NOT FOR IT.
Speaker Cannon is said to be
strongly opposed to any revision
of the tariff or any tinkering
whatever. He declares that 're
vision" would "hang the country
up by the tail" a thing none of
us care to do. Continuing along
this line it may be well to quote
the gentleman as follows:
, "Importations would drop off,
stocks would become low on the
shelves of jobbers, the revenues
of the Government would fall
off and the first thing we knew
the country would be in a condi
tion of depression similar to that
we knew about nine or ten years
"That is what I mean when I
speak of 'hanging the country up
by the tail.' We used to swing
dogs by the tail when we were
boys. It must have been a very
uncomfortable sensatiou for the
dog- It would be 'just as un-
comfortable a sensation for this
great country, and by Jove I am
not one to sit quietly y and see
. t attempted."
The gfime next Saturday between OAC
and M. A. A. C will without quenion be
a grand exhibition of football. The ter-
riffic . line plunging that netted OAC
such decisive victories over Willamette
and -Washington 'varsities has aioused
the interest of the followers of the game.
Some papers have even gone io far
as to ftate that the Farmers have the
ptrongest team west of the Rocky
Mountains. Whether this be true or not,
it is obvious that she has tie strongest
team in the Northwest this season
' They defeated Washington by 15 points
'when that team was at its best, while
Idaho only won over her by 8 points
when ehe was much weaker. Now that
OAC has proved herself the best college
team in these parts, the question is
"What can she do with the clubmen?'
Can "Fuzzy" Dolan and'Faf Walker,
the invincible tackles, go through Mult
nomah's lines in the same easy manner?
Probably no one, can exactly predict the
outcome of the contest, but that a hard
tmnch will face the club is quite evident
1 hey wilf-play against the strongest
collt-'e tfaui that lias appeared on the
field this year.
This game will be all the more inter
esting, owing to the 10 to 11 score be
tween the two teams last Christmas,

APPEALS TO SENIORS.
A few days ago there came to
our desk a communication from
a former student of the Agr
cultural college in which an ap
peal is made to the seniors of this
institution of learning. Whether
or not the appeal is well ground
ed we cannot sav, but for th
benefit of those who may be in
terested in philanthropic wor
we yive space to the communi
cation, as follows:
Ed. Gazette: Will you kind

umns to put before the senior
students and the public a plan

our fd'o ji-students at Corvallis?
An appeal tw ' the senior
Dear Brothers You, as well
as I. know full well th fact that
manv of our students, freshmen,
aud ut'-iers also, have to break up
their studies in the middle of the
year, sometimes in the middle of
a term. The cause for this is
mainly due to lack of funds suf
ficient to carry them to a com
pletion of their studies.
As Corvallis is a small town
and hardly enables ,the -increasing
number of needy boys to get
sufficient employment for self
suppoit, is it not absolutely neces
sary to have a kind of "Provis
ional Fund," 'so-ri -inore un.
fortunate boys mt , nave a
, chance to complete the career
they have commenced? When
they go to work during vacation
they can pay back the sum bor
rowed from the fund, thu en-

with les-s 1imcultv and anxieiy.

enough work for all the self-sup-

Caption Tom McDonald, one
of the cleanest athletes ever turn
ed out of Seattle, rounded out
his football career by "playing a
very indifferent game. Tom
was not right yesterday. - Any
one on the side lines who knows
the big fellow knew it after see

Tom of being lacking in courage.
He h?.s demonstrated his fighting1
acuity ou moie man oue ve
casion, and never to better ad
vantase than a year ago vester
day when he stopptd the heavy
plunges of the California backs.
But he was not there with the
goods yesterday and he was out-
played bu defense by bdh Palmer
and Btgshaw, both smaller and
lightermen, ihere is only one
explanation of it. The big cap-
tain has eone stale, tie was not
fighting edge, and he could
not eet into the thick of it with
his old time dash and swing.
He offered no excuse, but it was
learned after the game that he
had had trouble with his stomach
for several days before the game
and was not assimilating his food
properly. Tom is not a man
who ever makes excuses for him-

fact that he is not satisfied with
the game he put up yesterday.
