VETERAN PLAYER. STAR
JUcMillau Is Consistent Groiind
GaLncr, While Templeton Also
Docs Great Work Strong
Defense Put Up.
The Multnomah Club football team
continued Its victorious career yester
day afternoon on the Multnomah Field,
when It defeated the warriors from the
Catholic Young Men's Club, 9 to 0. in a
game that was featured by much line
smashing for large pains. The game
was won chiefly by straight football.
George McMillan, the veteran gridiron
hero, was an important factor in the
winning of yesterday's frame. During
the first half and part of the second he
played at quarter, and generated the
team in an effective manner. Changing
to right half late In the game, he alter
nated with Templeton in carrying the
ball, and the team marched down the
Held ten yar.is at a clip to the live-yard
line, where McMillan went over the line
for the only touchdown of the game.
His work was remarkable, and during
the time he played at. right half was
easily the feature.
Templeton, playing full for Multno
mah, In the game yesterday for 'the first
time this season, was another strong
player. He was responsible for the
larger part of Multnomah's gains, and
was good for an advance every time he
had the ball. Time and again he broke
through the line or tore around the
ends for gains of from five to 20 yard.".
One fact which makes the work of
Templeton even more praiseworthy was
that he had practiced only Wirre days,
and had learned the signals only the
right before. Templeton played a rat
tling good defensive game also.
Freak Place-Kick Made.
Three of the points obtained by Mult
nomah were the result of a place-kick
that was a freak. Stott booted the ball
from the 25-yard line, and It was
blocked by the Catholic line, only to
bounce from Katch's hands and pass
ever the cross-bar.
The Catholic team played a plucky
game all the way through, and two or
three times succeeded In getting started
down the field toward the goal. But
the Multnomah line was too strong, and
did not permit the Catholics to proceed
far at any time. .The Catholics prob
ably would have played Multnomah to a
standstill If they had not averaged 13
pounds lighter to the man.
Eatch, at right tackle, was a frequent
ground gainer for the Catholics and he
did some spectacular tackling. Perry,
at full, and Zander, at right end, were
In every play. The Catholic line was
stubborn and on three different occa
sions held the Multnomah men as they
were about to score.
The punting on both sides was weak,
with the advantage in favor of the
Catholics. Scott was strong in running
back the Catholic punts and did some
sensational work in this department.
Punt Blocked by Cherry.
Soon after C. Y. M. C.'s kick off in
the first half. Perry interrupted Mult
nomah's forward pass, but the ad
vantage was lost when Cherry blocked
a punt and Multnomah got the ball.
The ball was rushed to the Catholic

then M. A. A. C. was penalized ten

yards and then Multnomah fumbled

five-yard gaius by May, the Catholics
got the ball again and Eatch made sev
eral handsome gains. Perry made a
bad punt and Multnomah had the ball.
Multnomah then attempted a forward
pass but fumbled, the Catholics getting

First Touchdown Secured
After Twelve Minutes of
TOO WET FOR TRICK PLAYS
Coach Forbes Shifts Entire Line-up
and Uses 21 Men Methodists,
Outclassed In Weight, Put
Up Gritty Game.
SALEM, Or., Oct.- 30. (Special.) In
two gruelling 30-minute halves, played
on a field fully an inch deep in mud
and water, the football team of the
University of Oregon this afternoon de
feated Willamette University by the
score of 29 to 0.
Oregon's first touchdown was scored
on straight football after 12 minutes of
playing. After Willamette's klckoff
had been run back 30 yards by McKln
ley, Oregon was penalized five yards
for off side playing. With Clarke play
ing quarter, Sullivan. McKinley and Tay
lor carried the hall up the field until
Willamette caught an Oregon fumble.
After several punts, Oregon recovered a
fumble on the 20-yard line and Sullivan
crossed the line on the fourth plunge.
Clarke Successful at Kicking.
Two other touchdowns were scored
in the first half by Sullivan and Clarke,
and two more in the second half, Clarke
making one and Taylor the other.
Clnrke. who played a brilliant game at
quarter, kicked every goal but one.
Though outweighed 20 pounds to the
man and outclassed in every respect,
Willamette played pluckily and fought
every yard of the way. Low, the Meth
odists'" right end. had his knee serious
ly wrenched in trying to stop one pf
Taylor's plunges. Several other ' of
Willamette's light players were bat
tered considerably, but time was not
taken out once for an Oregon player.
During the first part of the game,
Little Booth, the Methodist quarter,
slightly outpointed Clarke, but the Ore
gon man extended himself at the fin
ish and made some 50-yard kicks.
Fancy Plays of No Avail.
The wet ball and slippery field made
open playing and trick plays out of the
question. Oregon only tried the forward
pass four times and Willamette twice.
On a fake punt and run of 30 yards,
followed by a long forward pass,
Clarke made 50 yards in.the second half,
but the ball was lost . on a fumble.
After the first few plays, Oregon played
a kicking game. '
Coach Forbes used the famous Yale
system of shifting his men and substi
tuting almost an entire new lineup in
the second half to good advantage. Ore
gon brought down 24 men, and every
one got in the game, Clarke, Taylor
and Mitchell being the only ones to
play through without change.
Latourette, at half back, made several
brilliant run backs of kickoffs and
punts toward the end of the game. Dod
son played a terrific game at end ana
Taylor made several sensational runs.
Bill Main and Scott did particularly
good work in the tackle positions. For

POLICE BREAK UP WRANGLE
Carlisle, Badly Outplayed by Penn
sylvania, Seeks Revenge in
Charge of Cnfair Decision
Against the Referee.
PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 30. The Uni
versity of Pennsylvania administered a
severe beating to the Indians in ono of
the most bitterly fought games ever
played on Franklin Field, the score being
29 to 6.
For the first .tjme in the history of that
famous athletic field, an ortlcial was
physically attacked by a player and a
policeman was called -upon to escort the
offending man and the coach of the
Carlisle team behind the lines.
- The trouble occurred in the middle of
the first half. Waseuka was ordered out
of the game on the ground that he had
tmUlnd ft Pennsylvania man,
who was out of bounds. Enraged at Um
pire Edwards' action, Waseuka atiacnea
the official nd struck him a hard blow
on tiie law. Other players quickly
stopped further hostilities:
Left Tackle retz, ol i-ennsyivania,
then came to Edwards' assistance and
his remarks and actions were such as to
cause the officials to order him from the
game. About this time Coach Warner
came running on the field. There was
an argument and Edwards summoned a
policeman and had both Waseuka and
Warner escorted behind the lines. In
the argument, it was asserted by Penn
sylvania authorities, Warner declared
that Referee Okeson, of Lehigh, was not
fair to the Indians.
When Warner's attention was called to
this, he said he did not charge Okeson
with giving the other side the game, but
said that he told Okeson that he had
given Pennsylvania a touchdown she had
not earned. Warner also said that he
told Okeson he was doing' all be could for
Later in the same .half an Indian, who
is said to have been a former player,
was removed from the side lines by Ed
wards for alleged offensive remarks.
Pennsylvania's game was by far the
best that it has played this season. The
bright star of the contest was Miller,
the Pennsylvania captain, whose splen
did end-running carried the ball half
the length of the field twice for touch
downs. The Indians' only1 score followed almost
immediately the fight which sent two
players from the field. Starting from
their 30-yard line Captain Libby made a
forward pass to Kewashe. The Indian
took the ball behind good Interference
and sprinted the entire distance tor, a
MICHIGAN DOWNS SVHACVSE
Demoralized Formation of Week Ago
AXN ARBOR, Mich., Oct. 30. Syracuse
was beaten 43 to 0 by Michigan this aft
ernoon. The Michigan formation, so
demoralized a week ago, was splendid.
The blocking and tackling, which have
been Michigan's weak points this year,
were the strong points of today's play
ing. The game was replete with sensations.
In the second half Wasmund took a
punted ball on his own 35-yard line, and
running through the entire Syracuse team,
covered the distance to Syracuse's goal.
Ten minutes later Borleske, Michigan's
left end, received a forward pass from
Allerdyce and raced down the field 45
yards for a touchdown.
WEST POINT CADET TERRIBLY
HCRT IN GAME.
Taken From Field Unconscious and
Partly Paralyzed, Byrne May Not
Survive, Physicians Say.
WEST POINT, Oct. 30. Eugene E.
Byrne of Buffalo, member of the senior
class 'of the United States Military
Academy and tackle on the Army foot
ball elevn, lies in the cadet hospital
tonight, semi-conscious and partly par
alyzed because of injuries received to
day in the game with Harvard, when
he was subjected to terrific pressure in
a scrimmage. His condition is critical.
The accident, following closely upon
the injury to Midshipman Wilson, who
.sustained a fracture of the fifth verte-V-u.
or Annnnolis two weeks ago, has
aroused a feeling of uneasiness among
the cadets that the Government may
take some action to curtail football.
Byrne, who is 21 years old, is a gon
of John Byrne. ex-Chief of Police of
Buffalo. The father attended the game.
When he saw his son lying unconscious
on the fie'd after a scrimmage, he
sprang from his seat and ran to his in
jured boy and helped take care of him.
Mrs Byrne was informed of the acci
dent tonight, and will arrive in West
Point in the morning.
The Army surgeons are attending
young Byrne and they hope for his ul
timate recovery, but his condition is ex
tremely grave. Young Byrne weighs
176 pounds and was strong and robust.
The fact that a complete diagnosis has
not been made leaves the possibility
that Byrne may have been injured in

SPOKANE, Wash., Oct. 30. (Special.!
The eleven of the University of Idaho
was simply smothered by a team which
outclassed them In every department of
the game when it met the University of
Washington this afternoon at Recrea
tion Park. Tiie score was 50 to o. The
Coast men were larger, stronger, had
superior Jeam work, were better trained
and the unity of every play and the
ready response to every signal made
Idaho look as if it were a high school
eleven against the magnificent champion
machine. , '
Idaho played desperately, but it was
mostly Individual effort that gained any
substantial yardage. Tho Interference
that characterized the runs of the Wash
ington team was so manifestly lacking
In the Idaho contingent that comparison1
would be ludicrous.
One Field Goal Is Made.
When the ball was kicked oft at 2:r
o'clock. 2000 .enthusiasts were in th
grandstand and on the siuo lines. Inside
of seven minutes, Washington had made
a touchdown and kicked goal. From that .
time on i was a procession. Idaho
tried forward passes in vain, not one
gaining any material advantage, while
at least three attempts wi re muffed and
placed the ball in Washingtona hands
within striking distance of the goal.
With the exception of a pretty field
goal kicked by Coyle, who was a host
in himself in his punting and kicking, the
scores were made by straight football
plunging, varied at intervals by short
runs, and by a series of forward passes
on Washington's part. Washington's
team is the strongest seen in the Inland
Empire for many years.

SEATTLE TEAM COMING
SECOND FOOTBALL ELEVEN TO
MEET HILL MILITARY.
Lincoln High Gridiron Squad Will
Be Seen on Multnomah Field
The Hill Military Academy cadets will
meet the strong eleven from Lincoln High
School of Seattle, Wash., next Saturday
afternoon on Multnomah Field.
This will be H. M. A.'s big game this
year. The S. attle school has a powerful
team, and for several seasons has laid
claim' to the Northwest Interscholastic
championship.- H. M. A. also has aspira
tions for that championship, and the
cadets are straining every nerve to be
the first Portland school that lowers
This will be the first time this year
that a 9eattle school hs been brought
to Portland, and it will also be the first
crossing of swords between H. M, A.
and Lincoln. So it is not to be wondered
at that the cadets are working harder
that they have ever worked before to
win this game.
Coach Reinhart is slowly perfecting a
scoring-machine that will keep tho foot
ball warriors from the Sound exceed
ingly busy. Yesterday's game with New
berg High, in which the cadets rolled up
a score of G4 to 0 without great diffi
culty, shows what they can do if once
they get fairly under way. However,
the cadets fully realize how hard the
game With Lincoln High will be. and that
it will be principally a contest of en
durance and condition.
As far as football is concerned, the two
teams are just about evenly matched, al
though Seattle will have the advantage of
weight by several pounds. So far each
school has been defeated once this year.
Lincoln by Tacoma High, score 4 to 5,
and Hill by Pacific University, score
6 to 6. .

up a pretty contest. Willamette scored
