Saturday’s Oregon-Gonzaga at-!
fair will Rive students and towns- j
people their first opportunity to
view a greatly improved Hayward
field athletic plant.
In place of the old, weather
beaten west grandstand is a new
structure which is the exact (al
most) replica of the large east
stand. And in addition, the east
stand has also been enlarged a few
But that’s not all. The “barny”
look of the old stadium is gone, for
an ample coating (several coats, in
fact) of green-gray paint has been
applied to the outside.
A new press-box, all glass, Is
also ready for dedication, and will
be thrown open by Publicity Direc
tor Bruce Hamby Saturday. The
future “hangout” of football re
porters, scouts, and publicity men
is directly above the field, and is
classed by Oregon officials as one
of the best on the coast.
The “new” Hayward field lids a
capacity of 17,500, according to
Anse Cornell. This is 1,500 more
than the former seating limit. Ath
letic Director Cornell intends to
set up an additional 500 bleacher
seats to shoot the total to 18,000.
When you really get down to it,
there’s nothing in this game of
football Jay (Jackrabbit) Gray
beal can’t do, and do well. It’s
mighty surprising, sometimes.
In his sophomore year, opposing
clubs respected little Jay’s ball
packing and pass-catching ability,
but they didn't think very much of
his passing and kicking.
Bust year it was the same, for
Jay was hurt before he had a real
c hance to show.
But this year, things are differ
ent. Little Jay is giving opposing
clubs one surprise package after
another. Southern California was
amazed to find Jay doing a lot
of the punting, and Stanford was
evrn more startled when he passed
nearly 30 yards to Donovan on the
Indian two-yard line. What's more,
Graybeal’s conversion after the
touchdown and field goal from an
angle virtually demoralized the big
red machine from Palo Alto.
The story doesn't end with the
Stanford game, however. Califor
nia's golden Bears can testify to
. that, for it was against these boys
that Jay pulled his latest. Kicking
off, he toed the ball long and high
and into the Cal end zone.
As far as your scribe can re
member, Gaybeal had never kicked
off before in the nearly three years
of varsity ball. Coach Oliver
thought Jay was only kidding at

Old man injury took another
crack at John Warren's fre.shman
football team yesterday afternoon.
This time Walt Kaplan, right
guard, fell before his onslaught
with a wrenched knee.
Kaplan's loss raises the number
of major casualties to seven for
the past week, and if things keep
on at their present rate, it should

Next on the list was Don Mabee,
a converted end from last year's
team. Don was running with the
hall and throwing passes as well.
His southpaw pitching aim looked
particularly good. Mabee is one of
the three fastest halves on the en
tire squad, but has been hampered
by a bad knee lately.
Stevie Snares Passes
Number three to shine was Steve
Anderson. Sometimes Steve looks
like just about the smoothest thing
on two feet. All the sideline “ex
ports” are still waiting for him to
break up a game this fall. As some
will well remember, he was the
big gun in the 40-to-6 rout of Gon
zaga two years ago.
Besides doing a nice job of sharp
cutting on the offense, Steve broke
up the first stringers by intercept
ing a couple of Bob Smith’s passes,
while back in safety. And during
punt practice a couple of nights
ago, Anderson sent nearly all of
them out past the 50 and 60-yard

stuff was Len Isberg, who has seen
some action in the conference
games. Len must have picked up
additional speed from somewhere,
for he moved through the line with
plenty of spark. He was the only
man to apparently feel the effects
of the tough scrimmage. A hard
fall on someone's cleats put Len
out for a second, but he got up and

Look out for the seat of those trousers, Ducks!
Gonzaga university’s hungry Bulldogs are headed this way primed
to dump the Lemon-and-Green wave. While the Eugene team is heav

Tradition Favors Ducks
Tradition also favors the Webfoots, but both teams have done
some fancy record-busting this
season. Oregon broke one prize

time in many a dog’s life.
