Orr Paces State
With 31 Pionts;
Hunt Tallies 14
CORVALLIS. Jan. 21—If 31
points in a single game is a rec
ord for a Frosh-Rook contest,
pin a rose on Jackie Orr of
Grants Pass.
The Oregon State, yearling
threw in that many points in
the opening “little civil war” battle
Friday night here and led his team
mates to a 54-49 victory over Don
Kirsch’s Ducklings.
The former southern Oregon
prep star hit from every angle.
He had 17 points at the half and
threw in 14 more for good meas
ure in the final half. Had Orr been
out of the game, or having only
an average night, the Frosh
might have won.
The other star, Bob Edwards who
led the Corvallis Spartons to the
state high school championship last
season, was held scoreless, and Ken
Hunt finally came up to his scoring
capabilities. Hunt, a two-time all
stater from Marshfield high school,
netted 14 points and directed the
Oregon floor game. His total was
high for the Ducklings.
The last time Kirseh’s club was
in the game was when the score
j was tied at 12-all. It was then that
Orr began his scoring spree, and
the Frosh couldn't stop him. trail
ing 32-19 at the half.
In the closing minutes of the
game the Ducklings rallied, but the
gap was too big to fill, and the
Rooks stalled effectively.

Now It's Snow Golf
VANCOUVER, Wash., (AP) —
The Royal Oaks country club yes
terday had scheduled a golf game,
and the players weren't going to let
snow stop them.
Four men played over two inches
of snow and managed to finish 11
holes. They changed the rules a bit,
though; If a player got within a
club’s length of the nearest tree to
the green, he'd finished the hole.

once leading 21-13. A cluster of
baskets just before the gun pulled
Oregon to within two points of a '

utes after the start of the second
period to put the Webfoots in front
29-27 and they held a narrow lead .
for the next six minutes. Sammy
White, who counted only two buck
ets all evening, got one of them '
when Washington needed it to knot
the tally at 35-all.

Wiley tossed in a pair to put Oregon .
in front again and that’s when

batic layin to give his team a 43-41
advantage and the Huskies^couldn’t
be headed.
