Oreaon Set for Golden Bears
Aiken to Send Team
Through Light Workout
Today on Bear Turf
By JOHN BARTON
Head Coach Tim Aiken will put his Duck charges through a
■workout in the University of California Stadium today after ar
riving in Berkeley at 10 a.m. on the Southern Pacific Cascade.
The Oregon squad left Eugene at 7:30 p.m. yesterday.
Headquarters for the Ducks during their stay in the South
land will he an estate in the Berkeley Hills. Aiken originally

but decided against it early this

Bear hunt will be the condition of
Bob Celeri, star California quarter
back, who has broken just about
every offensive record ever kept on
the Cal campus.
According to the United Press
sports reports of Wednesday, Ce
leri definitely will not be able to
play Saturday. On the other
hand, word comes just as em
phatically from the Cal athletic
news bureau that Celeri will be
in shape for the contest.
Another factor in the battle
could be the presence of a wet field.
Drizzling rain has been visiting
the Bay area for the past week.
Oregon’s closest touch with a wet
field this season was in the Colo
rado game, where a slight trace of
moisture was on the turf from an
early morning rain.
That slight bit of water failed to
impede Duck progress against the
hapless Buffaloes, however, and is
no real indication of what they
would look like on a really muddy

advantage. The Webfoots are de
pendent upon fast backs and line

their passing, especially with the
heavy Cal line in front of them.
California, as well, is depend
ent upon passing, with some
tricky running on the side. Any
mud on the grass is just as likely
to hamper the lumbering of the
Bear as it will the strutting of
In the Cal line-up for the second
time this season will be All-Pacific
Coast Halfback Jack Swaner. The
tricky runner will not start the con
test, but will, according to the Cal
Student News Bureau, see plenty
of action. Swaner was a running
mate of Jacky Jensen’s last year.
As was the case in the late Wash
ington game, both teams will prob
ably use the flat kick for kick-offs.
California will be booting to keep
the ball away from Woodley Lewis,
who now has a kick-off runback
average of 49.3 yards per try.
Oregon will try just as hard to
keep the kick-offs from Bear
Halfback Frank Brunk, who is
no slouch at returning the oval in
his own right.
While the flat kick-off, almost as
short and dangerous as the on-side
kick, gives the other team the
chance of starting their scrimmage
near mid-field, it also cuts out the
chance of a fast man getting the
