The Graduate Coach.
Now that the graduate coach sy
stem is being considered as one of the
solutions for stimulating Oregon’s
subnormal football stock, it seems
timely to enter into the consideration
of the scheme as it would apply here.
Oregon has in her football alumni a
number of men whose playing ability
is recognized beyond (law or criticism,
and who undoubtedly rank well with
the great Eastern stars. But in con
sidering one of these ex-Oregon stars
for the vital position of head coach,
there arises the probabilities whether
the brightest star would prove equally
as brilliant a coach; whether the best
man could be secured; how long he
could be induced to hold down the po
sition; the manner in which the dif
ferent student interests would accept
his leadership; and how the players
would submit to the arbitrary dis
cipline which a good coach must em
ploy in practice before and during the
In all probability the best man
could not be induced to take the posi
tion, one or two years would be the
limit of a graduate’s stay, and when a
successor was called into harness, his
system of coaching would differ as
markedly from his predecessor as do
the systems of two Eastern men from
What Oregon must have is a real
coach, a professional with no other
interests to call him away from a long
contract, if he proves to be the right
man. A man tried and not found

UTAH, ASPIRING, GALLS
DOWN U. OF W. SPLEEN
By Comparative Scores, Utah Dopes
Out Championship, a la
Because the University of Utah
rolled up a larger score against the
University of Idaho eleven on Thanks
giving day than did the University of
Washington, in their previous battle
with the gem staters, the former in
stitution comes out with a claim for
the coast championship in football.
On October 28, the University of
Washington eleven trimmed Idaho by
a 17 to 0 score in easy fashion. In
the Utah-Idaho Thanksgiving fest at
Salt Lake, the Mormons took the long
end of a 19 to 9 score. Now the basis
on which Utah claims the coast cham
pionship is in the fact that her team
scored just two more points on the
Idaho eleven than did Coach Dobie’s
aggregation, evidently not taking into
consideration the nine points which
the panhandlers managed to get.
The Washington Daily in comment
ing on the situation states:
“Comparative scores never get the
dopester of football anywhere, but
even judging from the scores the team
from Utah had no license to a higher
niche than Dobie’s veterans. Utah
claims the Pacific Coast champion
ship. Utah has become suddenly very
funny in the eyes of the other North
west colleges, but even funnier would
Utah look if its team of huskies real
ly connected with the Washington
Of course, Idaho isn’t on the Pa
cific Coast. Neither is Utah. But
these two teams played for the cham
pionship of the Coast. Now let
Washington beat the University of
Maine, and claim the championship of
