Harry Reiton Valuable
Link in Forward Wall
By DALE TYLER
Hailing from the fair City of
Roses comes dark-eyed Harry
Reiton to join the throng of fresh
man donning the traditional lemon
and green for the first time this
Unable to resist his favorite
pastime, Harry responded to
Coach Tex Oliver’s call for more
pigskin players and thanks to his
unlimited ability in the well known
classic he fitted perfectly in
Oliver’s forward wall.
Rejects Husky Offer
Sounds almost unbelievable but
Harry turned thumbs down on a
grand scholarship offered by Uni
versity of Washington after a two
week trial, because he was lone
some for a few ordinary Oregon
ians. However, each and every foot
ball fan can be thankful that he
made such a decision because
without a doubt this 242 pound
guard proves very beneficial in
Strengthening the Webfoot line,
and those broad-shoulders are a
repeated threat to any opposing
back who tries to gain yardage by
consistent line plunges.
A graduate of Franklin High
school, where he played four years
of varsity football, Harry entered

University of Oregon as a major
in physical education with a firm
desire to follow sports as a career.
Mr. Five by Five
When confronted about the girls
on the campus he emphatically re
marked, “They’re all right to look
at but football and studies keep
my mind occupied so I don’t think
about them very much.” However
statements from several good
sources class him as an artist and
indeed one to watch and follow
When it comes to making with the
feet in accordance with the music.
In order to keep in condition this
19-year old guard spends most of
his time during the summer work
ing in a cannery, checking and
arranging boxes of fruit, and al
though this requires an abundance
of energy, Harry solves the prob
lem by indulging in his favorite
fountain treat—that of several
assorted milkshakes per day, the
larger the better.
Every football lover can observe
the future possibilities of our grid
iron squad with a confident feeling
as far as gilard position is con
cerned because of the three more
years Harry has to play.

It was also sweet tiding to hear
the good word that the Portland

Did any of you kiddies meet
Mary Lit Hermber's newest flame

’Twas'the night before Xmas
And all through the house
Not a creature was stirring
Not even a mouse.

For they'd been worji all Week

Now for the boy and gal of the
week and all that sort of stuff.
This week We’d like to- send a
pretty group of petunias 'n such to
a gal who spends the greater share
of her time helping put our school
paper in readable form. We ftlean
none other than Jeanne Simtnonds,
news editor. If every person did
as much for their alma mammy as
this eager beaver this would be
quite a place, yes indeed.
As for the male half of our short
story we pick Dean Bond who is
more than active as a mighty foot
ball star, but also carries the load
of prexy of Skull and Dagger.
Soooooo—flowers to these kiddies
and congrats from Archabau Flor

Notes and Stuff
Looks like Eugene's Rod Wood

campus and is doing his best tc
show Averil Foster a big time.
Glad to have ya back, Rod.
Lil story conies our way that
says a fella by the name of Lefty
Cone is doing his best to avoid, or
sumthin, a lassie called Sue Mer

their going together. Looks like a
good show coming up, eh?

“Full-color, high frequency tele
vision is no longer a theory, but
a fact,” according to testimony
submitted to the FCC by Paul
W. Kesten, executive vice presi
dent of CBS.
Full-color television pictures
have actually been successfully
transmitted through the air across
the New York skyline from one
building to another many blocks
away, where they were received
with superb clarity.
In view of the imminence of
moving television into the high
frequencies with pictures in color,
Mr. Keston deplored the need for
issuing regulations for the lower
frequencies, saying it was like
"speaking the lines and rehears
ing the parts for a play that will
never really open, or 'Will close
down almost as soon as it opens.”
When seven year old Patrick
Conlon made top score on a re
cent broadcast of Quiz Kids, Joel
Kupperman, nine-year-old super
man of math, sagely commented:
“Not bad for a strippling.”
Joe Kelly, genial quizmaster of
know, is trying to win over girls’
affections by doing their car re
pair work. Ever heard of true love
starting over a carburetor? Ho
the program always knows the
right answers, but, as he is first to
admit, it’s because the answei s
are written on cards tightly hel:l
in his right hand.
No bulging-browned pundit,
Kelly freely confesses that the only
time he evei* trod a campus was
back in 1927 when he took a shor t
cut through what he thought was
a little park surrounded by Gothic,
buildings. Joe's formal education
ended at the fourth grade.
