Who will be the stars of the 1945 football season? Will Army's
P.lanchard. Davis and 1’oolc again be named all-American? \\ ho
will replace Heissman award winner Les Horvath of Ohio
State? Will lake Reich t become Oregon's first all-American in
nearl y a decade i
These and other questions will lie formost in football fans’
11 inds the countin' over from now until the last vaiious all
American team is made public in late Decembei.
It's all part of a craze which grips grid followers annually—
a three-month craze extending Irom earls Septeinbei to Janu
ary 1, date of the bow! games.
Tell a football bug that all-American teams are. in a sencc. a
farce, and he will agree with you but, paradoxically, those same
fans would moan long and loud if the annual policy of selecting
oil-star aggregations \yere discontinued.
Speak of football fans and you speak of greats. Speak of
greats and vou speak of all-Americans. J hey are indelibly asso
ciated with the pigskin game, so the average fan will tell you.
With this in mind the Oregon Hmerald is publishing an all
American check list, comprising some 100 lads most likely to
gain national laurels during the 1945 season.
A noticeable paucity for coast players exists. Whether the
number will increase as t lie" seas on unfolds must go unanswered
until a 1 aster date.
Well, we'll stick our necks out and give you our slant on how
the coveted eleven will line up ‘When the board gets together to
make their selections.

The football fate of the St.
Mary’s Pre-Flight eleven has
been decided. Jim Lawson's Mor
aga gridders will play this season,
but Washington Naval officii^
have made plans to abandon the
game at three other aviation
Grid play at North Carolina,
Georgia and Iowa have been can
celled. Probable reduction in na
val aviation training and the volun
tary withdrawal of cadets from the
program were given as the reasons
for quitting the sport.
The Airdevils will be able to
field a team as the Navy plans to
keep the pilot training program
there at the present time.
Foist Marine: “Why did you
salute that truck driver?”
Second Marine: “Don’t be so
dumb, that wa sno truck driver.
That was General Hauling—didn’t
you see the sign?”
