Keeping Oregon athletics on a

sweeter. In short that tie, to Anse,

acted like a salve on his personal

Stop Albert! Stop Kmctovich!
Stop Groves! Thut was the cry of
Oregon’s footlrall team as they
worked out in preparation for a
tough battle with Stanford’s In
dians this Saturday at Multnomah
field in Portland.
In the Webfoots’ second secret
practice in as many afternoons Ore
gon’s first team was on the defen
sive against a "Stanford” team
made up of second stringers. Ore
gon State stopped the Indian team
cold in Palo Alto last Saturday by
stopping the three aforementioned
Stanford players, and Coach Tex
Oliver is attempting to profit by
Frankie Albert is Stanford’s most
sensational player. He is very fast,
a good kicker, good blocker, and
dangerous punt receiver. Kmeto
vich, like Albert, a left half, is the
fastest man on the Stanford squad.
Groves, a fullback, is the best all
round man on the team. He kicks,
passes, runs, blocks, and is an ex
cellent pass receiver.
In Tuesday’s scrimmage, Steve
Anderson and Don Mabee acted as
spearheads of Stanford's attack,
with both looking very good in both
passing and running.
Missing from Oregon’s string
v/ere Denny Donovan, brilliant
Irish signal-caller and only expe
rienced quarterback on the team,
who is recuperating from leg injur
ies, and Bob Blenkinsop, end, who
fractured his arm in the opening
quarter of the USC game and who
will be out for the remainder of the

er, hard-driving sophomore from
Benc\, who though inexperienced
looks like a comer. Hymie Harris
was attempting to fill Blenkinsop’s
shoes at left end. Harris is also a
sophomore, his main fort being de
Especially feared by Oregon's
board of strategy is the left side of
Stanford's line, consisting of Graff,
Anderson, and Poole, all veterans
Anderson, giant tackle from Port
land, is being mentioned for all
coast honors, while Graff, an end,
and Poole, a running guard, are
both fast, rugged, and clever.
Sports on Tap
Competition will begin next
week to determine the all-campus
fall intramural champions of ten
nis, golf, pingpong, handball, and
bowling. Singles and doubles
matches will be played in all sports
but I he latter.
This is the first year that the
intramural sports department has
offered an award in bowling. In
creasing campus interest in the
sport has caused Roland Dickie,
head of intramurals, to put it on
the fall activity list. All contests
will be played on the alleys of the

Two football coaches, added to
Oregon’s athletic staff recently,
will contribute their forces to the
cause of boxing and wrestling for
the coming year.
Vaughn Corley, new line coach
whose well-drilled line held South
ern California’s great team to a
7-7 tie, will handle the team.
Eric Waldorf, assistant freshman
football coach, will give the funda
mentals to the wrestling team. The
two new coaches replace Herb Col
well, boxing and wrestling coach of
Corley comes to Oregon with an
excellent record as both line coach
and bcxing coach. He was at New
Mexico State six years. Before that,
he coached four years in high school.
Corley boxed three years as heavy
weight at Texas Tech.
Waldorf came to Oregon to as
sist John Warren with freshman
football and to gain a master’s de
gree. He was head football coach
at Jefferson high school in Port
land for 11 years. Jefferson's Dem
ocrats are noted for their consist
ently well-coached football teams.
Corley Heads Boxers
Waldorf wrestled four years for
Washington State. He was captain
of the team and wrestled as a light
heavyweight. He coached wrestling
two years at Jefferson.
Several boxers and wrestlers on
the campus will form a. nucleus of
the two teams. With a coach for
each team, there will be more of a
distinction between the two teams
than in the past.
Jim Bailey, Jack Fruit, Merle
Hanscom, Harve McKee, Cam Col
lier, and George Warner form the
list of veterans and sophomores on
the boxing team.
Glenn Carroll, Mort Meyers, Jim
Mountain, Burt Dake, and Wendell
Haley complete the roster of veter

viduals competing will pay the
usual costs of games played. The
winners will be decided by the
highest total score at the end of

Blocking and tackling were the
order of the day yesterday after
noon as Honest John Warren,
freshman mentor, guided 58 foot
ball hopefuls through a strenuous
drill in gridiron fundamentals.
Oregon’s future varsity stars
were divided into three groups and
sent through their paces by War
ren and his two assistants, Eric
Waldorf, former Jefferson high of
Portland coach, and Joe Huston,
ex-University player. The session
lasted two hours and was topped
by a light scrimmage between

on team prospects this early in the
season but records show a bumper
crop of ex-high school stars in the
field. Included in the list of players
are 22 out-of-state prospects. Elev
en are from Portland schools, and
25 from other Oregon towns.
Shining light on the freshman
squad so far has been Don Shep
hard of White Bear, Minnesota..
His backfield work labels him as
strong varsity material for next
season. Two California boys, Ray
Gennette and Walt Kaplan, San
Francisco, have also shown up well

Lloyd LeClair, Gold Beach; Steve
Bodner, Eugene; John Bjork, As

Opening contest of the season
for the frosh eleven will be played
in Portland, October 13, against

than two weeks in which to round
