Keith Bannister may be tlie No. 4 pitcher on the Oregon
pitching .staff. He knows how to pitch, although his control
po far has been a.s .shaky as a maple leaf in a wind storm
Bannister is one of those remarkable people who, determined
to finish his school, marries and works to put his wife and him
Bannister had a cumulative GPA of better than honor
roll grades last year besides working extensively to go to
school. This year his grades are near the 3 point mark—all
this in addition to working to fill two mouths with food.
To top this off he decides to turn his hand to pitching.
He tossed baseballs for Roseburg in Junior Legion play,
Given a week or two to perfect his control and he may
be pressing Pete Igoe, Nick Begleries, or Bob Rieder, the
top three Duck hurlers.
it's remarkable the game that Begleries played Saturday
against Oregon State. True, he let four hits slip over his head
in the .first inning, but for the next eight frames, he held the
enemy to two blows. Consider that the game was Begleries
first of the entire season. (Rain hampered workouts in early
season to such an extent that Begleries never pitched a full
game of ball.) He was seared in the first inning, but lie settled
down after his weak start and threw ball like a veteran.
Oregon State's Surprise Package
Golf followers were no more surprised than the Oregon
golfers Saturday when Oregon State’s divoteers walked off
Corvallis country club course with the dual match locked up
in their pockets, 1G to 11. Here on one hand we have the
Wobfoots who set the high-flying ’Washington Huskies down
in fine style last week. Visions of northern division golf pen
nants came to the Ducks’ heads. Then came tlie Beaver
Dick Hanen, Shelby Golden, Bob Duden, Captain Bob
Engelke, Don Cawley, and Chet Keller feel, however, that
Orgeon State will fade from the race in the division play
off. The race will be strictly two-team, Oregon and Wash
ington, and the best four-man team will grab the flag.
Golden says, ‘‘Oregon State was playing over their heads.”
Spring Football—Minus Many
Bpring football progresses into the finals, but without most
of the key men. Bill lleguer, Curt Meeliam. Chuck Elliott,
«hikf "Flash" Leicht, Ken Oliphaut and a couple of other
players frisk about under Colonel Bill Hayward. Tony Crish
has graduated into baseball, Tom Oxnian is out for frosh
baseball. But still a remnant of the gridmen drill —crack
shoulders and bump heads—in the warm spring weather with
an eye peeled toward the coining season.
Frank Boyd, ace left halfback, left the field Monday
afternoon holding- his right wrist. He was rushed to the
nearest X-ray to take a picture, but fortunately no fracture
showed. Boyd turned his wrist under him as he fell—it
just folded on him—and it was feared that he would be
out for the remaining few days of spring’ practice. It’s
okeli now and Trainer Bob Officer thinks it is merely
Eight more days of practice remain. Two Saturday scrim

Oregon’s “regular" Duck baseballers aren’t kidding about this
diamond game, and they didn’t waste any time hopping all over Nick
Begleries, Pete Igoe, and Keith Bannister in an intersquad encounter
No one knew what the actual score was but the first string outfit
had more runs than >011 could count on your two hands, while Bob

trouble picking up the fast
grounders around third base, was
shifted into the backstopping and

gap in right field.

anemic look after the two Ore
