DATES FOR BATTLES SET
O. A. C. Team and Its Opponents to
Be Only Ones to Use American
Style of Playing at Panama
r ' BY ROSCOE FAWCETT.
World's Fair visitors will see one of
the crack teams of Northwestern foot
ball In action next Fall. Dr. E. J.
Stewart, head coach at the Oregon Ag
ricultural College, yesterday announced
the signing of two games in Califor
nia for 1915. One or them will be
played on the Exposition grounds at
The first of these Inter-sectlonal
clashes will be with the Pomona col
legians at Los Angeles Wednesday, No
vember 24. The second will be the
return game with the University of
Southern California at San Francisco
Saturday, November 27.
Thi3 means that the proposed Washington-Oregon
Aggie battle for next
Thanksgiving day at Seattle Is off. It
will have to be disposed of earlier in
Teams to Be Only Ones of Kind.
"As I understand It now," explained
rr. Stewart last night, "we and our
opponents will be the only college
teams playing the American game to
appear in the Exposition stadium next
Fall. This may not be the case, but I
am given to understand as much by
Manager Bovard, of the University of
Southern California. He did the sched
uling for me."
Dr. Stewart and his team were in
Fortland yesterday en route home to
Corvallis from Tacoma, where the Ag
gies rode roughshod over Southern
California, 38-6. The Southerners also
were in the city last night and went
through the Multnomah Club.
Fred Kelly, the present world's
champion hurdler. Is a member of the
California squad. Which prompts the
remark that Portland played host to
the three greatest hurdlers last even

Forrest Smithson. winner of the Lon

home town again. Mrs. Smithson pre
sented husband with a 104 -pound boy
a few days ago. Martin Hawkins, Win
ner of third placer at the Stockholm
Olympiad two years ago, also Is a
Portland product. Kelly completes the
trio of high timber experts.
"Our boys had an easy time defeat
ing Southern California." said Coach
Stewart, discussing the Tacoma game.
''Coach Glaze possesses one end named
James, .who is as good as anything I
have ever bumped against. Kelly proved
a hard man to tackle. He was an adept
at handling his feet and shifting. But
the champion hurdler didn't appear to
like hard tackling, for he ran out of
bounds at every opportunity."
About 7000 fans witnessed the game,
but as Tacoma's beautiful stadium can
seat about 30,000 the crowd looked
like a few peas In a peck measure.
Bill Hayward, the Oregon trainer,
thinks that all football and basketball
officials should wear white raiment.
"It's hard foithe players to pick out
their men for passes," explained Bill
yesterday. "In some of our games
white wouldn't be white very long, but

Defeat First for University Since
Portland Academy 1913 Game.
For the first time since the game

day at Aberdeen. The Portland eleven
went down to a 33-to-13 defeat at the

The points for the Washingtonians
were scored in the first half, and It

Hap Hogan, of Venice, is credited in
a recent interview In Los Angeles with
saying that he intended to make sev
eral changes in the Sacramento-Mission
team if he takes the leadership of
the club. He previously had attended
a monster mass meeting given in his
honor by business men in Sacramento.
It Is being said In Los Angeles that
if Hap wants the job as manager of
the Sacramento team he will eet it at a.
salary of J5000 a year and will receive
01 per cent of the club's stock.
Hogan will not have a thing to do
with the Wolves unless they are
financed by one or two individuals, it
is said. He learned a lesson in taking
the old Fresno club. When the Fresno
fans got the Coast League fever they
canvassed the town and every one put
in from J20 up. The town could not
support the club, however, and the
franchise was taken up by the league.
Not long ago Hogan was paying a
visit to Fresno. He entered a cigar
store and deposited a $20 note, picked

puck effectively. Th'jn he shot the

Olympic Club's Claims on Recrea

SAN FRANCISCO. Nov. 27. (Special.)
Tom Stephens said that the claims of
the Olympic Club on Recreation Park
may further hold up the negotiations
for the purchase of the Seals by the
Berry brothers and himself.
Stephens said the matter is worry
ing him and he intends to get Into
communication with Hen Berry, in Los
Angeles, for If it is true that the
Olympic Club has sub-leased the
Valencia-street grounds, it will mean
that the plans formed by Berry and
Stephens will go astray.
"It will certainly create one grand
mixup. If we cannot get Recreation
Park to play on next year," says
Stephens. "In all our negotiations for
the San Francisco club no mention
has been made to us that the Olympic
Club holds a lease or anything as
good on the old grounds. It is a
foregone conclusion that we will not
go back to Ewing Field and if we
cannot get the Valencia-street grounds
it means tnat tne deal is off."

TROON CASE HELD UP
CAPITAL PUNISHMENT VOTE IS TO
Attorneys Think No Punishment Pro
vided for First Degree Murder.
Insanity Will Be Plea.
The murder charge against Fred
Tronson, confessed assassin of Emma
TJlrich, will not be taken before the
grand Jury until secretary of State
Olcott formally announces the result
of the vote on the amendment to abol
ish capital punishment, said Deputy
District Attorney Collier last night.
This announcement is expected within
a few days.
Complete but unofficial returns show
that the amendment abolishing the
death penalty has carried by a small
majority. If the official announcement
shows this to be true, a charge of sec
ond degree murder, for which life Im
prisonment Is the heaviest penalty, will
be brought against Tronson. Attorneys
believe that the new amendment is so
worded that no penalty at all Is pro
vided for first degree murder.
"If any man should hang, I believe
Tronson should. That's why I'm wait
ing for the official count," said Mr.
Tronson's conduct during a stay at
a hopyard near St. Paul. Or., last Sep
tember is now being investigated. It
is reported from there that he made
himself obnoxious to women on several
occasions, and once, during an alterca
tion with another hop-picker, drew a
revolver. Those who worked at the
yard believed him a dangerous char
acter, says a recent dispatch from St.
Tronson's attorneys have announced
that insanity would be their defense.
