Hard Struggle to Be Staged on
- Corvallis Campus. .
Walter Cordon, Bis Xegro Tackle, of
University of California, Re
pected by Army Medicos.
The Multnomah Amateur Athletic
Club football team will play the Ore
gon Agsries at Corvallis next Saturday.
The same was originally scheduled
to be played at Multnomah Field, bu
the state health authorities and Mayo
Biker ruled otherwise, owing to th
epidemic of Spanish influenza. It was
thought for a while that the gam
would be postponed until later in the
season, but yesterday Mamgar George
.Berts telegraphed Coach Hargiss, or th
Aggies at Corvallis. and asked if i
would be possible to stage the contes
on the Corvallis campus. Hargiss took
the matter up with the college author!
ties and last night telegraphed Berts t
bring th Winged-il eleven to Cor
vail Is.
Multnomah is going to Corvallis with
very intention of -quitting the skids
under the Aggie warriors. With a 20.
to-0 victory over Oregon dangling from
their belts, the clubmen are overflow
Ing with pep and plan on giving Coach
Hargiss crew a dose or the same medi
cine they handed out to Oregon.
Th injury to Lieutenant Peterson
will keep one of the stellar backfield
stars out of the game against the.
Aggies, but Manager Hertz has some
calcium reserves he is going to throw
into Saturday's game. Rehbein, who
formerly cavorted in the backfield for
Lehigh University, will be one of those
shirhted in -at fullback. Rehbein is
about the same build as Peterson. He
played tackle against Oregon and did
well. lie will have to show a lot of
stuff to b classed the equal of Peter.
son. but Berts is confident that Rehbein
Is going to made the grade.
The clubmen, have been practicing
three nights a week on Multnomah
i ieid and are showing up well. Mult.
xiomah boasta a more formidable eleven
this season than for a number of
years past.
The Aggie's 7-to-0 victory over Van
couver Barracks last Saturday at Cor
vallis has given the Corvallis soldier
students a good start, and George
Cusick. of Corvallis, who watched the
Aggies work out yesterday, says they
are showing up well and are going to
give Multnomah a battle.
"They are all youngsters." writes
Cut ick. "and every one of them is
fighter. Coach Hargiss has lots of pep
and tlie players put every bit of their
energy into the game for him. Mult
nomah will have to fight every second
to beat the Aggies.
The University of Southern Califor
nia is said to be turning out a good
football ream this year. The high
schools down around Los Angeles play
American football and under the plan
of turning th schools into Army camps
the boys were told to report -to the
nearest college. As a result, the Unl
versity of Southern California has the
pick of the high schools in the south
ern part of the Bear State.
Walter Gordon, the big negro tackle
of the University of California, was
recently rejected by Army medics. Had
the same gentlemen of the medical
reserve watched this Gordon person
bowl over the opposition in a game
played at Berkeley last Saturday they
would have thought twice before turn
ing Gordon down because the middle
finger of his right hand is doubled
over ro that he cannot straighten it
out. For that reason Gordon was not
wanted in the Army, despite the fact
that he Is a first-class football player,
a clover wrestler and a boxer who is
hard to beat. It is said he will later
be' used for limited service.

postponement, probably until about Ue

Administration at Washington.
The food pledge card drive depends
In no small measure for its success
upon the co-operation of schools and

though drive ornctais nave been chosen
and much had been don to get ready

On giving out the postponement de
cision Arthur M. Churchill, state chair
man of the campaign, mad a strong
plea for food saving as a voluntary
and deliberate service on th part of
the people of Oregon.
"Portland's war kitchen will soon re
open for service and instruction of
housewives of th city," said Mr.
Churchill. "There will be no lack of op

S. Pierettl and D. Bargalt were ar
rested, charged with violation of the
prohibition law and held for the Gov

dismantled and 1500 gallons of rich
red wine was seized and taken to po
lice headquarters.
Two huge vats capable of fermenting
2000 gallons each were built in the
basement, and other vats filled with
grapes in various stages of fermenta
tion also were found. It is believed
that the police at last have located the
source of the large supplies of wine
found -in different parts of th city the
last few months.
It is charged that Pierettl and Bar

large scale. It is said that they re

the pretense that they were proprietors
of a grocery store and as a result sev

Peace talk does not mean the termi
nation of the war anfl, regardless of
the attitude of the allies toward Ger
many now, there is to he no slowing
up of prosjresB In shipyards. Ships
are required today as well as a year
ago and they must be speeded with
the same spirit that has brought the
American shipworkers to the front.
That is being made plain to em
ployes of plants throughout the country
in messages sent personally by Edward
N. Hurley, president of the Emergency
Fleet Corporation. The messages re
ceived here were as follows: '
'No shipworker will make the error
of thinking for a moment that the
war is nearly over. America has just
begun to fight. In the coming months
our long preparation on the battle line
and in the shipyards will yield re
sults. Ship workers know the need
for continued record breaking. Every
ton of shipping delivered now is needed
to carry our boys to France. Every
ton launched now means force to the
utmost to really win the war next
Spring. Don't go by the war ma;
stop'; that still needs a lot of chang-
ng and the enemy still needs a lot of
licking. Tonnage will win the war
and bring permanent peace."
Mr. Hurley is admittedly in a posi
tion to grasp the full importance of
developments now pertaining to Ger
many. Also, he is credited with being
bent on advancing tho efficiency of
the new fleet and the ship plants to
safeguard future interests, should the
situation now viewed favorable for
peace be reversed through any action
xf the Germans, such as refusing to
abide by dictation of the allies when
peace is actually discussed by ac
credited representatives of the govern
ments involved.
There have been no Indications thus
far that the Government plans to can
cel immediately its shipbuilding pro
gramme should peace be made a real
ity. The United States is to enter the
commercial war to stay ;.nd the revival
of the merchant marine strength is
held to be permanent. Government aid
in other than marine construction
alone is looked for and the more ton
nage available to be operated on routes
leading to the principal countries ot
the world, it Is reasoned, the quicker
the prestige of America will be established.

Waterfront Fraternity Figures That

To date one case of Spanish influenza
has been reported aboard vessels of the
Corps of Engineers, U. S. A., in this dis
trict, being on the dredge Chinook, ly
ing at the Linnton moorings. It is
reasoned that there is less likelihood
of the ailment finding lodgement
aboard the pipeline dredges, because
living and working' quarters are more
open than aboard a vessel such as the
Chinook, though the latter is regarded
more properly ventilated than many
So far as has been reported, there
are few cases along the waterfront.
Dockmen assert that if fresh air is one
of the main enemies of the disease, the
beach should be immune, for few of
the docks could be classed, as con

Extra lifeboats and lifecrafts, as well
as similar gear demanded to be placed

on the assumption that they might en

reaching the office of United States
Steam Vessel Inspectors Edwards and
So far it has been insisted that be

to forego the additional boats and ap
pliances Is accepted as meaning the

davits, so extra boats may be put
aboard if desired.
Entrance Survey Deferred.
First, the lack of a tug to be held
constantly on the work, and how the
disturbing factor of southerly weather,
combined to delay the completion of the
September survey at the entrance to the
Columbia River. It was planned to
have the main channel sounded immedi
ately after the dredge Chinook ceased
operations the last of September, so
that the exact condition Of the dredged
area could be platted. There is no
question as to the depth being 40 feet
and more, also that the width reaches
half a mile, which completes the en-
rance project. At the same time the
data must be obtained at the first op
portunity. 1
