Frosh Liehoivilz Recalls
Wierd Maneuvers of Ken
Fagans, Oregon Slater
SHADOWS from out of the past
stalked through McArthur
court last Friday night as the
frosh played the first of their an
nual hoop series with the rooks
of Oregon State.
Ken Fagans, Oregon State’s
sensational all-coast guard of two
and three years ago, came back to
thrill the customers with his lazy
dribble, his weird change of pace
and his bewildering passing. But
last Friday it wasn't the great
Fagans himself, but a Fagans of
old brought back to life in the
form of Sam Liebowitz, freshman
Exactly as Fagans ran over the
maple boards on ball bearings a
couple of years ago, befuddling
the opposition as it tried to set
itself for his next move, so did
Liebowitz fake the rooks crazy a3
they tried to stop his passes and
Not yet has Liebowitz the polish
and the confidence of the Fagans
of two or three years ago but the
Liebowitz of today is almost
identical in technique to the Fa
gans of 1928.
* * *
Just as Fagans used to saunter
down the floor with that long,
easy-going stride and his high
dribble so Liebowitz carried the
ball into the rooks’ defense Friday
night. But that high, slow dribble
— usually easy for the defensive
guard to break up- was almost
as effectively controlled by Liebo
witz as it was formerly when Fa
gans used it.
Fagans had a way of coasting
up to the defense and as the guard
made a try to capture the ball,
Fagans put on speed with a light
ning-like break either to the right
or to the left and he was inside
the defense, unguarded, ready for
an easy push shot from the vicin
ity of the foul line. It was Fagans
over and over again Friday as
Liebowitz worked the same stuff
in exactly the same way.
But the similarity between the
two players does not end with the
similarity of their dribbling tech
nique and the changes of pace.
Fagans passed equally well with
either his right or his left hand
and he could do it from any posi
tion. It mattered not whether he
was in the midst of a dribble or
even if he was off balance, his
passes were deceptive and fast.
Liebowitz has that same knack,
and what is even more important,
he, like Fagans, is a master of the
art of split-vision. He can draw
the defense out of position as he
fakes one way with his eyes and
the other way with the ball and
yet all the time he knows where
his teammates are so his passes
are accurate.
And even yet the similarity does
not end. Fagans was as smooth
as flowing oil he was loose and
relaxed practically all the time
His slouchy posture and ease of
motion enabled him to save his
bursts of speed for the times when
they were most needed. Liebowitz
has the same power of relaxation
his muscles are loose and his
movements are free. That is the
secret of the smoothness and the
apparent effortless motion that
marked ttie play of Fagans as
that now make Liebowitz such an
outstanding performer.
Even during the dribble when'
the ordinary player is so tense, the
appearance of the now almost for
gotten hero of Oregon State and I
this promising Oregon youngster I
are the same. Have you watched
Liebowitz as he fribbles? Notice
how his arms are free-swinging
and relaxed between the time his I
hand leaves it on the downward
push and the time it has bounced
back. His whole body is in a state [
of relaxation even to his fingers. ;
He is at ease ready to go in any i
direction in a split-second. That
is the secret of Liebowitz's decep- i
tion. That was the secret of I
Fagan’s deception. That is the
secret of true deception in any
big man.
* * •
Incidently, both Fagans and
Lewis got their early training in I
California. Fagans went through
high school in Huntington Park,
which is a suburb of Los Angeles,
and Lewis, while he played his
last two years of prep school ball
for Washington high of Portland,
had acquired his fundamentals of '
deception in earlier days around
San Francisco.
Liebowitz came to Oregon from
Brooklyn, New York.

5. In the terms of admission
and course of study there shall be
no distinction made between the
males and females.
The requirements, contained in
the catalog, for admission into the
Collegiate Department are to pass
examinations in the following
studies: reading, writing, orthog
raphy, practical arithmetic, Eng
lish grammar, geography, Greek
grammar and reader, Batin gram
mar and reader, and four books of
Caesar. Three courses of study
were furnished by that department
at that time, classical, scientific,
and normal. The courses of study
were to be raised and extended as

Dr. Schmidt’s catalog of 1884-85
shows that the University then
had an enrollment of 188 students.
This booklet, consisting of 36 pag
es, contains the alumni directory
of the graduates of the preceding
seven years. The senior class of
1885 numbered four.
Gems In the 1885 catalog are:
"Board and room may be had
in private families at $4.00 per
week; and in clubs at $8.00.
“Students are not allowed to
board and room at hotels.
"All classes will be examined at
the close of each term.
“One of the most pressing wants
of the University was more room.
This has been met, for the present,
by the action of the last legisla
ture, which appropriated $30,000
for a new building (Villard hall).
This will probably be ready for oc
cupancy some time in 1886.”
The catalog of 1886 gives the
enrollment of the University as
331 students. Under the heading
of general information, the cata
log gives the following informa
tion concerning University build
"The University has on its cam
pus two brick buildings. One was
erected in part by the citizens of
Lane county and finished by the
state. It is one hundred and fif
teen feet long, fifty-four feet wide,
and three stories high, besides the
basement. The second building,
named by the Regents "Villard

the state. It is made of brick, but
has a concrete finish on the out

Mrs. Ernst Asked
To Attend Seattle
Theater Meeting
Oregon Faculty Member to Lead
Play Writing Discussion
At Drama Conference
Alice Henson Ernst, assistant
professor of English, has been
asked to preside at a section of
the northwest division of the com
ing National Theater conference,
to be held in Seattle from Febru
ary 15 to February 18. This con
ference covers ail phases of the
modern American theater.
The section at which she will
preside deals with playwriting,
and particularly with the develop
ment of regional drama. Directors
and others interested will hold a
round-table discussion.
For some years in the past, Mrs.
Ernst has taught playwriting on
the campus. In her own plays,
variously published and produced,
she has used the northwest mainly
as a background.
This theme has also been the
subject for several critical articles
written for eastern magazines.
Concerning the latest of these,
"Masks of the Northwest Coast,”
published in Theatre Arts, New
York, much favorable comment has
been received throughout the coun

At West Linn High
Dr. C. L. Huffaker of the school
of education was in West Linn
Friday visiting the high school
there. Dean J. R. Jewell of the
school of education said that it is
the policy of the teacher training
department to send each member ]
of the faculty to spend a day in
as many high schools as possible.
This policy enables the school to
see how successfully its place
ments are operating and to check
up on reasons why graduates of
other schools might be chosen in

Dean Jewell's own program is
to visit one school each month.
He said, “It is very interesting to
go into a good high school that
does not take as many teachers
from Oregon as we wish it might.”

Bests Salem High
Eugene high kicked the dope
bucket right out of the Igloo last
night when it trounced the highly
touted Salem high squad 2S to 21.
Salem took the lead at the start
with a free throw by Peters. Dan

Eugene was never headed after
this point. The first quarter end
ed with Eugene leading 6-2.
Baxter started the second pe

from the field. Ttoth then coun
tered two points for Salem. This
ended the scoring for the Cherry
City boys for the first half. The
local lads ran the count to 16-4 as
the gun ended the period.
Salem came back in the second
half, outscoring Eugene 17 to 12,
but were never able to close the
gap separating them from victory.
Peters, Salem center, led the
scoring with 10 points. Danner,
center for Eugene, was a close sec

Coach Hoyman is making no
predictions as to the showing of
either team. The varsity, how
ever, due to the number of stars
who make up its team, is heavily
favored to win the meet.
Wally Hug has shown some last
time lately, as have Bob Needham,
Bill Angell, Jim Reed and others.
Kerby, who is expected to be one
of Oregon’s best bets this season,
will be handicapped by his present
illness. Although these are the
