of ' advertising as the result of the
inf ersectional gridiron contest, as a
parcel post package of pictures has
been sent to the Toledo papers to
show tho east some of the scenes its
champions will view while on their
trip. These include panoramas of
the Columbia highway, the Willam
ette valley and photographs of the
Oregon Agricultural college athletic
field, gymnasium, pool and build
ings. So that the public may be fullv
apprised of all the facts in the con
troversy started by Medford as to
which Oregon high school should be
permitted to play Toledo, William
H. MacMaster, principal of the Cor
vallis high school, has issued the
following succinct statement of the
"At the time of the meeting of the
board of control of the State high
school Athletic association Decem
ber 9, at Salem, Corvallis had guar
anteed 11500 to Washington high
school of Portland for a second
game with Toledo.
f- Medford Players Protested.
--'Atthls time there was a protest
before the board as to the eligibility
of some of the Medford players. For
that reason Medford could make no
arrangements for a post-season
game until after a decision on this
protest had been made. Medford's
petition to play Toledo was received
by the board of control a few min
utes prior to that of Corvallis. Upon
receipt of Medford's request permis
sion was granted for a game with
Toledo to be played about January
"When the Corvallis request for a
game with Toledo was presented the
board agreed that Corvallis should
have the game if Medford failed to
make the necessary arrangements
and Corvallis was so Informed by
Secretary Mishler of the board of
control. Although three telephone
conversations were held with Mr.
Mishler within the next seven days
regarding the status of negotiations
looking toward bringing Toledo to
play an Oregon team and Involving
the position of Corvallis as to such
a game in none of these conversa
tions did Secretary Mishler state
that Medford had exclusive right to
negotiate for a game.
Medford's Time Expires.
"On the contrary, he said last
Sunday that Corvallis should be
given the right to play the game.
"Owing to Medford's failure to
obtain the game within a reasonable
time, the permission of the board of
control passed to Corvallis. If the
board of control voted to give Med
ford unlimited time to negotiate for
the game to the exclusion of other
deserving schools within the state,
then the board exceeded its rights
as the managing authority of a
"Neither Corvallis nor Medford
has won the state championship and
neither one was entitled to nego
tiate for a game to the exclusion
of the other simply because its peti
tion may have been submitted to the
board of control a few minutes
earlier than that of the other.
Corvallis Raises Guarantee.
"After Medford began seeking the
game Washington high asked Cor
vallis to increase its $1500 guaran
tee to $2000. Corallis refused, stat
ing that it did not wish to make the
obtaining of the game a bidding
proposition. All negotiations had
been carried on up to then through
.Washington high at Portland and
-no further attempt was made to
.schedule the contest. At the end
of the week following the meeting
of the state board of control, To
ledo wired that negotiations had
fallen through and asked a guaran
.tee of $4000 to piay only one game
'on the Pacific coast. A committee
of Corvallis business men raised the
-required amount in two hours.
"placed it on deposit and Toledo's ac
ceptance of the guarantee reached
.Corvallis the night of December 16
;about 9 o clock.
"Medford claims it had exclusive
bright to negotiate for a game and
"that no other school had any right
to conduct negotiations until Medford
deslared it was through. Medford
was still trying to get other
"schools to share the expense. The
"game, or games, if Medford had
been successful, were scheduled to
"take place about three weeks after
nhe meeting of the board of con
trol. One week had elapsed. Medford
had not been able to conclude
arrangements and Scott high of To
Hledo decided to wait no longer, but
sent Corvallis a telegram stating its
guarantee had been accepted."

TO BE TRUE EAST-WEST TEST
Game May Be Better One to Watch Than Pasadena Clash for High
Schools Often Are Faster and Snappier Than Colleges.
" BY L. H. GREGORY.
THIS New Year's day football
game at Corvallis between Cor
vallis high school and Scott
high school of Toledo, O., will be
just as truly a test of the relative
merits of western and eastern foot
ball as the New Year's day intercol
legiate game at Pasadena. Wouldn't
surprise us if it were a better game
to watch. High school elevens fre
quently play faster and more snap-
pily than their big college brethren;
Scott high school has an unde 1
feated record for the season, isv
has Corvallis high. The Scott rec
ord perhaps takes in more territory,
but that will not count for much
when they line up for the fray.
Then it will be man against man
and team against team, and may
the best outfit win.
One thing about high school play
ers, if they are well coached and
confident of themselves it is easy
to hop them up for an important
encounter. And when they feel that
way they are absolutely fearless
and tinawed by big reputations.
Both teams will be hopped, for this
game and they'll play fiercely. It
ought to be a great contest to
In the last four years Corvallis

far from Portland, Corvallis high

Even the non-champion Willamette

usually good enough to give any

championship game to be played

The Portland high school faculties
appear to 'have cold feet on any kind
or post-season game perhaps with
reason, judging from what happens
whenever they take on an outside
team so we must look to Corvallis
and Medford and Salem and Eugene
to uphold the honors of the state.
Here's to them.
Gus Dorais, coach of the Gonzaga
university football team .pf Spokane,
which plays the University of West
Virginia at San Diego Christmas
day, was in Portland all day yester
day en route to San Diego to join
his players, who arrive there today.
His long stay in Portland was in
voluntary. The train from Spokane
was three hours late, Just enough to
cause him to miss connections with
the train to California.
"We take on the toughest of the
three eastern elevens that play east
versus west football games in Cali
fornia in the Christmas-New Year's
holidays," said Dorais, "so it would
be rather presumptious of me to
think we can win. The dope is all
against us, of course. But you can
bet we will do our best and I really
think the southern California prog
nosticators who are predicting a
50 to 0 trimming for us are con
siderably off the trollex.
"West Virginia has a corking
good team from all accounts. The
West Virginia players beat Pitts
burg, which plays Stanford at Palo
Alto December 30, and then Pitts-

burg turned around and won from
Penn State, which plays Southern
California at Pasadena New Year's
day. So any way you look at it, we
play the hardest customer of the
three invading elevens."
Dorais is depending a lot on his
backfteld star, Houston Stockton,
the sturdy youth who played for
Columbia here two seasons ago, then
played at St. Mary's college of Oak
land under his old coach, Ed Madi
gan, last year. Stockton is a won
derful forward passer, a great line
bucker, a good kicker and all-around
triple threat man. Moreover, he
never quits. Portland fans will re
call the thrill he gave them on Mult
nomah field earlier in the season,
when, beaten 35 to 6, in the last
quarter, he unleashed an attack that
overwhelmed Multnomah and m the
final five minutes brought the score
to 35 to 20.
But Stockton isn't the only good
player on the Gonzaga team. Gon
zaga beat Idaho late in the season,
and Bob Mathews, the Idaho coach.
paid the Gonzagans the compliment
of saying they were the best eleven
his boys had played all season and
Idaho took on Washington, Wash
ington state, Oregon and Southern
California. The Gonzaga team aver
age is close to 180 pounds.
Dorais sent 20 players to San
Diego. Here's his lineup: Left end.
Needles; left tackle, Cahoon; left
guard, Busch (captain); center, Mur
ray; right guard. Grant; right
tackle, Ashmore; right end, Fla
herty; quarter. Pecarovich; left half,
Stockton; right half, Garrity or
Bross; fullback, Skeate. Substitutes,
Sweeney, quarter; Dyckman, full
back; Hunton and Hodges, half
backs; Bones, center; Smith, guard;
Cyre, tackle, and McDonald, end.
Big Jess Willard and Ray Archer,
his manager, left Portland last
night for Tacoma, where Jess ap
pears in an exhibition bout next
Wednesday under auspices of the
American Legion. Next night he
shows at Yakima, after the New
Year at Spokane and en route east
probably will exhibit at Butte,
Mont. He and his manager and
Gene Doyle, his representative, then
will head east to meet Jack Kearns,
Jack Dempsey and Tex Rickard at
New York. January 10 to talk turkey
about a return match.
Willard is confident he will land
the match and more confident that
he will win it.
"Don't worry about my training
when wo get them pinned down to
a definite date," said the big fellow.
"I'll go through the hardest kind
of regime for four or five months
before the bout. I have been called
lazy and indifferent as to training,
and that 'has been true to some ex
tent, but this time I have the incen
tive of my life to work. I will be
in the pink when the time comes!
"I am told that I need lots of
road work, and that is true, but my
idea of road work differs somewhat
from that of some of my critics.' I
am too big a fellow to' take long
runs on the road every day. You
don't put a Percheron horse over
the road at a gallop, do you? My
idea of road work is climbing hills

best-known fight managersin the
game, once manager of Dempsey
and a former boxer himself:

President Johnson Writes to
HIT FOR COBB QUESTION
Head of Americans Complains of
Inefficient Work by Offi
cial Scorers for Teams.
CHICAGO, Dec 22. (By the As
sociated Press.) President Johnson
of the American league in a letter
tonight to President Lieib of th
New York Baseball Writers' associ
ation, after stating that baseball
official scorers in many cases are
grossly lacking in efficiency and
responsibility, adivised the baseball
writers' association to "put their
own house In order before sending
me scurrilous and unjustifiable com
plaints" on the Ty Cobb hit con
troversy. The Kew York chapter of baseball
writers' association recently adopted
and forwarded) to President Johnson
a protest against the latter's action
in discarding the box score of the
official scorer in a Detroit-Yankee
game at New York last May. In
substituting the Associated Press
box score of the game, Ty Cobb
gained one more hit, making his
1922 batting average .401.
President Johnson's letter follows:
Letter Is Quoted.
"Your letter of recent date, en
closing a clipping from some paper
of resolutions passed by the New
York chapter of the Baseball
Writers' association, was received.
I knew nothing of the controversy
over Ty Cobb's batting average un
til it was called to my attention
in the public press.
"Mr. Irwin Howe is the official
statistician of the American league.
and has filled that position for sev
eral yearsv All official scores when
received at this office, are at once
transmitted to him. When the Cobb
Incident occurred I requested a re
port and the official score of the
game of May 15. Mr. Howe had
previously made a careful investi
gation of all facts surrounding the
scoring of that day.
"The official sheet was not signed
and was plainly in error in one
other particular that tended to
make valueless the pitching records.
The Associated Press score of the
game of May 15 was accepted, with
my indorsement. You scored the
game for the Associated Press that
day and credited Cobb with a hit.
Are we to believe that you reversed
your judgment at this late date?
Official Scorers Inefficient.
"This office has no direct deal
ings with the official scorers. .They
are appointed by the clubs in the
various cities, and experience has
plainly shown that in many cases
they are lacking in efficiency and
"Extending through a period of
several years, this office has had
much difficulty in securing the of
ficial scores, and in some instances
none were received, after much
telegraphing and correspondence.
Mr. Howe, at the time, from sheer
necessity, was compelled to accept
the Associated Press accounts.
"I have clearly in mind an occur
rence of last season. The first offi
cial scorer in a certain city sent in
his reports promptly. From that
point the difficulties of this office
"Letters, telegrams and threats
failed to produce the desired scores.
The secretary of the club called at
my Chicago office one morning. I
promptly took him to task for the
17 missing scores. 'Mr. Johnson, the
original scorer, is with the club.
You will have his report within the
next 24 hours.' Weeks and months
have passed; they have not been
received. It was necessary for me
to appoint a scorer in that city. He
reported on 42 games and a check
was sent him from this office.
"To me It would seem the part of
wisdom and prudence for the base
ball writers to put their house in
order before sending me scurrilous
and unjustifiable complaints."
ffllB DRUBS I. WING
LOSER SHOWS HE IS GAME BY
I STICKING IN RING.
George Bnrns Takes Decision
From Kid Herman in Six
Danny Kramer, Los Angeles' entry
in the Portland 'featherweight tour
nament, had things all to himself
against Weldon Wing in their ten
round scrap at the armory Thursday
night. At the end of the ten rounds
there wasn't anything, for Referee
Gruman to do but raise the Los
Angeles southpaw's hand in token
of victory for he gave Wing, with
out question of doubt, the worst
beating the home boy ever took in
a Portland ring.
But at the , same time put it in
the book that the tough Albina
boxer displayed more gameness in
the fierce ten rounds than it has
been the pleasure of the fans to
witness in many a moon.
Wing was down for the full count
twice once in the second and again
in the eighth both times as a re
sult of letting his chin come in
contact with Kramer's dynamite
left mitt. There were other rounds
in which Wing was reeling around
the ring all but out on his feet, but
he stuck to it where other boxers
not so game might have gone down
and stayed down.
The first three rounds were
Kramer's by a mile. Wing was a
mark for Danny's short left, which
he planted on Wing's face or body
at wilL In the second frame in s
furious exchange Kramer clipped
Wing on the chin with his left and
the tough one went to the canvas.
He struggled up at the count of
nine and stuck out the round by
pure grit, for Kramer was trying
hard to plant him for keeps.
The fourth and fifth were the
only rounds where Wing showed to
advantage. In these sessions tie
held his opponent about even.
Again in the eighth Wing ran
into another of Kramer's crunching
left socks that traveled but a few
inches, and again he dropped for the
count. Wing, though badly 'hurt,
didn't give up. Punch groggy as he
was, he climbed to his feet and took

of it was rehearsal of signals, but
it impressed those who watched it
