Emerald Sports Write; .
Jim Aiken told us the other night that the Ducks were taking
along oxygen equipment to Boulder so that the players could get
a taste of something closer to the sea level atmosphere they’re
used to than the thinned out varsity peculiar to the Rockies.
While not arguing the pros or cons of oxygen machines, we were
again convinced that the athletic department is leaving no stone
unturned in its effort to bring home a winner.
Incidentally, lest someone get the wrong idea, the Ducks will
not be roaming the Boulder gridiron with special breathing ap
paratus strapped to their backs and oxygen masks to their faces.
They will get their recuperative shots only upon their temporary
retirements from the field of play. In this same vein, we were
wondering what the Colorado team takes along when it ventures
from its mountain home to do battle with an opponent located
down near sea level. Hydrogen machines, maybe?
Adding Machine Team
Looking over Colorado's record for the season, it’s clear that
all. parts of the Webfoot machine will have to be functioning
smoothly if the Ducks are to outscore the Boulder Buffaloes.
While their won-lost mark isn’t imposing (three wins, four loss
es, and one tie), the Buffs haven't been held to less than three
touchdowns since Iowa State allowed them only one in the open
er. Since that slow start they have been averaging 24 points per
outing. They racked up 18 against the country’s number three
team, Oklahoma, the second best mark posted against the Soon
ers this year. The only drawback to all this is that the Buffs are
a mite generous in their treatment of the opposition, which has
averaged 20 points a game.
Oregon billiard and pool enthusiasts will get a treat tomorrow
and Monday when Charlie Peterson puts in an appearance at
the Student Union. At 72, an age when most cue coddlers are
content to attempt nothing more difficult than a bank shot into
the corner spitoon, Pete is still recognized as the world’s trick
shot billiard champion. Not only that, but he’s touring the coun
try giving exhibitions in colleges and universities.
Peterson (not to be confused with the Emerald sports writer
of the same name) probably did more than any other person to
revive pool and billards on a respectable basis after the games
had fallen into disrepute during the depression. His idea was to
place tables in recreation rooms of schools, colleges, and boys
clubs. How well he succeeded is witnessed by the fact that today
virtually no student union building exists without its comple
ment of tables. Pete also organized the collegiate billiard asso
ciation which had 12,000 students competing in its recent cham
pionships. An expert with the cue for 58 years, Peterson gave
more exhibitions in armed forces camps during the war than any
Here We Go Again
Now we get around, as we always do on Fridays, to doing a
bit of prognosticating. Last week’s mark was somewhere in the
neighborhood of 23 right, eight wrong, and a tie, but don’t shoot
umf that’s off a point.
Oregon vs. Colorado—we’ll cross our fingers, clutch our rab
bit’s foot tightly and say Oregon, for two reasons. The Ducks
look more like a ball club every time out and are due for a break.
Secondly, they should handle the slower, up the middle, Buff
backs better than the speedy outside runners of, say, Washing
Oregon Frosh vs. Oregon-State rrosh—the Kooks are one up
on the Ducklings this season, but we look for Bill Bowerman’s
boys to even the score this afternoon. They looked great against
the strong Washington Pups, but may be slowed down unless
the rains stop.
Oregon State vs. Washington State—the Beavers finally be
gan to roll a week ago, but will find the road rougher this time.
Anyway, we'll saw OSC in one that could go either way.
Stanford vs. Army—about all the Indians can hope for is mer,
ciful treatment at the hands of the Cadets. A moral victory in this
one would be anything less than a four touchdown drubbing.
Washington vs. USC—the Trojans are poison to the Huskies
in Los Angeles, but the Fearsome Foursome should provide the
antidote this year. Our vote goes to Washington, but it could be
Elsewhere in the West, California should have little trouble
with USF as the Bears prepare for Stanford a week hence ; Santa
Ctara gets the nod over St. Marys in the Little Big Game; Pacific
rates over the Willamette here in Oregon, and Boston U. is our
choice over Idaho in a game to be played in the East.
