A pair of wild-eyed, victory-minded V ebfoot guards, Reed}'
Berg and Bob Lave}', pulled the Oregon basketball team from
the doldrums last night to spark a 43-41 victory over the Idaho
\ mdals at .McArthur court. A crowd of 6000 was on hand to
witness the proceedings.
'Baking the lead from the opening whistle, the Moscow in
v.ders took advantage of the Ducks' sluggishness to trot off
at intermission with a 27-20 bulge. Oregon wasn’t hitting either
from the floor or gift line. The Vandals, playing a deliberate

Iluskv Jim Bartelt broke a scoring slump with a beautiful
one-handed hoister from the corner to cut the Idaho lead to
34-33. Preston Brimhall, flashy Vandal guard, tossed in a char

running, breaking through for sev
Salem fought their way back in
the second quarter to bring the
half-time score to 25-14, Frosh.

his right hand, hit for seven mark
ers in the first half to keep Salem
in the running.
After the intermission, the Little ’
Ducks poured on the steam for a J
38-24 third-quarter edge, and |
dunked in 15 points in the final pe-,
Carlos Houck, a clever ball-1
handler and a good shot, was high J
