The initial month of the new half-century expires tonight, and
it has been quite a month in the field of sports.
It opened with the annual bowl games, including California’
annual Rose Bowl loss. Michigan took an unconvincing 14
triumph after a long Cal touchdown run was nullified by the
officials and the Bears lost another six-pointer when one of their
speedy backs slipped and fell on the one-yard line.
Five days later, the South
edged the North 19-18 in the
Senior Bowl after the Norths

ped and fell on the South's ohe

apparently successful fourth
down end zone attempt.--Maybe,

In one of. the more amazing ip,ig
skin battles of the century, the
College All-stars ' defeated the'
Hawaii All Stars, Reinforced 48-45
at Honolulu. The Hawaiian rein
forcements included Sammy Baugh,

Le&n Hart' and Kyle Rote. Sonny
Grandelius of the Collegians scor
ed four touchdowns.
In the Buckeye state, All-Ameri
can Vic Janowicz of Ohio State al

The Buckeyes were still re
covering from the loss of their
football mentor, Wes Fesler, who
resigned to go into “business.”
He signed a coaching contract
with Minnesota six weeks later,
explaining: “You can’t take 19
years of experience and what
not and throw them out the
window.” * What is whatnot?
Oregon also was represented in
the dying gasps of the 1950-51
football season. A PCC statistician
announced that Oregon was penal
ized 43 times during the season
for delaying games. The next worst
offenders had 14 delaying penalties
A more encouraging note was
the report that three Webfoot grid
ders, Ray Lung, Dick Daugherty,
and Earl Stelle, had been “drafted”
by professional pigskin organiza
tions. Lung was one of the out
standing defensive linemen in the
Shrine Bowl tilt, although he was
playing end in that contest instead
of his usual guard position.
Other January gridiron devel
opments included the abandon
ment of football by St. Mary’s
and Duquesne and Oregon’s

Boxing also assumed headline
proportions as Oakland Billy Smith

He added, “I had no battle

Basketball also managed to creep
into the limelight. In a profession
al game, Fort Wayne slowed down

Minneapolis 19-18, while shortly
afterwards, Indianapolis edged
Rochester 75-73 in six overtime

College basketball also took some
odd bounces. Bucknell scored at
the end of the opening 16 minutes
of play to take a substantial 2-0
lead over Penn State, but the Nit
tany Lions staged a brilliant rally,
unleashed a tremendous scoring
barrage, took a 5-3 halftime ad
vantage, and won 25-15.
A Helena, Arkansas, high
school game also was punctuat
ed by few scoring bursts. Elaine
Industrial School crushed Mar
vell 4-3 after a 1-1 halftime
In another notable hoop contest,
Long Island U. captured its 138th
consecutive home court triumph.
They lost one in 1937.
Kentucky demonstrated the ad
vantages of rebound control when
they routed Tulane 104-68 Monday
night. Although the teams had
identical 38 per cent field goal
averages, the Wildcats took more
rebounds and thereby gained more
field goal opportunities. They sank
43 two-pointers while Tulane was
throwing in only 27.
'Meanwhile, basketball betting
scandals were almost as preva
lent as divorces in a movie star’s
life history. Two Iowa hoop art
ists were temporarily barred
from intercollegiate competition
for delivering betting cards.
Athletic Director Paul Brechler
offered this excuse: “The boys
made a bad mistake. They forgot
to think.” In this modern age, that
IS a bad mistake.
On the local basketball scene,
Coach John Warren’s Oregon
Ducks monopolized the headlines
with their brilliant performances
against Idaho and Oregon State,
while the Oregon Frosh took
their 15th triumph in 16 starts.
The Ducks were in the cellar
shortly after January began; at the
beginning of February, they are
tied for first place.
The Atlantic Pact Powers Will Push...
. . .their own rearmament without waiting on the West Germans, Sir
Ivone Kirkpatrick, British high commissioner in Germany, said Tuesday.
This, he said, appears to be the policy of General Dwight D. Eisenhower,
and “this approach is most likely to solve the German problem.”
“Our first duty is to strengthen our own Western defenses,” he said.
Then, he predicted, the Germans will abandon their present fearful re
luctance and commit themselves militarily on the side of the West.
Oregon's Proposed New Civil Defense Agency...

Robinson Acfs as Representative
To National Theater Assembly
Horace W. Robinson, associate
professor of speech and director of
the University Theater, was a
Northwest representative to the
National Theater Assembly early
this month, when the groundwork
for an organization fostering a na
tional theater was laid.
Robinson acted as spokesman for
the seven-man delegation from Ida
ho, Montana, Oregon and Washing
ton. He was also a member of the
steering committee for the assem
bly, which met in New York.
Over 300 representatives of all
regions of the country and some 40
organizations of the theater world
made preliminary plans for a na
Many steps were taken which
may make possible a national the
ater in the future, Robinson said.
He emphasized that all recommen
dations were dependent upon the
end of the present emergency.
If a national theater were ever
realized, Robinson believes the Pa
cific Northwest should be especially
benefitted since this area is now
limited in theatrical development.
Traveling shows, construction of
new theaters, and assistance to
resident theatrical groups are
among possibilities for the future.
A national theater, as presented
by Robinson, would be an organiza
tion which would receive its federal
assistance largely in the form of
loans, rather than as outright sub
