Showing Against Washington
Expected Despite Reverses.
Defeat ly University of Southern
California Does Not Rest Heav
ily on Eleven That Is
Sticking to Grind.
Berkeley, Oct. 31. (SpelcaL) Al
though the Varsity vas defeated by
the University of Southern California
one week ago, her hopes for a good
showing against Washington are still
During the game University of Call-
lornia tried 28 forward passes, only
five of which were successful. Cali
fornia attempted only four.
In the matter of strain. .t line backs,
California outdistanced the Southern
ers' yardage, 212 to 205. The Varsity
naa been centering attention so far on
defense and has attained a strong line
already. with more practice on for
ward passing, the team will be In
splendid shape to meet the Washing
tonians. It must be borne In mind that the
change from the Rugby type of play
to the old game is a different matter,
for while California has an heritage of
lateral passing and punting, she has
also the inability to tackle. Interfer
ence is entirely a new method of of
fence, for In Rugby the man with the
ball is followed, not preceded by the
Strength of Line Indicated.
California's line Kives indications of
being stronger than her backfield, but
as Washington is supposed to have a
specially good line, the play will b
evenly matched in this department.
Coach Jlmmie Schaeffer has held that
position for seven years here, havine
. coached successfully in Rugby the
teams against Stanford during 1909,
1910, 1911, and to a tie In 1912. losing
only the past two games.
Dan Foster, of Portland, continues
to show up well and is a strong can
didate for the quarterback position.
Jack Smith, of Astoria, is generally
conceded to have the center position
Captain Canfield is a hard tackier
and the best defensive man on the
team. He is playing his fourth sea
son. Brooks la Showing op Well.
Brooks has developed into a first
class line-bucker, though only a
sophomore, and his first season with
the Varsity.
Lockhart and Saunders have played
ouring the past two years and are
strong supporters on the line's left
wing. Montgomery has stellar punt
ing ability.
The probable line-up will be selected
from the following men:
Left end. Mat B. Haseltlns (160); left
tackle. R. R. Lock hart (190); left guard,

Tower in Flunglng Game Believed
to Be Too Much for California.
SEATTLE. Oct. 31. Followers of the
University of "Washington football
team are confident of victory when
Washington plays California at Berke
ley next Saturday, as a result of the
showing made by Coach Gilmore
Dobie's men in the game against Whit
man yesterday. Although Washington
defeated Whitman by 27 to 0, many
critics believe the Seattle team could
have piled up a larger score if the
men had played as furiously through
out the game as they did when they
marched the ball across the field for
their four touchdowns.
The Washington team showed much
appeared weak on the forward pass
power and skill in old-style football but
and somewhat slow.
Washington's defensive seems to have
improved. The line was strong and
all efforts to break it yesterday were
unavailing. The team still is weak
in the kicking department.
When Washington and California
line up at Berkeley Saturday, Wash
ington will be supported by a delega
tion of 150 rooters and the university
bacd which will make the trip by
steamer to see the game.

Finally Takes Hard Match.
SAX FRAN-CISCO, Oct, 31 Whirl
wind tennis by George Flint, who, for
one set, played Clarence Griffin. Na
tional doubles champion, clear off his
feet and beat him, 6-0. furnished one
.of the thrills today of the Pacific Coast
championship tennis tournament. Grif

Basketball Guide Appears.
The annual issue of the Spalding
Official Basketball Guide has just made
its appearance and rivals the Football
Guide, not only in size but In the vari
ety of its contents and illustrations.
This is due in a great measure to the
fact that for the first time since, the
expansion of the game to its present
size, one code of rules will govern
amateur play the Young Men's Chris
tian Association, the Amateur Athletic
Union and the National Collegiate Ath
letic Association having adopted a uni
form code of rules prepared by a joint
rules committee to govern the play In
those organizations. This course has
met with the heartiest approval of all
those i who have the interest of the
game at heart and undoubtedly will
have great influence in furthering this
popular pastime.

"It Never Crab."
MoBday, Not. 1, 1015.
The trampled. and blood
stained fields of Europe are not
the only source from which we
Americans can learn the Im
portant lesson of preparedness.
Right here at home occa
sionally we find some outstand
ing event which gives the lesson
an extra punch into our under
standing'. Take, frlnstance, the memor
able occasion when the National
Defense League and the Navy
League of America assembled at
the Chamber of Commerce Tues
day night to discuss this all Im
portant subject of preparedness.
Reports from an eye-witness
have been received by us to the
effect that when the programme
seemed to have moved peace
fully and harmoniously to Its
concluding chapter, W. D.
Wheelwright, the premier after
dinner speaker and always the
com scant core of correctness,
arose and placidly spilled the
beans over the assembled multi
tude. (We used the term spilled
the beana purely in Its figura
tive sense.)
Ed Cooklngham, the chairman
of the evening, was totally un
prepared for this eventuality.
Wheelwright manifestly was
prepared, and the - way he
plowed through the programme
that the committee had doped
out was a marvel to kultur and
Ponderously preaching peace
and dramatically declaiming dis
armament, he bludgeoned the
baffled body of National De
fense Leaguers Into a meta
phorical pulp, leaving Cooking
ham and his cohorts lying like
bruised Belgians in his path.
Seldom in our history have we
seen a more devastating example
of the triumph of preparedness
over unpreparedness. which
brings us right back to the be
ginning of these remarks, to
repeat that you can never can
tell in what guise the Important
lesson of preparedness Is colng
to drop on you.

Manager Wright Demands
$3000 for Salving Judith..
Captain of Barkentine Said to Have
Freely Stated He Regarded Iilves
Aboard His Vessel Lost but
for Aid of Wallula.
The Port of Portland is asking- $3000
for the services of its tug Wallula in
saving the Peruvian barkentine Judith
from destruction on the south jetty
at the mouth of the Columbia River.
In an Astoria dispatch Saturday Cap
tain Bardi, of the Judith, is quoted as
refusing to pay the bill on the ground
that it is "exorbitant."
General Manager E. W. Wright, of
the Port of Portland, takes exception
to the term "exorbitant" and In sup
port of the justice of the claim yester
day presented some details of the
affair that have not previously been
printed. In an Interview Mr. Wright
said :
If Captain Bardi was correctly
quoted in the Astoria dispatch printed,
his opinion as to the value of the serv
ice performed by the Wallula has
undergone a decided change since I
talked with him the next morning after
the Wallula had rescued him from
almost certain death. At that time he
vehemently assured me that his life
was not worth one cent' at the time the
Wallula was boring her way through
the breakers in six fathoms of wild
water endeavoring to get a line aboard
the Judith. He regarded the situation
so near hopeless that according to his
own admission made to several dif
ferent parties in Astoria, he believed
his end was near.
, Money Xot Considered.
No money value can be considered
when human life is at stake and It
was for that reason that Captain Reed
placed the Wallula and the lives of his
crew in Jeopardy in an attempt to
rescue, not the old barkentine Judith
and her cargo of lumber, but the 12
human beings huddled thereon and to
whom death was so close that for
hours they thought each moment would
be their last.
"The odds against the success of the
undertaking were so overwhelming
that neither Captain Reed nor any
other sane tugboatman would ever take
the chance for any possible financial
reward. Because he did take that
chance and lr saving the lives of the
crew also saved the vessel and cargo,
should not relieve the latter from
paying something for salvage.
"As Captain Reed has been at sea
nearly all the time since the Judith
was towed In and is also extremely dif
fident about being interviewed, his
story has not been told. From personal
investigation and inquiry among the
men on both tug and barkentine and
from Captain Reed's modest official
report to me, however, I was enabled
to determine what actually happened
and several days ago made tie follow
even before Bryan, dropped in
the other day with a sample of
his .w. k. loganberry juice which
he left on our desk and got

portunity of thanking him. Call

Theatric Notes.
Carl Reiter, who runs the
Orpheum, was at the Ad Club
Wed. and told a story which
he said was invented by himself,
and we pulled it on Bud Sim
monds, the prom, nicotine ex-
ing report to the Port of Portland Com
mission: Tag's Risk Great.
" 'On the night of October 26 the tug
Wallula pulled the Peruvian barkentine
Judith out of the breakers near the
south Jetty. To reach her. Captain
Reed was obliged to run the tug into
six fathoms with the sea breaking over
both ship and tug. At great risk to
tug and crew, a line was finally got
aboard, but Instead of getting enough
of the cable aboard to make fast, the
excited crew on the Judith attached
chains to the end of the hawser and
made them fast to the bitts.
" "The Wallula towed for 15 minutes
before the chain carried away, and
during that period got the vessel clear
of the breakers. Just as the chains
parted a terrific sea struck the tug and
the channel irons through which the
rudder chains run, went adrift. Jam
ming in the sheaves and rendering the
tug helpless. The relieving tackle was
brought into use and the tug worked
off shore for repairs. By hard work for
two and a half hours, with seas con
stantly breaking over them, Captain
Reed and Engineer Hobson repaired the
damage. Pilot Anderson meanwhile
handling the tug, and at 8:30 P. M.,
again got a line aboard.
" 'The gale was so strong that al
though the Wallula towed offshore all
night she was only seven miles oft
shore at daylight. The Judith was then
towed in over a breaking bar and
anchored In Astoria harbor with ten
feet of water in the hold. Considering
the tremendous risk assumed by the
tug, and the service rendered, I thought
we ought to get 3000 for the work
and. on request, I have so notified the
agents of the owners and under
writers.' "

Unusually heavy loads of passengers
and freight -were brought In by the
North Pacific liners Roanoke and Santa
Clara, which reached Portland, harbor
last night, the Roanoke coming from
California ports and the Santa Clara
from San Francisco and way points.
The cargo of the Roanoke consisted
principally of miscellaneous merchan

shipment of cascara bark from Coos
Bay for shipment East. She also
brought a consignment of butter and
cneese ror Seattle In addition to miscel

The Roanoke reached the dock here
at 6:30 last night and the Santa Clara
tied up about 8 o'clock. The Santa
Clara will be dispatched again this
morning for the southbound trip.
Capacity Cargo Taken.
She will take a capacity cargo of
miscellaneous freight and some pas
sengers. It had been intended to get
her away last night, but she arrived
too late to make this practicable.
The Roanoke which will leave again
Wednesday will take a capacity load
of 1650 tons. This will comprise 660
tons of grain, 403 tons of flour, 100
tons of apples, 150 tons of paper in
addition to miscellaneous merchandise.

Laxatives give only temporary relief and their after effects in

A few years ago, Sir William Arbuthnot Lane, the distin

the use of mineral oil in the treatment of chronic constipation.
Since then, the mineral oil treatment has received the most
thorough testing. The Standard Oil Company (New Jersey)
has produced In Nujol a product that conforms in every way
with the requirements of the medical profession.
