To Woodrow Wilson:
As a man familiar with large busi

of fighting to brealc up the trusts by
lawsuits. Taft tried this and it was a
farce comedy. Standard Oil, Amer

love it, and grow rich on iL My ele
vator boy knows all this. We cannot
fool thepeople. Tho day to restore
competition with a trust is to prevent
that trust from using unfair means to
keep a gi-lp on Its monopoly. Govern
ment regulation Is what I have advo
cated. The great body of laboring
men and. capitalists know I am right.

FREIGHT TRAFFIC HEAVY.
Pocatello, Idaho. Oct 13 Some
Idea of the heay traffic on tho Ore
gon Short Lino In freight can be re
ceived by the following flguros; Yes
terday 79 freight trains were han
dled in one day on 540 miles of main
line on "tho Idaho division. These j
trains totalled 21 BO loads and 700 emp- I
ties. The day before was also a good
day In the freight department, 75
trains being hauled, with 2,079 loads
and 770 empties. The freight conges
tion is severely testing the motive
power and machinery department, but
tho engines are holding up splendidly.
The car shortage is hindering the
transporation of the great quantities
of fruit, and right now the great
freightage In potatoes is a seriois
matter to cope with.

Walter Camp, Jr., III.
It is sincerelv to be hoped that the
illness of Walter Camp, Jr., will not
proe so serious as to keep him off
tho Yalo eleven In the fall. If in con
dition he should prove, as he did to
ward the close of last season, one of
the most valuable men on the team,
both as runner and kicker. The
younger Camp's path to football famo
has not beon an easy one, yet his dc
elopment was steady until shortly be
.foro the Princctqn game Inst year,
when he came along by leaps and
bounds Camn plajed three great
games against Brown, Princeton and
The most remarkable feature of
Camp's play w?3 his use of the stiff
arm In running, which is peculiarly
his own It is true that he has had
some special coaching at tiie hands of
his father, but it is greatly to Ins own
credit that ho has- been able to de
e!op a stle of running'about as dir-
.. ii. ..!. .!.. .-- .iii-i iitiLimiuiii' .jii-a3
Ticult to face as any to be found on
the football flold.
Generall speaking, the stiff arm ib
not used so much by the bigger baokfl.
Weudell of Harvard relies upon hie
terrific shoulder drive to throw off
the tackier, and Tod Coy used to run
with a high knee action that was as
effective as the stiff arm. Corhett o
Harvard and Brown of the Army were
backs who relied on what Is known as
"flinging the feet"
Has Long Stride.
Young Camp is as long a strlder as
the two last named, but ho has com
binod the stiff arm with the Ions
stride in a way that bos startled the
old-timers. As a rule the man who
uses tho stiff arm makes a pivot of
the tackier and makes his sharp turn
away from the arm used With the
arm to the right the switch is to the
j loft and vice versn. This is very ef
fective and has been in use on all bi
teams for many years, Harold Weckes
of Columbia being a past master of the,
simple form of stiff arm in his day.
The tall Yalo back, howover, has
gon further in the development of
his means of defense against the tack
ier ;and ho sprang a few surprise
parties in the big games last year.
Had ho beon able to find dry footing
I think that upon more than one oc
casion he would hac been able to
shoot clear of the t.econdarj defense.
Ho almost accomplished the feat as
it was, both against Princeton rul
Like other experts with the stiff arm
Camp uses the arm to tho right and
turn to the left, but he uses it just
long enough to get the defensive back
In the habit of looking for it. Then
he changes his tactics when the op
portunity profccnts itself and taking
the tackier by surprise, throws him
straight across in front of his own
body and swerving sharply in the di
rection In which the arm was first
used continues on his original course
Cleverly used, a6 was the case with
Camp, this maneuver Is baffling in the
extreme, and some of the best tackier-?
ir ', hi if1 ,'! "i'utt? iiiimiMii imhh
are fooled by it, The method takes 1
account of the natural brace and shift
of weight to meet the customary stilt
arm and as a result the tackier Is
taken off hlB balance and sometimes
rather easily thrown acro&a.
It Is next to Impossible to get un
der the arm, and most coaches teach
the tackier to break through It, with
the chest at the same time thrown
across the mnner's legs, but with a
shifty, long-striding back of the Camp
variety, the perfect tackle ia not al
ways possible, and the defennlve play
er muet nail his mau as best he can.
It would be a good plan, perhaps, to
explain right here that In the minds
of those who are not skilled in the
intricacies of football, the stiff arm is
often confused with slugging tactics.
Groans and hisses are often heard in
the stand when a tackier Is htaved off
by the stiff arm. The trick, as all
football men know, is dono with th
open hand against the head or shoul- '
der of the tackier, and the very term
"stiff arm" precludos the possibility
of a blow. Rough players, it is true,
have used tho doubled up fist on more
than one occasion, but this Is hardly
onough to condemn tho legitimate use
of one of the prettiest maneuvers in
In the old days there was a form of
stiff arm used on the defense that had
as much as anything to do with th
abolition of hurdling. Shirley Ellis of
Harvard Weel.es of Columbia and a
host of others will remember It well.
In those days the hurdlei rose up on
tlie backs of hl6 Interference and as
the pile was pulled down shot on over
the press for bis distance. It was an
effective if dangerous play and for a
time was used all over the couutrj
Then the defense found a solution,
as is tho custom of the defense and
it was this solution that helped mark
! the end of hurdling. As the hurdler
rose on the backs of his interfeience
his head came up into the open, and
la defensive back was toul off to do
nothing but meet the runner's chin
with his stiff arm. This proce&s threw
the runner's head back sharply, even IH
though It was not a blow and result- H
ed now and then In all but eerloua In- H
