1.- some dope on the far western div
insr meet, for which, i'ortland swim-n,:r-
circles long have been waiting.
Mrs. Constance Meyer and Helen
Hicks of the Multnomah Amateur
Athletic club were contestants in the
far western swimming and diving
championships at Neptune beach. Ala
meda, on July 3 and 4. The results
of the diving were announced as Miss
Aileen Alien of the "Los Angeles Ath
letic club, first In diving; Mrs. Meyer
second, two-tenths of a point behind
Miss Allen, and Helen Hicks third.
.Mrs. Meyer lost her diving title to
Miss Allen in 191$. the national meet

ing caught quite unprepared lost, al
though it was said in the south that
had she been in condition she would
Miss Allen then held the title and.
although Multnomah club staged the
national meet in 191S. Miss Allen
would not Journey north, giving as
her excuse that she was 111. Portland
fans naturally took an unusual
amount of interest In the far western
meet this year, for it was understood
that Miss Payne and Mrs. Meyer both
would compete and Los Anirelrs had
piepared Miss Allen to meet the na
tional champion and the former cham
pion. So the outcome of the diving.
while disappointing, was not wholly a
surprise, but that the score should be
o close caused a good deal of spec
ulation. After the meet Mrs. Meyer congrat
ulated Miss Allen and after promis
ing to "get" her next year asked the
Judges If she might have one of the
-.opies of the score sheets used in the
meet. This was granted and Mrs.
.Meyer brought them home for her
scrap book. O. J. Hosford. chairman
of swimming at Multnomah club,
asked Mrs. Meyer if he might see the
diving sheets that she hiid brought
home, as he would like to see how
both Miss Allen and herself had been
marked by the judges, who, by the
way, are national authorities on div
ing. This Mrs. Meyer gladly did and
w hile perusing the score Hosford dis
covered on the sheets a mistake in
multiplication of two points in favor
of Miss Allen. This would make Mrs.
Meyer the winner by six-tenths of a
Hosford then placed the matter be
fore officials of the Multnomah club,
who immediately took It up with the
amateur athletic union officials in
San Francisco. The matter has been
cone over thoroughly and It is known
that the mistake was not intentional,
but Just the kind of a mistake that
anvone might make.
The fact that the Judge, whose
sheet was in error. Is one of the best
known Instructors in the country and
wholly impartial to either of the
divers, clears him of any suspicion
r intentional wronk. In the meantime
me medals for the meet have not
been awarded and the Multnomah
club officials have bidden their time,
knowing that the original score
rheets would have to be forwarded
to San Francisco from the head office
ol tne athletic union.
It was not until Fields blew Into
town yesterday, bringing word that
he had met Miss AlUn on the streets
of Una Angeles the day before he left
for i'ortland. and that she had told
him that in . visiting Portland he
mould see the far western diving
champion, and went Into detail with
him about how she had really lost
Instead of won the meet.
While no word has been received
officially by O. J. Hosford. the fact
that Fields knew about the matter
causes him to expect official an
nouncement of the outcome shortly.
The young girl swimmers are com
ing to the front by leaps and bounds.
Miss Thelma Finn. 16-year-old swim
mer of the Los Angelas Athletic club,
in a recent swim with Dorothy Burns
at 1 yards, finished a close second,
making the century in 1:13. This is

NEW YORK, Oct. 4. For those who
make a deep study of the billiard
game, there Is much food for thought
and refection in the coming tourna

In the first place, the tournament
should show to some extent the ad
vantages and disadvantages of two
widely different general styles of play
the carefully played "systems" and
the sometimes erratic but none the
less brilliant styles. While the style
of each player differs greatly from
that of every other one. It Is still
safe to say that certain of them work
"toward a consistent, regular acquisi
tion of points rather than to depend
on flashes of speed to reach the cov

Mr. Mitchell, who says he was one

Paul Dickinson, chairman of the

smoker will be held on the night of
October 16. The smoker is the big
stag event of the year, and Frank E.
Harman, chairman of the boxing and
wrestling committee, and Eddie
O'Connell, instructor of boxing and
wrestling, have been busy lining up
the best mitt and mat talent that can
be obtained for the occasion.
Besides the boxing and wrestling
there will also be a clever pro
gramme. Frank E. Harmar Is arranging for
an inter-club meet with the Spokane
Athletic club, to be held in Spokane
October 15. It will be the first of a
series of matches between the two
clubs for the championship.
One of the big events in boxing and
wrestling circles here this year will
be the tournament to be held In the
club gym on Thanksgiving eve, when
the Olympic club, Spokane Athletic

The Inter-club fencing contest will
take place in March. This Is the first
of its kind, but in all probability it
will become a permanent institution
with the club. A silver cup will be
given to the winner of the contest.
Right Off the Bat.
N THE last day of the season in
Wichita Joe Wilhoit was pre
sented with a gold medal by admir
ing fans for his feat in breaking all
records for hitting consecutively.
Stock in the Red ball club is still a
commodity on the Cincinnati stock ex
change. It seems the club officials
got the idea that some of the stock
was being bought because the pur
chasers thought a world's series pass
would go with each share held, so a
rule was made that stock must be held
on a certain date to get a pass.
The luckiest ball player of the year
in Charley See, the young outfielder
bought by Cincinnati from Rochester
on recommendation of Gene McCann
and Arthur Irwin. He made them
give him a slice of the purchase price,

That is up to the boys them

For when asked, as he has been a
hundred times, what he has done
to bring about Cincinnati's dra
matic revival, his reply is always:
"They have simply played the
game and I don't want any more
credit than you give my boys." In
Gleason there is found a perfect
replica, for while his tactics vary
in minor detail:, the secret of his
success has been the loyalty he in
spires among his cohorts.
As a sticker and a qultless vet
eran the honors go to the gray
headed "Kid" of Chicago. As a
producer of the miraculous phenix
in big league baseball, Patrick
Moran is the most picturesque fig
ure since the days of the original
money. And he's played in only half
a dozen games and looked like a
fright in those.
Veteran Chicago fans who saw the
old Cincinnati Reds and the newly
shining Chicago White Sox play for
the "championship" of the then
known baseball world In 1870 made
the trip to Cincinnati for the world's
series, there to meet other veteran
fans who rooted for the 1S69 and
1870 Reds. It was some reunion and
it is to be hoped that the old fellows!
didn t fall out and fight.
George Stallings is said to be much
pleased with several of his recruit
braves. He particularly likes Ford,
the young collegian who Is being tried
at third; Carroll, the outfielder from
Memphis, and O'.Veill. the catcher who
comes from Rochester through the
New York Giants in the Nehf trade.
Ford played in the New England
league this year until that circuit
broke up. Nutter Is another new
comer with the Braves, but his work
has not been so impressive.
NAME TO LIVE
Football Team of Detroit Will Play
Under Ball Club Name.
DETROIT, Mich., Oct. 4. Even
though the Detroit Tigers have parted
company with Navln Field until base
ball Is resurrected In 1920, the name
"Tigers" will continue in use.
The university of Detroit football
ers will use the name in reference to
their eleven, which plays eight games
within thp walls of Navin field this
season. Coach Duffy has been ask
ing for suggestions from many per
sons for a nickname, but the best one
of all seemed to be "Tigers."
With so many other large univer
sities having adopted various names,
it was difficult to secure a nickname
without stealing one that was used
by another. The Detroiters have been
referred to quite frequently as th
Red and White, which colors have
been born by the university of Detroit
athletic teams for many years. But
after a session scanning all names
suggested, it was finally decided that
the Jefferson-avenue contingent would
be known in the future as the uni
versity of Detroit Tigers.
