-a V 1 JJ n THANKSGIVING brines mostly pleasant thoughts a a rule, some of than dealing 4 with the results of football games, others with the observance fit the, holiday, and other timely topics. :? Bat Ten on Thanksgiving day, one Salem resident was so wrought p over something that he saw that he registered "pet pcovcr. "Tabloid Interviews' aren't limited to the persons the New Oregon Statesman re porters happen to meet and . question; persons who wish to be quoted . may send In their opinions, marked "interviews" and bearing their signatures. MARTHA PACKJNAW. Chemawa student, said: "We had a real Thanksgiving dinner1 too. Grace Peterson and Freda Strom and I bad a chicken apiece. We would have had turkey but it Isn't vary good for the waist line. The regular meal at the school, though, was pork produced right here on the place." A. W. LAWRENCE, a Thanksgiving visitor to Salem from Corvallls, said: "There is one thing about youngsters on Thanksgiving day; they are mighty quiet when gathered around a table loaded with such goodies as mother gets up." DR. O. L. SCOTT, chiropractor, said: 'Herbert Hoover's visit to South America Is making a fine Impression on our southern neighbors. I think his trip is a fine thing and should lead to some very constructive results in the long run." R. V. (NIG) BORLESKE. coach of the Whitman football teamV said: "That boy Harsh-barger, who caught a pass that bounced out of De Poe's-hands-and ran 40 yards to a touchdown, is fast enough for anybody's football team. He scored on University of Washington and made a 75 yard run against Vvasnington State that wasn't allowed. But he's too- cocky, so I've kept him on . the bench most of the time. cynthia Mcintosh, 152 South 13th street, said: "I'm not a perpetual 'crab,' but the more I read the daily papers, the more wonder that the people of this country do not come to their senses and take some united action against the sluggishness of our legal procedure. The pet peeve of H. R. is timely, because be railed up and told The New Oregon Statesman about it right after the Thanksgiving football game at Sweetland field and while he didn't say so, he probably was goaded in to telling about it, by something he saw at the game. . . . ."The thing that gets my risibilities smoking is the crowd of rail birds - that watch football games' from the opposite side of t!ie mill- race to avoid paying admia-! sion, and not content with exhibiting their cheapness in that way, must insult the home team when it's doing its beet." I am mindful that there are a if w knowing lawyers, and even a fewnewspapers, that are paving the way for such action.-But the people; they grumble and seem to think nothing can be done about It." A. B. ESTEP, clerk of the Argo hotel, said: "That was a fine game O. S. C. played against New York university; and I was glad to see Oregon win in the south, too. But I was most interested in the high school .game In which Medford played at Portland. That Medford high school certainly has develaped a football reputation. I was glad to see the smaller school win. VESSEL LIMPS INTO PORT AFTEB STORM SAN DIEGO, Nov. 29. (AP) With a twisted railing more than 30 feet above the water, and a gap where one of her vegetable bins had been, the freighter Will-faro today brought In mute evidence of the strength of the blow which caught President-elect Hoover's party on the Battleship Maryland last week.

With soma difficulty the lifeboat was secured,' but the railings forward and aft of it were gone, and the wreckage of the vegetable bin was picked up from the deck below. Brand new paint from the lower deck had vanished completely, swept off by the seas, when things quieted down. Only the Wlllfaro's seaworthy r qualities kept things , from being much worse, the captain said. Fierce Explosion j 'Felt in 'Roseburg ROSEBURG, Ore... Nov. 29.

NEIL Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK. Nov. J9. (AP) A nightmare, stark and terrible and fashioned of great, crashing figures in the pure white of Ore- today: the dream of New York University for a football team" that could challenge the recognition or the nation. It was a dream that began when the first leaves of the fall turned brown, grew through overwhelming conquest of Colgate and Missouri, and reached its height in smashing victory over Carnegie Tech, master of Notre Dame. It came to as harsh and unexpect ed an end as any football dream could, shattered on the final day of the season by an eleven con ceded scarcely a chance to win.

The actual score of the upheaval. 26 to IS, gave but little Indication of Oregon State's complete domination. Through a forward wall that had smashed every previous thrust three great western backs Captain Howard Maple, "Honolulu" Henry Hughes, and Cy Sherwood ripped and tore repeatedly, carving out long gains, tremendous marches, and three times piling over the Violet goal for touchdowns. Over the heads of the be wildered forwards, beyond and through the N. Y. U. backs, Maple threw forward passes that dazed the defense and accounted for the fourth score. Easterners Find Competition Strong Looking as futile' and worn against Oregon as they did keen and powerful In whipping Carnegie Tech. the Violets played their game only in the -. opening and closing minutes of the brilliant battle. Led by Ken Strong, high est scoring back in the east, the violets etormed out to score a touchdown in the first few min utes of play, then languished un der a battering that lasted until the final moment of the contest, before reviving and fashioning the second score. At the epening gun. Strong raced back 20 yards with the kick-off, tossed a 22 yard pass, and then charged through tackle, back to the center and straight down the field for 40 yards. Oregon held bitterly, but Follet swept around an end for 12 yards and the touchdown. Crowd Decides Everything's Over ' The 40.000 in the stands sat back, contentedly watching another typical Violet slaughter. Before they knew what had happened, the surge of the white-clad westerners was under-way, the ball was in New York territory, and it stayed there for all but the last few minutes of the game, punctured by touchdowns, until the field was almost hidden In the dusk. Coming back after that first score, the Oregon State line opened gaping holes for Sherwood, Maple and Hughes to march ten yards at a lick, to the N. Y. U. seven yard line.
