A little bit of luck here and
there and the score possibly would
have read differently Saturday.
Had Oregon completed a couple of
passes which grazed the fingertips
of the intended receiver, Oregon
could as well have tripped the
Washington Huskies.
Again, had a couple of the Web
foot backs been a bit faster, things
could have been different. Curtis
Mecham, the outstanding Oregon
back in the minds of many, was
caught from behind on the seven
yard line as was Marsh Stenstrom
on the 35 after running back a
pass interception.
Oregon combined its pass de
fense with its offense in the game
to amass a greater pass yardage
than the Huskies. Most of Dean
McAdam’s passes were well cov
ered and were intercepted. Ore
gon's pass offense, in itself, was
nothing of which to brag. Only
two passes were completed in 15
Adding the 41 yards from com
pletions with the 73 from inter
ceptions, Oregon outgained Wash
ington in the air department about
31 yards — Washington made 64
yards in the air and 19 from pass
Longest Punt
The biggest surprise of the game
was Len Isberg's long 80-yard kick
from the line of scrimmage. It is
the longest made by an Oregon
back in many a day. This kick was
little more outstanding than the
line play of Oregon’s newest 60
minute man, Rog Johnson, the be
hemoth tackle from San Bernadino.
Johnson played left tackle on
defense and right on offense while
Ed Moshofsky and others were
holding Jim Stuart's place. John
son is not a flashy player, but he
makes a lot of tackles all over the
field and is a steady player.
Stuart played 60 minutes at
right tackle as a sophomore and
the same amount of time as a
junior at left tackle. Ray Segale
was a bulwark in the line every
time one of the Washington backs
came through — especially Jack
Stackpool. Duke Iverson looked
very good at quarterback when
relieving Chet Haliski.
Oregon's blocking and tackling
were none too impressive. When
Washington scored that touch
down, a pass from BUI Gleason to
Bob Vaughan, Oregon was ineffec
tive. Two Webfoots had their
hands on him, and it was finally
Chet Haliski who nailed him on
the goal line.
Vaughan’s Chance
According to Lee Irwin, former
Washington Daily sports editor,
this Vaughan has !been on the
squad three years and Saturday
was his first chance to show much.
John Mizen, the Husky place kick
er, who was in the game little
more than a minute made four of
the 10 Washington points. In
practice last week, he kicked 49
out of 50 through the uprights.
“McAdams and Rudy Mucha
played a great game,” according
to Tex Oliver, head of the Oregon
forces. Oliver also liked the play
ing of Earl YoungloVe at end,
Ernie Steele, the speedball at half
back, and Vaughan. Jay MacDow
ell played a wonderful defensive
Stuart played very little ball, but

Mild Riot Follows
Huskies’ Victory
Isberg's 82-Yard Punt Sets Phelan's
Men Back in First Period; Ducks Lack
Power to Score Near Goal Line
After 60 minutes of watching Washington, plus gobs of "dog"
luck, humble Oregon 10 to 0 in Multnomah stadium Saturday, over
enthusiastic opposing factions in the crowd of 32,000 poured onto the
playing field and tore into each other in a mild frenzy, rivalling that
displayed by the Duck and Husky gridders a few moments earlier.
While a droning radio announcer pleaded frantically with the
mob to keep off the field-—a high
school game was to be played
that night Husky rooters wedged
up to the Duck goal posts and
yanked them down. In the melee
that followed, fists flailed, bottles
flew, and rooters’ lids were
scooped off unsuspecting onlook
ers in the milling crowd.
Riot Moves Out
Portland police had a merry
time trying to disperse the rabble.
However, while action in the sta
dium was defrosting to a simmer,
the center of the mauling had shift
ed out of bounds onto Salmon
This anti-climax added to the
game a splash of color—some per
son says mostly black and blue—
and perhaps the association will
make Webfoot supporters remem
ber more vividly how near Tex
Oliver’s boys came to twisting the
Huskies' tails.
Kicked into a hole by Len Is
berg’s 82-yard punt early in the
struggle, Washington found itself
shoved against its goal during
almost the entire first quarter.
In the second, however, every
thing started flying, including the
ball out of Duck Fullback Marsh
Stenstrom's hands as he banged
into the line on the Oregon 37 af
ter Buck Berry, Webfoot halfback,
had intercepted Dean McAdams'
toss there to halt a Husky splurge.
Washington recovered.
Stenstrom Sprints
Four plays later Oregon rooters
reared up on their feet and roared.
Stenstrom pulled down a Washing
ton pass on the Webfoot 20, and,
in the wake of a devastating
blocking, steamrollered in the
clear to the Huskj 32. There Mc
Adams galloped abreast and
dragged him down. After driving
spasmodically up to the Washing
ton 12, Oregon fizzled and sur
rendered the ball on downs.
Later after stabbing at the Duck
line for 24 yards, McAdams rifled
a 48-yard pass to Earl Younglove,
who was rammed down on the
Oregon 13. On the next play Billy
Gleason flipped a short one to End
Bobby Vaughan, who skipped and
slid away from Ducks “Tippy”
Dyer, halfback and “L’l Abner”
Wilson, center, to score standing
up. Johnny Mizen, end, converted,
all this 17 seconds before the half
In the middle of the third quar
ter, Mizen booted a field goal from
the Oregon 17 to make the count
10 to 0, what was to be the victory
Ducks Threaten
Late in this same period Curt
Mecham, nimble Webfoot halfback,
had Washington fans squirming
and Oregon rooters yelling hoarse
ly, as he cut back over his own
right tackle on a reverse from
Berry, crossed-up his field, then
scooted down the sidelines on a
52-yard jaunt to the Husky 7
where Means and a teammate piled
into him. A fourth down pass
grazed End Dick Horne’s chest,
and Washington cornered the ball
on their 20.
On our merit list for vicious de
fense work is Ray Segale, Web
foot guard, easily the outstanding
lineman on the field. Throttling
play after play the Huskies
boomed at him. Segale made the
much-heralded Washington center,

The scrimmage saw the return
of Brad Ecklund to the lineup. The
Milwaukie fullback came back in
the lineup for his first appearance
at the center position.
Gene Peterson, left end who was
injured in Thursday’s practice, was
back in the lineup and seeming
none the worse for his accident.
Definite positions in the back
field remain unsolved as yet. Pete
James has a good hold on the
quarterback berth, and Jim New
quist has the inside road on one
half position, but is offered plenty
of competition by the trio of Larry
Olsen, Bob Lidy, and Inky Hoc.
Gale Emmons seems well settled
in the fullback slot.
George Suverkurbblo, a big
tackle from Nebraska, was injured
in the scrimmage when he received
a cut over his eye. The rest of j
Warren's cripples seem to be corn-1
ing around in shape and will be
ready for the rook game.

In Singles Match
Alpha Tan Omega captured the
intramural tennis championship by
defeating a strong Chi Psi squad,
2 to 1, Monday afternoon.
Kermit Smith. Alpha Tau Ome
ga singles candidate, helped give
his team victory by sweeping aside
Chi Psi's A1 Gard, 6-2, 6-4. Smith
used net-skimming volleys and well
placed corner shots to outmaneuver
his opponent. Gard put up a stiff
resistance in the second set, but
consistent slams and great returns
of very difficult hots were too
much for him.
Both teams split even in the
doubles with a win apiece. Chi
Psi's Byron Van Metre and Ned
Mansfield teamed up to overpower
Bob Payne and Elvert Wilson, 6-3,
6-3. Van Meter and Mansfield
simply had too much offensive
ability, for time after time they
smashed shots through their op
ponents’ defense that were impos
sible to return. Alpha Tau Omega
neutralized this defeat by soundly
trouncing their rivals 'in the sec
ond doubles competition, 6-1, 6-0.
Jack Boone and Gene Brown led
this onslaught by turning back the
combination of Ernest Williams
and Clinton Paine with the loss of
only one game in the two sets

'Cyclone' Newquist
Bolsters Frosh Club
A prop school All-American who,
but for a bad break would likely
have been the country's top high
school scorer with a total higher
than that of the record set by Chi
cago's famed Bill DeCorrevont, is
what Webfoot fans are likely to
see at left halfback on this year’s
Oregon frosh team.
Jimmy Newquist, figuratively
known as the “Camas Cyclone"
and literally as the Northwest's
most outstanding freshman pros
pect, is the boy who two years ago
as a junior at Camas high in Wash
ington ran up 217 points. Final
game of the season, a set-up con
test, was called off, leaving New
quist 16 short of DeCorrevont's
record of 233, but fourth place in
the nation's scoring. Newquist
gained some consolation, however,
when the Associated Press placed
him on their All-American prep
school team.
“I believe my most discouraging
moment came the year before,
however, in my first varsity game,"
the curly headed Beta pledge ex
plained. “Grant high of Portland
mauled us about 40 to 0 and I was
so discouraged I nearly gave up
t he game.”
Wants Education
Five foot eleven and weighing
185, Newquist says he is at Oregon
primarily to get an education, with
football definitely in second place.
Jim probably isn’t kidding when
he makes this claim, for is one of
the few entering freshmen students
to have a high school record high
enough to merit an academic schol
arship. Jimmy has a rigorous
scholastic program outlined for
himself with business and law as
his goal.
Those who may fear for New
quist’s eligibility under the new
Atherton code have no reason to
worry, according to Jimmy, who
also claims he has no physical
handicaps that may slow him
“I was never contacted in any
way by Oregon so I’m certain I'm
in the clear on that score,” Jimmy
explained. "Also I have no trick
knees or ankles. I've never had
any trouble with my ankles o*r
Despite his heavy scholastic
schedule, Jimmy hopes to balance
his program with a full • taste of
Oregon social life. He admits he is
an eligible bachelor with a definite
weakness for blondes. At present
his favorite phone number is 3200.
Likes Oregon
The Washington Babes are the
ones Jimmy is most anxious to
take care of this year, for many
of his friends are playing for the
Babes. Much grief was felt in the
Evergreen state when Jimmy left
for Oregon to attend what he
terms “a better school than Wash
ington in a better-sized town.” The
sports editor of the Seattle P.-I.
best summed up the situation with
the following poem which recently
appeared in his column.
