very encouraging to the French fan.

trouble started when Pllnso,

rather close, walked np to Ed

all perfectly proper and
then, according to some En

Knowing Piluso's free and easy
manner on the court, we can't
see anything so damaging in
that. Most everybody in Oregon,
Including the Webfoot players,
has wanted Q?. jon State to win
this northern division champion
ship; that probably included
Piluso. That had nothing to do
with his judicial attitude while
on the court. We know from
personal experience '.hat it's pos
sible to take a whistle between
one's teeth ai d go out there,
hoping fervently one team will
win, and five the other team full
justice. The harder job is giv
ing the team you favor equal
justice. Most any official leans
backward in a case like that.

en the home, floor, and its third
defeat this season, tonight when
Salem high nosed out a 31 to So
victory here before a capacity
crowd in the Eugene Field gym
nasium. The Salem team was well
supported by rooters.
The defeat scarcely put any
crimp in Silverton's hopes for a
strong showing in the state
tournament, for the Foxes were
playing without the services of
Marx, regular guard, whose pres
ence would without much doubt
have accounted for at least the
necessary two points difference.
Marx i "on the shelf" with a

Silverton took what looked like
an overwhelming lead early In
the game, 11 to when the first
quarter ended and 17 to f at
Salem began cutting down the
margin as the second half open
ed and was only three points
behind, going into the final quar
ter. The pace was fast, but the
scores few in that last period,
and both players and spectators
were "on edge." Kelley, Salem
forward, was eliminated from the
game for allegedly "sasslng" the
referee, who was unpopular with
the Salem contingent throughout
In spite of the loss of Kelley,
the Salem team kept cutting
down Silverton's lead and went
one point to the good shortly
before the final gun.
Fourteen fouls were called on
Salem, eight on Silverton.
