Portland Tennis Folk Almost
CALIFORNIANS HOLD OWN
Vlckersham Wins Three Matches In
Day. and Paired With Doubles
Teammates Shows Csual Form.
Women Players Prominent.
BT RALPH H. MITCHEI.U
Though the Callforalans are still in
the running. In fact are holding" their
own 1n all events. Portland tennis
players almost eclipsed the visitors in
much of the play yesterday in the Ore
gon state tournament, now on at the
Multnomah Club courts.
. Johnson, the youngest of the Cali
fornia trio, had no trouble In disposing
of Richardson of Seattle, though the
score of S-l. 6-2 does not tell at all
the good, hard fight the northern man
made against his younger though more
clever opponent. Johnson's quick cut
stroke and his continual playing of
Richardson's back hand proved the un
doing or the seaiue man.
Johnson and Fottrell did not play
' In the scheduled men's doubles match.
but they did climb one round nearer
the finals by taking the Rosenfeld-Van
Loan bout by default, Rosenfeld being
Mixed Doubles Exrftlnsj.
Yet of all the day's play in which
the Callfornians took a part the mixed
doubles was by tar the most interest
in? and drew the largest gallery, due
to a great extent to the fact that
beautiful tennis was seen and there
was a Portland contestant in the match.
Miss Parker, who was paired with
Johnson, and was permitted to hit the
bail occasionally, though she did see it
more often. Fottrell and Miss Valleau,
of Alameda, Cal.. won the three set
match by the scores 5-7. S-2. s-3.
Brandt Wlckersham had no trouble
In disposing of Dr. Bllderback by 6-3.
for the right to play "Dick" Wil
der, and though predictions might be
premature, it appears that Johnson will
meet the city champion for the Ore
gon title. Should they meet It la a
foregone conclusion that it will be a
great match. Ewtng. however, will
meet the Californian for the right to
play the winner of the Wilder-Wlcker-sham
match, and there might be an up
Wlrkersham. In the afternoon, played
two double matches, pairing first with
Walter Goss, these two winning hands
down against Shiwes and Elton by the
scores of 6-2, S-l. Elton is a new man
and though he formerly was doubles
champion of North Dakota, paired with
his brother, he has been out of the
game so long and his practice thus
far this year so little that he has yet
to get his stride. Shlves played a
Wick" Coming; Strong;.
Wlckersham is playing probably the
strongest game he has played for sev
eral seasons, and promises to b play
ing better before the present season
Is far spent. He will be seen in the
Tirom& tournament and probably one
or two others as well as take part
In play In California with other North
Pacific players, among whom are Joe
Tyler, of Spokane, and Robert Breeze,
. Following the men's doubles match
Wlckersham and Goss were again seen
In play in the mixed doubles, the first
In which the city champion has parti
cipated here, pairing with Miss Byron,
Goss was paired with Miss Dorothy
Bean, of Spokane, and despite her lame
ankle, caused by turning it the day
previous, the little visitor from the In
land Empire put up a plucky game
with her partner In the second set,
but they lost at S-S. It was Interest

Great Match Today.
Among the women's matches of the
dav. the fair sex being unusually
prominent In the day's play, Miss Val
leau defeated Miss Byron and will
meet Miss Irene Campbell today at 2
o'clock, and there's no gainsaying the
fact that it will be one of the best
matches of the tourney from a fair
In the consolations, McCormlck, the

in and about Los Angeles, still holds
his own and looks like the winner.

the 24th hole by overrunning the green

won the first, Evans the second, the
next four holes were halves, but at the
