When Oregon and the Oregon Aggies
pet together one week from Saturday
at Eugene, the teams will be closely
matched in beef. Oregon may have a
pound or two on the Aggies, but not
enough to worry anybody.
Hugo Bezdek will send an eleven
averaging approximately 17 7 pounds
against his ancient opponent, and the
Aggies' aggregate will measure about
175 or 176 pounds, not including tiu.s
Jtofer. If the former captain is started
at end which seems unlikely the
Aggies will balance the beam about on
a pur with the lemon-yellow.
From present indications Laythe and
Smyth will open the game at the tackle
jobs for the Aggies, with Hofer in re
serve. Holer opened last week againstl
Idaho. Coach Stewart is slightly puz-1
zled about Captain Billie. He has one
hunch which says to place Billie at his
old end berth, and yet he thinks he
needs the veterans in the backfield.
Billie was started at end against the
Michigan Aggies, but went back to
the backfield when All worth was in
jured. Bill Ifietz is not the only Carlisle
"Indian who is making' good as a grid

DR. DAV RAFFETY, a pioneer
physician, has presented to the
Brooklyn School his fine collec
tion of Indian relics and minerals.
These hae been placed in cabinets in
the assembly hall labeled and described
so that 'students may tell what they
Includod in the collection of Indian
curios are implements for the prepara
tion of i'ood, paints, medicines, gam
t'iS sanies and war clubs, besides
about 5000 different specimens of rock
formations. Principal. T. J. Gary re
gards the coll jtion of great value and
in the course of a few weeks Dr. Kaf
fety will formally turn over the col
lection tr. the school district in a lec
ture to bo delivered in the Washington
High School. It was expected to do
this in the assembly hall of the Brook
lyn School, but the edict has gone forth
that the assembly hall cannot be used
for public gatherings, and hence the
Washington High School was selected.
Value of Collection Praised.
O. M. Ilummar, member of the Board
of Kducation, said that the collection
is one of great value and he desired
all students of Portland to see it, and
will arrange for this gathering, when
Dr. Dave Kaffety. the collector of the
specimens, will tell about the history
of the relics.
The collection represents the work of
more than 30 years. Dr. Raff ety came
to Oreson as a pioneer and at once
started g-athering Indian curios and
mineral specimens ot every sort. With
him it became a passion. The Indian
relics were gathered in and about Port
land and in the Willamette Valley, and
in this work he was assisted by Indian
John Casino, a well-known friend of
the whites, ho died near Troutuale a
few years ago.
The relics were gathered near Ore
gon City. Sauvie's Island, at the Cas
cades, along the . Sandy River and
Clackamas itiver. These rude imple
ments, stored away in the assembly
hall of the Brooklyn School, have a
great value, and tell the story of the
habits of the original inhabitants be
fore the coming of the white man.
Professor Thomas Condon, former state
geologist, and other geologists regarded
the collection of great value, and spent
hours examining the relics when they
were depesited at the old Raffety store
on East Oak street.
VeMfU Contained in Collection.
In the cabinets are many mortars and
pestles. Dr. Raffety having obtained
a complete collection of both, ranging
from the larger ones used for grind -ing
food to the smaller ones used for
making paint and medicines from
herbs. One cf the mortars is oblong in
form and has the head of a turtle
clearly defined, with the arms and ribs
along the sies. There are about 30
mortars in the collection made of com
mon basnlt. some of tufa and trachyte.
Dr. Raffety says that he secured his
finest mortar by the fact that he was
a sprinter. O. B. Johnson, a rival col
lector and a friend, told him and Dr.
Raffety that a beautiful mortar could
be found at '.he foot of a certain oak
tree on East Morrison street. Dr. Raf
fety reached the tree first and got the

"More than' 100 years ago Lewis and
Clark in their descent of the Columbia
River" found many different tribes of
Indians, ibout 20,000, each subsisting
on such game as the country produced,
in addition to the yearly run of salmon
taken in the Columbia River and its
Stone Implements Commonly Found.
"It was noticeable that stone imple
ments were more commonly found be

Columbia region. Both eides of the
river at the upper and lower Cascades.
The Dalles. Sauvies Island and Willam

Different kinds of rock material used
in forming these stone implements
would indicate that " tribes from many
parts of the Pacific -Coast "migrated to

broken implements found strewn broad
cast on the surface would indicate that
there was continual strife and war
fare over the mastery of the fisheries.
"The early pioneers found the In
dians had a Pacific Highway consisting
of from 15 to 25 deeply-trodden paths,
side by side, worn by the different
tribes in journeying with their ponies,
dogs, drags and papooses to and from
these' fisheries, extending the full
length of the Coast from California to
Washington and the Upper Columbia
region. These paths did not go straight

big potlatches and conventional dances.
Here the early pioneers found many

quantities of stone implements.
"Captain Clark on visiting the Mult

Indian who brourht -forward an Indian
woman, whose face was covered with
smallpox pits, that some 30 or 40 years
ueiore a disease had been contracted
that killed them off by the thousands,
almost depopulating the tribe of Mult

that more Indians died by pestilence
than by warfare. ,

address at our salesroom, 21st and Wash

ing. As the most eminent authorities in the
engineering world are almost unanimous
in the opinion that the eight-cylinder "V"
type marks the ultimate in motor car en
gines, all who are interested in the prog
ress of automobile construction should find
the talk well worth hearing.
In connection with the explanation of
the principles of the "V" type motor, Mr.
