perhuman efforts. And Bezdek used to
toe quite some football player himself
back at Chicago a few years ago, and

Beckett played fullback for the Wash

went to Oregon. He was on the team
that almost licked Oak Park. Chicago,
in that historic 6-3 game in 1910 for
the National interscholastic champion
ship. Hoover Is Real star.
On any other team than little Whit
man College of Walla Walla, Fullback
Hoover would be another shining light.
Hoover, who is a low hurlder with a
mark, of about 25 seconds, was unani
mously chosen all-Northwest quarter
back last Fall. Coach Bo'rleske switched
him to full this year, and he has been
Beting up like a 42-centimeter shell.
Halfback Miller, of the University of
nasnington eleven, is too well known
all over the country to need much
boosting. Walter Camp "mentioned"
him a couple of years ago. Miller
weighs about 200 pounds and is the
original human juggernaut.
And the same goes for the Wash
ington State College trio. Bangs. Dietz
and Applequist. Coach Bill Dietz. the
old Carlisle Indian star, says these
three could make any team in the
country and be phenoms.
On the strength of their showing in
the Michigan Aggie game it is very
"likely that Fullback Abraham, of the
Oregon Aggies, and Tackle Laythe, of
the same team, will be recognized by
the Eastern critics.
Abraham and Laythe Shine.
Out here rival coaches have for two
years referred to Abraham as the
"greatest fullback in the country."
Evidently the Albany plunger lived up
to reputation in the Michigan game,
judging from newspaper accounts of
the soiree. Laythe. the 210-pound
tackle, also performed heroically. He
was opposed to the giant negro star.
Smith, and Smith got manhandled so
badly that he was forced to retire.
Hofer and Bille. of the Oregon Ag
jries. constitute another pair of stars
of high rank.
Comparative scores, used in a house.
that-Jack-built sort of fashion, don't
amount to birds' nests in giving an
absolutely accurate line on the
strength of two teams on opposite ends
of the "doping." They are always in
teresting, however, and the crop grow

Aggies game will be doubly so in view
of the marked superiority in favor of
the Pacific Northwest.

How is this?
Washington State College beat the
Oregon Aggies. 29-0: the Oregon Ag
cries beat the Michigan Aggies. 20-0;
the Michigan Aggies beat Michigan.
24-0; ergo. Washington State is 73
yoints better than Michigan and the
Oregon Aggies are 44 points superior
to Yost's crew.
Investigating further. Syracuse beat
lichigan, 14-7. and Princeton beat
(Syracuse 3-0, so Washington State Col
lege has a 63-point margin over
Princeton. And Princeton beat Lafay
ette 40-3 and Lafayette beat Pennsyl
And remember, too, that Cornell is
rated as only 13 points better than
Princeton, as shown by their scores
with Williams. Cornell beat Williams.
4 6-8. and Princeton beat Williams,
27-0. Yet Cornell defeated Harvard,
3 0-0. So. on comparative scores. Wash

Harvard and 64 points superior to Yale,

Of course these comparisons are
jimerely fanciful and Syracuse may tip

Corvallis Coach Finally Wins Laurels After Discouraging Start- "U-No-Me"
Tells of Abraham's Introduction to Football. Lutz Misses Chance.
BY u-NO-ME. I
OW things have! changed! It will I
be four years in February since
Dr. E. J. Stewart came out to the
Oregon Agricultural College as physical
director. He had a fair reputation as
a basketball coach and had piloted a
couple of secondary colleges in football,
but he had not caused many waves In
the puddle. He coached basketball and
track at Oregon Agricultural College
and did nothing startling in either,
though he had fair teams.
Sam Dolan was the football coach
then, but Dr. Stewart blossomed out as
coach of the football team in 1913. He
didn't make a good start, as his first
big game was against Washington at
Seattle and Dobie was returned victor,
47-0. The hammers began to pound at
a lively rate, but Coach Stewart gritted
his teeth and worked all the harder. To
make things more unpleasant. "Hunky"
Shaw, captain, turned in his suit and
the students sympathized with him in
his differences with "Doc."
The memorable 10-10 game with Ore
gon at Albany, when Oregon Agricul
tural College was doped to be smoth
ered under an avalanche of touch
downs, put a quietus on the anvil
Last year Coach Stewart added more
glory by holding the Washington ma
chine 0-0 at Albany and Oregon to a
3-3 tie at Corvallis. He, introduced to
the public one of the most sensational
halfbacks ever shown in the North
west conference in Art Lutx.
This season Lutz and Moore, his star
men. failed to return, so things were
not particularly rosy. His team looked
pretty good after trimmingWhitman
34-7 and Willamette 69-0, but returned
to the ordinary after Dietz and his co
horts walloped them 29-0 on the Oregon
Agricultural College pasture.
The team started East with misgiv
ings and everyone imagined the Mich
igan Aggies would annex at least half
a hundred points after the terrible pun
ishment they visited upon the "Hurry
Up" Y'ost clan the Saturday previous.
Few would have risked a jitney against
a ten-spot that Oregon Agricultural
College would hold them to 30 points.
Stewart may not be a coach, but he
has reached heights seldom dreamed
of by the "big uns." Dobie has a rec
ord for consecutive wins, but they pale
to insignificance when placed along
side Stewart's feat. Even the mighty

CHICAGO. Oct. 31. The rout of the

over Wisconsin were the most notable
contributions to football history in the
Middle West Saturdaj-.
At the same time at least one new
name was written large into the annals
of the gridiron that of Abraham of
the Oregon eleven. This hero of the
game at Lansing, Mich., was com

game said that Abraham never took'WIXD KEEPS THW STORPi! Tnw

and the Oregon forwards did their

Credit Given Oregon Men.
i Handicapped by the 3000-mile jour

Michigan Aggies' prestige on their
home grounds, the Oregon men de
served the greatest credit. The fact
that the Oregon Aggies were defeated

The remarkable Ttlavim. r i 1
in the game against the Michigan
Aggies recalls the early days' practice
ol his first year at Oregon Agricul

the reliable fullback on Albany High
School for a couple of seasons, and,
being the largest man on the team
was accustomed to having a rather
easy time as far as bumps were con
cerned. He was a big. husky lad. but
not overly strong, and no one was more
surprised than his brother, Gus of
Albany, when he made the team. ' He
could handle Herman so easily that
he thought his chances at Oregon Agri

Seal Manager Takes Discarded An
gel Flinger for 1916 Team.
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 31. (Special.)
Harry Wolverton announced his first
deal looking to the 1916 season today
with the signing of Poll Perritt, dis
carded Los Angeles Ditcher. Wolver
ton says he thinks Perritt is a better
pitcher than he has been credited with
being, and points to his showing
against the Salt Lake Bees the last
time he was there with the Angels. On
hat occasion Perritt won two games
on the week. At all events, the new
Seal will have all the chance in the
world at the Spring tryout.
The Seals have also signed Allan a
novice first baseman, who has been
playing semi-pro ball. Wolverton hard
ly expects to use him with the local
club, but may place the youngster with
some Northwestern League team.
