Injury Riddled Webfoots Drill;
Reserves Beat Ducklings. 13-0
By JOE MILLER
Smarting from their 15 to 7 defeat at the hands
of the Washington Huskies, but definitely not dis
couraged or downhearted, Oregon’s thrice-beaten
Webfoots resumed practice Tuesday within the gates
■jf Hayward field in a scrimmage against the freshmen.
The first string eleven was let off early, but the
rest of the' squad were at the grind until dusk. The
second and third stringers were only able to push
over the Frosh 13 to 0 in a full-time game but looked
impressive offensively with Tom Oxman making a
strong bid to regain his starting fullback post.
The squad should be at full strength for the Idaho
game two weeks hence with the exception of veteran
handyman Roy Dyer, who suffered a dislocated shoul
der in the Husky fray. Dick Ashcom, senior tackle
who ripped "a knee cartilage in the W.S.C. game, will
be ready to go against the Vandals—who appear in
Eugene Saturday, October 24.
John Warren stated that he was well satisfied
■with the backfield arrangement last Saturday and
that he would stick with it as long as it proved as
•successful as it did against Washington. “Honest
John” would not be definitely quoted on it, but
hopes appeared high around Webfoot coaching circles
that Oregon had good chances of going undefeated
from here on in - if they can shake the abominable
luck that has been following their

Oregon’s crying need is for a
suitable right halfback. When
Roy Dyer left last Saturday in
the first quarter the smooth-roll

ened markedly on the right side—
especially on the defensive side.
Ken Olipliant and Scotty Deeds
both lacked the weight and ex
perience in this position. Warren
revealed that he was going to do
some shifting if Dyer was not
ready by the California game.

Frosh Look Good
Against Varsity Suds
By BILL STRATTON
Oregon’s frosh gridders played their first game together yes
terday when they met the varsity second and third teams in a fuil
time scrimmage on Hayward field. The varsity won 13 to 0, but the
yearlings put up a terrific struggle.
The regulars took advantage of the weak freshman pass defense
and scored their first touchdown from a pass, and the second one
on an end sweep irom the six
yard line after moving into that
position from a passing attack.
The Duckling offense, such
as it was, was led by fullback
Spud Crouch from Coquille.
Crouch is the product of a for
mer Duck star, Spike Leslie.
Spud punted better than anyone
on the varsity has this season.

his assistants, thought he was
too small to ever play college
ball! They made this opinion af

Glendale high school in southern
California. . .
