We’ve been spending a great deal of time since reading the
local papers and watching for a sharp change of attitude toward
our Webfoot eleven and lo and behold it came. The team
that at the beginning of the season was called the power of the
coast, suddenly has been classified as hapless, defensively weak,
and no longer in contention for the Rose Bowl. Of the three
statements we’re forced to agree with the third.
The 40-13 score should not have thrown anyone. The Ducks
have beaten a couple of teams that bad and for the same rea
son. When a team is behind by two teedees, it must gamble
and this we did. Everything that was tried backfired and thus
the final results. Any good team needs the support of its stu
dent body. Let’s not sell the boys short.
9. Let’s go to every game that we can and root our hearts out.
Call it gaining back prestige or anything that you choose but try
your darndest to follow the Ducks to Berkeley. We need that
game to again be recognized as a mighty football eleven.
Civil War Down South
This Saturday, at the Los Angeles Colesium, when the Bruins
meet Cal, one can be sure that there will be no feeling of brother
ly love; These two California schools are the only unbeaten elev
ens in the conference.
The “mighty” Bears from Berkeley have downed all six of
their opponents handily, with the exception of U.S.C. The
Uclans have had a little more trouble narrowly escaping de
feat at the hands of Oregon, Stanford, and W.S.C. and tasting
defeat at the hands of Santa Clara, the independent King of
Let’s put Cal and U.C.L.A. on opposite ends of a scale. U.C.
-L.A. has Ernie Johnson . . . but Cal has Bob Celeri . . . balanced.
The rest of the two backfields are even. Now to the line. Cal has
a heavy edge since U.C.L.A. has no counter-balance for Franz,
Turner, Collum, and De Jong. The ends on both teams are out
standing so the main difference between the two clubs is in the
middle of the line. When you add the California reserves their
stock go&s even higher. The statistics show Cal has rolled up 163
points against 51 and U.C.L.A. 152 against 106. (Both teams
having played six games). We like the favorites by 7.
Bouncin' Ducks to bounce Back
Bitter and full of revenge, a deceptive and powerful Oregon
eleven ventures to Iowa City to meet Iowa U. The Hawkeyes
are up for the occasion, fresh from wins over Indiana and North
western. The home club has won three out of their five contests.
The three standouts on the Iowa eleven are quarterback
Glenn Drawn, who has a neat .700 passing average; his receiv
ing end Bob McKenzie who is leading the big nine in that de
partment; and Duane Brant who is leading in pass intercept
tions. On the forward wall the Iowan’s have depth and no weak'
The Ducks will enter the contest as slight underdogs, but this
shouldn't stop the team. If they can : (1) develop a strong touch
down punch and (2) lose their “fumbleitis” this should win with
ease with ‘joltin’ Bob Sanders leading the Webfoot attack.
The Duck, you say! The Ducks we say! 21-14.
Lose our Job on These
Thus far this season, we’ve been batting a weak .809 and now
down it goes.
This weekend Oregon State plays host to Washington State
in what is always a wide open contest. Both teams are in the
“fair” bracket with W.S.C. having glimmered the brighter. So
here’s for an upset. Oregon State Bevos 27, W.S.C. 21.
Stanford meets Santa Clara which promises to be a whale
of a ball game at Palo Alto. Last year Santa Clara beat Stan
ford 27-14, but this is another year. The Indians are at full
strength and playing heads up ball. Dispute their two early
season setbacks, they aren’t out of the running for the Bowl
of Roses. We’ll pick the Indians to tame the Broncos 20-14.
Once again the Washington Huskies will be hosts this time
to U.S.C. We think U.S.C. could beat them with their reserves.
Howie Odell will probably find himself jobless at the end of this
season unless a miracle happens, (which is doubtful). The Tro
Idaho plays host to Portland in what should b.e the Howell
Mens third victory. The Portland Pilots have a good team but
lack depth, an all-important thing in modern college football.
Duck Cagers Looking Good

Big Bob Amacher the fellow
who is filling Roger Wiley’s

out of action for the time being.
Bob is 6 foot 8 inches, and looked
good under the basket.
In talking with Mel Streeter a
transfer from Riverside J. C. and
one who you will see a lot of on
the floor fighting for the Green
and Yellow, Mel thinks that Ore
gon is one of the finest schools. The
basketball is a little different than
at Riverside. ‘‘We played more for
ball control, while here at Oregon
they run a lot.” Mel stated with a
smile. Mel also hopes to help drop
some of the big teams of the coun
try which Oregon will face.
Paul Sowers, Dick guard, will
be one of the main starts of the
squad. Last year Sowers placed
second in scoring with 273 points,
behind big Rog Wiley. Will Urban

Warren also stated that if tall
Bob Amacher can improve his
shooting, he will be a threat to
the scoring record set by Wiiey.
The team has good spirit and al
ways ready to do anything the
coach tells them to, and always
willing to learn something new,
which will help them improve their

All the men are trying to break in
to the starting five, and no one
knows until the first game who
will be chosen.

The tallest man on the Frosh
team is Chet Noe from Los Ange
les, who was All City in 1949. Chet
is 6 foot 7 inches tall, and one of
the highest scorers in the Los An
geles city schools. Other men
showing up well in the first couple
weeks were; Ken Torgerson, All
District Southern Oregon from
Klamath Falls; Curt Barkeles, All
State at Missoula Montana; Har
len Mickey; Lloyd Bergman; Hon
Hoy, All State in his sophomore
year from Newberg; John Huggins,
All State from Marshfield; Hank
Bonnoman, All State from South
Dakota; Keith Farman, All State
from Salem; Bob Agee.
With all these men, and a large
reserve, Kirsch should sport a
winning team. The floor seems
covered during practice with all
the Frosh trying to get on the
squad. When basketball season
starts, the Green and Yellow
should shine throughout the north
west and Pacific Coast.
