Recently the Bruins journeyed
back to Evanston, 111., to meet the
strong Northwestern football team
and these coast men played a spec
tacular game against the probable
champions in the middlewest dis
trict. It was the stubborn defense
of the far westerners that caused
the ripple of astonishment through
out the grandstand. The score of
this game was 19 to 0 in favor of
Northwestern but the predicted re
sult was much more lop-sided.
The Oregon men have a chance
to recuperate after their upset of
N. Y. U. last week as they have
no game this week. Then come
games in successive weeks and in
every one of them tough oppon
ents. The Bruin game comes the
Saturday following the Homecom

and for this reason will make the
southern team’s chances better.
Spears will probably take this
game in stride and not point for it
as the more important St. Mary's
contest comes five days later.

in outstanding men this season

was heralded one of the best de

to consider the game “in the bag.’
These two important games
played thus far by the U. C. L. A
Bruins have caused that team tc
be confident rather than disheart

have done marvelously well consid

two of the outstanding teams of
the nation. Neither Stanford nor
Northwestern have been defeated
yet this season and the results
especially the Stanford contest,
bolster the stock of the California
school considerably.
At the present writing Oregon

Spears Puts Reserve Men
Through Long Scrimmage
With Frosli on Return Home
Webfeet Faced With Three Hard Games During
Next Twelve Days
Giving his men little time to rest
after their 3000 mile trip across
; the continent. Coach Doc Spears
i sent the entire second and third
stringers through a three-hour
scrimmage yesterday with Prink
Callison's husky freshmen. Most
of the first string members sat on
j the bench.
Spears is not letting any grass
i grow on Hayward field while he is
! faced with three of the season's
hardest games — with Oregon
State, U. C. L. A., and St. Mary’s,
all in a period of 12 days. The
first contest comes on Saturday,
November 14.
Leighton Gee, who performed so
sensationally in New York, was
reported laid up with influenza and
did not show up for practice yes
terday. Red Rotenburg, who is
still bothered with a sprained an
kle acquired in practice before the
Violet game, was the only other
not present.
Practice Against Frosli
The freshmen gave the varsity
players quite a roughing yesterday.
Paul Starr, reserve half and star
sprinter on Bill Hayward's track'
team, showed several bursts of
' speed as he reeled off considerable
yardage against the yearlings.
Homey dePittard, Don Watts and
Ray Kelly were used through most
of the scrimmage.
Spears will continue to hold the
gruelling practices for the team
until just before the Oregon State
game. There are eight days left
before the annual Homecoming
Players who made the trip re
ported that the longest workouts
they have had were on ends of the
trip across the continent. On Tues
day morning after the squad ar
rived in New York they were sent
through a three-hour drill. The
same thing happened on their re
turn to Eugene.
Scout O. S. C. Game
Gene Shields and Jack O'Brien,
who scouted the Oregon State
Washington State contest in Port
land last Saturday, brought back
a long list of Beaver plays and

use them in scrimmage against
the varsity. The Webfoot mentor
is plainly worried about the out

OME again! You
could almost see
the words print
ed across the
faces of the
Webfeet when
they stepped off
the train in Eu
gene today.
Three solid
weeks of train
riding and football have been a
pretty hard dish to get down and
still fail to leave their traces. They
looked a little tired this noon when
faced with the biggest gathering
for a team’s homecoming ever as
j sembled at Oregon and the after
i noon’s program did alleviate that
feeling a bit, we would hazard a
The first day back home gave
them just barely time to change
clothes and then hustle up to a
workout to start in immediately
in getting out that rail stiffness.
Probably what was one of the
toughest scrimmages of the year
lasted till about 6:30 under the
field lights. As usual the Frosh
team furnished the cannon-fodder
and took all that the varsity had
to offer, right in the chin for two
and a half solid hours—a business
like greeting to celebrate their re
* * *
But aside from the sob angle of
the thing, the Wefofeet are going
to need everything in that old bag
of tricks that Spears ever put
there, for the Oregon State game.
There’s one ball club that will put
up one lively scrap for the annual
Homecoming event. Last Saturday
while the Ducks were taking New
York to the cleaners, the Orange
men played perhaps what was one
of the dumbest and heart-breaking
games of football to lose to Wash
. ington State. According to every
1 possible statistic and any amount
of figuring, Oregon State should
have won. The lack of a field gen
eral and the inability to pull them
selves together in the pinches cost
them a win—and don’t think that
they’re not going to do something
to prevent the same thing from
happening again.
Schissler has lots of good ma
terial over there—Hal i£oe, who is
perhaps one of the outstanding
the coast; Buck
Hammer, a rough
and tough center
who raised lots of
trouble with the
Oregon line last
year; Davis and
Curtin, as fine a
combination o f
ends as he could
wish; and a back
field of Biancone,

a host of other A-l material that
ought to be getting started along
about now if they plan on coming
up to their potentialities. No ques
tion about it—there’s plenty of
material over at State and the
Oregon game is just about the
right time for it to swing into ac
Also, we hear that Schissler Is
visioning the handwriting on the
wall and contract or not, four loss
es and one win (assuming that O.
S .C. beats Montana) will start
the ball rolling toward some kind
of a shift. What better psycholog
ical setting could anyone wish for ?
Perhaps Paul John would just as
soon not have the setting as is and
be represented in the win column
a couple of times to date but tak
ing things as they are, he has a
perfect blueprint for an emotional
appeal that should be able to tear
loose the dressing-room tables.
* * «
Oregon is fresh from a win over
one of the strongest teams in the
country and Doc Spears is back in
the good graces of the crepe-hang
ers and back-seat drivers that were
hot on his trail after the U. S. C.
game. They’re at the top of a heap
that means three more teams yet
this season are going to do every
thing possible to topple them off.
Oregon State has its teeth set for
a victory over Oregon and they
i have the stuff to put up a spec
tacular battle over the decision.
The Webfeet clicked in New
York —they didn't in Los Angeles
and the question in the offing is
"What will they do agafhst. Ore

Akers was police reporter on the

As a roving journalist his ex

Cassiar country in northern British
Columbia. While in the Cassiar
country he freighted with tractors,
rafted supplies, ran donkey en

He has always been interested in
writing fiction but has just seen
success. He once covered a yacht
