who fumbled on their 25-yard

ball. By rapid formations and
quick plays they plunged through

was fumbled and ' captured by

field never again to visit OAC's
end of the field. Sweek, Wal
ker and Finn were hurled against
the line with such force that Eu
gene was unable to stop them.
Every plunge yielded good gains
for the farmers. Eugene took a
brace and held near the center of
the field; Porterfield punted to
their 10-yard line; they advanced
the bill ten yards and being
unable to make yardage they
punted. The remainder of the
