It’s a good thing the Igloo is
made of stout materials. If it
weren’t, it might burst tonight.
The Ducks and Bevos ought to
pack in the citizens like kippered
herring in fivc-cent tins. It may
be the largest crowd in McArthur
Whatever the attendance, it's
certain to be one of the “largest”
evenings on record at the old pavil
ion. This game has everything it
takes. A meeting of traditional
rivals and a fracas with bearing
on the championship—all in one
performance—and it isn't a double
Oregon State lias nothing to lose
tonight and everything to gain.
Art Merryman and company don’t
care cne tiny whit for Oregon’s
chances in this northern division
race. But they do care a few
assorted whits about pulling their
own record into the respectable
The Beavers may be hitting
their shots tonight instead of miss
•ijg them, as they did at Corvallis
last week. If they're “on,” any
thing may happen. They’ve taken
a lot of drubbings this winter, but
I’ve a sneaking suspicion that
those Beavers are going to be
mighty tough tonight.
Will it be another battle of zone
against zone or will Howard Hob
son shift to man-to-man ? He's
been using both in practice this
week, and the Ducks m^y use
either or both tonight. No infor
mation on that until tip-off time.
Oregon State publicity wheels
have ground out reams of stuff
about how Slats Gill has had some
thing new and devastating cooked
up for our Ducks prior to every
one of the intra-state clashes this
Well, the pot is still boiling, un
doubtedly, and the Beavers may
give us everything from broth to
filberts tonight. They may try to
hypnotize our Webfoots with pass
es or they may open up with every
type of trick from voodooism to
south sea island magic. Heck, you
really can't tell. Slats Gill has a
new heir, you know, which may
inspire the Beavers to greater
Don’t be surprised if Laddie Gale '
and Itay Jewell get in there for a
few licks tonight. The two big
beys were clicking in apple pie
order against Gonzaga and Tutor j
Hobson intimates that they may
get a nod this eve.
From sophomores and reserves!
to seniors, and you can see for the j
last time in a northern division
game at McArthur court three
Webfoots—John Lewis, Ken Pur
dy, and Bill Courtney. Tonight will
be their finale in green jerseys
here, for they’ll be toting away
sheepskins In June.

Yes, indeed, there will be “civil
war" tonight. This “civil war"
stuff is getting a bit ragged, sure,
but what can you do when these
battles keep popping up ? Tonight
will finish the business for this
season, and if you can’t guess the
name of this p.m.'s battle you’d
better retire to the little red school
house and hurl spitwads at the
girl in the blue print dress and
pigtails across the aisle.
Obvious setup is the siege of
Richmond. And we’re hoping Gen
eral Robert E. Gill and his troops
will be handing over their swords
in abject surrender at Appomatox
— aw, make it Junction City —
when the shots are over.
The booming basketeers of Stan
ford, for all their Hank Luisetti,
are moaning. At least their sup
porters are moaning for them. Re
ports from down Palo Alto way
hint that Johnny Bunn and his
boys may not come north this year.
You see, the .Stanfords are play
ing Southern California tonight
and tomorrow and three of Mr.
Bunn’s basketeers are more or less
incapacitated. As if Mr. Bunn
didn't have plenty of reserves.
None other than Mr. Hank Lui
setti himself is listed as one of the
maimed. He’s also listed as one of
those who “may” play after all.
Another is Art Stoefen, towering
brother of Tennis Ace Les Stoefen.
He's also on the recovery road.
Both lads had minor injuries.
And now Jack C’alderwood,
sparkplug guard, is out, with, of
all things, a case of poison oak.

of the best-played games of the
Both teams played excellent vol
leyball, a superior attack of kill
shots brought the Phi Delts their
victory. In the opening encount
er, the score was even throughout
the game, with the Yeomen edging
out a victory after the count was
tied at 13-all.
In the second tilt, the Phi Delts
ran up a sizable lead and then
staved off the Yeomen rally to
even the game count.
Yeomen Switch Lineup
After training, 13 to 3, in the
final game, the Yeomen switched
their lineup and nearly overtook \
their opponents in the hardest j
played game of the series. The
Phi Delt victory kept them in the
ranks of unbeaten teams.
Stars were Ed Strohecker, Ken

Dissatisfied with his Ducklings,

his proteges through two full prac

In one contest the Webfoot year

During the two contests Coach
Warren used 11 of his lads, work
ing them in frequently. Against
Coburg the first stringers piled up
a 34-to-10 halftime advantage, and
then retired in favor of reserves.
Bobby Blenkinsop, Duckling for
ward, contributed the evening’s
main scoring performance, netting
22 tallies against St. Mary's. The

the first 1C minutes.

divided among the rest of War

When Oregon’s fighting Web
foots and Oregon State's danger
ous Beavers lock horns at MacAr
thur court tonight, it will be for a
75th time a veritable diamond
Since first record of Oregon-Ore
gon State hoop rivalry in 1917, the
Webfoots have won 38 games to
the Beavers’ 36. Oregon State
went into this year’s four-game
series with a slight edge, but three
straight Oregon victories have
swung the pendulum once more.
Few of the 74 encounters in the
last 20 seasons rival tonight’s in
interest and importance. The larg
est crowd in McArthur court his
tory is a possibility this evening,
and that crowd is due to see a
game which may have everything.
