that the Seattle Shipyard a " League

Bout Is Fat Throughout 'With Sc
attic Opening Gash on Port-
lander's Forehead Gorman
and Wins; Battle to Draw.
Portland turned out its largest flgh
thro7vr YV edresday night at the Kiev
enth-street Playhouse, where Marty
Farrell, of New York, and Al Sommers,
of Portland, went six rounds to a draw
The sale of seats stopped at 9 o'clock
and police prevented any further influx
of fans. It is estimated that fully 300
flght enthusiasts were refused admit
tance to the show house.
After the second bout of the evening
Judge Stapleton stepped Into the ring
and introduced Rev. William Wallace
Youna-son, D. !., superintendent of the
Methodist Churches of the Portland dis
trict. who urged the fans to contribute
to the Salvation Army war fund drive,
$1 for each of the 600 fight fans who
were refused admittance to the build
inir. The fans responded generously
with a shower of coin into the ring.
The contribution totaled 1651.18. Port
land fight audiences have contributed
most generously to every worthy cause.
Farrell Lacks Punch.
The FarreU-Sommers bout was a dis
ppointment to the banner flght crowd
of the season. It was devoid of any
real fighting. Farrell outboxed the
Portlander at every stage and had him
awlnging like a garden state, but Dlain
ly snowed ne lacks the punch neces
sary to etow his opponent away. Som
mers put up a game and aggressive
ngnt with the New Torker and took
everything; Farrell had.
f arrell's left hook was working over
ime and ha landed on Sommers' right
eye enough times in the fifth round to
open up a gash which bled profusely.
Sommer tried everv minute he was
in the ring and forced the rlehtintr. but
was unable to land any solid punches.
Farrell landed by far the' majority of
punches, but none of them did any dam
age to Sommers. It looked like Farrell
piled up enough points for a decision.
ut Referee Jack Grant evidently con
cluded the New Yorker failed to do
nough fighting- to warrant giving him
he verdict. It was a scientific boxer
pitted against a fighter.
Muff Bronson received the verdict
over Chet Neff at the end of the sixth
round. It was a fast bout, with honors
bout even outside of the first and fifth
rounds, which the two boxers divided.
Bronson shaded Neff in the first round
by using- a straight left which found an
easy resting place on Neff's "beezer.'
NefT was up and coming, but couldn't
eep away from Bronson a rapid-fire
attack. The second, third and fourth
rounds weer about even, with-both lads
fighting hard.
fteff stepped out in the fifth inning
nd opened a cut on Bronson's forehead
with a wicked right-hand smash. The
gore covered Muff's face until he
looked the part of a "hard-boiled" In-
ian. It waa Neffs round. The lads
stepped lively in the sixth, and fought
rd. .Twice they went sprawling
hrough the ropes. It waa give and
ake during the entire three minutes.
Referee Grant raised Bronson's hand in
token of victory at the end of the
Joe Gorman and Weldon Wing
fought six fast rounds to a draw. Wing
was the aggressor, but Gorman landed
by far the cleanest and hardest punches.
Gorman used a short-arm Jolt which
rocked the Alblna lad on numerous oc
casions. In the third round Gorman
had Wing wobbly and bleeding, but
Wing stood his ground and gave the
Oakland lad a stiff argument. Wing
Improved aa the bout progressed dur
ing the last three rounds. Gorman
went in with a do-or-die spirit in the
sixth and put up a slam-bang finish.
He was on top of Wing every second
and fairly smothered him with a fusi
lade of" wallops. Wing shot a hard
right-cross to Gorman's Jaw as the
gong sounded at the close of the sixth
Gordon Defeats Ryan.
Abe Gordon won a hard-fought four
round decision from Billy Ryan in the
scrappiest bout of the night. The lit
tle fellows gave the fans a run for
their money from start to finish. Ryan
started out like a world beater, but
soon tired. In the first round Ryan
sent Gordon to the mat with a right
cross to the Jaw. Gordon claimed a
foul saying he was hit low In addition
to receiving a crack on the Jaw, but
the referee refused to allow it- and
Abe came back fighting madly. In
the second Abe drove hia fist to Ryan's
Jaw a few seconds before the close
of the round and Ryan went sprawling
to the mat. The gong saved him from
a knockout.
Both Ryan nnd Gordon mixed fu
riously in the third, until Ryan ran into
a left hook which took the steam out
of him. Abe forged ahead from that
time and won the verdict.
Joe Hoff hit soldier Roselll with
everything but the ring posts and was
winning handily until he fouled the
Vancouver man in the third round and
lost the decision.

cision from Joe Hogan in the curtain

Man. W ho) With Tom, Tackled Burr, of
, Harvard, la Famous 6-0 Game, Al
ways Denied Planned Assault.
Jimmy Quill, fullback of the Yale
football team which defeated the Har
vard eleven in the Stadium in 1905 by
Sto 0, died recently at Battle Creek,
Mich. Quill was a great player, but h
gained his greatest fame, not so much
on account ot his prowess in general
as from a particular incident in that
battle with Harvard. Quill will be re
membered as the co-worker with Tom
Shevlin In the assault on Francis Burr,
of Harvard, early In that contest. Now
all three Quill, Shevlin, Burr have
gone into the great beyond.
It always has been a disputed point
whether Quill and Shevlin committed
the assault on Burr intentionally or
whether It was a coincidence that the
two Yale men should have Jumped on
the Harvard star as if with intent to
murder. Burr was the bright particu
lar luminary of the Crimson eleven and
certainly it was desirable from a Yale
viewpoint that he be eliminated - as
early as possible. It wasn't long after
the opening play that Roome, of Yale,
lifted a punt straight into the air. Burr
stood braced for the catch and Just as
the ball nestled In his arms Quill and
Shevlin Jumped on him with terrific
Twas said one held and the other
mauled, and the result was that Burr
was carried off unconscious, with
broken nose and minor contusions. Paul
Dashiel, the umpire, imposed no pen
alty. Burr was as game as they came
and he .would not stay out. After a
while he was patched up and he re
sumed his place in the lineup. That
was "some" battle, even for those days.
Hutchinson, who had displaced Tad
Jones, got into a feud with Leary, of
Harvard. Leary gave "Hutch" an awful
deal while "Hutch" was busy catching
a punt. A little later Leary again came
into contact with "Hutch," and Leary
naa to take time out to adjust a ban
dage on his head. A pleasant time was
had by everybody.
Quill always denied that his assault
on Burr was premeditated or that the
ferocity thereof had been intentional.
Quill got his football training at Am
herst, where he was captain in 1901.

March -14. (Special.) Two Oregon men
came through the wrestling season,

Oregon Agricultural College, last Sat

through their 1919 matches.
Both of the' men went through the
season without meeting their match.
Taylor, at 165 pounds, was the sensa

victories in the meets with the Uni-
ersity of Washington and the Aggies
were clean-cut and decisive. w iison

Besides Taylor and v iison, Bruce
Flegel, who went into the Aggie meet
with only ten days of preliminary work
as a substitute for Simola, the regular
varsity 113-pounder, was the only man
to win the coveted wrestling "O" this
year. The wrestling letter Is the most
difficult to win of any of the major
sport awards, as a man not only has
to make the team, but must also win
his match in an inter-collegiate meet
before he is entitled to, the letter. Only

the past five years. Captain Ruther

games won and 15 lost. W. O. W. No.

extra game will be rolled between the
two leaders to decide the championship
of the league.
The teams down in the percentage

threw a scare into the two leading
teams. The M. A. A. C. No. 3 team took
two out of three games from the Rose
City Park League dealers, while the
Turn Vereln bowler won three straight
games from the W. O. W. No. 77 team,
which cost the latter the championship

Willie Ritchie, Boxing" Instructor, Con
tends Fighters Can Be Devel
oped From Good Boxers.
CAMP LEWIS, Wash., March 14
One-half hour's workout at shadow
boxing was decreed for members of
the 91st Division in an order issued to
day at division headquarters. The or
der specifies that one-half of the hour's
physical exercise prescribed for men
at camp must be given over to shadow
boxing. The other half-hour may be de
voted to drill, walking, liallplaying or
some other exercise, but there must be
30 minutes of shadow boxing.
Shadow boxing has become quit
general throughout camp in the work
of Willie Ritchie, boxing instructor,
and his 472 assistants. Ritchie con
tends that shadow boxing is the best
way to develop a scientific boxer. It
teaches him quickness of movement,
and the alertness which makes him
ready when the opponent leaves an
opening for landing a blow. Ritchie's
theory in conducting classes in every
company in camp is that "you can't
make a boxer out of a fighter, but you
can make a fighter out of a boxer."
Shadow boxing helps a man to fight
with his head Just as much as with his
hands. Ritarhie contends, and the half
hour of shadow boxing ordered for the
men is expected to help considerably in
the boxing lessons and make the teach
ing of the art of self-defense general
throughout camp.

an inexperienced player and soon de
veloped into one of the best shortstops
the league ever produced.
The major league clubs have a great
habit of sending out contracts to
drafted ballplayers or those purchased
by release, and granting only a slight
increase over their minor league sal
ary. When Bobby Groom was drafted
into the majors he was sent a con
tract calling for less salary than he
received with the Portland team.
It is not known what salary the
Cubs offered HoIIocher. but it is a safe
bet that Charlie Is not asking $5000
or anywhere near that figure.
NEW YORK. March 14. Remarkable
changes are taking place in the classic
srort events of the Nation af a result
of wartime conditions, and many close
followers of athletics do not hesitate
to express the opinion that m some
cases famous competitions, particularly
in intercollegiate ranks, have passed
for all time. Whether this is correct or
not only the future can decide, but the
fact remains that, temporarily at least,
certain standard sport fixtures have
been abandoned in favor of substitute
contests which differ greatly from the
original events.
Both the Poughkeepsie and New Lon
don four-mile boat races have been
dropped, and in place of these there
will be the National patriotic regatta
at Annapolis, May 18, as well as a num
ber of dial and triangular regattas.
These will give every college of the
East which supports rowing oppor
tunities for the. eights to compete in
from one to three two-mile races dur
ing the Spring of 1918.
Novelties also -appear upon the col
lege track schedules, as several of the
important dual track and field meets
of the past seasons have been dropped
and other competitions substituted. For
the first time in more thaon 20 years, if
1917 be excluded, there will be missing
the annual dual track games between
Yale and Harvard and probably Prince
ton and Yale. In place of these college
athletic classics there will be a trian
gular set of games between Harvard,
Yale and Princeton at New Haven on
May 18, which may prove to be the in
itial event in an annual series.

'"Moose" watched the game at Van
couver Monday, then visited New West
minster and boarded the Tuesday night
boat from Vancouver.
Coming down the boys had a poker
session in one of the staterooms that
lasted until Moose announced he was
going to bed.
Going out of the room, he playfully
locked them all in the stateroom and
left. He has not been seen since.
The boat was searched when Seattle
was reached, the hotels here have been
combed thoroughly and the crowd last
night was watched carefully, for he in
tended to witness last night's game.
As yet no trace of him has been
found and fears for his safety are entertained.'
