Defending champions of the past
two years, the Oakridge boys’
quintet is given only an outside
chance to cop the county title for
the third time. Pleasant Hill,
Thurston and Lorane are all gun
ning for the crown. Pleasant Hill
is probably the most favored team
in the tournament, having split its
series with Oakridge. It led the
eastern division.
Money teams in the girls' divi
sion include Mohawk, 1935 cham
pions, Oakridge, Vida, Santa Clara
and Elmira. The Mohawk lasses
are again strong, but will en
counter trouble, particularly from

A preliminary catalog, contain

Intramural Boxing
Schedule Cancelled
Until Spring Term
Intramural boxing matches
arc all washed up for this term,
donut officials said yesterday.
Matches have been postponed
indefinitely, but are expected to
be staged some time during
spring term.
Insufficient contestants
turned out to make the boxing
rounds a success, it was said.
Riflemen May Be
In National Shoot
Score of 3714 Should Put
15-Man Team in ROTC
Meet, Says Blythe
With a total of 3714 points in the
ninth corps area matches, the Uni
versity marksmen are expected by
Sgt. Harvey Blythe, ROTC instruc
tor, to be chosen as contenders in
the national ROTC championship
matches, to be held spripg term.
“I feel sure,” said Sergeant
Blythe, ‘‘that the score is good
enough that the team will be se
lected as one of those to fire for
the national championship.”
The score, of the 1935 Oregon
team, which won the national
ROTC rifle title, was only 13 points
over this year’s score, he said.
The top 15 per cent of the teams
in each corps area vie for national
championship. The winning team in
each area is awarded a prize.
In the corps area matches 15
man teams fire in four positions,
with the 10 highest total scores be
ing counted. Kenneth BeLieu was
.high man for Oregon, with a total
of 383. John Halverson and Jack
Lew were next with 373 and 371
Exceptional performances were:
prone, Hugh McCredie and B. J.
Cross, 100; sitting, Hugh McCredie,
100, Jack Lew and B. J. Cross, 98;
kneeling, B. J. Cross, 97, Ken Be
Lieu, 95; standing, Ken BeLieu, 92.
Stanley Warren was commended
by Sergeant Blythe for his good
showing. Although having had no
previous experience, he was in fifth
place with a 367.
which begins June 15, will be held
in the Lincoln high school. Dean
Powers is in charge.
Last year, the attendance at the
summer session was 619 for the
six weeks’ term at Eugene, 764- at
Portland, and 202 for the post-ses
Although more emphasis is laid
on advanced and graduate work
during the summer session, the
courses must be such that they
meet graduation requirements, and
still offer a variety from year to
Webfoots Plot
Attack on OSC
Title Aspiration
Beavers Stand Chanet
For Championship;
Ducks Ready
Oregon State is firmly en
trenched in second place in the
northern division basketball derby
and stands a slim chance of cap
turing the crown, while Oregon is
floundering around down in fourth
place. That apparenty means noth
ing at all to Howard Hobson's re
vived Webfoots, however, and they
are nightly plotting and planning
ways of knocking championship
ideas out of the high-riding Beav
ers by drubbing them at Corvallis
Friday night.
Ducks’ Stock Booms
Oregon stock boomed upward
like the 1928 Wall street market in
last Saturday’s bruising struggle
with the Beavers at the Igloo and
the Ducks are now rated as strong
opponents for any outfit. Eager
ness and confidence characterized
workouts last night and Monday
and every indication points to a
fight at Corvallis as bitter as the
28-to-26 donneybrook here. A prac
tice session will be held in the
men’s gymnasium at 10 a. in. to
Coach Hobson plans to start the
same quintet that gave the Beav
ers such a battle at McArthur
court when the teams line up at
Corvallis. Sammy Liebowitz and
Dave Silver will be at forwards,
with Chuck Patterson at center,
and Budd Jones and Rollie Rourke
at guards.
Guard Spots Uncertain
There is a possibility that Ken
Purdy and Chief McLean will open
at the back-court spots in place
of Jones and Rourke. The speedy
pair performed brilliantly against
Washington State ten days ago and
showed well in the few minutes
they played in the Oregon State
Ray Jewell, tallest man on the
squad, may see service Friday at
center. The dropping of Ward
Howell from the outfit because of
scholastic deficiencies has elevated
Jewell from third to second string
pivot man. He may be assigned the
difficult task of checking beanpole
Cliff Folen of the Staters during
a part of the fracas. Folen has been
a disagreeable thorn in Oregon's
side in all three games played be
tween the two arch-rivals to date.
Free Throws Stressed
Free throw shooting has been
stressed by Hobson in workouts
this week, for the Webfoots have
caged only 98 of 187 gift tosses to
date this season. The lads can hit
’em in practice, but not in actual

Is Football Over-Emphasized?
Athletes Differ on Question
I -
Football at the expense of othei
sports ? This is a moot question
among University athletes anc
sport fans, some of whom contend
that the other sports are needlessly
allowed to suffer in the big drive
to put Oregon on the football map
The question was asked of sev
eral prominent Webfoot athletes.
Bearing in mind the financial ad
vantages involved, is it fair to em
phasize footbal to such an extent
as to detract from the pursuit of
the other sports?
Tracksters Say “No”
Says Arne Lindgren, ace broad
jumper: No! There should be a
wider range of activities for the
benefit of the students, and not
so much emphasis on football.
George Varoff, Olympic mater
ial, who pole vaults over 14 feet:
No! I don’t think we should em
phasize football, because even
minor sports, with their abundance
of good material, could bring the
name Oregon to stand among the
Gridders Say “Yes”
Bree Cuppoleiti, all-American
second team pro: There is no need
kidding ourselves. Football is the
"king pin" of all sports, there are
more paid admissions patronizing
this sport than any other in the
country. Without it, minor sports
could not exist.
Stan Riordan, powerful punter
of the Webfoots: If the emphasis
is placed on football teams, the in
stitution will have a better team:
with a better team, more money is
taken in, and as a result, the other
sports can be adequately supported.
Bill Courtney Speaks
Bill Courtney, basketball lumin
ary: I think it is wrong to build
up football to the detriment of
other sports, but I think football
should be given preference because
of the possible benefits to the other
sports in the long run.
Several athletes, who did not
wish to be quoted, maintained that
one sport is just as important to
the athletes as another, and that
the mere fact that one pays more
than another should make no dif
ference. After all, said one, ath
letics are for the benefit of the
students and not for the purpose
of making money.
Majority Favor Football
However, the majority seemed to
have the opinion that emphasis on
football would not detract from
other sports.
Rollie Rourke, one of Hobson’s
more reliable guards: Under the
present set-up, finances assume
major importance. Football must
be emphasized to the point where
it will pay sufficient dividends and
contribute rather than detract
from the pursuit of other sports.
“Football Spells Money”
Mike Mikulak, pro all-American
first team: Football spells money.
Athletics should be put on a basis
where all money made on football
should be put right back into the
other sports, and thereby building
up your line of sports.
Jim Hurd, Pacific coast inter
collegiate record holder in the 100
yard free style swimming event:
The athletic money should be dis
tributed more evenly and support
given to the other major sports,
but football should be remembered
as the money-getter among ath
Kenyon Skinner, varsity tackle:
Football is of the most benefit to
all athletics in general. -

Thirsting for revenge, the Uni

will invade the Oregon campus this
week to match their skill with Ore

Coach Jack Torney's Huskj

Jack Mcdica, will be more danger

the stinging defeat that the Duck
swimmers handed them last sea

Oregon Is Favored
Oregon is rated as the outstand
ing swim team on the Pacific coast
because of their brilliant success in
California this year, so a win
would be ever more tasty than us
ual for the Huskies.
As this will be Oregon’s last
dual meet of the season, a defeat
at the hands of Washington would
sink the Ducks' hopes of claiming
the Pacific coast championship.
Medina Outstanding
Outstanding men on the Wash
ington squad are Jack Medica
brilliant star in the 220 and 44C
yard freestyle events, Hoskins,
backstroke ace, and Caddy, speedy

The Duck mermen will be led by
