(Continued from page one)
Neither outfit can boast an
undefeated pre-season record,
though the Cougars can point
to a superior offensive average
than that which the Ducks
have chalked up in early play.
Coach Jack Friei’s quintet hit
the hemp for well over 45
points per contest, while the
Duck average falls considerably
less, 36 points per game.
Oregon Supreme Defensively
Defensively, Oregon seems to
have a meager advantage, having
a 33 point average garnered by
opponents, while the Cougars de
fense has yielded 35 points.
Source of Washington State’s
scoring punch rests in three aces,
any of which might break out
with a “hot” streak. Leading
point-provider is Captain Kirk
Gebert, only regular holdover
from last year’s starting lineup.
Although just 5 feet 9 inches tall,
the lithe Longview senior has con
sistently been a “thorn” in his
opponents’ side, both defensively
and offensively.
Considered by Coach Friel
himself as a very potential
scoring threat and one who has
paced many a cougar victory
in pre-conference encounters is
Marvin Gilberg, 6 foot 2 inch
forward. The third member of
this offensive trio is Center
Gail Bishop, 6 foot 3 inch soph
omore pivotman.
Remainder of the Cougar start
ing five will probably be Owen
Hunt, a six-foot junior from
Highline, Wash., at guard, and
A1 Akin, a sophomore forward
from Spokane.
Sheridan on Squad
Bob Sheridan, ex-Oregon frosh
player and purgee victim of the
Atherton scourge, will be includ
ed in the 11-man traveling squad
which reached Eugene via twTo
new station wagons. A sopho

No definite lineup has been
issued front the Duck camp, but
in all probability will be the
same which has opened the last
few warm-up contests. This
unit, which was given a severe
test on the eastern exposition,
has drilled doggedly this week,
despite electrical difficulties
which rendered the Igloo in

Sophomore Bob Wrren, who has

Duck scorer on the lengthy road
trip with 74 points, will undoubt

who gathered in 49 points in the
eleven practice games, will prob

The “Paul Bunyan” of the out
fit. tall Lloyd Jackson, has edged
out two-year veteran, Archie
Marshik, and will open at cen
ter. Guard positions are being
capably plugged by Captain
“Porky” Andrews, who has made
57 points so far, and dynamic
Paul Jackson, who is second high
scorer with 64.
Officials for the series will be

Bob Irvin’s Return
Bolsters Splashers
Everyone is familiar with the iatest slogan: “There has been some
thing new added,” or words to that effeet. There has been something
new added to the Oregon swimming team, and it is one of the most
potent charges that Coach Mike Hoyman could wish for.
After being out most of last
tie All-American” Bob Irvin, ace
term with an infected foot, “Lit
Duck sprinter, has returned to
the water for keeps.
All-Star Frosh
In recognition o: his perform
ances last year as a freshman,
Irvin was chosen as one of the
outstanding first-year swimming
men in he country and was placed
on the National Intercollegiate
Swimming association’s national
freshman swimming team.
It was in the Frosh-Univer
sity Hi meet early last spring
that he unofficially broke two
Pacific Coast conference rec
ords. In the 40-yard sprints he
dashed for the time of 18.6 sec
onds, five-tenths of a second
faster than the coast mark. In
the 100-yard event he beat the
coast mark with the time of
53.4 seconds.
There is more than an even
chance that the Ducks will have
another speedy sprinter if husky
Chuck Weitzel gets by Mr. Ath
erton and his rulings.
The diving department has
been pulled from the cellar with
the return of “Ox” Wilson, a re
covered pneumonia victim, and
Tom Corbett, a newcomer to the
Duck ranks. For a while it looked
as if the diving boards might
have to come down for lack of
aerial men, but with the appear
ance of these two hopefuls, the
outlook has brightened.
The first meet is scheduled for^
January 17, an evening contest
with the Portland Swimming club
which was formerly the famed
Aero club.
