Frosh Race by
ONS Reserves
At 45-0 Pace
Whole Yearling Squad
Gets Into Action
Strong Combination Seen
In Backfield Working
Under Callison
Flashing a scoring spree in the
second quarter, Prink Callison’s
freshman football outfit walked off
Hayward field yesterday with a
45-to-0 decision over the Oregon
k normal reserves. It was the first
appearance of the season for the
After a slow first period, the
frosh found their stride for a while
and ripped through the Normal de
fense for four touchdowns and
were deep in the Monmouth men’s
territory -on the way to another
when the gun sounded. The half
ended with the Oregon yearlings
in the lead by a 32-to-0 count.
With the beginning of the third
*..ea»to Callison began running in
his substitutes and before the
quarter was over most of his
charges had seen some action.
The flash that the frosh had
shown in the previous quarter
faded and they barely held their
own with the Normal eleven with
out even coming close to scoring.
Regulars Return
Late in the game most of the
starting string was returned to the
game by Callison, but except for
a few times, it didn't display a
^ great deal of sparkle. Two scores
resulted from beautifully executed
passes from Clarkson’s effective
left hand to “Butch” Morse. These
tallies and Bevan’s conversion
boosted the total to 45 points for
the game.
For their first game the year
lings showed up as having great
potential power, and many of the
men should prove to be a big help
to Doc Spears next season. Pre
cision was sadly lacking for the
most part and ohly occasionally
did the outfit function as a pol
ished unit. When this did happen,
however, the frosh displayed a
powerful combination. If they
come through with the expected
improvement which Callison’s
tutelage should provide, this year's
crew should attract plenty of at
tention before the short season

way around the world from Eu

What thoughts are allowed to

Indian monsoon season are turning
backwards toward Freshman Week
and the opening of the football

must somehow manage to struggle
along without our help for the next
three months.
Mid-winter in July
We are writing this report more
or less in the dark, for we haven’t
heard a word about the big educa
tional squabble on the Oregon
front since we left at the first
of June, and for all we know the
University of Oregon is now but
another "tradition,” with ivied
[ halls as empty as the ruins we saw
at Delhi a couple of days ago. And
even the esteemed Emerald may
■ be nothing but a journalistic
memory of brighter days.
' We arrived in New Zealand, the
first arena of our international
debating endeavors, about the first
of July, and found collegiate life
in mid-winter swing, whirling
about the central interest of the
rugby-football season. The rigours
of the snowy weather which we
encountered at Dunedin on July 4
were very nearly enhanced by a
compulsory ducking which we re
ceived from our student hosts at
Otago university, in charming com
memoration of the day “on which
we so graciously granted you your
Team Wins 12 Out of 10
We divided a total of seven
weeks between New Zealand and
Australia, holding 16 debates in
8 different cities. Modesty almost
forbids us to say that of this num
ber we won 12, but foreign cor
respondents must tell the truth, no
matter how much it hurts.
The uniformly hospitable and
genuinely friendly spirit with
which we were received in these
first two countries of call was
heartening, and gave us ample
reason to overlook the fact that
scarcely anyone knew where the
state of Oregon was located, and
that those who did considered its
position much inferior to that of
California. Chamber of Commerce,
where are you ?
The American college student is
a romantic and fearsome figure in
the minds of New Zealand and
Australian students whose judg
ments are formed from the “col
legiate” motion pictures. They

For Classic Contest
Merle Hufford Certain To Be
In Starting Lineup
T TNIVERRITY OF WASHINGTON, Seattle, Oct. 10.—(Special to
^ the Emerald). With ideal weather predicted, the University of
Washington and the University of Oregon will meet here in their an
nual grid classic.
Last-minute word has it that Merle Hufford, Husky backfield star,
will start in today's game, although he has not as yet fully recovered
from injuries received in the Montana game.
TON, Seattle, Oct. 9. (Special to
the Emerald) Joe Lillard will
play in today's game, unless some
thing unforeseen happens, and
Jimmy Phelan, the Husky mentor,
says he is glad of it. He has spent
Lvvo weeks in developing a defense
to stop Lillard, and he’d hate not
to use it.
The weather here is clear and
jold — ideal for football and
everything seems to point to a
good game tomorrow. Seattle is
all “hopped up” for the game, and
was treated to a big pep demon
stration down town this evening
by the Washington rooters. The
band played at the Olympic hotel
at 8 o’clock.
Hufford, Husky ace, is still suf
fering from injuries received last
Saturday when Washington played
Montana, but is expected to start
tomorrow. Morgan and Gee, of
the Webfoots, are still bothered
with sore shoulders, but are in
shape to play.
Oregon held a secret practice
session on the Washington field
today, while Washington worked
aut at the Inglewood Country club.
Phelan has rebuilt his entire sjs
tem to center on Lillard.
Betting odds here are 10 to 7
an Washington, or 7 points on
Oregon, with everyone predicting
a close contest.
Nearly all seats are sold for the
game tomorrow, and it is believed
that a crowd of at least 35,000
will be on hand. Lillard is receiv

irisn Jimmy ' i'heian ana Hoc Spears, who will direct the
Oregon-Washington game from the sidelines in Seattle today. These
two rivals from the At'ddle West once again find themselves on oppo
site sides of the fence i.i the same league.
r Betting odds here favor Wash
ington, 10-7, but a close game is
predicted by all. The teams are
considered on a
par offensively,
but Washington,
I because of its
heavier line, is
given, the edge
on defense.
The city of Se
attle is on edge
in anticipation of
today’s con test.
A large pep rally
was staged down
town last night
Doc Spears
by the Washington rooters to stir
up enthusiasm, and a near sell
out is predicted.
The Oregon squad took a light
workout yesterday in secret, in
the Husky stadium, and are said
to be all set to go when the whistle
blows at 2 o’clock today.
Lillard and Hufford seem to be
the center of controversy, and the
fans are looking forward to some
good excitement when they op
pose each other today.
On the eve of the big game,
Coach Jimmy Phelan of Washing
ton is worried by the morale of
hi3 proteges. He has made state
ments to the effect that they are
ready for most anything except a
tough battle such as the tilt with
the Oregonians will be.
Except for a very few men,
Phelan declares that his team is
not in the right mental condition.
“Irish Jimmy” regards this game
as the crucial point in the des
tinies of the Husky combination
this year and will strive with all
his assembled power to pull a win
over the Webfoot eleven which
defeated him last year at Port
j Line-up Withheld
While the Washington starting
lineup has not been made public,
it is certain at this time that Merle
Hufford will start at his old half
back job. Hufford has acquired
the name "Hula-Hips” on the
northern campus and rightly so,
for he is one of the most deceptive
runners in this conference.
Much of the drive depends upon
Hufford, and as he goes, so goes
the whole Phelan tribe. Hufford is
a triple-threater and he is expected
to make his final year at the
Husky school a banner one. He
seems one of the logical contenders
for all-American honors this year
if he is up to form. He was named
on one authortiy’s selection in this
capacity his sophomore year.
Buse May Start
It is likely August Buse will
open at fullback, though the con
census of opinion around Seattle is
l that Paul Marlowe, the defensive
flash, who has been coming up
1 rapidly, will undoubtedly see action
and even may start in place of
I Bill Marsh, 190-pound, left
| handed passer, with two season’s
l service, will probably be Phelan’s
choice for quarter. Bill Walcott,
also a letterman, is slated to be
i Hufford’s mate at the other half.
Other backs who are making
j their services popular are Johnny
| Cherborg, Elmer Martin, Jack Pat
rick, and Clarence Bledsoe. They
