MEETING DECEMBER 4-5
Washington State College Will Ask
Sot Forfeiture of Oregon Game
on Cornwall's Account and
Gonzaga Plea Is Expected.
BY ROSCOB FAWCETT.
Athletic managers of the Northwest
conference colleges have shifted their
place of meeting from Portland to
Spokane. At least so says John R,
Bender, of Pullman, the secretary. This
session will be held December 4 and 6
and during its two nights' stand
schedules for all athletics for 19X5 will
Two other important matters are
slated for action.
One of these has to do with an ex
pected request from Gonzaga College
for admittance into the conference.
The second is a protest from Washing
ton State College on the playing of
Cornwall of Oregon against the Wash
ington Aggies. Coach Bender will ask
that Oregon's 7-0 victory be annulled
because Cornwall appeared a few min
utes in the fourth quarter against his
Cornwall played at Washington and
Jefferson College in Pennsylvania last
year, participating against Yale. Penn.
sylvania State. Carlisle and Pittsburg.
The Oregon Aggies dug up the dope
on him, and when it was shown to the
varsity officials Cornwall was prompt
ly barred from the state championship
"Manager Tiffany tried to get a line
on Cornwall this Fall. I did not use
him in any of my early games as a
regular because I was not sure of his
eligibility," explained Coach Bezdek of
Oregon at Corvallis the other day.
"Cornwall evidently had his tracks
well covered. We were unable to get
word from the registrar. The athletic
manager wrote us that he was all
right, so he was caled upon against
Cornwall will be eligible next year
and "Bez" is counting upon him
strongly. The Washington and Jeffer
son star will be used against Multno
mah Thursday tit one of the wing po
sitions. Ue weighs about 185 pounds.
Concerning Gonaaga College, the
Bpokane Catholic school made applica
tion for entry into the conference last
year, but was turned down. The Gon
zagans have put up such a sterling
article of ball this Fall, however, that
the faculty heads may deem it wise to
wave the mystic scepter.
Just at present a little bitterness
exists between Whitman and Gonzaga,
owing to the latter's scheduling a
counter attraction In Spokane at the
time of the Whitman-Washington State
contest. In a letter to the writer.
Coach Harmon, of Gonzaga, defends his
actions with much strenuousity.
"Recently in The Oregonian you said
there was no excuse for the conflict
because the conference schedule was
drafted and published during the holi
days," says Harmon, in part- "Never
theless, I have in my posslon a sched
ule of the Whitman games, published
as late as September, showing the
Whitman-W. S. C. game to be playsd
Unquestionably the conference mana
gers should have notified Gonzaga as
to their intentions to play a game in
Spokane. Still, when the schedule was
drafted in Portland it was given out
and published in all the Northwest
papers that Whitman and Washington
State probably would play in Spokane
on the disputed date.
Gonzaga must have known this and
If there had been any intent on its part
to co-operate with the conference any
probable conflicts in playing dates
could have been obviated at the cost of
a 2-cent stamp.
That Gonzaga resented the invasion
of Spokane by the conference is shown
by Coach Harmon's closing paragraph:
"Conference games in Spokane al
ways have been generously supported
by Gonzaga students. They will con
tinue to support games here in the fu
ture, but, in all fairness to the home
management, we would appreciate the
use or a little ethical judgment by con
ference managers in that they notify us
of their plans when they contemplate
playing in Spokane."
Individual stars always have touch
hoeing in the important football games
or tne .fail. Jonnny Parsons almost
licked Washington single-handed last
Fall by wriggling through the entire
purple team for a touchdown on Mult
nomah Field. Profiting by this ex
perience, Dobie built a special defense
for Johnny this year and as a result
the Oregon phenom found himself

Borleske got his reputation until two
years ago when the Lincoln coach
donned a suit for Tom McDonald's all
stars against Multnomah Club. Bor
leske staged one of the grandest exhi
bitions of football that Christmas Day
which Seattle had ever witnessed.
This sowing of mines in the path of
me scars was carried out to the nth
power in the recent Oregon state
. championship game. Neither Lutz, of
the Aggies, nor Parsons, of Oregon, was
able to get away for a single substan
tial gain. . ,.
"I don't see how you stODDed Par.
