on McArthur’s maple last night.
And here’s the tribute paid the
Ducks by the coach of the losers,
Amory T. (Slats) Gill: "Oregon

. . . yes, very good ball.”
But this wasn’t all the two old
cage rivals had to say. Here’s the
Coach Slats Gill: “I look for
quite a contest when Oregon plays
Washington next week. It’s diffi

I think Oregon's big men are bet

Coach Hobby Hobson: "We
played a little better the second
half. I can say we showed two
weaknesses tonight—shooting and

The tussle was tough not only
from the fans’ standpoint but from
the officials. Three of the Beaver
big boys, Tony Romano, Elmer
Kolberg, and Frank Mandic, along’
with little Bob Garbould, were
ousted with four personals each,
but take it from Referee Archie
Buckley of Spokane, it was not as
tough to “take” as the Orcgon
Idaho final game at Moscow. Buck
ley calls that one the hardest from
the referee’s standpoint he’s offi
ciated this year. “Both teams
played so hard,” says Buckley.

are a lot tougher than Washing
And Mr. Mai Harris ought to
know. He’s faced both teams on
the cage court twice.

Colorful Elmer Kolberg, one of
the boys who left the skirmish
considerably before the smoke of
battle had begun to lift, came out
of a blanket of steam which en

up his feelings with "We were

Oregon Team Boosts Hold on Second Place
With 13 Tallies
(Contrmed from parje one1
Oregon’s Laddie Gale and the j
rest of his mates weren’t too hot
on their shooting from the floor,
but they more than balanced it
with free throws. Oakridge Laddie
got seven of his 11 points from
the gift line. Center Slim Winter
mute was Oregon's deadest shot
from the field, getting five buckets
on 17 shots for 13 points and high
A firebrand from Long Eeach,
California, a newcomer this win
ter in the person of Bob Garbould,
held the Stater offense together,
getting loose for repeated shots.
He finished with nine tallies to 11
for Big Frank Mandic, Orange
center. Garbould got 14 shots.
Wally Hits It
Oregon took a temporary lead
after only 20 seconds of play when
Wally Johansen tipped in Winter
mute’s rebound shot, but goals by
Elmer Kolberg, Mandic, Tony Ro
mano, and Kolberg again gave
Oregon State an 8 to 4 lead after
only four minutes.
For six minutes the rivals —
much more friendly than in their
previous debacle at Corvallis —
battled along, checking tightly
with their zone defenses, allowing
but a free throw apiece.
Well past the middle of the first
half, the Beavers had a three-point
lead, 10 to 7, but Slim Wintermute
cut it down by pushing in a one
hander from the right corner.
Almost four minutes from the
end of the half Oregon trailed only
14 to 13, but Forward Garbould
got busy and boosted it along, the
Beavers leading, 19 to 14 at the

Oregon State never led again
after that. With Slim Wintermute
pushing in a couple of field goals,
and John Dick contributing a lay

Fighting for revenge ....
That’s what Honest John Warren's freshman basketball team will
be doing tonight on McArthur court when they meet their old rivals,
the Oregon State rooks, in their second battle of the “little” series.
The tilt will start at 8 o’clock.
Coach Bill McKalip, rook mentor, has had an undefeated season
so far this season having won six games. The Orange squad took the

the game, each holding sway over
the game at different times.

Frosh Drill Intently
Coach John Warren has been
drilling his Duckling squad in
tensely this week for tonight’s
battle. His maple pounders have
improved their passing and floor
work to quite an extent over their
last week’3 showing and should
give the State cousins a real battle.
Leonard Card, high scoring for
ward, is the spearhead of the frosh
attack, and will probably start at
that position. Doug Caven, ex-Eu
gene high star, will start at the
other forward berth.
A recent change in the lineup
will put Hal Sarkela, former Port
land prep player, at a guard spot
after Caven was shifted to forward
to take the berth formerly held by
Ross Kilborn, six-footer from Eu
gene. Don Galbreaith, Idaho all
stater, is at the other guard berth.
Warren has a choice of two tall
centers with the nod likely to go
to Les Thompson, Reedsport, 6
feet 4 inches tall, over Elliott
Wilson, 6-foot, 5-incher from Alli
ance, Nebraska. Thompson has
shown good improvement in recent
Coach McKalip will probably
start Don Stubberfield of Hoquiam,
Washington, at one forward with
Jack Mulder, of Vancouver, as his
John Mandic, lanky center, will
start at the jumping berth, with
Don Durden, Eureka, California,
and Paul Valenti, Mill City, Cali
fornia, at the guard posts.
The players from the state of
Oregon were left out in |he cold
when McKalip picked his starting
five, with three California boys
and two Washington boys making
the coveted positions.
Leonard Card leads the frosh
scoring in the “little" series thus
far with 10 points. Doug Caven
folows with 8 counters.
For the rooks, Don Stubberfield
is high with 12 points and John
Mandic is second with 10.
Oregon freshmen have won 9
out of the last 13 games played
against the rooks.
Warren started the season with

them due to ineligibility. Both boys
are now starring for Oregon Nor
