TO GO TO VICTORIA
Team Picked at Recent Tryout
at Club Will Enter in P. N.
MISS PAYNE TO CONTEST
Diving Experts From Portland In
6titutlon Are Expected to Make
Good Showing in British
As the result of the tryout staged at
the Multnomah Club tank Saturday
night, July 20, the following? team will
represent the Multnomah Amateur
Club in the P. N. A. championships at
Victoria. B. C, on August 21; O. J. Hos
ford, Myron Wilsey, Locke Webster,
ILouis Balbach, H. W. Buckland, Miss
Thelma Payne and Mrs. Constance
Meyer. Mrs. Meyer and Miss Payne,
women's National fancy diving cham
pion, will take part In the fancy div
ing contests and Mrs. Meyer will also
enter the high diving event for women.
There seems to be no doubt in the
mind of Swimming Instructor Jack
Cody that Mrs. Meyer is the greatest
fancy high diver in the country and
whether or not he is right will be seen
In the next National fancy high div
ing championship. Now that Multno
mah Club has Miss Thelma Payne in
the role of the new National indoor
diving champion and Helen Hicks, Irene
Pembroke and Virginia Pembroke in
the 10-foot springboard event, should
Mrs. Meyer capture the National hi5h
diving championship the Winged M

on America's women's fancy diving
O. J. Hosford, Myron Wilsey, Louts
Halbach, Locke Webster and II. W.
Buckland, the men who will represent
Multnomah Club, are all well known
find should give the many entries in the
P. N. A. championships plenty of com
petition. New Club Member In Sprints.
H. W. Buckland, the newest member
of the club's swimming team, will enter
the 100-yard back-stroke race and the
EOO-yard grind with his teammate, O. J.
Hosford, 500-yard champion of Oregon.
Balbach and Wilsey will be seen in the
eprlnts. Wilsey will also swim the 200
yard race, while Balbach will enter the
high and fancy diving events. Balbach
is one of the best fancy divers on the
Pacific Coast and it would not be sur
prising if he copped the title.
Locke ("Brownie") Webster, the
club's star water polo man, is entered
In the breastroke and the plunge for
distance. Webster is the Northwest
champion in the plunge for distance.
All of the men that will go to Vic
toria are expert water polo players and
will tangle with the best teams in this
section of the country for the water
polo team championship. There are a
number of crack teams in British Co
lumbia, and the club boys will have to
fcattle at their best to win the title.
JO. J. Hosford will captain the team.
Portland Marathon Swim Planned.
The next big swimming event in
Portland will be the annual Multnomah
Club marathon swim in the Willamette
River on August 10. The annual mar
athon swim is. always the biggest out
door aquatic event of the season in
Portland, and is yearly witnessed by
thousands of fans. In the past the
course of the swim has been from the
Oregon Yacht Club moorings to the foot
of Salmon street, but this year Jack
Cody has decided to shorten the swim
a. good deal and make it faster, so in
stead of being along the old course it
will be across the river, starting from
Kellogg's boathouse at the foot of Sal
mon street, and swimming across the
river and back. The distance will be
a litle over 900 yards, making it an
Instructor Cody is looking for a large
entry list and a great race. Up to date
the following well-known swimmers
liave sent in their entry blanks: O. J.
Hosford, Albert Enegrene. Frank Kier
nan, Jr.. G. W. Smith, Harry Eddas, Bill
Etemple and Myron Wilsey. At least
10 more swimmers are expected to en
ter before the closing time is reached.
.mere win also De a swim for women
across the river and back, starting at
the same time as the men's marathon.
The women's annual Golden Gate
wim, won several weeks ago by Miss
Francis Cowells, of San Francisco, ap
pears to have been as much a test of
trrit and stamina as of speed. High
teas, extremely cold water and a sweep
ing cross tide made conditions so bad
that 15 of the 32 entries were forced
to abandon the contest before com
pleting the course. It took Miss Cowells
one hour and 14 minutes and 23 seconds
to finish, although she has made the
trip under a half hour in fair weather.
Lundy Langer, worlds swimming re
cordist, formerly of Los Angeles, more
recently of Honolulu, is now in the
eervice and stationed at Camp Gordon,
Ga. He returned to competition last
week, after a year of inactivity and at
tended a Red Cross water carnival at

J Poll Perrltt Likes Stories.
Poll Perrltt, who owns a farm in
Louisiana and employs thereon a large
number of darkies, is fond of negro
stories and tells them remarkably
well. He always has a large fund
cf them and provides no end of amuse
ment for the other Giants with his
tales. His latest story deals with
colored soldier in the trenches. It
seems that the trooper in question
disdained to use his rifle and bayonet
In close fighting, preferring to depend
on his trusty razor, which had been
ground to an exceedingly fine edge and
In the use of which he was particu
larly adept. One day, so the story
goes, a wave of Germans advanced
toward the trench in which this darky
was crouched and as one of them ap
peared at the edge the son of Ham
rose up and sliced, at the Hi n's throat.
"Missed me," ejaculated Fritz with a
-Missed er, hey?" was the cTarky's
comeback. "You Just try to move
your haid and see if Ah missed yer."
C. "W. Leonard, of Boston, is getting
together a very select stable of trot
ters. During the North Randall meet
ing he paid 110,000 for the 4-year-old
filly Selah Baird and last week at Kal
amazoo he gave $25,000 for the 3-year-old
colt Chestnut Peter, which will in
all probability start favorite at all of
the big futurities. Mr. Leonard also
owns the good horse On the Rhine, by

PLAYERS IN PUBLIC EYE
Cardinal Shortstop, Greatest In
League Last Year, loses His
Crown to Cubs' Brll- .
Appearing on the St. Louis Cardinals
and Chicago Cubs are two young rival
shortstops who have been very much in
the public eye this season. One of the
lads, Charlie Hollocher, is well known
to Portland and Pacific Coast fans as
the shining young shortpatcher of the
Portland Beavers in 1917 and now with
the Cubs. The other chap is Roger
Hornsby, of the St. Louis Cardinals.
Hornsby has created much comment
because of his failure to live up to the
reputation of his 1917 performances,
when he was regarded as the prize
package among the young inflelders of
the National League. Charlie Hollo
cher, of the Cubs, is a St. Louis boy
who has jumped into the spotlight for
merly occupied by Hornsby because of
his sensational all-around work with
the Bruins this season.
Hornsby Best Last Year.
A year ago the Cardinals were pen
nant contenders because Hornsby was
breaking up game after game with his
long hits and making the pitching easy
for his side by cutting down hit after
hit for the twirlers of his club. Horns
by has been in a hitting and fielding
slump all season and that's one reason
the Cardinals have tumbled into last
place instead of again figuring as a
On the other hand. Hollocher has
made a pennant factor for the Cubs.
This brilliant young player, cavorting
for the first time as a big leaguer,
has taken the place formerly occupied
by Hornsby. Major league fans re
mrd Charlie as the prlxe shortstop of
the two big circuits. He Is a fielding
demon, as well as a dangerous, hard
and timely hitter. He has outdone
Hornsby in every department of the

The unexpected showing of the two
players recalls to mind tne numerous

eager to procure Hornsby. It was
reliably reported that he had offered
150,000 for Hornsby, putting the St.
Louis inflelder in the class of "$50,-

Rickey, of the Cardinals, refused to
listen to any of these offers.

The famous Fiske cup, one of the
most widely known and talked of
trophies in the country, finally went
out of competition, when Walter Goss
yesterday afternoon defeated Brandt
Wickersham in the finals of the men's
singles in the Oregon state champion
ship tournament at the lrvingtoa
Goss won the cup on two previous
occasions and only needed one mors
victory to get permanent possession of
the cup. which has been in competition,
for a period of 19 years, and which has
many well-known names at the tennis
world carved on its surface. Goss won
the state championship in last year's
Brandt Wickersham opened the game
with a rush, outplaying his rival by a
long margin. Whatever Goss served
or returned seemed to come square
into Wlckersham's racquet only to be
returned to some corner of the court
where Goss least expected it.
W irkrraham Takes First Two.
The first set closed with Wickersham
on the long end of the score, 4-6. In
the second st Goss again was out
played and Wickersham once more was
returned victor, capturing that set, 3-6.
Here, however, Wickersham broke
down under the terrible strain and Goss
captured the third set, 6-4. It looked
for a while as if Wickersham also
would win that one. The puce, how
ever, was too much for the former
Portlander, and tloss won the next
two sets easily, 6-1. 6-2.
The game, as a whole, was not very
sensational. Both men were steady,
but neither one of them did anything
out of the ordinary. Each one relied
on his experience and knowledge of
the game, Wickersham being more er
ratic than Goss and not so spectacular.
In the semi-finals in the men's sin

of four sets and Wickersham took
