Last in Passing
Although California rates last in
the PCC in passing offense, its run
ning game is sufficient to place the
£fears second to Washington in to
tal offense. Washington, through
the passing of Don Heinrich and
the running of Hugh McElhenny,
Was averaged 387.4 yards from run
Mng and passing in eight contests.
California in second spot has a 345.9

compared to 157.4 for Stanford.
Olszewski, California’s sopho
more fullback, has replaced Wash

leading back.
Olszewski overhauled Hurryin’
Hugh by rambling for 144 yards
against UCLA last week, while Mc
jfclhenny netted 5G yards against
Oregon. Olszewski now leads Mc
Elhenney, 778 yards to 725, with
two games remaining for each.
Three Marks Set
Three full season PCC records
were established last week, and one
improved upon, by Don Heinrich of
Washington and Bill McColl of
Heinrich boosted his total of
completed passes to 102, for eclip
sing the record of 87 set last season
fiy Jim Powers of USC. He also set
fi new pass yardage mark of 1372
jrtards. Powers also set that mark of
1215 yards in 1949.
McColl broke the PCC records
for number of pass receptions and
yards gained from receiving. He
now has 34 for 623 yards. The pre
vious record of 31 catches was set
jointly last season by Darrell Rob
inson of Oregon and Ray Bauer of
Montana. Bob Wilkinson establish
ed the yardage record of 556 yards
in 1949.
DANE GRAVES, left halfback,

Webfoots Minus Pads
In Final Drill Today
Oregon’s Webfoots will run
through a final workout without
fvads this afternoon in preparation
for Saturday’s game with Univer
v*ty of Colorado at Boulder, Colo.
^Phe team is scheduled to leave Eu
gene by air Friday morning for
JOenver where they will board a bus
for Boulder.
Rain drove the Ducks inside un
<?er the ROTC shed for yesterday's
fight workout. Coach Jim Aiken ran
the team through both offensive
;Md defensive drills without any
contact work.
Another Change
Another switch in the Oregon
iMekfield appeared set yesterday as
Chuck Missfeldt returned to the
fallback post, where he is expected
to start against the Buffs. Miss
feldt saw a lot of action early in
the season, but was used sparingly
rafter that until last week’s Wash
ington game.
Against the Huskies, Missfeldt
was inserted at defensive end where
he performed well enough to earn
plaudits from Aiken. He was a de
fensive end last season until suffer
ing a broken jaw.
Three Remain
Otherwise, the offensive back
field will be the same as that which
started against Washington. Earl
Stelle and Tommy Edwards are ex
pected to draw the halfback assign
ments, with Hal Dunham opening
at quarterback. Oregon is expected
to depend heavily upon Dunham’s
aerials in an attempt to break the
string of five straight losses which
has built up since the win over Mon
This year's meeting will be the
second between the two schools.
Oregon won the first game, played
Iasi year on Hayward Field, 42-14.

Additions of bowling and track
are expected to appear on the in
tramural program by winter or
spring term, while the fate of box
ng awaits further preparation and
study. These tentative conclusions
were the result of an informal meet
ing called earlier this week by Dean
Ralph Leighton of the School of
Health and Physical Education.
Meeting with Leighton were rep
resentatives of the Inter-Fraternity
Council, Inter-Dorm Council, and
CM administration staff.
The three sports received a favor
able vote at a meeting Of IM orga
nization managers some time ago
but must obtain approval from
Leighton before being added to the
Winter Suggested
It was suggested that the two
sports be started winter term but
LM Director Paul Washke pointed
nut the danger to participating or
ganizations of overcrowding any
one term. The organizations, he
acutioned, would run into the trou
ble of needing their athletes in two
places at once whenever the sche
dule called for a group’s appear
ance in two sports at the same hour.
Bowling in winter and track in
spring were suggested and deemed
the best bet. Washke told the group
that this arrangement also could
develop into a problem, for the man
who is expected to direct track, Bill
Bowerman, will be busy with his
varsity cindermen during spring
term. These and other minor ad
justment troubles, he added, should
be settled without much difficulty.
As for boxing, Leighton asked
the supporters of the sport to work
out a detailed set of rules and pro
visions for him to study. He indi
cated approval of adding this third
activity to the schedule but de
manded that satisfactory safety
measures be provided and observ
ed. His past experience with such a
program, Leighton said, has been
marked by the unwillingness of
participants to train.
Hoop Contest Unlikely
The possibility of a contest be
tween the intramural basketball
champions of Oregon and Oregon
State appears to be the most re
mote of those proposed.
Leighton objected to this propo
sition on grounds that the State
Board of Higher Education frowns
on any connection between intrsiS
mural and intercollegiate competi
tion. The state is financing the in
tramural program, the dean ex
plained, and could be expected to
slash an already tight budget if ad
mission receipts to such contests
were considered as means of self

on this proposal would wait word
from Corvallis as to whether or not
