Ducks Cry Over Spilled Water Outfield Seems Stronger; Pilching Appears Weak; Million Dollar ! Infield Gone By KEN CHRISTIANSON' Water from the heavens spoiled a couple of practices for Oregon’s prospective baseball players and may Keep the boys inside the Igloo or bold them to a batting practice unless the gods do will fair weather. Monday, the day of registration, Co-coaches Anse Cornell and Cece Walden held a short reorganization meeting and after that they took their charges out to Howe field for a little batting practice. Webfoots got their second taste of baseball this term yesterday as they got the feel of the ball in McArthur court. A complete reversal of strength in one of the main features of the Oregons this season, for the out field is the stronger rather than the weaker of the two the outfield pasture and the infield. Last year Oregon had what was termed a million dollar infield while the out field was a bit weaker—although it was strong enough to help bring the northern division pennant back to Duekland after one year’s ab sence. Big Seven Gone The pitching also seeni3 weaker tii tn last year. No one seems to be capable of filling the shoes of Bob Hardy and Bob Creighton who are playing professional ball. Two of the vaunted infield left gaps m the lineup through graduation. Those two were Gale Smith and For 1 Mullen. The other two of the infield turned pro. Both Elmer Mal lory and Wimpy Quinn had more eligibility. Jim Nicholson is gone from the outfield. Hobson’s prospective outfield has a sophomore tinge. Dick Whitman, Bill Carney, and Burke Austin are the second year men while another bet would be Bill White who earned a letter last year as a sophomore. Hobson in East Positions in the infield seem nebulous —nothing is certain. As far as that goes, nothing else is definite until Coach Hobby Hobson returns next Tuesday from the HO A A basketball tourney. Tire turnout thus far numbers four catchers, eight pitchers, fif teen itrfielders, and seven outfield ers Oregon’s first pre-season game comes the day after Hobson re turns from the east next Wednes day against Unfield at Eugene. On April 5 Pacific entertains the Ducks there and the day after that Port lau.i is the host. Softball Entry Deadline Set Play Is Divided Into Five Leagues; Betas Defend Title With the opening date of intra mural softball set for the middle of April, depending upon the weath er, Rollie Dickie, intramural head, announced that all those interested in entering teams must have their entry blanks in by Thursday, March 28 at 5 p.m. Blanks may be secured in the office of the P. E. building. “We may run into difficulty find ing enough diamond room due to the fact that present work by the W PA has done away with some of the space formerly occupied by playing fields, but we will attempt to continue on with the same setup as was used last year,’’ stated Dickie. Last year's schedule was com posed of five leagues with the win ners of each league competing in the playoffs. The Betas won the championship in a close game with the ATOs, and, in doing so, an nexed the all-intramural crown. The tournament will be run off as it was last year with the games scheduled for 4 and 5 in the after noon. A total of 150 points will ire' awarded tdu? team winning the title. Each team must carry 10 men, and will receive 50 points for enter ing.

A full team had been entered in the Hill meet but the boys were not in condition when they returned from their spring vacation, so Hayward decided to pass up this week's meet and concentrate on con ditioning the boys for the Portland university contests to be held in Portland Saturday, April 6. Lose Three Stars Despite the loss of George Var off, Don Barker, and Jim Schriver, star performers from last year's squad, the Oregon team promises to give the northern division teams a stiff battle for championship hon ors. The addition of several promis ing transfers and sophomores to the returning nucleus of lettermen will ease the loss of the 1939 sen iors. Rod Hansen, pole vaulter who was second only to George Varoff, former world record holder, in most meets last year, will return this spring to threaten the marks held by Varoff. Kirm Storli, captain and runner up in the coast meet last year is back gunning for his second divi sion championship in the half mile. Storli breezed through all competi tion in the northern division meets two years ago and is eager to re-; peat his performance. Another standout is Boyd Brown.' four-fingered javelin thrower who1 hurled the spear over 231 feet in the northern division meet last spring which was good enough to beat Bob Peoples, Southern Cal's national title holder. Brown’s mark is second nationally only to Peo 2 FINE PRINTS from each of your good negatives on every 8 exposure roll you send. _ l*™ £ Get quality ®n y pictures ana prompt service.
