    Aiken Ecstatic Over Vandel Victory
Webfoots Roll Up
41 Points on Idaho
l “Wonderful! Everyone played just wonderful! ’
These were the words of Head Coach Jim Aiken after his
“wonderful” Webfoots poured on a 27-point attack in the last
half of their football game with Idaho to crush the visiting Van
dals 41-0.
. The victory was the 13th straight Pacific Coast Conference
win and the 17th of the last 19 games played for the Ducks. Add
ed to that it was the largest margin of victory any Webfoot team
has ever ran up over an Idaho team with the previous high com
ing in 1932 when the Ducks trounced the Vandals 32-0.
Big Bob Sanders, Oregon’s rambling fullback, was the thorn
in the Vandals side as he paced the Webfoots the lopsided win by
personally racking' lip 122 yards
and scoring three of the Ducks’ six
touchdowns. George Bell, Bill Fell,
and Bud Boqua each scored one TD
while Chet “Cool Papa” Daniels
kicked five perfect strikes through
the uprights on six attempts.
However the victory was a costly
one for the Ducks for they lost the
services of End Les Hagen who
broke his left leg just below the
knee late in the third quarter. Hag
en, who starred in last year's Cot
ton Bowl game, was one of Aiken’s
leading pass catchers as well as
being equally adapted to defensive
Although the defeat was the
worst that the Vandals have suffer
ed from an Oregon eleven, Millard
“Dixie” Howell’s team was a con
stant scoring threat with John Bro
gan in the backfield. Brogan ran,
kicked and passed the Vandals to
12 first downs, only four less than
the Webfoots could tally. He carried
the ball 16 times for a net gain of
110 yards for a healthy 6.8 average,
second only to Oregon’s Sanders
with 8.7 yards per try.
The Vandals opened their vaunt
ed running attack after the initial
kickoff by starting on their own 20
yard line and marched to Duck 24
before Aiken’s forward wall stif
fened and the Ducks took over on
dqwns. This was the only time dur
ing the afternoon that the visitors
got past the Oregon 30-yard stripe.
Oregon’s first score came just be
fore the end of the first quarter
when Ray Lung recovered Jim
Hammond’s fumble on the Idaho
four to set up the touchdown that
came two plays later with Bell
plunging over right guard.
The Ducks’ second tally came on
a sustained ground-aerial attack
which carried them from their won
three all the way to the Idaho goal
lnie. The score was set up by a
St elle-to-Darrel Robinson pass good
fov 25 yards to the Idaho 13. From
here Sanders raced around right
eud all the way into the end zone.
From here on the Ducks capital
ized on Idaho fumbles and pass in
terceptions to add 14 points in the
third quarter and 13 in the last
stanza to make the final count Ore
gon 41, Idaho 0.

NEW YORK, Sept. 26—(UP) —
The Boston Red Sox, roaring irre
sistibly from behind in one of the
greatest stretch stands of all time,
finally took over first place from
the New York Yankees today,
beating them, 7 to 6, before 66,156
frantic fans at Yankee Statidum.
They won the game in a fashion
that has been typical of their play
since mid-season, putting on a last
ditch four-run rally in the eighth
inning off Lefty Joe Page, who has
been heralded as one of baseball’s
great relief pitchers.
When they came to bat in that
climatic frame they trailed 6 to 3
and Page, with a nonchalant grin
that was perceptible in the grand
stand, was mowing the Red Sox
down. He had entered the game in
relief for Fred Sanford with two
out in the fifth and had breezed
through two innings.
Birdie Tebbets, tough old Red
Sox catcher who was playing in
World Series ball games 15 years
ago, wiped that smirk off Page’s
countenance with a sharp single to

leaped high but he lacked the
stature to nail the ball cleanly and
could only knock it down. It went
for a single, scoring pinch-runner
Tom O’Brien and sending Stringer
