fllCIP AT FIRST
By Meredith Wood worth
CALDWELL, Ida.. Feb. 13
(Special) The Willamette uni
versity Bearcats celebrated Lin
coln's birthday here today by
trouncing the College of Idaho
coyotes, 43 to 22. in a fast, but
rough northwest conference tilt.
The visitors led all the way.
The small floor with concrete
walls close to the side lines proved
a handicap at the start, for Coach
"Spec" Keene was loath to send
his men rushing down the floor
when they might crash against
the concrete and fce braised, but
Cardinal, Adams, and Hauk were
particularly good at long distance
shooting, and at nair time had
run up a substantial lead.
Several fouls were called on
both teams. Four players went
out on personals in the second
frame. They were Cardinal and
Flesher for Willamette, and Keis
ter and Dllley for Idaho.
Cardinal, tall , and husky Wil
lamette center, led his team in
scoring, with 13 points? but all
the Bearcats got points except
Minto and Ledbetter who went in
-as substitutes In the last minutes.
J The two teams play at Ontario.
Ore., tomorrow night in the second
game of the northwest conference
