Owner of the speediest football
legs on the coast is Jackie Robin
son, UCLA’s halfback negro sen
sation, who'll be out there on Los
Angeles turf searing the Oregon
Webfoots to death this afternoon.
Bill Hayward saw Jackie last
fall and pronounced him a streak
of greased lightning in football
togs. A member of the Webfoot
coaching staff who scouted the
Bruins this year won't let his name
be used on a quotation but he says
the Bruin backfield star, a first
year man by the way, is “the fast
est football player I ever saw,”
which is really covering a lot of
It's no secret that Tex Oliver
talked Jackie Robinson and Kenny
Washington to his Ducks all week.
He figures that to stop the UCLA
clan means to bottle up that pair
of negro flashes, and defensive
practice for today's game occupied
a lot of Oliver’s preparations. He
gave the reserves Bruin plays,
named a couple of the Dusks Bob
inson and Washington, and told the
varsity to stop ’em. Ycssir Mack
Robinson's little brother Jackie is
going to meet a lot of Webfoots
Tiny Thornhill of Stanford goes
even farther than calling Jackie
the coast’s speediest and trickiest
hack. In the UCLA Bruin, campus
paper, he’s quoted as comparing
Jackie with Red Grange and Ernie
Nevers who you'll recollect are on
some authority's all-time all

One possible defect in the Bruin
offe.nse is the fact that Jackie
Robinson is rarely used as a block
er when someone else carries the
ball. They use him as a decoy or
man in motion. Won't that weak

sacrifice a blocker that way? Well,
Mike Mikulak, the Webfoot back
field coach, has seen Babe Morrell's
gang in action and we’ll let him

Tex Oliver talked Robinson and
Washington all week to his Orc
gons, but don't go away with the
conclusion he figures UCLA has
a two-man team. It just means
that they have to be stopped or
Oregon will need a flock of touch
downs to win. Kenny Washington
was pretty well checked on Bay
ward field last year but the Web
foots were nevertheless lucky to
squeeze out ahead, 14 to 12, in a
Flash Jackie Robinson hasn't
scored a touchdown in conference
play nor has he played a complete
game. In fact Mikulak ventured to
say the boy might not play much
over 30 minutes against Oregon.
But the things he has done and can
do in a half hour hasn’t helped Tex
Oliver's sleep any.
Let's let Scout Mike Mikulak
tell more about the team Oregon
plays this afternoon. After all it
is right on top of the conference

Phi Psi Nine

By BERNARD ENGEL
Two victories, a tie, and a de
fault featured yesterday's intra
mural touch football slate.
Kappa Sigma showed a wcll
balanced team in dropping Sherry
Ross hall, 12 to 0; Phi Kappa Psi
edged out a 6 to 0 decision over
Delta Tau Delta; Sigma hall and
the SAE’s fought to a scoreless tie
and the DU-Sigma Chi clash was
postponed because of a pledge
walkout in the Delta house.
One minute alter the game
started, the Kappa Sigs were on
the hall’s four-yard line. Sherry
Ross held off this thrust but a few
minutes later, McAuliffe of the
Sigs threw from the Sherry Ross
30 to Lansing on the three, who
carried the ball over.
The McAuliffe-Lansing combina
tion clicked again early in the seo
ind half. With the ball on the hall
Lwu, McAuliffe whipped a pass in
the flat for the second touchdown.
Phi Kappa Psi and Delta Tau
Delta staged a wide-open battle.
Rohner of the Phi Psis caught a
long pass in the first moments of
the second half to register six
points. Although the Delta wore
within sneezing distance of the
Phi Psi goal twice in the last five
minutes, the Phi Psis held tight.
With the dormitory hoys play

Sigina hall game ended in the sea
son’s fourth scoreless tie. Shackle

Writes from UCLA Front
Editor’s note: We're presenting an inside story from one of
the members of the Oregon team in Los Angeles, Halfback Bob
Smith, whose interests apart from football lie partly in journal
ism. Bob wired for us to rewrite his story but we give it to you
as is and with no apologies.
By BOB (LEFTY) SMITH
WITH THE OREGON TEAM, Los Angeles, Oct. 27—(Special
to the Emerald ) — -We had a workout this afternoon with a fair
crowd on hand. L. H. Gregory of the Oregonian was there with
the Los Angeles sports writers. Bobby Blenkinsop was at
the train to meet us and will return with the team.
We’re staying at the Chapman Park hotel, which is next to
the Brown Derby (so the bell boy tells me). We stayed at the
Chancellor last time but the game resulted in a tie so we moved.
Looking for a hotel with victory.
Had a chalk talk at five today, then dinner. At seven we went
to the show, “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.”
We never read the papers before the game but the bell hop
(we should keep this boy) told me they expect a very large
crowd for the game. Tex doesn’t feel that the players can
benefit from reading reports on the games; on this trip, though
the fellows are on the school books. Even Jay is involved with
“Behind the Doctor.” John Day Officer usually sets the week
end for one of our good supporters and this one is for Blenk.
That pre-game tenseness is here and the fellows are ready for
this game. Borrowing a term from Joe Huston that really fits.
Alter preparing all details for the game we feel that “we’re set.”

Ky AL LEKdlC
Last week’s diggings didn't pan
out so lint on account of the local
team doing us dirt. Henceforth, and
from here on in, all games played
by Oregon will'not be calculated in
the week’s predictions as the writ
er, being blessed with more school
spirit than brains, tends to pull his
punches when tlie "dope” comes
too close to home. So after this
Oregon’s playing will not be an
official part of the Dope's bucket.
On the other two games last
week we called them one hundred
per cent exactly correct. A feat not
lo be sneezed at, and if the per
entage keeps up to that level, A1
will he able to enter some of the
contests and walk off with some
coffin nails (lire sticks to you),
last week there were only three
conference games, but all eight
learns will be playing this week to
:ry to lower a few percentages.
I our I op toast
1’our out of t!ie eight conference
teams have 1000 per cent batting
averages this week. Two of tlnise
teams will meet, an.I the other two
will have an easier time of it. This
is the first time that two Oregon
teams have been at the top in con
ference ratings, and they will fur
nish a lot of tough competition for
the brut hern from the north and
[torn the south.
Now that till tin' dope, excuses,
jinxes, ratings, percentages, and
information is calculated for the
our games, Al has drawn his own

Two Scores Result
John Warren's Crew Makes One Drive

Babes Show Plunging Power
By RAY SMITH
John Warren's frosh just didn't have "the stuff" last night.
The Oregon boys threw everything they had at the Babes in an
effort to stop “Pest” Welch's powerhouse aggregation, but the Wash

Both other scores came as the

it back seven yards to the 25. Su
