Four times the Ducks powered

Legal Eagle Mentor to Face
Old Cronies in IM Tilt Today
By BOB WHITELY
Fenton Hall Correspondent
The chips will all be blue when
ex-Theta Chi Curley Walker trots
out his unbeaten Legal Eagle grid
machine against his old house the
joltin’ Theta Chi team in today's
classic intramural mud bowl brawl.
"In spite of the inclement weath
er and discouraging skies, we shall
be in superb condition for this joust
in the mud,” stated Jacques La
Coultier, law school chief justice.
In a statement from Coach Cur
ley, who played for the Theta Chi
IM team in 1932, “we will use the
same lineup we fielded to whip the
Sigma haliers, relying on big “In
dian Brad” Faneher, Gumshoe Gray,
Bog Dick, “Basketarms” Hermit
Smythe, and the irreplaceable
“Face” to wade through to victory.”

“Crazy Legs” Carmacheal had not
responded to heat treatments, and
that he had devised a complete iron
covering for the star.
Theta Chi Confident
Reports drifting down from the
hill lay counter claims to success
today when Dick Steelhammer oi
the Theta Chi's predicted victorj
for the house. “They stole oui
plays,” bewailed “Steelhandle,’
"and we believe that Dean O. J
Hollis has been scouting us.”
The Theta Chis pin their hopes or
Bill Harber, Left End Bill Cramer,
and of course, Steelhammer. Theta

star, “Rumdum” Stan Watts would
sit this one out due to illness.

FINAL MEETING . . . Oregon’s Tex Oliver (above) and Oregon State’s
Lon Stiner (left) send their rival elevens against each other for the last
time Saturday when they square off in the “Little Civil Mar” at Bell
field, Corvallis. It will he the final game for Oliver at the helm of the
Lemon and Green Webfoots as he has already announced his resignation
effective upon the completion of the 1946 season. Stiner is the senior
coach in the Pacific Coast conference, having taken over duties at the
Corvallis school in 1933.

Delta Taul Delta tripped the
Sigma Chis 15 to 13 and 15 to 9
in the only “A” game yesterday.
The Delts, riding high with a good
record to date, were forced to play
their best brand of ball to down
the stubborn Sigma Chis.
In another scheduled “A” game
Stitzer hall (AA) won over the
Legal Eagles by forfeit.
In “B” league competition the
closeest game of the day saw an
inspired Stan Ray hall (BB) crew
bowl over SAE in three heats 15-8,
6-15 and 15-7. After the Vets
came through to take the opener,
SAE evened things up by walking
to an easy victory in the seconcf
tilt, but their cheers were short
lived as Stan Ray brandished fine
defensive form to set the Greeks
The remaining two games were
one-sided affairs. The Phi Psis
dropped the Delts 15-3 and 15-11.
Sigma Chi had little trouble in fell
ing Stitzer hall AA 15-5 and 15-8.
ATO won from Stan Ray hall
(B) by forfeit.
VET DORM BB WINS
Contrary to a report in the Sat
urday Emerald, the Vet Dorm BB
volleyball team defeated Sigma hall
last Friday. The Saturday issue had
reported the oppositee.

CORVALLIS, Nov. 18— (AP)
The Oregon State Beavers opened
drills today for their annual “Civil
War” meeting with the University
of Oregon at Corvallis Saturday,

tedly were fumbling their guesses
on the outcome.

season performances, are flashy af

California Bears last weekend, but

Runners Go Inside**
Rain forced the cross-country
men indoors yesterday as Colonel
Bill Hayward continued practices
for the tentative Thanksgiving day
meet in Seattle. Hayward sent some
of his men around the corridors of
McArthur court in order to make
up for the cancellation of the out*
door course run.
Hayward has scheduled a trial
run of four miles for his harriers at
3 p.m. Friday and is anxious to have
all the men in top shape before the
preview of their performance in
the Seattle meet.

Due to a shortage of newsprint
the number of Emeralds printed
daily has been cut 25 per cent.
This means that beginning today
