Vie for Position
When the Oregon Webfoots meet
the Idaho Vandals at the Igloo
next Monday and Tuesday nights
it will be a grand slam battle be
tween the two teams for second
place in the league standings. The
two teams are now tied, and if
either team wine both games it
will leave that squad in full pos
session of second place.
In the two tilts already marked
off by the. teams, Oregon has won
both; the first was an overtime
game and the final score was 50 to
41. In the second game the Web
foots ran around the Vandals win
ning a 78 to 42 victory.
From these indications it would
seem that the Webfoots are cap
able of turning back the Vandals;
but Idaho has two wins to its cred
it over Washington State, and they
defeated the Ducks once as against
one loss. Game time will be 8
