TXarry Eddas. former chairman of
twimming at Multnomah club, re
turned last weeK from San Francisco
after spending three months hob
nobbing with the swimmers of the
south and setting all first hand in
formation on the swimming situation
on the Pacific coast.
The national mile swim to he held
in the Willamette river August 2 is
already drawing the attention of the
southern swimmers. "Stubby" Kruger,
acclaimed as the world's greatest all
around swimmer by Coach Fred Cady
of Philadelphia, who developed such
notable swimmers as Olga Dorfner,
Claire Galligan, Bessie Ryan and many
others, will arrive In Portland about
July 15 to visit with Eddas and train
in fresh .water for the national mile.
Kruger, who beat the world on his
back, has now turned over and is
crawling far in advance of many of
the best, and when he and Clarence
Lane get together there is some com
petition. Lane was swimming nearly
equal to the Duke a year ago and is
as fast. If not a little faster now than
a year ago. When he and Stubbs met
In the national junior 100, Kruger left
him behind, running the event in 67 3-5,
two seconds faster than the pre
Neptune Beach, Alameda, has been'
awarded the far western swimming,
diving and water polo meet and they
are desirous 'of having Multnomah
send their polo team south for this
event and also their girls and men
While the winged M polo team lacks
speed in the water in comparison with
many of the southwestern teams, it
makes up the odds in team work and
fast playing and would he a contender
in the event. San Francisco is about
as shy of woman divers as Portland
is of woman swimmers. Miss Gladys
Boehmer Is the leading diver among
the women of the bay city and should
furnish competition for Miss Thelma
Aileen Allen of Los Angeles will
more than likely be entered and the
club girls have waited for a long time
to get a chance at her. Mrs. Constance
Meyers and Helen Hicks are also
wanted in the southern city and while
Miss Hicks has never done any div
ing In the south her fame has spread
and Mrs. Meyers has shown them
several times that she is a diver and
it is to see the three in competition
that the southern city wants.
Multnomah swimmers would not
participate in the swimming events
but confine themselves to polo with
the exception of "Happy" Kuehn and
Louis Balbach, who if they should
go, would enter the diving.
There are mar.y of the country's
best divers in San Francisco, including
Mills, Beck, Wiegand and others.. In
terest is also being shown in the" na
tional Junior indoor diving that is to
be held at Multnomah club in Novem
ber. Clyde Svendson of the Los An
geles Athletic club has already in
quired about the event and many of
the bay city divers are slated to come
north to give "Happy" Kuehn, "Shorty"
Oliver, Louis Balbach and Don Stryker
Eddie Hart, the former Muntnomah
club swimmer, won the national junior
breast stroke recently in the fast time
of 1:20 4-5 in Oakland from a field of
four. Eddie says that it was a
beautiful race and at no time during
the race were the four more than a
yard and a half apart and the last
fifty Naumon of the Olympic club was
neck and neck and a sudden burst of
speed shot Hart across the century
line only two feet the winner. Hart
is swimming for the Oakland Athletic
The Olympic club all but received
a death blow when Ross deserted
them for the Illinois Athletic club and
they have the hammer out, along with
the rest of the bay city fans when it
comes to mentioning him, though they
still hope that he will not like the
climate of the Windy city and return
to them and in the event he does will
sure get a warm welcome. Sandy
Goodman was looked for to uphold the
Olympic clubs honor when the "Moose"
left but so far has failed to get a shove
off in any event, with the exception
of the national junior backstroke he
won at Stockton recently in 1:13, but
of course Kruger wasn't entered.
Whenever either Kruger or Lane are
entered in an event Sandy Bomehow
fails to hear the gun or is blinded by
the dust of the Hawaiian boys for he
fails to get going. In the national
junior 100 he put up the fight of his
life for the fourth place, being pressed
by Link Johnson of the Olympics, who
along with "Buster" Tait may be the
Olympic entrants in the national mile
The Oakland Athletic club, formerly
Piedmont, is now carrying the swim
ming honors of the west and with
Kruger, Lane, Schroth and Cunha in
the crawl events, Kruger in the
backstroke, and Hart in the breast
stroke need fear nothing.
Brownie Webster, former Mlutnomah
man and now swimming for Stanford,
has made his mark in the southern
swimming circles. Stanford. Cali-
fonia and St. Marys are all wondering
which of the three southern colleges
Happy" Kuehn will attend this fall
and Coach Bransten of Stanford is
showing the greatest interest, for div
ers is what he lacks for next season's
team. Webster has done his part to
ward creating the interest there, Kru
ger and Lane of St. Mary's have seen
"Happy" dive and Balbach Is pulling
a a a
The southern girls are showing lots
of pep, especially Ruth Crane of the
Neptune club, who is the coming star
of the south. She placed third In the
national 50 yards for women and was
defeated only by Bessie Ryan of Phila
delphia, national champion of the 50,
220 and 500-yard records, and Betty
Grimes, who was in Portland recently,
holder of the Central A. A. IT. titles.
Frances Cowells Schroth has been hav
ing a streak of hard luc1- during the
last two seasons, having been taken
ill before or during the season, thereby
being unable to compete. It would not
be a surprise if Kruger failed to return
to the coast after his ten-mile swim
in Philadelphia, for many of the eastern
colleges and clubs have been after him.
Miss Helen Martin, formerly of Port
land and a protege of Grace Kadderly,
won the opening event for women
swimmers in the bay region when she
won the 50 In 34. Miss Martin Is show
ing wonderful form and should be
watched, for she will make her mark
before she gets much older .and she ii
