The “Wandering Webfoots." That monicker adequately
portrays the restless Ducks who in covering their 11*41 season’s
circuit of games will travel from Seattle in the north to Austin.
Texas, in the south. Ami sprinkled between these two points
the Webfoots have booked eight “short" trips. Total mileage
to be traversed by the travel-minded Ducks on their escapades
this fall probably will run into five figures.
first and undoubtedly the toughest game away from home
of the whole season for Mentor Oliver's charges is against the
strong, but weaker than last season. Stanford Indians Satur
day at Palo Alto. Thed'Oliver Twist," a proven system in its
own right, will be doing its darndest to disprove the reputation
established by the famed “T" formation.
Alter the jaunt to the bay region, back home come our
itinerant Ducks to display their wares before home town fans
against Idaho, October .4, in an evening encounter. The game
will mark the Oregon debut of the new Vandal coach, Francis
A. Schmidt. ex-Ohio headman.
1 he home touch is short-lived, however, as the following
week. October 11, Los Angeles calls our Green and Yellow
clad youngsters in the form of the University of Southern
California, under their new mentor. Sam Barry, replacing the
late Howard Jones. That completed, the Ducks will have just
a few days to pause tor breath in Eugene, before continuing
their way northward to Portland where they mix with Cali
fornia on the young green turf of Multnomah stadium.
November 1, tin* transient Ducks alight in Eugene in the
Second of their three local contests. Washington State, reported
on The upswing after several years in the doldrums, will pro
vide the test. A breathing spell occurs the following week for
the Oregon before they swing up to Portland for one of their
biggest battles of the year—against Buck Shaw's Santa Clara
Broncos.
Little Rest for Ducks

i 11 ■ * h roe-weeks drive winding up the season. Seattle is the
locale of the fierce Washington-Oregon rivalry for this year,
November 22. The ensuing Saturday, the Webfoot band hops
to Eugene to make its last Eugene appearance before a home
coming throng against the Oregon State footballers. No

Winding up the travel-fest the Ducks make their biggest
leap, by invading the deep south. December (i. against Texas
University. This season marks the most extensive travel pro

'Big Three7 Loss Viral
r! his talk of Stanford being 28 per cent weaker this rear
Ilia i last year seems to center around the loss of three first
slraig men. lion just three men could lower the effieienev
ol a team as much as 20 per cent Is hard to comprehend. But,
consider the three and their feats and the validity of this
statement can be realized.
Number one loss appears to be Hugh Gallarneau. fleet

MAMMOTH DUCK PIVOTMAN
Bulwark of the Webfoot line is the giant senior center, Elliott
(Lil Abner) Wilson, 6 foot 5 inch 230-pounder, who entrains with his
teammates tonight for Palo Alto.
astounding1 record of having lost only two yards in nine games
last year!
Norm Standlee. burly 216-pound fullback, who was boosted
for All-American honors until injuries struck him down late in
the season, is another big gun who graduated this spring.
Called the most powerful straight ahead runner since Ernie
Nevers and Bronco Nagurski, this rugged line-driver scored
five touchdowns, blocked, tackled, and punted superbly. His
net average from scrimmage was 4.8 yards per try.
The third member of this trio is Stan Graff, pass catching
left end. Not a big man. Graff was a fine all-around player.
Twelve other lettennen received their sheepskins this spring
which also weakened the Indians considerably, but the loss of
these three stars, standouts in their positions, is the main cause
for the chant of gloom which is coming from the Indian
stronghold.
