U39 PENDLETON BOYS IE CHAMPIONS Hill Military Successfully and Thoroughly Downed at Football. BEST GAME EVER SEEN ON LOCAL FIELD. One Thousand People See Thanks giving: Struggle for Athletic Supre macy and Are Well raid Star Game Put Up by Uie Locul Team Devlne's PunM and Place Kicks Wonder of Game Challenge Issu ed Butte High - for Northwest qMunplonrtijp. Pendleton kith achool, 13; Hill Military, - With the above score the high school team won from Its Portland foe yesterday and by doing so cap tured the academic football champi onship of Oregon. It waa a football game that the spectators saw yesterday; the beet that has ever been seen In Pendleton and as pretty a high school game as la ever played. From start to finish It was a lively game. The teams were well matched, both played hard and consistently and used some good generalship. That Pendleton had the superior team, though the lighter one. Is shown by the score and no one who saw the game can say that the score does not well represent the merits of the two elevens. Denno" Place Kick TTntll a successful nlaee kirk was made by Devlne for Pendleton to ward! the close of the first half the game had been an even break be tween the two teams. Both teams had been able to make some good gains and at times the bnll had been carried dangerously close to the Pen dleton goal. However, It was soon worked to the other end of the field and was finally In good position for a try for goal. Devlne sent It over the crossbar to the Joy of the side liners. The Touchdown. It was towarda the close of the second hnlf that Pendleton worked the ball straight down the field for a touchdown. Line plays, principally the tandem formation, were used and they were pulled off with a whirl that baffled the Portland boys. Fi nally the 10-yard line was reached and with one good gain Arthur Means was sent over the line for the coveted touchdown. The kick for goal waa a difficult one In view of, the wind and the ball went a little i to the right of the post. Had It not been for the wind the flnnl score of the game would have been 14 to 0. j When Means touchdown was mnde I there remained only five more min- utes of play. Plainly disheartened. though still fighting well, the H. M. j A. team could not' ston the high, school plays and soon the ball was again close enough for a place kick. It was again sent over the bar by Devlne. When the final whistle blew a few minutes later, Pendleton was again making good gains and had there been five minutes more time could probably have added to Its to tal score. ,11111 Was Outplayed. In every department of the game yesterday Pendleton had the best of It. On straight old-style football, which was used nearly entirely, the local team ployed faster and made much better gains. Time and again Baker plunged through the H. M. A. line for good-gains, while the halves were also good yardage mak ers. On the defensive the Pendleton line was like a wall and few gains were made through It. The best J For the first time since before the state holidays were declared the local wheat market Is now open for busi ness and while no" purchases have; yet been reported the fact that the grain companies are again In a posi tion to buy is encouraging. Seventy cents for club Is the open ing price and In view of the tight money market and the way wheat has dropped In Chicago, It Is considered a good one. But, according to the grain buyers themselves,, wheat will go higher. "I look for the price to go even higher than It was before the panic," snld one buyer today. "The wheat Is all needed and when the grain companies get Into position to han mm n Tills Look Better. Youngatown, 'Nov. 29. More than 6000 men will be restored to their Jobs today when the plant of the Republic Steel & Iron and the Brown-Bonnell companies resume operations. The plants have been Idle two weeks. It was also announced that within 10 days the big plant of the Youngatown Sheet & Tube company would be In operation and 2000 more men will be .back at work. gains for Hill were made on end runs. Several times Loomes, Hill's left half, raced with the ball for a long gain, but never did he get through for a straightaway run. Contrary to expectations, few open plays were used though much punt ing was Indulged In, during which Baker for Pendleton, f r outplayed the visiting full back. The forward pass was used but little and It was so closely watched for, that It avail ed but little. A good gain was made once by Penland for Pendleton, but another throw was gathered In by a Hill play er. Several times the visitors tried the new play, but each time the ball was taken In by a Pendletonlan. An All Star Teem. In the game yesterday there were no particular stars, but every man on the Pendleton team proved him' self a hero. As In other games, Ba ker was the strongest player and yes terday he added to his glory. The same was true of Devlne, whose kicking counted eight for P .H. S. Arthur Means and Reeves as halves were In every play, as did also Kim ball at quarter, though the little play. er had no such a chance as he did In the former game. Penland and Euster at end did spectacular work and the former es peclally pleased the crowd by the way he gathered In the ball at times. Lester Means and Devlne as tackles were largely responsible for the fact that the line seemed like a stone wall to the Hill boys. Storle and Engdahl, the guards, and Hawley Bean, centejJJkjwIse had something to do witn mis. Bean at eenter put It all over his big opponent, while Engdahl surprised them all by the way he went through the Hill line to block the plays. Mark Moorhouse and Keron, of Portland, were the officials and their work was most satisfactory. Only twice were penalties Imposed, one upon each team. There was almost no wrangling and but one man was Injured during the game. He was Smead, right half on the visiting eleven. In every way the game was a re markable one for a high school con test. For an academic game there was little fumbling and no bad breaks were made by either side. Clionrtige for Butte. With the defeat of Portland high school by the Baker City eleven yes terday, Pendleton's title to the state championship was made complete. Previously Portland high and Hill had played a tie game while the H. M. A. team had defeated all other academic rivals In western Oregon. Last evening Cress Sturgls, mana ger of the local team, wired a chal lenge to the Butte high school which has defeated Spokane and now has the lead among the northwest acad emic teams.

At present the buyers are not anxious to make any purchases for the grain companies have not suf ficiently disposed of their present holdings to desire further loads very badly. However, they admit' that the market Is now open and that they might buy some wheat If It wns of fered them for 70 cents. It Is estimated that nearly one fourth the crop nf the county Is yet unsold, though some declare that loss than 25 per cent Is still held by the growers. However, It Is certain that over 1.000.000 bushels Is still held by the farmers and if prophecies come true, those who have hold will not regret It.

Bad Ten Dollar Bank Note Taken in by Ben Burroughs. Beware of the ten dollar bill that looks good but Isn't. There are some of them here and they are be ing passed about. Today one was given to Ben Burroughs, manager of the Sprlngston lumber company, and he has since given It to the police.
