    Extra Point Fatal;
U.O. Loses Thriller
One extra place kick conversion
gave the University of Washington
a 28-27 win over Oregon’s Ducks
Saturday afternoon in Multnomah
Chester Daniels, Oregon’s sure
footed left guard trying fot his 18th
consecutive conversion, missed his
try after the first Webfoot touch
down when the ball went to the left
of the uprights.
That gave Washington a one
point margin, which the Huskies
maintained throughout the game.
Oregon’s hopes ran low late in
the last of the fourth quarter
when Washington scored its final
touchdown and led the score
hoard by a 28-20 count. One min
ute later, Duck fans were on their
feet roaring as halfback Woodley
Lewis took the Husky kick-off on
his 17 yard line, set his cleats
firmly in the turf, raced straight
up the middle, cut to his left, and
was finally downed on the Wash
ington 17 for a run of 07 yards.
Six plays later, the Ducks had
their final score of the day when
Johnny McKay caught Earl Stelle’s
pass in the end zone and Daniels
kicked the extra point. The run by
Lewis upper his kick-off runback
average to 47 yards per carry, ac
cording to unofficial figures.
Washington scored first in the
game after taking the kickoff and
going down the field to the 1 yard
line with sensational passing by
quarterback Don Heinrich. Hein
rich turned fullback on the next
play to buck over for a touchdown
on a quarterback sneak play.
In tiie first half of the game, the
Huskies completed nine passes out
of nine tries for a perfect average.
Oregon’s movement o fthe ball on
ils first touchdown drive, following
the Washington score, was equally
On their first drive in the open
ing period, the Ducks used just
one ttiird down, and that was in
side the Husky 10-yard line on
the last play before scoring. The
Washington line crumpled like
paper before the fierce running
of Dob Sanders, Lewis, McKay,
and George Dell.
When Washington had posses
sion of the ball in the first half, it
was the same story, with an aerial
slant. Oregon simply could not stop
the Husky passing onslaught. The
ball went over the heads of Oregon
defensive men again and again for
long gains. However, the Huskies
failed to.dent the sturdy Duck line
on running plays.
After the opening Oregon score,
Washington roared back in 10 plays
covering 71 yards for their second
counter when Heinrich used tiis
quarterback sneak to score again.
.Ion Rosenzweig again thumped the
entra point.
Oregon retaliated with their next
score in the second period with sev
en plays over G9 yards for a Stelle
to Robinson pass play in the end
zone. Daniels split the goal post
and the score was 14-13 Washing
Again the Huskies scored
through passing by going 65 yards
in 10 plays. McElhenny cracked left
tackle for the TD. Washington nev
er passed the ball over the goal in
the game, but used only ground
plays for scoring.
S telle to Robinson spelled the
next touchdown play for Oregon
after guard Gus Knickrehm re
covered a Husky fumble on the
Washington 9 yard line.
Both teams failed to produce in
the third quarter and the score
stood at 21-20 going into the final
period, with Washington still hold
ing the one point lead.
Washington loosened its
ground attack, coupled with pas
ses, and drove 84 yards in 16
plays for its last score in the final
quarter. Gene Norton put the Ov
al over the goal for the final six
points. Rosen/.weigli had a per
fect afternoon with four kicks
out of four attempts.
Oregon gained its final score af
ter Lewis’ long run-back. The final
count: Washington 28, Oregon 27.
Indians Fear
Idaho,- Bears
Eye Ducks
Stanford University Indians, fresh
from their amazing; victory over
University of Southern California,
i are “definitely taking; Idaho seri
| ous,” Coach Marchie Schwartz said
Pointing out that his club played
far and away its best game of the
season against the Trojans,
Schwartz said there could be no let
down for the Idaho club this Satur
day because his scouts reported
that the Vandals were an “explo
sive” club.
Ray Hammett, Stanford assist
ant coach who scouted Idaho—
“The Vandals have two of the finest
tackles in the conference ill Carl
Kiilsgaard and Wally Overguard.
They also have fine backs in John
Brogan, Bob Mays and Jerry Diehl;
and the finest offensive guard I've
seen this year in Roy Colquitt. I
can’t understand how they lose
Art Leichtman, Oregon — “We
expect to score on California—but
I don't know how many times.
We’ve had a lot of the braks go
against us this year, but maybe the
tide will tin' nnow. Costly errors by
our seven Sophomores on defense
have beaten us in several games.”
Lynn Waldorf, C a 1 i f o rnia—
“Marv Cross, Washington State
fullback, tore our line to shreds. He
is a very fine ball carrier— and so is
that Don Paul. Also, I've worried
more over meeting Oregon than
for any gome this year.”
Joe Verducci, St. Mary’s—‘‘we
played good football for a full game
for the first time this season
against Denver.”

Pro Officials Criticized
By Chicago Bear Coach
CHICAGO, (UP)—Owner-Coach
, George Halas of the Chicago Bears,
in a bitter blast at the officiating
of the National Football Loague
game against the Los Angeles
Rams, charged that “bad judg
ment” by the officials cost his
team the game.
Halas charged that back judge
Norman Duncan made two vital
errors in calling penalties on the
Bears which set_ up two touch
downs for Los Angeles. In addition,
he contended that a bad call by
field judge Rockwell Kemp, gave
the Rams a field goal.
The Rams won the game, 27 to
24, to continue undefeated in the
league’s Western Division with six
victories compared to a three and
three mark for the second place
George Bell
GEORGE BELL, baokfield ace
for the Webfoots, will be in full
prime for t lie University of Cali
fornia tilt Saturday at Berkeley.
“It has been the tradition of the
Bears in 30 years never to com
plain . . . over the loss of a foot
ball game because of bad judg
ment on the part of officials,”
Halas said. “However, in view of
the Clark Shaughnessy blast from
California, I am putting my cards
on the table.”
Shaughnessy, in a statement
Monday, said that Halas Had no
complaint about the officials as
they were appointed by Hugh L.
(Shorty) Hay, who was a “Halas
man.” Shaughnessy also contended
that the pass interference penalty
imposed on the Bears before the
Rams’ last touchdown was justi
“The movies definitely substan
tiate the statement of John Hoff
man, our fullback, that he did not
interfere or face-Guard Vitamin
Smith, Rams halfback, in the end
zone at any time on the play which
set up their winning touchdown.”
Halas said.
