Portland May Have
War With the Movies
Portland, Ore., Sept. 30. Smouldering
embers of open warfare between the
Portland board of motion picture cens
ors and the theatre managers were fan
ned into brisk flames today when new
prohibitions were imposed upon the
under the Infest rules, news, views
vhowing the removal of dead from
wreckage, and war pictures of horses
being forced to jump walls and scram
ble down steep hills are under the
Photoplay managers asserted that the
censors had forced several nothwestern
film exchanges to leave town because
of strict regulations regarding storage
of celluloid films and some storage
that plans for a 25u,(IOO tneatre here
had been abandoned of the restrictions.
Defeated in their first attempt to pass
a municipal law giving them a right to
appeal to the courts from the censors
mandates, the exhibitors are now- plan
ling to present their proposition to ne
people through the initirT' .
Theatre managers declared that the
national board of review passed on all
films before they: were released and
that scenes ordered condemned by local
viewers had to be restored before the
films could be exhibited elsewhere.
Today Score 27 to 0
Despite the crippling of Gucrin, the
big "00 pound husky at the start of
the game, Coach Matthews' cohort re
peated the 27, to 0 whitewash of last
year against the 'varsity alumni team
on Willamette Field this morning.
The game as a wholo was marked by
an epidemic of forward passes and runs
through a ragged field. In this capaci
ty Diniick and Groscnor of the
'varsity and Donne and Shisler of tho
alumni veterans, were outstanding
stars. Archibald also put up a great
fight at center.
First blood in the scoring column
came within the first five minutos'
when Rexford recovered a bounding;
kick from tlrosveuor's foot and on a
fumble Flegel fell on tho ball behind j
the goal line, the alumni previously;
having failed in an attempt to place
kiick from the 23-yard line. Line'
plunges and end runs was the princi-1
pal menu of the remainder of tho half.
Ruder, the big fighting moose of the i
alumni, tried to drop kick on one of I
the seesaw plays "but the ball hit the I
goal standard. The half closed with
no further scoring just as Dimick
caught a forward pass near tho center
of the field. Score fl-0.
After a few preliminary salutes in
the second half the 'varsity registered
a second touchdown when Grosvenor
returned Doanc's punt and Rexford
caught a beautiful diagonal pass of
over 30 yards. Flegel followed with
a pass to Grosvenor who dodged the
remaining 35 yards through a broken
field to the line. Flegel kickod goal.
Score 13 0. Tho diminutive 'varsity
quarter soon repeated the score after
a series of lino plunges by the 'varsity
backfield, by running around right end
for 40 yards. Flegol kicked goal.
Score 20 0.
In the fourth quarter the 'varsity
opened up a landslide of open field
plays whioh kept the ball in the alumni
territory the remainder of the gnme.
A series of passes landed tho bnll about
20 yards from the line and Dimick,
getting away on a forward pass, ran
through the shattered veterans for tho
fourth touchdown. Flegel again reg
istered the kick. Score 27 to 0. The
alumni took a brace but the chance to
tally woe gone and .the game closed
with the ball in tho center of the
Although tho affair was supposed
to be a broterly love game, it was
characterized by voluminous protests
and ragged playing. Flegel, Tobie and
Booth were all ready tor the hospital
long before the fray was ovfpr. The
loss of Guerin was a blow which the
'varsity could hardly recover from.
Taylor and Tenll were out of the game
