' Ring Bouts
. By Bob .
JOIJ GORMAN was given the edge over
Jack Davis, Kid Palmer earned a de
cision over Jimmy Darcy, Ole Anderson
. knocked out Leo Cross in the tenth
' - round and" Roy Sutherland and Al Nel
: -son fought a four-round draw tt Mil
waukle Wednesday night. Gorman and
-Davis "and Palmer and Oarcy went the
'full 10 rounds, i - j ,
For head . spinning, nose ' diving and
general all-around volplaning the fights
.'were unsurpassed.; To these spectacular
features were added enough rough-neck
.stuff (and -cleverness to keep the crowd
In an uproar.
; And in an uproar it was, especially
when Darcy and Palmer began to do
j their rope-balancing act, now falling on
.the inside of the ring, now . tumbling
pell-mell and head-first outside and into
the laps of hapless ringsiders. At times
. this fight looked like a battle royal with
six men lh Action instead of two. The
"boys used on' each , other everything
known in the fight game, including el
"' bows, wrists, -palms and heads, with an
occasional blow; permitted by the rules
i thrown in. In rounds six. seven and
. eight the -boys went through the ropes
as if they had been shot from a cata
pult. At 'least'; one of these wasn't a
plunge the o!e in the seventh round,
when Palmer : knocked Darcy clear
t through the ropes and off. the ring; and
" went behind him for good measure.
Palmer is otherwise a pleasing per
" former, lie is. rugged and willing, hits
,' like the late and lamented Republi
can landslide, and knows how to box and
make the lother fellow miss. Darcy
fanned the. welkin times without num
, ber trying to reach the invader. When
: Darcy didn't miss altogether, his blows
-were either blocked or so - partially
i blocked that their effectiveness was
lost.;- Palmer was never In distress! ap
parently, and more than once Darcy
looked worried.: The decision was dis
, tinetly popular, despite the fact that it
;went against a native, and the fight it
Velf was declared one of the most pleas
ing and roughest eince the historic, days
of Boy McCormick.
Joe Gorman didn't beat Davis by a
mile, but he beat him sufficiently to be
awarded the verdict. The, boys treated
ach other with- arctic-like coldness for
the first -three or four rounds and itb
gan to appear as if the fans were going
to be dished out a frosty main event.
Davis opened up in 'the fifth round and
! from then on the fight was pood enough.
Gorman, nearly went to slumberland in
i the fifth from what he claimed was a
foul, but the referee did not' ailow it. The
j bell came to Joe's rescue and he came out
. I for the sixth in furious mood. Ever
" after that, however, Gorman was plainly
wary of, other low or supposedly low
blows and he took no chances of stand
ing toe to toe and slugging In his old
time fashion. He guarded that stomach
of his as if It had been a cache of rare
jewels. Gorman outweighed Davis by
eight pounds,, but Davis towered a head
over Gorman. Davis surprised the crowd
; by slaying the limit with Gorman and
1-carrying the fight to him during the last
four periods. - Gorman lacked the pep .
. . and Rteam -.with which he fought six
. months ago. He hooked and uppercut
- Davis 100 times, . but. none of the wal-
lop, had sleep or even drowsiness in
them- i "
Leo Cross bit the rosin twice before
Ole "Anderson hooked a-left to his jaw
and put him away. Cross was down in
the sixth for a brief count and went
-down again in 'the seventh for a count
, of nine, " This last wallop nearly ended
the festivities.? Cross was doing well
- enoug.'i until the fatal kick and prob
ably WDuld have been handed a draw
If he Tiad not put his jaw hi the way of
'a wild ! hook. -Cross' - lay-off of a few"
. years has softened him and slowed him
("up and taken away his old-tmie driving
power, 'but he is otherwise as willing
4 and game as ever. Anderson hits hard,
; but he knows no more about boxing than
", he does about astronomy.

Meet Monday
By Jaek Vetoes
NEW YORK, Nov. 4.(I. 'N. S.)
Baseball will undergo a major opera
tion next week, . j ;
The old and ailing government of the
game will be removed to make room for
a new and more popular one. and, ac
cording to indications today, the opera
tion will be accomplished peacefully.
Major league magnates wHl head for
Chicago tomorrow.
Oh Sunday the National league will
hold a meeting there, and on Monday
the club owners of both leagues, includ
ing the five American leaguers who make
up Ban Johnson's faction, will get to
gether to discuss plans for revamping
the government of the game.
President John Heydler of the Nation
al league, with his eight club owners and
the owners of the Chicago, New York
and Boston American league clubs, are
on record as favoring the "tusker plan"
for reorganising'the game. The Johnson
faction has a counter proposition to pre
sent. At Its-recent meeting the latter
faction indicated that it would attend
Monday's meeting in Chicago, and it is
being freely predicted! In baseball Circles
here today that, the major leaguers will
t get together. As a matter of form, Pres
i ident Heydler has today issued a second
invitation to all major league owners to
be present.
Acceordlng to plans, the big league
owners are to chooses two members of a
new board of control for baseball at the
meeting in Chicago Monday, after which
they will go to Kansas City, where the
National Association of Professional
-Baseball clubs the minor league body
is scheduled to meet next Tuesday.
The minor leagues will be asked to co
operate with the majors in establishing
the new government of the game, and it
is expected that they will name a third
member of the new governing body.
This plan will be carried out, it is said,
unless -the Johnson faction has a better
one to offer.
Talk of a baseball war and the forma
tion of a new 12-club league by the .eight
National and three American league
owners has subsided, but in case John
son's faction refuses to attend Monday's
meeting, there is no telling what may
"We realize that a 12-club circuit
would be far from Ideal," said a prom
inent National leaguer today, "
would be vastly better than to go on as
we have been doing."
JtiRt what th attitude of the minor
leae-ne nrtrartixaHnn h a whole will be huskerB look to be in fine shape j and
toward the plans offered by the majora are ready for their clash in the East
is a matter for conjecture. It all deUext Saturday
penas on wnai ine majors nave iu
. . i i . . : .. r .v.. T
"Masker ptan." Others are openiys
against it. A. majority of the" minr
league owners, the writer, is reliably in
formed, are solidly opposed to a removal
of . the old form of agreement between
the majors and minors which permitted
the drafting of players. If a new Na
tional agreement Is signed, therefore, the
minors will have a large sayso in Its
makinsr. Many minor league owners
would be certain to go alotg as they
have been doing since the old agreement
was abrogated. These owners have been
more prosperous in the last two ,years
than ever before. . . .
TKW YORK, Nov. 4. (I. N. H. With
Georges Carpentier scheduled to sail
for France on Saturday, it is expected
that the articles for his proposed heavy
weight championship bout with Jack
Dempsey will be signed tomorrow, unless
Promoters Cochran, Rickard and Brady
have already signed the boxers in secret.
Kearns and Dempsey are scheduled to
return to New York late today from
Montreal, and it was stated at Kearns'
offices here this morning that He is re
turning to be on hand to sign articles
for the match with the promoters to
morrow. Carpentier and Descamps."it is said,
are eager to complete the match before
sailing for France.

SCORING 14 points in the last
quarter, the Franklin high football
team defeated the fighting Jeffervon
high aggregation 14 to 0 on Multnomah
field Wednesday afternoon. It- wu a
far different Jefferson squad than the
one that trotted onto the field earlier in
the season and the Democrats made the
Quakers go their limit to win Wednes
day, Ability to run their plays off in record
time, which put the Jefferson 'team a
little bit up In' the air, was largely re
sponsible for the" victory. When Quar
terback "Chappie" King late in the
fourth quarter saw that he had his op
ponents slightly on the run, he ran his
plays off in rapid succession and finally
Bill Polsen went across for a touchdown.
King goaled.
. With less than 20 seconds left rto play,
Polsen intercepted a forward pass and
raced 75 yards for a touchdowm. Mis
speed alone carried him out of the reach
of the Jefferson representatives.
Polsen did not start the game against
the losers but as soon as he was ejected
