Lineup With Many
First Rook Clash Slated for
Friday, October 24
With the first of the annual
“big-little” grid contests with the
Oregon State College Rooks set
for next Saturday, October 24, at
Corvallis, the Oregon freshman
eleven, under the leadership of
Coach Prink Callison, has been
practicing every afternoon until
darkness prevents the players
from seeing the ball, and is per
fecting a strong attack fer its
Last year’s encounters with the
Rooks ended in a win for each
team. The first game, played at
Medford, ended in a close victory
for the Rooks. Despite a poor
first half in the second clash at
Corvallis, the yearlings rallied in
the last period to win, 31 to 19.
Coach Callison refused to com
pare his 1930 eleven with that of
last year, stating that it was too
early to make any comparison.
The only optimistic remark he
made was that he was more than
well supplied with ball carriers.
Ex-prep school stars from all
over the country have turned out,
giving the coach a chance to pick
a strong quartet. Some of the
outstanding candidates are: Joe
Lillard, a speedy half from Min
neapolis, Minnesota; Ray Kelly,
an all-star from Tacoma; Fred
Kennedy, a plunging 220-pound ^
fullback from Sand Point, Idaho;
Howard Bobbitt, an ex-Commerce
high star from Portland; Romey
DePittard, a sprinter from Mc
Minnville; and Mark Temple, a
promising half from Pendleton.
None of the line positions has
been filled definitely yet. Numer
ous changes have been made dur
ing workouts in an effort to de
termine the strongest possible for
Every position has been hotly
contested for and most likely the
starting line for the Rook encoun
ter will not be announced until
just before the game.
They Lead Co-ed Singing Section
1 ' .—TOs-mi.tijjgaw! ■ . .. •••••••• -
A new feature of Oregon cheer leading will be the presence of three prominent University girls
in front of the special co-ed singing section. While the men’s stands reverberate to the commands of
Yell King Johnny Creech and his assistants, the co-ed group will reply under the direction of these 1
attractive leaders. From left to right, the girls are: Marguerite Tarbell, Marjorie Clark, and Maxine
Candidates lor wing berths who
have attracted the attention of the
coaches are: Mike Mikulak, Min
neapolis, Minnesota; Alton Hakan
son, another Sand Point, Idaho,
boy; and Roland Larson, from
Ordway Fritz, a Eugene high
star, and Ed McLellan, Burling
ame, California, have been fight
ing it out for the center berth.
A large number of promising
guards have made it exceedingly
hard for Callison to pick the
strongest. Jack /Meier, Portland;
Trent Meredith, Sacramento, Cali
fornia; A1 McLelligon, Portland;
and Bob Fury have all been placed
at first string guard during prac
tice. At present, however, Fury
is in the University infirmary.
Two interesting players are
among the hopefuls for tackle po
sitions. Lyle McCallum, a star
for Franklin high in Portland
seven years ago, and Roy Morgan,
who hails from Louisiana, are try
ing hard to land the first string
jobs. They are closely pressed by
Mike Balkovick, Harrisburg, and
Xtllo Classman, from La Porte, In

Coach Callison and his two as
sistants, George Stadelman and
Bemie Hughes, have been hindered
a great deal this year with injured
men. At the first of the season
over half the squad were nursing
sore arms because of the compul
sory vaccination ordered by the
University health service. Now,
one man after another has been
forced out of practice with va
rious minor injuries. With the ex
ception of Ross, a halfback who is
out for the season with a broken
hand, every man is expected to be
on deck for the Rook game at
