NFL Aerial Artists
Norm Van Brocklin, Oregon’s
great quarterback and passing sen
sation of two seasons ago, leads the
professional National Football Lea
gue in passing today.
Van Brocklin, in his second cam
paign with the Los Angeles Rams,
took over the leadership after his
spectacular performance against
1:he Detroit Lions last Sunday. In
that game he completed 13 out of
17, including five good for touch
His 1950 record now stands at 84
completions out of 151 attempts
0gr a total gain of 1,452 yards and
"The former Duck’s rise to prom
inence has come in spite of the fact
«t!hat he started his pro career as an
•mderstudy to Bob Waterfield, ac
•kaiowledged to be one of the finest
passers in the play-for-play ranks.
Van Brocklin’s passing has been
iihe big reason for the Rams’ rise to
second place in the National Divi
sion of the NFL. It also helped End
Pom Fears to take over the pass re
ceiving honors. He caught six;Sun
day to raise ahis total to 36 catches
■for 568 yards.

NORM VAN BROCKL.IN
After racking up its first victory
of the campaign at the expense of
the Montana Grizzlies here last
weekend, Oregon State’s improving
football team faces another tough
ie this Saturday when it tangles
with the UCLA Bruins in the Los
While the Beavers were scoring
their initial victory, Red Sanders’
Bruins were gaining additional
prestige by whipping Purdue, 20-6,
at Lafayette, Ind. It was UCLA s
fourth victory in six starts this fall.
The Westwooders are still very
much in the running for the PCC
crown with only a one-point loss to
Washington marring their confer
Although it will be a case of two
single wing teams against each
other, Sanders’ version of the for
mation is entirely different from
Orange Coach Kip Taylor’s. The
Bruins operate from a balanced line
while the Beavers run from an un
balanced line and shift into the sin
gle wing from a T. Last year the
Bruins were one of the three clubs
to defeat OSC.
Taylor's biggest problem this
week is how to get his men ready to
play on the lightning fast coliseum
turf. After a week of constant rain,
Oregon State’s practice field is un
der several inches of water.

Commissioner A. B. Chandler said
Wednesday the Pacific Coast Lea
gue probably will be moved to a
higher classification, possibly 4-A
before the start of the 1951 season.
Chandler said a committee
named to study the Pacific Coast
League’s request to be taken from
under the annual draft has decided
to “give relief to the Pacific Coast
League as the facts^ justify. Such
relief may result in a higher classi
fication, possibly 4-A, under the na
tional association structure.”
By remaining in the national as
sociation structure, the PCL would
stay on as a minor circuit under the
jurisdiction of George M. Traut
man, president of the National As
sociation of Professional Baseball

Webb of the New York Yankees;

IM Volleyball Action
Marred By Forfeits
A long, heavy scrimmage ses
sion was served the Duckling foot
ball squad Wednesday afternoon
as it continued to prepare for a
Nov. 11 meeting with the power
ful Washington Pups at Eugene.
In addition to the Washington con
test, a return engagement with
the Oregon State Rooks remains
on the Frosh schedule.
Coach Bill Bowerman described
the drill as “a good, hard work
out marked by the best spirit
we’ve shown so far this season.”
Quarterback Barney' Holland
did *£ the throwing as con
siderable time was spent in an ef
fort to achieve a smooth passing
attack. Versatile Jack Morris al
so tossed several successful passes
from his halfback spot. The pair
aimed the majority of their aerials
at Halfback Cece Hodges, who has
moved into a starting berth, and
Ends Charles Soderberg and Neil
Max Kendig, used as a center
until now, switched to right tackle
during the practice and worked
both on offense and defense. He
performed well enough to secure
a straight berth at that position.
We don’t know the answers.
We’re not sure we’ll find any.
Don’t hold your breath.

Princeton, New Jersey
In Princeton, New Jersey, there is
always a friendly gathering of
Princeton students at the Campus
Center. And as in university cam
pus haunts everywhere, ice-cold
Coca-Cola helps make these get
togethers something to remember.
As a refreshing pause from the
study grind, or when the gang
gathers around—Coke belongs.
Ask for it either way ... both ; •
