V - . • Cookie Lavagetto Breaks Up Fourth Game in World Series NEW YQftK, Oct. 3. (UP)—Cookie Lavagetto, an old man with one leg in retirement, broke up a no-hit ball game today when two were out in the ninth inning and gave the battling Brooklyn Dodgers a 3 to 2 victory over the New York Yankees that squared the World Series at two games all. Big Floyd Bevens. a. lad from Salem Oregon, who came within one hit of becoming the first pitcher ever to hurl a series no-hit game, had two men, on bas who had walked, when he served a fat one to Lavagetto. The stocky little utility infielder promptly rapped it high against the right field wall to score two pinch runners and turn what appeared sure defeat into victory. liatnea uoagers Bevens through eight and two-thirds tense innings baffled the Dodgers—a team which kenotes youth and speed. The big fellow from Salem, a “tough luck” guy who seems fated to lose one-run games, had everything but control. His stuff was working, even though he was the wildest pitcher in series history. He walked 10 men, breaking the mark set by Jack Coombs of the Athletics in 1910.

According to information of fered by the University athletic manager, Anse B. Cornell, the grievance arose from a misunder standing on the part of the Uni versity of Nevada Sagebrush edi torial staff in one case, and an error, since rectified, on the pare of the Oregon athletic department. Voices Complaint One “Sagebrush” editorial de cried an Oregon ruling refusing free admittance of Nevada stu dents to Saturday’s football game at Hayward field upon presentation of their student body cards. Visit ing Nevada fans will be required to pay regular admission charges. “We are wondering,” the edito rial read, “why an institution the size, and with the background of the Pacific Coast conference school, has gone on record to fail to honor the student cards of a friendly rival . . . now, with Ore gon playing cheapskate, we think the number making the jaunt (to today’s game) will be smaller.” No Favorite Cornell explained Friday that Oregon is not discriminating against the Nevada school, but is following a policy generally accept ed in the Pacific Coast conference. The athletic manager pointed out that Idaho university, U.S.F., Washington, Washington State, and Oregon State are among other Pacific coast schools whose stu dents pay thehir own way to out of-town games. An exception to this rule appears in the football contract between UCLA and Oregon specifying that I student body cards of both schools j will be honored when they meet in ! coast conference contests. Cornell explained that the clause was made possible because the dis tance between the two universities (Please turn to page eight) New Physicists Serve Science The physics department boasts two new associate professors, Dr. Eugene P.

Oregon Team Favored To Annex Second Win In Non-conference Play Oregon’s fighting football team clashes with the Nevada Wolfpack today on Hayward field, in the third non-confer ence tilt of the season for the Ducks. Kick-off time is 2 p.nt. An estimated 10,000 fans will witness tlve fray. The weather man has again changed his mind, and predicts shirt-sleeve ' warmth for the third consecutive week. Both squads go into the game with records of one win and Changes in UO Ticket Policy Draw Criticism Complaints were received by the Emerald Friday regarding a new ruling of the University ticket of fice which discontinues the early sale of general admission football tickets to wives of University stu dents. Formerly, married students were able to purchase the tickets at Mc Arthur court prior to the time they were put on sale at Hayward field booths. According to Mrs. R. J. Wren, ticket manager, early ticket sales were discontinued due to a- deluge of demands on the part of students and their wives who found they were not going to be able to attend games for which they bought tick ets, and wished to be refunded the purchase price in return for the ducats. Not Redeemable Mrs. Wren explained that it is a policy of the ticket office that tickets sold are not redeemable. To avoid lenthy explanations and confusion in the ticket office, the practice of selling general ad mission tickets before they go on sale at the game will be discontin ued," the ticket manager said. Similarly no advanced sale will be made on general admission tick ets to the Washington-Oregon game October 18. The reason be hind this ruling, Mrs.' Wren re vealed, was a flood of letters re ceived by James Richardson, man ager of the Multnomah Athletic club, from irate Portlanders pro testing the early admission of Ore gon students’ wives to the Texas ! game at Multnomah stadium last i Saturday. Tickets Sold Early A total of 224 tickets had been sold to University students prior to the time they went on sale at the stadium. However, only a part of I the holders of these tickets found ; their way into the bleachers be fore Richardson ordered that no more persons would be admitted to the stadium on general admis sion tickets until the ducats went on sale at the regular ticket booths. Arrangements have been made for a general admission booth to j be located At gate 17 on the east side of Hayward field today so that students’ wives may more conven iently buy their tickets and enter the gates with their husbands. Non-student wives will be ad mitted to the student section of the bleachers only if they are in the company of their husbands. one loss. Both scored their winners in their opening tilts. Ore gon outran Montana State college, 27-34, while Nevada trounced Flag staff (Arizona) State 50-0. The Ducks were hit 38-13 last weekend, and the Wolfpack dropped to the classy San Francisco Dons, 37-13. Webfoots Picked to W'in Oregon was rated seventy-second nationally and Nevada ninety fourth late in the week and the Webfoots are picked to beat Joe Sheeketski’s Wolfpack. Oregon will probably be without the use of defense Bill Abbey, one of the hardest-tackling men on the squad. Abbey suffered a leg injury in the Texas fray, and was in uni J form for practice only one day dur ! ing the week. Otherwise the squad ! is in nearly top physical condition. Backfield Hindered Nevada’s backfield performance may be hindered by the loss through injury of their top running star Halfback Tommy Kalmanir. Kalmanir broke his hand in the San Francisco game. This will be the first meeting be I tween the Webfoots and the Reno squad, but not the first between Oregon Coach Jim Aiken and the Wolfpack. Aiken was head mentor at the Nevada for eight years and his old pupils will be out to show the coach they learned their les sons well.
