JOHN M'EWAN LINES
UP COACHING STAFF
Billy Relnhart Gene Shields
and Prink Gallison Named
as Assistant Coaches.
PaM Grid Work to Start Within
J. J. McEwan
In rear gone by the University
of Oregon boasted wonderful coach
ing itaffs, but It U doubtful If any
compare to the
present array of
Captain John J.
McEwan is at the
helm for hie
When he became
head coach four
ts" N years ago, he in-
I n herited few play
ers of outstanding
ability. His first
was a lean one.
Oregon was victor In only one out
of five games. His second year
1927 was even worse, for the Web
toots failed to take a single contest
But the Oregon army mentor
builded slowly and wisely. He con
centrated on bolstering the line,
the last year his efforts bore fruit.
Oregon won the Northwest cham
pionship by trouncing Washington.
27 to 0; Oregon State, 12 to 0; and
Montana, 31 to 6.
Before coming to the University,
Captain McEwan was for three
years head coach at West Point, and
prior to that was chief line coach
there for five years. He is a grad
uate from West Point, where he
played football four years. Walter
Camp selected him all-American
center in 1914; during 1916 he cap
tained the Army team; and he was
one of only two players on an Army
aggregation that defeated the Navy
Captain McEwan's assistants this
year are Billy Relnhart, who will
have charge of the backfield; Gene
Shields, who will assist in coaching
the line, and Prink Callison, head
For the last six years Relnhart
has been head baseball and basket
ball coach, and for the last three
years head freshman football coach.
In the six years Relnhart has
coached at Oregon the university
has won the Northwest champion
ship In basketball twice and twice
finished second. Two years ago his
team won the baseball title, and hia
freshman proteges have been play
ing remarkable football, winning
from the Oregon State rooks both
games last year.
Shields has been a successful
football coach at Commerce high
school in Portland. His 192S team
was runner-up in the Portland high
school league. That is a feat, con
sidering that Commerce has fewer
than 300 boys. Furthermore,
Shields la a former star guard on
the Webfoot eleven.
Callison needs little introduction.
A head coach at Medford high
school his teams have won the state
championship for five years in a
row, and last year's Medford
eleven was considered the strongest
high school team on the entire
coast and one of the most powerful
In the United States.
(Continued from Flnt Pace)
Earl Harvey. Mr. and Mrs. Feld
man from here attended the fun
eral services. Mr. Harvey who had
been working in Canada, returned
to Latourell Falls late Saturday
night, Sept 21. His wife and friends
did not know he was coming and
he was so ill it took him an hour
and a half to walk the mile from
the stage depot to his home. As
Mrs. Harvey was helping him to bed
he carried on a short conversation
with her, and these were the last
words he spoke. The son Earl was
out fighting forest fires and could
not be located until after his fath
er's death. Mr. and Mrs. Harvey
are well known here, having lived
for some time both in lone and on
a farm near here. Mrs. Harvey
and son have the sympathy of their
many friends in their bereavement
Mr. and Mrs. Dale Ray visited
Sunday in the Harry Dinges home
in Lexington. Mrs. Ray's sister,
Mrs. Nellie Dinges of Portland was
also a guest there. During the day
Mr. and Mrs. Dinges, Mr. and Mrs.
Ray and Mrs. Nellie Dinges drove
over the old emigrant trail from
Wells spring to Cecil. Mrs. Nellie
Dinges especially enjoyed the trip
because over the old trail her father
had hauled freight by ox team. Be
fore returning home the party vis
ited at the Lawrence Cochran home
On Wednesday evening of last
week a reception was given the
teachers of our school. A short
program and refreshments were
served. Mrs. Lucy Rodgers, coun
ty school superintendent was In at
tendance. (Too late for last week.)
Friday the 13th brought no bad
luck to the Paul Balsiger party
that started out very early that
morning on a most delightful auto
trip through central Oregon, the
coast regions and the Willamette
valley. The party was made up of
Mr. and Mrs. Paul Balsiger, their
son Alfred and cousin, David Riet
niann. Their first stop was at Moro
where they routed Wendall Balsiger
out of his early morning sleep to
borrow hia field glasses. They meant
to call on the Wilts at Grass Valley
but when they reached there they
found Mr. and Mrs. Wilt sUU in tie
"land of nod," and so drove on leav
ing them to pleasant dreams, little
knowing that they had missed a
short visit with former lone friends.
They crossed the high bridge over
Crooked river and stopped, as does
everything else, to toss pebbles into
the water far. far below. At 11
o'clock the party was at Bend. A
visit was paid to the wonderful lava
caves, but no one cared to explore
far into them. The way led on to
ward the south, much of the way
through a desolate timbered coun
try. During the first day out the
Balsigers had a hearty laugh at Mr.
Rietniann. It seems that Mr. Riet- i
man has a double and at one of the
camps this double was an unwel
come guest. They visited the Klam
ath reservation headquarters and
went to Crater lake. Here they
spent some time. Mr. Balsiger and
the two boys went down the steps
to the water's edge. They say, as
do many others, that it is one mile
down and seven miles back. Be
cause of the forest fires, the red
glow above and the deep blue of
the water below, the view of the
lake was one never to be forgotten.
During the night spent there, the
night prowlers made their usual vis
it overturning the garbage cans
and hunting for choice morsels.
From Crater lake the party drove
southwest to Medford. At Kirby
they called on Mrs. Inez Freeland,
Mrs. Omar Rietmann's mother.
Then on to Grants Pass and the
Oregon caves. It took two hours
time to go through the caves which
run back a distance of 1400 feet As
one enters he goes down 30 or 40
feet but as he passes deeper into
the cave he climbs upward until he
is 150 feet above the entrance.
There are many Strang formations,
some resembling vegetables, others
animals, etc., and at one place Neb
uchadnezzar may be seen on his
beautiful throne. From here our
party drove to Crescent City, Cal.,
which Mr. Balsiger says is a wide
awake, booming town. Both going
into and leaving Crescent City they
drove through the wonderful Red
wood forest From here their way
lay north through timbered and
open land with many well kept dai
ry farms. At Riverton they hunted
up their old friends, the Tucker
family. Mr. Tucker is still princi
pal of the Riverton school, this be
ing his fourth year. Miss Esther
Tucker is a student in Willamette
university this year. They contin
ued north to Reedsport then east
to Drain. At Eugene, the Univer
sity, and at Corvalhs, the Oregon
State college was of interest. At
Dayton they visited the old block
house now filled with relics, but
which one time stood in Grand
Ronde and was used by General
Sheridan. At Newberg they visited
the Ike Howard family and the Mc
Nay family. In Portland they call
ed on Mrs. Glock and Mrs. Wrex
Hicock. They returned home Tues
day, the day the smoke from the
forest fires was so dense. From
Multnomah Falls to Arlington they
were forced to use the lights on
their car, and state it was a weird
sight with the darkness of night
near the ground and the red glow of
the fire above. They found good
roads and good camping places all
of the way, but Mr. Balsiger states
that throughout the trip the lack of
moisture was noticeable every
Rev. Cecil Ahalt of Toppenish,
Wash., was here Thursday of last
week and assisted in the religious
services which hi3 wife was con
ducting in the Pentecostal hall.
From here he went to Baker to
