SAE Plays Yeomen Today
For Privilege of Being
Other Finalist
4 P. M.
S. A. E. vs. Yeomen
The ATO quintet battled their
way into the finals of the intra
mural hoop tourney playoff yes
terday, and the S. A. E. squad
succeeded in winning the right to
play the Yeomen to decide the
other finalist.
A. T. O. upset S. A. M. in a close
battle and knocked the Sammies,
who were favored to win, out of
the title chase by a score of 14 to
12. S. A. E. trounced the Beta
squad, 29 to 9 and demonstrated
to the railbirds why they are the
favorites to cop the donut crown.
In the S. A. M.-A. T. O. contest,
the victors started out with a bang
and scored five counters before
their bewildered opponents could
come to. Don McKim, A. T. O.
forward, ran wild in the first
quarter to score six points and help
his team take a commanding lead
of 8 to 3 at the finish of the pe
The A. T. O. team increased its
lead at the end of the half to take
an advantage of 11 to 5. The Sam
mies got busy in the third session
and scored six counters while hold
ing their foes to a single tally.
As soon as the last period com
menced, Les Goldschmidt put in a
Sammie foul shot to tie the knot
at a 12-12 count. With the teams
battling to get hold of the ball,
Bill Lake put a long A. T. O. bas
ket into the hemp two minutes be
fore the game ended. The Sammies
had three opportunities to tie the
score and take the lead, but they
all went astray.
The S. A. E.-Beta game was
just too much S. A. E. With the
Hansen brothers, Paul Bale, Jack
Robertson, and Dick Walton mak
ing good all kinds of shots, the vic
tors outclassed the Beta quintet.
Walton commenced the scoring
festivities by sinking a basket
from the foul line, and the S. A.
E.’s took a lead of 5 to 1 at the
end of the first quarter. They in
creased it to 14 to 3 at’the com
pletion of the half and went into
the last period leading 22 to 9.
Ted Hansen, S. A. E. tipoff man,
contributed a beautiful shot to the
victors’ cause in the second quar

The first copy to come to the

Slip Madigan
i g a n announced
that his Gael out
fit would be pre
pared for the
Oregon invaders
when they take
the field in Kezar
s t a dium Thurs
day morning in
their annual
rhank s g i v i n g
battle. Last year,
the southern
team barely managed to eke out
a spare 7-6 victory over the Web
feet and Dr. Spears is on edge to
get back this margin and also end
up the present season with a win.
This late in the season a victory
for the Oregon team would mean
all the difference in the World be
tween a just fair team and a team
that ranks at the top with the
best of them. To take St. Mary’s
into line would mean that Oregon
breaks 2 to 1 against California
teams while a loss puts the per
centage just the other way.
Injured List Vacant
Since their defeat at the hands
of U. C. L. A., the Gaels have been
in intensive practice for their com
ing two tilts with Southern Meth
odist and the University of Ore
gon, and, notwithstanding their
two setbacks by the Olympic club
and the Bruins, they will be at
top form for the Webfeet. Madi
*> —
gan has learned his sad lesson of
putting only four days between
two hard games—by losing both
of them through the loss of a good
part of his regular squad playing
the game from the sidelines due
to injuries. This week there are
no injuries to mar St. Mary’s
chances. The much-needed rest in
the middle of a tough schedule
has worked wonders with the Mo
raga outfit and the “Four Horse
men” backfield of Beasley, Ahern,
Brovelli, and Toscani, of all-Amer
ican reputation, will again be seen
in action at full strength.
(Special to the Emerald.)—Fresh
from a 13-to-6 victory over U. C.
L. A. last Saturday in Los An
geles, Coach Clarence W. Spears
and a squad of 33 Webfeet pulled
into town yesterday. Soon after
arriving, they left for a secluded
spot south of here, where they
will remain until Thursday morn
ing, when they meet the Galloping
Gaels of St. Mary’s in the Kezar
stadium here.

twice before the St. Mary’s con
test. The Thanksgiving day game
is scheduled to start in the morn
ing in order to give spectators an
early start for a turkey dinner.
Dr. Spears is confident that the
Webfeet can keep up their string
of impressive showings with a
creditable display at San Fran
cisco, although the genial Web
foot mentor is his usual gloomy
self when discussing the possibili
ties of a certain victory. In an
interview before he left Eugene,
Spears gave the Gaels credit as
having one of the best teams on
the Coast and in a position to give
a good account of themselves
against any kind of competition.
Oregon Improves
Since their early-season defeat
of the Trojans, St. Mary's has been
one of the primary “points” of the
Oregon team and Thursday’s game
will no doubt see a repetition of
the stirring exhibition of football
that these two teams put out here
last year. If anything, St. Mary’s
has the edge due to the experience
of their material and a not-to-be-!
forgotten victory over the Univer
sity of Southern California which,
due to the Trojans’ showing last
Saturday, is quite a feather in the
cap of the Moraga boys. Never-,
theless, football at its best is un- j
certain and, with the immense im-j
provement shown by Oregon, last
Saturday, in comparison with the
first time the Northerners were
down there, would show that the
Gaels have struck a -tartar.

======= with Walt Baker —
HE national interest and the unexpected result of
the Notre Dame-University of Southern California
game last Saturday stole a little thunder from the
Oregon-U. C. L. A. fracas in Los Angeles on the
same afternoon. Such is not to be greatly won
dered at because of the previous outcome of the
Trojan-Webfeet battle—the most clastic result was
the small gate of only 15,000 fans that turned out
to see the game.
But nevertheless, Doc Spears and the boys
walked away from there with much of the lost re*
spect and reputation that they left behind the first time. It isn’t
every team that can come back in the same city in the same season
in the manner in which the Oregon squad demonstrated. And the
final test of the complete ability of the Ducks to take their beatings
in the ordinary course of a season will be the St. Mary’s game day
after tomorrow- the third real battle in 12 days. Can they take St.
Mary’s? This is the question that the fans from that part of the
country as well as those in the North are asking the dopesters.
You can’t figure football. St. Mary’s beats U. S. C. and yet loses
to the Bruins. U. C. L. A. loses to U. S. C. and yet beats St. Mary’s.
Oregon turns the trick on the Bruins so what will the Webfeet do
to the Moraga Marauders-or vice versa? One way to figure it is
; that the Gaels are 6 points better than S. C„ who is 53 points better
than Oregon—result: St. Mary’s 59, Oregon 0. That’s a pretty steep
figure for anyone to bank on, so here’s another one. U. S. C. and
U. C. L. A. are having their own little fisticuffs over athletic relations
and so they refuse Los Angeles the treat of seeing the two teams on
the field at the same time. No comparison that way, but the Trojans
took Oregon State 30-0 and the Webfeet played them to a scoreless
tie, and, figuring in the St. Mary’s apparent 6-point advantage over
S. C., the Gaels are only 36 points better than Oregon.
Both of these comparative figures appear out of proportion to the
distributed strength of the two teams. So while we seem to be in
the prediction business, and since we only missed last Saturday’s
figure by 7 points, it appears to our no doubt biased eyes that Oregon
j is just 6 points better than the Gaels.
This may be biting off just a little bit more than we can chew,
but from the looks of comparative performance, she stands as is.
Make no mistake, this St. Mary's team has lots of fire and still has
enough left in the bag of tricks to put up stiff competition for anyone
—but along comes Oregon. The “inexperienced” team that started out
the season under such a handicap is no longer in the greenhorn class.
Seven top-notch games since the start of the season have put on the
finishing touches to a real football machine that can stand up with
the best of them and give a good account of itself. Although we
have the highest respect for anyone that can do in the Trojans, still
this early-season victory and the disadvantage that it lays to Oregon,
is more apt to be overridden by this time.
1 From comparative scores of the U. C. L. A. games of the two
schools, the Webfeet are exactly 19 points better than the Gaels—
and here is another prognostication that seems to be at odds with the
- rest of them. Whatever the pre-game dope that anyone in general
j cares to hand out between now and Thursday afternoon, neither one’s
a set-up for the other. Providing Oregon wins, the Webfeet are going
'1 to have plenty to be thankful for—a whole football season.
