A comparison of Waiter Johnson, the
greatest right-hand pitcher in the
American League, and Vean Gregg, ex
PortlanderJ who is rated as the might

a natural advantage over Gregg. John

A long arm aids a pitcher and few
short arm heavers have great speed.
Gregg Is one and one-quarter Inches
taller than Johnson, but has Ave Inches
less reach 67 Inches against 72. Gregg
Is six feet two Inches tall and John
son six feet and three-quarters of an

Elmer Strlcklett, the former Brook
lyn pitcher, has written from Stockton
to a Brooklyn friend predicting that an
outlaw league will be flourishing in
California next year.
"He intimates that the Pacific Coast
people are dissatisfied with existing
conditions and will withdraw fiom Na
tional protection In 1913," says the
Brooklyn Eagle: Strlcklett probably re
ferred to the outlaw threats made by
Cosst League heads prior to the Amer

't The coming of Frank Gotch. the
world's champion wrestler, to give an
exhibition In Portland on November 1
while on his tour of the globe, will do
much to revive this wholesome sport In
In athletic ability, courage. Judgment

that has come Into disrepute In many
sections where amateurish matchmak

served as herculean handicaps.
While we heap laudation upon Gotch,
however, we should not be too severe
with his recent opponent, Hacken
schmldt. There Isn't any question about
Hack's ability as a grappler. He has
appeared before millions of people and
met the best In the business.
But the Russian's style is not catch-as-catch-can
and his mistake consisted
in his trying for the world's title at
this style. He has. always been a

Hack's mistake, as Willlan Muldoon
said the day after the Chicago bout,
rested In his leading his friends and
admirers to believe that he was an
expert at catch-as-catch-can wrestling.

Trainer Declares Outlook for Season
Is Good Frank Has Chance to
" Compete in Stockholm
Wrestling will be revived at the
Multnomah Club tomorrow night when
Edward E. O'Conneli. who has Instruct
ed the Portland men In the grappling
art for the past two years, takea the
first Fall class in tow. All of last
year's stars are expected to grace the
mat again and a corps of fresh re
cruits will be out for the hauling, maul
ing and pulling exercises.
O'Conneli has Just returned from an
extended visit to the East, and after
the long rest Is prepared to start a
season of strenuous work for the can
didates for the lnter-club. Pacific
Northwest Athletic Association, Ama
teur Athletic Union and Olympic strug
gles. "Multnomah certainly will have one
wrestling representative in the Olympic
games. If form Is any indication of
what is going to happen," said O'Con
neli yesterday. "If no accidents occur
in the meantime. I'm almost positive
that Edgar Frank will be among those
sailing for Stockholm next year. Frank
is by far the best wrestler we have,
and should find little difficulty winning
the Amateur Athletic Union 125-pound
Strong- Hopes Entertained.
Much Is expected of O. E. Franike,
Amateur Athletic Union 135-pound
champion, who looms up brightly In .
Multnomah's prospects. Duff Fabre,
145-pounder; McCarthy and Vinson. IBS
pounds; Stevens, 115 pounds, and Hol
den. heavyweight, are expected to do
a great deal for the Multnomah Club in
the lnterlub struggles.
O'Conneli has distinct views concern
ing the toe hold, made famous fy
Champion Gotch. This was the gentle
manipulation by which the Iowa farm
er won his supreme honors against
Hackenschmldt in their first clash, and
was an Important factor In their second
"Most of the hue and cry raised
against the toe hold .comes from those
who know little about the art of wrest
ling," said O'Conneli. "A good wrest
ler of the catch-as-catch-can style has
little or no trouble evading the toe
hold. Therefore, its elimination is un- t
It might not bo amiss to Insert here,
for the benefit . of those who have
never been initiated Into the mysteries
of toe holds and strangle holds, grape

and leg holds, that the gentle bone

The general opinion prevails that
when a toe bold is taken, the holder
either wins or his antagonist's senior
member of his pedal propeller is
snapped. Not so. The damage is all
done to the knee. The hold is taken
on the toes and the leg wrenched in
such a manner that tho knee Is broken,
pulled out of Joint or turned inside out.
Othorwiso no injury Is done.
"Had 'Hack' been a master of the
American stylo of grappling, .Gotch
probably would never have secured the
deadly hold," continued the Multnomah
instructor. "It's as easy to evade when .

"Tho Ootch-nacK riasco causoa no
end of comment throughout the East.
The opinion was unanimous among ex
perts that Gotch is the Russian's mas

of his quickness and superior knowl
edge of tho game."
The toe hold discussion brought
reminiscences of O'Connell's first visit
to Portland, over three years ago. He
was scheduled to wrestle "Strangler"
Smith and his opponent insisted that
the strangle hold, which is barred hi
police company, be permissible.
"He simply wanted a rough old go.'
said O'Conneli. "I was willing. Ths
toe hold was new then and few knew
anything about it. I had little diffi
culty In getting him in the vice-like
grip, but before I even had a chance to
put on the pressure he screamed for
mercy and declared I was trying to ktlj
him. Once was enough for Strangler.

an Invitation to visit an old pupil In

accepted, and when he arrived there
found none other than Jack Munroe

O'Conneli staked out three claim in ,
the heart of the district and before
leaving had an offer to sell. He In
tends to hold them until further de
