HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL

Grant County Teams Victors

Tho football squad travelled Into
(Irani County IuhI week nnd engaged
Prairie (My High nnd Canyon HIkI.
Tho'fcauio at I'rnlrlo was tho first
ono thai tiny of our boya hud ovor
played nnd their Inexperience told
heavily against them. Tho faHt
heavy back field of tho P. II. S. cir
cled our onda repeatedly for Ionic
gains but lino plunges nnd forward
passes woro not no successful. Tho
boy from Harney woro In auporlor
condition to their opponents and
were playing a hard game when tho
whistle sounded for tho end of tho
last quarter. Tho final score was
48-0. I'rnlrlo outweighed tho H. C.
II. 9. ovor 15 pounda on tho average.
Monday at John Day, Canyon City
wan encountered nnd a spirited con
teat developed. Tho final acoro of
127 doca not toll tho truo talo for,
tho losing, our boya showed auporlor
to their opponents.
Canyon scored In tho first and
fourth quarters on long paasua, but
was saved twlco by tho whlstlo whon
tho I'urplo and Gold olovon waH
headed for tho goal lino. Rolnoman,
Cowan, nnd Thornburg pounded tho
lino for ynrdngo with Voogtly toar
Ing on long runs. Only a disastrous
slip prevented tho latter from scor
ing when ho was only flfteou ynrda
Olt tncklo plays, a pretty pass to
Clark, nnd n flvo ynrd plungo by
Thornburg netted our only touch
down. It. Gowan kicked tho goal.
In this gnmo tho tackling wna hard
and clean and tho gonornl offonslvo
nnd dofenslvo play of tho II. C. II. S.
players opened tho oyoa of many who
hod scon Saturday's game.
All In nil, for n groon oloven, tho

they show on the local gridiron.

FOR HOSPITAL BENEEIT
Plays Role of Unselfish Hero
In "The Knickerbocker
Douglas Fairbanks makes hl re
appearance nn "Old Hoc Chcorrul,"
in "Tho Knlclterbrocker Ducltaroo"
which will ho shown at tho Liberty
Theatre tho last week In Oclobor,
Tho moral or thin story in that do
ing something ror somobody i a
worthy and laudable ambition, but
that unselfishness enn uomotlmes bu
curried too far, and unless guided by
culm judgement, may bring tho un
selfish ono results bu doosn't ux
poct, and, Bocondly, that tho proper
placo to start any reconstruction In
character Is at home.
Douglnn plays tho part of Teddy
Drako, wealthy Now Yorker, who
decides that hla Ufa In all wrong be
cause of hla soirish qualities, and
starts out to do unselfish things la
tho world, which gets him Into &
series of amusingly complicated sit
uations laid in tho west.
Fairbanks was; tho .'Irst to in
troduce constructive philosophy via
thu screen route. Ho baa taught
millions tho way to laugh, tccauso
of nu Intelligent understanding of
certnln conditions lire. Ills Intent
pictures dcaln with ono or life's big
gest evils, that of solflshnofin. Wo
nro selfish because wo don't reallzo
that happiness only comes from do
ing things for others. With thin
thought an a basic reason for "Tho
Knickerbocker Ilucknroo," a dis
tinctive story was developed by tho
bury, Frank Condon, Tod Heed and
director Albert Parker.
Tho play opens Iu a fanhlonahlo
New York Club, where u statuto
of Darwin, tho philosopher, co-star
with tho screen lioro, making poss
ible soma Interesting athletic uctlon,
when Doug iu his conversation con
cludes, "Perhaps Darwin was right."
It is said that the now Fairbanks'
story, because of Its slmplo treat
ment, Is his most brilliant film.
