DUCK i TRACKS mumtmiinimiintiiiiiiiiniiinnmmiiminiiniinumminiinntmniiirammmwii By ELBERT HAWKINS Co-Sports Editor Oregon Dally Emerald Scout Eric Waldorf spoke the plain and simple truth early last | week when he reported that it j would probably take two touch- j downs to beat Gonzaga. Eric saw j the Zags whip Idaho by three ; touchdowns and he jotted that lit- j tie statement down on his coach ing report as sort of a reminder that Oregon wouldn’t be playing a | set-up. There's no doubt that intensive scouting will teach a team some of the other guy's scoring secrets hut Oregon could have had every minute of Gonzaga’s four previous games covered like a blanket and it wouldn’t have stopped those two touchdowns. Coach Puggy Hunton let us in on the amazing fact that neither touchdown pass play the Zags used in pushing over their 12 to 7 upset had ever been used be fore in a game by the winners. Puggy Hunton’s boys were in a , gay mood in their dressing room | after the game and they were just bubbling over with things to say. . Tony (Spooks) Canadeo, star of the Bulldog backfield, had this to | say about a little No. 80 on the , Oregon team: “Jay Graybeal was about the trickiest fellow I ever j played against.” Did Gonzaga come down to Eu gene expecting to win? Listen to Tony again: “We came down here with that idea . . . you always do.” The football program tells us he came from Chicago to play foot ball for the Zags, but it wasn’t j a case of proselyting: “I knew some fellows here. I didn’t get any offers.” Those thick locks of gray hair betray his age as lie’s only lb years old. Ever wonder what a losing coach says to his victor on the field right after a game ? Coach Puggy ; Hunton was greeted with a sincere j “Nice going, you’ve got a bunch ' of nice hard clean boys” from de feated Tex Oliver. Fullback Cecil Hare and Half-! back Ray Hare, the brother com bination from Sheridan, Oregon, caused the Webfoots a lot of an guish all afternoon and it turns \ out that there are three more Hare brothers in school . . . two ’ playing high school football. The. two preppers, Fred and Ver non, were waiting outside the Gon 7.uga dressing room when some body pointed them out to Coach l'uggy Hunton. Said Puggy: “Hoo ray, we can use more the way they 1 went today.” The fifth llare (no pun) Jim, is a sixth grader. How did Gonzaga happen to steal Cecil and Ray right out of Oregon ? Again no proselyting was done. According to Cecil, Fa- 1 ther Roller of Sheridan talked them into going to Spokane. * * * Puggy Hunton, a mild-minnered coach who is quite obviously doing things in his first year at the helm for Gonzaga, had things to say: “My kids played great ball . . I kind of think Oregon was in a mood to be licked (no rockiness or I told you so when lie said that) . . . Oregon is lots stronger than Washington State ... I wonder bow many cigarettes I smoked this afternoon . . . Washington State shouldn't have beaten us— yet the scoreboard showed I!) to (i ... 1 think Oregon is as good as St. Mary’s.” Puggy willingly answered who he thought looked good for Ore gon: “Graybeal, Anderson, and Emmons . . . that fellow backing up the line . . . who was that, Ber ry?” About Canadeo's thick gray hair: “He’s gray as they make them . . .always lieeu that way, I guess."

Buck Berry Enjoys His Football and He's A Loyal Oregon Duck By BUCK IJUCHWACH There's an old song title which says you have to be a football hero to get the beautiful girls, or words to that effect. If that’s all you have to be, John Buck Berry should have all the feminine pulchritude in the University at his doorstep. For Mr. Berry is a football hero if there ever was one. He proved that to pigskin followers in his first three games as a Webfoot. In his first one against Southern Cali fornia he scored Oregon's only touchdown and was the outstand ing player on the field. In the Stanford and California games his defensive work was brilliant, with John breaking up play after play. However, lots of people knew Buck was a gridiron terror before he came to Oregon. He played for Compton Junior college in Cali fornia, scoring 123 points in 1938, which ranked him with the nation's top ball-toters. An unbelievable amount of football coaches recog nized his ability and attempted to persuade Berry to attend their re spective institutions. In fact every team in the coast conference made him an offer, plus propositions from Idaho, Notre Dame, Colorado, Colorado State, New Mexico, Flor ida, and a host of others. Why then, you ask, did Berry turn down these offers to attend Oregon? “I figured that Oregon was the best all-round school of the bunch," e x p 1 a i n e d Buck. "Besides we out on Uu> field in the first quar ter to look at Kay Hare's injured wrist. Mere’s how he told of the pain that fighting' Kulldog went through all afternoon: "When I went out there in the first quarter he lvid broken out in a cold sweat.’’ The Gon/.aga skipper voluntarily praised his big 200-pound renter. Ralph Seldosser: "I tell you we've got. an all-American . . . Sehlosser, our center.” Five minutes later. Muggy remarked again: Sehlosser is an all-American ... I tell you he’s an all-American. Bryant played good ball, too.” Bryant, you'll remember, was that big 2!it> pound Gonzaga left tackle who boomed in on so many plays. An other standout in the Zag forward wall was Don Lansing, the two year veteran end and captain. Opinion of Cecil llare, the liall Imeli, while comparing Oregon's grid machine with tin- strong St. Mail's Gaels: “St. Mary's had a better line. Oregon better hacks. Oregon backs were more t ricki. St. .Mari's steam-rollered over us." About Oregon's chances of play ing in a certain stadium in a. cen tain big game on New Year's dm | "We want Oregon to go to the V '.’ We're sorry if it knocks you out of it.” Our own humble Opinion: A team can’t be keyed up for every game of the season, and a letdown some Saturday during the season is in evitable. The Ducks went through a very natural psychological cave in Saturday against their fir. t non conference opponent. And take it from the Oregnns themselves. Gon zaga. had a club capable of knock ing over more than one coast con ference team on a given Saturday afternoon. The Zag line looked belter than the Webfoot forwards and on practically all passes had Oregon receivers covered, whereas I lie Duck pass defense after three good Saturday.- became a virtual or.'- jt tine -dh > mat.6 ica\ -audgeo ftruig the hall. i (meaning also Jim Harris and Dick Horne, two Compton footballers who came with Berry I, were per suaded by Bob Parke that Oregon was the best place for us.” Tile Bob Parke mentioned by Berry is the same Parke who held the national javelin record and was chosen all-coast halfback a few years ago, while attending the Uni versity of Oregon. The conversation then shifted to topics on the grid front. Berry was asked how he happened to catch the touchdown pass intended for Jim Harris in the USC game. "I couldn't go out very far, cause we were too close to the goal line," said Buck. “Naturally I couldn't stand still, so I decided to back Jim up. The pass was over Jim’s head and light in my arms over the goal line." Nevertheless, Buck claims his greatest thrill in football is not catching passes or running for touchdowns, but tackling oppos ing ball-carriers; he loves the bodily contact. On the field Berry makes an interesting study. He weighs 185 pounds and is 5 feet !» inches tall. Although he is of broad, muscular build, lit' possesses what is known to tin' coaching fraternity as snake hips, which allow loose-jointed ac tion. Off the field John is a perfect gentleman; always minding his own business, always courteous and affable. He is well liked by his fellow schoolmates, and justly so. Although a football star, Berry is majoring in physical education with the hope that he will some hay be a professional baseball play er. and later a coach. Speaking of baseball, that's another one of his accomplishments. He's a star out fielder and intends to go out for Oregon's nine the first chance he has. "Basketball.1 played for t ompton. and hope to compete up here also," replied Berry in answer to a query concerning the hoop sport. Buck failed to mention that he won all state honors as a guard on Compton’s quintet, but Jim Har ris. who was on the same squad, Hilt ml if Hi fluff Wit iiU'.,e,,.ot .....

Cali fornia scored her first 1939 win in defeating Washington Slate, 13 tc 7; Oregon State whipped the Uni versity of Washington eleven for the third straight time, this game also in a 13-7 score; and UCLA knocked down Montana’s ears with a 20-t) shellacking.

UCLABruins Are Next on Grid Slate — I: (Contrmted from cage one) The home fans’ stock went up at least 50 per cent when Little Jay . scampered around left end to the Gonzaga 24 and a first down. There were still nine and one-half minutes to play. Then for some reason unknown, these end plays stopped. Frank Emmons hit the solid center of the line for three, and it was second and seven. With the ball on the Gonzaga 21, three passes came out of the Duck bag in a row. Smith threw over Bill Regner’s head in the end zone, then he threw out of reach of Graybeal's outstretched hands over | the goal line. Then in desperation, on the last down, a third pass was, just too long for Reginato to handle. All was over than for the Olivermen. for it was their last scoring opportunity. Kick Backfires The setup for the winning touch down of Gonzaga's was a question I able quick kick of Len Isberg, made on the second play after the Zag kickoff. Center Tom Lee had kicked off to the Oregon 12, where j it was returned by Anderson to j the 35. Isberg came in the game, lost one yard, then tried a quick kick from his own 34 on a play called by the quarterback. The fast • charging center of the defensive line boomed through like a steam- | I roller, and blocked the kick. I Bud Nestor apparently had the ball in his arms, but the referee j ruled that a Gonzaga player had his body over the ball, and it was the Zag ball on the Oregon 24%. j Canadeo threw his second touch down pass a few plays later, and ■ there were the 12 points.

For that evening, the Ducklings clash with the University of Washington Babes on Hayward field in a game that will definitely show whether they possess the “stuff” of which future varsity teams are made. The frosh took a tough 19-0 lick ing from Oregon State’s rooks in their college opener just a little over a week ago. Since then, Coach John Warren has thoroughly drilled the squad as well as indi vidual players in blocking, tackl ing, and play timing. In fact he spent all last week locating and correcting weak spots in his squad’s attack. In Friday’s clash, the Ducklings will have every op portunity to open up and play a worthy brand of football. Heavy Team "Pest” Welch, Babes mentor, will field one of the largest fresh man elevens ever turned out at the University of Washington. Av erage weight of his starting team is 205 pounds to the man. Linemen alone average 212 pounds, while the backs total 192. According to and ten-yard runs by Johnny Berry. Steve Anderson made his ap pearance right after Oregon's touchdown. He kicked off to the Zag seven. When his team got the ball he made seven yards by re versing the entire field after be ing chased back a few yards. He made four, one, and eight, then quick kicked for 41 yards after a 15-yard penalty for holding. It was an excellent bit of offensive play for Anderson. Tex Oliver put the Gonzaga game behind him in a hurry, and went right to work yesterday af ternoon on UCLA plays. He had the boys working like mad in the driving rain, trying to stop "Kenny Washington” and "Jackie Robin son,” Steve Anderson and Don Ma bee. A chalk talk was held after practice in the gym. and another scrimmage is on schedule for to day, rain or shine.
