The biggest ' naval display of
authority the Northwest has ever seen
will take place in two weeks when 300
staff officers of Admiral Phil Metschan.
Jr.'s, go to Astoria to take command of
that city and the annual regatta.
The regatta is set for July 2, 3 and 4.
Plans for the entertainment of the
staff and non-commissioned combatants
in the festivities are approaching a
climax. For one thing:, it will be a
musical festival. Camobell's American
band will go down with the Admiral's
The Elks granted permission to their
band to go down and the musical or
ganization will decide this week.
The regatta committee at Astoria
has made a few changes in the course
and otter racing details. The course
for the short boat races, the 16, 20 and
26-foot classes, has been reduced to
' three miles, the cut being made in the
rough water at the lower end. The
boats will circle the course three times.
The free-for-all will again be run
over the nve-mile course and six laps
will constitute the race. The other
events will be practically the same as
in former years.
W. H. Curtis, starter for many years,
will again do duty on the bridge of
the Government patrol boat.

Coaches and Captains Believe
Portland's Chances in Meet
on River Are Good.
DEFENDERS ABOUT CHOSEN
Many Seats AVill Be Occupied by
Men Who Held Them Last Year.
Allen, of Seniors, Shifts Five
Back and Forth in Trials.
BY RALPH J. BTAEHLX
The North Pacific Association's an
nual regatta, which takes place on the
Willamette River this year, still is al
most a month away, but the crews
which will defend Portland against the
Vancouver Rowing Club and the crews
of the James Bay Athletic Club, Vic
toria, have about been decided upon.
The regatta will take place July 11 and
As to Portland's chances of victory,
coaches, captains and followers of the
sport think they never were better.
Last year Portland's crews came out
very good in the north iu a fight
against hard luck and lack of knowl
edge of the water conditions.
Many seats in , Junior and senior
boats will be occupied by the same
men that held them last year, though
the senior boat -is the one in which the
present order of arrangement is most
Five Meet Belna; Shifted.
Five good men are - being shifted
back and forth by Captain Allen, of
the Beniors. Each night Allen has been
seating his crew just a little different,
and who of the five will course over
the Willamette will not be known until
Allen has given them each another
trial all around. . ,
He himself Is shifting about. He is
rowing bow and has been alternating?
with Dyrlund In an endeavor to get the
pull of the boat properly balanced.
Dyrlund also has been rowing three,
which changes him back, but keeps
him on the same side.
Hanson is the stroke' oar of the big
boat from the last arrangement, and
Stevens Is pulling number two.
The other crews are well defined
and,while there may be changes, they
are not expected. The lightweight
four will consist of Mathena, stroke;
Webster. 3; Yettick, 2, and Alderman,
bow. These men average the boat at
Junior Four t ncbaaged.
The junior four. Incidentally the
same as the victorious one of last year,
is composed of: Fabre. stroke; Bates,
3; Sammons, 2, and McDonald, bow.
Crew Captain A. Pfaender again will
row the singles for the club. E. O.
Qloss, ex-champlon, attempted a
"come-back" on June 10, but it was
unsuccessful, and Pfaender will do all
the work in the lonesome boat.
Dave G. Cooper will represent the
juniors in the singles. J. Haverly, the
Cornell oarsman who returned a week
ago, will row senior doubles with Fred
G. G. Wylde-and Dave Cooper will
row the Junior double. t
Flra Competition July &
Portland's first competition with
outside crews for this year takes place
July 2, 8 and 4, when the Portland
Rowinsr Club sends five men to take
part In the Coeur d'Alene regatta. Port
land went there last year ana cieanea
The crew which will go is composed
of Lewellyn, bow; Prideaux, 2; Hoo
huli. 3. and George McFaul. stroke.
These same men will take care of the
canoe races, so the Rowing ciud again
expects to bring most of the Idaho
trophies to Portland.
R. C. Hart is again after the rowers.
He has coaehed them for many years,
but was a little late getting oui wnn
them this year. Now he has them drill
ing on the starts and spurts, and the
crews already show marked improve
ment since he took hold. This week he
Is going to have them rowing over a
mile and a half for speed. These will,
be the first trials of the season.

Kearna brouaht back with him from
New York a rather Interesting storv
of the way the Ritchie-Welsh metrh
was finally planned.
-It was the worst mixed up affair
that I ever sew.-' eald Keerns, "end
but for the fact thet Hilly Uibeon, the
New York promoter, stepped In ami
took a hand, no such match would
have been arranaed. Ritchie hed sent
Tnlirv to New York to represent him
but Thlery was snaking absolutely n
headway. Emll was quibbling over
U for his berth on the train and Con
sldlne had thrown up his hsnde. Then
Gibson took a hand. He persuaded the
promoters t" nut up 15.00 to guar

"Ulkewlse they are to deposit with

sum of 110.000 to represent the moving
picture end of the deal, so fsr es the

seem to be consldtred a strong card
In the East. They say that he Is a
wonderful gymnasium performer, but
Infer that In the rlna hla heart la
none too good. Pachey M.-Farlend
says that of While and be has a good
line on tha Jewish boy."
Kearns also Intlmatae that Ritchie
has practically promised Cibeon to give
him the call on hie service when he
returns from England, of cours. with
th proviso that Willie still holds
forth a the champion. He eays that
Gibson told Ritchie he was getting ab
solutely nothing for hie ecicee and
wanted to know what he could ea-
P"I11 do anything In the world for
you." Is the anew Ritchie la said te
