    The Emerald ♦
By Jack Burke ♦
,1- -,
Having nothing better to do the
other night we went to Corvallis
to watch what we thought would
be a slaughter of the innocents,
being that the Beaver team was
taking the California Aggies, who
Eire ialwaya regarded as somewhat
oi a setup.
Imagine our surprise when we
taw the proud Oregon Aggies held
scoreless at the half and held for
downs three times in the shadow
ot their goal by a team picked, we
found out after the game from our
old friend Crip Toomey, coach of
the California team, from a squad
rf 23, including 15 freshmen.
Also we got a kick out of watch
ing the California team call sig
nals as they used to do which is
not from a huddle, if you can re
member that far back. They were
the Andy Smith teams of years
ago all over again.
* * *
And now that we are on the sub
ject of the Oregon State team we
might just as well get something !
rise off our chest.
During the course of the same j
game already referred to, the Cor
vallis team drew over 100 yards in
penalties. We have Toomey as the
authority for this statement as we
didn’t keep track during the game.
However, we got the impression
that every other play at least they
drew a penalty for something or
other. In fact once or twice Sam
Dolan who was referee had to ex
plain the whys and wherefores.
It was too bad as the numerous
reserves of the Beaver team were
wearing down the slighter Califor
nians anyway, and it would seem
to us that such playing as they in
dulged in was hardly necessary.
We have a letter from Carroll
Eberhart, who not long ago played
basketball here, which indicates to
us that those who say Chicago is
a long way off and that this world
of ours is rather large, are crazy.
Carroll tells of standing up at
the Drake game when a band
played “Mighty Oregon.” He
thought he was the only Oregon
supporter in the stands but was
surprised when three ladies intro
duced themselves as Mrs. Kitzmil
ler, of Pennsylvania, Mrs. Gilbert
of Minnesota, and Mrs. Stoehr of
Medford, Oregon. These three wo
men, mothers of Oregon football
players, had all made the trip to
Chicago in order to watch their
sons perform under the arc lights
at Soldier’s field.
* * *
If anyone wants it there is a
good job on the predicting staff of
this department. We have given
up the job blit we feel sure that
you will admit that anyone in his
right mind would have picked U.
S. C., Stanford and St. Mary’s in
the last week-end games.
As far as that goes we are pleas
ed the way things turned out but
then no one. likes to be wrong
three out of three. Minnesota’s
holding Stanford as they did is one
of the biggest upsets of the year in
our opinion and the fact that Cali
fornia after their beating by the
Cougars can come back and beat
St. Mary’s makes them look good
to us. Also any one who wants to
bet against the Washington State
Cougars, see me please.

Idaho game next day and held it
around the Oregon band.
Returning to Portland on an eve
ning train, the boys played several
numbers over KGW before being
allowed to turn in. They were up

and gave the Portlanders a street
A special train brought them
back to Eugene Saturday after
noon, and they arrived just too
late for dinner. What a life!

The new campus phone book is

copies were printed. All numbers

Webfoot Scouts Bring Report That Phelan's Huskies Are Tough and Strong
Idaho Game
Shows Force I
Of Opponents
Merle Hufford Considered
As Surprise Threat
For Oregon
Spears Counts on Moeller
To Produce Power
For Ducks
Oregon football scouts, Dr. Clar
ence W. Spears, head coach, and
Bill Reinhart, backfield coach,
unanimously subscribed to the be
lief that the Webfoots will fight
their bitterest and toughest battle
of the season when they meet
Washington in the Multnomah
civic stadium Saturday.
Spears and Reinhart returned to
Eugene Sunday after seeing the
Huskies smash Idaho at Seattle,
27 to 0; and, comparing notes with
Jack O'Brien, end coach, who saw
Jimmy Phelan's team in a victory
against Montana, they declared
that Washington was a steep and
tough barricade that the Oregon
Ducks would have a hard time:
climbing over or breaking through.1
With the exception of U. C. L. i
A., Reinhart has scouted all Ore- j
gon's Pacific Coast rivals. He has
visited Oregon State, Washington,
Idaho, and St. Mary’s in major
contests, and maintains that the
Huskies are the most formidable
of them all. I
Washington Shows Strength
The most remarkable thing
about the victory against the Van
dals Saturday, according to Rein
hart, was Washington’s surprising
strength without Merle Hufford,
who is halfback and key man on
Phelan’s defense. He has been
kept out of all games thus far!
because of an injured hip, but it
is possible that he is being held j
as a surprise threat against Ore- J
Doc Spears wants to offset that
driving Husky power early. The
only manner in which he can be ■
sure of conquering the stunning
offensive of the Huskies is to de
velop a hard-hitting fullback to
tear the line to shreds.
Moeller Leads Attack
Upon the broad shoulders of big
Ed Moeller will rest the responsi
bility of shattering the Husky
front wall. Moeller is being given ‘
plenty of smacking work this
week; in fact he had plenty all
last week when he was sent diving
into the scrubs in stiff scrimmage
When the Webfoots and Huskies
get together, one of the two will
be eliminated from any chance to
cop the 1930 Pacific Coast confer
ence pennant. The Huskies have
hung up two victories, one each
over Montana and Idaho, while ]
Oregon has yet to make its first
attempt in conference competition.
The game’s a natural. It brings
together two undefeated teams;
and also two nationally known
coaches in Phelan and Spears.
The last time the pair met
Spears was at Minnesota and Phe
lan at Purdue. Spears won, 15 to
0, and Phelan hasn’t yet forgotten
that battering.
Don't let rain
run you
The dull fro6h, scrambling
around the campus like an egg
because it’s raining, can per
chance be forgiven. He just
doesn’t know. Let the lad
learn, from wiser men than
he, that a Fish Brand Slicker
will keep him dry, from be
hind his ears to his weak
ankles, and enable him to pre
serve any dignity he may
some day acquire.

injured to such an extent that it

‘Parlor Propagandists’ in
Popular Program
All the dirt and dope from the
four corners of the campus were
brought to light Sunday night
when “The Parlor Propagandists,”
with Art Potwin, Chet Knowlton,
and Bob Guild in the title roles,
got around the KORE microphone
for the first time and related so
cial happenings on the University
of Oregon campus with much
gusto and vivid description.
This little act, prepared by Bob
Guild, was the feature of the eve
ning. But there were many other
highlights in this second “Oregon
Daily Emerald of the Air” broad
cast. Prominent on the program
was the double piano act given by
Con Hammond and ^Johnny Smed

her debut at the recent “Hello"
dance, sang songs with syncopa-'
One of last year's favorites, Bob
Goodrich, brought his guitar to the 5
studio and crooned pleasingly.
Outstanding among the numbers,
rendered by the Theta trio was
“Tea for Two." Beth Ann John
son, Georgia Miller, and Nancy
Taylor were the three girls. A
medley of popular tunes was given
on the piano by Bud Nicklaus.
Although handicapped by studio
facilities, Louise Marvin tapped
out some pleasing dance numbers
with Jane Holt at the piano.

While the first stringers were
gaining real grid experience in
their varsity encounter, two other
squads were fiercely battling on
the outside of the field under the
direction of Bernie Hughes and

varsity-frosh tussle, more than one
man was laid low with a bloody
nose or merely knocked out. Ac

Swimming Squad
Will Start Work
Soon, Says Hewitt
Barnstorming Tour Will
Be Sought for
"The varsity and freshman
swimming and water polo squads
will start intensive practice in two
weeks," according to Jack Hewitt,
athletic director. He also states
that there will be a meeting of all
swimmers in the near future on a
date to be announced later.
As yet there is no definite sched
ule worked out for swimming
meets, as it is extremely hard to
get swimming meets with other
schools because of the small finan
cial returns. Mr. Hewitt expresses
the hope that the University will
have a new swimming tank in the
near future with sufficient seating
capacity for spectators.
Tour Planned
The swimming coaches and in
structors are very anxious to have
a barnstorming tour scheduled.
Mr. Hewitt states that 50 letters
have been sent to other schools to
secure dates for swimming meets.
As yet few returns have been re
Hugh E. Rosson, graduate man
ager, is attempting arrangements
with the University of California,
Stanford, O. S. C., Multnomah
Athletic duo of Portland, and the
Olympic club of San Francisco for
a swimming conference among
these organizations. If such a con
ference cannot be arranged, an at
tempt will be made for a North
western conference with the Uni
versity of Washington and Idaho.

Both varsity and frosh swim
