If any college football coach in
the country thinks dame fortune!
handed him worries on the platter
he ought to hear of one Stuart
Marsee who coaches Waldport high
in Lincoln county. Or he might
look up several other mentors of
teams in that coast town’s area.
After graduating from Oregon
last spring, red-thatched Mr. Mar
sec accepted a job of teaching at
Waldport, with coaching among
his duties, and he's found out what
it is to teach football from the
He found out that a turnout of
16 men there is tremendous.
Only three of his boys had ever
played football before.
The team went into its first
game with only 12 hours of ex
perience behind it, and that was
three weeks after school started.
Let’s let Stu analyze it: “I of
ten wondered why it was necessary
for varsity coaches to spend so
much time on fundamentals, and
why so few small town boys made
good ii) football. I think I have the
answer in part.
He Sees ’Em Anyway
"In most of the union schools
of Lincoln county, and I believe
the state as a whole, the last pe
riod (45 minutes) or possibly two
periods are devoted to football and
gym, supposedly under the leader
ship of one instructor. By the time
my boys are dressed and on the
field which is one-fourth of a mile
from the gym it is 3 o'clock. This
gives from 30 to 40 minutes on tt)e
field and then the boys must re
turn and dress to leave on the
school bus at 4.”
“. . . no wonder the college coach
sheds tears when he gets a likely
looking farm youth only to find he
doesn't know a darn thing about
football. He doesn't know what a
good cry is.”
Don't write Coach Stuart Mar
see down as a moaner though for
he’s really a cheerful chap and al
ways looking out for the other guy.
Stuart speaks well of Nello Gio
vanini, Webfoot guard of last
year, who is a rival coach in Lin
coln county at Toledo high.
"Nello uses Tex Oliver's style
to good advantage and has the
only truly first rate team I have
seen over here.” It might interest
you to know that Nello's team is
unbeaten and untied and has
bowled over everything in sight.
Jackie’s a Wow!
Jackie Robinson danced and pin
wheeled and scampered his way to
two touchdowns against Oregon
Saturday—enough to end any Rose
Bowl talk in Bugene, And he made
such trained observers as Bruce
Hamby, the team’s publicity man,
declare “he’s the speediest and
trickiest back 1 ever saw.” But a
lot of the Oregonians who saw Lhe
UCLA Bruins slicker Oregon, 16
to 6, in a game of left-handed foot
ball, claim he's not as valuable a
man as Kenny Washington, the
other negro baekfield ace.
Kenny, it seems, is more of an
all around man, blocking, passing,
tackling, etc., while Jackie is what
they term a trackman playing
football. You put speed with some
of the greatest, shiftiest hip swing

Now that's not a tournament

an eight handicap, receive the ap
proval of one’s country club, and
then obtain an OK from the wo- I
men's state golf association. Mar

Marion McDougal represent Port
land and Oregon with the cream
of the feminine golf world.
Best Is 77
This is fair warning before you
challenge her to a golf game. She
has an eight handicap, plays con
sistently in the low eighties at
Alderwood Country club, her home
course, and 77 is her best score.
Margie comes from a long lino
of golfers. Her father and mother,
who came directly from the land
where the royal game of golf was
originated, can still hold their own
on the fairways. Margaret's bro
thers, both Phi Delts from Oregon,
shoot in the seventies.
She gives her reason for switch- i
ing from tennis to golf at the age
I of 11 as self defense.
“If your family talked golf from
morning till night, you would just
have to learn to play, or forever
hold your peace,’’ she exclaimed.

Margie is active in University

Frosh Regulars and Varsity Reserves
Move to Hayward Field for Practice
Game; Len Isberg Shines
By RAY FOSTER
Slam bang football was the dish for the second night in a row for
varsity second-strings and frosh regulars, who held a miniature game
on Hayward field yesterday afternoon before empty stands.
After 10 minutes of standstill ball, the varsity opened up on the
first year men, and scored a couple cf touchdowns in quick succession.
The backfield combination of Chet Haliski, Len Isberg, Don Maoee, and
Steve Fowler was shoved backwards about 20 yards before it could
find holes through the much im
proved freshman line.
Isberg started firing passes after
the line plays had bogged, and
tossed a winning one to Ted Home,
who made a spectacular runnin
catch over the head of the fros
right half and scampered to pay
territory. The play was good for
about 60 yards all told.
Isberg Looks Good
Len was the big gun going
through the line, too, for he made
another touchdown on fancy step
