The (Jonzaga defeat is a thing
of the past to Tex Oliver and his
Webfoots for they’ve got more im
mediate worries in the form of a
tough gang of UCLA Bruins and
their Kenny Washington a n d
Jackin Robinson, but we’re pre- j
senting the following incident just!
to show how seriously the Oliver
family takes its football.
At approximately 4:15 o'clock
Saturday afternoon one of the Em
erald's feminine operatives hap
pened to be passing the Oliver resi
dence where Tex's little daughter
of less than one year had been
quietly resting on the front porch.
It seems that down on Hayward
field at approximately the same
hour and minute the struggling
Gonzaga boys connected on their!
second touchdown pass of the j
game — which beat Oregon, 12 to :
7. Call it clairvoyance, coincidence,
growing pains, or what ye may,!
but we're told that little Oliver
gal broke into a spell of the most,
gosh-awful squawling you ever
heard and Mama Oliver had to
come to the rescue.

To hoar poor John Warren speak
of the frosh football team’s
chances of trimming the Washing
ton Babes here Friday night . . . .
well, it’s just a depressing thought.
What do the Babes have?
“Everything!" boomed out Hon
est John, and with that weighty
explanation off his chest he told
of two 225 pound tackles the Duck
lings are going to have to move
out to make any yardage. In case
that didn't sound convincing he
tossed in news that the Babes will
also sport a 225' pound fullback.
Funny thing about football.
While the varsity game is becom
ing more and more commercializ
ed and more and more a business,
the frosh are actually becoming
de-emphasized. This fall, for in
stance, they cut the Duckling grid
schedule to only three games
half a season in order that the
first year boys might have more
time to study and to concentrate
on getting ready for their sopho
more days on the varsity. And
another thing, the frosh don’t use
any scouting of the enemy.

Skipper Warren, “no point in that

Not many seasons ago Colonel
Bill Hayward was famous as Ore
gon’s head football trainer l*ccauso
he turned out so many funny look
ing braces and bandages which al
lowed Webfoots with broken bones
to actually sail into combat with
little fear of further injury. We'd
like to mention that while capable
Bob (John Day) Officer has been
head trainer and chief patch-up
man for a couple of seasons, Bill’s
fertile imagination in regards lo
these patent braces and supports
has been active and helpful in the
Oregon dressing room.
One of Bill’s best jobs was sev
eral seasons back when he rigged
up Oregon’s all-Coast tackle Bill
Morgan so he could play one game
with a pair of broken hands. Mor
gan dashed around that day wav
ing two big white hamlike band
ages which covered his forearms
and played one of ttie best games
of his career.
Hayward was laughing about il
the other day. Bald he received
about a thousand letters asking all
about those two light bandages.
One of the best sportsmanlike ges
tures ever made between Oregon !
and Oregon State in athletics was

Oregon's Quinn Sold
To Chicago Cubs;
Stars at Vancouver
By GEORGE PASERO
Co-Sports Editor, Oregon Daily Emerald
There's quite a story behind the diamond success of big. blond,
Wimpy Quinn, the Chicago Cubs’ $5000 piece of baseball property.
During his years in the Oregon bushes and during his sojourn as
a University of Oregon frosh slugger, big Wimpy (J. Wellington, to
some of you) was hailed as a sure-fire pro prospect. Visiting scouts
always made it a point to look him over.
The same was true in Wimpy's sophomore year on the Oregon
varsuy. i ne iau Slugger wilii uie
large hands and wrists was the
talk of the northwest conference,
easily the outstanding third-base
man of the league. His bullet-like
pegs to First-sacker Busher Smith
cut off sure hits, and his long
distance clouting drove pitchers
frantic. His fielding, too, was okay.
Then came his second year on
the Oregon varsity, and with it,
the fall in his baseball fortunes. At
the start of the season, diamond
devotees considered him the class
of the circuit, predicted a great
season for him.
Big Wimpy wanted to have that
big season, for he entertained an
idea of signing a pro contract at
the end of that junior year, just
as the great Joe Gordon had done.
Wimpy knew well the bargain val
ue of a final, top-flight varsity sea
son, especially when talking terms
with a cautious scout.
But things went wrong from the
start. J. Wellington didn’t have
that big season. In fact he had a
rather poor season. His batting
average dropped a few notches,
and his fielding was anything but
spectacular. In short, he just
ivasn t the old Quinn, the boy who
made pitchers duck.
As a consequence, scouts began
to shy off Quinn like Myrna Loy
tvould autograph hunters. They'd
talk to Ford Mullen, Gale Smith,
and Pitcher Bob Hardy, but they
wouldn’t even go near Quinn.
Ail this might have discouraged
in ordinary ball player, but not
3uinn. He was no ordinary player.
He believed he was good enough,
ind now, more than ever, was de
:ermined he'd make good in the
fie told Coach Hobson so last
'P’ing, rejected the captaincy of
he 1940 baseball team, and wrote
to Bob Brown, the Vancouver,
B. C., basebal lmagnate who owned
the franchise of the Vancouver
Capilanos of the Western Inter
national league, a class B outfit.
Brown knew Quinn well. In fact
the big Oregonian had played a
couple of seasons for Brown when
Brown ran the old Vancouver city
For Vancouver, Wimpy began
bombing the ball again. He gave
the park fences a battering all
summer and was a sensation. So
much so, in fact, that the Chicago
Cubs paid $5,000 for him. Next
year, he goes south to the spring
training camp of the Los Angeles
Angels of the coast league, a Cub
farm, but he probably will be sent
back to Vancouver to play first
Play First Base?
Why first base ? Because that’s
the position the Cubs think he is
fitted for. If you remember,
Quinn’s stay at third has always
been a subject for controversy.
Last year, Umpire Spec Burke
said he ought to be a pitcher be
cause of his strong arm. Buck Bail
ey, WSC's one-man circus coach,
said Quinn was a natural outfield
er; and both concurred that he
wasn’t a natural third baseman.
Both men, however, overlooked
the first base position. Quinn is
eager to try it. ... I think he’ll
make it. Certainly, he'll play some
where. His remarkable slugging
is insurance of that.
