Politics this morning, men.
Gil Roberts and Tom Kay missed a bet yesterday morn
ing at the Igloo.
Greatest campaign issue in the world went unthumped as
the campus politicos cut loose with the first official blast of
the 1946 set-to. Ever hear “taxation without represetnation is
tyranny?” . . ,
The campaigners of 1776 did quite well with it. And were
going to have it right here in Eugene. And neither party picked
up the challenge.
If the five percent tax on athletic events goes into effect
in Eugene who is going to pay the freight? Sure, the local
citizenry chunks in part of it, but where is the big revenue
source ? Right the first time—up at the Igloo and Hayward field.
Whose dough is it? It belongs to the ASUO. You’re
the ASUO, men,, and you don’t have a thing to say about
what happens to your dough when the city treasurer gets
his hands on the greenbacks.
Taxation without representation was tyranny in 17/6 and
in 1946 it looks like it still ought to be classed the same. Come
on, Kay and Roberts, what are you going to do about it—one
of you will officially represent the student body and its fi
naricial welfare next Wednesday meaning.
OUT OF THE SMOKE-FILLED ROOMS
Rack to the simple things now, men—let the thinkers work
it out. .
When Idaho was down here on the road trip, they had a
snappy little scorckeeper who spent most of both days running
back and forth to the press box to argue about the calls on the
hits and errors.
At one point he became quite disgruntled and tossed up
the threat, “Wait’till these guys come to Moscow.
Guess he wasn't kidding. Hal Saltzman tossed four innings
of the first game at Moscow and retired when Oregon ran up
a shoo-in lead.
Looks like he should have been credited with the win.
The rules state that the scorekeeper may credit a pitcher
with a win even though he doesn’t pitch the required four
and two-thirds innings—IF he has a commanding or win
ning lead when he leaves the game.
Saltzman certainly had the lead, but our Idaho friend saw
fit to send the official winning pitcher to the league statistician
as Dick Leld. Not that Lehl didn’t do a good job, but probably
he will admit that Saltzman could have had the win had he
stayed in the.game.
Call it revenge if you can. but the point escapes this feeble
mind. Saltzman is the leading pitcher in the loop and nothing
short of a major upset can take it away from him. Idaho lost
the game—nothing was gained there.
People are confusing.

out of the nine events it was possible to compare, to the
marks of the Oregon-Oregon State meet yesterday.
The prepsters had the edge in the 100. pole vault, mile, high

of strength in a lot of events.

count. Included in the barrage was
a homer by Hurtzig in the third
inning. The Winning chucker was
The Fijis gained their victory at
the expense of the Delts by a 15-5
score when they combed the Delt
hurlers for 13 blows, two of which
were home runs. Aiding in the
scoring were two Delt errors. An

bed top honors when he teed off
for a pair of fourply swats, one on
the third and another in the fourth.
The Sigma Alpha Mu nine broke
the .500 mark when they came from
behind to down the Campbell club

five runs in the first two innings
but were edged out when the Sam

ing four runs earlier in the game.
Omega hall racked up its third
victory via a forfeiture when the
Sigma Nu nine failed to arrive.

Four Teams Boast Perfect
Marks in Donut Leagues
The ATOs, Bums, Sigma Chi, and
the Betas all boast perfect records
in intra-mural softball play this
season according to figures re
leased by intra-mural director Le
roy Ericson yesterday.
The ATOs top League One with
a perfect record of four and zero
but are closely followed by the
Bums who have only three wins
against no losses. The champion
ship in this league may be de
cided when the two teams lock
horns later in the season. •
Campbell Club and SAE are tied
for the lead in League Two with
three wins and a single loss apiece.
Each team still has one game to
In League Three the Fijis lead
the pack with a record of four and
one but are closely followed by
Omega Hall with three and one.
Inasmuch as the Fijis have com
pleted their season the outcome is
up to the Omega nine which still
has one game remaining. A win
for the Omegans would put the
two teams in a tie.
A perfect mark of four and zero
puts the Sigma Chi on top in
League Four, but here again the
lead is bitterly contested with the
Betas also boasting a perfect
record but only three wins. A third
possibility is the Delta Ups who
could possibly tie for the lead if
they won their remaining contests
while the two top teams each lost
