Water Transportation Growth
A new field will be open to the college
trained business man, if the program of
the Rivers and Harbors Congress which
was held in Portland hist week is carried
out. is the"word brought by Dean E. C.
ltobbins, of the school of Commerce who
was one of the representatives of the
university. Professor A. L. Lomax of
the foreign trade and exporting depart
ment of the school, and Earl Kilpatrick
of the Extension division also attended.
The congress was called by the state
chamber of commerce to discuss the ex
tension of water transportation from this
const to eastern portiC which on account
of the recent increase in freight rates is
considered extremely feasible. There
were representatives from nearly every
port on the Pacific coast ihom San
Francisco to the Canadian boundary, and
a number of the college schools of Com
merce were represented.
Regarding the attitude toward the uni
versity school of commerce Dean Rob
bins said. “Business men from all over
the Northwest showed a great interest,
and were of the opinion that there would
be many opportunities of the trained
man in commerce.”
The congress adopted a resolution <*u
taining favorable mention of collegiate
corremsial schools, and the university
school was given especial commendation.

He is now Dean of the College of Litera

His father straightened up from his task

Colin looked at the farm. He looked
at hjs father, a Seotcli-Cauadian -who had

in an American university. He therefore
graduated himself from both high school
and the University of Toronto with hon

TO BE BATTLE ROYA^
Whole Affair Is Fine, Pepful
Outpouring of Spirit of
‘’This is tho squarest mix.” So said
tile program of the underclass mix which
was put oil, or rather torn off, on Kin
caid field Saturday afternoon. Those
also are the words of Chief of Senio>
Cops “Slim’’ Crandall, who has been here
long enough to know something of mixes.
In fact everyone says it was square.
The mix began with what was termed
on the program “First Ambulance Call,”
but which meant the attendance and sing
ing contests, the events in which the girls
figured. Chief “Slim” had called his
forces to attention and after a prelimin
ary oration had marched them to the
front of the grandstand where they could
count all who stood up when each class
was called for. As a result of their count
the five points attendance award was
given to the Freshman..
Girls Forget to Clap.
|In the singing the Sophomore girls
were a little forgetful as to the use of
their hands. The Frosh clapped their
hands lustily and as a result won that
decision, raising their score to 15 points.
The yelling- contest between the “fresh
man lm.vs and the sophomore men’’, as
“Chief Sliai” expressed it. came next.
The Frosh yell leader worked, hard in
this even to make his little bunch of
rooters sound like a thousand but was
unsuccessful, and when Carl dipping drew
an “Oskie” from the rough throats of the
Sophomores, the Sophs scored 10 points.
“Stretcher Call" was what the program
called the event following. It was the
tug of war. This was an easy victory
for the rapper class. No sooner had the
starting gun been fired than the Sopho
mores began dragging their opponents
down the ladder. The Sophomores score
was now 25.
Tie-Up Is Tie.
In the tie-up contest 20 men on each
side were unsuccessful in their efforts
to manacle their opponents. The thir
tieth. however, on each side secured his
man, with the result that each side was
awarded seven and one-half points.
As the tie-up contest was going on the
field the sophomore stunt was coming
off. A Ting had bepn roped off in front
of the stand and there a terrific battle
was being fought between the sophomore

A forward pass from Jacobberger to

Multnomah club eleven on Kincaid field!
Saturday afternoon. With the ball on
Oregon’s 30-yard line, a carefully cal
culated pass coupled with the fast work
of Howard in outdistancing the backs and
ends of the visitors made the play one of
the prettiest ever seen on an Oregon
gridiron. The pass was for 20 yards and
Howard raced across the goal line with
out being tackled. Jacobherger converted
the try for goal into the additional one

minutes of the last quarter yet to be
played, a blocked punt attempted 'by
Hiatt, big fullback for the winged M
eleven, was recovered by Oregon. The
winning play followed. The game for the
most part was loosely played and was
naturally slow on account of the great
number of substitutions made by both
teams, and few sensational plays were
made by either side. g
Army of Subs Used.
Both Oregon and Multnomah used two
teams during the game and only two men
of the Oregon lineup stayed through the
entire game. These two were George
King, fullback, and “Spike” Leslie, left
tackle. Multnomah weakened after the
first half and Coach Dorman rased prac
tically his entire utility squad m sin at
tempt to stop the 0'i'egou onslaught.
Oregon made first downs four times dur
ing the first half to five times for tliej
visitors. In the second half of the game.
Oregon succeeded in making yardage for
first downs, seven times while the club
men made their yardage but once. Mult
nomah appeared to be troubled with the
lack of condition and although they were
going strong at the outset of the game,
the pace soon began to tell on them and
in the last half they were fighting des
perately to hold their own.
Multnomah Punts Often.
Multuoyiah was forced to 'resort to
punting during the last half to keep the
hall out of danger, and used this method
of defense seven times during the last
period. Hiatt, fullback for the visitors,
was their most consistent ground gainer
and tore off more yardage through the
Oregon line than any of the other backs
of the Multnomah eleven. Hiatt played
a baekfield position for Syracuse last
year and is a vqluablc asset to the Mult
nomah team. Weight* right half for the
clubmen, also played a good game and,
was second to Hiatt in making yardage.
Strowbridge. formerly of the Oregon
squad, was unable to fool bis former
teammates to any great extent ami was
usually dragged down without a groat
deal of gain. Tie is a fighter though, and
worked hard throughout the game. Welch
Diluted the Multnomah team very capably.
Anderson Performs Well.
“Stan’’ Anderson, who held down the
right end position for the visitors, of
course played a good game, well up to
his usual standard and mussed a number

across! had not “Stan” been in the game
