And it was Holcomb again in
the same quarter crashing
through another gaping hole, this
time at the opposite tackle of the
Engineer line, racing a dozen
yards into the end zone.
Led by Captain - Coach
Lieut. Ed Warner, former Col
tr gate gridder, the Engineers
* threatened only twice, these at
tempts being registered in the
third and fourth quarters. But
two drives to the sixteen and
eleven-yard lines respectively,
petered out, and the game was
never in question.
The freshmen’s third score
came when Ralph Barnewalt took
the pigskin on an end-around
play of 1900 vintage, and scam
pered some 65 yards for touch
down land. Bill Culbertson pulled
a quarterback sneak for the ex
tra point. And that was it, 19-0
at half time, and 19-0 at the final

The first-year men took the

tap dancing- and the harmonica,
figuratively “brought down the
house” in their performance last
night in McArthur court, open
ing the University Greater Art
ist concert series to one of the
most enthusiastic and responsive
crowds Eugene has ever seen.
Classical selections made up
the first half of the program,
demonstrating what complete
masters of their respective arts
these two artists are.
Consisting of the most infor
mal and “jiviest” of jazz the final
half of their concert brought
thundering applause after each
number and actually increased in
volume after several encores
Not to be forgotten was their
last encore of “Mighty Oregon”
with Draper tapping, Adler play
ing his harmonica, and the audi

Larry Adler’s numbers, of
which “Rhapsody in Blue” was
a good illustration, seemed to be
played with several instruments
instead of just one ordinary Hoh
Of all remarks heard after the
concert concerning these two,
