    Duck Tracks
By KEN CHRISTIANSON, Co-Editor of Sports
Oregon has one loss placed to its
discredit following the 13 to 0 de
feat from Stanford, and that same
loss coupled with another possible
one will automatically toss the
Webfoots out of any possible Rose
Bowl consideration.
Not that any Rose Bowl talk
was prevailing on the Oregon cam
pus, but this one defeat, and that
in the conference opener, will be
sufficient to curb any such talk for
a time. However, that game
showed that the Webfoot offensive
has possibilities which were no
ticeable to Oregon students in the
San Diego Marine game.
In seven plays, the Ducks moved
from their own 45-yard line in the
opening quarter of the game to the
Stanford 11. About that time sev
eral things happened, all of which
combined to make Oregon look and
act as Henry Armstrong did fol
lowing 15 rounds with Fritzie
Zivic. Much of the fight was taken
out of them.
Injuries Hit
Things didn't look too good for
Oregon after Buck Berry dropped
a pass when he was in the clear
near the Stanford 15. Then on the
next play, Berry drove 16 yards to
the Indian 11, fumbled, and the
breaks went against Oregon.
Shortly after that, Big Jim Stu
art was knocked cold, Dick Home
took the count, Berry was also
knocked out, and these injuries to
the key men in the Oregon defense
and offense left them demoralized.
Berry remained in a San Francisco
hospital for observation following
the game but will probably be used
in the Washington game.
Len Isberg injured his back dur
ing the game, but it is expected
that most of these players will be
ready for action Saturday. Stuart,
however, suffers from occasional
headaches—something of an after
math of the game. Should Berry
be unable to play Saturday it will
be Tommy Roblin, probably, who
will open at left half.
Backs Look Good
Roblin showed to advantage with
both his running and unexpected
brilliant kicking. Curt Mecham
had an average of better than 40
yards on his kicking attempts to
rank well with that of Norm
Standlee, Stanford’s fullback.
Standlee averaged about 46 yards
on each of his kicks but was held
to a smaller yardage gain by rush
ing than was Oregon’s Marsh
Stenstrom. Stenstrom had a rush
ing average of about six yards per
try, while Standlee’s was only
about two and a half.
End Bill Regner was acclaimed
the best end on the field by the As
sociated radio announcer. Each of

the other of the players who
got into the game acquitted them
selves well according to the Oregon
coaching staff. In the line, Sopho
mores Steve Bodner, Dick Ashcom,
and Ed Moshofsky looked prom
ising for Oregon lines to come.
Taylor Was Effective
This Chuck Taylor, Stanford left
guard, was detrimental to both the
Webfoot attack and defense—he
smashed through the Oregon line
time and again. But from the first
quarter on, Oregon was not too ef
fective with its running attack and
its passing attack is better left
unsaid. No completions were made
in nine attempts.
Stanford made its first touch
down on passes and a ground at
tack, and its second strictly on a
running attack. Much has been said
about Stanford taking it easy in
the second half, but a 13-point lead
is hardly a lead on which to coast
for the duration of the game. The
Indians defeated San Francisco 27
to 0 so it must have been that the
Webfoot defense rallied in that sec
ond half, else Stanford would have
scored more.
Oregon's pass defense worked
well during the major portion of
the game. The Ducks intercepted
three passes against Stanford’s one
and dropped the runner usually af
ter the completion with little or
no additional gain.
Defense Set Wrong
Oliver stated that it was possi
ble that he had set the Oregon
defense wrong and didn't an
ticipate the full potentialities of
the Shaughnessy system. Oregon
simply made the mistakes a
green team sometimes makes and
Stanford capitalized on them, while
Oregon was unable to do the same
with its breaks.
The Oregon coaching staff de
clared that Oregon would, how
ever, be in shape to play the game
which Oregon and Washington are
noted for playing in this particular
game—one featuring a fine brand
of ball.
Oliver and the team appreciated
the turnout which greeted them as
they swung off the train Sunday
at the Southern Pacific depot. This
turnout, according to Oliver means
more to a beaten team than to a
winning one.
Shaughnessy System
Jack McDonald of the San Fran
cisco Call Bulletin recently printed
what he thought to be the origin
of the Shaughnessy system. It
seems that the T formation showed
up in the Chicago Bear system
along in 1925 which was prior to
the time when Shaughnessy's name
was connected in any way with
the Bears.
Red Grange introduced some of
the formations to the T as it was
played by him under Bob Zuppke.
Then the Bears added some flank
ers copied from those used by Al
onzo Stagg while at Chicago uni
versity. Apparently, Shaughnessy
must have added some other inno
vations to the Zuppke-Stagg addi
tions, else the Bears would not
have sought his services during re
cent years.
John Warren's freshman team
this year savors much of the intra
national. From Darien, Connecti
cut comes Jim Vitti, halfback. Oth
ers in the turnout come from Ne
braska, Minnesota, California,
Washington, and all parts of Ore

After Injuries
Break Up Team
Mechaxn, Roblin
Speed Up Oregon;
Stenstrom Shines
Capitalizing on first quarter
breaks that tended to cool off a
red-hot Oregon University gridiron
aggregation, Stanford's eleven
downed the locals 13 to 0 last Sat
urday at Palo Alto in the initial
1940 conference tilt for both teams.
Entering the game on the short
end of 2-1 odds, Coach Tex Oliver's
charges took possession of the ball
on the second play, and for the
next nine minutes it seemed that
the Indian's famed offense of the
week previous was to be short
lived. Instead of witnessing an
Oregon line that was supposed to
spend four full quarters defending
its own goal from the vaunted at
tack of the Stanfords, 22,000 spec
tators were gazing upon a Green
and Yellow forward wall that car
ried the fight.
Writers Like Oregon
Even San Francisco sports writ
ers who had been climbing upon
the Stanford band-wagon all week
after a year’s leave of absence,
were forced to admit that the final
score might have been different
had it not ben for successive in
juries to Oliver's key men during
that hectic opening canto.
The loss of John (Buck) Berry,
offensive threat, and Dick Horne
and Big Jim Stuart, two standout
linemen, at a time when Oregon
was making its bid for honors did
not help the Oliver factor at all.
To the contrary, it appeared to
cause a bog in the Oregon march.
Referee Tunney’s kickoff clip
ping penalty placed Stanford on
its own six-yard mark, from where
Fullback Standlee punted out to
the Oregon 45. Failing to shift as
it did when scouted against the
Marines, Oregon confused the Stan
ford defense at the very stapt.
Stenstrom Gains
Stenstrom picked up 14 yards
through left tackle on a single
wing to the right. Two plays later
Oregon came out of its huddle into
a left formation with Berry crash
ing over left tackle to the Stanford
29 and another first down.
Len Isberg gained three yards on
the spinner play, and then Berry
came around on a reverse to
power-house his way through the
Stanford secondary to the Indian
10 before 220-pound Norm Stand
lee overtook him. Berry fumbled
and Stanford’s Gallarneau and Al
bert recovered the ball.
It was shortly after this that
Berry was kicked in the head, and
had to be removed to the hospital.
A minute or so later both Horne
and Stuart were knocked uncon
scious, and Oregon’s chief threat
of the day had ended.
Kmetovic Puzzles
Stanford’s razzle-dazzle series of
plays began to function, and just
before the period ended Pete
Kmetovic rambled four yards
through the Webfoot right tackle
to score. Albert converted. Stan
ford’s second and last score came
