In La Grande high school circles last
Thursday afternoon and the moleskins
have been shelved for future stars of
gridiron lore. Along with the "thir
ty" curtain, discussion of the years'
work is appropqs. Going through a,
season with a total of six points scor
ed by opponents is an enviable record,
a record that betokens alertness and
adamant defense for no team so per
fect but what is oftentimes scored up
on by the fluke route. Enterprise
tears the distinction of being the only
eleven capable to mussing the grass
tack of La Grande's fortifications and
It was unfortunate that the Enterprise
eame -was scheduled before Coach
Caylor bad time to Impart to his pro
teges the science of tackling. Enter
prise was the most dangerous team
played this year and the match was
scheduled -when La Grande was loose
Jn her defense. Had the Enterprise
game later it is doubtful if La
Grande's goal line would ,have been
crossed this year.
Cohorts of the La Grande eleven
have Justifications la swelling, their
chests with pride and gloatation for
from almost every angle the career ot
the team was surpaaslve ot hopes as
certained by the most sanguine. Sni
der, Cusey and Covpe Mere new men
The first two had never been inside of
football trousers, yet. became formid
able both' on aggressive and defensive
before the season was over. Few
downs were caled last without either
Snider or Corpe breaking through
Casey, too, caught that fundamental
requisite of a lineman breaking
through and stopping plays before
they got under way. Dohneukamp
the center rush, was the bulwiuk of
the middle Hue and played a luminary
and powerful game throughout the
season.' He has developed speed, is
accurate of tackles and is a tricky and
foxy fellow, continually keeping the
opposing center 'guessing. ."Bohnnle"
was down with the ends under 75 per
per cent of the punts during the year.
Grlmmlt, diminutive and young,
playing the first year in football, held
bis own with the best and won much
admiration during the season by his
bulldog tenacity In matching strength
with men far his superior in weight.
La Grande's ends were the envy of
all coaches who saw them work. Gor
rlty was constantly on the extreme
wing on one side, developing speed
and craftiness in handling forward
passes aa the season progressed, until
en Thursday be became a veritnble
bad man In handling punts, forward
passes and messing things for the op
posing team's efforts at forward pau
ses. Ills work Thursday classes him
as the peer end of Union, linker and
Wallowa counties and probably Uma
tilla though tho writer Is not versed
on Umatilla players. Tho other flank
position has been handled alternately
by Couch and Crawley .both playlnc
their first games In a regular team.
Couch, c-specitilly, was now to tho
game, and after discovering the little
trick that goes with tackling become
a clever end, meeting the requirement
of a present day flank man in handling
onside kicks and receiving heave.
Crawley throws "prp and g'nper Into
ms niaying, tacKiing viciously and
BpecIMly In the Enterprise prime was
he successful In smashing Interefr
ertee and nailing his man. Lack of
.rordupols Is ' the youn rater's nry
stumbling Mock to attain fame In
Two cleverly executed drop kicks
from Bolton's toe, on the 15 yard line
once and the 30 yard line once, cou
pled with a touchdown earned by a
series of forward plunges " and line
bucking, won for La Grande from El
gin last Thursday on the local grid
iron, score 11 to 0. Because three oth
er touchdowns were not socred was
pimply because Elgin's stonewall de
fense on the one and two-yard line
would not crumble. Elgin's eleven is
rejuvenated and while its offensive Is
still weak, it did put up a ratling
defense on its own goal line at three
In the second quarter Boltdn lifted
two beautifully executed drop kicks
between the goal posts. Several oth
er, attempts were made but with no
success, principally because of the
heavy wind blowing across the field.
Punting was difficult except when the
team had the wind to fill its sails
consequently alternate quarters saw
one punter getting long spirals away
and the other unable to register niorw
than ten or 15 yeards.
' Holton, Garrity, ..Reynolds, Ralston
and Lot tea took turn about at appro
priating long gains. The first drop
kick came when Garrity Intercepted a
forward pass on the 3," yeard line and
raced to the 15 yard line with It. From
there Bolton dropped It over the bar.
On the kickoff following from the ten
ter of the field, Bolton carried the ball
20 yards on the return, but a penalty
schools. So It Is seen that with a
line made up of only two veteran men
La Grande was indeed -.successful.
Reynolds at the quarter position
bids well to emulate his older broth
er us a pilot. He runs in punts espe
cially well, dodges well and shows
much better headwork in handling the
team than any player he lias faced
this yeur. In Captain Lottes, Bolton
and Ralston the team was well sup
piled with backs and .the loss of at
Jeast three of the back field next year
will bo a serious blow. Everyone of
them have tenacity in staylilg on their
feet In the thickest of the fray. They
dodge, tackle, plunge and skirt ends
with finish, und, individually and col
lectively, are the most finished and
versatile back field in the three coun
All these virtues radiate principal
ly rrom "Foe" Caylor. One can't get
blood out of a turnip very handily but
Ciiylor has gotten football out or an
ulmost red corpuscle squad this year.
Ninety-six variations of his open at
tack were taught his cohorts and they
knew them well. He taught his men
ahove all how to tackle and how to
tarry the ball against a tackier. New
football Is a badly misused term, but
it can fittingly be applied to the pro
duction sprouting from the lessons In
footbnlldom rooted Into the squad
nylor'g Tersatlle brain. OUl
style football with Caylor has the
same relation that a duck has to wa
ter, but he discarded all that which
whs old and Required that which was
new, and. above nil, was not only able
to devise the newest but could Impart
It to his students.
Fortunate In that no Injuries were
Incurred, resultant of much physical
development of the men, mnrklns the
return to the fold of good graces o
Baker, showing a wonderful tartety
of the newest football,. anJ without a
and a fumble cost dearly, and from
the 45 yard line La Grande punted ov
er fof a touchback. On the klckout
Elgin relinquished the ball on the 35
yard line and from there Bolton again
hoisted it over the goal post. The
quarter ended after Lottes, Ralston:
Reynolds, Bolton and Lottes had ac
vanced the sphere 29 yards on flashy
In the third down La Grande scored
its touchdown. 'Lottes booted the ball
over the Elgin goal twice on the kick
off, forcing touchback, and a mo
ment later one of the longest forward
passes of the year was negotiated to
Garrity who went 45 yards on a beau
tiful execution. Lottes, Ralston and
Lottes carried "the ball over the re
maining eight yards for a touchdown
in three efforts.
In the same quarter Elgin held for
downs on its two yard line following
long gains by Garrity, Reynolds, Gar
rity and Bolton. '
One long run by Bolton, one by Rey
nolds of 15 yards, a forward pass of
10 yards t,o Couth, a 15 yard negotia
tion by Lottes, 10 yards by Garrity
and an Immense amount of punting in
the, gathering darkness were the fea
tures of the last quarter. Elgin held
for down on the 10 yard line again in
Punting was impossible except with
the gale but Ralston sent his spirals
lower, consequently covering more

than Flagg did. j
Dodging and shedding tacklers, en
abling La Grande backs to tear off
long runs were features of the game.
Lottes electrified the Turkey day aud
ience at the opening of the game by
taking a forward pass and going 27
yards to the four yard line when El
gin held for downs. Bolton, Garrity,
Lottes, Reynolds and Ralston were
the ones who were showered with the
most applause, though the linemen
came in for theirs on various occa
sions. Except in places the game was
snappy and thrilling because of the
many long gains through broken

Wording Slightly Different but Mean-

New basketball rule books have ar
rived and fortunately for the fans they
will not have to lea.rn them all over
again. As far as the average specta
tor is concerned there are no percei

over last. Only In one respect is there
a material change. Previously it has
been deemed a foul to carry the ball
out of bounds; this year such an 'act
merely gives the ball to the opposing
side. There are a dozen or more
change In the wording and phraseol
ogy but In no instance does the mean
ing and Intent of the clauses change
over last year though there is a dis
agreeable conflict over the dribbling
rules which "the committee aimed to
alleviate, but made worse. However,
