Smashing the Order of
Willamette University, a noints:
Pacific University. 17: Universi
ty of Oregon. Oregon Agri
cultural College, 82 points, is the
unadorned tale 01 the mter-col-legiate
field meet Saturday at
Salem. A chapter devoted to the
performances of O. A. C. miprht
consistently be profusely embel
lished with "ifs," but thev are
not permitted in the story that
goes into history for future gen
erationsto consult. Furthermore,
Eugene requires ali the available
"its" to make a presentable stdrv
of her part in the meet, and in
the lieht of success we certain! v
can afford to present our stock of
excuses to the Eugene correspon
dents ana those Portland papers
which have so oresistentlv and
unjustly belittled the athletic
pretentions ot O. A. C.
it was unfortunate that so manv
of U. of O.'s best men were out
of form. Hug, for example, was
so ill that in the weight events
and the discus he was able to
take first places only. But other
U. 01 O. men came to the rescue
by taking second places in the
weights, thus in a measure, com
pensating for Mr. Hug's failure
to take both first and second. It
was evident to U. ot O. the day
before the meet that her best men
would not be able to do the work
on which she based her hope of
success. She could not realize
on Frissell, the eilded vellow
brick imported from Nevada, hp-
cause he had a "lacerated' ' muscle.
and would not, therefore, in all
probability, be able to take first
and second places in the dashes,
hurdles, broad and hieh lumps.
Then it was decided that for a
few first places the management
could not afford to "lacerate" the
tinsel of their treasure, and he
therefore did not enter any of, the
events except the broad jump, in
which he made merely an exhibi
tion effort. Henderson. U. of O..
was slated to take third and fourth
places in the events in which Fris
sell was to have first and second,
but he also was unfortunate in
having a sprained ankle, and
could not do the work assigned
him in the earlier calculations.
This was the first meet 'of the
Inter-Collegiate Amateur Athletic
Association of Oregon, since 1898.
The trophy to be awarded the
successful college team was a
handsome silver cup, and it has
been added : to the large collec
tion of other trophies at O. A. C.
However, in order to retain it
permanently a college must win
in three successive seasons. Med
als were also awarded to thosp
taking first and second places in
eacn event, ut these, O. A. &
secured fifteen. In this meet all
of the old I. A. A. A. records were
broken, excepting three, name
ly the high jump (5 feet
8 inches), held by Buck
ingham, O. U.; the shotput (41
feet a inches), held by Sanders,
W. U., and the hammer throw
(116 feet 1 inch),' held by Smith,'
U. of O.
A new Northwest record was
made by Greenhaw, of O. A. C,
in the half mile, having gone
the distance in 1:58 as against
the previous record of 2:03 held
by Edmunson of Idaho. This
was a remarkable event of the
meet. Both Greenhaw and Pe
terson of P. U. were know to be
fast and that the Northwest rec
ord was likely, to be broken, but
which of the two was the faster
it was difficult to predict. In the
test they ran toeether. leavin?
other contestants in the rear. As
they came into the last hundred
yard stretch. Peterson essayed. a
spurt but he was "all in." Green
haw thereupon lined out sbod and
strong and it was apparent that
he was master of the situation.
The O. A. C. boy had the race
in his sleeve through the last
quarter, and could easily have
beaten the time recorded.
Moores, U. of O., lowered the
Northwest record in the 220
hurdle, when he won in 35 and
3-5 seconds against the Drevious
record of 25 and 4-5 second, held
