BEAVERS HIT SMC
n co m
Semi-Pros Defeat Portland
in Nine Innings, 9-2.
RECRUIT TWIRLERS USED
As Kesult of Exhibition Several
Kid Hurlers Will Bo Buying
Own Beefsteak Today.
BY Z,. H. GREGORY.
PASADENA, Cal., March 13. (Spe
cial.) The Beavers ran Into an old
fashioned Armenian massacre today
when they tried conclusions at
Brookside park with the Cox-Haae
team, semi-pro champions of southern
California and composed mostly of
eialwart brothers of Dick Cox. The
score after nine painful innings was
9 to 2 for the Cox-Haas boys, who
weren't impressed in the least by the
fact that the Beavers had just de
feated the Chicago Cubs.
The real reason for the heavy
elaugrhter, however, was that Ken
worthy and Tom Turner decided to
see if some of the club's kid hurlers
could pitch as handily as they can
eat. As a result of the exhibition,
several of them will be buying their
own beefsteak and onions tomorrow.
Banks, a right-hander brought all
the way from Detroit by Suds Suther
land, was the first victim. He got
Ty for two innings but in the third
four walks, two fielder's choices and
a pair of crashing hits gave Cox
Haas six -runs and ended the free
meal snap for Mr. Banks.
Ellbon Looks Pretty Good.
Russ Ellison, the' University of
California youth, was nicked for two
runs in three more innings, but
looked pretty good despite that.
Jacobs, who followed him, was lucky
to escape with his life and one run,
lor the first two Cox-Haas boys up
hit him for a single and a triple.
"VVahlberg, a huge and gawky left
hander, pitched in the eighth and
somehow managed to get away with
a shutout, though it took a couple of
eensational fielding plays to do it
The Beavers were lost against the
eouthpaw slants of Al Miller, a west
frn leaguer who pitched for Cox
Haas. They chased one around in the
first on Gressett's triple and Sargent's
slash down the third base line and
got another in the sixth, but that was
all. Dick Cox played right field and
shortstop for his brothers and Ernie
Haas, utility outfielder for Los An
treies, was in left field. Two more
Cox brothers were held in reserve.
Thorpe Get In Llnrnp.
Jim Thorpe got here late last night
and though not in the lineup today,
tried his hand at pinch-hitting In the
seventh. He was robbed of a hit by
a sensational grab of his grounder by
the Cox-Haas third sacker, a youth
named McNab, whom Bill Klepper has
signed for his Tacoma Northwest
Most of the Beavers were expecting
a burly copper-colored redskin, but
Jim surprised them all by- having a
skin as white as that of a blue-blood-td
New Englander. But he came fully
up to expectations as to size. He
looks as big as the Yeon building and
his shoulders are about as broad.
When he smiles, which iS most of the
time, you could easily imagine the
Broadway bridge opening to let an
ocean liner through.
Kins; Taller Than Thorpe.
Jim is just about of a size with Rip
King and of the same build. Rip has
en inch on him in height but Thorpe
makes up for that in depth of chest
and broadness of shoulders. He is
supposed to be the greatest athlete
that ever lived and he looks the part

TIGERS DEFEAT CrfBS, 9 TO 6
All Seven Pitchers Working for
Both Teams Are Wild.
LOS ANGELES, March 12. (Spe
cial.) Following in the footsteps of
the Portland - Beavers, Bill Esaick's
Vernon club licked the Chicago Cubs
at Washington park this afternoon,
9 to 6. All seven p'itchers worked by
both teams were wilder than the
March wind and rain which halted
the exhibition game here yesterday.
Big Bill James, Gilder, Love and
Shellenback took turns for the Tigers
and between them gave the alleged
big leaguers but three base hits as
against nine collected by the Tigers.
Not a single one of the nine clouts
figured in the scoring, however. It
was an uiusual game in that respect.
James. Gilder and Shellenback are
certain to be Vernon regulars. Love
is fighting for a berth, but today did
not look much better than at any

worst year of his career. Score:

against practice of any kind by the
semi-pro ball clubs. However, the
boys are all eager to get out and in
a short time all of the clubs will have
strenuous practice sessions.
Forty trapshooters braved a driving
rain and a high wind to try their luck
at the traps yesterday at Everdlng
park. The attraction was the second
grand merchandise shoot' of the sea
son staged by the Portland Gun club.
Twenty-six prizes were awarded to
the high guns. Shooters were divided
into three classes according to ability.
Four prizes went to class A, four to
class B, and six to class C. In addi

class A with a score of 48 out of a
possible 50. Keller, who is one of the
best trapshots in Oregon, has been
neglecting the game somewhat of
late, but his absence did not seem to
dull his eye.

one, two, three in all shoots In which
he participates, finished second yes
terday, shattering 45 out of 50. Jim
Seavey, former state champion, and

L OS ANGELES, March 12. (Spe
cial.) Jack Doyle's fight arena
in Vernon is a big wooden barn
of a place that seats about 4000 per
sons when, filled to capacity. And It
had very nearly a capacity crowd the
night last week that I saw the boxing
card there as a guest of Harry M.
Grayson, formerly on The Oregonian.
now sports editor of the Los Angeles
Alongside the arena and 'n the
same building with it la Jack Doyle's
saloon. Nothing sold there stronger
than near-beer now, though a fet
years ago it was Vernon's brag that
this was the biggest-liquor saloon in
the world. That didn't apply so much
to its size as to the amount of re
freshment served, for Erickson's old
place at Second and Burnside streets
in Portland was considerably larger
In area. But Erickson's in its palm
iest days was a mere trickle of mois
ture compared to the volume of
liquids that tradition says went over
the bar In Jack Doyle's place.
Los Angeles proper had voted dry,
while Vernon, though a part of the
city, remained wet under local option.
Jack Doyle's was the central spring
of this oasis. They say that when
business was most.' brisk 42 bar
tenders were kept on the jump ring

When prohibition finally extended
to Vernon, too. Jack Doyle went in
for fight promoting. -He has been a
popular promoter and his cards draw
big houses because he makes the
boys fight for their money. If
pugilist stalls he gets little comfort
from Jack Doyle.
Consequently, they don't try to
stall. At the card I saw there were
seven bouts of four rounds each and
every bout was a slaughter. There
was one knockout and blood was
spilled by the bucketfull in nearly
every scrap. The crowd, educated to
fast milling and short fights, howled
viciously if the battling lulled for an

PHILADELPHIA, March 12. Sailor

a technical knockout over Frankie

He weighed. 138 pounds; Callahan
Indeed. California has become so
accustomed to four-round fights with
the boys hitting ud a whirlwind pace
all the waythat it's doubtful if the
10-round game would be popular now,
even were it possible to get tne ap
proval of the voters to a ten-round
fight law. It was explained to me
that .mere legislative enactment
would not be enough, and that any
such law would have to go before the
voters. The feeling here seems to be
that the four-round game is doing so
well that It would be foolish not to
let well enough alone, so there Is
little likelihood of intensive effort to
revise the law.
The cards here are called smokers
and really are, for you can smoke all
you please. At Jack Doyle's place,
overhead paddle-fans carry off the
excess haze so that the arena really
is about as clear of tobacco smoke as
if the Portland prohibition against
smoking were in effect.
We saw many women among tne
spectators, especially in the ringside
seats. The women didn't smoke but
were not a bit bashful in their root
ing. One pretty girl across the ring
from where I sat she really would
have been beautiful if she had used
her rouge pot just a little more spar
ingly seemed to have a particular
motive for wanting Johnny Trambitls
stretched cold In his four-roundei
with Monk Fowler, the same Monk
who fought Joe Gorman ten rounds in
Portland about a year ago.
'Kill him. Monk! Kill him!" she
urged again and again. Monk did his
best in the first three rounds and
had Johnny bleeding from half a
dozen cuts. This seemed to pleace
the girl greatly. Then in the fourth
Johnny came back and pounded Monk
for a draw. How she booed when the
judges called it even!
Another girl seemed more Inter
ested in the scandal columns of the
Examiner than in the fights. She
couldn't tear herself away from the
latest Hollywood expose and exclus
ive theory as to who killed William
Desmond Taylor. Just once she dis
played interest. That was when the
judges decided that another fight had
been a draw, too.. She looked up from
her paper long enough to cry, "Boo!
Boo!" and then buried herself in an
entrancing divorce case. '
All decisions here are made by
judges and the crowd doesn't differ
much from a Portland fight audience
in expressing disapproval if the
favorite loses. It is more vociferous,
if anything. - boys and girls seem
to enjoy bloody fights above any
But speaking of blood, I saw one
Innovation that was unique. If a
fighter is badly battered and bleed
ing freely, the referee grabs a sponge
from one-of the corners and ever and
anon through the round he dabs the
bleeding mauler in the face with the
sponge and swabs him clean. It has
the advantage o' keeping both boys
fresh looking-. Portland and jvmwau
kie might copy it to advantage, for
nothing makes a fifrht appear so
brutal as for one boxer to be stream
insr with blood, perhaps from a really
insignificant cut so far as damage Is
concerned, while with every blow the
other slugger spatters gore about the
Boxing here is not under super
vision of a commission, but the
private promoters like Jack Doyle
are about as strict as a commission
would be. The seconds nuisance Is
curbed at Jack Doyle's place by hav
ing a couple of official towel swing
ers, garbed in white duck, and then
providing two seats at the end of
each front ringside section for the
handlers. They must sit in these
seats between rounds, and while there
is some coaching it doesn't get very
loud. They handle the water care
fully and don't splash it over the cus
tomers. The ring ropes and posts are neatly
wrapped in black tape and the ring
platform is whitewashed. The ring
side customers have individual up
holstered seats. The dollar general
admission boys are seated back under
the rafters of the arena, but they get
a good view from wherever they are.
The ring canvas must be scrubbed
after every smoker for it is white and
clean. All around It under the ropes
Is a raised rim-padding so that a boy
falling out of the ring won't be
bumped hard. And the rosin nui
sance, bad both at Portland and Mil
waukie, is entirely eliminated.
Instead of throwing lumps of rosin
all over the ring and then stepping
on it and crushing it and rubbing it
in, whence It is blown Into the faces
of the ringside patrons by every
towel-swinger, a little heap of pow
dered rosin is dumped in one of the
neutral corners before the card
starts. Then as each boxer comes
into the ring, he rubs his shoes in
this powdered rosin. That's all there
is to it. Not a boy slipped in one of
the seven bouts of the evening.

HOW TO START THE GAME WRONG.
PARIS, March 12. (By the Associ
ated Press.) The Olympic games for
1924 have again become a subject of
controversy and many friends of ath
letics fear they may not be held in
France owing to the city of Paris
voting only 1,000,000 francs instead of
the promised 10,000,000, and the mu
nicipal council's Insistence that the
games be held in Pershing stadium, to
which the Olympic committee abso
lutely refuses to consent on th
ground that it is an inadequate field
for such sports. The French Olympi
committee favored the Pare dee
Princes, near the Bois de Boulogne.
Los Angeles Is being considered by
athletes as a likely place to hold th
games should they not be held in
Ultimatum Is Given.
Before the council's vote of yester
day, M. Autrand, prefect of the de
partment of the Seine, read a lette
from Count' Clary, president of th
French 01m,Pic executive committee
stating expLiclty that unless the Pare
des Princes site were permitted, th
committee would withdraw entirely
leaving the 1924 games in the hand
of the international Olympic commit
tee. After the meeting Count Clary
declared he would follow out the dec
laration In his letter.
The city's appropriation of 1,000.000
francs, which was approved by a vote
of 32 to 7, came as a disappointmen
to French sportsmen. The small ap
propriation is attributed to the city
unfavorable financial position, but
one of the councillors remarked that
inasmuch as 10,000,000 francs had
never been voted for men of science
there seemed to be no reason why
that amount should be voted for ath
Los Angeles Is Mentioned.
The leaders of the Olympic commit
tee fear the effect of the principal
ity's action upon parliament, in which
a bill for the appropriation or zo.oou,
000 francs for the purpose of the
games has not yet been passed, bu
merely deposited on the speaker's
desk, and some o.f the members may
take the stand that parliament prom
ised 20,000,000 francs on condition
that the city contribute 10,000,000 ad
Should there be failure to appropri
ate a sufficient amount, there is dan
ger that the games will be held out
side of France. Los Angeles has al
ready been mentioned among the
sporting fraternity as one of the
likely places in that event.
Count Clary will call on President
Millerand and Prsmler Poincare to
morrow, then a meeting of th"
French Olympic committee will be
convened for Tuesday or Wednesday
to decide whether the games will be
held in France, depending on what
encouragement is received from the
French government in the way of
