A prognostication percentage of
between .600 and .700 on nation
wide football games isn’t exactly
disastrous, but if is far from being
good enough to qualify you for

last Saturday, I picked up a little

Mythical Northwest Title
Captured at Portland by
Final Quarter Point Spree

Passes; Mabee and Stenstrom Star
A first quarter touchdown plus
a wild scoring spree in the final
period gave the Husky Babes of
the University of Washington a
26-0 victory over Honest John
Warren's Oregon frosh under the
lights of Multnomah stadium in
Portland last night. /
The Washington freshmen struck
a vital blow in the opening minutes
of the first period when they
marched to the frosh 6-yard line
on a sustained power drive. Backed
to their goal line, the Warren men
j tightened and held for clowns,
kicking out to the Washington 38
yard stripe immediately.
Husky Pups I let urn
Undaunted the Husky pup came
snarling back, and on six plays
planted the oval back of the Ore
gon goal line, Monkie Monkus, big
fullback, who played the leading
role in the Babe’s attack, going
over for the score with Vani, con
The count stood until early
in the final session when the Babe
ground offensive began clicking.
Monkus and Rudy Mucha, running
mates from Chicago, took turns
i tinning the ball down the field,
marching 63 yards to the Frosh
two where McAdam dove to pay
dirt, Vani again converting.

Eddie Hearn Drops
Bob Street, Kupfer^
The elimination of last year's
singles champion and the Portland
city champion featured the first
round of the all-campus tennis
tournament which was finished
early this week.
Wally Kupfer, last year’s winter
term singles champion was elimin
ated for the tournament by Harold
Faunt in a hard fought match.
Kupfer teamed with Ronnie Husk
last year to take part of the glory
in the doubles championship.
Bob Street, city champion of the
Rose city was unexpectedly drop
ped by Eddie Hearn, singles cham
pion two years ago, and veteran of
three all-campus tournaments.
Other potential champions
who survived the first round play ^
were Les Werschkul, fall term
singles champ last year, and Karl
Mann and Pete Klonoff, tourna
ment veterans. Bob Horning who
blows a mean trumpet in Babe Bin
ford’s is also adept to equally
swinging a ping pong paddle, and
will probably give some of the title
contenders a good race.
Second round matches were list
ed to have been completed by last
Wednesday and all participants are •
requested to contact their oppo
nents and play off the matches as
soon as possible.
Quarter-final matches should be
completed by November 3.
The semi-finals have been reach
ed in the doubles competition with
two favored teams still in the run
