Salt Lake Team
Invades Campus
The Salt Lake City air base,
football team, one of the most
powerful aggregations to hit the
campus, arrives today at noon.
This team includes University of
Michigan’s 1941 all-American,
Bob Ingalls, who heads an ar
ray of former big time stars.
This game winds up the foot
ball on the University campus
for 1943 season. Although it is
impossible to have a Homecom
ing game because of transporta
tion, the game will have much
the same atmosphere and color.
Two military bands and the Eu
gene high school band will be on
hand with the high school's ma
jorettes. THere will be special
cheering sections for the air corps
and the engineers.
One of the things probably
overlooked by the general pub
lic is the matter of the officials,
one of the finest staffs in the
Northwest conference, according
to Lt. R. G. Davis. George Mirn
naugh, official referee, has been
used by the Pacific Coast confer
ence colleges. Dick Reed, Dick
Ashcom, and Shy Huntington,
all well-known former gridiron
greats of the University, com
plete the list of officials.
The GI Ducks have come a
long way since the first game of
the season with the Willamette
Navy Cats. The game two weeks
ago with the Marshfield cavalry
team showed that the G.I. boys
are ready for this game. Because
of the former “greats” on the
Salt Lake air base team they are
the favorites for the game.
