It's almost definite now that
either the Oregon or Oregon Stat<
basketball team will get a bid ft
play a series of games in the Ha
waiian Islands this spring ... the
big question is which will it be,
Beaver or Duck?
At the start of the season, the
favorite to make the trip was Ore
gon, chiefly because of prestige
accumulated by Coach Hobby
Hobson and his national cham
But now, with Oregon State
leading the northern division title
chase, it looks very much like the
Beavers are in the contention . . .
and what’s more, their case is a
strong one, since a brother of
Slats Gill, Orange mentor, is one
of the interested sports promoters
of the islands . . . also the hoop
coach of Hawaiian university.
One of the top Oregon boosters
Is Don Watson, sports editor of
the Honolulu Star-Bulletin and a
former Webfoot. In a column
spread given to us by Bun Hod
gen, brother of Jack Hodgen, an
Oregon graduate who is now ath
letic director of athletics at Kame
hameha schools in Hawaii, Writer
Watson really plugs Coach Hob
son and Webfoot basketball.
According to Chuck Ehton,
sports writer the past year for the
Star-Bulletin and now back on
the campus, Oregon men are plen
tiful on the islands and are very
active in promoting University af
fairs whenever possible.
These points are in Oregon’s fa
vor, but the final decision as to
whether Webfoot or Beaver gets
the Hawaii plum may rest on final
northern division standings . . .
just an added incentive for Ore
“Doctor” Hoyman, to You!
Remember Mike Hoyman, the
Oregon swim coach who- turned out
those great championship teams
which featured Sprinter Ji mHurd,
the Reed brothers, Jim and Chuck,
and Diver Leo Sexton. . . .
Well, Mike writes from New
York to congratulate the Oregon
splash team apd Coach Russ Cut
ler for their smashing win over
the University of Washington . . .
yes, he learns about Webfoot tri
umphs even in the "Big Town."
At present Hoyman is attending
Columbia university of New York,
working for his doctorate. Last
semester Mike was in the Univer
sity of Michigan School of Public
Always a basketball fan, Mike
asks about the 1940 Oregons . . .
bemoaning the fact that he has
heard little of them. ... as usual,
though, his biggest interest is
Jack Dallas and Sherm Wetmore,
Oregon’s great tankmen. . . . Mike
brought the two Long Beach boys
to Oregon just before he headed
east in 1937 and predicted a great
future for them. . . his only regret
was that he could not have stayed
around to watch them develop.
For those who might want to
write to Hoyman, his address is:

Coed Rifle Experts
Defeat Wichita Girls
In its first postal match of the
year, the Oregon girls’ rifle team
upheld its perfect record, winning
over the University Wichita, girls’
team with a score of 085 points to
968, according to results announced
yesterday by Sergeant Harvey
Blythe, team instructor.
Each school used a ten-man
team, shooting its targets on its
own ranges, and mailing the scores
last Saturday. The 17-point lead
of the Oregon team was the result
of some fine marksmanship on the
part of the home girls as the
marksmen on both teams shot in
the high nineties. Thelma Bouchet,
manager of the Duck team, posted
a perfect score of 100 points.

team were Thelma Bouchet, Mar

Oregon’s reputation as a winter
sports center was given a healthy
boost last weekend when the Web
foot ski team walked off with
fourth place in the University of
Nevada Winter Carnival and ski
tournament. Last year in the same
tournament the Duck snowmen
placed thirteenth cjuite a jump
for a two-year-old.
Bert Hagen, one of the team's
aces, thought the carnival was a
four-star deal. “You don’t have
to ski to enjoy yourself,’’ said
Bert. “They throw swell parties
According to Bert, Oregon could
stage a carnival that would sur
pass anything on the coast. They
could use the slalom and downhill
courses that were used in the 1938
National tournament. The jump is
one of the best on (he coast and
the Timberline setting is perfect.

Cougar Battles May
Affect League Lead
By KEN CHRISTIANSON
The Cougar from Pullman, Washington, home of Washington
State, comes Monday and Tuesday nights to bound on McArthur court
against Oregon’s basketball quintet. Game time is 8 p.m. for both
Those Washington Staters are big and rangy and are considered
one of the best teams of individual ball-handlers in the Northwest.

cut into the basket with a wide
open path before them.
Coach Jack Friel’s Cougars are
considered one of the toughest
teams in the conference to stop
when their morale is as high as it
is now. They rank in second place
in conference standings.
The picture may be altered con
siderably by the time the boys
from Washington step onto the
Oregon campus, for they played
Oregon State in Corvallis last
night and they play the Beavers

Should Washington State tip
Oregon State twice, then they will
be entrenched in lop spot and Mon

be for first place in the northern
The type of offense stressed by
Friel in Pullman is similar to that
of Gill-coached Beaver teams.
However, it is faster. It might be
typed half-way between that of
Oregon State and Washington as
far as speed is concerned.
Big Paul Lindeman, six foot
seven center, leads the Cougar at
tack under the backboards. But
little Bud Olson is the spark of
the Washington Staters. Before
last night's game he ranked ninth
in the individual scoring race with
61 points in seven games.
Jack Jennings and Bill Chase,
forwards, placed fourteenth and
fifteenth, respectively, indicating
a well-balanced scoring team. Not
to be forgotten is Johnny Iloopcr,

under the backboard. With these
three averaging six feet six inches

should go to the Ducks.
At guards Coach Hobby Hobson
