Portland, Nov. 24. Although the
University of Oregon was outweighed
heavily today In the annual Thanks
giving game with the Multnomah Ama
teur Athletic Club, the local team was
given the hardest fight which ever oc
curred between the two teams before it
won by a score of 7 to 0.
During the first half of the game
there waa no score. Although most
of the half was played in Oregon's ter
ritory, Eugene's goal waa never in danger.-
On the kick-off in the second halt
Murphy, Multnomah's quarterback, .
caught the ball and by a sensational
run, carried It to yards to Oregon's 26
yard line before he was downed. Mult
nomah followed this , advantage by a
fake play and made a touchdown. Later
in the game, with the ball In Oregon's
hands, the varsity center passed the
ball too high to Templeton, the back,
and the ball went over his head. Tem
pleton was forced to drop on the ball
behind his own goat The play consti
tuted a safety, carrying two points for
the club team.
(There was no further score.
Oregon's Good 8howing.
Multnomah had almost aa much
trouble defeating Oregon as was ex
perienced in defeating Commercial,
the difference being a safety, which
was the result of a bad paas to Temple-,

would pile up a score of 12 or more
against the Eugene team and the re
