against Stanford last Saturday. He’ll be backing up the line when
Coach Francis Schmidt unleashes his Vandals on Hayward field
Friday night.
Grid Circus to Hit Hayward Field
As Schmidt’s, Oliver’s Boys Meet
The rajah of razzle-dazzle, tired faced Francis Schmidt, brings his
University of Idaho football team to Eugene Friday night, and Hay
ward field once more will turn into a two-ring circus, as two teams
that play ball the spectators way, match brains in what might be a
grid classic.
For 24 long seasons Francis Schmidt has sent grade A football
teams out to do battle—now in his first year at Idaho he will at
tempt to lead the Vandals out of
football’s lonely swamplands. In
their first game this season, the
Vandals were overpowered 2C to 7
by a tough Utah team, and Oli
ver’s Webfoots catching them on
the rebound are liable to run
into a whirlwind attack that
could make a shambles out of
Oregon’s first home appearance.
This is what could happen—but
the wise boys who saw the Web
foots make a blood-chilling stand
against Stanford have a bootfull
of confidence in the Lemon
Small But Brainy
Schmidt has a husky nucleus
of 17 lettermen, and four gold
plated backs in Halves Earl
Chandler and Fred Nichols,
Fullback Bill Micklich, and
Quarterback Pete Hecomovich.
Eleven of his lettermen are
linemen—small men who have
to rely on grid moxie instead of
beef to cross up the opposing
forward wall.
Against Utah, the Vandals
tried 19 passes, of which five
were completed, for a total of
113 yards. Totals in yardage
found the two ball clubs fairly
even. The Vandals seemed to have
most of their trouble when pay
dirt was in sight. Line Coach
Manny Vezie saw the game and
his report is that Idaho is more

to be feared than the lop-sided
score would indicate.
Duck Coach Tex Oliver, hasn’t
as yet revealed his defensive and
offensive plans but the wily head
man isn’t one to take the hipper
dipper boys lightly.
When a pack of little boys, like
Idaho come to town, Oliver’s
thoughts must harken back to a
black day two years ago, when
his warriors returned from a suc
cessful trip down south, only to
run into a mighty band of Gon
zaga boys that took the count of
Oregon. Guys like Tony Canadeo,
Ray and Cecil Hare, who never
made anybody’s All-American
rose like a mountain in the path
of Oregon’s green tornado that
day to knock the Oregon’s out of
the top spot on the coast. No,
Oregon isn’t liable to make that
mistake again, so watch for a
swashbuckling, blood - thirsty
bunch of Webfoots to take the
field against Schmidt’s slickers.
