Mentor Hobson saw his Green

The past week hasn’t been one
of remorse and melancholy sec

There was little time to consider
anything else but the Washing

Consequently a lot of valuable
practice-hours have been wiled
away under the giant steel gird

Blinding speed and shooting
perfection, a dose which the
Ducks received an overabundance
of this week in drills, is the for

tonight before the home town

Wednesday evening's drubbing'
the Oregon State Rooks dealt
them in Corvallis. This second

they returned with the scalps of

on their pennant.
Probably the biggest reason the

Yeomen Bees went into the
quarter finals of the intramural
basketball league when they sub
dued the Chi Psi quintet 33-12.
It was the winners’ third straight
victory and insured for them a
place in the playoff spot, their on
ly other game being a bye.
With Williams, Sabin and Speck
hitting the hoop from all angles
the independents came from be
hind to take a 16-3 bulge at half
time, their substitutes playing
most of the second half. The lodge
men could not seem to control the
ball off the backboards, this be
ing a major factor in then’ one
Sigma Nu pulled another close
game out of the fire by shading
a fighting Beta “B" crew 21-18.
Enjoying a halftime lead of five
points they suddenly lost control
of the ball game and the Betas
bounced back into the running on
ly to lose out at the last moment
on a foul shot and field goal, never
quite catching the snakemen.
Nu Mieule continued his scor
ing pace, canning 8 points, closely
followed by teammate Wright
with 6. Rathbun and Crawford
each made 6 apiece for the losers.
Other "B" league action found
Theta Chi turning on the heat to
subdue a fighting Fiji outfit 19-8
in a rough and rugged ball game.
It was a close battle until the last
moment when a flurry of hilltop
men baskets decided the outcome.
Gallagher of Theta Chi was high
point man making 8 points with
Treadgold of the Fijis leading his
team with four.
The Phi Delts, although hard
put by the Pi Kaps, took a close
8-6 victory to keep on the win
wagon. In a game that at times

resembled a football game, the
winners were able to overcome a
bad case of jitters to take the
game in a rousing second half
scrimmage. The losers held the
lead most of the way but seemed
unable to solve the stellar play of
substitute Wright who canned
four points in the last half to put
the game on ice.
Alpha Hall hurdled Sigma Hall
in the last game of the day in the
“B” battle of the independents,
13-5. Ahead all the way, mainly
through the efforts of McCallen
and Campbell they showed power
in annexing a. win.
A mix-up in the schedule caused
the DU-Sigma Hall “A” league
game to be called for tomorrow.
The game had been schedula*
