If one were to deliberate on the
boxers Landlord has put away in
his career of 18 years of boxinff it
would fill several columns. The Bos
ton colored battler began knocking
them out at 14 yeans of age, when he
sturtcd his ring career, and is still
putting them away with his bone

record book gives .out the fact that
I-angford is lit years old. which
would hardly make him an old man

AVrirht of Seattle Loses to Former
Denver Boy Wlien Bout
Kmls at Speed.
ABERDEEN, Wash., Oct. 4. CSpe
cial.) Frankie Murphy, Portland wel
ter, won a decision over Billy Wright
of Seattle in the six-round main event
or tonight's ristic card presented by
Harry Druxman. matchmaker for the
Aberdeen Athletic club. The two wel
ters started off at a slow pace, but
along about' the fifth round opened
up with some real stuff and made up
for their early hesitation.
Murphy was the aggressor nn to the
last round, w hen Wright began a little
rignt crossing and slowed the former
Denver battler up. Frankie rallied in
the last few seconds of the battle and
rocked Wright with a barrage of
swings. The Seattle mixer claimed a
foul In the fifth round, but his claim
was not recognized and Murphy kept
plugging away, coming within an ace
of stowing the former coast champion
away. If Murphy had not led in the
first five rounds there would have
been no fight. The Portlander kept on
rne go every minute trying to get
Wright to step out and take a chance,
but Billy couldn't see it that way.
A Hie Taylor, Portland bantam, won
a Bix-round decision over Eddie Moore
of Seattle in one of the greatest fights
ever witnessed here. The bout was a
hamnier-and-tonsrs affair from start
to finish, with Taylor uncorking a line
of punches that fans here seldom see.
The boxing followers .cheered the two
little battlers from round to round,
giving them a tremendous ovation at
the cud of each. Moore was the clev
erer, but couldn't stand the gaff.
Jack Mirenta, Tacoma welterweight,
knocked out Soldier Morton of Aber
deen in the third round of a scheduled
four-round scrap. It was Mirenta's
first fight and he made good. Horton
went down three times and the third
time stayed for the count.
Don Mclntyre of Aberdeen won a
technical knockout over Billy Pringle
of Aberdeen in the curtain raiser.
Referee Joe Waterman stopped the
out in the second round to save
Pringle from punishment.

were Glenn Walkle.y, winner of the
meet last year at Eugene; Guy Koepp,
a member of last year's frosh track
team; Napoleon ("Speed") Palatier
of the same aggregation and several
other new men. One trouble with the
university track team has always
been that the men are not In proper
condition in the spring. It is planned
this year to have all track men out at
least three times a week so that they
will be In shape when the regular
training starts. During the good
weather the men will work in the

the work will be principally the de
