Jug Cowboy Belay Race,
PENDLETON'. Or., Sept. 22. Six new
champions emerged today from the
finals of the eighth annual Hound-up.
Only one of the former champions was
araln victorious today.
Through three days cf a race which
saw three accidents, Mabel de Lone, of
"Walla Walla, riding the Drumheller
atrlng, managed to ride first under the
wire and again is champion cowgirl
relay rider of the world.
In a ride that for Its sensational fea
tures will be Round-up history, Yakima
C'anutt, of Wyoming, captured the $400
purse and 9350 saddle offered to the
best tucking horse rider. With it goes
the world's championship.
C'anutt. a picturesque cowboy, rodo"
eecor.d In the event in 1914. and is a
general favorite. He was the last one
Riding Exhibition Wonderful.
Always spectacular, he started using
his spurs the moment he was in the
saddle and he scraped his horse until
the gun sounded. 1'or an exhibition of
finished riding, it was superb. Cul de
Har, his mount, is a fitting successor to
Long Tom. who is sick this year, but
he never showed the variety of bucking
that Canutt got out of him today. He
pivoted, cake-walked, sunflshed and
plunged with a series of stiff-legged
Jumps that will unseat many a rider,
but Canutt was in championship form
and the decision of the Judges was not
necessary to announce the champion.
Broncho Bob Hall, of Independence,
third-place man last year, and still on
a crutch as the result of an injury to
lils ankle during the tryouts last week,
drew Angel in the finals and captured
second money, a purse of $200. Hall
made a fine ride. Angel, the horse
that made champions of Lew Minor in
1912, and of Jackson Sundown last
year, uncovered a new trick this year.
At the loosening of the .blind he reared,
pswing the air for a ft w moments,
came down for a couple of hard bucks,
then he reared again, repeating the
performance again and again. It was
all the same to Hall, who used his spurs
repeatedly. Dave White, who placed
third, drew P. J. Nutt, a small horse,
but a wicked buoker. and rode him well.
Acrtdent Blocks Victory.
Allen Drum.ieller was cheated out
of his chance to win the cowboy re
ley race for the third consecutive
year. when, just after the last change,
his horse lost his footing on the wet
track and pitched the Walla Walla
boy over his head onto tho ground.
Up to that time the race had been een
satlonal. Drumheller. who was 3 1-5 second
ahead of Nep Lynch in the two days'
time, was able to get the pole on the
start. Lynch passed him at the end of
the first half, but Drumheller gained
again on the change and these two rid
ers, between whom there has been the
keenest rivalry all season, raced neck
and neck through another change and
were side by side when the accident
occurred. Lynch finished with a total
time of 12:24 1-5 for tho three day.
Irumheller was carried off the field,
hut later reappeared, none the worse
for his tnmbl". It was announced later
ry the Judges that second place had
been awarded to Drumheller. making
Lynch also is pony express champion,

Mildred Douglas, of Cheyenne, rode
to victory In the cowgirls' bucking con
test on Wild Cat. a horse that proved
all of a match for one of the best men
riders yesterday. Olive Osborn rode
second on Brandy, and Frairle Rose
Henderson, third, on Snake.

Frank Roach, of Meacham. is cham
pion roper of the world, with a total
time of 1 minutes, 2 2-5 seconds on

Weir, was third, with 1:26 2-5.

seconds. Jim Lynch was second, with
time of 30 seconds, and Lloyd Sanders,
third. In S4 1-5 seconds.
Despite the lowering clouds which
developed a drizzle during parts of the
afternoon, the crowd packed the grand
stand and bleachers to capacity and
the fences were lined with late comers
who failed to find seats.
More than 30.000 persons were ad
mitted. It was a crowd that equaled
the rcord attendance of 1912 and the
rain did not In the least dampen their
appreciation of the keen- competition
In every event on the track and In the
arena. There was not enough rainfall
to do more than wet the surface,
though it is possible that it slowed

Coach Relay Exciting.
The day was more free from acci
dents than any of the three. The stage
coach race, always teeming with pos
sibilities for trouble. furnished a
thriller today, when t Inside stage
crowded against the barrier, ran one
wheel Inside and demolished several
hundred yards of fence before it could
be freed. There was no Injury to either
men or horses and the coach, finished
Josephine Sherry, who was hurt in
the girls' relay yesterday, was in the
arena today, but did not ride. Her place
today was taken by Katie Wilkes

the third accident of the race when her
horse fell on a slippery turn Just after
the rain. She was not Injured.

WASHINGTON. Sept 22. The hand
to hand character of modern trench
warfare is sharply illustrated by de
tailed tables of organisation for Amer
ican overseas infantry units.' made pub
lic today by the War Department.
Only a few years ago the wise men
of all armies predicted that because of
higher power, long range artillery and
rifles and automatic and machine guns.
troops would never come io actual
grips. Tho complete reorganization of
the whole infantry service outlined in
the new tables, however, is based on
the proved fact that the battle will be
decided by the foot soldiers, fighting
breast to breast with bombs, bayonets
Soldiers to. Carry lvnlvr.
Included in the eq,dipmen of Amer
ican regiments which enter the trench
es are "trench knives." one of the most
up-to-date" developments of European
battlefields. In addition each infantry
division will have 416 machine guns.
Less than two years ago the American
Army had not more than 1200 of these
weapons for its entire active and re
American troops will enter the
trenches equipped and organized in a
way that no other army engaged in
the war has been able to provide. Ev
ery lesson learned by the allies has
been adapted promptly and the over
seas units will be supplied with every
weapon found useful.
Platoon to Have 58 Men.
The tables published today fixed an
Infantry, platoon as the operating unit.
It will be composed of 58 enlisted men
under a lieutenant. In each platoon
there will be a section or 22 bombers
and rifle grenadiers, two sections of
24 riflemen, all of them trained marks
men, and the only survival of the old
Infantryman, and one section of 11 auto-riflemen
who will handle the light
machine guns or the automatic shoul
der rifles that may be developed.
This, means that there will be four
light machine guns in the line for every
80 men, backed by the regimental and
divisional machine-gun battalions and
companies with the heavy, water-cooled
weapons that are the real first line of
defense in trench warfare.
The -use of trench knives supplants
the old rifle and bayonet for 4ft men In
company of 250. These terrible weap
ons are long, keen knives, with heavy
metal hilts, worn strapped to the left
arm and are made for uso in trench
raids by men who cannot be encum
bered with rifles and bayonets because
of their special duties. .

Each company of an infantry regi
ment will have four of these typical
platoons and each regiment will have
