Successful Grid Season
Grand Old Man of Football
To Bow Out at End of This
Year; Resigned to His Fate
CHICAGO, Oct. IS (AP) Amos Alonzo SUgg, graod old
man of American football, was forced out as director of
athletics and head football coach at the University of Chi
cago tonight after 40 years of service.
The order for Stagg's retirement next June, coming as
Squad -of 23 Includes Only
One Able-Bodied Extra
Man for Backfield
Tilled with grim realization
that for the first time in four
seasons they are the "under
dogs"; In Northwest conference
football, 23 Willamette university
gridmen accompanied by Coach
"Spec" Keene boarded a train
here early Thursday night. To
night, under the flood lights in
the Caldwell stadium, they will
meet a veteran College of Idaho
team which senses in this year's
setup, a prime opportunity for
revenge which may wipe out
three successive defeats.
Still uncertain as to whether
Walt Erickson and Ed Frantz,
billed as regulars at the opening
of the season, will be able to
play any major part in the game
with the Coyotes, Coach Keene
was uncertain up to the time of
the squad's departure, Just what
his starting lineup would be. Ev
erything considered, especially
the fact that Erickson and Frantz
have done little practicing with
the varsity and will not be able
to time thiir movements with
the others, it seemed probable
that the same backfield which
started against Washington State
will be on the field at the be
ginning of tonight's conflict:
Orayec, Cannady, Paul and Ol
son. Keith Jones is making the
trip but stands little chance of
playing for more than a short
time. Dwight Adams is the only
able-bodied reserve backfield man
taken along.
The line is better supplied,
with Houck and Grs.nnis ready
for duty at center, Boyd, Felton,
Tweed and Woodworth at guard,
Weisser, Jockisch. Connors and
McKerrow at tackle. Kaiser. Crib
ble, Clarke, Carson and Emmel
at end.
Coyotes Will Have
Edge on Reserves
Willamette will not be out
weighed by College of Idaho but
Coach Anse Cornell of the Coy
otes will have all the adge on
experience and teani develop
ment, and especially in the mat
ter of reserves. The altitude and
the cold weather which the
Bearcats may encounter, are oth

which seems probable, it will not
necessarily be out of the race.
All of the- remaining games are
at home with the possible excep
tion of the one with Pacific,
which will be played here or in
Portland. The Willamette team
will be stronger when the num
erous cripples round into con
dition, and it may make a bet

It's at the expense of quality.
JWe have one of thoe lit tit

to a realization that they can

This year the Oregon Staif

cially hard on the Bearcat squad;
about five of the Willamette regu
lars have done no playing sine.
There was some informal mention

Now in golf, for purposes if

holes, based on what scores tt
opposing players have averaged in
the past. Wonder if there's ary
way to do that in football?
Spotting the little college 2
or 0 points wouldn't really
help, because ft would be too
obvious. Many times it has been
suggested that the big eoUege

or whatever number the lit tit
fellow can muster.
But why not another system
that would make, of these uneven
contests, fairly well matched
games in which the lesser lights
of the big squads would get thefr
chance to shine ?
By a little experimenting, a
basU of handicapping could b
arrived at, and then the coach
for the little college coul'I
scratch off a certain number of
names from the big college's
