There’s one inescapable conclu
sion University of Oregon’s happy
footballers gave close observ
ers just before departing for
Berkeley and today’s scrap with
the down-but-not-out California
Golden Bears, defending co-cham
pions of the Coast conference.
The squad as a whole radiated
with the idea that they’re going
down south to win another one. In
the past, and even last year, they
went down a little afraid it was (
going to be the same old story— j
defeat. But this trip there’s no j
fear at all in the hearts of the
Oregon Ducks, they’re sincerely
figuring on turning the trick.
Railbirds who saw Tex Oliver’s
first Oregon team lose to Califor
nia, 20 to 0, last season came away
feeling the Webfoots weren’t out
classed a bit—in fact it looked
more like a one touchdown dif
ference. Oliver has more than once
said just: "We’ll give ’em a battle,”
before a big game but this time
before leaving Eugene he confided
that he really figures Oregon to
win. Such optimism shouldn’t be
taken too lightly for there’s really
a difference between going to
Berkeley to PLAY a game or go
ing down to WIN one.

Speaking; of feminine pulchri
tude ... a couple of seasons ago
we had a coed golfer invade the j
ranks of the campus men by turn
ing out for frosh golf. But this
time it’s an ambitious coed who be
comes "the first woman to ever
enter men’s all-campus sports com
petition.” A bit fantastic maybe ^
but a fact.
Hope Dondero, one of the school
of journalism's top notch golfers,
amen, has entered all-campus golf
doubles with an Alpha halier, and
she’s good enough to threaten
male domination. What’s more,
Miss Dondero’s entry is fully ap
proved by the intramural board.
“Why not,” says Russ Cutler, “it
ought to promote better social re
lations on the campus.” Rollie
Dickie, intramural head, says OK,
and he even visualizes the day
when a whole bevy of coeds might
enter the tournament.
For the benefit of all-campus
dlvoteers who’ll be in the tourna
ment—watch out! A couple of days
ago the gal toured one nine at
Laurel wood in 42 und hit drives
that were a pleasure to watch. Not
two or three, but all of ’em sailed
down the middle, and out around
the 200-yard mark—which Is good
enough for any Sunday golfer.
Oh no, Hope won’t play in men's
intramural basketball. She was an
all-star and top scorer in coed play
last winter, but Dickie and Cutler
and company have to draw the
line somewhere. Anyway, who
would want to pick up an Emerald

UCLA Meets Reds;
Oregon Play Bears;
Huskies Face WSC
By BERNARD ENGEL
Today will see three significant
Coast conference football tilts and
two king’s-x clashes. Oregon takes
on the California Golden Bears;
UCLA meets the battered Stanford
Indians, and Washington goes to
the post at Pullman in the annual
home-state feud. Meanwhile Ore
gon State will meet a supposed
breather, Portland university,
while Southern California plays
her third game of the season in
Los Angeles, this time against Illi
The Oregon - California game
looks like a struggle; the Lemon
and Green squad is a slight favor
ite but Coach Allison’s boys are
after their first 1939 victory and
have a demon pass-slinger, Orv
Hatcher, to base their hopes on.
Oregon is rated by experts, includ
ing Williamson of the Associated
Press, as one of the top elevens
in the nation.
Stanford’s twice-defeated war
riors are again the underdogs, witli
UCLA slated to do the dirty work
this time. The Los Angeles boys
have come up with a surprisingly
strong squad this season. This is
the Indians’ first '39 appearance
in California; possibly its vaunted
sunshine will improve their play.
Up north, a traditional battle
sees Washington favored over her
Stater sisters, although Babe Hol
lingbery’s boys are endowed with
a never-say-die spirit when the
Seattle school is mentioned.
Oregon State is likely to find
her hands full for a quarter or two
in her clash with the cliff-dwelling
Portland university lads. The sup
erior Orange reserves should see
her safely through just as last
year, when Portland put up a stiff
defense the first half but crumbled
and lost 19-0 in the latter period.
The intersectional Illinois-Sou
thern California battle rates as an
easy win for the men of Troy.
Illinois’ fortunes are down and a
change of weather after a long
train trip won’t help the easterners.

‘'Last Saturday's Stanford game
thrilled me more than anything I’ve
done in the past three years!”
These words came from none other
than Oregon's No. 1 candidate for
All-America honors, Jay Graybeal,
who has been hitting the headlines
all over the coast as the peppery
little halfback who scored not just
seven not just eight nor nine
but all ten of Oregon's points
against Stanford Saturday.
Jay has earned every ounce of
distinction he has gotten, not only
for his playing, but for his year
around perseverance in curing a
deadly trick knee, usually curtains
for foot ball players. This same
knee kept Graybeal on the bench
most of last year, but he reported
to Coach Tex Oliver this fall in
top condition, and has been instru
mental in scoring both of Oregon's
touchdowns against Southern Cal
ifornia and Stanford.
Majoring in physical education.
Jay is not certain about his future
as yet, but he has nearly a whole
year to decide between coaching or
entering the business world.
Born 22 years ago, Graybeal
played football at Pendleton high
school under Mark Temple, ex
Oregon star. He was also on the
basketball team, and ran the
sprints and broad jumped for the

These four Webfoot backfield men will see plenty of aetion in today’s game with California. They
are, from left to right: Dennis Donovan, Bob Smith, Frank Emmons, and Jay Graybeal. Graybeal is
not expected to start, but will undoubtedly see plenty of action. In his place will be John “Buck” Berry,

Former Washington Stater, Coacher
Of Jefferson's Title Winners, to Help
With Football and Tutor Wrestlers
By KEN CHRISTIANSON
Really a bury man that’s Eric Waldorf, graying graduate assistant
in physical education. Last night he scouted the Gonzaga-Idaho game
in Spokane, and today it'll be the civil war at Pullman between Wash
ington and Washington State.
Waldorf comes to Oregon to study for his master’s degree. He
turned out five championship teams during eleven years as head foot
ball coach at Jefferson high school
As an athlete at Washington
State. Waldorf played three years
of football as a regular. The first
year he played right end. The sec
ond year he was shifted to the
backfield to the left halfback post
and the third year to fullback. He
then had to shave off nine pounds
to make the wrestling team for a

and to assist in coaching the fresh

“Attention to detail of execu
tion,” was the reason for cham
pionship teams turned out at Jef
ferson, according to Waldorf.
This was proven at Jefferson.
The first year as coach, he lost
five, won one, and tied one game.
The ex-Cougar player asked him
self why. In one game, “the ball
was only returned two yards on
j the kickoff.” Waldorf spent two
days on kickoffs and returning
kicks. On another play, "no yard
age was made on a wide end run.”
Three days were spent on taking
out the opposing end, tackle, and

Because only one yard was made
on a line buck, Waldorf drilled a

ing back in taking out the defen
sive back. Another week was spent
on drilling the defense on punting
The next year with a) squad of
sophomores, Waldorf won four and
lost three games. He won five and
lost two the next year. When the,
sophomores were seniors, the Jef- ]
ferson Democrats were unscored j
upon. That was the year that Bob
bie Grayson was senior. When peo
ple said that Grayson made Wal
dorf, the genial coach came back
next year with an undefeated sea
son and kept on winning.
In the last three years he ran
up a string of three straight Port
land conference titles.

Ducklings' Longest Drive Is Halted
Near Stater Goal Line Late in Game;
Score at Halftime Is 13 to 0

MULTNOMAH STADIUM, Portland, Oct. 13. Bill McKalip’s fight
ing Oregon State rooks overpowered a game but beaten Oregon frosh
squad by three touchdowns here tonight. Final score of the contest
was 19 to 0.
The yearlings scored in all but the third quarter. Their first touch
down came after a 68-yard drive down the field in the opening period.
George Redden, lett halt back, who
with Harold Fox and Joe Day
sparked the State attack, carried
the ball over from the one-yard
line. Wickett converted the extra
The frosh put up a game defense,
but immediately after the start of
the second quarter Fox picked up
Withers’ blocked kick and ran 23
yards into pay dirt. This time the
conversion was wide.
Oregon made one real scoring
threat, that in the fourth quarter.
The rooks stiffened, however, and
held for downs on their seven-yard
line. That was as close as the
Warren-coached boys ever came to
Oregon State made a final
touchdown within five minutes of
the final gun, as result of another
blocked kick on the frosh three.
