Duck Hitting Strong
An abundance of hitting power
is possessed by the Webfoots,
Hobson declared this week. His
pitching he describes as “fair,”
and comments favorably on the
fielding defense.
The lineup which Hobson
will employ against the Pilots
today probably will have Bill
Carney in left field, Dick Whit
man in center, and Hank Burns
in right. Infield should stack
up with John Bubalo at first,
Don Kirsch at second, Bob Far
row at shortstop, and Bill Ha
mel at third.
The opening backstop assign
ment will rest between Ted Pilip,
Portland U transfer, and Bill Mc
Kevitt, junior from last year’s
