took a total of TH.'JflO salmon
fiom Ji'ne 1 to Sept. 'jo.

mere than tiO.000 anglers took

tver, the 1338 figure were col
lected for a shorter period. The
agencies lait year collected data
fiom June 1 through Sept. 7.
Fish per angler remained al
most identical for the twj years.
Chinook salmon taken during
li)5y was less than that tallied
during the 19.r,8 run. Figures dis
closed around 23.400 chinooks
aere taken this year compared
to 27.100 for 1958. Silver salmon
taken by anjjlers showed an in
euase of almost 12.UU0. In 1959,
00. 500 silvi-rs were caught com
pared to 38.100 the previous year.
Steclhcud and pink sahnon ap
peared in the catch but neither
was present in lame numbers.
Trout Limi Reduced
The trout limit bag limit has
been reduced at lieuljh and Warm
Spring reservoirs to the regular
1. mit of 10 fish per day, 20 in
possession. The commission re
stored limits to these two reser
voirs at its monthly meeting, in
The ruling was effective Oct.
Trout limits had been raised at
the two reservoirs to 30 fish per
day, GO in possession, w hen it was
thought the two bodies of water
would be drawn down by irriga
tion. Early fall rains and short
ening of irrigation periods elimi
nated the danger. Water levels
it bo;h reservoirs, open to year
around angling, are adequate to
carry trout through winter

With Peterson on the job, Ore-go-i
h.K lice V the surprise of the
West Coast this season. The Ducks
won their first five gan:es in a
low, knock;ns over the previously
unheaien Air Force 20-3 in the
Last season. Oregon only had a
4-G record although it sported one
of the country's best defensive
marks, allowing on'y 50 points in
10 games. Peterson was a major
fnctor o.i that defense. But the
Webiools were hit hard in the
line by graduation ard were
picked tj go nowhere this year.
A!ic A.i Offensive Spark
Oreso.-i hasn't been o'lite as
tough on e'efc-se this season, but I
Pcteison has. He alsir is an of
fensive spark since his speed
allows him to block well.
'One of the best centers I've
ever coached." says Len Casa
nova, the Oregon mentor who has
been in the business 25 years.
"The kind of a convietitor every
coach loves to have on his squad,"
says Jerry Frei, the Oregon line
Peterson's cridiron storv st.irts
hack in high school when Mar. shin-Id
High was the perennial Ore
go l State champion and Peterson
in All-State center.
So nc wondered about his lack
of ci.'e and whether his 190 pounds
weld be enough i:i college ball.
Bob wasn't lon in dispelling any
dou'its about that.
All-Coast In 1958
It was halfway thrcugh the '57
staroa that Norman Chapman,
Oregon's regular center, was side
lined for the year with an injury.
Peterson moved into the gap .as
a sophon.orc' aid starred there
as some of the Ohio State team
Last seaso'i as a junior, Peter-
sen earned the West Coast
coaches' hod for All-Coast tenter
And this year, although bothered
by an injured foot and a drop in
his we'ght, he has remained the
sparkplug of the thin Oregon line
both on offense and defense.
A lot of tub-thumpers feci tha
Petersen's ability to be at the
right place at the right time and
his competitive spirit rates him
some mention this year when the
All-American ballots are cast.
As Frei puts it, "He's a dandy."
Peterson will be working
against California's line next
Saturday when the Bears come
