    Gift Problems?
With only 26 shopping days left until Christmas, the annual
problem of “What to get?” presents itself.

-Out of Focus
Columnist Speculates on Who
Done Us Wrong; Guesses Idaho
The voting is over, California
is in the Rose Bowl and there is
a bad taste in the mouths of Ore
gon supporters. On the gridiron
the Webfoots were never out
fought, but at the conference ta
ble they were out-“politicked.”
Orlando J. Hollis, the Oregon
faculty representative, may not
be from West Virginia, but like
Jim Aiken, he, too, will not for
get a slight. And you can bet
your boots that there will be
some drastic changes made in the
Pacific Coast conference set-up.
The big question as to who vot
ed for whom probably will never
be made public because it might
.put some schools “on the spot.”
These schools are obviously
ashamed of the way they voted,
for a clear conscience certainly
never worries about being “put
on the spot.”
In my own opinion, and I'm
sure that those “in the know”
will agree, the vote stacked up
like this: For California—IJCL.A,
USC, Washington, Stanford, Cal
ifornia and Idaho. For Oregon:
Oregon State, Washington State,
Montana and Oregon.
It was expected that Washing
ton would go along with the solid
south, although it’s certainly dif
ficult to see what Washington
has in common with the Califor
nia schools.
Idaho, who was extremely bit
ter after the Oregon game at
Moscow, figured that they should
have beaten the Webfoots. That
was a minor reason for voting for
California. The second, and more
important reason was the fact
that the Vandal outfit was scared
to death that they were going to
get thrown out of the conference.
As long as politics instead of
the relative merits of the teams
was going to decide the issue,
Idaho should have remembered
that it was Orlando J. Hollis who
was largely responsible for Idaho
being a member of the circuit.
Well, it won’t happen again.
The conference will make some
revolutionary changes in the
rules, providing for playoffs IF
the conference is not shaved
down to eight members. If it is
shaved down, it will be Idaho and
Montana who will get the boot,
and every other team in the
league will play each other
throughout the regular season.
As for the race this fall, it
boils down to this: California got
weaker during the season while
Oregon got stronger. I KNOW,
as do some of the schools who
voted the other way, that the
Ducks are the champions of the
PCC. I take my football seriously,
and I’m a poor sport when it
comes to being “out slickered.”
Come January first, the second
place Big Nine will trounce the
second place Coast team, and it
won’t hurt nay feelings. The Rose
Bowl game was played at Ann
Arbor, Michigan, on October 2.

There is just one consoling
thought in regard to the selec
tion of California over Oregon
■for the Rose Bowl assignment by
those mysterious and secretive
faculty representatives: It is Cal
ifornia that is on the spot and
that will collect the razzberries
in case of an unfavorable show
ing against Northwestern on New
Year's day.
If Oregon had recieved the call,
we folks up here admittedly
would have passed several un
easy weeks, not out of concern
for the opinion of the nation in
the event of a poor game but out
of concern for the leering re
marks from our sister state.
Those remarks under the cir
cumstances would be hard to bear
and they would be as certain as
the morning' after.

Despite That'Slight' There's
Much for Which to be Thankful

NEW YORK — (AP)—There
are many things to be grateful
for this Thanksgiving, not in
cluding the price of turkey.
For example, everybody can
still afford a cranberry.
So let the cost of the drum

Here's a Real 'Natural'--Ducks
And Wolverines in Sugar Bowl
By Vinita Howard
Now we can understand how
Dewey felt November 3.
Oregon seems to be taking a
beating every place this month.
First Dewey’s defeat (Califor
nians voted for Truman which
just goes to show . . .) and now
Oregon gets the heave-ho from
the Rose Bowl. Maybe we don’t
use the right brand of toothpaste.
We still think the new name
idea advanced early last week
for the Rose Bowl would be quite
appropriate. Let’s call it the Bud
Bowl since neither of this year’s
teams quite deserve the title of
full-blossomed roses.
This column started out to be
a commentary on the national po
litical scene, however, events of
the past few weeks (remember
the DuShane plan) have led away
from the traditional political
lights. At any rate, no one in
Oregon is interested today in na
tional housing: all we want is a
place to hang our helmet come
January 1.
We wonder if the Fathers of
the Sugar Bowl are as fast to
see a “natural” as they’re sup
posed to be. If they are, there
should be no question in their
minds as to what teams to invite
south in 1949. We mean, of course,
Michigan and Oregon.
Sportswriters have been pre
dicting for the last three years
that the Sugar Bowl was fast be
coming a bigger bowl than the
Rose Bowl. That’s why it seems
that this year would be the ideal
year to make that prediction a
fact. And, what more could be
asked than that the nation’s num
ber one team should be pitted
against a co-champion coast
team which earlier in the year
came close to giving the Wolver
ines a loss. The game would be
especially interesting because
both the Ducks and Wolverines
were not given the Rose Bowl bid
due to out-dated rules.
Oregon should be receptive to
such a game since it would give
the Webfoots a chance to show
California, and Michigan, who
spoke such high words of praise
for Oregon should also welcome
the chance to make a little new
year money. It’s too bad that the
l?t!C doesn’t wake up to the fact
that the nation is tired of seeing
coast schools being defeated by
large scores in what is supposed
to be the top game of the year..
One consolation to we northern^
ers is that after this year thi
of the four California schools i-’
the PCC will have appeared in tip
Pasadena bowl successively (n
successfully) maybe next year i
at least the year after California
will again admit the six northern
division schools to the union. ♦
