In Gridiron Wars
By KEN CHRISTIANSON
Way, way back in 1894, Oregon
began its famous rivalry on the j
gridiron with Oregon State then
called Oregon State Agricultural
college. That was 45 years ago.
Since that time the two schools j
have developed an intensive battle
42 times on the field. Oregon has ■
taken 23 games, Oregon state has
12 to its credit. Seven have ended
in a tie.

In the past three years, Oregon
State has taken three of those 12
games by rolling up 46 points to
the Ducks' lone 0. Folks all over
Oregon and several “prognosticat

drouth of Oregon points and to j
romp across the State goal line i
with a few more points than the

In 1894, Oregon State started
the rivalry with a victory, 18 to 0.
Oregon came back the next year
with a 42 to 0 score. It was the

Three Touch Ball Squads
Hold Spotless Records
By BERNIK ENGEL
Only three touch football teams have remained undefeated and
untied as the schedule moves into the last week of league play Mon
Spotless with three wins are the Sigma Nus in league two. the
Phi Delts in league three; and the Kappa Sigs in League four.
The Kappa Sigs, jauntily attired in battered rooters’ lids, have
proven the most potent scoring machine on the intramural fields thus
far in the season. Their wins in
clude a 19 to 0 victory over Kirk
wood co-op and two 12 to 0 tri
umphs, with Sherry Ross and the
Delts as underdogs in the latter
Clinging to one-touchdown mar
gins, the Sigma Nus have defeat
ed Theta Chi, 14 to 6, Gamma
hal,l 15 to 6, and the Yeomen, 6
to 0. No standout stars are evi
dent but the team, in common
with the other leaders, depends
for its victories on heads-up ball
playing by every man.
Good, steady ball is featured by
the Phi Delt nine. The team has
won all three starts by the score
of 6 to 0. They dropped crews
from Zeta hall, Canard club, and
Most dependent on stars is the!
Gamma hall squad. Without Har
old Chung-Hoon to flip their
passes, the dorm team simply
can’t seem to get going. Once
Chung enters the game, the op
position might as well go home.;
Teams on which to keep a;
“weather eye" include the Betas,
ATOs, and Chi Psis, all of whom;
are undefeated but tied. The Sig
Eps take top honors for stale
mates. The boys have come out
with a tie in each of their 'three
contests to date.

Look for the reddest face, and
if it is not from a case of Cali
fornia sunburn, it will be ours for
calling USC to lose the game in
Wc take pride in that this is the
only column that picks the losers,
but not that we were the the only
column last week to pick the Ore
gon State-USC game wrong.
To lose our perfect record in a
tight pinch would not have been
so bad, but to lose it on a sure
thing must be a sign of old age or
perhaps mental incompetency.
Nevertheless, our percentage is
still low and we have called only
one game wrong.
The games this week should be
easy to call because the field is
getting cut down so that the ball
clubs and those who only try are
becoming more evident.
Everybody is beating California
so Washington might as well. The
Golden Bears haven't shown much
growl yet this year and whether
they have given up or are still try
ing is hard to say but the Huskies
have a chance to get a victory in
before it is too late. The score:
California, nothing; Washington,
If Stanford docs not take a
beating from the 500 and 1 Tro
jans this weekend, A1 will give up

conference race would have little
trouble in making the Redskins
look like something that was left
for the managers to patch up.
The score: Stanford, little; USC,
a little more.
On our own Hayward field the
Beavers are headed for another
bad weekend. The Staters are
probably over here for a big re
