The last mile!
We’ll call It that, for this is the
last Emerald of fall term, and con
sequently the final Duck Tracks.
John l’ink, the Astoria pen-push
er, who was an Ideal pard in put
ting out the sports sheet last
spring, is going to assume the task
for winter term. John is a fine
and interesting writer, and you’ll
just love to reail his luscious col
umn over the morning broth.
As far as this scribe is concerned,
it has been a lot of fun dishing out
tripe a la Duck Tracks, no foolin’.
I’ll take this opportunity to catch
up on a little sleep and probably be
back on the rag for spring1 term.
John, I wish you the best.

Announcing, the 1937 collegiate .sports writers’ all-America loot
Magazines, players, and fans alike are picking all-something teams
this season, but we have here a different one, picked by the sports
editors of 83 colleges and universities in 40 states and the District of
Columbia. It's a worthy poll, too, for last year’s eleven agreed, with
but one exception, with the all-America board of football's choices.
And what a team it is. There’s a backfield paced by three choices
oi most teams, v;unt i<ranK (xaie),
Marshall Goldberg (Pittsburgh),
and Byron White (Colorado), and
also Joe Kilgrow (Alabama).
Frank is the East’s master foot
baller, a triple threat, and perfect
team leader. Whizzer White is the
Phi Beta Kappa, student prexy,
and all-around man, who made it
despite playing on a smaller team.
Three Pittsburgh players rated
the team, while California had
none. Alabama’s Rose Bowl choice
placed two men at the coveted po
sitions. Besides Goldberg in the
backfield, Pittsburgh placed Bill
Daddio at end and Tony Matisi at
tackle. Alabama’s pair were Kil
grow in the backfield and Leroy
Monsky at a guard post.
Lack of sufficient ballots from
the Coast accounts for the “all
eastern” first team. California
placed five men on the next two
combinations, however. On the sec
ond team were Guard Stockton,
Center Herwig, and Halfback Bot
tari. On the third were Backs
Chapman and Meek.
Writers from four Coast confer- I
ence schools participated in the
poll, which was conducted by Bob
Kunkel, University of North Da
kota. Oregon, California, Washing
ton, and UCLA were represented,
besides a group of western inde
pendents. Joe Gray, Oregon State’s
Ghost, rated no better than the i
eighth team. Oregon’s four men,
Hank Nilsen, Jay Graybeal, Joe
Huston, and Tony Amato were
limited to "honorable mention" or
"nominations” for such.

Sixth Year Under Callison j
With 4 Victories. 6 Losses l
By BILL NORENE
Oregon’s Ducks returned from Tucson, Arizona early Tuesday E
morning, finishing a mediocre season with a record of six games lost }j
and four won. £
While Oregon's record is not much to brag about, the Webfoots _
won two conference games, two more than last season, beating Stan
ford, second in conference standings, and Washington State.
In the nrst game or the season,
with UCLA, Oregon went out and
got two touchdowns, but the West
wood Bruins with Kenny Washing
ton, brilliant negro half, in top
form doubled Oregon’s best efforts
and won 27 to 14.
The Duck gridders upset the
dope the next week in beating
Stanford, 7 to 6. Graybeal took
another pass from Smith, this
time in the second quarter, to score
Oregon’s opening touchdown. Hus
ton kicked the winning point on
Stanford scored late in the sec
ond half, but Hank Nilsen broke
through to block their tif/ for
point, giving Oregon the game.
The Webfoots won their second
game of the season the next week
against Gonzaga, 40 to 0, with the
whole Oregon squad participating
in the worst scrimmage ever hand
ed Gonzaga by an Oregon team.
Two one-man teams handed the
Lemon and Yellow their next two
defeats with Amblin’ A m b y
Schindler and Joe Gray, the Gal
loping Ghost leading their teams
to 34 to 14 and 14 to 0 victories
After a two weeks’ rest Oregon
went up to Portland and defeated
Babe Hollingbery’s Cougars 10
Graybeal Does It
It was Graybeal again who was
responsible for Oregon’s victory
The Pendleton Jackrabbit scored
on an off-tackle slant from about
the 16-yard line. Later in the game
Jimmy Nicholson, Salem speed
burner, kicked a field goal to put
the game on ice.
Against the conference champs
next week, the Ducks showed
rather poorly. California's Golden
Bears were at the peak of their
power, running over the Webfoots
26 to 0.
Washington's Huskies furnished
the final conference opposition for
the Ducks the next Saturday, beat
ing Callisons’ men, 14 to 0.
Two King’s Xers
Oregon's last two games were
against non-conference opposition.

Upset Phi Delt Team
In Final Tilt; ATOs
Grab B Crown
A scrappy, heads-up bunch of
boys from Sigma Phi Epsilon
tipped over the dope bucket last
Monday night by upsetting the
highly-touted Phi Delt volleyball ^
squad, 15-8, 15-11 to win the in- ||
tramural A league championship.
The Sig Eps outclassed the barn
boys in every department of the
game to win handily. Excellent
work in setting up plays, and a .
spiking attack, which had every- ,
body guessing, were outstanding
features of the games.
The Phi Delts, defending champs,
started out on even terms in each
game for the first few points, but
collapsed when they were unable
to handle the kill shots offered by
the inspired Sig Ep gang. Cliff
Morris and George Jackson con
tributed most of the trouble for the
Sig Eps, while Ken Shipley and Ed
