Breather? A lot of coast foot
ball’s raving fandom, and sports
writers are railing tomorrow’s
Gnnzaga game just that. Whew,
I’d like to see a really tough foot
ball team then.
Prink Callison and his 40 Web
foots don't regard Mr. Mike Pe
carovieh’s team as a breather at
all. Past games against the “Zags”
have been to bitterly fought to al
low any such thoughts. True, Gon
zaga has yet to score on an Ore
gon team, but the winning margin
has averaged only one or two
touchdowns. No cinch about that.
For Oregon, the Spokane tilt is
an “off” Saturday from the regu
lar conference schedule. That
much can be said about it. Pure
ly a king's-x” Hereafter, due to a
conference ruling, there will be no
mid-season “king’s-x” games for
any of the eight clubs. Next fall
the first seven consecutive Satur
days for each team will be filled
with a round-robin date. Any in
tersectional games must come af

Line Coach Gene Shields re
turned from California this week
where he scouted Gonzaga's tilt
against St. Mary’s, praising the
Bulldogs highly for their task of
holding Slip Madigan’s Gaels score
less. St. Mary’s is weaker this
season, we’ll grant that, but re
member also Gonzaga’s scoreless
tie with Washington State a week
One consolation, Mike Pecaro
vich’s stubborn Bulldogs are evi
dently not an offensive team yet.
However, it takes a pretty smooth
combination to score on either
Washington State or St. Mary’s.
The main problem for Oregon is
to pierce the massive “Zag” for
ward wall, which Gene says will
carry a weight advantage.
It was Oregon’s line work in the
Stanford' game which caused plen
ty of worry for mentors Callison,
Shields, Reed, and Mikulak. One
explanation of course is that
Prink used a six-man line in an
ticipation of some heavy aerial
bombardment. Loss of Tony Ama
to, center of inspiration in the
Duck line, is another plausible
* * *
Of course it need not be said
that George Karaniatic must be
stopped. Karaniatic, a potential
all-American fullback candidate, is
key man in the Gon/.aga offense.
Dynamite George handles a triple
job of passing, running, and kick
ing, and when called upon uses his
JtIO pounds to advantage in block
Two half-pints in “Scooter”
llaug and “Mink” Melinkovioh,
should also be a tremendous both
er to would-be tacklcrs. A 60-niin
ute player in the person of Tim
O’Donnell, lumberjack from Idaho,
who flips passes with three fin
gers, fills the right half post.
That’s a sample of Gonzaga's
backfidd. The liue’s defensive
record speaks for itself.

athlete in no small way, for lie was
selected on the city all-star in both
baseball and football. Despite the
fact that he had offers from the
two Washington schools he spurn
ed them for Oregon. "It is the
spirit and the democratic way in
which the school is run that made
me change my mind."
He was counted on as one of the
many triple-threat men that "Hon
est" John Warren had in store.
"The Duke," however, will be un
able to play, for in Tuesday’s
scrimmage he received an ankle
injury which will put him on the
shelf for the all-important affair
with tlie Orange Babes tonight.
Duke's fire and pep will no doubt
be missed for he was something of
a spark plug in the baekfield.

this same “Jolting Jay,” more
than any other single factor, that
