PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 21.--After ·traveling 1,800 miles from the middle of the continent 'to the western rim, the Nebraska Cornhuskers today gave a decisive' demonstration of the fact that Missouri Valley football is su- j perior to the article in the Pacific | northwest. | Facing the Oregon Aggies in the i stadium of Multnomah Athletic club i and in the presence of the greatest j gathering of gridiron devotees in the | annals of Portland, football, the Husk- | ers fairly smothered the Oregon Ag- j gies achieving, a triumph of 17 to 7. | ,,,,,,.,,.,,,. t ,,,, ,,...,,,,..., Nebraska's victory was based solely on I Louisiana State 50: Mississippi Col- merit The Aggies competed with the i le se. 7. Missouri Valley champions on even j terms on the score of beef, but the Ne( braska offensive had the. necessary- drive to compile two well-earned touchdowns, while the Aggies crossed the Nebraska goal line on a fluke. Captain Corey added three points to the Nebraska total by booting a goal from placement, sending- the ball over the cross bar from the 30-yard line. Loren Caley, Nehraskas' midget left half back and field general,- annexed the lion's share of the honors for the victorious invaders. Caley carried the j ball ovtjr the Aggies goal for both of } the Huskers' touchdowns. Caley had a third touchdown in his grasp, but fumbled the ball after he had! smashed his way across the Oregon goal. Conn, the Aggies' sprinting half back, scooped the ball and raced the full (length of the gridiron for a touchdown. What Figure* Show.

Oct. 21--Much glory has becrit brought home to Father Penn recently by the girl swimmers of the Conhuskers triumph.

The battle was waged on even terms for jive minutes of the opening period. The Huskers finally secured possession of the bail when Dobson intercepted a forward pass and down the oval in mid-field. A penalty for off-side play cost Nebraska five yards o fdistance, but an end run netted Riddell live yards, a, forward pass from Riddell- to Otoupallk was good for nine yards and a line smash by Dobson netted two yards and a first down. Caley then slid off tackle for six yards and Riddell 16 century m over the Lafayette course in the Seliuylikill. In w i n n i n g the event Miss Dorfner defeated what was considered the best field of wompn swimmers ever as- Portland may have thought it was the center of football interest yesterday afternoon, but Portland was mistaken. While the thousands watched the game from the stands in Multnomah field, other thousands here in j Lincoln alsd watched it and with just as keen perception and with practically aa true a, knowledge of* what was taking place as our friends on the Pacific ! coast enjoyed. | This was all made possible by the excellent bulletin service provided by The Star. It was more than a bulletin service -- it was In fact a- nearly instantaneous repetition of every plaj, made on the distant field. A direct special Western Union wire from the Muitnomah press stand to The Star office was in service. This wire-- the longest that ever carried football returns to^ Lincoln -- was routed from Portland to San Franchisee, thence- through Sacramento, Salt Lake, Denver and Lincoln. With the exception of two short interruptions, the wire worked perfectly, and the reports were flashed simultaneously With the plays. 5,000 Spectators. A crowd, estimated aa high as five thousand "people, Jammed M street in a solid mass for nearly ,1 block and even extended out into Eleventh street. It was a football crowd and every favorable Nebraska, play was widely cheered, while the unfortunate ones met with sympathetic silence. When long runs or touchdowns were made, mpn swimmers ever as- cheering could be heard for many the country.

It was the plucky fight put up I L - ' - - - ' by Miss Galllgan that made the Philadelphian extend herself enough to break her own record. Miss Agnes Hueber, who made the trip with Miss Dorfner, also entered the 100 yard race, and although she was one of the last to finish, she made a creditable showing. the field. "Corey will try for a goal from the field," ticked the wire. "Caley is holding the ball," was the next flash. Then a tense interval and pulsating over the 2,000 mile wire, came: "Corey kicks a field goal." The yell that broke was deafening for CAPTAIN COREY. Captain "Tim" Corey of the 1916 Cornhuskers played the greatest game of his football career yesterday when he led his team to victory over the Oregon Aggies at Portland.

Cornhusker yells. Aggies' Defence Stiffens. Caley's tragic fumble and Conn's fortunate recovery featured the second period, after the Huskers had battled their way along the rectangle and had actually smashed their .way over the Aggies goal. The blowing of the whistle for the end of the third period found the Huskers within two yards of a second touchdown, with two yards to go on a fourth down. The Aggies stiffened on the first play of the final luarter and took the ball on downs on their half-yard line. Cook had superseded Caley as the Huskers' field gen- sral and the bulk of Nebraska's ground n the third period' was gained by a series of spectacular rims carried off honors in two of the races held in a open meet in the Hygela Pool at Atlantic City on July 3. Competing from scratch against a field of eight in the 100 yard handicap, Miss Ryan won the event in 1:19. She al- | lowed soms of her openents as *igh as seventeen seconds handicap. ' In the 50 yard . dash Miss Ryan wrested victory from Peggy Lynch of the Spring Lake Bathing and Tennis association who is considered to be one of the fastest women swimmers at the shore. Miss Ryan's time for the distance was 34 seconds flat. Kathryn Haire, a representative of the Regiment swimming- ppol, has done much to place Philadelphia, first in the field of athletic sport.

Defeat of Chicago and Illinois Unexpected--Gophers 1,00k Like Winners. CHICAGO. Oct. ' 21.--Western football dope got an awful jolt today when Northwestern beat Stags's Mnroons, 10 to 09. and Ohio State defeated Illinois by a hairline, 7 to 6 score. Not since 1901 had Northwestern won in the annual city clash. While Northwestern ' Is better than In past years, Chicago has slipped back and today's defeat puts her out of the 1916 Big Nine championship. Ohio State's defeat of Illinois at Champaign shows the big Champaign school much weaker than In 1915, when she held Minnesota to a conference tie. Minnesota Favored. Big Nine dopester looked tonight to Minnesota as the logical 1916 winner. Coach Williams iius built up a powerful scoring machine, as today's gigantic total of 81 points rung up against the South Dakota huskies shows.

Mnss., Oct. 21.--Without uncorking any new plays or new formations, the Harvard eleven rolled th« struggling Massachusetts Aggies Into tho mud this afternoon', piling up the one- aided score of 47 to 0. The Crimson line was firm against the feeble attempts of the farmers' back field, -while on the attack the Harvard backs showed a punch that carried them through the Aggies' line for long gains. Incessant fumbling by both sides marked the game, one by the Crimson on the Aggies K - n r d line costing a touchdown.
