Lists Phi Delts On Top Leaque
By Cart Cluff
Intramural sports came back to
the University of Oregon campus
after a wartime layoff of several
years to assume its usual spot on
the campus spoils program dur
ing the winter term. Under the
direction of Paul R. Washke, di
rector of intramural sports, bas
ketball and handball topped the
term schedule.
The Greeks copped first place in
the casaba league when Phi Delta
Theta walked off with both the
“A” and “B” league titles. The
fraternity lads developed two
smooth-running ball clubs and es
tablished an unbeaten record for
the season.
Salstrom Paces
The Phi Dolt "A" team was
paced by former all-stater Eddie
Salstrom of Salem. The slick little
guard was the team’s high point
man for the season and also gar
nered a position on the Emerald
all-intramural team.
In winning their “A” league title
the Greeks won a close contest
fiom the independent Bums 24 to
18. The Bums, playing their second
game in as many days, were able
to rack up but three points in the
final quarter. Bad passing and poor
floor work contributed greatly to
the defeat suffered by the inde
The Phi Delt “Bees” grabbed the
junior division trophy with a 19 to
17 victory over the Alpha Tau
Omega Hilltoppers in the final
round of competition. A 15-15 score
at the completion of the regular
playing time put the game into a
three-minute overtime period.
Stevenson Shines
Jim Stevenson, Phi Delt center
was the hero of the game when he
whipped the ball out of the hands
of a Hilltopper and rushed the
length of the court to sink a lay

by two points with a minute and

The pencil-and-paper lads will

In a mid-week interview, Turn
bull commented: “Now that my
editing thesis is in, and my swol
len ankle normal, I can devote full
attention to this business of mak
ing with the points. This one is a
tough match for our boys. In view
of the tremendous odds, Fred Beck

boys to go on a strict diet of nec
tarine juice!” Beckwith, the other
half of the terrible twosome,”
declined to comment on the pros
pects of the casaba clash.
Meanwhile the Phi Delt camp
was a scene of frenzied action. It
was hoped that Ed Devaney’s Navy
leave would be extended a week,
but the former frosh star returned
to duty in the nick of time. Cagers
Abbey, Salstrom, Stevenson and
Hoff went through strenuous mid
week drills, that is, when they did
