fighting football team its first vic

chance for a three-way champion
ship tie. Pacific won the annual
encounter 7 to 8, each team scor
ing a touchdown.
Strictly according to tradition,
the game was a grimly fought bat
tle, with. two well coached for
ward walls smashing each other
fiercely on every play. Because of
a steady drizzle of rain which at
times became really a downpour,
the contest was fought out on the
ground and not In the air as it
might have been otherwise. But
It -was not lacking In thrills.
The teams were as evenly
matched as the score indicates.
Each offense "clicked" but once
and throughout the remainder of
the game isolated long gains were
made occasionally but always
went for naught, frequently be
cause of fumbles.

Taking the klckoff at the open

pressive naarches ever witnessed
in a game as closely contested as
this one. The Bearcats carried the

with his parents in 1841, locat

home until his marriage and
about 1874, he and his family
came to Oregon, where they lived
in Portland for one year, and
then came to Lfarion county.
Here he purchased the old Da
vid Peebler donation claim, and
here he has since resided. This
claim had been filed on about
1852 and a log building stood on
the place. There were 320 acres
in this claim, which for the most
part was covered with brush and
timber. Clearing this meant many
years of hard labor, but he per
sisted until two-thirds of the land
was cleared. Meantime he had
added an adjoining tract of S3 8
acres, making a total of 858. For
many years more than 500 acres
has been under cultivation, for
the most part in wheat. For many
