Corner First and Washington Streets
Wolverine State Aggies Clearly
Played Off Their Feet in
80C0 WITNESS WALKAWAY
Abraham Brightest Star In Contest,
Scoring Two Touchdowns Himself
and Being Classed as One of
Country's Greatest Line Men.
LANSING, Mich., Oct. 30. (Special.)
The Oregon Agricultural College foot
ball team this afternoon put the Michi
gan Agricultural team out of business
so quickly that the 8000 spectators did
not know what happened. Few of them
realize it yet. and possibly never will.
Outclassing', outblocking. outrunning
and outgaming their Eastern adver
saries, the Coast men garnered three
touchdowns while the Lansingites could
not cross the goal line. Cole missed
one goal from touchdown making the
score 20 to 0.
Fresh from their overwhelming de
feat of Yost's Michigan stars last week,
trxe Michigan Aggies almost looked
like high school boys before the on
slaught of the Corvallis men. Only
once was the Oregon goal in danger.
Then the ball was inside Oregon's live
yard line on first djwn, but the plung
ing backs of M. A. C, with all their
prowess and ability, could gain but
two yards in the tries allotted them
and Oregon took the ball away.
No Alibi Possible.
There is not a single alibi, not the
scintilla of an excuse ou which
Macklln's men can hinge any attempt
at sympathy. They were beaten from
the start, beaten by a team which used
the old, old combination of straight
football, plus fight. Fight seemed to
stick out of the Westerners from their
cleats to their head guards, it was the
middle name of each one of them. To
this spirit instilled into them by their
coach, should go much of the credit.
In addition they had Abraham, Billie,
Allen and Alsworth behind and an in
terference which made M. A. C.'s line
look like paper and bent back its ends
until they were jokes. Oregon s in
terference, the first of the four-men-back-of-the-line
kind seen here, was
so strong that M. A. C. never headed
it until it really scattered iitself. Cap
tain Blake Miller, Star Knd Henni'ng
and Gideon Smith, the great colored
tackle, all had to quit the game for
fooling with that interference. It was
quick, compact at the start and usual
ly carried a good punch in either hand
when it landed.
As a matter of fact, the Oregon men
did not need to extend themselves. But
two of the plays were tried, one for
ward pass and . one triple pass, but
beyond this, none of the open plays
for which Macklin was loaded, came
out of the box.
Abraham Brightest Star.
Abraham was the bright particular
star of Oregon's game, although he had
worthy support from every member of
the team. If there was any hole in
the Oregon team today, it was not
visible to the naked eye. As he ap
peared this afternoon Abraham is the
best line plunger this section of the
country has seen since the days of
Willie Heslon. Maulbetsch, Michigan s
star, does not compare with the exhibi
tion the Westerner gave and even
Syracuse scouts who watched the game
threw up their hands in horror, when
contemplating Abraham and his interference.
In the first quarter, Oregon started
to fight right oft" the reel. From the
kickoff. they worked the ball back to
the middle of the field, before being
forced to kick. There was an inter
change of fumbles and recoveries and
M. A. C. got the ball on their own
30-yard line From this point it
evident that X A. C. was up against
something new. Plunges failed to gain
and it was Oregon's ball on M. A. C.
33-yard line on a fumble. Then Abra
ham and his other backs started. They
worked up the 15-yard line, were
penalized, lost the ball on a fumble,
recovered it and finally came back
with a rush to M. A. C.'s five-yard line.
Abraham went over and Cole kicked
Abraham took the kickoff on his own
10-yard line, and with locey. Allen
and Alsworth helping, plunged back to
the 30-yard line. Smyth kicked to the
middle of the field. M. A. C. woke up
here and by successive rushes, aided
by a crisss-cross play, landed inside
the Oregon five-yard line, but Oregon
held for downs and Smyth kicked to
the middle of the field Just as the
Allen Makes Touchdown.
Fumbles by both teams and blocked
dropkicks covered the second quarter.
In the beginning Oregon got to the
M. A. C. 12-yard lino and Allen went
over for a touchdown, but the officials
ruled an offside play and M. A. C. got
the ball. From here on the quarter
was a kicking contest. Twice M. A. C.
got within striking distance and De
prat o tried for field goals. Once he
missed cleanly and was blocked the
second try. M. A. C tried several for
ward passes, but they were all inter
cepted, chiefly Laythe. The quarter
ended with the ball in M. A. C's pos
session on the Oregon 35-yard line.
In the third quarter, Oregon took
the ball from M. A. C. on their own
20-yard line, carried it to M. A. C.'s
45- yard line, and then had to kick. Ore
gon lost on the next interchange of
punts, but finally got the ball on their
own 16-yard line. They worked it
back to M. A. C.'s 25-yard line and were
forced to kick, more punts put the ball
in Oregon's possession on M. A. C's
47-yard line. By successive line bucks
and end runs on the part of Abraham,
Allen, Alswor.h and Billie. the ball was
carried right down the field and over
the line, Allen carrying it in the last
Stage. Cole kicked goal, score Oregon
14, M. A. C. 0.
Springer, for M. A. C, who took Cap
tain Blake Miller's place at half, in
jected some new life for the remainder
of this quarter, but his team could not
profit thereby and the quarter ended
with the ball M. A. C.'s on Oregon's
46- yard line.
Oregon Tears Through Line.
Abraham took Deprato's punt on his
own 28-yard line and then began an
other series of line plunges and end
runs by the Oregon backs which took
the ball right down the field without
a mishap. Oregon tore through the
line at will, it taking M. A. C.'s sec
ondary defense to stop them every time.
Abraham and Billie did most of the
gaining, although Allen and Locey con
tributed some. Abraham finally car
ried the ball over and Cole failed at
M. A. C braced a little here and. for
a wonder, gained first down twice after
the kickoff. but eventually Deprato was
forced to kick out of bounds on Ore
gon's 46-yard line. Oregon started its
march down the field again, but the
whistle blew Just as they reached the
20-yard line and it was all over.

Mnltaomah Clob Agrees to Use of Field
Thanksgiving Big Attendances
Although this year's state champion
ship football battle between the Uni
versity of Oregon and the Oregon Ag
gies will be played at Eugene, it is
practically certain now that the game
will be a Portland attraction next year
and for many seasons thereafter.
The Multnomah Amateur Athletic
Club has been dealing with representa
tives of ' the colleges and has agreed
to let them stage this big game as an
annual Thanksgiving day attraction. '
This will mean a switch in the dates
for the annual Multnomah-Oregon
game, which has been a Thanksgiving
day morsel for six or seven years.
"Yes, we have been approached by
representatives of the schools and
have agreed to let them have the
Thanksgiving date." said Dow V. Wal
ker, superintendent at the Multnomah
"The game should be played here,
and I think everything will go through
according to schedule. The Oregon
Aggies have been particularly anxious
to appear before Portland crowds for
two or three years, but the Eugene of
ficials have been backward for some
reason or other.
"1 believe that these two teams here
would draw 8000 or 10.000 spectators
next Fall, and more each succeeding
Fall thereafter. This game should be
made the real big thing on the foot
ball calendar in Oregon just as the
California-Stanford game was in San
