It was disastrous to say the least. Those dawggone
Beavers played as if they were headed for Rose Bowl land
again. They tackled ferociously, blocked unmercifully,
run unerringly, and passed perfectly. In other words, Ore
gon State was “HOT!”
Here's a tip: One thing that you never want to do is to lay
a bet on the visiting club when the hometowners are putting
on a homecoming performance. Regardless of the odds the
fast-talkers will give you, stear clear of these bets as you
would a week-old doughnut. "Taint no good".
Uclans Had Pasadena Tickets Almost Bought
Remember the Oregon homecoming? UCLA, cocky, con
fident. and classy, stormed into town, suffering from grandi
ose delusions of New Years Day, Pasadena, Arroyo Secco,
Rose Bowl, honor, fame, et cetera.
Honest Jawn yawned, turned from his drafting' board
ttheie he had been dissecting the Uclan system of football py
i otechnics, fashioned a paper airplane of the diagrammed ma
ftial, tossed it to his boys, and sat back. There was joy in
Ms heai t as he watched his Duck mechanics following' the
insti notions, handle themselves in a first class manner, dis
mantling the supposedly impregnaable Bruin machine with
gleeful, lustful finality.
Complete and Total Destruction
I'u-st. the Webfoot “grease-monkeys” ripped off the hood,
ruining the Uke defense system, then looted the buggy of its
engine, nullifying the famed \Vaterfield-tQ»jBaldwin passing
combine, and finally pilfered the tires to completely sterilize
the Bruin running attack. What was left of the smooth-roll
ing, yard-devouring Uke juggernaut? A rubble of scrap, left
in a mangled heap under the UCLA goal post, nothing else.
Saturday’s fiasco was almost a photostatic copy of the
Uke-Duck rumpus. Whereas Oregon was content to
merely incapacitate their Los Angelican visitors, those
arrogant, haughty Beavers ran the gauntlet, to completely
dismember Oregon’s struggling, sinking eleven.
A Meicy heie for the hapless Ducks was about as remote in
nie avenging Beavers’ minds as diplomatic discourse is with
Hitler’s hoodlums. Lonnie Stiner kept mumbling in his boys
eais, Pour it on, pour it on!" It really wasn't necessary,
they had no other thought.
Let's Try to Forget
Enough about the distasteful past. Oregon s grid season
is now bound up and relegated to the ancient history shelf
with a myriad of other musty old volumes, to collect dust and
provide a “teething post” for rampant mice.
\\ hen some resourceful young reporter, many years from
now, gets the yen for a little sports archaeological research,
concerning, say the year 1942, hell find it an erratic season,
one of prosperous harvests, reaped by joyous gridiron war
riors. and faminelike depressions, when life in the body could
scai cel_\ be detected. But sadly to say, the musty, filth-be
smeaied cellai, dark and dank, was the scuffling grounds of
the 1942 A ebfoot legions much of the time.
% W hen the team was brilliant, it was untouchable. Take
the UCLA game; not a better outfit on these green old Pa
cific slopes. But then the roving eye scans other pages of the
team ledger, smarting under the baldness of the defeats. Seems
that’s the way of this crazy, and at times idiotic, football game
—someone’s got to drop ’em.
