    Stanton to Captain
Gridders Saturday
By FRED TAYLOR
Right tackle Don Stanton, 218 pound junior first-stringer, was
named by Coach Jim Aiken to captain the Webfoot grid club
Saturday against the University of Washington in the Mutno
mah stadium battle.
Stanton has been one of the “iron men” in the Oregon line
playing nearly 50 minutes of every ball game this season. As one
of the strongest memoers or me
Duck forward wall last season he
was second only to Bob Koch in
the number of minutes played.
Oregon is going to depend heav
ily upon power plays for yardage
against the Huskies, it appears, as
the weather man promises little
hope for a letup in the rain this
weekend, a n d, therefore, little
hope for a passing attack. Two
sets of ball-carriers have been
groomed for the past week in prac
tice for action against the Seattle
crew.
Johnson Ready
Besides the probable starting
backfield of Jim Newquist and
Jake Leicht at the half spots and
Bob Koch at fullback, a heavier
and nearly as fast set of backs is
ready to go. DeWayne Johnson,
who has mostly seen action on de
fensive operations this season, is
expected to be at right half a good
share of the time Saturday.
George Bell, who played a rug
ged brand of ball defensively)
against UCLA last week, is slated
to do some ball-carrying from the
left half position. Booming Bob
Sanders, the pile-driving fullback
from North Bend who smashed
across the only Oregon touchdown
Saturday is the third member of
this power unit. The trio is expected
to see considerable action individ
ually, as well as a ground-attack
unit.
The Webfoot mudders went
through another sloppy practice
Thursday as they worked over
the passing and ground plays
that are to he used against the
Huskies.
A light tapering-off drill is sched
uled for today, as the team is not
going to Portland until tomorrow
morning. The 37-man squad, leav
ing by train at 8:25 a m., will arrive
at Portland at 11:30. From the
train station a bus will take the
.squad directly to the stadium. A
light loosening-up drill will be held
before the game.
Pass Defense Tight
The golddust combination of
Norm Van Brocklin and Dan Garza
is expected to have a rough time
a.gainst the Huskies. Van Brocklin
has been having some trouble with
his aerials because of the pigskin’s
slippery condition, and he will have
to toss against the best pass de
fense on the coast. Washington has
allowed fewer pass completions
than any other team in the con
ference this season.
Art Mill/', a sticky-fingered
reserve end, will not lie able to
make the Portland juant as ex
pected. The slender receiver is
back in the infirmary, after a
short release after a flu attack.
Those making the trip for the
'Washington, game are: ends/
Wayne Bartholemy, Dan Garza, J.
V* McGowan, Pete Miller, Darrell
Robinson, Lou Robinson, Larry
Stoeven, Bob Thomson, Pete Tor

Warren Calls
First Practice
For Monday
Top physical condition will
he the slogan Monday when the
first turnout of varsity basket
ball hopefuls takes place. John
Warren, newly appointed head
mentor, has warned all poten
tial hoopsters that in order to
survive the tough competition
for a team berth they will have
to be able to run, and this calls for
first-rate condition.
Warren has already announced
his intention to stick with the fast
break style used by former Coach
Howard Hobson. The Ducks have
long been known as one of the fast
est moving teams in the country,
and are always big drawing cards
on their eastern pre-season inva
sion because of the wide-open brand
of ball played.
The Wehroot eourtmen win
again make the eastern tour this
fall, as they have in the past, al
though the exact schedule isn’t
set yet. In the past the Oregon
team has usually made two ap
pearances in Madison Square
Garden in New York City.
Competition for a place on the
varsity squad will be tough this
fall. At least six lettermen are ex
pected to turn out Monday, along
with a number of sharpsters up
from the frosh and junior varsity
squads.
If more players report for
practice than can be handled on
the varsity squad a junior varsity
team will be formed. It will be
coached by Don Kirsch, newly
appointed assistant hoop mentor
and head baseball coach.
Both last year’s frosh and junior
varsity maple quints had regular
playing schedules, and racked up
enviable records. The freshmen
hung up 22 straight victories be
fore they were knocked off, and
the Jayveees dropped only six
games in their 30-game season.
Injuries Many
Moscow, Idaho, Oct. 16 (UP) —
Coach Dixie Howell softpedaled to
day’s workout of the University of
Idaho gridders to avoid further in
juries to the team. Quarterback
Russ Moffett, guard Grant Potter
and tackle Carl Kiilsgaard are al
ready doubtful starters in Satur
day’s game here with Portljantt
University.
Hermann von Helmholtz, Ger
man scientist, invented the oph
thalmoscope in 1851. The device
permits experts to inspect the in
side of the eyes.
To See Action
Famiiyman Jim Newquist, who runs hard and is fast on his feet, for
his 180 pounds, will figure in Coach Jim Aiken’s power plays against
the Washington Huskies in Portland Saturday. This is his final year
of football.
Ducklings Leave Today
For Clash with Huskies
By EDWIN PAXSON
A 35-man frosh traveling squad,
including coaches, trainer, and
manager, will board the train at
8:30 this morning for thehir final
away-from-home contest of the
season against the Washington
Babes in Seattle at 2 p.m. Satur
day.
Only the gridders slated to make
the northern trip worked out yes
terday. There was no scrimmage on
defensive or offensive maneuvers,
but Coach Heldt ran his proteges
through punting drills and signs
practice prior to the all-day jaunt
on the “Beaver.”
Morrison Out
With the exception of Halfback
Dick Morrison, who suffered a
knee injury last Saturday, the
starting line-up for the Pup clash
will probably be the same squad
that lined up against EOCE at Pen
dleton.
Doug Coghill and Dick Mobley
will get the nod at ends, Bill
O’Hara and Bill Marker at tackles,
Chet Daniels and Art Harris at
guards. Dick Patrick will man the
pivot position.
In the backfield, rifle-armed Earl
Steelle will take the hand-off from
center in the T-formation quarter
back spot. At left half will be Ha
waiian-born Bobby Moore, and
Dennis Sullivan will be stationed
at right. Big Jim Hanns, former
Eugene Hi line-buster, will round
out the potent backfield at the tail
back post.
Traveling roster will be: Dick

Pest Pulls
Fast Play'
Coach Ralph Welch started to
work his University of Washington ‘
Huskies indoors yesterday, but
quickly moved them outdoors into "
the rain when he learned that rain
also is falling in Portland, scene of -
this Saturday’s encounter with
Oregon.
As a muddy contest seems likely, -
Welch will probably have a start
ing backfield that averages 193 _
pounds. This would put Dick Ot
tele at quarterback, Larry Hatch
and Sam Robinson at the halves, .
and Marshall Dallas at the fullback
slot.
The Husky forward wall is ex
pected to average 203 pounds per
man. Gail Bruce and A1 Kean are ,
likely to start at the wing posts.
Arnie Weinmeister and John Pre
chek will be at tackles, and Dmitri -
Tadich and Alf Hemstad at guards.
Gordy Berlin is the probable center.
People who know little are usual
ly great talkers.
