for Fair. Events.
The best of the northwest har
ness .circuit is entered in the four
day meet to be held August 9 to. 12

Parker's string of four horses at the
track. These horses, which are be
ing raced under the black and white
colors of -the 'Oregon stables, are

"Vernon and The Obvious.
Barondale was the class of the
pacers in the circuit last year, win

last year and will enter him in the
free-for-all pace and the 2:08 pace
in the Gresham races. Hat Fltz
immons is entered in th 2:24 pace.
This horse paced a heat in 2:11ft at
Salem last year.
The Obvious Entered.
Vesta Vernon, entered in the 2:17
pace, looks better than ever. The
trotter of the string- is The Obvious,
a well-bred horse purchased last
year at Springfield, 111., by Parker
and A. L. Lea. The Gresham races
will mark the first start of The
Obvious on a western circuit.
Will Williams of Boise, Idaho, has

week and the horse had plenty of
speed to spare. W. H. Williamson
of Boise, Idaho, has fiaron Jolly and
Frances Mac entered in the slow
trots and paces.
Horses Trisming In Salem.
Paddy Bond, a. green trotter, and
Mac Fitzimmons, who is pacing this
year, are entered by Ed Dpnnison.
Mac Fitzsimmons, who was entered
as a trotter last year, will start in
the 2:10 and free-for-all paces this
Tom Howatt has Gresham Boy en
tered in the 2:17 and 2:10 paces, also
Hal Girl, a full sister to Hal Boy.
Jack Keener, who took Rags Di
rect to the grand circuit after the
Salem meet last year, is expected
with P. J. Burke, last year's class
in the trots. Tom Brady has L. M.
McK. in the Dakota circuit, but is
expected at Gresham. George Sur
sher is at Salem with Lena Alta
Hall, Oregon Bond and Hallie B.,
who are all entered at Salem. Other
horses training at Salem for the
Gresham meet are Florimel, Francis
Greeting and Nuristo. '
The1 spectacular race of the week ;
will no doubt be the steeplechase
on Saturday afternoon, when a field
of 10 or 12 hunters and jumpers
will be started over a course about
a mile and three-quarters in length,
and containing eight different hur
dles and obstacles, all in plain eight
of the grandstand. ..
According to W. U. Sanderson, who
is in charge of the entry list, the
event will be one of the best steeple
chases run this year in the entire
west. Steeplechasing diminished dur
ing the war and only this year has
shown any remarkable revival, and
the fact that a first-class race is
included in the first local race meet
this year is significant in Pacific
coast racing circles. -
The course over which the hunters
will run goes around the Itaside of
the half-mile track, then onto the
track for a quarter-mile and Into the
fields opposite the grandstand. The
-finish will be on the inside of the
track along the home stretch. The
water jump, which consists of a two
foot hurdle and an eight-foot ditch
of water, is to be placed directly
In front of the grandstand and will
be the third obstacle which the
horses will face. The other obstacles
are brush and rail and all are about
four feet in height.
Some of the hoifces entered are
W. U. Sanderson's Major Dillon, Mrs.
Stanley C. E. Smith's Daisy Deane,
Walter Gearin's Buster, Harry Ker
ron's The Joker and The Comet, Pay
Day and several other horses en
tered by the officers from Van
couver baracks, and two other
thoroughbreds entered by eastern
Scott's Hands Are Like Oysters.
Everett Scott's handicraft in
handling- ground balls is distinctive.
The top-notcher of the shortstops
plays the grounders with bivalve
hands, says the New York Tribune.
Which is to say his hands open as
the shell of a clam with the hinge,
the heels of the hands or their in
side edges, touching most all their
length, depending on the bound of
the ball. If it is ' a ball close to
the ground the edges . of the hands
touch, and the hands are thus ad
justed awaiting the ball. They lift
or descend, according to the hop, and
6hut on the ball like the closing of a
book, but with enough hollow in
them less than the average fielder
to hold the bulb. On higher
bounds, say waist high, the heels
of the hands are more likely to be
in contact, but there's the same
sure, ciam-UKe, beautifully timed
closing down of the hands over the
Japanese Take Up Golf.
The Japanese are taking to oM
with enthusiasm and the nine-hole
course situated in an ideal position
seven miles from Tokio is crowded
morning and afternoon. There are
also courses near other Japanese
cities and the country hotels are
also providing for their guests fn
this respect. The Japanese of Tokio,
however, have now undertaken a
more ambitious scheme and in con
nection with a, country club which
is being built between Tokio and
Yokohama are laying out an, 18
hole course on 112 acres. The plans
of the club house, which will be
the finest in the country, are from

The particular eons of swat, are, Tyrus i-
yobb, Joseph Jackson and ueorge bisler.
Batting reoords are being created al
most annually. Ruth set the mark for
homers last season with 60, while Sisler

a new record.

ST. LOUIS, July 29. (Special.)
The American" league pennant
race, in itself sufficient , to
make the most sophisticated base
ball fan do a dally flipflop, appears
likely to put on an added .wrinkle
and answer that much-discussed
question: "Who'll succeed Ty
Not so many years ago, when the
Georgia Peach reflected the ruddy
hue of his prime, this question of
an athlete capable of stepping into
Ty's shoes when he decided to quit
began to be noised, and gained im
petus as the months wore on.
It was conceded, however, when
in 1911 Tyrus carved the apple for
a. .420 average that nary a son Of
swat for years would go beyond
that mark. By way of proof that
this tremendous batting average
was no mere flash, Ty came back
in 1912 with a grand average of .410.
There passed seven years during
which no American league batsman,
not even the mighty Cobb, was able
to stick his nose above the .400'
mark. But in the interim there had
come into the American league a
collegian, George Harold Sisler. In
1915 Branch Rickey, then manager
of the St. Louis Browns, had plueked
Sisler from the University of Mich'
igari and, be it known, Sisler's com
ing was an event well heralded, for
Rickey Is no man s tool in tne mat

Branch was authority for the
statement that "here was a kid who
could pitch, play the outfield, in
field and if it were necessary don
the mask and pad." What Rickey
censidered infinitely mora to the
point, 6isler could and would hit
.300 or better in the American
league, an assertion that was made
in the face of the fact that Sisler
had skipped the hitherto indis
pensible minor league seasoning
To condense an otherwise long
yarn, Sisler came. Sisler stuck, and
Sisler hit .800, just as Mr. Rickey
had promised. This so pleased the
effervescent Branch that he spiced

the Pacific coast lightweight boxing
champion, will meet Johnny Carlson
of Gold Hill in an eight-round con

sertion that in Sisler he had discov
ered the logical successor to Tyrus
; It was four years after Rickey's
assertion and five years after he
had seen -a major league baseball
park fpr Jthe first time that George
Harold Sisler applied the bum's rush
to Cobb as the champion l)itsman of
the American league. -
Bue Bit Record.
In 1920 Sisler topped the Ban
Johnson circuit with a batting aver'
age of .'407, and in so doing cracked
out 257 base hits, a number never
before amassed in a single season
by any athlete. Cobb, even with a
.420 average, never hit safely more
than 248 times.
This remarkable achievement
seemed to bear out Rickey's asser
tion that Sisler would crowd out
Cobb as the wonder-player of the
age. But in 1921 George was the
victim of a temporary aberration
his average declined to .371, and he
had to turn over the batting crown
to Harry Heuman, Cobb's teammate.
Now this year is something else
again. Here in midseason we find
the indomitable Sisler grinding
along above the .40 mark, leading
by a comfortable margin all com
petitors in the business of making
nits. Ana it is a, fact that if Sisler
continues the pace he has main
tamed thus far he' not only will
shatter Cobb's wonderful .420 aver
age, but will break his own world's
record of 257 safe hits.
Having in mind that thi is the
year in which he can, if he so wills,
prove beyond doubt . that he is
Cobb's master, Sisler was sought
out and interviewed, the idea being
to ascertain whether he was bend
ing his efforts toward such an end.
Pennant Ahead of Fame.
"My individual average is not wor

ries preyed upon my mind to such
an extent that I wasn't myself.
"I was swinging like a barn gate,

slump, I forgot myself to such an
extent that I hit an umpire. They

Staler a Modest Hero.
There's Sisler's personal reply to
the question: "Who'll fill Ty Cobb's
place when Ty's an also-ran?" And
it is strictly characteristic of this
Brownie star. Sisler is the personi
fication of modesty. He is distress
ingly difficult to interview because
you can't- make him talk about him
self. He is reserved to the last de
gree, yet has one of the most mag
netic personalities of any player in
Sis isn't a slashing slugger of the
type of Ruth, Williams, Heilman,
Delehanty and Hornsby. He "chokes"
his bat and seldom, if ever, takes
the full swing characteristic of the
sluggers who get power and dis
tance to their drives. But his stance
and swing are the last word in
grace and he is acknowledged the
greatest left-field hitter among the'
southpaw batsmen today. .
He mentioned in the interview an
interesting anecdote " about the
pitchers he has faced in the AmerU
can league. When- Walter Johnson
was considered in the heyday of his
career Sisler found him among the
easiest in the leagrA to solve. vNow
when many critics want to arrange
a wake for the big Kansan Sisler
says Johnson is the hardest pitcher
for him to hit safely. He ean t ac
count for the turn, either.
It will be recalled that Sisler came
into the American league a pitcher,
which position he had filled with the
Michigan Pine., Rickey . decided,
however, to use him in the outfield,
and when Sisler left the pitching
mound Clark Griffith, remarked:
One ef the mast promising left
handers I have ever seen has gone."
But Sisler's stay in the outfield
was short In 1915 Rickey tried out
15 candidates for first base. Each
was a failure. Desperate, Branch
bought a first-sacker's mitt and
laced it around Sisler's wrist. He
told him to play the bag. Sis, at
last accounts, was still playing it.

tried out today at the Eastmoreland
Golf club course.- This was bus
gested to the Eastmoreland officials
through an article by . Jock Hutch
son appearing in a recent issue of
Hutchison says there is no better
way to absorb golf then by observa
tion of the methods used by various
players. The stylist is the first to
be considered and player who
wants to see good form should al
ways seek one with reputation for
hitting a ball easily and gracefully
and try to learn his secret. This
sort of information, says Jock, is
free to all and the cheapest way to
get golf lessons.
So in order that the duffers play
ing at Eastmoreland may remedy
their faults they will get a chance
to see how it should be done this
afternoon when six of the leading
players of the Eastmoreland club
tee off in an exhibition. The six
players are John Rebstock, Walter
Mackie, Roy Moe, Frank Dolp, Harry
Kyle and A. A. Kaufman. It would
pot be putting it too strongly to
say that these six young players
also are rated among the topnotch
ers in the city. -

SALEM, July 29. (Special.) A
new ruling in regard to purse
money goes into effect this fall at
the Slst annual Oregon state fair,
which opens in Salem September
25, in that, differing from previous
years, the entry fees collected for

cent of the purse will be charged
horsemen to enter, 1 per cent Sep
tember 1, 2 per cent before starting.
All entry money Collected will be
added to the purse, with no deduc
tions from money winners.
et Returns Worth While.
When it is figured that from 15
to 30'.horses are entered in a single
event, it will be seen that although
the regular .purse . is somewhat
slighter than heretofore, the - net
returns are deeidedly worth trying
for, and most satisfactory to all
Entries for the races closed July
IS. A fine showing is to be made
this year, with horses with fast
records coming from all parts of
the west, including British Colum
bia points. Many of the older horse
men, whose names have become
common on the state fair grounds,
through their many years' partici
pation, will be here again, including
Tyron, Harden, Merrill, -Swisher and
Thursday la Portland Day.
On Thursday, Portland day, will
be" featured the Alexander (Dad)
Grant memorial race, a 2:20. pace.
In this way horsemen are endeavor
ing to show their esteem of the
veteran turfman, who died in Salem
last February. All entry money in
this pace will be paid to a commit
tee of horsemen, George L. Parker,
chairman; Fred Johnson and J. E.
Montgomery, for the purpose of
purchasing perpetual care for a
cemetery lot and erecting a suit
able monument In memory of this
well-known horseman, who died
without funds sufficient to care for
these expenses. . It is . anticipated
that every horseman will wish to
have his name added to this list.
Horses Work Out.
Large numbers of horses have
been working out since the first of
May, with additional fast material
coming In every week. The track
is being given the most careful and
intelligent working and it is prom
ised that it will be in the best
shape passible when the week of
the state fair rolls around.
Purses range this year from $360
up to and including $1000. In the
running races purses will be di
vided on a 70-20-10 per cent rating'.
The bigger purses, as heretofore,
have, been scheduled for the two
biggest days,- Wednesday and
Thursday. Nevertheless classy
events have been arranged for the
earlier and .later part of the weekJ
so that those who are unable to
attend during the mid-week are
assured of keen competition and
fast races on all other days.
Most of the horses in training in
$alem will leave shortly to begin
the circuit at tne uresnam tair,
which opens August 8: The Linii
county fair ends the circuit, com
ing immediately after the state fair

TENNIS STARS TO TRY AGAIN
Women Racquet Wielders to At
tempt "Comeback" on Courts.
Miss Mary K. Browne and Mrs.
Ma? Sutton Bundy have decided to
attempt the, "comeback" which they
narrowly missed last season in the
women's national championship
tournament on the turf of the West
Side Tennis club at Forest Hills, L.
I. The former champions, accom
panied 'by Miss Helen Wills, the 15-year-old
girl who won the national
title in her class, have made for
mal entry for the American classic
scheduled to begin Monday, Au
According to information from of
ficial headquarters it is also likely
taht Miss Elizabeth Ryan, the Cali
fornia girl who has been playing so
ably in Europe for several seasons,
will test her skill in her native land.
Likewise, there is .the prospect that
Miss Kathleen McKane, the English
girl who has created such a furore
abroad, will come over. Possibly
one or two other of the English
players may make the venture.
This decision hinges somewhat
upon the plans of the British Isles
team coming to this country . for the
finals of the Davis cup series. As
the programme stands at this time
it Is probable that the women's
championships will represent an in
ternational contest for the titlejield
by Wrs. Molla Bjurstedt Mallory and
the Wissahickon cup. which now
bears the names of Mrs. George, W.
Wightman and Mrs, Mallory.

Babe Ruth Temperament
Nevertheless It bat Preventing
Htm From Game Try at Home
Run Rivals, Says Metzger.
BY SOL METZGER.
WHAT is temperament? Byron
Bancroft Johnson, in banish
ing Babe Ruth for conduct familiar
to most umpires, stated that the
worry incident to this star's long
absence from the game and in
seeing others . fill his accustomed
place as King of Swat, was having
a temperamental effect on Bambino.
Yet If Babe's temperament Is de
teriorating to his batting eye Me
would like to assimilate seme of nis
spleen. In the first month of his
rampage this season, weighed down
by fines, inactivity and an Immense
handicap to spot others, the Bam
bino was hitting them where they
ain't .with the same exacting regu
larity as he smote them for a like
period during his best season last
The only fair way to get a line
on Babe is to await the fall of the
curtain at the end ef thin season.
Then, by comparing his fence-clearance
record of this year with the
past as per number of times at bat
in ea&h instance, we can learn if
the swatter reany is suomg back
ward. We are inclined to believe
that Babe's swan song is a long
way off and that the premature
hintings that it is about due are
similar to the dirges sung about
Cobb and Walter Johnson for the
last half dozen years.
Babe is temperamental. Who
Isn't? But his good nature is cer
tainly helping him over the rough
spots that usually clutter the paths
of most high-salaried performers in
Masters of a game's fundamentals
do not always win. The perfect
shot maker dubs his drives and
flubbs his putts. Tilden was as
adept at etroke execution and foot
work in 1917 and 1920 as last year
or this. But he did cut come
through. First. Lindsay Murray
and then Bill Johnston muddled his
thoughts and got him off his per
fect game. Murray piannea io jump -Tilden
when they met for the title.
And he did, Johnston, noting the
wisdom of this move, followed it in
1918 with marked success. He fairly
drove Tilden off the court In the
first set. That settled the title.
In 1920 a different and wiser Til
den faced Johnston, one who out
guessed the latter from the start.
Johnston, figuring that Tilden
would think he would play him
under different tactics, decided
again to jump Tilden. Tilden had
figured the same way and added
spice to their meeting by deciding .
to jump the man who planned to
The first set of their match for
the national singles championship ,
stands as the most dazzling and
brilliant of tennis annals. It was
over like a horserace. Both men
turned loose their top tennis from
the start. They fairly burned up
the courts and each other. But Til
den walked away with it to the tune
of 6-1 in the remarkable time of 9
minutes. He made & clean sweep of
the match thereafter and has held
a mastery over Johnston ever since,
except on asphalt, Johnston defeat- -ing
him on this form of court in
California this spring.
Johnston did not reach the finals
last season. But the signs point to
a come-back on his part this year.
Each possesses two of the needed
three legs for the championsnip
cup. Little Bill is reported also to
be in better condition than in years.
He is greedy for a final conquest.
All signs point to another sizzling
opener should the fates decree they

Most of our golf "Instructors are
up against trouble. They are at
tempting the impossible. Their
slogan is to take an easy, graceful
swing and never to slug. But their
pupils cannot adapt themselves to
this creed when the facts are
pounded in at every national title
event that the winner came through
because of his long range. It's hard
to convince the average dub that
the practices of Hagen, Barnes.
Guilford, Mitchell, Ray, Ouimet and
Herron are at fault when the story
of an open or amateur championship
has been digested.
A crying need in golf today is In

JOHN BUFF'S SUN IS SET
KNOCKOUT BY JOE IiYNCH IS
BliOW TO BANTAM.
Little Fellow, Still Flyweight
Champ, Named After New
Jersey Fire Station. -
Johnny Buff's sun has set as far
as his future in the bantamweight
division is concerned. His technical
knockout at the hands of Joe Lynch
the other night drew the shades over
that sun. '
But Johnny is still flyweight
champ and still rates as one of the
best little boys in that division.
Buff is one of the few men in the
game who can really make the fly
weight heft of 112 pounds.
Buff has already made a bid for
fame by licking Jack Sharkey, Mid
get Smith and Abe Goldstein in fly
weight bouts when he tackled
Frankie Maston, February 11, 1921.
This lS-round battle was billed as
a championship and Buff won the
decision handily in 15 rounds.
Abe Goldstein was the only fly
weight to dispute Buffs claim to
the title, sq Johnny took him on and
knocked him out.
Buff had just passed 32 when he
lost the bantam title to Joe Lynch
the other night. Johnny was born
in Perth -Amboy, N. J June 12,
180. His parents are Austrians. It
is told that Buff's father, a eooper,
once worked in the same shop with
the original Jack Dempsey. Johnny's
real name was Johnny Lasky, but he
drew the "Buff" nom de plume from
the fact that he hung around the
fire station- which - folks usually
called buffs in Johnny's neck of the
It was in the fire house in Gam
montown, a tenement and factory
district in the lower east eide of
New York, where he has lived for
years, that Buff learned boxing. But
he didt enter the professional game
until he was 26 the age when most
fighters are slipping. Buff got his
ring start while serving in the navy
during the war. He won the bantam
title of the Atlantic fleet. His first
pro bout was on his return to civil
Ian life and as a substitute against
Rocky Walker, September 23, 1921.
Buff beat him and Mickey Russell,
his next opponent. These bouts gave
jonnny his start.
Buff won the bantamweight title
from Herman .when put in as a sub
stitute against Pete a year or so
ago, when Roy Moore, booked to
tackle the bootblack, was unable to
go on. Buff won the decision and
crown in the 15 rounds that night.
