FroshBasketeers to Battle With Rooks at Corvallis Tonight
Two Teams, as
Yet ,1111 beaten,
Freshmen Pulling Strong
Lineup To Face IVTen
Callicon’s Scoring Aces To
Meet Strong Rivals
The freshman basketball team
in a battle with the Hooks at Cor
vallis tonight will attempt to keep
their unblemished record intact
and add another mark to in the
games won column.
From an early season jumble of
unorganized material, Coach Prink
Callison and his assistant, Scott
Milligan, have shaped a quintet
that has swept victorious through
four straight games, running up
high Scores in each tussle. As the
development of the Rooks has been
similar, the first clash between
the rival yearlings should be in
The probable starting lineup for
Oregon consists of Don Siegmund
and Clarence James, forwards;
Bill Morgan and Cliff Garnett,
guards; and Charles Roberts,
Siegmund Leads Scorers
Siegmund has consistently been
the highest scoring man on the
team although James also can
sink them when the opportunity
arises. Both men are fancy floor
workers and should give the Rook
defense plenty of trouble. Bill
Morgan is a strong defensive play
er, while Cliff Garnett has been
improving steadily since the be
ginning of the season. Roberts is
a dependable center who has an
uncanny ability to shoot accurate
ly over or around his guard.
Should the starting five falter,
they will be replaced by Mughie
Kvans and Homer Stahl, forwards;
George Robertson and Leroy
Shaneman, guards; and George
Beechler, center. Undoubtedly
these men will get plenty of ex
ercise before the evening is over,
as Callison has been giving each
of his charges a chance to kick
through in action. Bill Bowerman
may also break in if his cold im
Although the lrosh knocked
over the Albany college quintet,
54 to 18, the Beaver babes follow
ed suit with a 84 to 32 triumph.
Salem high has been defeated
twice by the Rooks, 32 to 17 and
21 to 17. The frosh played Salem
Tuesday night, coming through
with 43 to 22 win.
Aside from comparative scores
the players show up evenly. The
big push of the Rook attack is Ed
Lewis, center. Reports from the
Oregon State camp assert Lewis to
be one of the best yearling hoop
artists in the Northwest. Red Mc
Donald, guard, is another regular
who is fast winning his spurs. Mc
Donald is a Medford high product.
He was developed along with Cliff
Garnett, Bill Morgan, and Bill
Bowerman of the frosh by Prink
Callison when Prink coached the
Pearpickers. Besides these two,
the Rook regulars are Emmett
Huffman, Tommy Ward', Art
Lowe, Reg Rust, Rodney Mason.
Bob Beal, and Mark Briggs.
The time of tonight’s Rook
game will be 7:30. Tomorrow
night, the Frosh and Rooks will
play a return game as a prelim
inary to the Wnshington-Oregon
contest at McArthur court.

Purple and Gold Huskies W ho Will Tonight Make Bid to Hold Title
The tTniversity of Washington five, pictured above, will !><■ defending its title tonight as Northwest conference champions. The quintet has swept through a hard pre
season schedule with just one upset and that to the De Neffe team of Eugene. They hold victories over Gon/.aga, Whitman, and several semi-pro teams.
From left to right, the players are: Hank Swanson, tall veteran forward; Ralph “Cat” Cairney, a sophomore guard, considered by Coach Hec Edmundson to he the best
prospect developed at Washington in years; Art Peterson, guard or forward, probably the crack shot of the team; Hal McClary, who uses his six feet four inches of height
to good advantage at center; and Virg Perry, forward, who is a fine floor worker and scoring threat.

Web foots Renew Race Against Huskies
COACH BILL. REINHARTS fighting Webfoots will renew their bat
tle for conference honors against the University of Washington
Huskies at McArthur court tonight. The Huskies will mix it with
the Webfoots in the second game of the series at the Igloo Saturday
The Huskies have bitten a tough assignment, as they will play
four hard games in five days. Their only day of rest will be Sunday
as they journey to Corvallis to meet the Oregon State tossers on
Monday and Tuesday evenings. The latter series will probably de
velop into one of those “grudge” affairs as the Beavers split even
with file Huskies in their two-game series at Seattle last week, after
Washington was figured to take both contests easily.
Seems as though the whole Washington attack is dependent upon
Hal McClary, giant center, as it functions in great style when McClary
is on, and doesn’t do so hot when the said person is off his basketball.
Coach Edmundson will probably start four lettermen against Oregon,
with "Cat” Cairney, sophomore guard, filling the other berth. Hank
Swanson, another tall personage, and Jiggs Jaloff, the flashy small
sized veteran, will hold down the forward berths. McClary will have
charge of the center duties, with Cairney and Art Peterson at guards.

both teams fighting to keep their,
undefeated records unblemished, j
Coach Prink Callison has a well
balanced team, with several good
reserves, while the Kooks seem to
have built their quintet around
lanky Ed Lewis, reputed to be one
of the greatest players ever de
veloped in Portland.

year, and tlielr record reads four
wins and no defeats. The t'lic

Albany eollege, and Salem high
have been conquered in the or
der named. In every game the
yearlings have had things all
their own way, running up a !
big score in each. Tile Kooks
have also fared well, lint they '
have had to work harder for
some of their victories. This
game will again he the scene of
a Medford battle, with the flashy
lied McDonald pitted against
Bill Morgan and Cliff Garnett.
Said McDonald was the young
man who caused the Prosit so
much trouble during the past
football season. Morgan, Gar

mates at Medford high school.

tact that Dr. Spears is not only
a masterful coach, but that he

no doubt but that there is a de

solution that I know to this
