down the scrimmage work to a
few minutes each evening,
which has retarded to a certain
extent the development of the
team. Since the squad is com
posed of men who work at 5out-
side occupation during the sum
mer vacation, the players are in
good physical condition at' the
opening of school, ' consequently
the lack of scrimmage work does
not work the . hardship it other
wise would.
Coach H. I. Sherman played for
four years at the University of
Indiana, holding , down the posi
tion of quarter and -fullback.
He is a thorough , student of the
game, and the team is develop
ing rapidly under his leadership.
The Indiana style of play differs
to a considerable extent from
the Michigan form, under which
.the team has been. . coached for
two seasons by , Archie Hahn,
which has necessitated a consid
erable amount of preliminary
work. ' " V

Editor GAZETtH-TiMES: Since
there is some talk "of a-bridge
across the Willamette at Corval-
is, a suggestion regarding it
may not be inappropriate. ; Glas-1
gow bridge in Glasgow, Scotland, 1
is a low stone bridge without a
draw, under which no ordinary
steamer could pass at high tide.
Yet, by the simple device of hav
ing their smoke-stacks; hinged,
the river steamers pass under it
easily by momentarily lowering
their stacks on (their hinges toa
horizontal position.! . Now; why
not hive tne Willamette "river
boats adopt the " same ' device,
which would hardly cost more
than $50 f oreach; instead of put
ting every county all , along the
river to. the enormously greater
expense of raising the bridges or
building and maintaining draws?
While I am about it, permit
me also to sajr that while I think
the state of Oregon is in the

A majority of the County Court
is in favor of a bridge being
built across the Willamette here.
The only member not thoroughly
convinced is Mr. Hawley. It is
understood that he is not neces
sarily opposed but up to date he
has been inclined to feel that
the cost might be too great.
Messrs. Woodward and Smith
feel that a bridge can be erected
for much less than most people
suppose, nence are m tavor or
pushing the preliminaries to the
extent of getting a definite and
clear-cut" idea" about - the cost,
and then submitting the matter
1 to,,the pgople
Judge "Woodward thinks ' the
people should be permitted to
vote on this matter, though if
public 'sentiment wereunivers
ally in favor he might not find
such action necessary. ;
In line with the Court's dis
position,- one Sears, a Seattle en
gineerand bridge builder, will
be in Corvallis Thursday to join
