DUCK TRACKS By DON FAIR ■ Assistant Sports Editor Judging from the Oregon basketball team's performance against Portland Tuesday night, the \\ ebfoots are going to have to play about three times better ball to keep in the North .ern division race this season. The Duck cagers are fortu- i nate. however, in that they j have a good preseason sched- ; ule. More than likely they will j finish on the short end of the score in some of the precon ference games against such team s as Kansas, Niagara, Long Island, and Stanford. But in the words of Coach John Warren, “I’m not so wor ried about how many games my team drops in the opening JACK NICIIOLS contests. I want them to he in shape tor tnat league opener January 9 against Washington." As was shown last year by the Webfoot cagers, a good preseason record doesn't mean a thing ‘if you can't win in the Northern division. Husky Series May Decide Race Those two games with the Huskies, January 9 and 10. could well decide the league race. Both the Washington and Oregon quintets have the potential stuff to win the conference title, and the Ducks will have the edge in these two games by playing on their home court. Until then Warren has his hands full trying to find a fifth man at forward to work with Jim Bartelt, Roger Wiley\ Stan Wiliamsoit, and Reedy Berg. Bob Don looked like the man after the British Columbia series, but failed to live up to expectations against Fee’s and Portland. Archie Gacek played well against the Portland all-star team, but couldn’t consistently find the basket against the Pilots. Marv Rasmussen, Lynn Hamilton, and Kenny Seeborg seem ,to be the next applicants for the job. .Lj# McLarney Has Potential Pov/erhouse Up at Seattle, the Huskies under new Coach Art McLarney, seem to have a powerhouse. In its lone game this year. Wash ington dumped Western Washington College of Education 69 32, and tonight the Seattlites meet Pacific Lutheran college. McLarney has an all-lettermen first string back, but four are seniors. The lone sophomore on the squad is Sammy White, a forward. Last year against the Webfoots at the Ig loo, White was hitting hook shots from all over the court and has undoubtedly improved for this season. At the other forward for Washington is Bill Vandenburgh, a dangerous but sometimes inconsistent performer. The center slot is well taken care fo by 6 foot 6 inch Jack Nichols. Nichols is probably the most feared pivot man in the,division because of his backboard and point-getting ability. Jorgenson, Taylor Good Guards The Huskies have a pair of the best guards in the business in Bobby Jorgenson and Bill Taylor. Jorgenson is a one-hand ■set-shot stylist, while Taylor, another high scorer, is the play maker of the Washington team. Even the second-string Huskie quintet is an all-veteran out fit with Les Eathorne and Norm Carnovale, forwards; Don Roberts, center; and Bob Bird and Andy Opacich, guards. Any one of these men could, at any time, break into the starting lineup. Orangemen Head East Slats Gill's Oregon State basketball team left by streamliner from Portland Wednesday night on their Eastern swing. The Beavers, with four hard-fought wins under their belt, play Canisuis in Buffalo Saturday night. On Tuesday, the Aggies will play the City College ot New York in Madison Square Garden. After the CCNY game, Oregon State will come directly to Corvallis to finish out their preseason slate. Cliff Crandall, junior All-coast performer is leading the Beavers in total scor ing this season with 48 points for a 12 point average per game. Until last night’s game with Portland. Wiley was leading the Oregon scorers with 53 points, while Williamson, with 48. was close second. In the latest issue of Sport magazine, Wil liamson was the only West Coast eager to be picked by writer George Trevor on a mythical All-American 15-man basketball team for the coming season. Coast Dream Team Names Five Webfoots on Squad Los Angeles, Dec. 4. Five unani mous selections featured the 1947 All-Pacific Coast Conference foot ball team chosen by the conference of coaches and announced yester day*by Commissioner Vic Schmidt. Paul Cleary, John Ferraro and Don Doll of U.S.C., Norm Van Brocklin of Oregon and John Graves of California received the votes of every league coach whose team played against them. Tom Fears, U.C.L.A. end, and Ilod Franz, California guard, lacked one vote of being 100 per cent choices. Ecklund, Leicht Named Completing the first string on this coaches’ dream team are a pair of U.C.L.A. linemen, Mike Dimitro and Bill Chambers; Ore gon’s 60 minute center, Brad Eck lund; and the Ducks’ veteran half back, Jake Leicht. A remarkable concentration of strength this year is shown by the fact that 20 of the top 22 men chosen by the coaches were taken from S.C., California, Ore gon and U.C.L.A., the first four teams in the conference stand ings. Were these mythical teams to be | assembled on one playing field the frontlines would average 216 and 213 pounds per man, respec tively. The backfields would in clude two fine T-quarterbacks and passers. Van Brocklin and George Murphy of S.C.; a tripple-threat' tailback in Idaho's Bill Williams; a pair of 200-pound fullbacks, Graves and Bruin Jerry Shipkey and three fast all-purpose ball car riers, Leicht, Doll and Cal Rossi of U.C.L.A. The 22 men honored by the con- j ference coaches are as follows: First Team Wt. Position pau.

The lights on the front porch blink on and off as the housemoth er comes out and gives the nightly “warning." The lights go off (longer than usual). There’s a kiss, then a vig orous slap. Lights go on again. Ev eryone remains silent, but the Phi Psi has a black eye. The house mother thinks: “What a good girl she is, such a fine girl.” The girl thinks: “Isn’t it odd that the Aggie tried to kiss the house mother and not me?” The Aggie thinks: “That Delt is a smart one—he steals a kiss and I get hit.” The Delt thinks: “I’m a clever fellow. I kiss the back of my hand, hit the Aggie, and get away with it.” (Above is fiction, but it might work at that. But it isn’t fiction that you get good food at REN ELLS. Fast service and friendly hospitality are not just fairy-book myths.) i SPORTS: We neglected to men tion that one other member of the hoop squad has picked up a nick name. ’Tis Reedy “Boxlunch” Berg from now out, according to his teammates. In case you are wondering, Dick Wilkins won’t be eligible for bas ketball until next term. That means he won’t go on the trip east this year. First one he has missed in some time. CAMPUS: This must be deadline week. Campaigns, projects, and thesis work top the docket. Editor Bob Frazier is holed up in his of fice getting his thesis out. A big warning is on the door. Dick Shelton just got back on the campus from a lengthy stay in Portland where he got his thesis knocked out. Blisters on his hand after writing in long-hand some 10,000 words. FILMS : Doc Blanchard and Glenn Davis are still the stars in “Spirit of West Point” showing at the MAYFLOWER theater. Don’t miss it if you like football. ...IDEAS: We have two sugges tions that might be considered by someone: 1. The campus can still use some attractive trash cans. There just aren’t enough of them. Too often we throw trash around because there is no proper place to throw it. Maybe someone can alleviate this condition. 2. Christmas season is drawing nigh. Maybe someone, organization or such could set up a PA system and have some Christmas carols float over the quad once in a while. There’s nothing that makes Christ mas seem like the season of good cheer than the much-loved carols. Since this is the next to the last issue of the Emerald for the term Christmas Greetings to you from CARL GREVE, Jeweler, in Port land. Carl will personally help you make someone especially happy for Christmas if you are looking for gifts in Portland. And a “MERRY CHRISTMAS’’ from us to you. —Pd. Adv.
