COLLEGE IS VICTOR.
Over University in Field, and Track ty
'- , Decisive Score Records -
The annual meet on field and
track between OAC and U. of O.,
teams Saturday resulted in a de
cisive defeat for the University.
The score was 78 to 44 and with
the contest repeated, with the same
men pitted against each other the
figure would be slightly , heavier
for the victors. A fall by Ctthey
in the hurdles when he was winning
second place cost the Aggies three
points, and in another instance or
two the best strength of the OAC
men did not appear on account of
As was expected records went
glimmering in some of the events.
Greenhaw smashed the Northwest
record in the half, making the dis
tance in 2:02 1:5. The OAC relay
team lowered the Northwest record
in the mile relay to 3:33. The
time can be reduced by the same
team several seconds whenever the
occasicn requires. - In Saturday's
relay Greenhaw ran his quarter
mile in 51 seconds, which is one
fifth of a second better than the
Oregon record in that event.: In
the same event, Williams who had j
the last quarter to run, started out
to catch. Eugene's .third man and
make a mile while the Eugene run
ners should make three quarters.
It was an impossible feat, however
and Floyd slackened his pace some
what in the last stretch, but even
as it was his time for his .lap was
51 1-2. The other two men in the
relay team were Smithson and
Beach. - y
The University team took but
three first places. Hug got firsts
in the hammer and shot, and Miller
a first in the high jump. In the
quarter Williams, Beach and Green
haw shut the visitors out alto
gether, but a third place was allow
ed them on a claim that Greenhaw
fouled their man. Swann was an
easy winner for first place "in the
pole vault clearing the pole with
ease at every first trial and - giving
his friends confidence that he will
take the; same place at the state
In the hammer 'event Ralph
5hepard surprised his best friends
by tossing the metal 108 feet and
five inches, rendering ft almost
certain that OAC will Jget two
places.in the event in ;.tb;j,-,srat'e
meet at Salem. Dow Walker in
an exhibition throw sent yie ham
mer 126 1-2 feet, and Hug of U.
of O. in a similar effort threw the
hammer 128 feet'seven inches. The
contest for supremacy in this event
at Salem will be watched with in
terest all over the Northwest, for
the two champions are members of
a trio of the best men in the event
in the Northwest, the other being
McDonald of Washington.
In the sprints, Smithson and
Williams were not pushed enough
to make the lowering of records
necessary, or it would have been
done.. Smithson ran the low hur
dles within a fifth of a second of
the Northwest record, two watches
having actually caught' the time as
tying the Northwest record in that
event. " -. - . . ' - -."
Woodcock and Grafcam were out
of the OAC team' and Friessel and
Henderson out of the Eugene team.
Friessell, the Nevada immigrant,
did not participate. . In. was in
fact definitely and amicably under
stood between Manager Stimson
and Manager Whittlesey v that he
was not eligible and was not to
take part. The case was exactly
the same as that of Cathey : who
was kept out of the OAC team two
years ago by Eugene on the same
claim of ineligibility. .
The experts, Director. Trine
among them, have an accurate line
on the question-of what value Fries
sell would have been to the Univer
sity in the meet. They figure it
out that with the Nevadian parti
cipating, the score would have been
70 to 52. This is the way they do
it. In the 100 and 220, Friessel
would have taken third places. But
as it was, Moores of Engene took
them, so there would have been
nothing gained there. In the broad
jump, Friessel might have taken
first. As it was, OAC got six and
U. of O. three in that event. Con
ceding Friessel first, the .result
would have been, OAC, 3; U. of O.
6, an increase for Eugene of three
points. In the high r hurdles,
Friessel might have won first, but
it is doubtful. Concede it to him
however, and the score in that 'ev
ent, which was OAC, 5; U. of O.
4. would have been OAC,' 3, U. of
O, 6 a gain of two points for Eu
gene. In the low hurdles, there
suit would have '. been unchanged,
for Friessel can not beat Smithson
in that event and the score of OAC
5, U. of O, 4, in that event would
remain unchanged. In the high
jump, Friessel might have cut some
figure but it is doubtful. He was
unable to go more than five feet two
inches in the Eugene-Seattle meet.
Itf"brder to give them all the best
of it, that he would have won first
place. That would have given XL
of O. 8: OAC, 1. The score was
U. of O. 5; OAC, 4. The gain
for U. of O. would be 3'. The ag
gregate gain to Eugene 4ls a result
of Friesselism would have been as
shown above, 3 in the broad jump,
two in the hurdles, and three in the
high jump; total, 8. Add that to
the 44 they made, and their score
would have been, 52. Take the 8
from OACs score of 78 and the re
sult would be. 70. The summary
of events and places taken is as
follows: ... '
