Beaver Defeat Means
Slight Bowl Chance
By WALLY HUNTER
J'Ht.wn came to the 1 niversity of Oregon campus quietly
and gracefully today, unmindful of the fact that it had kept
20,000 rabid grid fans waiting 12 hours for Oregon State’s
mightiest grid team to renew its age-old feud with the Ore
gon’s Webfoots on Hayward field at 2 o’clock.
Every seat that surrounds the ancient irreen of Ilavward
has been sold since Thursday,
and thus one of the largest
crowds in Oregon grid history is
expected to put in its appear
ance at the proper time.
Bowl on Fire

any team can earn is hanging in
the balance today it will be the
finest chance that the eBavers

even belts, always free please!”
That was the request Yehudi
Menuhin always made when
clothes were ordered for his con

no hard collar, and only a soft silk
narrow backless vest-belt over his
trousers, which is neither a vest
nor a belt. Yehudi Menuhin re

Oregon Victory Bell
Oregon’s victory bell, the subject of conjecture and won
derment for more than three weeks, has been located. Rumors
that the hell was on the OSC campus were proved false.
Jim Rathbun, president of the Order of the “0” and the
Beta house, announced last night that the hell was in their
living room. It was the Betas who had charge of the hell all
term, and who suddenly discov
ered that it was gone. They ad
mitted last night that they had
thought the Kappa Sigs had had
