,. , . Two Ways to Uy Oame.
. "There, are two ways, of playing; the
same," he aald.' "that of tne eportaman
and that of the aaort. It Is easy to teil
which Is which. Before tha game the
eportaman never boasts. He says that
he will do- his best, but tnat is an. in
sport makes- the heavens reeound with
hla talk:, (After the game the eporta
man is glad he won,, but he la always
he gentleman, restrained and modest.
But the sport, If he win, lets everyone
know that h did it. He gloats over the
defeat of his rival and takes a negative
)leasur in victory. When he la d
teated he .whines and says ha wasn't n

. -Durinar the game, the sportsman
play hard and always within: the spirit j
or cue ruiea. ne win not uu univr
advantage of bla opponents or abide by
a technical decision. The sport plays to
win at all haiarda. In fact he seems
to uke especial delight in doing, things
unfairly. And on the field he allows
tne yellow streak and does the; baby act.
In fine, the sportsman plays; for his
team. He has tile enthusiasm of a com
mon cause. . He shares : a common joy.
'ine sport playa for himself. . ; - .
' Big-. ICea forget Thsmsalvss. ;
'" VWe 'may translate this philosophy
of i activity.-.. fo'every walk of iif e. The
people who do biff things are the ones
ivito forget themselves in their enthusi
asm for an action; the ones whe have
the times of their lives in' doing their
work, sn4 In doing- It without thought
-of - aelf.sacrlficervK;' A'- ?7 v .
, -"The game of business la a magnlfl-
cent game when played on the basis of
good sportsmanship with an eye to. the
common weal and a thought for the
common v interest ; The lawyer who
takes advantage of a technicality is not
playing the game. " The doctor, who Is
entirely trusted, is most despicable U

,. "And above all we roust do our work
with enthusiasm. It Is nice to do a
r thing from a sense of duty, but it gets
tiresome. - The business man: who gets
p in the morning and says, 'Now, I
must conduct my business today for the
aake of the community and myself and
family,' -. does , a splendid thing, but it
gets old. , We must;, have enthusiasm.

- ' Speaker Is Humorous. '
. Vr: Vincent ' humorously ; but effec
tively 'Illustrated the transition from in
dividualism to collectivism by the use
of stilted and . hackneyed ;v figures of
speech, - The road on which -we used to
plod past milestones naa oecome a nigh
way; along; which we ride in automo-
- biles. , "J. ' -.'
The little canoe in which' we used to
row against the stream is now a mighty
liner whose fate depends on the cooper
ation and loyalty of many, - The battle
" of life is no longer a hand to hand con
flict but an affair . of regiments and
Krmies., The stage of' life is. not a vau
deville stage, where one person does a
turn, but the stage of the drama where
the many contributes to. the success of
the whole. '
In an , Intimate introduction to his
talk, i, Dr. ? Vincent epoke highly of the
work being done at Reed college, term
ing it hand: work in contrast with the
machine work of (he great universities,
lie also congratulated Reed, on her ath
letic policy which purposes - to . develop
a genuine love of fair sport and a whole
some . participation , in. athletics on -the
part of all the students, not the spe
cial development of a few highly trained
atars.' It is a ' noteworthy-- coincidence
that the athletic policy of Reed college
exemplifies exactly Dr. Vincent's doc
trine the elevation f the many over
..the ttw')f:.::ii:''r:,-': ; ;.,'".:
Humor and a thorough understanding
of men marked Dr. Vincent's talk
throughout. He spoke with natural flu-
ncy and , In a congenial -manner that
wholly won his shearers. , , ,
President Vincent ' left Portland last
night for Billings, Mont., where he will
make an address. He will then proceed
to -Washington, D. C, stopping en route
at Minneapolis, and speaking at various
ltles during his transcontinental Journey.:!';;-

Forifrer Portland 1Vlan Explains
Reason . Why Appeal Was
Made After Disaster,
"People outside of Nome do not seem
to understand why an appeal was made
for money, after ihe big storm that dc j
stroyed much., of the business district
there," aaid C, H. Bmitn, a mining man
of Nome, who arrived In Portland .yea
terday, and is the 'guest of his brother-in-law.
F. W. Swanton, .
- "A donation of $1 in.cash would have
done the' work of $2, for the money
could have been used id employ the
miners who lost everything they had In
the storm, and with that money, he could
buy his aupplles .from the grocers and
supply -men, from whom their debtors
are demanding payment In thia way,
both would be helped. The supplies
wer all rlaht. for thev helped the des-j
titute miner, but they didn't help the j
merchant, i !. i
"Nearly all the merchandise that hadj
been stored for the winter was saved
from the storm, for when the wind De
gas to come In from the sea, it was
storea along the waterfront that suf
fered. The stock from these was
moved across the streets. It is esti
mated that )0 homes wera destroyed
by tha storm. .
"The water rose 40 feet nigner tnam
at the hirhrnt tides. It washed over
the graveyard and washed out several'
bodies, which were afterwards round
some distance up the river. One of the
remarkable features was that only, three
persons were killed at Nome.
"One of the greatest needs today ts
for baby clothes. There are none to be
had there and every time there is need 1
for some they have to be made.
"The revenue cutter Bear-win leave 1
Nome next Monday with about 76 refu- j
gees who want to get back to the states.
There may be other government boats
to take, out additional persons, .but if
there are they will have to leave very
soon, for . Nome will soon be in cold
storage for the winter.
"The Cripple River, Penney River,
Safety and Cape Nome road houses were
totally destroyed, and there was but one
telegraph pole left standing where the
town of Solomon, 82 miles -west of
Nome, stood. ,
"The report that the storm uncovered
much fold on the beaches wajs a mis
take, and has been proven so since by
hundreds of men who attempted to find
the precious, metal In the places most

truth about the situation," , .
He then defined as one of the curses
of Mexico, - ownership' of great tracts '
of lands some of them 1 as large as
