Oregon State’s Beavers couldn't
have hit their hats if they'd worr
them over at Corvallis Saturday
But if any man, woman, or child
believes the men who take order.
from Slats Gill will be softies over
here this coming Friday, that in
dividual would do well to slip his
ideas into the nearest waste bas
ket before anybody sees them.
Never in history has Oregon
State dropped four games to the
Webfoots in one season, and the
Beavers have no intention of doing
so now. “Just one more chance"
is what they're asking for, and in
the Igloo Friday they'll get that

Oregon State’s offense didn't
function over there, but that was
last week. A wily mentor is Mr.
Gill and he may, with cooperation
of his disciples, have something
extremely unpleasant cooked up
for Friday p.m.
It used to be traditional that
Oregon never lost more than two
games in a season to Oregon State.
Then, in ’33, the Ducks lost all
four. Now it’s the Beavers’ turn
to feel the sharp edge of a crisp
new leaf as it turns over in the
book of tradition. But, turn or no
turn, there’s no assurance that
they’ll feel any pain.
Doing okay all around in the
shuffle with Gonzaga the other
night was tall Ray Jewell. He’s
the most improved man on the
Oregon squad, this big blond who
used to stand under the back
boards for Franklin high in Port
Jewell not only scored 15 points
against the Bulldogs but played a
fair floor game in addition. Strong
possibility is that he may crash
into the lineup against OSC Fri
day. With Jewell’s great improve
ment, Howard Hobson now has a
“big nine” from which to choose
instead of only the ballyhooed

Speaking of “big eights,” Gon
zaga has just exactly that. Ac
cording to Buck Weaver, Bulldog
publicity man, who handled the
team ..here ..while . Head ..Coach
Claude McGrath was enroute back
to Spokane on a hurry call, eight
men are the entire Bulldog team,
not merely the traveling squad.
All these basketeers play foot
ball for Mike Pecarovich, too, said
Weaver after the game. When
gridiron chores are over they
hustle info hoop togs and try to
catch up with the rest cf the
The Bulldogs, it seems, would
have a hard time getting up a good

Ou Igloo Court
Oregon’s recently dunked duck
ings will attempt to put another
nark in the win column tonight
when they travel to Halsey to
tackle the Halsey town team.

The Halsey contest will be the
fourteenth for the ducklings this
season. They have won ten and
ost three to date.

fireworks and will probably start
his first five.
The starting quintet in this
year’s games has been Ted Sar
pola and Bob Blenkinsop, for
wards; John Dick, center; Stan
Short and Matt Pavalunas, guards.
Others who will probably see ac
tion are: Paul Jackson, A1 Krietz,
Jimmy Jones, Wellington Quinn,

an easy victory.
Fast, smooth teamwork and ac
