besides her “Colonel” title.
First Orchid
“I had just received my first

told me that I was the winner,”

rang the basketball often.
Scoring honors were divided
among Warren Taylor, the high
point gent who collected 13 dig
its, Roy Seeborg, sub forward
who bagged 12, and Roger Wiley
who rammed home 11 points.
The Idaho offensive attack wan
headed by the Vaunted Fred
Quinn and Bob Ryan, both of
whom tanked nine points. Quinn,
the northern division's leading
scorer, was obviously off hin
game, although he was held in
check fairly well by an Oregon

and a. second half shifting-zone
Williamson Sparks
Little Stan Williamson, who in
cidentally turned in a magnificent
floor game, sparking the fast
break attack down the pinewoods,
put the Ducks on the scoreboard
by turning in a free throw, ot'i
Fred Quinn’s foul. On the ex
change, aforementioned Quinn
planted himself in his favorite
spot on the boards, in the right,
hand corner of the Duck back
court. He took a pass from Jack
Ryan, and then cooled one
through the cords of the net to
shove the Vandals in front, 2-1.
But Warren Taylor sank a fol
low-shot following Rog Wiley V?

connected on a. lay-in. Captain
Kirsch popped one from short
center, smack in front cf the bas

Tiolpli Fubrman entered the
contest, arid with the Ducks
leading 11-10, he made connec
tions on a one-handed set-shot.
Two more free throws by the
varsity lads, and Borrevik’s set
shot from dead in front of the
hoop, hoisted the figures to 17

tion of the game, the play was
ragged, both clubs handling the
ball poorly and missing a flurry
of shots.
