What Newspapers say About the
. . Game Honors for Steckk's j
- Iu Corvallis, there is- universal
satisfaction with the resnlt ot the
big football game in Portland last
Monday. It is conceded without
exception that, because of the op
portunity that it -gave the team to
show ' :ita qualities, the , game
was extremely desirable. even in
spite of the fact that it was an after-season-
match. As a matter of
fact, nb game ever played' in Ore
gon has attracted so "much atten
tion in the newspapers 'and " other
wise. The, lightning play of
Steckle' s boys which enabled them
to sweep the Multnomah giants off
their feet and score against them
in the first half was a revelation ev
en to experts of the ' game. The'
powers of the college lads engaged
and the star character of - their
playing was another source of com
plete surprise," which although it
has been known to local people for
a long . .tme, - was neves?-befcre
shown in the presence of so great
an audience "of football critics. The
game has stamped the Aggies as
one of the most powerful elevens on
the Coast, for it is pointed out that
Multnomah was -never scored
against so many times .on her own
field, and that she has in all these
years been scored against but once
by a college elevens and that a
number of years ago when the
Portlanders were not so strong as
now. Thus, when Multnomah re
cently played Stanford the game
was a tie. It was played on Stan
ford field, after the Portlanders'
long and wearisome, trip to Califor
nia. The Multnomah team then
was not nearly so strong as now.
Lonergan, a star half back ' in the
game against O AC, was not . with
the Multnomahs at - all. v Neither
was Stow, the crack tackle, ; nor
McMillan the great strategist But,
more than all, Stott, ; one of the
brightesS stars in the play- against
the Aggies was not with Multno
mahs, but actually played against
them as a member of the Stanford
team. Yet, 'Multnomah ' played
Stanford on the latter's own-ground
under these handicaps a tie game.
OAC went against Multnomah on
the latter' s own peculiar field and
with Stott, Lonergan, Stow and
McMillan in the Portland line-up',
and lost only by a turn of a goal
kick; scoring two touchdowns on
the Portlanders which Stanford
could not do and facing a consoli
dated combination of strength
such as a handf ull of college lads
never before went against in the
Northwest. The fact that Steckle' s
boys were able to score at all against
suth a grouping of stars is the fact
that gives them character and
standing as a team, unquestioned
A very large factor in the new
honors for the OAC lads, is Dr.
A. C. Steckle. He is" the wizard
that fashioned the plays and taught
his men how to execute them. He
did his work silently, quietly and
unostentatiously. When the team
was all completed, he knew what
its performance would be, but he
boasted about it to no man. All
the time he taught his pupils foot
ball, he enjoined them to be best
in their studies and best morally
and physically. He early won
their highest respect and deepest
esteem, and that which, it was his.
will for them to do, became their
wish and purpose, to do. With
cosummate skill and infinite pa
tience, he planned for them, and
the finished product was as he had
conceived it should be. Lightning
movement in their work was what
he planned, and on Multnomah
field, Root, Abraham.Williams and
Rinehart, of the back field showed
their aptness as pupils. Aggress
ive and irresistible offense to win
the game in its inception . was his
theory, and at Portland, Cooper,
Emily, Bower, Bundy, Walker,
Dunlap, Ray Walker, Steiwer and
the wizard himself, made practice
of the plan. Without doubt. Dr.
Steckle is one of the best coaches
in the West, best from every stand
point in which a man should be
considered for the position.
One more factor in the case, is
Fred C. Stimson, manager of the
team. Early in the season, he
took up the work of manager,
where Captain Bert Pilkington,
for lack' of time had been compelled
to lay it down. There had been a
splendid beginning, and. the ..new
manager was exactly the boy to
carry it on to a splendid ending,
With infinite toil and with the wis
dom of one of far more experience
and 5'ears, lie carried on the vex
atious and exhausting details - of
the work. He allowed no obstacle
to block his way or barrier to stand
in the way pf success. He clothed
the players with ample parapher-
nalia and supplied. their( needs to

leading place in "his classes and. give

brilliant, success financially, as well
as otherwise. " Mn Stimson is a
