Berg and Hill,
Flag in Eugene
Match Play Set
By JEAN SPEAROW
Two of the nation’s greatest
feminine golf stars, Patty Berg,

coed, and Mrs. Opal Hill, well
known professional star, will be in I
Eugene Friday at the Laurelwood
course to conduct a morning sem
inar in the finer points of divot
digging and an afternoon lab of
more of the same.
Winner of many of the nation's
top-flight tournaments, Miss Berg
last year enrolled at Minnesota,
and there picked up an all-consum
ing interest in football. She re
turned to the golf wars this year,
however, accepting a lucrative of
fer to travel for a well-known
sporting goods firm.
Mrs. Hill, long one of America’s
finest women golfers, teamed up
with Miss Berg, and the two have

'Dead' Letters j
Found in Johnson
Missed your morning mail? Do
you feel that your girl friend or
banker has been neglecting you
lately? Or maybe you think that
the TJ. S. post office department
has gone bankrupt during the cur
rent flood of free political mail
which our congressmen gleefully
send out by the ton.
A more feasible reason for that
missing letter is that it is lying in
a desk drawer in the dean’s offices
of the Administration building. To
date, 30 letters, postcards, airmail
letters, post office notices and bills
addressed to missing or unknown
persons in care of the University
have accumulated. Take a squint

Ducks Watch Beavers
Several of the Webfoot grid
players took advantage of the day
of rest last Saturday and traveled
to Corvallis to get a good look at
the Oregon State Beaver team in
action against the supposedly
strong Idaho Vandals. Although
the Orange ran up an impressive
40-1 score against the hapless Van
dals, their perfonnance failed to
make much Impression on the Ore

worth a damn.”

As you can see, Harris and Ber

Beavers and Johnson didn't care
whether they were a good test or
not—Oregon will beat them. Ash
com played safe— which might be
a wise thing for all of the Beavers’
opponents to do this year.
Team Looks Good
The game with the San Diego
Marines last Friday night gave the
Oregon rooters quite a thrill. The
Webfoots played great early season
ball and the line more than lived
up to the high hopes that were held
for them. Granted that the Ma
rines w<‘re a far lighter outfit, it
is quite something for a team to
hold backs like Hal Boise, Max
Tafoya, and Lowell Kuglish to a
grand total of minus six yards
gained from scrimmuge and at the
same time rip to shreds an oppos
ing line with veterans like Mou
trlef, Johnny Bylaml, and Bill
Thrash scattered through it. The
game showed that Oregon really
has something and that if they can
keep to a fighting pitch during the
tough conference schedule, they
have what it takes to make things
plenty miserable for any of their

Oliver has a fine trio of punters in

Eugene Bank Gives
Recent figures reveal that the
First National bank of Eugene has
been one of the steadiest and
funds and drives of the University
According to Mr. Richard Smith,
president, the bank donated $53,000
to student causes between the
years of 1920 and 1935, and has
given four or five thousand dol
lars each year since that time.
The bank gives work to approxi
mately 27 students each year in
both part and full time jobs, Mr.
Smith said, and of the 04 employees
in the bank, 29 are graduates or
former students at the University.
The bank has also been influen
tial in obtaining jobs for many
others, he said.
