Rapid Bill Fell
KILL FELL, speedy Webfoot reserve who saw limited action against
Washington Saturday, is expected to get a chance at the California
Bear ends Saturday when the Ducks take on Cal at Berkeley. Fell,
who will he with the Ducks again next year, is being primed for
action at every opportunity by Coach Jim Aiken.
Frosh Set for Second
Clash With OSC Rooks
Oregon’s Frosh will wind tip their 1949 football season when
they play the Oregon State College Rooks at 2 p. m. Friday on
Bell Field in Corvallis.
Coach Bill Bowerman of the l'rosh says lie expects Hal Moe’s
outfit to look much better than they did in the first contest be
tween the teams Oct. 14 when the Frosh won, 33-6.
FROSH HAVE FAVORITE ROLE
Going- into the second game
favorites, although Bower man
points to the score of both teams
against the Washington Pups as
evidence that the Hooks have im
proved. Washington beat the Rooks
by only a slightly larger margin
than they did the Frosh.
Reaving for Corvallis at about
11:80 Friday, Bowerman will
take with him two injured play
ers. Left End Jake Williams is
presently out of the line-up with
a bud shoulder, but he may be
able to play by Friday.
Kiglit End Emery Barnes is al
so carrying a light injury, but he
probably will be ready to start on
Bell Field. The remainder of the
stpiad, Bowerman said yesterday,
is in top shape for the fray.
Quarterbacking the Ducklings
Friday will be Hal Dunham who
slatted the season with the Frosh,
saw a vacation from the Vanport
game, and is now back in the sig
nal-calling harness.
B.-VCKFIELD NAMED
At halfbacks against the Rooks
will be Don Sloan and Roil Lyman.
Sloan has been used as an end-run
uer and pass receiver most of the
season, while Lyman has looked
good in line smashes and cut backs
through tackle in the line. Carl Er
vin will take his regular fullback
post.
No changes will he made in the
line, tlie Frosh coach stated,
meaning that all regulars, with
the possible exception of Wil- |
bums and Barnes, will start the
game.
Bowerman said the only real ad
vantage his squad had over the
Enby Bevos in the first game was 1
the Ducklings will he definite
Jake Williams, who was at his best
in that contest.
"The two teams will be evenly
matched for this game,” Bowerman
asserted.
Order of "0" Meets
Order of the “O” will meet to
day noon at the Delta Upsilor
house to discuss plans for Home
coming-, Jim Bartelt, president, an
nounced.
Saturady's Berkeley game will

Injuries Worry Aiken
As Ducks Leavefor Cal.
The underdog Oregon football
team will leave at 7:30 p.m. today
on the Southern Pacific Cascade
for Berkeley and the unbeaten Cal
ifornia Bears.
Head Coach Jim Aiken said last
night his squad is suffering from
more injuries than at any time this
year. Although none of these
bumps are serious, several threaten
to sideline key men in the Duck
line-up.
Suffering from a leg injury is
Johnny McKay, elusive halfback
who saw extensive action in last
week’s Washington fray.
Fullback Bob Sanders has a
badly bruised side where he'took
a Husky knee in the first half of
last Saturday’s contest. The
bruise was aggravated by San
der’s full-time action in the sec
ond half of the game.
Sidelined with a knee injury is
End Darrell Robinson. All three
men will probably be in shape for
the Cal battle, but are likely to be
put out of the game if hit in the
wrong place.
AIKEN WORRIED
Several other players are also
suffering from minor injuries, Aik
en said.
“The situation has me badly
worried,” the head mentor declar
ed.
Aiken scrimmaged his fit play
ers with pads against California
plays. He expressed worry over
the way the Webfoot defense
against many of these plays is
shaping up, but said the team
“looked good” as a whole.
Two changes in the defensive
line-up were listed by Aiken yes
terday. Hay Karnofski will put in
time at the defensive right half
spot and Hale Paxton will see ac
tion at the right end position on de
fense. The head coach indicated
there may be other changes in the
defensive squad before the final
gun of the 'Bear hunt.
BACKFIELD READY TO GO
Gentleman Jim listed as his
starting backfield for the Berkeley
battle the quartet of Earl Stelle at
quarterback, Woodley Lewis and
George Bell at halfbacks, and Bob
Sanders at the fullback post. Bell’s
ankle is almost completely healed,
Aiken stated, and there is little
chance that it will impede the
charging senior’s progress.
Thirty-seven players will take
the trip to the Southland.
The Webfoot contingent will
Swim Team Sees Good
Season in ND Competition
Preparing for the 1950 season,
Coach John Borchardt’s varsity
swimmers have been training hard
in the University pool during re
cent weeks.
The Ducks will open the season
Feb. 4 at Corvallis when they re
new their old rivalry with Oregon
State College.
With only four paddlers lost
from the 1949 squad and with
tlie return of two members of
the honorary All-Time Oregon
team, prospects for a successful
season are excellent.
The two members of the All
Time team, Lotuis Santos and Jim
Stanley, both gained valuable
points for Oregon last spring at
the Northern Division meet, in
which the Ducks captured third
place.
Stanley won the Northern Divi
sion diving championship and could
easily repeat in 1950.
TWO 1948 MEN BACK
Among the other returnees from
the 1949 squad are Tom Nekota,
