Deadeye Ducks Drop D6gs
I Kramer Said
(Best in World
iBy Bob Riggs
When Bobby Riggs' professional
tennis troupe puts on an exhibition
jn McArthur Court February 8 the
star of the matches will be Jack
Kramer, world's professional tennis
champ, whom Riggs has called “the
greatest tennis player of all time,
except Bill Tilden.”
“Except for several unfortunate
bouts of illness and a hitch in the
Coast Guard, Kramer would prob
ably have the most impressive rec
ord in tennis history,” Riggs has
Kramer vs. Gonzales
Explaining why he matched Kra
mer and Pancho Gonzales together,
lyggs said he wanted to give Gon
zales, who is only 21-years old, the
benefit of playing against and
learning from the great pro cham
“Even though Pancho won the
National Singles title for the past
two years. T still feel that he’s an
up-and-coming player," Riggs con
tinued. “He has improved tremend
ously in the matches, already, and
Is winning more often."
Kramer started his tennis career
in San Bernardino. Cal., captured
two U. S. single titles, turned pro
fessional, grabbed the U. S, profes
sional championship in 19-18, and
extended his grasp to the world’s
pro title last year. The 28-year-old
registered a sensational tour dur
ing the remainder of 1949, and
earned $125,000 from his court ef
Both I'm' Power
Kramer is a‘power player, as is
his opponent, Gonzales. He uses a
blistering serve, backed by an ag
gressive net game. He couples these
factors with good control, and a
terrific forehand, a nearly unbeat
able combination. Nearly 1000 re
served tickets have been sold for
the exhibition, which will also fea
ture a single match by Frankie Par
ker against Francisco Segura, and
;; doubles event. Student tickets
are 50 cents, while regular general
admission is 90 cents.
There is only one thing worse
than a family quarrel and that is
a church quarrel.

Ducklings Whip Redmond
In Preliminary Tilt, 81-19
The Oregon Frosh Basketball
team completely outclassed the
Redmond High quintet, 81-19, in
the preliminary to the Oregon
Washington varsity fray last night
at McArthur Court.
NO Height for Redmond
The Redmond hoopsters suffered
notably from lack of height and al
ter the Ducklings had run up a 23-5
lead at the end of the first quarter
the contest was never in doubt.
The Frosh stalling five, which
consisted of Jim Livesay, Ken Tor
gerse’n, Hank Bonnemann,' Jack
Sherman, and Sam Conchetti was
relieved at the beginning of the
second period by Curt Barclay,
Chet Noe, Nick Sehmer, and Bud
Covey, with Livesay remaining at a
forward berth.
With two minutes remaining in
the first half Fred Mueller, Tom
Matthews, Ted Johnson, and Frank
Kittridge came in for the Frosh and
ran the score up to 43-9 before the
whistle blew.
First String Not Needed
The starting lineup began the
second half and again the game was

completely dominated by Green
men. As a matter of fact, at one
time the Frosh tallied 17 straight
points before the prep five was able
to score.
'The third period ended, 65-12,
and, with Curt Barclay potting the
last five Frosh field goals, the
Ducklings finished on top of an 81
19 score.
Noe. Bonneman, and Torgerson
had control of both backboards
throughout the contest, and the
guard twosome of Covey and
Schmer played their usual sterling
defensive game.
The contest was well-fought on
both sides, and was highlighted by
the fact that only nine personals
were called in the entire evening,
five o ntheFro sh and four on Red
Fouls Out
List night’s Oregon-Washington
game with five personal fouls in
the second half, was guarded
tightly throughout the game by
Oregon Guard Jack Keller. Guis
ness, however, did pick up 13
points for the Huskies.
The University of Oregon Web
foots, red-hot with a .333 shooting
average, overhelmed the Washing
ton Huskies in McArthur Court last
night, 57-49.
Art McClarney’s Huskies were
throttled by Coach John Warren’s
collapsing-man-to-man defense.
This was a man-to-man guarding
situation in front of the key, but
when the ball penetrated to the
forwards, the Ducks slipped into a
zone and froze it.
At the half-time, the Ducks led,
28-23. At the beginning of the sec
ond half, Oregon went wild and
started potting baskets—long ones
and short ones—free throws and
Ducks Fight All The Way
The Ducks were a fighting, win
ning team all the way. Washington
got ahead at one point early in the
game and tied it up four times in
the first half.
Little Guard Jack Keller put fans
into hysteria with his consistent
swishing of the bucket from way
out, and with his tight guarding of
Washington star Frank Guisness
who made 13 points before he foul
ed out of the game. Center Duane
Enochs also left the game on per

High man for Oregon was the in
comparable Keller, with 16 points.
Paul Sowers, who looked like his
old self with quick long shots, piled
up 13 points for second Duck hon
For Washington, it was LaDon
Henson with a tricky over-the
head shot who led all Purple
scorers. He pulled in 14, and Guis
ness followed with 13.
Little Louie Soriana, usual Hus
kie dead-eye, made only seven
points, on a three for 15 field goal
average and one free throw.
Amaeher Comes Through
Big Bob Amaeher, huge Duck
center who has seen little action
this season, came through last
night when Oregon needed him. He
collected only four points after be
ing inserted into the game in the
second half, but again and again
grabbed rebounds and controlled
the backboards in critical moments
of the second half.
When the second half began, Ore
