Sports Editor.
Saturday\s game 'With tlio Uni
versity of Idalio will mark the
nineteenth (gridiron conflict be
tween the Webfoots and Vandals.
Football history between the two
institutions began way back in 1001,
when both elevens battled to a 0 to
0 tie. Since Hint time the Oregon
ians have won 1.1 games, losing two
and tieing for three.
There seems to be something
funny about Oregon’s thirteenth
victory over the Vandals which was
registered in 1022. It was in t*his
year that the Lemon-yellow machine
barely won, 3 to 0. Up to the
thirteenth fracas an Oregon team
ltad never lost a game to the Idaho
•gridstors. After the thirteenth vic
tory, Oregon went into another tie
with the Vamdals, 0 to 0, in lj)23.
The fall of 192-1 saw the Vandals
score their first victory over the
Webfoots. What score was it other
than 13 to 0. This ail brings ns to
the conclusion that the supersti
tions cardinal numeral 13 which
seems to have stopped Oregon string
of victories*, scored Idaho’s first
win, and recorded Oregon’s last win
by a touchdown, 13 to 7, in 1920,
lias been keeping the gods of victory
from smiling on the Webfoots. Will
Saturday’s contest see the breaking
of the jinx 13?
A peculiar feature marked Ore
gon’s third victory over the Van
dals in 1908. October 31, IPOS, saw
an Oregon football team struggle to
a 28 to 21 victory with only the aid
of 10 players. The 'contest was
termed the most sensational football
game ever iseen in the Pacific
Northwest. In 1908 Idaho had a
veteran team; well versed in the
old style of football. Oregon, on
the other hand, had a green team
and was under the tutelage of a new
coach, Bob Forbes, former all
American end from Yale. Idaho
went into the game favorites to win
by a large' score.
The game seesawed back and
forth until the middle of the second
half when Oregon made two touch
downs in quick succession. Bill
Kiltz, one of Oregon’s, new ends,
picked up a fumbled punt and ran
30 yards for a. tojuchdown. Two
minutes later Clark, fullback, inter
cepted a Idaho pass and raced 40
yards for the winning touchdown.
It was just before these two
touchdowns that the 10-man team
comes into importance. Oregon had
used its entire squad of 17 players,
and when Bill Main, left tackle,
roughed the Idaho punter he was
ruled from the game. Oregon had
no one to put in and Idaho would
not permit the re-entering of some
of the substitutes. It was after
this, so the 'story goes, that the fa
mous Oregon spirit flared to its
heights and with 10 men the Web
foots fought to victory.
Bill Hayward, varsity track
coach and former football trainer,
well remembers that hectic struggle.
“it, was a 1 t e r i
Idaho refused to j
allow us to make j
substitutions for;
the second time :
that the Oregon
players got maklj
and won the
game,” said Hay
ward. According
to Bill, a squad of
17 men was con
sidered large be

Prospects For
Cinder Squad
Appear Bright
Coacli Hayward Pleased
With Frosh Outlook
In Oval Squad
Freshman track prospects for the
coming year look very rosy to Coaeli j
Hayward. “This is the first time in !
tein years.” says the track mentor, 1
! “that wo have had '.a really exeep
i tional outlook for the frosh cinder
• path aggregation.” So far there
; has been only a small turnout of the
i yearlings from tlie large list of
those who were prominent in high
school athletics, but a second call
for track aspirants will be given in
: a day or two.
Several preliminary events are on
schedule in order to get the men
injto yhape for ,;the cross-country
[next spring. A series of interclass
relays, ranging from the 440 to the
mile are to be held early in the
spring. Another event of universal
interest will be the inter-fraternity
relays, in which some keen rivalry is
anticipated. This competition will
also be held in the spring.
The indoor track will be warmed
all uvinter by the shoes of the
sprinters, conditioning for spring
meets. Indoor competition of var
ious kinds will be held in order to
keep the athletes in the best pos
sible shape for the stiff opposition
that is expected from other teams
later in the year.
The varsity squad will return
[practically intact, and with two
notable additions, besides much
promising material. Beals, a miler
from last year’s frosh squad, and
Webb Hays, also a distance man
from, the same aggregation, are ex
pected to come through with stellar
performances. Further track pre
dictions cannot be made until the
squads have had time to round into
proper shape.

(By United Press)
Pittsburgh, Pa., Oct. 5—The Cor
sair craft, with diminutive I)onie
Basil at the helm, is being carried
into the 1027 World Series on the
crest of a wave of confidence.
The New York Yankees lament
the possible loss of Herbie Pennock,
their star southpaw pitcher, and
feel far differently about the
forthcoming fray than they did a
day ago. Ray Kremer, stocky 200
pounder, Pittsburgh, will have to be
depended upon for victory, in the
all-important opening game. He is
fit and ready to start battling
Yankee batsmep about one thirty
Wednesday afternoon.
Odds 10-9 for Yanks
The furtive-eyed gentlemen who
fix the official betting odds in the
corridors of the old Fort Pitt hotel
will lay you no better than nine to
10 against the chances of the Pi
rates in this first contest. And
baseball experts from far and near
are agreed that in this instance the
club which wins the opening game
will win the World’s championship
of 1927.
The Pittsburgh Pirates, save for
a couple of weak spots, can be es
timated honestly as a great ball
club. •

Yanks acquired in their runaway

In the matter of catchers, Pitts

In the outfield, providing Babe

Hall Delivers
Two Addresses
At Tillamook
Belter Government Is One
Of Important Phases
Of Education
Tillamook, Ore., Oct. 4.— (Special)
—“The fundamental problem of
constructive patriotism in America
today is to establish new) inlets to
the basie social instincts of jhhe
voter, so that his response to prob
lems of peace will be' us effective
and virile as his response to war,”
declared Dr. Arnold Bennett Hall,
president of the University of Ore
gon, who delivered two addresses
before the Teachers’ Institute of
Tillamook county today.
In the interests of better govern
ment, which Dr. Hall holds to be
one of the most important phases of
education, boys and girls should be
made familiar with the workings of
legislative and laiw enforcement
bodies. Those subjects should be
made interesting and human to the
yoluth, so that interest and ambi
tion may be aroused.
Dr. Hall touched on psychology in
his talks, pointing out that “school
spirit” could be used effectively in
developing a better Americanism,
and stressing the fact that instincts
of people play a large part in their
attitude and behavior.
A plea for teaching of such sub
ject's of history on an intellectual
basis, rather than on a fancy scale
in which glamour plays a 'largo
part, was miade by Dr. Hall. The,
work that George Washington did
during his life can be made far
more interesting to the student than
the mere assertion that “ Washing
ton never told a lie,” it was stated.
Children should be taught to honor
and admire national heroes, but this
'admiration should be wholesome,
ju'st and honest.
President Hall will return to the
campius today.

Webfoot Authorized
Wobfoot was authorized to bo
published at the University of Ore
gon in the spring of 192(1, after a
thorough investigation rvas made
into whether or not a magazine of
this sort was wanted om the campus.
It was shown that it would fill a
place in the University publications
by giving students a chance to have
their feature and creative writing
aind art work published.
The first issue was published at
homecoming time last fall, and was
followed by fivo more during the
school year, two each term. The
magazine drew much favorable com
ment from persons on the camjVns
and other publications throughout
the country. Although itn its first
year, it was said to bo as good as
many of the older eastern publica
Material Re-printed
By having material re-printed all
aver the country, the Webfoot
brought much publicity to the Uni

Schoeni, Paul Luy, Joe Sweyd and
Mary K. Johnston.
Paul Luy, senior in journalism,

Last Saturday the pair were play

After the dance, Reynolds tried
to get the cover .for his drums but

To strengthen his argument, the

You arc required to swim four
lengths of the tank on your stomach

minutes and 25 seconds, which is
pretty good time, particularly after
performing all tlio other events
