recent football season, will get
hack on its habitual track this
weekend and bring the Willam

teams together, the only unde
feated outfits In the Northwest
This was assured Tuesday night
when Willamette, playing in-an-out
basketball but in general a
much better game than in its first
encounter with the Pirates, de
feated the Albany college hoop
sters 47 to 23 on the Willamette
floor; and Whitman made a clean
weep of its series with College
of Puget Sound, winning the sec
ond game 32 to 34.
Bill Lemmon, sophomore for

Bearcat attack Tuesday night,
gathering In 11 points and play

long-range aim Was Improved and
he and RIeke ranked next. Lem

which has been missing all sea

Albany's hopes were rather
badly ahot before the game had
gone two minutes, for Polston,
counted on to lead the Pirate
coring machine, left the game
with a sprained ankle. The blow
was so severe that Coach Lappen

until they were on the short end
of a 13-1 score. They rallied later
and were behind 26 to 9 at half
time. Both coaches used all the

Baseball dab owners of the Na
tional league wrestled, today with
most of their main problems, In
cluding some means to operate
the financial pulmotor on the
minor leagues, but the only con
crete results of nearly five hoars'
discussion were: (1) The tight
ening of regulations against giv
ing bonuses to ballplayers, and
(2) plans to stage east-west com
petition earlier In the season.
The magnates deferred defin
ite adoption of their 1938 sched
ule, however, in hopeful contem
plation of the Pennsylvania legis
lation aimed at permitting San-
day baseball in Pittsburgh and
Philadelphia. Alternative sched
ules have been drawn but the
opening and closing dates, April
12 and October 1, are the same.

Basketball competition between
Willamette and Whitman has
been the whole show In the
Northwest conference in past sea
sons and there s Just a chance
that it will be again this season
we're writing this prior to
hearing the resnlts of Whitman's
second game with Puget Sound.
Whatever the results of the
Whitman-Willamette games here
this week, the Bearcats must still
clash with the Loggers in the lat
ter's own mill-pond.
Up to now, Northwest con
ference basketball champion
ship have been divided exclu
sively between Willamette and
Whitman. Despite couple of
disputes which were never set
tled absolutely, the division baa
been quite even; and whichever
one of the two won first place,
the other has always ranked

year were Howie Morenz, Ebbie
Goodf allow, Charley Cooacher, BUI
Cook and Ace Bailey: and only two
of those boys are left-handers
Morenz and GoodfeHow.
So that seems to shade the theory
that hockey is a game for left-handers.
But Just to give us another
twist we find that one goal tender
in the entire league is a right-hander.
The others are all lefties.
We'll let you name your own
southpaws in baseball too numer
ous to mention, when we have a spe

the squib, ana it is "guaranteed":
If you have a youngster and want
to know whether he will grow np to
be a left-hander or just like the
rest of us, consult the back of his
head where the hair grows in spi
rals. If the spiral Is clockwise,
your heir is a right-hander. If
counter-clockwise, you've got a
southpaw in the family.

It's an odd coincidence that
the three series played on Wil
lamette's floor, in 1927. 1928
and 1931, have all been divided.
Whitman has won seven games
to Willamette's five, and if the
Bearcats oould manage to win
two this year, it would be all
square. However Willamette has
considerable edge on the scor
ing, 420 points to Whitman's 371.

Just as was predicted. Dee
Anderson and Bobby Novak both
trotted out their special holds
when they clashed on the armory
mat Tuesday night, and each one
nsed his pet grip to obtain a tall;
but the odd one was, in truth,
odd. It went to Anderson.
It was a elean, hard-fonght and
generally pleasing match, with
Anderson prevailing by virtue of
his Juggler whirl at the end of
15 minutes, seven seconds, Novak
after 2:10 with his figure - four
In the third round Novak
clamped on his unbreakable scis
sors again and Anderson started
doing things about it. He got np
twice, still with the triangle about
his midriff, and dropped back to
the canvas; but the third time he
arose, he managed to fall in such
manner that Novak took the full
force and didn't know anything
about it. It was called a backward
body slam and the time was 9:40.
