the Multnomah Amateur Athletic club
for holding its portion of the events
of the annual Pacific northwest as
sociation swimming and diving cham-
nlnnahin, TkU J i i .
at the last meeting of the board of
directors. This is date that Jack
Cody, swimming Instructor of the
club, and Prank E. Watkins. chair
man of acquatics. have had In mind
for some time.
The events will be divided between
the local club and the Crystal Pool of
Seattle. Just what events will go to
the Winged M club and what will
be held in the Puget sound city is not
known. Instructor Cody has asked
for the 100 and the 50-yard dashes and
the 100-yard breast stroke for women,
and the 50, 509, 150-yard backstroke
and fancy diving for men. If these
are awarded to the local club It will
mean that the 100 and 220-yard races,
breast stroke and plunge for distance
will go to Seattle. In addition the
local programme of water events for
the night of the championships will
include a 50 and 100-yard race for
juniors under 16 and a junior relay
race. 1 -
The P. X. A. indoor championships

in the northwest and always brings
out a classy field of entries. Word
comes from the north that regardless
of what events are held in Seattle and
Portland, respectively, the Puget
sound city will be well represented at
Cody, of the local club, has had his
charges working out for some time in
anticipation of the meet, and while
he does not believe that his swimmers
will have a walk-away, they are go
ing to make a strong fight to carry
off the majority of places.
Bus Douglas has been making an
exceptionally good showing in the
workouts and it would not be sur
prising if the former member of the
iriter-allied swimming team would
lower some of the P. N. A. records.
Micky Wilscy. another of the Winged
M stars, is rapidly rounding into
shape after a sick spell and will be
in,, good condition for the meet. Doug

HYE TAKES TWO
FALLS WITHIN HOUR
Ted Thye, middleweight wrestling
champion of the world, had too much
class for Sailor Hoffman. 170-pounder
of New York, and threw the latter
twice within an hour in their match
at the Olympic gymnasium hall last
Ight before a packed house of en
thusiastic wrestling fans and fanettes.
A goodly gathering of the - fairer sex
was in attendance at the show, which
was replete with action from start to
finish. Thye did not really throw
Hoffman on the two occasions, the
latter being forced to quit both times
because of punishing holds that Thye
had which would have Inflicted bodily
injury if he had not given up.
Champion Takes First Fall.
The champion won the first fall in
an even 25 minutes when he clamped
wrist lock on Hoffman. It was
the selfsame wrist-lock hold with
which Thve won the middleweight
championship of'theworld from Wal-
er Miller In their titular match at tne
Heilig theater last year. On that oc
casion Miller refused to give up and
as the result had his shoulder torn
out of place and was unable to come
back for the finish. It also laid him
up for nearly six months. The sailor
from New York played the sale game
last night and when he saw what
Thye had on him gave up after vainly
trying to break one of the most terri
ble and grueling holds in the grap
Thye registered the secona tan in
0 minutes with a toe hold, another
bone crusher if the man who is in it
does not give up. Fans who recall
the famous Gotch-Hackenschmldt
match will remember that It was with
the toe hold that Frank made the
Russian lion quit. The toe hold, head
lock, strangle hold, hammerlock and,
wrist lock are those in the wrestler's
line which mean a broken bono or
torn ligament if forced.
Hoffman Use "Weight.
Hoffman gave Thye a good tussle
while it lasted and used his weight
advantage in good stead. He had Ted
in several tight holes ouring me
contest and only the champion's great
all-round ability pulled him through
at times. The match was an inter
esting one and not a minute of stali

Thye was in to win and win quick if
he could and HoIIman was on tne mat
with the same idea in mind.
Two- good preliminaries were
staged. Roy Lesher, well-known local
wrestler, undertook to throw two men
a half hour and succeeded, tossing
Art Loders in 9 minutes and Young
Farmer Burns in 6 minutes. Lesher,
who is a formidable matman. was
originally billed to -meet Basanta
Singh, the v Hindu, in a 30-mlnute
match, but the latter was unaoie to
fulfill his engagement when he threw
his knee cap out yesterday.
Lesher threw Loders wltn a reverse
