iam Johnston won the Pacific states
tennis championship today by defeat
ing Clarence Griffin, his doubles part
ner. 9-7, 6-4. 5-7. 9-7.
Griffin never played a better same.
His hitting and placing were perfect
and as long as there were obstacles
to overcome he appeared to be invin
cible. He could, not however, stand
prosperity, and weakened whenever he
had Johnston in a tight place. In the
second set Griffin achieved 4-2 and.
40-15. He then threw away his lead
by serving a series of four doubles
faults. This was the turning point
of the match.
Johnston's service won him many
points and his forearm drives were
deadly in their effectiveness. It was
a.n even, hard-fought match, in which
Johnston's superior generalship proves!
the deciding factor.
In the junior singles Elmer Grif-
tin, a brother of Clarence, won his
way into the finals by defeating Frank
Winne, of Los Angeles. Roland Roberts

Los Angeles Athletic Club at Los An

stance Meyer, the Multnomah Amateur
Athletic Club diving wronder, left last
night for the South to try her skill with
the Nation's best.
Last Summer Mrs. Meyer made the
diving world take notice when she won
several titles at the Panama-Pacific
International Exposition at San Fran
cisco, Cal, She scared out her opponents
before the contests were held when she
did several sensational stunts in prac
tice, stunts that the other entries
thought were impossible.
It was through the untiring efforts
of Frank E. Watkins, one of the vet
eran members and swimming enthusi
asts of the Multnomah Club, and Phil
Patterson, chairman of the swimming
and diving committee cf the club, that
Mrs. Meyer was able to leave last night
for California. .
Definite word as to the date of the
National women's diving championships
of the A. A. U. was received yesterday
and as the next meeting of the board
of directors of the club is not until
tomorrow night, it was necessary to
act and act Quickly. Mr. watkins ana
Mr. Patterson visited the members of
the board individually and all were
heartily in favor of sending Mrs. Meyor
to represent the R inged " M institution
next Thursday night. It will receive
official sanction tomorrow night.
Ten dives are listed on the main
number of the programme at Los A
geles and all will be from a 10-foot
board. Mrs. Meyer plans on entering
every event in which she will be eligi
ble, whether they be Pacific coast
California or local championships, but
her main idea is to lead the field in
the National titles. She will remain in
California until next week.

Day; Several One-Day Tour
. namcnts Are Planned.
Two hundred registered targets have
been placed on the programme of th
"Old Policy" trapshootlng tournamen
of the Portland Gun Club at Us
Everding Park traps, near Jenns Sta
tion, for Monday. July 10. A. W. Strow
ger, president of the club, has divided 1
them into 10 20-bird races, and the
money will be divided 4030-20-10 un
der the jackrabbit system.
Practice day tor the shoot will be
Sunday, July 9. and five 20-bird con
tests are on the programme, starting
at 9 o'clock in the morning. Entrance
fee for targets only on July 10 will be
t. while $2 will cover the targets only
on practice day.
Under the jackrabbit system. $2.40
wil be charged for entrance in each
20-bird race on Monday to those who
contemplate shooting for money. The
i.4u lor 2 cents for each target and 10
cents for the purse on each bluerock.
For every target broken 10 cents will
be refunded, and the sum created from
the 10-cent targets which are lost, to
gether with the added money, is divided
among the high guns pn each event.
40-30-20-10. Ten dollars will be added
money on each event.
Tt is the desire of almost every trap
shooter in the country to get into the
2000-or-more-target class, but here on
the Pacific Coast it is with difficulty
that this is attained. Thi3 is one of
the big reasons why the Old Policy
shoot has been scheduled by the Port
land Gun Club July 10.
Several one-day tournevs have been
billed by gun clubs in the vicinity of
fortiana to help the blue rock smash
ers of Oregon and Washington in se
curing the coveted mark. James K.
Simpson, president of the Stevenson,
Wash., Gun Club, has received notifica
tion that the Interstate Association
scheduled an "Old Policy" gathering at
Stevenson. Wash., but no definite date
has been set as yet. In all probability
tne programme will call for 200 regis
tered mud saucers.
H. R. Everding. ex-president of the
Portland Gun Club, is fast getting into
conaition lor another campaign at the
traps. He was operated on last month
at the Good Samaritan Hospital, and at
present he is at Shipherd s Springs,
Carson, Wash. He will return to Port
land in time to take in the July 10
affair at the Everding Park traps of
the local clurj.
Frank C. Riehl. one of the most dodu-
lar professionals of the Northwest, who
hails from Tacoma, Wash., is sure that
me recora atter.nance at the annua
conclave of the Pacific Indians next
month at Tacoma, Wash., will be
broken to smithereens. Five days of
trapshooting are placed in the pro
gramme from July. IS through July 22.
At least three squads of Portlanders
are expected to- make the northern
Astoria. Oregon City and St. Helens
all have enthusiastic trapshooting gun
clubs and efforts will be made to have
each one secure a registered shoot
under the "Old Policy" plan.
The annual Pacific Coast handicap,
slated for the Everding Park traps in
September, already is creating interest.
A. W. Strowger. president of the Port
land Gun Club, has received inquiries
from as far south as San Diego. Cal..
and 25 shooters are expocted from all
parts of the Bear State.
The shoot comes after the Grand
American Handicap at St. Louis.

Ernest Adams, former interscholas

present holder of the championship in
singles and with George Roberts, Re
publican nominee for District Attorney,
he holds the doubles championship. If
Roberts wins the singles this year, the
silver trophy offered three years ago
will become his permanent property
Unless some outside star enters, how

only serious opponent, Boudinot Con
