ate manager. This tilt will be
the final one for Oregon before
leaving to play California at
Berkeley, November 3.
Oregon's overwhelming defeat
of Washington, has given the
team some confidence for a vic
tory against California. The old
cry of "hold 'em Oregon" has van
ished, and nothing short of a win
will satisfy. The team is the
strongest turned out here in many
years, and is following out coacn
John J. McEwan's prediction that
Oregon would begin to win in his
third year as coach.
The Washington victory was
not entirely free Jrom gloom
Five regulars and one substitute
were unable to return to . prac
tice at the first of the week,
George Stadelman and George
ChappelL centers; George Chris-
tensen, tackle, and Ted Pope, all
are suffering from minor injuries.
Cotter Gould, fullback,, is on the
side-lines with a wrenched, hip.
and Charles Williams, half, has
x severe cold. All these players
will be ready before the Califor
nia battle. ' .
McEwan will spend much time
in the next ten days drilling the
reserves. Oregon's showing in
the California contest will depend
greatly on the ability of the Ore
gon reserves. The reserve - line
under development is: Robert
Keeney, Jerome Lillie, Everett
