ple tried to -t?t the coin; court lo
promise to construct the bridg-; re
gardless of the fact that '.he Lane
county court would not assist, but
the local court would not give any
This coupled with the fact that
Lane county has refused flatly to go
half in the construction of the bridge,
leads to the belief that the bridge will
not be constructed for some lime at
Feasible reasons have been assign
ed by the Linn county court, mainly
on points nf taxation, (o suhst intiate
the contention that the bridge cannot
be built at the present time.

left off after the second meeting. The

Ability to run back punts and work
t'oi ward passes, is t lie reason a des
perately contested football game was
won here yesterday afternoon by the
.'il.i.iuy high school team over the Al
i.any College team by a score of 12 to
The college boys could not get down
the field under their punts or could
solve the combination of forward pars
es worked on them by their oppon
ents. A (brilliant pass from Mouteith
to liriggs scored lo touchdown in the
third quarter and another followed by
a line plunge by Mouteith netted an
other touchdown in the second quar
ter. The high school lads failed to
kick the goal on either.
As far as holding the line on both
the defensive and offensive the college
lads played good. The high school
team's line was weak. Mouteith and
liriggs starred for the high school
and Mrince. Gilbert and Hodge played
a good game for the collegians.
