Whisper, whisper, whisper! Why
all the silence about the coast con
ference's proposed new high com
missioner : or
maybe the idea
has fallen
Back in July
Pacific coast
conference direc
tors met, and out
came 1938 sched
ules along with
the anno unce
Griffiths ment that a now
.$20,000 commissioner of confer
ence football was in the offing. Of
course all details were shushed
away until after the December
meeting of said committee.
The position will apparently be
similar to that held by Major Grif
fiths of the Big Ten. Said com
missioner, who shouldn’t be too
popular with all coaches is expect
ed to investigate the incomes of
various college athletes. An inter
esting job to say the least.
* * *
One rumor says that Mr. Com
missioner ..will ..draw his . 20,000
bucks from Rose Bowl receipts.
Another report, which comes in
directly from Hugh C. Willette,
conference proxy, informs us that
each of the eight full members of
the ..conference ..will ..contribute
$2500 to the cause, and the king’s-x
members, Idaho and Montana, are
to be held for $1250.
According to Stanford's Tiny
Thornhill, who kept rather quiet
about the matter, conference
coaches have very little to say
about it. Probably they could all
team up to squelch the idea, but
not any two or three. Herb Dana,
former conference referee, who
now assigns officials to different
games, gets a lot of criticism ev
ery season, but it looks as though
the $20,000 a year commissioner,
whoever is chosen, will inherit a
thankless job.
Some schools will naturally re
sent having some one snoop into
their athletic budgets, to find out
hqw A. 'Ijmck Wisnisky or left
guard Blo£i\ is getting along. Not
the faintest hint has been made to
date about logical choices for the
"dream job." In December we’ll
probably know all about it.

Lineup Strengthens
Duckling Team
With ace Quarterback Chet Ha
liski positively in the lineup, the
Duckling’s prospects for a win
over Washington at Portland Fri
day night are brightened visibly.
Although Haliski was practic
ing without shoulder pads last
night, Coach Warren stated that
! he would don his grid togs against
the Babes. Keeping Chet company
on the casualty list, Roy Bishop
is suffering from a torn muscle in
his thigh.
Fundamentals Improve
Blocking and tackling have
greatly improved on the frosh
squad as shown by the sound
smacking handed the rooks last
Friday night. However, “Honest
John’’ has continued to pound
these principles into the lads in
the last two nights of practice.
From all reports, the Washing
ton yearlings have a plenty tough
eleven. Rudy Mucha and Frank
Monkus head an entire backfield
combination moved bag and bag
gage from Chicago. Ted Dorman,
formerly of Grant high school,
Portland, and Dean McAdams
Caldwell, Idaho, complete the first
string quartet.
Two Portlanders
In addition to Dorman, two oth
[ er former Portland all-stars, Bob
McKeown, Franklin, and Jack
| Coonan, Grant, tackles, share
starting berths.
After years of competition, the
two squads clash for the first time
in Portland. With the mythical
northwest title at stake, the fracas
should provide a thrilling bit of en
tertainment. Warren's .frosh took
the Babes over the wire, 13-7, in
Seattle last season to .cinch the
coveted laurel.

Fading Away Rapidly
PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 26.
(Special) Matty Mathews, new'
University of Portland coach, is
afraid that Elwyn (Moose) Dun

Dunstan was one of the biggest
footballers on the coast last year
at 262 pounds. Now he’s down to a

Coast conference football fans took a backward glance today at
the damage done their favorites over the weekend, and most of them
came through with the conclusion that the Golden Bears of California
are headed for the green field and big purse of the Pasadena Rose
The USC Trojans, picked by experts to give the Bears their acid
test, proved just another breeze, as the men of Stub Allison rolled up
a total of 118 yards net gam in trouncing the Trojans, 20 to 6. The
six points tne trojans cna score
came in the second half after the
Bear second string- had entered
the fray, but as long as the regu
lars were in, USC was just like
any other opponent to the lads.
Still Four Hurdles
Still in the path of the Bear’s
Hose Bowl parade remain the
UCLA Bruins, the Washington
Huskies, the Oregon Wcbfoots, and
the Stanford Indians. All of these
teams have been defeated at least
once, and all with the exception of
Stanford have been beaten twice.
Washington State college re
tained her mathematical chance at
the conference title when she sur
prised 20.000 fans in copping a 3
to 0 victory from UCLA. The Cou
gars got a break late in the third
quarter when Joe Sienko recov
ered a fumble on the Bruin 8-yard
line, and after three line plays hail
failed to put the ball over, kicked
a perfect placement from the 2
yard line.
Indians Win
Stanford's redshirted Indians
kept their chances intact Satur
day while scoring- a hair-raising
13-7 victory over Jimmy Phelan's
midfield wonders from,Seattle. The
Indians only gained eight yards
from scrimmage during the en
counter but took advantage of ev
ery break, while the Huskies piled
up useless yardage in the middle
of the field.
Joe Gray, Oregon State College
star halfback, threw a wet blan
ket on Oregon's homecoming cele
bration Saturday by passing and
running his team to a 14 to 0 vic
tory over a stubborn Oregon elev
en. The Beavers were repulsed six
times within the 10-yard line, but
with only six minutes of play left,'
they scored two quick touchdowns.

Bentley Loses Teeth
Arleigh Bentley spent the day in
a dentist’s office. He lost several
teeth in one of the Webfoots’ heroic
goal-line stands.
Dale Lasselle was not out last
evening, but Captain Tony Amato
was, although he was not in suit.
Both suffered knee injuries in the
Beaver brawl.
Coach Callison also had his boys
throwing a few passes, with Steve
Anderson on the pitching end of
the tosses. It was expected that
the aerial offensive would receive
some attention this week, because
the Duck overhead attack failed to
produce points for the first time
this season.
Webfoot passers, Bob Smith in
particular, were rushed so fast and
hard by the State line, that they
had a tough time getting passes

PORTLAND, Oct. 26.—U. of O
boosters should find some comfort
for Saturday's defeat in the follow
ing: In the first game OSC ever
played at Corvallis, November
1893, they won 62-0 over Albany :
college, according to a news story
in the Corvallis Gazette of Novem
ber 17, 1893, which was dug up
recently by a field representative
of the Historical Records survey, a
WPA project.
The scoring was different in
those days, and OSC had to make
13 touchdowns to pile up their
score. A touchdown was good for
only 4 points, but a goal kick was
worth 2 points.
There was no Gray on the team
then, but it was still too much for
Albany. At the beginning of the
second half, three Albany players
