grant Swan’s crack !
distance men set a new mark of;
,18.19 minutes in the four-mile re
|lay. Running on this team were
Norman Rands, Dave Shepard,
Ernie Guggisberg, and Matt Clas

Sprinters Powerful
Colonel Bill Hayward’s powerful
array of versatile cinder stars!
chalked up another record-break
ing assault that day when Bill Mc
Donald, Short Freeman, Barney
Hall, and Howard Patterson won
the coveted mile relay crown with
a time of 3:23.4

relay. The combined height was
23 feet, 8 inches.
Two meet records were set last
year, one by Oregon State and one
by Oregonl Bill Foskett, Chan

inches. The Orange sprint team

Two Marks Old
Only two records have had rela
tively long lives. Oldest record is
Oregon State’s 1:01.6 in the shut
tle relay set by Martin, Dunkin,
Prentiss, and Dufresne.
In 1932, an Oregon sprint team
led by one of Oregon’s track im
mortals, Paul Starr, and including
Hamilton, Holman, and Bales
clipped off 42.6 in the 440-yard re

Down Frosh
Netters; 4-3
Two state champion tennis play
ers on one team proved too much
for Oregon’s frosh netmen to
swallow yesterday, as the star
studded Grant high school edged
out a 4 to 3 victory over Washke’s
yearlings in the opening tiff of
the season.
Emory Neale, state interscho
lastic singles champion, and Leon
ard Clark, frosh No. 1 singles man,
battled for nearly two hours, in
the feature singles match, the
Grant captain coming out on top,
2-6, 6-2, 9-7.
Clark got off to a flying start
in the first set, slipped in the sec
ond, and in the deciding round,
both men battled on even terms,
the set going to sixteen games be
fore Clark faulted into the net to
give the match to Neale.
Phillipi Wins
In the No. 2 singles match, the
Yearling’s Dick Phillipi turned on
the heat to drop Ned Jungck, state
boys champ, 6-4, 6-3, in another
thrilling exhibition of racquet play.
Phillipi’s hard serves and smashes
proved too much for the diminu
tive prep star to handle.
i Dick Williams playing in the
No. 3 singles spot smashed and
lobbed his way to a hard earned
win over Jack McCliment of the
Generals, 7-5, 6-3. Williams’ con
tinued lobbing proved plenty trou
blesome to the Grant lad who in
exasperation, frequently drove tiis
smashes for errors.
Bob Engelke lost’ two heart
breaking matches to Kermit Smith
General No. 4 man, 8-6, 8-6, in a
contest that featured everything
in the book. The players were very
evenly matched, Smith gaining his
margin for the win on errors by
Engelke. 1
Shaw Over Rennolds
Paul Shaw, a carrot-topped lad
from Grant, gave the Generals the
edge in the singles contest, by
drubbing Lee Rennolds of the
frosh, 6-3, 6-2. Shaw had entirely
too much on the ball for Rennolds
to handle, although the diminutive
yearling put up a good battle
throughout the match.
In the doubles matches, Jungck
and Shaw put the afternoon’s fes

Another Chapter for
Colonel Bill's Book
If and when Colonel Bill Hay
ward writes his memoirs (and in
cidentally he has said he is work
ing on them), he will, in all prob
ability, devote a chapter of his
bo6k to what he considers the best
vantage point from which to
view a track meet.
For around 60 years, Colonel
Bill has watched track meets or
competed in them, and this spring
marks his 35th year as Oregon’s
tivities on ice for the Generals,
when they capitalized on the some
what wild playing of yearlins Wil
liams and Engelke, to win easily,
6-3, 6-2. Weak net play and bad
ly placed drives, cost the Duck
lings the match.
After losing the first doubles
match, 6-3, the ace frosh duet of
Clark and Phillipi rose from the
depths to lace the visiting com
bination of McCliment and Neale,
6-4, 6-2, in the next two sessions.
Clark’s stellar net play, combined
with the too numerous errors of
Grantonian McCliment, was large
ly responsible for the Duckling
track coach.
During this time he’s watched
spectators gather around the fin-^
ish, sit in remote sections of the
stands, clutter up the infield (and
incidentally more than once suf
fered injury while others narrow
ly escaped), and crowd the track.
If Bill Watched
If Bill, himself, were watching
a meet in the role of an ordinary
spectator (if that could be imag
ined), he wouldn't sit near the
finish line, at least not on Hay
w-ard field. He would seek a seat
in the stands upposite the 220
straightaway from where he could
see the entire track, the finish and
everything that happened during
the race.
Bill realizes that the spectators
like to come into near hand-to
hand' with the athletes, but he does
feel that it is dangerous for spec
tators to be on the infield, and
that, so long as spectators are
not allowed on the infield at any
other track, it is not too much to
ask the Oregon students to sit in
the stands Saturday when the
Beavers and Ducks meet in the
11th annual relays.
