The London venture—which will
prevent another Louis fight at
Madison Square Garden in March
I —was announced just before Louis
hammered through four fast rounds
with three sparmates before more
than 300 spectators.
When asked if the cancellation

York indicated that he might re
tire, the champion grinned and re

although Wiley at times snatched
rebounds like a world-beater.
The Ducks had little chance to
open up with a running game, as
the carefully-instructed Pilots
played a deliberate brand of ball.
The Oregon five of Williamson,
Bob Lavey, Wiley, Bartelt, and
Kenny Seeborg showed the most
tire of the units used by Warren.
But speed was of little value where
points were concerned.
Wiley was runnerup for Oregon
with 11 points and Bartelt scored
8. Winters of Portland scored 9
and Leo Grosjaques, a sec-shot spe
cialist, canned 8.
Oregon has one more home ap
pearance this term. The Ducks will
entertain Willamette University at
Mac court December 10.

large part of the campi was up on
the slopes of Mt. Hood over the
holidays. Seen there on the slats
were George Bell, Bob Oas and
Nancy Fitzhugli. Bell wasn’t quite
as at home on the snow as on the
gridiron but was getting the knack
of the sport.
According to CARL GREVE,
Jeweler in Portland, quite a few
students dropped into his fancy
store over the holidays. You can’t

SPORTS: The hoop team rolled
into high gear on its first trip and
the boys are shaping up. However,
nicknames have been added to sev
eral of the hoopsters. Bob Lavey
is now known as “Scrapbook” La

picked up the monicker “Teacups.”
There’s a story about Bom Don, but
we’ll save it for another issue.
