Tha above array of the best fistic
talent In tbis part of the country will
Ko through tha paces for the Portland
hcslns; fans at the Eleventh Street
Playhouse Wednesday night. The all
atar card Is being staged under the
auspices of Company B. Multnomah
iluards. and Lou Warner, matchmaker,
aa lined up stv bouts with a champion
ship tilt on top. which, when reviewed
from every ancle, look to be six real
bonna; contests. Of late the cards
hate r.ot been any too rood and the
bouts have not turned out to be as irood
as they were billed, but it looks hard
tor the above list or battles to miss
fire, and by. the way the advance sale
of seat Is going. It looks as though the
close followers of the line are of the
same oplnlcgi. Thero are bouts on tha
till betwren boxers weighing from 2u0
to Hi pound., so there mill be plenty
jr variation tor the fans.
George Ingle, of Seattle, lightweight
rr.ampton of the Pacific Coast, will de
fend his title against Muff Bronson In
he main event. Ingle won the title
from Bronson In a torrid bout In Seattle
about a month sko. Since that time
he has defended It once, winning a de
cision from Chct Neff. In Seattle, sev
eral weeks ago. Ingle is training like
a demon and will be In the best of con
dition for a six-round setto. He will
arrive here Tuesday for the match. The
Seattle fans are backing Insle to beat
Bronson and even go as far as to pre
d.ct that the ruseed Ironworker will
. stop the speedy f'ortlandcr before the
distance Is covered.

ucder tn direction of Marty Parrell,
..the clever New York middleweight.
Varrell has been working hard with
Bronson and has put Muff wise to a lot
of new trlrks in the boxing game.
Stanley Willis, lightweight champion
of Pennsylvania and one of the best
looking prospects that has appeared
here In some time, will meet Pete
Mltchle. the Kittling Dime. In the scnil
wtndup. Willis and Mltchle put np a
hurricane bout at the last boxing show
here, the match ending In a draw.
Willis proved to the fans that ho is a
f;ist. clever boy and can hit. while
Mltchle Is regarded as one of the best
boys at his weight In the Northwest.
Mltchle has fought the best of them
and always has held his own. The
fans like his rugged, boring-in style
of milling, and with some l: knockouts

The special event featuring Mike
Pels, of Seattle, and Jack Wagner, of
Portland. Is sure to he a great contest.
Mtke Pete claims the undisputed wel
terweight championship of the North
west, and Is said to be a rapid-fire
miller. Pete has been traveling like
a "house afire" around Seattle, and his
bout with Wagner will mark his first
appearance here. lie weighs around
Wagner st Worried.
Wagner Is not worried about his
opponent's great ring powers and is
training steadily, getting In the best of
condition for the bout. Jack believes
In doing alt of his talking after the
bout, and is saying little.
Another bout on the card that Is at
tracting a good deal of Interest and
speculation among the fans Is the
match between Larry Madden and Jack I
t'lifford. heavyweights. Clifford has
lerii training several months waiting
for an opponent to turn up. and
last Larry Madden arises to accommo
date him. Madden is no slouch and
should give Clifford a good fight, al
though he Is not In as good shape as
Madden Is being backed by a syndi
cate of Portland sportsmen who think
he is a comer, and they look for him
to trim Clifford wfTHout much trouble.
A bout that should develop Into a
red-hot affair Is the one between Ted
Hoke and "Red" Gage. Hoke haa been
knocking all of his opponents out of
late, while t.age Is a comer from Seat
tie. The writer haa seen Oage In
action and he looks to be one of the
Wst bovs at his weight In the North
west. Although only about IT or IS
years old. Uage steps around like a
veteran and bits like a triphammer.
Han Salt, the well-known boxing man
ager and promoter, has taken Gage un
der bis wing, and hopes to make the
sorrr l-topped battler featherweight
champion of the Northwest before
many moons. Hoke has been going
good here, and should make the Seattle
lad extend himself.

TRAINING CAMP, Pendleton. Or.,
April 6. It became known today
that Dick Mitchell, the biff right-hand
pitcher from Pasadena, who la trying
for a Job on the Portland team, cams
near causing a panic on the train be
tween Portland and Pendleton.
This Is Mitchells first trip of any
length away from his home in Pasa
dena, and when he left Los Angeles
I It was his firtt ride in a illman
. car. He failed to sleep between Los
I Angeles and San Francisco, but the
rest oi the trip to Portland he man-
t aged to knock off a few hours of shut-
I rye each nignt.
The climax came Thursday night
after tlio train left Portland for Pen
dleton. Mitchell started dreaming, ac
cording to the story he told today,
and thinking he was in a burning
building with flames leaping up all
around him he let out an awful yell,
crying out "Fire! Fire Finel"
The other occupants of the car
quickly tumbled out of their berths,
and the porter came to the rescue with
the fire extinguisher. When he reached
Mitchell's berth he pulled open the
curtains, and seeing the youngster
struggling In his sleep wakened him
with a sound thump on the head with
the fire extinguished, which
i brought the Pasadena youth
It was a wild night, and Mitchell
says never again will he dream of fires.

Jim Barry, one of California's leading
light-heavyweights, will be the op
Donent of Mickey King, the new Idol
of Seattle boxing fans, in tne main
bout of the arena smoker set lor a
week from Tuesday night.
This announcement, together with
the news that King- will be the first
opponent of Jack Dillon when tne
Hoosier bearcat comes out this way
this month, was made by Dan Salt,
Saturday, after he had clinched the
Barry match and made tentative ar
rangements for the Dillon scrap.
The Dillon affair will be held April
24. but Portland, and not Seattle, will
get the first chance to see the two big
fellows in action. A f ortiana promot
er is bringing the well-known Indian
apolis star West, and he plans to pit
him against King in his first- start
here. However, Daniel vows that the
bearcat will be seen in a Seattle ring
as sure as he shows that he is still the
battler of old. He hints that no less
a personage than Harry Greb will be
seen here against either Dillon or our

REAL PRACTICE THIS WEEK
With Completion of Four Ball Fields
Active Training Will Be Begun.
Few Pre-Season Games Played.
Mullen Works Out Stars.
CAMP LEWIS, Tacoma, Wash., April
6. (Special.) With the completion of
four baseball diamonds across the road
from the new Liberty Theater, the final
touches were made whereby active
training for the 91st Division athletes
will commence with a vigor this week.
Charles G. Mullen, captain of the Wild
West Division team, has been working
out with several of his stars all this
week, but he put off calling the first
real practice until the backstops had
been installed and the grounds
smoothed up a bit.
The work of fixing the fields was
under the direction of Lieutenant Bes
son, athletic representative of the Field
Hospital Section of the 316th Sanitary
Train, and a delegation from each of
the companies, assisted by Sergeant
Mullen. Several practice games were
played the last few days, to get a line
on some of the Sanitary Train pros
pects. The 364th Field Hospital team won
and lost one game with the 363d Field
Hospital aspirants, while Leonard
"Waffle" Kaufman's "Aces," of the
364th Field Hospital, lost a hardfought
match to the 363d Ambulance Corps
by the score of 6 to 3. A return match
will be played next week.
Sergeant Walter Hummel, of the
364th Field Hospital Company, has
started working out for the military
athletic carnival listed for the Ice
Palace In Portland on the evening of
April 26. While he has not been able
to secure any good hurdles he has man
aged to make some for his own use
until the new ones arrive. . At the meet
he expects to wear the' colors of the
Multnomah Amateur' Athletic Club, as
will Sam Cook and. Bill Snyder, of the
316th Sanitary Train. Oook has not
been able 'to give 'much time to ath
letics since he was taken to the third
officers' training camp here, but he
expects to be away from there within
the next week or 10 days, as the camp
is scheduled to close around April 15.

The 316th Sanitary Train !s In a
good way to win the 1918 basketball
championship at Camp Lewis. The
sanitary train boys cleaned up every
thing that came their way during the
football season, and the players were
so good that six of- them played reg
ularly on the Wild West first eleven
against the famous Marines. The 316th
is in the semi-finals of the basketball
tournament now going on to determine
the season's best. All members of the
team are Oregon boys, two of them
coming from Major Sellwood's 363d
Field Hospital, and three of them fnom
the 361st Ambulance Company.
Privates Laman and Neil are from
the field hospital, while Sergeant Mac
