Head Football Coach Len Casa

the scene this morning to take
charge of the University of Ore

its third day.

him to postpone his return from

and ex-Duck Center Brad Ecklund

Harlow described the attitude as
good. “We’ve had to make quite
a few changes, but everyone wants
to play. They’ve shown a lot of
pepper for this time of the year,”
Results in Tuesday’s mixed
doubles bowling were as follows:
League no. 1:
Wada and Takasumi 4, Gillmore
and Lally 0. Leslie and Woodruff

and Barber 4, Phillips and Spring

Hablett and Husted 4, Fitzgerald
and Jones 0. Hagedorn and Gand

Hallows mention of changes was
in reference to the wholesale
movement of ends to tackle and
guard positions. The Ducks have
had a surplus of flankers and an
obvious scarcity of experienced
tackles, guards and centers.
Quarterbacks Hal Dunham, Bar
ney Holland and Wally Russell
were pressed into passing roles
Tuesday afternoon; McKay and
Roche drilled the backs on short,
flat tosses. Harlow worked with
the remainder of the squad, the
linesmen, who number around the
40 mark. They stressed blocking
and tackling, mostly in dummy
