Doc' Spears
CHICAGO, Nov. 16 (AP)
Coach "Doc" Spears of Wisconsin
is going to get a gift of -some kind
from the University of Chicago
football team just before Satur
day's game as a Maroon jinx
This is how it all came about.
The Maroons were winning foot
ball games and going along fine

show esteem and affection for
Coach Amos Alonzo Stagg, the II
lini decided something must be
done so the mini club of Chicago
presented him with a blanket be
fore the game. Result: Chicago
lost the game.'
Next came Purdue. The Boiler
makers decided to honor Coach
Stagg with a blanket and a ham
mer. Result: Purdue won under
The idea advanced to Michigan.
Last Saturday, Michigan present
ed Coach Stagg with a silver ser
vice. Result: Michigan beat the
Naturallv. there was eonsider-
Dle consternation among the Ma-
rnnn 'nliiMM tnriav whan ttiov
learned that Wisconsin had de
cided to honor Coach Stagg with
another "going away presenta
tion. . .
Out of somewhere, a brilliant
Idea popped. It was suggested that
the; team present Coach, Spears
with a "going away" present. The i
Idea drew a bie cheer and a unan- 1
imous vote.
So "Doc" will get some kind of.
a present before Saturday's game,
even if Ifs just a box of salve, a
harmonica or a tin cup.

All-American of CripDles
Could be Selected; Pug
Renther is Latest
NEW YORK, Not. 1. -(AP)
Although Injuries and death on
the football field this fall have
trailed mercifully behind the awe
some totals ot 1931, there seems
never to hare been a season in
modern pigskin history when se
vere hurts struck so consistently
at the outstanding players.
Out of at least a- dozen stars
badly hurt, "Pug" Rentner of
Northwestern already had gained
All-American fame and at least
two others, Orvllle Mohler of
Southern California, and Ed King
of . Army, were outstanding possi
bilities for : this year's mythical
Rentner, placed at halfback in
the Associated Press All-American
last fall, hailed by no less an au
thority than "Red" Grange as the
greatest college back he ever saw,
came suddenly -to the end or his
college football career Saturday
when he suffered two broken ribs
against Notre Dame.
Mohler Robbed of
All-American Bid
Mohler,' Southern California's
brilliant quarterback, was an even
more serious casualty, being forc
ed out- of competition In his last
and what promised to be his great- j
est year, by a neck injury suf
fered against California October
22. Doctors decided the sensation
al Coast ball carrier would be
risking death if he were to play
again with the vertebrae in his
neck in such a weakened condi
tion. King, Army's great end, was
considered the best wlngman In
the country and an almost certain
All-American choice when he frac
tured a leg against Harvard.
But aside from these stalwarts,
the toll of men who seemed cer
tain for sectional, if not national
honors, has been equally gTeaf.
Almost before the season was
under way. "My" Ubl, fine Min
nesota back, suffered a fractured
chest bone and developed compli
cations that almost cost his life.
Shortly afterward two Michigan
backs were severely injured, one.
Jack Heston, son of the famous
Willie Heston of line busting
fame, battered out of competition
for the season with a broken leg.
Sooth and East
Heavy Sufferers
The other, Stan Fay, has recov
ered sufficiently fro a side In
jury to rejoin Michigan's parade
toward the Big Ten championship.
In the south the hopes and 'as
pirations of John "Hurry" Cain,
Alabama fullback who was an' al
most unanimous choice last season
for the All-Southern team, were
blasted by persistent hurts that
have spoiled his play.
Bill Edgar. Virginia quarter
back, became a major casualty
with a broken leg.
Equally heavy casualties have
been added to that of King In the
east. In rapid succession Art Lane,
best of the Prineeton tackles, was
eliminated for the season with a

Old Rivals
Will Clash
At Woodburn
WOODBURN, Nov. 16. Con
fident that "this is the year,"
Coach Gil Oddie's football charges
of Woodburn high school,' will
step onto the local school athletic
field Friday afternoon to meet the
school's time-honored opponents,
As far as both high schools are
concerned, the Silverton - Wood-
burn clash is the highlight of the
season, win, lose or draw. And
this year is no exception In an
other matter, that of picking the
possible winner.
Woodburn Is conceded to have
a slightly stronger team than the
Silver Foxes. Comparative scores,
unreliable as they generally are,
nevertheless give the Bulldogs a
slight edge, as doej the fact that
the game will be played on the
Woodburn field. The two opposing
lines will probably weigh almost
the same, but Silverton' back-
field will undoubtably outweigh
Wood burn's.
Bud Courtney, the Woodburn
tackle who played such a whale
of a game against Molalla two
weeks ago Is laid up with an at
tack of flu. Courtney's absence
has made It necessary for Oddle
to shift Lawrence Koch from end
to the tackle position. Koch is not
green hand at tackle, having
played there two seasons before
being moved out to the end. John
ny Klnns will probably hold dow
the vacated end position.
As for the remainder of the
team personnel, it will probably
be the same as has started In most
of the games this season. In the
backfleld will be Gearin, Skiller,
Boyle and Halter. The line, from
left end to right, will probably be
Klnns, L. Koch, Couyne, Block,
Pavalek, Larson and G. Koch.
A special football rally for the
coming big game will be held by
the Woodburn high school stu
dents Thursday night.

ot reversing the outcome appear
to be rather slight; but fans who
saw the game are of the opinion
that If Leslie can figure out a way
to stop Phil Salstrom. elusive Par
rish ball carrier, they have about
a 50-50 chance.
Salstrom scored all of Parrlsh's
three touchdowns, the first two
before a Leslie tackier ever touch

mrday, la one issue that is both
ering Coach Spec Kfene of Wil
lamette, along with the more
serious problem of winning
the game.
. The kind of . reception Spec
would consider entirely appropri
ate, would be a flood which
would .make It necessary for Nig
Borleske to charter an ark for the
trip and hunt around among tbe
stores Saturday morning for surf
boards . on which his halfbacks
could ride to touchdowns.
Weather early this week pro
vided some hope of this com
ing to pass, bat now it ' has
moderated. Refusing to rely
upon Jape Plavias, Spec has
been oat reconnoitrrlng the
situation. He finds that the
fire department is ready and
willing to assist and its pump
ing equipment in good shape.
There Is no hydrant within con
venient distance from Sweetland
field, but the millrace runs right
alongside the gridiron, and the
tire department has a suction
hose which may be used in such
a case; in fact it has been used
to flood the field early in the fall
to lay the dust and soften the
gridiron. Spec says it's a simple
matter to plug up the drains so
the water, once pumped on, will
not run away. In faci, he Is sure
he can turn Sweetland field into
a veritable quagmire by Satur
day noon.
AH this, of course, is to be
done in retaliation for what Nig
did last year. Xig sent his en
tire squad np into the Cascades
to practice in a foot of snow;
then he loaded a lot of that
snow onto tracks and spread it
over the gridiron in tbe Walla
