Webfoots Let Up;
The old Igloo didn’t ring with
a great deal of activity Wednes
day, as the Webfoots were ta
pering their workouts down what
with the Washington series just
one day away. No scrimmage was
held, the majority of the time
being spent working on defense
and offensive plays.
Wren Looks uood
Plaudits were in order for sev

pressive in practice. Coach How
ard Hobson commended Bob
Wren, who appears to have re
gained his old stride and should
be used quite extensively against
the Huskies tomorrow night and
Saturday. Lloyd Jackson, War

Maynard all showed up well and

patched up again and primed for
action. Newland was top point

but due to illness has had little

Norm Dalthrop, hemp-swishing
guard, was considered perhaps
the best Washington shot. Bobby
Lindh, touted Husky forward, was
also tabbed by Hobby as a good
player, exceedingly fast.
The series should be a high

both teams specialize n that
type of attack. While the Hus

they cracked the Madison

Washington State’s Cougars,

that it has no intentions of re

even on the dreaded four game

Oregon’s victory over the
Cougars came as a surprise.

the series by a score of til to

and bounced WSC 18-88. Ore

The veteran frosh mentor announced that the team was not ready for
heavy competition, since they

Warren Not Satisfied
Warren is not too well pleased
with the work of the frosh cagers
