Huskies Lead Pack
Five victories and one defeat for
a percentage of .833 give the
Huskies a clear view of the rapidly
approaching Rose Bowl tilt New
Years Day. The Washington eleven
has tallied a total of 73 points
against a total of 40 scored by
opponents. Of the 40 points scored
against the Huskies, California
boomed out. one afternoon for 27
of them. The only other teams to
cross Washington’s goal line are
the Beavers, Webfcots and the
Trojans. Each team made one
touchdown and Southern Cal com
pleted a conversion attempt to
come within a touchdown of knot
ting up the final count.
A well developed backfield of
suc7i ground-gainers as Gordy
Hungar, Leo Trask, M'aurie Stacy,
and Norm Sansregret. One of the
main cogs in the forward wall is
captain Bill McGovern, a great line
backing center and a clever defen
sive signal caller.
Down south today the still
—.mighty Trojans and the Golden
Bears meet in the Los Angeles
stadium. Although run over by the
Gaels last week 26-0 the defending
coast champs will be in top shape
for the encounter. In the first
meeting the boys from Troy turned
California back 13-2 and should do
it again if they don’t have an off
day. Possessing the beefiest line in
the conference and having better
backfield material to wrork with

Injuries to Beavers
Gloom prevailed on the Oregon
State campus this week as star
right half Bob Reiman was an
nounced as not likely to play
against the Huskies today at
Seattle. Coach Lon Stiner also told
eft rfi rl* rl* rti «-t» tin rt% rt-» At A rli A r
the sports world that Murl Ander
son, alternate quarterback, would
also not likely be able to start
today. Beaver coaches are concen
trating efforts in molding a
granite front wall that will give
the four backs plenty of support
when they want to go travelling.
A superior playing Washington
line kept the Orangemen in check
in the initial encounter and
knocked Stiner’s backs for some
Besides the Oregon-Washington
State fracas, the only remaining
big game of the week is the
Fourth Air Force match with the
Personnel Distribution Command
of Greensboro, North Carolina in
the L. A. Coliseum Sunday. Both
of these elevens are rated high in
service team standings and will
afford an intresting afternoon for
Left end, Dale VVarberg
snatches a fast flying hall from
mid-air. Dale has been on the
receiving end of several touch
down passes. A promising wing
man, he will be of great value to
Coach Oliver today.
The Dope Bucket
By Tom Riley
There is a little let up in this week’s grid schedule in com
parison with a week ago—remember?
Oregon vs. Washington State
This makes Oregon's seventh game this season with no let
up. Washington State lias the advantage of the home field,
which incidentally is snow covered. With the hope that Ore
gon can push three or more touchdowns across in the first
half, I pick Oregon by 6.
Army vs. Notre Dame
The big' game of the year, Army lias yet to be beaten through
two seasons of play and until they are. the}- rate to win no mat
ter who they play. Army by three touchdowns.
Washington vs. Oregon State
Too bad that this game takes place in Seattle for otherwise
the tables could be turned. However, the A\ ashington boys
always pull through on their home field. \\ ashington in a
repeat performance by 14 points.
Here ’N There
Now for some quick ones. Ohio State over Miami of Ohio;
Purdue to top the strong undefeated Columbia; Penn to better
Princeton; and we add this game to make it an even ten, 1 ulsa
over Oklahoma A&M.
Batting 20 points over 800, I leave you with the above pre
dictions and a wish for pleasant football via radio. May your
favorite team win!
