As an example of unselfish devotion
and Interest In their club, the recent
action of certain members of the Port

in the case ofall youthful -and ambit
ious athletic organizations, the Port
land Golf club finds itself In need of
nianv improvements. The purchase
of certain needed equipment has been
delayed as the directors have made
good use of the money J already received
from entrance ffces and dues.
On the way. to the links last Sunday
morning. In the early car carrying 40

and a, novel campaign started
A list was circulated and 30 signa

double jointed back acting scheme for
the raising of money arid 'the putting

''VVr the undersigned, member.! -if

and agree- to get a new member or
allow the 10 to remain in the treas
ury of the club until we secure euch
new member. The $1 Is to b re
funded to the undersigned from the
entrance fee of the member secured."
Without, a doubt 75 names can be
lecured. which will give the directors
1760 to be used In further improvement
of the grounds and the purchase of - a
water pumping plant, which has been
needed during the past summer. Th
beauty of the scheme 1 the fact that

MORE ABOUT U. S. SMITH.
Sir: Why do you refer to the pitch
er McCredie traded for Catcher Yantz
as "United States" Smith? FAN.
Smith was picked up at Birming
ham, Ala., where lie had been selling
peanuts in the grandstand, by the Chi
cago White Sox. He was not ready for
the majors, and, by showing promise,
was sent to- Birmingham by the Sox.
He helped Birmingham win a pennant,
and got another trial with the Sox on
the Coast last spring. He did not like
our ways, and when h'e left with .the
Sox declared to the scribes: "Thank
God. I'm going back to the United
States," meaning, you know, the east
He wan turned back to ."Venice, and
since has been known as "United
States" 'Smith. Sometimes he is known
as "Kid" Smith, and sometimes as
"The Sword Swallower," owing to abil
ity to balance peas on a knife.
University of Washington, Oct. 29.
After taking Jt easy for one day the
team has put on the finishing touches
for the game with JO. A. C. at Albany
next Saturday. Dbbie will drill his
team in old style football for this
game, as he considers that is the only
way that Washington will have a
The game with Whitman left a few
more cripples on Dobie's hands. Mil
ler hurt his shoulder and arm and is
still on the hospital list. Smith had
his foot liadly injured but Is getting
back into the game. The other invalids
are coming' along in fine style and
should be in pretty good shape by the
time of the O. A. C. game, with the ex
ception of Ed Leader who will be out
Dobie thinks this will be the hard
est game he will have this year and
is very gloomy as to the outcome of
it. However, he said: "O. A. C. will
have to play better ball than they did
last year if they want to win." The
general opinion of the students is the
same as Dobie's and the rooters that
are going down with the team expect
to see Washington win.
The team is not nearly as good this
year as it was last. The players don't
seem to get together in the pinches in
the same way that they have in pre
vious years. There Is also a slump
in the spirit of the students. This is
shown by the fact that a smaller
number is going to Albany this year
than went to Portland in the two pe
It is generally understood that Doc.
Stewart has a faster and heavier team
than he had last year, also that har
mony Is prevailing. If this is true
they should give Dobie a harder game
than they ever have before.
Washington is still weak In the de
partment of panting and if Miller does
not get into the game it will be weaker
than ever, as he has been doing all the
kicking so far this year. Smith did
fine goal kicking in the Whitman game
last Saturday and Dohie expects to see
Smith break into the scoring column
on this feat alone.
The team leaves Seattle this after
noon and will spend the night in Port
land. They will leave for Albany
early Friday morning in order to get
used to the field before Saturday. The
rooting squad, which will be about
150 strong, will leave here early Sat
urday morning so as to arrive in Al
bany in time for the game, and they
will return to Portland as soon as the
game is over.

yaras ana it was recovered by v rigni
of the same team. Then without call
ing signals the ball was passed across
the field to Leonard, who had stayed
out of the lineup, nd who ran 40
yards, being downed on the seven yard
line. There the upper classmen held

lower classmen regained the ball on

anxious to prove that he's the best of

took it over with a quarterback dash !

goal, giving his team seven points.
Though the upper classmen worked
hard they could never quite get to tha
