Looks Good to Him.
Ed never could see any
chew but a big hunk of
oversweet tobacco. "You
take this plug of Real
a small chew two or three
squares. See how long it
holds its pure, rich taste.
If you don't admit that
Gravely gives you tobacco
satisfaction without extra
cost, I'll buy your plug for
a month." Hanged if Ed
didn't walk in- next day,
grab off a plug of Gravely
and throw down his money
just like a little man!

One of the biggest assets Walter
Henry McCredie possesses is talking
at random to, sport writers, and when
his chatter later appears in print and
the elongated pilot of the Salt Lake
Bees starts checking up on himself, he
often chalks himself up with a couple
Yesterday was one of McCredie's
talkative days. Might have been the
cold weather or a glass of G. T.'s
grapejuice started the handsome-looking
manager on his wild outburst, but
nevertheless he came through with
some valuable information concerning
his baseball future, only half of which
need be true to cause the Salt Lake
fans to drape the Mormon town in
crepe and Portland baseballists to cry
out with glee.
Salt Lake Off LUt.
"T will not manage the Salt Lake
team," said McCredie after perusing a
letter sent him by none other than
Young "Petah" Jackson, the "chocolate
coated" trainer of the Salt Lake Bees,
who is at present stationed at Mare
Island, where he enlisted as a "gob"
and who is quite anxious concerning
his position with the Bees for the
"I signed up with Salt Lake for one
year," said Walter, -"and I have no
strings on them nor they on me. I was
treated very cordially by President
Lane and Salt Lake fans last season,
but I am not going to manage the Bees
"Portland looks good to me whether
we get in the Pacific Coast or Pacific
Coast International League, and unless
something looms up in the meantime
I'll manage the Portland team.
"I look for baseball to come back
strong here in the Northwest next
year. Portland is in a receptive mood
for good baseball, and" if we can't break
Into the Pacific Coast League, I am
of the opinion that the cities which
will comprise the Pacific Coast Inter
national will be able to support teams
equally as strong as the Pacific Coast,
now that the war is over and condi
tions are slowly righting themselves."
Good Team Assured.
If only half of what the former
Beaver pilot says finally matures, local
fans will have cause to look forward
to good baseball during 1919. As has so
often proven true, the man who won
numerous pennants for P.ortland goes
off in a whirl every now and then
and when he starts checking up on
, himself finds he has "fanned with the
If Walter McCredie is sincere in his
plan to manage the Portland team in
1919 whether the Rose City casts its
lot with the Pacific Coast or Pacific
Coast International it is almost a cer

Captain James Scott, of the United
States Army. formerly Jim Scott,
pitcher for the White Sox, intends to
return to baseball, now that the war
is ended, but he does not intend to go
back to the White Sox. It is stated on
good authority that he has signed to
play with the Fairbanks-Morse team
of Beloit, Wis., one of the strongest
semi-pro organizations in the Middle
West. Unless Scott has more stuff on
the ball than he showed while at Camp
Lewis last year he wouldn't make good

AT COMING SMOKER.
Commissioner Henry Succeeds
Arranging: Six-Round Semi-Wind-Up
George Henry, of the Portland box
ins commission, last night accom
plished what a., bunch of private box
ing ' promoters have been endeavoring
to do for many months, when he signed
Muff Bronson to meet Peter Mitchie in
a six-round semi-windup bout at the
smoker to be held at the Heilig Thea
ter "Wednesday night, January 8.
Bronson and Mitchie engaged in a
10-round bout at Vancouver, Wash.,
about a year ago, Mitchie winning the
decision after a hard fight. There has
been considerable rivr-.lry betwetn the
two lightweights since that time, but
they could not agree on terms.
Commissioner Henry cornered repre
sentatives of the two boys yesterday
and made offers to them. They asked
time to consider the terms and agreed
to meet with Henry last night, which
they did, and signed articles. Both
Bronson and Mitchie have already
Morris Lux will most likely fight
Lee Morrissey in one of the six-round

round bout at Astoria Bhortly after Lux
arrived in this neck of the woods, and
they are said to have furnished Lower
Columbia River fistic fans with a
peppery scrap which ended in a draw.
LEONARD WILL MEET DUNDEE
Bout Scheduled at Newark Club
For the first time since Benny Leon
ard annexed the lightweight cham
pionship he will box Johnny Dundee,
the clever Italian fighter. It was re
cently announced that Leonard and
Dundee will clash before the Sports
xiicii a umu, in icwitrn, on ine
night of January 13.
Dundee's last fight with Leonard in
Philadelphia was staged a few months
before Benny knocked out Welsh foi
the title. Often a match had been pro
posed between the two, but nothing
ever developed. Their meeting in Phil
adelphia was a sensational one. The
majority of the critics gave the deci
sion to Dundee.
A few weeks after the Kilbane
triumph Leonard was in Philadelphia.
He was asked if he cared to meet
Dundee and replied:
"I'll meet Dundee any time. I want
you to mark this. I'll knock Dundee
out the next time I face him. He's one
iellow I'm going to get."
Leonard is much heavier than Dun
dee, but the Italian wonder never did
pay much attention to weight. Dundee
always gave Leonard a great fight, ac
cording to press reports of their fracas.
Billy Gibson, Leonard's manager, has
an elaborate campaign mapped out foi
his protege. He eventually expects to
take Leonard to Europe, but wants to
give him a chance to clean up all op
position in this country first. Leonard
fights Paul Doyle at Philadelphia to
Boston Nationals, returned from France
on the Baltic. Haughton had been
abroad several months, and in France
met a. number of the baseball celebrities.
Dibble Now a Benedict.
NEW YORK, Dec. 30. Robert J.
Dibble, for four years American single
sculls champion, and his bride of two
days arrived here from their home in
Toronto yesterday. Dibble served for
two years with the Canadian expedi
tionary forces in France and went
through some of the bloodiest battles.
He several times was wounded and
finally invalided home.

BOXING SAILORS' MAJOR SPORT
Weekly Shows at Great Lakes Naval
Training Station Attractive.
GREAT LAKES, 111., Dec. 30. Box
ins has been one of the big factors
in preparing Uncle Sam's sailors for
their battles on the seas with the
Hun U-boats. Since Lieutenant Jack
Kennedy took hold of the sport at Great
Lakes and made boxing shows the
big weekly feature in the life of the
gobs, boxing has become the major
sport of the station.
At each weekly show many officers
and visitors are present, including wo
men. Those who attended a boxing
show for the first time up here were
pleasantly surprised when they learned
that boxing was not the brutal, man
killing sport they had been led to think.
Great Lakes sailors would as soon
have the week-end liberty taken away
as to lose their boxing show. If they
took a, vote among Illinois sailors' on
the proposed Illinois boxing bill, the
gobs would indorse it unanimously. J.

CHICAGO, Dec. 30. A shakeup in
the 1919 football schedule of North

yesterday. The game with Ohio State
University, scheduled to be played at

played at Evanston, was arranged instead.

Blames Lack of Training and
Thinks V. S. Could Have Won.
NEW YORK. Dee. 30. (Special.)
Harry Greb, the Pittsburg middle
weight, who was a member of the
American boxing team which partici
pated in the recent International tour
nament in London, won by the Britons,
declares the Englishmen had the bet
ter of it all the way through, but added
that the boys from this country would
have won hands down if they had not
labored under such severe handicaps.
"In the first place," Greb said, "we had
to go into the tourney without a bit of
training. Richie Mitchell, the clever
Milwaukee boxer, who was our first
lad to perform, was given a rank de
cision, which seemed to take the heart
out of all our boys.
"If the bouts had taken place in this
country under proper auspices, our boys
wouia nave won every bout. Jimmie
Wilde is a great boy, considering his
low poundage, around 105 pounds, but
Joe Lynch and Pal Moore can beat him
any day in the week. Moore had no
trouble beating Wilde, as he had the
last round in his favor by a large mar
gin, while the first two rounds were

The Los Angeles Athletic Club,
which institution was awarded the
women's National fancy diving cham
pionships event to be held during 1919,
recently announced that the event
would be held in February, which is
three months earlier than the event
was ever staged by the Multnomah
Amateur Athletic Club. In 1916. when
the Los Angeles Athletic Club last
staged the big National diving meet
for the mermaids, the event was held
during the Summer months.
Acceding to thoe best informed on
diving and swimming events at Mult
nomah Club, the southerners have a
reason for putting the women's fancy
diving championship over in Febru
ary, but are going to be foiled in their
plans by the local athletic Institution
if what Frank Watkins. of the Winged
M institution. Bays is correct.
"! Co not believe the Los Angeles
Athletic Club i acting quite rig'11. tn
announcimr the women's fancy diving
meet for February," said Watkins yes
terday, "but it that is their plan we
will have The. ma Payne, the prevent
National champion, and our other div
er! ready to go south and -nter. l'lie
event has nevti been held earlier than
June in previous years and if they
think they arc going to catch us un
awares they are very api to be fool"1.
"Two years ago. when their candi
date, Aile?n Allen, was champion, wi
were not notified that the event wis
to be held urril five days before the
night set for the meet. Norman Uoks
was In the south at that time swim
ming for the Olympic Club and ad
vised us of the Los Angeles Club's
pians. We never received en'ry blanks
and weie forced to send Cjnmaiiee
Meyer's entry in by wire. The time
was so short that the local champion,
who was defeated for National honors
by Alleen Allen, was give 1 her ex
penses by a member of the olun until
such time as the trustees met and took
care of the expense.
"Portland was awarded the women's
National fancy diving meet In 1917 and
held the event in June. Miss Allen
did not appear here and forfeited her
title to Constance Meyers, who proved
herself the peer of the local mermaids
at that time. Last year the Los An
geles Athletic Club was awarded the
National event, but said Miss Allen
would be unable to compete and asked
the Multnomah Club to stage the event,
which it did. Miss Thelma Payne, of
the Winged M Club, winning the Na
Frank Watkins said that Miss Payne
would be ready for the National meet
at Los Angeles and expressed his opin
ion that she would retain her title un
less Miss Allen has considerably im
proved. A large number of swimming and
diving entries are expected for the
Oregon state meet to be held at the
Multnomah Amateur Athletic Club
January 18. The University of Ore
gon has a number of swimming cham
pions who are expected to enter the
Eastern sporting wi iters are giving
the Multnomah Amateur Athletic Club
women fancy divers considerable space
in their columns. The announced in
tention of the Winged M Club sending
their best men and women divers and
swimmers on a tour of the country has
made a big hit in the East and an
nouncement of complete plans and
itinerary is being awaited.

When "Smokey" Harris heard they
were suing the Ico. Palace bulldms for
a city landmark he had a smile on his
face that wouldn't come off until he
had to laugh 10 get rid of it.
Isn't It tbe Truth f
If Banny "Vonson." president of the
American League, forfeits all the fran
chises where gambling predominates in
his league he'll have to rely on the con
stitution an! by-laws for his salary.
Speaking of u(s.
