Coach Anse Cornell and an 18-man squad leave today for a three
game schedule in Portland and Forest Grove. Today the Ducks play
a double-header with Pacific at Forest Grove and move on tomorrow

In commenting on the chances of winning over the smaller schools,
"Cornell said, "We have the hitting power if our pitchers hold up." He

Open to All
Anyone interested in tennis or
golf tournaments may sign up in
the entrance to the gym before
Saturday noon. Elmer Olsen of
the intramural department an
nounced yesterday.
The original deadline for en
tering the tournaments was
today but so few had signed
that the opportunity was
extended. The tournaments will
be called off unless at least ten
sign for each, Olsen said.
The intramural department in
vites all who are interested to
enter the golf singles and dou
bles and the tennis singles and
doubles. Any student is eligible

plans to start Bob Kiecier in tne
first Pacific tangle and Pete Igoe
in the. second. Nick Begleries will
top the mound against Portland
university. Carlo Apa and Mon
roe Karterman will be in the bull
pen waiting the nod.
Oregon Hitting
Last Tuesday the Duck nine
stretched three hits into as many
runs and held the Pacific squad
to three hits and no runs on Howe
field. The Badgers slapped three
of Begleries’ pitches across the
soggy diamond.
It was hardly the kind of wea
ther even for Ducks to play base
ball, however, and the game was
called off. This scant preview of
the respective teams hints that
the Oregon fielding can give a
substantial backing for the man
on the mound.
These five pitchers will be
feeding their specialties down
the groove to Bill Calvert, Jim
Rathbun, and Bud Walker, tak
ing turns behind the plate. If
they don’t get too much inter
ference from the northern slug
gers, the Duck batsmen can
well be expected to put pepper
on the pill.
Poor practice conditions and
sore pitching arms have put gum
in the Duck feathers but sound
hitting power and experienced
fielding should comb it out today
and tomorrow.
The traveling squad includes:
pitchers—C arlo Apa, Nick Beb
pitchers—Carlo Apa, Nick Beg
and Monroe Karterman; catch
ers—Bill Calvert, Jim Rathbun,
ana Bud Walker; infielders —
Chuck Clifford, Tini Smith,
Burke Austin, Jack Shimshak,
Bill Hamel, and Buck Berry;
outfielders—Hank Burns, John
Bubalo, Bill Carney, and Cap
tain Dick Whitman.
Attention coed golfers. To
day is the last day to sign up
for the annual spring golf
tournament. See your WAA

Steers Takes Crack
At Record Tonight
Tonight Les Steers takes a fling at the world high jump record.
He jumps in Portland during the annual Hill Military academy relays.
Coach Bill Hayward, Steers, and the latter’s jumping mate, Bill
Beifuss, left Eugene for Portland yesterday.
Steers has already unofficially erased the (5 feet O’j, inch indoor
mark held by Mel Walker and Ed Burke, and has done the same for
the 6 feet 93± outdoor world mark
hung up in 1936 by Cornelius
Johnson and Dave Albritton. Tak
ing off in the Igloo between
halves of a recent conference
basketball game, the prodigious
Webfoot jumper did near seven
feet “off the record.”
Record in Seattle
In Seattle last week he got up
to 6 feet 73s until a bruised heel
forced him to retire, that mark
was good enough for a new pavil
ion record. In his record try to
night, Steers will be wearing an
aluminum brace perfected by
Hayward to protect the former’s
sore feet.
Other members of the Web
foot track team take it easy
today after abbreviated work
* outs yesterday, the first decent
day for rehearsals in three.
Saturday, cindermen from the
University of Portland trot into
Eugene to apply a preconfer
ence test to the Ducks.
