“There isn't a thing to it.”
With these words Prink Calli
son yesterday dismissed rumors
that he had been approached with
coaching offers by the University
of San Francisco.
Prink spoke this piece before the
report came over the wire that
George Malley. line tutor Don. had
already been awarded the head
coaching job surrendered by Spud
When news of Malley's selection
came buzzing into town, the Calli
son-for-San Francisco movement
dissolved into a great big laugh.

Round after round of speculation
about Callison’s chances of stick
ing at Oregon next year has been
fired around the state in the last
week or two.
The Webfoots had a sorry sea
son, no doubt of that. One bad
year, however, doesn’t necessarily
cost a coach his job. You can be
reasonably certain that Prink will
be back at the helm of Oregon's
gridiron ship next fall. It’s prac
tically a cinch that he’ll be handed
another one-year contract.

Oregon football can't be any
thing but an upgrade. Conference
championships, Rose Bowl games,
and a few things of that sort may
be will-o’-the-wisp dreams of the
wildest variety. Undoubtedly
they’re a long way in the distance.
But you can't resist a feeling of
optimism when you look at the
way the Webfoots line up for next
Of course, allowance must be
made for flunk-outs .and other in
cidentals which are ever cutting
holes in rosy prospects. Even with
a few cuts, though, Oregon’s pros
pective 1937 squad looms as a
crew boasting worlds of possibili
ty. Only five lettermen graduate,
and coming up is that fine crop of
freshmen developed by John War

Everyone seems agreed that the
backfield was the weakest part of
the OregGn team which won only
two of nine starts in the season
just closed. AH right, let's look at
next season’s backfield.
Starting at quarter, we find both
Den Kennedy and Arleigh Bentley
eligible again. Helping those let
tennen will be Dennis Donovan,
the hefty blond boy from Benson
Tech, and Ron Husk, the stocky
Franklin high lad who works at
either quarterback or guard. Then
there’s Ernie Robertson, reserve
this year. That’s five deep.
Halfbacks will be sitting in eaoh
other’s laps on the bench. Jimmy
Nicholson, Dale Lasselle, and Dave
Gammon will all be back, and no
less than half a dozen of Warren's
freshman behind - the - line main
stays will then be sophomores.
Little Jay Graybeal, who ought to
be heavier a year from now, is just
one of several ball packing aces
up from the Duckling troupe.
There will be Bob Smith, south
paw passer from Medford, for right
half, and at the same post strength
will be added in the person of Bill
Rach, who missed most of the past
season because of injuries. Two
other Smiths, Floyd of North Bend
and Robert R. of Grant high in
Portland, will also be in the half
back swim, and don’t forget shifty
Steve Anderson. Also there will

Leading sophomores in addition
