Thumbs Down on Grid Fights
TJIVALRY can be made into a destructive force which drives
two student bodies at each other’s throats at the slightest
pretext, or it, may be of a more friendly sort which promotes
good feeling and is beneficial to both rivals.
Because of recent raids and depredations on the Oregon
State campus and the blasting of the the feeling of rivalry
between Oregon men and the Beavers has reached a high pitch,
alinosl a dangerous pitch.
The evenly-matched teams, the indecisiveness of the final
score, all lend a few matchsticks to the final big pile of rivalry
tinder which may be touched off by some carelessly thrown
cigarette or thoughtless act.
In the interests of good sportsmanship and the fitness of
things, the Emerald is making a plea that there be no untoward
actions following the game today, No matter which team wins,
the opposing rooters are expected to In* tin* best kind of sports.
Last year Oregon at Corvallis showed its true self when it
refrained exhuberations of a destructive sort after its mighty
gridiron machine had trampled the Beavers in an unexpected
It is not too much to ask the same sort of treatment from
the visitors from Oregon State college this afternoon should
they happen to he victors. But victors or losers, the Lemon
Yellow and (ireen rooting section can lie counted on to “take
it” gracefully, the Emerald believes.
"With thousands of visitors and alumni from all over the
Northwest in attendance at today’s battle of the century, it is
the duty of the undergraduate bodies to show them that uni
versity and college students are pot to be classed with street
fighters and brawlers.
Football Plays Weird
'I 'HERE'S nothing new under the sun. dust yesterday we
» were reading about the‘‘scrambled egg" football formation
being put into use by Coach Lou Little at (ieorgetown.
After the huddle the linemen wander about aimlessly until
at a given signal they suddenly jump to allotted places and put
their play underway before the opposition can shift to meet
Sort of like Hit' movies of dynamiting a cliff, run through
backward. Creak formations like that are not new in football.
Several years ago a high school coach in southern Oregon lined
It is men up on a diagonal, stringing them out with the center
on one end of the line and the rest of the team about three
yards apart strung across the field.
The ball was passed down the line like fraternity men on a
woodpile party. On the other end of the long string was the
ball-carrier. When the pigskin reached him he fell in behind
his interference and ran for a touchdown (theoretically).
The play was designed to surprise the defense just once and
leave them at a loss as to how to line up against it. just as
the “scrambled egg" formation is supposed to befuddle the
College football is becoming more and more a game to mys
tify the other team with trick plays and formations.
Last night’s noise parade proved beyond a doubt that the
ordinary citizen’s ear drums can stand much more punishment
than medical persons prescribe.

a center weighing L’ti? pounds and wearing triple A shoes. We
keep our mastodons in museums.
