All roads lead to Seattle this
weekend, and the ears of all who
don't take to the road will take to
the radio. Our Webfoots shove off
at 12:10 today, and they'll be head
ing toward the greatest series an
Oregon basketball team has en
gaged in for a decade.
Every student on this campus
should be solidly behind Hobby
Hobson and his fighting lads. Both
V games will be broadcast over
KORE and it's a 33-to-l bet that
most of the dials in Eugene will be
tuned to one spot.
The lads CAN beat Washington.
They've done it before and there’s
every reason to hope. It’s been
ten years since Oregon nabbed a
northern division crown. In the
same time the Huskies have won
seven. It’s our turn. It's just a
Jiunch, but here's a prophecy that
Hobby and Anet, Wintermute,
Lewis, Johansen, Silver, Gale, and
the rest of cur fighting gang
WILL do it.
On all sides they’re telling- us
that the tip-off in basketball is
doomed. A thousand gleeful voices
are rallying to defeat it and they
Y proclaim in raucous tone that it

ers this very season.
Probably so. Maybe it’s on the
way out for good. But where
there’s life there’s hope that the
“pause that refreshes,” or, more
aptly, the pause that emphasizes
the dramatic moments of the
grand old game, will not be elim

Down in the southern division
they go for no-tip basketball. They
like the big scores and the con
tinuous action.' Hec Edmundson, a
champion FOR the tip in the nor
thern division, said when he was
here last month that he didn’t see
how the tip could survive another
season. Last year, he said, it was
the opposition of eastern delegates
that kept the coaches and rule
manufacturers from turning their
thumbs down on it.
This year they’ve been trying
test games without it back east,
heralding a new era and so forth.
They’ve used no-tip rules in Caii

Final Play-off Contest
In Three Weeks
The 1937 Pacific Coast basket
ball campaign will come to a ring

Oregon’s Webfoot’s and the Wash
ington Huskies come out of theii
series with a crowned champion.
Down in California the southerr
division championship is definitely
settled, although the Friday con
tests remain to be played. Stan
ford’s rampaging Indians clinched
their second consecutive title last
Saturday with a hard earned tri
umph over the second-place South
ern California Trojans.
Tentative Dates Set
Stanford will come north this
season for the usual two out of
three game play-off against the as
yet uncrowned northern division
The Indians may play in Eugene,
Seattle, or Pullman, depending up
on Friday and Saturday’s import
ant contests. Tentative play-off
dates are set for March 26, £7,
and 28.

Lots of fans seem to like it, but,
somehow, one wonders. The only
glimpse of tip-off-less hall we’ve
had here this winter was one half
of the UCLA game, and that
wasn't taste enough to leave much
impression one way or another.
It seems to this humble com
mentator that eliminating the tip
would take a lot of color out of
the game. After a field goal in a
crucial moment, or any moment,
spectators need a paiftie to empha
size it, digest it, enjoy it.
The rush back to center of the
players, with the lights glistening
on their shining suits and sweating
bodies, then the tense second as the
centers crouch, the players antici
pate, the fans thrill—these things
will all be missing without the tip.
* * *
Also missing when the tip is
gone, if such befalls, will be a lot
of the last-minute rallies that
make so many basketball games
indelible memories to all who see
When a team four points behind
in the final minute of play scores
a field goal, instead of having an
other desperate chance to tie it up,
it will be penalized, put on defense,
as the team ahead takes the ball
out of bounds and keeps it to stall
away the time. The short-ender
won't have that old fighting
chance at the finish.
Elimination of the tip-off after
free throws has, undoubtedly,
speeded up the game and has prob
ably helped it. But free throws
are, in comparison with field goals,
colorless. They count just half as
much, and need of emphasizing
and dramatizing them is less.

In the opening of the B league
semi-finals, the Phi Delts ousted
the Betas 15-1, 15-4. The Betas
’ were unable to get going, and
faulty set-ups were the main rea^
son for their one-sided losses.
SPE B Team Wins
In the day's thriller, the SPE B
team edged out a close victory
over the Pi Kaps, 15-13, 14-16, and
15-13. Neither team had any par

the breaks to win points.
In tomorrow's championship
contests, the Phi Delts will face
the Betas for the A league crown.
Owing to their excellent showing
throughout the season, the Phi
Delts are favored to cop the title.
