It will be back into action for
Coach Don Kirsch's javvees this
week when the squad encounters
the Linfield Frosli and the Pacific
JV's in a two game series at Mc
Arthur Court. Monday night the
high-scoring jayvees will take on
Linfield in a game which promises
a lot of action and Tuesday night
they will meet the JV's from Pa
cific. Both games will serve as
preliminaries to the Oregon-V\ ash
ington State series and will get
under way at 6 p.m.
Thus far the Ducklings have en
joyed a better than average sea
son: winning all but one ot their
six games. Partly responsible for
this has been Larry Chamberlain,
a courtwise all-stater from Salem,
who currently holds top rung in
team scoring with 58 points.
Not far behind is sophomore j
Ron Phillips with 48. Don Sieg- |
muiul ranks third with 8*1 counters.
Top average goes to Ron Bottler,
who has racked up thirty points in
two games for a 15 per game
The squad, idle since December
22, will be somewhat reduced for
the Monday night game against
Linfield, with only the freshmen
seeing action. However, the entire
team will be eligible for the Pa
cific game. Top five scoreis are
as follows:
The FBI will be watching Ore
gon's game with Washington State
But the Federal Bureau of In
vestigation members won't be on
the look-out for a “fix." The agents
will be in town for the regular
meeting of Oregon graduates of
the FBI academy.
The federal law' enforcement men
and their wives will attend a din
ner before the basketball game.

Jack i
The 32-year-oia »orcner, wno
camp t<> Oregon after a brilliant
carper at Marshfield high school,
had this to say about hia Northern
Division debut:
Good Chance Seen
"It's uncertain how wc will come
out against WSC, because we have
sometimes performed well In the
pre-season games, and other times
not so well. I do think that if we
play the kind of basketball we ate
capable of. we have a good chance
against the Cougars.”
The crew from tin- Palotisc HUN
swings Into Kugene after splitting
a tun game series with the ON(
Beaver* Friday and Saturday
nights. They lost the first tilt, but
came strongly to post a 51-41 vic
tory Saturday after being tied 37
37 with five minutes left.
Scoring leader Saturday night
was Forward Eric Ftobcits, six
i foot, three-inch senior from Holly
wood, California, who had IS
; points. The lanky Cougar, also ND
, high jump champion, ts also potent
1 on the backboards.
Rosser Scores 15
Another Cougar to watch is
George Rosser, six-foot, two-inch
center from Bellingham, and co
captain along with Roberts. Rather
short for a center, Rosser uses his
205 pounds to advantage under the
backboards. Saturday night he
scored 15 points and was instru
mental in the Cougar victory.
Also in the starting lineup for
the Cougars, who use two platoons
extensively, will be Phil Brown and
Bob Swanson at the guards. Brown,
a six-foot, three-inch sophomore,
i sparkled Saturday. He scored 11
points and was potent on the de
fensive boards in the final-quar
ter Cougar surge to victory.
Swanson, another six-foot, three
ineh sophomore, is a defensive
specialist. At the other forward
spot will be Peter Mullins, Austra
lia’s six-foot, four-inch contribu
tion to UA basketball. Mullins is
a fine floor man and a deadly shot.
He was captain of the all-Austra
lia hoop team in 1919, and also
placed sixth In the decathlon event
for Australia in the 1948 Olympics.
The Cougars have a fine record
in non-conference competition, hav
ing 10 non-conference wins and
only four defeats, with nine vic
tories in their last 10 games.
WSC Reads All-Time Series
Last season WSC finished third
in the ND, with seven wins and
nine losses. In four games with
Oregon, the Ducks won three;
sweeping the Eugene pair 66-57
and 57-55. At Pullman the Cougars
took the first contest, 60-63, but
lost 54-52 to Oregon in the second.,
The all-time won and lost rec
ord bet ween Oregon and WSC
stands at 53 wins for the Cougars
to 49 for the Ducks.
For Coach Bill Borcher’s Oregon
Ducks, starting at forward will be
six-foot, five-inch Bob Peterson,
All-Northern Division last season,
and possesor of a sparkling 15.2
points per game average for 182
points in the 12 non-conference.
Also one of the top rebounders in
the nation, Peterson will be marked
man against WSC.
Streeter improving;
At the other forward for the
Ducks will be Mel Streeter, six
foot, four-inch senior from Los
Angeles. Streeter is also potent on
the backboards, and is giving indi
cations of developing into a scor
ing threat, with 72 points in pre
season play.
At the phot position will be six
foot,^ eight-inch Chet Noe, an im
proving junior, also from Los
Angeles. Noe has lot points arji .5^
12.8 average to put him seconmot
Peterson in tin* 12 |{uin,-H this year.
