UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EUGENE, TUESDAY, JANUARY 30, 1934
Virtually Clinch Title
By Wins Over Ducks
California Bears Climb to First Place
In Southern Position by Taking
Two From U.C.L.A. Bruins
By BILL AETZEL
The Washington Huskies virtually cinched the 1934 north
ern division basketball crown Iasi weekend by decisively de
feating the second-place Oregon quintet, in both of the games
at Seattle, while the Oregon State champions, the only other
mathematical contender for tin* 1934 title, were splitting a twin
bill with the lowly Cougar five at Pullman.
The apparently invincible Washington machine has passed
the half-way point in the hoop race with an impressive record
of eight consecutive victories and no defeats to so completely
dominate the position at the top'
of the heap that fans are begin
ning to discuss possibilities of the
purple-a n d-gold casaba artists
driving through to the title with
an unblemished record.
Huskies Have Eight More
Coach Hec Edmundson’s boys
have eight more gruelling tests
before the season’s over, inaugu
rating the second half of the race
with games at Corvallis and Eu
gene within the next week, and
in all probability will be toppled
over by one or more of the four
other teams that are anxiously
awaiting the chance for this
Nevertheless, the Huskies have
performed a remarkable feat to
date, and barring the most drastic
upset should win the right to rep
resent the north in the Pacific
coast playoff against the southern
division titleholder, in the post
season series to be played in Cali
fornia this yenr.
Beavers in Second Spot
Oregon State now rests in sec
ond place with four wins and as
many losses, while the Webfoots
appear in third spot with 2 wins
and 4 defeats. The two Oregon
quints are on the ragged edge of
title contention, with one more re
versal to eitner or corn teams
sure to snuff out any chance at
The Washington State five has
suffered six defeats and is defi
nitely out of the race, while Idaho i
with five losses has a slim mathe
matical taut hardly a practical
chance at the title, no team ever
having won the conference title
with more than four setbacks.
Guler Buns Wild
After Bob Galer, the stellar
high scoring forward of the Hus
kies, had been effectively checked
by Gib Olinger in Friday night's
game, which the Washington team
won 33-28, the flashy Husky bas
keteer ran wild in the following
night’s melee to score 14 points
and carry his teammates to a 34
to 25 win. Although the game
was tied up at half time, 16 all,
the Webfoot invaders were lead
ing most of the time and it was
largely the five field goals in that
first period that kept Washington
in the fight.
The Orangemen from Corvallis
gave indications that they might
be on their way to another con
ference title, or at least to seri
ously contest the claims of the
Seattle boys when they turned
back the Cougars at Pullman Fri
day night, 26 to 23, but blasted
that threat when the avenging
Cougars smothered the Orange
under a barrage of baskets to win
the struggle Saturday night by a
score of 24 to 15. The Gillinen,
incidentally, were held to three
lone field goals during the dura
tion of the game.
Bears Bead in South
Down south ttie deadlock was
broken when California went into
the lead as a result of two wins
over U. C. L. A., while Southern
California, defending champions,
were dividing a twin bill with an
inspired Stanford horde which up
set the Trojans completely in the
Saturday court struggle to lead
throughout the game and win, 35
The Cardinal lioopmen were

• Stanford Turns Tables
The* following night’s game
showed a complete reversal of
form. In one of the roughest
games of the extremely rough
game of basketball played in the
California l<iop, the driving Palo
Alto team smothered Guttero and
consequently broke up the brilliant
Trojan offense. It was then the
Cards’ turn to act and led by An
derson, who tallied 13 points, the
fast-breaking Stanford team led
throughout the game and won 35
The invaders led at half time,
17 to 13, and at one time were
ahead, 31 to 16. An offensive
drive on the part of the revamped
Southern California quint was a
little short of victory. Coach
Barry of the Trojans used two
full teams in the fray in an at
tempt to stem the Stanford ava
U. C. 1.. A. In Last Place
The California Bears are sitting
at the top of the standings, win
ning both games with apparent
ease from U. C. L. A., by scores
of 46 to 31, and 39 to 28. Captain
Hal Eifert, forward, and Dave
Meek, center, were the offensive
giants for the Bears in both
games while Don Piper, Uclan
forward ace, turned in good per
formances for the losers. Both
teams used almost three full
teams in the first game, and two
teams in the final fray.
Stanford by her win Saturday
climbed a notch out of the cellar,
leaving U. C. L. A. as the sole
possessor of that position.
Daniel N. Longaker, who com
pleted his University course at the
summer session and received his
B. S. degree this month, was re
cently promoted to the vice-presi
dency of the I. Newton Kinsey
company, insurance brokers, in
Philadelphia. Longaker is also at
tending Temple university law
school night classes.
He was affiliated with the Chi
Psi lodge on the campus.

Frosh Disaster to Bring
Yearlings Start Intensive Practice
For Three Weekend Games;
Center Post Uncertain
The Duckling hoopers, home
from a disastrous trip to Corval
lis, have a three-day period of in
tensive training awaiting them.
The f rosh showed occasional
flashes of potential power, but
were far too spasmodic to take
two games in a row from the baby
Beavers, losing the second game
at Corvallis 22-19.
After piling up a nice lead in
the last half, the frosh proceeded
to blow it, and before they knew
it, found themselves behind, and
a last-minute spurt proved of no
avail. Sam Liebowitz, guard, who
scored eight points, was the only
player to come close to the frosh
performance of Friday night.
Shields Plans Changes
Several players on the first
team are holding their positions
by a thread, and Coach Shields
will probably effect a few changes
in the lineup. The center post is
the most uncertain. Harry Helm
kin and Joe Murray divided the
job, but neithet showed up any
too well against the towering
Wellington, who in spite of his
“Riegels” boner, played well in
both games. Williamson, forward,
who scored nine points Friday
night, slumped, as did Faust.
This week the Ducklings play
three games over the weekend.
Thursday night they journey to
Wendling. Friday and Saturday
they trek up to northern Oregon,
taking on Astoria and Salem. Sa
lem, it will be recalled, handed
the rooks their first defeat.
Stiff Competition Expected
This pair of games should fur
nish the frosh their hardest prep
competition thus far, and now
that they are freed from the re
sponsibility of keeping up the
string of victories, should rapidly
round into shape for the (third and
fourth rook tilts.

The Alpha Tan Omega "A" vol

a previously undefeated Sherry

gram. Although they lost their
first game by a 14-16 score, the
A.T.O.'s, led by Stranix, came
back strong to take the last two
matches and the series from the
hall outfit. Flick and Michek were
the men on the losing team who
provided most of the opposition.
Turning in the second shutout
victory of this year's schedule, the
Yeomen maintained their place at
the top of Division II with a 15-0,
15-2 victory over a weak Phi Psi

Their Status Is Moot Question
Here are the two University or Iowa athletes who caused such a
furore in California athletic circles during the past week: Duane Wil
son (left) and Bud Froning, left the mid-west university to enter the
University of Southern California—intention, among other things,
basketball. Cries of “proselyting” went up from mid-west athletic
officials despite denial of the youths they had been asked to come to

Oregon Reposes in Third Spot
While Oregon State Moves
To Second Place
The University of Washington
hoo.p five retained its undefeated,
undisputed lead in the northern
division of the Pacific coast con
ference against a challenging Web
foot team last weekend. The sec
ond game of Ihe series was won
by the Huskies Saturday night, 34
to 25, after a victory by the same
outfit the night before.
As a result of their unsuccessful
invasion into the dangerous Seat
tle territory, the Ducks were un
compromisingly set back into
third place in the conference stand
ings, with Washington and Ore
gon State ahead.
Galer Dominates Situation
The tilt last Saturday night in
Seattle was dominated by the ac
c u r r a t e sharpshooting of the
league’s leading scorer, Washing
ton’s Bob Galer, who personally ac
counted for 14 points, over half
of the entire Oregon score.
Coach Bill Reinhart’s husky,
young team stole the show from
the opening curtain until near the
close of the first act. The Ducks
had plenty of fire and built up a
lead at the start of the game, only
to see Washington climb up the
scoring ladder to tie the Webfoots
16 to 16 at the rest period.
Robertson Gets 11 Points
Willie Jones put Oregon in the
lead for the last time with a free
throw at the beginning of the sec
ond half. Then Galer opened up
his private fireworks and kept the
Huskies ahead from there on out.
“Spook" Rqbertson added mate
rially to the Oregon total during
the tilt with 11 markers, but Galer
won the scoring duel with a heal
thy three-point margin. The-Hus
kies put the game on ice at a point
in the second period, when Wag
ner, Washington center, hit the
hoop for three successive goals.
