individuals responsible for win
ning Saturday’s “dream - come -
true” on Hayward field. “Just pick
the whole squad,” says Tex.
Heads-up Jay Graybeal saved it
once defensively by intercepting a
last-second pass, Vic Reginato
grabbed a Bruin by one foot with
his right hand once when the lad
was scampering free for a touch
down. But why try to name indivi
vidual defensive or offensive plays
where various Ducks saved the
day, there were too many.
Perhaps Coach Oliver should get
the most praise for his “hypoder
mic” substitutions of players at
spot moments. Just when Oregon’s
offense might seem to be slowing
down, Tex would shoot in some lad
to keep the spark alive.
Lest any of you walked away
from the Bruin contest so jittery
and dazed that you still think
UCLA tied Oregon—several cash
customers actually did—a peek in
to the rule book may help clarify
Case—With the score 14 to 12
for Oregon in the last second of
play, Jay Graybeal intercepts a
UCLA pass and falls out of the
end zone with it.
Ruling—"A touchback is made
when the ball in possession and
control of a player guarding his
own goal is declared dead by the
referee, any part of it being on,
above, or behind the goal line,
provided the impetus which sent
it to or across the goal line was
given by an opponent.’ Section 6,
Article 1, Item 1.
In the Washington State game,
Bob Smith thought he was produc
ing the same automatic touchback
as clever jay Graybcal’s, but un
luckily happened to be a yard or
two in front of the goal line on his
interception. The Cougars chalked
up two quite harmless points by
trapping Smith in the end zone.
Graybeal could have presented
UCLA with a touchdown in that
historic last play Saturday by bat
ting the pigskin into the hands of
an anxious Bruin.
Had there been more time fol
lowing Graybcal’s self - elected
touchback, Oregon would have been
given the ball to put in scrimmage
from “anywhere on the 20-yard

Still receiving wires of congratulation from all over the country
for Oregon’s gallant 14-12 triumph over the classy UCLA Bruins
Saturday, Coach Tex Oliver yesterday praised the spirit shown hy
his Webfoots in their uphill fight to victory.
Oregon's "Man of the Hour" rated the “comeback spirit" of the
Webfoots as a very large factor in the last-quarter winf Especially
was he pleased by the play of a line which tossed the bulky Bruins
