Co-Sports Editor, The Emerald
Tall, dark-thatched Chuck Gilmur, Washington’s cool am?
collected center, went on a scoring rampage in the second half
to pace the Huskies in a sensational drive which shot them
ahead of Oregon at the Igloo last night, 52 to 48. Up to that time
our Ducks had things pretty well in hand and it appeared that
Oregon could repulse the Washington advances and retain its
> grasp on the northern division league lead.

It was a sad talc indeed insofa',
as Oregon was concerned. Hob

the opening jump when Bob
Newland flipped in a two-hander
from the right. Nip-and-tuck

to 16, when Rolph Fuhrman
bagged two charity tosses with
nine minutes left in the half.
The Webfoots pumped that
slim advantage up to six points
at halftime, 31 to 25. Oregon fans;
seemed confident that, although
the second half wouldn't be any
"easy pickings,” Hob’s boys would
be able to keep one step ahead' of
the driving, relentless Huskies.
Then Mr. Gilmur went to work
in a basket-making sort of way,
with his teammates rallying be
hind him in brilliant fashion. He
pumped in no less than six field
goals, which plus his first half
work, netted him 20 counters
high for the evening.
With the second half 13 min- •
utes old, the Huskies finally
nudged out the Ducks to grab
the lead firmly between then
fangs. Gilmur tossed in his third
one of the period and' the scorn
stood 41 to 41, Washington.
From then on the students of

the ball as Oregon desperately
tried to gain control of the spher
