Remember Oregon's intersec

years back? That was the time
when Bobby Robinson and
Chuck Williams, colored aces,
had to be left home because of
race prejudice in the South.
They had plenty of company,
though, with Austin Colbert left
here because of grades, Bun
Stadleman and Johnny Kitzmil

ankles, and a few other mem
bers of the varsity off the
squad for minor reasons.

The weather was so hot in Flor

played minus jerseys; in other
words, with only shoulder pads to
protect their bodys from injury.
And to add insult to injury, the

bunting in honor of the visitors.

"Bill” Ingram picks California
to defeat Washington State’s for
midable football team here Sat
urday afternoon at Memorial sta
And thereby hangs a tale.
Not so long ago the favorite
pastime of football coaches was to
pick opposing teams to win, think
ing thereby to sneak up and knock
said opponents over with a sicken
But no more. The "new psychol
ogy” is to pick your own team to
First “Clipper” Smith selected
his Santa Clara team to turn back
California. And they did.
Then “Slip” Madigan predicted
some of the same for the Gallop
ing Gaels. “Slip” slipped a little
on that one, but at least a tie
score left him with still somewhat
of a reputation as a prophet.
Through all this Ingram, the
silent sailor, sat back and said
little or nothing except possibly,
to agree with "Clipper” and
But now comes “Babe” Holling
berry ,to add his word that Wash
ington State will defeat California.
Ingram, tired of agreeing with
everybody, is inclined to be argu
mentative on that point, and
comes out roundly with the state
ment that California, not Wash
ington State, will win.
Teams Complete Drills
This refreshing note in the
week’s news of Bear-Cougar hos
tilities was struck today as the
Golden Bears had virtually com
pleted their pre-game prepara
tions. Tngram bases his optimis
tic attitude on the showing made
by California in the 12-to-12 tie
with St. Mary's, the fact that all
through the season he and the
Bear squad have been looking
forward to the W. S. C. game as
the first for which they would
make thorough-going and specific
preparations, plus the fact that
the Bears have looked well during
the past week of light but exact
ing work on offense and defense
for the Cougar game.
The only possible fly in the Gol
den Bears’ ointment is lack of
adequate, trained, ready-to-play
reserve strength. The Bears are
well-equipped with material, but
minor injuries have retarded the
development of the squad as a
whole, although a number of in
dividuals, including the entire
first string, have made rapid
strides during the past 10 days or
two weeks. Ingram is satisfied
that his first team is his strong
est combination, but he is doubt
ful about many of the players
available for replacements.

satisfaction of an interest in the
culture of swine.
At last the dreadful truth be
came known. They found that the
student was making these visits
not in the interests of livestock,
but because the farm harbored a
lady light o' love, in whom he was
And so whenever the student
left on his venture to College Crest,
his hallmates would remark that
he was out seeing the pigs again.
Finally this term was applied to
any student who consistently
sought the attentions of a co-ed.
The phrase was shortened and
adapted to cover a phase of col
lege life about which Webster
seems slightly inadequate.
Little did the student realize
that in his trips to the farm he
was founding an Oregon institu
tion which 30 years later would
be the incentive for two thousand
males with durable lungs to rise
from their seats at a football game
and make the welkin ring with a
mighty roar of "Pigger-r-r-r” when
a student was discovered sitting
with a co-ed.

They believe, as is expressed in
Wall's statement, that the first

and lose sight of the lack of pro

The opinion is held that politi

should take full responsibility and
not only urge their constituents to

campaign methods that have re

was submitted by Herb King.
In it he proposed that the elec

the voter could have privacy while
marking his ballot. The election
in question was held in the lobby
of Johnson hall.
Student body officials replied
that class elections had always
been held in the corridor of either
Johnson or Villard hall and that
in the last two years has there
been any particular protest. The

more at the activity on the streets

Donut athletes will take a short
rest until Monday at which time
j they will again swing into action.
I So far, the S. P. E., Yeomen, Chi
Psi, Phi Psi, Fiji, and the Sigma
, Pi Tau outfits are still in the run
ning and each one is a contender.
! Monday’s list of events include
two meets between the Yeomen
and the S. P. E. teams at 4:00
o’clock and at 4:45 the Sigma Pi
Tau team will battle it out with
the Fijis for the privilege of en
I tering into the semi-final bracket.
At present the Phi Psi and the

als due to their wins in the Thurs
i day meets. Who the opponents
! to these two teams are to be will
be decided on Monday.

During this last week the out
standing star was the Fiji, Tom
Blankenberg, who cracked two all
time intramural records in one
meet. This Blankenberg, by the
way, holds quite a few records in
the breast-stroke. Blankenberg
was disqualified from the Olympic
team because he had previously
been a life guard and no athlete
receiving a remuneration in any
sport in the games was barred

Reissmuller, of Chi Psi, was also
an exceptional swimmer. He
proved this when he beat Ned
Simpson three times in succession.

The Sigma Pi Tau’s two big
point winners are Hegdahl and
Schenk. Hegdahl. the better of the
two, won two first places and also
i was on the winning relay team.
The Yeomen have no outstand

anced group of swimmers who
can take good care of themselves
in any meet.
Prominent among the stars of
the meets was Warmington, of

meet will take place on Thursday
