ND Pennant Chase Opens
Pi Kaps Win
By JOE MILLER
The usual Oregon weather
again spotlighted the fourth day
of IM softball competition. The
Pi Kaps and Awful Awfuls stayed
on top of their leagues; the SAEs
and Alpha hall grabbed their
opening wins, and the Phi Delts
came back with a victory.
The Pi Kaps ran into rouch
competition fro irithe Sigma
Chis, but they rallied in the late
innings to scrape out an 8 to V
victory. Their liurler, Art Sprick.
was belted for four runs in the
opening frame, but he settled
down as the game continued and
scattered their runs.
Hal Eloyd and Jack Turpin
led the Sig attack, while Bob
Harrison slapped two doubles
and Tom Boblin a triple and
single to bat in live 1’ilv.V

The SAEs blasted Kirkwood

when the final man was finally
out the final score was 12 to 0.
T he SAEs were held scoreless un
til the fourth frame when they
erupted with eight runs, scored on
some daredevil baserunning. The
Kirks went -ill to pieces, and the
Sig Alphs counted four more in
the next to ice the game away.
Every man in the SAE batting
order got at least one safe knock,
while the best Kirkwood could do
was a lone blow by El Peterson.

Ducks Face O.S.C.
Club Today at 3:00
By FRED TREADGOLD
All the festivities and color of a big-league opener will be
crammed into the northern division curtain raiser today when
Oregon, defending champions, play host to Oregon Stated
sophomoric outfit, in a tilt which will get under way at 3
o’clock. Kenny Oliphant, chairman of the opening day fiesta,
under “Order of the 0” sponsorship, promises a more elab
borate opening than ever oetore.
A huge parade onto Howe field
will proceed the Duck-Beaver
tussle. There will be the usual
flag-raising ceremonies by a Uni
versity ROTC unit.
Several honored guests will
be in the stands. These in
clude Willard Marks, chairman
of the state board of higher edu
cation; Frederick Hunter, chan
cellor of the state system; and
Elisha Large, major of Eugene.
They will throw the first ball, at
tempt to hit and catch it.
Orange Claim Ills
Getting down to the game—it
should be a bitter scrap. Up Cor
vallis way Coach Ralph Coleman
has been bemoaning injuries
which he claims will throw the
advantage to the Oregon side of
the ledger. Oregon’s mentor,
Howard Hobson, takes little stock
in these “bear stories” and fig
ures that the Orangemen will be
at full strength by game time.
Eight positions in the Web
foot lineup are sewed up. Ted
Filip, peppery little backstop,
will open at catcher; John Bu
balo will be at first; Don
Kirscli, second; Bob Farrow,
shortstcp; Bill Hamel, third;
Captain Bill Carney, left field;
Dick Whitman, centerfield;
and Dick Burns, right field.
The mound choice is the ques
tion mark. Hobby will have to
weed out two of his three poten
tial starters—Nick Begleries, Bob
Rieder, or John Bubalo.
Glenn Elliott, highly-publi
cized Orange southpaw who
was twice belittled by the
Ducks last year, probably will
start for the Beavers. If
Coach Coleman decides to pull
a last minute “fasty,” either

Plans for Beavers
By BILL STRATTON
Oregon’s next track competition before the ND dual meets, will
he a week from Saturday with Oregon State in the annual relays. The
Aggies appear to have the edge over the Ducks statistically, but the
Oregon thinclads don’t take a beating on paper.
This was proved in the Portland meet. Oregon was rated on the
short end, but swept 11 of 15 firsts, to mass 89 points to the Pi
1 here are tive returning' letter
men on Grant Swan’s OSC squad.
Captain Tommy Blair is the only
two-year man on the squad. He
is a showy, but steady performer,
and is out to crack the Oregon
State record in the quarter mile
event, says the Barometer.
Findlay Division Champ
The other lettermen are one
year men. Don Findlay was the
northern division broad jump
champ last year, with a jump of
23 feet 11 inches. According to
the OSC dope sheet, he should
do 21 or 25 feet this year. He is
also entered in the high jump,
and has jumped 6 feet 4 inches.
Another returning letterman
is Bill Waterman in the mile.
Oregon State dopesters dub
him fair and predict a 4:25 or
4:30 mile for him this year.
Probably the best known on
the squad is John Mandic, who
is entered in the high jump. He is
a one-year letterman and jumped
6 feet 3 inches last year. The
Beaver dope sheet states that he
should do at least 6 feet 6 this
season. His main trouble at pres
ent seems to be his legs, probably
from a rugged basketball season,
i he fifth is Gene Gray, a
sprinter. He has done :09.9 in
the loo, and the OSC dope says
lie should do it in :09.8 this
Seemingly one of the most
promising of the flock of sopho
mores, is Bob Fisher, a niiler.
He has done a 4^24 mile, and
the Aggies expect him to do
better than 4:20 this year.
Another sophomore, Sherwood
Fiakes, did 13 feet in the pole
vault last year, and is branded
one of their most valuable men.
