The Salem high football team
ground Chemawa down to a 14 to
0 defeat on OUnger field in the
Thanksgiving day classic, thereby
winning the Willamette valley
championship and maintaining an
undefeated record for the season.
No post season games can be
played by high schools. The sea
son ended .yesterday so no state
cnampion can be named mis

Sogai Puts Ball
Over Both Times
Sugai had a great day scoring
all the points of the game. He
once smashed the line for a
touchdown and another time
made a long run to score. In
addition to escorting the pigskin
across the goal line twice, Sugai
sent it rocketing over the cross
bar two times to add the extra
points following the touchdowns.
Chemawa started the game by
kicking off and Salem at once be
gan a drive down the field that
ended In the land where pdlnts
are found. Sugai and Welser
paeked the ball most of the way,
with Foreman - and Kitchen re
lieving occasionally. As the red
and black neared the goal line,
the red jersey ed Indians put up a
defense that came within a few
inches of stopping the Salem on
slaught. With the ball on the
18-yard line, four plays were re
quired to place the ball on the
eight with only one inch to spare.
Indians Pot up
Four more plays put the ball
over with Sugai finding the large
opening rent in the Chemawa de
fense by the Salem forward wall.
The Salem team kept Coach
Downle's men boxed out while
Sugai calmly applied his educated
toe to the oval sending it over
the middle of the cross-bar.
Downle's men discredited the
idea that the Indians are easy
picking and give up if only the
opponents can score first. Fol
lowing the Salem score they came
back with a drive that carried the
ball to the five-yard line before

PARIS, Nov. 27 (AP) An
eloquent appeal for the United
States and France to take the
lead in saving the world econom

tonight by Premier Andre Tar
dieu at the Thanksgiving dinner
of the American club of Paris.
He frankly criticized the
American people for falling to
judge the people of France at
their true value.
"In our different moments,"
he said, "in our difficult periods
you have a tendency to call us
fantasists. When -we are at the
top you say we-are workers."
He rebelled at the Idea that
France should be judged highly
merely when she had plenty of
gold and good finance, saying
Frenchmen are entitled to be
weighed by other standards.
Remarking the United States Is
a young nation composed of sons
of proud emigrants who prefer
red'' to voyage to the American
continent rather than to stay In
Europe, he voiced the opinion
that it would be the middle west
anil great west which would de
termine the evolution of Amer
ica.. He lamented what he called
a lack of knowledge of France In
those parts of the United States.
He maintained the present -economic
crisis had come from the

conviction that the real hope ot
solution of the world situation is
for the United States and France
to- take the lead and help the
