Assistant Sports Editor
Asked in yesterday’s column was the question, “Wot happen
ed?” This will apply today, also, when we discuss the late dis
aster met by the Frosh team at the hands of the University of
Washington Pups in Seattle. Coach Bill Bowerman's boys came
back with their tail feathers between their legs, dragging behind
them a 59-13 defeat.
Frankly, we thought the Frosh would whip the Pups, al
though we had limited information on the Northerners. The
Frosh have a strong team, the strongest to wear the Freshman
green in many a year. That any team looking that good in its
first two games could let so many touchdowns be piled up
against them is an indication that the Huskie Pups have a
mighty fair team.
Three quick scores in the initial quarter sort of set the Duck
lings back on their webbed heels. Oregon’s quarterback Hal Dun"
ham finally got a pass away to scatback Phil Turner just before
the end of the half for a TD. One trouble all through the game,
as well as in the first half, was that the Ducklings’ star left end,
Jake Williams, was completely bottled up on all pass plays, or
anything that remotely looked like a pass play to the defensive
Pups Had Themselves A Spotter
Jake recently told an Emerald staffman that this was his main
trouble in high school at Boystown, Neb. As soon as he got a
pass, he was dropped in his tracks. And, in many games, he was
too tilghtly covered to act as a good receiver. This apparently
was the trouble in the Pup game. Reason: Washington had the
Frosh spotted, or at least had been reading the sports pages.
They knew what the Frosh had to play with, and they went to
work slopping it. Another result of their spotting, or accurate
knowledge, was their powering through the center of the line.
Against the Oregon State Rooks, the center of the Frosh line
looked pretty good, at least to the casual, frenzied, observer. It
was almost as good in the first game against the Portland Uni
versity Freshmen.
Washington, evidently, has a powerful freshman team.
That is an indication of powerful Huskie teams in the years to
come. Looks like Howie Odell isn’t letting any turf grow un
der his feet at Washington—he’s going after the material.
Word comes from Red Gates of the Eugene Register-Guard
sports staff that there will be plenty of University interest in this
year’s annual University high-Eugene high game Friday night in
the Civic stadium.
Two Ex-Ducks for Coaches
Jim Berwick, coaching the Eugene line, is well known to
Duck fans of last year as a top flight defensive guard. Hq will pit
his line against Uni-High gridders coached by assistant Keith
DeCourcey, who played right half for the Ducks last year.
In the Eugene high Axmen backfield will be a lad named
Jerry Aiken, son of Oregon’s coach. President Harry K. New
burn’s son, Bobby, played for Uni-High last year and led his
team to a 13-6 upset defeat over Eugene. That, incidentally was
* the third time the Urii-High team has defeated the Axmen in
many, many years of competition.
Biggest point of the contest is that both schools are undefeat
ed in conference play and the winner will probably represent this
district in the Oregon State High School playoffs for the prep
crown, presently held by Grants Pass.
Beat Willamette? . . . Oh, No!!
Observers at basketball practice in McArthur court last week
saw a wealth of potential players covering the benches and play
ing floor. Surprisingly enough, some of the frosh hoopsters have
been giving the varsity men a mighty rough time in the short
game sessions. No time yet for putting praise with names on un
der the heading of winter basketball, but some of the boy.s frosh
and varsity alike, look pretty good for this early in the season.
Who knows, maybe John Warren’s boys will beat Willamette
this year in their pre-season game.
About Iowa . . .
Iowa’s head coach is Dr. Edward Anderson, who reecived his
M.D. degree from Rush Medical College of Chicago in 1929. He
has coached the Hawkeyes for eight seasons.
The Hawkeye’s win-loss record for 1948 was 4-5, in the op
ponents’ favor. Mighty Notre Dame beat Iowa 2/-12 at Iowa
Iowa has no regular team captain. Dr. Anderson, the coach,
appoints one before each game.
Coach Anderson’s all-time coaching record is 115 victories,
73 defeats, and 11 ties. At Iowa, his record has been 31 wins, 28
Jesses, and two ties.

on a sustained drive and scored 10
points in a row to win the game 15
10, and take the match.
French Hall put up a good fight
in the first half of their match
with Pi Kappa Alpha but went
down to a count of 16-14. In the
second half of their set, the Pi
Kaps made off with the game and
