urday in one of tho most important
football games of tho western season, A
crowd of 10,000 ia expected.
The corn buskers nre looming up big
for tho .Missouri Valley conference

sas Aggies 11 to 0 Inst week, while the
Oregon inns nre fresh ironi a 13 to 10
yictory over Washington State.
Under Conch Joo l'ipnl's guidance,
the Oregon Ajfgios hnvo improved vast
ly aince playing the Mulfiiomah Athletic
club. Nebraska, however, ia said by
critics to be somewhat weaker than last
season. Pi pa I will be sure to use Tuffy
Conn of Pnsndeun, and Anderson of
l.oug 11 each, Cab, in the big game. Their
quick footwork in following punts and
recovering fumbles waa largely respons
ible for Washington State's downfall.

Washington state college in one of the
most terrific gridiron struggles ever
seen on Hogers field.

squarely between tho uprights twice,
and Oill raced 20 yards for a touchdown
after picking up' lloone's fumble five
minutes after tho beginning of play.
Conn kicked goal.
Tho defeat was the first Conch Diet)!
has received since he has been in
charge here. Although tho crimson and
gray fought to a finish, costly fumbles,
made early in tho game, made all hope
of overcoming the lead smaller as the

team, of Portland, could not withstand
the varsity Saturday afternoon and
were beaten 2S to 0.'
i Fumbling on the part of the varsity
proved costly time after time. Hut the
club men played too much of an indi
vidual game and the varsity's great line
was never in danger. Bettc team work
and better physical, condition spelled
the victory for the varsity. Had the
forward passing been a little more ac

he said, "I addressed a respectful tele
gram to Presideut Wilson asking him,
upon behalf of the Portland citizens,
to make public statement of the reasons
that moved him to sign the Hay-Chamberlain
army reorganization bill, which
contains n draft clause. I have not yet
observed that the president has made
such a statement. I do not expect Mr.
Wilson, however, to discuss the draft
law. If he were to do so that law would
