football men left for home by the
1.20 train Sunday. They'had along
their mascots, a bulldog and the
bear they purchased of the Club
people. At the station both the
dog and the bear seemed anxious to
scrap each other, with the net re
sult that bystanders had much to
be amused over. At one time the
bear got loose and the chase for his
recapture was lively, involving all
the members of the team, the coach
and other folks. The start was fi
nally tnady in safety, but either the
dog or the bear will have come out
of a scrap duly licked, before the
town of Pullman is reached.

Eugene Register: The stu
dent's executive committee of the
University is breathing normally
for the first time in years. Debts
of long standing and aggregating
nearly $1,200 have been a heavy
handicap on all student enterprises
for several years. A firm determi
nation to meet these obligations has
resulted in a payment of $1,000 on
this account. Tbe balance will be
carried till the fall of 1906, at
which time the Associated Students
hope to clear up all indebtedness
This $1,000. payment will throw
the various departments of stu

practically a self-sustaining basis.

The temperance meeting Sun
day evening in the Congregational
church was a very pleasant gather
ing. One of the unique features
was the singing of the united male
quartettes of the M. E. and Con
gregational choirs. The double
quartette sang four thrilling selec
tions that harmonized splendidly
with the subject of the discourse.
Mr. Colvin, Intercollegiate Secre
tary of the temperance societies, in
a forceful manner presented the
claims of the . temperance crusade
upon the young men and women of
our land. The meeting was held
under the auspices of the temper
ance club of the college.
There was an incident involving 1
more or less of pathos, in one of the
late trials. It is worth mention,
here because of the value it may be
to future witnesses in Corvallis
courts. A mere boy in years, and
equally boyish otherwise, was the
prosecuting witness. He went on
the stand and told the story of how
he went to the club, and of how he
was there served with beer. On
cross examination the defense got
the witness to say that the beer he
drank at the club was beer that he
had Kline to order for him from
Portland, and that it was his own
and not club beer that he was drink
Taking up the matter on re-direct
examination the prosecution soon
sprung a surprise on the witness and
created a sensation in the court
room. First, the witness was
made to admit that the beer was
not as he testified, bottle beer, but 1
draught beer. Then he was driven '
into a tangle, and forced to acknow
ledge that Kline had not ordered
any beer for him from Tortland,
but that the beer he drank was pur
chased from the club authorities.
Terrible as was the situation of the
witness, he was next forced to ac
knowledge on re-direct examination
"yes; I ' perjured myself
when 1 said I got Kline to order
that beer fiom Portland." Worse
still was the effect, when In answer
to a final question from the district
attorney, the witness acknowledged
that Mike Kline had come to him
before the trial and requested him
to swear in court that instead of
buying the beer at the club as was
actually the case, he had ordered it
brought from Portland.
As stated above, the witness is
only a boy in years as well as in
mind, and when he left the witness
stand a flood of tears streamed
from his eyes. Mike Kline's rascal
lty in mducine mm to swear to a
lie in court was painfully manifest
The boy., however is not the only
person Kline has -tried to prevail
upon to perjure himself. When
Kline labored with another person
on the same errand the answer was,
"I won't swear to a lie."
Thus, it appears that the master
of-the "moral welfare and intellect

The OAC football men are to
leave tomorrow evening for Calif
ornia. to play the University of

the extra men taken along, two
substitutions are possible for any

arise, Coach Steckle and Manager

probably Mr. Williams, father of
Floyd, will complete the party
They will go to Albany on the six
o'clock train tomorrow evening,

If the programme as at present
planned is carried out, they will
