Outlook Gloomy For Duck Cinder Squad
Cancellation of
Washington State
Meet Announced
Possibility of Only Two
Big Meets Faces Bill
Hayw'arcl’s Trackmen
This Spring
A downcast yet determined
group of University of Oregon
track men met Thursday jn Mc
Arthur court to discuss the im
minent danger of oblivion that
threatens the potentially powerful
1936 Webfoot cinder squad be
cause of the recent cancellation of
the Washington State-Oregon dual
meet. With the Cougar opposition
stricken from their schedule, and
the uncertainty of Oregon State’s
having a track team, there is a
possibility that Oregon will have
but one meet before the 1936 coast
intercollegiates, May 29 and 30.
Points Towards Olympics
"It’s an Olympic year that Bill
Hayward has been preparing for
and pointing to since 1933,” *Arne
Lindgren, Northwest broad jump
champion said. “There are men out
there who will stand a good chance
of reaching Germany.”
Another Northwest champion,
Bud Shoemake, added, “There is no
use working out because a track
man can't get into shape unless he
has a good bit of strenuous compe
tition. We have dual meets with
Oregon State and Washington
scheduled, but it doesn’t look as if
Oregon State is even going to en
ter a team this year.”
“One meet doesn’t go far toward
getting in shape for the coast
championship meet, let alone the
Olympics,” said Oregon’s diminu
tive quarter miler, Howard Patter
Eindgren Speaks Again
Lindgren spoke again, “Of course
not. And on top of that we are
under obligation to bring the
Washington State team down here
this year.” He went on to explain
the situation, “Two years ago we
scheduled Washington State on a
home and home basis. That year
we went to Pullman. In 1935 we
were supposed to put up the money
to bring the Cougars to Eugene,
but because we were financially
unable Washington State came
across again and took us to Pull
man. Now for the second time its
our turn and the meet is cancelled.’’
The tenor of the conversation
changed to one of grim determina
tion as the team talked of plans
that they thought might produce
the $550 which would make possi
ble the Cougar invasion. Rather
than let down their beloved coach,
Bill Hayward, every man there said
that he would be willing to go out
and sell tickets to insure the meet.
Failing that, it was suggested that
the smaller colleges of the state be
asked to choose an all-star team
to meet Oregon.
Rosson Has Plan
Graduate Manager Hugh Rosson
formulated a plan similar to the
‘all-star" idea when it was found
necessary to cancel the WSC meet.
Rosson said he was trying to con
sumate the scheduling of an AAU
meet to replace the Cougar meet in
Eugene. Entrants in the meet
would be drawn from the high
schools and college’s of Oregon
under the Rosson plan.

Young Lawyers
Plan Hoop Game
“Anywhere, anytime,” were the
words of the second-year law stu
dents as they boldly challenged the
third-year barmen (seniors to
them) to a basketball game.
Acceptance of the challenge
came back clear and clarion. “Any
place, any time you say!”
No date or time has yet been
set, nor have players been chosen
for either squad. But that it'll be
a battle worth seeing is the unani
mous opinion of the law school’s
corridor gossip sharks.

In AAA Suit
In a precedent -setting suit, I*. T.
Vincent (a*>ove), Philadelphia real
estate operator, seeks to restrain
President Roosevelt, Chester Davis

final decision on the validity of the
law rests with the electorate, not
the supreme court. It is believed to
Ik- the first suit of its kind naming
the president a defendant.
Battle Set
For Today
Ducklings Favored to
Win Last of Annual
Four-Game Series
Oregon’s high scoring freshman
basketball team will meet the Ore
gon State Rooks at Corvallis this
afternoon in the final “little civil
war’’ game of the 1936 season. The
contest is scheduled for 2:30.
The frosh, who have won 18 of 19
starts to date, are favorites to take
the Rooks into camp once more,
but it’s an old tradition that any
thing in the book can happen when
yearling outfits tangle and any
thing may today.
Heller to Start
John Warren plans to start
Leonard Heller and Wally Johan
sen at forwards, Laddie Gale at
center, and Bobby Anet and Rod
Hansen at guards. Heller is new in
the starting lineup. His high point
collecting average and greatly im
proved play in recent games has
given him the starting call. Hansen
holds the nod over Hank Nilsen,
who has suffered from a cold the
past week. Gale, Johansen, and
Anet have been regulars all season.
Fred Hill and Merle Taylor,
Rook coaches, will probably start j
Ali Sandoz and Fred Soller at for
wards; Bob Rissman at center; and
Phil Fogle and George Kuvallis at
Frosh Lead in Series
The frosh hold a two-to-one edge
in games with the Rooks to date.
The Beaver babes nosed out the
Ducklings in an overtime period,
37 to 35, at Corvallis in the first
meeting, but the charges of Honest
John Warren came back for 32-to
21 and 37-to-27 victories here.
After today the frosh have only
one more contest on their slate,
that with Salem high here next
Tuesday. The players will continue
to turn out after that, however, in
order to provide the varsity with
scrimmage opposition.

chosen in the preliminary Jewett
radio hearings and will take part
in the final contest to be held Wed

Rebec Expected Back
At Desk After Illness
Dean George Rebec, head of the
philosophy department and dean of
the graduate division, is expected
back at his desk Monday after an
illness of several weeks.
Dean Rebec has been in ill health
for some time and has been able
to be at work only occasionally.
The Students, instructors, and
athletic staff of George Washing
ton university at Washington, D.
C., are all sold on their new bas
ketball coach, “Admiral” Bill Rein
hart, late of the Webfoot camp.
And well they should be! “Ad
miral Bill” Is flooring one of the
most powerful college quintets that
now functions within the boundar
ies of the United States. Coming
up against the best in the East and
Middle West, 'the lads from George
Washington have conquered in 13
out of the 14 games they have
played this season. The only de
feat handed to Reinhart's proteges'
was encountered in the first game
of the season against Ohio State.
That narrowly lost contest was
more than compensated for when
George Washington cnme back a
couple of weeks ago and dropped
the Buckeye Staters by a 25-point
What is it that Reinhart’s quin
tet has that gives it the winning
number and causes it to bq hailed
by Washington newspapermen as
the “greatest ever'’ at their local
university ?
That question could be answered
by one word—DEFENSE. The
eastern style of play calls for a
wild breaking charge for the op
ponents’ basket with no stress at
all being laid on the protection of
either hoop. Great scores are run
up in this manner, and the specta
tors derive pleasure from the wild
scoring drives. >
• Coach Reinhart introduced a bit
of his* man. to mai\, defense to the
play of his"'team (not enough to
detract from its crowd pleasing
propensities, however,’and it has
stormed every eastern basketball
citadel to roll up 13 straight wins
by huge margins.
* * #
"Admiral Bill’’ says that the
players on his squad are not excep
tional in size. All are about the
height of Oregon’s Sammy Liebow
itz. Reinhart compares them to the
Bronx Bomber, 1935 edition, in
their floor play and shooting also.

true even in the field of sports.
Take the case of Hobson's basket

The dumbest crack of the new
Recently Dean Allen of the
Journalism school received a letter
from a former student, in which
the chap told about his success in
the writing field and explained his
reason for dropping a line because
he wanted to inspire up and coming
journalists- that the field was open
to good writers.
It seems that recently this chap
had sold an article to National
Geographic for $300, and he en
closed in his letter a photostatic
copy of the check.
Doan Allen posted the letter and
the check .on the bulletin board as
he is prone to do when receiving
letters from graduates.
A sweet little freshman girl
noticed the check on the board and
exclaimed, “Why doesn't the fool
come and cash it?’’
You'll learn, little girl, you’ll
learn. That’s what college js for.

chance to recoup his lost popular

has lost considerable following due

the producers had been trying to
save money on the last few, but
they more than make up for it on

Frank Buck's latest action pic

According to advance reports,
“Fang and Claw” contains thrills
from start to finish and the best
part of the w-hole thing is that the
Heilig is offering another bill to

well rounded entertainment.
