We haven’t much in the way of records for the coast teams
and their respective kicking departments, but we’ll venture
the guess that Floyd Rhea's record of booting extra points
will stack right near the top.
•To date “Scrappy” has split
i the uprights with five in a row.
I He got his first one in the Wash
j ington game and then added four
] more against Idaho. His record
j is really six—he got one also in
| the Pre-Flight game —but that
doesn’t go down in the record
book of conference play.
Oregon tankmen start practice.for the defense of their
conference title in a couple of days and they haven't even got
a hona fide coach as yet. A guess that H. S. “we call him
Mike 1 toyman will take over the job is about as safe as a de
fense bond. We say that because Mike is one of the top swim
ming coaches in the country and because there isn’t anyone
else on the University staff qualified to handle the job.
Shortage on Coaches
Russ Cutler had handled it before but he,is now in the
physical instruction corps of the air corps. And incidentally,
Oregon is left without a tennis coach now, too. Cutler and
0ml Washke had handled the job in the past, but both of
them are gone.
But back to swimming. Were these ordinary times,
Hoyrnan would have a turnout to warm the heart of any
coach. Of the team that swept all opposition in the north
west for the crown last year, and then polished the whole
thing off by winning the mythical coast crown, only two
would be lacking: Jerry Huestis and Chuck Weitzel.
Bob Irvin, declared ineligible last year, would be back. Al
so there would be Earl Walker and A1 Peterson, both promis
ing frosh; Jack Allen, sprint and middle distance man, and
A Small Nucleus
But as things stapd. Hoyman will have to build around
Ralph Huestis, breast stroke artist; Jack Allen, and Ox Wil
son. That's slim pickings.
^ Mike has one break, however. With the emphasis on
'-physical fitness this year there are a lot of fellows out for
swimming. It’s very possible that Mike can develop some
thing there. Then, of course, he can always recruit Dick
But then Mike may not have to worry about swimming
more than two meets. The schedule lists six meets but our
bottom dime says that Idaho. Washington, and Washington
State won't come down here to swim their scheduled meets.
Touch Football Washed Up
The Sigma Nus washed up intramural touchball today by
waxing- the Betas. We’re afraid that touchball is washed up,
too. For a while we had hopes that some sort of All-Star game
could be cooked up. The talk was of a tilt between the Greeks
and Independents. This would have been a fizzle, because
the Independents couldn’t get together a team that would
stand a chance against the Greek talent.
■®) But a swell idea would have been to pick an All-Star
team to play the Sigma Nus. Some organization just
missed the boat. If someone would have sponsored it they
could have cleaned up. The sport staff can only put out
the publicity on the ideas, not sponsor them.
But lor the Sigma Nus—why don’t you challenge your
brothers from Oregon State, or perhaps the winners of their

MKim. Now he plans on entering the air corps.

28 Victory-Hungry Webfoots

Twenty-eight Duck gridders,

train yesterday for Berkeley
where they will meet California’s
Golden Bears in a Pacific coast
conference game Saturday.
The Webfoots held a light drill
Thursday morning before leav
ing, and will work out in the Me
morial coliseum Friday afternoon.
Graduate manager, Anse Cor
nell, arrived in the bay area
Thursday to take care of public
ity and arrange accommodations
for the Oregon squad.
Cal, 10 to 8
According to Bill Leiscr, sports
editor of the San Francisco
Chronicle, the Bears have a 10
to 8 nod over the Webfoots. This
is the first time this season the
Cal gang has been favored to
come out on top of the heap, but
it is also the first time this year
the Ducks have been near full
Tom Oxman is the only man
on the injured list, and if the
Ducks are ever set for a ma
jor win, this is the time. The
return of Koy Dyer in the Duck
backfield, gives the Ducks a
better chance than they have
had any time this year.
In the last three tilts, of which
the Oregons lost two, there have
been important key men on the
shelf. Veteran tackle, Dick Ash
com, was injured in the Washing
ton State fray, and the shoulder
injury to Roy Dyer encountered
in the Washington game contrib
uted much to the Husky victory.
The Idaho game was Oregon
all the way, even without the aid
of some of the injured regulars.
This week Dyer is raring to go,
Ashcom is in top shape, and the
only man on the shelf is Torn Ox
man, but he has been there since
the start of the season, and Bill
Davis has done a remarkable job
of filling Oxman’s shoes. In fact,
Davis has been considered one of
the outstanding sophomore backs
on the coast.
All in all, this is a poor time
to sell the W’ebfoots short. If
they don’t come through with
a victory this week, they will
have a bad time coming through
with a string of victories the
rest of the season.
California and Oregon both
rest next to the cellar in the con
ference standings, and although
the odds are 10 to 8 for the Bears,
this is a logical time for the
Ducks to upset the favorites.
