Our Webfoots may not be having any success in Pacific Coast
Conference play this season, but if misery loves company they
have plenty of it. Take a look at the loop. No less than four teams
are still looking for that first conference victory. In addition to
the Ducks, Southern Cal, Oregon State and Washington State
all have goose eggs in the win column.
We see where one USC lineman turned up missing the other
day after being told he was out for the season due to an injury.
Authorities feared he may have done something desperate. It
strikes us that this is carrying the attitude that football is the be
all-and-end-all a trifle far. It rather smacks of the good old days
when Yale coaches sent their charges into battle with the exor
tation, “You’ll never do anything in life as important as playing
football against Harvard.”
As for the rest of the Trojans, who went all the way to Balti
more to lose their third of the season, they would probably be
just as happy if they didn’t have to return to Los Angeles. The
wolves among the alumni will no doubt be out for Jeff Cravath’s
scalp if he doesn’t start winning soon. All ready, LA sports
scribes are suggesting that the Trojan mentor be locked up on
Saturday afternoons. Losers never were popular at SC.
This corner hopes that the cynics who were proclaiming that
dq^ing football teams and spirited student bodies don’t go to
gether were on hand during the last quarter against St. Marys.
It isn’t all in winning, but more in having a will to win which
brings out those cheers. The wildest rooting section the coast
has seen in years was Stanford’s when the Indians were in the
process of losing nine in a row in 1947.
Oregon in their last couple of outings has been singularly un
lucky in running up against thoroughly aroused ball clubs in
Idaho and St. Marys. This isn’t meant to alibi the losses, by the
way, but is just offered by way of observation. Until they met the
Ducks, both the Vandals and the Gaels had lines which perform
ed like sieves. Along comes Oregon and the forward walls start
emulating the proverbial immovable object.
The All-American Out
We’ll chalk up an assist for the St. Mary’s tub-thumpers in
Saturday’s Gael victory. They touted John Henry Johnson as the
• greatest ba«k to come out of Moraga since Herman Wedemeyer,
and with the smiling cooperation of all of us so-called sports
writers, had everyone believing their boy would do everything
but pull rabbits out of his helmet between halves. John Henry
turned out to be an All-American fizz, whose actions on attempt
ed punt returns very nearly did more for the Ducks than they
were able to accomplish on their fewn hook. Meanwhile, Marcelli,
Jarvis and the valiant Gael line played like men possessed.
A rivalry which has been going on more or less regularly
since 1915 will be renewed Saturday when the Ducks take on
USC in the Coliseum at LA. The record stands at three wins
for Oregon, 12 for the Trojans, and one tie. The SC machine
has sputtered and backfired through four games without a win
so far this season, a fact which Trojan supporters are having
trouble digesting. It’s been the opinion of the smart money that
the men of Troy will be hard to stop when they get aroused,
but so far they’ve shown no signs of being the Rose Bowl
bound outfit some thought they were.
Southern Cal’s best effort during the current campaign was
against California, but sub Quarterback Ed Demerjian blew that
o* when he missed a handoff on the next to last play of the game
with the ball on Cal’s one yard line. Ralph Pucci, the fullback
who was supposed to have received the ball, went into the end
zone with nothing but air clutched in his hot little hands. If the
Bears get to the Rose Bowl, they can look back on this once-in-a
thousand play as the one which paved the way.
Fall of the Miphty
Last weekend was a black one all over the northwest, with
Washington and Oregon State taking it on the chin along with
Oregon. The power of the Big Ten showed itself anew as Illinois
dropped Washington from the ranks of the unbeaten. The loss,
of course, won’t affect the Huskies’ conference standing. They re
main tied for first with California. The two clubs get together
Nov. 4 at Seattle, in a tilt which could well decide the conference
championship. There is the possibility, though, that Washington
avill get derailed next Saturday as they go against Stanford at
The Indians saw their dreams for an unbeaten season go up in
smoke as UCLA rose up to smack them 21-7. It was Stanford’s
debut in solid competition, and the Big Red machine proved un
equal to the test. The results bode ill for Coach Marchie
Schwartz, the swami who held students and grads alike in the
palm of his hand when the Indians weren't winning anything but
moral victories. Before this season started, it was rumored that
if Stanford didn’t reach the Rose Bowl, Marchie would be spend
ing the winter looking for a job. They aren’t out of it yet, of
course, but it will take a win over the Huskies to put them back
Native Garb Adds Color
To Foreign Reception
By Marge Elliott
“This is like a small-scale Unit
ed Nations meeting, only nobody
ia fighting here,” Oscar Hoesal,
German exchange student, remark
ed at the Foreign Students Re
ception Wednesday night in the
Student Union ballroom.
The entire second floor of the
SU was turned over to the group
which included, besides the gaily
dressed foreign students, both
University and civic officials, as
well as many people from the Eu
University students acted as
hosts to the guests, introducing
theih and assisting them in meet
ing other townspeople.
Many of the foreign students
wore their native costumes, which
ranged in texture and style from
short leather pants, exposing bare
knees, to vivid silk and velvet
Chinese gowns. Each foreign stu
dent wore a badge with his name
and country, so that the guests
could easily distinguish him from
the student representatives present.
James Kline, foreign student
adviser, requested that the for
eign students wear the dress of
their homeland to the reception.
Many of the foreign students re
marked that they felt more com
fortable in Western dress, which
is worn as commonly in their
countries as in the United States.
The program for the evening in
cluded several numbers by the Eu
gene Gleeman. Kline acted as
master of ceremonies, introducing
all the foreign students.
Barry Mountain, ASUO presi
dent, and Eldon Johnson, dean of
the College of Liberal Arts, greet
ed the students, and welcomed
them to Oregon and the United
Miss Lois Greenwood, YWCA
secretary, explained the Foreign
Student’s Friendship Foundation
which co-sponsored the reception
with the University Religious
“Approximately 500 guests at
tended the reception,” Kline said.
“Many of them had contacted us
before to find out how they could
meet the foreign students and in
vite them to their homes to help
them get a wider scope of Ameri
Kline stated that Oregon now
has over a 100 foreign students,
which gives the University a high
er proportional number of such
students than any other American
Correct Campus Dress Revealed
Correct meanings of terms denoting campus dress have been re
vealed by Miss Dana Lind, social-standards chairman. The list of
Formal dress” indicates that men wear tuxes, dinner jackets or
dark suits, and women wear formals. For “semi-formal,” men wear
business suits while women again wear formals.
For “informal,” men wear business suits or coats and ties- for
the women it's short dresses, silk or wool, and heels. “Campus
clothes” denotes slacks, cords or similar apparel with sweaters
shirts without ties, or wool shirts for the men; women wear sweat
ers and skirts or casual dresses, with saddles and flats.
Miss Lind made this announcement to prevent confusion among
freshmen as well as old students.
Adopted Kitty Leaves New*Home
Esther from Nestor is gone.
Esther from Nestor, a small grey and white kitten of uncertain par
entage wandered into the hall three days ago, and promptly adopted
the hall and Mercer King, freshman business administration student.
Thursday the pussy didn’t return to her abode high atop a double
deck bunk, so King set out bowls of heated milk—spiced with catniD—
but still no Esther. y
If anyone sees Esther running around the campus or hunting through
garbage cans behind the SU, King wishes they would tell her that the
milk is still warm and all is forgiven.
