Loss of Jim Powers
May Wreck Trojans
LOS ANGELES — (UP) — Pas
sing whiz Jim Powers of the Uni
versity of Southern California was
declared out for the season today,
just five days before the Trojans
meet UCLA in their annual ‘‘cross
town big' game.”
Powers, greatest passer in Pa
cific Coast Conference history, was
discovered to be suffering from a
blood clot around a bone chip on his
bip, an injury incurred 10 days age
jii USCs game with Stanford.
Loss of the brilliant throwing
quarterback immediately shifted
the odds in Saturday's game. The
Trojans were early one-touchdown
favorites but without their daring
leader apparently will go into the
game at least six-point underdogs.
The injury was the climax to a
long string of crippling blows

In the Days of Old—
When Men Were Bold
It was one of the hardest fought
and cleanest gridiron contests ever
played on any field. That’s what
the Oregonian said about the Web
foot-Oregon Aggie clash of No
vem 16, 1918.
It’s rather difficult to believe
that this could be an exceedingly
clean-fought football game. But
each team was penalized only 80
yards while Oregon counted 12
first downs to 11 for the Aggies.
There was a beautiful blue sky
overhead as the “5000 screeching
fans and fannettes” applauded the
teams on the slightly soggy turf.
The Aggies from Corvallis looked
like winners througotu the first
half. It was thought that they
would run up an overwhelming
score against the Ducks.
The Orange and Black scored
easily in the first period. Star
Quarterback Joe Badley raced
around the Webfoots’ right end
for 21 yards to reach pay dirt.
But he failed to kick the extra
Neither team could push across a
counter in the second quarter.
Then in the second half, the Ore
gon gridsters began to roll. A fum
ble started things off. Francis
Jacobberger, Oregon quarterback,
kicked off and an Aggie fumbled
the pigskin. The Webfoots took ov
er and a series of cross-bucks put
them on the Corvallis 10-yard line.
The Jacobberger brothers,
Francis and Vincent, formerly of
Columbia University, Portland,
kept punching holes in the Aggie
defense. Then Right Half Ever
ett Brandenburg crashed through
for the touchdown, tying the
score. Francis Jacobberger fail
ed to convert the extra point so
the game remained tied 6 to 6.
The hot Eugene eleven could not
be stopped. Early in the fourth per

spot for five more.
