Two No-hit Gaines
In IM Softball Play
By Doug While
Two no-hit bnllgames highlight
ed the intramural softball action
af a sunny Wednesday afternoon.
Bob Hinman's shutout victory for
Cherney hall over Hunter was the
atiorc impressive of the two. but
on the books George Zupan of
"Theta Chi did just as well in his
7 to 3 no-hitter against Philadel
The other contests saw Phi
Kappa Sigma come out on top of
Bhi Gamma Delta 5 to 1; Sigma
Ku defeat Phi Sigma Kappa 5 to
2; Chi Psi down Sigma Phi Epsi
l«n 6 to 4; and Beta Theta Pi win
a tight one from Kappa Sigma 4
Cherney Wallops Hunter
Cherney hall had an all around
**ig day of it Wednesday, pound
tag out 17 runs, plus receiving the
stellar efforts of Hinman and his
patching chores. Eleven of those
jrims came in the first stanza as
tee victors sent fourteen men to
the plate. Warren Porter took
credit for the loss for the losers,
and was replaced in the first in
T*ung by Reed King.
Strange would be the word for
the w ay George Zupan obtained Ills
*o-hitter for although he gave
up eight liases on balls and let
three runs come across for the
opponents, no Philadelphian ever
reached lease by virtue of a base
•tuu. The Theta Chi's themselves
only garnpred three hits while
amassing their seven run total.
One of the better played games
of the season took place between
Ptii Kappa Sigma and Phi Gamma
JUeita. The former, behind the ef
forts of Gene Beck and the home
j.un clouting of Art Berg, sent
five runs across the platter to the
13th & Hilyard
858 Pearl St.
Fiji's lone counter. That one run
occurred in the first half of the
seventh inning when Sam Skillcrn
connected for a round tripper. The
losing pitcher for the Fijis was
Ball's Homer Tremendous
Ken Bali of Beta Theta Pi hit
what some of the IM oldtimers
consider to he the farthest home
run in Oregon softball history.
Facing Tom Novikoffs Kappa Sig
slants he parked a line drive up
on top of the roof of the Hayward
Field stands! That was just one
of the four runs the Betas man
aged to get in their 4 to 2 win
over Kappa Sigma. A1 Mann was
the winning chucker in this contest
while Novikoff took the loss.
Getting two runs in each of the
first two innings, Sigina Xu down
ed Phi Sigma Kappa 5 to 2. It
was mainly through the stylish
slants of Jack McBee that the
Sigma N'us managed to take the
contest. Dave Mikkelson took the
rap for the loss.
Last but not least in the softball
action was the game between Chi
Psi and Sigma Phi Epsilon. The
Chi Psis started out like a house
on fire, scoring five runs in the
initial frame of play. That was too
much for southpaw Ekstrom of
Sig Ep. for although he pitched
well from that point until the
end of the game, his mates were
unable to glean more than four
counters from the offerings of Ted
Dunbar. Chi Psi hurler.

For Spring Drill
Encased in a heavy cast, but
able to move under his own power,
Head Coach Hen Casanova put in
his first appearance at Oregon's
spring football practice Wednes
The greying mentor returned
Wednesday by train from San
Jose, California, where he has been
resting after an operation for re
moval of a spinal disc performed
Casanova rode to the practice
field in a station wagon, and
emerged with one cast on his back,
and another on his right leg. He
moved about fiom lineman to
backs, and told the 60-odd grid
hopefuls that he was pleased with
their enthusiasm and hustle.
Wednesday marked the third
scheduled drill out of tile 20 al
lowed by the NCAA. For the first
time, some live body-contact
scrimmage was on the agenda.
The final thirty minutes of the
hour and three quarter session was
occupied liy running several
ground plays against a regular ;
defensive forward wall with line
The timing was naturally rough
after the long winter lay-off, al
though several backs ran hard.
Offensively, line blocking also left
something to be desired.
Novikoff Looks Good
Tom Novikoff, the fullback
mainstay of the 1901 VVebfoots,
picked up his form quickly, and
looked impressive at his rushing
Farrel Albright, a freshman who
perfoimed for Coach Bill Bower
man's JV outfit last season also
flashed potent running in the short
but rough scrimmage.
In the line, taekles Charlie Laird
and Don Hedgepeth, guards Ken
Sweitzer and .John Keed, plus end
Hal Reeve, all looked effective.
Sweitzer has been shifted from end
to guard In an attempt to bolster
the talent-shy middle of the line.

In Cougar Meet
By Ron Ricketts
When the Washington State's
Cougars come to town Saturday
if will be for the 18th encounter
between Oregon and WSC track
squads. The Ducks have managed
to win only six of the 17 previous
meets, the 1951 engagement going
to the Cougars, 08 2/3 to 02 1/3.
Several meet marks are in jeop
ardy judging by the capabilities
and previous performances of some
of the Webfoot thinclads. Among
those records most likely to be
erased by Oregon trackmen are
the two-mile run mark of 9:43.0
set by WSC's Dick Paeth in 1919,
the mile relay standard set by the
Cougar team of Millard, Richard
son, Deck and Elsehen in 1951 with
a time of 3:18.2, and the javelin
record of 220 feet 1/8 inch set
in 1910 by Oregon’s Boyd Brown.
Ducks Strong in Two-Mile
Wayne Reiser’s second place
finish behind the record-breaking
run of Washington's Denny Myer
in the two-mile jaunt puts him in
the category of a potential rec
ord-beater. Veteran distance man
Fred Turner is also capable of
knocking over the two-mile mark.
