But Hard Games.
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

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
As head coach of the Univer
sity of Oregon, Prink Callison has
the chance to earn for himself a
reputation equal to that possessed

Drills Inside;
Coach Gloomy
Showers Dampen Bill’s
Practice Plans
Veteran Infield on Hand
With Peppy Show
For Onlookers
“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
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

has with which to mould his 1932
baseball machine.

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
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
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.

of irregular expense accounts.
Nurmi was suspended by the
council pending the result of an
investigation by the Finnish fed

take such a probe by the interna

The Finnish autnorities charged
in effect, that Nurmi had been

The international council is not
