A thronged stadium of 90,000 youthful, blonde, red
headed, brown-eyed, blue-eyed, beligerant young fans,
screaming, yelling, jumping, clapping, singing, roaring in
concerted hurricane; bands blaring, beating, strutting;
flags, pennants waving triumphantly in a brisk January
breeze; row 72, seventh seat from the left, there you are,
mister—pick your color—a green ribbon or a red one,
for it’s Oregon against the Fordham Rams. Step right
this way, ladies and gents, boys and girls, black or white,
all over the world—this way to the Rose Bowl, the game
you can’t miss, the game of the year. . . .
"What About Daydreams?
Ever have day dreams? Well, perhaps sportswriters—whose
jobs are to see that the fans get a good share of inside doping
now and then—aren’t supposed to have these flights of fancy.
But there’s a certain finnesse in that feeling, sitting at a type
writer with your feet on the desk and your eyes out of the

had.’’ Perfectly significant if you’ve seen them in pre-season
drills. Oregon will probably be the toughest test for Stanford
this year and Clark Sliaughnessy makes no bones when he gives
the same remark. Man to man, Oregon is heavier; and Ore
gon's per capita backbone strength can be said to far surpass
that of the Reds.. It’d be swell to see the game but with the
billfold under pressure, the radio isn’t bad. Great game, yes;
and a fine team to be cheering for—especially when there’s
someone like Oliver around.
“Wild Bill” Regner, veteran Oregon end, is gunning for All-Coast
honors and will probably start against the Indians in Palo Alto to
