Will Wally or won't Wally?
Meaning not Wally Simpson, but
Wally Palmberg. Rumor yesterday
had it that Palmberg won’t pla>

the Corvallis all-star outfit clash
es with the Webfoots in the hoop
opener at the Igloo tonight. An
other rumor had it that he will.
Apparently there’s nothing much
to do but wait and see. Very like
ly he won’t, for he didn’t play ir
Wagner’s first game with a bunch
of pickups at Oregon State. But
the will o’ the wisp from the
mouth of the Columbia is listed or
the team's roster, and that’s
enough to give fans hopes of see
ing the elusive lad and his demon
shooting, dribbling, and passing
Much more important than the
Palmberg issue is the fact that
Hobby Hobson’s Webfoots will be
out there tonight for the first time
and we’ll have a chance to see just
how they look in action.
They’re big enough. They’re fast
enough. But they lack experience,
They look smoother in practice
than last year’s outfit.
The Webfoots may look ragged
tonight, for fast-breaking teams
usually do early in the season. But
it’s a dead cinch that they’ll put
on an interesting, colorful exhibi

one) admits you to the Igloo to

And a lot of others.

a real team, one which ought to

The ex-Beavers pilay here to
night. Tomorrow night it will be
the ex-Webfoots. Multnomah club,
which provides opposition for the
Ducks tomorrow, has on its roster
Chuck Patterson and Sam Liebow
ilz, a pair of gentlemen who ac
complished various and sundry
things on the shining boards for
Oregon last winter.
Also with the club will be Car)
Lenchitsky, member., of.. Oregon
State’s 1983 coast championship
team. Other leading clubbers are
Jack Eagle, Hal Eustes, and A1
Elkins. Which means another
tough game, just the kind of early
scason test the Webfoots need.
Here's one of the louder laughs
of the waning football season.
The Stanford Daily is protesting
vigorously against the numerous
“upstart” bowls which are cutting
into the glory and fame of Pasa
dena’s Rose Bowl. The Indian stu
dent organ cries out that the Rose
Bowl is sacred and a few other
things, and that the Sugar Bowl,
the Orange Bowl, and the Sun
Bowl are encroaching on its terri

Ducks Play Corvallis Team in Hoop Opener Here Tonight
Awards for Varsity;
Bjork and Farrar Will
Twenty-five Oregon varsity foot
ball players have been recommend
ed for letter awards by Prink Cal
lison, head coach. Awarding of the
monograms officially writes f*nn
on the 1936 season.
Senior members of the team, w.a
will receive three-stripe sweater*
and “O” blankets are Captain De'
Bjork, all-coast tackle, and Ed Far
rar, center. Seniors earning sec
ond letters were John Engstrom
end, and Bob Braddock, halfback
Pat Fury, tackle, earned his first
award in his final season of play
Other second year winners were
Lief Jacobsen, Tony Amato, Joe
Huston, Vernon Moore, Dale Las
selle, Bill Estes, and Kenyon Skin
First Letters to 13
Players receiving first letters are
John Yerby, Dave Gammon, Leon
ard Robertson, Chuck Bracher
Tom Blackman, Chan Berry, Nellc
Giovanini, Hank Nilsen, Don Ken
nedy, Jean Lacau, Jimmy Nichol
son, Bill Foskett, and Arleigh Bent
This season's Webfoot team had
the least success of any since Cal
lison began coaching here in 1931
Only two of nine games were won
Six were lost and one tied. The
team finished in the Pacific coast
With only five lettermen gradu
ating, prospects for 1937 are much
brighter. Twenty stand-out pros
pects will be up from John War
Bjork Greatest Loss
Of the men completing their ca
reers, Bjork will be the most
missed. Fury was understudy to
the big Astoria left tackle. With
both Bjork and Fury gone, left
tackle looms as the most danger
ous spot on next season’s team.
Braddock will be missed in the
backfield, but a host of Duckling
backs will lessen the importance
of his loss. Engstrom was a tackle
a year ago and this season was
moved to end. Farrar has alternat
ed as a regular at center for three
All that remains of the season is
the annual banquet for the team
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Calli
tory and taking significance away
Which is worthy of a guffaw
from practically everyone. The
Rose Bowl is a fine intersectional
exhibition, no doubt, but it’s no
more of a championship affair than
any other game. It's the most over
emphasized thing in football.

Ed Dooley in the Oregon State
Barometer comes right out with
what seems a rather hold state
ment. Says Ed in his “Daily Bull
“Oregon State’s 1937 Football
Team will Play in the Pasadena
Well, the Beavers don’t lose any
body over there, but just how they
figure on a hop into the Pasadena
enclosure is something your cor
respondent can’t fathom.
That 18-to-0 win over the Web
foots put Oregon State football up
in the clouds. ‘Even the Nebraska
slaughter didn’t knock the Bea
vers down. But the Rose Bowl is
something else again.

Stars Spark Lineup of
Oregon's 1937 varsity basketball
team plays its first pre-season
game tonight when it meets the
powerful Wagners’ Independents
of Corvallis on the Igloo court.
Opening tip-off is set for 8 o'clock.
Students will be admitted on pre
sentation of ASUO cards.
Spectators will be treated to a
colorful fray as the lemon and
green-clad Webfoots, whose attack
is based on speed, speed, and more
speed, tangle with a clever, rugged
and smooth independent quintet
which will probably be led by Wal
ly Palmberg, who last winter
gained all-coast, all-American, and
about everything honors as a
member of the Oregon State Bea
vers. Three other ex-Beavers, Cliff
Folen and Wilbur Kidder are
teamed with the elusive Palmberg,
which should make the game
seethe with the traditional rivalry
Coach Howard Hobson an
nounced his starting lineup last
night as John Lewis and Dave Sil
ver, forwards; Ray Jewell, center,
and Bill Courtney and Ken Purdy,
Lewis is a two-year letterman,
a stylist on floor work, and the
main spring of the Ducks’ passing
attack. Southpaw Silver, one
handed push shot artist, is expect
ed to be the scoring threat in the
contest. Jewell, who has taken
over tip-off duties due to the ineli
gibility of Laddie Gale, is the most
improved man on tho squad.
Courtney at Guard
Courtney, at one guard post, is
brainy, a clever ball handler, and
his defensive work is of the fly
paper school—he literally sticks to
his man. A smooth passer and
accurate shot, Purdy is rated as
the dead eye of the team.
Others slated to see action are
Wally Johansen, sophomore for
ward, member of last year’s year
ling team, and before that a stand
