Over at the University of Mon

players on prize-winning vegeta
bles, says the Montana Kaimin.
Some of the local business men
contributed to the training table a
whole truckload of squash, pota
toes, apples, cabbage, pumpkins,
tomatoes, rhubarb, and other fruit
and vegetables which had taken
honors at the Ravalli County fair.
Cucumbers were off the menu,
however, because they were a trifle
wilted when the truck finally
came in. In addition to consuming
the pride of Ravalli, the team did
well on local food.

Webfoot Crowds Turn Out
En Masse to Yell,Dance
As Pre-game Steam Rises
In a special flash received last
night a San Francisco sports
broadcaster picked Oregon to win
over UCLA in today’s game.
If the crowd at the outdoor ral
ly earlier in the evening was large
and enthusiastic it had nothing on
the struggling mass of humanity
which packed Gerlinger for the
rally dance last night.
While no official count was
taken, it was freely pronounced by
unofficial observers that Gerlinger
was crowded—jammed with vocif
erous Webfoot well-wishers. Few
home games have ever been so
spontaneously boosted, both at ral
ly and dance.
Art Holman’s music kept the
festivities in the proper mood
throughout the evening, while a
typical rally-dance intermission
program furnished the reminder
that behind it all was Tex Oliver’s

From three directions on the

offer proof of “that new Oregon

school year.
On the porch of Johnson hall,

Even the most inveterate Ore

resembling Webfoot teams of the

A new spirit, both among team

new offensive that is as varied as
the nationalities in Czechoslo

Tex Predicts Even Game
Coach Oliver, himself, expects
an even game, and he has made
the statement that with a few
breaks, the walloping Webfoots
can win their second conference
game in a row.
As for the game itself, nothing
is certain except that passes will
fill the air as two of the most
aerial-minded teams in the nation

eighth in the nation last year as a
passing team.
