Within the next few days Leo
Cross, Portland light-heavyweight
boxer, will have the opportunity to
jump from a now' practically obscure
position to the top rung: on the heavy,
weight pugilistic ladder on the Pa
cific coast. He will have the chance
to mount the first few steps tonight
In Seattle when he tangles six rounds
against Frank Farmer, light-heavyweight
champion of the Pacific coast.'
Cross left for Seattle yesterday ac
companied by his manager, Bobby
Evans, and will go Into the fray on
three days' notice. Cross has been
training, however, and will not be
caught out of shape. It will be his
third bout since his return from over
seas, having fought a six and a ten
round draw with Frank Kendall.
While In France he earned the dis
tinction of winning a decision over
Bob Martin, the A. E. F. heavyweight
champion, who is clamoring for a
titular match with Jack Dempsey,
heavyweight champion of the world.
Cross is not a heavyweight by any
means, and should not scale a pound
over 170 in tonight's battle.
"Young" Hector was originally
scheduled to meet Farmer, but played
a lame duck at the last minute, forc
ing Dan Salt to make a substitution.
Next week Cross is billed to battle
six rounds against Ole Anderson in
Aberdeen. Anderson recently shaded

has been in town several days and is
working out daily.

Plan Calls for 21 Post-Season
Games in South Players to
Draw Pay or Share Cut.
Judge W. W. McCredie, owner of
the Portland baseball club, has an
idea of his own in regard to playing
the minor league championship series
in 1920.
McCredie would not only bring the
American association pennant winners
out to the coast, but also the Interna
tional flag catchers. The plan, which
is a very feasible one, follows:
in the first place, after the 1920
coast league race comes to an end
and the championship has been de
cided, tne lour teams placing in the
first division would be lined up and
Piay a three weeks series of 21
games, each team playing seven
games, the contests to be played off
in ban Francisco and Los Angeles.
Of course, before this would be
done the pennant winner In the
American association and the Inter
national league would be invited to
play. If both accepted, the two lower
teams, or rather the third and fourth
teams, in 'the Pacific coast league
would be dropped.
Thus the two high coast league
teams and the two other class AA
gonfalon winners would hook up in
tne zi -game series. In case only the
American association champions ac
cepted the invitation, then .the three
high coast league teams would be in
cluded. Or still again, if the powers
that be In the American association
wished it McCredie's plan would per
mit them to bring the first and
second-place team and the two high
clubs in the coast league would com
plete the lineup.
Anway it could be worked out Mc
Credie would essentially have four
teams In the post-season minor league
championship series tangling in a 21
game stretch. If none of the other
minor league teams did not care to
ccept, then the first division coast
league teams as originally stated
could battle it out among themselves
for -1 games, as the coast league
are the challengers.
The Judge would have the entire
gate receipts pooled and the "kale"
divided up between the four teams
competing, according to the way they
finished for instance, 40 per cent to
the title winners, 30 per cent to the
next best, 20 per cent to the third
team and 10 per cent to the fourth
club in the post-season cffair. All
percentages would, of course, be de
ducted after the expense of running
the series had been paid.
As to the players McCredie would
give tlsem the option of playing for
the same salary as they got through
the season or let them waive their
salary and play for an appropriate
cut of the receipts, which would have
to be decided by them before the
start of the games.
Judge McCredie is not certain that
the Beavers will finis-h first next sea
son, but he Is certain in his own mind
that they will not drop below second
President Hickey of the American
association wants - to sign up an
agreement to send his pennant win
ners out to the coast for the next ten
years. Just what the International
league heads might have to say on
the subject is not known.

Question Raised ""by Request for
Cheap Bulk Rates to East.
SALEM. Or.. Oct. 1. (Special.)
Will the Unrestricted shipment of
bulk apples to eastern states be in
jurious to Oregon's apple reputation?
That is the question asked a score of
growers' and dealers' association in
a letter sent out today by the public
service commission. The query Is in
spired by the request of a Portland
shipper for a bulk rate of $1.06 a
hundred to St. Joseph, Mo., which is
the same as the box rate.
It is set forth In the letter that,
about a year ago, the railroads did
not look on a similar proposal with
favor, because of probable waste and
damage to the fruit and resultant
loss and annoyance to the companies.
It appears that four carloads of bulk
apples have been shipped, but for
what purpose is not known. The com
mission further asks if all cull apples
in Oregon and Washington are taken
