    Soldier Boys Hold Ducklings
To Scoreless Tie in Grid Fray
Slippery Turf
Keeps Offensive
Efforts Muzzled
The Frosh didn’t win a game
lltSt Saturday night in Astoria,
but they didn’t have a loss tacked
on their record sheet either, as
their game with the soldiers from
Fort Stevens ended in a score
less tie.
Frosh victory number three
was ver y nearly tied down by the
Duckling gridders in the closing
seconds, in fact on the last play
of the game. The near-score
came as a result of the Duck
ling’s patented long passing
combination, Glasgow to Lopaz.
For on the game’s last play,
Glasgow faded back to his 38
and tossed a pass to Lopaz who
had slipped behind the soldiers’
secondary on the five yard line.
Lopaz took the ball and started
for the end zone. He slipped to
one knee on the two-yard line,
and slid over the goal line. How
ever, the official ruled that he
had been down on the two, and
as the timer’s gun had sounded
while the play was in motion,
the ball game was over.
Trosh Threaten
Another serious scoring drive
by the yearlings came in the first
five minutes of the game, when
they took the ball on the soldiers’
3i_ where a short punt had
bounced out of bounds. A pass to
Torchia, and run by Glasgow
moved the ball to the 12, and
another run by Glasgow advanced
to the five. There the frosh at
tack bogged down and the sol
diers took over the ball.
Fort Stevens had its turn,
when Newman, 215-pound tac
kle, picked up a Duckling fum
ble in mid-air on his 35, and
raced 48 yards to the Oregon
1“, where, with a clear field in
front of him, he stumbled and
fell. After the frosh line stif
fened and held for no gain,
Steve Fowler, a boy who per
formed with the frosh in 1938,
attempted a field goal from the
22, but it was blocked by end
All through the game, the
Ducklings broke loose for long
gains, but just couldn't keep
clicking when they were in scor
i n g territory. LeRoy Erikson
returned a punt from his 12, back
to the 35, but a fumble on the
next play nullified his run, as
was the case all night.
The frosh had it all to them
620 Willamette
selves on the statistical side,
finishing the game 1B3 yards
net from scrimmage, and a to
tal of nine first downs, as com
pared to the soldiers’ 51 yards
from scrimmage plays and four
first downs.
Steve Fowlers played a great
game for the soldiers, but the
Duckling's Erickson was the out
standing back on the field.
The yearlings will end their
regular schedule for 1941, when
they meet the Rooks from OSC
Friday night, November 7, in
One of the four desperate passes hurled by the Webfoots In Satur
day’s game as the last 27 seconds of the first half were ticking away.
The Oregon team has the ball on the YVSC 8-yard line but a series of
four passes failed to push it across. Pictured above is Tommy Roblin’s
pass intended for Jim Shephard, shown lumping in the foreground.

Duck Hoopmen
Add Two Tilts
to Schedule
Two more warm-up games
have been slated for McArthur
court by the Oregon basketball
quintet before their annual trans
continental tour gets under way
December 6. These new additions
non give the Ducks a total of 27
tilts for the season, sixteen nor
thern division contests and eleven
nonconference games.
Signal Oil’s crack outfit opens
the Webfoot season at home No
vember 21. The Oiler team is
composed entirely of former col
lege aces and last year pulled
down a close 45 to 41 victory over
the Ducks, thanks to some
“superman” tactics by Dusky
Chuck Patterson, ex-Oregon star.
Patterson tossed in some 21
points to single-handedly pull the
“coup de’etat.”
Rubenstein’s Slated
The other encounter is for De
cember 3 against Rubenstein’s
Oregonians. Last year the Web
foot varsity took the count from
the Rubensteins by a 47 to 40
score. A star-studded lineup is
being rounded up for the current
Oregonians. Among the lumin
aries are Urgel (Slim) Winter
mute, Laddie Gale, Earl Sand
ness, Jack Butterworth, and Ted
Sarpola, all of whom served under
Hobby Hobson.
A third game is on the Ore
gon schedule before they turn
eastward. That is against the
Oregon State A.A.U. champ
ions, the Bradford Clothiers,
December 6 at Portland.
Ducks Fast Break
In workouts Monday night, the
Ducks resorted to the traditional
galloping tactics, working the
fast break from backboard re
coveries. The combinations of
Don Kirsch and Bob Newland,
and Porky Andrews and Paul
Jackson showed up well in the
race-horse down-floor rush.
Another informal intrasquad
scrimmage was held last night
with Warren Taylor, 6-foot 5-inch
junior being the outstanding man
on the floor. The big forward
dropped in baskets from all over
Sigma Chis, SAEs Shine
In IM Volleyball Openers
With touch foo ball a thing of the past, intramural volleyball
rolled into a conspicuous niche in the shelf of campus sports yester
day, and featured six well-groomed teams itching to show their stuff
in intramural competition. Both of the the large basketball courts
were in use and judging by the enthusiasm shown by both specta
tors and the players the tourney will furnish some lively battles as
it moves along. The tilts this
year are being run so that each
team is compelled to play three
games with their opposition and
judged on the basis of the best
two out of three.
Sigma Cliis Boom
A rugged Sigma Chi sextet
trampled the none-too-lucky
Gamma hall outfit, 17 to 3 in one
tilt, 17 to 8 in the other to win
the first two games, and conse
quently, the series. This victory
can, at least in part, be attrib
uted to the deceptive serves
dished out by Sigma Chi’s Evan
Morin, and the sterling line back
ing of Don Morin and Dick Clark.
The SAEs, despite the sturdy
resistance handed them by a
persevering Pi Kap aggrega
tion, swamped them 15 to 10
and 15 to 17, respectively, to
take home the victory-bacon.
The long, looping serves of Oz
zie Redfield, which swooped
into the back reaches of the
the floor and looked very good in
under-the-basket mixups.
Sphomore Bob Wren was an
other who showed up well on of
fense, as did Lloyd Jackson, tow
ering center. Bob Newland was
“leech” on Captain Porky An
drews, checking the fiery Duck
captain with unerring canniness.
Believe It or Not
31 East 7th Ph. 547
court were just too much for
the Pi Kaps, who were unable
to retrieve them.
Taking two out of three games
to win the series, a victorious
Phi Psi club defeated Kappa Sig
ma to the tune of 15 to 3 and
15 to 13.
The Yeomen lost by default to
Alpha hall.
Eugene Gets
Classics Meet
The Classical Association of
Pacific States will hold its an
nual meeting at Eugene this year
during the Christmas holidays,
according to Dr. Edna Landros,
acting head of classic department,
and president of the association.
The association includes col
lege and high school teachers of
classics in California, Oregon,
Washington, Idaho, Montana, and
British Columbia.
There will be one joint meet
ing with the American Historical
society which will probably be a
banquet with a speaker to repre
sent both groups.
