High Quality,
In the "interests of oloun and honor-
i able athletics" the Salem high school
' football team makes no claims to the
j championship of the Oregon High
I School Athletic association and goes on
I record with this statement. A resolution
'disclaiming all title to the champion
j ship was passed by the high school re
cently at a mass meeting of the stu
! dents and signed by nil of the members
of the football team and, Conch H. O.
j Clancy, and a number of the most prom
j i no ii t students.
Salem relinquishes all claim to the
championship because of the fact that
Cecil M. Sarff was n member of the
team when he was ineligible though the
fact was unknown to the Btudeuts or
faculty until tho Benson was nearly
over. fSalem won all of her games and
lost the game to Washington high by a
single point and tho boys may fool
proud of thoir records not only us foot
ball players but us real sportsmen.
The resolution follows:
To the Board of Control of the Orcgen
High .School Athletic Association:
Whereas, It has como to light thut
during the present football Beuson tho
Salem high school hus been playing a
man who is ineligible according to arti-
cle six, section one, of the constitution
of tho Oregon High School Athletic as-1
sociution, although the fact of his in
eligibility was wholly unknown to the
authorities of the school until after the
game with Albany;
Be it Kesolved, By the members of
the Salem high school in a mass meet
ing assembled, that the students of Sa
lem high school have no claim and do
not claim any Tight to championship in
the Oregon High School Athletic asso
ciation, all reports to the contrary not
withstanding. Bo it Further Resolved, That we do
hereby assume tho responsibility for the
error committed, and do . express our
most sincero regret for the action as
hereintoforo stated.
Bo it Further Kesolved, That we do
hereby agree to abide by the decision
of the board of control, because we be
lieve it will be in the interests of clean
and honorable athletics.
