This man Tex Oliver, the keen
strategian from Arizona who
picked University of Oregon foot
ball out of the. doldrums, is near
ing the first anniversary of the
big preview of the “Oliver Twist"
which his Webfoots staged last
spring for .Junior Weekend fol
lowers. And this time he’s profiting
Last spring it was the Oregon
team (which had been condition
ing all spring) against a crew of
all-stars and pick-ups who hadn’t
been caring much about how far
they could run without calling
quits. The all-stars, Butch Morse
and company, made things pretty
interesting for about a quarter
against Tex's boys who were in
the pink of condition, but after
that it was a problem to find
stretcher bearers to carry ’em off
the field. The pace was too killing.
For Saturday's second Oliver
preview there'll be an all-star team
on hand to scrimmage the varsity,
but that's just where Tex’s fore
sight enters the picture. He’s only
going to use the all-stars as long
as they can hold out and will send
Webfoots against Webfoots for the
rest of the time. Then, too, the
Oregon coach is planning a foot
ball clinic to occupy part of the
program. At Arizona they proved
popular. Various footballers will
pit their wares against each other
in competition such as punting,
passing, and running, and the
coaches will discuss various types
of football play.
Burley Bob Creighton's descrip
tion of his screaming line drives

the other day which almost floored
the big righthander.

Travel North Today
Fifteen Men Chosen by Coach Hobson;
Team Meets Washington, Idaho, and
Washington State in Seven Days
By GEORGE PASERO
Fifteen Oregon tossers don their traveling jackets at 4:45 this
afternoon and head for Seattle, the first stop on their crucial six-game
swing around the northern outposts of the conference baseball front.
Five pitchers, four outfielders, four infielders, two catchers, and
Student Manager Bill Foster were included in the traveling party,
named by Coach Howard Hobson yesterday.
On Friday and Saturday, the Duck baseballers clash with the Wash- 1
ington Huskies. Saturday night, ^
they shove off again, this time for
the heart of the Inland Empire
where they meet Idaho’s Vandals'
Monday and Tuesday and Wash
ington State’s Cougars Wednesday
And by the time they bow out
of Pullman, on the road back home,
they and Oregon fans will have a
pretty good idea just how good
are the Ducks’ chances of giving
Coach Hobson his second northern
division title of the year.
At present Coach Hobby’s base
bailers are tied with Oregon State
and Idaho, each with five wins and
Burly Bob Creighton and Bob
Hardy, mainstays of the mound
corps, are expected to work the
two Washington games in Seattle.
These two hurlcrs both blanked
the Huskies in Eugene, Creighton
posting a 3-0 score, and Hardy
winning, 18 to 0.
l.inn and Jasper
The other chuckers making the
trip are A1 Linn, who hurled three
shutout innings against the Hus
kies in helping Hardy win, Pete
Igoe, and Jack Jasper. All are ex
pected to see plenty of service in
the heavy schedule.
Cece Walden, first-string re
ceiver, and Jim Ftathbun, sopho
more hustler, will handle the back
Tommy Cox, Whizzer White, Jim
Nicholson, Jack Shimshak, and
Hob Hardy (when he isn’t pitch
ing) will patrol the outfield.
Only infielders named were the
four regulars- Wimpy Quinn, third
base; Ford Mullen, second base;
Elmer Mallory, shortstop; and
Busher Smith, first base.
Cox ami Shimshak
Should any of the infielders need
relief over the grueling grind, how
ever, Coach Hobson can call upon
Tommy Cox or Jack Shimshak to
come in from the outfield. Both
were infielders in their frosh days.
At Seattle, Coach Tubby Graves
of the Huskies is expected to throw
his two aces, Warren Sierer and
Chet Johnson. Johnson lost to
Creighton in a pitching duel, and
Sierer, a righthander with a jug
handle curve, beat Oregon State
once this year.

game, the final full practice before
the Husky series, Coach Hobson:
pitched for the regulars hooking
up in a hurling duel with A1 Linn
and Jack Jasper of the yannigans.
The yannigans won 2 to 0, Tommy
Cox and Jack Shimshak working a
double steal to score the winning
run. The yannigans picked up their
final score in the last inning when
Catcher Maury Kelly smashed out
a hit, went to third, and scored on
a perfect squeeze bunt by Cox.

Another new combination will
see former frosh Bill Regner and
