During the year 1915 the Brooks Gi
ants had one of the most .successful
seasons ever known, and a great deal
of credit is due Manager F. E. Moisan,
(commonly and lovingly known to the
boys far and wide as "Cyrus Noble")
who was able by some mysterious pow
ers of persuasion, to secure the services
of that young phonom, "Keene," also
known as "Speck," of Salem high
school fame. Of course, it goes without
saying that Keno is almost a whole
team in himself, but our local farmer
boys certainly played somo ball, and

During a short season of about four
months, the Brooks team played eight
een games and winning all but two of
them; one of which went to the strong
Harrinian club team of Portland, with
a one to nothing score, and the other,
(the second game of the season) went
to the Gervais team oa a scorekeeperB
error, as our boys made the most runs,
and it waB a good game at that, going
12 innings with a 5 to 6 score.
During the season, we played the
crack Mt. Angol college team beating
them with a 1 to 0 score.
Our young local pitchor, F. Moisan,
started the season for us with a snap,

ing the fourth game. He dislocated one
of the bones of his pitching arm at the
elbow, which put him out of commission

concerned, however it is hoped by the
local fans that he will be able to come

On their , toes to trim Washington
high the Salem football team left this
city this morning at 9:45 for Portland
where they metft the Portland league
leaders on Multnomah field this after
noon at 2:30. Coach Clancy's cohorts
are pronounced in good condition for
the atiray with tiie exception of a
few sprains- and Charley horses which
will doubtless be torKotten in the heat
of the battle. Salem will present its
strongest lineup against the Portand
champions and it U hoped that a dry
field will not cause a repetition of the
submarine battle staged by Sftlem and
Columbia on Willamette fied.
The Salem backfield will be a much
more formidable aggregation with
Grovesnor back in the harness and it is
likely that the star quarter will be in
the game. Grovesnor fractured a bone
in his arm in the game against Albany
but that was only the beginning of his
troubles as ho was anchored by the
faculty in some of his Btudies and this
necessitated a conference and several
anxious hours to make up the deficien
cy in credits. Unless Grovesnor's sore
arm prevented him from answering
several questions correctly ne will be
in .ho lineup this afternoon.
The balem lineup this afternoon was
as follows: Hnrtf, center; Boatriirht,
left guard; White, right guard; Taylor,
right tackle; Williams, left' tackle;
Radclirte, ritrht end; Gill, left end;
Grovesnor, quarter; Haggedorn, right
half; C. Eadcliffe, left jalf; Proctor,
captain and fullback.
The Washington team outweigned
the locals about six pounds to the man
with a heavy line and a fast backfield.
In the Washington backfield is Par

who bids fair to rival his big brother
as a fridiron star. Parsons takes care
of the punting for the Wnshingtonians
and is one of tho best in the league as
In all eighteen men went on the trip
this morning and in addition to the

(R. A. Cronin, In Portland Journal.)
There will be no quibbling over the
respective merits of the Syracuse uni
versity and the Oregon Agricultural
football teams, but there will be many
arguments over the superiority of far
eastern or far-western football.
Syracuse beat the Aggies on Mult
nomah field yesterday by a score of 28
to 9 before some 6,000 football fans
from all parts. of the state.
If Syracuse is of the, -best sample of
eastern football, the brand they play
back there must not be much. Thore.
will be little doubt iii the minds of
those who have seen ..nshington State
and University of Washington play
that either could have) beaten Coach
"Buck" O'iiell's eleven with its
beefy line. The University of Oregon
team in the form it showed in the
last weeks of the season could doubt
less have beaten the easterners. There
are those who would b4 willing to bet
heavily on it. I
Fake Punt on Fourth Down.
Any football team-tlat will play a
fake punt on the fourth down, within
the shadow of its own j goal posts and
with 35 yards to go,t must have a
monkey wrench in its tjiink tank. And
to cap the climax,' the. castoriiei'8 got
away with it!
And, too, if Babo WHito, with all of
his 273 pounds and his six feet and a
half of weight, is an All-American
guard, what is the blonde German who
played opposite him and who opened
enough holes for the kaiser's army.
And, goine still further, what would
Johnny Beckett of Oregon do against a
line like Syracuse! If White is an
All-American guard, Beckett is the
greatest tackle that ever played the
Syracuse in the best "basketball"
team that has ever played out this
way. The O'Neill team showed the
northwestern coaches some of the most
puzzling and best concealed forward
passes that have been witnessed in this
section. They were almost unsolvable,
and it was not until late in the game
that the Aggies began to wake up to
ueicnse tor tnem. When they did,
Abraham and Allen smeared a whole
peck of them.
Kaiter star around a.iiner.
Little Bafter, the squirmiest young
ster as well as the fustcst that has
crunched the sawdust under his foot
this season, was the star ground gainer
of the day. Whenevcrjie wnsn't good
for from a, to 25 yards it was time for
the Syracuse to punt. But there is a
grave question whether the Syracuse
backtield could have withstood the de
fensive play of a pair of tackles like
Heckett of Oregon and Applequist or
When Earter took the ball, it was
mostly from a perpendicular backfield
alignment to the Syracuse forwards.
One or the halfbacks turned cut the
opposing end, tho other two ran to
gether like a team with Bafter hiding
behind them, until they were abreast of
the line, when both took caro of tho
Aggies' secondary defense,' opening
wide to let the little, sprinter through.
It strikes one that a charging forward
lino, sny like the University of Ore
gon, would have tripped this play up
anu mane it. almost nil.
0. A. 0. Forward Held WeU.
The 0. A. C. forwards hold well
enough against their heavier Syracuse
opponents and a great amount of yard
ago was not made by the visitors on
straight plunges. Halfback Wilkinson
did not make any gains to speak of
off Laythe's tacklo, but bohind
Schlatchter he certainly tore through
the other side or the Aggies' line.
The prettiest fight the Aggies put
up was on the third touchdown. Tho
visitors put the ball on the O. A. 0.
one-yard line and the Stewart clan
gathered all of its strength for a final
defense. It was the greatest display
of fight the Aggies showed during tho
tho game. It took the heavy Syracuse
team four solhl plungoB, and then they
got the ball over by ouly inches.

W. 0. W.s and Lojus Tied For
First Place In City League
The Eugene All-Stars will arrive in
Salem tomorrow morning to complete
the bowling series which was started in
Eugene two weeks ago. In the initial
series Eugene pulled out ahead 32 pins
on their total Bcore though Salem won
two out of the three games. Since to
tal pins will decide the contest, how
ever, Eugene is still leading at present
but the Salem team intends to reduce
this lead to a bnlunce on the other
side of the score board when they meet
The final contest will be rolled on
the Club alleys and in view of the fact
that Salem has but a 32 pin lead to
pick up on their own alleys and the
calculate that they will just about
take Eugene to a drubbing. The Salem
team will consist of Noud, Kress, Day,
Laflar and Wilson unless some change
is made before the game.
The W. 0. W. team and the Loju
team are both tied for the leadership
