The Duck varsity grid squad resumed activity last night after a
three-day rest due to inclement weather and the Easter holiday. The
short vacation seemed to have done the team more good than harm,

Winner Hurls 3-Hit
Ball; Kirsch Clubs
By LEE FLATBERG
Sports Editor, Daily Emerald
Oregon’s '42 baseball edition came to life in the late in*,
nings yesterday on Howe field, unleashed its war clubs, and
sent Linfield’s Wildcats staggering home on the short end
of a 13 to 2 score. The Webfoots move to Pacific tomorrow
to play the Badger nine.
It was a great day for the Duck pitching staff, long the
brunt of skeptics, as it bowed
gracefully, thumbed its nose at
the skeptics, and set the Linfield
nine down with four scattered
hits. A1 Wimer took care of the
pitching scores for eight full
frames and limited the Linfield
boys to three measly hits. Ore
gon's ever-present sluggers took
over from here, blasted out 10
hits and a “baker's dozen” worth
Kirsch Heads Parade
Don Kirsch was the big gun
in the Oregon barrage. He laced
out three singles and a triple in
six trips to the plate. He plas
tered another far out into left
field but a fielder got his glove
on it and while Kirsch got four
bags on the swat, it went as an
The game bore some sem
blance to a contest for five inn
ings. Jim Partlow, Linfield
pitcher, had the Ducks fairly
well in hand up to the fifth with
four runs while his teammates
had collected one. Wimer, serv
ing up a slow, but very tricky
southpaw slant, had the situa
tion well in hand for Oregon.
Things erupted in the bot
tom half of the sixth. Kirsch
banged his “error” home run
for number one. Dick Whitman
reached first on an error, stole
second, moved to third on John
Bubalo’s single. Then Partlow
balked and Whitman scored and
Boob moved to third; to score a
second later when Linfield’s
catcher dropped an infield fly.
Oregon kept right on in the
seventh. Bill McKevitt and Kirsch
singled in order. Linfield’s left
fielder lost Whitman’s drive in
the sun and two more runs fil
tered across. The third baseman
Nancy Lewis *
booted one to let Whitman score
number three of the inning.
To put a clincher on the affair
the Ducks pushed three more
across in the eighth. McKevitt got
life on a walk, was sacrificed
down by Filip’s bunt and came
home on Kirsch’s fourth hit. Ike
Brown, in for Hamel, socked a
single to center, and Whitman"^”
walked’. A long fly out by Bubalo
brought Kirsch across and a
screaming single by Bill Carney
seconds later brought Brown in
with the final tally.
The Wildcats got their first
score in the fourth without ben
efit of a hit. An error, a past
ball, and a sacrifice added up
to a score. They added the final
one in the seventh with an er
ror and a long triple by
Oregon got two in the first
on an error, a wajk, and a dou
ble by Carney. Two more came^
in the fourth on Kirsch’s single,
a walk, and a long single by

i Susie Mermaids Ready S
1 To Swim Sherry Ross I
The Susan Campbell swimming
team were accused by the Sherry
Ross mermen of trying to “welch"
on their swimming meet this com
ing Thursday night, and Susie
girls arose to a woman behind
their mermaids to declare that
they would be there to uphold
the honor of the female sex in the
pool. The meet, therefore, will be
held Thursday evening at 5 p.m.
in the Gerlinger pool. Both girls
and fellows are invited to attend.
From Johnny Kahananui to
F. Miles (MJO) Mayfield to
even Joe (J. Spencer) Miller
the Uossnnn are ready. They’ve
been working out lately in some
of the local tanks—Saturday
night a big- time trial was held
at the Stone-Hut. Bud Salinar
do looked great. He should be
a sensation in the diving events.
Franklin uinn, former San
Francisco swim are, is all set
for the 40-yard breast stroke.
Betty Joe Daniels may be re
cruited to swim against him.
Bob Simmons will be counted
on to take points in the crawl
events for the Miller mermen.
Yes, Sherry Ross is ready (as
they ever will be).
Susie Campbell has its cham
pionship team of last term intact*""
and will probably go into the
meet 2 to 1 favorites. Margaret
Lesher will definitely be on hand
to attempt to crack her own ''
COAST records in the crawl and
and backstroke. Pat Carson is
the usual tower of strength in
the relay and distance events and
will be ably abetted by Barbara
Captain Jeanette (don’t men
tion my name) Neilson will per
form from the LOW diving board,
and the competition between her
and Barfin' Bud Salinardo is ex
pected to make it the finest event
of the evening. All in all, the en
tire meet shapes up to be a close
affair, although the Susie aqua
After the meet, to prove that
there is no hard feelings, both
squads will eat their dinner to
