A. Royal Welcome Home,
The OAC boys were extreme
ly jjurbilant over the news which
reached them from time to time
from Seattle where their chosen
eleven, led by Bert Pilkington
were trying conclusions with the
University of Washington. When
the news of the splendid victory
' won by the OAC's came the air
was made vibrant with the col
lege yell, and "Oid . Glory' ' was
iflung to the breeze from the col

a bt.-vt.TC auJ decisive defeat to the
TJnivtrjity of Washington team
this afternoon, winning a scare
of 26 to 5. The Wcbfooters "put
up one of the fastest and best
games oi loot ball ever seen in
Seattle. Their victory was due,
however, in no small part to the
Washington eleven failing to play
., any kiud of championship ball.
r In less thau 25 minutes the
visitors rolled up a scoie of 21,
and during that time had tle local
boys completely at their mercy.

Shaw, one of Washington's new
halfbacks, carried the ball behind
the Oregon goal line for the only
time during the game by .a brilli-

The Oregon Agricultn-ral Col

heavier than Washington and
very nearly as last. The inter

splendid for so early in the sea
son, and although their defensive
work was not up to the offensive,
still it was very good. It was
the opinion of many of the critics
who attended the game that the
visiting college could have --stood
up well against any aggregation
on the Coast today.
While the weather was rainy,
the giidiron was iu excellent
shape and gave each team an op
portunity to play its best football.
Coach Steckle and Captain Pilk
ington are more than pleased
with the showing made and are
Confident that they have a loag
list of victories ahead of them.
The classes at the college were
dismissed ten minutes earlier than
usual, yesterday morning, to en-;
able the whole body of students!
to meet their returning victorious
team at the railroad station.

The despised little college at
Corvsllis does much more than
play honest and winning games
of football. Each student just
as earnestly and enthusiastically
engages iu his studies. The suc

bears witness to the truth of this.

About Sijo Friday evening .an
altercation occurred between Geo.
Avery and a .young man named
Lytle, whose home is near Philo

sort of difference arose between
the two. They shortly left the
house passing out by the way of

knife and struck Jiiin in the right
