    Oregon Tops Linfield, 6-2 In Opener;
Krause Allows One Hitjrln Fivejlnnings
Sugura Paces Hitters
Portland U Today's Foe
A couple of handle hits and some errors at third base enabled
Oregon to make their initial baseball effort of the season a 6-2
triumph over Linfield College at Howe field yesterday. The
Ducks will meet Portland University here-today at 3 p.m.
With Mel Krause and Dewaync Johnson turning in superior
mound performances, Oregon took advantage of lapses in the left
side of Linfield’s infield in scoring
'six runs on five hits. The Ducks
scored twice in the second inning,
saw Linfield tie it up in the sixth,
and then went ahead in the seventh
when shortstop Ray Coley got on
via a two base error by Linfield’s
j)itcher Rouw, wont to third on an
infield out, and scored on an error
by Blakeslee, the visitor’s third
It was an error by Blakeslee that
opened the door foi Oregon in the
bottom of the second. With Mel
Krause and Linficld’s righthander
Nauman matching curve balls, Col
ey got on when one of Nauman’s
pitches plunked him in the side. He
raced to third when Blakeslee took
a roller by Oregon’s Johnny Jones
and threw it into r ight field. Joe
Sugura then hit one off the bat
handle into center field to send
home the first two runs of the ball
The two starting pitchers then
blanked the hitters over the rest of
the first five innings. In the fourth,
Clyde Reed looped' a little liner that
(bed between the mound and the
shortstop. That was the only hit off
Krause. I nthe fifth, with one out,
Mel walked Zuleger, and Jerry Mc
Neil, but he bore down to get Burr
on a pop to first base, and struck
01 iL hurler Nauman.
In the sixth, Dewayne Johnson,
the big left hander, came on for the
locals. With one away he walked
Clyde Reed. Turning on the steam,
Johnson struck out Bob Martin, but
made one a little too good for Hal
sey, the visiting first baseman. Hal
sey lashed one down the left field
line for two bases, sending Reed to
third. Halsey lashed one down the
left field' lin efor two bases, send
ing Reed to third. The plate then
disappeared as Johnson walked the
next three men in a row. Plum, a
long ball hitting catcher ended the
inning by popping to second,
After that, Dewayne settled
down to pitch some good baseball.
In the seventh inning, he walked
Rouw but got out of trouble when
Rosenfield’s bunt turned into a soft
line drive that spelled double-play.
Reed then walked and stole second
base, but Coley handled Bob Reed’s
Three more runs pattered across
in the bottom of the eighth as the
Ducks exploited Blakeslee to the
utmost. Nelson slashed a single
through his legs to open the inning.
Nelson raced around to score as
the luckless third baseman picked
up Stratton’s bunt and threw it
over first base. Kimball then com
pleted the ignominy of the man at
the hot corner by popping up, and
having Blakeslee lose it in the sun.
He reached second, and scored on a
sacrifice and Norval Richey’s in
field single.
Plum caused a mua nurry in the
ninth, when he opened with a long
double to left. With Jim Hanns
working liesurely in the bull pen,
Johnson smoked a third strike past
pinch hitter Alseben, got Rosen
field to roll to short, and closed by
blowing a third strike past Clyde
75 Greet Aiken At
First Spring Practice
The fat men got thin and the
thin men got thinner Monday
afternoon on the varsity practice
lot as Head Coach Jim Aiken ran
7!) football candidates through a
two hour workout.
Johnny McKay and Dick Wil
kins assisted Aiken in working
with the offensive element of the
team, while Jim Berwick and Bob
Me Lure handled the defensive line
and Jerrie Lillie the offensive line.
Aiken, who described the first
day of spring drills as being sorne
v, hat confusing, plans to keep the
same coaching assignments for to
day’s practice which will get under
way at 3:30.
The Oregon head coach was
1 Sensed with some performances
and the eagerness, but dismayed
nt the greenness after the first
day drills. He is counting on a vet
eran line, with tIre exception of
t e right end position.
Gentleman Jim mentioned Jake !
V illiams and Emery Barnes as
showing up well the first day. He
a'so commented on Rookie Chet ,
Noe's possibilities of developing
ii to a first rate pass receiver.
Other former Frosh who drew
favorable comment were Monte
Frethauer, end from Portland.
Guard Delmar Clemens, Burns, and
C trl Ervin, Corpus Christi, Tex.
Aiken also praised Don Eldart.
guard from Aberdeen, Wash., Tom
Lyon, back, who hails from Long
Beach, Calif., and Darmin Farns
worth, a transfer who played under
Aiken at the University of Nevada.
Jim refrained from mentioning
returning varsity lettermen whom
he described as carrying a good
part of the load through the early
drills until the newcomers catch
on to the plays.
Dick Salter and Gus Knickerehm
have been excused from practice to
try out with the baseball squad,
Chuck Missfeldt is out of action
due to his jaw injury, and Hale
Paxton probably will not turn out.
In all, the turnout of 75 men in-!
cludded 12 lettermen, six non-let-1
termen varsity members, 2-1 mem
bers of the 1949 Frosh squad, and !
33 newcomers.
GEORGE RASMUSSEN top pole vaulter of the Northern Division
is pointing toward a good start against Oregon State in his efort to
clear 15 feet this season. Since his event has been added to the Ore
gon-OSC relays, it will give George an opportunity to face league com
petition a week earlier than usual. Dual meets officially open with

These were the stark words that
stared every Wobfoot cinderman in
the face as he picked up his train
ing board and prepared to go
through his Monday afternoon
workout. Yes the Webfoots wiili
meet the Beavers in the annual
Oregon-OSC relays here Saturday,
but the relays this year will re
semble its forerunners only slight
This year the meet will be over
the full 12 events that make up the
regular Northern Division track
‘meet. In previous years, the annual
relays consisted of six track events,
the 440, 880, mile, two-mile, four
mile, and shuttle hurdles, plus two
field events, the high jump, and
shot put. In Saturday’s contest, the
rest of the field events, the pole
vault, discus, javelin, and broad
jump, have been added to the test
the full strength of each team.
The addition of the new events
bolstered the position of Coach Bill
Bowerman's Ducks considerably
since two of their strongest field
events this season will be the pole
vault and the broad jump. In addi
tion to this, the Webfoots have the
outstanding individual javelin
thrower of the Northern Division in
sophomore Chuck Missfeldt.
In preparation for the meet,
Bowerman sent his men through a
comparatively rugged afternoon of
