❖ Quacks
By Tom McCall
A few moments of quiet, please,
for at this time I am going into
the realm of the future where so
many great contests are transpir
ing. I hope I find the right door
to dreamlands’ stadiums because
last week the feature game of my
seance saw Gonzaga wallop OSC.
Anyhow, I got in the right sta
dium to see the UCLA-Stanford
game and to send that prediction
down to posterity.
* * *
Everything's turning black now.
(Just like the last time I passed
out.) There is a strange roaring
in my ears which grows louder as
time flits. A light approaches and
grows as it approaches, like a fast
moving dawn.
Objects are becoming more dis
cernible. Noise is everywhere. My
eyes and brain focus suddenly. I
am lying in the middle of a heavily
traveled intersection. Tall build
ings brood above. I glance at the
swirl of traffic about me. A heavily
loaded van approaches, surprises
me in my prone position, and rolls
over my protesting body. Darkness
again. The white light and
anaesthesia of the hospital ward.
“Good morning,’’ coos a sweet
set of pipes.
“Good morning?’’
“Good Sunday morning.”
“No? Prove it.”
“Here is the paper. Read the
I snatch it. It’s an L.A. paper
dated October 19th. Holy smoke!
There is a box on the front page.
Holy smoke! It’s packed with
football scores.
Holy smoke! Here is what I

Webfoots Ready to Go
The Webfoots are ready to go,
but, as usual, Callison is in a
gloomy mood. Loss of Bud Goodin,
his backfield ace, has depressed
the Duck mentor considerably, and
with good reason, for none of the
three left halfbacks now on deck
appears capable of completely fill
ing his flying cleats.
Dale Lasselle, slight and shifty
sophomore from Grant, is fairly
certain to receive the starting call
at the important ball-carrying
post, but Romey DePittard, 180
pounder who starred here three
years ago, is still a starting possi
bility. Speedboy Bobby King is

Fullback Frank Mfchek will
captain the Oregon squad, with
Bust ’em Bob Braddock at right
half and consistent, hard-hitting

Andy Hurney to Start
The forward wall of the driving
Ducks will shape up about as it
has in previous tilts when the
opening whistle sounds today. In
dications last night were that Ed
Farrar, Oregon’s veteran center
who suffered a jaw bruise in the
California fray, would assume his
regular position this afternoon.
Sophomore Vernon Moore will be
Johnny-on-the-spot for relief duty
if Farrar tires, and it is still pos
sible that he may start.
The only likely alteration in the
first-string Webfoot line will be
at right guard, where Handy Andy
Hurney, who can play any otd po
sition satisfactorily, is scheduled to
open over Tony Amato. Hurney
started' last week, but Amato has
been considered the regular.
Oregon's two bidders' for all
coast laurels, Del Bjork and Ross
Carter, are ready at left tackle and
left guard respectively, with Ken
Skinner booked for the other tac
gle berth. Stan Riordan and Budd
Jones will be at the wings.
Oregon Leads in Series
Idaho hasn't beaten the Web
foots since the pre-historic days of
1926, when Vernon “Skippy” Sti
vers, now coach at Benson Tech,
passed and plunged to a touch
down that gave the Vandals a 6
to-0 triumph. The only other Ida
ho victory over Oregon came the
previous year, in 1925. when the
count was I3-to-0.
Those games were played in the
hey-day of football glory at Mos
cow and the dark ages of grid his
! tory at Oregon. In 1927 the Van
dals earned a scoreless tie with
the Ducks, but the following fall
1 Webfoot domination began m ear
nest. Since then Oregon has
crushed the Idahoans six times in
a row. Total figures for the 24
contests played between the two
teams show Oregon with 18 wins
to a lonely two for the Vondals,
with four tussles ending in dead
Past records don’t daunt the
sturdy lads who absorb their foot
ball knowledge from Ted Bank,
however, and they'll be out for
blood today.
The Idaho squad, 30 strong, ar
rived in Eugene yesterday and
snapped through a workout in the
stadium. Bank is somewhat un
certain as to his starters, but the
established first-string team is ex
pected to open. At quarterback
there is a possibility that Clarence
Devlin, made-over halfback, will
get the call over Russ Honsowetz.
Theron Ward, fleetest back for
his size west of the Rockies, will
be on hand to pack the mail at
left half. Harvie Walker, a senior
who has never before started a
varsity game, is almost sure to
open at the other half, with pile
driving Ross Sundberg in line for
the fullback job.
Behemothic Bob McCue, one of
the few pass-heaving tackles in
captivity, is Idaho’s outstanding
linemen. McCue, hero of many a
Vandal conquest, flips 50 yards to
a dime without batting an eye.
Norman Iverson and George Rich

Other Idaho forward wall reg
ulars are Gene Brado at right
tackle, Johnny Cooper and Stonko
Pavkov at the guards and Joe
Wheeler at center. Jim Moore,
tackle star of the Vandal-Webfoot
clash here two years ago, is also
due to see action.
Outstanding reserve backs on
the Idaho roster include Paul Wise,
quarter; Jere Maupin and Leslie
Holmes, left halfbacks; Dean
Green and Willie Maxson, right
halves, and Lewis Rich and Wen
dell Dayton, fullbacks.
Ducks Close Drill
Callison sent the Webfoots
through a brisk closing workout
last night. All men are in good
shape. If and when the Ducks push
over their touchdowns, Winifred
Pepper, sub guard, will be called
in to convert. Pepper has been
practicing on boots between the
cross bars all week and last night
he was splitting the uprights con
