TRACK TEAM BUSY.
Husky Bunch Out for Honors
Things are doing these days
out n the OAC athletic field,
where every evening "about 140
men are out for practice, striv
ing for honors in the various
track events of the coming sea
Next Saturday is the Columbia
meet at Portland, where for the
past two years the OA.C men
have taken the honors of the meet
with ease. A victory this year,
however, is hardly anticipated by
the local lads, owing to the loss
of a large number of their strong
men who last year aided in win
ning the victory.
While no definite statement is
made, it is probable that those
who will go to the Columbia
meet will be Smithson, Beldec,
Cathey, Davolt, Greenhaw,
Beach, Swann, Finn and Good
rich. In the various events, the
practice is divided up about as
50-yd dash Smithson, Cathey,
220-yd dash Smithson, Cath-
5-mile Greenhaw, Davolt.
Mile run Davolt, Goodrich.
Shot put Finn.
High jump Smithson, Swann.
Broad jump Belden, Swann.
Pole vault Swann.
Relay Greenhaw, Beach,
Out of last year's team OAC
has lost Floyd Williams, the best
220 and 440-yard man on the
Pacific coast, and "Fat" Walker
in the shot put and hammer
throw, who defeated Tom'- Mc
Donald in the latter event last
Another loss is Stout, perhaps
the best discus man in' Oregon,
and Abraham, another discus
expert. Shepard in the hammer
throw and Leonard in the dis
tajices, also Bower. . in the shot
put and distances and Steiwer in
the distances all these are de
cided losses that are keenly felt at
OAC this year.
There is much good new ma
terial in the bunch that is out
daily lor practice under the di
rection of "Dad" Trine, the pop
ular trainer who may always be
depended upon for iesults from
his men. Among the new fel
lows who are making excellent
progress and who promise to
make good, are noticed Dunlap,
the big football guard, and Tyler,
in the hammer throw, Chapman
and McKenzie in the high jump,
Goodrich and Winnitred in the
distances, Fox in the 440 and
Hall in the hommer throw.
While OAC may not win at
Columbia, there is every reason
to believe that later on in the
season they will be heard irom in
the usual way, and that victory
will perch on their banner in
many a desperate track conflict.
Withycombe Popular in Linn.
The closing ot the primary-
campaign brings to the people of
the state the realization that
good and true tnen will have the
nominations tor the several state
offices and especially is it evident
at this time that for the highest
place on the ticket a man will be
nominated who has not his super
ior in the state, and who will
defeat the democratic candidate
for governor and give Oregon a
state government such as the state
has never had in its entire
history. This man is Dr. James
Withycombe of Corvallis. Nearly
nis enure inetime nas L)r.
Withycombe spent in the state of
Oregon, during that time he ha
been closly connected with the
state and has seen the Pacific
coast section grew into one of
the richest and most progressive
farniipjf.and stock growing com-
munities. In fact, in this
growth he has had an important
part . As director of the experi
ment station at the OAC, Dr.
James Withycombe has done
much toward bringing about
these favon ble results in the
state, and his tireless work in
the interest of that institution
and the farmers of the state have
made him one ot the best
known and most popular men
in Oregon. This wide popular
ity in the state will stand Dr.
Withycombe in good stead when
on primary day the republicans
cast their votes for their choice
for governor, and he will receive
generous and hearty support in
every city, town and hamlet.
