Hooray for spring, spinach, et al. And while we ’re waxing
jubilant, let’s donate a few mild gurgles to Washington
State. Jack Priel’s Cougars stumbled over Oregon State
twice in their opening basketball jousts, then gathered
their battered hides off the boards and retailiated with a
12-game win wave to pluck the championship berry in 1941
northern division hoop competition.
Still obsessed with the spirit of giving, here's a towel on
which backers of “wrong” teams can shower their blatant
OSC Vandals Split
Oregon State, struggling to outdo Oregon, made a
clumsy thrust at second place Tuesday night, as Idaho’s
floudering Vandals squelched the Beavers 42 to 35 in Mos
cow. However, the Corvallis bogey men shuffled around last
night and clubbed Forrest Twogood’s five 41 to 32.
Oregon Forward “Slick” Vic Townsend is shy 33 points of
erasing Wally Palmberg's “official” northern division scoring
record, and the “Slick” one totes a lemon “33” on the green
playing jersey draped over his back.
Hawaii Calls Ducks
Hawaii calls, and at least seven Webfoot cagers and
Coach Hobby Hobson will be bobbing towards the islands
comes March 28. Unless the “Tall Firs’’ bend under the
flood of Hawaiian hospitality, they should give basketball
fans way out thar’ something to stare and gulp at.
Oregon's playing is certain to arouse more than 1 lie tepid
enthusiasm wheedled out of island fans by Oregon State's in
fernal waltzing last year. Spectators will lap up that fast-brealc
stuff. Their concept of college ball is a combination of dribbling
that virtually scorches the floor, passing that throws your eyes
out of gear, and basket-popping nothing short of miraculous.
And if there’s any team on the coast that can appease their
appetites on these scores, it’s Oregon.
Unless that deadly maggot, ineligibility, worms its way
into swimming ranks again next year, Mike Hoyman should
have a terrific squad all cranked up and ready to churn
loose against northern division competition. Loss of Sprinter
Stu Randall early in the season deflated the swim unit this
year, but with frosh stars Bob Irvin and John Mead grad
uating to varsity ranks next year, things will probably
brighten up for Oregon.
Irvin’s 18.6-second 40-yard freestyle splash against Uni lli
February 26 unofficially doused the Pacific coast record by .5
of a second. His 53.4-second 100-yard freestyle swim shaved .1
of a second off the national mark.
