Bledsoe, Chvrberg, Buse Oregon 13; Washington On October 10th came Oregon for the Huskies ' first " big " game. The Golden war- riors played good ball, but a few mistakes coupled with a profusion of bad breaks gave Oregon a 13-0 victory. The bad breaks began when an Oregon punt got away from Huf- ford, allowing the Webfeet to penetrate into Husky territory. A trick pass play, Watts to Bailey, put the ball on Washington ' s one- yard line. Joe Lillard, Oregon ' s " Midnight Express, " who was later declared ineligible for college athletics, scored on an off-tackle slash on the next play. Photographs and motion pictures of the play later showed that Watts had come back up to the line of scrimmage before letting go his pass to Bailey, which made the pass illegal. In the fourth period, when Washington had a chance to score, Mr. Bad Luck, in the person of Bill Bowerman, Oregon end, in- tercepted a short pass from Benny Sohn on the Duck 13-yard line and, skilfully eluding tacklers, raced 87 yards to another touch- down. Washington 38; Idaho 7 Sophomore backs, particularly Fay Franklin and Ross Pederson, had a field day when Idaho invaded, October 17, and was repulsed, 38-7. Idaho scored when Sullivan, Vandal right tackle, blocked August Buse ' s Husky Line Proves Invulnerable 105

Nishet, Finn, Palmer on September 26 with the University of Utah, champions of the Rocky Mountain Conference. The Huskies played ragged ball, but mainly due to the individual ef- forts of Merle Hufford, back, Bill Smith, sophomore end, and Dave Nisbet, stellar junior flankman, the Purple and Gold emerged on the heavy end of a 7-6 score. Smith scored in the second quarter after taking a pass from Hufford. Hufford kicked the extra point. After Richins had scored for Utah, Tedesco, brilliant Ute quarterback, dropped back to make the try-for-point. Nis- bet rushed through the line and hurried Tedesco ' s kick, which went wide. Washington 25; Montana Bernard F. " Bunny " Oakes ' Montana Grizzlies hiked over the mountains on Octo- ber 3, thirsty for Husky blood. Bledsoe, Hufford, Wolcott, and Franklin scored touchdowns for Washington, one each quar- ter in the order named. Montana ' s only threat to the Husky goal stripe came in the second period when Phelan ' s second and third-stringers allowed the Grizzlies to pen- etrate deep into Purple and Gold territory. Hufford, Schwegler, and their varsity mates galloped onto the field and averted the danger. After that there were no more such near-disasters, and the game ended as an unimpressive 25-0 victory for Washington. Hufford and Schwegler If ant Thai Ball, too

Lenfesty, Perrish, B. Smith punt, which rolled back over the Husky goal line and was downed by Sullivan. Wilson, Idaho quarter, converted. Washington ; Stanford Against the Stanford team, which came to the stadium one week later, Phelan used only thirteen players, and although the score was 0-0, sport writers credited the Huskies with out-playing the Cardinals from the first whistle. In the absence of Bill Marsh, quar- terback and regular punter who had been injured in the Oregon game, Hufford took over the kicking assignment and stamped himself as one of the triple-threat stars of the Conference. Schwegler ' s fine work in the line first put him on the list of AU-American recommendations. Despite a heavy rain which hampered both squads, this game was regarded as one of the greatest exhibitions of football ever seen in the local stadium. Washington 77; Whitman October 31 was the date of Washington ' s annual " breather " with Whitman College, the staunch little band of gridders from up Walla Walla way who generally win the Northwest Conference title. Although Phe- lan ' s sophomores, sparked by Fay Franklin who is expected to fill Hufford ' s brogans some day, piled up 77 points, the Mission- aries took their toll in injuries. No less than five of Phelan ' s most capable substitutes were put on the hospital squad in that game. Finn and Buse Stop Moffatt
