As yet, the material that will be

team is fairly undecided, but in
the squad that turned out for the
first session, there was shown that
the 1932 team will be all that can
be expected of it.

Men of Troy To
In Rose Bowl Tilt
Mix With Tulane
Pigskin Toters From Land
Of Cotton To Try for
Two football teams emerged
from the turmoil of upsets in last
Saturday’s grid games to climb to
a favored position in the gridiron
limelight. These squads, who are
expected to fight it out for the top
rung in the national football lad
der in the annual Rose Bowl gam?
at Los Angeles, are Tulane from
the South and Southern California,
who represents the Pacific Coast.
Tulane at Top
The Tulane team is the only ma
jor undefeated and untied aggre
gation in the country, and al
though several smaller schools
have had a perfect season they
have not shown anything to war
rant national recognition. The Tro
jans from U. S. C. were defeated
early in the season by an inspired
St. Mary’s eleven, but their victor
ies over California, Oregon, and
Notre Dame since their early set
back have placed them in a favored
place to win the national laurels.
Northwestern, the only other
contender for leadership in the titu
lar race was upset by Purdue 7-0,
while the above mentioned teams
were winning handily from weaker
W. S. C. at New Orleans
Sunday, a determined'Washing
ton State team left Pullman, Wash
ington, to travel to New Orleans to
have it out with Tulane in the
game of most interest to football
fans in the Northwest. From com
parative performance, W. S. C.
has hardly an outside chance of
winning from one of the three un
defeated teams in the country but
Babe Hollingberry and his boys
left for the Gulf with all the deter
mination to uphold the West’s im
pressive record in its invasion of
other sections of the country for
the past season.

O. D. Young Requests
Aid of Universities
Nationwide Cooperation in
Regular football season finishes
during this week, but football
games will go on for another week
to carry out the nation's need for
funds for charity. In all sections
of the country, in response to the
call of Owen D. Young, the spokes
man of President Hoover, this na
tion-wide post season is something
absolutely new in the history of
the game and is tremendously sig
nificant. It is the method by
which the students of the schools
and colleges are endeavoring to do
their bit for the unemployed.
The plan was formulated in New
York on November 17, with Mr.
Young officiating, and the result
of this meeting has been that 131
colleges have responded to Mr.
Young's call for aid. Seven of
these teams will give the net proc
eeds of one regular game. Reports
are not complete of high school
and preparatory school plans, but
many are being arranged and it
is probable that they may exceed
in number those to be played by
East—Western Maryland and
University of Maryland.
West—Miami university, Cincin
nati university and Northland col
South—University of Chatta
nooga and Tulane.
The colleges that plan to give
a percentage of the proceeds of a
regular game are:
East—Holy Cross, Boston col
lege, Amherst, Williams, Manhat
tan, College of the City New York,
Hobart, Worcester Tech, and Ro
South—University of Virginia.
The colleges that will play spe
cial games are:
East — United States Military
Academy, United States Naval
Academy, Yale, Brown, Holy
Cross, Dartmouth, Providence,
Rhode Island State, Columbia,
Princeton, Cornell, Pennsylvania,
Union, Rensaelaer, Davis & Elk
ins, Pittsburg, Duquesne, Car
negie Tech, Penn State, Lehigh,
Long Island university, St. Johns
West—Washburn college, Has
kell Indians, Westminster College
of Missouri, Findlay, Adrian,
Notre Dame Team B, Purdue
Team B, Northwestern, Michigan,
Purdue, Wisconsin, Ohio State,
Minnesota, Indiana, Illinois, Chi
cago, Washington university, Ore
gon State, Quincy, Notre Dame,
Wooster, Utah, University of
Oklahoma, Marquette, Creighton,
and St. Louis university.
South—Georgia Tech., Univer
sity of Kentucky, Duke univer
sity, Oglethorpe, and Guilford.
In addition, special games will
be played by the Chicago Bears,
Chicago Cardinals and Cleveland
Indians, professional teams.

The Northwest’s contribution to the nation-wide plan -of unemployment relief this season will be
the Utah-Oregon State game in Portland next Saturday. This game, the proceeds from which go en
tirely to charity, is part of a widespread collegiate support of Owen D. Young's plea for relief funds.

TONIGHT’S THE NIGHT!
IN THE PRESS BOX
——— with Walt Baker-^
REGON'S football season is now a thing of the past.
For almost three months some 40 green-shirted men
enrolled in college here have spent most of their
time, in fact anywhere from four to six hours a day,
developing a team to represent the University.
At the outset of the 1931 season, it was hardly
thought possible that the Webfeet would put any
thing so very much on the field. New men, inex
perienced, and a small turnout for the sport put a
crimp in any pre-season dope that was given out
from this part of the country. The University of
Washington and Oregon state were tne real contenders trom this sec
tion, with Oregon a very weak dark horse. Oregon beat Washington
and tied Oregon State to win a purely emblematic Northwest title;
lost to Southern California and finished up the season in third place
on the Coast with one defeat—a sparkling record for a gloomy out
For out-of-lhe-schedule games, the Webfeet won four, lost one
with St. Mary’s, and tied with North Dakota, including a 14-6 victory
over New York university.
The resume is inadequate, but it gives a fairly good representa
tion of the potentialities of future Oregon teams. Six men graduate
from this year's eleven and, of these, only two are regulars. Looks
bright for next season, doesn’t it?
FRESHMAN OUTLOOK DIFFERENT
Perhaps the biggest factor entering in any consideration for Ore
gon’s chances next year is this year’s fresmaan squad. This yearling j
outfit, unlike any other freshman team ever to enroll at the Univer
sity, is made up of ball-players who love the game and play it because
it’s football and not just because they enjoy wearing a felt numeral
around for the rest of the year. In past years, it has been the custom
of the University freshmen to turn out for first-year football, make a
numeral and then drop the sport, leaving a big job on the hands of
a coach in bringing in new material to a varsity depleted by gradu
The 1931 freshman team are football players, good football play
ers, and hold the game in high esteem for the love of the sport itself.
Next year’s varsity will see practically the entire squad back to turn
out for what will be the start of one of the most spectacular eras in
football at Oregon. It may seem premature to predict anything and,
from the way our dope has been going of late, more of a drag than
a boost, but the Webfeet, under Doc Spears’ tutelage, will start a
j climb next year that will eclipse anything heretofore in Oregon foot
OREGON DUE TO “GO UP’’
My basis for this statement is the fact that Oregon’s 1931 “sopho
; more’’ team are now veterans of 10 tough games, nine out of the 11
starters of the games at the end of the season will be back in uni
form next year; and about 25 of the footbaliingest Frosh ever to ap
pear on the campus will be in there to round out a squad that will,
in time, hold its own with anything in the country. Oregon finished
up the season with a .750 win average with an admittedly uncertain
! team - and it is open to conjecture, although the situation is pretty
plain, just how will the powerful eleven of 1932 perform? Our guess
is that in about two years the Webfeet are going to start knocking
lover all comers—beginning with 1932.

Season for 1931
Driving Green-Clad Team
Swept To Defeat Before
The 1931 football season at the
University of Oregon Is a thing of
the past. Last Thursday, when the
Webfeet closed the present season
with a 16-0 loss against St. Mary’s,
the gridders from Oregon hung up
their moleskins and cleats for an
Coach Dr. Spears ran into the
same unfortunate circumstance
that toppled St. Mary’s from the
pinnacle of Coast football by try
ing to take on three hard games
in the short period of 12 days—it
can’t be done successfully, as both
teams have found out.
Too Many Games
The Gaels dropped a couple of
heart-breaking ball games to the
Olympic club 10-0 and to U. C. L.
A. three days later 12-0 while Ore
gon came through with a win over
i the ruins, only to wind up the sea
son with a second straight loss to
the Gaels, after only 5 days rest.
The Webfeet played all over the
field during the first half and the
ball game was going on for most
of the time inside the St. Mary’s
30-yard line. Three times Leighton
Gee kicked out of bounds inside
: the St. Mary’s ten-yard stripe and
, three times did the Gaels stave off
| a touchdown by bracing with Bro
| veil! kicking out of danger.
And then the second half. All
' it took was the Gael score on the
first kick-off of the period and Bud
Toscani scampering down the
field 98 yards to put the Moraga
Marauders on the upper hand.
1 From then on, it was the same old
■ story for Oregon—the inability to
come from behind to win.
Although in this final game a
loss was a hard pill to swallow,
the previous records of the only
two teams to better the Webfeet,
namely U. S. C. and St. Mary’s,
somewhat take the sting out of the
losses. One, the Trojans, is being
seriously considered for a national
championship after downing Notre
Dame for the first time in the
Irish’ 26 starts and the other the
Gaels’ claims fhe distinction of be
ing the only team to tromp on
these potential champions.
