Next Friday and Saturday on the McArthur Court maple will
be one of the better series of the year in Eugene. Whether the
Ducks win or lose, it will probably be worth the effort to drag
yourself up to see Clair Bee's boys from LIU.
This is one of the older intersectional series in the country.
It began when Howard Hobson took some of his pre-war quints
back to Madison Square Garden on barnstorming tours. The
two teams clashed more than once, and their games were always
This will be the first year that Long Island has come to the
Pacific Coast, and one of the schools they wanted to meet were
the Webfoots they had known of old. That’s why Clair Bee is
bringing his boys to the Igloo.
Bee Is a Living Legend
Bee is one of those living; legends. Almost everyone in sports
knows his name and can recount some of his many feats. He has
always done wonders with a small amount of material. His well
coached teams were a land mark for invaders from the Pacific
slopes, many of which he played.
Basketball is the big sport at LIU, a school that hovers
around the 4,000 mark in enrollment. Last year the Blackbirds
won 18 out of 22 games, and have gotten off to a pretty good
start this seaosn.
Incidently, though they emphasize basketball, they have no
home court for games. Most of their home games they play in
the Brooklyn College of Pharmacy Gymnasium or in Madison
The Webfoots will have to be in top form to grab off a win
against the invaders, at least according to the form charts. It
will be interesting to watch LIU in action and to compare their
offense with those now being used on the Coast.
Series Unly Une of several Kjooa Unes
This series with Long Island is just one of several good ones
Eugene has seen this year. Though many students missed them,
the games against California and Wyoming during Christmas
vacation were good and exciting.
And the tradition will be carried on against both the Black
birds and San Francisco University, the latter appearing here
next month. Mac Court will have seen a lot of basketball when
this season is finished.
Bruins Grab Off a Top-Flight Coach
UCLA might turn out to be a potent dark horse in the 1949
race for the Rose Bowl, depending upon how well their new
coach, “Red” Sanders, really is. Based on his background at
Vanderbilt, Sanders looks like a very good choice.
Sanders tutored the Commodores from 1940 until this last
season, excluding a three year stretch in the Navy. He started
poorly in *40, but came out with a potent team the following year
that was the surprise of the Southeastern Conference. He had
another good team in 1942, then went into the service.
In 1946, following his sojurn in the Navy, the Vanderbilt
graduate of 1927 again caught the SEC off-guard with another
top-notch eleven. He was awarded the SEC Coach of the year
in 1941 and was second for that honor in 1946. In 1947 and 194S,
the Commodores were not spectacular, but they were always
getting in somebody’s hair. Sanders will make the Bruins tough.
Ducks Have Best Home Schedule
After the Washington trip this weekend, Oregon will be at
home for the rest of the Northern Division schedule, except for
two trips to Corvallis. That’s a pretty good position to be in,
since most of the other teams in the conference will be travelling
a good share of that time.
For instance, Washington will have to make three more trips,
two to the Willamette Valley and one to Idaho. Though they
don’t make a four-games-in-five-nights invasion, they will still
get pretty tired of traveling.They have four more games at home
following the Oregon series there, with six on the road.
Oregon State, the co-favorite with Washington when the sea
son began, has six at home and six away. Idaho has six more
games in Moscow and four traveling, and Washington State will
have seven of their remaining eleven contests away from Pull
Oregon, with six left in Mac Court and only two away, (and
both of those at Corvallis) is sitting in a good spot. If the Ducks
do well against the Huskies, they could do well in the pennant
race right up to the closing games. Their only difficulty is that
after this series they will be halfway done with Northern Divi
sion play. That could be a disadvantage.

stroke entries were not certain, but
looked like Earl Walter, with Stan
Hargraves as running mate. An
other thriller, without question,
will be the 200-yard breaststroke,
where Oregon’s Rod Harman and
Art Bayly will fight it out against
A1 Van Etten, the Beaver’s top
The 440-yard free-style will see
Oregon’s Bob Hiatt and either War
ren Braucher or Stan Hargraves
go at it with Tom Boardman and
Bill Lofts for the Aggies. Winding
up the afternoon will be the pre
viously mentioned 400-yard relay.

Smooth play marked the intramural courts in yesterday’s
games, as another six tilts went under the gate and all teams
showed mid-season improvement.
Pi Kappa Phi fell to Phi Kappa Sigma, Minturn walloped

quarter score. Little Joe Tom was
the sensation of the afternoon with
his performance, dribbling through
the opposition, sending bullet pass

and hitting the hemp from all ang
