CLXVII Oakland, Calif., 'Sunday, Nov. 16, 1947 N& 139 ON . tTHE LEVED By LEE DUNBAR : Tribune Sports Editor Cougars Upset Oregon State: By 1413 Score CORVALLIS, Ore., Nov. 15. (JP) Quarterback Tiz Miller's . accurate passing with a wet ball today carried the Washington Stae Cougars t oan upset 14-13 victory over the Oregon State Beavers before 12,400 Oregon State Homecoming fans. ? His tosses to Halfback Den Paul Probably most sport fans missed the Associated '.Press item from Chicago the other day which announced th$it the Professional Basketball League of America had folded. Or, if they did read it, they soon forgot it. But not the 180 players who were drawing pay checks from the now defunct organization. For many of thejn the bread and butter was taken right out of their mouths when xney were cnuppcu uxj. t wt stroke. It was all perfectly legal, of course, the league exercising the 48-hour release clause written into every contract. A pro athlete must always face the fact that he's got to be better than the other man to hold his job. He has to produce or step down. Apparently this was what happened to Jack Toomey, who starred for College of Pacific last season grid was named on the mythical All Coast team. He turned pro several months ago to accept a fat offer Irom the Chicago Staggs of the National Basketball League, but was released before the season opened and hooked on with the ill starred BLA, which certainly lived up! to its initials. TWO KEEP GOING Two pro leagues the National and the Basketball Association of America are still operating, but only a handful of the dispossessed players can be absorbed. And for every man that is hired, another man will be fired. Toomey has already had his shot with the Staggs. The moral of this piece is to look before you leap. A lot of Pacific Coast kids jumped at the chance to play basketball for money. Some of them, like Jim Pollard, Paul Napolitano, Jack Rocker and Jim Durkee, are sitting pretty with Minneapolis in the Basketball Association of America. THERE'S DIFFERENCE But others, like Toomey, have learned that there is a vast difference between signing a $5000 contract and collecting the cash even though they were ready, willing and able to deliver. Furthermore, unless they can get a job with a pro club, they aTe barred from competition until they regain their amateur status from the AAU. All of them, of course, are young and healthy. In a pinch, they can always go to work. Q AND A DEPARTMENT Henry Walter Wilson, 14991 Placer Drive, San Leandro, goes way baek yonder with this one: "Back in 1904 I saw Cy Young of Boston pitch a perfect game against Philadelphia. Did Rube Waddell pitch for Philadelphia? I'm a bit hazy on that. I have been told there have been five other perfect games pitched in the big leagues. Is that correct?" Rube Waddell was the Philadelphia hurler on May 4, 1904 when Cy Young pitched Boston to a 3-0 win, allowing no runs, no hits and BOt a man reaching first base. Other perfect games were pitched by John Richmond for Worcester, when he beat Cleveland, 1-0 in 1890; by John Ward for Providence over Buffalo, score 5-0 in 1890; by Adrian Joss of Cleveland in 1908; beating Chicago 1-0; by Ernest Shore when he hurled Boston to a 4-0 win over Washington in 1917; by Charles Robertson of Chicago in 1922 when he pitched Chicago to a 2-0 victory over Detroit. U.C. Flattens Montana By 60-14 Tally By EMMONS BYRNE MTTMrVRTAT. RTAnTTTM 'RTP'RVT' I LEY, Calif., Nov. 15. Although the quality of mercy was strained to the breaking point today, California's Golden Bears rolled up- a 60-14 victory over a completely outclassed University of Montana eleven. r Pappy Waldorf, the Cal coach,; tossed every man oh his bench into the fray, but the score continued to mount. Several of the Bears weren't even listed in the program, but they ran the ball like all-Americans. A crowd of 25,000 peered through a lowering fog that at the end of the game almost obscured the field. A wet field and a brief half-time drizzle made the ball as slippery as a greased pig, but that didn't stop Bears from running ud their n? y . I , x f , & j.

AMAZING RECORD Most entertaining part of the game, so far as California partisans were concerned, was the performance of the little known backs who played through most of the second half.

On first down, Roberts passed to Scott, who took the baU on the sideline and outran the Cal secondary to dive across the goal. Preuninger added the extra point, although it was so dark by this time that the crowd had to wait for the announcement over the public address system. The Bears virtually ignored the passing game, attempting oijly five aerials. They completed two of these for 99 yards, while Montana was completing six in 20 attempts for 114 yards. Cal's point total for the year is now 254 which is more than any California team has scored in a complete season since 1922. The last time a Cal team scored 60 points in a game was in 1928 when they beat Nevada, 60-13. TOUCHDOWN PARADE This is how the Bears rang up their touchdowns: First quarter,. t 1 Two minutes 31 seconds. Ted Kenfield found a gaping hole at the Montana left tackle, dashed deep into the secondary, spun out of the encircling arms of Ray Bauer and scampered 41 yards to pay dirt. The Bears had taken possession on their own 45 after a short kick by Malcolm went out of bounds. They moved 55 yards on three plays with one off-side against them. Jim Cul- lom converted. 2 Ten minutes 15 seconds. This time the Bears marched 50 yards in seven plays. Jack Jensen and Ken-field pounded out a first down on the Montana 40. George Fong picked up 10 yards at one carry, and Ken-field and Jensen moved to the 13 on two shots, after which Fong went off right tackle for the touchdown as Rod Franz took out the last Montana man on his feet Collum converted.

Five plays later the Bears had scored again. Lotter and Dal Porto made it first down on the 12. Lotter picked up another two yards, and then Billy Montagne drove six yards and the next carry scored on a cross .buck. Cullom made it 28 to 7. 5 Eleven minutes, 20 seconds. This one was strictly a gift Turner's kickoff hit on the' 15-yard line in front of Frank Kalisch, Grizzly safety man, and bounced over his head.

LAFAYETTE YOUTH STAR The two local young men playing for Oregon Norm Van Brocklin and George Bell of Lafayette were dominant factors in the Web-foot victory. They, along with Jake Leicht, turned in ironman performances as they worked the Oregon backfield more than half the game. The Indians' lone tally came in the first minute of the final period. Oregon had a 14 to 0 lead at half time after scoring in both of the first two quarters, and tallied again five minutes after the Indians in the last period. The last minute of each of the first two quarters proved to be the kiss of death 'for the Indians. Both times, as that last minute started, Oregon's quarterback, Vn Brocklin, tossed passes that connected for touchdowns. It was not the Van Brocklin passes, though, that kept the Indians in a dither. It was the deadly running of Oregon halfbacks Bell and Leicht which ripped the Stanford line for gain after gain. A THRILL BY LEICHT Leicht gave the Indians a thrill on the opening kickoff as he took the ball on his own 15-yard line and dashed straight down the middle of the field. He went to the Oregon 47 before Ken Peck Continued Page 26-A, Col. 3 title race into a tie and UCLA woifld at least figure in j the Rose Bowl balloting as a once-beaten Conference team.
