Oregon Entrant G?ls Close Run
When Second Honors Are Awarded
to Miss Wagoner of Washington.
Portland held her own in beauty in
competition with fair bathers from all
the northwest when Miss Pearl Keyes
was declared the most attractive by
the plaudits of the crowd which wit
nessed the contest at Columbia beach
Miss Keyes is a new swimmer in local
water circles and has been seen at the
beaches but little. She says Oregon is
her native state and she is a girl typi
cal of the great out-of-doors. A de
cided blonde, her figure and carriage
spoke of life in the open that brings
color to roses and girls.
Twenty-two Rirls entered the con
test, abou.t half of whom were Port
landers. Miss Keyes was closely
pressed for honors by Miss Bertie
Wagoner, who had adopted Washing
ton as her state, although a Portland
woman. Third went to Mrs. Connie
Meyer, who admittedly had the most
attractive costume and was ably
supplemented in her pose by her big
bulldog "Brownie." who was as proud
as his mistress of his big purple and
gold costume.
Judge las Buck to Crowd.
The judges, consisting of the sport
ing editors of the local newspapers,
tossed up the sponge when it came to
picking the winner and so put the job
up to the crowd. Miss Washington
gave Miss Oregon a close run, but Miss
Keyes in an outrit of gold and pale
green finally was declared the north
west's most attractive bathing girl.
J. M. Kieg, manager of Columbia
Beach, stated before the contest that
the winner would be sent to any sim
ilar contest held anywhere in the
United States as the representative of
Oregon. Accordingly, Miss Keyes may
be sent to Atlantic City as the most
attractive girl of the northwest's
"beaches, there to pose as the repre
sentative of the state.
Costumes, generally, were most mod
est in comparison with what some peo
ple had expected as representing the
dif f eren t beaches of the country. Port
land still has to see the shoulder-strapless
bathing suit and similar nerve
wracking affairs. Most of them would
have been termed practical and yet
attractive outfits for either sand or
ThotiMnnd View Context.
The 'Castle Cape" now the "thtng,,
on the eastern beaches, was present.
This accessory covers the more ex
treme suits until the bather enters the
water and is a tip that others will be
quick to follow.
The Broadway Novelty orchestra
helped entertain the crowd of several
thousand people that came to witness
the annual affair. The parade feature,
each girl riding in a big car. made the
presentation novel and gave all the
crowd an opportunity to judge of their
favorite at close range.
The youngest entrant in the contest
was ruled out. The year-old son of Mr.
and Mrs. J. M. Rieg appeared in his own.

Need of Right Sort of Exercise
Emphasized by Former Ath
letic Adviser at Yale.
NEW YORK, Aug. 2. (Special.)
Walter Camp, for years chief athletic
adviser at Yale, has a brand new idea.
Walter wants to prevent folks from
growing old. It sounds like a gigantic
task the Yale man has cut out for
himself but he is absolutely certain he
can get away with it. so his plan is at
least worth looking into '-for fear it
might produce results.
Camp declares that approaching age
is always manifested first in the joints.
Folks who eat heartily and are denied
t least two hours of manual labor
each day are bound to stiffen and
weaken, but if they will take his plan
and work it conscientiously they can !
cheat Father Time and prolong their
Camp declares with much emphasis
that most people give themselves en
tirely too much concern about exer
cise. He advises strongly against this
and points out that exercise is simple,
providing nothing but exertion, and the
human frame was made for a certain
amount of exertion each day.
One of his suggestions is to take ex
ercise when indications are manifest
that it is needed. For instance, when
one rises from a chair they should not
assist themselves to their feet, but rise
with the assistance of the muscles of
the trunk. If rising from a chair is
painful, he advises that it be done sev
eral times in succession- just to ac
quaint the muscles of the back of the
work they were intended to do.
Camp's suggestions for exercise are
so simple as to almost provoke a laugh,
but to those who are experiencing the
difficulties which he associates with
approaching age, they should carry
much weight, for few men in this coun
try have given the matter of physical
exercise so much thorough study as the
Yale authority. Camp says he realizes
that all people cannot be athletes, ou
every person is obligated to preserve
their health, and this is impossible un
less they exercise every set of muscles
in the body in some fashion or another.
even though that fashion be in the some
blmple movement not usually credited
with value as an exercise.

Relatives of Heavyweight King Still
Reside in West Virginia.
Jack Dempsey, heavyweight cham
pion of the world, although bom in
Manassa, Colo., sprang from the purest
type of West Virginia mountaineer
stock. The champion's grandfather,
Ance Dempsey, was a pioneer settler
of Logan county.
The report, widely circulated, that
Dempsey was born near Williamson,
W. Va., is incorrect. It is slightly over
a quarter of a century since H. I.
Dempsey and the mother of the new
champion left their old home at Wil
liamson. Jack was born about a year
after his parents arrived in the west.
The old Dempsey homestead in the
mountains near Williamson is located
only a short distance from the abode
of "Devil" Ance Hatfield, wh,o gained
widespread notoriety dur'ng the Hat-
fteld-McCoy feud.
Although there are still many close
relatives of the Dempsey family resid
ing in that vicinity, the present cham
pion never has visited them.
Both Dempsey's father and grand
father were farmers and woodsmen
and are remembered by old residents
of Williamson as fearless mountaineers
who stood high in a community where
courage was demanded of all.
At the present time there are two
uncles and several cousins of the
champion residing In Mingo county.
One of the latter is Mrs. W. O. Potter,
wife of the. mayor of Williamson.

Swimming Coach Declares Speed
Gained as Resistance From
Water Is Lessened.
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 2. (Special.)
Dick Dungan, the swimming eoach at
Camp Yosemite and holder of the five
world's professional records, thinks
that the new trudgeon crawl stroke ia
going to be the fast style of the future.
Dungan himself swims the pure Ameri
can crawl and with this stroke has cov
ered, under official timing, 50 yards in
24 seconds, 100 yards in 57 seconds, 220
yards in 2:39 and 100 yards back stroke
in 1:11 2-5.
In spite of the fact that his style is
distinctly opposed to the new method
Dungan thinks that the trudgeon crawl
will replace the crawl as the prevailing
style in competitive swimming in the
"The new trudgeon crawl," said
Dungan, "seems at first glance to be a
step backward in swimming evolution
That is, the crawl style has been called
the ultimate style in competitive swim
ming because it eliminates all possible
resistance to the water while swim
"That is, the scissor kick, which was
the distinguishing feature of the
trudgeon as opposed to the craw
stroke, has been done away with, and
the simple up-and-down thrash has
been substituted. This means that the
resistance which the opening of the
legs in the scissors kick caused is done
away with in the narrow scope thrash
or the crawl.
"However, it seems that the scissors
kick still has its place in speed swim
ming. The scissor need not have more
than a 20-inch scope in the new stroke,
and this kick is effected with great
dispatch, the opening and closing of the
legs taking less time than the swimmer
uses in getting his breath.'

NEW YORK, Aug. 2. (Special.)
Some unusual boxers have broken into
the limelight during the past few years.
but Jimmy Hill, the Australian feather
weight, who came to this country
cently for the purpose of clashing with
Champion Johnny Kilbane, seems to be
the most considerate of all ringmen
who have enjoyed the limelight
America for many years.
Hill whipped everything in the Antip
odes in the feather class, so he packed
his duds and shipped to this country
when he landed in California Hill wa
flushed with the prospect of battling
for the crown but his aspirations were
punctured when .he learned that Cham
pion Kilbane had lost one of his little
daughters through illness.
Hill hooked up with Tim Sullivan
the man who brought Les Darcy here
He told Sullivan to go out and get him
some matches. Then Hill cautioned
Sullivan to keep all challenges away
from Kilbane because the champion
was feeling depressed over the loss
his child. "I want to fight for the
featherweight title." said Hill, "but
am not going to be the first one to
draw the champion into a ring after he
has suffered such a loss as the death
a daughter."
