GRID SPEED SOUGHT in COACHES Light Togs Replace Durable tquipment ot Uld GOSSIP OF CONFERENCE ffotre Same-Southern California Encounter Attracting Much j Attention on Const Speed, speed, speed. Ever more speed Is the cry of (rid coaches the country over. With the intensive development of the passing Sims and open piny, coaches are realising that speed Is the most Im portent requisite of a football player. Heavy, powerful backs sat on the bench this fall, while nimble little fellows with mercury-shod Xeet cavorted In their places. Here at Oregon has been shown the Importance of speed. Jones, a really great line plunder, and Vitus, a strong running halfback but not a shifty one, were held in reserve by McEwan during most of the year, and light men such as Speed Burnell and Whippet Ord were used for ground-gaining. The lightweights gained plenty of territory, too, and demonstrated that If the holes are there, speed Is the greatest asset In finding them. Another development of this frame has been the introduction or light toga designed to furnish the least possible resistance to speed. Oregon adopted llglit pants for the O. A. C. game last Saturday, with pads taped to the body Instead of attached. The heavy woolen socks were discarded for cotton ones.' When Syracuse took the field against Columbia in the annual Thanksgiving day game at the Polo grounds yesterday, old-time football stars, whose raiment consisted ot padding and more padding, rubbed their eyes In amazement. Coach Pete Reynolds had his men attired In oilskin pants and thin flesh-colored socks. i Man Has Misfortune ! The "Folly Girl" garb is the latest evolution of the football unl- -' form from the protective to the speed stags, this season. Knute Rockne clothed his team In silk pants for greater speed. Many other big league mentors have fallen In line. The most Interesting spectator at the Polo grounds. If he could be relieved of his engagement for the game against the Nebraska eleven, probably would be Captain Frank Brlante, fullback of the New York university team. In one of his Initial plunges the first time he sported his new silk trousers, he was saved from embarrassment only by the fast work of his team mates when Carnegie Tech's line demonstrated that silk pants are built for speed and not durability. e The game attracted great attention on the Pacific coast Is the University of Southern Callfornla-.. Notre Dame contest billed for Los Angeles, December 4. It faces the prospect of being sold out three weeks in advance. To date 71,000 tickets have been placed in the hands of cash customers. As high as $26 was paid for a pair of pasteboards for the Stanford-U. S. C. tilt a few weeks ago. A mass of 79,-000 saw the Thundering Herd lose to Pop Warner's Cardinals, 13-12. Betting on the Notre Dame battle, writes Dean Snyder from Los Angeles, has installed the Rockne :even a i to 1 favorite. Such odds will find plenty of takers. Three out of six sports writers there say such odds are silly and that It Is an oven money bet The undefeated Irishmen look mighty good from ! this distant point of view. I ' ... Two possible all-Amerlcan stars will be opposed to each other when , Notre Dame meets the Trojans. ' Christy Flannlgan is the pride of j the Rockne camp, and defeated Army single-handed in a recent game by dashing S3 yards to a touchdown. He Is a long, gangling .runner with almost Incredible ; speed. "Devil May" Kaer has tlie earmarks of being the greatest ball advancer developed on the Pacl- fio slope In many years. In the Oregon Aggie game at Portland armistice day, Kaer, with his elusive hip twist and devastating i speed, ran the Orangemen ragged. ivaers running has featured every big Trojan game this fall. He Is the second high scorer on the coast this fall, and led last year. .. ... i Wild Bill Kelly of Montana, Butchers Attention A new model 55 Standard Elcctrto Meat Chopper for $180.00 cash.

One Jackie , Central Pre. Photo . Montana University's powerful football team boasts two "hall pint" halfbacks who, incidentally are twins. They are Bill and Ted Hodges. Their size is indicated graphically in the photo above, which shows them being "mothered" under the wings of Lou Vierhus, ?20-pound tackle. The jolly photographer refused Jojake a fliei cs to which of the twins is Bill and which is Ted whose line did nothing for him yesterday, has been recently cast ing langoroua glances at the pro fessional game, but has changed recently and now states that he will attend either West Point or Annapolis next' fall. If he does, he should come close to securing all-Amerlcan recognition. In the meantime he will play In the East-West shrine game to be held In San Francisco New Tear's day. 'Of course,- If some promoter could show me real money in pro fessional football, states the dashing Kelly, "I might be forced to accept, but I would not think of playing professional foot'ii tur the ham and eggs so rr .ny players receive. I don't bla'.ie Ernie Nev-ers and George WIU-n for making their decisions. They . real money to play." Kelly thinks Farkhill of Wash ington State Is the best end in the Pacific Northwest, and picks Dick-erson and Dixon ot the Oregon Aggies as the best tackles. Walter-skirchen of Gonzaga is the leading guard in this section, according to Kelly, who likes Ostrom of Mon tana for center, and Meeker, Maple, Rohwer and Schulmerich for his backs. He hasn't seen Wetzel and Kerns ot Oregon, who have been outstanding in every fray. TO BE ON LIST OF SPOHTS AT 0- fl. C. OREGON AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE, CORVALLIS, Nov. 25. (Special) O. A. C.'s prospective rowing course on the Willamette will make a better course than many of the great rowing schools have at the present time, according to Ky Ebrlght, head crew coach of the University of California, who recently visited the campus looking over rowing conditions. Ebrlght was accompanied by A. E.

KM Junior varsity crew coach at California. The course Is not barred by obstructions at any place and Is sufficiently wide and deep for rowln. Thcee tentative locations for a boat house and a float were recommended by the Uear coach. The Aggies are favored by the nearness ot the course, says Ebrlght. as the Bears must travel eight miles to reach their course on the estuary. The sheila donated by California will not be used for several months, as the Aggie material must first learn the technique of stroke and balance. To accomplish this, a scow will be used for which plans are being drawn up at the University ot Washington, and will .be sent upon completion. Ebrlght was impressed by the many rangy men on the campus, and made the statement that the prospects for rowing at O. A. C. are as bright as at any university on the coast where rowing Is already recognized as a sport. INSURE WITH HENRY TROMP.
