The Heavers arc coming, the game'hi m si^ht; the Heavers
arc coinin', oh what a fi^lit- but perhaps it i better that we
should stick to prose and simply say that the annual vendetta
between the two arch rivals m the Willamette valley will get
off to a flying start Friday when the local Ducks travel to Gill
Coliseum in Corvallis and match baskets with Coach Slats
Gill’s OSC Heavers. %
The thoHjjht of Gill Cob curp tako ns back to the Friday
nipht of March last, when the Ducks, paced by “Yo-yo" Jim
l.oseutoff, Curt Barclay, and Hob l’eterson boomed into the
spacious new hoop plant for their third jpamc with the Heavers.
The Webfoots were fresli from a K2-75 victory over the Wash
iiif^tun Huskies, later N D
champions, and they had to
v. in against the Beavers to
have a chance for a tie against
tin- men from Seattle.
The game started slowly,
with the deliberate tactics of ^
the Beavers setting the pace |
for a usually fast-break happy
clan of Oregon hoopsters. Par
enthetically. we might mention
that they scored 52 points in
the first half of that Washing
ton game, so they usually had
no trouble finding the most
direct route to the basket.
But this was not to be their
night. They blew an early lead
and went into the final minutes
trailing, although they narrowed the margin to 41-39 just be
fore the finish.
It was then that one of the more memorable incidents of the
1951 season took place. There have been various versions of
v/hy it happened, but we would say that it was just plain built
up tension of a tight and crucial game.
Big Bob Peterson was attemptinn to intercept a Beaver
throw-in from the sidelines with seconds remaining, when the
riding of a fan frayed his nerves to the point of breaking, and
he headed for that fan with blood i bis eye.
They were soon separated, however, and Duck Coach John
Warren escorted an angry Peterson off the floor. But it did
not end there. Peterson showed himself sincerely sorry as he
publicly apologized the next night at McArthur Court, and the
Ducks rolled to a 67-42 triumph over the Beavers.
Pete May Get Riding
do not be overly surprised if you hear Peterson get a
very thorough riding Friday night at Corvallis. This time, how
ever, he should undoubtedly take it in bis stride.
Whatever else this coming weekend series with the Beavers
will show, it will be the first time that freshman mentor Bill
Borcher locks horns with the old pro of northwest basketball,
Amory T. “Slats" Gill.
Gill first came to Corvallis in the fall of 1920 as a highly
touted prep star from Salem high, and has been on the campus
ever since, except for a one-year absence immediately after his
He took the OSC head post in 1928, and since then his teams
have been Northern Division champions six times. They have
won the l’CC title three times: in 1933, 1947, and 1949.
The feelings of the Corvallis school regarding their veteran
mentor could have been no more fittingly shown than when
they named their 10,500 capacity basketball plant after him.
Most honors of this type come posthumously, but Slats Gill
is very much alive.
Borcher Wants Jazz Combo Back
Turning from Gill to Borcher, the Oregon coach was telling
us Tuesday that he and his players enjoyed the swing music
played by the small volunteer pep band several games back at
McArthur court.
They also appreciate the larger band which has performed for
the last few contests, but feel that the jazzy repretoire of the
smaller outfit is more effective in relieving the tension. So
they wish to ask if there is some way they can get the more
syncopated combo back in action. Is there?

Decides Gorillas Can't
Compete With Men
NEW HAVEN, Conn. «J.R) —
Gorillas can't keep up with this
modern age.
A retired Yale professor, Robert
M. Yerkes, predicts that within
the next 100 years the popular zoo
animal will be extinct.
Gorillas have “no chance of sur
vival in competition with man,”
says Yerkes. "The animals, either
must be protected in their natural
habitat or bred successfully in cap
tivity. Otherwise they won’t be
around any more."

Campus Interviews on Cigarette Tests
No. 35..
I'm a sucker
left hook!
/Always a sucker for attractive bait, our aquatic
brother went off the deep end and got caught
on the quick-trick cigarette hook! But he wormed
his way out when he suddenly realized that
cigarette mildness can't be tossed off reel lightly.
Millions of smokers have found, too, there's only
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...
