BARE OF WEIGHTY EVENTS
"Week Relieved of Absolute Dullness
Mainly by Exploits of Junior
There was little spirit shown In 'athlet
ics last week. In spite of the line, exhilar
ating -weather of the first few days.
There were no W? events. Football en
thusiasts had to be content with the ex
hibitions of the junior and academic
teams. These, however, amply repaid the
seeing. The younger teams this year are
splaying fast, snappy ball, with excellent
team work, and so far as star plays
Bo are in the first rank as spectacular
exhibitions of the game.
Preparations are going on apace for
ThanksglvingJay. which seems to have
outgrown the New England idea and be
come to American sports what Derby day
Us to those of England. No less than
three out-of-door events of more than
-usual interest are already scheduled in
Portland for that date the Multnomah
Oregon football game, riding at hare and
hounds, by the horsemen and women of
'the city, and the handicap golf competi
tion on the "Waverly links. There are
also approaching competitions in bowl
ing and billiards, with promise of future
wrestling bouts. The promoters of a
fiummer professional ball season are busl-
ly at work already, with excellent pros
pects of floating their project of a four
cornered Northwestern League.
Since the accident to George McMillan,
the Multnomah football eleven has been
practically demoralized, and there has
been little done, either toward tilling
McMillan's place, or in continuing to
build up the team. The plucky second
team, meantime, has been touring the
country winning honors, while the first
eleven has been content to nurse injuries
and wait for the Oregon game on Thanks
giving day. The Salem Athletic Club has
been clamoring for a contest, and so
has the public. No date has yet been
agreed on, but next Saturday has been
suggested. McMillan Is out of the game
for the season.
The only thing left for
the Multnomahs to do is to get together j
the ether ten men and "play ball."

The Team's Chances.
"With McMillan out of the game, the
chances of the team against Salem and
Oregon have been questioned. Heretofore,
there was no reasonable doubt, In the
mind of critical observers, that Multno
mah outclassed both teams. Multnomah's
defeat of Oregon was more conclusive
than Salem, although each made 5-0, and
the Oregon team played a better game
against Multnomah than a'galnst Salem.
The Salem team, however, has been
strengthened by the addition of Bishop,
the former Oregon half-back, while the
Multnomahs have been weakened. Sa
lem's score of 20-0 against Chemawa,
which eleven was tied, 0-0, by the Mult
nomah junior team, does not necessarily
Indicate the possession of an excessively
strong eleven. Even without McMillan,
Multnomah should be able to maintain
Itself against Salem, it having equally
good material and training. Against Ore
gon the same is true. The first game "was
won by the superior line, and this Is al
most Intact. Hard practice and quick
work should almost offset the advantage
of Eugene's week of constant practice la
But the team must work, and It must
play soma hard practice games,' to get la
shape for the contest of the year. As
the Une-up now stands, a good end must
be developed, the backs coached In as
sisting the line, and the whole team
strengthened, on the defense. Mathena Is
a likely possibility at end; Wilhelm Is
filling the doubtful guard position ac
ceptably. Professional Baseball.
During the week the promoters of the
professional baseball team have been
busy. Prominent business men have been
interested In the project, and affairs are
being placed In good shape for the raising
of the J5000 necessary capital to put the
Portland team on a sound footing. Grand
stands will be built anew, a new 'base
ball site will be located and graded,
fences built, and everything else arranged
for the opening of the season, If the
projectors meet with the success that
their enterprise merits.
When the Portland team is definitely or
ganized and officers elected a meeting
will be called and a league organization
effected, with Seattle, Spokane, Tacoma
and Portland as members. The reason
why the scheme Is being pushed so vigor
ously at present Is to complete the pre
liminaries as soon as possible, so that
baseball men may be signed for the league
teams at once. Good players, are plenty
now in the East, and the fact that sala
ries are not so high as in the palmy
days of '90 and '91, will tend to make
the financial end easier to manage.
Portland was a good baseball town
then, and should be now, although the
results of the recent amateur baseball
seasons have deadened Interest In the
sport. Crowds of 3000 and 4000 people
used to gather to see games, and the
same will be true In the coming season It
the league gets good players, puts up
gilt-edged ball, and conducts the sport
on the square and without rowdyism.
W. H. Lucas, president and secretary of
the Montana League, is one of the men
interested in the Northwest League, and
ho stands for the best Interests of the
game and straight, clean sport.
Future Golf Events.
On the links last week, during the de
lightful crisp weather, the golfers active
ly devoted their attention to practice for
coming events on the "Waverly course.
With the winning of the "knock-out"
tournament last week, by Mr. Young, one
of. th pleasantest series of matches that
has taken place ".on the course was com
pleted. So successful -was this tourna
ment, that a new series will be instituted,
with entries closing November 20. The
first round Is to be played off by the
Next Saturday there will be played off
the annual competition for the Blyth
medal, now held by Mr. Thomas Kerr.
This is a scratch contest, and rivalry
should be keen and interest high in the
individual matches. On Thanksgiving
day there will be a handicap competi
tion for men, In the morning, and for la
dles, in the afternoon. These are the
events for which enthusiasts are perfect
ing their "drives" and "approaches,"
buying new clubs and swift-flying golf
balls, and preparing their score books
for record-breaking competitions with
In Bowling Circles.
Uniformly low scores were made at the
Multnomah Club alleys Monday evening.
During the week Craft made the excel
lent score of 74, and Brlgham was close
up with 66. The lnterclub bowling tour
nament is on, and will continue to arouse
rivalry. The honor of holding the Fel
denheimer perpetual challenge trophy Is
at stake, and tho Commercial and Mult-
I nomah Clubs and Young Man's Christian
Association teams are taking a lively In.
t crest in the series. This week the iult-
nomahs bowl the Commercial Club on the
alleys of the latter. By the conditions
of the tournament, each team bowls two
matches with the other two teams, alter-
1 nattag on alleys, and the team with the
, highest number of games to its credit

annual coatests between the Commercial

OREGON PLAYED PLUCKILY
Bncene Lads Defeated in the Game
With. Stanford by the .Greater
Weight of Opponents.
STANFORD UNIVERSITY, Palo Alto,
Cal., Nov. 11. Although Dregon was
badly beaten by Stanford yesterday, It
was one of the most stubbornly con
tested games ever seen on a Western
college gridiron. Stanford was forced to
play ball, and to play hard for every
Inch gained, the plucky Webfooters put
ting up a game that would have done

credit to many an older and heavier
eleven. It Is the general "opinion among
Stanford men that Oregon is the toughest
proposition that they have dealt with this
season, and that had the Northerners
been a few pounds heavier, tho story
might have been a different one.
Tho Oregonians were outweighed, an
average of 16 pounds to the man, but
they put up a good, hard game, indulged
In no kicking or wrangling, and never
played for wind. Their sportsman-like
conduct won them golden opinions, and
they leave many friends at Stanford Uni
versity. Individual Play.
Captain Ziegler, the gritty little end, is
certainly one of the cleverest players in
the West. He played all over the field,
and his tackling made Oregon's left wing
hard to round. Ziegler was ably backed
up by Jakway and Smith, and every lit
tle yardage was made through their part
of the formation.
Tho center men were greatly out
weighed and were unable to resist the
powerful onslaughts of the cardinal backs,
although they played a steady uphill
game. Stubllng replaced Waddell In the
On the right wing Oregon was weak.
Thurston was no match for the clever
Traeger, and Bush was unable to break
through the solid interference which was
always there to protect the runner. Both
Thurston and Bush played stubbornly,
but they were up against weight and ex
perience that proved invincible.
Quarterback Scott was hurt In the first
scrimmage and retired to the back field,
Payno playing quarter on the defensive.
Scott exercised splendid Judgment in di
recting the plays and remained in the
game to the last, displaying an unusual
amount of grit.
Behind the line Smith was a tower at
strength. He was a sure ground-gainer,
and his defensive work, was superb, Starr
and Goodrich alternated at right half,
.both displaying equal defensive ability.
The line plunges made by Goodrich, in the
second half, placed many yards to Ore
gon's credit, but Smith was the surest
ground-gainer for the Webfoot team.
Fullback Payne made a number of
pretty line bucks and twice' used the
"kangOTOO leap" to advantage. During
tho game he made 13 punts averaging 3d
.yards, and his kick-offs averaged 45
yards, one of them landing within a few
feet of Stanford's goal. In the first
half he tried for field goal, but failed to
put enough force behind the kick and the
ball sailed under the crossbar.
Too much cannot be said of Stanford's
powerful offensive play. The formations
are quick, the backs fast and the general
team work is superb. Quarterback Raltt
is a splendid field captain, and Smith and
Hill are a pair of halves that can play
in any company. Big Seeley at guard.
Is one of the most valuable forwards,
and Traeger and Burnett are the best
tackles that ever represented the cardi
nal. A week ago Stanford beat the heavy
Reliance jleven by a score of 44 to 0.
Yesterday Berkeley was able to score
but 11 points against the same clubmen,
who, fn the second half, rushed the ball
to California's two-yard line. Unless
Berkeley's play shows a decided improve
ment within the next two weeks, Stanford
should win out on Thanksgiving Day.
The Oregon men have left for Berke
ley, where they play California on Satur
day. They were to have met Nevada on
the lfith Inst., but the Sagebrush team
has canceled the date, whereat the Ore
gonians aro greatly disappointed.
AMATEUR HARNESS RACING.
Movement Spreading: to Establish
Its True Status.
NEW YORK, Nov. 12. There is every
indication that the United States is to
become the great sporting center of the
20th century. Our pacers and trotters
have long outshone anything that could
be produced in other countries, and the
breeding ot blooded stork has been car
ried to such a stage of perfection here
that our horses are capturing some of
the biggest racing stakes In Europe.
Those who have watched the gradual
lowering of the records effected by our
crack favorites of the turf feel satisfied
that the limit of performance has been
far from reached, and it is probable that
the horse of the 20th century will show"
anything but a decadent type. In the
opinion of the most competent judges, the
coming American horse will stand head
and shoulders over his blooded prototype,
The unprecedented Interest which has
been manifested in sport recently by the
formation of gentlemen's driving clubs
throughout the country calls the question
In a very decided manner. An order to
pggRtE the love of true sport, it Is pro
popsed to organize a central governing
body for all the clubs in the country, so
that records maybe kept andabuses ex
terminated as far as possible.
The formation of driving clubs, amateur
associations and speedway organizations
has now extended to almost eevry city
and town of prominence in the United
States. In order to obtain the best re
sults from this interesting development it
Is felt to be highly desirable to adopt
soma system of regulating meetings, for
mulating general rules, and keeping abso
lutely authentic records which shall ap
ply solely and distinctly to amateur rac
ing, either to wagon, cart or sulky, as
may be the case.
With a view to the formation of such a
body, I am communicating with the offi
cers of the loading driving associations
throughout the country. I am preparing
to have a conference held at some cen
tral point in the near future, at which
delegates from all the driving associations
will be present. In reply to letters I have
sent out on the subject I have received
a very hearty response and undoubtedly
a thoroughly representative gathering of
owners of fast horses will be the result.
The organisation is absolutely a neces
sity, and will undoubtedly forward the
interests of true sport.

AMONG JUNIOR FOOTBALLERS.
Talk of Competitions, Pnst, Present
The game between the Portland Acad
emy and Portland High School was the
big event of a week ago. The Academy
team came out of the contest victorious
and won Its first football game since
football has been taken up by the stu
dents of that school.
The Bishop Scott Academy team also
lost in Astoria by a score of 18 to 0.
The local team was no match for the
Astorians, who are a lot of young play
ers of tho town and much heavier than
the cadet team. During the game Cap
tain "Monow, of the B. S. A. eleven, suf
fered a painful accident. A muscle on
his left leg was torn lose, but the leg
wa3 not, broken, as was first reported.
The Academy team Is gaining strength
every 'week and It hopes to defeat the
High School boys. A game between thrso
two elevens will probably be played
within a week.
Tho Portland Academy .boys aro much
elated over their victory In the game
with the High School team. They will,
most likely, not play a return game this
season, as their faculty requires them to
stop playing by Thanksgiving, and all of
their dates up to that time are filled.
Stillmanv the big guard of the team,
played an excellent game ror his side.
He blocked all the High Scool plays that
tried to pass him, and, on the offense, he
was always a factor in the Interference.
Williams made nrany gains by his line
bucks, and his punting was a feature of
the game. Warren played a hard game,
and made many gains, particularly tho
45-yard straight buck. Smith had a se
vere cold and did not play his wunl
game. The team will play with the UnN
verslty of Oregon freshmen November 24.
The second Multnomah team met the
Chemawa Indians yesterday for the cec
ond time this season. The eleven has
beon working hard for the last week and
the new men are rapidly getting in shape.
Captain Wood has resigned from his po
sition, and the new captain will probably
be either Hoibrook or Wllhelm. This team
will probably have games with some of
the Eastern Oregon players before the
season Is over.
The" Hlsb School.
The High Schcol team has secured Ca
tain McDonnell for coach. He is un old
timer at the game, has, as everybody
knows, played on the Multnomah's best
teams and was captain of the '97 team
of that club. The High School lads have
greatly needed a coach, and if they had
had one at the first of the season tho
Portland Academy boys would probably
not have had such an easy time with
them. The team will now be able to put
up a good game when It goes to Seattle
In the game with the Academy the men
back of the line put up the best play.
Connell and Trowbridge both made good
gains; Harkins played a good game at
full back, and Trowbridge made several
long punts. Woodcock, on the line. ply
ed a fair game, but on the whole, the line
was very weak. Frank Trowbridge
played a steady game at quarter. Few
of the fumbles made could be credited
Freshmen vs. Portland Academy.
The University of Oregon freshmen have
arranged for a football game with the
Portland Academy, to be played In Eu

sistant football manager for the 'Varsity
eleven, has the matter in charge, and final
arrangements have been concluded.

and that we are rapidly beoomlng a Na

The prominent business men of the
twentieth century will to a certain extent

reason that our large cities are becoming

It is an admitted fact that the physically
perfect, strong, robust mun Is the one best
qualified to battle with this world's af
fairs. The result Is that gymnasiums aro
going up all over the country, clubs aro
being organized for sport of every descrip
tion, such as golf, cycling, etc.; In fact,
everything Is being done to build up tho
body physically. In our new schools in
the City of New York the most impor
tant part of their construction is a well
equipped gymnasium. We d'd not have
those things 0 years ago. and the busi
ness men of today that are prominent and
elderly did not have a physical education,
but, nevertheless, the majority of them
came from country towns and districts
whore they were forced to take physical
education, in a natural way. suoh a
working on the farm and out of doors,
and taking good care of their bodies.
"Will He Stronger and Larger,
That the race will become stronger and
larger is also apparent, and the clearest
exemplification of this was the prom
inence of the American youth rnd their
superiority in physique and athletics at
the International Games held at Paris
'this year. While many exhibits from
America works of art, inventions, etc
were awarded prizes for their excellence,
nevertheless there was some doubt In
some minds as to the correctness of such
awards. The decision was questioned
and always will be, but on tho athletio
field, where it required life, strength and
physique, America Just swept the board.
The many comments that were heard,
of the wonderful physical ability of giants
like Sheldon, McCracken and Kranzleln,
spoke volumes for the future of tho
American youth. Tho words of the Em
bassador Ponler, at the banquet given in
honor of the American athletic victories
by Commissioner Peck, will never be for
gotten by thoso that heard them. Look
ing around upon the athletic assemblage,
"These are the men that in the future
will be our leaders. As they led the field
today In athletics, so will they lead In the
future our Armies and our Navies and in
the affairs of State."
Athletics are sure to benefit the Ameri
can race, as they have the English race.
Bngland is a great country and the home
of outdoor recreation, yet we Americans,
who have been only 20 or 25 years In tha
athletic field, have excelled England to
day in many respects; "In athletic com

That athletics and physical education go
hand in hand with the building up of the
grain, no one. can dispute. The old adage,
"A sound body makes a sound mind,"
holds good today. Our leading educators
of the present times are so Impressed
with the fact that there Is not a college
of any prominence that has not its well
equipped gymnasium and gymnastic In
structor, together with its football field
and crack teams, with specialists In
charge of eaoh department. Our clubs of
any importance have their gymnasiums,
Tho City of New York gives a fair ex
ample of endeavor to build up the youth
of the present day intb strong and robust
mon, in Its playgrounds for the younr.
The Outdoor Recreation League has sev
eral of these playgrounds in operation. It
Is a model institution of its kind. Is main
tained by voluntary subscriptions and
managed by men who devote their en
tire time and attention to it without any
compensation. Theso recreation grounds
are situated In our thickly populated dis
tricts, and their object is to give fresh
air and necessary exercise to the poo
children living in those districts.
Last year New York took up the ques-
'tkm of public baths and swimming. An
this goes to show that physical educa
tion and exercise is good for the system
and that the outcome will naturally be
that the next generation will be larger
