f'i Although the -breather forecast
: for today is "showery," prospects
are that most of the ,. baseball
fields In this section, will-be in
good enough condition ' that the
Cascade league and the Mld-Wil-
. lamette league can open up in ear
aest on their 1932 baseball races.
The Cascade league was sched
uled to" start last Sunday, but be-
; cause of rain only two of the
games were -played. Today Is the
"' regularly- scheduled opening for
thfcj Mid-Willamette league.'
?n the Cascade games last Sun
day Jefferson beat Lebanon 4 to
1 and Brownsrille set Scio down
7 to 4, both scores Indicating good
early season ball. Lebanon won In
the south section last year and- is
reported as baring the same pitch
er this season. - -
Jefferson is going up against a
tough team today In the Turner
outfit Scio and Lebanon meet to
day so one is sure to even up
for last Sunday's defeat If the
weather permits, r -
''The game between Woodburn
and 'Amity should draw a big
crowd. Doby Wood who pitched
for; Willamette last year is the
chucker for Amity according to
reports and his cousin, a hard-hit-ling
shortstop, Is also in the line
up. This pair would put punch
Into any of the league dubs.

of the 1932 marathon toward Ten-

At this early stage, of the race
aH f ans . are usually optimistic
even on the bandwagons of perpet
ual tailenders. 1 If the home team
cops the first series, the fans talk
pennant. . IX ue Jiome team loses,
they make ' excuses and explain
that the Tictorious opponents are
admittedly a strong "spring team."
Sometimes an expert observer
can really get a good line on
team s pennant possibuiaes even in
the first week of play. But it
would require ! the services of an
oracle of Delphi to prognosticate
the final standing of individual
players in the batting averages,
fielding, yes 4nt not batting.
Once upon :a time, in a rain-
soaked, bleak army camp, we

Delay to Mean Peterson's
Appearance 'on : Mound ;
'. ; ' ' In Contest Here
The Willamette - Oregon State
baseball game was ealled off Sat
urday afternoon because of rain
It will be played the first of this
week with Andy Peterson occupy
ing the- mound before the home
crowd for the first time this sea
son. Peterson started the season Fri
day, against O. S. C. in the most
auspicious style of any of his open
ings.' In nine innings he fanned
21 men,' getting 23 for the whole
game. This is the largest strike
out record that he ever made.
The Bearcat team worked well
for the first game and though one
or two of the errors were , costly,
bobbles were searce.-Tbls is espe
cially encouraging since the team
had three freshmen, on It through
out the entire contest.
The new men acquitted them
selves well in the opening game.
"Pete" McCann caught a nice
game and although the Staters
stole bases on him freely. It was
not all his fault because the bases
were not always' covered speedily
and to the best advantage, fre
quently forcing -him to hold fire
an Instant before throwing. -He
caught Biancone off third base for
a putout while a man was walking
Ray Wood yard Is another fresh
man who played and he proved to
be unusually successful as a lead
off man. The first time up he got
a walk from Woodard, the Beaver
hurler, and also took a free ticket
on two subsequent trips to bat.
Norman Swanson started the
game at first base and played his
position, well, but was replaced by
Egleston in the middle of the
game because George Erickson
was sent in to pinch-hit in Swan
son's place. Egleston also played
a peppery game at first.
The outfield, handled by Gus
Moore, Walter Erickson and Char
ley Gill, was "particularly well cov
ered. Not a single error was chalk
ed against the outfielders and
each did some pretty fielding. -
With a little more infield prac
tice, baserunnlng practice .and
elimination of base stealing, the
Bearcats will have a smooth-working
team. The hitting was as good
as could he expected against the
Orange pitching and will probably
Klamath Wins in

won its first major traek and field
title today on Modoc field by de
feating a field of 12 high schools
in the southern Oregon-northern

J ty cv
Tuesday night's wrestling mate hi
between - Henry Jones of Provo
Utah, and the "Duke of Barring
ton, Pat Flnnegan of Springfield,
O., should settle one question lav
the minds of .wrestling fans.
That question Is: "Can Jonee
win his matches without rough,
tactics?' There is no doubt that
Jones can win from a great many
grapplers with Just straight wres
tling, but Pat Flnnegan believes
Jones cannot subdue him without
reverting to slugging, kicking and
Jones is confident of Tils ability
to whip Flnnegan under any and
all rules and readily greed to the
match. In their first meeting here
each had one fall and the bout
finally went to Jones when he
kicked Flnnegan In the solar-plexus
and placed a body press on him
while the colorful little Irishman
was gasping for breath... -
4 The other fall that Jones took!
earoe close on -the heels of a slug
he gave Flnnegan . on the chin,
starting him on the downward -track.
The "Duke" took the first
fall with a surfboard hold. It was
following the first fall that Jones
started his other work.
Another match on the card
which promises to be a natural
is between Art O'Reilly of Eugene
and "Prof. Newton of Oregon
City. This will be a finish match'
with the one getting two falls first
Vera Harrington of Portland
will be here' to referee the bouts.
