like the Boston Braves, these Port
land champs refuse to step on the
proverbial banana peel. Yesterday the
Beavers won a double bill from the
Missions, the same consisting of two
beautiful pitching; duels. In which all
ports of thrills were furnished for 4212
actual paid admissions.
The score of the first same was 5 to
and the second 1 to- 0.
Stroud's failure to catch a toss at
first base cost him his battle against
Martinonl. Korea came up in the
tame inning;, the fourth, and knocked
a home run over the right field fence,
sjood. for two runs.
Qus Fisher clinched the matinee in
the eighth when he banged a two
dagger against the right-field fence
and started another two-run proces
sion. Poke Follows Award of Trophy.
' It Is nothing unusual for Fisher to
S-attle the fences with line shots. This
poke, however, carried particular dis
tinction, because it followed directly
on the heels of the presentation of a
huge trophy cup awarded to Gus as be
lnjr the most valuable member of the
. Portland club,
i W. W. Metsger made the presenta
tion and. after everybody had blubbered
into it and wondered what Fisher
would do with it when it began to tar
nish, the Ty Cobb of the Coast re
sumed his position at the plate and
took aforesaid vengeance on Stroud
and the horsehide.
- Young's error let Speas go safe to
Second base a moment later and Fisher
scored and a wild pitch by Stroud
settled the beans. Speas startled
everybody by romping all around from
second to home like Peter Volo doing
& mile in 2 flat.
Martlnonl mm Steady as Clock.
Martlnonl was as steady as clock
work and allowed only four hits, as
against seven off the future New York
If the Initial game was a pitchers'
battle, the second was the same, only
- The signal for hostilities to begin
found Portland's big star, Higgln-
botham, aligned against Southpaw
Williams and the score, 1-0, just about
tells the story. Williams pitched good
enough ball to win In any old league,
but fate was "agin" him.
It was his second defeat of the week
and yet in the two games he allowed
only four runs.
' Southpaw Williams held Portland to
three hits and one of these was de
cidedly scratchy. Higginbotham was
nicked for four, duplicating Martinonl's
teat in the initial engagement
Derrick Scores Lome Tally,
c Derrick scored Portland's lone tally
tn the fourth stanza. The Georgian
opened with a single to left, the first
hit off Williams, and was boosted to
second on Rodgers' scratch hit to short.
A close play on Kodgers at first, over
which much strong language was spilt
by Tennant, permitted Derrick to pilfer
third and he registered on. Kodgers'
force at second base on Ryan's
Derrick stuck his hand in the way
of a line drive by Coy in the seventh
end was forced to quit the game with
a bad finger. The accident may throw
Mack's machine out of gear again, for
Derrick's finger was badly mashed and
disfigured. Korea finished the game at
nrst ana uavis went to third.
Speas, Coy and Cook all did some
sensational spearing in the field.

farewells to Portland last night, da

MRS. BERTHA GREEN AND PET.
Mrs. Bertha Green, who won first prize at the Multnomah County
Fair for the best saddle and trickster horse, well deserved that honor.
She trained her horse, a mare, a year ago, when it was unbroken. Mrs.
Green met with marked success and now has a well-trained saddle
horse that will obey her slightest wish lie down, sit down or do
anything she commands.
Those who saw the little animal before Mrs. Green began train

UNIVERSITT OF OREGON, Eugene,
Or., Sept. 27. (Special.) Unless Dr. E.
J. Stewart, the Oregon "Aggie" College
athletic director, brings his "rook" team
to Eugene Wednesday, the annual U. of
O.-O. A. C. freshman gams will not be
played this season. The conteet was
supposed to have been staged at Kin
caid Field upon this date, and Manager
Tiffany wrote Dr. Stewart to that effect
recently, the answer received conveyed
the fact that O. A. C, owing to the
earliness of the season, would play the
game reluctantly October 3.
Head Coach Bezdek, in speaking of
the affair, said: "Last Fall Stewart
made the date; it was early for us be
cause the "Aggie' squad already had
been at work at Newport a week or so
before my arrival in Eugene. How
ever, I said nothing but accepted the
date offered and met them in Corvallls.
This year the date Oregon proposes is
the same Wednesday, one year later.
Stewart has refused to meet us on this
day, and unless he changes his mind in
the meantime no game will be played.
'We are trying to arrange for a game
with the Multnomah Club team of Port
land, to be played either here or In that
city October 3. As I have use for my
freshmen in the making of my varsity
lineup. It is impossible to have & game
with any other team on the same day.
It is only right that Dr. Stewart accept
the date I oner him."

Every tennis expert In the world has
tried to explain how R. Norrls Wil
liams, of Harvard, contrived to snatch
the National tennis championship from
Maurice McLoughlin, of California.
But the man with the "real dope" is
back in San Francisco in the shape of
a smiling, debonair young gentleman
with an armful of racquets, auburn
hair and a suit delicately tinted to
mctch. He sensationally defeated re
cently the reputed two best players in
the world, Wilding and Brookes, of
Australasia, and was even more sensa
tionally beaten by his own countryman
his name, McLoughlin.
- "How did It happen?" McLoughlin
said, wit the flicker of a smile that
the movies have made familiar to the
world. "Why, Williams Just played' tre
mendously severe tennis In all depart
ments of the game. His service was
exceedingly fast, he hit the ball as
hard sis I have ever seen It hit when
drivintr and he committed very few
errors. When Williams is at his best
he serves up a most severe game, se
vere la absolutely the word. As a rule,
he has played in this supreme style
for a few games and then cracked up
and thrown his match away by hitting
outside the courts or Into the net. But
he made very few mistakes and main
tained a breathless pace. He won by
magnificent tennis, there Is no doubt
about that, and If I had to surrender
the pennant there is no one to woom.i

Investigation Committee Head Says No

OREGON AGRICULTURAL COL
LEGE, Corvallls, Or., Sept. 27. (Spe
cial.) The culmination of a thorough
investigation of the athletic depart
ment of the Oregon Agricultural
College was reached at a meet
ing of the student body held, here
this morning when Professor E. J.
Krause, chairman of the Investi
gating committee, vlndlvated Dr.
E. J. Stewart, director of athletics,
and declared that rumors circulated
relative to the morality and honesty
of the head, of the department of
athletics were groundless without ex
ception. The committee, composed of promi
nent faculty men and students, was ap
pointed last Spring by President W. J.
Kerr. An element unfriendly to Dr.
Stewart had hinted that athletics were
tinged with professionalism. The com
mittee's Investigation failed' to show
an Instance where athletes had been
paid to corns to the college, or other
action taken that bordered, on profes
sionalism. The chairman of the committee said
that It was emphatic In Its assertion
of the belief that Dr. Stewart should
be retained as director of athletics. The
report of the committee was greeted
with applause by the students.
Dr. Kerr, president of the college,
spoke briefly to the students, express
ing his confidence in Dr. Stewart, and
urging the students to give him their
support. Dr. Kerr commended ths
committee for its work.

BRAVES' GLORY "JUST IXCK.'
Fame Depend on W eakness of Other
Fellow in Game.
Fame, all too frequently In thl
sportive whirl, depends upon what the
other fellow has to offer.
One man is a winner and a star and
a hero because the other fellow wasn'
there. Another may do even better
work and be overlooked because hi
opponent delivered In bulk.
There's the case of the Boston Red
Sox and the Braves. The Braves hav
absorbed practically all the glory. They
are getting the big headlines and th
big crowds. Yet the Red Sox. against
all-around stronger competition, hav
won more games and lost fewer than
the other Boston delegation. The main
answer is this: The Braves had th
Giants to beat out; the Red Sox had th
Athletics. It wasn't a case of better
ball playing by the Braves but of
weaker competition. The "other guy
factor is a big one in acquiring glory
in any game.

The Oregon Aggies have not yet re
turned the contract for this game, ac
cording to Dow Walker, but he thinks
there will be no hitches. 'Multnomah,
however, agreed to pay two games with
the Aggies when the original agree
ment was entered into and recently re
fused to play the October 3 engagement
at Corvallis, owing to the inability of
several members of the squad to make
Naturally the Corvallls athletic heads
are a trifle disappointed because It
cuts them out of one home game.
Also the Aggies would have caught the
club at an opportune time to have
gained revenge for some of the beatings
of the past.
Last Fall the Oregon Aggies played
Multnomah a 6-0 game on Multnomah
Field and the following week the two
teams battled to a 7-7 tie at Corvallls.
