Blessed or cursed by a rather meek soul, L feel squeamish about offering anything that, at first glance, would appear ,<m inadvertent prediction on the outcome of tonight’s Oregon Iduho game. Also, being no more than an ordinary fellow, and a very ordinary one at that, clairvoyance is an umpteenth nense I have to struggle along Without. Nevertheless — ami please, no mild hysterics—I believe Oregon will batter Idaho into a state of flaceidity ere the game is well underway and will win easily. Tile score: About 38 to 0. f If one takes cognizanee of available facts, making' ■ allowance for the self-critical propaganda schools flood their oppo nents’ camps with for the purpose of ego-inflation <■ . . . perhaps to the point of overconfidence, this seemingly rash prognos tication will probably ap pear inevitable.

This seemed rather feeble alongside the 22o-yards Utah ball carriers had a gay old time reeling off enroute to a 2G-to-7 victory. Mow if Idaho thumped futilelv again a near impenetrable Utah forward wall, is it gross exaggeration or wishful thinking to expect a simile when the \ andals try pok ing holes in an Oregon line that time and again shoved back Stanford’s Model T as it threatened to crash over the former’3 goal? And Clark Shaughnessy\s Indian forward Avail is no slouch. . . . Web foot Coach Gerald “Tex’’ Oliver opines that it ’s tougher than tin* one that mowed down Nebraska s Coru Jtuskers in the Hose ltowl last season. In the air, Idaho was more potent, outgaining the Ute Redskins 112 yards to 84. However, Oregon’s pass-smother ing tactics had the Webfoot-Indian game radio commen ■ tator gushing superlatives all afternoon. This efficient aerial defense can vindictively be magnified when one realizes that in Frankie Albert, Stanford had one of the nation’s outstanding passers out there throwing the ball around. Then too, if the Stanford game is any criterion, this year s ^Webfoot eleven is exceptionally long on guts ... if that riles your sense of Victorian-inspired prudery, avc’U call it courage or spirit. This does not intend to have you infer that previous Oregon grid teams lacked this motivating force that oftimes Jntehes miracles. Of course, Utah's line may have more oomph than Stan ford’s. The Mormon State boys may be faster in back. Idaho, by some freakish peculiarity, may unwrap a passer superior to Frankie Albert. If so, I’ll shout their praises and then hang my head in shame. But until then, Oregon 38, Idaho 0. Let's Cheer Like Hades In tlio sa mo groove, 1 fervently hope Oregon’s cheering demonstration tonight will be nothing short of superb. It’s no rank disgrace to get hilariously enthused over something like a football game; you need have no fear of being socially Vlispwned if your coiffure unhitches a bit under the stress of spelling out Oregon. True, a few self-styled intellectuals, per verts perhaps, raise their shrivelled-up noses to that angle of displeasure at forceful cheering during athletic contests . . . "a boorish, adolescent, and barbarous exhibition.” However, one can, without begging forgiveness, look upon it as an exuberant expression of the kind of spirit and cooperation that smoulders at Oregon and erupts All American Oreganas and Emeralds with startling regular ity. So discard petty inhibitions tonight. Get behind, not too far behind, Earl Russell’s yell dukes and Les Ander son’s rally committee. Them "Bums"' Do It Incidentally, those Flat bush Floogies, those supposedly nerve-wracked Brooklyn bums, bumped the New York Yankees yesterday, d to L\ the identical score of the Bronx Bombers’ v, in the previous day.

Bill Davis, fullback from Grants Pass, has been switched to quarterback, where he shows signs of developing into a deadly blocker. He crashed into the de fense many times yesterday with devasting power. Mayther Drives Bill Mayther, another made over fullback hailing from Spo kane, Washington, showed a great deal of drive and power at the quarterback spot. Lyman Glascow, from Con cord, California, looked like a flashy, hard driving runner at the halfback spot. He is shifty and handles the ball well on the reverse plays. Southpaw Jack Willis, Beverly Hills, California, exhibited an un erring passing arm in the warm up drill earlier in the afternoon. He was firing bullet passes that hit the receivers time after time.
