season newspaper information on
the 45-46 outlook.
“The outlook on paper is fine at

to, competition should be hot and
heavy, said Hobson,”
Coach Hobson has received in

With the biggest share of last

service we may look forward to a
pretty fair team, at least on paper.

Washington Huskies in Seattle. Between now and the initial
clash, marking Oregon’s return to the Pacific Coast Collegiate
ranks after a three year leave of absence, coach “Tex” Oliver
and his staff plan to hold three
scrimmage sessions before an

Competition is high for start

None of the positions on the
squad are cinched because every

King Football has started to take hold on the campus what with fiis
return this fall. It sounds good to hear the yells of the players as they
run out on the scrimmage field. Later you will probably hear these yells
turn into moans and groans as the scheduled workout .comes to an end
and the players manage to reach the dressing room by their own power.
This is a short word picture of what you might expect to find at a
Webfoot football practice. Coach Oliver and his staff are really going
to have to work a miracle as their first game is with Washington in
Seattle a week from today.
Washington has ten returning lettermen plus sixteen Naval trainees
who have had varying degrees of experience. The point that puts Wash
ington in the number one spot is the ability to field two experienced
The Huskies are also very lucky in the practice department, as they
have been working out together all summer and have thus been able to
determine the weakness of any players that there may be. This long
practice period will also have toughened up the players against any in
juries that they might sustain during their coming gridiron schedule.
One thing will be certain though, regardless of the competition that
is facing the Lemon and Green eleven they will go down fighting. Ore
gon’s team may be an inexperienced eleven but that won’t make any
difference in their fighting spirit.
Oregon will run into similiar situations at both UCLA and California. -
Both these California teams are making first class use of all the foot
ball material that they are able to find in the military personnel attend
ing these two schools. Any rivals that play schools with such setups wiftx*
be definitely asking for it and getting it, probably. Oregon can take it,
only the first game will be able to show us how they will make out in the
other department. We will be pulling for the Webfeet all the way and we
hope that the rest of the school will feel apd do the same.
