Mikulak publication’s poll
of the nation’s best footballers the
fullbacking job on the .second team
was handed to Mike.
Differing from most all-Ameri
can teams, which are usually se
lected by a small group of news
papermen or an even smaller
board of coaches, the all-players’
selection sponsored by Liberty was
made from a tabulation of votes
cast by 1508 gridiron performers
from 19 colleges and universities.
In this compilation of mythical
elevens a more accurate indica
tion of a player’s true worth is ob
tained than by any other method
of selection. If anyone is qualified
to say how good a man is, it most
certainly is the fellow on the team
which opposed that man. If his
opponent thinks he is good he has
passed the acid test.
This method of picking the top
notchers not only reduces the po
litical element to a minimum but
it also cuts out the favoritism or,
shall we say, biased judgment
which crops in now and then even
when the best of the so-called ex
perts are picking them.
Another advantage gained
through having the players them
selves name the best men who
faced them is the lessening of the
publicity factor. Many an all
American has gained that ranking
primarily because he was boomed
by one or more sports writers. The
agitation would begin in a small
way and gradually gain momen

By BILL EBERHART
Coach Bill Reinhart is sending
his boys through tough paces this
week in preparation for a return
engagement with Washington next
week. The Huskies play a two
game series with Oregon State in
Corvallis this weekend and jour
ney to Eugene for a like engage
ment next Monday and Tuesday.
Two weak points in the Web
foot team cropped out in the se
ries in Seattle last week sloppy
ball handling and inefficient de
fense. These are the wrinkled
spots in the Oregon playing that
Bill is trying to iron out this week.
The former deficiency lost the
ball game last Friday, and Satur
day night’s tilt was won hy Wash
ington chiefly on the scoring
spree of Bob Galer.
Galer Hard to Stop
It is a strong' possibility that
Reinhart will find no one capable
of holding down high-scorer Galer.
Bud Jones and Bob Miller, two
of the biggest and strongest
guards on the squad, .were used
against Galer in Seattle, but
neither could stop him. Oregon
players report that the Husky ace
shoots in such a way that nobody
could stop him when he's hot
fakes forward, draws back, and
takes a high two-handed shot in
the midst of a backward stride.
Knowing what to look for,
though, will be a big advantage
for the Webfoots in the coming
series, and Mr. Galer may not do
so well in McArthur court next
week. Reinhart and his squad are
more optimistic about the next
encounter with the championship
headed aggregation than they
were before the series last week.
They've felt the Seattle team out,
know what they can do, and feel
fairly ^confident of bowling the
top team over for at least one

Wally Hng and Jim Reed Outstanding

Lone Yearling Firs!
By GEORGE JONES
The 'Webfont varsity swimming team last night splashed
its way to an easy victory over the Ducklings in the Gerlinger
pool to the tune of 50-24. Wally Hug scored 13 counters, to
lead the victors’ scoring parade.
The older performers had the situation well in hand from
the start, although the yearlings pulled up to a 11-10 conn'-,
when Bob Dean copped the 200-yard breast stroke. The meet
at times developed into a comedy of errors, as frosh and \arsii\
men alike splashed into the water before the signal. The offi
cials were new to the task and several of the swimmers had
not participated in bona ride*
matches before, hence the ragged
Dean Bests Mayer
Although the yearlings lost by
a large margin, several fine pros
pects were uncovered. Dean, win
ner of the breast stroke, set his
pace nicely to barely nose out Ken
Mayer of the varsity in a hair
line decision. The varsity, how
ever, w-as handicapped by the loss
of Forrest Kerby. Leonard Scrog

formed in a manner to gladden the
heart of Coach Hoyman, almost
catching Wally Hug in the 40
yard dash. Chuck Reed also dis
played great promise.
For the varsity, Hug was out
standing. The big fellow copped
two firsts and participated in the
final relay. Jim Reed easily out
distanced his opponents in win
ning the 160-yard backstroke by
a lap. Francis Oglesby won the
