I Business j
/~VNLY a few years ago Pop War
ner started the football v/orld
with a new backfield offensive, the
now famous "B"
Clipper Smith
formation. This
was after the
[ late Knute Rock
| ne had put forth
his dazzling sys
tem of reverses
and spinners. Ev
ery football
coach has had his
I dream of a new
\ and mighty of
"i fensive. Add to
this list the name
of Maurice “Clip
j/ci Luav.ii av. »jama vyiaia.
He has devised a new attack which
he believes will revolutionize the
framework of modern football. He
calls it the multiple spinner attack.
The primary end of this attack
is to check the ever increasing ten
dency of defensive linesmen from
playing unorthodox football. Tn
other words, Coach Smith decided
something must be done to create
a system whereby his linesmen
could have definite assignments,
instead of chasing “running
guards” and “drifting centers” ail
over the field.
# t
The multiple spinner attack, on
the word of good authorities, is
this: The backfield is composed of
two men who spin at exactly the
same moment in such a manner
that the bodies of each overlap. A
bird man, the outside back, revers
es. At the instant the ball reaches
the two spinning backs, he like
wise reaches the spot. Thus the
three men are together momen
tarily with the ball hidden from
view. The three then break into
three different parts of tlie line,
one carrying the ball. The fourth
back is used for interference or de
ceptive purposes.,
And here’s where Clipper plans
his revenge on the floating lines
men. When the three men hit the
line at three spots the defensive
linesmen will bo caught short and
forced to resume their orthodox
charge. Then the offensive lines
men have a chance to get a regu
lar blocking assignment.

Jack 0'Brinn, Oregon’s genial
scout, is one of the new forma
tion’s staunchest supporters; after
watching the Broncos upset the
Golden Bears last week. Accord
ing to Jack it is almost Impossible
for the defensive players to figure
just where the ball-carrier will hit
the line. It. must be baffling, for
the Broncos certainly fooled the
California players for four quar
ters of football last Saturday.
# * *
This lad "Diamond Joe” Paglia,
Santa Clara’s fullback, is certainly I
a great bet for publicity writers.
It was his phenomenal punting
against Stanford last year that
started the custom of placing cof
fins at each corner of Old Mission
field at Santa Clara. Again >t the
Indians. Podia displayed such ac
curacy in placing punts in the cof
fin-corners that the Broncos made
n regular ccemonv of it Coffins
were placed at each corner of the
field, representing the dead hopes
of Snnta Clara’s four chief oppo
nents California, Stanford, Uni
versity of San Francisco and St.
Joe officially opened fall prac
tice bv directing kicks at each of
the coffin-corners. If one of five
three tries lie had at each of the
white sepulchres was good, it was
regarded as a symbol of victory
for all four games. He must have
hit California's coffin three times.
In an exhibition just before the
California game last week, Paglia
kicked seven out of ten trfh •. into
a blanket at 40 yards. l!is most
famous trick, however, is to punt
the ball into a barrell at 40 yards.
So don't be surprised if he starts
putting them out of bounds on the
ore or two-yard line tomorrow af
ternoon. It’s all in the day’s work
for him.
At last the mystery of Paglia’s
nickname. “Diamond Joe.’’ is
solved. Joe hails from Black Dia

Webfoots Drill Vigorously-Santa Clara Battle Tomorrow1
Oregon Guns Set For First
Big Game; Morgan Likely
To Remain on Bench in Tili
The chance of a lifetime faces Prink Callison and his husky squai
of Webfcots tomorrow when they face the high-riding Broncos fron
Santa Clara in the first of the big games on the 1932 schedule.
Should Callison's crew come through with the unexpected, it
fame would be universal. Should the Webfoots lose, it would just b
another "I told you so” story. So with everything to gain and litth
to lose, the Webfeet. are more than primed for the battle of a life
i timr.
Lads Work Hard
Since the rather disappointing
' showing of the Ducks against the
Pacific Badgers a week ago, Cal
lison has been driving his men
hard in preparation for Saturday’s
! conflict. A team of reserves has
! been displaying the Bronco plays
1 which Jack O’Brien brought back
I from California and the first
team's reaction has been gratify
ing. Many new plays have been
added to the Oregon repertoire as
well, and from the looks of things
Callison will shoot the works in
the tussle.
Unless last minute changes are
made, the starting Oregon lineup
will bn practically the same as the
one that opened the Pacific game.
This will include Gee, Temple,
Bowerman, and Mikulak in the
backfield, and a line composed of
Wishard and Bailey at ends, Eagle
and Nilsson at tackle, Clark and
Frye at the guard positions, and
either Hughes or Chase holding
down the center berth. Thus the j
only probable changes will be that
I of Frye at guard and Hughes a
Morgan on Bench
Bill Morgan, captain and hare
luck athlete, will not see actioi
during the game. Bad luck seemi
to haunt Morgan during his col
lege career. During the 1931 sea
son Bill suffered a sprainet
shoulder which handicapped hin
considerably throughout the yeai
and now his sprained hand refuse!
to heal as expected and so he wil
be forced to witness the tilt froir
the players' bench.
Reserves Plentiful
Another lineup which Callisor
will undoubtedly U3e during th<
game includes the backfield ol
Kostka, Terjeson, Bobbit, anc
Parke, and a forward wall com
posed of Morse and Pozzo, ends
Pope and Bishop, tackles; Cuppo
letti and Gagnon, guards; anc
either Swanson or Gemlo at center
Other candidates include Browne
Clarkson, Lancaster, and Pepeln
jak, backfield; and Smith, Codding
Starr, and McCoy in the line.
Intramural Race
To Start Oct. 10;
Swimming Is First
New Regulations in Effect
For Present Year’s
Swimming is the first of intra
mural sports listed for this year,
according to Paul R. Washke, di
rector of donut activities. This
competition among the fraternities
and halls v/ill start October 10.
In order that various living or
ganizations may secure informa
tion about the intramural sports a
24-page booklet has been prepared
and sent out by the physical edu
cation department. It is a guide
for intramural athletic managers.
The P. E. school will have direct
charge of all sports this year. It
is the hope of VVashke and his as
sociates that every man on the
campus will enter competition.
There are IS different sports list
ed, giving everyone a place on
some team.
A new feature this year will be
the formation of two basketball
leagues instead of one. The teams
will be divided into two leagues.
The A lengue will be for those who
a^e expert at basketball, while the
R league will be for those who can
not make the A teams.
A meeting of all athletic mana
gers has been called for Tuesday,
October 4, in the men’s gymna
sium. House presidents are urged
to select managers for the house's
intramural activities.

Chuck Swanson and Ned Simpson
for help. Black Diamond is a small
mining town somewhere between
Seattle and Tacoma. Neighboring
towns are Puyallup, Enumclaw and
Kent. Take your choice.

j —i-By BOB KIDDLE —
| pRINK CALLISON’S 1932 foot- j
1 ball edition strutted its stuff
for the first time before more than'
2000 fans, Friday night, Septem
ber 24, against Pacific. Although
unimpressive and unseasoned in
spots the starting lineup and the
score or more substitutions Calli
son ran into the game showed re
markable possibilities. Thirty
eight of the forty Webfoots on the
bench got into the contest. ,
* * *
The Badgefs from Pacific proved
much more able adversaries than
v.’f. s expected and had the Wea
foots in a bad way when they toot;
advantage of a fumble in the ini
tial period and turned it into a
touchdown on two plays from the
seven-yard stripe. From that time
on, however, it was all Oregon,
even though the score of 26 to 6
does not show any marked supe
riority for the Callison cohorts.
* * *
The Webfoots were without the
services of Capt. Bill Morgan, who
suffered a sprained hand during
a previous practice session, and
Sernie Hughes, first string center.
Hughes pulled a tendon in his left
leg In the same strenuous session.
Morgan’s position was capably
taken care of by A1 Eagle, last,
year’s freshman captain and star
tackle, while Chase, another as
-'rant from the 1031 frosh outfit,
filled in the center position.

his right hand man busied them
selves diagramming every play

thing is certain, however, and that
is that very few plays other than
straight football were used. Calli

Dapper Maurice Smith and his
squad of “free-wheeling” Santa
Clara Broncos will arrive from the
South this morning at 11:30 in
time for a final workout before
meeting Oregon tomorrow after
noon. The Broncos traveled north
on the same train carrying Pop
Warner and the Stanford squad,
who tangle with O. S. C. tomorrow
The Broncos come north with
the same squad that upset the
Golden Bears last week at Berke
ley 12 to 0. The team came
through the California game with
out serious injury to any of the
players. Accompanying Coach
Smith and the team is a small
group of Santa Clara rooters.
For the past few years Santa
Clara has been edged out of the
football limelight by close defeats
at the hands of larger California
schools. This year the Broncos
opened their season with a start
ling upset of the highly-touted
Bears. Around the Bay region the j
odds are on the Broncs to continue 1
with the sensational start and put
Oregon on the list of defeated
Heading the squad of husky
players is “Diamond Joe” Paglia,
the outstanding punter on the
coast and Santa Clara’s hope for
All-American honors. Two other
players, Bill Denser, right half,
land Charlie Molinari, guard, are
jsure to get recognition when the
jail-stars are named.
Other outstanding players on
the visitors’ roster are A1 Dowd,

back; Gil Dowd, end; and Vin
