A Wise Choice. i ■ Good Material. But Hard Games. ■-By DICK NEUBEKGER rpHERE came to Portland on Thanksgiving day of 1928 a Medford high school football team coached by Prink Callison. The pur pose of its visit was a game with Benson Tech for the prep cham-! pionship of the state. Medford had swept through all oppo sition in the Kill Morgan southern section of Oregon, but Benson hadn't done I so badly in the Portland high school league, so the odds on the encounter were practically even. They remained so for six minutes of the first quarter, and after that the parade formed to the right. Medford scored its first touchdown after seven minutes had elapsed. The point-producing m6dium was a long pass from little Bennie Har rell to Bill Bowerman. From then on Benson was a licked team. Medford marched on with increasing effectiveness, scor ing again in the first quarter and reaching touchdown-sod at least once in every period thereafter. The Medford lads tried everything, in the books, and most of it worked. Long runs through the line by the late A1 Melvin, interspersed v/ith passes and bucks, took the boys from the south across Benson’s! goal line six times. The Portland youths functioned only when John ny Biancone, now halfback for Oregon State college, was carrying the ball, and even Johnny failed to penetrate the Medford defense con sistently. 5»* •!• sjs That team which Prink Calli son developed played spectacu lar football and played it well. Its remarkable performance against Benson made such a repu tation for its young coach that the next spring Prink was asked to come back to the University as head freshman mentor. Calli son worked one year under Cap tain John J. McEwan and two under Doc Spears. His opera tions as coach of the freshmen were equally as satisfactory as his work at Medford, his foot ball teams losing only two games in three seasons. Prink got his big chance a week ago when Doc Spears de cided to return to the middle west as iiead coach at the Uni versity of Wisconsin, which had been seeking his services for considerable time. Thus an Ore gon boy enters the Pacific Coast conference as coach of the school from which he graduated nine years ago. In so doing, he suc ceeds one of the outstanding football coaches of the nation, a man who ranks along with How ard Jones, Bob Zuppke, Pop War ner and Amos Alonzo Stagg in the lists of America’s gridiron greats. As head coach of the Univer sity of Oregon, Prink Callison has the chance to earn for himself a reputation equal to that possessed ENDS TODAY rko j2a£b pictxjrs 25c Till 6 EMERALD SPORTS STAFF Dick Neuberger.Sports Editor Bruce Hamby .Asst.

Oregon Nine Drills Inside; Coach Gloomy Showers Dampen Bill’s Practice Plans Veteran Infield on Hand With Peppy Show For Onlookers By BOB RIDDLE “April showers bring May Flow ers,” says the age-old epigram, but they bring nothing but gloom to Coach Bill Reinhart and some 30 baseball aspirants. As a result practice is carried on in McArthur court until conditions change for the better. With nine lettermen on hand, prospects for a winning team are very bright. An entire infield of veterans is available, including Shaneman and King, catchers; Chester, first base; Londahl, sec ond; Stevens, short-stop; and Pot ter, third base. Infield Looks Good Two outfielders, Mimnaugh and Palmer, and one pitcher, Ken Scales, complete the total. Other likely candidates for positions are: Mikulak, third base; Donin, pitch er; and Pozzo and Wishard, out fielders. The boys put on a peppy show for the few enthusiastic onlookers duiing yesterday's drill. An in field composed of Chester, Lon dahl, Stevens, and Mikulak showed exceptional pre-season form while whipping the ball about in a fast fifteen-minute workout. Reinhart donned the catcher’s pad and took part in the fracas. Hurling Still in Doubt Bunting, sliding, throwing, and batting have comprised the major part of past sessions. Little is known as to pitching prospects. Should a good, dependable man show up for this duty, and a heavy-hitting outfielder or two, things would look far from dismal. There .will be adequate strength behind the bat, a fast, snappy in field, and two veterans in the out field, which should leave very little to be desired. As soon as the weather clears up Reinhart plans to work in earn est, and discover what he really has with which to mould his 1932 baseball machine. by any coach in the country. It is all up to two things—what he him self produces and the support he gets from the University and al umni. * $ * Callison has made a remarkable record as both a high school and freshman coach. No once has he met failure. The elevation to the position of head coach may be just another lift along the road to foot ball fame. As aforementioned, he has the opportunity to do wonders' for himself and the University— and there’s every indication he will succeed. * * S! There are certain circumstances connected with the football situa tion that cannot be overlooked. In the first place, the material is ex cellent. On the other hand, the ’ schedule is difficult. These vital factors almost counter - balance each other, giving Prink a start from scratch. Not only is there an abundance of freshman material coming up, but practically the entire varsity which made such a fine record un der Spears last autumn is return ing. Chuck Wishard, Red Bailey, Captain Bill Morgan, Biff Nilsson, Bernie Hughes, Mike Mikulak, Hurray It’s DIME NIGHT BERT ^ WHEELER ROBERT WOOLSEY Akad*> PtCTuftt rr.1-I-1. - W 'Wutk The Laugh Parade la Doncmn Here LEE Doors Open 0:30 COME EARLY Jack Stays Here Here s John J. (Jack) O Bnen, who’ll stay at Oregon as a mem ber of Prink Callison’s football coaching staff. O'Brien came here two years ago with Doc Spears. It has not been decided whether Jack will be freshmen or varsity coach, but it is certain he will be depended upon to do most of the scouting. Mark Temple, Leighton Gee and Bill Bowerman—nine regulars will be back. The schedule this outfit will face is no bed of roses, however. It has to meet Pacific, Santa Clara, Washington, U. C. L. A., Idaho, Gonzaga, Oregon State, and South ern California on successive week ends, to say nothing of St. Mary’s on Thanksgiving day. Incidentally, Prink is one of the youngest coaches in the Pa cific Coast conference. He is only 32 years old, less than half that of the venerable Glen Sco bey Warner, Stanford’s sagacious leader. Howard Jones, Jimmy Phelan, Slip Madigan, Bill Spaul ding, Paul Schisslcr, Navy Bill Ingram and Babe Hoilingbery are all older than Prink. The only other coach around Prink’s age is Leo (’a Hand, the youthful Idaho mentor. That’s quite a tribute to Cal lison—to be virtually the young est leader in one of the nation’s foremost collegiate circuits. In gram, Phelan, Schisslcr and Madigan are all near Doc Spears’ age, 38. By the way, when Doc was appointed head coach at Dartmouth in 1917, he was the youngest head coach in the nation, being only 23 at the time. There’s no doubt that Oregon’s team will play spectacular foot ball this autumn. Prink’s clubs al ways have put all the excitement of a four-alarm fire into their games, and he’ll probably instill a similar atmosphere into the var sity combats. Everyone on the campus agreed yesterday that the selection was a happy one. Dr. Arnold Bennett Hall, president of the University; Brian Mimnaugh, president of the Associated Students; Hugh E. Ros son, graduate manager; Professor H. C. Howe, conference faculty representative; Tom Stoddard and Doc Robnett, assistant graduate managers, and all the other execu tives were satisfied that the foot ball destinies of the University are in safe hands. — Miss Pik Wan Holi To Speak at Y.W.C.A. Miss Pik Wan Hoh, Chinese stu dent at O. S. C., will be the guest speaker of the Y. W. C. A. World Fellowship group during a special meeting tonight. The meeting will begin at 7:30 in the Y bungalow.

Hayward of ficially donned his new 28-stripe sweater yesterday. Eaoh band of color on the sweater signifies a year of service as head track coach at Oregon. The sweater was presented to Hayward by the Associated Stu dents. For a genera tion Colonel Bill has trained the Haywara athletes of Oregon, producing track and field teams that consis tently swept through all opposi tion. From the way he looked when he slipped on his new sweat er for the first time, it could easi ly be supposed that he will con tinue to turn out such teams for another 30 years. Not only has Byi worked as track coach, but for this same time he lia3 served as trainer of Ore gon's football teams. Despite the many changes in the grid coaching retinue now being considered the veteran Colonel will be back on the staff and continue to get Ore gon's athletes in condition for their games and keep them that way. This spring Bill starts his 29th season with the Webfoot track and field athletes, and already he has a promising group of runners, jumpers, hurdlers, and weight men going through their paces daily in the stadium which bears his name. Not only is Hayward busy with Oregon athletes, but for the last few Olympiads he has been fi. member of the coaching staff for the American track and field en tries in the Olympic games. He is now planning for the games this summer in Los Angeles, and not a few of his Oregon proteges will be in the running for places among the United States entries. DONUT CHATS by JOSEPH SASLAVSKY Prospective entrants for the various all-campus athletic tour neys, which are to get under way on next Monday, March 11, are few and far between. The horse shoe rivalry has not attracted a single aspirant for the barnyard! golf title so far, while the candi dates for the crowns in the tennis singles, tennis doubles, and golf events seemingly are not in a very great rush to place their signa tures on the entry lists which have been posted in the men’s gym, Earl Boushey, director of intra mural athletics, advises all men’s organizations intending to enter the sundry intramural tourna ments, which are also to begin on next Monday, to con carefully the list of rules he sent with the en try blanks for the interhouse events. He hopes to see the argu ing which featured the rivalries last year eliminated as far as possible. # Sj* *|! The rules which are to be en forced at the soft ball tilts in the donut tourneys are the regulation baseball rules with the following major exceptions: No spiked shoes may be worn. Batter may run on third strike or fourth bail, if ball is not caught, but may not go farther than the first base on the play. Each foul ball is a strike, except on third strike. Not more than one base may be stolen on over throws at first, third, or home. Any number may be pilfered on overthrows of second. A baserunner may not steal un til ball passes the batter. A baserunner may take a lead on a hit and run play; if, how ever, the batter does not hit the ball, the runner is subject to being put out at the advanced base; if he reaches the advanced base safely, he shall be ordered back to the original base. A pitched ball hitting batter is dead. A pitcher may take only one step in delivering the ball. Length of game is seven inn ings; in case of rain, four com plete innings will be considered an official game, except in champion ship series. Recreation Instructor To Continue Meetings Under the auspices of the Na tion Recreation association, Rob ert Murray will head the second day of recreation meetings today at 3:45 p. m. in Gerlinger hall. “Home Play,” which wii! include ways of recreation for all mem bers of the family.

Eighth Finnish Athletic Officials Aroused By Nurmi Probe j Alleged Padded Expense Account Causes Suspension HELSINGFORS, Finland, April 14.—(AP)—Finnish athletic author i ities were aroused today over the suspension of Paavo Nurmi, Fin land's great runner, by the council of the Amateur Athletic federa tion, meeting in Berlin, on charges of irregular expense accounts. Nurmi was suspended by the council pending the result of an investigation by the Finnish fed eration, which was asked to under take such a probe by the interna tional body. The Finnish autnorities charged in effect, that Nurmi had been suspended by the international body without a hearing and with out writing to receive the report from Finland. They said the re port was requested for late in April. The basis for the suspension was not officially disclosed but was be lieved to involve charges of padded expenses accounts for appearances by Nurmi in Poland, Italy and Germany. The international council is not scheduled to meet again until just before the Olympic games in Los Angeles. There is little doubt that if the Finnish federation gives Nurmi a clear bill of amateur health the international body will accept it without question. It al ways ha3 been the procedure. Accountants To Mix In Kitten-Ball Game The senior class in accounting, school of business administration. Monday accepted the challenge of the junior accountants to a five inning game of kitten-ball to be played on Kincaid field April 9 at 10 o'clock. According to the challenges posted on the school bulletin board, certain stipulations will be in ef fect. These hold that instructors for each class are to play for their respective teams and that a joint committee will select the ball and bat. Daniel D. Gage, professor of business administration, has been suggested as umpire. Junior and senior accounting students are urged by the commit tee in charge to sign up at once for positions on the respective teams. PI DELTA PHI TO INIITIATE April 7 has been set as the date for the formal initiation of Pi Del ta Phi, French honorary, pledges at 5 p. m. in Gerlinger hall. Dr. A. R.

A. in First Game Beaver - Ducks Stronger This Year; McDonald Gets Assignment By RUSSELL jTnEWLAND (Associated Press Staff Writer) SAN FRANCISCO, April 4— (AP)—Baseball’s thirtieth annual grand opening in the Pacific Coast league will take place tomorrow when the eight clubs of the big class “AA" circuit swing into ac tion for the 26-week pennant j scramble. San Francisco’s Seals, cham pions last year, will open their 1932 campaign here against the Seattle Indians. Minus the ser vices of such stars as Frankie Crosetti, shortstop, and Sam Gib son, pitcher, both big leaguers this season, and Henry Oana, heavy hitting outfielder who is on the sick list, the Seals will start the series with no early assurances they can take the measure of their northern rivals. The Seattle entry has given spring training indica tions that it is possessed of a punch. Beaver-Ducks Improved Hollywood’s Stars, runners-up in 1931, will line up at Oakland against the Oaks. Los Angeles’ Angels and Portland’s Ducks, ad mittedly the most improved clubs in the league this season, will start the schedule in the south. The San Francisco Missions will jour ney to Sacramento to test the strength of the Senators. With poor attendances for spring exhibition games to look back upon, the Seals will turn to night baseball immediately after the opening contest. The other Cali fornia clubs will follow suit at in tervals. Los Angeles officials plan to return to the after-dark performances as soon as the weather becomes warmer. Oak land will go in for the “owl game” after returning from the first road trip, the first week of May. Sac ramento’s opening night date is indefinite but probably not far off. Portland Looks Strong Although all clubs claim either to be as strong or stronger than last season, early indications point to a three-cornered battle between Portland, Los Angeles and Holly wood. Portland stacks up on paper as a powerful club built around sea soned men. The Ducks have five men down from the Athletics, Hank McDonald, pitcher; Higgins, infielder; Moore and Finney, out fielders; and Palmisano, catcher.
