    Duck Aqua-Men
Suffer; Sickness
With several key men suffering
from colds and injuries and an
other declared ineligible, the Ore
gon varsity swimming team has
suddenly lost its role as heavy fa
Iv^riue to win the intra-squad meet
which will be held tomorrow after
Anybody’s Meet
“It’s anybody's meet,” stated
Coach John Borchardt, who never
theless is hoping that his varsity
swimmers can outscore their op
ponents, the Freshmen and those
swimmers who have been declated
ineligible for competition in the
Northern Division of the Pacific
Coast Conference.
The varsity team recently suf
fered a damaging blow when Pete
Van Dijk, one of the fastest swim
mers that the University has ever
Pad, was declared ineligible for
Northern Division meets. He will
swim for the Frosh tomorrow.
Nlshlmoto Out
Another varsity star, Joe Nishi
moto, will not be able to take part
in the intra-squad battle because he
is ill in bed, suffering from an at
tack of influenza. Several of his
teammates have been temporarily
disabled by colds or injuries and
will not swim tomorrow.
With the loss of Don McKillap,
who recently injured his hand, the
JTYosh will not be able to face the
varsity in the diving events, but
Hhrry Ladas and Jim Stanley of

Yearlings Strong
The Yearlings will be powerful in
the 220 and 440-yard freestyle
races, with Van Dijk and Gordon
Edwards holding the major roles. It
is possible that some local records,
if not Northern Division records,
will be broken when these, two men
battle against each other.
The meet will be held in the
Mens’ Pool at 2:30 in the afternoon.
There will be no admission charge.
Frosh Ready;
Reds Next
Oregon’s power-packed Frosh
Basketball team will be out to im
prove it’s win-and-loss record this
weekend when Coach Don Kirsch
sends his charges against Redmond
High school Friday night and
Vanport Junior College on Satur
day. Both contests will be prelimi
naries to the Oregon-Washington
varsity games, and will start at
Vanport Again
Saturday night’s encounter will
be the second time the Ducklings
have played Vanport this season,
the first resulting in a thrilling 50
44 win for the Junior Greenmen.
Since that time hoopmen who were
then wearing Oregon colors, name
ly Lloyd Bergman, Keith Farnum,
and Don Hoy, have transferred to
the Junior College and will un
doubtedly be put into action against
their old teammates. These three,
plus guard LeRoy Coleman, center
Don Schuberg, and forward Art
Shepherd are counted on heavily by
Coach Arba Ager to provide the
Vanport scoring punch.
At the starting posts for the
Frosh will probably be the squad
that has seen most of the action in
the several scrimmages with -the
varsity this past week. The five
consists of Curt Barclay and Chet
Noe at the forwards, Hank Bonne
man at center, and Bud Covey and
Nick Schmer holding down the
guard positions.

Huskies Fear
Tough Battle
SEATTLE, Wash.—The Univer
sity of Washington, Cinderella bas
ketball team o fthe Northern Divi
sion, is still wearing its golden slip
With six conferenc games now in
the record books the Huskies who
were picked in pre-season selec
tions to finish no better than fourth
in a five team league, are leading
the parade two full games ahead of
second place Washington State.
They risk their hard-earned laurels
this week-end in a pair of return en
gagements with the Oregon Ducks.
Tough Game
Although the Huskies measured
the Webfoots by 69-49 and 66-51
scores last week-end in Seattle,
Coach Art McLarney predicts
tougher games at McArthur Court.
Likely he is remembering Washing
ton’s 1949 experience when the
Huskies invaded Eugene with a
pair of Seattle victories over the
Ducks, only to have Coach John
Warren’s cagers reverse the pro
cedure and take both games on
their own floor. Judged strictly on
form shown thus far in the season,
the Huskies should manage a split
series with the Webfoots. However,
the Oregons, when hot,, are the
most dangerous shooting team in
the league and could conceivably
sink Washington twice.
Off his performance in the
second Oregon game in Seattle,
Russ Parthemer may get the start
ing call over Hal Arnason at for
ward. With the Huskies trailing by
seven points midway through the
first half, Parthemer moved into
the line-up and tossed in three field
goals and a free throw to tie the
Guisness Leads
Flyin’ Frankie Guisness catapul
ted to the top of the Husky confer
ence scorers as a result of his shoot
ing proclivities against Oregon Fri
day and Saturday, passing his part
ner Lou Soriano who still leads in
overall season scoring. The sopho
more guard from' Vancouver un
loosed a 41-point barrage against
the Webfoots in the two-game set
to boost his conference mark to 80
points in six contests. Soriano is
close behind with 75 counters and a
season’s total of 191—tops for the
Dead Eye
Captain LaDon Henson’s deadly
shooting against the visiting Ore
gonians gave him the lead in shoot
ing percentages among the regu
lars with a .362 mark. In the foul
9hooting department, Guisness has
hit 30 out of 37, Soriano 17 out of
20, and Hal Arnason 8 out of 10.
Duane Enochs tops the club in per
sonal fouls with 25.

Ducks Ready
The Ducks dropped a pair of
Northern Division games to the
Huskies in Seattle last weekend
and now the two teams meet in the
final half of the 1950 series. Last
year the same situation existed.

games in Seattle and then came to
Eugene to run into an improved
Oregon team and lose the final two
For Dads
Coach Warren and his Ducks
would like to duplicate the 1949 re
suits and even the series again in
the final two games. In addition,
this weekend will be dedicated to
the Oregon Dads on the campus
and the Saturday basketball game
will be the climax of the annual af
fair. Last year the Oregon Dads
were on the campus for the Wash
