Challenge at 'Welterweight
AMio Is Coming to Portland.
Joe Eagan, the Boston boxer' who
tangles with Alex Trambitas at the
armory next Friday night, didn't care
to make weight for Alex, which prac
tically amounts to a confession that
he can't do it, but he contradicts this
by the statement that he would be
glad to make 150 pounds for Jack
Britton, welterweight champion of
the world.

McCarthy back far. However, the

Oregon Agricultural College, Washington State and University of
Oregon Are Quietly at Work on Football Counter-alliance.
THE so-called "Big Three" football
alliance between California, Stan
ford and the University of Wash
ington is likely to have a rival. Ore
gon Agricultural college, Washington
State college and the University of
Oregon, It has become known, are
quietly at work on a plan for a counter-alliance
or entente among them
selves. If this new alliance Is formed, and
it seems highly probable that it will
be formed, it will have as its basis
of policy the severance of athletic
relations with the ' University of
Washington In all lines of sport as
long as that university remains in
the "Big Three."
There isn't the same resentment
against " California and Stanford
among the northwest colleges as
against Washington" over the forma
tion of the "Big Three"; a sort of
inner circle within the Pacific coast
conference. Whether rightly or
wrongly, they feel that Washington
has been inspired mainly by snobbish
motives and a determination to run
things in Joining the "Big Three
which she was largely Instrumental
in forming, and that her action is i
betrayal of the northwest.
So behind the negotiations now un
der way for the O. A. C.-W. S. C
University of Oregon alliance, which
may satirically be called the "Little
Three." Is the theory that two can
play at the exclusiveness game. By
agreeing not to meet Washington in
any line of sport while she is tied up
with the "Big Three," they figure
they can do her a lot more damage
than she can do them.
They point out that Washington,
despite her size and asplratons for a
place in the California sun, is still In
the Pacific northwest, always will
be in the Pacific northwest and has
interests identical with those of the
other Pacific northwest colleges, de
spite all the "Big Threes" that can
ever be formed. They think it may
help Washington to realize this if
they leave her severely to herself
while she is playing around with the
California colleges.
So, if the "Little Three" is formed,
its members will be free to schedule
games with the California colleges,
Just as at present, but will be under
ironbound agreement not to arrange
football games, baseball games, bas
ketball games, track meets, boxing
and wrestling meets, tennis matches
or sport contests of any kind with
Washington. ' Even intercollegiate
chess matches with Washington would
be barred if by any stretch of imagi
nation chess may be considered an
athletic sport.
They believe that before this has
gone very far Washington win Degin
to see the light. She can't play all
her football games with the Califor
nia teams, that's a cinch. Under her
"Big Three" football schedule she
meets one California team in Seattle
and one In California each season.
That leaves her with several other
football games to schedule, and while
she can bring on probablj one east
ern team a year, she can't fill all her
extra dates from the other side of
the Rockies.
In short, her natural opponents are
Oregon, O. A. C. and Washington
State, and there's no getting away
from it. With these colleges all giv
ing her the cold and Icy shoulder she
unquestionably would be rather hard
put to fix up a real football schedule.
And that would be Just a small part
of it. For every one football game,
four to half a dozen games have to
be scheduled in baseball and basket
ball. A baseball or basketball trip to
California would be a pretty costly
thing, too, without any chance to
pick up a little coin en route by
games at Eugene and Corvallis.
So this proposed "Little Three"
could make matters decidedly Inter-1
esting for Washington, and still be in '
Scores of Sujrgestions Are Received
Bearing Upon Every Anglo
of Gridiron Game.
That the open season now is on for
suggestions to change football rules
Is apparent from the scores of Ideas
advanced by experts and near-experts
In all sections. The football rules
committee wII meet before very long.
This stimulus has set brains to work
ing. Some of the suggestions are
worth consideration, but the mass
of them might as well be placed in
the discard at once.
Speaking generally, there Is de
cided sentiment against tinkering
with the rules. There can be no doubt
as to the popularity of the game as
now played. Those who would let j
well enough alone have considerable
justification in pointing to this pop-1
clover Itself. Its members could al
ways manage to fill out their own
schedule between themselves, with a
California game or so added and
some of the smaller northwestern
schools filling out. Oregon, O. A. C.
andWashington State can do that be
cause there are three of them In the
northwest, all natural opponents.
while Washington is geographically
at a decided disadvantage in hook
ing up with a "Big Three" that has
two California members.
The "Big Three" looks very well on
paper, out, entirely aside from it
probable opposition by a "Little
Three," and aside also from its ceo-
grapnicai lack of balance, with one
of its members something like 1000
to 1200 miles away from the others,
it has other elements of weakness.
For example, there is Stanford. It
seems not to be generally known in
the Pacific northwest that Stanford
more and more is becoming a gradu
ate school. That is decidedly the
trend on the Palo Alto campus, and,
as this trend continues, it will be
come harder and harder for Stanford
to keep up the lick necessary to
hold up its football end of the "Big
Three' and the Pacific coast confer
ence, for graduate students are not
eligible to play In intercollegiate
At the recent meeting of the con
ference in San Francisco, Stanford
asked the conference to make gradu
ate students eligible for athletic
competition. This the conference de
cliaed to do. For a time the Stan
ford delegates were seriously con
sidering whether they should with
draw from the conference. Their at
titude was not one of resentment
but one solely of doubt as to whether
they could continue to turn . out
athletic teams up to coast conference
caliber with their under-graduate
student body rapidly dwindling an
giving place to ineligible graduate
That's something for the "Big

Back in the spring of 1894 a trim,
lithe young fellow turned out with
the track squad of the Multnoomah
Amateur Athletic club, which had
been born only a couple of years be
fore. This young fellow bgan practic
ng in the Jumps, especially in the
high Jump, though any kind of leap
ing appealed to him. Two years
later, in 1896, in a Pacific coast track
meet held in Portland he high-Jumped
6 feet 2 inches, and thereby set
coast high Jump record that endured
for 11 years. Only Horine and Bee
son have bettered it since, the present
record being 6 feet 7 inches.
That young- man, Bert Kerrigan
who shone as a Multnomah club track
athlete for many seasons, and as
quarterback and halfback on the club
football team from 1901) to 1906, was
back in Portland yesterdav, after an
absence of a good many years. He no
longer is the youngster of those days,
but neither is he as yet anywhere
near the hate and hearty age-. He is
still trim and atheltic looking, and
his looks do not belie the facts for

too. And last fall he got third place
in the high Jump in the far-western
meet in which both Horine and Bee-
son were entrants. Pretty fair for 25
years after he set the high Jump
.Kerrigan descriDes himself as a
farmer, chicken raiser and organiza
tion secretary nowadays. He owns
a farm and chicken ranch in Peta

actively engaged in keeping the name
of Petaluma on the map. Kerrigan
expects to leave Portland tonight for
ularity as their main argument
against befuddling and irritating the
players with a lot of minor changes.
It is difficult to get out of a habit,
even the habit of obeying football
rules. It will be remembered that it
used to be necessary to run the ball
back of the goal post if possible after
a touchdown was made to get a godd
position from which to kick the goal.
ine need lor tms was obviated last
year by changing the rule so that, no
matter at what point the ball crossed
the goal line, it was permissible to
try for goal from directly in front of
the posts. Notwithstanding this rule,
whenever a player crossed the goal
line he instinctively kept on going to
get behind the goal posts. The major
ity of the players did this. It s-imply
was a football habit that even a
change in the rules bad failed to

lessening the distance between the
uprights of the goal posts. The only
effect this would seem to have would
be to make a place or drop kick more

to be only that made in the pass.
Others would curtail the number of
passes that may be made in any one
quarter. Students of football gen
erally are in accord that the forward
pass is susceptible of development,
but they are equally agreed that the
greatest care must be taken in mak
ing changes not to hedge the play
about with so many complications
that both player and officials will
have more than they can do to cnow
whether a play is legitimate or foul.
Clarification of some of the exist
ing rules is considered by many quite
as important, if not more so, than
changing existing ones. A number of
muddled rules have been pointed out,
among them the rule which applies to
an incompleted pass on the fourth
down made from a point outside the
opposing 20-yard line which crosses
the goal line. In this connection two
conflicting rules are specified. Doubt
less certain changes can be made
gradually to better the game, but
followers of football urge "go slow"
as the motto.
Champion Is Interested in Boy
Wonder, but Thinks That Ther'e
Are Six Who Can Beat Him.
Jose R. Capablanca. new chess

the resignation of Dr. Emanuel Las

ditions of their first contract, but
with whom nevertheless he will play
a match for the title in Havana dur
ing January and February next, is
-back from England.
The young Cuban master had made
a special trip to Europe for the pur
pose of inducing Dr. Lasker to piay
the match, and in this he was sue
cessful, so far as obtaining his con
sent was concerned, but, on the other
hand. Lasker made conditions of i
financial nature that were not men
tioned in the bond.
In other words, the famous player.
who is now styled as ex-champion,
according to both himself and Capa
blanca, demands an advance payment
of his share of the purse of $20,000
before he leaves Europe, and another
payment before he starts to play the
match in Havana. Capablanca stated
that Senor R. Tuffin, president of one
of the biggest Cuban sugar corpora
tions, had personally written to Dr.
Lasker confirming the offer of the
purse. The champion, therefore, was
quite confident in the hope that the
match will start as scheduled. Whan
Dr. Lasker comes over he will travel
by way of New York.
Upon his arrival Capablanca was
Interviewed as to what lie thinks of
Samuel Rzeschewski, the boy wonder,
who made so sensational a debut at
West Point.
In Champion Capablanca's opinion
the little fellow is in a class just a
little below that of the international
masters. There are probably not
more than about six players in this
country who could defeat the child in
a serious match. The Cuban, expert,
however, added that the best care
must be taken of the boy lest the real
possibilities within him be retarded
before maturity. He was pleased
over the excitement the boy had cre
ated, as he recognized that this could
but help boom the game, of which he
is one of the two greatest exponents.
While in Europe Capablanca gave

four in Holland. Of 81 games played

the Aberdeen boys to break up passes
was especially noticeable. The play
ing of Fred Abel was a feature of
the playing of the Montesano team.

school girls' and boys team played
the tespectlve representatives of tho

after a spirited session, although the
home team was at no time in danger
of losing the game. Good shooting
and better passing of the local five
contributed to its winning. The visit

Aggregation Scheduled for Contest
Is Unable to Get Together;
Game Is Snappy One.
Because the Vernon hoopers could
not get together last night to play
B'nai B'rith, the Hill Military acad
emy quintet substituted. The Vernon
B'nai B'rith contest has been changed
to Thursday night of this week and
will be played on the B. H. floor.
Coach Estes brought a bunch of
fighters from the academy and they
put up a scrappy game from whistle
to whistle. Although they were
beaten, 26 to 17, the Cadets deserved
a lot of credit for their showing.
The B'nai B'rith hoopers were han
dicapped by the loss of Weiser and
Youdavitch, two of their best men.
The first half showed some close
checking on the part of both teams,
ending 12 to 5 for B'nai B'rith. It
was not until the middle of the sec
ond period that the B. B. boys showed
teamwork or shooting ability. From
then on they were not in danger.
Captain Goodrich of the Cadets was
the shining light of the contest, scor
ing 11 points. The lineup:

B NOTE that New York baa nothing:
to say in the matter of whether or
not Jack Dempsey will fight there. His
manager has settled the question by stat
ing that since the New Workers have put
a maximum limit of $15 aa a charge tor
ringside tickuts, neither the manager nor
his champion have any further luu-resl in
Sew Vork under suoii picayune remunera
tion. The great aJlny of boxing fans who
have to pay the freucht are very much In
accord with the New Vork ruling. Paying
these fellows from one to ten thousand
dollars a minute for their services is set
ting a value which borders on insanity.
