Oregon Wins Two;
Meets Idaho Next
Oregon’s Ducks swept to victories over St. Marys College and
the University of San Francisco Friday and Saturday nights in
the Bay City to bring their season record to eight wins and seven
tosses as they prepare for this weekend s invasion b> the Idaho
It was pretty largely the handi
work of Curt Barclay, six foot three
inch forward, and Center Jim Los
cutoff which enabled the Ducks to
notch a paper-thin-66-65 win over
St. Marys and a 09-49 triumph over
the USF Dons.
Barclay Deads Scoring
Barclay, who got the starting
call when Forward and Captain
Will Urban stayed home with an in
jured ankle, set a torrid pace Fri
day night as he looped in 10 field
goals plus a pair of free throws for
22 points. The Missoula, Mont.,
sophomore was slowed down just a
little by the Dons as he banged
home five from the field and seven
charity tosses without a miss for
John Warren’s rugged center.
Loscutoff, rang the bell for 10
points In the oponer in San Fran
cisco’s Cow Palace and followed
up in the second tilt with 17, ty
ing Barclay for high point honors
in that one.
In both outings, it was eagle-eye
accuracy at the free throw line
which gave the Ducks a win. St.
Marys outscored them 52-46 from
the field, but Oregon hit on 20 out
of 27 free tosses to the Gaels’ 13
out of 27. It was the same story
against USF, with the Ducks’ 23
to 9 edge in free throws wiping out
the Dons’ field goal margin.
Peterson Chips In
Bob Peterson, the big forward
who saw his first action a week be
fore against Washington, was held
to six points in the first game, but
added 12 in the second. Guards Mel
Krause and Jack Keller had 15 and
14 points for the series, respective
ly, while Center Chet Noe and
Guard Ken Hunt each had six, all
in the first game.

in a three-way tie for second place
an the ND with a two won, two lost
record. The Vandals have split with
Oregon State and Washington
State. Oregon's only conference ac
tion was against Washington, which
beat the Ducks twice.
Skiers Try Out
Twenty Oregon skiers trekked
to Hoodoo Bowl over the weekend
hoping to get in slalom, downhill,
and cross-country tryouts for the
Oregon ski team, but had to set
tle for just the slaloms as rain
turned the downhill course into
Bill Bowerman, track coach and
frosh football mentor, headed the
trip into the snow country in the
absence of Athletic Director Leo
Harris who is scheduled to head
the ski team. Bowerman termed
the results of the abbreviated trip
“good" for this stage in the sea
Me Math Has Best Time
George McMath had the best
time in the slaloms with a com
bined time of 60.3 seconds for his
two runs. Behind McMath was
Stu McCollom with a combined
mark of 65.7 seconds, and he was
followed by Sol Zaik who had 75.6.
Zaik also had the best single time,
29.7 seconds, but fell on his other
run and had to settle for third.
This coming weekend the group
will go to Mt. Hood for the down
hill and cross country trials. A
squad of about 10 men will be sel

outs, Bowerman said, From six to
