Best Sign Award
Found Missing
By Its 'Keepers’
Can anyone remember having
a silver loving cup hurled at
them during the week's civil war
of formats vs. informals for the
homecoming dance ?
The trophy given to the wom
en’s living organization for the
most attractive "remember
when” sign has been mislaid by
the homecoming committee.
It could have been thrown in
the waste paper basket along
with the pro and con petitions
the harrassed committee has de
cided, or maybe one of them was
forced to use it for a defense
weapon against some of the
Amazons who wanted .trailing
shirts Saturday evening. Or
maybe some house is still hoard
ing it from last year’s win.
Anyway, the committee sends
out a plea to the freshmen that,
as they scrape the tarnish from
the in-house trophies in prepar
ation for the alums, to keep a
watchful eye out for thus elu
sive loving cup.

Oregon vs. Oregon State for the championship of the north
west, for the titleholder of the state of Oregon, for third place
in the conference, and for the satisfaction of the “home town”
folks. This all will be settled at 2 o’clock this afternoon at Hay
ward field before 20,000 fans.
The Webfoots say they are ready, so do the Beavers. Both
coaches have expressed the idea that their teams are “set”
for the big game. The players feel it too. With both teams in a
confident mood, and only one winner, today 's game should be
a classic, the 43rd meeting since 1894.
Tex Oliver, Duck coach, said he felt that the boys were ready
to put un the best game of the season today. And whenever a
player was approached, his only answer would be a broad smile
and maybe the words, “we’re set.”
Staters In Good Condition
Lon Stiner, Beaver mentor, has said that he feels his team
is in good physical condition and is ready for the vaunted Ore
gon running and passing attack. And whenever a Beaver meets
a Duck on the gridiron, he has that air of confidence that cannot
be denied.
Oregon will be trying to break into the scoring column
against the Beavers for the first time in four years. Three years
running the final has read, 0 for the Duck. After making but
one touchdown a game for the first five games, Oregon opened
up last week to make six all at once against WSC. This high
scoring aggregation may continue to roll today.
Odds on the game favor neither team, a tossup. The Broad
way Bookies say 6 to 5 for the Webfoots. Of the other experts,
three say Oregon State and two vote for Oregon. Locally each
home town favors its own team, all bets even.
Oregon State will have six of its 11 players playing their
last season, and Oregon has 9 of their 11 playing their last game
before a local crowd. One of the best individual duels will be
between Seniors Jay Graybeal of Oregon, and Morrie Kohler,
OSC flashy half. Both are the spark of their teams.
“Left” Bob Smith, Oregon’s all-American candidate, will
perform for the last time on the turf of Hayward field. Working
alongside of him will be the fighting Irishman, Denny Donovan,
the unsung hero who calls the signals from his quarterback post,
and who gets his biggest thrill today, as the acting captain for
his team.
A three-year veteran, Vic Reginato, starts at right end for
the Ducks. Only other lineman to see action in most of his college
career opening the game is Cece Walden, the 213-pound bulwark
of the forward wall, at right guard. Ernie Robertson opens at
the other guard post.
“Cad” Cadenasso opposes a 215-pound stone wall in Johnny
Tsoutsouvas, commonly called “Choo, Choo.” Frank Emmons
at full has for his rival the best all-around player in the Beaver
backfield, Jim Kisselburgh. Jim does the kicking, passing, and %
| good deal of the running for his team.
