By BERNIE HAMMERBECK
The showing of the Washington Huskies in downing the
Oregon State track team Saturday very definitely stamped the
Seattle squad as the team to
beat in 1947 northern division
The Bell field meet did
not, however, preclude the
possibilities of other teams,
making a strong showing.
The Huskies look mighty
hard to beat in dual competi
tion, but a combination of
strong entries from the
other four schools could
make the Washington squad
really hustle for points in the
Don Wold and Bill Steed
appear the class of the North
west in the distance events.
The Huskies also swept through by a large margin in tne
sprints, but here Bill Hayward’s Webfoots could give some
trouble. Phil Brewer turned in wins in the century and fur
lone- with times of 10.1 and 22.7. Conditions were none too
good for running Saturday, and Washingtons sprinters may
show better but the Lemon and Green is capable of power plus
in the sprints.
Earl Robinson edged the defending XI) 440 champ—OSC s
O. B. Hughes—as lie finished at 49.9. Here again the Web
foots are expected to make a gallant bid with the Klamath Falls
speed merchant Dave Henthorne ready to give both Hughes^
and Robinson plenty of trouble.
Rass Will Have Competition
Alike Scanlan cleared 12 feet 9 inches in the pole vault and
soared over the 13-1 bar in a jump that did not count. To date
Chlonel Bill has been mighty stingy in allowing Oregon's ace
—George Rassmussen—to work at the higher levels. He cleared
12-9 with ease against Idaho and did 13-6 last summer so a
bitter duel is in prospect here. Oregon's real chance here lies in
Don Pickens to come through for points behind Rassmussen.
Don was No. 2 behind Rass as a prepper last year and may up
his ceiling considerably with a little more confidence.
The form chart will be thrown away when the high jump
rolls around. Bill Beifuss is the defending champion and
has the best mark thus far, but the ND has several other
jumpers capable of taking the event if they are right.
The javelin was won with a toss of 180 feet in the Beaver
Husky dual, and this scarcely holds against what the Web
foots have to. offer. Lou Robinson is over the 200 mark in com
petition, Keith DeCourcey is a 200-foot thrower from previous
vears and is fast rounding into shape, and Jim Porter is well
over the 180-foot mark in practice.
Washington's Lyle Clark appears to have the edge in the
hurdles picking off a pair of wins Saturday. Oregon’s Wyn
Wright ran a second to him in the finals last year, and Jack
Doyle is expected to start breaking the tape in respectable
times before long to give the Ducks a threat in both the low
and high sticks.
Vandal Kids Deserve Praise
Hobby Hobson's hitless wonders have locals scratching
their heads, as to just w hat the Webfoots have this year. Chief
source of satisfaction should be the fact that the win-loss
columns are the fines that pay off. The Ducks looked miserable
at the plate against the Vandal wrong-arm thumbers, but the
Oregon showing on the mound gives ground for more optimism
than that department has ever shown.
The plucky kids from Moscow certainly deserve a round
of praise. They have experience only at catcher, first base,
right field, and two pitchers. Other than that they are
relying on 17- and 18-year-clders to fill the bill, and Frosh
Roland Massingill at third base looks like a real comer.
The. Vandals moaned the two days they were here over
their second loss to Oregon State. They outclubbed the Beav
ers but committed ten errors in the field. One thing for cer
tain, Coach Guy Wicks’ boys will cause rival coaches plentv oj
trouble before the year is over.
.... Ray Johnson, crack Medford quarter-miler of pre-war
days, is back at Southern Cal, and despite reports to the con
trary, is listed as one of Dean Cromwell’s top 440-men. John
Fiscalini, catcher for the California Bears, is leading the
C.I.B.A. with a healthy .533 for four games. Lou Briganti,
UCLA captain, is close behind at .529 for five games.
