Spotlight in Donut
Sports Discussions
Tj'LIGIBILITY ... The questic
1 of eligibility for intramun
basketball competition . . . The
much harrased word, and that d<
cidedly snoopish question are th
spotlighters in today’s little discus
* * *
This column is not assuming th
attitude of a snooper, but instea
taking the stand that whateve
action Is best for the greater
number of intramural competitor
is the correct thing to do.
We pointed}' suggest that eithe
the intramural administrativ
board, the managers, or intereste
competitors start a general house
cleaning which will put the intra
mural program back on the basi
it is supposed to be conducted an
end the rumors and argument
floating around the campus.
# * *
The purpose of the donut pro
gram is to provide exercise, sports
manlike competition, and genera
good feeling for the average stu
dent here. The program is ver;
definitely for the average man am
not for any athlete who is goo<
enough for Varsity competition
Of course in the competitive hea
for the championship honors every
one forgets this.
* * #
And so much is everyone forget
ting it that several teams are us
ing ineligible men . . . the major
ity of them ineligibile because the}
are of Varsity ability, are trying
out for Varsity, but are still play
ing intramural ball in direct dis
agreement with the rules. Other;
are forgetting the rule about shift
ing from “A” to “B” teams.
* * *
After last year’s general kick
about stars competing and in par
ticular about the Jones boys play
ing . . . made by the living organ
izations who do not possess fine
crops of athletes (by far the larg
est number of the groups were ir
this class), the intramural board
added rules to prevent a similar
occurence this season.
These rulings, (this may con
tradict a statement we made a few
isues ago but the following is cor
rect), without question prevent any
man who plays Varsity basketball,
whether he goes out before intra
mural season started or after
wards, from playing intramural
♦ * *
The rulings in Section 8-a
and Section 4 are:
“No Individual who has been
a member of a varsity squad
at the time of a regularly
scheduled game, or who joins
a varsity squad after the
starting of the Intramural sea
son in that sport, shall play on
an intramural team in that
sport during the season.”
That takes care of men who
joined the Varsity men after the
intramural games began. Then for
Ihe elimination of players who
joined the Varsity before donut
competition started:
"No regular members of
Frosh or Varsity squads shall
compete on intramural teams
in the same sport that season.
All individuals who are mem
bers of these squads one day
prior to the opening of the in
tramural season shall he con
sidered as regular members.”
* * *
Not attempting to flay any par
ticular organization but just to
help in clearing the thing up, we
will list a few men who according
to impartial statements by various
Emerald sports reporters arc def
initely breaking the rule.
They are: John Mullen, A.T.O..
who went out for Varsity two days
before donut competition started;
Bill Harcombe, S.P.E., who played
last night against the Abba Dabbas
and who has been out for Varsity;
l therefore the Abba Dabbas can
protest yesterday's game if they
tvish.) Ken Philips, Theta Chi.
Bunny Butler, Frank Levings.
Sigma Chi: all of whom turned out
for Varsity and also are playing
intramural. This was a hurried
cheek—1we don't know- how many
rate the list.
* * *
And then about shifting from
"A” to "B" competition. A few
nights ago the Chi Psis were
awarded a forfeit because the
Sigma Chis did this . . . Now in
checking the records we find in the
jsir.e game that the Chi Psis also

year's Webfoot squad, leads the

Kermit Stevens and Henry Levoff,

SONS to Show

be found. Both nights the game
will be played on McArthur court.

journey here Tuesday, December

college stars. The heavy pre-sea
son schedule will be climaxed with
a two game return series in Port
land against the Union Oilers.
Last year the Oregon Varsity split
a two-game series with the Oilers.
Reinhart’s men are rapidly be
ing shaped into a polished team
before they meet Union Oil in the
initial “acid test.” However, only
two members of the team, Bill
Berg and Willie Jones, appear to
be certain of starting places on the
Varsity five. - Berg, chosen cap
tain of Oregon's 1935 basketball
team, will play in his regular for

Jones will make a bid for all-Coast
honors at the center post. Upon

Fight for Positions
Sam Liebowitz, flashy frosh team
graduate and wizard ball passer,
seems to have his feet set pretty
solidly for the other forward post.
But three varsity lettermen are
fighting it out for the two guard
positions at the present time. Glen
Sanford, Rollie Rourke, and Ron
Gemmell—all one stripe men—ap
pear on a par at the present time.
However, when the Webfoot
football teams rolls home from
Huey Long’s state, several pig
skin artists will turn their atten

Jones, injured Oregon wingman,
seems to have the best chance of

In Donut Race
Twelve Campus Groups
To Vie for Cup
Start Set for Four Sharp;
Hayward Donates
Two Prizes
When Colonel Bill Hayward,
track coach and athletic trainer
at the University of Oregon, fires
the shot starting this afternoon’s
donut cross-country meet, 43 har
riers, representing twelve campus
organizations will take to their
toes and begin the gruelling 2.7
mile race for intramural honors.
As incentives for victory in this
contest, two prizes, both of which
are being donated by Hayward,
will be offered the athletes. A
trophy will be presented to the
group scoring the highest number
of points, while the individual
crossing the finish line first will
receive a turkey.
Start at Hayward Field
The race will start promptly at
4 o’clock. Runners will line up
in starting lanes at the north end
of the athletic field located imme
diately west of the stadium. The
course will lead the athletes
through the field to Twenty-third
avenue, east across the vacant lot
to Columbia street, and through
Fairmounts heights to the top of
the peak in Hendricks park. After
reaching the summit of the crest,
the runners will proceed down
through Hendricks park, past the
elk and deer pens, climb a small
hill, and then descend down the
slope into Sixteenth street, and
into the east end of Hayward field
where the finish line is located.
Drawings for starting lanes will
be held immediately prior to the
Course judges will be stationed
at various places along the course
to direct the runners and regu
late traffic.

supervisor of the race, has de

a time. Two ropes extending along
the last ten yards of the home
stretch will form an alleyway wide
enough for only one man to pass
through. As the runners trot out
of this lane they will be timed by
the judges, thereby eliminating all
possibilities of disputes.
A last-minute withdrawal from
the race by the Delta Tau Delta
has caused a change in the entry
list as published in yesterday’s
Emerald. Injuries will prevent
Comet Gibbons and Paul Rix of
the Delts from competing in the
contest, so that fraternity will be
disqualified from team competition.

Another change saw the Gunder

list of runners.
Today’s meet is of special signifi
cance to Hayward as he has long
promoted cross-country at Oregon
and lias worked hard to initiate it
as an intramural sport. Oregon has
been represented by cross-country
teams in the past but this affair
is the first of its kind in donut cir
cles and realizes one of the track
tutor’s most anxious desires.
