400Y oungAthletes Expected
For Hayward Cinder Meet
Between 300 and 400 athletes are expected to attend the

Colonel Bill Hayward, veteran Oregon track coach without a
j cinder squad of his own for the first time in more than 40
years, is directing the meet.
Twenty-five high schools are participating in the meet which
was inaugurated by Hayward in
1937 as a means of training: for
later meets. In 1937 the Chemavva
Indian school captured the title
against five other rivals. The next
year there were 16 entries with
Medford coming out on top. The
southern Oregon team copped the
crown in the next two seasons
when the attendance rose to 17 and
In 1940 Hayward divided the
competition into the present “A,”
"B,” and “C” classifications. In '41
the attendance increased to 25 and
hit the top in ’42 with 28. In recent
years the relays have alternated
oelxveen the two state schools, but
last year Oregon State failed to
hold the meet.
For the first time in history the
relays of Portland will be repre
sented in the “A” division by
Grant, Washington, Lincoln, Ben

Dee GeeH urler
Wins Shut Out
This week’s most outstanding ;
game in softball was played by the
DeeGees and Sigma Kappas. Par
ticularly outstanding was the
pitching of DeeGee Helen Johns,
who pitched a shut-out game giv -
ing her team a 7 to (1 win. The Sig
ma Kappa pitcher was ill which
hampered them somewhat, but the
DeeGee team outplayed them both
in the field and in the infield.
Helen Johns was staunchly sup
ported by Catcher Shirley Gray.
The only home run of the game
was hit by DeeGee Liza Huston.
One of the most exciting games ;
of the week was the AOPI-Hill- ^
crest game which Hillcrest took
with a score of 3 to 2. Tn the last ;
inning the AOPis made a big bid |
for the game when they scored two
tuns. The AOPis were backed up
by two strong players, Twins Mur- ,
iel and Marian Olson, playing at
first base and left field. Hillcrest ■
was led by their excellent pitcher, '
B. J. Waite.
The Orides won their game from •
the Chi Os by a landslide of 26
to 7. They scored 12 of their 27
runs in the first inning and contin
ued scoring until the end of the
game. The Orides’ most outstand
ing player is their fast and accu
rate shortstop, Mary Alice “Pete”
Lawson. In the last inning the Chi
Os introduced a new pitcher, Jean
Kirkwood, who proved to be a
bood ball player by pitching a fast
outside curve that kept the Orides
from hitting any good balls. Ori
des won another game this week
by an even larger tally 34 points
against the Thetas’ 1.
The Alpha Chis made a beautiful
comeback in their game Thursday
evening. In the fourth inning the
