sports to Whitman, this year and
Whitman won the football cham- ;

other conference school 'and took
the basketball and baseball titles.
It was Andy Peterson, whose
prowess as a moundsman' and
also as a hitter hss gained wide
prominence this year and set ma
jor league scouts on his trail,
who came through in the pinch
again Saturday at Walla Walla.
After hurling tight j ball and
pounding but a home run for the
deciding tally in the first game,
Peterson was called upon to toe
the rubber again in the third
game with only a day's rest. He
came through in a manner befit- -ting
