FANS WANT TO SEE
Return Clash Between Elevens
Would Be Joy.
BARRACKS TO PLAY AGGIES
Winged-M Will Journey to Eugene
Saturday for Encounter AVith,
f BT JAMES J. RICHARDSON.
The 3000 people who watched Foun
dation and Vancouver Barracks stage
their hard-fought gridiron battle at
Sunday's football matinee at the
Vaughn-street grounds are aching to
eee the same two teams engage in a
return clash. The shipbuilders, nat
urally, are of the opinion that they
have the better aggregation, even
though they emerged from the Sabbath
fracas on the short end of a 6-to-0
Tou can't teU any of the Vancouver
khaki-clad warriors that Foundation
has a better aggregation than the
"Sprucers" and get away with it. No,
eiree. The Vancouverites are for their
pigskin artists first, last and all the
time and maintain that had last Sun
day's battle been played . on a field
amply covered with sawdust the fipec
tators would have been given a rare
treat in the art of tricky football. As
it was, neither team pulled anything
except straight line bucking, with, an
occasional attempt at advancing the
ball via the aerial route.
The rival coaches George Dewey
0. A. C), of Foundation, and Private
Leo ("Tick") Malarkey (U. of O.)
etill argue they have the most formid
able eleven, of the two naturally.
Next Saturday, at Corvallis, Van
couver Barracks will take on the Ore
gon Aggies. Coach Hargiss, of the
Aggies, claims a pretty fair aggrega
tion. He has about 2300 men to se
lect his team from and among them are
any number of high school and prep
school gridiron stars.
The Multnomah Amateur Athletic Club
eleven will journey south to Eugene
next Saturday and vrage a gridiron
battle with the University of Oregon
regimental eleven. The winged "M
warriors line up like a pretty strong
aggregation. Coach Philbrook has been
putting the team through some strenu
ous practice three nights a week on
Rehbein, former Lehigh University
gridiron star, turned out for practice
with the clubmen Sunday morning. He
is a backfield player of some prom
inence, but Philbrook has not fully de
cided where he will station the big
Quite a commotion was caused in
the grandstand at Vaughn-street park
last Sunday during the Foundation
Vancouver football game, when Van
couver put over the lone score "of the
game against Foundation.
Someone remarked that Coach Pri
vate Leo Malarkey, of Vancouver, mar
ried in order to evade the draft and
was later snared in the draft net. The
mendacious remark was overh-ard by
Mrs. Leo Malarkey and for a minute it
looked as if there was going to be
The remark was ill-advised and un
timely, because Private Malarkey en
deavored to enlist at the time his
brothers. Bob and Gerald, went into
the service and was turned down on
account of being totally blind in one
eye from an injury sustained while
playing football with the University of
Oregon. Malarkey tried to enlist in
every branch of the service, and in 1917,
when most of the University of Oregon
football team joined the Marine Corps,
he again tried to get by but was
turned down. Malarkey ventured out
on the matrimonial sea only after hav
ing been told there was no chance to
enlist He was later accepted for lim
ited service. Private Malarkey's young
brother, Gerald, was recently killed
on the western front.
SEVEN- MILLION TROUT LIBERATED
1,000,000 of Finny Tribe on in Oregon
Seven million rainbow and' steelhead
trout have just been liberated in Ore

The number of trout liberated this
year is much greater than last, as all

Revenge is sweet in the minds of the

which hung a 7-to-6 defeat on their
comrades of the fifth spruce squadron
last Saturday on the Vaughn-street
grounds. It was a hard-fought battle
and the players were busy every sec
ond. Saturday's game was the second
clash between these two elevens, the
fifth squadron winning the first game
by exactly the same score as in last
Saturday's contest 7 to 6. Now the
fifth squadron wants to take the odd
game and a contest will probably be
arranged for next Saturday either in
Vancouver or Portland.

MOT GET SURPRISE
Commission to Discuss Revi

TROUBLE TO BE PROBED
Plans for Staging Future Fistic
Smokers Liable to Receive Jolt.
Petty Jealousy Disapproved.
The Portland Boxing Commission will
meet tomorrow night at the Office of
Walter B. Honeyman, secretary, at 8
o'clock. Frank E. Watkins, chairman,
issued a call to the commissioners yes
terday to discuss several changes in
the present rules which now govern
It is almost assured that the commis
sioners will dive deep into the trouble
which pervades the boxing atmosphere
in this city and It would not at all be
surprising if some of those promoters,
desirous of staging future boxing
smokers are disappointed in their plans.
Chairman Watkins, speaking of the
squabbles between promoters, and
charges of tampering with boxers, said
yesterday, "I don't believe in this petty
jealousy among promoters and am op-,
posed to granting any permits to those
responsible for causing dissatisfaction
by trying to induce boxers to remain
off from some other promoter's fight
card by offering them more money. I
am sure the rest of the commissioners
feel the same way about it. There has
been quite a bit of this method of
breeding trouble and the boxing game
will never thrive as long as this is al
lowed to get by."
WatkLne conferred with Chief of Po
lice Johnson yesterday and the. latter
has some good id;as regarding the
boxing situation which Watkins has
promised to take up with Mayor Baker
and then with the commissioners at
their meeting tomorrow night.
No definite amount has been named
which must be paid into the Oregon
Boy's emergency fund out of the net
proceeds of each smoker and thia also
will- be taken up and decided at the
meeting to be held tomorrow night.
Jack Fahle, manager of Jimmy
Darcy, received a long distance tele
phone call from one of the allied pro
moters at SanAFrancisco, yesterday,
which was as follows:
"Is this Darcy?
"No, this is Darcy"s manager."
"Will you let Darcy fight in San
Francisco next Friday night?"
, "Alright, we want him to fight Kru-
"yes. that's alright, but how much
is in it?"
"We will give you $250 and two round
"Nothing doing, if you make It $350
and tickets 'we will leave in the morn
ing." "Well, all Kruvosky got for fightincr
in Portland was his railroad ticket and
"That makes no difference to me. If
you want Darcy it's 8350 and tickets."
"Can't use him."
One of the shipbuilding magnates,
who is a dyed-in-the-wool fight enthu
siast, inquires the reason why Johnny
McCarthy does not take on Jimmy
Darcy even though the latter be
heavier. He also remarks that Johnny
is always tackling boys who are much
lighter in weight and for once in his
life ought to give away some poundage
There is no question but what Mc
Carthy would fight Darcy, even though
the Roumanian is heavier by about 12
pounds and would undoubtedly give
Johnny a lacing he would not soon for
get, but his manager, Sol Lcvinson,
knows too much about the boxing
game to let Johnny enter into euch a

weight and Is willing to give away
weight, but when he does it he wants
to know "who's who and why."

Thirty-one state fish hatcheries of
