Ducks Win Thriller;
Stop Staters’ Streak
Bill Carney blasted a towering home run over the right field em
bankment of Howe field in the tenth inning yesterday to write
f'inis to a hectic Oregon-Oregon State ball game, and send the Bea
vers limping off on the killing Inland Empire trip on the short end of
s» (> to 5 beating.
The setback clips a six-game winning streak for the Beavers
and rekindles Oregons taint
hopes of copping the baseball
crown again.
A Great Ball Game
It was a great ball game. It’s
hard to know where to stait in
recounting it. There was that
great diving catch by Dick Burns
in the top of the tenth that
turned into an unassisted double
play and cut off an OSC rally.
.And there was Johnny Bubalo's
homer in the eighth that tied up
the ball game at five all. Then,
too, there was Don Kirsch’s thiee
ruil homer in the fifth that gave
Oregon a 4 to 2 lead.
Oregon drew.' first blobd in the
third when theyshoved fhe.i.r first

The lead was short-lived, as
the Beavers came back with a
two-run flurry in the fifth on
Don Durclan’s home run. Doug'
Pederson reached first on Bill
Hamel’s error and Durdan cleared
t'.je sacks with a line drive homer
into center.
Undaunted, the Ducks came
back in the last of the fifth
and posted three runs via a walk,
a double play that went wrong,
and a long home run by Kirsch
over the left field bank.
Bill Hamel walked to'start the
toning. Begleries reached first

a double play failed to material

It was 4 to 2 for the Ducks and
with Nick still strong, things
looked good. Then, with one away
in the sixth, the Beavers touch.d

Bob Rieder came into the game.
Bill Hamel cut off any Beaver’s
dreams of runs that inning when
lie pulled in Pederson's line drive
over the bag and doubled Norm
Peters off the sack.
Rieder lost control in the sev
enth and put two men on by
walks. Then Bob Farrow booted
one at short and the bases were
full. Elwyne McRae took cure of

double into extreme left and send

Cindermen Travel
To Pullmen Friday
Colonel Bill Hayward lias kept *a. watchful eye cn his Webfoot
cinder squad this week, trying to pick a traveling team to face
Washington State at Pullman Saturday.
Because of transportation costs, Hayward will he able to take
only lti men, including trainer, manager, and himself. Tryouts were
held for the middle distances yesterday, but no announcement was
made as to the complete team. It
will be necessary to take the most
versatile men in order to be rep
resented in all the events.
Some who are likely to make
the trip are Zenas Butler, sprints,
hurdles, and broad jump; Homer
Thomas, pole vault; Bob Xew
land. high jump and broad jump;
Don Wilson, mile and two mile;
Ralph Kramer, sprints and hur
dles; Francis Tuckwiler, middle
distances; Chuck Elliot, weights;
Stan Skillieorn, SSO; Warren
base which Burns gathered in
on a beautiful flying dive to dou
ble Brown off of first.
It was Carney's .•■how from
there on in. With two strikes
against him and none away, he
caught hold of one of Glenn "El
liot's southpaw offerings to send
it over that same left field em
bankment. break up the game,
and beat the Beavers.
While only in for two innings,
Elliot gets credit for the loss to
end his winning streak at three
straight. Bub earned the win for
Finke, javelin; Dick Shelton, mid
dle distances; Kenny Oliphant,
sprints; Fred Foster, weights;
Owen Day, pole vault and hur
dles; and Bill Deller, javelin and
high jump.
The squad was hit Wednes
day when Stan Hay, middle dis
tance man was counted out for
the MSC meet because of a had
leg and the resignation of Ed
lieiner, another middle distance
man. Both of these men were
always counted on for points.
The javelin department took
new life this week when Warren
Finke started throwing the wil
low like a champ. He has shown
steady improvement, and heaved
it 172 feet this week. He claims
he is just getting on to it, and
should develop rapidly.
Psychologically speaking, it is
sound to maintain many peace
time extracurricular activities
during war, in opinion of Dr. Paul
White, University of Texas psy
