By GEORGE SKORNEY
Upon the result of this simple statement rests the hopes
of Colonel Bill Hayward and his reportedly “green Webfoots,"
who have at arm’s length the northern division Pacific Coast
conference dual meet championship.
In the 36th annual meeting between the two schools, the
Beavers under Grant (Doc) Swann are favored to take their
second decision in ten years ana
their 13th in the long- rivalry be
tween the two schools.
Duck meets Beaver here today
on Hayward field at 1:30.
The Staters have beaten Coach
Hayward's lads, 6-2 in the annual
Oregon State relays at Corvallis
at the beginning of the season.
Colonel Bill has his share of
moans as well as his rival Swann.
Don Wilson the flashy miler will
probably not run for the Ducks.
The black-haired Wilson has been
ailing- of late and his performances
haave not been up to par.
Kay Dickson, double winner
against the Cougars, went into
the marines last Sunday and is
sorely missed. He ran both the
low and high hurdles, broad jump
ed and pole vaulted.
Another sad note is that Chuck
Beckner, versatile quarter-miler,
is also uncertain of running- since
he has come up with a cold like
Wilson. Beckner is the anchor
man on the mile relay team and
runs number one in the 440. His
best time of the season has been
Coach Hayward has had to
take his high jump men and en

Mueller will not only pole vault
but will run the 220-yard low
hurdles for the first time. Ralph
Kramer is entered in the 100-yard
dash. All in all his usual runners
have been shifted to spots entire
ly foreign to them in order that
he might best fill up his holes
and prepart the best front he

army regulations, four sure point

Findley, broad jump and high
jump; Len Moyer, quarter-miler
and relay; Bill Waterman, mile;
.and A1 Fiake, two mile.
Besides these boys, the OSC
mentor will travel without the
services of Bob' Graf, high jump
er; Jesse Truax, sprinter; Dean
Olson and Don Malmberg, javelin
men; Boyd Clement, discus; and
Lew' Beck, broad jumper.

The Beavers will have three

Haywaid has but one topnotcher.
