Goldilocks had a lot of trouble with bears in her day but her
woes were indeed minor compared to those confronting the Web
foot football squad during the first three weeks of the season.
California’s Bears and UCLA’s Bruins have gorged themselves
on Webfoot porridge, and there’s no reason to believe Montana’s
Grizzlies don’t have serious intentions of getting their share.
In the four meetings Oregon has had with Montana, this, par
ticular bruin was a rather moth-eaten affair evidently just out
of hibernation. The first battle between the two members of these
northern woods occurred in 1928, when the Webfoots copped a
31-6 victory—the only time Montana has been able to score. It
was 13-0 for Oregon in 1934, 38-0 in 1940, and 34-0 in 1946.
Next Saturday, however, Jim Aiken’s boys will be facing a
team which has tallied 80 points in beating Eastern Washington,
52-0, and Idaho, 28-27.
Coach Ted Shipkey, in his second year at Missoula, will be
bringing his “Shipkey Accordian Shuffle Shift” to Eugene. What
next? First it was Red Sanders and his “horse and buggy single
wing with television in the dashboard” offensive, and now this.
We should be ashamed of our unimaginative, plain old T-forma
ti|)li. The Montana mentor’s SAjBS, as we might call it, uses
spread variations of the T-formation to carry out a high-geared
passing and running game.
The two big boys in this attack have been Quarterback Tom
Kingsford and End Ray Bauer.
Kingsford’s passing brought the Grizzlies from behind three
times in the Idaho upset. He threw for one touchdown and scor
ed twice himself after his passes had set up the opportunities.
The 175-pound senior tossed 55 passes for 750 yards in 1949, for
a 48.5 per cent completion record. Rated by many coaches and
sportswriters as the best passer in the Northwest, Kingsford will
be one of Montana’s two candidates for national recognition this
The other one is Bauer, a 187-pound senior, who holds the Pa
cific Coast Conference pass completion record. Bauer broke the
record, set in 10 games by Oregon’s Dick Wilkins in 1948, with
31 catches for 455 yards in nine.games last season. In addition to
his offensive ability, the three-year letterman is rated a great
defensive player—fast and ferocious. This bright spot on the
1950 Grizzly edition is called “Moon” around the “university
with a mountain on its campus.”
Deep Green Shade
Montana cap-and-gowned 19 members of the 1949 squad, some
with four years of experience, which leaves Shipkey with what
he considers a green team. The Grizzlies are loaded with depth,
however, according to scouting reports by Johnny McKay, with
a heavier team all the way around. The team averages 192
pounds, the starting line 205, and the starting backfield 189.
The halfback spots appear to be the weakest positions on the
team, with two seniors, Jack King and Don Campbell, returning.
Bob Byrnes and Paul Wold are the other two returning letter
men in the halfback berths.
Backing up Kingsford as field generals are John White, a JC
transfer; and two sophomores, Paul Grein and Dick Shodoan.
Tiie fullback load is shared by Bob Bates, 215-pound pile-driver
junior bothered by injuries; Carol Matye, a senior used on de
fense ; and three sophomores, Gene Carlson, Loren Laird, and
Grizzlies Have Wings
The positions with the best outlook are the wing posts. In addi
tion to Bauer, there’s Dick Doyle, a 190-pound senior, who cap
tured the PCC discus crown last spring. Another good end is Don
Gerlinger, 200-pound sophomore from Chicago. Gerlinger is the
boy whose conversion placement with three minutes left gave
Montana its win over Idaho. He missed his first try but an off
side penalty gave him another chance, which he made good. A
half dozen juniors and sophomores fill out the bottom of the bag.
Team Captain Ken Campbell and veteran Bob Anderson carry
most of the load at center.
Two parts of the Shipkey accordian certain not to fold are the
guards and tackles, where each spot is loaded with at least three
men in serious contention for starting berths.
Sophomore members of the Grizzly squad to bear watching are
Quarterback Grein ; Fullbacks Carlson and Laird; Halfbacks Bill
Baker and Bob Graves; and Guards Bob Antonick and Gordon
Montana, evidently tired of b'eing percentage fodder for other
PCC teams, has moved out of the conference this season, so Sat
urday’s contest will have no bearing on the Webfoots’ standing
i^the circuit. With 16 veterans returning this year, strengthened
by JC transfers and material from the Frosh squad, Montana is
expected to win at least half of its games this season.

Restaurant Trade Down,
But SU Only One Cause
By Howard Lindbeck
Will the Student Union cafeteria
and fountain hurt the business of
privately owned restaurants near
the campus ?
Opinions of the proprietors and
managers of the different eating
places were obtained on the sub
ject through a series of interviews
Wednesday. The general reaction
was that business is definitely
poorer than in other years. But
none of the spokesmen placed the
blame entirely on the SU.
“We can't blame it on the SU,”
said Jerry Proctor, manager of
Del’s Inn. “It just seems like the
kids aren’t getting out.” Due to
the drop in business Del’s Inn now

“Doc” Ireland, owner of the

policy of deferred living is as re
