    Webfoot Gridders Battle Devildogs in Opener Tonight
Season’s Action
Starts at 8:00
Olivermen Rated as Slight Favorites;
Hal Roise and Johnny Ryland Slated
To Perform for Marines
Co-Sports Editor
Oregon opens its 1940 season this evening under the lights of Hay
ward field against the San Diego Marines, who, although added to
the schedule as tuneup opponents, are rapidly assuming proportions
of major foes.
The Marines, who arrived by air Wednesday, went through a
light calisthenics drill and a secret dummy scrimmage Thursday
morning. Thirty-three strong, they
looked fit, and with the exception
of one or two, no excessive pound
age was noticeable.
Coached by Lt. Col. Elmer E.
Hall, former Oregon lineman, the
squad has run up an enviable rec
ord. Last year it ranked as one of
the few undefeated and untied ball
clubs in the nation. The Marines
rolled up 241 points in 11 games
against ,48 points scored by their

These additions coupled with a
veteran starting lineup (of which
two were shoved back to the ET
team) bids fairs to cause Oregon
no little anguish before the game
is finished tonight. Hall is in such
a position that he has two teams—•
A and B—-who are on a par. He
won’t know until game time as to
which unit he will start. When he
makes replacements, it will be a
whole team unless he takes one or

Rains Threaten
The Oregon team went through
a light workout yesterday to loos
en up for the test tonight. Over
cast skies with an accompanying
downpour of rain caused many a
student and fan to fear a rain and
mud for the opening game. The
weather forecast for today lists
occasional rains over the western
portion of Oregon with a strong
southerly wind off the coast.
Despite the past year's record
of the Devildogs, the Oregon Ducks
have been cast in the role of a
slight favorite, although railbird3

According to Hall, the Marines
have had about as much heavy
scrimmage as the Oregons. Oregon
started scrimmagnig on the fir:t
day of practice September 12
and the Marines really dug in ear
nest about two weeks ago.
Veterans Counted On
Oliver will be counting Heavily
on the performance of his seniors
when the show opens tonight. All

Erling Jacobsen in the line and the

co-senior manager, who gets for
his trouble a $3 2 sweater, the foot

The striking sophomores are re

for the four hours a day that they
put in over at the field. They can’t
understand why the juniors are
striking because after all, as they
point out, “The juniors are filthy

worth of sweater and one whole
ticket to every home game ... a
grand total of two whole tickets.”
The freshmen get $2.12 worth

robbery; it’s petty larceny.

Steers Looked On
As Triple-Threat
Track Performer __
Les Steers, ace field-event man
from Palo Alto, has arrived on the
Oregon campus by way of San
Mateo junior college to bolster
Oregon's under-manned track
The six-foot, two-inch, 185
pounder holds the unofficial world's
high jump record of six feet, nine
and three-quarters inches and is
reported to have barely missed
clearing the bar at seven feet in
practice sessions. He also is said
to be a capable man with a jave
lin, having cast the Finnish tooth
pick out some 208 feet—more than
far enough to classify him as “big
time” material in that event. Just
to keep busy, he has developed his
shot putting form sufficiently to
be good for a 47-foot heave.
Already holding the major coast
invitational high jump records, in
cluding the Hill meet in Portland,
Les is pointing toward decathlon
competition. This'contest requires
all around track ability; contest
ants are scored on a basis of their
marks in each of ten events. He is
majoring in physical education.
Steers is the third high jump
star to appear at Oregon within
the last two years. Jim Harris set
the school varsity all-time record
at six feet, three and three-quar
ters last spring while Bill Beifuss
cleared six feet two and three
eighths inches.
