Bear Stories Taboo in Minds of
Oregon Gridiron Coaches and #*#
Scribes. •
Even a none too ardent follower
of Oregon State football publicity
would receive the impression that
the "Four Horsemen” are staging
a rodeo over on the Orange cam
Prominent in all headlines per
taining to the welfare of the
neighboring eleven, are such words
and phrases as, "Orangemen Rest,
Football Players Recuperate, So
and So Is on the Shelf, Orange
Injured Slowly Recorver,” all of
which were extracted from but
two papers which I happened to
pick at random. Following this
black dirge of the headlines were
stories which would bring the
brine thundering from the eyes of
the strongest of men; stories that
make one see giant athletes broil
ing under heat lamps in a welter
of bunting and tape, while outside
a few of the lucky are running
through light signal practice, sup
ported by crutches or fast moving
wheel chairs. Then comes the Sat
urday of the game bringing with
it not the slightest vestige of the
mile long bandage of the previous

There is no doubt in my mind
that the best of the “bear story”
artists in the Northwest function
at a no more disant point than
the city of Corvallis. It would be
interesting, to say the least, to
watch the scribes there, slugging
at the conrols of the Underwood,
clad in their raiment of tear
stained sack-cloth.
Hardly less prolific in the dis
pensation of near obituary trea
tises, are the publicity men of the
state college of Washington. There
groans a ghastly group of grid
iron gazers!
Sob stuff is apparently as prev
alent in the sporting set-up as
your quarterbacks, forwards, and
Now the point that I have been
trying to reach, via all the pre
ceding blabber, is that the public
ity man for the University of Ore
gon athletic department doesn’t
conjure up images of crutches and
heat lamps for practically every
report. The coaching staff doesn’t
approve of “bear” stories, either.
Consequently, when you read that
an Oregon athlete is injured and
out for the season, he is injured
and out for the season. Still
it’s not often that, you’ll have to
wade through a list of casualties
and long lines admitting that the
home team is starting Saturday
with a few professors, house moth
ers, etc., to supplement the one
player on the squad who is still
“in toto.”
Y’s to Conduct

100 Pacific Northwest
Delegates to Be Here
Approximately 100 delegates

The two Hoffman brothers,
members of Phi Sigma Kappa,
spoiled whatever hopes the Phi

finals with the Betas last night
when they combined efforts and

The contest was an interesting
one. even though it had only a few
spectators, and, at times, devleoped
into a real slug-fest. Both goalies
made their share of spectacular
saves but the Phi Delt goalie, Har

direct shots. During the contest,
the Phi Sigs never had to apply
real pressure until the end of the

From the Past
No less an authority than Parks
“chess maestro” Hitchock issued a
standing challenge today that has
the campus agog. Hitchcock, cap
tain of a team composed of Lloyd
Speer, Ed Pitt, and Roy McMullen,
has dared Dr. Eric A. Pollard of
the German department and any
three faculty members he may
choose, to engage in a battle of
brains across the chess board.

Houses Having Most
Alums Present Win
Two new Homecoming alumni
attendance cups have been pur
chased and engraved by alumni of
ficials and are to be awarded this
weekend to the fraternity and so
rority having the largest number
of former students present.
It will be absolutely necessary,
stated Robert Allen, alumni secre
tary, yesterday, that to be counted
in the judging, all alumni must
register in Johnson hall sometime
between 1 o’clock Friday and 5
o’clock Saturday.
Get Together Planned
Allen suggested that alumni
would be given a good opportunity
to register at the cafeteria get to

morial hall Saturday noon.
Circular letters have been sent
to all living organizations by alum
ni officials asking students to bend
all efforts to see that every alum
ni registers and attends the cafe
teria instead of eating at the hous
es at that time. Saturday night
will be the “big night” for alumni
at houses, he said.
Faculty Invited
Members of the faculty have
been especially invited to attend
the cafeteria, and whereas it is not
a student-alumni affair, students
will not be denied entrance, al
though a minimum charge is to be

“Swing left, your partner,” and

Townspeople dressed in cos

joined in the Paul Jones, square

a typical barn dance orchestra
which consisted of a piano and two
fiddlers. Mr. Fishcel from Junction

Shades of the Past
Recalled by Ducks
In 36th Civil War’
Gents From Corvallis
To Face Webfoots
In Annual Classic
Next Saturday
A gridiron civil war that began
in the days when grandpa courted
grandma down by the old mill
stream and bicycles were built for
two will be fought anew, for a 36th
time, when Oregon’s Webfoots and
Oregon State’s Beavers battle on
Hayward field Saturday.
The shining new walls of Villard
hall thrilled the gay young blades
and wasp-waisted maidens on that
long ago day in 1894 when first
Oregon's football warriors clashed
with the Aggies.
The score was 18 to 0 for the
mustachioed young farmers from
Corvallis, but since that historic
tussle Oregon has recorded 22 tri
umphs to 9 for Oregon State. On
seven occasions the teams have
ended their annual struggle in a
Oregon Victor for Three Years
. ..During the past decade, however,
rivalry between the two schools
has been almost even, though for
the most ..recent three ..seasons,
since 1931, the Webfoots have
emerged victorious. Last year it
was 9 to 6, the year before 13 to
3, and in 1932 the Ducks were on
the happy end of a 12 to 6 count.
The 1931 engagement was a
scoreless tie. In the preceding
year, 1930, the Beavers recorded
their final triumph, 15 to 0, on Bell
field'. Not since 1927 has Oregon
State drubbed the Webfoots here.
Saturday’s game, feature of
Homecoming, most joyous event of
the year for thousands of old
grads, will be the first Oregon
Oregon State contest staged on
Hayward field’s storied sod since
1931, year of the double goose egg.
For two autumns the state’s two
major institutions of higher learn
ing have grappled on the gridiron
of Multnomah stadium in Portland,
and in 1932 the yearly fracas took
place in Corvallis.
Teams Appear Even
Forgetting ancient history in the
swirl of today’s enthusiasm, a
glimpse at season’s records and
performances indicates that Sat
urday’s game is almost a perfect
toss-up. Oregon has more power,
more consistency, more experience;
Oregon State more speed, more
brilliance, more occuracy through
the air lanes.
With Lon Stiner and his Bea
vers will come sophomore Joe
Gray, famous “jumping Joe” of
Roosevelt high, one of the out
standing halfbacks in the West.
GrAy's passing proclivity, coupled
with the shifty running of another
sophomore half, Bob Mountain,
has enabled the Staters to score
at least one touchdown against all
of the six teams they have faced
this fall.
Completing the battering Beaver
backfield are Wayne (Happy) Val
ley at fullback and Jack Woerner
at quart?-. To nullify the touted
prowess of this formidible behind
the-line quartet, Prink Callison has
mighty Frank Michek, Bud Goodin,
Bob Braddock, and Johnny Reisch
Injured Beavers Recover
Reports from Benton county are
to the effect that the long list of
Beaver injuries is rapidly dwind
ling and that all the Orangemen
will be fit for action against their
arch rivals. Oregon State won a
hard-fought tilt from Portland
University Saturday, 19 to 2.
Prink Callison is drilling the
Webfoots behind locked stadium
gates this week. For the first time
this season everybody is barred
save players, coaches, trainers and
student managers.
Though the Ducks' practice pro
gram for the week is known to
consist of work on fundamentals
—blocking, tackling, signal drill,
ets.—Callison is taking no chances
on exhibiting anything before the
prying eyes of Oregon State scouts.
The Webfoots will run through
every offensive play on their
books during the week, including
power plays especially designed for
the Beavers.
Rhode Island once had laws pro
viding penalties for refusal to ac
cept public office on election.
