Sothoron is a chunky fellow, stand

VANCE IS CONFIDENT
Seattle Wrestler Expects to
Toss O'Connell Quickly.
NEW TOE HOLD DEVISED
Puget Sound Star Declares Out
come of Match April 1 With
Multnomah Club Instructor
Will Not Be "Fluke."
Reports from the Seattle Athletic
Club have it that Frank Vance Is in
fine shape for his wrestling match
with Eddie O'Connell, which will be
held at the R.ose City Athletic Club
April 7. Vance has been unfortunate
in hurting the men with whom he has
been wrestling while preparing- him
self for the coming contest.
He broke a rib of one man who
weighed 210 pounds, using the body
scissors, one of the holds which he
applies effectively. He broke another
partner's ankle with a toe hold. Vance
says he has worked out a new toe
hold which is original with him. He
says that he has never seen a man
that uses this hold the way he does.
The physical director of the Seattle
club avers that he can fasten his new
toe hold on anyone, and that when he
once fastens it on a man there is no
way for the opponent to get away from
it witnout giving up or DreaKing nis
leg. Vance emphatically declares that
he expects to fasten this liold on Eddie
O'Connell and adds, in a letter just re
ceived here by the management of the
Rose City Athletic. Club, that it won't
be any "fluke" when he forces O'Con
nell to quit with it.
It seems that in their impromptu
match at the Spokane Amateur Athletic
Club four years ago, Vance was
besting O'Connell with a toe hold, when
friends forced them to quit. O'Connell
has always contended that the hold
was a fluke.
Vance posted his $50 forfeit for
weight and appearance yesterday.
Vance has not wrestled any profes
sional matches under his own name
and when he crawls on the 'mat with
O'Connell. April 7, it will mark the
first appearance professionally of one
of the greatest amateur wrestlers who
ever pulled on a pair of tights.
He wrestled four professional
matches under an assumed name four
or five years ago. . One came off at
Astoria against Dodan Singh. the
Hindu, which Vance won in two straight
falls. He then wrestled Barney Bow,
a light heavyweight, at Kent, Wash.,
and defeated him twice in six minutes.
The third match Vance refuses to
divulge, for he says it would startle
some of the fans of the Northwest if
he did. His last professional start was
made against Harry Krager.' who
weighed 190 pounds. He beat him.

WE have an 18-hole public golf
course already and, from the
looks of things, we may have to ar
range for a nine-hole course, too. The
cost of operating the 18-hole affair ror
the 1915 season was but $1012.27, most
ly for the employment of a grounds
keeper. No fee Is charged for the use of the
links, but to secure one of the lockers
in the spacious clubhouse erected on
the grounds near the first tee a charge
of $5 a year is made. The 'ordinary
player who goes around the course
walks about 3'4 miles for the 18 holes
As to the number of players we have
accommodated during the 1915 season
up to January 1, 1916, 4500 had per
mits to use the links. In most cases
they were persons from all walks of
life who were not able to belong to an

game is becoming more popular every
day. and we expect to have more than
7 000 players around the links from now
until the end of the year.

UNCLE SAMS WIN
AT MONTREAL 6-5
Result of Spectacular Game
Makes Count Even in
World's Series. '
CAPTAIN 0ATMAN IS STAR
Portland Men Wobble at End of
Second Period, but Come
Back With Rnsh and
MONTREAL. Que.. March 28. (Spe-cial.)-r-The
Portland hockey team to
night defeated the Montreal Canadiens,
6 to 5.
Sensational playing by Captain Oat
man and Smoky Harris in the last
period of the game turned the tide of
a bitterly-fought contest and made the
count in the world's series contests two
games each, with the final and deciding
game yet to be played.
The Uncle Sams started tonight's
game with but little hope of victory.
The Canadiens with 15 men in uniform
were ready for any emergency, but the
Uncle Sams made up in dash what they
lacked in numbers.
Portland Jumps Into Lead. ,
The puck had hardly been faced in
the opening period before Smoky Harris
of the Uncle Sams shot it past Vezina
into the Montreal net, scoring the first
point for Portland just 20 seconds after
play started. From then until the end
of the first period the teams battled on
even terms", but Portland jumped into
an apparently safe lead early in the
third period, when, from some fine
skating and. one pretty mixup in front
of the net, Uksila and Harris scored
Here the Canadiens made their great
dash, and in quick succession Profgers,
LaLonde, Pietre and Arbour uetted the
puck past Murray, giving Montreal a
lead of 4-3 at the end of the second
In the final period Harris lost little
time in eluding the Montreal defense
and shooting pact Vezina for the equal
izer. Captain Oatman, of Portland, fol
lowed suit, twice in rapid succession,
giving Portland a lead of 6-4. Just
before the final bell LaLonde, of Mon
treal, made the Canadiens' fifth goal.
Western Rales Prevail.
Tonight's game was played under
Western rules, permitting seven men on
the ice at once and checking the tactics
of the Montreal players which, in the
preceding game, had cost Portland a
victory. The method of penalizing by
ejecting a player and not permitting a
substitute prevented Montreal from
sending in inferior players at the start
to rough things, although the Canadiens
had plenty of men on the side lines for
such a contingency.
Whether the final game.-hich will
decide the. possession of the Stanley
challenge cup, will be played under
Eastern or Western rules will be deter
mined by the toss of a coin. The exact
iate of the contest is also to be de
cided, but it will probably be Thursday
Attendance I Light.
The match was witnessed bv a dis
appointingly small attendance, it being
not any larger than on the night of the
rirst game, when the gate receipts
amounted to about $3000. This may
have been accounted for through the
threats of Ernie Johnson that he would
not play, and the conclusion drawn
that, without him on the team, it would
be an easy victory for the locals. A
victory to Portland meant another
chance in defense of the Stanley cup,
while a victory to the Canadiens meant
the championship and possession of the
trophy. Knowing this the players be
came almost desperate in their efforts
to score, and each gave his team all
that he could towards victory.

March prophecy it can be stated now

1916 will offer more pqnnant possibili

any other year since Hans Wagner and
Nap Lajoie slid from their cradles.
In the American T League you' can
only count two clubs beyond a 1916
pennant hope Cleveland and Phila
delphia. In the National League you can't
pick out even one club and prove that
it is outclassed.
No one believes with any frenzied
sincerity that St. Louis, Pittsburg or
Cincinnati is going to win a pennant
but even if they do not, any one or
the three is liable to finish close up.
Of the 16 major league clubs you can
list 12 six in each league as possess
