Foundation Boys Ready and
Willing to Meet Soldier
P1oIeskin Stars Today. '
Far-Famed Vancouver Barracks
Music Makers Will Contest Really
, With Eugene Cloffi's Aggrega
- tion Which Has Reputation.
Everything is in readiness for today's
big- football clash at Vaughn-street
park between the Foundation shipyard
eleven and the soldier-moleskin artists
from Vancouver Barracks. The game
starts promptly at S o'clock and the
proceeds of the oattle -will go to Uncle
Sam's Kanning Kitchen.
The National Woman's League for
Service, which is assisting in making
arrangements for the big game today,
has fixed an automobile parade through
the downtown streets, starting at 1:30
o'clock. The crack Foundation band,
under the leadership of Eugene Cioffi,
will lead the vanguard of shipbuilders,
but the soldiers have promised to go
one better by bringing along the far
lamed Vancouver . Barracks band and
Also the Second Provisional Regiment
hand, which is garded as one of the
best in the Northwest. There will be
no lack of patriotic and jazz music
when these three bands and their root
ers go into action this afternoon at
Vaughn-street park and every minute
promises to be oozing over with good
natured excitement.
While both, gridiron aggregations
claim a sprinkling of all-war timber,
neither- of the teams have been under
fire and today is-their first real con
test of the season. Last Sunday morn
ing on Multnomah field the soldiers
scrimmaged with the Winged-M eleven,
nut Coach Malarkey claimed some of
Jiis regulars were not on the Job but
xpects a formidable aggregation to
line up against the shipbuilders today.
If Malarkey could coax some of the
stars in the .Yeon building into turning
out for practice with the Barracks
eleven he would have an eleven rank
ing with any on the coast service or
otherwise but the chief trouble lies in
the fact that when the soldiers working
in the Spruce Division" Headquarters
finish their daily jtoil they are loath to
travel across the Columbia River just
to scrimmage. However, Malarkey is
still hopeful.
George Dewey, coach at Foundation,
Is preparing a sweet little surprise
package for the soldiers this afternoon.
At least, that is the way the former
Oregon Aggie star puts it. "Every one
is a fighter. Some of them are well
versed in the pigskin game, others are
just learning the rudiments, but
everyone is a fighter."
The officials for today's contest will
probably be as follows: Referee, Reh
bein; umpire, Wittmer; head linesman,

Players Affected by Federal Order

CHICAGO. Oct. 5. A sweeping ruling
against attempts of major league base
ball players to collect salaries on con
tracts extending beyond September 1,
the date fixed by the Government for
the suspension of professional baseball,
was handed down tonight by the Na
tional Baseball Commission, which held
such claims to be unjustified and
The decision was announced by
President Johnson of the American
League, a member of the commission.
The commission's decision was based
on the case of "Jake" Daubert. of the
Brooklyn Nationals, who sought to col
lect $2150 from the Brooklyn Club be
cause his contract, calling for $9(ft0 a
aeason, was terminated on September 2:
The commission's ruling, which-prob-ably
will apply to ail similar cases,
held that the club could not be com
pelled to pay Daubert the full amount
agreed upon because under the "work
or fight" order, his contract was vir
tually rendered Illegal and impossible.

While there Is a considerable varia

as the most accurate approximation of
the comparative speed at which the
better-known wild birds fly.
The crow may be taken as an ex
ample of the elower-flylng bird, with a
rate of 35 to 55 feet a second, and with
an average epeed of 45 miles an hour,
while jnany species of hawks attain
the remarkably fast speed of 200 feet a

Would Seek Freak Laurels.
SAN FRANCISCO, Cat., Oct. 5. An
inter-series and, at the same time, an
intersectional football championship is
the aim of Captain Lynn B. Coovert, of
the United States Marine Corps. Cap
tain Coovert is in charge of the Ma
rines football team stationed at the
Mare Island Navy-yard., and is so cer
tain his aggregation will beat every
thing on the Pacific coast that he is
anxious to take the eleven as far East
as is feasible In order to meet the
best service team of that section of
the country. ,
"It is too early. In the season as yet
to determine which of the Eastern Army
or Navy service teams will prove to
be the best of the lot, but as soon as
there can be no question as to a team's
superiority, we are anxious to arrange
a game to play .for the Army and Navy
championship of the United States."
It is understood here that Camp
Grant. Camp Sheridan and the Great
Lakes training station all expect to
have good teams in the field. The Mare
Islanders want to play whichever one
of these elevens, or any other for that
matter, which clearly stands out as
the best of Eastern teams at the end of
the season.
"The Mare Island team, which last
year won the championship of the Pa
cific Coast, again is 'made up entirely
of college and university players. Every
man is an experienced player so that
no time has been lost in learning the
rudiments of the game. The men
started right in at perfecting their
team play and their trick play. The
backs average approximately ISO
pounds, which, admittedly is 'an im
pressive figure, especially .when com
bined with speed", with which Captain
Coovert says his men are liberally pro
vided. "Such a game," said Captain Coovert,
"would arouse a great amount of in
terest and the big gate receipts which
would result add a substantial sum to
any war fund which it might be. de
termined to help. Wherever it was
played, there would be tens of thou
sands of men in training and the at
tendance would probably be quite up to
the numerical standard of a Yale
Princeton or Tale-Harvard gams."
Football Is Leading Sport in

ties from the athletic directors are any
criterion. Many colleges and prepara
tory schools have announced that foot
ball will be taboo so far as academic
and collegiate mafches are concerned.
Most of the college football stars of
previous years have entered the servioe
and as a result the Training Camp Com
mission athletic directors are making
extensive plans to utilise these men In
the formation of championship divis
ional, regimental and company elevens.
Although the galaxy of former col
lege football stars that twinkled last
season in the uniforms of the various
naval -station elevens has ceased to
shine, manv players being transferred
to active- ee'a service, athletic directors
are confident that the teams will be

WASHINGTON. Oct. 5. With in
creasing Interest being manifested in
cage ball, one of the latest additions
to the long list of sports played In the
training camps, athletic directors of
the War Department Commission on
Training Camp Activities have devised
a number of new games in which the
regulation cage ball Is used.
Water cage ball is one of the most
popular of these games. As played In
the swimming pools in the various
training camps, a score or more men
can participate. There Is really, no

Diving Team, Thelma Payne

Plans are already being made for a
tour of the country by the Multnomah
Amateur Athletio Club swimming and
diving team next Spring. A trip of
this kind should be self supporting and
would be a great boost for swimming
In the Northwest. The team would be
composed of Thelma Tayne, women's
National Indoor diving champion, and
one or two of her teammates; Happy
Keuhn, Northwest champion diver, and
other swimmers who show up best in
the sprint and middle distances.
The team would be large enough to
put on exhibitions without outside tal
ent, if necessary, in some of the cities
at which they could give exhibitions.
It may be possible that the tour will
be made as a benefit for the Red Crow,
and a straight tour of this kind should
realise a neat sum. as the only outlay
of the trip would be traveling expenses.
There sre quite a few boys at Mult
nomah Club who can make good if they
will get in and work. Myron Wils y
Is pretty sure to be one of those picked,
as is Brownie Webster, now at Berke
ley. Albert Engrene. O. J. Hosford.
Liddell and Frank Lindstrum are likely
mermen, but they need a lot of hard
work to get in shape to compete
against the class of the country. W. H.

Northwest backstroke championships,
would probably be able to get a fur

would be a wonderful card. There are

plenty of talent to pick from as far as
the girls are concerned. The Pembroke
