According' to Tuckwiler, there
is more interest in track in Cali

reasons for the enthusiasm, he
explained, is because there is a
longer season in the south and
the schools can offer more schol

quarter mile event the best. He
was anchor man on the relay
team last year.
Having run under four coaches,
and observed many others, Tuck
thinks that Hayward is as good
as they come. He believes that
he has learned more from Colo

other coach. Says Tuck, "I think
Bill is tops."
Tuckwiler is a native Orego

attending Hill Military acad

there. He is a journalism major,
but will be working for Uncle

listed in V-7, and will complete

fielding of the year.
Ducks Grab Lead
The Ducks grabbed a lead in
the bottom half of the second
when Dick Whitman’s sharp drive
to left field evaded the fielder
and rolled to the bank to go as
a home run.
They heaped three more runs
on in the fourth with one hit
arid some poor playing by Pa
cific. Don Kirsch reached first
on an error by the shortstop,
then advanced to second when
Whitman was hit by' a pitched
bali. The second baseman boot

moved to second. Carney moved

ball and then Johnny Bubalo

Kirsch stepped up and lashed out

it over the left-center field bank.
Farrow clouted a long double over

Sandgren, who started for
the Ducks, left the mound in
the sixth for Wimer, after set
ting the Badgers down for six
innings with four hits. He had
beautiful support. In the fourth
he got in a hole with men on
first and tlRrd and none gone.
A pitchout and quick throw
erased one runner and “Sandy”
pulled out of the hole. Again in

spot but again a neat bit of
fielding saved him. It was a
