All-star football symposiums are Inter
esting: In that they give to the average
tan an idea of the playing ability of the
respective stars. Few gridiron enthu
siasts see more than two or three
games at best every Fall and few
see all the Northwest teams in action.
In fact, not all the coaches and writ
ers have an opportunity to size up ev
ery eleven, so the various all-star
choices naturally differ widely. -
This Fall nine coaches and news
paper men named mythical all-star
teams, and, for the purpose of arriving
at a real all-star eleven in the North
west conference, we have taken a poll
of these nine symposiums.
Above is shown the result.
Tyler and Co 9 It Cet 8 Votea.
Tyler, of Washington State, end. and
Cook, of Oregon, guard, received the
most general commendation, each re
ceiving eight votes of the nine. Lutz
and Parsons, of Oregon, received seven
votes apiece for the halves. Hap Miller,
of Washington, received five votes for
half and four for fullback.
Oddly enough, the "rear' all-star
team coincides almost exactly with that
chosen by The Oregonian.
With three stars in the halfback po
sitions. Parsons, Miller and Lutz. every
one of whom was entitled to all-star
mention, most of the critics avoided
complications by shunting Miller to
fullback. In a measure this was injus
tice to the men who played fullback
during the season. Hence, The Ore
gonlan got around the obstacle by hon
oring three halfbacks and naming Shiel
at full. The poll foUows:

CORNELL IS LEADER
Portland Boy Chosen Captain
of Oregon Team.
CAREER SUCCESSFUL ONE
Pilot of 1915 University Squad Is
Quarterback Who Fights Until
Last Whistle and Inspires
His Men With "Pep."
UNIVERSITY OP OREGON. Eugene,
Or., Nov. 30. (Special.) Anson Cor
nell, of Portland, was chosen by a
unanimous vote of the monogram men
of the university to be captain of the
1915 football squad, and the official
picture of the 1914 team was snapped
this afternoon, whereupon the curtain
dropped for the season for the grid
The captain-elect Is the son of T. V.
Cornell, a Southern Pacific train dis
patcher in Portland, and has been play
ing "prep" school and varsity football
for seven years of his student days.
The first team with which he played
was that of Washington High School,
and at the end of bis initial year he
was elected captain, although he was
only a sophomore.
All-Star Place Won.
This event took place in 1308, and at
the end of the season Cornell was cho
sen as a member of the mythical all
star Interscholastlc Leag-ie team of
that year. He was likewise honored in
1909 and 1910. In the tall of 1911 he
acted as assistant coach to Virgil Earl.
The next year -he entered the univer
sity. Coach Louis Plnkham was Cornell's
first mentor in conference football and
he made good In his freshman year un
der Captain Dean Walker. A season
later Hugo Bezdek arrived to take up
the reins and Cornell was the common
choice of the critics as the leading
pivot man In conference football.
Injuries in the Idaho game put Cor
nell on the shelf this year and he
played only two minutes in the Wash
ington game and not at all in the Ag
Cornell FijWs to the End.
In Cornell Oregon will have a leader
who is probably the greatest "pep" ln-
splrer a lemon-yellow team has ever
had and a quarterback who always
fights until the last whistle. "Nance,"
as he is affectionately called by the
students and coaches, weighs only 13?
pounds, but he uses his weight to the
maximum advantage. No Interference
was ever too deep nor too heavy for
Nance to wade into.
"With every man on the squad back
next season," said the new captain,
"Oregon should l&nd on top in the
championship race. I want every mem
ber of the squad to keep an eye out
for new material, and with any kind
of fortune we should give all confer
ence teams a hard rub for honors."
JOXES DEXIES BIG FED LOSS
Report St. Louis Team May Quit Is
Denounced by Manager.
Fielder Jones, manager of the St.
Louis Federal League team, who lives
in Portland, yesterday denounced as
maliciously false the report that Presi
dent Stifel, of the club, had lost 3100,
000 and was ready to quit.
"It seems that there are a number of
persons spreading such reports with
malicious intent to discredit and wreck
the Feedral League." said Jones.
The report says the bank roll that
has kept the Federals going in St.
Louis is almost drained and unless
someone furnishes a new one the team
"We are making arrangements for a
place 'to train." said Jones. "That
doesn't look much life Stifel was ready
to throw up his hands, does It?"
By Koiroe Fawcett.
BECAUSE ha slipped a disqualified
player back Into the game against
New York TJ. disguised with ban
dages, the football coach at Stevens
has been ousted from his job. The sen
timent of the student body was ex
pressed as follows:
"Stevens may not be able to have a
winning football team. She may not
be able to nave many victories in la
crosse, baseball or track, nor be rated
as a power in the college athleti
world. But there is one thing Stevens
can have and that is clean athletics."
When the Northwest Conference
heads meet at Spokane Friday and Sat-
urday, Victor Zedntck, president of the
conference, will recommend the abol
ishment of the present system of nam
ing officials. Under the plan adopted
last year, in all cases where the col
leges fail to agree on officials It has
been left up to George Varnall, of Spo
kane, one of the officials. Zednick
thinks this is a poor plan, and next
season likely will find some disin
terested person in the role of peace
maker. Bob Harmon, coach of the Gonzaga
college eleven, which may ask for
membership in the Northwest Confer
ence, played guard at Denver Uni
versity in 1906 and later was the star
halfback at Creighton. He coached
Butte High before accepting the Gon
zaga Job two years ago.
An amusing bit of repartee was
staged in the Oregon-Multnomah game
on Thanksgiving day. Huntington of
Oregon had stepped on Grover Francis"
neck rather rudely several times and.
finally, when the offense was repeated.
Francis jumped to his feet and snorted
out: "I'm going to bust the next guy
that kicks me in the head!"
"Leave yer head to home if you
don't want us to touch it!" shot back
one of the collegians.
Redlands College Is the latest South
ern California school to desert Rugby
football. H. G. Clement, principal,
called off the Thanksgiving game with
Manual Arts because the boys were
demanding a change to American foot
ball and wouldn't play with spirit.
Washington State College is trying
to frame up a game at Spokane with
Gonzaga College for December 6.
Bender wants $1500 guarantee.
Those who maintain that there is a
vast difference in the standards of
Eastern and Western Football are un
doubtedly correct. . For instance, every
Western paper that prints football news
carried a full account of the Yale-Harvard
game. If any New York paper
published a lineup of the Illinois-Wis
consin game, which settled the Western
championship, we failed to spot it.

BILLS TO BE PICKED
Sportsmen to Decide Soon
What Acts to Offer.
COMPLAINTS TO COME UP
More Than 300 Delegates . From
Many Sections of State Expected
to Attend Convention Monday.
Use of Fund Is Explained.
What acts and bills pertaining to
the state fish and game laws. will be
brought up at the coming, session of
the Legislature through efforts of the
organized sportsmen of the state will
be decided at the convention of the
Oregon Sportsmen's League to be held
Monday night in the Commercial Club's
rooms. Preliminary gatherings are
being-held throughout the state at
which delegates are being chosen and
when President Van Duzer calls to or
der the Portland session more than
300 delegates are expected to be pres
ent. The Portland Gun Club and the
Multnomah - Anglers' Club have been
arranging special amusements for the
visiting sportsmen, and next Sunday
is slated to be a banner day at the
Portland Gun Club grounds at Jeune
Station, on the Estacada carline. 1
Casting: Tournament Planned,
A fly and bait casting tournament,
in connection with the regular Sunday
shoot of the Gun Club, is to be held
and the holding of a merchandise
shoot is being considered by Secretary
Joseph A. Addleman.
While many of the sportsmen of the
state are satisfied with the game laws
for the most part, there are a few
statutes which can be improved, it Is
believed, and several bills probably will
be placed before the legislators.
Among Important questions to be
threshed out at the sportsmen's meet
ing are the proposition to close the
Willamette River to net fishing and
everything else other than line and
hook fishing; and the proposal con
cerning hunting and fishing license
fees going into the general fund.
Licenses Snpport Work.
"People have the Impression that
the Fish and Game Commission is sup
ported by the general state fund,"
said W. F. Backus, a well known local
fisherman, "and that the fi3hing and
hunting license fees should be placed
in this fund. This is a grave mis
take, for not one cent Is taken from
this general fund by the Fish and
Game Commission and everything is
taken from the fund derived from the
sale of licenses.
"We expect the first delegates to
the convention to arrive in Portland
some time Saturday.
"Any district of the state with a
grievance 1b expected to voice its opin
ion and everything will be done to
make the. hunting and fishing condi
tions of this section of the country
the best possible."

squad, has been notified by H. Morris

School, that no contest can be played.
The Dalles Is claiming the champion

BETTER SEASON IS DOE
NORTHWESTERN LEAGUE WILL
RETRENCH, SAYS "DUG."
Federals Blamed for Poor Financial
Showing la 1814, bat Their Failure
In Near Future la Predicted.
SEATTLE. Wash, Nov. 80. (Spe
cial.) President D. E. Dugdale, who
has- just returned from Omaha, where
he represented the Northwestern
League at the annual meeting of the
minors, gave his views today on the
outlook for the Northwestern League
next year and the baseball situation in
The most vital changes are In the
league's rating, which will probably
reduce the salary limit and limit the
players squad to 15. Limiting of the
teams to 15 players Is, . he says, the
policy all along the line.
"Every league in the country has
been forced to retrench," he said.
"From the big leagues to the Class I
organizations the number of players
allowed to be carried by a club has
been reduced, and it was pointed out
by Garry Herrmann that these rules
would be rigidly enforced. It Is the
effort of the commission to put base
ball back on its feet and make the
gate receipts pay for the running of
the clubs. Last year was the poorest
baseball season in 15 years, I learned
from my visit east, and I am glad to
say that the Northwestern League Is
in as good condition as any league In
"The Federals, on top of the disgust
of the fans with the baseball war, are
the cause of the poor financial season,
but I have every reason to believe that
on the new basis baseball will return
to the confidence of the public."
President Dugdale remarked that it
was his Impression that the hours of
the Federal League were numbered.
He Bald that It was the general opin
ion In the East that the Federals were
wobbling and would not start the 1915
season because of a lack of financial
backing. He said that the Federals
did not have enough money to buy the
Chicago Cubs, and that this fact gave
organised baseball new courage that
made peace impossible now.
"But despite the changes," President
Dugdale Bald, "I am certain that the
Northwestern League fans will see just
as good ball next year as ever."
