Minturn, Phi Delts,
ATOs, Nestor Clash
bi Semi-Finals Today
By Jim Mendenhall
It’s Minturn against the Phi Delts and ATO against Nestor in
the intramural football semi-finals this afternoon. Those afore
mentioned teams proved their gridiron prowess I uesday after
noon as they continued their winning habits at the expense of
Beta Theta Pi, Pi Kappa Alpha, and Sigma Nu. Nestor drew a
bye during the quarter-finals.
Although all teams were pressed
to the utmost, Phi Delta Theta was
the only squad whose issue was
ever in doubt. The Phi Delts almost
lost their winning 7-6 margin in the
final period when the Betas racked
up a first down on the winners’ six
yard line. Four plays failed to reach
paydirt, however, and the Phi Delts
took over on downs.
After a scoreless first quarter,
Bob Wilcox hauled down a 25-yard
aerial from rubber-armed Nick
Schmer for a Phi Deft touchdown.
Schmer then rifled another pass
to Jim Livesay for the all-import
The Betas quickly retaliated
with a 30-yard scoring pass from
Allan Mann to Hal Webb. How
ever, the conversion attempt fail

Tom was the sparkplug for the
victors as he scored the first touch

Santos for the other two tallies. The
first six-pointer came in the first
quarter when Tom carried the ball

secutive first downs. The game

ATO nosed out Minturn for high
point honors by capturing a 20-0
victory over the Sigma Nus.
Hobart Marvin proved his back
field versatility by passing for one
touchdown and scoring two others
on runs. The winners scored in the
first quarter on the day’s first play.
Marvin threw a pitch-out to Dan
Cudahy, who tossed back to Mar

LOS ANGELES Although only
six week of the 1950 season have
passed, the emphasis on passing
makes it highly probable that
both the pass completion and re
ceiving records for the Pacific
Coast Conference will be broken.
Jim Powers of USC set the com
pletion record last season with 87
connections in nine games. Don
Heinrich of Washington has 10
games in which to improve that
.mark, and has 37 completions in
three contests. At the end of three
games last year Powers had 27
completed passes. Heinrich needs
tout a fraction over seven comple
tions in each of his next seven
outings to better the record.
Mark In Danger
Heinrich also luis a good chance
to better the PCC marks for yards
passing and touchdown passes.
The current marks, also set by
.Powers, are 1,215 yards and 12
touchdowns. Heinrich has a three
game total of 574 and five.
The pass receivers also have ex
cellent opportunities to erase the
1.HX’ receiving record of 81 for a
season. Hay Bauer of Montana and
Harrell Itobinson of Oregon estab
lished the mark in 1949. In three
games Bill McC'oll, Stanford end,
has hauled in 14. John Thomas,
wingman. has 18 receptions in
two games. Hot on the trail are

Meet Chet 2> o-nieli.
His Toe Is Foe's Woe
By Bill Gurney
In this day of football specialists,
varsity Guard Chester Daniels
breaks all the rules. Last year he
not only scored the uprights for 46
points to lead the nation’s place
kickers, but also found time to play
317 minutes of high class football.
Chet is known to the paying cus
tomers as “Cool Papa” but when
asked how he got the name, he said
“You’ll have to ask Dick Strite
about that. I just looked in the pa
pers one morning and there it was.
Just more copy, I guess.” Chet talks
with a nice, relaxed Southern drawl
that is full of quiet humor.
“Where did you learn to place

kick like that?”
school and then when Van Brocklin
hurt his leg, I tried it here.”
When he kicks, Chet has the nov
el habit of reaching down and pluck
ing a blade of grass after his foot
meets the ball. He says this helps
him concentrate on his follow
through. It’s not a habit that be
trays nervousness in any form.
Chet was born and grew up in
Bellaire, Ohio, where he played four
years of high school football and
also was a basketball and track
He broke into the Webfoot de
fensive lineup as a sophomore on
the Van Brocklin-sparked Cotton
Bowl club. At 5 feet, 9 inches, and
139 pounds, Chet is not what you
would call a large lineman. Still, if
first string All-Coast honors mean
anything, Chester can take care of
himself in fine style when the going
“Well, Cool Papa, in which game
did you feel the least cool ?” he was
“Yellin’ and Hollerin’ ”
“Oh, I guess it was that St.
Marys game in 1948. Things got
pretty rugged with everybody yel
lin’ and hollerin’, and I had td kick
a conversion right in the last min
ute of play.’’
In case you’re forgotten, Oregon
won that one, 14-13. Chet doesn’t
miss many extra points. Last year
his batting average was .912 and he
is currently working on a skein of
10 straight which was inaugurated
in the Washington tilt last year.
Chet is a Business Administra
tion major who hopes to own his
own business someday, or perhaps
enter public relations work.
In the past few summers, he has
done everything from mining coal
to working on a mill green chain.
Chet, in company with several
other people, has a very high re
spect for the football talents of
Montana’s Tom Kingsford:
“He’d be All-America material if
he went to a bigger school,” is his
In regard to the Rose Bowl, Ches
ter had this to say:
“I think it's between Stanford
and Washington, but then you
never can tell about football.”
SPOKANE—Iff)— George Chal
ich and Dale Thomason, sophomore
reserves on the University of Wash
ington basketball team last season,
have decided not to return to Se
attle for school this year.
Chalich has enrolled at Gonzaga
and Thomason at Eastern Washing
ton College at Cheney. The two
were high-scoring stars at Central
Valley High School here in 1948.
Chalich was a unanimous All-State
Both saw little action with the
Huskies last year.
Chalich said the two had decided
to enroll at schools closer to home.
They live in the Spokane Valley.
High scores in bowling on the
Student Union alleys last week
were rolled by Vern Thompson,
Stan Ray Hall, with 219; and Betty
Towata, Susan Campbell Hall, with
172. Both of these bowlers are
awarded 10 free lines of bowling.
Each week the highest total scor
ed by a male and the highest total
scored by a female will be pub
lished in the Emerald and they will
receive 10 free lines of bowling.
There will be an Order of the “O”

As Jim Aiken
Coach Jim Aiken continued to
experiment with new backfield
combinations yesterday afternoon
as he ran the Ducks through a
sharp scrimmage in preparation
for Saturday’s game against the
Idaho Vandals’'at Moscow.
Bob Carey, the surprising back
who was plucked last week from
the ranks of the unknowns and
ran wild against Montana, was
shifted from fullback to right half.
This move will pave the way for
the return of Bobo Moore to the
fullback slot. Moore was sidelined
during the Montana game with
an injured leg, but will be ready
for action again this week.
Ron Lyman, who performed well
in the Frosh-reserve scrimmage
Monday afternoon, was moved
over to left half behind Tommy
Edwards. Chuck Missfeldt continu
ed to roll up yardage in practice^,
and will undoubtedly see plent^jf

It appears that the starting
backfield will probably consist of
Earl Stelle at quarter, Edwards
at left half, Moore at full, and
Carey at right half. Stelle was

straight long pitches at one point

MOSCOW, Idaho—(.JP)—The Ida

one game, 33 in another and yet
lost them both, ran through a long
scrimmage session Tuesday with
the accent on defense.
