WO Victory
Ends Long
Loss Spell
By Charles Peterson
Playing on their home field
for the first time this season,
the Oregon Ducks notched their
first vein of the 1950 campaign
Saturday by beating a stub
born Montana University elev
en 21-13. Oregon had to come
from behind to gain the victory
which broke a seven-game losing
streak extending back to the mid
dle of the 1949 season.
It was superior line play coup
led to the powerful running of
Bob Carey and the passing of Earl
Stelle which enabled the Webfoots
to subdue the Grizzlies who were
led by their quarterback Tom
Kingsford, the outstanding player
of the game.
Carey Surprises
L In Carey, a former defensive
halfback who was starting his first
game with the offensive platoon,
Coach Jim Aiken may have found
the key to the Oregon running

radically in the Ducks’ opening
games against UCLA and Califor
The 185 pound halfback from La
Grande carried the ball 15 times for
a net gain of 105 yards, an average
of 7 yards per carry. He also scored
the first Oregon touchdown as he
took an 18 yard' pass from Stelle on
the Montana 45 and raced the rest
of the way into the end zone un
Daniels Kicks Three
The other Oregon scores came
on a freak pass completion from
Stelle to end Jake Williams, who
caught the 29 yard toss in the
end zone after it had been deflect
ed into the air by a Montana de
fender, and a seven yard off tackle
smash by fullback Chuck Miss
feldt at the end of a 53 yard drive
in the third quarter. Guard Chet
Daniels converted after all three

Bat Baffles Babes
But Misses Meal
A lonely bat was looking for
a free meal in John Straub Hall
Saturday night.
Startled coeds, ducked, squeal
ed, and even ran out of the din
ing hall, as the “flying mouse”
swooped and dived from skylight
to table. One young woman was
observed peeping through an
outside window whispering, “Is
it gone?”
After a half-score attacks, the
creature shot upward toward the
high paneled windows and dis
Maybe he's still up there,

By Don Smith
A pleasant little comedy that
was an entertaining curtain rais
er for the regular University
Theater season, ‘‘John Loves
i Mary,” played Friday and Satur
day nights to appreciative audi
I ences.
The comedy, particularly time-,
ly now because of the Korean
situation, relates the story of a
senator's daughter and her at
tempt to get married to her boy
friend, who has just returned
from overseas. Unknown to the
• girl, the soldier is already mar
ried to an English girl.
Leads Entertaining
^Jlmarie Wendel was successful
as the Mary who John loves, and
Don Van Boskirk had a nice sense
of comedy as the John who loves
Willard Winterringer was fine
and extremely funny as Fred Tay
lor, the man for whom John had
married the English girl, Lily.
John wanted to get Lily to Ameri
ca, let her get a Reno divorce
and then have her marry Fred
who had been in love with Lily
in England. Only trouble is—Free
has gotten over his undying love
for Lily, has met and married ar
American girl, and is going to b<
a father.
Desire Immediate Marriage
Mary and her parents want ai
immediate marriage; but Lily
adeptly portrayed by Pat Saund
ers (a newcomer to the Univer

get a divorce unless she is sure
she can find another man to

in act three, when John and Fred
discover that Lily was married to
ex-Lt. O’leary (Louie the louse),
portrayed remarkably “heelishly”
by Faber DeChaine. The feeling
is that Lily and Louie deserve each
This complicated plot was handl
ed with remarkable clarity by the
author, Norman Krasna, and the
i cast, directed by Ottilie Seybolt.
, The play, as directed by Mrs. Sey
- bolt, kept the audience wonder
ing just how things were going
to turn out; there •••as really no
doubt that things would end hap
pily- but there were those sus
penseful moments.
Yosburg Good
Tru Vosberg turned in one of
the most eompetent performances
of the evening. Her sense of
comedy was charming, and she
frequently drew laughs by her re
actions, as well as by splendid
handling of lines.
Donn Doak as the Senator was
sufficiently Senatorilish; and Bliss
Stanley as a Red Cross represent
ative was humorously stuffy.
