Why and how and other pertinent details.

Stupendous! Colossal! Super DeLuxe! That's the heading I
of a hook put out this summer hy Bruce Hamby, Oregon pub
licity chieftain, about Brink Callison’s Webfoot gridmen.
Well—we wonder about that. Bruce. One thing sure about
it. Oregon's gridiron history will read I P this season. That j
is the only direction the Ducks can travel. Down on Los Angeles j
turf this evening Oregon’s green sophomores face their first!
opposition in a scrappy 1'CLA team which remains to be tested.
Down in the l'elan stronghold they're saying this. “A chain
is as strong as its weakest link—a football team is as strong as i
its weakest link a football team is as strong as its line. Behind
a crack line the Bruins could easily skyrocket into the front
rank of Pacific coast contenders, for the backfield is second to
itone." Right there is where foxy Bill Spaulding pauses to
scratch his head.

Oregon s 1936 eleven presented a reverse headache to
silent Prink. Line Coach Gene Shields had a forward wall paced
by blonde Del B.jork, all-coast tackle, that would compare with
the best. There was no Mike Mikulak at fullback, no Leighton
Gee for those stirring cutbacks off tackle, nor no Johnny Kitz
I miller, however, so for the first time in many years an Oregon
team finished in the second division.
It is a very different story now. The bottom was reached,
I and with a lineup sprinkled by ambitious sophomore talent, the
Wehfoot coaching staff is starting a New Deal this fall—a
period of reconstruction. Mistakes will be made—sophomore
teams always do—and games will be lost, but the Ducks are
certain to pull some surprises. A “darkhorse team” has all of
the breaks in psychology.
Most of the wise hoys are picking Washington's 1936 Rose
Bowl team and Stub Allison’s California Golden Bears as poten
tial coast conference champions. They have the material and
on that basis rate it. Placed upon the pillar for first division
honors are also Howard Jones’ rejuvenated Trojans from USC,
and Tiny Thornhill’s laughing Stanford boys.

That leaves Oregon. Babe Ilollingberrv\s always-tough. but
Goddarless Washington Staters, Lon Stiner's merry razzle
dazzle Oregon Staters, and the Bruins of I'C’LA out in the cold.
Those four teams aren't expected to produce much under exist
ing conditions, but are a cinch to make those favored lads
sweat this fall.
