OREGON-AGGIE GUSH
YEAR'S BIG CLASSIC
Ted Cramer, of College Fame,
Visits in Portland.
FOOTBALL GOSSIP IS RIFE
Three More Franklin High Griddcrs
Are Trying Out for Berths on
. Regimental Eleven.
r BY JAMES J. RICHARDSON".
Ted, he of the cowboy lid, is with us.
Tes, Ted Cramer is the red-faced youth
who perks up around the Corvallis
country, where he is regarded as a
wide-awake young man and capable of
attending to the duties of graduate
manager of student activities at Oregon
Agricultural College, which we will
6ay he is getting away with in pretty
fair fashion.
Cramer was bubbling over with foot
ball gossip yesterday. He is trying to
line up the University of Oregon-Oregon
Aggie game for Corvallis, Satur
day, November 23. That is the date
originally scheduled, but as the Aggies
have signed to tangle with Washington
State on Multnomah field, Turkey day,
November 28, it is doubtful if they will
care to tackle Oregon five days before
the "Washington State game or play the
Pullmanites five days after clashing
with Oregon.
Classic Date Indefinite.
It might be agreeable to play Oregon
November 16, provided the University
of Washington-University 6l Oregon
game scheduled for that date at Eugene
is canceled. Nothing much has been
heard from the Puget Sound metropolis
about gridiron activities. Coach Hunt
has been retained at Washington, but
this does not 6ignify they will have
football. As soon as the Seattle offi
cials make known their intentions the
question of deciding the date of the
University of Oregon-Oregon Aggie
game will take place. As it stands now
it looks like the big Oregon classic
will be held at Corvallis, November 23.
The signed contract for the Wash
ington State College-Oregon Aggie
game to be played on Multnomah Field
Thanksgiving day was received by Cra
mer yesterday from Dr. Fred Boehler,
athletic director at Pullman. The Wash
ington State athletic authorities had
practically "okayed" the Turkey day
clash and yesterday's mail brought
forth the document which clinches the
game.
Corvallis Seras Contest.
Ted Cramer was in consultation yes
terday with George Bertz, manager of
the Multnomah Amateur Athletic Club
footballers, and endeavored to persuade
Bertz into allowing his Winged M war
riors to play the Aggies on Multnomah
Field October 19 one week from next
Saturday. The Foundation shipyard
eleven will play against the Aggies at
Corvallis either the first or second Sat
urday in November.
Nothing more has been heard from
the Mare Island Marines regarding a
same with the Aggies on Multnomah
Field some time in November. Cramer
thinks the battle can be staged, even
though the "devil dogs" are a bit high
on their guarantee, and if Spanish in
fluenza does not "gum" things up the
Aggies may be seen in action against
the Marines next month.
Cramer reports that Coach Harglss
has a pretty strong aggregation prep
ping up these nights at Corvallis.
Among those donning uniforms are a
number of former Franklin High School
gridiron stars.
Kranklin Men Work Out.
George Powell, who played tackle at
Kranklin two years ago and also cap
tained the team, is gradually shaking
off other aspirants for the fullback Job.
Powell weighs about 190 pounds and is
charging through the scrub defense
with the power of a 42-centimeter gun.
Three other former Franklin High
School gridders are trying out for regu
lar berths on the Aggie regimental
eleven Tucker, end; Badley, quarter;
Thompson, halfback. All three are
showing up well, according to Ted
Cramer.
"Duke" Hodler. former Columbia Uni
versity star quarter and halfback, who
quit building ships to take a fling at
the Student Army Training Corps, was
out in a uniform Wednesday night for
the first time and opened the eyes of
the Corvallis natives with his brilliant
Work.
Sam Dolan will referee the Vancou
ver Barracks-Oregon Aggie game Sat
urday at Corvallis. Coach Private
"Tick" Malarkey wanted Dolan to of
ficiate. ; but it was stated Sam would
take care of the battle at Eugene be
tween Oregon and the Multnomah Club.
The news that Dolan would act at Cor
vallis was pleasing news to the sol
diers. Dr. Fenstermacher will umpire
and Ruzek will be head linesman.
...
Lieutenant Sam Halsted, former
athletic officer at Vancouver Barracks,
sustained a broken shoulder during
football scrimmage Wednesday after
noon on the Vancouver athletic field.
Halsted will be out of the game the
balance of the season. He was for
merly a star track athlete at Stanford
University.
CHAMPION" HALTED AT FERRY
New York Babies Held More Impor
tant Than Pugilist Star.
Being a lightweight champion boxer
didn't cut much figure with an officer
of the law in the case of Benny
Leonard after his contest with Ted
Lewis at Newark. N. J., recently. It
ifiTL
appears that Benny jumped into an
auto immediately after the bout and
hit out for the ferry. He had injured
his right hand in the contest and
wanted to, get to his home in Harlem
as soon as possible and have it at
tended to.
Reaching the ferry they found the
boat practically filled. One of Benny's
enthusiastic friends Jumped out and
told the copper on duty that the
world's lightweight champion was in
the car and that he was in a hurry to
get to his home.
There was another car. loaded with
milk for New York at the ferry, and
the copper told the driver to board
the steamer, there being room left for
but one more machine. Then turning
to Leonard and his friend, he said:
"The champion can wait. It's more
important that those babies in New
York get their milk in the morning."
DUTHIE TEAM TO FLAY' SUNDAY
Tentative Arrangements Made for
Game With Standifer Aggregation.
There is a possible chance .that the
crack Duthie team of the Puget Sound
Shipbuilders' League will play here
Sunday. A game has been tentatively
arranged between the Standifer Con
struction Company's team and Duthie.
Because of the unsettled weather con
ditions Tom Standifer hesitated about
scheduling the game for Sunday, but
has taken the contest on condition that
he can call it off by telegraphing Sat
urday afternoon if rain is in sight.
The Duthie team is made up of some
of the biggest stars in the game. Tom
Seaton and Walter Mails are on the
pitching staff, while "Babe" Borton,
"Chick" Cunningham, Bobby Coltrin,
Frank Guigni, Roy Grover, Earl Sheeley
and other ballplayers of note are in
the lineup.
The Vaughn-street park could be put
into condition for baseball in a few
hours by scraping the sawdust.
ATHLETE FALLS BEFORE HUXS
Fred H. Becker Famous In Sporting
Circles in Iowa.
Lieutenant Fred H. Becker, reported
from " Washington as having been

NO SPECTATORS CAN SEE

If the officials of the Inter

to have Columbia University and
Hill Military Academy elevens
engage in their scheduled game
this afternoon, they will have to
close the gates to all spectators
except players, officials and
newspaper men.
This was the decision of Mayor
Baker, who last night ordered all
places of amusement closed. The
city executive first ordered that
no football games be played dur
ing the period that Spanish influ
enza holds forth, but when the
question of allowing the teams to
play out their regularly sched
uled game behind closed gates
was brought to Mayor Baker's
attention, he put his approval to
the proposition.

Franklin High School, last year's In
terscholastic League champions yes
terday trimmed Washington by the
score of 21 to 12 on Multnomah Field
before a crowd of 1000 spectators.
Washington managed to hold its own
in the first half, but in the final two
quarters Franklin took the aggressive
and plowed through the Washington
line for many big gains. At the end of
the first half the score stood: Kranklin
7, Washington 6.
Harry Thomas, plunging Quaker full
back, was the star of the game. He
made all three of Franklin's touch
downs. Reynolds also tore through
the opposing ranks time and again.
Clair Badley. brother of "Joy" Badley,
also played a good game at half for the
Quakers, and Cook, the other half, was
no slouch. Shryder, at right end for
Franklin, outshone the linemen and
proved a fearless player.
Johnny Haak, Washington right half,
was the shining light of his team.
Elliot Fallis, fullback; Schmechel, quar
ter; Dolp. left end. and Reinke, center,
scintillated along with Haak. Thomas
made Franklin's first touchdown after
several minutes of play by dashing 20
yards over its goaL He kicked goal.
The one touchdown was the extent of
the scorig in the first quarter.
The second quarter started with the
ball on Washington's 25-yard line.
Franklin failed to make yardage and
lost the ball. Washington then started
a Yankee drive. Haak took the ball on
the first down and raced 15 yards be
fore he was downed. Fallis next took
it for five yards and then Dolp was
given the ball and made 22 yards before
he was tackled, placing the ball on
Franklin's 10-yard line. Fallis took the
ball and made three yards. Washing
ton was penalized five yards for offside
Play.
Haak plunged through Franklin for
nine yards, putting the pigskin on
Franklin's three-yard line. Washington
fumbled and lost the ball. Thomas
punted out 30 yards. Fallis advanced
the ball eight yards. Schmeckel four
yards and Haak seven yards. Franklin
was penalized five yards. Quarterback
Schmeckel called for a center rush and
carried the ball across the Franklin
goal. Haak missed the goal kick.
Score: Franklin 7, Washington 6.
Franklin came back and started a
rush after the kickoff. A pass from
Reynolds to Shryder netted 25 yards
but the half ended before any scoring
could be done.
I Franklin resumed the drive in the
second half with Thomas and Reynolds
bearing the brunt of the offensive, but
their elation was soon dampened when
Thomas was forced to punt and was
blocked by either Haynes or Reinke of
Washington. Dolp, as left end, rushed
in. grabbed up the ball and ran 40
yards for a touchdown for Washington.
Score: Washington 12. Franklin 7.
About that time Franklin started to
display the fighting spirit that has
brought great success in athletics.
Thomas and Reynolds tore through the
Washington line with a vengeance and
could not be stopped. Thomas carried
the ball 10 yards. Reynolds took it
for 12 yards. Thomas came back for
seven yards. Badley went through for
two yards and Thomas again took the
oval and went five yards, breaking
through for his second touchdown. He
kicked goal. Score Franklin 14, Wash
ington 12.
Thomas scored the third touchdown
for Franklin in the fourth quarter
wnen we went -over tne top' on a
fourth down. He again kicked a goal

CAMP LEWIS MAKES START
ASPIRANTS FOR THE FOOTBALL
TEAM SHOW PEP.
Opening Game May Be Against
Foundation Saturday or Sunday,
Week, With Winged-M Next.
CAMP LEWIS. Tacoma. Oct. 10.
(Special.) Aspirants for the 1918 foot
ball team of Camp Lewis and the 13th
Division were out for practice the first
time early this week, and, judging from
the pep shown. Captain T. G. "Van"
Cook, athletic director for Camp Lewis,
is figuring on another famous eleven.
Workouts are scheduled every day.
starting at 3:30 o'clock P. M., and at
no time will less than three teams be
on the Camp Lewis athletic field.
Because of '.he. fact that several of
the companies have not organized as
yet In an athletic way, several of the
tig stars are yet to make their appear
ance. Already two well-known scin
tillating athletes of the Pacific North
west are donning the moleskins and
trying for positions on the cantonment
contingent.
Lieutenant Frank R. 'Red" Skadan.
around whom Coach William H. "Lone
star" Dells had expected to build a
world championship eleven' at the
Washington State College a couple of
years ago, is looking with keen eyes
at one of the backfield niches. Lieu
tenant Skadan was the big point
getter and all-around athlete of Lieu
tenant Everett May's 362d Infantry
Regiment team during the campaign of
the 91st Division here last Fall. At
that time he was a sergeant, but ha
was Bent to the Fourth Officers' Train
ing School and commissioned a Second
Lieutenant.
Corporal Ray Selph. last year se
lected as the all-Pacific Coast inter
collegiate center, while attending the
Oregon Agricultural College, is out for
the pivot position here. Corporal Selph
tips the scales around 200 pounds, and
is in the best possible physical con
dition. Just when the first game will be
played is hard telling, but Captain
Cook has ambitions of starting the 1918
season against the Foundation Ship
builders of Portland a week from Sat
urday or Sunday. Manager Oeorge ,
Bertz, of the Multnomah Amateur Ath
letic Club, of Portland, has been in
communication with Captain Cook, and
the result may be a match with the
Winged "M" institution in Portland,
October 26.
While no definite arrangements re
garding a schedule have been made, ef
forts are being made to tangle with
all the best independent and service
teams in the Northwest, and. if pos
sible, one of the big Middle Western
cantonments will be asked to pit its
football strength against Camp Lewis.
If possible, the United States Marines
of Mare Island will form some of the
opposition for the olive drab here be
fore the season is completed.
Last year the Marines took two hard
fought matches from the 91st Division,
and Captain Cook is desirous of turning
the tables during 1918. Practically
every one of the players on the 91st
eleven, are "over there." or have been
transferred to other cantonments, and
as a result an entirely new outMt will
have to be organized.
No coach has been named for the
Camp Lewis boys as yet, but, in all
probability, one will be selected for the
linemen, one for the backfield candi
dates and one to supervise both and be
the head coach. Several officers here
are being considered.

MOTOR TRUCK LIES
TO BE ESTABLISHED
Rural Freight and Express
Lines to Be Rushed."
GOOD ROADS ESSENTIAL
Julius 1,. Meier Tells of Decisions
of Conference With View to Re
lieving Railroad Congestion.
Oregon. Washington and Idaho are to
have more rural motor truck freight
and express lines, which will be estab
lished just as quickly as possible, for
every such line put into operation re
lieves tne railroads to that extent and
thus helps to win the war.
This is the word brought back from
Washington. D. G. by Julius L. Meier,
regional chairman of the tenth district
of the National Highways Transport
Committee, his district comprising the
tnree states named. Mr. Meier has been
attending a conference of the regional
chairmen of the Highways Transport
Committee, at which the. importance of
relieving railroad traffic congestion
through motor truck lines was dis
cussed from many angles.
1 lie committee fully realizes the vi
tal importance of the motor truck as
a transportation factor in winning the
war." said Mr. Meier. "Its work has
been organized to co-operate with the
railways In congested terminal dis
tricts to create rural motor truck lines
to take care of local freight and ex
press problems.
State to Be Divided.
"The work already beirun. not onlv
here, but throughout the whole United
States, of establishing these lines is
to be continued. Here in Oregon the
state will be divided Into districts un-
aer Amos Benson, state chairman, to
provide motor truck lines wherever
they can be operated to advantage.
"These lines are to be operated with
a view to giving the farmer the same
service at his door that the railroads
give at their depots. It can readily be
seen trow this will benefit not only
the farmer, by providing cheap and
speedy transportation on a regular
schedule, but also the whole popula
tion of the state, for the farmer's prod
ucts can thus be brouKht quickly and
cheaply to the consumer. At the same
time the railroads will be left free to
devote their facilities to the longer
hauls.
"The committee Is desirous that the
general public shall be brought to
realize the Importance of these motor
truck lines in" solving transportation
problems. Shippers, particularly, are
urgea to give fullest co-operation.
Farmer Itrlieved of Worry.
"Of course, it can readily be seen
that when the farmer Is assured of
transportation almost from his door-
yard to the consumer, ne will be ra
lieved of further worry about the dls
trlbulion of his product and this will
result In increased food production.
Such products as milk, eggs, vegetables
and garden truck will be brought to
the city the same day they leave the
larm.
Mr. Meier said that the organization
in Oregon, under State Chairman Ben
son, will probably be based on the di
vision of the state Into five districts.
eacn oi mem under a district com
mittee. After the organization la com
pleted down to county and community
sub-committees attention will be given
to establishing return loads bureaus,
through which the truck operator can
be assured of full loads in both di
rections.
Good Roada Essratlsl.
Good roads, Mr. Meier further pointed
out, are an essential part of the pro
gramme of the committee. It Is very
prooaoie mat in uregon the recom
mendattons of Mr. Meier will be acted
upon by the committee In urging upon
me capital issues committee at Wash
Ington approval of bond issues for Ira
provement of roads deemed necessary,
on the ground of their importance in
war work.
Incidentally, though Mr. Meier would
not discuss the subject, it is under
stood that while at Washington he wai
urged to accept the post of director
of finance and purchase under the
Highways Transport Committee. This
Is a very important position, and would
require his presence In Washington
continuously to direct the work.
MISS I1ARTLETT TAKES SWIM
New York Association Star Scores
119.3 Points in Champ Contest.
Miss Josephine Bartlett, of the New
York Women's Swimming Association,
won the National A. A. U. high diving
championship the other day at Throggs
Neck, Long Island Sound.
She ran up a total of 119.3 points, as
against 99.4 points scored by Mrs.
Bertha Tompkins, her teammate, and
87.8 by Miss Alice Lord, of Rye, N. Y.
The contest was held under the super
vision of the New York Women's Swim
