    DUCK TRACKS
By GEORGE PASERO, Co-Sports Editor
Oregon Daily Emerald
With the Atherton report and the resultant curbs on methods of
aiding athletes reverbrating up and down the coast, one Dick Hyland,
masterful and outspoken columnist of the Los Angeles Times, comes
out with the smartest bit of criticism of the situation yet read by your
correspondent.
Hyland, the man who presented UCLA with the booing champion
ship last fall as a result of conduct by Bruin rooters during the Oregon
game, raps the professors for their part in the "you-must-not” decrees,
suggests that these professors, high moguls of the Pacific Coast con
ference, spend every third year working for a living instead of pro
fessoring, so that they would at least begin to suspect that materia!
and practical items have their place in this world as well as do their
(quote) “fuzzy" theories . . . also that moralizing through proclama
tions is ineffective . . . that it’s against human nature.
Whew! 600,000 Pages
Furthermore, Hyland charges the professorial grand moguls with
( “failing to recognize the laws of the state and federation of states
under which we now live,” and shouts to high heaven that the officials
can't make their edicts “click.”
Quoting Hyland: “The Grand Moguls hired an ex-G-Man to snoop
for two years at a cost of $40,000, and acquire a flock of information
regarding what was going on in their own colleges. This information,
he placed, reputedly, in a 600,000-page report. My, oh, my! If this be
education and efficiency, give me ignorance and waste. I know half
a dozen sports writers on the Pacific coast who could sit in front of
their typewriters and produce sufficient verified data on 10 pages to
indicate and prove what has been taking place in the Pacific Coast
conference for years. Putting the same information on 600,000 words
is rank redundancy, simply repeating over and over what is already
proven.
Hyland’s Challenge
“At the moment your reporter is looking for a GOOD athlete. He
will subsidize that athlete. He will be a good student, or he is not a
good athlete, in my book. So his scholastic standing being equal to or
above that of the average college undergraduate, he will get in no
trouble on that score. He will go to a state college in the Pacific Coast
conference, whichever one he picks. AND LET US SEE BY WHAT
DENIAL OF HIS—AND MY—PRIVILEGES AND RIGHTS UNDER
THE STATE AND FEDERAL CONSTITUTIONS, MR. EDWIN
ATHERTON, COMMISSIONER FOR THE PROFESSORS, AND THE
PROFESSORS, WILL PREVENT THAT BOY FROM COMPETING
ON ATHLETIC TEAMS AT THAT COLLEGE SO LONG AS HE IS
ELIGIBLE IN ALL OTHER WAYS EXCEPT THROUGH THE
ACCEPTANCE OF FINANCIAL AID PROCURED THROUGH ME.”
ineyre stilt Tigers
No, Baseball High Commissioner Landis’ “crack-down” on the
Detroit Tiger’s diamond organization doesn’t affect the status of Bob
Hardy, Busher Smith, and Ford Mullen, the big three of Oregon’s
3939 baseball club and all members of the Tiger chain now.
How do we know? Well, Dick Strite of the Register-Guard, in order
to quiet rumors and speculation, wired back to the Chicago Associated
Press bureau, and the answer stated definitely that no mention of the
three players was made in the decision by Landis which cost the Detroit
club some $500,000 in cold cash and players. The clubs they were
affiliated with, Beaumont (Pitcher Hardy), and Lake Charles (Infield
ers Mullen and Smith), were mentioned in the ruling, however.
Who Said “Weak at the Boards?’’
Just a few figures to show that it was the shooting and not the
backboard work, as so many of us have opined, that beat the Ducks last
Friday in their game with Oregon State. Fact is, these Statistics, coin
piled by the McArthur court managers, show that the Ducks have been
mighty effective at the glass-boards all year ... in only one game,
the final Rubenstein affair, have Hobby's boys been outclassed, and
then it was excusable for the Ducks were dead on their feet after prob
ably the longest road tour ever made by a collegiate hoop team. Cer
tainly the longest of the year.
In the Oregon State game, the Oregons grabbed 27 rebounds to
Oregon State's 30, this despite a height handicap. Shooting, however,
was a different matter, the Ducks casting off 58 times and canning
only 8, a very poor 13.8 per cent. Contrast this with Oregon State’s
13 for 34 tries, or 38.33 per cent.
The Idaho games were different stories as far as shooting was con
cerned, the Ducks hitting 17 for 56 and 20 for 72 while Idaho was con
necting with 11 for 45 and 16 for 50.
At the boards in these two Vandal games, the Webfoots dominated
completely, taking 41 rebounds in the first game to 18 for Idaho and
36 in the second game to 33. Not so bad for a team that was supposed
to be weak in picking off rebounds.

Dallas Tonight
Roster Riddled by Foot Injuries
As Warren's Yearlings Face Seventh
Game in Valley City
By DON C. CAWLEY
With the Dallas high game slated for tonight, Honest John War
ren will be forced to floor a team minus four of his regulars. Don
Kirsch, John Tuttle, Warren Taylor, and Jake Werschkul will all be
on the side lines as the yearlings face their seventh high school op
ponent at Dallas.
Kirsch and Tuttle are definitely out of the contest with injured
ankles. Kerschkul has an injured foot, and Taylor has only an outside
cnance to piay, navmg naa six
stitches taken in a mouth injury
that he received in the scrimmage
against the varsity.
Bubalo to Start
Warren plans to start Sidesinger
and Bubalo at the forward slots,
Wally Borrevik at center, and
Reynolds and Baker at the guard
posts. These five probable starters
have been working quite well to
gether during the past few scrim
mages and should prove to be
worthy opponents for the Dallas
men.
The frosh record thus far stands
at five wins and one loss. Their
only defeat came at the hands of
the Longview Lumberjacks last
Saturday night in a game at Long
view. Don Kirsch is the pleading
scorer on the team to date, closely
followed by Wally Borrevik. Jake
Werschkul, who has 27 points to
his credit in only three games, has
the highest average on the team.

The Washington State Cougars
clawed their way into a tie for the
Northwest conference lead last
night at Pullman by downing Ore
gon State, 47 to 40, in an uproar
ious melee that saw five Beavers
and two Cougars leave the game
on fouls. The defeat, the Beaver's
first dropped them from the un
disputed lead, and was a disastrous
start for their Inland Empire road
trip.
Led by Bud Olson, high point
man for the evening, the Cougars
battled the Orangemen on even
terms during the first half, and led
by one point at the intermission,
19 to 18. In the second half, Wash
ington State pulled away as the
loss of Valenti, Hunter, Jack Mul
der, and the Mandic brothers weak
ened the Beaver squad.
Olson, who collected 15 points,
and Lindeman with ten were high
point men for WSC, while Tony
Romano led the Orange with 1-2
Jennings, Washington State cen
ter, provided the crowd with a
thrill when he sank a field goal in
the wrong basket, giving two
points to the Beavers. 4000 fans
watched the two teams commit 43
personal fouls in the roughest
game of the season.

Leave Friday
For Husky Meet
8 Men Placed on
Traveling Squad
By Coach Cutler
A nine-man University of Ore
gon swimming team, Coach Russ
Cutler, and Senior Manager Jim
Selders will head north Friday af
ternoon at 12:25 for Seattle and the
swim meet Saturday at 2 p.m. with
the University of Washington.
Eight swimmers making the trip
are definite, but the ninth man is
still in doubt. Fighting it out for
this position are Pierce Mallory,
Harold Chung-Hoon, and Jim Mar
nie, freestylers.
Mallory Fast
Mallory, a letter-earner last year,
is just a recent turnout whose
experience puts him on par with
the other two contestants, despite
his few workouts. Marnie, varsity
man last season who has been ill
and worked out this week for the
first time this term, is another
speedy freestyler. Harold Chung
Hoon, a Honolulu boy, placed him
self among varsity swimmers with
his fast times in recent intersquad
meets and in time trials.
Smith Out
A civil service examination, date
of which cannot be changed, will
keep Freestyler Jim Smith off the
traveling squad for the Seattle
trip.
Swimmers making up the squad
will include Ralph Lafferty and
Jack Dallas, breaststrokers; Gerald
Huestis and Sherm Wetmore,
backstrokers; A1 Sndner and Ralph
Cathey, divers; Jerry MacDonald
and Dick Smith, freestylers.
Cutler said his team would ar
rive in Seattle Friday night at
9:20 and taxi immediately to the
New Washington hotel. Following
the meet Saturday afternoon, the
team will attend the Oregon-Wash
ington basketball game in the
Husky pavilion. The return trip
will start at 11:30 Saturday night j
and finish in Eugene at 11:55 a.m. j
Sunday.

'Rebuilt’ Huskies,
Ducks Await Clash
By KEN CHRISTIANSON
I Coach “Uncle” Hoc Edmundson, ■
: Washington coach, is having his
I troubles with that driving basket
ball team which finished second
in division play to Oregon national
champs last year.
The genial Husky mentor lost
four of his last year's starters as
did Coach Howard Hobson of the
Webfoots. He has had to build his
1940 team around Big Bill McDon
I aid, rangy center and captain of
I the squad.
Both the Oregon and Washing
ton lineup will feature new faces
and forms compared to the squads
floored last year. These two teams
I will continue their fast-breaking
rivalry Friday and Saturday nights
in Seattle’s university pavilion.
Oregon had to rebuild its team
around John Dick, all-Western
j NCAA forward. '
Captain George Gone
With the loss of Pat DoPsey,
Hoy Williamson, Dick Voelker, Har
ry Lockhart, and last but not least
Captain George Ziegenfuss, Ed
mundson has been handicapped.
One of the “sparkplugs” of the
team is Bob Dorr, returning letter
man, who was out at the first of
the season with a bad heart. He is
back in the lineup now, but it is
not known how long he will be
able to stand the pace. McDonald
provides most of tire Washington
i height under the backboard.
One of the best men on the team
j is Sophomore Harry Nelson, all
I state player from Utah. He is a
i high scorer, tall, and wears glasses
| which doesn't hamper his shooting
I eye.
Voelker Boys Set
The two Voelker boys, Jack and
Bob, are probable starters for the
weekend clash. Jack is a forward
while Bob can play either forward
or guard and is only a sophomore.
Bob Lindh, another sophomore who
plays forward, has been going well
in games to date .He was an all
city choice in Seattle.
Against Minnesota, one of the
drivingest of the driving teams,
Washington boasted a four-inch
height advantage, yet the Gophers
ran over them. Washington was
able to take but one of three games
from the Minnesotans with a last
! minute scoring splurge.
Ducks Scrimmage
Washington split with Washing
ton State in their two first confer
ence games. The Huskies look the
first game with a one-point margin
in an overtime period.
Hobson, in preparing his Ducks
for their series with Washington,
scrimmaged them against Anet’s
Oregon’s last night. He used all 15
of his squad against the ex-Ore
gons.

HOBBY’S
BOYS
By LEN BALLIF
VIC TOWNSEND
Vic “Twinkletoes” Townaend
they call him. Although he has
been on the Oregon campus only
five months, young Townsend has
received more recognition for those
“twinkletoes” than most students
achieve in four years.
Vic first sprang into the lime
light at the AWS carnival, when
he won the jitterbug contest. Then
came basketball, and Townsend
won his way to the first string and
proved he belonged there when
Coach Hobson took the Ducks east
for nine gruelling games.
"Purdue was the toughest of the
teams we played,” said Vic.
“Yeh,” added John Dick, apply
ing the finishing touches to a coke,
“and Baltimore had the roughest.
Those boys didn't fool around
when they played basketball—they
went right out and played foot
ball!”
Up With Berry
Vic is a transfer from Compton
junior college, where he played
basketball on the same team with
Buck Berry and Dick Home two
years ago. His present athletic
status is that of a junior, although
this is his first year at Oregon.
“Officiating varies all over the
country,” claimed Vic. “Contrary
to some rumors, the officiating in
our New York game with Long
Island university was exceptionally
good. In some parts of the country
they call you for checking, in other
parts they don't.”
Although Townsend hails from
Huntington Park, California, he
said he likes Oregon weather, espe
cially for its versatility.
In the Ducks’ first two confer
ence games, Townsend scored 17
points, most of them the result of
a fast-break followed by a never
miss cripple shot.
dared Hobson, “Our team didn’t
look too impressive.”
The Oregon coach, Bob Officer,
trainer; Lloyd Robbins, student
manager, and an undetermined
number of players will leave at
9:10 a.m. Thursday.
