A week ago today the world of football departed from nor
mal or anything resembling normality—and miserably upset ev
ery one s dope cart. Phis department was no exception. Of
course, Michigan has a team that could beat anybody—but the
Wolverines were not supposed to beat Minnesota. No football
team was supposed to, but try telling that to Michigan.
Great and Green
On th local scene, one of baseball’s all-time great second base
men, Joe Gordon, denied any truth to the rumor that his playing
days are over. Said rumor hinted that the former University of
Oregon star would give up the major league ghost of a waning
career to take over the proposed Eugene professional club. Gor
don also squelched that angle. He didn't say yes and he didn’t say
Oregon s unpredictable football team, an eleven that is com
posed of part greatness, part greenness, this afternoon will take
to the turf of a stadium that has felt the impressions of the great
1 est gridiron cleats of our time.
It is only the second time that a Pacific Coast’club has man
aged to get into Iowa Stadium. The first was UCLA. Jim Aiken’s
men will follow in the foot steps of the Four Horsemen. Red
Grange, Tommy Harmon, Sam Francis, George Frank,Otto Gra
ham. and many others. There in the land of elms and maples,
where the corn grows tall, and the hospitality of the people is as
big as that corn—there Oregon will make a bid for recognition;
the same sort they got by losing a close one to mighty Michigan
a year ago.
•from anotner angle, it tne VVebtoots conquer the Hawkeyes,
and that is a large “if,” they will be on a gridiron pedestal—
through comparative scores, that is. Iowa heat Northwestern;
Northwestern topped Michigan; Michigan cut Minnesota short.
Consequently, Oregon could nip Michigan, and just toy around
with the Golden Gophers; compare—comparison proves?'5
An Amoeba's Chance
In the East, ARMY continues on its undefeated way against
VMI; up and coming Boston College should meet its master in
VILLANOVA; BOSTON U. shouldn’t have much trouble with
Scranton, and CORNELL’S Big Red is set to snafu the Colum
bia Lion. FORDHAM is expected to aveneg last year’s 35-0
slaughter at the hands of Georgetown; HOLY CROSS rates the
nod over Harvard—this one could be poison though—. MARY
LAND over South Carolina; DARTMOUTH over Yale;
PRINCETON over Rutgers; PENN STATE over Syracuse;
PENN over Pitt, and NOTRE DAME way over Navy (at Bal
OHIO STATE looks good against Northwestern in one of
the Midwest’s top ball games today, and we’ll climb back on the
MICHIGAN bandwagon against the Fighting Illini. Nebraska
'doesn’t stand an amoeba’s chance against the roaring Bengals
from down MISSOURI way; MINNESOTA has Purdue all
sewed up. The same for MICHIGAN STATE vs. Temple. KAN
SAS should shock Kansas State; WISCONSIN over Indiana;
OKLAHOMA A&M to stop Detroit, and OKLAHOMA over
Iowa State.
Down in Huey Long’s old stomping ground, the Southland,
GEORGIA and GEORGIA TECH rate support over Alabama
and Duke respectively in the best games below the Line. TU
LANE is too strong for Mississippi State to swallow, and N.
CAROLINA should stop Tennessee. LOUISIANA STATE ov
er Mississippi, and we like WAKE FOREST over Clemson. To
step out of line with the rest of the troops, TEXAS over South
ern Methodist and—watch it now—CINCINNATI over Ken
No Flag—No Dough—No, No
The usually glib world of sports was rocked somewhat by re
ports that only half of the Amercan public attend athletic events
even on occasion. A great number exchange cash for ducats only
once or twice a year, while a very small percentage attend as
much as 35 events annually. This news coupled with what has
been established as the adverse effect of television would tend to
produce empty football stadiums, and crumble plenty of houses
-—including the one that Ruth built, liut in the face of these
facts, the attendance figures at a big game, or a hot series are as
tronomical (especially the financial figures.) It seems that no one
in baseball is having too much trouble in the profit and loss de
partment with the possible exception of Horace Stoneham. But
then the Giants have not even caught the faint odor of a pennant
^ince 1937.

15-1 and 15-12.

that put them in the intramural
football finale as they pinned Nes
tor Hall in net action 15-1 and 15
12. Westminster batted their way
to 15-12 and 15-7 victories over the
Legal Eagles.

Three Teams
Still Undefeated
Kappa Sigma, Sigma Nu, and Chi
Psi remained undefeated in “A”
league volleyball games Thursday
afternoon, while Sherry Ross, Cher
ney Hall, and Sigma Alpha Epsi
lon annexed their first victories of

deadlocked for first place in Lea
gue 6, both squads remaining unde
feated. Sigma Nu had a bad time
before the sot was completed as it

lost the second game to the revital
ized Sederstroms.

Orangemen Meet
WSC in Corvallis
traditional interstate rivals
Washington State and Oregon
State will clash on the gridiron
for the 38th time on Bell Field
in Corvallis today in the feature
event of Homecoming on the
Beaver campus.
Anything can happen in this
series—just ask the fans who
saw the two clubs battle to a
26-26 tie at Pullman last year—
but the Cougars probably will
go into the game slight favor
ites because of their great speed
and their much stronger show
ing against UCLA, the only
common opponent so far. The
Bruins whipped the Beavers,
35-13, but had to fight from be

With the reassuring word
from Dr. Waldo Ball, team
physician, that Ken Carpenter,
brilliant Oregon State left half,
should be fully recovered for
the homecoming game, the
Beavers will be at full strength
for the Cougar invasion.
Carpenter played less than a
minute against Stanford last
week and his loss was a crip
pling blow to the Beaver of
fense. Teaming with the senior
ace in the starting Orange
back field will be Gene Morrow,
