FOR BATTLE ROYAL;
(Continued from Fjage 1.)
Will do anything for “Stub’ Allison, sim
ply because it is “Stub" Allison.
It is that same spirit which is urging
numbers of the Washington rooters to
come to Eugene to back their team, for
they are coming by every means of con
veyance, from baby cart to twin-six, to
see a real scrap.
Washington will have but five veter
ans in the line-up today,—Captain Ted
Faulk, Ray Eckman. Erve Dailey. Bob
Abel and Larry Smith. The other six
men are green an inexperienced, but
they learned to spell fight in the gram
mar. grades and they have been doing it
It is likely that Captain Ted Faulk
will play left end. Faulk was cut out
for two weeks this season, being taken
'sick just before the game against Mon
tana, He played against Stanford for
Jthe first time last week and should he
in good trim today. He has been all
Pacific-Coast end for two years.
"Zeke" Clark will play left tackle. We
call him “Big Zeke” at Washington. He
stoops to enter the dining room, and
would rather open holes in an oppos
ing'line on off-tackle plays, than bury a
slab of T-bone. He stopped seven plays
directed toward him by O. A. C. without
the gain pf one yard by the Beavers.
„ Larry Smith, Washington’s center, is
a rear veteran. He is a living picture
of the statue called, “Fighting Pose.”
JLarry’s best work is on defense, and he
has tanglefoot fingers when it comes to
blocking forward passes. ^
“Heavy” Glen or Grs Pone arc the
two who vs ill probably play and alternate
at right guard. Glen’s daddy is Wash
ington’s dean of music and “Heavy" in
herits all of his Dad's playing forio.
Gns Pope is the Ame d.u.i discus chain
riion. Gus got knocked on the chin r,.v

start against the Northerners. In the
line, “Scotty” Strachan will fill the
position left open by the injuries of Ed
Ward, regular left guard. JMorfitt and
-Brown will probably alternate at right
end, with Brown working in. the wing
position at the start off.
Steers Strong Factor.
. Drive and fight have been developed in
the Oregon eleven since the Stanford
fame, and Washington will meet a much
different team than the one met by the
Cardinals in the south. “Bill” Steers is
expected to perform in his old time style
<oday. Steers is a fighter from the
^ump, and this is the first game in which
he has really been in condition. In the
Idaho and Stanford games, “Bill” had
only a bare week in which to condition
himself, lie has taken advantage of the
two weeks interval between the Stan
ford and Washington games to got into
shape, and is in the best of physical trim
for the contest, llis open field running
and punting will he a feature of the game
this afternoon. Washington is familiar
with Steers’ playing ability, for it was
'“Bill” Steers who was the strong fac
tor in the Washington defeat last year.
King, Chapman and Mead have been
working well in practice for the past
two weeks. King can always he counted
on for the proper amount of punch
through the line. Mead and Chapman
are fast and shifty and will outdistance
the Washington defense if they ever get
away. Mead performed like a veteran
in the game against Idaho the first of
the season, while “Nish” Chapman han
dled a backfield berth on last year’s var
sity in big league style.
Battle Between Lines.
The big battle of the day will be be
tween the two lines, their weight aver
age is the same, their fighting ability is
not under-estimated by either opponent.
Washington’s line held like a stone wall
against the plunges of the O. A. C. and
Stanford backs while Stanford and Idaho
were equally unsuccessful in piercing the
Oregon forward defense. Oregon’s buck
field may outweigh the Suudodgers backs
about 10 pounds, which throws a little
favor on the side of the lemon-yellow,
and with an average equal in the Hue the
impetus added by the heavier backs may
tear up the Washington defense.
“Brick” Leslie, who it is certain will
play, although he bus been out. of prac
tice a part of the week on account of
illueps, will he opposed by Smith of the
Sundodgers; both men are two year let
ter men, and although outweighed by
Smith a good ten pounds, Leslie has so
far the advantage iu defensive playiug.
“Ilriek” is not only a tower of defense
in the center of Oregon’.-, line, but he
is fast and ha.-- a faculty of getting down
op a punt about as fust as any man ou
'the Oregon line. “Brick” tips the scales
At TOO pounds, the lightest man on the
Oregon line, while Smith weighs 17<>.
Weight Nearly Even.
“Spike” Leslie of Oregon and Ingram
of Washington each weigh 18(1 pounds,
there will ho no advantage in weight in
the battle between these two. “Tiny”
Shields hus a weight advantage of !
pounds over his opponent, Clark. “Tiny"
weighs 190 pounds, Clark weighs IS,!.
Pope of. the Sundodgcrs who handles the
right guard position will outweigh
Stracban, who will oppose him, by one
pound, while Mautz has an advantage of
5 pounds over Bryan, who plays the op
posite position on the visitors eleven.
Pope weighs 187, Stvftehan ISO, Mautz
180 and Bryan 184 pounds.
Tie Game May Result.
There is a difference of .'5 pound:; in
the weight of “Bud” Brown at right end
for Oregon and Dailey. left end for the
invaders. Brown’s weight is 170 pounds,
Dailey weighs 170. “Mart’’ Howard, at
left end will be outweighed by Rogge,
2 pounds. “Mart” weighs 166 and
Rogge 168. The lines of both teams are
well balanced and a pretty battle will de
velop between these two veritable moun
tains of strength.
Providing the rain continues this af
ternoon, it is not probable that either
team will be able to reset to an open
style of play, the heavier weight of the
I Oregon backs may then give them an ad
vantage in pounding the Siindodgers’
line. It is not that a tic
game may result fee 11 the I'lttie mi May'
ward field, it appears fro in e,.impera
tive strength estimates that ij>c 1-naks
will decide the winner.
Facilities for taking care of the crowd
have all been properly arranged for, ac
cording to Graduate Manager Marion
McClain. The officials will be George
Varnell. University of Chicago, referee;
Plowdeu Stott, Stanford University, ins
pire; “Heck” Dorman, University of
Washington, head linesman.
