CAPTURE BIG MEET
Hayward's Eugene Boys Car
ry Away 63 Points to Ore
gon Aggies' 261-2 Score.
BELLAH BREAKS RECORD
'Moose" SCuirhead Leaps Into Fame
by Jumping 6 Feet 1 1 hC Indies,
Tying Pacific Coast Record,
New Northwest Mark.
BT EARL. R, GOODWIN.
Oregon's Jack-rabbity athletes cap
tured the 12th annual indoor track and
field classics in the Columbia Unlver
sity coliseum yesterday In a meet that
was full' of sensations.
Bill Hayward's 'varsity boys scored
63 points, the Oregon Aggies 26, and
Multnomah Athletic Club 20 Nearly
a dozen schools did not score.
The thrills were furnished by a suc
cession of record-breaking perform
ances on the part of the collegians. Sam
Bellah, of the Multnomah Club, estab
lished what is believed to be a new
world's indoor pole vault record by
clearing the sticks at 12 feet 7 inches.
High Jump Record Mew.
"Moose" Muirhead, of Oregon, Jumped
his way into fame by doing the high
jump at 6 feet inches. This ties the
Pacific Coast indoor record held by
George L. Horlne, of Stanford, former
world's champion, and is a new North
west indoor and outdoor record. The
outdoor record is & of an inch under.
Two other Columbia indoor records
were shattered and one the half mile,
was tied. Lee Reynolds negotiated the
8S0 in 2:00 4-5.
Chester Huggins clipped four sec
onds from his former mark in the mile
run'by doing it in 4:28 2-5, and Wal
lace Kadderly did the quarter mile in
52 1-5 seconds, one second better than
his teammate Walters covered the same
distance in the 1914 gathering.
Raee Is Sensational.
Sensation followed sensation. The
race for the tape in the mile run was
one well worth witnessing. Hobgood,
Coast champion two-miler and sup
posedly the Oregon Aggies' mainstay
in the mile, took the pole and kept
far half the distance. He covered the
first half mile in two minutes and ten
seconds, but the pace was too much
for his constitution. He was passed
by both Huggins, of the winning com
bination. and the Aggies' captain, Lee
Reynolds, winner of the annual half
mile event. Later Reynolds took the
lead, but Huggins went to the fore
after one lap had been traversed. Juet
as Starter Hahn fired the gun for the
last lap, both leaders started a terrific
sprint which lasted for almost 200
yards. Huggins nosed out the midget
Corvallis boy and established a new Co
lumbia indoor record of 4:28 2-5.
The performances of Eiton Loucks,
of Oregon, were such as to cause a
great deal of comment among those
present. He is a regular 440-yard man,
but Coach Bill Hayward switched him
to the 220-yard dash. By this move
first place went to the Eugene squad
instead of the Agiries.
Wallace Kadderly and Captain Lee
Reynolds were the best and most con
sistent performers for the Oregon
Aggies. Each scored eight points
"Moose" Muirhead, former local Colum
bia interscholastic star, was high man
of the Portland classic. He annexed
two first places and tied for a second,
scoring in all 12 points. Sam Bellah
was the winged "M" best bet, as he
was fourth in the meet with 7yi mark
ers to his credit.
Record Mark Missed.
Every event with the exception of the
half-mile relay was all that could be
expected.- In the windup event of the
I day the University of Oregon quartet
was given the decision by default,
neither the Oregon Aggies nor Mult
nomah Club entering any opposition. As
a result the boys from the state insti
tution ran against the present record,
but missed it by one second.
More than 1500 wildly excited fans
and fanettes were on hand to witness
what is considered to be the most prom
inent event of its kind west of the Mis
