small. Oregon State can tie for the championship (necessitating

According to official Pacific
(’oast Conference statistics, cover
ii^r all games previous to the Ore
goil-Cougar series Tuesday and
Wednesday, the TOP FIVE North
ern Division hoopers In the field
goal accuracy department (for 10
or more games) were members of
Coach William Henry Harrison
Dye's powerful Seattle aggrega
Reserve Center Duane Enochs, a
six-foot, five-inch pivot man from
Jefferson High in Portland, leads
the list with an impressive .390 av
erage on 16 field goals in 41 at
He is followed by Guard Louie
Soriano, usually described as
“chunky” by Nil sporl-.writers,
an All-Northern Division hoop
ace and a United Press All-Coast
guard. Soriano, who took those
honors with a .318 field goal av
erage in 1950, is now pounding
the hoop at a furious .38/5 clip.
Third place in the Northern Di
vision is held by Husky Center Bob
Houbregs, a Seattle sophomore
with an average of .381.
Closely following with n .378
mark is Forward I-aDon Henson,
who has ranked among the top ten
seprefs in the ND during his past
tTJvee seasons. He saw action as a
freshman in 1945.
Sophomore Forward Doug Me
Clary Is next on the lint of high
acorlng Washingtonians. McClary
has 32 field goals in 80 attempt)), a
respectable .300 average.
Duck Vonvard Mel Streeter
played In tils 10th ,NI) skirmish
Tuesday and now ranks as one of
the top field goal accuracy ar
tists in the circuit. Streeter has
10 field goals In 26 attempts for a
.383 average, considerably better
than his 1040-30 total season
mark of .258.
This means that Coach Dye has
five of the top .six accuracy men in
the loop. The question might be
asked, "Why doesn't Washington
start those five in every game?"
The answer, of course, is found in
the simple fact that basketball is a
game requiring defensive skills as
well as offensive abilities.
Four of the Husky accuracy
artists—llouhregs, Soriano, Hen
son, and Medaly—are starters.
The fifth, Forward Enochs, sees
action only when teammate.
Frank Gulsness is removed from
the game.
Guisncsa, a second team All
Coast forward last season, has been
described by Husky publicity
agents as the "best defensive play
er" on the 1040-50 Washington
quintet. He usually was assigned to
guard the highest scorer on the op
ponents' squad.
Both Oregon and Washington are
well-equipped with brilliant back
board performers. Guisness utilizes
his six feet, three inches to good
advantage and is an outstanding re
Seattle publicity releases rank
Knocks as a “terrific rebound
man," six-foot, seven-inch Center
Houbregs is “one of the best”
Washington backboard men, and
Doug McClary (another six-foot,
seven-lncher) demonstrated “the
best rebound ability on the team”
during pre-season practice ses
In addition. Guard Mike McCut
chen is "an excellent rebounder”
(and also the "best set shot" on the
team), while Forward "Jumping
Jack" Ward earned his title by em
ploying his outstanding backboard
ability last year.

The Ducks also are noted mast
ers of the art of rebound acquisi
tion. Oregon has recovered more
than half of the rebounds in 23 of
the 27 Webfoot skirmishes of the
present campaign.

Duck backboard aces. While losing
the two-game series with the pow

seized 113 rebounds and held Wy

Similar results were recorded
in other non-eonferenee and con
ference clashes. Only Idaho and
Washington excelled the Ducks
in the backboarddivision. Idaho
performed that feat twice in Mos

Team Chances
Most Students
By Helen Jackson
With only four more conference
games facing the Oregon team and
after the excitement instilled after
this week’s two games with Wash
ington State, it seemed pertinent
to ask: "What do you think of
Oregon’s chances for staying on
top in Northern Division basket
As for student reaction, not one
of those interviewed seemed to
have too many doubts. Some
thought Oregon State could be a
stumbling block, but Washington
seemed to be the popular choice
for inciting fear.
Mary Juergens - junior in French
"I suppose we have as good a
chance as anyone. We got to the
top by fighting, now I think we
can stay there by fighting!"
Joan Avery junior in education
"It’s a cinch if we can beat
Washington. That’s all we've got
to do!"
Joe French senior in business
"After Oregon State's slow motion
ball last Saturday night in Cor
| vallis, they shouldn’t prove to be
an obstacle in the path of Oregon’s
| Northern Division chances. How
j ever, I predict we’ll lose one game
| to Washington but we’ll still cap
j ture the Northern Division title.”
Illck Anderson freshman in lib
eral arts— "I think we’ve got it
cinched. We can beat Washington
if we practice up a little more and
we can beat Oregon State easily.”
Joun Ross junior in English—
"I think we have a good chance
if they use the same team work
as they’ve used in the last two
games against Washington State.”
Tom Williams -junior in busi
ness "I think our chances are
as good as Washington’s, to say
the least!”
Jock Glasgow senior in business
—-“If we can beat Oregon State
both games then we can win the
Northern Division title because
they are always the ones who foul
us up.”

Novice Profs Hoe Tough Row,
Yet Profession Plenty Popular

If you should become a student
teacher you wouldn’t receive any
salary, you’d have to furnish your
own transportation, and you’d re
ceive six term hours credit for
teaching ten hours a week.
Even so, 120 students are in this
time-consumning program at the
University. They teach everywhere
in the Eugene region from Uni
versity High School to Springfield
High School and they teach ‘'every
type of course except industrial
arts and home economics, which
are reserved for Oregon State”,
according to P. E. Kambley, direct
or of supervised teaching.
To become a student teacher you
must have taken a nine term hour
sequence in education and an ade
quate background in your teaching
field suitable for teaching junior
and senior high classes. You’d
probably have to squeeze a few
extra hours into your schedule,
too, because education students
usually find it necessary to carry
a light load while taking student
But after you’ve gone through
the hardships of student teaching
you’ll probably value the exper
ience above everything else. "The
concensus of teachers who have
gone through the teacher’s train
ing program is that this program
was the most valuable phase of
their professional training,” Kam
bley reported.
