Yanks, 3 to 2;
Brooklyn’s beloved Dodgers,
behind the clutch pitching of
Whit Wyatt, roared back into
contention yesterday with a 3 to
2 win over the supposedly invin
cible New York Yankees. It was
first defeat for the Yanks in
their last ten world series games.

Wyatt, after being in trouble
constantly for the first four inn
ings, settled down to piteh air
tight ball in the late innings. The
Yanks pounded his offerings for
two runs and seven hits in the
first four innings but the Dodger
defense cut down several promis
ing Yankee rallies.
After Rolfe had singled infield
and Henrich had walked, the
mighty Joe DiMaggio grounded
sharply into a double play, Reese
to Herman to Camilli, to end the
inning. Again in the second the
Yanks were on the way when
Gordon was cut down at the
plate trying to score on an infield
hit by Chandler, cutting the rally
short with only one run.
The Yanks tallied their last
ruiHn the third on Henrich’s dou
ble and DiMaggio’s walk followed
by a sharp single by Keller. Two
more Yank hits in the fourth
wasted when Chandler was
thrown out by Reiser at third.
Trailing by two runs going
into the fifth, the Dodgers com
bined two hits and a pair of
walks to tie the score. Camilli
walked and went to third on
Med wick’s double to left. Lav

Flabby Physiques Remodeled
For Credit.. 6 Painful Lessons
By DUNCAN WIMPRESS
“Hey, Joe! Come on, hurry up!
We’re goin’ to' be late to class!
What are ya’ limpin’ for?” A
familiar cry, this, around the
University of Oregon campus
since the extensive Webfoot phy
sical education program got un
der way this week. Many a mus
cle has been forced into unaccus
tomed action and many a bruise
has been acquired from the con
ditioning exercises with which
most of the physical education
profs are torturing their classes
three times a week.
Basketball players are barely
able to raise their tired arms to
take those important notes in the
class following their P.E. period.
Boxers check in, their Grecian
features battered into what some
times amounts to the well-known
pulp. Fencers stagger to and fro,
wondering what ever possessed
them to sign up for a sport that
does such things to their legs.
Only adding insult to injury
are the instructors’ kindly words
about how “it will only last for a
little while; you’ll feel swell after
you just get limbered up a bit.”
But in the meantime, take it
from any boy in a physical edu
cation class, it’s no bed of roses.
So next time you start to holler
for Joe to hurry up, just stop and
think a minute. Brother, he’s

Vandal Attack Varies
Idaho casts off from three basic
formations — single wingback,
double wingback, and short punt
formation. From these three an
amazing amount of spinners, re
verses, and criss crosses develop.
In the one game that the Idaho
lads have played the real poten
cy of their attack wasn’t shown.
They were so busy trying to
fathom the intricacies of Utah’s
T formation that they forgot the
important part of the game —the
While Schmidt has a rattl
ing: good offense, Tex Oliver
hasn’t been asleep at the

The Webfoots had their last

Most of the drill was spent in
running through plays—no block
