Bleak, ribbed walls surrounded a barren floor where
just a few minutes before roars rumbled through the tense
air and swelled into a tumultuous crescendo as the gun
banged a period onto the final line of the Washington
Oregon make-believe finish. Jabbering fans had filed
through smoke-filled corridors into the brisk night, but in
the Igloo s basement there was drama being enacted.
"W ebfoot warriors grinned as hot water poured from the
showers and trickled off fatigued bodies. In their quarters
a pack of whipped Huskies curled up and licked their wounds.
“Lucky Hank!" the “Needle” nodded. A toothpaste
ad smile bloomed on his rosy face while he reclined on a
table in the Oregon dressing room.
Over in the Washington quarter they had another
“word” for it, a disgruntled snort that pumped oomph
into a phrase that sounded nothing like ‘ ‘ Lucky! ’ ’
Husky Coach Hec Edmundson, apparently struggling against
a siege of melancholia, dragged on an ash-tipped cigarette,
as lie paced along the cold concrete floor in the visitors’ retreat.
Over in a corner Iloopmen Bob Voelker and Bob Lindli stole
glances at their sombre Chief with eyes that all hut shouted,
Townsend Misses Miracle Finish
Vic Townsend, plopped on a bench in the Webfoot repair
room, toyed with the scorebook and mused apologetically, “I
must have played kin da’ dirty . . . gosh!”
With but five minutes remaining in the game, the wiry
Webfoot forward had fouled himself out of the fray (only
No. 2 in his college basketball heydey). ..The payoff, Town
send was excitedly pulling on civilian togs downstairs when
teammate Hank “The Needle” threaded the hoop with his
timely stitch to tack a movie finis onto that fairy-story
Incidentally, Townsend left six pounds of perspiration scat
tered about (lie Igloo floor Tuesday night after jigging all over
the boards for 3.3 minutes.
How They Stack Up
Summarizing gruesome details of 1 he Huskies’ Oregon in
vasion—Victories squirmed out of their snapping jaws like
greased pigs . . . all four of ’em . . . and Hec Edmundson’s
boys pooped into third position, behind OSC. Washington
State’s Cougars lounged on top of the heap with six wins aud
a pair of dunkings.
Buddies on the bottom are Oregon and Idaho, the Ducks with
three triumphs and six muffs, the Vandals with two victories
and four dings. Via (lie percentage route, both spot .333 ratings.
Vic Townsend clamped a half-nelson on the northern
division scoring leadership as the Oregon Washington series
became history, with Porky Andrews battling WSC’s Paul
Lindeman for a grab somewhere about the midsection.
Townsend has 99 digits for nine games, Andrews 76 for
the same, and Lindeman 75 for only eight tussles.
The “Big Bunvan” will probably coast past Andrews unless
a broken leg lies him to the bench when the Cougars play their
ninth game, but that lie'll roll abreast of Townsend is some
thing beyond our ken just yet.
Hoyman Grooms Mermen
Swimming Coach Mike lloyman is bearing the loss of Stu
Eandall, his prize sprint merman, philosophically. Instead of
moping while his proteges splash around in the tank, the Duck
Mentor is shimmying up Cub Callis and Jim Marnie in hopes
they’ll be able to piece together some of the eggs that tumbled
out of the sprint sack when Randall was waved the checkered
flag on a technicality in the three-year varsity competition regula
Hoyman's swimmers are kicking and paddling into con
dition for a dual with Oregon State in one of the rings of

A gang of spirited Webfoot
wrestlers went back to work
this week in preparation for an
invasion by the Oregon State
beavers, this coining weekend.
This will be a return match with
the Beavers and will find the
Webfoots trying for their first
win from the Beaverville boys.
Although there was determina

Oregon Swim Hopes
Talk about hard luck and you
are right down Jim Mamie’s alley.
Jim is a two-year letterman from
Hawaii on the Oregon varsity
swimming team, and for two suc
cessive years he has had trouble
at his door.
Last year Jim parked in the In
firmary for a couple of weeks get
ting over a case of smallpox, and
this year, just before the OSC
meet, he was recovering from the
measles. But overcoming these
handicaps, he has turned out to
be one of Oregon's best point get
ters in the sprints and relays.
Another boy on the swimming
team is Cub Callis who is turning
into an "iron man.” This is his first
year with the varsity and in his
first meet he placed second in the
50-yard free style, won first place
in the 100-yard free style, then
coming back to swim in the 400
yard relay which was won by the
Oregon splashers. Callis also
swims the back-stroke event, and
is developing very fast.
Gerald Huestis, a two-year let
terman, is the most versatile man
on the swimming team, does ev

Another two-year letterman is

the Northwest conference diving
championship last year. A1 placed
second in the OSC meet but is
expected to be in better form
against the Aggies in Saturday’s
meet. He is a consistent point get

Along; with n defeat at the
hands of OSC, a tidal wave of
misfortune engulfed Vaughn
Corley and his Duck boxing
squad over the weekend.
Saturday afternoon, the Web
foot sluggers were eradicated, 7-1,
by Jim Dixon’s Beaver squad. Lat
er Saturday evening, the San Jose
State match was canceled. Mon
day, two varsity mittmen ex
pressed their intention of quitting,
and yesterday Orlando J. Hollis
spiked a rumor allowing boxers
four years of varsity competition,
San Jose Cancels Meet
No reason was given for the
cancellation of the San Jose en
gagement. The Spartans will meet
Oregon State at Corvallis Febru
ary 20, and evidently the Califor
nia squad feels that two scraps in
one week is too stiff a schedule.
Gil Geitner and Merle Hans
eom have decided to hang up the
gloves, according to informed
sources. Geitner refused to fight
in an exhibition against Oregon
State, while Hanscom lost to
Don Hawkins in a three-round,
one-sided tilt. Hanscom was a
varsity stand-out during 1988-89,
having never lost a fight on his
home grounds. Geitner came up
from Oakland, California with a
big build-up and no punch and

Clash With Rooks
By LEE FLATBERG
Coach John Warren sent his Duckling hoopmen through a scrim
mage session Wednesday afternoon, showing the hoopsters what is
to be expected when they tangle with the rooks Friday night.
Bob Newland, who has been in the infirmary for the last three days,
returned to the fold, but a jinx again hit the frosh when Rog Dick
was held out of practice because of a cold.
The frosh will have to be In top form against the rooks as the state

crew. Although their record to
date does not look as good on
paper as does that of the Year

busy evening. The rooks have
won five out of seven games
played. Their two defeats were
