Baskets were a dime a dozen up Igloo way last night and Oregon
turned up with more dimes! Sixteen flying Dueks were thrown into
the fray by Bossman Hobson with all but two boys contributing to the
72 to 42 scoring rout over a scrappy but out-manned Camp Adair five.
After a brief but heated opening skirmish at which time the Tim
ber Wolves from Corvallis made it interesting, the Ducks pulled awf '
steadily heaping in more and more baskets.

Folioning the dopesters’ odds
to the limit, two of t ie favored
easaba outfits in the intramural
cage race emerged victorious yes
terday, the third pairing of teams
never transpiring as one of the
units failed to show.
The steam-rolling' Gamma hoys
continued on their winning' ways,
throwing' the blocks to a fight
ing Kappa Sigma "A” quintet,
18-13. The ball game was fairly
close throughout, hut the win
ners managed to stave off any
closing drives that the Kappa
Sigs had hoped to dream up.
The Sigma Nu-Alpha hall
clash never materialized as the
Alpha hall hoys neglected to put
in an appearance, so the White
Star team annexed the game via
the default route.
The third and final ball game
staged for yesterday found the
Phi Delt “B" quintet rolling over
an outclassed Canard club five
to the tune of 26-4.
Piling lip an early half-time
lead of 12-2 on the baskets of
Don Dyer and Jim Pryor, the Phi
Dells breezed through to an easy
win. It uas the fast-breaking
style of the winners that com
pletely dominated the game.
When safely out in front, the

SECOND UNIT MAN . . .
. . . A1 Popiek, guard on Oregon’s
neru diuwii, ouiuici ueuiei,
canned a foul toss and Forward
Waxman holed a shot from the
floor to set up the visitors with a
3 to 0 advantage when the game
was still “wet behind the ears.”
Then Ed Dick pumped one home
from the left and Captain Don
Kirsch potted a foul trial to tie
things up at the IV2 minute mark.
The Soldiers grabbed 7-5, 8-7, 10-9
leads as the wages of battle ding
At the five minute mark Ore
gon had crept ahead for keeps, 11
to 10, thanks to a lay-in by Dick
off a fast break.
Things began to calm down
just a trifle after that furious
start with the teams playing just
a little more deliberate and af- -v
tempting to set up some vestig "
With the first period half com
pleted it was Oregon, 16 to 12.
From thence forth the Webfoot
juggernaut started to roll with
the Ducks willing to trade one
basket for two on most occasions,
A1 Popick, Warren Taylor, Roy
Seeborg and Sam Crowell all help
ed the Oregon point cause with
the old run-run fast break setting
up baskets in three cases.
The first half wound up with
an identical hectic point flurry as
marked the opening of the period,
Brown and Frazer of Camp Adair,
tossed in left handers, while Tay
lor, Popick, and Crowell poured
through one apiece in the short
space of 1 y2 minutes. Mid-game
score was 34 to 20, a 14-point dif
ference, which, before the evenrv

A steady tattoo was hammered
on the hoop by the Oregons in
the second stanza with Rolph
Fuhrman throwing in one-hand

After seven minutes of unmer
ciful pounding, Hobby pulled
Fuhrman and Taylor, and waved
the boys to the shower room as
the Duck varsity was grinding on
all eight cylinders and their serv
ices were no longer needed. That
was with the score 46 to 25.
Not cooling down, and sparked
by Crowell and Seeborg, the Web
foots added more points. With
twelve minutes passed, Oregon’s
advantage had widened to 1 ^
points — 55-30, and the Soldiers"
were showing signs of weakening.
Hobby was clearing the bench
of Jris reserve troops and these
alternates were not only main
taining the same tempo, but at
times actually stepped it up sev
Bobby Reynolds hung one in
after glomming onto a Bob New
land pass coming from a fast
break. That raised the ante to
61-32. A minute later the decep
tive little Reynolds soloed down
floor again taking a pass from
Bob Wren over his- shoulder.
A Timber Wolf substitute, Ad

splurge of his own, rapping home
