Things may be different this year in football if reserve
material or indications of it mean anything. Formerly, the
first and second teams were able to shove through the
Colds (recognized as the third team) with the greatest of
ease. In last spring practice the cannon fodder took it on
the chin time and again from the first and second team men.
Tliis spring it is not so easy. True, the first team can score
on the third team, but it’s a case of tit-for-tat. The Golds are
a threat this year, and it’s a certainty that the varsity will
receive plenty of competition from the third team members.
Larry Olsen is one of the best passers on the squad. Time
and again he flung a feathery pass Saturday which settled
into End Jim Shephard's waiting mitts. Olsen, a right
halfback, is an excellent punter, He can boot along with
Frank Boyd, Jack Leicht, and Curt Mecham around the
40-yard mark. His passes are accurate and easy to handle.
With a little work on his offensive running and blocking,
he’ll be a worthy replacement for Mecham.
Shephard Has Improved
Ehephnrd is one of the most improved ends over his per
formances of last year. Ills pass catching moved the ball far
into Green territory and made it simple for Fullback Tom
0>:nwu: to punch the ball over from near the goal line. End
Tony Irish was also one of the ends which showed well in
the scrimmage.
Coach Tex Oliver will need all the reserve material that
he can get. Oregon lias the toughest schedule in the nation
—10 games. No one could ask for a tougher one. The
Pacific coast conference will be stronger, the Ducks man
aged to grab off a tough independent in Santa Clara,
Texas, the best in the Southwest. Idaho was the one
breather. That’s no breather now with Francis Schmidt of
Cnio State fame doing the coaching.
,V| cs, Oliver avill need all the reserve material lie can muster.
Oregon lias the smallest squad on the coast with the possible
exception of 'Washington State, Idaho, and Montana. Only
men have cheeked out suits. Other schools have a wealth
of material—in quantity. Oliver can only hope that his is in
qi.'uliiy, but even with the best on the coast, it’ll be no snap to
above through a schedule that is so marked with good, tough
opposit ion.
Oregon State Uses Deception
News from Oregon State's spring football camp indicates
that the Beavers are using a little more strategy. Coach
Lon Stiner is using his fast backs, Gene Gray, Bob Deth
man, and Don Durdan, in more reverses. Deception is the
keynote of the Beaver attack. Joe Day will probably be
ttie No. 1 fullback. He was a left halfback last year. He’s
heavy—around 200. Day is learning to level'out when
he hits the line. He is nearly falling on the ground when
he hits.
Sliner will probably use an end around play also with his
other back field deception. Lyle Zelliek is taking John Leo
vhlis place at end, since Leovieh joined the Philadelphia
A (hletics.
Oregon Golfers Eye Flag
l)irk Hanen. Playor-C each Pob Kngelke. Shelby Golden, Don
Cawley, Dod 1 Union, and Chet Keller gave Washington’s highlv
touted golf team a sound beating Saturday. Washington was
the top golf team in the northern division last year and is
stronger this year. Nine-* the Huskies dropped the match to
Oregon, it s a. safe bet that Oregon will cop the division fiag.
The Oregon doubles teams were missing short putts
Saturday morning which cost them precious points. Later
hi the day, the Ducks made up in the singles for the poor
riiots. Hanen, Golden, and Cawley led the Duck attack.

Brown Wins
In Dual Fest
Boyd Brown, crack Oregon
javelin start and Pacific coast
Champion won his event with a
toss of 2141* feet, as the San
Francisco Olympic club dropped
Stanford Saturday in a dual
cinder meet, 70 2 3 to 60 1 3.
Ineligible for intercollegiate
competition, Brown is now in
the contract files of the Olym
pic club and flies south for en
gagements. He still attends
classes at the University, how
ever, but his excession of the
time limit bars him from the
Duck squad.

Duck Netmen Trip
Irvington Club, 4-3
A forfeited singles match provided Oregon’s varsity tennis team
with a one-match margin of victory, 4 to 3, in its tourney with the
Irvington club of Portland on the University courts Saturday.
Pacific coast northern division champ, Len Clark, copped the No. 1
singles for Oregon, dumping Young of Irvington after three ding
dong sets, 6-4, 3-6, 7-5. -
Smith Stars
Kerm Smith, in No. 3 singles,
punched through in the pinches
to take the first set of his match
6-4, then whipped through the
second 6-1. Starr of the visitors
was the victim.
Clark and Smith then teamed
to grab the first doubles from
McGinnis and Young of Irving
ton 8-6, 6-4, iust before dusk
crept over the courts.
Earlier in the afternoon Mc
Ginnis of Irvington pulled Ore
gon’s Frank Baker into camp af
ter the blond Webfoot dynamo
had socked through to take the
initial set 6-1. Final count, 1-6,
6-3, 6-2.
Baker, Williams Beaten
While Baker was being beaten
on court 8, teammate John Wil
liams was being whipped on court
9 in practically the same fashion.
Williams ran Wellington of Ir
vington all over the place to
snatch the initial set, 6-3, but ex

ploded as his tireless opponent
refused to “break,” finally drop
ping the remaining two sets 6-1,
Williams and Van Metre
then pooled their interests, but
weren’t quite up to Starr and
Wellington of the visiting
team, the latter dunking the
Ducks 6-2, 7-5.
Oregon’s victory margin was
ruled in the No. 5 singles match,
when the Irvington club default
ed to Byron Van Metre.
