HELPS THROTTLE PILOTS—Dick DeBernardi, 185-pound junior
right-hander, opened in the box for Oregon’s winning Webfoots
against Portland last night, giving up two runs in his two-inning
stint. DeBernardi expects to see more action later on during the
Ducks’ important road trip, which was begun in fine style with a
23-0 decision over the Pilots.

Aiken figures to use the platoon

The Kirschmen unleashed a fe

Dave Henthorne Sparks
Tracksters in Sprints
One of the biggest small men
ever to spray cinders for an Ore
gon track aggregation is little
Davey Henthorne. It might be
assumed that Davey is general
ly thrilled about his chosen
When asked to name the
most thrilling race or event that
he ever won, the Klamath Falls
streak replied, “all of them.” Upon
the opposite query, concerning the
most thrilling event he has ever
lost, Davey said the same thing.
While at Klamath Falls Union
high school, Davey risked life and
limb on the gridiron one year, and
was awarded one letter for his
speedy efforts.
HE GARNERED three Pelican
letters for track, however, where
he participated in the 100 yard
dash, his avowed specialty, the 220,
440, board jump, and the 880 relay.
Presently a junior, Davey bid the
Pelicans farewell in May, 1945,
when he enlisted in the Navy for a
one year hitch. While in bell-bot
toms, he participated in two meets
in the Philippines.
Dave was a member of the truck
driving, land-based section of our
water-going first line of defense,
and as such was shackled at Samar
Island, in the southern Philippines,
for most of his enlistment.
UPON SHEDDING his pajama
like garb, Davey enlisted at the
University of Oregon for a four
year hitch, beginning in the Fall of
1946. He ran his first race as a fly
ing Webfoot in the spring of 1947
here in a dual meet against the Uni
versity of Idaho.
At that time, Oregon’s beloved
track coach, the late Bill Hayward,

was guiding the fortunes of the
Duck thinclads.
So far in his collegiate career,
Davey has won himself two Oregon
“0”s, and holds dual meet records
against Idaho in the 100 yard dash,
the 440, and as a member of the
mile relay combination.
THE FASTEST race Davey has
ever run was during the 1947 Nor
thern Division meet when he click
ed off a 9.6 100 yard dash. On that
same day, the ex-Pelican flash fin
ished the 220 in 21.1.
Davey calls George Rasmussen,
high-soaring Webfoot pole vaulter,
the finest track performer he has
ever seen. His rave notices about
“Ras” would be enough to hand the
Texas Relay King unchallenged
rights for a berth on the next Unit
ed States Olympic team.
Davey, a Sigma Chi, stands five
feet, eight inches, and weighs in at
140 pounds.
