failure of the eastern railroad to

Berlin, Oct. :t0. Arriving in Berlin
for his first visit of the war, Field
Marshal Von Hindenburg became the
object of demonstrations throughout the
It was several hours after he had
reached Berlin before the news spread.,
bhop keepers quickly hung out flags and
crowds pathered, anxious for a glimpse
of Germany 'a war hero.
Hindenburg was first received by the
kaiser at Bellevue palace and later with
his wife and daughter dined with the
kaiser at Bellevue palace and later with
he met some of the government heads
after his conference with the emperor.
The kaiser himself spent several hours
in Berlin Saturday. After visiting city
soup kitchens and eating some of the
cabbage and meat stew, his majesty re
ceived n lengthy report from Chancel
lor Von Bethmnnn-Hollweg.
"Good morning, Nora," said Mrs.
lingers. "Was the grocer's boy .impu
dent to you again this morning when
you 'phoned the order in!"
"He was that," complained Nora,
"but I fixed him this time. I sez:

An article from the linilway Age Ga
zette appearing in the Railway Kquip
meut. Register, which was received by
the public service commission yester
day, savs that eastern railroads have
in their possession 100.000 cars more
than they own. This is believed to be
one of the principal causes of the short
age in the west. The article goes on to
say that the car situation is more en
couraging than it was last spring, and
now carriers in all parts of the country
are having difficulty in handling the
unprecedented business. It is not
known just how serious the shortage
will become. However, mild weather
during the coming winter would affect
tho situation as it would allow cars to
be distributed more readily.
The trend of tho traffic is still to
ward the east and the number of west
ern cars piling up in the east is increas
ing with consequent embarrassment of
western crfrriers. One reason assigned
for the congestion is the tremendous
increase in business activity rather
than a lack in Slipping facilities.

to Columbia's 30 yard line where in the
extreme corner of the field a pretty
pass of 22 yards from Urosveuor to
Kexford gave Willamette a end a
chance to score first blood. Booth kick
ed goal, thereby making the score 7-0
within less than two minutes or play.
On a 'varsity fumble Columbia's
chance to retaliate canre when a pass
netted them some 14 yards. A quick
double exchange of fumbles, however,

The miracle of the second touchdown

From then on until the opening or
