Beavers Conceded Only
One First Place Saturday
In Dual Meet With Ducks
Benny Dufresne Certain to Take High lump;
Close Races Expected in 440, 880, Relay;
Captain Holland Cinch in Discus
By GEORGE PASERO
Given an edge in all but three events, the high jump, 440 and re
lay, Colonel Bill Hayward’s Webfoot track and field forces will in
vade Corvallis Saturday for the 33rd renewal of Oregon-Oregon State
Already holding victories over the Washington Huskies and
Washington State Cougars, Hayward’s standard bearers will be shoot
ing for their third consecutive victory and the mythical dual meet
title of the Northwest when they face Grant Swan’s proteges.
The Beavers turned back the Huskies by a 67 to 64 score this
season, and last week, the Bea
vers lost to these same Huskies,
99 to 31, winning only two events.
The high jump is the only event
in which the Orangemen of Cor
vallis will have a definite advan
tage. Benny Dufresne, a sopho
omore from Rosetaurg, is rapidly
becoming the peer of the North
west in his specialty. Breaking
records in every meet he has en
tered, the rubber-legged leaper
cleared 6 feet 5 inches on one oc
casion, and' last Saturday, hopped
-over the 6 foot 4 inch mark.
Against the Huskies, Morrison
won the only other first place the
Beavers were able to salvage. He
threw the javelin 184 feet 10
i inches. Saturday, Morrison will
have Oregon’s Boyd Brown, unde
feated in two meets, to contend
with. Brown flashed the spear
197 feet to win this event in the
May Be in 880
' Another race m which the Bea
vers are given a chance to garner
first-place points is the half-mile
where a great triangular battle
• looms between Dave Lewis and
Oregon’s speedy Kirman Storli
and Jimmy Schriver. Storli has
won every race he has entered
this year, but Colonel Bill gives
Schriver a very good chance of
copping honors Saturday,
f Mack Robinson and Jimmy Buck
have all the backing in the sprints,
as have Bob Mitchell, Don Barker,
and Crawford Lyle in the distance
races. Chief competition for the
Oregon sprinters will come from
Bob Leslie who has run the cen
' tury in around 9.8 seconds.
If Robinson runs the quarter, he
will be favored to lope home in
' front, but if he confines himself
to the sprints, this event will be
up in the air.
Harry Weston and' Bob Good
• fellow, Duck high hurdlers, will
1 have to put out to the limit if they
hope to beat Frank Mandic, Bea
r verTngh sticker.
; Holland Has Best Thow
Captain Len Holland looks safe
in the discus as no Beaver placed
against Washington in the platter
throw. Holland will also throw
/ the shot. He hits 44 feet consist

any Oregon Stater could do Sat
George Varoff, dubbed “cueball”
since his haircut, is ready to try
for 14 feet. His leg injury, which
has bothered him all season, ap
parently is much better.

may go to the Beaver quartet if
Hayward keeps his aces in indi
In an effort to bolster the 440
and the relay, Hayward has en
tered Frank Van Vliet, a sprinter
who has been out all year writh a
bad leg, in these events. Entry of
Van Vliet will leave Dean Ellis
free to compete in the low hurdles.

In Error Battle
Oregon’s Ducklings kicked away
a ball game in the fifth inning of
their battle with the Hills Creek
State league team yesterday when
they erred four times to give the
Hillsmen three runs on no hits.
Lanny Allegretto started on the
mound for the frosh and later was
relieved by Bob Reider.
The affair was air tight until the
fifth when the frosh committed
four of their seven errors. In the
seventh the frosh got one run back
when Herb Hamer, talkative first
baseman, doubled, took third on a
wild pitch, and scored on an infield
In the ninth Tini Smith doubled,
went to third on an outfield fly,
and scored on an error.
