with the arrival today of Archie
Wyard, Seattle's boxing' marvel. In
terest in the Northwest lightweight
championship tilt between he and
"Muff Bronson. title holder, will be
Increased. The match is scheduled for
the Rose City Athletic Club Tuesday
sight. Wyard will put the finishing
touches on his training at the Butler
School of Boxing In the Northwest
building. The battle will be the main
event of a fine card.
Wyard is considered the best boy
ever turned out by the Seattle Athletlo
Club. Since he turned professional
only two months ago he has boxed
Harry Casey and Harry Anderson, ex
Northwest lightweight champion, to
draws and won a decision over Paul
Steele, of Tacoma.
Portland fans believe that "Muff
Bronson. although only weighing 128
pounds without making any effort to
take off weight, can successfully cope
.with any 133-pounder In the business
Jimmy Duffy, Oakland "shadow,"
who with Bronson and Nichol Simpson,
Is In Joe Flanigan's stable, has been
working out with the latter two and
la ready for Joe Gorman. They are
Pete Mitchie and Jack Allen. 140
pounders. are scheduled for a slugging
match" if advance dope goes for any
thing. Weldon Wing will battle Nell Zim
merman at 118 pounds, while Elmer
Thorsness, who once was considered
a great prospect, will take on Carl
Martin, of Oregon City, at 130 pounds.
Thorsness was once one of the best
beta of the Multnomah Amateur Ath
letic Club and his contest with Martin
is In the nature of a "come-back." Ted
Murphy and Jimmy Hurley, bantam
weights, will furnish the , curtala
ralser. If Nate Lewis' power of persuasion
has the right effect, Charley White
and Benny Leonard may meet in Madi
son Square Garden In the near future.
While Nate went to New York to learn
the possibility of another White-Welsh
battle for the championship, he found
n. lot ,more interest displayed to see
Charley go against Leonard.
Consider the sad plight of Leslie
James Darcy, who came away from
Australia to get away from war.
Jim Flynn, opponent for Jack Demp
ey In next Tuesday night's 15-round
boxing bout at Murray, Utah, was de
layed three days by snowdrifts on his
way to the Utah city. The Pueblo fire
man was not a bit worse for hia expe
rience, although a little rhort on Bleep.
Les Darcy met Jess Willard for the
first time last Tuesday In Chicago and,
shooting a glance skyward at the tow
ering champion, observed:
"My eye what a whopper."
Darcy and Willard exchanged pleas
antries, but said little about the pro
posed bout between the two. After
ward Darcy offered these opinions of
"He's a big one, but I thought he was
longer. But oh, that stomach what a
Darcy was still watching Willard
.when the big fellow left.
Another battler's hands have been In
sured. Benny Leonard, who is piling
up a fortune in the East with his ring
skill, is the latest to take out that kind
of a policy.
Ted "Kid" Lewis, English welter

Milwaukee. In the ninth round of a

happens that your opponent s ball is

That's a stymie. The rules bar you
from moving the ball. If you shoot
directly for the hole you'll hit the
other fellow's ball, and perhaps score
the hole for him. You can't curve
the ball around his, because golluf

BT PARL R. GOODWIN.
Lester Patrick, manager of the Spo
kane Ice hockey team of the Pacific
Coast Hockey Association, vwlll bring
his Canaries to the Portland Ice Pal
ace to meet the Uncle Sams next Fri
day night. It will be Spokane's last
appearance in Portland this season.
Rut three more
contests will be
played in the local
Ice Palace before
the season's close.
Seattle will ring
down the curtain
here March 2,
against the Uncle
Sams and on the
same night Van
couver will play
Spokane at Spo
kane. The Uncle Sams
will take their fin
al workout before
Tuesday's game in
Seattle, tonight between 7 and 8
o'clock. The E-to-L trouncing given
Seattle here Friday night caused Man
ager Muldoon, of the Northerners, to
issue orders that two hard workouts
should be- held by his team before
Tuesday's game with the Uncle Sams.
It is unfortunate that Portland is
at the bottom of the ladder in the
league race, but the way they are
going now makes It possible that they
will yet dispute the championship hon
ors. If they can "hook" Seattle Tues
day night, Vancouver will be a little
nearer, providing that Spokane la de
feated on the same night.
A strange part of the hockey sched
ule Is that Spokane will play two
games in succession in Vancouver, B.
C, and later the Millionaires will Jour
ney to Spokane for two matches.. The
Canaries were at Vancouver last night
and they remained over until Tuesday
night, when they will tangle again.
Vancouver will play at Spokane Feb
ruary 27 and March 2.
The patronage at Spokane for Its
first season In professional ice hockey
has been far from satisfactory. But
one or two crowds have been obtained
where there were more than 1000 pres
ent, and at -several of the matches only
600 were present. Just what will be
done for next year no one seems to

BT FRANK G. MENKE.
NEW YORK, Feb. 19. Special.)
Professional football watch It grow!
Once upon a time It was construed as
disorderly conduct for a youth to
cavort on a "pro" gridiron. The very
thought of accepting lucre for risking
one's life and limbs in pursuit of a
pigskin was repugnant to what is
termed "the true lover of football."
Star collegians, in the rain, ignored
offers to become professionals after
finishing their student careers.
But all that belongs to the dim and
distant past. The prejudice an un
just one which always afflicted "pro"
football was removed during the 1916
season when some of the best-known
college players In America Joined the
professional ranks. Professional foot
ball, as played last Fall through the
Middle West, made a decided hit. And
from now on henceforth and forever
we may expect to witness an ever in
creasing popularity for the "pro" game.
Ten and 15 years ago "pro" football
was tried out. It failed. That was in
the era when the interest in the pig
skin combats was confined almost
wholly to college men and their fam
ilies. The hoi pollol didn't understand
the game. Therefore, it didn't turn out
to see the "pro" combats. But in the
years that have followed the common
people have studied football, found it
an exciting game to witness and are
almost as keen about it as for baseball.
Some of the greatest football games
ever played in America were staged
last Fall in Ohio where three or four
"pro" teams operated. Their lineups
were constructed almost entlrelv with
former college stars. Jim Thorpe,
ranking as one of the most marvelous
footballers of all time, was the bright
particular star of the "pro" firmament.
Soucy and King, who played with
Harvard a year or two ago, and who
made the "All-American" elevens, also
appeared in "pro" uniforms. Players
from the Universities of Pittsburg,
Minnesota.. Illinois. Colgate, George
town. Notre Dame. Nebraska, Cornell,
Chicago, Washington and Jefferson,
Dartmouth and a dozen other big col
leges mingled in those "pro" battles.
Do you wonder now why those "pro"
contests excited so much interest?
Why they drew record crowds? Why
the games were thrillers from begin
ning to end? Every man that played
was a star of stars and each played a
game that seemed superior to that
which he displayed during his college
And those collegians played with the
same spirit that Imbued them during
their college days. They didn't play
Just because they got money for it.
Most of them are wealthy in their own
names or come from wealthy families.
It wasn't the money that lured them
but the chance to taste again of grid
Iron battle to pursue the elusive pig
skin, to crack lines and circle ends.
A football player never loses his love
for the game. And he never ceases
yearning to get back into harness.
Heretofore, the collegiate stars, at the
height of their careers, have been
forced to quit footballing after gradua
tion. Many of them wanted to play
afterward as "pros." but none really
had the courage, until this season, to
plunge into the sport. But more than
40 former satellites took the plunge iu
1916 and o one scoffed to any great
extent. That has given courage to the
others who have wanted to play "pro"
football and didn't have the nerve to
In 1917 we may expect to see "pro"
elevens recruited in many different
sections of the country. The bulk of
them will be made up of ex-colleglans,
who starred in 1913 and 1916 and there
fore, still are in their athletic prime.
And they'll be real, regular combats.
Portland Motor Boat Club
- HE trustees of the Portland Motor
I Boat Club held their first regular
meeting of 1917 at the clubhouse
Among other business, it was decided
to extend the club moorings 80 or 100
feet farther downstream, to relieve the
present congested conditions and af
ford better facilities for the new mem
bers. A membership committee has been
appointed with Fred Lamberson as
chairman personally to meet and wel
come new and prospective memberB. It
was agreed conditions were never more
promising than at present for a record
The secretary-treasurer has been au
thorized to obtain that long-promised
pool table with all appurtenances. A
room has been set aside in the club
house, and the members are promised
an opportunity to "shoot the little
balls" is the near future.
Chairman Myers, of the regatta com
mittee, proposed an opening regatta to
be held sometime the first part of May
at the club moorings to be followed by
a party and dance at the clubhouse. It
met with Instant favor by the trustees,
and plans are now on the way.
The entertainment committee is
planning a series of dances at the club
house during the Summer months.
These will be strictly' informal affairs,
but will be madetenjoyable, and are
planned to interest the wives, daugh
ters and sweethearts of the members.
All told, the coming season promises
to be one of the most enjoyable ever
experienced, and should create more
than usual interest In the Portland
Motor Boat Club and river sports in
general than ever before.
