Keeping the body warm is
one of the first essentials to good

keeping warm is the wearing of
warm underwear. This store
boasts unusually large stocks of
knit underwear for women, chil

in sizes for everyone, at pricings
based upon earlier market quota
tions and not on present worth.
FOR WOMEN, MISSES
The Nation and the community demand that
shopping now take its place as an exact sci
ence with the woman skilled in the way of
To such women, the Nation's and the community's slogan, "Careful antici
pation" should mean intelligent management of time and energy as well as
of finance. With such women going from store to store is no longer the
necessary preliminary to purchasing. No matter, now, that such was their
former habit, they have accepted this store's guidance and have become
expert judges of values.
. We point with pride to the increasing number of women in
this community who we hear saying " always begin and
end by buying at Lipman, Wolfe & Co." instead of those
who used to go half way and say " always end by buying
at Lipman, Wolfe rjr Co."
This store appreciates this confidence.
It is striving as it has been for more than
sixty years to merit it. It therefore feels

CAMP LEWIS, AMERICAN LAKE,
Wash., Oct 26. (Special.) Camp Lew
is put one over the Multnomah Ama
tur Athletic Club football team here
this afternoon in one of the most thrill
ing games yet played on the division
athletic field. The final score was
7 to 0 and the lone touchdown came in
the last 10 seconds of the second
It was a beautiful contest from a
spectator's standpoint, with both ag
gregations evenly matched. The score
was made from a 41-yard forward pass.
Lyle Bigbee to Schultze, and'Ira Black
well converted the goal, running up the
seventh and last marker. That was
the last time the soldier boys threat
ened the Winged "M" goal.
Visitors Lack Punch.
The visitors several times got down
within the 20-yard line, but the neces
sary punch to put across anything was
lacking. In the last quarter with all
hands fighting desperately amid a
steady downpour, the Oregonians went
to the Camp Lewis four-yard line. On
the fourth down Hughie McKenna sent
a forward pass over the goal line, but
it was incompleted. It bounced out of
the arms of the waiting athlete and
Multnomah's hopes went glimmering.
The bright light on either side was
Hughie McKenna, the sterling little
120-pound cardinal and white quarter
back. Time and again he bucked the
heavy olive drab line for good sub
stantial gains and especially when the
necessary yardage was needed. It took
from two to three of the opponents to
put him off his feet, while he was
carrying the ball. At running back
punts he especially.. was effective for
he fumbled the slippery oval only once
and then recovered that after a punt.
Teams to Meet Again.
Huyck and Bryant, the Camp Lewis
quarters, were the bright and shining
stars for the cantonment. There was
but one substitution on the Portland
side, while five were made by Coach
Lieutenant Eddie Kienholz and Cap
tain T. G. Cook. Tom Loutitt, the husky
Multnomah center, as well as Mike
Bloch, played a bang-up game and
busted through the opposition with

Pnnt Got, Sixty Yards.
The longest punt of the afternoon
was for 60 yards, made by Hughie Mc
Kenna. In the last period Major-Gen-eral
Leith ordered the game stopped be
cause of the heavy downpour, but when
it was learned that but a little more
than six minutes of play remained he
allowed the contest to proceed.

Athletes 'Who Have Turned Military
Coaches Should Xot Be Penalized
for Their Patriotism.
Whether amateur athletes who have
accepted commissions in the Army as
directors of camp athletics or have en
gaged in the war work of the Y. M. C.
A. as physical instructors should be
permitted to regain their amateur
status after the war is a subject which
is exciting more and more discussion
in athletic circles. Although the list
of 'amateurs who have gone into such
work is not large, there is, neverthe
less, a feeling that they should not be
considered without the pale of ama
teurism when peace comes.
One of the most Important amateurs
who has gone into Y. M. C. A. instrua
tion work is E. H: Goulding, the cham
pion Canadian walker, who held sev
eral American walking titles, Gould
ing was unable to' enter the army in
Canada, but he did the next best thing
when he became a physical instructor
for the Y. M. C. A.
Jack Eller, the former Irish-American
A. C. hurdles, champion, went to
France early In the present year as
Y. M. C. A. worker with the American
Expeditionary Forces. He has since
returned home and has resumed his po
sition with the New York police de
Under the rules of the Amateur Ath
letic Union, as they are at present,
however, neither Goudling nor Eller
may compete again as amateurs, for
the reason that they received compen
sation for teaching athletics. The ap
plication of the rules to such cases as
these seems to defeat its own purpose,
because neither they nor any amateur
athletes who have gone into the serv
ice of the Y. M. C. A. or the War or
Navy Department Commissions on
Training Camp Activities have done so
with the purpose of making it their
life work. For the most part they have
been actuated by motives quite as pa
triotic as if they had gone into the
ranks and carried on in the front-line

UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, Eugene,
Oct. 26. (Special.) Oregon will meet
the University of California in San
Francisco on November 23, according
to arrangements completed this after
noon- by Charles Huntington, graduate
manager of the university. - The game
will be played for the benefit of the
allied war work council, and all re
ceipts, over and above expenses, will be
turned over to the cause.
The playing of this game so far from
the campus is made possible by the
ruling of the War Department, which
has set aside its previous ruling that
no team could play any contest that
could not be reached by leaving the
campus Friday night. This change is
made only for games that will benefit
the allied war work, and a series of
such games is being arranged through
out the United States.
This acceptance of the game ' with
California for the 23d makes it neces
sary to cancel the game scheduled for
Portland with the Mare Island marines.
It is possible that some other date may
be secured for the marine game, but as
yet Huntington has not made the
change. If a change is not made the
marine game will be dropped.
The Oregon team will be in tip-top
condition by this time, and will go
south with the determination to "skin
the- Golden Bear."

Friends of Battling Xclson Say
Scrapper Contributed More Con
versation Than Real Money.
BY JAMES J. RICHARDSON.
When' the Portland boxing commis
sion voted to conduct boxing smokers
for the duration of the war they cooked
up a rare dish for themselves. The com
mission appointed Tommy Tracey offi
cial matchmaker and gave the former
middleweight champion instructions to
go out and sign up a card that would
meet with the approval of local fistic
fans and help enrich the coffers of the
Oregon Boys' Emergency B'und.
The men who handle the reins of the
boxing game in this city and who
helped elevate it to a high plane among
the commercial sports failed to look
into all the angles that now threaten
to keep the commissioners and espe
cially Tommy Tracey in a fit of frenzy.
The scarcity of talent and the lofty
financial ideas of available mitt wield
ers is making life miserable for Tracey.
There are plenty of mediocre boxers to
be had but even the ordinary curtain
raiser demands a half interest in
Tracey's smoke shop and as a guar
antee of good faith wants a mortgage
on Walter Honeyman's duck lake. Out
side of that they are not asking much
to climb through the ropes and display,
their fistic talents.
Tommy Tracey always had a hanker
ing to become a promoter. It is doubt
ful now if Tracey would want to even
become a promoter even if the com
mission reconsidered their action and
voted to allow promoters to again run
shows and donate a percentage of the
net proceeds to the Oregon boys' emer
gency fund. The few fighters that
are in Portland have run Tracey ragged
with their demands. The- out-of-town
scrappers , take delight in writing
Tracey for a fight, and then incident
ally, by way of no harm, mention that
they would like about $450 and three
Tracey was confined to his bed yes
terday, having a slight cold in his head,
and information regarding the future
of boxing in Portland was not to be
had. But the exorbitant demands of .
the boxers is not feazing Tracey in the
least, and when Tommy gets on the
job again in a few days he will con
tinue to angle for a star attraction for
the first smoker to be staged under the
auspices of the boxing commission.
One of the Commissioners informed
us yesterday that he, too, was In com
munication with out-of-town scrappers
and was trying to land some of them
jobs In the local shipyards. Of course
that is great stuff if said Commis
sioner can pull tne strings, but the
boys want a guarantee that the Job
will be permanent, and nobody can give

Nelson made some unfortunate real
