1932: UO students set to vote — are they the Webfoots, Pioneers, Trappers, Yellowjackets or Lumberjacks?


Jan. 14, 1932

University of Oregon students will go to the polls tomorrow.

At stake is the athletic nickname for their school's teams.

The question is whether to continue being known as the Webfoots.

Other monikers on the ballot are: Pioneers, Trappers, Yellowjackets and Lumberjacks.

Room for write-in names also will be included.

Overwhelmingly, UO students will vote to keep Webfoots.

Meanwhile, at Oregon State, the Orangemen are about to open their home basketball league campaign with a game against the Idaho Vandals.
