By LEE FLATBERG
The bombarding huts of the freshman baseball team lashed out
hungrily in the late innings of their game with Sweet Home Tuesday
to shove over five runs and put the game in the bag by a 9 to 5 count.
While the spectators were taking that seventh inning stretch, the
frosh unlimbered their bats and punched across five runs to sew

Oregon will be on an avenging party when they hit the road to the

by the Huskies, 77 to 54. Each club claimed seven first, but Wash

Hec Edmundson's Huskies are
reputed to be a handful for any
outfit. Recent time trials held in
the Seattle camp are indicative
of this power.
Huskies Have Stars
Kjell Qvale, brilliant Husky
sprinter, marked up a time of
:09.9 in the hundred-yard dash,
but Hayward heard that he has
turned in a much faster record.
Last year Qvale clipped off the
century in :09.7, while he can
also step over the 220-yard dis
tance in short order.
One of Edmundson’s sopho
more stars, Bob Smith, was
clocked in the 220-yard dash at
:21.5, while Two-miler Ed
Brinkley completed his dis
tance in 9:55.6.
The other Husky times were
also above par, though Hayward
felt that they were probably
“padded” in the usual way. all
times being given a bit slower
than actually run.
Letterman Ray Dickson turned
out last week and is expected to
bolster considerably both the
broad jump and hurdles depart
ments. Last year Dickson ran
both the high and low sticks.
