'Aqua-Slugs' Crawl
With 'Lugs’ Today
Swimming; Coach Mike Hoy
man will present an early-season
preview of his Webfoot splashers,
both varsity and frosh, today at
4 p.m. in an intersquad meet at
the men’s pool. It will be open to
! the student body and visitors free
of charge.
“These intersquad meets often
\ are better than regular confer
ence swims,” Hoyman commented
This will be the first chance
for Duck rooters to view this
year’s edition of aqua splashers,
which show promises of being one
of the strongest teams in the
Northern division race.
Hoyman has combined the
varsity and frosh squads into
two teams. “The Lugs,” cap
tained by Chuck Nelson and
Jack Robinson, and the “Slugs,”
led by Cub Callis and Gerry
Huestis, both hold high hopes
of winning, because it has been
decided that the losers are to
meet the wood (get hacked).
Two newcomers to the varsity
squad will make their debut to
day. Don Belding will help Gerry
Huestis uphold the honor of the
“Slugs” against “Lug” Ralph
Huestis in the 200-yard breast
stroke event. Dick Ashrow, an
other “Slug” is slated to swim in
the 150-yard back stroke and the
440-yard relay.
Frosh taking part in the
- meet are Bob Hanke, Tom Haz
zard, Gene Davis, A1 Peterson,
^nd A1 Basmaiian. Their tun
out will be limited because of
illness among several mem
There will be plenty of action
in every race, but there are two
or three that will be of special
interest. Another chapter in the
back stroke duel between
Chuck Nelson and Cub Callis
will be written as these two
speedsters tangle in the 150
yard event.
Probably the hottest races will
develop between Jack Robinson
and Dick Smith in the 220-yard
and 440-yard free style tilts.
Smith has been out of competi
tion for a year while serving with
Uncle Sam, but is working back
into condition again. Robinson,
who is only a sophomore, has
been burning up the lanes so far
this year, and shows promise of
being one of the best distance
men in the conference.
Dr. Staples Takes
Geological Holiday
Dr. Lloyd W. Staples, assistant
professor of geology, attended
the opening of Charleton’s com
mercial laboratory in Portland
recently. The only commercial
spectroscope in use in Oregon
was displayed, and the effects of
impurities in diamond's in pro
ducing fluorescence shown, ac
cording to Dr. Staples.
The remainder of the vacation
Dr. Staples spent near Burns,
making a geological study of an
area reported to yield tin, in an
attempt to find out whether or
not the region has commercial
possibilities. Results of his study
will be determined in the labora
tory here. .
Ducks Topple Rubes
In Practice Contest
New Players
Star in High
Scoring Tilt
Oregon’s varsity, playing a
fast brand rf ball, outlasted the
Rubensteins last night in an
other of their practice scrim
mages at the Igloo. No official
score was tabulated.
Starting out in fine style, the
Rubes ran up an early lead be
fore the Ducks got roling. Once
started Oregon soon had things
swinging their way and by
half time claimed a slight mar
Oregon Extends Lead
While the Rubes experimented
with new players, the Ducks
speeded up the play, and Howard
Hobson's green and yellow-clad
quintet stretched this lead to a
sizeable degree. Things ended
with the Rubes closing the gap,
thanks to the heavy firing of
Earl- Sandness and Ted Sarpola,
It was a case of laxitv in de
fense by both teams, rather than
exceptional scoring prowess that
was responsible for the heavy
bombardment of the hoop.
All Ducks turned in a fairly
good account of themselves
though at times the ball handling
was rough. Two newcomers, Will
son Maynard and John Erickson,
came through with promising
performances. Maynard was very
effective with two-handed howit
zers, while Erickson displayed a
deadly lefthanded shot.
The Rubes’ “Big Four” of
Jack Butterworth, Laddie Gale,
Sandness, and Sarpola, once
more monopolized the scoring.
Gale’s fake-and-slioot tactics
were particularly lethal, while
Sandness produced some stellar
overhead shots.
Veterans Start
Starting for the Ducks were
Bob Wren and Rolph Fuhrman,
forwards; Lloyd Jackson, center;
“Porky” Andrews and Paul Jack
son, guards. Reserves entering
the contest for Oregon were: Don
Kirsch, Bob Newland, Archie
Marshik, Cliff Anet, Maynard,
and Erickson.
Colds kept Warren Taylor and
Warren Christiansen on the
bench. Both should be back in
uniform within the next few days.

Kappa Sigs, Chi Psis
Although Homecoming signs,
evidently now in the making, took
their quota of athletes from their
respective houses, three eager
volleyball teams showed up for
Wednesday’s contests in the PE
Kappa Sigma after winning one
tilt, 15 to 9, lost the second to
the Chi Psi sextet by a score of
15 to 8 and then fought their way
to the top to take the final bout,
15 to 7, thereby taking the se
ries. High point honors go to Cor
bett and Montage, Kappa Sigs.
Chi Psi Dumps Sigma Nu
A mighty Chi Psi outfit, al
though they were stopped cold
by a mightier Sigma Nu, 15 to 8,
in their second tilt, took the two
remaniing bouts, 15 to 6 and 15
to 12, respectively, to- capture
win honors in their name. Much
of their good luck can be attrib
uted to the activity of Morry
Ambrose and A1 Putnam.
Gamma Hall Shines
After sporting bad luck in nu
merous contests previously, Gam
ma hall took a turn for the bet
ter yesterday when they admin
istered a sound 15 to 3—18 to 15
drubbing to Kirkwood co-op. Both
teams used a style of play calcu
lated to outplay their opponents
by forcing them to return serves
into the net. Honors, if any, go
to Gamma hall’s Pattison and
Three Defaults
The other three games sched
uled for yesterday were all de
faulted. In the “A” league the
Sig Eps defaulted to DU and
Sherry Ross lost by default to
Kirkwood. In the “B” league
Theta Chi won by default over
the Sig Eps.

Do Your
On Gridiron
It took a writ of habeas corpus
to get most of the law school sen
ior class out to the football field
last Friday afternoon but once
they got started the freshman
class couldn’t hold them back in
spite of their appeals to the
judges and claims of nolo con
tendere. The seniors won, 6 to 0,
which coupled with their victory
over the second-year class the
week before, gave them the law
school pennant.
The seniors depended on power
drives through center for their
yardage with Fullback Irving
Mann carrying the ball. The only
threat made by the freshmen was
a passing attack by Carl Little,
halfback. Veteran Phil Lowry of
the senior squad was on the
bench due to the drubbing he took
in the game the week before. The
young lawyers now plan to chal
