What the Big Fellows In the
; East Ore Up Against -
On Gridirons
Bjr H. O. Hamilton.
(United Press staff correspondent.)
New York, Nov. 4. The spirit of ven
geance will hover over eastern football
gridironi tbis afternoon in the only two
big encounters scheduled. Yale, smart
ing under two defeats in four .years at
the hands of Colgate.' is in share to
Land out a beating to that eleven audi
probably will do it with an unniistak
able gusto. The Army, humbled in reg
ularity by Notre Dame, will ect an
other crack at the Indian eleven at
West point and with one of the greatest
back fields that ever .performed for thu
future generals, will try today to get a
' belated revenge.
Two of the games most consistent and
. brilliant performers, Coffnl and Oliph
ant,' will be pitted against eaeh'othet
in the battle at West Point. Both of
them westerners, they have proved their
class over opponents and ench of them
has by his own efforts kept his team out
in front.
In Oliphant, Gerhard, Vidal and Ford
the Army ban whipped together a most
wonderful offensive aud defensive com
bination.' If Notre Dame's massive
stars are able to tear their way through
and at the game time hold off assaults
by these men they will, indeed, have
reached a point from where they will
be hailed as favorites over their age-olK
ueiny, the Navy. And to keep pace with
the middies they will have to win
Last year the two elevens fought'
hard battle, the westerners finally win
ning by a score of 7 to 0.
Yale will be represented by a second
string eleven, the first string men hav
ing done enough to insure victory, pro
vided they can do it. Coach Tad Jones
is endeavoring to save his regulars as
much as possible. '
Both Yale and Colgate have gone
through their seasons to date without
defeat, but Colgate's schedule has had
only, one real hard contest, that with
Illinois, which it won. '
Yale's schedule, while it has been
with minor elevens, has been hard and
the Blue's record is good
Harvard will only have a practice I
game with Virginia. It probably will
develop into only a comparative affair,
in which Harvard's score can be placed
alongside that made by Yale against
the same eleven. Yale piled up a 01 to
3 score against Virginia,
Down at Princeton the snniee old bear
story is flying around. The Tigers, :hey
say, are not fit to play football much
less try to stop the heavy Bucknell
erowd. However, Speedy Rush has been
in the habit of wearing long faces, so
no one will be surprised if Princeton
piles up a huge score.
A Silk Petticoat
For Only Ten Cents
The silk petticoat endless chain
scheme is stated to have caught some
parties in Jamestown and Stutsman
counties. The Associated Press dispat
ches from Minneapolis stated that thous
ands of letters, each containing ten
cents, are pouring into the postoifice
daily from various parts of the country
who have joined in an "endlex chain"
scheme promoted by the soenlled Nat
ional Brokerage Exchange
Federal Agents Busy.
Federni agents are searching for offi
cers of the "Excjiange" who are want
ed for using the mails to defraud. A
room in a business block to which all
the letters are addressed, was suddenly
vacated three weeks ago, the authori-J
' ties say. '"
lo every woman who would send 10
cents in silver and write five friends
urging them to join in the chain, the
' "Exchange" promised a new 1917 mod-!

Yale and Princeton
Not the Whole Thing
By Hamilton
(United Press staff correspondent)
New York, Nov. 4. Yale, Harvard
and Princeton are not the only colleges
in the east which have football teams,
even if the majority of experts the
country over do apparently have that
opinion.. Cornell, Brown, C'olgato, and
several other colleges arc forever butt
ing into the triumvirate and messing
things up.
But Yale, Harvard and Princeton
consistently- have good, strong football
teams and they constitute the par ex
cellence of the sport around these
parts, The annual clashes of the teams
are red letter days on the sports cal
endar, and fom tho time, the final
games r'ng the curtain down football
fans are on the trail of these three
Harvard has held the upper hand for
several years,' largely, through the ex
pert advice of one Percy Haughton,
who has put more life and firo and pep
into the Crimson eleven than it ever
believed it could possess.
But this year seems to be the start
of an ascendant of the stars at Prince
ton and Yale. Yale is getting off-to a
mighty good start under the tutelage
of Tad Jones, and Princeton, iu spite
of Sneedy Rush's loud wails of an
guish, is giving a good account of it
self Yale has a fine backfield jn Legore,
Bin?ham and Jacques, and a fine fild
general to help this trio along in Trav
er Smith.
Princeton has a good backfield trio,
with a fair quarterback in Jack Kddy
to help them along. A remarknbly good
second string quarter is found in Ames.
Tibbott is as good a kicker as tho east
has turned up so far this year.
Harvard on the other hand, does not
seem so strong as in . recent previous
years when she was wont to walk rough
shod over Yule's cohorts. There are
no Mahans nor Brickleys. But Haugh
ton has a penchant for r'sing to emer
gencies aud by the timo his big games
are due he probably will havo a much
stronger team in the field than- he is
now credited with.
Eugene Saves Strength
for Game With Salem
Albany high school-has no game for
this week. The contest with Eugene wa
scheduled for Saturday, but that team
has their game with Baleni high on Nov.
H- .Not wishing to take any chances
01 having men injured and kept out of
the Salem game, Eugene asked the Al-
bay management to play at a Inter
date. ' .
Albany and Eugene will probably
play here on Nov. 25, the day of the
O. A. C.-U. of O. gnrae at Corvallis.
Instead of a game this week Albany
will go to Cottage Grove Tuesday and
play the strong team from that place.

For Electrification of
West Side Railway Lines
Electrification-.of the Southern Pa
cific west side line, from Whiteson to
Corvallis, will be- completed within the
next 60 days according to trainmen.
However, the actual operation of elec
tric trains into Corvallis will be delayed
until April or May because the machin
ery for tho transformer plants will not
be forthcoming from the General- Elec
tric company at Hchnectady, N. Y.',' un
til early spring. That company was the
only one to, bid for the machinery and it
is delayed in filling the order-
At present there is between 150 and
200 men on the post and line crews that
are stringing the wires. Recently the
gap batween Whiteson and McCoy wns
completed. Crews have also been work
ing north trom Corvallis to Wellsdale,
and this part of the line is also com
pleted', so that there now remains about
20 miles of the uncompleted line work.
Headquarters for the construction work
have been moved to Geilinger and south
of there. Heavy rail-was laid as part
of the improvement a year ago. Hail
road men also state it is the intention
of the company to electrify the Salem &
Falls City branch between Dallas and
Salem. .This work, however, will not
start before the completion of the Cor
vallis line. Officials of the company
have been reticent about giving infor
mation concerning the proposed electri
fication between here and Salem, aside
from saying thework would be done in
the near future. There are', those out
side of railroad eirces who .state, how
ever, that they expect to see' work start
ed within a year.'
Prominent Men and V
Women Support President
The Fatherland has called attention
to the fact that every timo Mr. Roose
velt opens his mouth Mr. Hughes looses
10,000 votes, and Mr. Roosevelt opens
his mouth a good many times. Mr. Mc
Eeuiore in an interview with Mr. Fred
eric F. Schrader, the Washington corres
pondent of The Fatherland, declared
iuui ue nopes as a democrat, Air. Hoose
velt will keep up his effective campaign
for Mr. Wilson. Mr. Brvan recently
expressed himself m tho same vein. Heia
niade.it clear that the votes of those':
who believe in fair play and the votes;presiden( therr-we suspect-' that - th'er
of those who believe in "peace are beiug
lost to Hughes through the activities of
Colonel Roosevelt. The Fatherland has
again and again warned Mr. Hughes
that Mr. Roosevelt is knifing him, and
hns asked him to repudiate this treach
erous ally. We are pleased to see that
The New York American, following the
lead of The Fatherland, demands that
the republican party and -Mr. Hughes
should repudiate Mr. Roosevelt. This is
what the New York American says:
Colonel Roosevelt is quoted as having
made the following statement in a re-
ceur, speecn:
"The war has been creeping nearer
and nearer until it stares at us from just
in-uiiu uiir uiree nine limit.
But the chief point is that the
war has come so. close to us that our
country is no longer to be excused if it
endures Mr. Wilson's futility or inm
tion. "

If Mr. Hughes wants to be elected, he
