Most of Thursday’s drill was
spent in running plays against no
opposition in an effort to improve
precision. A few new plays, de
signed especially to be used against
the WSC type of defense, were
given considerable attention.
Despite the wet weather which
lias prevailed here and is expect
ed this weekend, three of Orgon’s
quarterbacks — Earl Stelle, Hal
Dtinham, and Jim Calderwood—

the week. Dunham threaded the

Served Long and Well
By Bill Gurney
Back in 1945, a husky freshman end won his first varsity “O"
for Tex Oliver’s Oregon Webfoots. Boh Anderson is his name,
and the current season is his fourth for the Ducks, with a two
year time-out in the armed forces.
This record makes the 23
year-old Anderson the squads’
senior athlete in point of long
and faithful service.
He won three letters at the end
position, but was switched to
tackle this spring in a move cal
culated to add balance to the Ore
gon line. He has adjusted well to
his new job, using his 206 pounds
in effective manner on both of
fense and defense.
“The tackle spot is easier, but
bruising like any other place on
a football team,” Bob said.
He is a tall, blonde nordic type,
with a disarming smile and an
easy going manner.
Bob hails from the uniquely
named city of Scappoose, Oregon,
which is near the Columbia River
about 20 miles below Portland.
“It's a great place to live,” he
declared. One reason he gave was
the fine salmon fishing there
abouts; and what red-blooded
American male wouldn’t under
Bob has been and still is a very
versatile athlete. As a senior in
Scappoose High, he brought home
the state discus crown with a toss

Five teams have been eliminat
ed from the WAA volleyball
tournament as of yesterday’s re
University House received its
first loss from ZTA 35 to 30, trail
ing 24 to 21 at the half.
Delta Gamma was eliminated
by Kappa Kappa Gamma 41 to 35,
half time score being 23 to 14 in
favor of the Kappas.
Teams now eliminated are Hend
ricks Hall, Alpha Phi, Susan
Campbell Hall, Delta Gamma, and
of 153 feet. In the service at Port
Hueneme, Calif., he played for
ward on a basketball' team which
won the 11th Naval District
Championship. In addition to his
football service here at Oregon,
Anderson throws the discus for
Bill Bowerman’s track team.
Turning to other topics, we found
that he receives his business ad
ministration degree in June, after
which he has no illusions.
“Uncle Sam has the say,” he
smiled. He has considered a civil
ian career in the coaching profes
sion, as well as the business world.
Here at school, Bob belongs to
Kappa Sigma, and was a Skull
and Dagger member.
He says he likes to play a little
poker on the football plane trips
but was reticent about his luck.
“Ask Earl and Daugherty about
that,” he said.
Bob didn’t make the trip to the
Coliseum Saturday because he has
a dislocated shoulder. He hopes to
be ready for his last football game
on the Hayward turf tomorrow,
and the team can make good use
of his battle-seasoned ability.
Did he think the alumni would
be treated to a Webfoot win?
“It’s all up to the guys and the
student body,” he replied.
