When Myron Wllsey, of the Mult

annual Willamette River marathon.
which was a much abbreviated affair
this year compared with the usual
three-mile distance which has been the
feature of the bis river classlo on past
Ten swimmers faced Starter Frank
E. Watkms on the float at Kellogg's
boathouse and "shoved off at 2:09 to
a rood start. Seven of the entrants
were men, which number was aug
mented by three of the winged "M'
mermaids, all of whom finished the
Day Ideal for Swtmmlaa-.
Zt was an Ideal day for the big water
svent. The river was calm, a few puffs
f wind now and then only tending; to
keep the multitude which crowded the
Hawthorne bridge and surrounding
docks In a rather pleasing frame of
mind. Shortly after the swimmers got
away It rained for a few minutes and
then stopped, and when Wllsey crossed
the finishing line Old Sol was beaming
down on the crowd In all his glory.
There was huge disappointment
among the spectators when only 10
swimmers toed the starting mark. The
absence of Frank Klernan, who won
the 1916 long-distance event and who

Stempel Leads la First Half.
Stempel led the swimmers until about
JO feet from the turning point on the
east side of the river, when Myron
Wllsey spurted and turned first for the
finishing stretch back serosa the river.
O. J. Hosford was a fairly close third
all the way across the river. On the

creditable performance. Virginia Pem

N a town some distance back from
ball gams was arranged by the T. M.
C. A. war work secretaries. With about
00 men to select from, the promoters
managed to get two pretty good teams
together. Officiala and privates were
among the players. One of the best
players was a Captain, who ordinarily
Is the soul of dignity and reserve. On
the same team with him was a black
negro, who manages a team of his own
In Mobile, Alabama. In view of the
fact that considerable money was at
stake and that the play was likely to
require excellent team work, it was
agreed that all formalities should be
put aside for the period of the game; In
other words, that people should be
called by their first names. There
were some familiarities, but none
startling until the eighth Inning, when
the Captain, on first base, started for
third on a short hit. The black darky
was coaching at third, and his heart
was In the game. The run the Cap
tain might get was vital. So, as the
Captain, sprinting as swiftly as he
could, was plunging toward third, the
darky was shouting at the top of his
"Come on there, you kid! Come on
there, you rabbit. Come on, come on "
Just at that moment the Captain
tripped and rolled in a cloud of dust.
There was still time to make it If he
rose quickly. The negro, gathering the
full power of his lungs, yelled:
"Come on. you; come on, you big
stiff, you mud hen; what are we pay
ing you for?"
Out of the dust cloud rolled the Cap
tain safely to third. He put up his
hand to call the game for a moment.
Then, brushing dust from his clothes
and panting for sufficient breath for
the Brobdlngnagian utterance he was
about to make, he said to the negro:
Jim. listen to me and listen good.

Scott, Who Has Called Meet
ing for Tuesday Night.
John G. Clemson, president of the
Portland Golf Club, has donated a
beautiful trophy to be known as the
Clemson trophy and which will be
open for play by any of the three rec
ognized golf clubs In Portland.
This latest act of Clemson, who Is
one of the most ardent boosters of the
royal ancient game In Portland and the
Northwest, will be gratefully received
by golf devotees who have long felt
the want of lust such a trophy, which
will help bring the members, of the
three big golf clubs into competition
against each other.
Mr. Clemson has left all details con
nected with how the cup may be won
with W. D. Scott, chairman of the
handicap committee of the Portland
Golf Club, who has called a meeting
for next Tuesday night, at which time
representatives from the Portland Golf
Club. Waverley Country Club and
Tualatin Country Club, will arrange
the terms of play for the Clemson cup.
bpeaklng of the recent addition to
the beautiful trophies donated by Mr.
Clemson, W. D. Scott, of the Portland
Golf Club, said yesterday: "I am sure
that this latest generous offer of Mr.
Clemson will be appreciated by the
members of the three Portland clubs.
He has given the trophy with absolute
ly no strings attached to It, and is
leaving its manner of permanent pos
session to representatives of the three
While nothing has been said regard-
ng how many times the cup must be
won before it becomes the permanent
property of any club, it is said on good
authority that it will be suggested at
Tuesday's meeting that it must be won
at least three times.
and Instead of returning home from
St. Helens with the other boats, run
up Lewis River for an outing. It was
done, and Sunday afternoon we left
St. Helens and went up the east fork
of Lewis River about two miles above
La Center and landed. The next morn
ing very early the Commodore and I
started up the river, whipping the rif
fles for trout, and it was late in tne
evening before we returned. Arriving
at the boat we found her name had
been changed to Mosquito Prison, and
the women on a strike. No dinner
would be served until another berth
was found free from mosquitoes. It
was then we remembered a place we
used to admire some 25 years previous
ly as we rounded a bend in the river
when employed on the old steamer
Isabel, so the Artisan was dropped
down there and we ate. The next day
the women named the spot Paradise
Point, and we spent a happy 10 days
Captain J. O'Brien and Pilot Moore
wandered off up the North Pork trying
to find Paradise Point. A friendly
housewife a mile or bo up the river put
them right, and they landed at the
point without mishap. Captain O'Brien
said when he passed the East Fork he
thought it was a small trout stream.
Besides Captain O'Brien and Operator
Moore, the Niagara carried a "fair
passenger list. One of them. Sissy by
name, fell overboard late In the even
ing while trying to go aboard, but after
we held her before the big bonfire for
an hour she fell asleep in our lap and
forgot her troubles. Sissy, by the way,
was the little English bull mascot.
On account of the shallow water at
Paradise Pointy Commodore Boost or
dered the pilot to land the Artisan bow
on and stationed First Officer Chester
Waters on the after-deck to heave the
anchor overboard when the pilot gave
the signal, so as to keep her from
swinging with the tide. The signal was
given and Chester heaved. He and can
Johnston spent the next few hours
grappling for the anchor. Chester now
knows that the ring on the end of an
anchor Is to tie a rope in.
Levy Thornton, the 18-year-old son
of Mr. Thornton, who owns Paradise
Point, Is the owner of a fine new mo-
torboat. In recognition of the many
courtesies extended to the club by the
Thornton family in recent years, it was
with a great deal of pleasure the club

There will be a men's handicap golf
tournament at Waverley this morning,
according to an announcement by
Chairman W. E. Pearson, of the handi

number of Waverley Club members so

country resorts, it has been a difficult
task to line players up for the different
events scheduled at Waverley during

Superintendent of Parks Keyser, the
golfers are taking advantage of the
new public links and are favorably im

letter received this week by Lew

Fish Commissioner L. H. Darwin. These
fish are peculiarly suited for the
the latter after one of the hardest
matches of the tournament.

the men's singles. Mercer, the Vancou
ver star, never seemed to get started,
and Russell romped through the match
with everything his own way. Russell
played his serve with deadly accuracy
and scored numerous aces, and unlike
his usual tactics, did not depend on
his forehand drive to any great ex
tent, most of his points being won on
finely executed backhand placements.
Women's Singles Exciting.
In the women's events a great match
was that between Mrs. Cushing and
Mayme McDonald, the local star win
ning in three sets.
In the women's doubles Miss Liv

from Miss Wheaton and Mrs. Cushing,
the steadiness of the local team being
the undoing of the visitors. The match
was a three-set affair, the last and
deciding set being 6-4.
White and Wright, the juniors from
east of the mountains, took Lawrence
Brown and Waubrashek into camp In
straight sets, the local team not play

However, the Spokane-Idaho combi

Women's golf events at the Tacoma
Oountry Club have been abandoned

possibly until after the war. Women
have been so busy with war work that
they have had no time to devote to
golf. While they realize the impor
tance of recreation they are seeking it
between times and have paid little at
tention to out-of-door games.
Because of this condition, Mrs. Will
