COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIP
UNDECIDED
Estacada And Oregon City Battle
At Football To A Tie Score
In all probabilities, the hijrh
school football championship of
Clackamas County will have to
remain undecided this year, as
last Wednesday afternoons game
at Oregon City, resulted in a
no sco! e on both sides.
This contest was one of the
gamest struggles ever staged in
the county interscholastic his­
tory, with neither team able to
advance the ball nearer the goal
than the twenty yard line.
Canemah Field, on which Ore­
gon City has to stage its games,
while ordinarily a rough, rock
strewn spot, was in poor condi­
tion that day, from continued
rains, with a drizzle going on
during the game.
Neither team was able to play
to the best of its ability, with
forward passes being all uncom­
pleted, owing to slowness of the
Held and the wetness of the ball.
During the first half Estacada
had a shade the best of the fight,
being able repeatedly to make its
ten yards during the four downs,
with Oregon City unable to make
a first down, w’ith or** txcep ion
during the contest But in the
exchange of punts, the county-
seaters had a slight advantage,
which substantially offset the
gains made by Estacada.
At no time during the game
did Oregon City have a chance to
score, although Estacada threat­
ened to for a time, following a
long end run with the ball for a
first down on the 20 yard line.
But then occured a fumole, with
the opponents punting out to
safety.
The refereeing and umpiring,
as handled by Jake Kisley of Or­
egon City and Burgess F. Ford,
of Stayton, formerly principal of
the Estacada Schools, was fair in
every way, with few if any pro­
tests registered.
Both the Estacada and Oregon
City teams were handicapped by
the loss of some of their best
men, with the county-seaters
claiming four men. out of the
game.
For clean play, this game was
above par and good spoi isman-
ship was especially evident on
the part, of Estacada and Capt.
Jannsen, who, rather than take
advantage o f a technicality,
which might have resulted in
winning the game, refused the
reward. This incident was the
result of an Oregon City-man,
who in attempting to block a
punt, received Capt. Jannsen’s
foot in the pit of the stomach,
knocking him out completely.
According to the rules. Oregon
City’s player in colliding with
Jannsen’s ' boot, technically

F. 6 M. CLUB
Bis* Delegation To Attend County
Budget Meeting Dec. 22nd
The fine chicken dinner, served
by the ladies of the Christian
Church, which was an impor-
tant feature of the Farmers'
Merchants’ Cluh meeting Mon­
day night, at the Hotel Estacada.
was enjoyed by sixty-six repre­
sentative citizens of this com­
munity, with about a «core more
of taxpayers from outlying dis
tricts arriving in time to take
part In the meeting which fol­
lowed.
The annual election of officers
was quickly disposed of, with
the meeting unanimous in its
choice of A. VV. Botkin of Car-
field as president; Frank Ewing
of Viola, vice-president ami A.
L. Lass well of Estacada. secre­
tary-treasurer.
The principal part of the meet­
ing was given over to a detailed
discussion of the various appro­
priations shown in the Clacka­
mas County Budget, as prepared
by the county court and which
appropriations are to lie accepted
or rejected by the taxpayers at
the annual meeting to be held in
Oregon City on December 22ml
As to the attitude of the meet­
ing on the different appropria­
tions, no menti ri will l>e made
herewith, but the taxpayers were
substantially unanimous in their
stand for and against certain
items and appointed a committee,
comprising H. C. Stephens, A.
* W. Botkin, Walter Givens, E.
-W. Bartlett and It. M. Standish
to act as spokesmen at the Ore­
gon City meeting.
It was also the sense of the
gathering that the effectiveness
of Eastern Clackamas’ protest
or endorsement of the county
budget, as presented by the com­
mittee, would be entirely depen­
dent on the strength of the back­
ing of taxpayers, who also were
in attendance. In order to get
together a big delegation for this
purpose, the following committee
was appointed: John Ely, chair­
man, John Page and Theo. Ahl-
berg of Estacada; K H Currin
of Currinsville; Fred Anderson
of Eagle Creek; Ernest Hoffmeis-
ter of Upper Eagle Creek; Har­
vey Gibson of Barton; N. M.
Tracy and Elmer Davis of Gar­
field; Robert Miller of George;
Sherman Kilgore of Springwater
and Frank Ewing of Viola.
It is the duty of every loyal
taxpayer to get in touch with
some member of this committee
ami advise them if he or she will
attend the annual meeting on
Decern l»er 22ml and if so, wheth­
er by auto or by joining with
others in chartering a special
train. A round trip rate of 97c
each can la* made oy train, if a
two car excursion can be gotten
up, wi h the motor car costing
