which both teams direct the strongest

However, those who have been able
to pierce the armor of secret practice
which has prevailed during the latter

OLD FOES TO MEET
Multnomah Eleven Plays With
Olympic Club Today.
TIE PLAYED YEARS AGO
Game at San Francisco Exposition
Today Is to Be Contested for
Championship of Pacific
Coast Athletic Clnbs.
When the Multnomah Amateur Ath
letic Club football team trots out on
the Marina at the Panama-Pacific In
ternational Exposition in San Fran
cisco, to meet the Olympic Club eleven
this afternoon it will not be the first
time these two institutions have met
on the gridiron.
In 1899 the local team battled to a
nothing-to-nothing count with the San
Francisco representatives, so today's
embroglio will open new hostilities.
The result of the game will give the
winner the 1915 club football cham
pionship of the Pacific Coast.
The players who are wearing the
winged "M" colors in the South today
are considered to be the greatest ag
gregation ever brought together under
the roof of the 'Portland club. Each
one has seen strenuous seasons on the
gridiron. The Multnomah Amateur
Athletic Club started playing football
in 1891 and since then has been a
strong contender for honors.
A complete list of the club games,
with the exception of a few games
played during one or two of the first
five years, is:

INTRICACIES OF FOOTBALL CAUSE
GRIEF FOR UNSCHOOLED OFFICIALS
Rules Require Close Study, but at Any Time Play May Come Up Which Will Make Ablest Referee or Umpire Think
Quickly to Avert Error Interpretation Often Left by Committee to Officials.
BY ROSCOE PAWCBTT.
(Referee of 100 Football Games in Past
FOOTBALL is as full of intricacies
as a pumlcestone is full of holes,
and many amusing and some few
serious experiences have fallen to the
lot of the gridiron officials.
Very few changes have been made
in thb texture Vif the xules in the past
year or two, but it used to be back in,
1910, 1911 and 1912, wholesale read
justments of the game were made ev
ery Winter. And invariably, the so
lons in the East prescribed the changes
and then left it to the officials on the
field to work out their practicability.
As a result, conflicts in the rules
were numerous, and only those offi
cials keen enough to discover these
flaws in time to write East to the rules
committee really knew what they were
Best Officials Are Masters.
Even now it is nec?ssary to hold fre
quent "interpretation" meetings, but
in the main, the first-class officials
are. masters of every conceivable tech
nicality. During our careeV on the lime-ribbed
gridiron in an official capacity we
have bumped into our share of the
knocks and idiosyncracies of the game.
Of the many unusual and weird ex
periences, one at Wenatchee, Wash'., in
the Fall of 1910, stands out boldly.
Wenatchee and Spokane were play
ing for the Washington state cham
pionship, and, in those days Wenatchee
took an especial pride in Its football
team. The game was played on a field
in Wenatchee that was one-half quag
mire and one-half snowbank. The lines
Ira the mud were marked in white
chalk and in the snow with red chalk.
Owing to the almost impassable foot,
ing. neither team expected to score.
Spokane relied upon its place and drop
kicking artists -we believe Durham,
of Washington, State, was with the
Spokanes that Fall and Wenatchee,
it later developed, placed sublime faith
on a special trick play that was to be
worked after an out of bounds.
Play Framed Regardless of Kales.
At a given signal, one of their half
backs was to be forced out of bounds,
and immediately his team was to rush
out on the field about 15 yards, the
center was to snap the ball back, and
it was to be passed to a waiting end
far over on the other side of the field.
Everything worked out according to
Hoyle. Foster, who later played full
back for Washington State, made a
beautiful heave to one of bis half
backs, who raced almost to the goal
line before being thrown. Unfortu
nately the Wenatchee coach had over
looked a rule in the book. This rule
provided, first, that time shall be taken
out for all. out of bounds, and. second,
that after time the referee shall first
ascertain from each captain if he is
ready before blowing his whistle for
a resumption of play.
Wenatchee's trick play was, plainly
illegal and the ball was called back
despite loud lamentations and protes

again the brilliant performer for the
cadets. He was removed during the
third quarter to make room for a sub
stitute, but at the time of his retire

This rule requiring the official to

Johnny Bender, former coach at
Washington State College, used to be
quite a stickler for rules.

State College versus Multnomah Club
in the Fall of 1913. that nearly ended
in an argument over a technicality in

We refer to the fumbling of the
ball either before or after the whistle
has been blown.

solely as a result of one of these hy
brids. The Winged M had worked the
ball- to the five-yard line and on the
second down had the goal to make.
Pete Rodes. former Annapolis captain,
called for a straight tackle buck. Pull
man held like a stone wall, and, when
further progress stopped, the writer,
who was refereeing, blew his whistle.
Simultaneously, the ball. shot out of
the heap of humanity across the goal
line, where it was recovered by Grover
Francis. Multnomah halfback, who is
now doing valiant service as referee.
Bender Protests Vigorously.
As the ball was .in nobody's posses
sion and was fumbled before the whis
tle sounded, it was given to Multnomah
as a touchdown amidst a terrible uproar-
on behalf of Coach Bender. Ben
der's argument, in brief, was that
when the referee's whistle was blown
the ball became dead, and he insisted
that it be given to Multnomah on the
one or two-yard line.
Bender later admitted his error.
Sometimes the play works "out the
other way. In the Fall of 1912 In a

Aggies and Whitman College, one of

being downed. Whitman complained

string of subterfuges and inventions
w ur: l tne rule.
Safeties and touchbacks are oft
times confusing uoth to the spectators
and to the officials and players. We
note that even a wise bird like Grover
Francis and the coaches and players
in a recent' interscholastlc game be
tween Lincoln and Jefferson Highs
were fooled on an alleged safety.
In this instance Lincoln High punted
from behind its own goal line and the
ball caromed off the back of one of
its players, oat on the field of plav.
It was recovered by Jefferson on "the
17-yard line. Referee Francis- called
it a safety under rule 16. section B,
which says that a safety is made "from
a kick which bounds back from an
opponent or one of the kicker's own
side, who. when struck, is behind his
Safety Rule Bothersome.
As a matter of fact to have this safe
ty rule apply tne ball must be downed
behind the goal line. In this case it
bounded out into the field and play
should have continued just as though
it had not hit a Lincoln player. Out on
the field of play if a kicked ball hits
a player of the kicker's side who U
in front 'of him the ball goes to the
opponents on the spot. But it must
be kept in mind that no player can be
offside behind his own goal line.
Coach Borleske.' of Whitman Col
lege, placed an unusual interpretation
on this offside immunity rule in the
recent game between Multnomah Club
and Whitman College, which was won
by the club, 6-0.
Whitman punted from behind its own
goal line and McDonald ran out onu
the field, recovered the ball and ra
for a touchdown. Referee VarnelU
who is one of th-s few officials In th
Northwest really a student of grid
iron technique, overruled the touch
down and gave Multnomah the ball at
the spot of recovery under the "off
side player touching ball" rule.
Borleake'a Contention Wrong.
Coach Borleske ;ontende'd that" Mc
Donald was behind his goal line when
the ball was kicked and as "no player
can be offside while behind his own
goal line," he could not be penalized
as "offside" when he recovered the
ball. The joker lies in the wording
of the phrase "while behind the-goa:
line." McDonald was not offside while
behind tho goal line, but he was offside
the moment he stepped on the field of
Later, when Whitman met the Ore
gon Aggies at Corvallls, Borleske
forced Dr. E.. J. Stewart, of the Aggies
and the officials to. accept his inter'
pretation before he would put his men
on the leld. Subsequent letters to the
writer from Walter Camp and Parke

the college eleven to consider a contest
with the club this Winter, but he sug

the best players of the present Wash

that his team is going to make a tour
of the West if arrangements can be
made to play the prominent clubs and
colleges ofuhis territory. Several all

various Northwest colleges of the Pa
cific Northwest are listed as possibili
ties for the Butte Miners. Nothing but
the "Lonestar" game will be consid

may be made whereby an Eastern or
Middle Western aggregation will be on
hand here either Christmas day or New
Year's day to form opposition to the
Multnomah Amateur Athletic Union.

lege team defeated the Albany College

ment being perfect. Fullback Gldor

BY EARL. R. GOODWIN.
The finale of the 1915 football sea
son of the Portland Interscholastio
League is fast approaching.
Columbia University meets Franklin
High next Tuesday afternon on Mult
nomah Field, and when the Washing
ton High and Jefferson High battle on
the same field the following day the
present season will pass into history
as one of the greatest In Portland.
Few people realize that the Lincoln
High School has one chance in 20 of
winning the title of the league, but
such is the case. The Jefferson-Washington
game is a championship affair,
but should it result in a tie score tho
Railsplltters would be declared cham
pions according to the standings of the
teams at present.
Columbia University shouldn't have
much difficulty in scoring a victory over
the Franklin High aggregation Tues
day afternoon, but a good game can
be expected, for Coach "Admiral'' Dewey
has imbued his little proteges with a
great amount of grit and pep. and as
a team of tacklers none of the other
aggregations has anything on tha
Jeff Lineup Is Little Changed.
Jefferson High will enter the big
battle against Washington High with,
practically the same lineup that won
from Lincoln and then lost to Colum
bia last week. ' From all accounts there
will be no material changes in the
lineup that Coach Virgil Karl sends
out to represent the Washingtonlans.
Interest in the Wednesday imbroglio
is at the highest order, for the result
of the fray will affect three institu
tions Lincoln, Jefferson and Washing
ton High Schools. Manager Archie
Roth, of Washington, and Manager
Milton Hermann, of Jefferson, have or
dered more than 2000 tickets to start
out with tomorrow morning, and by
the time Assistant Superintendent W.
R. Davis, of the Multnomah Amateur
Athletic Club, sends his men out to
open the doors to the grandstand each
manager expects to have disposed ot
every cardboard on hand and maybe
The game will have to be started
promptly at 3 o'clock in order to be
completed before dark. The last four
games have had to be completed in
such darkness that It was impossible
to see the ball from tho grandstand:
in fact, ail during the last quarter of
the Lincoln-Portland Academy match
last Friday none of the spectators
could tell one player from the other.
The electric lights in the grandstand
had to be turned on at the beginning
of the second half.
Season Brings Surprise. .
The result of the present season has
been somewhat of a surprise. Early
in the year the Washington High was
figured on as having a cinch to cop
the pennant, but right In the middle
of the season the Lincoln High repre
sentatives downed the East Siders 6 to
3 in the annual game. The largest
crowd in the history of interscholastio
football in Portland on Multnomah
Field was, present, a total of 3265 wit
nessing the match.
Lincoln High met its Waterloo In the
person of the Jefferson High, and the
score was 3 to 0. The North Bast
8idera went along all right without
being scarred up until last Tuesday,
when Columbia University came to life
and administered a 14-to-6 defeat to
the Jeffersonians. This victory put
three high schools in a tie for first
place in the league.
One of the features of the coming
Jefferson-Washington game will be the
final appearance of one of the great
est linemen that this league has ever
had. He is Ozbun Walker, of tho
Washington High, and this is his third
year with the team, but next year ho
will be attending one of the Oregon
colleges, according to his present plans.
He is the only member of the Wash
ington High eleven who is not eligible
for another season, but reports have it
that the Bast Siders will have to miss
nine of the present squad through
Ozbun plays tackle for Coach Earl,
and, although he tips the beam at close
to 200 pounds, he is fast for his size
and is willing to learn. He is a brother
of Dow V. Walker, superintendent of
the Multnomah Amateur Athletic Club,
who made such a name for himself
while with the Oregon Agricultural Col
lege in 1903-04-05-06.
Dow weighed better than 212 in his
prime, and he is credited with running
105 yards for a touchdown after a fum
ble against his old rival the Univer
sity of Oregon. Some of the fastest
sprinters in the Northwest were on the
State University team at that time, but
none of them had a look-in when Dow
grabbed the ball and started on his fa
mous run. In speaking of that long
run. recently, Dow dropped the re
mark that the last 15 yards seemed like
a mile to him.
The officials for the coming games
have not been selected as yet.
