Our beloved varsity, still glowing from its victorious ef
fort over UCLA last week, bumps into the Southern Cali
fornia Trojans today at Troy's own gridiron hangout, the
Despite the fact that they achieved the upset of upsets at
Hayward field last Saturday, the Webfoots must rank as un
derdogs to USC. Why? For several reasons, friends.
The Trojans seldom lose a ball game on their own
Sunshine will undoubtedly prevail along about game
time, and we all know that the Ducks are at their best
when sloshing around a drenched turf.
(3) The House of Troy can call on a galaxy of reserve
Some Other Reasons
There are other reasons, too, for forecasting a gloomy out
look for Oregon. Oregon has yet to face a back with the
breakaway abilities of young Mr. Mickey McCardle, ace Tro
jan ball carrier.
'S ou may argue that A1 Solari. Bruin tailback who per
formed excellently last week against the Ducks, was fast.
Mr. Solari, although he did leave tacklers standing in the
mud. was still playing on a wet field, and we shudder to think
what might have happened had the UCLA boy performed on
McCardle Like Warburton
Needless to say, Mr. McCardle is regarded in most South
California circles as the equal, if not the superior of Mr.
™.-ari. House of Troy fans hail him as the pigskin reincarna
tion of the famous All-American of 1933-34 vintage, Irvine
‘‘Cotton" Warburton. Certainly, Mickey's efforts this far
have warranted him praise from sports scribes up and down
these fertile Pacific slopes.
On the husky frame of Terrible Tommy Roblin will
rest O. U.’s pigskin hopes today. He has demonstrated his
ability to pick up heavy yardage when the chips are
down, especially when the opposing ball club is laying
The Ducks are still not in the pinkest of condition. Dur
able Dick Ashcom will be gracing the freshmen bench today •
in Eugene, serving as temporary coach to the Ducklets in
their game against a Medford Army team.
Several Ducks Injured
Boomin’ Bill Davis, sophomore fullback who’s carried the
brunt of the heavy attack from his backfield position this sea
son, is also on the injury list, and unless something drastic
lumpens to the afore-mentioned Roblin, Davis’ activities will
confined to that of an assistant trainer.
Scrappy Rhea, Val Culwell and Jim Shephard, although
making the L. A. trip, are still doubtful starters. But let’s
throw away this crying towel we’ve been using. Oregon could,
swing the trick and hang up their third win of the season.
Don't think that Jeff Cravath, Trojan mentor, is not concerned
over the outcome of today’s game. The reports brought back
by his scouts who saw the UCLA-Oregon game last Satur
day have caused him to send the Trojans through extensive,
drilling all week.
Trojan names that you may be familiar with, or may
not have heard, include an assortment of the following:
Heywood, Davis, ends; McCall, Verry, tackles; Clark,
Seixas, guards; Bianchi, center; Bleeker, quarterback;
McCardle, Taylor, halfbacks; and Musick, fullback.
Names? There’s a good gang of stars in that list. Joe Da
vis and Ralph Heywood can snag passes with the best of ’em,
and the former is a stellar defensive wingman, just now hit
ti^>' his peak of 1940. McCall is a soph, and Verry is a made
o«r guard, turning in a good job at tackle. Bleeker, in his
spare time, hits close to 25 feet for the Trojan track team.
He’s a senior. McCardle we’ve discussed. Paul Taylor, south1
paw passer, can run with the oval when called upon, and Bob
•Musick comes from a long dynastic line of Trojan football
Troy has Lost Only One
There’s a nice bunch of reserve backs, too. just hanging
around on the USC bench, biding their time until Cravath
signals the go-in call. Among these emergency performers are
Callanan, Trout and Bledsoe, not to mention a good smat
tering of frisky sophs. „
Here’s something to remember. Southern California has
dropped only one Pacific Coast Conference game this year,
llj^t. 14-6 to Stanford in San Francisco's Kezar Stadium two
w^iks ago. Washington garnered a scoreless deadlock with
the Trojans earlier in the season, but outside of that Southern
California can claim a clean conference slate.
This department hesitates to go out on the limb, but
predicts a one touchdown victory for USC over Oregon.

Triumph in V-Ball
In the closest game of a rather
inactive afternoon, the Kappa
Sig “B" volleyballers tipped the
Sigma Alpha Mus in consecutive
games, 15-9 and 15-11. The con
tests were see-saw all the way,
but the boys from the mill race,
led by Don Beardsley and Doc
Lium, had just enough extra
punch to break through the op
ponent defenses for the victory.
Dick Reingold' and Len Bardee
sparked the losers.
Although winning by identical
scores, 15-9 and 15-11, the I’i
Kaps had an easier time polish
ing off the Delta Tau Delta out
fit. Sizzling drives by Ollie Burg
man had the Delta ducking all
afternoon. Hank Martin and Moon
McMullin did the setting-up for
Ollie. Brilliant play by Ziggie
Phillips and Bill Foul kept the
Delts in the running.
The Delta Upsilon "B” volley
ball team fought valiantly but
hopelessly as they bowed to Phi
Delts. Bud Steele, setting up and
Dwair.e Harbard dropping spikes
in, around and between the DUs'
were the Phi Delts’ stars. Bob
Shot and Roy Cobbelebdick were
the “big guns” for the DUs.

upsets, the Emerald’s peerless
pigskin prognosticators turn an
appraising eye at today’s Pacific
Coast conference football games.

last week. Oh, well, there was a

Oregon State-Starford: The In
dians have not forgotten that
it was these same Beavers that
derailed their Rose Bowl ex
press last season. Give it to the
Indians by a touchdown.
Washington-UCLA: Very diffi
cult to call, but offhand, we
would say that the Bruins
will pick up their lost prestige
and claw out a touchdown ver
dict over the Huskies.
Washington State-Idaho: The
Vandals were never mean to
anyone. Why do all the PCC
teams delight in beating them?
Kennedy and the Cougar kids
California-Montana: Some of the
teams have to win some of the
time, ,but Montana just loses
all of the time. A Bear victory
