anniversary here a year ago, Mrs. Erickson was a resident of Central Oregon for 37 years, coming from Linn County at the turn of the cent ury, when this part of t h e state was still a r a ngeland country and Bend was a stopping place for stockmen, far up on the Deschutes at the edge of a virginforest. Purchasing the Andrew Anderson place, Mr. and Mrs. Erickson settledon Bear Creek in 1900 and for many years operated a stock ranch in that community. Elizabeth Gould, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Alexander Gould, was born on a farm in Minnesota in 1856. Following her marriage to Charles H. Erickson in Kansas they moved to Portland. In Portland Erickson was the first

Baker's credentials were i mpressive. He led the n ation i n t o tal of f e nse w i t h 2,276 yards in 10 games, far ahead ofhis nearest competitor. His career total was second only to that of Drake's Johnny Bright, and he passed such great stars as Georgia's F rank Sinkwich an d Z e k e Bratkowski and TCU'S Davey O'Brien during the season. To top it off he led Oregon State to an 8-2 record in the regular season. The only Or e gon s ports event to c h allenge Baker's winning of the Heisman Trophy as the years top story was the University o f O r egon's victory in the National Collegiate track championships in Eugene last June. The Ducks, led by hurdler Jerry Tarr,mi ler Dyrol Burleson and sprinter Harry Jerome, ran off and left the rest of the teams. Third place in the voting went to another football item — the selection of Baker and Oregon halfback Mel Renfro on the United Press International A l l -American t e am. One state has had two Al lAmerican many times before, but not since the days of Doak Walker and Bobby Layne in Texas have two players come from the same high school and gone on to win h onors the same year i n co l l ege, Baker and Renfro were teammates on state championship teams at Portland's Jefferson

High. Coach Bill Bowerman's stable of Oregon distance runners supplied the No. 4 story.

Burleson, Vic Reeve, Archie San Romani Jr., and Keith Forman ran the four mile relay in the World Record time of 16:08.4 at Fresno Calif., May 12, breaking a r ecord some experts had said would stand for years. Oregon State's 6-0 Liberty Bowl Dec. 15 over Villanova was the No. 5 story. This also was controlled by Baker, who ran 90 yards for the game's only touchdown. A fantastic string of victories by Tarr, Oregon's great hurdler, provided the sixthranking story. Tarr won the high and intermediate hurdles in the NCAA meet and was clocked in 13.3 seconds, only one tenth off the world record.

"If Mount Bachelor was going to be so gracious as to give free skiing to the kids in Bend they (the students) shouldn't be penalized," she said. Fox pointed out that the decision to skip school should be up to the parents, and if youngsters' grades warrant a day off, they should be able to go.
