For Track Meet
Orr Top Runners on
By GEORGE PASERO
Although beaten by Idaho’s sur
prising Vandals in a dual meet at
Pullman last Saturday, the WSC
track and field squad which in
vades Eugene Saturday for a meet
with Oregon’s Webfoots still rate
on paper as the track power of
Coach Karl Schlademan will pre
sent for Webfoot track fans’ ap
proval a host of stars, some of
whom rank with the best in the
nation. Especially are the Cougars
powerful in the sprints where such
stalwarts as Lee Orr, Mel Petti
chord. and Curt Ledford hold out.
Orr ran fifth in the Berlin Olym
pics of 1936, and last year finished
third in the NCAA meet in his
specialty, the 220-yard dash. Led
ford won both sprints against
Idaho last week, while Pettichord
was competing at the Drake relays
along with Orr.

Hobby ..Hobson, ..Oregon’s ..suc
cessful basketball and baseball
coach is “definitely considering” a
job as physical education director
in the Portland school system, and
may have coached his last hoop
champion here. Jot that down in
He’s going to Portland this
weekend to confer with the Port
land school board about it, and
promises definite announcement
one way or the-other early next
The position has two lures
which Hobby isn't overlooking.
1. Money—the base salary is
$4,380—over a thousand more
than he got here in 1937-38, and
$530 more than he’ll get next year.
2. Future—in Portland he’d have
a nice position in a field in which
he got his master’s degree, physi
cal education, with far less worry
than he has coaching college ball.
Considering it further, the Rose
City job would be more or less
trial for two years, and' after that
he’d practically be in the system
for life. That’s the way they do
it in Portland.
Coaching college ball you’ve
practically got to produce steady
winners or get bounced.
The college coach has to cash
in, in other words, when he’s a
winner. Hobby as a winner now
is getting about $3,800, while
Coaches Jack Friel, Washington
State: Slats Gill, Oregon State, 1
and Hec Edmondson, Washington, j
are getting known salaries of I
$4,000 to $7,000. And the Webfoot !
mentor is more than holding his1
own with them in both the gate j
intake and the important games j
won and lost.
If tiie Webfoots could play over
.500 ball from now on in basket
ball, that sport’s gate would prob
ably take care of itself—and Hob
by might eventually get a salary
the winning coach deserves.
Whether he considers it too
much cf a gamble we’ll know next
. Send the Emerald to the folks.
They want the campus news.
