By PAT FRIZZELL,
It seems impossible to get rid of
this guy Palmberg.
Willowy Wally, Oregon State's
all-American and, as far as your
commentator is concerned, all-time
all-universe, basketball forward,
caused the Webfoots several dozen
pecks of trouble last winter. You'll
probably recall that he ran up 187
points in 16 conference games for
a new northern division record.
A lot of those points were scored
against Oregon as the Beavers
socked the Ducks three in four.
Now, like a bad penny, the elu
sive Mr. Palmberg again turns up
to harrass us.
He’ll be weaving up and down
the Igloo floor tomorrow night,
will this extremely dextrous Palm
berg fellow. This time he’ll do his
phenomenal shooting and all his
other spectacular chores under the
banner of Wagners’ Independents.
It doesn’t matter where or for
whom Palmberg struts his stuff.
He’s still the same man who can’t
be checked. Not only does he roll
up field goal after field goal, but
he feeds his team mates as a side
* * *
Yes, indeed, it’ll be a treat to
watch Palmberg again. This great
est of all John Warren’s fighting
Astoria fishermen is the perfect
example of basketball style and
Will the ex-Oregon State hot
shot function in old-time form to
morrow? Probably, the answer is
simple and affirmative. And prob
ably he’ll cage the proverbial ca
saba with old-time frequency.

With Palmberg will be three of
his former Oregon State team
mates—Bob Bergstrom, Cliff Fol
en, and Wilbur Kidder. They’re all
good ball players. Also on the
Wagners’ outfit are Mush Torson,
Corvallis high coach, who played
for OSC way back when; Ali and
Fred Sandoz, rook numeralmen of
last year, and Elmo Crockett,
member of last season’s Corvallis
high school state championship

Final Preparations for

Against Wagner Men
Coach Howard Hobson yesterday
announced his probable starting
lineup for Friday night, when Ore

Hoopers most likely to get the
call for this first fracas are John

This combination is made up of
four lettermen and one holdover
