Albany, a bustling; city "80 miles up
the 'Willamette Valley, has been nom
inated the football capital of Oregon.
This afternoon Its 5000 population will
suddenly swell to nearly 15.000, for the
two great Institutions, the University
or Oregon and the Oregon Agricultural
College, are to re-cement a shattered
friendship by battering each other
around the gridiron in the biggest game
of the year in the Northwest.
The contest will be for the state col
lege championship, and Albany, being
a communion point between Eugene.
Corvallls. Portland and other cities of
the valley, will be easily accessible to
the thousands of enthusiasts. Close to
1200 will pack aboard the steam and
electric trains from' Portland alone,
while special trains will be run from
the two college towns.
A ancles' Ckancea Raited High.
There are several features which dif
ferentiate this game from Its pre
decessors. In the. first place the Ore
Ron Aggies appear to stand a good
chance of winning this year, whereas
they have registered only one previous
win since 1897, when McAllister. Bo
dine, Elgin, Walters. Holgate and that
squad of busters defeated Oregon 26
to 8 and Washington 16 to 0. That one
victory, a 4-to-0 affair, is chalked up
on the records of 1907, when Carl Wolff
kicked a placement.
Again, the rival teams have not met
since 1910, when the Aggies broke off
athletic relations as a result of mix-
ups between students after their 12-to-0
walloping. Last year no game was
played, and there appeared slight hopes
for a meeting this Fall until the scores
of last Saturday's games were hung
out on the line. Then the Aggies de
cided that this waa the psychological
time to masticate their hated foe, even
though concessions had to be made,
while Oregon made up Its mind to take
the drowning man's chance to make up
for Its rather disappointing showing
at one gulp.
Both Camps Hare Talea of Woe.
Anyway, the teams will march upon
the field at 2:20 this afternoon, both
trained to lose, for "that was the In
telligence from the camps last night.
At Eugene one player is reported with
a dislocated eyebrow and two or three
others are on the verge of illness, the
result of good health. The Aggies, on
the other hand, will be sadly disjoint
ed by tonsllitls. heartburn and the ear
ache. Analytically, Oregon will outweigh
Coach Sam Dolan's team over five
pounds to the man. Plnkham has the
heaviest vquad in the Pacific North
western conference, with an average
weight of close to ITS pounds to 171
fo,r the Aggies. He has the beefiest
bonanza in Ed Bailey, the 227-pound
tackle, who opposes Hofer, a Salem
boy. and also the lightest in Anson Cor
nell. 127-pound quarterback, a lightning
open field man. The Aggies are much
better balanced In avoirdupois.
Kickers Are Only Fair.
In the kicking line there is not much
edge either way. Fenton has been
credited with 45 and 50-yard boots in
practice, but his work at Seattle last
week was only ' fair and that's about
the best that can be said of Black
well's punting.
In experience the Aggies seem to ac
count for much of their success this
Fall, for only three of the 11 men
Quarterback Dewey. Tackle Hofer and
Halfback Blackwell are first year re
. crults. Oregon, on the other hand, will
use five new players. Grout and Cau
fleld at guard and center, and Quarter
hack Cornell, Halfback Parsons and
Fullback Cook. Cornell and Parsons are
both Portland high stars, while Cook
is the big Coeur d'Alene man enticed
t.j Eugene by Bill Hayward amidst pro
tests by Idaho.

- Kid on Christmas," but Arc
Returning In August.
YORK. -Nov. 22. (Special.)
Alfred Gwynne Vanderbllt is not going
to shake the dust of America from his
shoes and make his future abode in
England. Stories from Newport said
he was. but Vanderbllt says no.
"It Is rather amusing to hear such
reports," he said. "I am coming back
here in August. We are going to Eng
land on our usual trip and will leave
on the 17th of next month. I am not
going to close Oakland farm.
"We have made our arrangements to
leave here so as to be with the kid on
Christmas. Of course, I shall coach
as usual in the months of May and
June, and that will get us back here
nicely by August. While we are away
there will be no sense in having the
farm running as it Is now. I shall dis
charge some servants who would be
useless while we are away. I am
going to have a sale, too, of young
horses. You know. I have a lot of
horses there too many."
"Will the Horse Show be continued
next year?"
"I hope so. I don't know how much
of a success the show has been finan
cially this year, but Interest taken in
it has certainly been reassuring."

VIENNA, Nov. 2.1. Rumora of a Rus
sian mobilisation have led to m strong
anti-Russian outburst by the Austrian
press, which accuses Russia of being
behind Servia. The Bourse was greatly
weakened today on rumors of warlike
preparation by Austria and Russia.
LONDON, Nov. 23. Telegraphing
from Constantinople, the correspondent
of the Standard says:
"Much alarm Is felt here over a re

neighborhood of Monastlr for Kata

shipped for the Gulf of Saros, north of

infantry reconnaissances proceeded
along the Tchatalja lines and Nazlm

placed in this report.

Rebel, Gown Designers Have
Taken Lesson From Turk.
CHICAGO, Nov. 22. (Special.) The
Spring maid of 1913 is to be straight
front, straight back, hlpless and curve
less. If fashionably attired she will
look like a straight line, with an ob
lique line at the top, said oblique line
being her hat.
The National Cloak and Suit Manu
facturers, who began their two days'
sessions today and who determine
styles for all ready-made garments
from Philadelphia to the Pacific Coast,
gave the foregoing outline of what will
prevail next season.
Skirts are to be perfectly straight,
looking like an envelope. Jackets are
to be the same. Narrow skirts will
prevail. Hence they will be slashed
so that the wearer may move with
some degree of safety. The slash may
be back, front or on the sides. The
slash will extend to a point just below
the knee and will be skillfully con
cealed by pleats.
For a plump woman, who cannot
wear positively straight lines, fashion
makers have taken a lesson from the
Turk. A movlng-plcture of a Turk
in action has given fashion producers
a grand idea which, they will proceed
to cash In.
