    Duck Cagers Prepare
For Salt Lake Games
Webfoot Open
Season Friday
With Utah State
A two-night stand at Salt Lake
City Friday and Saturday will give
University of Oregon basketball
fans an idea of just what the 1949
50 Webfoots “have got.’’
Meanwhile, Head Coach Johr
IWarren, ran his cagers through a
rugged practice session Tuesday a1
McArthur Court. The practice wa?
highlighted by a scrimmage
against the Frosh basketeers.
The Ducks will probably hit the
road Thursday, and arrive in Salt
Lake City in plenty of time to wort
out the kinks before tackling Utah
State Friday night in the opener.
The Ducks will follow up bj
meeting the University of Utah the
following night.
The Utah games are the first in
a series of It non-conference work
outs for Oregon before they begin
Northern Division play Jan. 6.
Webfoot hopes ride with the ef
fectiveness of Mel Streeter, trans
fer from Los Angeles, and the abil
ity of Bob Amacher to develop as a
scoring threat. Forward Will Ur
ban's work under the basket, and
whether Paul Sowers, sharp-shoot
ing guard, will be hitting are other
factors which will contribute to
Duck failure or success.
The home court openers for the
Oregon quintet are slated for Dec.
9 and 10 when the Blue-and-Gold
A thletic club is expected to give the
Webfoots a lesson in basketball.
The Blue-and-Gold club was form
erly the Oakland Bittners, who are
the defending National A.A.U.
The Ducks will test the strength
of the Southern Division Dec. 20
and 21 when they play host to Stan

To Plav in Press Bowl
By United Press
Four more bowl game pairings
were completed yesterday but the
San Francisco Press Club was dis
appointed when Villanova turned
down an invitation to play College
of the Pacific in the Press Bowl at

The Daddy of 'em All....
Phi Psi Takes on Chi Psi
In Annual]Beer Bowl Tilt
Four kegs of beer will be at stake
Saturday afternoon, when the twc
thirstiest elevens in the country
the Chi Psis and Phi Psis, collide in
the 16th annual playing of the Beer
Bowl game—the ‘daddy’ of ’em all.
This traditional tussle, slated
for 1:30 p.m. on the intramural
field, was originated at Oregon in
1931 with the Phi Psis taking the
initial contest 6-0.
Of the 15 games played to date,
the Big Red from the White House
has collected nine victories and 36
kegs to five and 20 for the Lodge
men—two tilts ended in scoreless
deadlocks. In the last brawl, held
in 1947, the Chi Psis emerged vic
torious by a 2-to-0 count.
After breezing to the intra
mural touch football champion
ship, the Blue-and-Gold brigade
will be heavily favored to win the
annual tackle orgy again this
Reports from the Chi Psi train
ing camp have it that a devastat
ing new passing attack has been
cooked up especially for the 11th
Avenue Boozer Boys.
Choo-Choo Charlie Rufner, Chi
Psi grid boss, has kept mum about
his team’s chances for victory, but
Lodge fans are anything but pessi
mistic as to the outcome of Satur
day’s “Battle for Brew.”
The Phi Psi coaching staff re
ports the Big Red squad to be in
only fair shape after a rugged
schedule of beer-busts and par
While passing the crying towel
around, the Big Red head men all
voiced the opinion that they could
n’t possibly stop the Chi Psi’s dazz
ling aerial attack and just hoped
the score wouldn’t be too big
against them.
“Cool” Cal Smith, backfield
coach stated, “We haven’t got a
chance but we’ll be fightin’ all the
Line mentor “Tiny” Tim Preston
commented, “Even if’n we don’t
whup ’em, dem bums ’ull know day

ner and moaned.

of the loafer socks we're featuring
this week. They're the best value
we've seen in years.
The top part is 100% virgin knitted

They're terrific—better than any
thing else for comfortable lounging.
