HARPER OR DAVIS
Champion Is Challenged to
Fight Winner of Go.
BATTLE WOULD BE HERE
BEAR-COUGAR GAME IS ONLY
COAST CONFERENCE CONTEST
All Other Elevens Today Are Resting for Coming Big Games or
Playing Outside the Select Circle.
Matchmaker Hansen Sends Tele
gram to New King Asking
Consideration of Bout.
It's just possible that the winner
of the Travie Davis-Bobby Harper
bout at the armory Thursday night
will, get a chance to fight Mickey
Walker. the new welterweight
champion of the world, in a Port
After reading reports yesterday
of the Jack Britton-Walker fight,
in which Walker lifted the, welter
weight crown from Britton on a 15
round decision !n New York, Match
maker Hansen of the Portland com
mission shot a telegram to Walker
offering a scrap against the winner
of the Davis-Harper argument here.
Davis had one chance at the wel
terweight title when it was held by
Jack Britton. When the champion
made his trip to the northwest two
years ago Davis was one of the
coast boys who fought him. The
bout was held in Seattle and was a
six-round draw, with newspaper re
ports giving Davis the better of it.
Shade Drops Champion.
On the same trip Britton fought
Dave Shade for the Milwaukie com
mission and Shade early in the fight
dropped him for the count of nine.
Britton, after the Davis fight,
made the remark that there were
four welterweights in. the country
he figured as real topnotchers of
championship caliber, and that some
day one of the quartet would win
his title. Britton was right. .One
of the four, Mickey Walker, 'now
hoids the title. The other three
were Travie Davis, Dave .Shade and
Davis r raised Highly.
Discussing the merits of the four
boys, Britton said Davis was one
of the best prospects he had seen,
and that the Seattle youth was
wasting his time on the coast. He
should go east, declared Britton,
where he could get a whack at the
big purses and work himself up in
the welter division.
Matchmaker Hansen's offer to
Walker is quite attractive and un
less the new champion already is
booked for a string of bouts in the
east, he cannot pass it over with
out some consideration.
Hansen's telegram yesterday to
Champion Walker follows:
"Kindly advise immediately if you
vould consider meeting winner of
Davis-Harper bout in Portland, ten
rounds. Fifty per cent gross re
ceipts Figure would draw between
$15,000 and $20,000.

NLY one Pacific coast confer

it does can have no bearing on the
championship race. For anybody
who cares to know, Stanford is
booked against Nevada.
The dope at Berkeley, of course,
favors California against Washing

to make it a battle, however. Cali
fornia didn't show with exceptional
"brilliance against Southern Califor

scrimmage to only 159 for Wash

outkicked the Pullman booter, and
in the pinch he threw a couple of

CHICAGO, Nov. 3. Lou Criger,
whom oldtimers will remember, is
ready to tell the world that senti

Sox manager, of Criger's predica

Umpire Dineen and the latter car
ried it to Ban Johnson, American
league chief. Johnson immediately
put the matter before his clubown

of the eight to attend to the needs
of the oldtimer.
Johnson's first step was to com

The league chief learned that Cy

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. S. (Spe

and would like to do so without
uncovering all of California's plays

said, and still affirms, that Cali

Seattle, a week from Saturday
against Washington, and he knows
that keen-eyed Washington scouts
will be watching California tomor
row. Washington rests that day.
But the Bears cannot afford to
take a chance with Washington
State. That team is too strong for
that. It may be that the Bears
will have to go at top speed for the
whole game, and in that case it will
