FOR NORTH RACES
BY DICK SHARP.
Portland boxing fans will have to
travel some miles out of the fair
City of Roses if they care to witness
any mitt-wielders in action for the
next two months at least.
George Moore, manager of the Mil
waukie arena, announced yesterday
that his club would remain darkened
until Labor day, a decision having
been reached by the members of the
Milwaukie commission at a meeting
. of that body in Milwaukie yesterday
not to stage another card until that
date at least.
In the meantime Matchmaker Frank
Kendall and George Moore are not
letting grass grow under their feet
and have feelers out to Boy McCor
mick, lightweight champion of Eng
land, and the only Bnglish boxer who
las invaded this country in years that
has not proved a flivver. McCormick
IS perhaps the most popular boxer

made his debut before Portland fistic
fans. He is at present in England
trying to force Georges Carpentier

likelihood of such a bout being
brought about Kendall Is- of the opin
ion that they can .prevail upon him
to return to America in time to meet
the best boy available at the Mil
waukie arena Labor day.
Bout la Unfortunate.
The unfortunate O'Dowd-Ortega af
fair Friday night kept the fans on
the buzz yesterday and for those not
on the inside it is hard to see the
exact proposition. A book could be
written about the various angles that
presented themselves and there would
still be something not made clear.
Kendall and Moore did everything
in their power to prevent the mishap
but could not ward it off.
It was the referee question and that
only which was the reason for calling
off the card. Tommy Simpson btood
pat in that he wanted Denver Ed
Martin or Jack Grant'to referee, while
O'-Dowd signed with the distinct stip
ulation that Martin was not to ref
eree. The Milwaukie commission gave
l'aday Mullins a list of four names
outside of Martin who were eligible
to officiate, those being Mike Butler,
Stanley McDonald, James J. Rlchard
on and Herbert Greenland. It nar
rowed down to three men, as Richard
eon is in California. Mullins finally
ereed to take McDonald on the
strength of the recommendations.
Mullins took McDonald with the un
derstanding that he was agreeable
to Simpson also.

After all the principals were at the

ary and if the referee could have been
straightened out Moore stated that he
would have gone through with the
match if it had cost him another $5000
on top of what he had lost on the
card during the Shrine convention.
His stand is entitled to consideration,
for if he had wanted to call the show
off to save money he could have done
eo in the first meeting of Ortega and
O'Dowd, when there was a deficit of
over $5500 in the house and he knew
it long before the .match started.
O'Dowd at the time offered to call ,it
off but Moore stood .pat and took his
medicine. The Friday night affair,
if it had gone through, would have
been a loser of more than $2500 or

Paddy Mullins and Mike O'Dowd
left for New York yesterday -morning,
two regretful men. Both seemed to
be sincere in that they were sorry
that such an occurrence had to come
about and said that they hoped some
time to repair the incident. Mullins
also manages Harry Wills, the giant
colored heavyweight, who meets rrea
Fulton in New York next Thursday
night. Mullins landed the match for
Wills the day before he left for Port
land and has to be back in time to
handle his boxer.
Among those well known in fistic
circles on the Pacific coast who were
on hand for the scheduled O'Dowd
Ortega match -we're: Fred Winsor,
discoverer of Jr ck Dempsey and pres
ent manager of Bud Ridley, his "Little
Dempsey," who he says will be the
next bantamweight champion of the
world; Jimmy Duffy, Oakland light

title; Billy Williams of Seattle, f fir

PROMOTER CHARGES ORTEGA
OF BEING AFRAID OF MURPHY
Tommy Simpson Likewise Declared to Have Declined All Overtures
Looking to Such An Engagement Leonard Go Causes Flurry.
. BY HARRY B. SMITH.
SAN FRANCISCO, July 10. (Spe
cial.) Frank Lawlor, who helps
promote fights at Dreamland rink
as well as manage divers ecrappers,
is trying to wsrk up a bout between
pud Murphy and Battling Ortega, the
Oakland middleweight. Lawlor'a
propaganda consists largely of the
assertion that Ortega is afraid of
Spud and that Tommy Simpson has
declined any and all overtures look
ing to such an engagement.
As proof, Lawlor has been waving
a letter that reached him one day
from a Seattle promoter in which
the promoter explained he had been
anxious to stage such a bout but
Simpson had replied there was noth
ing doing; that he weighed 170
pounds and was too big for Ortega.
"Ortega never did want to fight
Murphy," says Lawlor. "As to weight,
Simpson knows he is exaggerating
when he makes such a statement.
Just to prove it, I put Murphy on the
scales this morning and he weighed
172 pounds, clothes and all. Spud
can and will make 168 pounds for a
championship fight and he will do a
weight for Ortega that is reasonable.
But I'm afraid Ortega will continue
to dodge the issue."
It's quite up to Simpson. now, if he
wishes to keep the argument before
Reports of the Leonard-White fight
in Benton Harbor have caused the
fight fans to sit up and take notice.
They are wondering whether Leonard

indicate that White was doing the

that Leonard looked the more tired of
the pair and that White might have
taken down the newspaper decision

about as clever a fielding second

games for the Cubs with his stick

with his fielding.

prospective fight between Georges

put him in condition. But unless
Charlie White, the veteran, is a lot
better than I can possibly figure is

The big thing of course is that
Leonard won and that he won ao de

Some time ago Kruvosky incurred
the displeasure of the powers that be
and was ruled off. Later the officials
relented and Kruvosky's first match
was against Harlan Bunker, and he
put up a good fight.
Then he signed with Walker, who,
as a heavyweight fighter, is a good
watchmaker. Kayo was winning all
right enough, but he didn't fight with
the vim that he usually does and so
far as his vicious left was concerned,
it might as well have been tied to
his back. Irwin warned the men and
later stopped the bout, indicating that

I had a talk with Kruvosky later.
He claims there was nothing wrong;
that he had been told to outbox
Walker and let it go at that. His
excuse was that Walker outweighed
Mm 30 pounds at least and was there
fore a dangerous opponent.
The excuse was a good one for just
about a round. After that Kruvosky
should have sailed in.

Unless things go "just so" he is likely
to fidget. Perhaps we may call thi

But that's a story for another day.
On one occasion, when I was in St.

to spend the morning on the
road. I walked to a lake about three
miles from my home. My intention
was to walk part and run part of the

the black cat myth but?
Suddenly I decided that my road

started home via a roundabout route

I approached the forest a powerful

More Rigorous Test, Requiring Good Tee Shot, an Iron and Putter

which" is the bet
ter of the two
should be other
than it usually is.
In the case of
Gardner going down befora Tol
ley the extra hole was a short
affair a tee shot with an iron
being ample to place a fair golfer on
the green. Now while an iron shot of
this nature is a test of golf, I do not
think it marks the difference between
two men of equal ability over a 36-
hole course. That test should be more
rigorous, a more all-around one, one
that should bring into play more dif
ferent strokes. . -,-
Short Hole Argued.
I, for one. think that when matches
are squared the tell-tale should not
be a short hole, but one. say, of-400
yards and up, that would bring into
play a moire rigorous test, requiring,
as such a' hole does, a good tee shot,
an iron and the putter. That would
remove . the one objection to extra
hole matches, which I believe Is an
important one. v . .
Now. I am not setting this down as
an alibi for Gardner. What is fair for
one player is fair for another. But it
seems to me that while a committee
is abroad discussing the rules of golf
that it might do well to consider this
point. All of which leads to other in
cidents in match play that have a
bearing upon the subject I have just
proposed as one needing attention.
Let us see ' what has happened in va
rious extra-hole matches. Perhaps I
might frankly become a post-mortem-1st
at the outset.
Extra Hole Necessary.
Back In 1911 the .late Fred Herres
hoff was badly out of luck in losing
to Harold Hilton in the amateur. At
one time Hilton was six up and 13 to
go, only to have Fred rally and, by
dint of magnificent pluck, square the
match dVi the home hole.- An extra
hole or so was necessary. In this
case it was a two-shotter, and Hilton
sliced his second so badly that it
struck well into the rough. Luck was
with Hilton that, day, for the ball
rebounded from a friendly rock and
landed on the green close to the cup.
As a result Hilton won the decision.
But how much better it happened on
a two-shotter than or . a o.i.
