Chiefs To Battle
Rosehurg's Umpqua Chiefs are
especially anxious to win to
night's game, when they meet
the Powers Athletic club In an
exhibition tussle at Finlay field.
Last year Just about this time
Powers defeated the Chiefs by
a 5-3 score. The Chiefs are ex
tremely anxious to erase this
black mark from the books for
evermore, according to Chiefs'
Manager Earl Sargent.
Tonight's contest may be a
grim affair, as either Vic Lewis
or Wally Richardson take to the
hill. Every pitching device in the
book is expected to be used by
either of the revenge-seeking
hurlers, Manager Sargent di
vulged. If the Infield doesn't go to pot
and muff the ball too many
times, a new high In scores may
be set tonight by the Chiefs.
Game time is 8:30 p. m.

Major interest, however, will be
centered around the one-hour
headllner between Leo Karlinko,
the "Mad Russian," and Georges
Dusette, the French-Canadian
"strong boy." '
Karlinko was nearly mobbed
here several weeks ago following
his questionable tactics against a
popular fne, and he has asked for
police protection when he meets
Dusette this week. The foreign
villain will inevitably employ his
usual illegal style, but Dusette
has had much experience against
meanles and is expected to lake
the measure of the Russian. His

stymied many of the world's top
Tatmen, and Karlinko is expected
to be no exception to the rule.

anticipated. The Williams-LaP-lle
