Swygard, Fuller, Hanson were sent back east with three defeats against them. Washington took the first ganne 41-38; the second, 27-24; the third, 38-32. Opening the Conference season, Oregon invaded and was repulsed, 43- 21, and 40-36. Idaho stopped at the pavilion on their Western swing, and took it on the nose, 4 1 -22, and 34-23. The hHuskies continued their un- broken string of victories on their first out-of-town trip to meet Oregon in a return series at Eugene, January 23-24. Washington made it a clean sweep in Eugene, winning 3 i -26 and 38-26. It remained for Oregon State Col- lege to prove the Huskies vulnerable.

C. stormed into Seattle for the return series. Hec ' s men sent them away humbled, taking the Oregonians 39-30, and 27-26.
