    Frosh Surprise Pups
But Lose to Visitors
In Last Period 26-21
By Phil Johnson
' The hard-fighting University of Oregon Frosh confounded pig
skin experts Saturday afternoon as they narrowly missed an up
set victory over the Washington Pups, who were forced to come
(from behind twice in order to salvage a 26-21 triumph over the
'Ducklings on Hayward Held.
A last-period quarterback sneak
j>y Dean Rockey preserved Wash
ington’s second straight undefeat
ed, untied season and provided the
•13th consecutive win for Coach
'Johnny Cherberg’s Pups. It was
Oregon's second loss in three starts.
Pups Score First
The Washingtonians drove 73
yards in 14 plays to score the first
touchdown of the game. Halfback
'Kick Imer smashed through right
tnckle and raced 14 yards for the
score, which came with six min
utes remaining in the openihg stgri
za. Sub Halfback Bob Siegel boot
ed the extra point.
Duckling Left Half Jack Mor
ris set the stage for a retaliatory
tally when he returned a Wash
ington punt from the Pup 45 to
the 33. Right Half Cece Hodges
pulled in an 18-yard aerial from
Quarterback Harney Holland and
dashed an additional 14 yards to
(he one-yard line, where he was
pushed out of bounds.
Hodges circled left end to score
on the following play, and Fullback
Howard Hostetler kicked the con
version point to deadlock the count
at 7-7.
The Ducklings kicked off and re
gained pigskin possession two plays
later. Hodges intercepted an enemy
toss on the Pup 28 and scored his
second touchdown nine plays later
when he caught another Holland
aerial for a gain of nineteen yards
and six points. Hostetler again con
verted, anu tuauu om uuncimano
Yearlings led 14-7.
The Northerners scored six plays
later and Siegel converted to tie the
score. The Washington drive cover
ed 64 yards with Halfback Jack Na

counting for most of the distance.
Imer crashed through the line to
add the final yard and the touch
Naon Counters
Imer raced 37 yards to the Ore
gon 40 later in the second quarter
to set the spark for the next Wash
ington touchdown explosion. A
Rockey to Naon pass provided a
first down on the Frosh 28, and
Naon skirted left end three plays
later from the five to score the
Northerners’ third touchdown. The
inspired Ducklings blocked Siegel’s
conversion kick.
Oregon regained the load in the
third quarter when Morris zig
zagged 19 yards to the Pup ten,
Hostetler smashed to the three,
and Morris passed to Right End
l*at O’Brien for the touchdown.
Hostetler’s conversion supplied a
21-20 Duckling margin.
The deseprate Pups drove 73
yards in 13 plays midway in the fi

Urban Back
To Practice
After Injury
Backboard strength of the Web
foot hoop squad is expected to re
ceive a considerable boost this week
when Forward Will Urban returns
for regular duty.
A hard worker on the boards for
Oregon the past two seasons, he has
missed practice while recovering
from a broken foot.
Urban appeared at practices this
past week but his action was limit
ed to conditioning exercises and
light workouts. He expects to work
in the regular scrimmage sessions
this week as the Webfoots prepare
for their 1950 opener December 1
against Utah at Salt Lake City.
Adds to List
His return adds another name to
the list of good tall men from which
Coach John Warren must pick a
working unit. Mel Streeter and Jim
Loscutoff have been doing a lot of
work at the forward spots but Jim
Vranizan, Don Hoy, and Curt Bar
clay are rated by Warren as very
much in the fight. Bob Peterson had
topped the bids for a forward berth
until temporarily sidelined last
week by a sprained ankle.
Chet Noe and Hank Bonnemann
have been alternating at center.
The latter has shown more im
provement lately than has any
other member of the squad, accord
ing to Warren.
Guards In Units
Four men are leading the guard
candidates at the start of the week.
Jack Keller and Ken Hunt form one
unit, while Mel Krause and John
Neeley are paired in the other com
bination. Art Shepherd is recover
ing from an ankle injury.
Frosh Coach Don Kirsch has par
ed his Duckling squad to 30 men
and these will continue to scrim
mage against the varsity quintet.

Oregon Improved
But Huskies Win
Washington’s Huskies rolled to another victory Saturday, just
as everyone had expected, but in the process suffered a few anxi
ous moments provided by a fired-up Oregon eleven which gave
its best performance of the season before bowing 27-12.
The Huskies were fighting to
stay in the running for a Rose Bowl
bid, but still were unable to subdue
the Webfoots until the third quar
ter. Even then the 20-point under
dogs refused to stay down, coming
back for a touchdown with just ov
er a minute to play.
Trouble Starts Early
Stung into action by an early Ore
gon threat, Washington moved 75
yards for the game’s first score late
in the first period. Roland Kirkby, a
Husky standout throughout the
game, intercepted one of Hal Dun
ham’s passes in his end zone and
ran it out to the 25 to start the
march. Fourteen plays later Quar
terback Don Heinrich passed from
the Oregon 17 to Bill Earley on
the 6. Earley went in and Jim Ros
enzweig converted to make the
score 7-0.
The Ducks bounced back'with
two unsuccessful scoring bids be
fore cracking pay dirt with a min
ute left in the half. Earl Stelle,
shifted to right half, scored from
the 4 to cap a 38 yard drive. End
Boh Anderson started it with an
interception on his 25, running
hack to the 48. A penalty put the
hall on the 38, and two Dunham
passes covered 23 yards to set up
the touchdown. Chet Daniels’
conversion try was blocked, leav
ing the halftime score 7-6.
Heinrich, Kirkby, and Hurryin’
Hugh McElhenny combined their
talents for two third quarter
scores which iced the game. Both
came on breaks which were neatly
turned into scores.
Huskies AUU 10 L,eau
The first came after the pesky
Kirkby intercepted on the 50. It
took 14 plays again, Kirkby going
over from the one. The next Husky
tally came just five plays after the
ensuing kickoff. Bob Carey fum
bled on the second play on his 29,
Ernie Stein recovering for Wash
ington. Kirkby again scored, this
time from the 15.
The Huskies scored their last
touchdown on a 71 yard march in
the fourth period. A Heinrich to Phil
Gillis pass covered 37 of the yards,
and Dick Sprague tallied from the
Oregon was still in the game,
though, and went 63 yards after
a roughing-the-kicker penalty

drive, passing 19 to Hal Cuffel
and 27 to Jake Williams after a
5 yard penalty to put the leather
on the Husky 22. From there he

The Webfoots go back to work
this week to prepare for Saturday’s
game against Colorado at Boulder.
After that only Oregon State is left
on this year’s slate.
