According to those who have seen the University of Oregon football team in practice, that aggregation should have a walkway over the University of Washington team. Most of the Oregon stars have returned and a number of new men are on the roll. Shy Huntington, mainstay of the backfield, returned and brought his brother, Hollis, with him.
