Sports Publicity Man Bruce
Hamby was in a quandary recent
ly after collecting a poll of all
opponent choices for the season by
members of Oregon’s national
championship basketball squad.
You see, Bruce got one all-star
tabulation which road: Forwards,
Laddie Gale and John Dick; ren
ter, Slim Wintermute; Guards,
Wally Johansen and Bobby Anet.
The worried Mr. Hamby set out
t.o find out who was joking and to
get the culprit’s real all-opponent
choice. It turned out to be Earl
Sandness, sophomore Astorian, who
was a reserve for Coach Hobson.
But Fdarl wasn’t joking about his
choice, he really meant it. His
leasoning went about like this:
I’ve played against those five in
practice all year. Gosh, they’re the
toughest I've played against.

Butch Morse, University of Ore
gon’s all-American end of not so
many seasons ago, now in profes
sional football, recently told the
press of a University of Pittsburgh
athlete who claimed to have taken
a “cut” when he went from col
lege football to the pro game, but
that little joke was a bit of irony
to University of Idaho.
Idaho last fall had ils most suc
cessful season in games won and
lost in 11 seasons yet went ap
proximately $3200 in the “red.”
Sports (Editor Bill McGowan, of
the Idaho Argonaut, pretty well
summarized it when he wrote,
“Little left there to split with the
players.” Out of this week’s meet
ing of the athletic board came of
ficial word that Oregon's 1988
football season had been a loser,
too, which might shock some of
the railbirds. Anse Cornell, the
business-minded athletic manager,
offered a pretty sound reason last
fall why the season couldn’t “he
a very moneyed one.” The reason:
Oregon didn’t play any games in
Los Angeles during the 1988 cam
paign, and that’s where the north
west teams do make money. Win
or lose they’re a eincli to draw at
least 25,000 in Los Angeles for
any kind of a game, and such a
turnout in Eugene, Corvallis, Port
land, Pullman, Moscow, or Seattle
. is too rare to even look forward

Webfoots; Both Clubs Get Five Hits;
G. Smith, Mullen Hit Extra Basers
By ELBERT HAWKINS
The Webfoot baseballers and Portland university each col
lected five hits yesterday but Father Lane’s Pilots booted and
foozled the ball all over Howe field and handed Oregon a 12 to 2
The jittery Portlanders chalked up exactly nine miscues for
eight innings in the field, five of them by Third Baseman An
duiza who handled the ball only six times. His only perfect play
was a catch of Gale Smith’s fly in the fifth inning.
Jack Jasper, the sunshine hoy
from California, southpawed eight
innings on the mound for Oregon,
yielding only two runs on Port
land’s five hits. A1 Linn pitched

It went like this: Lead-off hitter
Tommy Cox got life when Second
Sacker Pete Peterson dropped his
pop fly. Then An luiaa, the unlucky
Pilot third baseman, tossed one
away on Jack Shimshak’s hit, and
the two Webfoots pulled up at sec
ond aid third. Ford Mull.v rolled
one down to second base and on
a fielder’s choice Peterson threw
iale to the plate, Cox scoring and
Shimshak pulling up at laird.
Busher Smith, Oregon's hard
hitting first baseman, lifted a high
sacrifice fly into left field to drive
Shimshak home. Then came Wimpy
Quinn’s lone hit of the game which
drove Mullen across the plate.
This made it three runs for the
inning with only one m?n out. An
duiza complied by booting succes
sive hits by Elmer Mallory and
Jimmie Nicholson, and Catcher
Philip helped out with a fizzle to
make Portland’s miseries total five
for the inning.
Gale Smith smacked out one of
the game's two extra basers in
the third inning with Cox on base,
his line drive breezing by Curran
in left field for a home run.

Frosh to Play
Fourteen games remain on the
Duckling baseball schedule and an
imposing array of talented clubs
will be met during the season.
Eight of the fourteen games will
be played on foreign grounds.
Foremost among the opposing
clubs to be faced are the Oregon
State rooks. The first clash be
tween the Rooks and the Frosh
will take place at Corvallis, Friday,
May 12. Judging by pre-season
records these two teams are even
ly matched and, as always, there
will be fireworks aplenty when
these rivals meet.
Three of the best high school
clubs in the state—Lincoln and
Jefferson of Portland and Wood
burn—are on the Duckling sched
ule. Postoffice Pharmacy, winner
of the Northwest Junior Legion
championship last season, was
composed mostly of Lincoln high
players. Jefferson, Portland inter
scholastic champions last year,
have already defeated the frosh,
but John Warren’s men have their
eyes set on revenge. Woodburn
was undefeated in high school
competition last year and is con
sidered to be equally strong this

MacDonald Betters Record
Jerry MacDonald, the Kappa Sig
swimmer who makes a habit of
breaking records, repeated his us
ual tactics again yesterday by
swimming the 40-yard free style
event in 19 seconds flat to better
the coast record by one-fifth of a
second. MacDonald's performance
of yesterday in this event was a
repetition of one earlier this week
when he bettered the coast rec
ord in the 40-yard free style by
even a greater margin, swimming
the 40 yards in 18.2 seconds.
With the score tied at 21-all, a
victory in the last event, the 120
yard free style relay, gave Kappa
Sigma its win over the Yeomen.
The winning team in this event
was composed of Andrus and Lans
ing who teamed with MacDonald.
Sigma Chi had little difficulty
downing Phi Kappa Psi. The Phi
Psis won the last event but fell
short of the winner’s 28 points.
Yesterday’s results were as fol

Divot Opener Will
Be Played Today
At Country Club
By MILTON LEVY
University of Oregon's varsity golf squad will meet the Washington
Huskies, last year’s Northwest conference golf champs, in the first
golf match of the season for Oregon on the Eugene country club course
This is one of the season's big matches as the Huskies, defending
champs, are the team to beat. The conference title is decided by
playoffs, which will be held in Eu
gene this year, and if the Ducks
make a good showing today
against the Huskies they will stand
a good chance of getting back the
championship which they lost last
year when the teams had their
playoffs in Idaho.
Golden Regains Position
Shelby Golden will play in the
No. 1 position for the Ducks. Gol
den was upset during the week by
Fred Davis, No. 2 man, one up.
Friday, Golden challenged Davis
and got his top berth back by de
feating Davis 4 and 2.
The other members of the team
were able to keep their same posi
tions. Benny Hughes successfully
defended his fifth position in a
challenge match with Cliff Smith.
After the finish of the challenge
matches this week the first six
men remained in the same posi
tions that they had after the quali
Davis will play as No. 2 man.
Bill Watson will be No. 3, Doc
Near No. 4, Benny Hughes No. 5,
and Cliff Smith as No. 6.
The team has been playing a lot
of golf this week and they have
gotten kinks out of their system
that bothered them during the
first week. All the six men are ex
pected to be shooting around par
and possibly under.

bringing wide end over narrow end
and up through opening at collar.
Smooth out the preliminary knot.

loop—loosely—and smooth out again.
Keeping the knot smooth is important.
Now make a groove lengthwise in the
* wide end by pinching the sides to

the tie tight—forms a dimple beneath
knot. Arrow Ties, because of their rich
fabrics, achieve this drape easily.
