    Trackmen Nip Huskies;
Relay Decides Result
By Ron Ricketts
A record-breaking performance
i \ the mile relay staved off a late
Washington rally and gave the
University of Oregon track team
t> 69’- - 6’j victory in a Northern
division dual meet at Hayward
field Saturday.
The Huskies, behind 57'..'- 321
at the end of 10 events, swept both
the discus and the 220-yard low
hurtles and took first in the broad
jump to narrow the Duck lead to
three points with only the mile
relay left It looked as if Oregon’s
cause might be lost when Jack
Hutchins, running the third leg of
the relay for the Ducks, was pass
ed and' fell four yards behind the
Huskies’ Ken Morgan in the back
Anderson Comes Through
But the crowd came to its feet
with a roar when Hutchins came
■out of the south turn, which is
obscured by a grandstand, leading
Morgan by four yards. Ted Ander
son. Webfoot anchorman was chal
tenged by Pete Dufour for the first
300 yards but Anderson met the
test and broke the tape three yards
ahead of his rival.
, The time was 3:13.6 which is a
■new meet record, breaking the ohi
mark of 3:19.7 set by Washington
in 1937, and also a new Oregon
record, topping the time of 3:20.6
jset by Burr, Marr. Bower man. and
Molrr.an in 1933.
Oregon's freshman Wayne Reis
er made a major contribution to
-another record as he pressed
Husky Denny Myer to a 9:26.8 In
ttie two-mile run. This was a new j
_»neet record, surpassing the old
standard of 9:34.4 set by Clarence
*431 of Oregon in 1930. Reiser made
a race of it for the first six laps
^fcut tired under the strain of the j
^ace set by the more-experienced i
Hyer and finished 40 yards back.
Both. P-iy Packwood and Ed
Robison broke their personal rec
ords as they finished one-two for
the Ducks in the pole vault. Pack
wood vaulted 13 feet 6'j inches
while Robison cleared the bar at
13 feet.
Fell Takes Point Honors
The high honors of the meet
were Bill Fell of Oregon with 11
points and Washington's George
Widenfelt with 11 points. Fell j
grabbed firsts in the 100 and 220- j
yard dashes and ran a leg on the ,
relay team while the versatile
Widenfelt took firsts in the high
jump and broad jump and nabbed
a third in the javelin.
In the high jump Widenfelt and
Emery Barnes had quite a con
test. Widenfelt, an exponent of an j
unorthodox scissors style, finally
edged Barnes, who uses the west
ern roll, clearing the bar at 6 feet ,
3% inches on his second try.
Broad junipers Tommy Edwards
and Jack Smith tied at ‘21 feet
11 inches but the effort couldn’t
match Widenfelt’s leap of '22 feet
6ii inches. On Ids second to last
try, Edwards made a jump of well
over 22 feet but a scratch nullified
the distance.
The pro-Oregon crowd emitted a
groan when the Ducks Larry
Blunt, who was running second
at the time, tripped over me mi
omi to last hurdle in the 220-yard
lows. Blunt had previously finished
second in the 120-yard high hur
dles. Tile Huskies' Frank Morris.
