How can people have so much
common sense when they keep
passing it out all the time?
SAM NEVIIXS is slated to see plenty of action tonight as the
Webfoots tangle with UCLA at the Los Angeles Coliseum. Known
as one of the biggest men on the squad, yet one of the quickest, the
232 pound senior is a vicious blocker from his right tackle post.
'38 Bruins Hit Iowa;
Oregon and UCLA first started
tearing each other to bits in 1928,
and have kept right on ripping
every year since then, with the ex
ception of two war years.
The two schools have met on the
gridiron 19 times, with the Web
foots holding a scant 10 to 9 edge
in wins. Oregon has compiled 224
points to 199 for the Bruins, and
there has never been a tie game
Probably one of the most thrill
ing Duck-Bruin encounters took
place at Hayward Field in 1938.
That year found the Uclans paced
by the all-time great halfback,
Kenny Washington. Tex Oliver
was in his first year of Pacific
Coast competition, and Bill Spaul
ding, UCLA mentor, was in his
last year of service to the Califoi -
The Bruins were mgmy win™
anti favored to make soup out of
the ’88 Duck, but the big green
machine had different ideas on
The Uclans were fresh from an
impressive victory over the Uni
versity of Iowa Hawkeyes—a fam
iliar ring—but the “Oliver Twist”
completely bottled the vaunted
Bruin attack, as Oregon defaced
California prestige, 14 to 12 .
Even in 1938, when Adolph Hit
ler was pulling Czechoslovakian
wool over Chamberlain’s aging
eyes, it was still the line that made
the difference. The hard-charging
Webfoots held the Bruin ground
attack to an afternoon’s total of
minus eight yards. As great as
Washington was, the 12 times he
carried the mail netted only 15
One of the most stirring spec
tacles that ever occurred in the
long, friendly rivalry was a play
that didn't count. In 1947, when
a fumbling M'ebfoot backfield
plus the reserve-shy “sacred sev
enteen” bowed to UCLA 24 to 7,
Jake Leieht brought the Los An
geles Coliseum crowd to its feet.
UCLA had the ball on its own;
30-yard stripe, and the game was |
anything but clinched, although
the Californians did go on to win j
24 to 7. Skip Rowland, Bruin full-j
back got behind tne uuck second
ary and nabbed a perfect aerial
near midfield. At that moment,
only two persons in that entire
coliseum were not aware that
there was a penalty on the play.
They were Rowland, and Oregon’s
all-America halfback, Jake (Streak
It was strictly a two man act,
as Leicht took off in pursuit of
Rowland—with more than a 15
yard deficit. Rowland thought he
was going all the w'ay; Leicht
thought he could nail Rowland—
but it really didn’t matter.
The rest of the players took over
as spectators while Jake gradually
narrowed the gap. Running with
the swiftness of a deer; Leicht
overtook Rowland at coffin corner
and sent him skidding on his stom

Of course, a LTCLA offside pen
alty nullified the play, but the
crowd had a good show. That was
the last time a Pacific Coast Con

Brooks Take Lead
As St. Louis Loses
By United Press
Brooklyn’s battling Dodgers fought through the rain Thurs
day to take a doubleheader from Boston and move into the Na
tional League lead by a half game as the St. Louis Cardinals
lost to Pittsburgh.
The Dodgers walloped the Braves, 9 to 2, in the first game
and then barely managed to squeeze in a five-inning 8 to 0 vic
tory in the second game over the Braves at Boston.
Meanwhile, the Cards lost their second in a row to the Pitts
burgh Pirates, this by a score of 7 to 2.
The Brooks now have two more games to play with Phila
delphia, while the Cardinals have three with the Chicago Cubs.
A three-game playoff will be held next week in the event the
race ends in a tie.
Rain forced postponement of both games in the deadlocked
American League race. The New York Yankees therefore will
meet Philadelphia at Yankee Stadium today, while the Wash
ington Senators will play the Boston Red Sox at Griffith Stadi
