many friends as "Nibs," was owned by
Mrs. George B. Story, or this city, and
for many years was a popular winner
at the various dog shows..
He was bred by Frank B. Watklns,

Edgecote Peer, dam General Custer's
Belle, and Is without a doubt the last
bull terrier containing- blood from the

and of Edgecote Peer, a winner at va
rious shows throughout the United
States for several seasons.
Championship Won In 1910.
Defender won his championship in
110, and It was said that he eould
have done so In 1907 had Mrs. Story
riot: refused to send him over the c r
cuit. He was first shown as a puppy
In 190T under Dr. George W. Clayton,
of Chicago. I1L, who gave him the fol
lowing awards: President's -cup for
best dog, any breed, Irs show; best bull

Defender's last public appearance
was at the show held in the old Bun
galow Theater In 1913, where he was
entered in the veteran special, only,
under George S. Thomas, and he was
an easy-. winner. Few terriers have
held their showing qualities for so
long a time and up to within a short
time before his fatal illness he always
had been in prime condition.
. Champion Willamette Defender
counted his human friends by the hun
dreds and was almost human in ex
pressions of love and friendliness. In
his later years he was a "pal" to his
little master. .George Watklns Story.
All the youngsters In the Nob Hill dis
trict, will miss the pure white bull
terrier which used to be their boon
companion when young George Story
FOOTBALL HERO IS HOSORED
Big Nino Conference Medal Awarded
to B. V. Bierman.
ST. PAUL, June 20. Bernard W.
Blerman, of Detroit, Minn., known
throughout the college world as one
of the best halfbacks that ever dented
the gridiron sod in the West, was ac
corded highest honors possible for a
Minnesota athlete to achieve. He was
awarded the Big Nine conference med
al. This medal is awarded to one ath
lete in each Big Nine school's graduat
ing class who has made the best all
around record in athletics and scholar
ship. Last year Boles Rosenthal re
ceived the medal at Minnesota.
Blerman's chief athletic activities at
Minnesota were devoted to football and
track sports. He was captain last Fall
of the Minnesota eleven that was con
ceded by most Western followers of the
game to be the best In the conference.
He was a star halfback, being chosen
All-Western by nearly every critic. It
was Blerman's third year In football at
DURING the series of the Washing
ton team against the Chicago White
Sox in Chicago recently, the news
paper writers were given an announce
ment, from the same source from which
all announcements are accepted un
questionably, that Ed Walsh, ex-premier
spitball hurler of Comiskey's tribe,
would make an attempted come-back,
and that he would be opposed by
Walter Johnson. The attendance was
about double what usually conservative
critics think it would have been. Walsh
pitched but Johnson was not used.
When the publto has been led to ex
pect something, it should receive that
something, no matter what the cost is.
President Tener, of the National
League, is trying a new disciplinary
policy. Instead of suspending players
he is fining them, and there will be no
suspensions unless the rules are vio
lated flagrantly. This will work out
well unless the magnates pay the fines
of the players.
This has been a tough season for the
Jtwo present kings of the mound. Both
Johnson and Alexander have been un
able to keep pace with two youngsters
vho are now setting a merry clip.
Johnson hss been forced to follow
.behind Guy Morton, of Cleveland, while
Alexander has dropped In back of Al
Mamaux, of Pittsburg.
If President -Tener, of the National
League, honors the complaint of Garry
Herrmann and rules against baseball

I.VanRlES COHMO ABOUT PACIFIC
COAST HANDICAP KTTEWT.
With Beat Amateurs ef Section Entered
- Sensational Results Are Prom
Although the Paclflo Coast Handi
cap Is a little more than two months
away, inquiries are coming to A. W.
Strowger. president of the Portland
Gun Club, from all parts of the Pacific
Coast. Efforts are being made to have
several members of both the Pastime
Gun Club, of San Diego. Cal., and of
the Los Angeles Gun Club come north
ward to break bluerocks at the Everd-"
lng Park traps, near Jenne Station,
early in September.
Foster Couts, of San Diego, Is one
of the best-known young shooters of
the Pacific Coast. He tied for first
honors in the main event of the Pa
cific Coast Handicap last year, but lost
in the shoot-off to Heinle Pflrrmann,
of Los Angeles.
The shooting of Couts, Pflrrmann and
Frank Melius, & teammate of Pflrr
mann, is creating consternation among
trapshooters of California. It was only
last month that Melius turned in a
score of 396 out of a possible 400, a
mark that has few equals among ama
teurs of the United States since the
hbluerock blazing began.
With Melius and Pflrrmann and
many of the other crack shots of the
Bear state on hand when the four-day
tourney opens here, those present are
likely to see some sensational shoot
ing. Frank Troeh. the Vancouver,
Wash., wizard. Is continuing the old
gait and he expects to be one of the
winners in the Pacific Coast Handicap.

SANTA CLARA TO DROP RUGBY
California College Plans Return to
SAN FRANCISCO, June 21. That
Santa Clara College will play Its last
season of Rugby football this Fall and
will go back to the American colle
giate game in 1917 Is the opinion ex
pressed by Edward Mulholland, who
for two years has been a member of the
baseball and football teams of that in
stitution. When the University of California
switched to the American game last
Fall Stanford asked Santa Clara to ad
here to the English game -and make It
possible for Stanford to have one large
school for Intercollegiate " competition
each year. Santa Clara acquesced. Re
cently the students at Stanford voted
on the question of whether Rugby or
the American game would be played
and the former won the day by a slight
margin, but the motion to sign a
three-year contract for Rugby games
with Santa Clara was voted down-.
According to Mulholland this action
has resulted in a strong agitation In
favor of the American game and he
says that the move Is being well sup
ported. Santa Clara and Stanford
have scheduled a game of Rugby to be
played next November, but according
to Mulholland It would occasion no sur
prise to see Santa Clara switch at the
expiration of this contract.
Followers of the athletic fortunes of
Santa Clara were pleased to learn of
the appointment of Charley Austin as
coach of the team for the coming sea
son. Austin was a star during his
Berkeley high school days and later
developed Into what many considered
the best back field player ever turned
out by Stanford University, where he
played lor two years.

Several of the Fed stars may have

not to overlook the case of Nicholas

Nick had a fine year with the Feds,
but it was suggested that he meet a
different reception when he faced
major league batting. He may later on.
But so far Nick hasnt found any club
that could beat him yet, and July isn't
only a step or two away. As averages
go, 1000 does well enough.
