OAC is to Play a Christmas Game
With Multnomah Proposed , .
" Excursion. '. :
.After a long series of delays, it
has 3een finally determined ; that
the OAC football team is to play,
the Christmas game with Multno
mahs. - An agreement for the game
was reached - by Manager Sttmson
of OAC add Manager Frank Wat
kins of Multnomahs late Thursday
afternoon, all of the necessary
arrangements having been agreed
upon. A handsome offer : to the
OAC men for playing the game
was conceded by the Multnomah
manager, and as a result the boys
will be able to recoup their trea
sury which suffered earlier in the
season by the withdrawal ,of three
teams that had scheduled games
with OAC. ' -'
The game will happen on Mon
day December 26th. Christmas
falls on Sunday, and the game
could not be scheduled for Saturday
for the reason that on that day
everybody in Portland will be oc
cupied with ' Christmas purchases,
and there would be no time tor the
public to attend the game. The
following Monday is a legal holi
day, and everybody will be idle.
The same conditions will -largely
prevail in Corvallis, ' and the later
date will afford Corvallis buiiness
men and others . freedom to go to
Portland and. see the game.
Among the students there is already
talk of a popular excursion in
which everybody can go to the
metropolis to see the . OAC lads
reel off the best football they can
play to the Multnomah warriors.
Nearly all the OAC stars will be
in prime condition for the game,
arid a spirited contest, with the
orange colors strongly defended, is
certain to be the result.

The Hulburts and Their First Shoot
Number Killed in one day 487.
our Hundred and eighty seven
ducks, shot by five hunters, was
the result of a days' shooting across
the Willamette from Corvallis' last
Tuesday. The shooters were the
Hulburt Brothers, whose perform'
ances in duck shooting in - other
seasoas have attracted wide atten
tion. With them Tuesday as fifth
man, was O. D. Turner, a cousia
who came down from Pendleton,
to take part in the sport- About
half the ducks bagged, were mal
lards, and all were in unusully fine
condition. Most of the bag was
shipped to .Portland, but a portion'
was sold in Corvallis and Albany.
The shooting was done in baited
ponds, of which the Hulburtjs
maintained four on their farms
across the Willamette. Feeding
began two weeks ago, and sack af
ter sack of wheat was put in the
ponds for the ducks to feed on.
Livejdecoys were used, and were
found to be of much value in draw
ing game into the ponds. For a
time tne decoys are kept tied and
after they get used to the good
feed and the place, the tying is
not necessary, and they remain af
ter being set at liberty.
On Tuesday, the shooting began
at daybreak and continued through
out the day. When the ducks
were gathered up and counted the
aggregate was found to le 487, the
largest bag ever taken at the ponds
with the same number of guns en
gaged. It is the plan as soon as
there is more water, of which at
present there is a scarcity, to shoot
twice a week at the ponds.
In That Kind of Theatre Leading
Lady Wanted for Big Show.
Without the small boy, the
world were a blank. His are the
busiest hands on the globe. The
thing that fails to pass under his
observation and engage his wits
are not wrth thinking about. A
number of him have conjured up
a new enterprise, 1 aimed at allevia
tion of the.-financial stringency 1
among the Corvallis poor. There
is a roomy barn down at the Wood
cock home, and in one end the
kids have fitted up a stage. A 12
year old among them has rigged
up a lot of wires in such a way
that a first class foot light effect is
produced. Little by little, the
stage scenery is being worked int
place by small hands, all with vast
patience and much ingenuity.
A big opening for the new thea
tre was planned. ' It was thought
best to arrange for the grand event
about Christmas time. One of the
kids was to play the cornet between
acts as a specialty. Another was
to appear in clog and other dances.
The bow of promise was full of all
sorts of beautiful tints and colors,
and things were going on swim
mingly. But trouble came. - A play was
selected, and search began for a
cast. A leading lady was needed.
and that is where the woe came.
In the quietude and sanctity of
the family home one evening, one
of the boys called his sister out and
offered her the part.' "But where
are you going to produce this play?"
Why m our theatre in Wood
cock's barn," replied the young
brother. "Well;.! am not going
to take part in any play to be given
in a cow stable." replied the young
lady sister. . ,
The result is that there is a
temporary standstill in the affairs
of the new theatre. The brother
thinks the sister has not that deep
and abiding Christianity that she
ought to have, for it was explained
to her that the proceeds of the show
were to be given to poor old Mrs.
as a Christmas present. It is
hoped a leading lady may yet be
secured, for the boys deserve to
prosper in their enterprise
