Forty times Oregon and Oregon
State football teams have flashed
on battle-worn gridirons. Just 23
times the Webfoots returned to
their dressing rooms in a happy
mood. Only ten times have Oregon
State teams turned the tide. That
is all in the past now.
Today they meet again. It isn't
.just wins and losses to those teams,
no, not ail tradition. To Frink
Callison’s and Eon Stiner’s boys
the whole season hinges upon
which end zone the pigskin is
planted in the most times this af
For weeks the athletes set their
hearts on the contest, they care not
if a few games are lost here and
there, but to erown their season
with success means to win the an
nual “civil war” tilt. One club may
have had more success during the
season, may be an overwhelming
favorite in betting, but to the ath
letes and coaches it means only
eleven men against eleven men.
Today, it so happens, Oregon and
Oregon State meet on Hayward
field’s new $10,000 turf with about
even odds. Oregon has defeated
Stanford, and lost to UCLA and
Southern California. Oregon State
has won over Washington, tied
UCLA, and lost to California. It
would mean the same if neither
had won a game.
What does the future hold ? Will
Joe Gray pass the Webfoots crazy,
and big Elmer Kolberg rip our line
to shreds, or will Jay Graybeal and
Bob Smith team for enough touch
downs to turn the trick? Some
where between fifteen and twenty
thousand people are going to see
for themselves this afternoon. They
do every year. The only reason
ably safe bet you could make about
it is that Oregon and Oregon State
won’t fight to a scoreless deadlock.
Joe Gray threw passes all over
the field in Oregon State’s tremen
dous upset of Washington, and
they called him the coast’s best for
that specialty. The ghost was sty
mied by rain against UCLA last
Saturday, but fooled ’em by flash
ing some real hip-swinging, ball
packing. He was then called an
all-coast player by experts who
said Joe was most of Oregon

Maybe not the triple-threat Gray
iN, Oregon haw a mite from the sage
regions of eastern Oregon named
Jerry Graybeal, who is possibly
more dangerous when it comes to
point-malting. Jaekrahbit Jay has
scored on every team in the confer
ence so far, and is one reason why
some “proggies” pick the Wchfoots
to win. Of course you have to fig
ure one IJoi> Smith who flips left
handed, and is dangerous any time
he handies the hall.
Oregon State's forward wall has
chalked up a wee better defensive
record than Gene Shield's Duck
line, but to offset all advantage
there, Oregon rates tops in touch
downs. In huckficld reserves, the
Wchfoots have a definite advan
tage. But if Elmer Kulberg returns
to the form he showed against
Nebraska last fall, tills may be
IJne-play won’t settle the issue,
not by far, but a lot depends upon
which forward wall gets the jump
and holds it. A Beaver victory will
unquestionably result if Oregon's
linemen are outchurged badly. Al
lowing them an even break, Ore
gon’s superior manpower in hack
field reserves might settle it.
Push ’em down Tony Amato,
Duck captain, who returned to ac
tion against USC, is raring for
action as is Bill Rach, sopjiomore
fullback from Seattle, who has
been out this season with a bad
leg. Add to that the big improve

more passer, and running threat,

Meeting Results in Organization for Boxers
And Wrestlers; Plans Are Made for Teams
To Represent Oregon
By PETE IGOE
Twenty-three men met with Anse Cornell, graduate manager, and
; Dr. R. W. Leighton, dean of the school of physical education, Tuesday
; night, and organized the University of Oregon Mitt and Mat club. The
! Mitt and Mat club will represent the Webfoots as an organization
which will sponsor boxing and wrestling.
Much interest has been shown -
recently by several boys who de- [
sired to make boxing and wrestling I
minor sports. They took their case J
to Dr. Leighton, who immediately j
took the matter before the athletic
Not in Budget
The meeting was called Tuesday
for the purpose of letting Anse
Cornell talk the matter over with
all the boys interested and to make
some sort of an adjustment. Mr.
Cornel! stated that at the present
time the budget adopted by the
athletic board could not possibly
meet the expense of new sports. He
said, however, that the University
was impressed by the interest
shown, and would cooperate to
the fullest extent.
After the situation was ex
plained, and the University's stand
on the matter made clear, the boys
felt that some closely knit organi
crowded winter term schedule and
will be slated to replace intra
mural touch football which was
ruled out by the intramural execu
tive board this year.

The A league championship will
gain for the winning team a total

The Webfoot Mitt and Matters
plan to schedule matches with Ore
gon State, the Multnomah club of
Portland, Linfield perhaps, and
several athletic clubs sprinkled
throughout the state.
Several outstanding boxers and
wrestlers will perform on the Web
foot team. The heavyweight box
ers that lead the list are Jim Krei
ger and Russ Inskeep. Kreiger has
fought 18 fights as a Seattle ama
teur and only lost one. Inskeep was
two years champion of the Big
Nine league in Portland.
In the 165-pound class “Smoky”
Whitfield is the mainstay. “Smoky”
has had perhaps more experience
than any other boxer on the squad.
He was also a finalist in a Chicago
amateur tournament. Gale Ferris
and Jack Fruit are other leaders
in this division. Fruit was an out
standing fighter for the Multno
mah club of Portland.
Willie Williams, wrestling man
ager, also has much promising ma
terial. Williams himself is a heavy
weight and has been an outstand
ing wrestler at the Multnomah
club. Mike Patapoff. at 180, was a
finalist in the state amateur tour
nament. In the lighter division,
Clarence Francis dominates the
pack. For two years he has been
champion at Oregon, and for three
years in the Big Nine league.
A turnout of about 55 is ex
pected. With this impressive ar
ray of talent Oregon should take a
back seat to none of the schools

Ducks Have Won 23,
Orangemen 10 in 40
Years of Play
The University of Oregon Web
foots will be trying for their 24th
victory in 40 years of competition
with Oregon State College today
when they face the Beavers from
Corvallis on Hayward field in the
feature of the annual homecoming
Against the Duck's 23 wins, the
Orangemen have been able to post
only 10 marks on the debit side of
the pay-off ledger. The remaining
seven times the Ducks have met
the Beavers have resulted in ties,
five of them scoreless.
Last Year>#18 to 0
Last year at Corvallis, the Gray
Ghost, Joe Gray, unlimbered his
respected right arm and passed
the Orange-jerseyed boys to a
sparkling 18-0 decision over Prink
Callison's men led by Del Bjork.
That Orange triumph broke a
string of Oregon victories which
dated back to 1932 when the lemon
and green clad warriors of Ore
gon bounced the boys from the
"farm” in Callison's debut as head
man of the Webfoot forces.
Caliison Magic Works
The Caliison magic worked a
spell over Lon Stiner's Orange cre
ations for the next three years, the
Ducks winning. 13-3, in Portland
in 1933 when Mighty Mike Miku
lak, Leighton Gee, Mark Temple,
Bob Parke, Bree Cuppoletti, Ber
nie Hughes, Butch Morse, and the
rest of the co-champions of the
conference smashed the Ironmen
in a dazzling display of power,
9-6 in 1934, and 13-0 in 1935.
Today's clash is called an even
money by sports experts, for al
though the Beavers have Joe Gray
again and a strong forward wall,
the Ducks have Jay Graybeal and
a scoring attack that- hasn't been
squelched this year.
The two schools began football
relations way back in 1894, with
OSC (then OACl taking the init
ial grid tilt, 18-0.
Oregon holds almost a two-to
one edge in total scoring in the
40-year period, totaling 370 points
while the best the Staters could do
was to chalk up 208 markers.
On Home Lot
Amato and Kolberg
Will Captain Rival
(Continued from page one)
Jimmy Nicholson, the Salem
speedboy, has also done his share
of the Webfoot ball carrying. An
other of Callison’s quarterbacks is
Denny Donovan, one of the best
pass catchers on the squad. Denny
has seen action in only a few of
the games because of an early sea
son knee injury.
Beavers Back Gray
On the other hand, Oregon
state’s ball carrying policies ax*
built almost entirely around one
man, Joe "The Gray Ghost Gray.
The 186 pounder is a hard runner,
both inside and outside the tackles.
In addition to this his short passes
are uncannily accurate, and his
long passes are almost as good.
In addition to Gray, the Beavers
have Elmer Kolberg at fullback.
Elmer is one of the best defensive
backs in the business, and a plenty
good line buster.
Stater Dine Heavy
When it comes to the line, Ore
gon State definitely has the advan
tage. The starting Beaver forward
wall is expected to outweigh the
Webfoots 10 pounds to the man.
Except for the California game,
which the Bears won 24 to 6, only
17 points have been scored on this
line. Idaho, a nonconference team
defeated the Orangemen 7 to 6.
UCLA was tied 7 to 7, while Wash
ington’s Huskies were defeated in
the last quarter 6 to 3.
At ends Coach Stiner indicated
that he would start Don Coons and
Joe Wendlick. Frank Nihil and
Leon Sterling will start at the
tackles; Prescott Hutchins and
Frank Ramsey, who will be the
biggest man on the field at 227 at
the guard posts, and Jim Orr.
Duncan Punts for OSC
In the backfield will be Bill Dun
can, quarterback, who handles the
punting assignment for the Beav
ers; Joe Gray and Jay Mercer, the
target for many of Gray’s passes,
at halfbacks; and of course Elmer
' Kolberg at fullback.
Against the ponderous Beaver
forward wall Coach Callison is ex
pected to start “radically the same
line which has opened for the
Ducks in their previous games.
Bud Robertson, fully recovered
from his Stanford game injury, and
John Yerby will start at ends; Big
Bill Foskett and Bill Estes are slat
ed to start at the tackles, and
Captain Tony Amato and Joe Hus
ton will be holding down the guard
I positions at the kickoff. At center,
Vernon Moore has been given the
; nod by Coach Callison.
Nilsen Starts at Quarter
In the backfield Callison has
selected Hank Nilsen to start at
the all important quarterback post
i with Dale Lasselle and Steve An
! derson at halfbacks, and Paul
Rowe at fullback.
This leaves “Jackrabbit Jay" and
his running mate, Bob Smith, in
; reserve in case Coach Callison de
cides that the boys need a hypo
in which case the touchdown twins
can be rushed into the game.
