The Salem high players will be
facing a new style of play In to

what the offense of Coach La

with the defensive power of the
backfield strengthened, long runs
should not materialize.
The backfield starting for the
Cherrians has drive and almost
everything that a backfield
should contain. Welsser, Sngai
and McCaffery can all hit the line
for necessary short gains and all
are savage tacklers. McCaffery
and Sugai are also speedy men

gains if given half a chance.

NOTHER of football's an

Thanksgiving Day game be
tween Penn and Cornell will fea

though Coach Harvey Harmon's
henchmen are in for a macing that
may all but meet the massacre pro
portions of their 49-0 thrashing by
Notre Dame on Nov. 7. Of course,
many things have happened to

Until Penn ran afoul of that
amazing Rockne heirloom (which
many think is the greatest football

captain and the other regular end
were laid up by injuries and the
rest of the team was powerless be
fore the devastating sweep of
Notre Dame. Perhaps any team
would have met the same fate that
day even Cornell. However, the
latter seems to have one of its
strongest teams in years this Fall.
Fans knew of Bart Viviano, the
Ithicans' remarkable line-banger
from his great work in 1930 and
al3o of those agile Mexicans, the
Martinez-Zorrilla brothers Chris
and Jose. But not until the 13-0
victory over Columbia on Oct. 31
did the general public know that
Coach "Gil" Dobie had produced
an even brighter star in Jack Fer
raro, whose backfield activities are
reminiscent of the memorable
Eddie Kaw. Viviano is still the
main Ithacan battering ram, but
the running and passing Ferraro
seems to be Dobie's chief rlima-r
player. Behind a typical bie and
powerful Dobie line, these backs
should run riot against Penn un
four nights each week. Actual
competition will start December
14, with three games on each of
the evenings of competition. There
will be no games through the
Christmas holiday period.

If Willamette ever had any

One sport event of the Thanks
giving week end which has re

the wrestling. ahow. which Mach-
maker Harry Plant has planned
fpr Friday, night. After seeing the
great bout that Art O'Reilly and
"SDeed" "Welkum' put on at the
armory Armistice eve. Plant fig
ures they are due for a mam event
and so they will be the beadllners.
On that occasion they grappled
45 minutes to a draw, each get
ting a fall. The general opinion
was that .they had more fire than
the main eveiters of that show,
even though ' the latter, "Prof"
Newton and Jack Brentano, fur
nished a; variety of plentiful ac
tion. In addition. It was thougnt
that O'Reilly and Weikum who
were meeting for the first time,
needed more time to demonstrate
which was the better man. Ac
cordingly Friday night's bout will
be a two-hour affair.
O'Reilly One of
Oreiren'a Roughest -
O'Reilly has always been recog
nized as one of the leading "tough
guys" of the mat game in Oregon,
stopping at nothing much when
he gets steamed up. but m tneir
first encounter Welkum kept
even with him by an exceptional
use of the punishing leg split.
This makes the second program
at the armory In the same week,
something not attempted since
about a year ago; but on the oth
er hand there has been no wres
tling since Armistice day and
Plant has an idea the fans are
hungry for It. Friday night'a show
will be put on at reduced prices.
Je Gardiner of Portland and
Pete Axtman of Kelso will be the
preliminary contestants, clashing
for 30 minutes.
