Dobie has unearthed a quarterback
from Tacoma, “Ching” Johnson by
name, who is proving a worthy successor
to Smith nnd “Bud” Young. Built low to
the ground, he can push and pull his way
along with tacklers all around him. At
running back punts, the Seattle papers
say, he resembles “Ans” Cornell, being
at his best in a broken field.

to penetrate the Oregon defense for
gains when the yardage meant touch
downs. At no time during the game were
Dobie's men inside Oregon’s 25-yard line.
Washington started her scoring in the
first five minutes of the first, quarter.
Smith, quarterback on Dobie’s team, ne
gotiated a field goal from the 30-yard
line after a heartbreaking march down
the field. The final score was hung up
in the third quarter when Hunt, Wash
ington end, received a forward pass from
a fake punt formation and raced 30 yards
for a touchdown. Smith kicked goal. Only
once more during the game was the Ore
gon goal in danger of further violation.
In the third quarter a Washington back
recovered a fumble and had pranced 35
yards before he was downed from be
hind by an Oregon tackier.
The stars of the battle were I’arsons
end Beckett for the Oregonians and
Shiel, Miller and Hunt for the Seattle
warriors. Johnny Beckett, this year’s
captain, was playing his second year at
tackle for the varsity and consistently
outpunted the toe artist of the northern
institution. Parskms, the man evidently
much feared this year by Dobie’s crew,
was a consistent ground gainer, and a
constant terror to the opposing for

Although the game was a victory for
the purple and gold, the score does not
show the real strength of the Oregon
team. Both Cook, who played at guard,
and Beckett had just recovered from
sickness. Malarkey, star halfback, was
out of the game and “Anse” Cornell was
only in the game a few minutes before
he was carried from the field with a
badly sprained knee.
Last season witnessed no game be
tween the two institutions and this
year’s contest marks the nrst chance for
Oregon to avenge her defeat.
Three years ago, on Multnomah field,
in Portland, the teams fought a wonder
ful 10-7 battle, in which Charley Smith,
then untried, and acting for Bud Young,
who had been injured, was the Washing
ton idol. Wayne Sutton had scored the
first Washington touchdown on a for
ward pass, and Parsons had come back
with a terrific line buck that carried him
past the forwards and allowed him to
evade the secondary men and wriggle
his way to the tying score. In the last
few moments of the game, unable to get
the ball closer than within twenty yards
of the goal, Smith dropped back, and,
with infinite preparations, booted the
ball between the posts for the winning
tally of the game. It was truly a battle
of giants, with the mighty toe of Fenton,
offsetting the gains that AVashington
was able to make on line plunging.

of the downpour in that they have a
heavier team and depend more on
straight line plunging to advance the
leather. Both elevens use the direct pass
system from the center to the back
field which will make accurate handling
of the ball a real problem. With weather
conditions as they are a fumbled punt
or a misdirected forward pass may mean
a victory for either school.
Washington money has ajreay found
its way to the local cigar stores. The
Seattle supporters are betting even
money that Dobie’s men will win, and
are offering odds of 5 to 3 that Oregon

ever is well supplied with subs, having

Bezdek has done little more than
round off the team’s play the last few

nights the entire practice was devoted to

Jimmy Sheehy, chairman of the com

reports great success, for the majority
of the stores are closing during the game
in order to let their employees attend.
All students and alumni are invited to
the dance in the armory which will be
given for the alumni under the auspices
of the junior class, says Joe Hedges,
chairman of the dance committee. A reg

will be held in the armory between 7:30
and 8:30 p. m. under the auspices of the
