They don’t get l»ijj headlines in the Portland papers when
they win or lose a game, hut the Oregon junior varsity basket
ball team plays a vital part in the local hoop picture.
l'or one thing, they practice with the varsity this year, not
separately as frosh teams did before* the freshman eligibility
ruling, and tiles thus are guinea pigs for any new schemes Bill
liorchcr's crew is planning to use against h’rank Duisness and
company, or the other Northern Division teams.
in connection with that, this year is unique in that the
freshman ruling has been rescinded for next season, so the
basketball and football setups will return to separate fresh
man and varsity teams.
As it is now, the Oregon JV team is composed of a com
bination of freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. The frosh don’t
predominate as much as you might expect, because of the
abnormally slim crop of high school stars who entered Ore
gon last fall.
Such prep hot-shots as Bill Toole and Ron Robins went to
( >St , w hile hugene high school's own 1 lean Parsons was a com
plete traitor to the cause, as he enrolled at Washington. In
cidentally he is seeing considerable varsity action and will be
here for the forthcoming Husky .series.
Three Sophs in Starting Lineup
- Anyway, getting back to the < )regon junior varsity, the
lion Rirsch-coached Ducklings have a record of five wins and
three, losses in competition with other JY teams, and tw o vic
tories against one loss in frosh competition.
'I be regular starting lineup for the Ducklings includes Ron
Phillips and Howard Page at guards, Doug Rogers at center,
and Don Seigmund and Hugh Marxcr at forwards.
Phillips, a sophomore from Roosevelt high in Portland, is
tabbed by Kirsch as one of the better shots on either the var
sity or JV squads. If he possessed more speed or defensive
skill, Kirsch thinks the six-foot, two-inch guard would see a
lot of varsity action.
Howard Page is a freshman who played for Borcher last
year at Coos Bav. The six-foot-tall southpaw has a deadly
shot, hut Kirsch says he also lacks in speed for breakneck
varsity competition.
A Salem boy, Dong Rogers is another sophomore who scored
f>5 points for last year’s frosh squad. The six-foot, threc-inch
center i> cited bv Kirsch a> a good team man and a capable de
fensive performer.
Seigmund is Baseball Hurler
AImi a promising baseball pitcher is left-handed Don Seig
tnund. a husky forward who rounds out the trio of sophomores
on the starting lineup all of whom played for the 1951 frosh.
His coach calls him an outstanding rebounder, although not an
w especially potent scorer. He carries 200 pounds on a six-foot
frame. • •
An ex-Washington high school performer is Hugh Marxer,
the other forward. The former Colonial does everything fairly
well, according to Kirsch, but lacks somewhat in aggressive
ness. Marxer is six-feet, two-inches tall.
Another JV who has seen considerable action is Bill Choat.
six-foot, six-inches of basketball center material from North
llend, a stones throw from Borcher’s stamping ground. Choat
is the tallest man on the squad, but to bis height he has a lot
to add in the way of coordination.
Wayne Johnson, junior and football end in season, turned out
late, and Kirsch says he also needs a lot of work. Built like
a basketball player, Johnson is a forward, six-feet, four-inches
Kirsch Says JV's Have Good Spirit
Freshman Bill Blodgett from Grant high in Portland is an
other recent addition to the JV squad. Blodgett is a forward in
basketball, and additionally a rather promising baseball luirler.
Paul Bylirc of Washington high and Rex Davis of Milwaukie
are two other frosh hoopsters who also have potentialities on
the diamond.
Ray Hempy from Berkeley, Cal., is the only out-of-state per
former on the squad. Hempy, another freshman, is a lean six
foot, three-inch forward.
Two men who were counted or. for much help are scholastic
ally ineligible this term. They are Larry Chamberlain, guard
from Salem, and Dick Kofford, who hails from La Grande.
Of the JV team as a whole, Kirsch says:
_ In general this team is a little below par in natural ability,
but they do have a fine spirit. They are playing for the fun of
it, but they like to win, and they try very hard.

Baseball has started informally
this week, as pitchers and catchers

Campus Interviews on Cigarette 1 ests
Descended from a long line of distinguished
researchers, this studious scholar has burned too many
gallons of midnight oil to gloss over a subject lightly.
Especially such an important item as cigarette mildness.
He burrowed into the matter with his usual resolution
and concluded that a “quick puff” or a “fast sniff”
doesn’t offer much evidence. Millions of smokers agree
there’s but one true test of cigarette mildness.
It’s the sensible test...the 30-Day Camel Mildness
Test, which simply asks you to try Camels as your
steady smoke on a day-after-day, pack-after-pack basis.
No snap judgments! Once you’ve tried Camels for
30 days in your “T-Zone” (T for Throat, T for Taste),
you’ll see why ...
After all the Mildness Tests .. •
