The intramural athletic family is expecting again. Some say it
will be twins and others see the possibility of triplets. The guess
in this sewing circle is that Intramural Director Paul Washke
and his assistant, Everett Peer}', will be mixing formulas for two
little strangers to the IM setup.
Bowling and track are expected to appear on the program by
either winter or spring term, while the heart beat of boxing is
heard only faintly through the stethoscope.
The pin and cinder sports evidently won’t bother very many
persons for the pair have received very little objection.
Boxing on the Ropes
Boxing is doing little more than hanging on the ropes, although
the blows of the enemy are weakening. The big objection seems
to be the fear that improper training for the bouts will result in
some of the boys attempting to ride the elevator in McArthur
Court. Now we're willing to go along with the idea that it would
be strange to walk along 13th Avenue and suddenly have some
guy square off at you whenever the light changed and the ball i
rang. Imagine what scenes the class bells could create.
^Despite every precaution in the world, injuries can't be re
garded as impossible in boxing. Dean Leighton wouldn't have
the easiest time in the world in explaining a skull fracture or a
concussion to an irate parent. Nevertheless, we believe proper
administration would result in few if any injuries. The dean is
absolutely right in demanding such measures, but we see no rea
son for further objection to boxing if adequate stipulations are
drawn up and followed.
IM Tilt Unlikely
A contest between the champion IM hoop teams of Oregon and
Oregon State has even less chance than boxing of ever coming to
pass. They say that those austere individuals on the State Board
of Higher Education are against intercollegiate athletics receiv
ing any benefits from intramurals. The folks who argue against
staging the game contend that the board would consider such ac
tion as a means of self-support and would reduce the IM budget
Why would the game need to receive any of the gate? Admis
sion would have to be charged if the battle were staged as a pre
liminary to one of the varsity contests, but the proceeds could go
elsewhere.. Tut, tut, though, the board wouldn’t hear of such a
Why in the name of common sense can’t we forget protocol and
the handbook just once in a while when there’s opportunity for
harmless fun? Who wouldn’t rather watch the intramural fray
instead of being bored while the Frosh walloped some badly out
classed prep team?
The issue, while not favored by the brass hats, is not dead.
Dean Leighton has been negotiating with officials at Aggieville,
and a negative reply from them would kill the whole thing. If
they’re interested, the matter will be mulled some more.
Two Good Ones
You may see a pair of good football games this weekend if you
hop in the gondola and paddle over to Hayward Field. The first
<me is the Frosh-OSC Rook battle Friday—the season’s finale
fbr both clubs. The folks over at Corvallis, perhaps after scanning
the results of the Frosh-Pup game, tearfully announce that half a
dozen of their regulars are out with injuries. Let’s wait and see.
The other game worth your time is the Eugene-Oregon City
state high school quarter-final tilt Saturday. We haven’t watched
Oregon City in action this season but we can assure you that Eu
gene really has a ball club. Coached by Hank Nilsen, the Axemen
lolled over all Big-Six League opposition and have only a 20-14
loss to a strong Marshfield eelven against them. Nilsen, by the
way, played for Prink Callison at Oregon in 1935, 1936, and 1937.
A Potent Attack
Nilsen uses a T-formation attack similar to that used by Jim
Aiken and places its direction in the very capable hands of Quar
terback Wally Russell. This attack has moved over 3,354 yards
in 9 games this season, 987 yards by air. The Axemen have limit
ed the opposition’s yardage to 1,611. Getting back to Russell, the
172-pound senior handles the ball well, is a good field general,
and has completed 58 passes in 132 attempts for the air yardage
mentioned and 12 touchdowns..
The team is loaded with about half a dozen backs who evenly
divide a tremendous amount of talent among themselves. Two
fullbacks, Jerry Aiken, who out-smarts ’em, and Dick Crawford,
who runs over ’em, are enough to carry the load for any prep
Lackfield. The halfbacks are the Barber twins, Manning and Mer
ritt, who have more than enough speed for any backfield.
>-Rav Wrigglesworth is the conversion specialist for the ma
chine. The 165-pound tackle has booted 21 in 29 tries this season,
closing with 11 in a row.

Billiard Champion to Give
Two Exhibitions at SU
“Show me a shot I can't make”
will be the theme of Charles C.
Peterson, the world’s trick and
fancy shot billiard champion, at
exhibitions in the Student Union
recreation department on Satur
day and Monday. Time and place
has not been set.
Since 1931 Peterson, under the
sponsorship of the Billiard Con
gress of America, and the Associa
tion of College Unions, has car
ried his billiard “gospel” to Amer
ican colleges, boy's clubs, and
During the war Peterson gave
more exhibitions in camps of the
armed forces than any other en
The seventy-two year old mast
er of the cue has accumulated ap
proximately 550 fancy shots, but
he has declared that they are only
incidental to his purpose. What he
wants to do—and what he has
been doing for the past 25 years—
is to teach beginners that billiards
is an easy game to learn and easy
He maintains that with reason
able attention to simple funda
mentals the individual can play
well within a relatively short
“Dollar Shot” Famous
The “dollar shot” is probably
one of Peterson’s best known ex
amples of trick artistry. Peterson
stands a silver dollar on end be
tween two pieces of billiard chalk*
The pieces of chalk are about one
quarter of an inch apart. Peter
son then strokes the dollar to the
far cushion, from whence it rolls
back right through the two pieces
