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
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.

Cornell Answers Nevada Edits
Concerning UO Ticket Policies
Two indignant editorials de
nouncing policies of the Oregon
athletic department appeared in
Friday’s “Sagebrush,” student
newspaper of the University of Ne
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

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
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
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
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

; 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.

winners in their opening tilts. Ore

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.
