STARS TO BE PICKED
FOR NATIONAL MEET
Philbrook to Consult Records
to JiCfse Northwest Men.
COACH RECEIVES RATINGS
Movement Begun to Take Holding of
ly-ack and field Events From
Hands of Philadelphians.
Incorporated in a letter written by
George Philbrook, chairman of outdoot,
athletics at the Multnomah Amateur
Athletic club, and sent .yesterday to
Frederick W. Rubien, secretary of the
Amateur Athletic union, are the marks
made by the best athletes in the north
vest this season.
It is probable that six or eight track
and field stars of this section of the
country will represent the Pacific
northwest association at the national
track and field championHhips sched
uled for Philadelphia September 5. 6
and 7. As soon as Chairman Philbrook
ascertains how much expense Tnoney
will be allotted for the Portland dele
gation he will decide on how many and
who will make the jaunt. Those who
go will most likely leave here late this
month so as to be on the ground a few
days before being put to the acid test.
Among the northwest delegation will
most likely be the three famous pole
valters Ralph Spearow and Sam Bellah
of the Multnomah Amateur Athletic
club and Jenne, the Washington state
Secretary Rubien will use the records
forwarded by Chairman Philbrook to
determine just how many northwest
men are rated to make the trip.
Although the dates have been set
for the National A. A. T7. meet the site
of the carnival in Philadelphia is yet
to be settled. Franklin field, the "scene
of many great athletic events, was an
nounced some time ago as the place,
before the consent was gained from
the college authorities to stage ,the
After extensive publicity had been
sent out by the A. A. U., stating that
Franklin field would be the holding
place. President Sam Dallas of the
American Amateur Athletic Union was
notified that the field would not be
available for the meet.
Mr. Dallas wes let down easy- by the
college people, who informed him that
it was the intention to sow grass seed
and the holding of the games would
destroy the growth of the grass. Presi
dent Dallas has since been on a quiet
hunt in an endeavor to find some suit
able location around Philadelphia.
Last week an announcement ap
peared that Lehigh field, Behlehem,
Pa., would be the "promised land." At
the headquarters of the A. A. U. it was
denied that the games would be held
on that field. Some of those among
the powers that be in the east have
been after the A. A. U. heads to take
the meet out of the hands of the
Phlladelphians and stage it at the
Weequahic track, Newark, N. J.

Although it was announced that
there will be no mara tlion run on the
programme at the International Olympic
games scheduled for 1320 In Antwerp,
American t rack managers will not
eliminate this popular event from their

contests held in years was the recent

FLOCK OF BATTLERS "
ON DEMPSEY'S TRAIL
Champ Has Lot of Fairly Soft
Picking in Sight.
ARMY MAY YIELD GOOD BOY
Captain Rob Roper Now Down in
Mexico City' Taking Lessons of
When "William Harrison Dempsey
gets through piling up the family
fortune and feathering the nest of one
Jack Kearns by his -appearances under
the big top, before the footlights and
on the screen he will have, plenty of
opportunity to be a fighting cham
pion. Would-be champs are springing
up in all parts of the globe like mush
rooms overnight, and a few of them
are entitled to consideration.
yillie Meehan, Harry Greb. Billy
Miske, "Battling" Levinsky and a flocK
of others are clamoring for a chance
at the title, and Dempsey could spend
a few profitable months of disposing
of one after the other. Then there is
the winner of the Carpentier-Beckett
go across the pond, who will in all
probability be JacK's next opponent
and as soft as the rest.
But. the army is the foundation of
hope of the majority of boxing fans,
who ure as eager now to see Dempsey
whipped as they .were to see him stop
Willard. They love variety, and after
all that is what eeps the game going.
Several so-called promising heavy
weights have been uncovered in the
ranks of Uncle .Sam's fighters, and
there is one chance in X thousand that
one of them may be the man to knock;
Dempsey from under his crown.
Army Has Flock of Hopefuls.
Three of the crop of embryo soldier
pugilists are now engaging the at
tention of boxing authorities in the
east. They are Bob Martin, Eddie
Stout and Jack Burke. Martin won a
lot of bouts in the army via the knock
out route and is credited with the
A. E. F. title. He has height, weight,
reach and punch, but lacks experience
and has yet to show that he can as
similate punishment. Dempsey has a
habit of feeding his opponents in the
early rounds of all of his bouts. And
another thing Portland's own middle
weight. Leo Cross, won a pretty easy
six-round decision over Martin in
France not so very long ago. Martin
might do. but if he were to enter the
ring tomorrow against Dempsey the
betting would likely be 10 to 1 or more
on the champion.
A gentleman by the name of Ike
Bernstein Is touting Eddie Stout and
he has touted Kddie so loudly that
many of theQhicago fans are begin
ning to sit up and take notice of him.
Stout is 20 years old and weighs 235
pounds. But that is about all that can
be said for him aside from the fact
that he won a few bouts while in the
aviation service at Fort Ethan Allen.
Vt. Bernstein hooked on to him when
he saw Eddie put away three fellows
in a street fight with a punch apiece.
Larney Lichenstein of Chicago has
Jack Burke in tow. Burke is 22 years
old. stands about six feet and weighs
nearly 200 pounds. He Is said to have
won 30 fights, including a bout with
Terry Keller. Burke has & bunch of
admirers, who like his style and who
think that he has a chance with Demp
sey, provided he is properly handled.
Then again there is Captain Bob
Roper, whom Jack Johnson and
Charley Cutler are grooming for the
title in Mexico' City. Roper is the
American amateur champion and if
he has a fighting heart Dempsey might
have something to fear from him. He
has fought always because he loved to
fight. He is 26 years old, weighs 208
pounds, stands six feet one inch and
has a reach of 78 Vz inches, which is
a half an inch greater than Dempsey's.
Charley Cutler and Jack Johnson have
been working hard with Roper and
expect to make him 'a champion. Before
entering the war he was a physical
exponent in Chicago. He enlisted, won
a commissien as a captain and served
as physical instructor in army camps.
He was honorably discharged from the
service four months ago and left for
Mexico City immediately.
Dick O'Brien and Fred Fulton are
both possibilities. O'Brien who is
Biddy Bishop's young protege, has had
25 fights, winning 21 of them by
knockouts. Fred Fulton will tackle a
few setups in Paris and try to get
back into the -good graces of the fans.
FOREIGN UPRISING IS TOLD
Oversea Fighter Passenger on Foma
XEW YORK. r-The story of an uprising-

such as occurred in American villages

Dr. Allgood, who had the chair of
science at the College of Assiut. was
one of 400 foreigners who held off
5000 Fellaheens and Senyussi Arabians
in a siege lasting three days.
"There had been trouble brewing
ever since the deposing1 of the Khe
dive." he said, "and an attack was not
unexpected. The great mistake made
by the natives, however, was the cut
ting of the wires between Assiut and
Cairo. This was virtually a signal to
the British forces at the capital and
at Alexandria that something was
wing down our way.
"On March 20 an autpost" rider came
in with a report that Senyussi Ara

railroad tracks had been torn up. AVe

but we learned that the leading band
of marauders were the Fellaheens. the
low Arab class. We all got together
in a little garrison protected with a
stockade and were determined to give
the enemy our best resistance. We had
a hundred faithful troops, but we were
greatly outnumbered. They tried many
times to get close enough to the gar
rison to set fire to it, but always were
repulsed by machine gun fire, which
proved to be effective.
"With the wires down it was impos
sible to communicate our plight or our
immediate needs to army headquarters
in Cairo, and our greatest fear was
that our ammunition, which was. run
ning low, would be exhausted before
help arrived. If the natives once got
the upper hand there would have been

to kill themselves rather than en

SOLID SOUTH ATTACKED
Auti-Prohtbltionlsts to Demand En
forcement of 14th Amendment.
N'S'W YORK. The National Associa
tion Opposed to Prohibition announced
ast night that the keynote sounded by
uongwsaman neu uen nastceu would
become a national issue. Congressman
Haskell in his address declared that he
would fight for as rigid as enforce
ment of the 14th and 15th amendments
to the constitution as the drys would
for enforcement of the bone-dry ISth.
The 14th amendment provides in
"No state shall make or enforce any
law which shall abridge the privileges
or immunities of the citizens of the
United States, nor shall any state de
prive any person of life, liberty or
property without due process of law,
nor deny to any person within its juris
diction equal protection of the laws.
"Representatives shall be appor
tioned among the several states ac
cording to their respective numbers,
counting the' whole number of persons
in each stare, including Indians not
"But, when the right to vote at any
election for the choice of electors for
president and vice-president of the
United States, representatives in con
gress, the executive and judicial offi
cers of a state, or the members of the
legislature thereof, is denied to any
male members of such state being 21
years of age and citizens of the United
States or in any way abridge, except
for participation in rebellion of any
crime, the basis of representation
therein shall be reduced in the propor
tion which the number of such male
citizens shall bear to the whole num
ber of male citizens, 21 years of age,
in such state."
The association's statement says in
"Had it not been for the votes of the
senators and congressmen from the so
called 'Solid . South' the 18th amend
ment would never have become a part
of the constitution of vthe United
"Congressman Haskell Relieves that
if one section of the country can im
pose upon every state in tne union the
enforcement of a 'bone-dry' constituT
tional amendment, then that particular
section ought to have the benefit of an
equally drastic enforcement of. an
amendment which has not recently
been tnforced and never will be ln
forced if the states south of Mason
and Dixon's line can prevent it."

Tells of Terror Experienced.
LOS ANGELES, Cal. How the San
Salvador earthquake of April 28 partly
demolished the - national palace and
"rocked a solid concrete building like
a leaf in the wind" was told in a letter
received here by Mrs. J. W. Marshall
from her cousin, Mrs. C. L. Curtis, who
was in San Salvador when the tremblrr
"This was the worst earthquake in
San Salvador in 40 years, wrote Mrs.
Curtis. "The volcano -that caused the
trouble in 1917 was not to blame this
"There was a lake ten miles away,
from which the disturbance radiates as
a center, and this city, being so near,
gets about all it can stand.
The first shock came about 1 o'clock
in the morning, when most persons
were asleep. Many were caught by
plaster falling on their beds. Others
were buried under the falling walls.
"The electric lights were instantly
"I awoke in terror and cried out to
my husband. The solid concrete build
ing, in which I now sit, rocked from
north to south like a leaf in the wind,
and all the time there was a terrifying

"Shock followed shock, although di
minishing in intensity each time.
"Our place faces the front of the
national palace, from which great
blocks of marble, which had ornamented
the balconies of the second story, were
thrown down, chipping great pieces

VON MACKENSEN PRISONER
Marshal Guarded by French Colonial
Troops on Estate at Futak.
BELGRADE. The exact where
abouts of von Mackensen. the German
field marshal, has for a time been a
mystery. It was rumored some weeks
ago at Salonica that he would be
guarded there. While at Novi-Sad I
learned authoritatively that until Jan
uary 4 the German marshal was kept
at the town of Budafok, twelve kilom
etres south of Budapest, under guard
of Moroccans. On that date be was
sent to Futak, a small town on the
banks of the Danube, twelve kilom
etres from Kovi-Sad. At Futak he has
made his residence on the large estate
belonging to Count Rudolf Kotek,
which is about one mile from the river.
Until recently he has had the freedom
of the place, and has been allowed to
hunt, fish, ride, or walk to adjacent
villages as he chose. With him at the
castle are the mtmbers of his staff
and other German officers to t"he num
ber of about 30. The prisoners have)
not had an unpleasant time.
About ten days ago, however, a plan
to attempt escape was discovered, and
as a result von Mackensen is now a
prisoner under close guard. He moves
about only in company of a Freneh
officer. The plan involved the use of
an airplane and was discovered about
the time trouble began" at Budapest.
Intercourse with the field marshal is
forbidden at this time, and an at
tempt by your correspondent to ar
range an interview was forbidden by
the chief of staff of the French army
It is said that the marshal's health,
is good and that he is in cheerful
spirits. The estate is guarded by the
Fourth Malgash Battalion, Armee
Coloniale. which consists of negroes
from Madagascar, and 200 men are de
tailed for guard duty. Responsibility
for the care and conduct of the dis
tinguished prisoner is vested in head-,
quarters at Novi-Sad.
The first telephone ever placed In a.
private English residence is still to be
seen at Marlborough house. It was
made in 1878 on board the warship
Thunderer and was subsequently set
up between the schoolroom and the
boudoir of the princess of Wales.
