Oregon’s defending champs open their third home stand of the 1943 campaign this after
noon at a 3 o’clock hour against a victory-starving Washington State Cougar, that has eaten
nothing so far but cast-off crumbs on a disastrous twelve - day road trip. 1 he Cats from
Pullman have been yowling for a triumph through four consecutive games, but have met n^
ing but rebuffs from every side. This discouraging performance on the part of the WSC
stickers is anything but in keeping with the way the ND experts had things sized up before

conference clubs out this spring.
Backed up by a fair-sized group
of returning letterwinners, the
Cougars under Jack Friel, nov
ice baseball coach, were consid
ered one of the “toughies" of the
The Pullman diamond clan will
put forth its best foot today in
trying to dodge the misfortune of
the past. They were bowled over
twice by Washington’s leag'ue
leading Huskies and then met a
similar fate at Corvallis from
Beat Idaho Twice
On the other hand, Hobby Hob
son's title boasters have been
basking under the light of success
most of the time, though occa
sional lapses have cost them
games. Idaho was trounced a
couple of times when superb
pitching by Nick Begleries and
Hal Saltzman cut the Vandals off
at the pockets.
A brace of engagements with
Oregon State netted one win, one
loss. In the triumph, the Ducks
hammered Beaver pitching with
relentlessness and waved on high
for all to see, a fat 14-1 win.
Things went “flooey” in the
return bout when a letdown in
the YVebfoot infield allowed the
OSCers to strain out several un
earned runs. Oregon came out
on the short, and sad, end of a
4 to 3 deeision.
But all that erraticness seems
to be gone now. For Head Boss
Hobson has drilled his charges at
every spare opportunity on field
ing accuracy and the concentrated
efforts, according to reports from
SENDS HIS BOYS TO THE WIRE AGAIN . . .
. . . Howard Hobson, veteran Duck coach, puts his walloping1 Webfoots
up against an invading W ashington State outfit today at Howe field.
Probable lineups for today:
the Duck bivouac, have borne
fruit. That Webfoot infield should
be just as air-tight, leak-proof,
hit-resistant as ever.
Fifteen Cougars Here
Cougar Ringleader Friel brings
to Eugene an entourage of some
15 athletes, including five chuck
ers, all of whom already have
seen action. Which of the quin
tet will receive Friel's nomination
to rip open today’s affair from
the pitcher’s mole-hill is probably
just as puzzling to the Cougar
mentor as to the local railbirds.
Anyway here's the list of the
five chuckers on the traveling
squad: Rog Olson, Bob Scalzo,
Jack Radke, Ward Rockey, and
Wally Kramer Scalzo is the
sophomore ace who dropped a
heartbreaker to Washington last
week. Kramer is a southpaw star
who reputedly shows quite a bit
with the left flipper.
Catching time for the Cougar
men will be divided up between
Ray Cranston and Dick Dodge.
The infield will probably consist
of Don Aries, Bob Rennick, Bob
Dau, and Tom Branigan, the lat
ter transplanted from catcher.
The outfield combination should
include Rosey Bergman, George
Davison, and A1 Akins, football
and basketball man.
Changes may be in order in
the WSC lineup if Friel chooses
to insert some of his hard-hit
ting pitchers in the outfield
spots as he did against Oregon
Hobson is expected to stand pat
on his starters. It’s just about
time for Nick Begleries, the little
big hurler, to work again. If so,
WON’T BE HERE . . .
. . . Buck Bailey, WSC’s affable
coach last year, won’t be with
the Cougars this season; he’s in
the navy now.
the visitors can expect to be in for
an afternoon of curve ball watch
ing. Nick really wraps the “ben
der” of his over the platter.
The Oregon infield will prob
ably feature John Bubalo at first,
Don Kirsch at second, Bill Hamel
at third, Bob Farrow at short,
and Roy Carlson catching. Out
field selections will lie among Art
Murphy, Dick Burns, Barney
Koch, and Bob Caviness.
