Oregon To Be Up Against One of Nation’s Best Backfields Today
The rain is thundering down on greasy thoroughfare
and sagging awning as we slosh our way among the knots
of people that scurry townward with the falling leaves.
Great chained trains rumble in the street beside us. hounded
by lesser vehicles whose wheels whine joyously against
the water on the pavement. We bow our heads against
the gale and quicken our pace. Through a muddy park
filled with dull quiet and we're back once more with the
ever growing legions of umbrellas. Weird, those stiffly
wagging mushrooms of with their colors driven to seclusion
under the grey canopy of the late afternoon. Head down
again, a thousand strides or more. A turn to the right, and
the cacapliony of the city smites us. Eyes cast suddenly
upward, dilate, follow the walls of great buildings toward
the sky, until somewhere above they dimly arch and are

The sense of great loneliness conies to us. even in this
Grand canyon of a giant metropolis with its hordes of
splashers. They do not seem so bent on their own business,
on the city's business, perhaps. But us, we have no business.
What are we doing here. Where, in the name of heaven, are
we anyhow? Lights, millions of them, dispel the wraiths
of fog and dusk with their incandescent suddenness of ap
pearance. We drift along, gaping. Brilliant raindrops.
Brilliant figures walking through the silver sheet. Food.
Halt. Hunger. A neon monstrosity shouted above a door
way, a massive portal guarded by a massive liveried figure,

We enter. The smell of simmering roasts and fresh
baked bread clings to the room. The interior of the place
is swathed in velvet. Haunting music steals from the flower
laden balocny.
The curtains to an alcove on our right part softly. We
glance up. We nearly faint at the apparition that ap
proaches. It is a gently hopping, tux clad kangeroo. It stops
before us. “Your coat, monsieur, and, ah, yet, perhaps a
We follow the lieadwaiter down three steps, around a
curved corridor, and into a spacious dining salon. Once
seated we glance about, and then appetite is truly forgotten.
Drawn around several ajoining tables, talking, smoking,
singing, garbed in stylish evening clothes, is every con
ceivable kind of animal.
Fascinated, we stare and listen. A trim. Husky clad in
tails is ordering. “A Duck dinner for eleven.”
The ponderous table waiting ape shuffles apologetic
“Very sorry, monsieur, but the Ducks, although not
flying high this year, seem impossible to bring down.”
The Husky and his party rise and head sourly toward
the exit.
Glancing further, our eyes light on a stiff fronted
Grizzly. He’s partaking rather hurriedly of a dish unknown
to us. We see. How barbaric. A Beaver's tail emerges from
the platter before him and rest stiffly on the white table
# # •»
The beauty of the flowers on every table had caught
our fancy when we entered. Therefore, it is with amazement
that we view a wanton piece of destruction that is trans
piring nearly at our elbow. A giant horse, nearly as large
as the Wooden Horse of Troy, is crouched low in his chair,
neck outstreched, eating the last of his table boquet. As the
final flower drifts between his lips, we identify it as a
liambler rose.

“Yes, civilization and sophistication are personified
at the ‘ZOOLOGICAL CAFE,’ that is what we are begin
ning to conclude. But those conclusions were never quite
totally reached. Sitting about three tables to our right was
a Tiger tapping nervously, apparently eager to be served.
He has to wait but a moment before two waiters approach
bearing a tremendous trough. We crame forward. Curiosity
is satisfied all too suddenly as the contests of the trough
greets our eyes. Lying steaming therein is a baked Indian.
* * ' s*
Protesting table waiters try to detain us, but that
sight puts a finish to the evening's appetite. We are running
down a black hallway. How long we have been running we
do not know. Our footsteps soften as we approach a lighted
doorway. From within come gentle moans. Badly staring
at the green covered table before him is a Golden Bear.
His bow tie is hanging like a loose ribbon from Ids neck.
His hair is tousled. Beside him lies an open purse. It is
empty. He moans again, a: I 1 runs his paws nervously over
his face:
“Too many Cards against me.”
Wondering, we count the pasteboards before him and
“Too many? Why, there are only eleven.”
Enough is enough. Enough was too much this time.
Back into the rain—back into the world—may God rest
our sold—after the Husky.

Cinch Rose Bowl Epic
With Oregon and Washington
battling for the mythical North
west crown at Seattle, football in
terest on the coast centers today
on the tussle at Palo Alto between
the California Bears and the Stan
ford Cards.
Boasting a clear record to date
the Bears will need only this vic
tory to almost insure a bid to rep
resent the West in the annual
Rose Bowl game on New Year's
Day. Pre-game dopesters in the
southern areas are giving them
the edge in everything except a
possible Cardinal victory boot

Upsetting every dope-bucket
in the state and putting and end
to the mythical state champion
ship dreams of Eugene high
school, the University high
school Golden Tide last night
rose up in glory and handed the
favorites a 31 to 12 beating.
The star Cardinal end has been
winning game after game this
season by his seemingly never
missing field goals, and unless the
powerful Cal offense can chalk up
a sizeable lead early the Stanford
supporters will again sound their
victory cry.
In the only other conference
mixup the Oregon State Beavers

over the Montana team as they
rest up for a Thanksgiving day

Another southland tilt sees the

A great kicking duel will be on lap between Stan Kiordan (above)
and Elmer Logg, in Seattle, this afternoon. Both are touted as the
best punters on the coast. The game today will decide just who ought
to rule the roost.
Jerry Donnell, the Oregon full
back who slashed the Portland
Pilots’ defense so effectively last
week, received his biggest thrill of
football while playing for Citrus
junior college.
The thrill came in a game
against Chaffee jaysec in 1932. The
game was furiously fought, and
with only three minutes left to
play, Chaffee led 7-6.
At this point, Citrus had posses
sion of the ball on her own thirty
yard line. On the first down,
Maury Van Vliet, former Oregon
flash, faked a pass to Donnell. Me
Cue and Fred Funk, of the Chaffee
team who are now playing foi

had the ball.

for a touchdown. The final score

End Conference Play
When Oregon and Washington
tear into each other in Seattle this
afternoon, Prink Callison's Weh
loots will run into one of the out
standing backfield combinations in
the West. Through the undoubt
ed ability of By Haines, Elmer
kogg\ Jimmy Cain, and Ed Now
ogroski the Huskies are planning
to coast to victory.
Last year, as sophomores, the
above named quartet of backs es
tablished themselves as among the
best behind-the-line combinations
on the coast. This season, as jun
iors, they have developed into all
conference Umber and all-Ameri
can prospects.
Haines Uncanny Passer
On the wings of passes heaved
through the upper air by Byron
Haines the Huskies have scored
several times this season, and plan
to score more. Cain, brilliant at
right half in every Washington
start, has been on the sidelines in
practice with a fractured rib, but
has recovered enough so that he
may be expected to have his crack
at the Webfoots. In case Cain is
unable to start, Frank Wascowitz,
a pass-flinger second only to
Haines, will play right half.
Elmer Logg is almost as great
a punter as Oregon’s Stan Rior
dan, and that’s saying plenty. As
for Fullback Nowogroski, his driv
ing, plunging style of play is com
parable to that of Frank Michek.
Ducks Also Have Star Backs
Washington will by no means
have a monopoly on star backs for
the big fight, for the Ducks have
in addition to Michek, who takes
a back seat for no one, at least
three other outstanding luminaries
behind the forward wall.
Bob Braddock at right half is
a blocker and ball packe* with
few equals, and at quarterback
steady, reliable Johnny Reischman
is always effective. Callison has
not definitely decided whether to
start the recuperating Bud Goodin
or Dale Lassclle at left half, but
either can be counted upon to
cause Jimmy Phelan’s aggregation
lots of worry.
Lines Stack Up Even
Despite the brilliance of back
field big shots on both teams, it is
in the line where the most bitter
battle will be fought. Any real
edge which the Huskies can be giv
en on paper must be accounted for
in the backfield, for Oregon’s line,
especially the left side, is at least
as strong as any the Purple and
Gold can field.
Stan Riordan, number one punt
er of the West; Del Bjork, socking
son of Astoria, and Captain Ross
Carter are the three lads who do
the chores at left end, left tackle,
and left guard, respectively, in the
VVebfoot line and every one is a
Three Sophs in Line
The remainder of the Oregon
line finds three sophomores hold
ing down first string positions.
Vernon Moore at center, Tony
Amato at right guard, and Ken
yon Skinner at the adjacent tackle
are all second-year men. With an
other sophomore, Lief Jacobsen,
left home in the hospital, the vet
eran Budd Joness is expected to
open at right end.
Clarence Codding, senior guard,
who played regularly on the right
side of the forward wall until his
injury in the Utah tilt, has recov
ered and may be used as a reserve
for Amato today, but he will not
start. It is a bare possibility that
Ed Farrar, another senior, will get
the call over Moore at the pivot

star, Joe Wiatrack, at center.
All during tlje past week Jimmy
Phelan has been concentrating his
practice sessions on defense
against the long kicks of Stan
Riordan, and it is to the above
forward wall that the task of fil
tering through on the Webfoot
star’s boot will fall.
Eight Play Final League Game
For eight Oregon players to
day's game will mark the close of
illustrious coast conference ca
reers. Carter, Codding, Riordan,
Jones, Reischman, Michek, Andy
Hurney, reserve guard, and Jerry
Donnell, fullback second-stringer,
will finish their conference activi
ties for the Lemon and Green.
In 29 Duck-Husky duels in the
past Oregon has won 13 times to
12 for Washington with four ties,
so a Husky triumph today would
even the count. Last year the
northerners snapped an Oregon
victory streak, during which the
Huskies had for six seasons failed
to score, and drubbed the Web
foots 16 to 6.
Rain is in prospect for the con
test, with attendance depending
