The hitherto undefeated skating
basketball team from Corvallis will

and Corvallis defeated the same team
by a score pf 30 to 5. One may
naturally expect then, to see the two
victorious teams almost equally
matched, and they will doubtless put
up an excellent exhibition of skillful
skating and fast team work.
