DUCK TRACKS ifKi'iiriniiiiriimimiiiiliilllll By ELBERT HAWKINS Co-Sports Editor Oregon Daily Emerald A little pre-game philosophy ex pounded by Buck Berry, the 178 pound stocky varsity halfback from California, explains better than anything why he. and his Oregon grid mates were able to shoot themselves into the nalion’s foot ball spotlight Saturday by tying Southern California’s mighty Tro jans by a 7 to 7 count in their own back yard. “What the. h’ll have they got we haven’t got” is the way Tex Oli ver says his starting right half voiced it. In the Oregon camp the players were so sure they could pull what Los Angeles writers call a shock ing upset, they actually felt bad about being tied. Here’s what Oliver says about his boy Berry: “He is the first boy out of junior college ranks I’ve ever had who was ready to step right into the first string.” * * * The Smiling Texan praises Tac kle Jim Stuart and Guard Ernie Robertson for turning in a pair of stellar 50-minute games in the Los Angeles heat against the frequent fresh men they faced. Tackle Merle Peters was another singled out. Tex was demonstrating at the Ig loo yesterday how Trojans picked themselves off the turf and count ed their bones after “Bruiser” Ber ry hit ’em. All in all it was a good day for Willy Webfoot. Oliver is looking forward to winning “a few more games” because of the squad’s “de termination, courage, and high learn morale.” Ask Southern Cali fornia’s Howard Jones about that? It’s really a long story. It dates back to the beginning of spring practice when Tex Oliver told the team and everybody else they would beat Southern California next fall. So for several long months they drilled thinking they could whip the 1939 Rose Bowl champs. The team never read Southern Writer Will Connolly’s “pardon the yawn” column which very cockily painted a sour picture of the sandlot or backyard or revcrse English type of football played in the north (excepting Washington). Coach Tex to the contrary didn't want his boys to even look at such printed tripe, so they were instruct ed to not read any sports pages after they left Eugene. One thing he did consider laugh able enough to show the Ducks was a pre-season conference form chart deftly figured out by such California football experts as Mark Kelley, May Stiles, and Zid Ziff. They rated all conference clubs in various things such as alertness, deceptive, line, reserves, pass defense, strategy (coaching), etc. Here’s something that will tickle you, their rating on lines. South ern California 100 per cent, Oregon 50 per cent. On reserves the men of Troy were again tops with 100 per cent and Oregon about ladtom in the conference. In total percent age the Trojans had 1800 and Ore gon 080, which only shows again that games are won on the field. * * * Take line play, for instance, where USC rated twice as good as Oregon. For a good share of that game two of Tex's sophomores held down the tough left end spot which is the side of the opposing forward wall where Howard Jones has for years and still does un leash his vaunted offensive at tack.

American named Harry Smith. At the other guard spot was a man who had trained from 240 pounds down to a mere 22(5. That gave Troy a 223-pound average at guard against Oregon’s 200-plus. . . . the heaviest Webfoot being only 20.r>. For instance, one of the playing Ducks was Bud Nestor at 188 pounds.

For that was the day a gallant. Webfoot football team—Tex Oliver sparked -looked El Trojan right in the eye, whipped him for three quarters, and finally wound up with a 7-7 tie. The score in itself is amazing. Seven all is certainly a far cry from me Ou-io-u, ana ua-to-u scores oi Doc Spears’ regime. Or even from the 26 to 14 of Prink Callison’s last year at Oregon’s helm, and the 31 to 7 of last year, Oliver's first. Not since a 34 to 0 drubbing in 1915 had Oregon whipped a Trojan team. Always a Hex The mighty Trojan warhorse has always been a pet hex of the Web foots, the Oregonians wilting at sight of the burly, and plentiful gentlemen from Southern Cali fornia’s largest and most de-cen tralized metropolis. But this year, the Oregons, urged on by the crackling voice of Buck Berry, a whale of a halfback from the sunny land, got tough, yes very tough, and blocked and tackled mayhap even a little hard er than the hordes of Troy. Yes, these Webfoots may have a long way to go to become a champion, but they’ve already made Oregon football history, and what’s more, they've shown they could get just as tough, and a lit tle tougher than the other guys, be they the best in the land or just a good team: Sehindler Stopped Forty thousand fans gathered in the huge Memorial Coliseum at Los Angeles to watch an expected Southern Cal victory. Pre-season grid ballyhoo boomed Howard Jones' veteran crew-19 lettermen —as the nation's top football ma chine. Coast champs in ’38, also Rose Bowl victors, certainly they deserved it, for back to help the veterans was Ambling Amby Schindler, the Trojan star of the ’37 season. In spite of ail that, Oregon’s line and secondary tossed the Trojan running attack back on its heels from the first, and with only sec onds to go before halftime, the Webfoots crossed the California goal line, and lo, Oregon was ahead by seven big points, rabbit) Graybeal started the big l^ijarararaiSMISMSMEEJElSiSIBlSMSISISlSIfilS push, and Bob Smith, his succes sor, made it good when he flipped i pass, 14 yards, to .John Berry, waiting on the goal line. A scoreless third quarter fol lowed, and then in the eventful fourth period, a blocked Oregon punt gave Southern Cal’s vaunted lir attack a chance to click. Into the ball game came Doyle Nave, the pass-throwing hero of rroy's famous Rose Bowl stand, md he pitched the Troans to a touchdown. From the Oregon 44, where Troy recovered Berry’s blocked kick, Nave began firing passes. With the ball on the 11, le pitched a perfect strike to Okla homa Bob Peoples who jerked and wiggled to a score. Sparkling Oregon discovery was John Berry, husky left half, who was rated the best back on the field by Cal scribes. Only serious casualty in the Oregon camp was Bob Blenkinsop, who received a fractured arm. End Blenkinsop will be lost to the squad for the rest of the season. Oregon USC Blenkinsop .LE.
