Future Games Now Depend on
Removal of Ban.
SEVERAL CLASHES ARE DUE
Fans Look Ahead to Camp Lewis
Winged M Struggle Scheduled
Here tor Saturday.
BT JAMES J. RICHARDSON.
"If covers a multtdude of sins since
the Invasion of Spanish "flu" into our
midst and It is especially so in speaking
of football games scheduled for Port
land. "If" the present epidemic of sick
ness shows any signs of relinquishing
its hold on our fair city by the latter
part of this week and Mayor Baker and
the state health authorities raise the
lid on all forms of amusement, and if
the Camp Lewis quarantine is raised
their football team will be seen in
action on Multnomah Field against the
Winged-M aggregation next Saturday.
George Bertz. the diminutive man
ager of the Multnomah eleven, got in
touch with Captain Cook, athletic of
ficer at Camp Lewis, yesterday, and
closed for the appearance of the can
tonment team here next Saturday if
the quarantine placed on Camp Lewis
last Friday night will have been raised
in flme to allow the Camp Lewis grld
ders to get here in time for the game
"if" the Portland lid is raised in the
Definite Promise Remote.
So Manager Bertz is still aeroplanlng
as far as being able to make any def
inite promises regarding the game be
ing played. It has been many seasons
since the clubmen have boasted such a
gridiron outfit as dons the cardinal and
white colors this season and Bertz is
anxious to sport his gladiators off be
fore the home folks and with nothing
but the best elevens obtainable in this
neck of the woods.
The University of Oregon will be seen
in action on Multnomah Field against
Multnomah on Saturday, November 2,
"if the lid on amusements is tin
canned" by that time. This will be the
only game Oregon will play in Port
land this season unless the Mare Island
Marines come north and choose "Shy
Huntington's warriors for a game. The
Mariues are tentatively scheduled to
play almost every gridiron team in the
Northwest, but when Captain Coovert
gets down to brass tacks after the
quarantine is lifted at Mare Island the
Marines will play one and possibly two
games in Portland on their northern
Vancouver Barracks, Foundation, Uni
versity of Oregon, Oregon Aggies and
Multnomah all want to edge in on the
Marine eleven, but some of th teams
are doomed to disappointment.
Mur Teams Seek Games.
"If Camp Lewis is prevented from
playing on Multnomah Field next Sat
urday they-might be programmed for
Saturday, November 16. That is the
date of the Oregon-Aggie clash ft Cor
vallis and a large delegation will likely
Journey down the valley, but there will
be enough of the iome guard on hand
to help Manager Berti pay the ex
pense of bringing the soldiers to Port
land. The loss of Lieutenant Hugh Peter
son, Multnomah's star fullback, is a big
handicap to the clubmen. Peterson ran
headlong into the knees of the Jacob
berger family Francis and. Vincent at
Eugene one week ago yesterday when
Multnomah played Oregon and for
a while it was thought he sustained a
concussion of the brain, but the medi
cal authorities at Vancouver have been
giving him a world of attention and
Pe -rson is saldS to be convalescing as
raoidly as possible. It is unlikely that
he" will don the spangles again this
Hale, former University of Arkansas

Oregon Boys at Hill Military Acad
emy Defeat Washington Stu
dents by Score of 1 8 to 0.
S. F. Ball, principal of Franklin High
School and president of the Interscho
lastic Athletic Association, has tssued
a call for a meeting of the directors of .
the league, including principals of the
various high schools as soon as studies
are resumed. The object of the meet
ing is to outline plans for continuing
the iuterscholastic football league.
All of the high school students and.
players on the eight football teams,
have been asking themselves if thera
was going to be any more interscholas
tic football this year. President Ball's,
statement will set them at ease. Presi-.
dent Ball has talked the football ques
tion over with nearly all of the high
school principals and they are in favor
of playing out the schedule. The only
question is whether to commence play-'
ing where the schedule left off and
make arrangements to play the post
poned games or draw up an entirely
new schedule, starting where the pres
ent schedule was brought to a halt. .
New Schedule Proposed.
Mr. Ball has instructed the coachea
to draw up a new schedule, starting
where the present one left off, and it
will Le presented at the meeting of
the league directors. , If a new sched
ule is adopted it will mean the shift
ing of the dates ahead, while the di
rectors may decide to resume where the
present schedule left oft and play the
games postponed before the end of the
season. At any rate, the principals
would like to get all of the games
played by Thanksgiving.
Four games were scheduled to be
played last week, all of which had to
be postponed. Those four, together
with the one postponed week before
last, makes the league five games be
hind. As there are four games sched
uled for this week, which will also have
to be postponed, it will bring the total
number of games called ofC up to nine,
providing school starts on October 28.
The nine games would have to be
played on the dates left open in the
school, weeks or two games could be
played on the same day, using Multno
mah .field for the regular scheduled
game and one of the high school grid
irons for the postponed games. Frank
lin has a good field and Jefferson also
has an acceptable one, although the
spectators would have to stand up. The
Franklin bowl would be the logical
place to play off postponed games in
case it was necessary to play two con
tests on the same day.
Nearly all of the coaches had their
elevens out for practice last week, get
ting them in the pink of condition. The
several weeks of added time for prac
tice assures the fans of some high-class
interecholastic games this season. Co
lumbia and Hill are the only two
schools not making their appearance
on the gridiron this season, all of the
rest of the' teams having played one
Good Material la Sight.
Coach Luck has rounded up some
good material out at Columbia U and
will not be lagging in the race for the
title. The tentative lineup for the
start of their season will be something
Bill Collins or "Shrimp" Phillips,
quarterback; Bert Jacobberger, captain
and right half; Driscoll. left half;
George McNeil, fullback; Pete Sweeney
and Frank Glass or Collins, ends; Char
ley Lake and Mike Murnane, tackles;
Jim Flynn and Clark, guards, and
Terry Johnson, center. Others out who
look good are Nettleton, Schaefer, Mike
Dunnigan and Cecil Murdock.
The special game played between the
Hill students from Oregon and those
from Washington at Twenty-fifth and
Raleigh last week resulted in an
18-to-0 victory for the Oregon boys.
The game was full of action from start
to finish and Hill will be in good con
dition for the reopening of the season.
The longest runs of the game were
made by Bobby Robinson, for Oregon.
Al Day. a member of the Hill first
team, playing with the Oregon boys,
put up his usual star game. Churchill
and Pendleton played a stellar game
for the losers.
