    Oregon State Nine Nicks Ducks, 4-3
Clayton Shaw Flings
Five-Hit Ball for OSC
Four runs in a wild first inning* was enough to even the
series as Oregon State’s Beavers bounced a determined Web
foot nine on Howe field Saturday, 4 to 3.
With Clayton Shaw stopping Oregon's “murderers’ row’’
on five hits and with perfect support from his Orange team
mates after a four-error first inning when the Ducks scored
three unearned runs, the Staters displayed fine defensive
Vifl.sphfl.il. ----
Nick "Busher” Begleries, start
ing his first conference encounter,
got off to a shaky start, but after
the first frame allowed only two
Durdan Hits
Don Durdan, Oregon State left
fielder, greeted Begleries with a
sharp single into right. Ted Cap

Norm Peters walked, then
Len Younee hit a triple against
the bank in right field sending
them across the plate. Younee
scored a few plays later when
Don Kirsch misplayed a ground
The Ducks came back with
three runs without a base blow in
their half of the first to end the
Circus Catch
Doug Pederson, Beaver center
fielder, saved the one run lead
with a bare hand catch of Chuck
Clifford’s home run labeled hit in
the fifth.
Two defensive plays by the
Webfoots brought the fans to
their feet. Kirsch went far to
his left to make a diving stop
of a hard hit ground ball to
catch Capka at first. The other
came with the bases loaded and
two out in the ninth, when Bill
Carney picked off a fly ball
on his shoetops.
Fans were treated to an un
scheduled attraction, when Um
pire Spec Burke called Whitman
out at first, and a post-game
mixup started. With words flying
fast among Burke, Clifford, Whit
man and Coach Hobby Hobson.
Fisticuffs ensued and in the melee
Burke was knocked to the
