: night, " and Coach "Spec"
Keen left them In the fray as
they piled up an Impressive lead
od then held enough of it to de
feat Linfield, 32 to 28, an unex
pected outcome Inasmuch as tne
Wildcats were classed as threats
for the Northwest conference title
this season.
Willamette's defense in the
first half was so tight that Un
fleld scored no field goals until
there were only five minutes left.
The Harrington, Llnfield's only
substitute to get a chance, poked
one la on a stool-pigeon play.
Neely, Wlldfcat ace threat, was
held to one field goal for the eve
ning. Meanwhile with Bill Lemmon
setting the pace and Erren Kloos
tra. right on his heels and. later
outdistancing him, the Bearcats
piled up a 12 to 3 lead; it was
18 to 8 before Linfield finally got
going but Henry Lever's boys
made it 16 to 11 by rallying right
at the close of the period.
In the second half the Wildcats
were still barred from the proxi
mity of the basket but Stewart
.with some help from Harrington,
Helser and Brostrom, fired at
long range and gradually cut
down the ten-point margin which
the Bearcats amassed early in the
period. With two minutes left,
Stewart looped a long one that
reduced Willamette a advantage
to two points. The "smoothies,"
their bag of tricks nearly exhaust
ed, pulled one more out as Lem
mon tossed the goal that made it
32 to 28.
In addition to battling a deter
mined and bruising Wildcat crew,
the Bearcats were the victims of
some weird decisions on the part
of Emil Piluso, usually capable
referee who had an off night. Wil
lamette drew just twice as many
fouls as Linfield, though the
Wildcats appeared to be at least
equally rough.

NATURALLY, ail big league
baseball managers are for
mer players, although at
least one Joe McCarthy never
reached big league caliber in his
playing days. But it is an unusual
fact that only one pitcher Walter
Johnson and one outfielder Max
Carey are now managing major
league teams. The rest of the pilots
are or were either catchers or in
fielders. Of the four new managers ap
pointed during the past winter,
three were catchers Mickey Coch
rane, Bob O'Farrell and Jimmy
Wilson. The other one, Bucky Har
ris, played the infield during his
active days.

Dallas stayed ahead all the way
but after leading 27 to 18 as the
last quarter started, saw that mar
gin dwindle to two points for
considerable period and one point
momentarily. Hamilton, a substi
tute, looped the hoop for the
points that gave Dallas a final

The most famous of the former
catchers to achieve managerial suc
cess is the grand old man of base
ball, Connie Mack. Indeed, Mack's
success may seem to support the
contention of those who claim that
catchers make the best managers,
because they are the only players
who have every play directly in
front of them, and because they call
the signals for the pitcher.
However, the name of" Mack
stands almost alone as an outstand
ing success in the list of catchers
who tried their hands at managing
big league teams. Billy Sullivan,
Bill Killifer, Roger Bresnahan and
Ray Schalk are a few ex-catchers
who failed to set the league on fire
Dazzy Vance
Marketed at
Waver Price
NEW YORK, Feb. .-tiPV-From
behind a barrage of several thous
and words of baseball gossip and
rumor today, as the National
league wound up its mid-winter
session, emerged the somewhat
poignant fact that Arthur
Dazxy" Vance, for seven succes
sive years of his prime the "fire
ball'' king, among pitchers, has
been sold to the Cincinnati club
by the St. Louis Cardinals at the
waiver price of 87500.
There was a time that would
have only been pin money for
the great dazzler himself. He re
ceived three times that much In
salary when he was the ace of
the Brooklyn pitching staff, with
a record of being the league's
leading pitcher four times, from
1924 to 1930, and the undisput
ed strkeout king of them all at
the height of his colorful career.
Now, nearing his 41st birthday
and after a major league record
that stretches back to 1915, Vance
has little of the old -smoke" left.
He was traded by Brooklyn to the
Cardinals last winter and saw lit
tle action la 1933, closing the sea
son with a record of six victories
and two defeats.

Cochet, who spent most of his
tennis career fighting Yankees.
But times have changed, and
with them opinions, and today M.

of all amateurs, foundation stone
of his nation's Davis Cup forces,
arrived here from South America
for his professional tour with Bill

"Most eertalnly," he said in
a liberal translation of his French

most of the American stars after

and his partner, either John Van
Ryn or Wilmer Allison. So there

formerly of Albany, in straight
falls, In the most orthodox of
three bouts.
The card last night was so
wild and woolly that the near
capacity crowd was standing
practically throughout the bouts.
One of the highlights of the card
was an Impromptu speech by
Bulldog Jackson, he of the derby
hat, toward the close of the en
tertainment. The fans who attended the
card, hoping to see Robin Reed
defeated again by Perkins, should
have bee . fully satisfied at the
outcome. Perkins hit Reed with
everything within reach, in
cluding the heavy eight foot
press table. He bounced the
heavy iron gong off the Reeds
port battler's head, cuffed him
about with an iron chair, and
twisted his neck In the ropes un
til he was black In the face. Per
kins won the first fall in 20:05
with a reverse figure 4 head

fall to Reed when the former
title claimant clamped on a toe
hold and hammerlock. Perkins
won tLe final round in 5:40.
Jackson, after being warned
by Referee Elliott, was disquali
fied in the first round of his
match with Jack Curtiss when
the fall was awarded to the New
Mexico grappler on a technical
ity. Bulldog made the decision
certain in the next round when
he kayoed Curtlss with a right to
the jaw, thereby dropping the
bout decision.
Jackson returned to the ring
side to watch the Reed-Perkins
scrap and after the first fall, got
into a tangle with Elliott. Elli

Here's tis February and the
state basketball , townament
starts Just six weeks from
today. It's always wise ta look
ins; ahead to this event to bear
firmly in mind that it is played
late In March, and not In Decem
ber, Jan nary, February nor even
the preceding March.
For Instance the Salem high
team through most of January
looked like a breeze and some
thought the tournament would be
spoiled by lack of competition for
the defending champions; where
as so far this month it has looked
as though Salem fans might stay
away from the big show to keep
from -witnessing their own dis
grace: and of course the situation
in March will be ideally some
where betwixt and between.
Several weeks ago It looked
as though Pendleton was going
to be the hot shot from eastern
Oregon and might come over
here and make spectators ont of
the Salem boys the first night;
Pendleton is still going strong
but we note that 3iacLoughlin

and there is no assurance now

sweep in four games against Uni

when . University of Washington

stering its Coast conference north
division lead.
The basketball lore of the Hus
kies was sufficient to quell a Web-
foot uprising that netted 19 points
at the end of the game. Both
teams were ragged, but Washing
ton was a bit more organized in
the pinches.
The Huskies led all the way,
though only by a one-point mar
gin at one time in the first half.
Their half-time lead was 18 to 12.
Ollnger scored a cripple at the
start of the second half, cutting
the Huskies' lead to two points.
Dick Merrin, substitute center who
tied up last night's contest, sank
another long shot at this Juncture
and Washington was away again.
The Webfoots were behind 35 tq
20 when they put on their fran
tic rally, which fell short of eras
ing the memory of Washington's
rally last night.
The rafter roamers of Lee
brought him high scoring honors,
with 14 points. His long shots were
unstoppable. Galer was held to
seven points.
