College football team when it returns
In mid-week from its 20-0 triumph
over the crack Michigan Aggies at
No such victory beyond the Rockies
by a Western football team has been
won in many years and the Portland
Chamber of Commerce intends to cee
that the Oregon Aggies get the proper
glad hand for their accomplishment.
The Aggies will arrive in Portland
on Wednesday morning at 7 o'clock and
will be met by a band and a parade,
in which all the high school football
teams in the city have been asked to
participate. They will be escorted to
their hotel and at noon will be the
pruests of the Chamber of Commerce
at a luncheon at the Chamber. In the
afternoon and evening the Land Show
will be thrown open to the returned
Congratulatory Telegrrama Sent.
Dozens of telegrams were tent East

"1 can't realize that Coach Stewart's
team won," remarked George Carlson,
one of the former Aggie linemen, when
he heard, the joyful news. "It doesn't
And Carlson was not alone in voicing
these sentiments. Everything in the
dope pointed to a victory for the Michi
gan Aggies by a score of about 50 to 0.
Dozens of small wagers were made dur
ing thu week that the Michigan margin
would be at least 50 points, and Michi
gan money giving 30 points went beg
ging. A soothsayer could have reaped
a fortune had he known the outcome
AKBles Not Counted.
Perhaps the Oregon Aggies would
have been figured as an outside chance
were it not that they went down to a
29-0 licking at Corvalis only a fort
night ago at the hands of Washington
State College. When the Michigan
Aggies overwhelmed the crack Michi
gan squad, coached by "Hurry Up"
Yost;" by a score of 24-0, the Western
fans threw up their hands in dismay.
Nobody could well concede the Corvalis
crew even an outside chance to win.
Michigan proved yesterday by hold
ing Syracuse to a close score that its
team is fully up to its former standards.
Y et the Michigan Aggies beat Michigan
24-0 and the Oregon Aggies beat the
Michigan Aggies 20-0. These compara
tive scores prove that the class of foot
ball in the Pacific Northwest is as
Kood as that in any section of the
Assies Yet to Meet Syracuae.
Further comparisons can be made on
December 1 when the Oregon Aggies
are to meet Syracuse University in
Portland. Syracuse held Princeton to
a 3-0 uropkick a fortnight ago, and also
defeated Michigan 14 to 7, so is one
of the select blue-ribboners.
One sure bet is that Coach Diet?, of
Washington State College, is as happy
about the 20-0 Lansing score as Coach
Stewart himself. Dietz' bunch beat
Oregon 2S-3; one week later over
whelmed the Oregon Aggies 29-0, and
yesterday showed that these were no
lluke wins by giving Idaho Its worst
beating in the history of the institu
tion. From all indications Washington
State hus the strongest football team
in America, barring none, and the Un -versity
of Washington can consider it
self lucky for having dodged a game
with the Pullnianites this year.

CHICAGO. Oct. 30. In one of the

goal from touchdown, with Eber Simp
son kicking, accounted for the one
point difference, for each team scored
The Maroons outplayed the Badgers

guilty of bad fumbling. Wisconsin had

er covered it. Minnesota advanced to
the one-foot line, but the Illinois line

Interesting Notes From Local
HARRY PRATT, professional at the
Portland Golf Club, is a lover of
horses. His particular hobby is Jump
ins. "I would rather ride a horse
over a seven-foot hurdle than make
this course in nine strokes." said he
the other day in -conversation with
William Walter, the crack jump pilot
of the Portland Hunt Club, who is
thinking of breaking into the golf
game. Mr. Pratt has had several hur
dles erected on the club property and
he intends to try his hand at Jumping
during the Winter months.
The Spokane Country Club holds a
novel annual tourney for the husband
and wife championship of the club.
This year Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Graves
and Mr. and Mrs. C. E. McBroom tied
for the "Benedict cup," with net
scores of 90. The Graves team made
94, with a handicap of four, and the
McBroorcs 102, with a handicap of 12.
Frank Paris, a well-known local
golfing member of the traveling fra
ternity, returned recently from a swing
around his territory with the informa
tion that great interest is being taken
in golf all over the Northwest. He
thinks the Portland clubs should en
gage in interclub tourneys with the
organizations around Puget Sound as
well as with Eugene.
Ferguson Harper, who travels for
Lowengart's, with headquarters in Spo
kane, was a Portland visitor during
the week and here's a new one off the
"Over at Spokane not long ago a
new golfer took such a pride in his
game after his first few rounds that
he invited his wife out to see him per-,
form," said he.-
"So, in the presence of his wife he
teed his domino, took the proper
stance and swung at it like a hockey
player shooting for the net. He
missed it by about four inches. Again
he took his preliminary waggles, an
other lunge and the ball remained un
touched and then a third, all over the
ball, but delivered with terrific force.
"Finally, after the third wild hay
maker, his wondering wife broke the
suspense and about $1.98 worth of golf
etiquette by innocently remarking:
"Oh, I think it's a wonderful game:
but what's the idea of the little ball?"
The Navy-yard Golf Club, at the
Puget Sound Navy-yard, has a member
ship of 42 and six names are to be
added soon. The bogey of the nine
hole course is 35 and the par 32. Com
mander G. B. Bradshaw Is president.
Despite the war the last nine hole
of the Vancouver Golf and Country
Club will be opened to play next
Spring and the fond hopes of the club
men will then be realized. Four years
ago they opened the course and things
have been progressing slowly. The
club is located 20 miles from Vancou
ver and 10 miles from New Westmin
ster and a number of its 250 members
are from the latter town. While the
title of the gclting organizations is
known as the Vancouver Golf .anC

One week ago the Portland Golf Club
closed a contract to purchase its pres
ent 113 acres eight miles south of the
city aftoz looking- into various propo
sitions. Among these was one for 3
10 years' lease oni some property in
Eastmoreland Up at Olympia. Wash.,
the Golf and Country Club has had this
same matter to wrestle over and it has
now been decided to take a purchase
contract on the links at Lacey, now
held under a 3hort lease.
Rudoloh Wilhelm. state golf cham
pion of Oregon, has wished himself into
a game that will call forth all his
skill and astuteness with the clubs.
For a side bet of $13 he will endeavor
to beat S. A. Gibbs. Jr.. 18 holes

other words. If his opponent shoots a
96 he will have to go 78 to halve. The
match will be played today at the
Portland Golf Club, if all goes well.

NEW YORK, Oct. 30. That the plea
of French breeders of thoroughbreds

Among those Americans who will be
especially interested in the decision of

William K. Vanderbilt, Herman D. Dur

maintains studs or racing f tables in
France, and while they took no notice
able part in tne agitation against the
edict which warranted the Govern
ment's refusal to permit horses to leave
the country, they were nevertheless
desirous of- bringing here such of their
horses as were not needed by the mili
Mr. Belmont's Frerleh stud contains
a number of royally bred yearlings,
which, with the total absence of racing
and none in Bight, soon may be brought
here. It is known that .Mr. Duryea was
anxious to get some of his horses out
of the country, while Mr. Widener en
tertained similar Ideas when the edict
was in effect.
The authorization for exportation of
yearlings. 2-year-olds and stallions
born in 1907 or previously, which had
served stud for three years, will be ac
cepted by the many breeders, who have
all but been ruined by the stopping of
racing and tfie consequent shutdown
of a market for thoroughbreds, which
can only exist when racing tests are
The decision to permit horses to be
exported comes about 10 days too late
for those Americans who would have
welcomed an opportunity to make pur

threatened. Washington was slow at
times and failed repeatedly with the

the most recent upset coming last
Wednesday afternoon when Lincoln
won from the Washington High eleven
by the score of 6 to 3 on Multnomah
The next battles of the circuit come
this week, when Washington High
meets Portland Academy Wednesday
afternoon, and two days later Lincoln
High will be battling Coach "Admiral"
Dewey and his light Franklin High
contingent. Both games will , have a
bearing on the title of the league, as
both Lincoln High and Washington
High must secure wins in order to
keep in the running.
Washington High started the 1915
campaign like a "house afire," and
many followers of the circuit picked
Coach Earl's eleven to "cop" the title,
but the showing made in the last two
matches has changed that attitude.
Washingon lost its first game of the
season last Wednesday to Lincoln
High in the last quarter on one of the
most sensational plays yet exhibited
on Multnomah Field this year.
A contest of great consequence is
scheduled for November 9, with Co
lumbia University in line to meet Jef

ters considerable interest. Columbia
University, for the first time in years,
has been humbled twice in succes
sion, but a little rnore than a week
ago the collegians put an awful scare
in the Washington High aggregation.
Washington won by 9 to o. but with
a little more time there is no telling
what the final outcome would have
been, as Columbia was getting stronger
every minute and had their opponents
on the run.
Now as to the 1915 championship of
