I’m going to have a heap of difficulty pounding out this
column. For five days now iny chin lias not felt the delicate
caress of my roommate's razor and the whiskers thereupon have
sprouted to such a length that they keep getting tangled and
snarled in the keys of this machine. Not that I mind that,
I have Dr. Furless’ Sensational Scalp Singe-er which is
this year equipped with an automatic oven, along with three
burners and a place to keep toothbrushes, right beside me
and am keeping the typewriter close-croppel. But it is
raising havoc with my beard. By the way, how is the havoc
crop this year? My uncle down on his farm never mentions
it in his epistles to me, and congress didn’t include it in
the current crop control legislation.
1 was reading the daily sheet of Iho Beavers today and
found out that Slats (till is the finest coach on the coast. And
why is (Jill the best of the coast mentors? Because his team
beat Oregon the other night. (Sill’s slovv-break offense is being
hailed as the finest thing ever developed.
Now why just one little victory over Oregon should in
spire the Beavers to rise to such ecstasies of journalistic
blubberings I can’t say. After all, Oregon only has a basket
ball team, composed of five members. I definitely think
Oregon did not play the ball they are capable of that
Saturday night at Corvallis. I am not trying to belittle the
victory of the Staters, because they did win, and their team
that night was the best on the floor.
One victory, however, doesn’t make a season. And one vic
tory doesn’t prove anything. If they win again this season,
they will probably run (iill for president on the Republican
ticket. On the Republican ticket because they seem to be using
the slow break system themselves in regards to the presidential

The loss of big Bob Hardy is certainly a blow to Oregon.
The shifty ex-Oregon Normaler was beginning to absorb tin
Hobson system perfectly, lie had worked himself into the start
ing lineup and was really performing in good style before that
unfortunate break. But however great the loss, it is not. irre
parable. John Dick proved in the Oregon State series that he
can be counted on in the pinches.
John is big, fast and rangy, but has not yet the experience
that Hardy possessed. He should prove to be a capable under
study to Dave Silver at one of the forward posts.

It might be mentioned here for those of you who haven't
heard that the hot (dm Stanford Indians took one on the chin
against IISC the other pm. In fact under the same circum
stances, almost, as Oregon dropped theirs. The Indians dropped
the Trojans the first night then were nosed out 49 to 48 in the
second tilt. Which all goes to prove that it is open season on
teams that are being ranked as tops in their division. So if any
ot you kids are down-hearted about the Ducks dropping one,
forget it. It happens to all of us. Even 1 dropped six cups the
other night in the kitchen. Was I down-hearted? I'll say I was.
But I dug down and bought some new ones.

By WES JOHNSON
Paced by a couple of scoring latl.s,
Harry Adams and Rudy Kappel, ex
Oregon State prodigy, who scored
12 and 13 points respectiveley, the
Betas scored an easy win over
Campbell Co-op, 42-11.
The game started slowly but
gradually increased its pace as it
went on. The half-time score was
20 to 8 for the Betas. Then in the
second half they put on a “Hobson”
scoring spree and scored 20 points.
Rudy Kappel was the outstanding
man on the floor playing with ease
and finesse which found him a berth
on Slats Gill’s state squad last sea
son. Madera was high man for the
Co-ops with 5 points.

With but a few seconds to play and
the score tied at 15 all, Carter
Putsch, Phi Sig guard made a crip
ple shot to break the tie and win
the game, 17 to ID.
The game was a see-saw affair
throughout with both sides taking
turn in having the lead. However,
just before the end of the first half,
the Phi Sigs scored three baskets!
I in succession giving them a lead of
11 to 5.
This margin gradually dwindled
as the Zeta hall quintet got hot and
tied the score 15 to 15. The dam
age was done mainly by Keller, who
was high point man for the Zeta
five with 8 tallies. He was closely
followed by Whitnack who garnered
5. Carter Fetsch with 9 points cap
tured high point honors for the Phi
Sigs, Stan Hobson followed with 4.

SAEs 22, Kappa Sig, I I
Scoring their first victory of the
current season the SAEs defeated
a scrappy Kappa Sig quintet, 22 to
14, yesterday afternoon in a very
hotly contested game.
The game was played at a torrid
pace through the entire 20 finutes
of play. The SAEs held a slight lead
at the end of the first quarter of
(i to 4. In the second quarter the
Kappa Sigs rallied to forge ahead,
10 to 8, a few minutes before the
half, but this lead was very short
lived, for the SAEs connected for 3
quick baskets to go into the lead,
14 to 10, at the half-time period.
The second half was an entirely
different story, for the SAEs really
got hot and potted enough points to
come out on top with S points to
spare. Towards the last few min
utes of the fray the game was fast
becoming a very rough contest to
be called a basketball game. The
gun sounded thus ending any out
break of fist swinging.
Arleigh Bentley and Tom Jacobs
tied for high point honors with 6
apiece for SAE, while Carter was
high for Kappa Sig with t! tallies.
One of the outstanding features of
the game was the clever floor play
of John "Mose" Caldwell who clev
erly' annoyed opposing players with
his skillful ball handling.

Scoring an easy win over an
outclassed Omega hall team, the
Alpha Tau Omega five, defending
champions, appeared well on their
way towards another title this
The ATOs began their scoring
early in the game and at half time
held a 16 to 5 lead. Not only did
last year’s champs score an addi
tional 16 points in the final half,
but they held the Omega boys to
only one free throw.
Miller of the ATOs was high
point man of the game with 12
points, followed by Stafford who
hit the bucket for 10 points.

Coming from behind in the first
quarter, the Chi Psi quintet rallied
to win a hard fought 18 to 14
victory from the Phi Kappa Psis.
After a quarter of very ragged
playing the score was 7 to 4 for
the Phi Psis. Then Osborne and
Sullivan of the Chi Psi crew began
hitting the hoop and soon pulled
them ahead to a 12 to 7 lead at
From this point the Chi Psis
were never headed, although the
hard fighting squad from 11th
street managed to creep within
three points of them. At this point
Richard Sleeter, who had proven
himself outstanding in the Phi Psi
rally in addition to scoring eight
points, was thrown to the floor in
a, mad scramble for the ball. He
received a very badly cut eye and
was taken from the game. This
put an end to the Phi Psi rally and
Lhe score ended 18 to 14.

Hobby Works Basketeers
In Preparation for Series
With Speedy Montanans
Apparently Coach Howard Hob
son is still undecided as to which
five men to start against Jiggs
Dahlberg's fast-breaking Grizzlies
Friday and Saturday night, as both
nights so far this week he has
used several different combina
tions with nine men alternately
working at the five positions.
Working yesterday on a fast
break after taking the ball off the
backboard, Coach Hobson used
Bobby Anet and Wally Johansen
at guards, Slim Wintermute at
center, and John Dick and Ted
Sarpola at forwards.
Later when scrimmaging the
frosh, Anet, Johansen, Winter
mute, and Sarpola again started,
but this time Laddie Gale took
over the other forward position.
Later Dick replaced Wintermute
and Pavalunas went in for Johan
sen. Ford Mullen saw action a few
minutes later whon he took over
Anet’s guard position.
The frosh with Marshik and Al
len at G feet t> inches and the
scrapping Sandness at 6 feet 1
inches gave the varsity plenty of
backboard competition. However,
the Ducks should have an easy
time under the backboard against
Montana as the Montanans' tallest
hooper is their center, Jim Seyler,
who is (5 feet 2 inches tall.
In addition to this there are
only four Grizzlies over the six
foot mark, while four more mea

Honest John Warren
Has Frosh Working
Fundamentals—and more funda
mentals were being digested by
Coach Honest John Warren’s frosh
hoop men this week, as the burly
Duckling mentor sent his charges
through intensive drills for their
game with Longview next Satur
Warren’s chief concern at pres
ent is to iron out the rough spots
in his team's passing and defensive
play, with special emphasis on
working plays against a zone de
fense. ' In their game with Van
couver high school last Saturday,
the Ducklings were all but stymied
in their attempts to fathom the
prepper’s defense set-up.
Smith, Igoe Are Sparks
Another problem confrontin':
"Honest” John is finding a “spark
plug” to replace Don Mabee in the
lineup. None of his regulars seem
to possess that intangible gift of
inspiring a team to give its best
performance. “Tiny” Smith and
Pete Igoe have proved to be a pair
of sparks to the team but both of
them are seriously handicapped by
their size, according to Warren.
Following the Longview tilt Sat
urday afternoon at 3 o’clock in the
Igloo, the Ducklings will again
settle down to drill in preparation
for an invasion of Eastern Oregon.
Tentatively listed as opponents for
the team are Hood River, Baker,
Pendleton, and La Grande high
Campus prognosticators are giv
ing the Lumberjacks from Long
view a good chance to upset the
frosh in view of their 33 to 12 vic

lings had considerable difficulty
with the Trappers in downing
them 29 to 21, however, it was the
first time during the season that
Warren’s men had encountered a
ball team for three years. In ten
nis lie played in several tourna
ments, and made his way to the
playoff in the central California
Lithe, six feet two, he is armed
with a determined aim to venture
into the muddy waters of politics,
as he believes that everyone should
have his fling sooner or later. In
fact, about the only bad thing we
could find about him is that his
grade point is much comparable
to our own.
