That arm trouble called bursitis
which has checked the career of
many a promising baseball pitcher
isn’t really curtains for the unfor
tunate if he wants to stay with
Forrest Twogood, the Idaho
(loach, who has a typical case of i
bursitis in his pitching wing, says,
"I never did lose my stuff, I’ve got
it now.” Pain from the bursitis and
a split biseps tendon stopped him.
Otherwise you might right now be
reading about a Pitcher Twogood
of the Cleveland Indians.
What is bursitis? “What it real
ly is,” he says, “a fluid sack in
your arm bursts.” That takes
away the arm’s lubrication and
causes the joint to have a gristle
and feel sandy. Then it hurts. Two
gie first injured his arm in 1927
when pitching for the University
of Iowa. And he stuck it out for
seven more years.
After leaving Iowa he was with
the St. Louis Cardinals for several
years and wound up with a couple
of seasons on the Cleveland In
dian roster, the Indians still own
ing him. In the spring of ’34 when
'the Cleveland club was working
out at New Orleans the bursitis
~ot to hurting so much Twogie
out himself on the voluntary re
i 'red list. Understand, he still
■'ins bursitis didn’t take away
- v of the natural pitching stuff.
St Louis Cardinal money helped
Forrest Twogood through college,
fact he doesn’t deny. Twogie
says, “It kept me above the subsist
ence level—so I got the most out
of college.” Iowa had him as a
football player, a good one too,
but a broken leg in his sophomore
ar ended the grid aspirations.
The practice of major league
lubs sending baseballers through
-ollege isn’t a bit unusual, quite
naturally. Examples can be found
not far from home. Take big Bill
Sayles, for instance. He speed
bared for Oregon two seasons ago,
pitching Hobby Hobson’s Webfoot
team to a northern division cham-!
pionship in his sophomore year.!
But Big Bill was the property of
the Boston Red Sox and he quit
school. Twogood had a gentlemen’s
agreement with the Cardinals, and
he finished school and got the al
mighty degree.
George Varoff is no longer a
pole vault champion of the world
with his indoor and outdoor rec
ords both gone. But right, now lie’s
even a stronger bet than ever to
hit the mythical 15-foot ceiling.
day vaulted over 14 feet indoors,
which Colonel Bill Hayward says
Is a full six inches over his mark
of the same time last year. Colonel
Bill has long believed George can
vault 15 feet, and this year will be i
the Californian’s last chance In!
**: rj< *1*
George actually cleared the bar
at 15 feet in a southern meet as a
sophomore, but he knocked it off
on the way down. Last winter at
this time his best was around 13
feet 6 inches, and because of a
bad leg he really didn’t get started
during the spring. George's best
vaulting last year was done during
the summer months in Europe. In
tne famous words of Emerald Edi
tor Paul Deutschmann, "Things
are looking up.” With 14 feet al
ready bettered in the middle of
February, Pole Vaulter George
Varoff bids fair to have a record
season. * * *
Up one season and down the
next, or down one season and up
the next. Take your choice. That
is the plight of the freshman bas
ketball coaches of Oregon and
Oregon State'.
Wild Bill McKalip at Beaver
ville had promise of a great rook
quintet last winter what with a
couple of Bellfountain "giant kil
lers” and a few others. But in
eligibility riddled McKalip's team
and he had to sit in silent pain and
watch Honest John Warren's Ore
gon freshmen run rough-shod over
the Orange babes in four straight
Then the tables turned. Honest
John had a pretty fair bunch of
Ducklings lined up last December
tc play on his Oregon yearling
team of 1938. He did. that is, until
examinations came along and took
away four of his best athletes.!
Right now the Ducklings are in
the middle of their worst season
under Honest John, have already
btn walloped twice by McKalip's
smooth and definitely superior
rooks, and don't stand to win
either of the last two unless- un
less both teams have a shocking
reversal of form.

NIA, Berkeley, Feb. 15.—(Special
to Emerald)—The traveling Uni
versity of Oregon swimming team
downed the Golden Bears of Cali
fornia by a score of 40 to 35 this
afternoon at the Berkeley pool.
Five meet record's were broken,
and the Ducks broke three of
them. Oregon's new marks came
in the 300-yard medley relay
(Sherm Wetmore, Jack Dallas, Jim
Mamie), 150 - yard backstroke
(Sherm Wetmore), and the 200
yard breast stroke (Jack Dallas)
Aronson of California established
a. new mget record of :24.8 in the
50-yard dash. The Bear team
Clarke, Figely, Cox, and Gerdes—
set a new record of 3:50.4 in the
400-yard free-style relay.
Wcbfoots Show Well
The Wcbfoots stood the effects
of the trip well, as was witnessed
by the fast times turned in. Sherm
Wetmore, super-streamlined' soph
omore, turned in his best time
1:42.3 in the 150-yard backstroke
“Captain Jack" Levy has showi
remarkable improvement in this
event. The “Milwaukee Mariner’
came in second to Wetmore. Lcvj

events, but recently has demon

flying sophomore, left the best
California could offer in his wash
as he swept through the 25-yard

las, exponent of the strenuous
“butterfly” stroke, has never been
beaten in this event. Veteran
Ralph Laffert.y asserted his right
to the order of breast strokers as
he came in second, well ahead of
California’s Woodman.
Win Medley
“Maui” Jim Marnie chipped in
wilh Wetmore and Dallas to aid
in turning up a new meet record in
the 300-yard medley relay. Their
time of 3:09 is somewhat under

Unhappy Ducklings
Worry Super-Varsity
Warren's Hoopmen
Lose Close Game
By 54-46 Count
Coach John Warren's unhappy
Ducklings threw a scare into the
super-varsity in a scrimmage ses
sion last night when they were
nosed out by ttie Hobson-men by a
score of 54 to 40.
Still harping on accurate passing
with hopes that the frosh will snap
out of their doldrums and knock
over the Oregon Slate rooks this
Friday, the yearling mentor kept a
tabulation on poor passes thrown
in the game and found the results
far from satisfactory.
Today is the last chance the
frosh will have to brush up on
their passing before meeting the
rooks in the massive Igloo this
weekend. So far, the frosh have
failed to score a win over their
Corvallis brethren in the first two
games of the "little civil war
Led by Lettermen Ted Sarpola,
Matt Pavalunas, and Ford Mullen,
the super-varsity built up a strong
lead in the first two quarters of
the scrimmage, but when Sarpola
ami Pavalunas went out the frosh
started hitting.
By the end of the third quarter
the frosh were leading .'18 to 37,
and it was up to George "Porky"
Andrews to pull the game out of
the fire for the supers.
Paced by Len Card, clever ball
handling frosh forward, and Doug
Caven, the frosh made the going
hard for the frosh stars of last
year in the second half. Poor pass
ing kept the yearlings from hitting
more often.
Don Calbreaith, Bob Deveiell.
Les Thompson, Laverne Van Mar
ter, Burke Austin, Boss Kilborn,
and Dick Whitman were also used
in the scrimmage and will prob
ably see action in tomorrow night's

At 14-14 in Other
Intramural Clash
The Kappas handed the Co-op
their first defeat last night to a
tune of 12-0 in a “guard" game,
after the Thetas had tied up with
the Orides, 14-14, and the Pi Phis
had fallen before the Gamma Phis,
Although the Kappa vs. Co-op,
“C” division clash was kept open
and clean, both teams passed more
than they shot, and missed most of
these tries.
This fast-passing Kappa sextet
led throughout, standing 3-0 at the
end of the first quarter. In the
six minutes of the second quarter,
one basket was made, “Rusty"
Tomlinson's for the Co-op.
Mary Thatcher, Kappa, was high

In a previous match, Linfield
won but one match from Oregon
State. That match was in the
heavyweight class. The Wildcat
matman, Gillis, is heavyweight
champion of the northwest.
Oregon State won six matches
against Washington’s three Friday
night which establishes Oregon as
favorites over the Linfield squad.
Oregon’s Best
Oregon, which has its strongest
mat team this year, will be led in
the attack against the Wildcats by
“Wee” Willie Williams. Williams,
captain of the Ducks, won his last
fight against his Husky opponent
by a decision.

Of 187 Record
With Oregon’s Laddie Gale and
Slim Wintermute head and shoul
ders above the field and going
away, interest in the northern di
vision scoring race, now nearing
the three-quarter post, centers
around the struggle for lower
bracket positions in the coveted
’’Big Ten.”
Wally Johansen, lithe Oregon
guard, was the only victim of the
scoring struggle in the Oregon
State-Idaho series during the first
of the week. Johansen, who held
ninth position prior to the Corval
lis series, was passed by both Ron
Harris of Idaho and Frank Mandic
of the Beavers and pushed down
to 11th.
Harris Gets 13
Harris collected 13 points in the
two games to bring his total to
79, while Mandic gathered 16 to
move into tenth place.
The seven top scorers in the loop
were not affected by the rise of
Mandic and Harris, however. This
“status quo” will not be jeopard
ized until Friday and Saturda;
when Washington plays Washing
ton State and Oregon faces Ore
gon State.
Both Gale and Wintermute an
in no immediate danger of beinj
overhauled. Tall Laddie has 14!
points to his credit, and is only 31
points away from Wally Palm

to set a new high mark, Gale mus

Gale Polishes Eye
Laddie Gale, Oregon’s top scorer,
was also out for a little shooting.
Determined that Wally Palmberg’s
scoring record will not escape him,
tall Lad is doing all he can to im
prove and polish his shooting. Al
though Gale broke the 18-game
record last year, his mark was not
recognized officially because of the
addition of Montana to the confer

I schedule. However, in Coach Hob

In the first 16 games last year,
Gale rang the bell for 193 points,

Oregon State has been a vastly
improved team, since Coach Slats
Gill switched from the “slow stuff”
to the fast break. The Beavers
have won their last three games,
and now loom as a definite threat
to the supremacy of the Ducks.
If the Ducks run their winning
streak to 11 straight by walloping
the Staters, they will be virtually
“in” as far as the championship
race is concerned. A win from the
Staters would leave the Ducks
