Every Oregon “pigger” has
known that uneasy and hopeless
feeling that comes about 10:29
when he is suddenly aware that
he has about five blocks and one
minute to get his date in on time.
His condition fast approaches
that of panic.
So it goes with swimmers,
avers Mike Hoyman, varsity and
freshman swimming mentor, only
in a different sense. Many times
a swimmer, no matter how good
he is, at the sight of a stop-watch,
literally goes to pieces. He loses
control of his speed and form and
does just about everything he
was taught not to do.
“One of the purposes of early
season training,” says Mike, “is
to overcome these stop-watch
panics so that by the time the
regular season rolls around every
one will float along with the
greatest of ease as though there
never was a stop-watch made.”

The California Bears received
still another blow to their title
hopes, when their star halfback,
Jim Jurkovich, was barred from
further participation in football

Washington State’s 13 to 6 vic
tory last Saturday, Jurkovich
was also “picked” for the first
time this year, but not for the
first time in his grid career. La9t

quite frequently carried out of

Following his latest injury, a
