MOON WILL HIDE TONIGHT
Satellite to Be in Total Eclipse From
11 to 2a28 'o'clock.
If the sky is clear tonight, a total
eclipse of the moon will be visible from
Portland. It will begin about 11 o'clock
and last for more than two hours and a
half. The schedule, as prepared for San
Francisco, and which will vary but little
with that for Portland, announces that
the shadow of the earth will begin to
move upon the moon at one minute after
11 o'clock tonight. The entire face of
the moon will be covered by 12:03 o'clock,
and the shadow will begin to leave at
1:25 o'clock tomorrow morning. The
eclipse will end at 2:28 o'clock.
This will be the second total eclipse of
the moon this year, both visible from
Portland. Fear is felt that the moon
during the time of the eclipse will be
hidden by clouds. . ,

Oregon struggled bravely against Wash.
Ington in the big Thanksgiving game on
Denny Field this afternoon, but the wear-

team and won the contest and the

ship by a score of 20 to 6.
In justice to the Oregonlans it may be
said that they fought with bulldog de
termination and pluck from whistle to
whistle, and in many respects made an
equal showing with the victors, but an
ability to execute the forward pass,
coupled with a strong defense against
similar plays by Oregon tells the story of
High Praise for Oregon.
The game itself will go down into the
football history of the Northwest as one
of the Cleverest and hardest contests on
record and while Washington won a bril
liant victory, Oregon's showing was such
that her players won high praise from
even the most enthusiastic Washington
The game was replete with sensational
features and the 8000 spectators were lib
eral in their applause. The work of
Eakins, the Washington punter, was bril
liant, and his long spirals would have
made Washington score even larger had
not Latourette and Taylor, the Oregon
backs made brilliant catches and clever
runs through broken fields.
The work of these two Oregonlans and
the brilliant performances of Plnkham
Oregon's left tackle, were features of the
game that appealed to those who appre
ciate good football.
Latourette Shines Brightly.
It was Latourette who made a sensa
tional quarterback run of 15 yards which
gave Oregon her only score, and it was
Pinkham who repeatedly broke through
Washington's forward line and nailed the
opposing backs for big losses. Taylor's
work was equally conspicuous and the
Washington campus is ringing with the
praises of Oregon's great trio. Captain
Dudley Clark, of Oregon, also played
brilliant game and did some effective
punting, but a weak ankle prevented him
from doing his best, and Coach Forbes
removed him from the game in the mid
die of the second half. Clark played to
day against heavy odds and remained In
the game only because of his sheer pluck
