No doubt about it, the Oregor
“dark horse” of a week ago comet

of the northern division race gett
under way definitely established
as a real threat to place among
the leaders before the race is fi
nally decided.
The Webfoots were a vastly im
proved team last Saturday as
compared with the quintet which
split a series with Washington
State a few days before. A spar
kling passing attack applied ef
fectively by the Ducks during the
first half played havoc with
“Slats” Gill's zone defense. The
particularly outstanding attack
adopted by the Webfoot crew was
the lightning-like passing which
drew the Beaver defense out of
position and opened the way for
Willie Jones, lenglhy center, to

Big Red McDonald, fire-eating
rough-and-ready guard, had his
hands full with Budd Jones during
the evening. It isn’t often that
McDonald finds a man who can
play him at his own game, but
Budd, after being forced into
rough-house tactics, gave the
Beaver’s carrot - topped defense
man all he could handle.
The ball game might have been
played in the southern division of
the Pacific coast loop instead of
in these parts. Both teams played
such rough ball that spectators
who had ever seen the varsity
fives from California schools in
action might have mistaken Eu
gene for Berkeley, Palo Alto or
L*>s Angeles.
Ordinarily there is a world of
difference in the style of basket-,
ball played north of the Siskiyous
and that played to the south. The
northern loop has become well
known for its fast, clean ball while
the southern members have al
ways concentrated upon heavier
men who play a slower game in
which there is much more bodily
contact than is tolerated in the
Northwest. There was enough
personal contact for even the most
blood-thirsty fans Saturday and a
half dozen times the boys got
quite a distance ahead of the ref
It is a hard job for a lad who
has been brought up and trained
in the finer elements of the north

midst of a rough game. For a
player, who is accustomed to hav
ing a referee hold a game down
to the point where unnecessary
roughness is at a minimum, to be
placed in a melee in which he is
being buffeted about puts him in
a bad spot.
He finds it harder to play ef
fectively because he has to con
centrate his attention upon meet

its sixth consecu

struggle in an overtime period, 30

of the regular playing time.
Although constantly clogging at

two occasions in the game, even
though by bringing the score into
a tie most of the time. After lead
ing the Cougars 12 to 6, early in

Scoring Parade; Many Subs
Used by Yearlings
The frosh basketball team, show
ing the best form of the season so
far, crushed the Golden Tide of
University high last night at the
Igloo in a runaway tilt, 47 to 18.
The Ducklings got away to a
flying start, leading 14-2 at the
end of the first quarter. A flock of
substitutes, entering immediately
afterwards, kept up the show,
j merrily ringing baskets from every
! angle. The starting lineup re
turned for the third quarter, soon
giving way to the subs again. The
score at the end of the third quar
ter was 40-10. The third team,
making its appearance on the ma
ple court, was the signal for a flur
ry of baskets by the campus preps.
Williamson, substitute forward,
was high point man, connecting
for 10 points, followed closely by
his teammate, Faust, who rang up
eight counters. Mann, U H. S.
guard, led his team’s scoring.with
six points.
Tomorrow night the yearlings
will entertain Wendling high
school. Little is known about the
opponents, except that they have
consistently good teams, and that

All-Stars Defeat
North Bend and
Coquille Quintets
Playing their first games of the
season, the Oregon All-Stars, com
posed of ex-Webfoot football play
ers, got off to an impressive start
last weekend by winning from the
Coquille Townies and North Bend
Independents, by scores of 26 to
21, and 28 to 23.
Against the Coquille team, the
All-Stars started at a fast pace,
and kept it throughout the game.
Bree Cuppoletti, chunky guard,
was high point man with eight
counters. Mikulak scored six and
Temple starred with an effective
floor game.
Hughes was the individual star
of the game against North Bend,
garnering five field goals for a to
tal of 10 points. Mikulak netted
five points.
An interesting feature of the
two games was the small number
of fouls committed by the much
publicized “rough players.” In two
games the team was called but 13
times for fouls, the exact number
that was called against the varsity
in the O.S.C. game.
The All-Stars will engage De
Neffe’s Clothiers Thursday night
at the Igloo. DeNeffe's are state
independent champions, and will
give the All-Stars the acid test. The
proceeds of the game will go to
the Lions’ club benefit fund.
Tom Mountain Urges
Wrestlers to Report
Several campus athletes inter
ested in wrestling" have started
workouts this week in the men’s
gym. These men are turning out
regularly and plan to ask for per
mission to organize a varsity
wrestling team if enough men are
interested in the sport.
At present there are not enough
men in a few of the weight class
es to justify any action, so the in
terested men ask that any others
who wish to join the group see
Tom Mountain or start workouts
in the wrestling room at the gym.
Temple Appointed
Football Mentor
At Pendleton High
Mark Temple, co-captain of the
Webfoot grid forces last season,
has been selected for the post of
head coach at Pendleton high
school, according to word received
from that city yesterday.
Temple, a graduate of Pendleton
high school, starred in football,
basketball, and track while at
tending that institution. He played
under Bob Quinn, now Eastern
Oregon normal coach, and Fred
Kramer, Eugene high school coach.
After coming to Oregon, he was a
mainstay in the Lemon-Yellow
backfield, first attracting nation
wide notice when he ran wild
against the N. Y. U. Violets in
1931. Temple is majoring in physi
cal education.
Dr. E. B. Warrington will hold a
discussion of religion of the future
at the Y. W. bungalow tonight at
9 o’clock.

Mikulak did his best to stave off
the Clark-Hughes attack while
Cuppoletti led the crying and wail
ing chorus every time a point was
lost. Scores were 15-6, 15-12.
Sigma Hall Trims Phi Sigs
Scoring another victory for a
dormitory team, Sigma hall had an
easy time defeating Phi Sigma
Kappa. In the second game the Phi
Sigs opened the scoring with one
point and then turned the ball over
to Winslow who continued serving
long enough to ring up 15 points
md win the contest. His teammate
Blantz was making most of -the
kills. W
Husky Howard Ohmart led the
Yeomen in a decisive victory over
Sigma Alpha Mu. Ohmart, assist
ed by Campbell, made his net work
count for almost all the Yeomen
points with his hard kills. Roten
burg was the only Sammie to offer
much effective opposition.
