calmly pushed everyone else aside

The dribbling was a mixture of

Calls Harriers
Oregon sunshine turned thumbs
down on Colonel Bill Hayward's
harriers Monday afternoon forc
ing indoor workouts in place of
the usual cinder-churning on the
ttack. Stress was placed upon
conditioning work with special em
phasis on starts . and muscle con
ditioning exercises.
Although the squad was bol
stered by the addition of a dozen
cindermen, Colonel Hayward never
theless issued an appeal to all
former trackmen with experience
to turn out for the varsity squad
immediately. As of the beginning
of the third week of workouts
there is still a definite shortage of
pole vaulters, high jumpers, low
and high hurdlers, and sprintmen.
Additional squad men are needed
to fill the vacant positions on the
relay team; at the present time
all of the positions are open and
competition among the 30 track
men who hate turned out so far is
Returned Sprinter
Monday saw the addition of
three experienced harriers to the
Oregon squad, thus bolstering the
gloomy outlook* for the 1946
season. Jack McCracken, frosh
century man in 1941, returned to
the local oval after a four year
leave of absence, so far McCracken
is the only bright spot in the
sprints although Hayward is hope
ful that Jake Leicht will turn out
before competition begins with
Oregon State.
Evans Cantrell and Paul Smith,
former Washington high school
middle distance men, have finally
broken away from the hold-out
status and according to past per
formances these two tracksters
should place in conference compe
tition during the season.
The Webfoot harriers face a dif
ficult task this season for in the
first week the Washington Huskies
signed up 51 harriers for the
various track and field events in
cluding a front lihe of returning
lettermen in nearly every post. No
official announcements have been
received from the other schools in
the conference as yet but large
turnouts are expected.
