Tony Crish
Judged Best
In Beard Race
Soph Whiskerino
Judiciary 'Splits
Hair' in Decision
Tony Crish, the man with a
beard so tough a match can be
lit by scratching across it, won
and “lost” a battle last night.
Crish won the Soph Whisker
ino beard contest, displaying a
growth surpassing that of any
other second-year man. He lost
in the aftermath—the whisker
crop which was responsible for
his unanimous choice when he
was publicly shaved by Barber
Charlie Elliott.
Judges Russ Morgan, orches
tra leader, and Elliott formed a
winning combination that had to
split few hairs to decide the win
ner from the seven competing
“Runners-up” to Crish wrere
Maury Burgess, Jim Bronson,
Bud McDowell, Nick Kovtyno
vich, Don Holst, and Bill Dunlap.
The winner received' a gold-let
tered shaving mug, on which were
inscribed the words: “Sophomore
Whiskerino Champion, Class of
Nomination and judging of the
beards was highlight of the Soph
Whiskerino dance, wrhich feat
ured the music of Russ Morgan.
The candidates were nominated
from the floor through Contest
Chairman Jeff Kitchen, who
served as spokesman.

Stellar Position in UO Hitting Field
OREGON STATE COLLEGE, April 18—Oregon State’*
grand and glorious opening “Baseball Day’’ festivities took a
dour cast this afternoon as Oregon's murderous nine landed
on Glenn Elliott's pitches like a flock of kids on Christman
packages. Final score: Oregon 8, Oregon State 6.
Led by John Bubalo and Captain Dick Whitman, the Oregon
sluggers lofted Elliott's offerings into the field for 12 hit*.
Every one of Oregon's eight runs was earned, which kicked
Elliott's earned run average in
the pants terrifically—a blow
from which it won't soon re
Pete Igoe won the game for
Oregon so far as pitching goes.
Igoe replaced the Webfoot start
er, Bob Rieder, in the last third
of the third inning and allowed
seven hits, including a double.
Rieder allowed four of Oregon
State's hits in his time on the
mound. He was pitching good
ball with near-perfect control
when three or four of the pitch
es came winging into the plate
looking like basketballs. Two of
them went back out for home
Peters Stars
Outfielder Norm Peters was
the big- gun for the Beaver hit
ters. He cracked out three hits
in five trips to the plate—one was
a home run. Oregon's Bubalo and
Whitman smacked out similar
averages. Erwin McRae, Beaver
second-sacker, banged out two
hits in five. Paul Johnston, OSC
shortstop, bagged two for four.
Four sophomores glittered in
the Oregon lineup: Bubalo. First
