It’s pretty iiard to say for the two burly
Steers boys are the spittin' image of

Duck Gridders Look Lousy *
In Scrimmage: Sophs Shine
By BILL STRATTON
Of all the workouts the Webfoot grid squad has had
this season, probably none have been as unsuccessful as
yesterday’s. Head Coach Warren commented at the close
of the “scrimmage,” “What’s the matter with you guys
. . . does your glory hurt, or is it your feet?”
Regardless of whether it was the glory or feet that
hurt, the vyorkout was not a success. Something .was the
matter with the whole team, that caused dissension in the
The result was practically nothing accomplished, and
one injury. Fullback Tom Oxman bruised the knee that has
kept him out since the start of the season, but the doc
explained that it was nothing serious and he may be
ready for the Idaho game a week from Saturday.
Even though a general failure, the workout was not
without its good points. The up-and-coming sophomore
backs continued to show steady improvement.
Bobby Reynolds and Leroy Erickson shone in the pass
slinging department, completing several for long gains
and a major portion of the offensive team’s yardage in the
makeshift scrimmage. Reynlds made considerable yardage
from rushing, also.
Ducks Look Good
Sophomore fullback Bill Davis made continual gains
through the second string line, except through Tommy
Roblin, who was the mainstay of the blue-clad defensive
One change was made in the Duck lineup. Don
Brown, sophomore, who hasn’t seen much action this^
year, was changed from blocking back to guard. Brownw
is still in the formative stage, but “Honest John” said
at the first of the season, “Watch this boy; he’s a
comer.” He may still come around this season in his

For Tank Team
The coachless Oregon tank

While the search goes on for a
swimming' coach for the Duck
splashers, the result of Mike
Hoyman's resignation last spring,
a schedule has been drawn up for
the Northern Division and myth
ical coast champions.
The schedule will include six
splashes, three at home and three
away from home. The schedule
lias been cut as compared to last
year’s setup when the team trav
eled south to beat the Olympic
club, Stanford, and Fresno State.
It was after the bathtub brawl
ers returned from these meets
that they plowed' through all
northern talent and then out
splaslied the combined power of
their opponents to roll rip more
points than all competitors and
wrap up the crown.
The schedule for this year
lists the opener with (ISO at
Corvallis on January lit). The
Beavers come here on February
6, followed by two more home
appearances, Idaho on Febru
ary 12. and Washington State
the following night.
The Ducks meet the always
powerful Washington team in
Seattle on February 20. The
Northern Division championship
swim has been set for February
27 and will be held at either Seat
tle or Corvallis.

Betas, 34—Sigma Hall, 0
The Beta Tide rolled formid
able against Sigma hall in what
turned out to be a walk-away
for the mill race boys to the
tune of 34 to 0. With Bob Dud
den tossing the sphere all over
the field to gents like Warren
Finke, Crowell, Jack Warrnes,
and Bill Read, the Betas scored
in each quarter.
The winners thwarted all at
tempts by the hall men to mus

ATO, 8—Campbell, 0
A blocked kick by Bud Vande
neynde gave the ATOs a touch
down over Campbell in the sec
ond quarter, and they grabbed a
safety in third to put on the
clincher and win the game, 8 to 0.
The blocked kick came when
a Campbell kicker, booting
from his goat line was a mite
too slow and Bud blocked the
attempted kick for six points
for the ATOs.
A1 Rouse. ATO speedster, got
away for several rambling runs
during the game but they all
came in the middle of the field
and went for naught.
Rose Bowl Big Money- *
But Not for Oregon State
As a result of its smashing
20-16 victory over Duke in the
Rose Bowl game last year, Ore
gon State received a net profit
While that sum isn’t exactly
“hay,” there’s a few facts to be
taken into consideration first.
The total net profit on the ball
game was $179,780.
A Little Here . . .
A cool $81,367 was voted to the
Pacific Coast conference and a
like amount to Duke’s South
eastern league. Oregon State ac
tually received $25,000, but her
expenses ran to some $20,576.
Subtract this from the above
amount and you get your actual
Other people figured in the
“rake-off,” too. First and fore
most was the Rose Bowl com
mittee, usually composed of
Pasadena, Calif., business men,
last season being made up of
Durham, North Carolina, mo
guls. The war, of course, ne
cessitated the shifting of the
football “plum" from the west
coast to points east. But that’s
There was still the employees
who mowed the stadium lawn,
who were engaged in other ef
forts to make the Duke athletic
amphitheater a better place in
which to view a ball game for
your four bucks and forty cents!
As you can see, the Beavers
got more glory from their vic
tory than pure monetary compen
sation. Who said football was
going commercial, anyway ?
The deadline for all-campus en
tries is past and the schedule
will be drawn up immediately
and play started.
The drawing will be posted atj^
the entrance to the men’s PE
building with the date on which
the matches must be played. It is
important that all matches be
played as scheduled, urged Paul
Washke, intramural director, as
weather conditions later in the
term will make it difficult to
complete the schedule.
Few of the defending champs
in the various sports are back
this year and the competition in
all sports should be wide open.
There will be play in many
sports: tennis, golf, ping pong,
and handball. Doubles and sin
gles both are planned for each
