In Touch Finals Today
It will be the blustering', relentless Signia Nus against the bounc
ing Betas in the grand finale of the touch football playoffs today at
4 o’clock on field one. Both clubs vaulted into tbe finals by virtue
of victories chalked up in yesterday’s semi-finals.
The powerful Nus, behind the accurate pass-pitching of their
ficoring twins, Dick Whitman and Johnny Bubalo, went on another
scoring spree to down a stubborn
Fiji club, 33 to 6. The Nus struck
mainly on short passes to the flat.
One consolation for the Fijis
was the obliteration of the
scoreless Sigma Nu defensive
Because of their ultra-violent
offense the Nus are top-heavy
favorites to trample the Betas to
day and grab off the touch title.

ceiver respectively, who com
bined their talents to complete
a dazzling 40-yard pass which
was good for the winning score
of the game. The extra point
was made on a pass from Duden
Although they were deep in
Beta territory several times the
SAEs were unable to score, a
penalty finishing their first drive
on the Beta’s two in the opening
minutes of the game.
Both teams shone well on
the defensive with fine block
ing, offensively as well as de
fensively, being the outstand
ing feature of the game.
The Betas will meet the Sig
ma Nus in the final game to de
termine the intramural winner.

Bill Bartels Comes Thru
When Given Big Chance
One of Oregon’s unsung heroes
stepped to the fore last Saturday.
Shedding his shelter on the lum
ber pile. Burly Bill Bartels
brushed the splinters off his uni
form and zoomed into the ball
game. And it was a sad moment
for the Idaho gang that was just
beginning to get ideas about
making yards and first downs.
Burly Bill, 22, native of Cot
tage Grove, went into the grid
iron spectacle at tackle, and
demonstrated why he should get
into more ball games this season.
Is a Junior
Bartels, who tips the Toledos
at a mere 191 (dripping wet), is
in his junior year. He signed a
contract with the marine corps
and is in that reserve.
How’s this for a combina
tion? In the summer he works
as a butcher, and after gradua
tion and the war, he wants td0
he a doctor!
Bill played fullback for his
Cottage Grove high school eleven.
He then went to Portland Uni
versity and got in playing experi
ence at tackle. Finally the Eu
gene bug bit him, and, well, here
he is, turning in a swell relief
Bartels is a gambler at heart,
and likes nothing better than to
get into a red-hot “poker game.“
Some of his teammates call
}iim “Farmer Bart,” and he just
grins because he knows he has a.
lot of nicknames on them, todj^
Best time he's enjoyed outside
of football season was a vaca
tion visit to Ontario, where
teammate Tommy Oxman showed
him around the town.
