By EHLE REBER
The Sigma Chis and Fijis reign over the wrestling season with two
men in the undefeated class. Sig Eps, Sigma Nus, Canard club, and
ATOs finished the rounds with one championship each.
Barr Palmer, ATO, pinned Gilman Danielaon, ATO, in 33 seconds
to win the 126-pound championship. Palmer had little trouble 'in
throwing his less experienced opponent.
Jim Selder, Sigma Nu, is undisputed champion of the 118-pound
division having no one to challenge •-■
him in that class.
Larkin Beats Crymes
In the 135-pound class, Dick
Larkin, Fiji, decisioned Gordon
Crymcs, Canard club, in one of
the toughest matches of the day,
to come out champion of his class.
John Valleau, Canard club and
last year’s champ in the 145-pound
class, successfully defended his
title by a default from Bob Vad
nais, Phi Delt. The match was go
ing only a few minutes v/hen Vad
nais injured his leg on the ropes
and was forced to concede the
match. He was unable to continue
Elmer Hanson, Sweetheart, deci
sioned Berger Rorvick, Sigma Nil,
for the 165-pound title. Rorvick
started out strong, but in the last
few minutes Hanson turned on the
heat to gain the slight advantage.
Dick Hutchison, Fiji, won a hard
fought decision from Ken Leather
man, Yeomen, in yesterday’s 155
pound title match.
Bill Hawke, Sigma Chi, won a
decision over the favored Dick
Russell, Sig Ep, to take the cham
pionship in the 175-pound devision.
Hawke fought a last minute rally
to come out on top.
In the heavyweight class, Del
Bjork, Sig Ep, won a decision over
Joe Devers, Phi Delt. The first two
[ minutes of the match were even,
but Bjork’s superior weight and
strength finally won out.
Co-op Girls Capture
The undefeated Women's Co-op
scored a sweeping victory over Al
pha Delta Pi, 33-18, in the cham
pionship game in women's basket
ball Tuesday afternoon. The Co-op

By virtue of double champion

place in the quest for the intra

first semester leaders, Phi Delta

handball championship to their

The ATOs, who hold the B vol

points to their first term total of
373 for a total to date of 643. The

total and defend his second place

Hobson's sky-scraping center leads
Hooper by five points, but the
driving Cougar guard has two
more games to play, both against
Washington next weekend, while
Slim Urgel has only one regular
season contest left.
Hooper who measures only about
six feet in comparison to the six
foot-eight frame boasted by Win
termute, served notice Monday
night that he was out to pocket
the honors by potting 13 points
against Idaho, a club which is
rated a good defensive outfit.

He hopes to score even more
against Washington, a team which
depends mostly on being able to
outscore the other fellow.
Wintermute never faltered
against Oregon State Saturday,
keeping pace with 14 points, and
this weekend he will be out to
bucket even more in order to free
himself from the Hooper menace.
“Whirl-’em-in" Laddie Gale col
lected 25 points Saturday to bring
his scoring record to 243 points
with one game of the 20-game sea
son still in front of him. His ob
jective Saturday night will be to
add enough points to make his
record safe for years to come.
Gale Leads Field
Gale leads in three departments
of the scoring with an average of
12.8 points per game, 80 field goals
