    The Emerald ♦
By Jack Burke ♦
With another hectic week in the
Pacific Coast conference grid race
on the records but one thing is as
sured and that is the very hearten
ing knowledge that no team from
California will finish the race un
Washington State and Washing
ton can be thanked for this situa
tion. The Cougars because they
took care of the Sons of Troy and
the Huskies because they took
care of the Golden Bears.
On the other hand the Trojans
took the Stanford hosts down the
line in great style. V.'e can imag
ine the chagrin of the Redshirts at
the present moment as they are
smarting under the most complete
rout of recent years and perhaps
the greatest that it has even been
Fop Warner’s misfortune to suffer.
What will happen this week-end
is a matter of great concern to
Oregon. At Portland the Cougars,
who are now in first place with
three wins, meet the Oregon State
team. The latter team hasn't
made an impressive showing but
can be counted upon to give the
Pullman team a good battle. As
far as that goes this is one of two
chances that Oregon has for a
clear title to the Coast race. Wash
ington State has to be taken down
a peg and either the Orange and
Black or the Purple and Gold have
to do it.
Only two other conference
games arc on tap this week-end,
California meeting Montana at
Berkeley and Stanford taking on
U. C. L. A. at Los Angeles in a
flight game. All the other mem
bers of the league with the excep
tion of Oregon meet non-confer
ence opponents, with the Web
foots taking a day off.
Interest in the Saint Mary’s
Oregon “turkey-day” game is
growing with the growing power
of the Gaels as demonstrated by
their decisive 41 to 0 rout of the
Gonzaga Bulldogs.
Gonzaga has shown potential
power this year and has been not
ed for a defensive that should stop
the ordinary offensive. All of
which only means that the Saint
Mary’s power is not ordinary.
Many other factors will go to
make up that game, however, and
the Gaels can be beaten as was
demonstrated in the California
Gael game which the former won
7 to 6.

Idaho put up a fight last week
and showed that the Webfoots had
developed a few weaknesses since
handing a decisive beating to
Washington. With this in mind
and two weeks to develop for the
Southern California school, a
strong showing is in the offing.
The coming game should prove
interesting from two aspects. One
that it is the only conference game
in which the" Lemon and Green
meets a California school and that,
it is the annual homecoming game.
Reserves Worked
One of the weaknesses shown in
last Saturday's game was the ap
parent inability of the second

the line and it is evident from last
night's work with the reserves
that Doc is trying to bolster his
reserve strength.
One of the high spots of the
Vandal game was the manner in
which the Webfoots returned the
ball after the kickoff following
the lone Vandal score. Had the
timekeeper been a bit slower an
almost certain score would have

Football Different In 1894
Says Oregon's First Coach
Cal Young Avers Spears,
Rockne Best Coaches
In Country
In the days when the flying
wedge was football’s greatest play,
and tacklers could be evaded by a
straight arm to the face, Cai
Young was coaching Oregon’s first
football team and doing a mighty
fine job of it. On a day in March,
36 years ago, Mr. Young's team
smothered Albany college to the
tune of 43-2, thus beginning Ore
gon’s football history.
The interview with Mr. Young
took place in the lobby of the Eu
gene hotel. He wore high cowboy
boots and a big sombrero hat. His
hair was white, but his figure was
straight as an arrow and his eyes
a clear blue. Mr. Young looks
like he could turn out a good foot
ball team today if called upon to
do so as he was one day back in
1S94. But let Mr. Young tell his
own story:
“I learned to play football at
Bishop Scott academy in Portland,
which is now Hill Military acad
emy. Jack Gavin, who introduced
football to the state of Oregon,
was an instructor there.
‘‘I was in business in Eugene at
the time they asked me to coach
football at Oregon, but I accepted
and we got started in the spring.
That is how we happened to play
our first game in March. I had
a pretty hard job ahead of me.
The boys didn’t know football from
a cow.
“Football was very different
then. They used mass formations,
and couldn't use the forward pass.
A pass had to be made laterally

or backwards. The game of today
is more interesting, but it was
rougher then and harder on the
men physically. But I whipped up
a "team, and I don't think there
was another team in Oregon as
good as our team of 1891 with the
possible exception of Bishop Scott.
“Yes, I think Doctor Spears is
a wonderful coach. In fact., I be
lieve that he and Knute Rockne
are the two best coaches in the
country without exception. I told
Doctor Spears when he first ar
rived in Portland that what the
people of Eugene and Oregon want
is a winning team like some of
those we have had in the past. I
believe Spears will make a great
success. He has splendid material
in these Western boys.
“I particularly like the way
Spears conditions his men through
hard training. You can’t carry a
man on a cushion and expect him
to play football.”
Mr. Young lives just outside of
Eugene and is, of course, an ardent
follower of the team. He was in
the city Friday for the occasion
of the first reunion of the team
he coached in 1894.

Book Collection
From Yale Press
The Yale University Press has
sent to Professor James D. Bar
nett, chairman of the department
of political science, a shipment of
59 books published by the Yale
University Press. This gift is
made “in memory of William How
ard Taft (B. A., Yale, 1887), presi
dent and later chief justice of the
United States, who was one of the
first to interest himself actively
in the work of the Yale University
Press when this was founded in
1908; and in memory of Arthur
Twining Hadley (B. A. Yale 18J6)
and president emeritus of Yale
university, who himself declared
shortly before his retirement that
the one development on which he
looked back with the greatest sat
isfaction in his whole administra
tion was the development of the
publishing work of the University
following the establishment of the
Yale University Press, and the rec
ognition it had obtained through
out the world.” These books are
to be placed in the University li
brary, according to M. H. Doug

Royal Russian Chorus
No more closely knit artistic unit exists than the Royal
Russian choir, founded by Prince Dmitry Alexandrovitch
Agrenove-Slaviansky, at the command of the Czar, in 1858.
For nearly ninety years this venerable choral organization has
brought its interpretation of Slavic music to every civilized
country of the world.
Now Eugene music lovers have the golden opportunity to
hear the pride of all Russia. Don’t miss it.
