Second place in the Northern Division dual meet standings

1 Hick harriers clash with the Oregon State Beavers Saturday on
The Web foots are currently holding the runner-up spot be
hind Washington State as a result of their 70-61 triumph over
the Huskies in Seattle last week. The Ducks have a season record
of two victories and one defeat while the Cougars have swept all
four of their contests. Oregon
State, Washington, and Idaho
are lodged in the celler with one
•victory and two defeats each.
For the second straight week,
the Ducks will have to depend
upon their depth men to come
up with the win. Both squads
are strong in some events, but
strength is practically non-existent
BEAVER COACH Grant (Doc)
Swan will have almost an open field
with sure firsts in the long distan
ces with Dick Petterson, veteran
tniler, and George Fullerton, soph
omore two miler, yet undefeated in
competition this spring.
Len Rinearson, OSC discus
man, will be hard pressed to keep
bis fop rung among ND platter
tosser when he meets Kay Heid
enrich and Bob Anderson of the
Ducks. The lanky Beaver has the
toss of the year so far with 149
feet 8 i/2 inches, but is closely fol
lowed by Heidenrieh with 144 feet
Another event where the compe
tition will be hotly contested is in
the broad jump, with Woodley Lew
in and Beaver Bob Laidlaw fighting
for first place. Lewis' leaps have
been over Laidlaw’s best perfor
mance this year, but the Beaver
captain went 24 feet 2 inches in the
Northern Division meet last May.
Dewis' top jump is 23 feet 5 inches.

Tt looks like Coach Sam Berry’s USC Trojans are pulling a re

Pacific Coast Conference representatives in the CIBA have
monopolized collegiate base

In 1947, the California Bears
defeated Washington State

athletic circles buzzing Wednes
day? You didn't? Well, we wonder
if anyone heard it, but according
to an INS dispatch from Los Ange

tlie charge of professionalism in
college football leveled by Dr. Rob
ert Gordon Sprout, piesident of the
University of California.”
Speaking: at Riverside, Cal.,
t lie Cal prexy termed modern
collegiate football “high power

and not an athlete playing at his
We have to wonder what Dr.
Sproul expects at his fair school.
Such “semi-professionalism” is
the rule rather than exception at
most big schools, and is permit
ted under the sanity code.
Fines and suspension from the
NCAA result from code violations,
and the flashy halfbacks keep com
ing in droves. Many probably share
Dr. Sprouts views on the subject,
but fewotake it upon themselves to
say or do anything about it.
DESPITE ALL, the buzzing, few
if any changes will be made in the
collegiate football setup, and near
ly everybody will stay happy—es
pecially the athletes.
Along- the same line is a story
from Atlanta, Ga., telling of a
meeting planned for May 28 to
discuss amendments to the NC
AA sanity code, which would be
submitted to NCAA offieals.
The Southeastern, Southern, and
Southwest conferences will be rep
resented at the meeting, which will
be an effort “to get a more work
able setup which all schools could'
abide by . . .

the new $1,800,000 Gill basketball

plans are underway to replace an

of an engineering firm to study
the Bell field site, to determine
final location of the new stadium.
