SEATTLE LOOKS FOR
VICTORY OVER CLUB
Puget Sounder Feel that Their
Eleven Can Easily Out
ASTORIA MEN SAID
S. A. C. WAS STRONGER
Sigrlst, Wells, Lewis and Turner
Will Shine for the
The SeatU. AthUUo club h a
splendid rhunc. to defeat Multnomah
axt Saturday afternoon at Recreation
Park," says the Seattle Tlmaa, "and now
that the club member realise that a
team has been whipped Into shape that
will give wood account of lteell. they
are rallying U He support, and there
will be a big crowd out to see the came.
"Multnomah had an awful bard time
defeating the Willamette university
team of Salem last Saturday to 0 The
members of the Multnomah team have
been pounded on (be back for the poor
showing they made, and bare been told
that they will have to brace up thla
week or Seattle will down them.
"The opinion of the Astoria men Is
valuable in getting; a line on the game of
next Saturday, for they have played
against both the Multnomah and Seattle
club men. The Astoria players said
last Saturday that Seattle had a much
stronger line than Multnomah, and tbat
the backs of the local team were much
harder plungers than the Portland men.
Abercromble said that Multnomah made
all Its scores against them by end runs,
fake plays on tackle and delayed passes.
Astoria had In a couple of green ends
that day, so that end runs were possi
ble. "Astoria players spoke highly of the
work of Bracken, Turner and Wells,
and they said Wells was undoubtedly
the strongest and cleverest line man
playing on the coast today, while Tur
ner Is a hard man to handle and Is Just
a liable as not to break through and
taokl. . th -runner behind the Una Just
aa he did on three occasions last Satur
day. "Charley Slgrift wilt play tackle next
Saturday. He did not gat Into the gam
until near the close last Saturday, tak
ing Turner's place when the letter's bad
leg went back on him. Slgrtst would
rather play football than cat, and when
ha Is in shape for a hard game he can
outplay any man In his position on the
coast. He has the knack of following
the ball, which la Invaluable to a foot
ball player, and he can inject a lot of
fighting spirit Into the team both by
his actions and his. coaching.
"Those who watched Lewis run with
ths ball last Saturday were convinced
that the high school boy ' should be
played at halfback Coach Shorts said
that Lewis has the Ideal build for a half
back for he Is stocky and hard to bowl
over. He is built along much the same
lines as Huston, the greatest halfback
la the country. Lewis has played be
hind the line soma on the high school
team, and la slated for one of the half
back positions next year.
"With Bracken at center. Wells and
Turner at guards, SlgrlSt and Mont
gomery at tackles; Van Hovenberg and
Dowd at ends; Christy and Cole for
quarter; Huntoon and Lewis as half
backs and Newmyer at full, the club
will have a lineup that will make Mult
nomah go soma to defeat.
"The attendance at previous games
has been dlaappointlng. Club spirit Is
now being stirred up, and a creditable
showing will be made Saturday. Many
of the old-time members rather shied st
ths proposition of putting a , football
team in the Seld thla year, but now that
the team has demonstrated that It has
class and la showing marked Improve
ment every day, the old-timers are
warming up and will be out to yeU for
the club Saturday like they did in the
days of long ago. The game Saturday
Is the big thing tor the club, and the
team will be right on edge. A acare
was thrown into' Multnomah last Satur
day, and the men are working hard this
week to make a good showing in Se
As the Columbia Juniors have not yet
received a challenge from the Chemawa
management, the reported game for next
Saturday has not yet been arranged.
I'nleaa Columbia receives a challenge
before Friday no game will be played
witn ue Indians.
The Columbia Juniors have an offer
of a game with the Barclay high school
of Oregon City. South Portland also
wants a game with the Columbia Juniors
on the Multnomah field Saturday after
noon. Manager Watklns haa found It a diffi
cult matter to get a complete team for
the Seattle trip on Saturday. Loner
Kan. Corbett and Delph find It Impossi
ble to go. Lonergan has classes to In
struct at Columbia university Saturday
morning, and Corbett Is hsld by busi
ness affairs. Dolph is suffering from
a very sore toe and upon the advice of
his physician he must remain out of
the game for 10 days at least.
The absence of this backfleld trio
will necessitate the playing of substi
tutes and second team players.
Multnomah's regular lino with the
exception of Klraiey will be In the play
at Seattle, and If the Puget sounders
can find any holee from Jordan to
Dowling they will be entlUed to them
