By TOM McCALL
Any member of the Webfoot squad
desiring to get All-American men
tion will have his chance in the
Washington game, providing said
aspirant scores' innumerable touch
downs, fills the air with passes,
stops every Husky play with at
least a ten yard loss, and kicks
nineteen field goals from the mid
Such, approximately, seems to
be the all star standards set up by
the All-American board’s northwest
scout, Royal Brougham, Esq., of
the Seattle P. I. Out of the fine
mass of football timber that has
been functioning north of the Cali
fornia line this autumn, Brougham,
Esq., has selected but one lad, By
Haines of Washington, to repre
sent his whole area.
By Haines is a great backfield
speedball with an accurate arm
and eye. He should not be over
looked in any selection of All
Coast or All-American. No indeed,
I have no argument to put forth
as to why Haines should not be
classed with the best in the nation.
It’s the gall of Brougham, Esq.,
that irks my works . . . When he
whipped out the lone name to rep
resent a gigantic section of land,
full of smart, fighting foolballists,
his conscience must have taken a
perfectly executed jackknife . . .
m a, *
I’d think thrice before I discard
ed Ed Goddard and John lilcy ot
Washington State, Bob McCue of
Idalio, Joe Gray and Maynard
Schulz of Oregon State, and our
own Boss Carter, Frank Michek,
Stan Itiordan, and Benny Bjork.
. . . Hist, Brougham, 'Esq., a warn
ing. Remember that Oregon, the
University with the second largest
number of men in pro-football, has
never had a first stringer on your
All-American board’s selection.
Recall, with qualms, that Bill Mor
gan of New York Giants, never
better than all-roast while at Ore
gon, was last year conceded to be
the best professional tackle ever
seen in the "big time” . . . George
Christianson, Oregon’s gift to I>e
troit, is in the same category. An
all-coaster here, he was chosen to
the other All-American tackle po
sition in 1»84.
Ed Goddard has turned in a fine
performance from a standpoint of
both quality and quantity . . . To
illustrate the amount and calibre
of his chores take his recent show
ing in the Idaho game. He made
possible a Cougar victory by car
rying the ball 39 times out of 51
scrimmage plays, threw 10 out of
the 12 passes attempted by his
team, and did all the punting and
punt returning for W.S.C. . . .
That performance would even
strain an All-American.
* * *
Brougham, F.sq., how can you
forget that dripping day a month
ago, when you sat in the press box
at Multnomah stadium and an
nounced to all and sundry within
earshot that the game going oil
below you (Cal-Oregon) was the
greatest you had seen in years. If
you really meant what you said
you might act accordingly. Maybe,
with a few weeks yet to the end of
the season, you are waiting to
make some close decisions. If so
Frank Michek lias a Worry
When down south for the UCLA
game Frank was telephoned in his
hotel room and asked if he would
be interested in playing with the
Westwood Bruins, member of Cal
ifornia pro-league, in a game
scheduled on the same day that
the West All-Stars, to which team
Frank should be chosen, play the
East All-Stars. Frank said he
would give the offer a frown or
two of consideration. Which he has
been doing since that day.
r rank Michek lias No Problem
It lias since been learned from
nn authoritative source that Fred
Canirinus, the powerful ex-Gael
who was supposed to have been on
the other end of the wire, was not
Canirinus but a smarty-cake team
mate of Frank's who wielded the
shovel with dexterity . . . Unreef
your furrowed brow and give a
sigh of relief, Frank, for it's high
time that this frame-up got out of

As Struggle With
Portland [J. Nears
An old friend of University of
Oregon gridiron fans returned to
the practice field yesterday after
noon after a month’s absence due
to injury. Clarence Codding, who
has been on the sidelines since the
Utah game with severely twisted
leg ligaments, was the familiar
face again back in suit.
Codding, senior veteran, was a
regular at right guard until his
mishap, and his recovery will be a
tremendous boon to Webfoot hopes
against Washington November 23.
There is no chance that he will
compete in the University of Port
land tussle in Multnomah stadium
Saturday, the risk of further in
jury to his recently healed wound
being too great.
Ducks Prepare for Portland
For the eleven Webfoots booked
to open the Pilot fray, yesterday
was another period of comparative
leisure. The first stringers tossed
the ball around a bit, ran a few
signal drills, and called it a day.
The second and third strings
took the brunt of the hard work
and scrimmaged furiously for an
hour. Although Callison plans to
start his regulars against Gene
Murphy’s dangerous outfit, it is
more than likely that the reserves
will see action before the final gun.
Dr Plttard Shines in Drill
Outstanding among the ball car
riers in last night’s drill was
Homey DePittard, McMinnville’s
chunky gift to Oregon football.
Playing left half in the second
team lineup, DePittard broke
away repeatedly for long gains.
Today and tomorrow will prob
ably see all practice confined to
dummy scrimmage, signal drill,
etc. Special attention will be
focused on means of halting Port
land’s reputedly deadly forward
and lateral passing attack. Mentor
Murphy has indicated that he will
throw a razzle - dazzle offense
against the Ducks, and Tutor Cal
lison is determined that his lads
will not be caught napping.
Pitots al Full Strength
With the exception of Jack
Johannessen, center, the Pilots will
be at full strength Saturday, and
there is more than an outside
chance that they may slip one over
on Oregon. In a never-to-be for
gotten struggle on Hayward field
two years ago the Portlanders,
then the Columbia Cliffdwellers,
lost to the Webfoots, 1-4 to 7, only
after a long touchdown sprint by
Maury Van Vliet in the final
Since that time the Pilot’s grid
iron fortunes have risen by leaps
and bounds, and it is apparently
only a matter of time until Port
land university will be rated with
the best teams on the coast. This
year the Pilots held Santa Clara to
a 20-to-7 win and lost to Oregon
State only 19-to-2. Last fall they
were barely nosed out by Santa

Louie Cook Is
Tourney Winner to
Be Decided This Week
The all-campus golf tournament
narrowed down to three men when
Louie Cook, freshman ace divot
digger, downed Frank Binns, also
of the class of ’39, last Sunday on
the muddy, slick Laurelwood
course. Both hoys played good
golf, considering the inclement
weather and the condition of the
course. Cook will meet the winner
of the Beryl Holden-Howard Hofer
match as soon as it is played, to
decide the championship.
Tennis Champs Vic This Week
The tennis doubles tourney
championship match will be played
sometime this week, with Dean and
Vaughn playing Finke and Faunt.
In the singles division, Bill Hutch
ison, Jack Heummer, and Harold
Faunt reached the semi-finals, with
results of the Bob Vaughn-Ed Rob
bins match not listed yet. This
week Bill Hutchison will meet
Heummer, and Faunt will meet
the winner of the Vaughn-Robbins
Decide Handball Doubles Finalists
Jim Holmes and Bill Johnson
will take on C. W. Chaney this
week to decide the championship
of the handball doubles tourney.
The singles division of this
event is still in the semi-final
bracket. The winner of the John
Rogers-Jack Coleman match will
battle the winner of the Bill John
son-C. W. Chaney match for the
title next week.
Gym Contract Bid
Opens Next Week
With bids open yesterday on the
new infirmary, Dr. Will V. Norris,
professor of physics, is in Portland
completing- plans for the men’s
gym so the contract may be open
tq bidders early next week.
Dr. Norris left Tuesday and is
expected back today, although
further work may detain him for
the rest of this week.
Dan McCarthy at quarter; John
Sullivan, left half; George Albin,
right half; and Dan Crowly at
fullback, will probably be sent
against the Ducks by Skipper
Murphy. The Pilots have two other
complete and formidable behind
the-line quartets, both of which
may get an opportunity to liarrass
The Pilots have seldom been de
feated in Multnomah stadium, a
fact which does not auger well for
Oregon. The left side of the Web
foot line, best on the Pacific slope,
coupled with a potent and hard
fighting backfield, will be the
greatest obstacle to the Pilots'
long-unfulfilled ambition of victory
over a conference team.
THE TYRANNY OF ONE MAN...
CHANGED THE NAVAL HISTORY
_ OF A NATION..!
I 5 DAYS J
Three victories, two defeats, and
no ties. That just about tells the
whole story of the 1935 freshman
football season at the University of
Coach John A. Warren, making
his U. of O. debut after several
successful seasons at Astoria high,
started his team in good shape by
garnering a 13 to 12 win over
Southern Oregon Normal and fol
lowing it up with a 12 to 6 victory
over Oregon Normal. The next two
games were played in Eugene, and
the frosh dropped them both; the
first to the OSC Rooks 9 to 0, and
the second to the Washington
Babes, 8 to 0. With two defeats
behind them, the frosh went to
Corvallis and evened up the score
with their arch rivals by a 6 to 0
Several outtstanding prospects
were uncovered by Coach Warren
for the 1936 varsity eleven.
Jimmy Nicholsen, 175 pound
quarterback from Salem, heads the
list of backfield prospects. He is
fast, clever, a hard driver, and can
pass and punt as well as play a
heady' defensive game.
Bob Anet, 170 pound quarter
back from Astoria, stands out
second only to Nicholsen. He is a
smart leader, a consistent blocker,
a clever ball-packer, and an in
valuable defensive man.
Dave Gammon, 180 pounds from
Portland, is another back who will
be heard about in years to come.
He is a hard-driving ball carrier,
and is the team's leading punter.
Jean “Coo Coo” Lacau, 200
pound dynamo from 'Frisco, has
the ability to be a second Mike
Mikulak. He is big and tough, and
is a battering ram on defense. La

Washington, are other backs who
showed varsity form at various
times and may develop into stars
by next year.
In the forward wall, “Hank”
Nilsen, smashing 180 pound As
toria wingman, leads the list of
prospects. He is a rugged, clever
player who was constantly spoil
ing opponents’ plays.
Bob Hinman, 180 pound Medford
end, was one of the fastest men
on the team and played a steady
game both on offense and defense.
Hinrwan is also a good pass re
John Yerby, 188 pounder from
Portland, flashed brilliant form at
Limes and may be outstanding next
year. His play was erratic but he
has the ability to be a real star.
Merle Peters, 195 pound Port
lander, Ed Hopper, 205 pound
Texan, and Cliff Morris, 228
pounder from Reedsport, head the
list of prospective tackles.
Charles . -evens and Nello
Giovanini were the two outstand
ing guards. Stevens, a 200 pounder
from Astoria, is fast for a big man
and displayed flashes of real abil
ity. Giovanini, of Klamath Falls, is
a tower of strength on defense and
opened big holes for the backs to

To Phi Psis
Betas, ATO, Sigma
Hall Victors Also
Phi Kappa Psi remained in the
selected circle of undefeated “A”
league volleyball squads by walk
ing over Alpha hall two straight,
15-10 and 15-3 yesterday.
Drew, Ringrose and Matthews
livened the game for the Phi Psi's
with their passing and spiking.
The Betas, ATO and Sigma hall
were all tied with the Phi Psi's
for first place honors with three
wins against no losses.
The Betas gave the Sigma Phi
Epsilon team a jolt by taking two
contests 15-9 and 15—11. Don Reed,
Hurd and McCredie stood out
among the Betas, while Lindgren
was sensational for the SPE's.
The dormitory’s lone undefeated
team, Sigma hall, kept its slate
clean by upsetting Delta Tau Delta
with apparent ease 15-11 and 15-5.
Winslow and Heller flashed for the
hall team, and Butler and Ballah
put up a stiff fight for the Delts.
Alpha Tau Omega exhibited
brilliant form and steady team
work in stepping on the DU's 15
13 and 15-3. Stroble, Patterson and
Danielson sparked for the winners.
AS TOLD TO BRUCE CURRIE
Remember Oregon State’s fum
ble in the first few minutes of the
game last Saturday ? It was Ken
yon Skinner, sophomore tackle
that recovered for Oregon, and
that was Skinner’s biggest thrill
It happened when Mountain, Or

Oregon’s right guard. Mountain
was met by big Frank Michek,
Oregon fullback, who hit him so
hard, that the ball flew out of his
Skinner, ever alert tackle,
snatched the ball from the air and
plowed his way through the State
players until he was dragged down.
What a thrill!
Oregon now in possession of the
ball deep in Oregon State’s terri
tory drove through the Beaver
team to score the first of their

high school in Los Angeles. He is
the largest tackle, and player on
this year’s varsity football squad.
Ken weighs 216 pounds, and is 6
feet 3 inches tall.

lands and Juell starred.
After losing the first game 15-8,
the Chi Psi's put up a gallant
struggle only to lose the second
straight finally to the Yeomen by
a 16-14 score.
Phi Sigma Kappa broke back in
to the win column by taking two
contests from Omega hall by the
same scores that the Yeomen over
came Chi Psi. Woods and Jordan
were consistent for the Phi Sigs.
