Square-cut Hugo Bc/.dek, who,
history tells us coached football,
basketball, and baseball at Oregon
from 1913
through 1917, inf
a mentor of the >
old school, hut
according to re
ports frcin the
Kast is far from
being a hard- ,
boiled Spears.
1-aot is, no s mmmmmMi
v e r y different. Hugo Bezdek
Hugo, now in his 53rd year, advo
eates a system of his own, allow
ing the players a little self-govern
ment. On his Cleveland Ram pro
fessional club, Be/.dek appointed a
five-man committee which acts on
such matters as training rules,
equipment, and even a little social
life. He retains a veto power, hut
uses it only on rare occasions.

Says Frank Hugo Bezdek about
his self-control system, “The play
ers feel a sense of community re
sponsibility. They feel that it’s
their own club, rather than the
manager's or the owner’s. It’s
working for me. We get more
from the players.”
Which brings us right back to
the Pacific coast for observation of
the same tentionless idea, but in a
different form. Stanford’s Coach
Tiny Thornhill believes in a little
freedom for his Indians, and con
seciuently they call Stanford the
laughingest club in the United
Hugo Bezdek has been in ath
letics about long enough to be an
authority on how to keep football
players happy. They say he’s the
only man living to pilot both ma
jor league baseball and football
teams. During 1917, 1918, and
1919, just after leaving Oregon, he
piloted Pittsburgh’s Pirates of the
National baseball league.
He contributed such stratagems
as the screened pass and spinner
play to football. But why go on.
Bezdek’s accomplishments are
many. I’iloting Oregon’s Webfoots
of 1916 to the Rose Bowl was his
biggest feat as far as Eugene cit
izens are concerned.
Hollis Huntington, former Salem
high coach, now owner of the
Utan’s Shop in Salem, has a lot to
say about those days. Huntington
was a fullback on the Oregon elev
en which whipped Pennsylvania
State, 14 to 0, at Pasadena on New
Year’s Day, 1917. Not only that,
he set an indiv idual record of yard
age piled up which stands today.
Stanford's Horse Reynolds went
down in Ripley’s not long ago for
playing every minute of two Rose
Bowl games. They overlooked
lloliis Huntington, for he did it in
three games, AND with two dif
ferent teams. Told me so himself.
As previously mentioned, (lie Penn
State game was number one. He
then switched to the l'. S. Marines
for a 1918 Pasadena clash, and .n
1920 was in there for 60 minutes
when Oregon lost to Harvard, 7
to 6.
Frosh Battle Washington
Babes Tomorrow Night
In Multnomah Stadium
Optimist John Warren Visualizes Defeat for
Webfoot Yearlings in Annual Game for
Northwest Championship
In what appears to give all signs
of being the roughest, toughest
fracas of the 1937 frosh grid ses
sion, the Ducklings will battle the
Washington yearlings for the
mythical Northwest championship
tomorrow night at Portland.
Although “Honest John" War
ren, Oregon’s champ optimist,
doesn't give the frosh an outside
chance to cop the title, the dope
sheet calls for a fast, close con
Show Improvement
With a greater scoring punch
than last year’s aggregation which
dropped the Babes, 13-7, at Seat
tle, the Ducklings should put up a
stiff battle from the first install
ment to the last. In addition to
this, Warren's proteges have shown
considerable improvement in block
ing and tackling during the last
two weeks.
Both squads are undisputed mas
ters of their territory. The frosh
have trounced the rooks in two
straight mixups, 19-12 and 20-7.
The miniature Huskies recently
slapped Bellingham normal which
had previously smacked Washing
ton State's freshman eleven.
The Irony of It
The Irony of gridiron history
finds three former Seattle all-stars
shining for Oregon, while three ex
Portland flashes occupy spots on
the Babes' first string.
Duke Hankinson, high-scoring
left half, Bill Hawke, and Marshall
Stenstrom, all of Seattle, are lead
ing backs on Warren’s squad.
Tackles Bob McKeown, Franklin,
and Jack Coonan and Ted Dor
man, Grant quarterback, former
members of Portland’s all-star ros
ter are probable starters for Wash
Warren’s charges have tallied 66
points against 25 for their oppon
ents so far this season. Hankinson
leads the Ducklings with 16 mark
Signal Practice
The frosh grid mentor sent his
lads through a passing and signal
practice session last night. He will
terminate the pre-game warmup
with a short meeting under the
lamps at Hayward field tonight.
Whistle time will probably find
Chet Haliski at quarterback, Leon
ard Isberg at left half, and Sten
strom and Hawke at fullback and
right half, respectively, Don Ma
bee, Del Dungey, Gene Schultz,
Neil Stackhouse, and Gordon Bish
op will probably see service in the
back fie Id.
Oregon’s front rank is scheduled
to line up the same as usual, with
Bob Hendershott, left end; Bob
Creager, left tackle; Worthy Blais
dell, left guard; A1 Samuelson, cen
ter; Barney Reams, right guard;
Jim Stuart, right tackle; Norm
Conaway, right end.

Renewal of Play
Oct. 27. Orange football players
are preparing to meet another ma
major Pacific coast conference con
tender, Stanford university, next
on the Beaver slate, Saturday af
ternoon at Palo Alto.
Victorious over the University
of Oregon, 14 to 0, last week, the
highly touted scoring machine
which failed in earlier starts now
appears to be hitting its intended
stride, and, according to Coach
Lon Stiner, probably will make
things tough for all the major
clubs left on the season slate.
Gray to I’aee Orange
As in previous battles, red
headed Joe Gray, rated the out
standing all-American backfield
candidate in the Northv ,t, again
will be expected to pace the Bea
vers’ offensive attack with his sen
sational passing arm and great
ball-packing against the Indians.
The pending fray will be the 12th
between the two teams, but the
Orangemen have yet to emerge the
Practice sessions in the Orange
camp this week indicated Coach
Stiner probably will take to the
air in an effort to annex the first
victory in history from Stanford.
The brilliant Gray paced his mates
through lengthy aerial drills early
this week, hitting his targets con
Another encouraging factor in
recent Beaver gridiron successes
has been the surprising strength
of the line, believes Coach Stiner.
The Beaver front wall was believed1
to be one of the weak links in the
potentially strong team at the out
set of the 1937 team.

Fred Rasor, Beaver
Fencing Champion,
Now Oregon Studen t
Revival of Interest in Foils Competition On
Campus Is Probable; Boushey Offers His
Support to New Organization
Oregon has a champion swordsman among her students this year,
whose coming may help to create interest in fencing on the campus.
He is Fred Rasor, junior in economics and a transfer from Oregon
State. Rasor hold the OSC intramural all-college fencing champion
Although Oregon had a mixed
fencing club last year of about
fifteen members, a revival of inter
est in the organization will require
new leadership this year, accord
ing to Earl Boushey, physical edu
cation professor. Mr. Boushey act
ed as adviser of the club last year.
Wants to Build
Last year’s president and lead
er, Del Robinson, is not in school
this fall, so his place may be filled
by Rasor. Rasor stated that he
was interested in re-forming a
fencing club, and possibly a fencing
Mr. Boushey said he would back
Rasor or any other student instru
mental in reviving interest in fenc
A member of last year’s fencing
group, Howard Percy, also offered
his support to a possible leader,
find said he believes fencing is “the
coming thing.’’
Rasor was number two man on
the three-man Oregon State fenc
ing team last year. The Beaver
squad made an enviable record,
swamping Reed college, 9-0, in each
of two matches, beating Oregon's
fencing club team once by the same
score, and beating University of
Washington 7-2.
The Washington crew went to
California later to place second in
the Pacific coast fencing champ
ionship. The Beaver team was un
able to make the trip south.
According to Rasor, fencing will
be classed as a minor sport at
Oregon State this year, so popular
is it becoming.
An Honor Student
Rasor was an honor student at
Oregon State, and is here on a
scholarship. He is a member of
Campbell Co-op. Fencing, he says,
is largely a matter of practice. He
likes foil fencing better than any
other. Rasof started fencing two
years ago at the Multnomah Ath
letic club in Portland, and con
tinued his practice at Oregon State
when he enrolled there.
The second of the Portland trio
playing on the frosh squad this
year is Chet Haliski, the bomber
from Roosevelt high. The big,
husky, broad-shouldered lad is
playing the tough role of blocking
However, he has been on the sick
shelf for the past week with a back
injury sustained in the SONS fray
two weeks ago, and it is doubtful as
to whether he will be able to play
this Friday against the Washing
ton Babes when they tangle at
Multnomah stadium in Portland.
Chet weighs in at 193, and meas
ures 6 feet 1 inch tall. Last fall
he was honored on the Portland
newspapers' annual all-star selec
tions, at the fullback post.
When not playing football, Chet
starred on the Roosevelt baseball
nine, and was a spearhead in the
Teddy hitting attack.
His popularity was widespread
out in the St. John’s district of
Portland from whence comes the
Gray Ghost of Oregon State, Joe
Gray. Chet's football talent doesn’t
particularly fall in line with that
of Gray’s, but is of the rugged line
plunging variety. A lot is expect
ed of Chet, and he will no doubt
live up to all the expectations
based upon his performances thus

Students Steve Anderson, Don

The practice session which
amounted to little more than a
game of touch tackle, lasted until
after dark, with the lights being
turned on for the latter part of
the session.
Reserves Play
On one team Coach Callison
started Rod Speetzen and John

When Lenard K. “Bud” Robert
son stepped onto the turf of the
huge (some say immense) Mem
orial coliseum in Los Angeles to
play a little football with the big
boys from California, he felt some
what like you and I would feel if
we were suddenly and unceremon
iously dumped into the middle of
the Sahara desert.
The six-foot Oregon end looked
up at the vast expanse of seats and
probably for the first time in his
life felt a little lost. The big bowl
^eats 105,000 people.
At any rate he was impressed by
the size of the “toy box.” “It looks
bigger than all outdoors,” Robert
son grinned.
However, the 22-year-old, 180
pounder didn’t agree with the
theory that playing in the coliseum
took so much out of the players.
“We played in pretty good weather
conditions this year. It was us
ually cool enough.”
A one-year letterman from Al
bany, Robertson didn’t exactly dis
like the idea of drawing a bye this
weekend. “These two weeks should
give the fellows who have been
banged up all season a chance to
recover from their injuries,” he
Asked whether California's de
cisive defeat of Southern California
surprised him. the well-built Kappa
Sigma boy with the “Hitler” hair
cut replied in the negative.
“I had that on§ all doped out,”
Bud modestly averred. “What’s
more I think Stanford will beat
OSC by a touchdown Saturday.”
B league volleyball fired its open
ing shots tonight, with the Comets
and the Betas looming as the best
of the twelve teams who exhibited
their wares.
The Comets looked in mid-season
form as they trounced a sadly out
classed team from the Delta Tau
Delta by a 15-4, 15-3 score. The
Betas meanwhile trounced the
team from Sherry Ross hall by a
score of 15 to 5, and 15 to 8.
Chi Psis Rally
In the most unusual game played
to date in intramural volleyball,
the Chi Psis came back after los
ing the first game 15 to 6, to,
trounce the Fijis, 15-2, 15-4 in th<?
remaining two games.
Gamma hall and Sigma Chi both
won close matches, with the Gam
ma hall team winning from SPE,
15-13, 9-15, 15-10, while the Sigma
Chis were winning, 14-15, 15-10,
15-6 from the Phi Psi team.
