On the road this year, Oregor
has lost five games and won onh
three, at first blush making th<
Wobfoots’ road trip record seen
to be very bad.
However, this is not the case
Instead of disastrous road trip:
being the exception this year, the’
are the vogue.
On the road this year, the Uni
versify of Washington’s Huskie:
have had an equally bad year. Or
their trip into this sector of thi
northern division they lost threr
out of four.
During the super extravaganzc
when they played six games ir
something like eight or nine days
they lost two out of six contests
This was on the trip during which
they played WSC, Montana, anc

Idaho also lost three out of foui
games on their first and to date
only real road trip. When the Van
dals swung through Montana anc
Washington on their journey, they
dropped two to the Grizzlies and
one in Seattle.
In addition they were also de
feated when they hopped over a
few miles to I’ullman. Where the
Vandals shine is also the strong
hold of our Ducks—the home floor,
The Vandals have lost only one
game at home, that one was tc
Hec Edmundson's Huskies.
Washipgton State's Cougars
have a little better record on the
only real road trip which they
have made so far this year. They
defeated Oregon State twice, then
lost both games to the Ducks in
their swing through the Oregon

have not won a game on the road
this season, while Slats Gill’s Beav
ers have won only two, both at
So you see, Oregon’s prolific
losses on the road are really not
‘O much to worry about, although
here is no doubt that they would
have a much better chance to kick
through with a title had they
breezed through with a few more
victories on the road.
In the meantime they have three
of their five remaining at home,
while the Vandnls und the Cou
gars, the two villiuns in the east
so far us we are concerned, have
five of their six games away from
The next question is whether the
Ducks home record will save them
from the depredations of the Van
dals, or will the Vandals roast the
Ducks like they did when they had
the Ducks in their own back yard.
As if it wasn't bad enough to
have to get past Forest Twogood’s
club, the Ducks then have to climb
over the Orangemen, tutored by
nunc other than Slats Gill.
If memory serves us right, Gill’s
men have six victories to their
credit, and EVERY VICTORY IS
OVER A FAST - BREAKING
TEAM. Montana four times, Ore
gon once, and Washington once.
At the same time OSC holds no
victories over either Idaho or WSC,
who play almost as slowly as the
Beavers, In other words if any
body is to stop Idaho it will have
to be tile Ducks with the Cougars
holding an outside chance to come
out on top in one of their games '
with the Idahoans.
If we can stop the Vandals, we
will have to do something to the1

Mallory, Sanders Take Events
Jack Dallas and Sherm Wetmore lived up to their reputations as
all-American swimmers last night when each unofficially broke the
Pacific coast intercollegiate record in his event.
Incidentally, Mike Hoyman's strong freshman swimming team took
every first place as they swamped University high, 47 to 19.
Dallas, using his unorthodox butterfly stroke, raced through the

The present Pacific coast record o:
1:10.5 was made by Clark of Stan
ford in 1933.
Wetmore followed his swimmatt
by running away from the field ir
his specialty, the 100-yard back
stroke. Wetmore’s time was 1:04.1
while the coast record is 1:06.8 set
by Tebbets of Stanford in 1933.
Marnie High Scorer
Jim Marnie was high scorer foi
the evening with a total of 11%
points. He won firsts in both 4C
and 100-yard sprints and swam ir
the 160-yard relay team.
Marnie furnished the only othei
fast time of the meet when he
nosed out his teammate, A1 Sand
ers, in :19.8. The Pacific coast
record stands at :19.1.
Sanders captured the 220-yarti
