By Ma/UUt Meadow*,
I lie bright, sunny spring weather which has been in evidence
all term .seems to have imbued most members of the Oregon
coaching staff with an unusual amount of optimism regarding
their re.-pective chances in the Northern Division spring sports
As a matter of fact, no less than three of the coaches have
stated outright, in unprecedented fashion, that they have high
hopes of finishing at or near the top in conference competition.
So far only the track squad has demonstrated championship
potential, while insufficient results in the other sports prevents
any judgments from being made right now.
'I aking each one separately, let us begin with tennis. Karlv
in the season Coach Boh Laurence declared that he had a strong
team which could possibly end Washington’s long domination
of the net game. Then Bill Rose and Raul Willey turned up
temporarily ineligible for the Ducks’ only pre-conference match,
which they dropped by a 9-0 count to Portland's Multnomah
Tennis Team Looks Promising
However, Rose is expected t<> he in the Wehfoot lineup when
Oregon opens its ND play against Oregon State at Corvallis
this Saturday. I his newcomer, along with Jack Neer and letter
men Turn MacDonald, Don Xerass, and Xeil George, should
provide enough depth to defeat the Aggies, who did not win a
single set last Saturday against Washington.
In golf, Coach Sid Milligan is similarly confident of a suc
cessful spring. The Duck divoters thus far have a 2-0 record,
their latest victory being a 17-10 affair over a powerful Port
land U. team. The Wehfoot roster includes such veterans as
Bob Atkinson and Ron Clark, and backed by King Shanks, Don
Krieger, Fred Mueller, and Bud Cross.
Turning to track. Bill Bowcnnan has admitted his men are
contenders. Also, his fellow coaches in the league put him on
the spot early by rating Oregon as the top crew in the ND.
This forecast has been made to look good as far as dual meet
competition is concerned. The Duck cindermen have chalked
up cln-r wins over their two strongest opponents, Washington
and Washington State, and should have an easier time with
their remaining foes, Idaho and Oregon State.
Bowerman Needs Discus Man
However, the NI) tournament, to be held at Pullman on
May lb, will probably be as close as Stack Deck 5 on a hot
afternoon and the Oregon* will have to be at their best to cop
the meet. Powerman could use, among other items, a competent
discus thrower, but you can't have everything.
The Ducks are strong in the sprints, mile, mile relay, and
javelin, and if Emery Barnes, Hay Packwood, Don McClure,
and Wayne Reiser can come through in their events, Oregon
will be hard to beat in the finale.
'Phe N’D baseball standings places the Webfoots at the head
of the list, thanks to two wins over the Washington State Cou
gars. The Idaho squad also had a hand in this, boosting Ore
gon to the top by splitting a pair .of contests with Washington

Diamond boss Don Kirsch expects his team to be in the
struggle for the title, but all the XD entries seem evenly bal
anced and it should be a dogfight to the final game. Kirsch has
the batting power, as demonstrated by the 28 runs scored by
the Ducks last weekend, but lacks enough first-line hurlers.
Don Sicgmund, a prize southpaw, is the mainstay of the
• mound corps, with Bill Bottler right behind. Other starters will
be chosen from among Norm Forbes, Bill Mays, and Stan
i Anne. The latter gained credit for Oregon’s 13-inning decision
over WSC last Saturday.
Karl Averill, Duck third baseman, apparently was waiting
for the start of league play to show why he was chosen to the
[ College All-American baseball aggregation last year. Karl
I slammed three homers in the two-game series, including one
with the bases crammed, and accounted for a total of 12 RBI’s.
’ Bullet Pegs by Bottler
Catcher Ron Bottler also came up with heads-up perform
ances. the outstanding ones of which were his bullet-like throws
which twice nipped enemy runners on the bases to forestall
1 WSC threats. lie also contributed a home run to the first game
Web foot attack.
The next league action will take place in Eugene today and
Thursday when the heavy-hitting Vandals conclude their Will
amette Valley swing with a two game series. Oregon pitchers
will have to be sharp to halt the Vandals, who outslugged OSC,
A footnote on the Hayward Relays of last weekend: Med
,ford's Black Tornado, which won the annual high school
'classic; has entered the meet eleven times, and has compiled the
fabulous record of eight first place finishes and three seconds.
