Half the season is now over,
and on the surface it looks like
our Ducks are in. They have won
seven games and lost three, one
each to Oregon State, Washing
ton, and Montana.
Of the games that they have
won, four have been on clean
sweeps of their series with Mon
tana and Washington State, while
they have single victories over
OSC, Washington, and another
over Montana on the recent road
That, however, is very little of
the story. The Ducks have a se
ries with the Huskies, who recent
ly outran them in the north, a se
ries with Oregon State, slow break
and all, and a road trip into the
Palouse hills to say nothing of a
return engagement with Idaho’s
Vandals here at McArthur court.

The Huskies are the first worry,
and they are worry enough. If the
Ducks play set ball like Gregory
says they did in Seattle when they
scored 20 points in 10 minutes,
they have a good chance to trip
If they try to outrun Uncle Hec
tor’s boys as they did in Seattle,
they increase their chances of get
ting their ears pinned back.
Trying to outrun the Huskies is
like giving my brother two trow
els and trying to outeat him—it
can’t be done, although the Hus
kies will come here on the end of
a road trip. They play two games
with OSC before corning here.

The game started at an even

slight lead of 5 to 3.
In the second period the games
were speeded up with the ball

Sammies Slap Fijis
For Handball Wins
Sigma Alpha Mu scored a two
to-one win over the Fijis Thursday
in intramural handball. Louis
Rotenberg of the Sammies won the
first singles event by setting Dick
MHutchison down, 21-12, 21-0.
Fiji John Maeder eked out a vic
tory from Bob Herzog, 17-21, 21-9,
21-13. However, the Sammy
doubles team of Barr and Shim
shak put the match on ice by win
ning from Francis and Shulz by
identical scores of 21-10, 21-10.
In one of the wildest, wierdest
games of the year, the Canard
club (A) team defeated Pi Kappa
Alpha, 19 to 15, yesterday.
The Pi Kaps started to run away
with the game, scoring a basket
approximately every five minutes,
and running up a five point lead
before the clubmen could score.
The clubmen rallied, however, and
were trailing by one point at the
half, 7 to 6.
The second half was an entirely
different matter. Led by Wolfe
and Marsee, Canard sank three
goals in quick succession, and were
never again headed. The Pi Kaps
did not score again until midway
in the last quarter, and then the
clubmen held a 16 to 7 lead.
There was never a calm moment
in the game. Referee Dick Hutch
ison dished out 22 personal fouls
to the two teams, and both Currie
and Shepherd of the Pi Kaps left
the game on personals. Larsen of
the losers was determined to play
basketball, however, and led all
scorers with 8 points. Wolfe and
Marsee scored 6 apiece for the win

After Long Journey
Still perched on top of the nor
thern division standings by one full
game after an even break in four
games on the road, Coach Howard
Hobson's point-minded Oregon
Ducks returned to Eugene yester
day to await the Washington in
vasion of McArthur court Monday
and Tuesday nights.
The Webfoots split two games
with both Montana and Washing
ton on thier 1600 mile journey to
Seattle and Missoula to keep ahead
of the pack. The even break, how
ever, had one costly effect. It cut
Oregon’s lead from 2 games—the
margin the Ducks held on leaving
for the north—to one game.
Travel weary and tired, but oth
erwise pronounced in good physical
condition by Hobson, the Ducks
were given the day off yesterday.
The young mentor will send his
charges through light workouts
Friday, Saturday and possibly Sun
Although admitting that he had
hoped to win at least one more
game on the trip, Hobby praised
his boys yesterday. “They kept
driving," the Duck cage coach
said, “and they didn’t let a defeat
get them too downhearted, coming
back harder than ever in the sec
ond game of both series to win.”
Anet Out Soon
The play of Bobby Anet, Laddie
Gale, Wally Johansen and Slim
Wintermute was outstanding in
every game, Hobson said, although
Anet was ejected from the first
Washington game — the one the
Ducks lost—after only seven min
utes of play.
The high altitude at Missoula—
nestled in the midst of the Rocky
mountains—was one of the factors
contributing to the Ducks’ defeat
in the first Montana game. The
kids weren't off their game, but
they were sluggish in their play,
Hobby particularly liked the play
of big Bill Lazetich and Jim Seyler
of Montana. Burley Bill scored 37
points in the two games while the

By LYLE NELSON
Paced by Evert McNeeley, who scored 18 points, Honest John War
ren's frosh squad had an easy time winning from the Santa Clara
“Red Lions,” 69 to 26 in a fast game last night. #
The highly touted Ducklings jumped to an early 10-to-0 lead and
were never headed. Shortly after the opening whistle Earl Sandness
slipped under the bucket to can a one-handed shot and give the Duck
lings first blood. Marshik and Andrews then scored in quick succession
to bring the count to 6 to 0.
Russell of the R.ed Lions then
fouled Marshik and the big frosh
center hit both shots.
Andrews Drops Cripple
Andrews followed through with
a cripple to give the Ducklings the
10-to-0 lead. At this point Russel
of Santa Clara slipped away from
his man to net a one-handed shot
from the corner, making the score
10 to 2.
The frosh then followed with
baskets by Sandness, Andrews and
McNeeley, which completely dazzl
! ed the Santa Clara five. With ten
minutes remaining in the first half
the score was 24 to 4 in favor of
the Oregon lads.
New Team In
At this point Coach Warren sent
in a complete new team and the
substitutes gathered only 9 more
counters in the remaining 10 min

RALPH GREENLEAF WINS
In a special interview during
his recent championship play in
Philadelphia, Ralph said: “I’d say
the most important rule in this
game is to have healthy nerves. And
on that score, I think, Camels have
a lot extra to offer. One of the
main reasons why I’ve stuck to
Camel cigarettes for twenty years
is — they don’t ruffle my nerves.”
And America as a nation shows the same
preference for finer tobaccos that Ralph Greenleaf does!
Camels are the largest-selling cigarette in America
(.Left) College Senior ART WALDO says:
"Yes, Camels are the favorite here on the
campus. I get more enjoyment from
Camels—they're tops for mildness.”
(Right) "The way these light boats bounce
around knocks the daylights out of my
digestion! Camels help my digestion to
keep on an even keel," says MLTLFORD
SCULL, outboard motorboat racer.
(Left) JAMLS L. CLARK, famous scientist
and explorer, says: *'I always carry plenty
of Camels with me into the wilderness.
*Td walk a mile for a Camel!’”
(RigLt) "I’m devoted to Camels,” says
111LEN HOWARD, spring-board diver.
"They don't irritate my throat —not even
when I’m sitting around in a wet suit, a
target for irritation.”
