Washington State’s Cougar
cagers, whom Oregon faces next
week in Pullman, received a
boost for the northern division
hoop race when Jack Friel’s men
conquered Bradley Tech last week

In Closing Minutes
By FRED TREADGOLD
Co-Sports Editor, The Emerald
Oregon's dashing Ducks took a firmer hold on the steering wheel
of the victory wagon Wednesday eve when they aced out Willamette’s
small but fiery Bearcats on the Igloo maple boards, 36 to 33, in one of
their last tune-up games before plunging into the northern division
slate. It was a case of the Webfoots seizing a small lead, pumping
it up twelve points, and then coasting in while the frantic Salemites
tried to close the gap with a desperate spurt. ' J

“Go west young man, go west.” Those were the silver words of
wisdom coming from the tongue of the ancient sage, Horace Greeley.
He denoted a land of opportunity and fortune.
Oregon’s VVebfoots will be traveling come Saturday, seeking a
land of opportunity and fortune, only they will forsake that dog-eared
westwardly direction for one to the northeast. For over the hills and
dales of the famed Palouse coun

Roger (Big Boy) Wiley, Ore

chief point-capturer for the win

substitute Bearcat forward, Rags
dale, slight of stature, who topped
all on the floor with 10. Bearcat
Ragsdale was the main cog in the
Willamette machine which staged
the futile rally in the dying min

at 2-all with a lay-in. Things
see-sawed for a spell, with Wil

10-10, before the “Spec” Keene’s
gang dropped behind for good.
Big Wiley holed out a running
shot from the key, Bob Newland
snapped in a set howitzer from
mid floor, Warren Taylor bagged
a lay-in on a follow-up shot, and
Kirsch canned a gift toss to force
Hobby’s boys ahead 17 to 10.

clan, creased the hemp to bring
the score to 23 to 17, Oregon, at
the mid-game rest period.
A spin shot from the kay by
stripling Wiley and two Wren-ba^y
kets zoomed the Ducks total

side of Willamette. That was Ore
