By McClure
At Program
Webfoot Line Coach Bob Mc
Clure stated Wednesday night that
California has “three of the fin
est running backs that I’ve seen
in college.” He predicted that
Coach Pappy Waldorf’s star soph
omore fullback, John Olszewski,
will be “one of the nation’s best
for three years.”
McClure’s remarks were includ
ed in his excellent scouting report
on the California-Santa Clara
game and preceded the Oregon
UCLA game movies, which were
shown to students in the Student
Union ballroom.
Count ’em
McClure praised the Golden
Bear ground attack, although he
described the quarterbacking as
“not good’’. He mentioned that 52
Bears played in the Santa Clara
game. The Cal defensive efforts
were sparked by Left Half Carl
Van Heuit, who intercepted four
out of the five aerials thrown into
his territory.
First Movies
McClure was introduced by Ath
letic Director Leo Harris, who in
turn was introduced by Student
Union Director Dick Williams.
The movies, which were excellent,
were the first shown in the SU.
Oregon Coach Jim Aiken furn
ished an interesting and amusing
commentary to the pictures. He
praised the running of Left Half
Tommy Edwards but appeared un
satisfied with the performances
of the Webfoot ends. He stated
that Oregon’s offensive pass pro
tection was “good” and that the
punting was “very good."

Charles Defeats Louis
The Brown Bomber has been
We have lived to see the birth
and death of an era; the rise and
fall of the greatest name profes
sional boxing produced in out
times, possibly the greatest of
them all.
Ezzard Charles pounded out a
unanimous 15 round decision over
Joe Louis Wednesday night in a
championship bout at 1 ankee Sta
Charles, previously recognized
as champion in 47 states, proved
his mettle before New York
state’s doubting Thomases, by pull
ing out 12-3, 13-2, and 105 ver
dicts from the officials.
During his professional ring
career Louis fought 61 bouts, pre
vious to last night, winning 52 by
knockouts, 8 by decision, and los
ing only 1, that by a knockout.
No more can we turn to the
sports section to read about the
smashing fists of Joe Louis, who
pulverized his way across the ath
letic heavens*of a nation and a
planet as a bolt of lightning rips
and snorts through black clouds.
Joe Louis is not just a man—he is
an era.
It is strange indeed to think of
boxing and no longer feel the dom
inant presence of the dynamic ma
chine. History will long honor that
sweaty Chicago night in the sum
mer of 1937 when a young, ripping,
brown-skinned kid knocked the
props out from under the aging
Jim Braddock and launched the
spectacular flight of the Brown
And it will remember, too, that
night in September of 1950 when
the curtain rang down on the
same fighter, and the bell was
tolled by the champion of them all,
There is no credit being taken
from Ezzard Charles. He has
proven himself well, but his fire
burns before him. Before the
guillotine of time falls on the
new champion, perhaps he will
prove even greater than the felled
Bomber. But now it is the end of
an old era rather than the begin
ning of a new one that counts.
