Athletic News Director Art Litchman who early last week
went to Los Angeles to make pre-game publicity arrangements
for the Oregon-UCLA battle reports that fans in that area are
distinctly coll about Duck half-back Jake Leicht. Litchman
Thursday night reported by telephone to Assistant Director
‘ Bill Stratton that followers of the Bruins football camp have
not, thus far this season, been impressed with Lightnin’ Jake’s
performances on the gridiron. He said thev didn’t exoect much
frcm Leicht in the way of of
fensive magic today. Litchman
said he could find no apparent
reason for the slump in Leicht
stock, but is was definitely
noticeable in press reports in
the Los Angeles'area.
Though diminutive Jake has
been received with a tongue-in
the-cheek attitude the L. A.
press has gone overboard for
the Norm Van Brocklin story.
The rags-to-riches tale of Van
Brocklin’s jump from a lowly
spot on the Webfoot varsity JAKE LEICHT
last vear to the ranking passer’s position in conference stand
ings this year has impressed one and all. That one is easy to
understand. Last season under Tex Oliver, Van Brocklin saw
action in only one important game all season.
In the Oregon-Oregon State game last year the Duck passing
sensation saw only enough action to slightly dampen his yet
unsoiled uniform—and that was just about it. He did get in a
few licks with the junior varsity, but that could hardly be called
unusual. c
Ducks to Lose by 30 Points?
According to bookies in the Los Angeles area the Webfoots
have a very slight chance of making a fair showing against the
Bruins. The boys with the money are riding with the Uclans
and are giving away as much as 30 points. If one is to follow
the books, then 30 points isn’t unreasonable, but the Webfoots
always give any Bruin team a bad time and today may not be
the exception.
It stands to reason that the Webfoots are going to give some
one a bad afternoon before the curtain drops on the ’47 season.
With a break here and there the Oregon club could knock over
a really big score because of the ever-present passing threat.
"Scotty" Deeds Rolls
A lad named Cameron “Scotty” Deeds who back in 1942
was doing fyis football chores for the University of Oregon has
found greener gridiron fields elsewhere and is at present oper
ating for Grigham Young—and he’s doing very well too. Ac
cording to statistics released by the National Collegiate Ath
letic bureau Deeds is the No. 6 man in the nation in rushing ...
he has played in three games, and has carried the ball 31 times
for a total of 234‘yards. This gives him a happy total of 7.6
yards gained for every offensive attempt.... In addition to this
. ranking he holds down the No. 21 spot in total offense with
265 yards, and ranks No. 16 in the nation in pass receiving.
Deeds was a member of the 1942 Duck squad that was known
“The Green-Jerseyed Giants of the North”. Touted as one of the
finest backs ever to enroll here, Deeds came from Southern
California where he had a fine high school record and was labeled,
“the hottest thing to hit the conference.” So far he hasn't dis
Another ex-Oregon gridder who strayed from the fold after
the big war was guard Marty Feldman. He was a big, handy
lad who played ball for John Warren’s frosh squad in 1941. A
broken leg put an end to his playing days here just before en
listment. After the war he enrolled at Stanford and is doing
nicely. A place-kicker deluxe he thumped a third quarter field
goal for the Indians' as the Cardinals were losing to Idaho 19
to 16.

Chandler To Cut Juiciest
Melon In History of Series
CINCINNATI, O., Oct. 10—
(UP) — Baseball Commissioner
A. B. (Happy) Chandler cut up
one of the juiciest melons Friday
in the history of the world se
ries—in which members of the
losing Brooklyn Dodgers got
more than their share than did
the winning St. Louis Cardinals
of 1046.
Chandler revealed that each
member of the new world cham
pion New York Yankees, who
was entitled to receive a full
share, would get about $5,800 for
winning the world series.
Then, showing that not all of
the spoils belonged to the victor,
he announced that each member
of the Brooklyn Dodgers would
receive approximately $4,000 if
entitled to a full share.
