New York’s Yankee stadium will be jammed replete by a
frenzied mob of humanity today, as Brooklyn’s beloved
“bums” haul their hickory bats and irrepressible morale
across the East river to their first nickel world series in base
ball history . . . with Joe Mc
Carthy’s Yankee bombers. And
from California’s Golden Gate
to the slap-happy Brooklyn
borough, the ears of millions
of Americans will be pulled
via radio to the scene of that
After 21 years of vacil
lating between the mud
and the upper layer of
putrid air lying dormant
in the National league’s
cellar, after having been
made butts of outlandish
jokes, “Lippy” Leo Du
rocher’s lads have gained
the highest pinacle in the
However, against the New York Yankees the Dodgers will
probably stumble (George Kirksey, United Press columnist,
tabs the'Yanks to do it in six games). Brooklyn’s dogged race
down the stretch with Billy Southworth’s salary-hungry St.
Louis Cardinals has undoubtedly sapped the formers’ energy
reserve, making them more susceptible to the poison doled out
by Yankee bats.
Both New York and Brooklyn have played 154 games
during the season, the Yanks having won 101, one more than
their opponents. However, the Bronx Bombers won going
away ... by 17 full games, whereas Brooklyn wound up a
torrid chase with a mere two and one half game lead over
St. Louis. This exhumes that omnipresent controversy—
whether the Yanks have too much class or whether Na
tional league competition is a darned sight tougher. You
get riled up about it; I’m tired.
Thursday night Oregon’s student body will catch a sneak
preview of its 1941 football team, even before the Webfoots
strut under the Kleigs in Hayward stadium against Idaho,
fortified this year by Francis Schmidt, one of the country’s
outstanding grid coaches, a proponent of hocus pocus play.
Movies of the wild Oregon-Stanford game in Palo Alto last
Saturday will be displayed in room 207 Chapman, with Head
Coach Gerald “Tex” Oliver commenting on some of the more
spectacular phases of the tangle as they unravel upon the
This is an innovation that has staying possibilities. Last
year, when Oliver found an Emerald sports staff waxing
irascible over continued secret practices, he issued a ...
promise, of which this was a prominent feature. Herein
lies a marvelous opportunity for students to snag a glimpse
of the intricacies of one of the most fascinating sports, a
sport upon which huge sums of money, time, and effort
are expended, a sport that constructively affects the lives
of e T°iry individual in the University. So without reserve,
go oat and see them . . . room 207 Chapman hall, 8 p.m.
Thursday. Incidentally, a great deal of the credit for
inaugurating these movies should veer in the direction of
Les Anderson and his rally committee, sponsors.
Every Joe and Jane waltzing about the campus is busy
wondering what would have happened had the final gun not
intervened while the Webfoots were brewing a last, desperate
play to toss against Stanford. With five seconds remaining and
the ball in Oregon’s possession, a substitution halted the clock.
However, while huddled, the gun popped finis. And hereby
lies the sad tale. It seems a new ruling states that if during
the final two minutes of play a substitution is made, the clock
will be stopped but will resume ticking immediately upon
completion of that substitution.
What Oregon would have done had they the opportunity
of running that last play is purely a matter of conjecture.
Such might have been harmless or potent, witness U.S.O.
breaking a 7 to 7 deadlock with Oregon State in the final
13 seconds of play farther south that same day. One can
let his imagination run berserk on this kind of speculation.
