Preliminary Between Pair
Of Rough Boys Also to
Draw big Interest
The thump of Urge bodies on
upholstered planks will be beard
again at the armory tonight when
Chet Wiles, fast-moving Portland
policeman - wrestler, mixes with
Sailor Franz, 175-pound champion
of the nary.
Fans here hare always had a
yen for the big boys because the
big towns feature them, but sel
dom hare they found a pair of
heavyweights who could put up
the battles which middleweights
and welters have accustomed them
to expect.
But in the 175 - pound class
there Is a happy medium combin
ing the "best features of each,"
and knowing Wiles' ability, the
fans are hoping to see something
tonight. They know nothing about
Frans except that he put on a
great show in Portland last week
and had a good many fans there
pulling for him.
- A certain large number of fans
who value fireworks above science
see In tonight's preliminary more
of promise than in the main event.
This opening event will bring to
gether two masters of the off
color In mat tactics, Art O'Reilly
of Eugene, who always seems to
be on the point of committing
mayhem, and Tony Cordona, the
' cannibal, who spent his time
last Tuesday night alternating be
tween private debates with spec
tators and biting his opponent.
who happened to be Jack Bren
tano on that occasion.
The lid Is off for this match.
and those who hope to see blood
shed will have their eyes open at

Washington State Eleven to
Invade Corvallis for
Annual Contest
Corvallis, Oct. 17 Oregon BUte
college football team will meet
Washington SUte here Saturday
afternoon in the first Orange con
ference game to be played at
home this season. Oregon State
freshmen win meet the Oregon
freshmen here Friday night In the
! first game of their annual two-
game series.
After two weeks rest the Or
ange varsity is expected to be at
full strength for the strong Wash
ington State team. Following a
poor opening season start the Or
angemen played Southern Cali
fornia to a stand-still in their sec
ond conference game only to lose
10 to 0. Many changes have been
made In the Orange lineup during
I the past two weeks in an attempt
to perfect the strongest combina
tion for the Cougar contest.
Oregon State has not defeated
Washington State since II 27
when the game was last played
here. An Orange team has only
defeated a "Babe Holllngbery pro
duct" once, in 1927, although past
contests have always been close.
The score of the game in 1927 was
IS to 6; Washington State won in
1928. 9 to 7 at Pullman; in 1929.
9 to 0 at Portland; in 1930, 14 to
7 at Portland; and in 1931 7 to
at Portland.-
Both teams were faced with the
same opening practice problem
this fall when first ' string men
were missing from tackle to tack
le in the line. Much shifting was
done in the rival camps to fill
these holes to advantage and the
new linemen have come through
i fairly well. The two teams ap
pear to be about on a par as both
backflelds are strong while - the
lines need bolstering.
The annual rook-frosh encount
er promises to carry as much ri
valry and interest as ever this
year. Neither team looks to be
particularly strong to date. As a
comparison the rooks defeated
Chemawa 17 to 0 two weeks ago
and the froth stopped the Indians
IS to 8 last weekend.

ARVARD'S crimson and
Dartmouth's green will
mincle this week-end in a
football spectacle in which plenty
of color will be provided for the
many supporters of the respective
New England institutions.
Harvard is looked to as one of the
Dig teams of the East this year, and
her record of 1931, in which only one
Fame was lostto Yale makes
the Crimson an outstanding color
in' the collegiate paintbox.
Ed Casey, the Harvard coach, has
a lot to live up to and the absence
of Barry Wood, the boy who earned
a permanent niche for himself in
the honor hall at Cambridge, and
several other stellar performers
doesnt help the situation.
For his backfkld, Casey relies om
the second-string men of last year,
and they will be a mighty help to
make a good combination.
Perhaps the brightest spot in the
Harvard outlook is Jack Criekard,
who returned to college and his foot
ball uniform, and is oat to back up
the estimates of experts who term
him a great ball carrier. He has
his work eut oat for him in making
op for the loss of Wood and Mays,
bat he has shown that he has the
staff that the Harvard team needs.
Dartmouth, too, suffers from the
loss of several of its mainsprings
of last season. Bill Morton and

Five Hard Games in Sight

faee the not too cheering situs-j

previously been considered strong

two probably as strong.

Now doesn't that knock you for
a loop? Here Prink has built up,
in his first season, a stronger
team than the great Doc Spears
had last year. Usually the wolves
allow a coach to get his "system"
going. And then a play that never
happened before comes along and
licks him and somebody gets out
the hatchet.
Anyway, don't get us wrong.
Wo said it was a boner; that's

wasnt tho pass that was a
boner; it was relinquishing the
hall needlessly. Handing over

lost la the last 10 years? That
makes the fourth. And supposing.
Just for argument, Prink was a

touchdowns and then, reputedly
playing far below form, held St.
Martins to a similar score.
St. Martins, said to be a Univer

farm, a year ago beat the Albany
eleven 51 to 0. That same Albany
team defeated College of Idaho
and held Willamette to a 25 to
13 score. This year under a new
coach, Lappenbuseh, Albany has a
lot of new blood and most of last
year's men, being, for the first
time, well equipped with reserves.
Albany Is near enough to Sa
lem that its athletes have always
felt that universal resentment
against the fellow Just a little
bigger, and they always fight
hardest against any Salem team.
Albany eollege carries on that
eternal warfare against Willam
ette. For the past several seasons
Albany, always expected to be a
push-over, has forced the Bear-
xats to the limit to win.

Back home after a wierd beat
ing at the hands ef Bend's Lava
Bears, the Salem high school ball,
squad Monday afternoon took up
tho task of preparing for Albany
high, which -will be played at
Albany Friday afternoon.
Partly through dissatisfaction
with his team's showing at Bend
and partly because of Injuries
which probably will mend before
the week is over. Coach Hollls
Huntington tried out a new back
field combination Monday.. He
placed Welsser at quarter, Mar
tin at Full, ' WIntermute and
Knight at the halfback poets.
This combination gives him more
weight but less experience in the
backfleld. Serrill also will be
given a chance to show this wek
what ho can do.
Hauser, halfback, was not on
hand Monday nlrht as he w&s
giving an injured knee a rest.
Penino,- quarter, waa not out for
practice and it was reported he
bad injured his back, which was
strained previously last baseball
Albany Is reported to have a
fairly strong team this year, but
whether that is true or not, it
will be a tough opponent for Sa
lem, since their traditional riv
alry always brings two hard
fighting elevens together.
The red and black appeared
outstandingly stronger than the
Lava Bears who, lacking' their
chief ball carrier -Pop" Haines,
made only two first downs in
cluding the one for a touchdown.
Salem made 20 first downs but
went nowhere when the goal lice
was in sight, except for the one
time when a pass, Perrine to
Engle, scored.
Bend, however, had a kicker
who -kept putting them out of
bounds In "coffin comer." where
as about five Salem punts were
blocked. Including the one that
rolled back over the goal line and
was grounded by a Bend player
for tho winning touchdown.
