week by less than a foot. Oregon 8,
Mile relay: Oregon, if necessary.
Mile Relay May Hold Key,
Victory Predicted for 'O'
For the second straight week the final mile relay event may
well be the decisive one for Bill Bowerman’s Oregon harriers
when they continue their drive for second place in the North Di
vision dual meet standings by clashing with Oregon State on
Hayward Field this afternoon.
Field events get under way at 1:30,
the running events at 2.
ONE REASON why the relay may
become the all-important match is
that the teams don’t have to ad
here to the 22-man squad, which has
made coaches enter only men that
figured to be possible point grab
bers. The meet will probably see
each team with a three-man limit
in every event.
Even if Doc Swan’s charges force
the running of the relay, their
chances of capturing the meet will
remain almost nil. The Duck relay
team, A1 Bullier, Jack Countryman,
Walt McClure, and Davey Hen
thorne, look too powerful for any
thing Swan can muster. The Web
foot outfit already holds one vic
tory over the Beavers, an easy 20
yard margin in the annual relays
run April 9.
Both tlife Oregon varsity and
frosh tennis teams will be decided
underdogs in today’s contests with
the Oregon State varsity and
rooks, respectively. The matches
are slated to be played this after
noon on the Beaver courts.
Only last Wednesday the Bea
vers left Eugene after having
racked up a decisive 6-1 triumph
over the Ducks.
TODAY’S results will probably
find the Staters in a repeat win.
Oregon State is expected to start
the same line-up of experienced
lettermen, with Hugh Findlay
spearheading his mates.
He will be followed by Jack Oar
rothers, lies Brigham, Ivan nat
field, ami either Nevln Cope or Bill
Player-Coach Saal Lesser of the
Webfoots will retaliate with an ag
gregation in which he has made
one change since Wednesday.
Bill Williams moves into fifth,
replacing Bob Mensor.
ONE DOUBLES team will com
bine Dave Van Zandt and Bud Car
penter, while the other will be
filled by Lesser and Bob Carey.

Midwest Utah Tilts for Quint
10th Inning Hit
By Kovenz Gives
By Don Fair
The Oregon baseball team
took Friday the 13th, a hitting
slump, and the Oregon State
nine in stride yesterday as the
Ducks posted a 7-6 ten-inning
triumph over the Beavers at
The victory puts the Webfoots
back into a first place deadlock
with WSC in the division flag
chase. The Ducks and Beavers will
do a repeat contest at Corvallis this
JOHNNY Kovenz’s blistering
single over the outstretched glove
of the OSC first baseman, scored
Don Dibble, provided Oregon with
its winning run, in the first extra
inning contest in' the league. The
game took three hours to complete.
After the Beavers had rallied
with two runs in the ninth to knot
the count 6-6, the Kirschmen stak
ed everything in that 10th frame
for the win. Homer Brobst, who re
lieved Mel Krause in the ninth, re
ceived credit for his third decision
against no defeats.
Dibble started the winning rally
by drawing a walk from the third
Aggie pitcher. Left-hander Bob
Stolz. With two strikes on him,
Walt ICirsch laid down a beautiful
sacrifice moving Dibble to second.
NORM HENWOOD, hitting for
Gene Rose, was purposely passed.
Then Chuck Strader, pinch batting
for Brobst, forced Henwood for the
second out of the inning, Dibble
moving to third.
This set the stage for Kovenz’s
game winning blow, as with a one
ball, two strike he golfed a low out
side curve solidly to rightfield for
the tell-tale climax.
The Beavers bunched three hits
for three runs in the fourth stanza
and an early lead, but Oregon
countered with five tallies in its
half of the inning on only two hits.
OREGON anted its lead to 6-3
two frames later.
The Ducks had a fearful after
noon at the plate with only five
hits, but took good advantage of
11 walks and three wild pitches.
OSC catcher Frankie Roelandt
gave a pretty good indication why
he is leading the league with a bet
ter than .550 swat mark. The pow
erful backstop punched three solid
hits in four tries to move far ahead
of the pack in the bat race.
