ceived little help from his Interference.

SPORT FIGURE LOST IN
BILLY JORDAN'S DEATH
Veteran Announcer's Passing Removes One of Landmarks of Old California
Boxing Game Last Days Are Passed in Comfort in Soldiers' Home.
BY HARRT B. SMITH.
SAN FRANCISCO. Cal.. Oct. 21.
(Special.) In the passing away
this week of Billy Jordan, known
to thousands of fans as the one big
fight announcer of the Golden West,
the old pugilistic game has lost another
of the landmarks which are moving out
of sight so rapidly. Jordan had been in
poor health for some time in the past
and his death was not altogether un
expected. Nevertheless there were
scores who kneW "Uncle Billy" person
ally, and other thousands who knew
him only by reputation who were sorry
to see him go.
His passing out, naturally, has not
aroused the interest that would have
been likely under .other conditions. That,
is to say with the boxing game going
great guns, there would have been
more of the "live" spirit in the senti
ment. But pugilism said its goodbyes
to the state of California & couple of
years ago, and the Journey of Jordan is
therefore hardly so noticeable.
Billy Jordan was a well-known fig
ure in California and virtually a pio
neer, for he had been a voter In this
state for more than 50 years. Born in
Boston, his exact age seems to have
been more or less a problem. To the
writer. Jordan said he was born In 1833.
To other sporting writers the date has
varied considerably, so it must be he
was between 80 and 85 years of age
when the end came.
Jordan Civil War Veteran.
With several relatives he came to
California shortly before the Civil War,
but when hostilities came the Jordans
retraced their steps. Billy was in both
the Navy and the Army during the war,
some of his relatives fighting on the
amount of interest being taken in out
door sports. A class In canoeing, com
posed of 14 upper-class girls, is now
learning the art of handling the shell
and the paddles. Miss Harriet Thom
son, in charge, requires the girls to
be able to swim before venturing out
because of the danger. No freshmen
are allowed in this class.
The recently constructed golf links
afford a splendid opportunity for this
sport and some 30 girls under Miss
Thomson are reporting.
During the physical examination
conducted under the supervision of the
entire staff and Dr. C. V. Southworth.
of Eugene, the girls are given the
privilege of choosing the outdoor sport
their physical condition will permit.

which a regular team is developed

When he was mustered out. Jordan
came to San Francisco to live. In his
early days he was a bare knuckle
fighter, although of that portion of Ills
career the veteran never had much to
say. Later he was a referee and still
later, so far as the present generation
is concerned, Jordan was an announcer.
Particularly in championship matches
I there Is always required more or less
red tape, and the sight of Billy Jordan
standing within the sauared circle, with
the champion and contender awaiting
his attention, has been decidedly im
Break at the order of the referee
and may the best man win. Let 'er go.'
That was Billy's set speech, and he
delivered it with all the feeling and
solemnity possible. He felt that his
share In these big parts amounted to
something and he made his listeners
feel about the same way.
Announcer Public Favorite.
There was hardly a fight of any im
portance but that Jordan did the an
nounclng and the fans fame to wait
for him. Autocratic In a way. there
were promoters who might have dis
pensed with his services, but tey didn't
dare to take any chances with capri
No one who was present at the last
20-round fight held In San Francisco
just before the new law went Into ef
feet will forget Jordan's announcement
that the boxing game was going out
and that ha was going out with it.
For 20 years a meat inspector in the
city, having been appointed by Gov
ernor Budd. his feet troubled him so
much that he was forced to resign. He
did go to the Soldiers' Home at Yount
vllle. but the quiet of that section
didn't agree with a man who had passed
- - - f
for team practice. Outside games are
scheduled and thus the Interest is in
creased. Probably one of the most popular
sports among the girls is tennis, which
gives the required amount of exercise
specified by the department. The
new courts that have been completed
make a total number of seven courts
available. The enrollment in this sport
numbers over 100, and two hours in
the forenoon and three in the after
noon are required by Miss Hasel Kader
to instruct the entire class each day.
The Pail outdoor classes are com
pleted by October 30 and then the work
will be conducted in the gymnasium.
Inter-class basket-ball and baseball
games are the features of the Winter
season in which the various . classes
compete for""a loving cup given by
W. Li. Hayward. of the men's depart
ment. Classes In aesthetic- dancing
and regular gymnasium work are also
so much of his life In a city, and Billy
returned to San Francisco.
Here he was taken sick and was In
serious condition until the state of af
fairs was discovered by friends. A ben
efit was arranged that netted $2000 for
Jordan, and the money was used for
his comfort during the last few months.
About four weeks ago. Jordan, de
cidedly weaker, asked friends to take
him back to the Soldiers" Home, and
he passed his remaining days as com
fortably as could be under the circum
stances. A military funeral was accorded the
old gentleman, and there were floral
pieces from all over Jhe world. Bat
tling Nelson was one of the boxing
fraternity to remember BUly, to send
message of regret and to ask that
floral piece be sent-
WUlie Ritchie and Johnny McCarthy,
who returned the first of the week
from their Gqldfield fight, have been
stirring boxing circles with' contra
dictory statements of the result of
that 10-round mill. Just after the fight
telegrams were flashed to San Fran
cisco papers in which each side claimed
a victory, and they have continued the
It all happened because of Ritchie's
Insistence there should be no decision
rendered In the event of both men be
ing on their feet at the end of the
match. Ritchie made the argument
that Inasmuch as McCarthy was doing
most of his boxing around Goldfield
he naturally would be a favorite in
that section, and the San Franciscan
didn't care to take any chances.
Accordingly, the figkters could do
their own claiming. McCarthy says
that, he scored at least one knockdown,
and possibly two, against his opponent,
while the former lightweight champion
of the world avers they were nothing
more than slips and that he was not
affected by the punches delivered.
Willie Is still in San Francisco and
has not signified when he will leave
for New York. He would like to re
main right here, but he appreciates
that If he Is to continue as a boxer
there Is nothing to be gained so far
as San Francisco is concerned.
Some day, perhaps. Ritchie will re
tire for all time. Just now he can
easily make, a good livelihood as a
fighter, and naturally wants to keep

AGGIES TAKE REST
Team Breaks Training After
WHITMAN GAME IS NEXT
Pipal's Eleven W ill Be Handicapped
in Washington and Oregon
Struggles, as Freshmen
Players Are Ineligible.
OREGON AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE.
Corvallls. Oct. 21. (Special. With
the first leg o'f a heavy schedule a
matter of history, the Oregon Aggie
football team will take a rest after the
antl-cllmax reached in the University
of Nebraska contest, and the players
will be allowed to break training for
a day or two before beginning prep
aration for the classic with the Uni
versity of Oregon. -
The game against the Cornhuskers
was more than an antl-cllmax. It
marked the last of the contests in
which freshmen will play the full four
quarters. On November 4 Coach Plpal
will send his moleskin artists against
the Whitman aggregation on tho Ag
gie field, and then come the games
with the University of Oregon and the
University of Washington. In neither
of which freshmen are eligible.
In the Whitman mix the Aggie men
tor will use for a part of the time at
least the men who must be depended
upon to win from the Doble and Bei
dek elevens, as this Is the only game
that will give the "Gray Fox" an op
portunity to size up the smoothness of
the eleven players who will work in
this duo of games.
The freshmen eligibility rule hits
the Aggies a body blow, and one from
which the wiseacres predict no re
covery. The one-year ruling will bar
GUI. Lodell. Webster and Hlatt. ends;
) alHtr and Bush, guards: Reardon.
quarterback, and "Bev" Anderson and
Conn, halfbacks. Seven of these nine
players are regulars, and Coach Plpal
will be sorely pressed to fill their
shoes from msmbers of the other
asses. It can't be done.
In the backfield there will be avail
able Willey and Hubbard, halfbacks:
Bixby and Newman, fullbacks, and
Morgan, quarter. The speed and clever
ness of "Bev" Anderson and Conn and
the generalship of Reardon will be
sorely missed, and. while the men who
will fill their positions arc hard and
willing workers, they have not the
ability of those whom they will suc-
eed. If they had they would have
been playing regularly.
The line shapes up better. For the
guard positions left vacant by Busch
and slker there are Albert Ander
son, Williams and Wilson, all three of
whom are good men. Captain Rissett
and Moist can be depended upon to
take care of the extremities in good
style; the tackles will remain the
same, and Sclph will remain at center.
The speed of the Plpal machine will
be slowed up materially without add
ing any strength in any other depart
ment of the game, which makes the
prospect ahead most dismal from the
Aggie fans" point of view. Add to this
the fact that both the Oregon and
Washington elevens have demonstrated
that they are every bit as strong as
any ever turned out at those institu
tions and the chance for the Orange
and Black-clad crew winning from
their rivals is less than nothing.
DEER SCARCE IN COOS
Hl'IVTRnS MAY ASK LEUlSI.ATmE
KOfl LONG CLOS13D SEASON.
Warden Attributes Scarcity ef name f
Severe Winter of Last Year.
Many Carcasses Found.
MARSHFIELD. Or.. Oct. 21. (Spe
cial.) There will probably be a re
quest made of tho State Legislature
at the coming session for a closed sea
son for deer in Coos, and perhaps
Curry County, continuing through 1917,
r.nd if conditions are not found better
in the remaining districts by the in
vestigation now going on, perhaps for
an additional year or two.
Game Warden J. M. Thomas, of North
Bend, has been making a thorough
game survey, and he discovers there is
an alarming 1 scarcity of deer in this
county. Thr scarcity is attributed to
the severe cold weather of last Janu
ary. In traveling the remote sections
of the county. Mr. Thomas found many
carcasses of deer in such surroundings
as convinced him tho animals died of
cold and starvation.
The scarcity of deer extends to every
kind. Including bucks, does and fawns.
Hunters are not responsible for the
lack of deer, for none have reported
ordinary success this season, and the
number who went into the woods this
Pall was far below the average in
other soasonft. Warden Thomas has
the remainder of October In which to
finish his investigation, but he is quite
certain he will find no change any
where in the conditions.

The Dalles High School team defeated
the Stevenson team. 13 to 7, in a fast
