If ever a team had the opportunity to play the role of spoiler
- Oregon State has that chance this Saturday when the Heavers
pre entertained hy Stanford in I’alo Alto. The Indians last
. weekend had to pull one out of the fire against l.'SC, while
the’ Saturday following their tussle with OSC they take or
.their traditional rival, California. If they are going 1° '<-•!
down at all, this Saturday would he the most likely time. A
letdown certainly wouldn't come against Cal.
“ But we don’t think Stanford will let their chances for the
Kose Bowl be obstructed by the Beavers. Chuck Taylor’s men
.could nail down a bowl spot if they beat OSC, and that may be
incentive enough. This would also take some pressure off the
Indians in the Cal game the week following.
Bears Will Get Workout

(•workout for the Bears. I lie be t Oregon can hope for is that
the Bears will throw the ball a bit, possible enabling (leorgc
'Shaw to tie the existing XCAA pass interception record for
a single season.
' Shaw got his eleventh against Boston, we understand, which
leaves him just one off the all-time high. That and the fact
.that Oregon last week was sixth in the country in passing
are the silver linings to the otherwise dark cloud that has been
Oregon football this year. Oh, yes. There is also the two
game winning streak the Ducks are working on here at Hay
ward Field. If their home form runs true next week, Ilome
yoming might produce a good battle.
It All Depends

Stanford' post-game remark concerning CSC: Hardest-hitting
Jmt cleanest team we’ve played all sea-on. Contrast with the
moan and groans out of Seattle and Berkeley after the Tro

a right to gripe, but as we said, a lot depends which side of the
fence you're on.
< And while we're not passing judgment on whether anybody’s
right or wrong, it seems that a few sportswriters around the
State are beating the dead horse when they can't refer to USC
without mentioning the “illegal” touchdown the Trojans
jcored on Oregon State. It was clear at the time and has be
come doubly clear since that the best team won that game.
" New Purity Plan Made
(h er in the purity department, meanwhile, Washington’s
11. I’. "I tick" K\crest, vice-president of XCAA district 8, has
announced a 12-point plan to dc emphasize football. The plan
wiirgn before the XCAA at its winter meeting.
i While the most eye-catching of the program’s points are
found in the first four—elimination of spring practice, limits
on number of games, study of the post-season game problem,
land reconsideration of the free-substitution rule—the rest of
the plan shows some thought to correcting the real abuses of
A For instance, point 6 would, if adopted, dor.athletic eligi
fbility to a student not admitted in accordance with regular ad
*tnissiun requirements. Point 8 would "reduce undesirable re
Icruiting activity." And point 12 would “give close attention to
f-the curriculum of the athlete." Noble ambitions, but only a
I starry-eyed visionary would look for complete adoption of the
■ plan. As a bold step in the right direction, though, it merits the
Japplause of those who believe that football has grown too big

PCC Schools Endorse Plan
u At first glance, it's surprising that the plan was so heartily
| endorsed by members of the I’acilic Coast Conference. Ten of
• the proposals won unanimous consent, while two schools ob
? jecled to points 1 and 4, the spring practice and Irec substitu
j tion planks in the reformers’ platform. It is likely, though, that
*il the matters ever come to a vote in the XC AA, there will be
‘ .more than two PCC schools in favor of retaining the statu
- quo. These things die hard.
When California entertains Oregon this Saturday, it wil
.mark the silver anniversary game of a series dating back tc
1899. In the 24 games played to date, the Bears have a 15-f
£dj?e. But over the last 12 years the Ducks have managed t<

gon’s hoopsters learned the rudi
ments of the zone defense. Up
until yesterday, Coach Borcher's
hoys had been pounding away at
the fast break and the man-for
man offense but then “something
new was added.” The first team
to try the zone cracker consisted
of Bob Peterson, Chet Noe, Mel
Streeter, Ken Hunt and Bud Covey.
At first they naturally seemed
rusty and out of place but as prac
tice wore on they caught on and
were progressing rapidly when the
drill was called to a halt.
After working on this zone of
fense, the Ducks ran through three
on-two and two-on-one offensive \
breaks and half court drills. In
one of these drills Coach Don l
Kirsch provided a potent scoring
punch for his wildcats against a
group of picked opponents. The
contest was a wild and wooly one.
