"It was easier for Multnomah to
buck the officials thanito buck O.
A. C. line." That is what a well
known commercial man said in
town yesterday. He is a member
of the Multnomah club, but is em
phatically on the side of O. A. C.
in the differences over Saturday's
game, which he saw. "I don't blame
Multnomah for bucking the officials'

Of the play, there little of in
terest to tell. OAC had by far the
stronger team, and in a fair battle
would have beaten Multnomah by
three touchdowns. When Mult
nomah's trick plays had been work
ed till the students knew them, tbe
club men could no longer make
yardage. Of offense at straight
