Webfoots Clash with Huskies Tonight
To Open Two-Game Cage Series Here
Tonight’s the night for Oregon and Washington. The loser
of this all-important Northern Division game can say goodbye
to any last fleeting hopes of winning the loop crown, and can
relegate themselves to a trouble-maker role foi the remaining
quints in the race.
Gametime is at 8 p. m. at McArthur Court
Both teams will be in top shape for the crucial clash, and also
for the one tomorrow night. A sweep for either fise would give
them a bid advantage for the rest of the way, but the loser will
be struggling to stay out of the cellar.
Duck Lineup Set
John Warren is planning to open with his regular lineup of
Will Urban and Jim Bartelt, forwards; Roger Wiley, center;
Paul Sowers and Johnny Neeley, guards. Four of Art McLan
ey's starters are set, with the fifth probably going to Louie So
riano, through veteran Andy Opacich may get the call.
The others will be Bill Vandenburgh and LaDon Henson at
forwards, Jim Mallory at center, and flashy Sammy White at

Frosh Hoopmen Drop
41-38 Contest to OSC
The Oregon State Rooks did it again, and again by the skin
of their teeth, as they nudged the Oregon Frosh, 41-38, last night
at McArthur court.

utes left in the ball game, fired shots from all over the floor and

one-hander from the key with 45
seconds remaining. Paul Valenti’s
boys froze the ball until the gun
sounded, giving them their second
thrill-filled win as many starts
against the frosh.
Locals Take Lead
The Ducklings opened the game
with a fast-break type offense,
which, although marred by erratic
ball-handling by both squads, sent
them into an early 10-7 lead.
Thereupon Don White, fine Kook
guard, who was a bundle of trouble
for the Duckling's all evening, scor

free throw to give his mates a lead

The 6-foot 3-inch junior is rated by John Warren, V ebfoot
mentor, as the best actor and showman on the Coast, and he
says, “White will put on a good act, and turn in at least one
spectacular play before the night’s over.”
Vandenburgh A ‘Sleeper’
Yandenburgh, the Husky captain, is almost the opposite.
Called by many sportswriters the “most underrated player on
the Coast,” Vandy racks up the points, (he paces Washington in
scoring) and works well on the boards, but rarely gets noticed.
Henson, Vandenburgh’s running mate at forward, is much
the same way but lacks his teammate’s aggressiveness under the
He is 6-foot, 4-inches in height, about an inch under Vandy.
