Oregon Daily Emerald
Laddie Gale, the all-American
forward from last year’s Oregons
and a member of the present Ku
benstein Oregonians has “went
and done it.” In short, he has
signed to finish the winter in pro
basketball with Slim Wintermute
and the Detroit Eagles for a paltry
sum of $1100.
The former Oakridge star's loss
to the Rubes and to Lane county
this winter will be keenly felt. A
team can’t very well lose a 16
^ point per game man without know
ing the difference, and that's just
the clip all-American Laddie has
been potting buckets this year.
But wait a minute—don't start
weeping yet. Coach Howard Hob
son in all sincerity announces that
a whole team of Laddie Gales will
be in Eugene on Friday (tonight!
and Saturday nights. Yessir, Hec
Edmundson and his racehorse
Washington Huskies are facing
the Oregon varsity in a pair of
northern division games which
might bounce either club right out
of championship contention.
A Bunch of Laddie Gales
After returning from last week’s
two-game series against the Hus
kies in Seattle, Coach Hobby de
4 dared that “the present Washing
ton team compares favorably with
any average team of Hec's,” and
he added' that “they’re all big like
Laddie Gale.”
At one forward position is Two
Year Veteran Bob Dorr at only;
five foot eight, but take a look at
the other Husky first stringers.
There’s Bob Lindh, six foot one,
and Harry Nelson, six foot two, at
forwards. Big Hal Schlicting at
center ranges to six foot four. The
size of Hec's guards is what is
surprising when you think how
they would outstrech Oregon’s
great guard pair of last year, Bob
by Anet and Wally Johansen. The
Voelker brothers are like this:
Jack, six foot four, and Bob, six
foot two.
If Hec Edmundson wants to use
more altitude from the rest of his
squad he can use Wendell Larsen,:
6 feet 4 inches, Ralph Cummings,
r 6 feet 2 inches, Bill McDonald, 6
feet 5 inches, Dick Izzard 6 feet
4 inches, and Bill Fleming, 6
feet 5 inches. So you can see what
a gang of tall firs Uncle Hec can
use against Oregon’s Hank Ander
son, 6 feet 7 inches, Bill Borcher,
6 feet 5 inches, John Dick 6 feet
4 inches, and Archie Marshik, 6
feet 7 inches.
Washington’s Dead Maples
According to all rules and regu
lations, the Oregons are supposed
to edge out Washington tonight if
only on the basis of it being a first
night affair on their own floor. But
lor a visiting club to get the feel
of McArthur court’s maple boards
is a whit different than for enemy
clubs to adjust themselves quickly
to Washington’s own big pavilion.
Until Oregon’s national champs
did it last year (second night by
only two points) the Washingtons
weren’t supposed to have lost two
I consecutive home games since . . .!
way back.
Main reason . . . the floor of the
pavilion. It is taken out for indoor
track meets, etc., and for basket
ball is laid in sections . . . which
leaves a dead surface. Eleven <
times in Oregon’s first night game ,
up in Seattle last week did Hob-;
by's boys lose the ball because of j
it. They’d dribble down into Wash
ington territory, stop on a dribble
while looking for a mate to pass

Duel of Fast Break Billed for Tonight at McArthur
Ducks Face Huskies
In Division Set-To
Drive! Drive! Drive!
That will be the theme of the Oregon-Washington basketball
, game tonight which begins a two-game series between the two
arivingest teams in northern division play — a series that is
adjudged the most colorful of all northern conference games.
Coach Hobby Hobson of the national champion Webfoots
loves to play his team against a running team and likewise for
Frosh Mermen
To Meet Salem
Squad Today
Combined Team to
Furnish Opposition
For Dads' Day
The Oregon frosh. swimming
team meets a combined squad of
Salem high school and YMCA swim
stars today in the University pool
at 4 p.m. as an official part of the
Dads’ Day program.
Negotiations for the meet with
the capitol city team were opened
last week but no official reply wa.s
received until late yesterday after
noon when Salem authorities
phoned an OK for the contest.
Team Listed
Coach Russ Cutler has not yet
assigned his freshman swimmers to
the respective events, but swim
mers who will probably be entered
were Ralph Huestis, Bob Wagner,
Ralph Davis, Ken Powers, Dick
Allen, Lee Ghormley, Warren
Finke, Tom Corbett, and Diver
Earl Walrath.
Cutler said he had received only
one advance notice regarding the
Salem swimmers but added that
the one notice was enough to cause
him to worry over the outcome of
the meet, as the YMCA swimmers
were northwest champions last
The Salem team will be guests of
the Oregon swimmers and man
agers while here, and tonight will
attend the Oregon - Washington
game. !
Members of the Webfoot swim
varsity will act as officials for to
day’s meet. Junior Manager Bill
White is in charge of the meet.
Definitely scheduled meets for
the frosh include two with the Ore
gon State rooks on February 3 and
24, same dates as Oregon-OSC
varsity contests, and one January
31 with the Aero club swimmers
from Portland.
Wednesday, the frosh will meet
the Portland Aero club in the Uni
versity pool. The match will start
at 8 o’clock.

the dead pavilion boards. Eleven
times it bounced short and they
were called on broken dribbles in
attempting to recover, and on five
occasions the alert Huskies capi
talized with buckets.
Hard to Whip at Home
But tike the Washingtons are
hard to whip at home, so are Hob
by's Oregons in their own baiii
wiek. In Oregon’s last two cham
pionship years, '38 and '39, they
outran Hec Edmondson's galloping
Huskies at Eugene four times.
Only Oregon conference losses at
home in the last three years have
been one with Washington State
early last winter and that unfortu

a couple of weeks ago.

Coach Hec Edmundson of the sec
ond place Huskies of yesteryear.
Wild Battles
Last year in that still memorable
first game of the Husky series
here in Eugene, the two teams
rolled up 21 points in four minutes
and ten seconds of the second half.
It was a marvelous exhibition of
scoring and perfect teamwork.
This year, neither team has the
stars listed that they had last year.
Oregon has lost all-American Slim
Wintermute and Laddie Gale to the
Detroit Eagles, professional team.
All-American Bob Anet and Wally
Johansen, all-coast, are leading
Anet’s Oregons in quest of the
state AAU crown.
Many Gone
While in Washington George
Zeigenfuss, all-northern division,
Pat Dorsey, Roy Williamson are
playing for the Seattle Savidges,
AAU contender. The Huskies also
lost Dick Voelker and Harry Lock
hart. Oregon lost Bob Hardy and
Ford Mullen to professional base
There is little to choose between
the two teams. Last Friday night
Washington upset a favored Duck
team by an eight point margin in
Seattle. The next night Hobson
changed his lineup to include Ar
chie Marshik and Hank Anderson,
both six foot seven, and George
(Porky) Andrews, guard.
With added height the Webfoots
rolled over the Huskies and smoth
ered them under a 15-point margin.
It is said to be difficult to defeat
Washington on her own floor. Ore
gon is the only northern division
team to sweep a series from the
Husky on the Seattle floor in re
cent years.
An Advantage
Playing on their own floor must
be an advantage for a team be
cause Oregon is spotting six and
eight points cn the two games to
the Huskies by local betting sheets.
Hobson, disregarding any pos
sible superiority for either team,
has been sending his entire squad
through fast intersquad workouts
with the exception of yesterday.
Only Earl Sandness, Toivo Piippo,
and Tini Smith were in suit and
practised last night.
Probable starters for tonight will
be Captain John Dick and Hank
Anderson at forwards, Archie
Marshik at center, Vic Townsend
and Andrews at guards. This is the
same team that has been in green
all week and has an average of six
feet three and two-fifths inches.
If Edmundson starts Bob Lindh
and Harry Nelson at forwards, Hal
Schlicting at center, and Bob and
Jack Voelker at guards, his lineup
will average six feet two and three
fifths inches per n;an.
So take your choice.

Dallas Hi Will Tangle With Frosh Today
Dragon Quintet
Seeks Revenge
Over Ducklings
Prepsters Out to
Extend Victory List
In McArthur Court
Dallas high's giant-killing Drag
ons, led by a six-foot seven-inch
center, and with a record of eight
consecutive Willamette valley con
ference wins behind them, will be
after revenge when they meet
Oregon’s frosh for the second time
this season in McArthur court to
day at 4 o’clock.
Beaten by four points in their
first game with the Ducklings,
the Dragons, whose only other loss
this year has been to Salem, will
provide all the opposition John
Warren's high-flying frosh will
want. The Dallas quintet is hailed
as the greatest in the north end
of the state, and possibly one of
the best in the entire state. Led by
Lloyd Jackson, the towering cen
ter, and Melvin Dornbecher, bril
liant forward, the Dragons have
been sensational in their title
Only One Loss
Nor are John Warren’s Duck
lings any slouches at this game
called basketball. Injury ridden all
season, the yearlings have come
through with victories in nine out
of ten games, bowing only to a
strong Longview quintet. The fact
that these same frosh have already
beaten the Dragons once should
show their prowess.
Both teams come primed for the
kill, with lop-sided victories over
highly-touted opponents. The frosh
last Friday slaughtered The Dalles,
68 to 36, while Dallas was wallop
ing Chemawa's versatile Indians,
41 to 23.
After Revenge
The Dragon’s have a penchant
for revenge, and will be gunning
for the frosh this afternoon. Fol
lowing their Salem defeat, they
decisively turned the tables in a
second game, to administer the
Capital city quintet’s only loss.
Warren’s frosh seem to have
dodged their injury jinx for the
time, with only one first stringer
slated for the side lines. Jake
Werschkul, giant forward, is still
hobbling on a crippled ankle, and
it is doubtful whether he will see
Warren will probably start Tay
lor and Sidesinger at the forward
posts, with Borrcvik, high-scorer
on the team, at center. The Duck
ling's great combination of Kirsch
and Tuttle will be at guard.
The frosh will again see action
Saturday afternoon, with Multno
mah club’s Intermediates furnish

game, it will be played in the Ig
