Spectators at the Oregoa-Idaho basketball game tonight
will be treated to a between-the-halves exhibition which in
itself promises to be worth the admission price. At approx
imately 9 p. m., immediately after the Oregon quintet leaves
the floor with a half-time lead of about five points, Les
Steers will take over the show and demonstrate the form
that has carried him to a national championship in the high
Much publicity has been written about Les since lie entered
the University last fall but this is the first opportunity the pub
lic has had to see him perform. Steers hasn't done any indoor
work as yet this year, in fact only yesterday he bought a pair
of tennis shoes so he could jump tonight. Anse Cornell lias
scouted around and obtained three or four special mats to pile
one on top of another so that the all-American track athlete will
have a soft place to land.
Webfoots Will Win Again
Tonight’s hoop contest between the powerful Vandals from
Moscow, Idaho, and the Webfoots should be a thriller in every
sense of the word. Perhaps not as spine-tingling as the two
previous games in which Washington and Oregon State were the
victims of Ilandy Hank Anderson’s spectacular last minute
basket-bombing, but the crowd will get their fill of fast basket
ball and if this column doesn’t go wrong in its predictions,
(we’re batting 1.000 in Oregon game prognostications to date)
the Webfoots will wind up safely on the long end of the score.
Coach Hobby Hobson is still on the fence as to who will
comprise his starting five. Two new faces will break into
the opening lineun tonight if the quintet which has been
practicing all week together is called upon to halt the fast
Don Kirsch and Archie Marshik, guard and center respec
tively, have been receiving much attention the past few days as
a result of their fine showing against the Oregon State Reavers
last Saturday night, and unless Hobby lias changed his mind
since the last practice session, both boys will be listed in the
starting positions. “Porky” Andrews, Vic Townsend, and Bill'
Borcher will round out the team.
Dallas Guns for Record
Swimming enthusiasts had better remember that today the
Duck paddlers meet the Vandals at the men’s pool, if they de
sire a last look at Oregon’s great quartet of senior athletes.
This is the final home appearance of Mike Hoyman’s crew and
the meet promises to develop into a four-man exhibition, with
Jack Dallas, Slierm Wetmore, A1 Sandncr, and Jim Mamie
providing the thrills.
Wetmore and Dallas are the best known of the Oregon
mermen. The former is the possessor of the Pacific coast
conference record in the 100 and 150 yard backstroke events
while the latter holds the 100 and 200 yard coast breast
stroke marks. All records are for 20 yard pools.
Feature of tlie meet will be Dallas’s attempt to better the
national intercollegiate oUO yard individual medley record of
Warren Issues a Challenge
Trying to draw a pre-game prediction out of “Honest John”
Warren, whose frosli quintet meets Oregon State at Corvallis
tonight, was like pulling teeth, but when the subject of handball
was brought up, Warren was all talk. It. scorns that he and
Mike Mikulak have been playing all comers in doubles competi
tion for the past five or six years, and up to a week or so ago
had never been defeated.
Then they ran into Lon Isberg and Chet Ilaliski, Oregon grid
stars of the past season, and before they could pull themselves
together had lost three straight games.
Mikulak and Warren have been teaching the handball
classes for several years and it has always been a standing
rule that if you are good enough to whip the teacher, you
deserve an ‘A’ in the course. Needless to say ‘A’s’ have
been quite scarce.
“We challenge any double combination you can find to a
championship match,” roared Warren . . . but he said nothing
concerning the liook-Frosh game.

Make Final Home Appearance Against
University of Idaho Swimming Team
By DOC HENRY
Jack Dallas and Sherm Wetmore, co-captains of the Univer
sity of Oregon varsity swimming team, will make their final
appearance in the Oregon pool under the Webfoot colors in the
varsity swim meet with the Idaho Vandals Friday afternoon.
Dallas and Wetmore have never been defeated in Pacific coast
competition in their specialties, breaststroke and backstroke.
In their sophomore year they set conference records which they
have since bettered. Dallas holds the conference record in the
100- and 200-yard breaststroke and Wetmore holds the record
in the 100- and 150-yard backstroke.
In the first event of the Idaho program, Jack Dallas will at
tempt to break the National Intercollegiate 300-vard individual
medley record, now held by a form-1
er Oregon swimmer. The record
for this final event is 3:44.6 which
was set by Jim Reed in 1936, swim

for the event, swam the medley in

Matmen Face Idaho

The head intern of the University of Oregon wrestling squad,
Lloyd Koehier, today applied his last bottle of iodine, spread ad
hesive tape around generously, loaned out a pair of eritehes, and
declared that his patched and bunged up group of Oregon wrest
lers was ready to take on the Idaho Vandals. Matches start at
2:30 p.m. in the Igloo.
As the Oregon squad now stands they have just four men who will
be ready to wrestle who will be eligible. They are: 128, Allister Still;
155, Stan Watt; 165, Don Holst; 175, Hal Kaschko. This means that
the Webfoots will give away 20 points to the visiting muscle men be
fore they ever match holds.
The other wrestlers who would otherwise fill out these vacancies
are off the squad for the remainder of the year—with the ex
ception of the 1.86-pound weight. Joe Wong, 121 pounder, decided
to give up the wrestling game at Oregon. Henri D'Elba bowed
out to his grades. Masao Hayasi, 145-pounder, had to give up
the ship when a weak heart, showed up in his doctor’s examina
tion. Floyd Rhea, who, in his first match of the year defeated
the OSC heavyweight, Yirg Cavagnaro, injured his knee. Rhea
hurt his leg in the second meet with Oregon State.
Koehler will probably fill in the vacancies on the card with some of

Homer Flunked Out!
NO wonder ... he never had time to do his
lessons. His domestic duties kept him too busy!
Homer’s chief trouble was buttons . . . unfaithful
little perforated disks that kept coming off his shirts
(which weren’t Arrows). While other guys were
out dating on weekends, you could always find
Homer nimbly thimbling a needle.
Why didn’t someone tell him
about Arrow Shirts with anchored
buttons? They never come off!
They’re as permanent as the fine
style and fit of all Arrow shirts.
Arrow whites are all-time favor
ites. As all Arrows they have the
Muoga tailored fit and the one and only Arrow
collar in a variety of styles to suit your type. Stock
