out of the way as a rival attraction.
Interest among sport followers wttl be

beginning of the struggle for the
Northwest Conference championship.
Two Important conference games will
be played In the week. At Walla Walla

Whitman's fast team next Friday. Octo

universities of Washington anrl Idaho
clash In their annual football battle at
The first conference game of the year
was played Saturday, while this article
was bo Inn written, between Idaho and
Whitman, at Walla Walla. The result
of tliia game will give the first trust
worthy ' fnformatlon that has come out
concerning the real merits of any of
the college elevens and their fitness to
go through a hard season, for most of
the cochea have tried to conceal their
actual strength In the practice games.
It will also have an important bearing
on the games to be played thla week
by these colleges against Washington
and O. A. C and should be tnken into
account In figuring the probable scores.
In most quarters Whitman has been
pl-ked by football authorities to win.
'Oreironlans will follow with consid
erable Interest the game Friday be
tween O. A. C- and Whitman at Walla
Walla. 5o much has been said about
the Oregon Aggies" poor chances this
year that there Is much curiosity to
see Juat what Coach Metzger's men will
be able to do against players of the
same weight and mettle. The Joss of
Wolff, their star punter and halfback,
who 1 reported to have been fired from
'the. squad by Metager for breaking
training rules, has undoubtedly weak
ened the team. Wolff was a finished
player. His punrfs. while not so long j
as Clarke's, of Oregon, or Eakln's. of
Washington, had a peculiar twist that
made tham very hard to handle, and he j
was a ternnc une-smHener. nuiu,
..however, has alwaya had the reputation
of being somewhat difficult to handle.
If this really was the trouble. Metzger
did the best thing for team discipline
and team spirit and play In getting rid
O. A. C. Has. Few Old Mem.
With the loss of "Wolff. O. A. C. will
go into the Whitman game with only
three old men Captain Bvendon at left
tackle. Keck at full, and Endberg at
" half. Practically all the rest of the
" team ta untried material, composed of
men who never before played football,
some of whom had hardly seen a game
before this season. The combination
.was tried a week ago against the light
tram of Pacific I'nlversity. and resulted
In a 21 to 0 victory for O. A. C. This
game cannot be taken as a fair test,
however, for Paniflc i" not In a class
with any of the conference teams. The
game did show thai in Brlethaupt at
end. Gilbert at quarter and Bergman
at half. Metiger has picked up three
live ones. Much all-around develop
ment was shown over the alumni game.
Metzger's line-up next Friday"; will
probably consist of Dunn, center; Pavls
and Hawley. guards; Dlnges and Even
don, tackles; Huntley and Brlethaupt,
ends; Gilbert, quarter; Endberg rfnd
Bergman, halves, and Keck. full.
Against this team Whitman will-put
m tUe field a fast, aggressive line-up,
composed for the most part of seasoned
veterans. With only a few exceptions.
Whitman's eleven this year is the same)
as last, and Coach Blarichard has
ramnded out a team that plays hard
ball and fast ball all the time. The
Missionaries will probably underwelgh
' O. A. C. several pounds to the man. but
they, will offset tlTTs with greater speed
and better team work than -Metzger
rould possibly hope to get into his men,
'n the short time ne has coacnea them.
Whitman has shown splendid form In
several practice games played thus far.
Her backs, including the tricky Bor
ieske, seem able to carry the ball along
by the old straight football as well as
. with the lightning forward passes and
sudden trick plays uon which they de
pended much last year. A week ago
the team beat Milton College. 55 to 0,
' in 10-mlnute halves. In which a partic
ularly good showing in straightaway
.'ootball was made.
Whitman's prospective line-up Is as
follows: Clemens, center; Morrow and
Matthews, guards: Nelll and Wlllson,
rarkles; Fee and Blomquist. ends; Belt,
quarter; Borleske and Johnson, halves,
and Cox. frill. If none of the Whit
man players Is laid out "In the Idaho
fame. Whitman will stand a strong
'avorlte over O. A. C.
Bearish Stories on Washington,.
Thos who expect the final fight for
the championship to narrow down to
. Washington .ami Oregon, will attend
closely the work of Coach Doble win
ning football, machine of last year
against Idaho Saturday. Some decided
ly bearish storlea about injuries, men
out of condition. Indifferent training
and the like riave been coming -from
thex Seattle' University ever since prac-,
tice "began there. If they are all true,
hardly a man on the Washington squad
should be able to walk around by him
self by this time, for the Seattle scribes
have reaped a horrible hardest of twist
ed knees, broken , bones, wrenched
backs and bruised muscles. The most
persistent tale , Is to the effect that
Eakln, the big tackle and brilliant
. punter, has a bad knee that will prob
ably keep him out of the Idaho game.
- and perhaps on the sidelines all season.
This would be about as hard a blow
as Washington could well receive, for
Eakln Is one of the greatest players in
the Northwest. His loss In the punting
department would be especially severe.
Washington has called off the game
scheduled for yesterday against Whit
worth College, on the alleged ground
that Whitworth Insisted on playing
several men who should have been In
eligible by conference rules. Whit
worth does not belong in the confer
ence, but Poble evidently considered
them a rather tough proposftfbn for
his team to meet just now, and "can
celed the match on this excuse. In a
practice game against the Cruiser Mil
waukee team recently, the Washington
varsity ran up a score of 39 to 0, In
spite of rather ragged playing. Cgach
Poble tried out two men for almost
every position, only May, formerly of
Cornell, and the two big- Grimm broth
ers going through both halves. It will
take a good deal more than ragged
work In. a few practice gSmes, how
ever, to convince, most people that
Washington will not hare a team fully
as strong as last year's championship
aggregation, nine members of which
are now oji the eleven. One new man
who is making a spjendld showing la
Baker, lust year of Pendleton ' High
School, who Is being used at full and Is
doing much of the kicking while Eakln
Is out of play.
The team Washington sends against
Idaho will average about 134 pounds,
and will line up about as follows: Cap
tain TegPrneler, center; guards, Grif
fiths. Swarva. Pullen; tackles. May,
"Polly". Grimm; ends. V. Grimm. Matt
son; quarter, " ""Wee" Coyle, Cook;
halves, Taylor and Mucklestone; full.
Baker. Eakln may also be In shape to
play. " ''.
- Though Idaho succeeded In scoring
26 to 5 against the University of Puget
Sound recently, the game with Whit
man will give a better line on what
kind of a team Coach Grogan has de
veloped In the first season In the North
west. The first-named game, however,
showed that Idaho is very weak In
straight football, and must depend on
open play almost entirely. From the
"dope," Washington should, win.
The Idaho team will be much lighter
than Washington, and the line-up will
be about as follows: Jewell, center;
Captain Stokesberry and Hayes, guards;
Graves and Williams, tackles; Arm
strong and Shangnon ends; Curtis,
quarter; Lundstrom, Hill:rmn" and
Thornton, halves; Montgomery, fulL
Five of these men are experienced

UNIVERSITT OF OREGON, Eugene,
Oct. 23. (Special.) Sectret signal work
and blackboard practice ha been in
augurated by Coach Forbes to, prepare
the Oregon varsity team for the game
against Willamette University at Salem
next Saturday. The Methodists made
such a good showing against Multnomah
a week ago that Forbes is unwilling to
take any chances. . .
From present indications the varsity
eleven will be In its best condition of the
season when it enters this game. During
the past week speclafatrention has been
directed to perfecting- teamwork. The
whole backfleld now works together like
'Among those who are making the best
showing Just now may be mentioned Bill
Main, last year one of the shiftiest and
hardest playing halfbacks in thej North
west. This reason Main has been shifted
to right tackle to fill he big hole left
vacant bv the graduation of Fred Moul-,
len. Main is probably the fiercest tackier
on the squad. He weighs 178 pounds and

Jack Hlckson at right end is a hard
tackier and one of the fastest men on
the eleven. Hlckson is especially good
at running down on funts. his playing

Moores and Weary Chandler, Oregon's
star ends of several seasons ago. In con
dition Hickson strips at 165. '
Chuck" Taylor at half is a former
Hill Military Academy player. Taylor
ia very shifty and is very dangerous In
a broken field. He Is a hard Une-plunger,
and though, he weighs only 165 pounds, is
a consistent ground gainer.
McKinley, another backfleld man. has
been somewhat handicapped by early sea
son injuries, but ia fast rounding Into

G'lles is playing the best game In his
career at guard. This Is hie third year

Player Seem Unwilling Con
testa Daily This Week.
Promoters of the Grammar School
Football League are experiencing diffi
culty In getting scheduled games under
way. All four; of the games to have
been played last week were postponed.
Parental Interference seems to be the
chief cause of the trouble.
The games scheduled for last week
were postponed for various reasons.
Montavilla andArleta did not play be
cause the Arleta lads thought they were
too light for the other, team. Stephens
and Creston called the game on on the
excuse of too much moisture. Irving
ton 'and Highland could not play be
cause' all the boys' had not brought
written statements -from their parents
relieving he principals of the schools
from responsibility in case of injury.
The Shaver-Eliot match was postponed
because some members of the teams had
not been qualified by th'e principals to
play. - .
Parents of the aspiring gridiron he
roes seem unwilling In many Instances
to let their boys play, and are inclined
to sluff responsibility for injury onto
the school principals.
The rule In all the schools Is to re
quire all boys competing on athletic
teams to maintain a grade of 75 per
cent In class standing and 85 per cent
In general application. They must also
secure permission from their parents
before they are allowed to compete on
any team. .
It is understood that all the remain
ing games scheduled will be played
without a failure, as the boys have all
been qualified by both parents and prin
cipals. Mount Tabor and'Cllnton Kelly
will play 'tomorrow afternoon at i
o'clock at East Thirteenth and Davis
streets. These-teams are in the heavy
weight class. Other games are sched
uled for every day this week.

Is Candidate "for Tackle on
Back Field Position.
OREGON AGRICULTURAL, COLLEGE,
Corvallis, Oct. 2S. (Special.) Bad
weather and a large list of cripples
have made It Impossible for Coach
Metzger to give his football men the
hard workout which he had planned
for the past -Week- Injuries sustained
In the game with Pacific University put
several men out of the practice "on Mon
day, and the , pouring rain and flooded
field made It impossible to do anything
but light signal practice In the Armory
the following two days. Tne.men were
given a hard scrimmage Thurrsday, but
because of the game with the Catholic
Association team the following day,
very little cpuld be done on Friday-.
Despite the limited practice, however,
there have been several significant de
velopments. The most encouraging event was the
return of Wrallace, who withdrew from
the squad shortly after the opening of
college, because his college work
threatened to be too exacting to per
mit him to play. His return will in'all
probability mean that either Hawley or
Davis will be displaced at guard, . The

CHALMERS-DETROlf "40" SETS NEW RECORD IN
GREAT FAIRMOUNT PARK ROAD RACE
In the 202-mile race over Fairmount Park course in Philadel
phia, October 9th, the Chalmers "40" won the Consistency prize,
' a special distinction offered to tlie car which, in the opinion of the
officials of the race, should do the most consistent work. At the
finish it was not a matter of opinion which car was entitled to the
prize It was a matter of FACT.
The "40" driven by Bert Dingley did not stop a single time
during the entire race; although going at top speed all the time, it
literally ran like a clock.
It was a big-car race, in which, from the standpoint of power
nd price, the "40" would have no show.

ably driven by Bert Dingley, emerged from the race with new
laurels, for it was a good second, and made the running during the
major part of the way. It was the Chalmers-Detroit alone that
kept the affair a race; otherwise it would have been a runaway.
Although the car beneath him was less than half the horsepower
of its rival, and although he was pitted against the foremost of

during the gTeater pari of the race was not more than three or",
four minutes behind the leader."

as picked by the coach, are freshmen.
Mitchell, center, played with the Eugene
High School last year, and is strong and
faet at 182 pounds'. Bailey, left guard,
is also a Eugene High product. Though
only 18 years old, he tips the beam at
248 pounds and Is wonderfully aggressive
for so heavy a man. Dean Walker, at.
fullback, is the other successful fresh
man. TValker made the place through
his terrific line-mashlng and sturdy de
fensive work in that Ijofition for the
freshmen eleven. He comes from Colum
bia University, at Portland. '
Captain Clarke has been shifted from
his old place at fullback to left half. He
Is not a stranger to that position, how
ever, -for In his freshman year at Oregon
he played half during the whole season.
Bill Main at right tackle is filling the
hole made by the graduation of Fred
Mou'.len. Main began the season In his
old position behind the line, where he
was one of the mainstays of the eleven
last year, but -he was needed at tackle
and Forbes shifted him there. Math
weighs ITS pounds. He Is built much
like Frank Templeton, the famous Ore
gon halfback of several seasons ago.
Pinkham, at lert tackle, is in the same
position he has played for the past three
years. He is 20 pounds heavier than last
year and Is playing right now the best
game of his life.
Hickson and Michael .are extremely fast
and hard-tackling ends. , Both played on
last year's teams, when they were fresh- .
men. Latourette, at quarter, excels In
running back punts and Is handling the
team well this seasfin. Gilles. at right
guard, ia harder and heavier than he has
ever been and -Is playing a plunging game. .
In. case of injury to Mitchell he will be
alternated at center. He Is valuable as
an all-around player. "Chuck" Taylor,
at half, played the same position here
two years ago.
In all probability most of the second
team men will play In the big games, for
It has been part of Forbes' system of
coaching to produce two teams almost
equally good, putting In almost an entire
new lineup of seasoned players in the
second half and running the opposing
team "off Its feet. . Oregon's next game
is at Salem, against Willamette. October
30. On November the Multnomah Club
will play here.
