Scoring Field
^Oregon roared into its 1942
Northern division basketball cam
paign full of sound and fury, but
Washington State obstinately re
fused to be ruffled. Oregon ap
peared disastrously raw in spots
and experienced niggardly suc
cess in drawing a bead on the
basket, but Washington State
simply wasn’t to be cajoled into
sympathy. So the Cougars
romped on to nimbly out-man
euver and out-shoot the Web
foots, 61 to 45, as the opening
burst of Northern division ac
tivity swept over the maples of
Oregon’s Igloo last night,
j/ack Friel’s invading Cougars
reflected shades of the outfit
which eventually stumbled before
Wisconsin in the finals of the
National Intercollegiate basket
ball championship, last year, and
which took Oregon four straight
en route.
Oregon’s darting guard and
captain, George “Porky” An
drews, salvaged a bit of salve
with which the W'ebfoots can
assuage their wounds ... he led
the scoring with 17 points. One
squeaky point behind, however,
was Washington State’s gangly
r center, Gail Bishop.
Arrears of the two leaders were
a brace of disgustingly good Cou

While students stepped precariously under hanging branches and
lights went out over the campus here is what was actually happening
in the skies over their heads and the ground under their feet. It seems
that bad news in the form of a low pressure area hit the campus
which was already suffering from a high pressure affliction.

'Thaw’ Really Freeze,
Says Oregon Professor
“There’s nothing- thaw about it—it’s a freeze,’’ J. C. Stovall,
geography instructor, declared emphatically concerning the
strange dish of weather nature dished out to Eugeneans Tues
day night and Wednesday. He explained that it took a certain
peculiar set of atmospheric and ground conditions—and the co
operation of a bit of ram, to re
sult in the condition which we
call a “silver thaw."
“As far as I know the term
‘silver thaw' is used only in the
northwestern United States,"
Stovall stated. “In California they
call it a sleet storm and in most
places, including the textbooks,
it is referred to as a glaze or ice

and low temperatures which ac

of last week. All ground objectu
lost a great deal of heat due to
radiation and even the groun>

pressure area moved eastward
and was partially replaced by a
warmer low pressure area mov
