    Webfoot Five Opens Palouse
Swing Against Idaho Tonight
Webfoot Coach Howard Hobson and his traveling crew of
12 cagemen left Eugene by bus Monday afternoon for their
annual invasion of the Palouse country and games with Idaho
jand Washington State this week. ________
Listed on the traveling team
were Forwards Ed Dick, Bob
Wren, George Bray, Jiin Bartelt,
and Ken Hays; Center Koger Wi
ley; Guards Stan Williamson, A1
l’opick, Bob Lavey, Dick Wil
kins, Roy Seeborg, and Keedy
Berg; Trainer Tom Hughes, and
Manager Russ Bagan.
Favored Over Vandals
The Ducks will be favored in their
two games with cellar-dwelling Ida
ho Vandals tonight and Wednesday.
The defending northern division
champs have failed to register a
victory in conference play this sea
son, and if the Hobsonmen can take
a double win from the Vandals, they
will start the weekend series
against Washington State with
three wins and three losses in con
ference play.
The giant killing Cougars are sure
to give Oregon a stiff test, however.
Washington was dropped from the
thinning roster of undefeated teams
in the nation as a result of Wash
ington State’s two-game sweep last
weekend, and Jack Friel’s crew
handed Oregon its first defeat of
the season in McArthur court two
weeks earlier.
Oregon has a good chance of com
pleting the week with a .500 aver
age with four wins and the same
number of defeats if they sweep
Idaho and split with WSC.
If the dreaded Inland Empire
trip is really successful, they will
be back in the running with the
win-loss column reading five and
Hobson is expected to use the
usual starting five consisting of
Hays and Dick at forwards, Wiley
at center, and Williamson and Pop
ick at the guard posts.
Division Meet Changed

ic Coast conference track meet at

fornia crew races here on Lake
Washington May 24, he said.

Frosh Grab
11th Straight
The Oregon Frosh, falling hack
into their old habit of winning ball
games in the final period, waited
until the last 20 seconds before
whistling down a hot Grants Pass
team 38-37 on the Cavemen’s floor
last Saturday night.
Ed Gudgel, rock-ribbed guard,
supplied the winning punch when
he let fly with his favorite heave,
a one-hander from the side of the
kfey, which plunked through for
the winning margin.
Taking the ball out of bounds, the
Cavemen surged up floor but lost
the ball out of bounds before getting
another shot off, and the gun halt
ed any further scoring.
Orr Leads Losers
Grants Pass was figured as any
thing but that dangerous to the
Duckling’s unbeaten record which
has now reached 11 straight, but,
paced by Jackie Orr, were canning
shots from all corners of the court.
Ted Schopf’s Ducklings jumped
into an early lead and held a com
fortable 24-16 bulge at intermission.
It wasn’t until the last half-minute
that Grants Pass held an edge, that
one being 37-36, thanks to a prayer
toss from the dead-center-line by
Orr, who notched 18 for his eve
ning’s total.
Mockford, Downey Score
Rod Downey and Roger Mock
ford distributed the scoring punch
for the Little Ducks as both racked
up 10 counters.
The win sets the stage for next
Friday’s tilt with the Oregon State
Rooks, who also boast an unbeaten
string. Saturday the Schopfmen

“I don’t think that we have met
our toughest team yet. Washing

the Huskies and OSC. We still have
a chance, but it is pretty slim now,"

There has been a lot of comment
about the number of fouls called
in the recent Oregon-Oregon
(State series and the roughness of
the first game. Ken thinks the
Washington State contests were
rougher, but the referees just
didn't call them as close.
When asked about the roughness
of the game at Corvallis Ken just
said, "I thought the game was mild."
Ducks Faster
OSC has been boasting of the
speed of its team, but Ken still
thinks the Ducks are faster in get

the Beavers did look fast Friday
night. He remarked that the Bea

while the Ducks poured on the

Ken has played ball three years
for Oregon. In his first two years
he held down the center position
but was switched to forward this
season. As to the positions, he pre

he has shown well in his new for
ward position.
Gets Ribbing
Work in fruit canneries kept him
busy last summer and hunting and
fishing are among his hobbies. Ac
cording to the team, however, he is
just a tall wolf. In his quiet manner,
Ken denied this. Rog Wiley ribbed
Hays and said he wasn't revealing
the truth. All his other teammates
agreed. Ken did admit that he liked
extracurricular activities, but would
say no more.
Statistics from Athletic Pub
licity Director Art Litcliman’s
brochure reveal that Hays is 22
years old, weighs 200 pounds and
lives at Waitsburg, Washington.
His first season as a letter-win
