It was certainly heartwarming to see Oregon bounce back
and push the Beaver ears back Friday night. Most of the game,
of course, was in the first half. In that period, the Ducks shot
an amazing percentage of .480. That's getting pretty accurate . . .

Undoubtedly, one factor in
the Webfoot victory was the
injury of Dick Ballantyne. Bal
lantyne is the leading OSC scor
er. (But we still say that he’s
no Cliff Crandall, and we wish
Mac Court fans could be treated
to the way he handles the ball...
take that any way you want.)
But, little Dick IS the leading
scorer, and he ordinarily would
be capable of at least eight to 10
points for the Orange. The rest
of the OSC team was ice cold
rriclay, so Ballantyne might have been, too. i hat s something
that can’t be known.
KIRSCH WAS BEST SUB
. Actually, the Aggies were far off form Friday, as they were
against WSC twice earlier in the season. Oregon was a plenty
hard team to stop, however, and even the league-leading Cougar
crew would have had trouble beating Warren’s crew.
Speaking of Coach John Warren, his trip through the Inland
Empire without his best health finally forced him on his back
in Sacred Heart Hospital. Assistant Coach Don Kirsch did an
effective job both nights.
It is interesting to note that the attendance at the Oregon
Aggie game in McArthur Court Friday was larger than that
of the earlier Lemon and Orange battle in Corvallis.
The Corvallis game, which OSC won, drew 8,030 people. In
the Igloo Friday night, Athletic Director Leo Harris said there
were 8,110 paid seats filled by spectators. Mac Court was pretty
tightly filled, although by no means packed. There were several
vacant seafs scattered through the throng.
In Gill Coliseum at the earlier game, there were also plenty
of vacant seats, but the place was by no means empty. Only the
high, mile-away-from-the-floor corner seats were empty. The
new hoop palace, when built, was said to be able to hold 10,000
‘GIGANTIC’ ISN’T THE WORD
It since- has become apparent that 10,000 can’t find seats
inside the Coliseum. Reportedly, the contractors figured the
size of the student seat wrong. OSC students, it seems, just like
any other students, can’t sit in 12-inch spaces after all. That
wasn’t the size set by the contractors, but it was smaller than
is actually needed by an ordinary human being.
So, the new Aggy hoop palace won’t hold 10,000 people,
but we will estimate that it will easily hold 9,000, so it will
still beat the Igloo. The question arises, of course, of where
are you going to get 10,000 people in Corvallis who want to see
"eTbasketball game. But, remember, people who like basketball
will drive a long way to see it.
At all conference games attended by this fan, there has
been pretty consistent dis-like of the officiating. Very few of the
dis-likers can say that the referees are partial . . . most of us can
admit that they call just as many bad ones on the opposition as
they do on the Ducks.
HOW ABOUT SOME STRIPED ABILITY?
Where does that leave us ? One sports writer put it well the
other night in Art Litchman’s office in McArthur Court. This
individual said that the whistle tooters are, he believes, com
pletely impartial. He also said that he further believes most of
the refs in these parts just aren't of the quality found in other
parts of the nation. Why not? That’s a good question.
Most of them were pretty fair basketball players in their
day, but still they call fouls which seem wrong. Maybe they just
aren’t good officials, as the sports writer in Litchman’s office
stated. A lawyer can be perfectly honest and still lose cases. A
doctor can be as ethical and white as mountain snow and still
have patients die. Ability is something which is needed in lots

Hailed a Success
BY NORMAN ANDERSON
If the Northwest Drama Conference had done nothing more
than bring the Portland Civic Theater production of “Yes, My
Darling Daughter” and Sally Rice to town, the Conference would
have still been a success.
Miss Rice captivated audiences Thursday and Friday nights
in the arena theater, 104 Villard, with her hilarious performance
as Ann Whitman Murray, the liberal-thinking mother who is

success in her role of Connie, the

Fenton, as the daughter, Ellen, was
convincing in her role.
Lee Arne, as Douglas Hall, El

difficulty in the first act in being,

it was because both played opposite

Jean McCaartney was good in
her small role of Martha, the maid.
One of the most enjoyable bits
of the entire show occurred in
first act conversation between Ann

of marriage and love.
Connie again provided laughs in
the last act in her sudden realiza

But again it was Miss Rice who
brought down the house with her
closing speech in the second act.
