Bal»c contest on Hayward Held
spells “make or break” for honest
John Warren’s crew this year.
With only a three-game schedule,
and one contest already out of the
waif, the freshmen must find
themselves this p.m. if they are,
to turn in a successful season. If
they lose to the Seattleites, the
season will end on a sour note.
In the first rook contest, which
the little Orangemen won by a 19
to-0 score, the Ducklings present
ed a badly disorganized team.
Since, then, however, Headman
Warren and his crew have worked
hard on fundamentals, blocking
and tackling, and the frosh team
that takes the field tonight should
be a much more efficient machine.
....And it will need to be, too, if
it is to smash the tough Babes,
and spin the Duckling wheel of
fortune to a different number.
* * *
A boy who will bear watching
tonight is Wayne (Butch I Nelson.
185-pound Salem pride and the
At the start of the Duckling
season, this kid Nelson walked
over to John Warren and said:
“Coach, there may be lots of com
petition out there, but I'm going
to make this ball club.”
This tickled the Honest One, and
he marked down Nelson as a boy
Well, Nelson, a fiery kid with
lots of confidence, was just as good
as his word. A hard blocker and
tackier, he worked his way up to
first string, and no one is happier
than Warren that Nelson has
shown enough ability to rate a
Other publicized freshmen you
fans can look over tonight are
Duke Iverson, burly fullback;
Louie Baum, flashy halfback from
Pittsburg; John Bjork, brother of
Oregon's famous Del; Dick Ash

from Johnstown, Pennsylvania and
the U. S. Navy; Lou Butkovieh.
rangy end; John Stromberg, guard
from Seattle; Jim Shepherd, high
stepping half from White Bear,
Minnesota (if he is able to play),
and Bob Withers, hard-hitting boy
from Grant .... and yes, there
are lots of others, too.

Publicity from the south (and
reams of it arc being sent out), says
this guy Jackie Robinson can score
a touchdown "quicker than you can
say Jack Robinson.”
Robinson, you know, is one of
the ace LCLAN Negroes who will
try to romp through the hig Web
foot team in Los Angeles this
Saturday. Kenny Washington is
If you dig into Robinson's re
cord at Pasadena jaysee, you will
see that these publicity men and
C'al sport writers aren’t far wrong
about his ability to lug the leather.
At Pasadena in his first col
legiate term, Robinson amassed 131
points. In 1937, he was out of
competition with a broken ankle.,
Strangely enough, however, Rob
inson has failed to score a touch
down this year. Oh, yes, he's
been a big star so far. In fact,
he's virtually run wild against
every team he’s faced, but most I
of his running has taken the ball
to within striking position of
the opponent's goal line only. Once j
near the shadows of the goalposts,
Washington, Robinson's fellow
“shadow”, has taken over and
scored the touchdowns.
Robinson's yardage average is
really amazing, in spite of the fact
that he hasn’t scored. Cold, plain
figures reveal that the Pasadena
jitterbug has carried the apple only
16 times from scrimmage in the
season's first three contests
against Texas Christian, Washing
ton, and Stanford.
But these 16 sorties have result
ed in an average gain of slightly
more than 10 yards. And bov
that's going some.

Ducklings Meet Husky Babes on Hayward Field Tonight
Bujan, Nelson Will
Start in Backfield
By RAY SCHRICK
John Warren’s frosh face an all
important football date tonight
when they clash with “Pest"
Welch's strong University of
Washington Babes under the light?
of Hayward field. The contest
which has been set for 8 o’clock
will be second of the season for
i the Ducklings and their first game
on the local gridiron.
In their only other contest War
ren's eleven bowed to the OSC
rooks, 19-to-9. Tonight, with twe
week's practice under their belts,
they will be fighting to wipe out
the stain of that defeat.
Honest John’s probable starting
line will include Louis Butkevich,
left end; Johnny Bjork. left tackle;
Steve Bodncr, left guard; Nick
Dallas, center; John Stromberg,
right guard; Dick Ashcome, right
tackle; and Ralph Davis, right end.
In the backfield will be “Butch”
Nelson at quarterback; Louis
Baum at left half, George Bujan
at right half, and Duke Iverson at
Warren announced that Jim
Shepherd, injured left halfback,
might start in place of Baum if
his sore foot is sufficiently healed.
He also indicated that Roy Ell,
star fullback, who has been out of
competition with a strained leg
ligament, may see "a little” action.
The frosh will be outweighed 12
pounds to the man for the con
test. Welch’s aggregation, one of
the heaviest turned out at Wash
ington, has an overall average of
20f> pounds to Oregon’s 193. The
lines square off at 212 for the
Babes and 195 for the Ducklings.
Probable slaa-ting Washington
lineup places Leon Brigham at left
end, Thron Riggs at left tackle,
Edward Kebulsek at left guard,
William Little at center, Robert
Friedman at right guard, Charlie
Falk at light tackle, Walt Harri
son at right end, Les Harrison at
quarterback, Peter Sussex at left
halfback, Casimir Pominek at
right halfback, and Doug Smith
Warren led his chargers through
one final dress drill last night on
Hayward field. The Babes are
scheduled to arrive in Eugene at

Coach Babe Morrell's strategy
has been to use Robinson more or
less in the role of a decoy for
Washington, but word leaks out
from the south that this is chang
ed now . . . and that Robinson has
been given more plays.
If this is true, Oliver's boys will
have a busy afternoon watching
the dusky speedboy on those fear
ed man-in-motion UCLA plays.

Phi Delts Defeat
Canard Club Team
By 6-to-0 Score
I5.V BERNIK ENGEL
Three scoreless ties featured
I yesterday’s opening round of in
tramural touch football.
Phi Delta Theta dealt the Can
j ard club a 6-to-0 defeat for the
| only scoring in the round. Games
tied included: Zeta hall-Chi Psi;
Beta Theta Pi-Sigma Phi Epsilon;
j and Gamma hall - Alpha Tail
After five minutes of see-saw
battling in the first half, the Phi
Delt’s Paul Jackson took a pass
and ran it from his own 30 to the
Canard 40. The next three downs
saw the ball move to the club’s
five. Shipley took a pass in the
end zone to ring' up six points. The
try for point was completed but
ruled no-good because the Phi
Delts were offside.
Late in the last half the Canard
nine put up a tough fight to stave
off another rush by the Phi Delt
The Zeta hall-Chi Psi clash was
a thriller all the way. Long passes
I stood out in contrast with the
short heaves featured in othei con
tests. In the closing minute of tin1
game, Carlo Apa' of the Zetas in
tercepted a pass behind his own
goal line, lie was touched behind
the line, but the play was ruled
not a touchback because Apa had
not run with the ball.
Game Is Thriller
Just as in the other games, the
Beta-Sig Ep melee became a thrill
er on the last few downs. With
half a minute left to play, the
Betas were stopped on downs on
the Sig Ep ten. Waits of the Sig
Kps got off a poor kick, and the
ball was downed on the Sig Ep
fifteen. MeGnwn of the Betas fail
ot last year, has left school and is
working for his father in Ashland.
Hardy came back to Oregon this
year to study law, but had to give
it up iso I'm told i when he was
informed that lie couldn't take law
it he didn’t stay in school spring
term. Well, Hardy is a Detroit
Tiger farmhand, and must report
to Beaumont for spring training.
His choice, therefore, was base
ball lor alter all, he and his wile,
must live on what his "pay arm"
I ed in his try ior a field goal as
the horn sounded to end the game.
Hay Graham’s triple threat tac
tics sparked his Gamma hall
j teammates to a strong offensive
against the ATO nine.
Campo of the Gammas intercept
i ed an ATO pass on his own ten
with but two minutes left in the
game. Graham kicked to his own
40, where the whistle stopped ac
tion a few plays later. Stan Buck,
brother of Oregon's sprinter, Jim
Buck, led his ATO fellow’s with his
I speedy running.

Yeomen, Pi Kaps
In Initial Tilts
Playing with a five-man team
instead of the customary seven
man outfit, the Yeomen fought
their way to a 2-to-l victory over
the Pi Kappa Alphas in one of the (
first round matches of the intra- ■
mural water polo tournament yes
terday in the men's pool.
What the Yeomen lacked in
numbers, they made up in fight,
for most of the play during the
game was near the Pi Kap goal.
Both Yeomen goals came in the
first half and were scored by Sand
ers. The second half of the fray
found the Yeomen a litjde more
on the defensive. In fact, the Pi
Kaps broke through in this half to
Phi Psis Powerful
In the only other match of the
day, the Phi Kappa Psis displayed
a powerful and well-balanced team
that was too much for the Sigma
Led by Sleeter, who alone scored
four points, the Phi Psis chalked
up an 8-to-0 margin of victory.
The millrace boys had virtual con
trol of the ball throughout the
game and scored almost at will
near the end of the fray.
In the other scheduled matches
of the day, the Sigma Chis won on
a default from the Delta Upsilon
team, and the Theta Chis won a
similar victory over Omega hall.
Four more matches are sched
uled for today. The Chis Psis are
to play the Alpha hall team, Camp
bell co-op to meet Gamma hall,
Sigma Phi Epsilon to tangle with
Sigma Nu, and Sigma Alpha Mu
to face Zeta hall.

Olivermen Are Silent
And Grim at Train Time
By RAY FOSTER
Oregon's traveling football team of 34 men arrives in Los Angeles
this morning, to be greeted by much cooler weather than they faced
four weeks ago for the Southern Cal game. A workout will be held
in the Memorial coliseum this afternoon, then rest till game time at
2:15 p.m. Saturday. About 26 hours on the train should make them
willing to rest.
Now if you happened to be down at the depot Wednesday night
about 10 p.m., you probably saw 34 ,

it by the silent, grim appearance.
Instead of the flashy suits worn
to the Cal game a couple of weeks
ago. the boys sported their cords
and sweaters this time.
Only member to talk was “Irish"
Denny Donovan. He had a big grin
as he said that the team was going
down with the idea that they would
win, and that he had an idea that
they weren't going to be disap

Bill Regner had a hard time get

they could think of. One happy
young fellow was Willie Reynolds,
who will be back in the old stamp

from Pomona jaysee and will have
his parents watching for little Wil
lie to get in that game.
The Bruins still rule the favor
ites, although by game time the
odds may dwindle down to almost
even money. Another expert to
boost the southern team is Coach
Tiny Thornhill of Stanford. Tiny
told a writer in the Daily Bruin
that “The Bruin should be able to
