    Frosh Butcher
Albany, Lose
To Eugene High
Coach Marv Rasmussen’s Frosh
baseball team made an impiessive
1950 debut last Friday by wallop
ing Albany High School, 15-4, but
found the tables turned Saturday
as they suffered a 9-3 setback at
the hands of the Eugene High
School Axemen.
In the Albany clash the prepsters
v/ent into an early lead when first
baseman Dick Gibbs laced out a
long leftfield homer which cleaned
the bases of two men who had
drawn walks, and gave Albany a
3-0 advantage.
The Ducklings came back in
their half of the first when Ed Co
hen singled to left, Jim Livesay
walked and Jim Barnes connected
for a long smash to drive in both
runners. They ended the inning
with a 5-3 lead when Dick McDan
iel rapped a sharp hit into right
eenterfield scoring Lee Alvord, who
had walked, and Barnes and Clar
ence Johanson.

Herb Cook, Frosh outfielder,

fifth when Cook singled, stole sec

balls and a powerful double off the
bat of Alvord belted home both Co
hen and Livesay. Baines drew a
walk, followed by a single by Al

By 10-2 in First Setto
Oregon’s 1950 track and field
team, rated as one of the greatest
in the history of the school, rolled
up a resounding 10-to-2 victory ov
er Oregon State in the 21st annual
relays on Hayward Field Saturday.
It was the first time since 1942 that
the Ducks have upended their arch
intrastate rivals from Corvallis.
Coach Doc Swan’s invading Beav
ers were able to salvage only the
high jump and shuttle Hurdles from
the meet.
The Webfoot 440-yard relay team
of Bill Fell, Mitch Cleary, A1 Bul
lier, and Dave Henthorne estab
lished a new record in the opening
track event by touring the Hay
ward oval 0.3 second faster than
the previous mark set in 1932. The
Ducks’ record shattering time was
:42.3 seconds.
Rasmussen Misses Record
George Rasmussen, Oregon’s ace
vaulter, opened the current season
by trying to up the Hayward Field
record in the vault. The reddish
haired senior from Bend pushed the
bar up to 14 feet without a miss,
then sent the bar at 14 feet 5 inches,
one inch above the present record
set by George Varhoff in 1937. Ras
mussen cleared the bar easily, but
struck it with his wrist and hand
during the descent.
It was the tremendous show of
depth strength which Webfoot
coach Bill Bowerman paraded be
fore the estimated 2000 spectators
that made triumph so onesided.
Surprise Duck victories came in the
four-mile, discus, and the javelin.
Bowerman’s crew annexed the
four-mile, run as a cross-country
race, when highly regarded Beaver
distance man George Fullerton
failed' to finish full route. Big Bob
Anderson, still stiff from his foot
ball warfare last fall, dumped Len
Rinearson for the first time in their
dual discuss competition. Only an
inch separated the two men’s
marks as Anderson took first place
with a toss of 140 feet 7 inches
while Rinearson’s best throw was
140 feet 6 inches.
The Beavers took the shuttle
hurdles by default when Duck an
chorman Tom Joyce lost his stride
and went around a hurdle. Joyce
went on to win the race but was
disqualified later.
The only other Oregon State vic
tory came in the high jump. Ken
Elliott, Northern Division cham
pion, leaped 6 feet 2 inches to lead
his teammates. Dave Kolden and
Woodley Lewis were the Webfoots’
top men in this event. Both cleared
5 feet 10 inches before dropping
