Co-Sports Editor, Oregon Emerald
The weather finally gave Oregon’s varsity baseball players
a break yesterday, and they responded with a pretty fair exhi
bition of diamond artistry, in handing Portland university’s
Pilots a 7 to 2 setback on Howe field.
All in all it really was a fine baseball day. Warm sunshine
kept the tossers happy in spite of slippery footing and damp
turf; a fair-sized crowd was on hand; and even the peanut and
hot-dog vendors, welcome personages at any game, were around.
At the Oregon - Lmfield contest
they were sadly not in evidence.
Coach Hobby’s Webfoots, for
their part, found their batting eyes
in the eighth inning, crashing out
five-blows and sending six runners
across home plate. In the first sev
en frames, it was horse and horse
with each team posting only one

Portland - Box 3573 - • Oeagan
the Webfoot blows were bunched
more effectively.
Big Jack (Sunshine) Jasper,
southpaw of last year’s team,
hurled the first five innings for
the Ducks, scattering five blows
and allowing only one run. The tall
moundsman who came to Oregon
from California threw few curves
but whiffed six Pilots during his
stay on the hill.
Jasper was not the winning
pitcher, however. The win was
credited to Virgil Haynes, a new
discovery of Coach Hobson’s, who
took over at the beginning of the
sixth inning with the score one-all
and handcuffed the visitors the rest
of the way. The only run scored
off Haynes, a right-hander from
Southern Oregon College of Edu
cation, was tallied in the final
frame, after the Webfoots had
piled up a commanding lead.
Whitman Slugs
Slugging star of the day was
Dick Whitman, sophomore outfield
er, but it was _ the bat of Cece1
Walden which climaxed the big
eighth inning rally. In the seventh
frame, “Ox” Walden clubbed the!
ball to deep left-center but man-1
aged to make it only to second
base. He came up again in the
eighth with Ducks on every bag,
and. to the amazement of fans,
duplicated his blow of the pre
vious inning:, scoring all three base
runners. This time, however, big
Cece lumbered clear around to
third to get credit for a well
earned triple.
Whitman clubbed out four blows
in four times at the plate. Three of
his blows were singles, and one
was a long triple.
Jack Shaw, a pitcher of the
Junk Walters-Cowboy Ed Tomlin
type, went the route for Portland’s
Pilots. A versatile athlete, Shaw
can catch and pitch almost equally
well, although he is more at home
behind the plate. Except for the
aforementioned eighth inning lapse,
Shaw hurled masterful ball. He
also batted in the cleanup position.
Whitey Austin Works
Tall A1 Korhonen, Pilot lgft
fielder, gave Oregon’s flychaser
Whitey Austin quite a workout.
Korhonen pounded out four hits in
five trips with the willow, and
three of these, two doubles and a
triple, and a long fly ball which
Austin caught were all clubbed to
deep left field.
Both the Webfoots and Pilots
managed to push across one run
in the fourth inning. Portland
scored first when Korhonen tripled
and came in on Shaw’s fly to Ore
gon's Bill Carney in right field.
Back came the Ducks in their
half of the inning to knot the
count. Whitman singled, Carney
walked, and both advanced when
Tommy Cox, batting for Lloyd
Beggs, laid down a sacrifice bunt
which Catcher Roy Harrington of
Portland mishandled.
Harrington’s bobble gave life to
Cox and filled the bases. Right
here occurred one of the wildest
plays of the game. Arba Ager
slammed a hot one to the short
stop, Eddie Curran, who whipped
the ball to the catcher to cut off
Whitman at the plate. Catcher
Harrington then fired to second
in an attempt to catch the flying
Cox, Carney scoring in the mean
time. Carney was safe, but Port
land did manage to get Cox out
at the plate.
Billy Calvert opened the eighth
inning with a rap to short which
was muffed. Whitman singled, but
Carney’s attempted sacrifice went
wrong when the alert Roy Har
rington threw to third to force

Head for North
To Face Huskies
Captain-Coach Doc
Near to Play Top
Position on Team
Oregon's title defending golf
team left for Seattle this morning
to meet the University of Wash
ington Huskies Saturday in the
first conference match for this
year’s Duck aggregation.
Three lettermen made the trip,
and three newcomers on the team
will get their first swing at con
ference golf competition. The
match will be a 36-hole contest,
with singles and doubles. In the
past, visiting teams at the Univer
sity of Washington have been
forced to play singles in the morn
ing and the doubles in the after
noon. This has always made the
match a very tough affair for the
visiting team as new members who
have never played on the course
must play their best golf and play
it for the first time on the course.
The singles matches count twice
as much as the doubles.
Near Top Man
Playing in the No. 1 position
will be Captain-coach Doc Near.
Near shot a sub par 287 last week
in the qualifying rounds. Benny
Hughes, northern division medalist,
will play in the second position.
Rich Werschkul, the third return
ing letterman, will play in the third
Bob Engelke will be in the fourth
position. Engelke qualified in the
second position’but has been shift
ed as this is his first conference
match. Don Cawley, member of
last year’s frosh team, will be No. 5
Chuck Phipps defeated Chet Kel
ler 2 and 1 to win the sitxh posi
tion for this match.
Harry Milne has been appointed
as senior golf manager.
