Final Civil War’
Fracas of Season
Set for Corvallis
Oregon Plans Surprise
Staters; Hobson Will
Start Same Five
Oregon's rejuvenated varsity
basketball team will take its final
crack at the title - contending
Beavers of Oregon State in a game
which has definite bearing on the
northern division race at Corvallis
tonight. Opening tip-off is at 7:30
To Oregon State championship
chances tonight’s struggle is vital
ly important. If the Beavers lose
tonight they can do no more than
tie Washington for the conference
crown, even should they grab both
games from the Huskies in the
decisive series at Seattle next
week. An Oregon State win over
the Webfoots will put the Staters
in position to take undisputed pos
session of the title by winning both
tilts at Seattle.
The Webfoots are not consider
ing Oregon State pennant hopes
and will be out there to even their
season’s series with their ancient
arch-rivals. Slats Gill’s crew leads,
two games to one, at present.
Howard Hobson and his players
feel that a split in “civil war”
competition will mean at least a
fairly successful year. They are
aware of the fact that the only
series they have definitely lost thus
far is to Washington and that they
have a chance to break even or tie
for the winter with all other teams.
Coach Hobson plans to start the
same lineup that gave the Beavers
such a terrific battle before going
under, 2S to 26, here last week.
That quintet was the smoothest to
perform in a Webfoot suit since
early season, and the lads feel that
with a little more luck they
would have dropped the Beavers.
Same Five to Start
The five expected to open are
Sam Liebowitz and Dave Silver,
forwards; Chuck Patterson, center;
and Budd Jones and Rollie Rourke,
guards. Hobson said yesterday that
he might use any of four other
men during the evening and might
possibly start one or more of them.
Johnny Lewis, Ken Purdy, Chief
McLean, and Ray Jewell are the
quartet of reserves due for action.
Jewell has been coming fast of
late and may be given a chance
to check Oregon State’s Cliff Folen,
whose scoring sprees have played
havoc with the Ducks in three
other encounters. McLean and
Purdy are the speedboys and are
likely to be inserted in the lineup
if the fast breaking offense begins
to bog down.
For Oregon State it will be the
five which has started virtually
every game this season — Wally
Palmberg and Hub Tuttle at for
wards, Earl Conkling at center,
and Bob Bergstrom and Folen at
guards. The Staters have sunk or
swam with this combination all
year and their consistent record
shows it to be a successful outfit.
Opponents have about given up
hope of seeing the day when Wally
Palmberg’s scoring dashes w'iil be
halted, but the Webfoots are plan
ning to try again tonight. It is
doubtful if anyone can stop the
inimitable Astoria dervish, who has
piled up 137 points in 13 games,
but always there is hope. Liebow
itz, who guarded him as well as
any human could have last Satur
day. only to see the sensational
southpaw roll in 10 points, will
draw the thankless task again.
Palmberg needs an average of 10
points in each of his three remain
ing contests to break Bobby Galer’s
all-time northern division scoring
record of 136 points, set in 1934.
Sex oral Close Careers
Other checking assignments will
probably find Rourke on Tuttle,
Patterson on Folen. Budd Jones on
Bergstrom, and Silver on Conkling.
Tonight will mark the final ap
pearance in his home state for
Palmberg and also for Folen Berg

the first call of Howard Hobson
new Webfoot diamond tutor, next
week. Batterymen will be request
ed to report to Hobson at that
time for opening sessions inside
McArthur court. Organized team
workouts will not start until the
close of basketball season.
Hobson is faced with the task of
rebuilding his entire infield, with
the exception of third base. Only
Johnny Lewis, who took over the
third base spot in his sophomore
year last season and completed one
of the most brilliant inner quar
tets ever to play in the northern
division, is the only veteran regu
lar. Mark DeLaunay, sophomore
third sacker in 1934, is also due to
report this spring.
Ilest of Infield Gone
The rest of the infield that
burned up the league in ’35 is gone.
Joe Gordon and Ray Koch, short
stop and second baseman, have
graduated into professional ranks,
and Harry McCall, guardian of the
initial bag, has graduated.
Don McFadden, leading college
pitcher in the Northwest for the
last two years, will return for a
final fling and around him Hobson
will build his mound corps. Two
other lettermen. Cece Inman and
Herb E'oulk, are also expected to
report. Foulk is not in school at
present, but is expected to re-enter

Starting time is 3 p. m.
The Washington squad boasts an

the greatest middle distance swim
mer in the world today.
Medica’s superb performances
during his three years of college
competition have marked him as
a sure Olympic contestant. Sport
authorities believe that he will win
