lug that are beyond fault, In the girls
department are specimens of dressmaking,
ornamental sewing, and cooking. The
whole booth is tastily arranged, and is an
honor to the Indian school people.
The above article is copied from the
Portland Oregonian, and since it was
written we can add that the school harness
exhibit as well as the Literary Exhibit
captured the first prize.
That makes five blue ribbons which our
harness department has won at the Oregon.
State Fair during the past five years, and
speaks well for Instructor Thompson and
his apprentices who did the work.
Chemawa is proud to keep to the front
in its industrial and liter ary work, as is
evidenced by the exhibition of work dis
played at the State Fair.
Foot Ball Notes.
The football season opened last week
when active, practice and hard earnest
work began.
The candidates have been training long
enough to enable one to judge somewhat of
their ability and all the new players have
shown up well in their preliminary prac
tice. Most of the work done during the week
has been of rudimentary na'ture, such as
passing and starting various plays, punt
ing, .catching punts, tackling, and the ends
running down the field on kicks.
It is the ambition and desire of manager
Brewer to put in the field the fastest and
strongest team that has ever represented
this school and as a result the following
old players may be seen in in the daily line
up: Sanders, Young, Neafus, Scott, La
Flumboise, Williams, and Decker, The
new candidates, who have shown pluck
and speed may be mentioned: Smith and
Frank Decker, of last year's second team,
also Booth who so suceessf ully filled the
position of fullback for the Pujallup team
last season.
Palmer, Chas. Decker, Bensell, Phillip
Williams, and other promising players will
he filling as soon as the busy season is over
The first game of the season will be
s played at Forest Grove with the Pacific Uni"
versity. It will be an interesting game as
Chemawa has not met them for several sea
sons ;
McFadden, 'varsity end at Stanford for
the past two years is coaching the univer
sity bovs and from the reports at hand we
feel certain that they will resume their
former position in the athletics sports of
the northwest.
The following is the shedule for the sea
son, other games are being arranged as
fast as satisfactory dates can be made.
Pacific University Oct. 12 at Forest Grove
Multnomah " 14 " Portland
Oregon State University Oct. 20 at Eugene
Multnomah Nov. 9 th. at Portland.
Haskell is playing an important part
not only solving the Indian Problem by
literary and industrial education but also
through the medium of athletic sports.
We judge by her football schedule for
the season of 1901 that she has come to
stay on the gridiron, Among the big
games which she has, can be seen the
n imes of the following large institutions,
Universities of Minnesota, Missouri, and
Nebraska. This is very encouraging to
her western admirers.
Carlisle seems to have started another
successful football season. She has al
ready downed and scalped the first team
thut appears on her schedule for this sea
son. We have no report as to the merits
of the game but we judge that she must
have playod a snappy game as it resulted
in a score of 28-0 in her favor.
From the latest gossip in the sporting
world we learn that the Multnomah ag
gregation of football playeis will be coach
ed by Woodruff formerly of the University
of Pennsylvania a.-si&ted by McMillian who
has been coaching the Stanford team.
The Uuversity of Oregon team will have
many new players in her line-up this sea
son and among the old veterans who will
not be able to pny this season much to the
disappointment of the partisans of ''Old
Oregon" are Payne the fullback and Hale
who played in the freshman team.
Smith of California, ot herwise known as
"Locomotive Smith' w ill coach the team.
