MR. FLEISCHER IS LAUDED
REAPPOINTMENT TO GAME AND
FISH BOARD APPROVED.
Official Is Said to Possess Rare
Combination of Business Man
and Trnc Sportsman.

I. N. Fleischner as a member of the
state fish and game commission, an
nounced in The Oregonian Sunday, was

fisli and same commission.
enthusiastically received by Portland
anglers and Nimrods. Mr. Fleischner is
probably better known than any other
sportsman in the state.
When the fish and game commission
was reorganized, four years ago, the
late Governor Withycombe appointed
Mr. Fleischner for the four-year term,
and his appointment on Saturday is
for a like period. As a commissioner he
has been active in the interests of
sportsmen. For years he has frequented
the Deschutes, Rogue, McKenzie and
Nehalem rivers and the smaller streams
closer to Portland. He is a lover of
the outdoors and never misses an op
portunlty to learn more of it.
Mr. Fleischner has visited all the
hatcheries of the department, has noted
their needs, and has led in the move
ment for supplying those things which
increase the efficiency and output of
During the four years which he has
been a commissioner he has fathered.
among other things, the Butte creek
hatchery in Jackson county. This has
developed from an idea to a hatchery
with a capacity of 1,000.000 trout
year. He fathered the improvement of
the McKenzie hatchery in Lane county.
By damming a portion of the river be
tween an island and the mainland nat
ural ponds have been formed which
will hold many million fry until they
are of sufficient age to withstand the
enemies in the swifter waters.
The Nehalem river hatchery is an
other feature of the work of Ur.
of a business man and a sportsman. His !
level-headed administration of fish and
game commission affairs has brought
the tavoraoie comment or both the an
glers and the commercial fishing inter
ests. There are five members of the
fish and game commission. Governor
Olcott is chairman of the board and
Frank M. Warren, Portland: Charles F.
Stone, Klamath Falls, and Marion Jack,
Pendleton, are the other members.
The work of Mr. Fleischner has, to a
large extent, been one of the reasons
why Oregon continues to be the great
outdoor state of the union, with wild
game and gamey fish in abundance.

DEMPSEY PICKED TO FLOOR
Jim Coffroth Argues That Champion's Easy Life Will Weaken His
BY HARRY B. SMITH.
AN FRANCISCO, Cal., May Za.
(Special.) Had a chat with Jim
Coffroth and Eddie Graney the
other afternoon regarding their views
on the Dempsey-Willard fight. They
differ somewhat as to the outcome.
Coffroth Is outspoken in his opinion
that Dempsey is going to win.
Coffroth argues that "W'illard has
virtually been out of the boxing game
for four years. He points to the fact
that "Willard has had but one light
since he defeated Jack Johnson for the
championship and that was an easy
one. Coffroth, takins the Johnson-
Jeffries match as a criterion, doesn't
think that Jess can come back. He
says that Wiliara will una ii a. nara
task to get down to training after a
spell of easy living and he affirms that
he wouldn't be surprised should there
come a knockout inside the 12 rounds.
Graney is far more conservative,
though in the long run he is inclined
to agree with Sunshine Jim. Graney
says that if Willard would only tie his
right hand to his back ana rest con
tent with using a left he wouldn't have
much trouble winning the decision. But
after making that statement, Graney is
inclined to agree with most ioiks tnat
"Willard will persist in swinging his
right, which means he will be open for
the Dempsey punch.
And since Dempsey can punch, as a
lot of folks will testify, he Is always
to be rated as a dangerous chap.
Thomas S. Mulvey had a letter yes
terday from Tad. Tad saw the Ritchie
Leonard fight in San Francisco and
also the Leonard-Ritchie fight in
So what he has to Bay is of consider
able Interest. First he remarks that
Benny Leonard was a mighty tired lad
at the end of the eight rounds and that
it was a good thing for the champion
Ritchie was entirely exhausted: else
there might have been a different end
ing to the story.
Tad doesn't believe Leonard would
have been in any condition to have put
away a fellow half way strong. Also,
he says Ritchie wasn't anywhere near
ly as good a boy as the night that
4-round fight was staged in San Fran
cisco. But of course when the "ifs" and

the Waverley Country club Saturday
afternoon. Mr. Leiter's gross for the
five holes selected by J. Martin Wat

not a fistic sensation, either. It was

After the. supper, the visitors were
gathered in' the galleries to watch the
club show in the tank. Suddenly there
came a bevy of females, who thrust
aside wraps, advanced to the diving
board and dove into the water.
Club members gasped in astonish
ment while the visitors applauded. The
membership knew it was a sacred tra
dition of the Winged O club that women
are not permitted the tank, for an ex
hibition or otherwise.
There was a scurrying to and fro of
the directors and of the swimming
committee. The girls were ordered out
of the tank and waved out of the club,
not even being permitted to change
their costumes for dry clothes.
And the next day came an investiga
It transpired that the girls had been
brought to a hotel across the street
from the O. C, where they donned their
swimming suits and then put on wraps
Kscorted by members they entered the
club unannounced and were ready for
their little stunt.
Speedy action followed and six ath
letic members of the Winged O found
themselves homeless. First and fore
most was Ernest M. Smith, a swimmer
of some renown and a reserve captain
in the army. Ernie, as his friends
know him, was the principal actor In
securing hotel accommodations for the
girls and in seeing to it that they were
allowed in the club.
Jim Reselure, also an old-time mem
ber of the Winged O, was implicated to
the extent of being expelled and there
were four others not quite so promi
nent. It has shaken Bohemia to the
limit and has been the occasion for
more chatter than has happened in a
month of Sundays.

"The perplexities and conditions of

worse, even as Paul said they would in
the last days (2 Tim. 3:13). and, although
strong efforts are being made by
strong men of God to stem the tide of
wickedness, yet there seems to be no
cnange for the better but rather for
the worse. The second coming of
Christ is the world's only hope, as it
has ever been the hope of the people
of God In all ages and so recorded by
apostles and prophets of the Bible.
"The Scriptures present strong evi

human race through sin miKht be

That day will be ushered in by the
personal presence of the Saviour, for
God promised that it would be the seed

bruise the serpent's head (Gen. 3:15).

to the disciples as they stood tazingr
at the literal ascension of their lord
and master. They declared to these
men: "This same Jesus, which Is taken
up from you into heaven, shall so co.tse
in like manner as ye have seen hint go
into heaven" (Acts 1:11).
"In the first advent of Christ the
prophets in minute detail told of VU
arrival and of his life while here.
Micah named the birthplace (Micah
5:2). Isaiah prophesied that he wouX"i
be born of a virgin (Isa. 7:14). and
also the place which would witness
the opening up of his ministry (Is.i.
9:1-1). This same prophet told of his
miracles (Isa. 23:1S. 61:1. 42:7) and ths

mankind and recorded the words will
which he closed his earthly life upon
tho cross (Ps. 16:10. 69:21. 21:22). All
of these words were- fulfilled to the
letter literally and not spiritually.
Christ therefore must come again, and
that very soon, to fulfill the 1500
prophecies of bis second advent, whujh
have been given in Just as minute de
tail as these which we have mentioned.
"Christ must come again in order to
bring the promised reward to tho be
liever. Many are under the impres
sion that this reward Is meted out at
tho time of death, but the Word
teaches us that the reward of the
righteous, both living and dead, will
be given when Jesus comes again to
this world (1 Thess. 4:16. 17: Rev.
22:12: 2 Tim. 4:7. S: 2 Pet. 5:4). This
is the great hope of the believer who
is called by death, for without it there
would be no life beyond the grave
(1 Cor. 15:18. 19. 51. D6).
"Looking again we iray find another
great reason why Christ must come
again, in the fact that in the present
generation, which is the last, we have
found in our past studies of the
prophecies of Revelation that there
will be formed in the near future a
great international union of church and
state. This union will result In great
oppression to God's true commandment
keeping people, and will enforce upon
them under the penalty of death the
spurious Sabbath (Rev. 13:15), which
the devil has caused to be very popu
lar In the world. This oppression is
spoken of in Dan. 12:1 as a great time
of trouble such as never was since
there was a nation, and the prophecy
is made in this same connection that
at that time the people of God would
be delivered, and that there would be a
resurrection from tho dead, thus bring
ing our minds to the second coming of
Christ again. Christ then must come
RSain to deliver his people and to save
those who by tho power of Jesus Christ
in the lite are keeping the command
ments of God and the faith of Jesus."
Evangelist Dickson announced that
the lecture to be given next Sunday
night would end the special series of
meetings which have been held for the
past few months on account of the
opening of the great Seventh - day
