Rather silly these football feuds
between different sections of the
country. We have ’em between
Pcdunk of the Southeast, and
Yarvard of the North, between
conferences of rival sections, or
the plain East and West.
For instance, the Big Ten con
ference of Michigan, Minnesota,
etc., have bragged for years of
playing tougher hall than the coast
conferences. This is very possible,
of course, for they have played or
ganized ball longer, hut national
championship ratings by Professor
Frank Dickinson, of Illinois uni
versity since 1924, give Big Ten
teams but four titles to three for
the Coast conference.
It’s a time-worn scrap between
teams of California and the North
west. Nothing serious, Imt still
those biting words of sarcasm.
From southern football powers
early this fall came threats of com
pletely dominating the conference.
At present they seem to be making

Passes Bring Scores
Jay Graybeal, who has scored
on a pass against every confer
ence opponent that Oregon has run
up against, took part in practice
yesterday afternoon for the first
time this week.
The return of Graybeal gives
the Smith to Graybeal pass com
bination, which has been the one
which clicked in all these games,
a chance to dope out some more
poison for Oregon State.
At that, it is doubtful if the
Pendleton Jackrabbit needs very
much help doping out plays. He is
credited with originating the two
Oregon pass plays which took the
Webfoots to the Trojan 312-yard
line. On the second of the two
plays, Jay took a lateral from Ar
leigh Bentley which was good for
30 yards.

Jovial Chuck Taylor, the hoop game’s professional showman and

three sensitive fingers, looked intently at the whirling sphere, and
declared that the popularity of the game is increasing with leaps and
bounds all over the country, not overlooking, of course, the west coast

Talking rapidly while donning
his sweat-shirt and black trousers
prior to his exhibition on McArthur
court Tuesday night, the genial big
fellow who can do marvels with a
basketball, let it be known, in be
tween handshakes with admiring
friends, that the possibilities of the
maple court game for both players
and spectators are just beginning
to be realized.
Gaining Foothold
“Basketball has been just like
any new thing in that it takes time
for it to gain a foothold. All the
high schools are building fine
gymnasiums now, and the young
boys are playing the game. That
means increased popularity and
better play, for when, and only
when, the kids start playing will a
sport establish itself," he comment
Answering the question, “Are
the west coast teams on a par with
those of the east and middle
west?" he said, “Yes, I think so.
You remember a couple of years
ago when the University of Wash
ington went to New York for the
Olympic tryouts. The Huskies
were a fine club and the best of
the college teams.’’
Travels Plenty
Mr. Taylor, who probably travels
more basketball miles than any
other man in the United States
feels that the elimination of the
center jump adds little to the game
of basketball itself.
"It doesn’t mean a thing,” was
his answer to the query of whether
the new ruling ousting the center
tip sped up the play.

here for the first time two years
ago and exhibited basketball tech

An ex-professional star, having

Oregon State’s Orange Babes will
clash with the University of Ore
gon frosh on Bell field’s new turf
here Friday night at 8 o’clock.
“Wild Bill” McKalip, freshman
head coach, concentrated on block
ing assignments in the early drills
this week before turning to the
offensive attack which includes a
speedy running attack plus a po
tentially effective passing game.
Babes Are Winless
Thus far in their campaigning,
the Beaver yearlings have yet to
post their first victory. Following
the defeat at the hands of the
Oregon babes, Oregon Normal held
the Rooks to a 7-7 tie.
Heading the Orange starting
group will be Kenny “Rowdy”
Dow, ace ball packer and tosser
from Great Falls, Mont., and his
fellow Montanan, Joe Tomich, from
Butte. Dow plays fullback while
Tomich takes care of quarterback
duties. Jake Hergert, ex-Jefferson
high of Portland star, probably
will start at right halfback with
Dick Mehlhof, Sutton, Neb., left
Portlanders Star
Outstanding among the Orange
rook linemen are Leonard Younce,
husky ex-Roosevelt high of Port
land, and Ray Wolf, former Jef
ferson star. Younce plays right
tackle and does the team’s punting.
Other probable starters with this
pair include Eldred Swendall and
Gordon Ferris, ends; Monty Tuck
er, center; Vic Sears, left tackle;
and Jack Oglesby, left guard.
General admission tickets for the
classic are 75 cents for adults and
40 cents for high school students
and children.

1 The “One Man Gang,” as he was
often called, is a rugged and bur
ly, rough-going sort of player. A
super line-plunger, and equally
adept at packing the mail, and lo!
behold those who get in his way,
for when he hits them they stay
put. He has a very valuable
knack of plowing through the line
with a bent over locomotive power
style, it is similar to that of the
famed Nebraskan, George Sauer.
In all the games thus far “Stin
ky” has been right in the thick of
play. From all indications he will
probably start against the Rooks
this Friday. However, in fairness
to Chet Haliski who has shared
the fullback post with “Stinky” we
might say that both are evenly
rated. Haliski has been one of the
big guns in all the games to date
but will be out due to a side in
jury. So the burden will fall on
the shoulders of “Our One Man
