McEwan gave the Associated
Press the following statement:
"With deep regret it has be
come necessary for x- to an
nounce that upon the expiration
of my present contract as football
cbach at the University of Ore
gon my services will be complet
ed." , . McEwan declined to enlarge up
on the statement or to discuss.
his reasons for the unexpected ac

ported that McEwan desired to
sign a new contract immediately,

There are only two games left on

next Tuesday night, when a big

Two of the classes in the univer

to the extent of practically half
of their round trip fare; the other
classes are equally patriotic but

that the necessary amount can be

on the tags Is "Whale Whitman."
SOUTH BEND, Ind., Nov. 21.
(AP) The leg infection which
has kept Knute Rockne, famous
Notre Dame football coach in a
wheel chair for eight weeks, has
spread to both limbs, but his con
dition is not regarded as alarm
ing, Dr. Robert L. Sensennich, the
attending physician said tonight.
Rockne is suffering from a

' Let's see, folks, we haven't an
nounced our guessing average for
several days. Monday for the
first time we battled Old Man
Luck to a draw, on the Eugene
Corvallis game. Wednesday night
we held the right end on the
fights, for the first time in
months, and we won four of six
Sunday, which boosts the guessing
average up to .643; 36 right and
20 wrong.
So today we'll pick Whitman
to beat Pacific and Woodbnrn
to beat Silverton.
A week or so ago we discussed
the high school championship sit
uation and predicted that no mat
ter what the outcome of any
games that could be scheduled,
somebody would still be left un
defeated, and with a valid claim to
the title. Lair Gregory of the Ore
gonian apparently missed that is
sue of The Statesman, for here
the other day he listed Washing
ton high of Portland, Bend, Eu
gene and Milton-Freewater as the
undefeated teams.
Immediately the injured
fans began dropping around
Gregory's. e.ars and what they
said was plenty. The first to re
port was Wbodburn -undefeated

West Linn, 0 to 2, Gresham 1

to 7.
Then came North Bend If you
recall, we mentioned that there
must be an undefeated team In the
Coos Bay region. There will prob
ably be more popping up.
Pat Dundee's showing in de
feating Art Akers was not only
effective. It was pretty to watch.
We have never before seen so
much ring strategy displayed in
a close fight. Chuck Borden
used as much when he defeated
Jack Kentworth here, but
Chuck had everything his own
way. Bring on Mr. Borden for
a fight with Dundee!
There were more "challenges"
in the ring Wednesday night than
we had ever heard at one fight
card before. Winter must be com
ing on. Or maybe the boys had
read that Ralph Gruman was to
be the referee, and saw a chance
to get his attention.
By the way, fight promoting
and officiating must be a pay
ing business, for Gruman owns
at least two pairs of pants. We
know that, because Wednesday
the Romblers' coach may not see
his team in action again this sea
son, for his physician has forbid
den Rockne to go to Evanston,
where Notre Dame meets North
western Saturday and may with
hold permission for Rockne to
make the trip to New York a week
later to see his team meet the
Army eleven. The Army game
ends the Irish schedule.
Dr. Sensennich said Coach
Rockne's condition was not par
ticularly alarming, but bis patient
must have absolute rest. The
physician said the trip to Chicago
last Saturday where Rockne di
rected his team against Southern
California "had fatigued" the
coach considerably.
Some folks take pain for granted.
They let a cold "run its course.'
They wait for their headaches to "wear off.?
If suffering from neuralgia or from neuritis,
they rely on feeling better in the nwnung.
Meantime, they suffer unnecessary pmT

Jack Kentworth of Portland
knocked out Jack Nash of Lonx
view In the seventh round of a
ten round main event on the fight
card here Tuesday night. Kent-
worth weighed 142 pounds anil
Nash 138.
It was a bloody fight, Nash
dropping Kentworth to the can
vas twice in the first round and
Kentworth returning the compli
ment in the third. In the fifth.
Nash was on the floor four times
and at the end of the round, the-
referee, Bill Woods, awarded the
fight to Kentworth, but the
judges, Clifford Brink and Jimmy
Hones, protested. So the boys
went back into the ring, but
Kentworth was too strong for
Nash and bad him in a horizontal
position most of the time in the
sixth and seventh rounds.
It was by far the hardest fight
ever witnessed in the ring here.
