Willamette valley that their brand
of hall and ooaahlug system so far
outclass this section of the state that
the games will be uninteresting and
theiofore, would be financial fail
ures. Salem this year and Hosvburg have
whipped everything In the north,
soundly trouncing the Portland
teams. Salem so far Is champion of
Oregon aud Itoseburg Is a close run

a second game played on a neutral
floor Roseburg would win.
