Webfoot Hoopsters at
Last Beat Beavers;
V.O. Wins Swim Tilt ;
— -- By Ned -=
Success at last! Sorry we have
to use such a trite phrase to ex
press the satisfaction felt on the
victory of the Bucks over the
Beavers last Saturday night,
hut it so perfectly fills the bill
in this case that we feel its use
was warrantable just this once, j
No doubt everyone who wit- j
nessed the game was just a tri
fle glad that the redoubtable Mr. |
Hibbard didn’t have another ten
seconds to let fly any more of
his hoop-splitting shots. No
doubt, too, everyone who was
supporting the gallant Webfoot
band felt a certain smug satis
faction that the gang finally got
the breaks and capitalized them
when they did get them. It was
a fine finish for such a bad be
The basketball game so com
pletely filled the sport spotlight
this past weekend—as far as this
campus was concerned, anyway—
that not many realized that the
Oregon swimming team was com
pletely dominating the 1934 North
west championship Washington
Husky squad to the tune of a 51
to 32 beating that same evening.
Here are a few interesting side
lights on the meet as told by Mike
Hoyman, coach of the Webfoot
“The outstanding feature of
the whole meet, to my mind, was
tlie diving exhibition put on by
our lad, Bob Chilton. It -was his
first varsity meet, but his poise
and coolness together with the
almost faultless execution of
high point dives gave him a total
of 141. Twenty-eight points for
first place in that event. He
took the crowd by storm—even
the Washington swimmers ap
plauded. when he did his stuff.
“The second feature of the meet
that was of great interest (and
pleasure to me personally) was
the fact that four sophomores—
Chilton, Hoffman, Scroggins, an.l
Chuck Reed—accounted for more
than half of Oregon’s points all by
themselves. In their first varsity
meet these boys collected 26 points.
Chuck Reed beat Stice, Northwest
collegiate champ, in the 200-ya’rd
breaststroke, winning in the last
lap with a terrific sprint.
“High point man for the Ore
gon team was iron-man Jim
Reed, who collected 10 points. He
walked away from all competi
tors in the 150-yard backstroke,
took second in the 100-yard free
style, and swam one leg of the i
medley relay. High point man
for the meet was Jack Medica, j
Washington’s world record
breaker, who took three firsts
—in the 100, the 2‘JO, and the
■140. These were the only firsts
that the Huskies could find, too.”
Coach Hoyman forgot to men
tion that the Huskies were pre
viously undefeated this season in
four meets. Two weeks ago they
subdued the Washington State
team by a 47 to 36 score, and were
hailed as the cream of the north

— Jack Medica," University oi

Figures on Year's
More \Ien Active This Year
Statistics given yesterday by
Earl E. Boushev, supervisor of do
rut affairs, indicated that the
1931-35 all-year race was already
leading the 1933-34 scramble in
individual participation after only
two terms of play.
During the fall and winter terms
772 different men had taken part
in the intramural competition,
whereas only 749 were listed at
the end of three terms last year.
204 Added in Winter
From October to December 568
men entered the different events
swimming, water polo, cross
country, “A" and "B” basketball
-and from January to March 495
students represented fraternities,
dormitories, and independent or
ganizations in handball, “A" and
“B" volleyball, and wrestling. Of
the winter group 204 entered play
for the first time.
The hope of Dean John F. Bo
vard of the school of physical edu
cation is reaching its justification,
because the figures given above
show that 53 per cent of the total
number of men students are com
The donut handbook states the
purpose of intramural sports as
“an opportunity for every man to
engage in some form of sports."
According to Boushey, a higher

in either fall or winter terms is
expected this spring.
