Come From Bear State Tor Crack
at 'Winged M Court Men.
Portland handball fans will get l
chance to see one of the best hand
ball players in the country in action
tomorrow night at the Multnomah

Athletic club, who with George Kla
witer, one of the other top-notcb rs
of the Los Angeles club, will meet
two crack Winged M players in
duoble match tomorrow night before
the start of the big club smoker.
Ranft and . Klawiter arrived in
Portland yesterday and have already
started limbering up on the Mult
nomah club courts. The local courts
are larger than those in the southern
city and the three days' practice on
them will give the southern players
a chance to accustom themselves to
the larger alleys.
Those who have seen Ranft play
say that he is a demon on the courts
and in Los Angeles they have nick
named him "Murder Ball Bill." Op
ponents for the visiting players have
not yet been named but will be se
lected today, according to Stacy Ham-
ilton, chairman of handball at the
Winged M institution. Kay vvatKtns,
the old ' club champion, undoubtedly
will be one of the players, as he h"as
been rounding into fine form of late.
Two singles matches between Mult
nomah club players and the Los An
geles stars are scheduled for Friday,
November 2S. at 7:30 P. M.
Considerable interest is being
shown at the club in the handball
events, as it is the Sirst inter-club
affair in the handball line which ever
has been staged here, and the Los
Angeles fans also will no doubt be
vatching the outcome with as much
merest as is shown here.

in his report. This criticism was not
made as any reflection on the judges
but on the present system of having
the contests decided by boards of
judges who are local in the cities
in which the meets are held.
It is not a situation that is peculiar
to the Multnomah club or to Portland,
but is general throughout the coun
try jrind has been the cause of dissat
isfaction everywhere. It is very dif-
ncuit ior local judges, who are par
tisan in their feelings, to be entirely
fair in their awards, however good
their intentions. There have been
many examples of this.
The Los Angeles Athletic club
staged the national fancy diving for
women in 1917. Mrs. Connie Meyer
represented Multnomah at the meet.
She was continually heckled through
out the contest and after the award.
ng of the championshin to Aileen
Allen of the Los Angeles club she
was refused the privilege to see the
score sheets, they having been de
stroyed. The following year Multnomah was
awarded the national meet, and Mrs.
Allen did not appear, the reason being
given that she was ill. The papers of
the afternoon following the meet here i
carried articles about her winning the j
southern California diving title on
the very -afternoon of the meet here.
It puzzled many why she would rather
compete in a sectional meet than a
national one, being at that time title
holder. It later developed that she
was afraid to appear here, fearind
that she would be meted out the treat
ment accorded by the southerners to
The national fancy diving cham
pionships for women were held at
Detroit this year. That charges and
counter-charges were filed in this
meet very few locally are aware. Ap
pearing in the San Francisco Exam
iner of Tuesday, April 15, is an ar
ticle which says in part: "More com

Thelira Payne was declared the win

Miss Bartlett (of New York) was the
actual winner. I am led to believe
that Miss Payne was favored because
she came from so far away to take
part. I picked Miss Bartlett as the
winner and was never so surprised
in my life as when the results were
Another incident is the far western
diving meet in which Mrs. Meyer and
Helen Hicks represented Multnomah
on July 4 at Neptune Beach. Cal
which has not been settled yet, al
though time and time again Chair
man Hosford has been in correspond
ence with the southerners. Aileen Al
len "of Los Angeles was declared win
ner. Mrs. Meyer brought home copies
of the diving sheets and on checking
them over Hosford found a mistake of
2 points, making Mrs. Meyer winner
by 1.6 points instead of loser by
point. No medals or explanations
have yet come from the south.
The only way of avoiding the
repetition of the affair in regard to
the judges Is for the Amateur Athletic
union officials of the sections to jour
ney to and be judges at the national
title events. This will avoid all con
troversy and clean up the diving
game, which on account of the mut
terings following a meet is slowly
A San Francisco critic by wire this
morning sent the following in answer
to a telegram asking if he thought
the judging of diving was fair ac
cording to present methods:
"Diving judges Pacific coast inef
ficient. Would not say directly un
fair, but policy directs appointment
neutral judges when local men com
pete." O. J. Hosford, chairman of the swim
ming committee at the Multnomah
Amateur Athletic club, takes excep
tion to the writer's article in The Ore
gonian Monday on Saturday night's
diving meet in that he does not think
that there was any deliberate favor
itism shown to the Winged M entries
by the judges.
Mr. Hosford had the following to
say in a letter to the sporting editor:
"While Mr. Eddas may be honest in
his conviction, I do not believe he
gave careful consideration to the tech
nicalities of the dives. As to the fair
ness of the judges, they were the best
that could be obtained in the city, all
of them having had experience in
judging former meets, and I believe

"Mr. Eddas claims that Patterson
of the Olympic club was by far the
best diver in the meet. All of the
Judges show that Patterson was the
best diver, but failed absolutely on
one of his dives, a two-and-a-half
forward. If Patterson had scored
even Ave on this dive he would have
won the meet. Pinkston of San Diego
is a capable diver, but showed lack
of training: and failed to show form
on most or nis aimcuit civea m nui
straightening out before entering the
water. On a one-and-a-half with a
half twist dive, he struck the board
with his feet and failed absolutely to
make any twist whatever. Field of
Spokane showed lack of confidence in
his dives and did not perform any
thing like he did in practice. Kuehn
of Multncmah showed more snap in
execution and better form on entry
to the water than Field.
"While most of the judges were
members of the Multnomah club, it is
owing to the difficulty in securing
others who know anything about div
ing. One of the Judges, Leon Fabre
Jr., one of the best divers turned out
in the northwest, gave Louis Kuehn
first place by a wider margin than any
