Ducks Drop First
Tou can’t win ’em all. When
you're up against a tough
chucker, kick the ball around a
bit, and don’t have the share of
breaks coming your way, you
car. easily drop one.
Well, the Ducks did just that.
They ran into their first stone
wait yesterday and bowed before
the very gifted twirling arm of
Vince Pesky, 6 to 4, to put a
damper on an otherwise perfect
baseball day for Duck fans who
had turned out to absorb Old
Sol's vitamized rays.
It was the first reversal in
seven starts for Oregon who
failed to give Losing Pitcher Bob
Rieder anything but ragged sup
port afield, The usually dependa
ble infield booted away seven
plays to keep Rieder continually
in hot water.”
Meanwhile young Pesky, al
though giving up 10 safeties, had
spaced the Ducks’ blows so that
not more than two were bunched
in any one frame.
Dick Whitman provided the
first Duck score in the initial
round when he singled, stole sec
one, and scored as Teammate
Job.: ny Bu'oalo drove a pitch to
Portland got one back in the
third when Pesky pounded out a
single to left, was sacrificed to
second by Chilian, took third on
a fielder’s choice, and came across
on Paul O’Toole's blow to left.
Matty Mathews’ tenacious out
fit pecked away at Rieder for
another score in the fifth on sin
gles by CuUan and O'Toole again.
Ducks (let One
The last half of the round it
was Oregon's turn again. Kirsch
belted a double to left, took third
on an error in left field, and was
pushed across by Hamel's long
fly to center.
Oregon had things its own way
for the last time in the sixth af
ter they tallied twice. Carney
powdered a single to right cen
ter. Shortstop Farrow got life on
a fielder’s choice and both were
cleaned from the sacks when
Dick Burns clouted a single to
Calm Before Storm
Pesky got one back for the Pi
lots in the seventh on a single,
wild pitch, and an error by Rie
der which was a mild forecast of
what was to come. In the eighth
the Pilots struck with sudden and
lightning fury and when the
smoke cleared away three runs —
which decided the game — were
across. O'Toole, smashing out the
third hit of the day, tripled to
left center. Uhle was passed to
get at McWiggin who grounded
out, O’Toole coming in with the
tying marker. Friedhoff was safe
on another fielder’s choice. Uhle
scored on Carney’s error and
Friedhoff registered the final Pi
lot point a moment later when
Pesky hit for the third time.
An Oregon rally in the last of
the ninth was frustrated although
Burns and Kirsch both got life.

Ducks Try Again
Rudely jolted into the loss col

Ducks get a chance to apply
salve to their wounds when they
take on Willamette in a double

JIMMY NEWQUIST . . .
. . . the Camas, Washington, hack
field bomber is working out in
spring football'. Jimmy flips an
accurate pass, runs and kicks.
A “rock ’em” and “sock ’em”
scrimmage is planned for today’s
pigskin turnout. With almost
three weeks of conditioning and
the learning of new plays under
their belts, “Tex" Oliver, varsity
football coach, plans to send his
entire squad through its toughest
The squad teams have shown
considerable improvement in the
last few weeks. The white team,
containing most of last year’s vet
erans is beginning to look “coor
dinated” as they run through new
and old plays. “Rainbow" Roblin
and “Omar" Newquist are work
ing well together at their left
and quarterback spots. The line
is well balanced and is working
hard at perfecting timing of
blocks and the many other things
a lineman has to think of in a

form, is the “Dream Green team.’’
These boys are composed of the
hopeful freshman and the untried
sophomores. The Green backfield
is fast, shifty, and has a “com

Reynolds. frosh back, are fitting
into the “Oliver Twist" very well.
Bob Morrison, Clyde Lee, Jack
Willis, alternate between the twro
teams and are showing a good
brand of football.
The Yellow team, coached by
Vaughn Corley, has been giving
the rest of the squad something
to talk about. These boys, veho
are learning football through the
mistakes of others, have been
improving rapidly and they are
ready to give the other teams a
good hard battle this afternoon.
Frosh ‘9’ Falls
They were a real, honest-to
goodness high school team, hut
those Franklin Quakers looked
more like a bunch of pros yes
terday at Howe field. In fact both
Franklin and the Oregon Frosh
handled themselves like veter
ans, with the Portland team ek
ing out a well-earned 3 to 1 vic
tory over the Ducklings, in a
well-played ball game.
Whitey Lokan of the Frosh and
big Jim Hess each pitched mas
terful ball. Lokan struck out 13
men and allowed only 6 bingles.
Hess fanned 8 and was touched
for 7 safeties.
The game was deadlocked with
no runs until the eighth inning,
when all runs were scored. With
one out, Lokan walked Hess and
Bob Tate. They moved up to sec
ond and third on Murphy’s sacri
fice, and scored on a single by
Fontaine. The third Quaker run
was added when Fontaine scored
on Bowen’s base knock. ^
Oregon pushed over its lone
tally when John Gitzen singled,
stole second, and scored on Aden's
single. Gitzen of the freshmen
and Tate of Franklin each gar
nered three hits to divide batting
Superb fielding featured the
contest, with only one error, that
being charged against the Duck
lings. Each team had scoring
chances, but fine defensive work
cut these off.
The game was the first of the
season for John Warren’s Duck
lings. They take the field again
this morning when they meet Al
