Practice Game Staged With
Salem High Squad Here
Intercollegiate baseball will
get under Way this week, with the
Willamette university team sched
uled to play Oregon State college
two games at Corvallis. Friday
A practice game with the Salem
high school squad Saturday after
noon revealed that the Willam
ette team will be stronger in
fielding than for several seasons
Adams on second base. 'Hoot"
Gibson at short and Houk on third
show indications of developing
into an unusually fast combina

capped by limited opportunity to
practice, and Braley may run him
a close race.

and McGinn apparently are th)
class of the outfield candidates,
with selection between them de
pending on the opposing pitcher.
First base is still an open ques
tion, with Scales, Steelhammer
and Troxel tarnishing hot compe
tition for Welch, who has held
down this position for two years.
The Girod brothers are possibil

base. McMutlfn may be used

field. Pitching and hitting are, ia
Coach Keene's opinion, the un

batsman, all fire of the pitchers

but what they will do against
college players can only be dis
covered by experience.

Daring Cold Weather
With cold weather prevailing.
Keene hasn't allowed the pitchers
to cut loose as yet, but with five .
men, all boasting considerable
experience, it is likely that a de

against the high school were Led

Majpvski, Kiminkl, and Cushion.
The hazard of working the
pitchers hard in cold weather has
also militated against batting

opportunity to show what they
can do with curve balls and a
change of pace, but judging from
