But the vociferous one kept the
press amused Saturday during the
> Idaho game by thinking out loud.
For instance: “The big horse got
him—he’s a horse that guy,” said
Buck once when big Dick Trz.us
kowski, Idaho’s booming 214-pound
left tackle nailed another Oregon
ball toter.
Merle Stoddard, Vandal reserve,
dropped back to his own JO-yard
line. “What’ll he do Buck,” some
one questioned. “He may kick a
long high spiral—or he may kick
it straight up,” retorted the clown
from Pullman very seriously. To
the whole Idaho team once:
“Throw a long one if you’re going
to throw it.” He didn’t whisper
things like that, no sir, Buck
shouted apparently in a vain at
tempt to influence the quarter
In one of his more sane mo
ments, Buck praised Idaho’s Har
old Roise, triple threat left half.
“Roise is a good ball player;
they’ve got a good team when he's
in there but not when he isn’t.”
Roise’s talented toe work; on
punts was enough to make him a
standout. His first boot went 54
yards and out of bounds on the
Oregon nine-yard line. Then he
hit the four in coffin corner terri
tory, and capped it with another
inside the 20 by one yard. To
prove that the first three weren't
flukes, Hal later kicked another
out on the Oregon eight.

Trainers Trounce
Mopey Managers
Decisive Victory Is
Posted; Final Tally
For another year, the Trainers
hold the touch football champion
ship of the Igloo basement. Bob
Officer's Kubbergorkies retained
their title by whipping the Man
agers Sunday morning on a frost
covered varsity practice field.
But that isn't the big argument
in the Igloo basement at present.
The big argument is the score. The
Managers, with Mouthpiece Eddie
Thomas doing the talking, contend
that it was 19 to (1 in favor of
the Trainers and this is the exact
score under any set of rules but
the John Day conference rules.
Under these rules, upheld by Bob
Officer, the mighty Trainers won
66 to 6. According to the way he
interprets the rules, and he’s the
only one who knows them, a touch
down by his team is 18 points and
a conversion two points, while a
score by the other team is only
6 points.
Proselyting Charged
Tho Managers further claim that
they won by default, because Offi
cer reached far afield to proselyte
Art Holman, an ex-track star, to
play, and play a big part he did.
Officer played a big part on de
fense himself. It was through his
side of the defense that the train
ers scored their only touchdown.
The big stars, however, for the
trainers were Bob Parke and Vino
Hod Hansen. Hansen scored two
ot the Trainer goals, and Parke
was termed a triple-F man by Offi
cer. It seams that Parke's strategy
was to fake, fumble, and fall down.
Thomas admitted after the game
that he was the star of the Man
ager squad, although it was Bob
Engleke's one-handed catch that
brought the only manager score.
Vouch Bill Hayward was the
only one of the Trainers who would
say nothing concerning the game.
He remained non-commital, let

King’s-X Win Over Idaho
Boosts Rejuvenated Team
Back on Victory Trail
| Oregon's Webfoots returned to the winning track Saturday after
noon with a smashing display of blocking that nearly swept Idaho
off Hayward field and gave them a 19 to 6 victory over the valiant
Vandals from the Inland Empire. It was Oregon's third victory in
; six games for the season.
! Webfoot fans who had seen a travel-weary and battered Webfoot
| crushed by Southern California the week before marveled at the
, rejuvenation shown hy coach lex
Oliver’s team. Xml those who had
; never climbed off the Oregon band
wagon despite three successive de
feats, cheered at the Oliver magic.
Some eight thousand fans were
in tlie stands, and a goodly portion
I of these were Oregon grads, ath
letic stars of former years, back to
watch the Webfoots roll in the
feature event of Homecoming
And the big Duck team did roll,
after a late start which saw the
Vandals off to a second quarter
A few minutes? later, the Web
foots were again fighting with
their backs against the wall, after
Roise's kick rolled out of bounds
on the Oregon eight.
Off to the Races
And right there, the big Oregon
team began to click. On the very
first play Bob Smith cut off tackle,
and with his mates opening a hole
in ttie Idaho line and mowing down
potential Idaho tacklers like a
binder in a wheatfield, he broke
into the open to run 92 yards for a
Jimmy Nicholson jumped off the
Oregon bench following- this turn
of fortune, and quickly kicked the
extra point.
The half ended, with the score
still < to t> for Oregon, but when
the third period opened, the Ducks I
were on the move again. Oregon!
scored twice in quick thrusts. But'
Doth scores were called back and i
Oivgon penalized.
Oebhardt stepped through a big.
hole at guard on a fake reverse
and ran 34 yards for the Duck's i
second tally. Nicholson missed the
conversion, the first one he had
missed all season.

1 be final Oregon score came in
tl\o last period and was set up by
Jimmy Nicholson's brilliant bo
yard run. Jimmy let one of Roise's
kicks go through his arms on Ore

and cut to the right, galloping all
the way down to the Idaho one
yard line as Webfoot blockers

Nick out of bounds on the one.

! Ducklings Drill
|For Final Chance
At State Rooks
Injuries Take Toll
On Warren's Line;
Shift Probable
With their third and final game
of the season set for Friday after
noon on Hayward field, John War
ren’s fighting Duckling football I
team started their last week of
intense drill before the Rook in
Warren sent his boys through
offensive drills last night in round
ing up a smooth running attack for
Friday’s encounter.
The frosh have suffered losses
this season to the University of
Washington freshpen, played in
Seattle, 6 to 0, and one game to
the Oregon State Rooks, played at
Klamath Falls, 7 to 6. The first I
skirmish with the Rooks was
fought to a scoreless deadlock at1
Portland. The Duckling eleven
trounced Southern Oregon Normal
school earlier in the season at
Grants Pass, 26 to 13.
This weekend will be the last op
portunity for the Ducklings to !
even the “little civil war” series,
which the Rooks now lead with one
Loses Three Men
Warren has lost the services of
three of his regulars for the tilt, i
Ed Moshofsky, big tackle from
Beaverton, is out for the rest of
the season with an injured knee.
Walt Lidstrom, talented end from :
Bend, is also out with a bad knee j
injury suffered in practice last |
week. Val Culwell, former regular
left tackle, has been out for sev
eral weeks with a stomach ailment
and will not see action this week
Lcn Surles, hefty teammate of
Lidstrom’s while at Bend, has
taken over the tackle job and is
showing up well for the starting
Bernie McCudden is holding
down right tackle with Bob (Red)
Davis and Ray Segale taking the
guard posts. Elliott Wilson, lanky
center, still holds the all-important
center position.
Ends Show Well
On each end of John Warren's
forward wall is Hymie Harris, 185
pounder from Seattle, and Bill
Regner of Portland. Both have
been showing up well in practice
and will probably start at the ends.
Warren has intimated that he
may shift Steve Fowler, Ashland
athlete, from blocking back to full
back. which, if he did, would put
shifty Duane Anderson, ex-Eugene
high quarterback, at the signal
calling spot. It will probably be
between Dominic Giovanini and
Duane Anderson for the starting
nod at quarterback.
Roy Dyer and Doug Caven will
fight it out this week in practice
for the starting honors at left half, I
with Bill Jensen or Laverne Van1
Harter being at the right wing'
back. I

Two field goals late in the third
quarter gave the Winnipeg Blue
Bombers the margin of victory.

The mighty Trojans bowled over
the California Bears and by doing
so became the cnly unbeaten, un

The Trojans have two remaining
games to play with Washington
and UCLA.
Uclans in Third
Thus Southern Cal occupies the
initial slot, and by their 13-to-7
win, dropped Cal down to second.
The Uclans moved up to third when
they battered Washington State
into submission with a 21-to-0 vic
tory. Fourth placed is equally
shared by Oregon and Oregon
State. The Beavers had a day of
rest while the Webfoots took the
non-conference Idaho Vandals into
camp, 19-6.
Washington’s Huskies ~ finally
broke into the win column, when
they met and conquered the Stan
ford Indians, 10 to 7. Tftis loss
dropped Stanford out of fourth
into fifth, with the Huskies on its
heels in the sixth position. Holding
down the tail end, the Washington

the season thus far Without a sin

girls’ hockey team was defeated
2-1 by the superior graduate team.
Although it was the alums’ first
game this season they showed
much more skill and ability, and i
played a fast scrappy game. .The
undergraduates, however, didn’t
give up easily and showed plenty
of spirit.
The scores were evenly dis- .
tributed throughout the game with
the grads taking the lead in the
first quarter when Naomi Mosh-~^

fast, superior playing brought the
second goal, again made by Miss
