    Bearcat Hurler Halts Duck Batters
Tilt Dropped
By Cornell
The game scheduled Monday
between the Wenatchee Chiefs of
the Western International league
and the University of Oregon
nine was canceled.
A telegram from the profes
sional club to Acting Coach Anse
Cornell, disclosed that rainy
weather had not given the players
sufficient time to get in condi
tion, and that the pitchers were
not in shape.
Canceling the game cut the
Webfoots pre-season schedule to
four games, and with the opening
of the Northern Division race
only four days away, Duck possi
bilities are still a question mark.
Acting-coach Anse Cornell will
relinquish the coaching duties to
Hobby Hobson when the Duck
nine opens the season at Corvallis
Ducklings Lose, 9-8
To State Prison Nine
The University of Oregon frosh baseball team found the State
Prison Greys a little too clever on the base tines Saturday, as the
inmate team swiped a close one from the yearlings by a 9 to 8 score.
Going into the last half of the ninth the yearlings were on the long
end of an 8-7 score when the Greys started acting up on the base
lines. A1 Wimer filled the bases on a walk, a wild pitch that hit a
batter, and a single. The tying
run came across when Wimer
walked another man. As
Wimer started his windup to
throw to the batted, Luke Cross
white, inmate pitcher, started in
from third. The batter sensing
the play laid one down and the
ball game was in the pocket.
Farrow Hits Wall
Bob Farrow had a banner day
at the plate, rapping out a homer,
a double and a single in four
trips. “Ozzie” Oswald banged out
four singles in five tries.
Sloshing around on a rather
damp Howe field Monday, the
frosh took it on the chin from
the varsity in an abbreviated
four-inning contest, 8 to 2.
Even with the help of a varsity
battery, Nick Begleries and
Bud Walker, the frosh were
little competition for the Web
Begleries allowed the varsity
seven hits in his four ininngs of
duty. Karterman for the varsity
set the frosh down with four.

For Track
Season Bad
Oregon's scanty, inexperi
enced track squad failed to set
the world afire with the per
formances turned in Saturday
in a time trials running with
the frosh.
The 1941 edition of the varsity
track was described by Hayward
as one of the weakest teams in
his 39-year coaching regime.
Fuhrman Needed
Oregon's ace hurdler, Rolph
Fuhrman, is some 3000 miles
across the Pacific ocean in Plono
lulu with the varsity basketball
itinerants. At that distance he is
not able to give a great deal of
help to the situation.
One faint gleam of sunlight
managed to creep through this
blanket of gloom when Jake
(Flash) Leieht, speedy football
halfback, went through his
initial cinder workout Monday.
This dashing Californian is
credited with running a :9.7
100-yard dash.
Ken Oliphant, another winged
footed gridder, is also expected to
turn out. These additions should
be the zest-giving hypo for the
sprint department which at pres

Willamette Dumps
Webfoots 6-0 to Even
Two-Game Series
Earl Toolson, big Willamette university righthander, blanked Ore
gon’s “murderers’ row” here Saturday, as the Bearoats bunched live
hits in the last two innings for sLv runs and the ball game.
Pete Igoe, who went the distance for the Webfoots, pitched near
perfect ball for seven innings, but two hits combined with a pair
of costly errors in the eighth gave the Bearcats a lead thev never
lost. Ihey picked up four count
ers in the ninth on three bingles
and two more misplays.
Ducks Threaten
The Ducks filled the bases in
the first on a pair of walks and
Berry’s infield single, but Chuck
Clifford struck out to end the
inning. Calvert singled to open
the second stanza and a few min
utes later Whitman drove a sin
gle into left, and again Toolson
clamped down in the pinches and
struck out Tini Smith.
Again in the third frame, the
Ducks put men on bases as
Berry singled through the
pitcher, but was out when Bill
Carney forced him at second.
Clifford then slapped a single
into right sending Carney to
second, but Calvert swung hard
only to drop a slow roller in
front of the plate and was
tossed out at first.
From the third inning on big
Toolson pitched masterful ball
except for Igoe’s single in the
sixth and a pair of walks in the
eighth kept the Webfoots well in
Kolb Injured
Johnny Kolb, star of the Bear
cat infield, broke a small bone in
his ankle and dislocated his foot,
stealing second base in the eighth
Pete Igoe stopped the Wil
lamette hitters cold for seven
innings, allowing but three hits.
But from then on it was a dif
ferent story. Toolson, up first
for the Bearcats in the eighth,
singled to deep short. Daggett
dropped a bunt, sending the big
right hander to second. Then
Buck Berry misplayed a ground
ball, allowing Walker to take
first. Cameron then singled to
right scoring Toolson. Kolb sin
gled sending Walker across the
Richards Homes
In the ninth Jack Richards
slammed a home run into deep
left-center. Robertson walked,
Daggett was safe on Berry’s
fourth effor of the game, and
Walker hit a long triple to the
left. The Bearcats picked up their
last run on Hochstetter's long fly
to left.

Oxman Scores
Tom Oxman, second string Gold
back, punched through a slot in
the varsity forward wall for two
yards to tie the game up. Notice
able for the relief men were Lar

formed a passing combination
that would warm the heart of
any coach. Olsen was pitching
