That the best amateur gTSpplers In
the United States will attend the Ama
teur Athletic Union championships to
be held In Portland under the auspices
of the Multnomah Amateur Athletlo
Club May 11 and 12 is evident from a
letter Just received by Instructor Ed
ward J. O'Connell from Edgar E.
Frank, chairman of the registration
committee of the Paclf lo Northwest As
sociation, -who is scouring: the Middle
West and East In order to obtain rep
resentation from every leading; club
and college in the country.
The letter was written by Mr. Frank
In Chicago. He says that the Chicago
Athletic Club will send a team with a
special trainer, who Is none other than
the famous Martin Do Laney, the Chi
cago club's own Instructor, who has
turned out some of the best wrestlers,
both amateur and professional. In

Chicago. 135 pounds, both last year's
National champions. He win also
bring Spyris Borres, an unattached 125
pound boy of Chicago -who won the
1915 National championship at San
Francisco. These lads will come to
gether with the winners of several big
tournaments to be held in the Windy
City within the next tew weeks. Mr.
Frank will probably referee soma of
these tournaments so that he can get
a line on the candidates for this great
From Chicago Mr. Frank probably
will go to Montreal where more than
likely he will secure the Canadian
champlcns if the war will permit them
to get away. Montreal is the home of
Gene Tremblay, ex-welterweight cham
pion of the world, and the Montreal
Athletlo Club has turned out many
famous knights of the mat
Edgar will trek to New York then to
look over the situation there where
they will have the big Eastern tryouts.
There ho will make arrangements to
bring out the winners of the intercol
legiate wrestling meets which take
place early in March. The pick of the
big Eastern colleges will be repre
sented. After this he will go to New Orleans
where he will get the Southern aggre
gation and back to Portland by way of
Los Angeles and San Francisco. Both
the Los Angeles and Olympic Clubs will
The roruand Toungr Men's Christian
Association, the local high schools and
the Northwest colleges will all send

take part in the meet. Competition
will take place both the afternoon and
evening of May 11 and 12 at the Mult

explained that due to a touch of neu-1

pler. he felt unequal to the task of
meeting Santel in his first match. He
proposed a bout against some inferior
opponent as a starter, with Santel in
the dim and distant future.
Naturally this didn't suit Santel. who
wanted to be in on the moneymaker,
and threatened to quit San Francisco
for good and all unless his wishes
could be respected.
Likewise it failed to appeal to the

Mee-her Is Converted.
Hetmanek started a series of tele

which he intimated by eaey stages that
Stecher might get into shape faster
than at first was thought could be the
case, and if so, he would accept the

willing to give it to him, if a suitable

Strangler Ed Lewis, who has had
quite a successful Western tour from
a standpoint of winning matches, as
well as financially, has left this part
of the country. He departed last week
for Chicago along with the announce
ment that ho was to marry a New
York girl and that he would retire, at
Lewis saye the question of his con
tinuing as a professional srappler is
all up to Mrs. Lewis.
No one takes him seriously on this
score, however. Once a professional,

the West was not unexpected. He had
used up the available talent and. sinco

Girl FIsht Manager Is Nevelty.
San Francisco tisht fans have been
thrilled by something in the way of a.
novelty a girl tight manager.
Elizabeth Tucker, who is here with
her brother flichters, Frankle and Lon
nie Tucker, from Oklahoma, is th
young woman who Is getting the pub
licity and who last Friday night caused
the fans to turn out in large numbers
because it was promised the wijuld be
in the corner during the scrap.
Chief of Police White granted per
mission for her to put in an appearance
on that one occasion. She waited in
the box office until Brother Frankle
was called to the ring. Then she slipped
into an inconspicuous seat at the ring
side and watched proceedings.
Miss Tucker left the real towel
swinging to hired seconds and if the
crowd looked forward to watching a
girl shout advice from the corner. It
must have been sorely disappointed.
Incidentally Tucker lost to Jimmy Dun
dee by a city block, but a couple of
gallant judges, whose eyes must have
been in the backs of their headw gave
Frankie the flag just the same.
Comment on the poor decision
caused the immediate rematching of
the pair, but unless the Tuckers scrap

played, even a sister manager will not
