have reason to feel proud of this
superb achievement. It required
indomitable persistence and un

the doublo "J" squad a 3-to 0
victory over tho sturdy Hill
Military academy team Wednes
day afternoon on Multnomah
field. Tho first half of the gamo
was played in a steady down
pour, which soon Boaked tho
ball and players and made the
gridiron soft and treacherous.
Hill came within striking dis
tance of the Saints' goal twice
during the contest, once in the
first period and again in the last
lenod but couldn't put tho ball
across for the marker. James
John had the ball deep in the
Cadet'B territory several times
and three times during the game
tho Hill gridders were forced to
put up a stubborn defense on
their own goal line to keep tho
ball from being shoved across by
the James John backs.
Dick Girt, the double J half
back, came near adding six more
points to his team's score when,
with only a few seconds left to
play in the last period, ho cir
cled right end for a 30-yard run
but stepped out side one foot
from the goal line. The whistle
blew for the enu ot the game
before the teams could line up
for another play. Oregonian.
