Homer Jamison's boys now have six
wins and no defeats, and the schedule

two Institutions meet In the final con

on Thursday afternon the schedule
calls for Franklin High to meet the

Just where the Jefferson-Columbia

may be that Coach Conway, of Colum

Jefferson, will decide to set it ahead
Jefferson High will be the only one
to complete the 1917 schedule this
week. All the other aggregations will
have to hold over until next week.
Washington High does not appear on
the list, so it will give Captain Bob
Snodgrass and his athletes a chance

place a week from Friday night with
the Seattle Metropolitans playing
against the Uncle Sams In the Portland
Ice Palace and the Spokane Canaries

Next Tuesday night the Vancouver
team will make its final appearanoe In
Portland and the match promises to be
all that hockey followers want. The
Uncle Sams won the championship of
the circuit last Winter and now they
do not propose to be left in the cellar.
They have three more games on the
schedule Tuesday night against Van
couver here, Saturday night against
Vancouver at Vancouver and a week
from Friday against Seattle in Port
land. The race for the championship sees
Seattle as the favorite, although the
Millionaires are not out of the run
ning. Seattle has three remaining con
tests, one with Portland and two with
Spokane at Seattle. It Is certain that
Spokane wlllv fight hard to win, al
though the Birds have dropped five out
of -six games so far to the Metropol
itans, and with this In their favor Pete
Muldoon's aggregation looks like "the
goods" for the title.
Captain "Moose" Johnson Is satis
fied with the showing made - by his
Uncle Sams in their 9-to-l victory over
Spokane here Friday night. The boys
fought for everything and the size of
the score was just about the differ
ence in the two septets. Tommy Dun
derdale played a great game and caged
three goals, as did Charley Tobin. The
lone Spokane goal was made by Leo
Cook on a pass from Kenny Mallen.
The Portlanders are out to show Van
couver a few things about hockey here
"Smoky" Harris expects to be In
shape to play against his old rivals
Tuesday night. The speedy one did
not put on his suit last Friday be
cause of his Injured leg. He reported
to Dr. Earl Smith, the club physician,
last night and Dr. Smith announced
that he was getting along fine. Tommy
Murray has been afflicted with bolls
on his neck.
Although he has not had much
chance to show his real worth so far.
Stan Marples went In Friday night,
scoring one -goal and getting two as
sists. He was in the play all the time
and he made an impressive showing.
The next game of the Portland Ama
teur Ice Hockey Association will b
played tomorrow night, when the Po
lice and the Northwest Auto Hockey
Club meet in the Ice Palace. At the
first meeting of these teams the Police
Lincoln HIgh'a puckchasers will tan
gle with the Wsshington High team In
the Ice Palace tomorrow afternoon at
3.15 o'clock. Both Institutions are old
rivals. Columbia University and Lin
coln High are tied for first honors,
with three victories and no defeats,
and the championship battle is sched
uled for next Friday in the Ice Palace.
The second Ice earnlval of the season
will be held Thursday night. Several
prizes will be awarded to the best
