Pendleton kicked off to La Grande,
and by fake end runs and one or two
other onslaughts thai Pendleton could
not solve, she worked the oval well
down the field. But when the ene
my's territory had been Invaded, the
enemy balked at further advancement.
Childers sent an unerring punt farther
down the enemy's region. Here for a
few moments Pendleton went to
pieces. It fumbled, but La Grande re-
overed, Pendleton held, and Childers
punted to dangero,usly near proximity
to the coveted region behind the vis
itor's goal. Once more Pendleton j

covered with precision that showed
training to follow the ball.
All this had transpired In the shad
ow of the goal posts. The rootert
went wild. But suddenly out shot n
closely knotted piece of humanity with
a ball closely tucked to him, and be
fore his advance was checked Childers
lay with the ball one yard from the
Pendleton goal. The crowd surged to
and fro in mad expectancy and wild
ecstasy. Three times La Grande sent
every ounce of power In Its 11 play
ers against that unpenetrable, wall and
as many times Pendleton, now col
lected ' and playing Its natural self
withstood the attacks. La Grande's
first opportunity to score had waned.
Qukkly and surely the ball again went
out of danger at the Impetus of the
Pendleton kti Iter. By slow degret s.
and for '.'.: )irst time, Pendleton crept
nearer the Ln Crande goal. Then displaying-the
fir?t real superiority over
Its worthy -vrh diminutive oppo
nents, it wor;itd a short forward pass
to the exact sp..i wher a fleet-footed

done La Grande proud," said he, while
the moleskin gladiators ' rested.
( have nothing but praise for evry one
of you," he concluded.
But In that second half. La Grand.:
was no longer the prevailing star on
the field. . Pendleton had pulled Itself
together, and for a time bored cruel
holes In La Grande's line. But even
though the locals showed fatigue and
the effects of the unmerciful trounc
ing received Intermittently when men
weighing 190 or 180 would hurl boys
weighing 40 and SO pounds less to the
ground with tejriflc force and telling
effect, Pendleton never got within the
25-yard line. In fact, this Is truo of
the whole game, except' when the lone
runner carried the ball oyer ' for , a
touchdown In the first half. True
enough, she got within striking dis
tance in the last half, and with the
jnerring leg and boot of Captain Ba
ker to rely on, It cost La Grande eight
joints. Two times, did Baker spin th(
pigskin between the goal posts, adding
four points to the score each time.
fn this Is solace for the losers as the
?an justly claim that It was by resort
!rig to the last ditch that the victors
made the difference In scores s
But La Grande was not entirely out
played far from such. Twice sht
?ot. within striking distance once

less close. Meyers missed his st
em pt at a drop kick, and later Chil
lers sent the ball wide of its mark it

But to a few, is especially mention
due. ' . .'
V. Bean at center and L. William
son stand out as especially brilliant
ights. Their aggressive work was e
feature of th game. Through Pen
dleton's right side they almost invar
iably chased themselves at will. It Is
such work that breaks up plays be
fore they start. Bean has a nose for
the ball. .In fact, where the ball is,
Bean Is, and when, after fumbles the
conglomerate mass of players . was
cleared away - It was generally Bean
who had possession. While William
son has not that happy faculty, his
work In breaking through was superb.
But close to these two, stand others.
Bean and Engies at tackle were ex
tremely active. They completed the

and Captain Meyers were staunch men
Meyers outclassed Bolton In getting
down under punts, but Bolton did bet

Geddes, perhaps, worked harder.
though had less opportunity to do the
spectacular than Grout had, for thi
Pendleton line was holding together
better in the last half than the first.
Behind the line, Childers was clearly
the brightest star. His tackling am".
skilful booting saved La Grande many
a yard. He followed the tackles anc
guards through holes splendidly.
Hamilton Rnd Carpy were seldom
called upon to carry the ball, and
hence could spend every energy on
breaking up Intereference. and form
ing secondary linos of defense. This
they did In a manner worthy of com
mendation and credit. It was seldom,
indeed, that the human catapult, Cap
tain Baker, could make more than his
length past the secondnry defense. It
