Ay, folut WltUty
lu- University of Oregon lias on its baseball team this year1
two freshmen. This in itself is not such an astonishing fact,
1,111 " ,u‘n one considers that both of these freshmen will almost
sunk win their letters in the sport, it becomes more interest
\\ hen one further examines the situation, he discovers that
these two individuals have already gained their letters in
other sports, and that if they letter in baseball, they will be the
two first athletes in the recent history of University of Oregon
athletics to win two letters in major sports in their freshman
Shaw and Bottler
I lie two baseballers now under consideration are George
Shaw and Ron Bottler. Shaw, a four sport standout from Grant
high school in Portland, lettered in football last term, while
at thi‘ same time setting a new NCAA record for pass inter
Bottler, a first year man from Roosevelt high school in Port
land. was a steady player on coach Bill Borcher’s varsity bas
ketball team this year. "Botts” was one of the best defensive
men on the squad. The fact that he drew the job of guarding
!• rank Guisness in the Washington series is evidence enough
of his ability.
1 wo sport athletes arc reasonably plentiful on the University
of Oregon campus this year. Head basketball coach Bill Bor
chcr was a two-sport letterman while attending Oregon as he
received awards in both football and basketball.
Track Draws Footballers
A glance at the Oregon track roster reveals that the first
ciiidcrman in the alphabetized li-t is 1 ed Anderson, an accomp
li'hcd -140 man. '1 ed saw a lot of action on coach I.en Casa
nova's gridiron squad this year.
Continuing down the track roster, we come to the names of
’I ommy Edwards and Bill bell, both of whom were members
of the < )regon backfield group last fall. Fell is currently win
ning da>h laurels for the track squad, while Edwards lends his
efforts to the broad jump event.
Big Chet Noe, one of the mainstays of this year’s Duck hoop
squad, has been working out on the field all spring term, and
he shows promise of developing into an excellent shot-putter.
Two other trackmen who should make names for themselves
in the future are Jim Jones, a shot-putter, and Dean Van
Ueuven, who is working in the discus event. Both were starters |
on the JV football team this year.
More Iwo-sport Stars
. On the baseball roster, we notice the name of Don Siegmund.
ace hurler for Don Kirsch’s diamond squad. Siegmund was a
three sport performer in high school here in Eugene, but has
confined his collegiate efforts to basketball and baseball.
Ron Phillips, another three-sport athlete, hails from Roose
velt high school where he played football, basketball, and base
ball. Since coming to the University, Phillips has engaged in
both football and baseball.
Three members of the junior varsity baseball squad who have
seen action in other fields of athletics are Paul Byhre, Farrell
Albright, and Don Hedgepeth, llyhre was a member of the
IV basketball team. Albright and Hedgepeth spent fall term
on the football field, with Hedgepeth making the starting
eleven at the end of the season and receiving his letter.
Another letterman who participates in more than one sport
is Barney Holland. Holland lettered in basketball this year, and
also saw some action on the gridiron under coach Hen Casa
At Least He's Entertaining
To lake a look at the recent Washington State baseball series,
the picture that sticks most in our mind is that of Buck Bailey,
WSC baseball mentor running in queer little bounds from the
bench to a position squarely in front of one of the umpires.
How many times that action was duplicated by Bailey (.lur
ing bis stay in Eugene we do not know. However Bailey’s ac
tions lead to a reasonable doubt that he is actually as worked
up as he seems to indicate by his appearance.
< Whatever is Buck’s purpose, lie added interest to the games
for the t.wo hundred Oregon students who sat along the third
base line purposely to hear the stout coach s remarks.
His 'Best Ever'
The University of Oregon Web
foots closed out their eighth day
of spring football practice with a
20-minute scrimmage on the prac
tice turf Wednesday afternoon.
The Duck coaching staff was well
pleased v/ith some aspects of the
Assistant Coach Jack Roche
summed up the elation In praising
Hal Dunham, the Ducks’ kenior
ijuurterhack: "I have never seen
him look better. His passes—and
they were long ones—were right
where they should have been.”
Dunham, who was the number
one Oregon field general last year,
has looked good throughout the
spring. He failed to measure up to
his capabilities last fall b,ut came
along with a rush in the final
games against the University of
California and Oregon State.
