Idaho Cagers Limp Into Oregon Camp
Plowed Under in Aggieville,
Vandals Out for Vengeance
r Sports Editor
Oregon s fourth-place Ducks take on the cellar-dwelling
Idaho Vandals tonight at 8 o’clock in the first of a two-game
series at McArthur court. The same two teams will meet
again tomorrow night. For the lemon and green Webfoots

place Washington Huskies. For the Idaho Vandals a win
will mean their first division victory of the 1947 season.

Ducks will take the floor as odds
on favorites to trounce the invad
ing Vandals, but the possibility of
an upset is not remote. ..The
Lemon and Green downed the
1946 ND champs twice at Moscow
earlier this year, but had a narrow
squeeze in the second contest,
winning 45-43.

their early season slump and pos
hly racking up a few wins be

The Beavers showed little mer
cy on the hapless Idaho five, how
