home series for Oregon.
The Webfoots have won their last
six non-conference games, but drop
ped two battles with Washington
at Seattle in their only league play.
Vandals Tall
Idaho is rated as the best team
. out of Moscow in at least the last
five year s. Because of Oregon s
losses to Washington, the Vandals
will probably go into the games as
. slight favorites.
Idaho this year has a tall team
rated as one of the tallest in the
west. The games will probably fea

Oregon may not make any
changes in its starting line-up, de

in practice. He may not see action
this weekend, after being out last

and Jack Keller will again be at the
guard spots.

came here Monday to study a mini
mum of proposed changes in the

ing the NCAA convention, to ex

.•one of the coaches' proposals. This

down length of time-outs, time to

Fair Catch Returns
Lou Little of Columbia, chairman
of the football coaches rules com
mittee, reported an overwhelming
sentiment for return of the fair
The Dallas convention handled
much legislation, most important of
which was eliminating the contro

Siegmund is second with five out
of nine for a .556 percentage, and
Rogers follows closely with six oOt
of eleven for .546.
Disregarding the records of the
ineligibles, the Ducklings have
cashed in on only 40 out of their 71
gift tosses for an unspectacular
.563 average.
Coach Dpn Kirsch’s undefeated

Cougars Prep
For Washington
And Crucial Set
PULLMAN — King basketball
should reach its peak around the
Northwest this coming weekend,
January 19 -and 20. Coach Jack
Friel’s Cougars will attempt to
match baskets with Coach Tippy
Dye’s highly favored Washington
Huskies in a two game series at
Rated as the top team in the
Northern Division, the Huskies will
probably start a quintet composed
of Doug McClary and Frank Guis
ness at forwards, Bob Houbregs at
center, and Louis Soriano and La
Don Henson at guards. This quin
tet will definitely boast a height
advantage over the Cougars.
Good Average
Three of the Husky starters have
a better than .400 per cent shooting
average from the floor. The Husk
ies will test the Friel devised de
fenses with their 62.6 point per
game this season. To date the
Cougars have held down their op
ponents to only a 52.5 point aver
age per game.
Offensively the Cougars will
have such scorers as Peter Mullins,
Sydney, Australia. Bob Gambold,
Longview, and Eric Roberts, Holly
wood. Mullins has been snapping
the twine with an 8.8 average per
game; Gambold has an average of
8.7 points per game.
Roberts, with only a 5.3 average
per game to date has been moved in
to a starting forward role.
He averaged 11 points per game
in the first Northern Division
games assignments.
Rounding out the Cougar start
ing five will be George Rosser, cen
ter, Bellingham and Leon Mangis,
Both are veterans and should add
greatly to the Cougar- defensive
power with their strong checking
