the poor taste incorporated in this
sing-song jibe, falling from the
lips of half a thousand Oregon stu
dents . . . Penalties, many of them,
were called against the Rookling
visitors. Each toot of the umpire’s
fog horn was met with a deathly
silence as the officials conferred.
Then came a roar of tremendous
approbation. The little figure in
white was forcing the Staters back,
five, ten, fifteen yards . . . Boy,
what a play! What infinite in
nards! . . . No, members of the
student body, there is nothing to
applaud in the calling of a penalty.
There was nothing funny about
the “Mercer the farmer” business.

It looked like the open season
on Oregon safety men when that
black wall of Rooks swept down
the field toward Anet and Nichol
son under each punt. The poor
ness of the Frosh blocking gave
the visiting ends and tackles time
to arrive and draw straws to de
termine who should "bust” the ill
fated kick receiver.
"Ohs” and “Ahs” of surprise
came from the seatbenders when
Halfback Tom Blackman appar

handed pass to Nicholson after he
had previously thrown and com
pleted several with the right flip

able ambidexterity was blasted
when word came from the sideline
that the southpaw slants were
those of John Yerby, right end,
who was called back especially for
heaving festivities . . . The play of
the evening was, among other
classifications, daring (to say the
least) with the Frosh electing to
run the ball twice on the fourth
down, when they had barely pene
trated the enemy’s territory and
the Rooks selecting a like bit of
rashness on one occasion . . . The
Ducklings’ tackling was hard and
accurate as you could ask for . . .
Ben Ell shuttled about for all the
world like a huge, fast moving
crab when he was taking the ball
places, which last act he did with
sickening frequency.

The Football Team
That Wouldn't Quit
Last Saturday afternoon in the
Los Angeles Coliseum, 34,000 foot
ball fans watched the UCLA
Bruins beat the Oregon Webfoots.
But these fans were also specta
tors at a contest that presented a
beaten but dogged, and courageous
group of men that played sixty
minutes of football as hard as
they could.
Under a sun that coaxed the
mercury up to the 90 mark, and
under the stigma of injury, the
University of Oregon chased an il
lusive all-American cii^.’h, Charles
Cheshire, who capered like a fox

But in the last quarter, three

Team Home
Again From
Los Angeles
Lopez Acclaimed
As Outstanding
Player in UCLA
A disgruntled party of football
players filed wearily out of a
Southern Pacific car at 3:25 this
morning and stepped into the cold
The unhappy group was the
University of Oregon Webfoots,
home in Eugene after absorbing a
merciless 33-to-6 lacing in a bruis
ing battle with U.C.L.A.’s Rose
Bowl-bound Bruins at Los Ange
les Saturday.
The Webfoots did their best
against the Uclans, they gave ev
erything they had—but the wild
men of Westwood were just too
good. It is doubtful if Chuck
Cheshire and his touchdown-mad
mates could have been stopped by
any team in the nation.
Lopez’ Play Stands Out
Oregon led the Bruins in first
downs, 11 to 8, if that’s any so
lace. In every other way, however,
the tussle was a complete rout for
Bill Spaulding and Co.
One solitary ray of light seeped
through the gloom. That was the
astounding performance of Ray
Lopez, sprightly 165-pound reserve
right halfback from Santa Monica.
Lopez, upon replacing Bob Brad
dock, immediately began to run
circles around, through, and all
over an already victorious U.C.L.A.
Once the Webfoots’ mighty mite
galloped 48 yards, once he dashed
off 27, and on a later occasion he
sprinted 39 yards. It was Lopez
who was almost solely responsible
for the lonesome Oregon score.
Webfoots Drive for Touchdown
Romey DePittard, who made a
good showing in his maiden effort
as a starter at left half, started
the Duck touchdown drive by
scampering 24 yards to his own
49-yard line midway through the
final quarter. Then Lopez went to
work. He broke through the line
and streaked 34 yards to the Bruin
17, and on the following play
rammed eight more to the nine,
j Packing the pigskin again, the
fiery Lopez tore his way for six
more, putting the Webfoots within
three yards of the Ucla goal. Two
more times the diminutive wild
! man smote the Bruin forward wall
I and that was enough. Oregon had
a touchdowm.
Lopez carried the leather on 18
occasions in all and" piled up the
amazing average of 10.5 yards per
try. Saturday’s contest established'

Chi Psi Team
Too Good for
Delta Upsilon
Betas Give Zeta
Hall Walloping, 14-0;
S.P.E. Beats Sigma
By 9-0 Score
Because of a much better de
fense, Chi Psi was able to win a
thrilling- water polo contest in last
night’s intramurals from a sur
prisingly strong Delta Upsilon
team by a 2 to 1 score. Chi Psi
was too aggressive and offered no
openings through which the D. U.
forwards could penetrate.
Wells, playing right forward for
Chi Psi, supplied the winning
punch for his team. His wto sen
sational shots accounted for the
millrace house victory. Each of
these two shots were on direct
passes and caught the D. U. goalie.
Newlands, off guard.
Betas Outclass Zcta Hall
Little Zeta hall had high hopes
of getting somewhere in water po
lo this year but their hopes par
tially vanished when they ran into
the Betas last night and lost by a
stunning 14 to 0 score. Previous
to yesterday’s contest, Zeta had
won two contests by forfeits and
they were really an untried team.
Last night they tried hard but
their efforts failed to avail much
against such brilliant Betas as
Reed and Sexton, who scored 12
points between them. Hubbell,
Speaker,4 and Thomas were out
standing for the Zetans.
S.P.E. Beats Sigma Hall
Sigma Phi Epsilon had two
players whom Sigma hall did not
keep their eyes on and this pair,
almost single-handed trimmed the
dormitory boys by a huge score of
9 to 0. Kirby, right guard, and
Angel, center forward, scored all
points for the fraternity outfit.
Phi Gamma Delta won their con
test last night from Gamma hall
on a forfeiture.

Kay Lopfez, among the tiniest of

against the “hig bad” Bruins from
Westwood last Saturday and won
acclaim as the outstanding Web
foot on the field. His brilliance was
compared to that of the UCLA
luminary, Chuck Cheshire, whose
sensational long distance runs
were almost matched by some
fancy stepping on the part of the
Duck halfback.
