    Solders Blitz Duck Crew
Locals Finally Lose
To Ex-Pros 4 to 3
Oregon’s power-crammed Ducks finally met their match
?:ter chalking up six straight wins, but it took a star-sprinkled
gang of Camp Adair Timberwolves to turn the trick yester
day by a 4 to 3 count in a game that was played “just for fun,"
having no bearing on the conference standings. With Howe
field and the auxiliary sawdust diamonds both muddy morasses,
the tilt was shifted to the grassy, outer reaches of Howe field
Dt'ilU Dfll nil>
It was no disgrace .to drop the
one-run decision to the touted Sol
cKer-boy's who are claimed to rate
with the best of coast service
♦earns. They were paced by a
couple of ex-pro big shots, Beau
Bell, former St. Louis Brownie
slugging star, and a clouting,
ruthless hitter, Connor, one-time
Akron, Ohio, ace, and an unknown,
one Mr. Armstrong.
This swatting trio accumulated
seven of the 10 soldier blows, while
♦ ton Kirseh, Johnny Bubalo, and
♦Sill “Pop” Ilamel tried their
♦turndest to offset this with six
Mows of their own.
But Hie Timber Wolves were
able to hop on some of Hobby’s
second-line flingers and ousli over
t)he needed scores.
The Ducks almost caught up
with the Wo If men wj^h, stupen
dous three-run rally in the fifth
hut were unable to keep the scor
ing- ball rolling- and had to, be con
tent to come out second best—
something that has been a rarity
this season.
The Camp Adair outfit grabbed
off a single score in the opening
'panel on Frye’s biff to center
which went for two bases. Frye
made the circuit thanks to bob
bins by the usually reliable Bubalo
and Roy Carlson.
In the fourth round this slug
ging Connor boy larruped a pro
digious home run to deep center
field with the sacks bereft of his
mates to set the score at 2-0. visi
tors on tlie happy end.
Back stormed Hobson's hecklers
with a three-blow salvo which
: loved across the only Oregon
•uns. With one away. Hamel
pumped a double to left, and took
third when Dick Burns reached
f rst on a fielder’s choice.

Wren, Puziss Hurl Air Tight
Tilts in Intramural Action
Delta Upsilon and Sigma Alpha Mu abandoned their per
sonal feud and took up with other clubs and both came out
victorious. The DUs slapped down Sigma Chi 7 to 1 and SAM
walloped the Chi Psi crew 11 to 0.
In the four other contests of the day, ATO easily over
powered Canard club 7 to 1, Theta Chi and Alpha-Sigma hall
nau a slugging nee witn r neta
Chi coming- out on top, 10 to 6,
SAFJ downed Campbell club, 8
to 2 and Sigma Nu continued to
win, trampling Sherry Ross by
an overwhelming 13 to 3 score.
When Wins Again
Both the Delta Upsilon and
SAM triumphs were the results
of brilliant pitching performanc
es. Bob Wren again turned in an
outstanding hurling job as he
limited Sigma Chi to one hit and
one run. For three innings Wren
chucked scoreless ball allowing
but one hit, a single to Jack
Leonard, Damsehen, Maynard,
and Bradshaw all turned in fine
games for the losers.
“Babe” Fuziss of SAM was the
hurling hero of the SAM win fol
lowing Wren in turning in a one
hit performance but also gave up
no runs. He struck out 8 Chi
trolled into the scoring zone.
Kirsoh scored a minute later on
an error by Third Baseman Jones.
A pair of visitor's singles set
the stage for Slugger Beau Bell's
“clutch" double to center for the
deciding runs.
From there on out every Oregon
rally attempt went “flooey!”
Lt. Jack Knott, ex-Philadelphia
chucker, who some 200 fans turned
out to see, wasn’t needed so con
fined his activities to intermit
tent warming up on the sidelines.
Psis and was never threatened.
His mates jumped on Fenton for
11 runs in the five frames. Bueh
wacli, with a homer and Rein
gold with a triple led the win
ners’ attack.
Lomax. Gunn, Howard and
Mills put up a desperate but fu
tile attempt to stem the SAM
attack but Puziss was too much
for them.
Sigma Nu Triumphs
Sigma Nu continued to rack up
wins as they went hit crazy to
swamp Sherry Ross. The defend
ing champs have won all their
games but an opening round tilt
to Alpha-Sigma hall. Yesterday
they had their batting eyes
sharpened and the whole squad
belted the pellet with fervor. Skil
lieorn, Williamson. Mickey, and
Ed Dick With two runs apiece led
tile attack. Dodson, Mickey and
aw got to Rog Dick in the fourth
frame for their only scores.
DeKeater was the big gun in
tlie SAE triumph over Campbell.
He walloped the oval for three
hits and three runs to give Evers,
SAE hurler, fine support. Evers,
besides pitching a tight game,
counted enough runs to have won
his own contest. He had a per
fect day at the plate with 4 for
4 and scored three runs. The win
ners got 7 of their runs in the
last three innings. For Campbell,

Gliormley, Burcli, Hoffmaster,
and Marlowe got to Evers for Z
runs and a half a dozen hits.
Theta Chi Posts Victory
Behind a barrage of bingles
Davis of Theta Chi squeaked out
a win over Alpha-Sigma hall, 10
to 6. Beth clubs hit the ball hard
and often but Theta Chi was the
more consistent. They had a field
day in the first frame and scored
7 runs which proved to be the
winning margin. After that Farg
her of A-s chucked steady ball.
For the winners, Baufman, Potts,
Emmons, and Childs wielded big
sticks: while Rodgers, Farghar,
Paris, Hagar and Skorney
smacked the pellet often for Al
Behind the steady hurling of
Crocker, ATO had an easy time
with Canard, winning out, 7 to 1.
ATO started to work early and
scored all their runs in the first
three frames. Sell, Bosch, Chick,
and Allan pounded out timely
Glows for the winners while Back

Scctt and Merrick were the guid
