For Meets With
Oregon’s Varsity Swimmers are
in for a hot weekend when they face
tooth Idaho and Washington on suc
cessive days this weekend in the
Men’s Pool. Both meets are sched
uled to start at 2:30 P.M.
In addition to the fine perform
ances which are guaranteed by the
competing swimmers! from each
college represented some of the
outstanding ineligible swimmers
here at Oregon have indicated that
they are ready for an assault on
the pool records in special events
to precede the official meets them
Pete Van Dijk and Joe Nishimo
to, will duel in the 220 yd Freestyle
one day and the 440 yd Freestyle
Both Van Dijk and Nishimoto
have come under the pool record in
the 440 yard event by some three
seconds and should bring this down
A most important event this week
end which will probably have much
hearing on the final outcome of the
toil) diving finals will see Washing
ton State’s Mel Olson and Dick
Vavvter pitted against Jim Stanley
of (he Wehfoots.
Stanley and Olson have both de
feated the Washington divers in
earlier meets and bid fair to reign
as favorites in the quest for diving'
Meanwhile at the Men’s Pool the
emphasis for the week so far and
for the coming two days will be on
time trials with speed primary.
All predictions point to these
meets as the greatest mass assault
on meet records in the history of
Oregon Swimming. It is predicted
that no less than five meet records
will fall in each of these meets and
probably many more before the
cease fire is given.
Leading the Ducks in their as
sault on these records will be Louis
Santos, Tom Nekota, and George
Moorhead in the sprints, Earl Wal
ter and Stan Hargraves in the
Backstroke and Individual Medley
events and Bob Hiatt in the dis
Both relay teams for the Ducks
are certain to go under the standard
against Idaho and against the Cou
gars the winning team in these cru
cial events will undoubtedly be un
der the listed mark.
Coach Borchardt urges all those
students who have an interest in
swimming to attend these meets for
outside of the ND finals these two
meets will show off the finest swim
ming in the parts ever. Both meets
will begin at 2:30 in the Men’s Pool
Friday and Saturday this weekend.

For More Cash
SEATTLE, Feb. 15 (AP)-Marv
Rickert, Boston Braves outfielder
who got a special dispensation from
Commissioner A. B. Chandler to
play in the last world series, says
he wants more money.
He reported the Braves were of
fering him $1,500 less than he was
paid by Milwaukee of the American
Association last year.
“I had a good year, both at Mil
waukee and with the Braves in the
series,” he said. “I hope this is just
a misunderstanding back there.”
The Braves, meanwhile, had no
comment other than General Man
ager John Quinn said the club con
siders salary a “matter solely be
tween the player and the club, un
less the player fails to show up for
spring practice March 1.”
Sigma Chi, Theta Chi, ATO,
Delts Enter "B" IM Playoffs
Beta Theta Pi B vs. Phi Kappa Sigma B
Nestor Hall vs. Legal Eagles B
Omega Hall vs. Phi Kappa Sigma A
With action confined to the “B"
circuit yesterday afternoon, four
more IM basketball teams cap
tured berths in the playoff sched
uled for next week.
Result of the day’s play was: Sig
ma Chi blasted l)lr 27-!); Theta Chi
trampled Chi Psi 89-18: A TO wal
loped Pi Kappa Phi 23-18; the
SJelts stopped the Phi Sigs 19-10;
the Phi Dells humbled the Tekes
27-14; and l’i Kappa Alpha downed
the T'ijis 27-21.
Sigma Chi’s defending champs
exhibited the wares that brought
them the title last year as they
ran over Delta Upsilon handily.
After a slow first quarter, the
Sigma Chi five unleased a white
hrt attack from a fast break to run
away to a comfortable 16-to-t
bulge at halftime.
From here on, the blue and gold
quintet, led by “Swede" Johnson,
floated on to enter the final round.
Johnson’s eight points wns high
for the victors, but every Sigma
Chi player marked the score col
Theta Chi's “little" red team
served notice that it intended to
throw a monkey wrench in Sigma
Chi's title minded machine next
vw ek as it flattened Chi Psi 39-13.
Moving into a quick lead which
w <s never challenged, the Hilltop
p.-rs built a 9-to-(> edge into a 19
to-8 command at halftime. They
added ten counters in each of re
maining quarters to round out the
Roger Mockford, Doug Coghill,
and Don Ruth spearheaded the Red
offense with 12, 11. and 10 points
.respectively. Glen Walker dominat
ed the losers’ scoring by sinking
12 and tie Mockford for high point I
man of the contest.
ATO annexed its spot in the play
off with a brilliant second quarter
surge that put them on the long
end of a 17-to-8 midway score over
Pi Kappa Phi.
The floor play of Ed Chrobat
was the decisive factor as the rug
ged little ballhandler set lip the
ATO attack and generalled his
team to victory. Chrobat also
copped high man honors with six.
After trailing miserably through
out the first half, a stubborn band
of Phi Sigs came to life in the third
stanza with a six point rally to
crowd Delta Tau Delta 12-10.
However, the determined Delts,
guided by Gordy Marx, put down
the threat by holding their oppon
ents scoreless during the last
quarter as they added seven to
Marx led the victors with tea
Phi Delta Theta glided off to
14-to-6 advantage at halftime
which it rolled into 27-to-14 tri
umph over Tau Kappa Epsilon be
fore the final horn.
This game was of little signifi
cance since both teams had been
beaten in previous games.
George Rasmussen’s seven points
was high for the Phi Delts as was
Don Anderson’s five for the Tekes.
In another also-ran game, Pi
Kappa Alpha came from behind to
trounce the Fijis 27-21.
After a bitterly contested first
half which ended with Phi Gamma
Delta ahead ll-to-9, the Pi Iiaps
went to work producing points and
came up with the win.
Dick Patrick, Pi Kapp forward,
pushed through 12 points to take
top scoring spot while Don Lind
stedt with nine and Dave Holden
with eight headed the losers.
Never slap a man’s face is he is
chewing tobacco. It isn't good

his regular guard post.
“Neeley’s play will do much to
settle the team down, and that’s
w'hat we will need against these
boys,” Warren stated. The slim
sophomore has almost completely
recovered from the cold that laid
him low' last weekend.
The Webfoot mentor’s problem
will be how to stop Don Lofgran
and Joe McNamee, the top two
Don scorers. Both are 6-feet 6
inches tall and are effective un
der the boards besides pouring in
Lofgran is rated as the harder
of the two to stop, the lanky
transfer ... from . ..Sacramento’s
Grant Tech having stepped up his
scoring in the last few games.
A newcomer will probably
move into USF’s starting lineup
for their series here, guard Frank
Kuzara. He played brilliant ball
against Bradley Tech and San
Jose State over the weekend and
Coach Pete Newell has stated
that he will get the nod over Ross
Guidice, top scorer last season
for the San Francisco gang.
Kuzara was the top guard for
the Dons, and ranks sixth in
scoring. The top man backing up
the front line, Don Giesen, is ex
pected to see plenty of action here
this weekend. A six-footer, Gie
sen is a smooth floor man and
has shown flashes of scoring abil
ity this year. He ranked second
in point-production to Guidice
If they want to, the Dons can
start the tallest man on the floor,
reserve pivotman Walter Olson,
who is an inch taller than either
Roger Wiley or Bob Amacher.
However, it is doubtful if he will
even make the trip.
The Dons plan to leave San
Francisco late tomorrow after
noon and arrive in Eugene early
Friday morning. They do not plan j
to workout before the game. '
