Coast League

With the opening of the playing
season bringing- the test - of the
diamond on the other side of win

northwest hare raised a chorns of
rejoicing the burden being that
the southern clabs of the Pacific
coast league fared less well than
their northern foes In lining up
players In Chicago last week.
: Clark Pettenger, reputed a live
ly- shortstop who was obtained by
Salt Lake City team . when it re
linquished Paul Strand, champion
hitter of the league, is cited as a
leading instance. Hopes are held
out for the performances of Tony
Lazzerd, from- the Three Eye
league; Hensel Hulvey, from the

brought Cliff Brady to Seattle.
Northern ; writers declare that
southern clubs were so busy fight
ing the battle of William H. Mc
Carthy, whom the minor leaguel
arbitration board refused to seat
as president of the coast league,
that they to some extent neglected
their own interests.
Bobby O'Dell, Jockey,
Says Sande Best of, All
Bobby Odell, a jockey who is
well known on the Central v cir
cuit, comprising Kansas, Colorado,
Benrasha, Oklahoma ' end Texas,
landed In Salem yesterday frem
Canada where he has been . for
several months, end left again last
night by automobile with a friend
for Ashland, 4he first lap" of a
trip to Tia Juana where he hopes
to ride again soon.- Odell says he
never . has ridden in a race with
Earl Sande, but he is well ac
quainted with the world's premier
jockey and says he ia the cleverest
and sqnarest jockey he ever met.
"Sande Is different from most
of the jockeys," aays Oden. "As
soon ' as the race is over, he is
away, and , doesn't : hang . around
with the other - boys, and doesn't
have anything to do with their
gay parties. - If he can't ride
square. , he' won't , ride, that's all
there Is to it. He wins it he can,
and if he sees 'a hole as "big as
your hat, he is going to try to go
through it. He always looks his
horse over before a race and if
he doesn't! like the way he is
rubbed down, Sande rubs him
down himself."
Odell last saw Sande at the big
derby at "Lexington, Ky., - where
Sande rode Zev to victory. Odell
is a native of Indiana. He has
ridden such well known racers as
Evelyn Thaw, Unconcerned. Way
, Behind and others. , He rides at
102 pounds, but just now weighs
115. In Canada recently he ias
kicked by t a horse and received
some fractured ribs that may make
it difficult for him to get back
into the racing game for awhile.
Besides racing he . has followed
carnivals and circuses es a con
tortionist, i He started as a news
boy, and says he has gone .back to
It several times. '
"I landed An Salem with 3 cents
In my pocket," said Odell. "I hope
to get back on my feet pretty
soon." fi : l jv . -r ...

has requested that seats be re
served for himself and three
members of the Portland commis
sion. : iv-j,:..
After trotting over the land
scape for many miles, knocking
the stuff in out of wo punching
bags and more or less crippling up
several of the local boys who of
fered to lend a hand out of civic
pride, Big Bill Hunt, Salem's su
perdreadnaught In the squared cir
cle, is confident that he will gather
in the posies tonight - when , he
meets up with Eddie Richards, a
heavyweight slugger from Port
land. ''.
Matchmaker . Burris announces
that he has made everything ready
for the big go at the armory, and
that if either : of i the heavies
breaks a ropeor pulls down a ring
post, some somebody in that ring
is going to get terribly walloped.
From a close-up of these two hefty
gents, they seem to be in very good
condition. ; Of late they have been
"knocking our Bill around" con
siderably, but on this festive oc
casion. William . has decided that
someone else has got5 to drop and
that if Mr. Richards feels he is en-
to Call and
' ' ' 1
titled to more than four rounds in
good condition he must show the
folks something he never showed
before in the way of defending
himself. ' v -
!, Just to give the fans a little ex
citement in the way of some fast
going, there has been included on
the car a six-round affair between
Willie Murphy of Salem, and Bud
Taylor of Portland. These lads
are lightweights, and the dope
sheet shows both of them are fast,
foxy and gritty to the nth degree.
While looking about for a pair
of likelies to fill out the card from
the standpoint of. the fan who en
joys seeing plenty of rough going.
Matchmaker Burris ran onto Brick
Buchanan, of Independence,' and
Jim Robinson, of McMinnviUe,
both welterweights. While ; the
fighting pedigree of these out-of-town
boxers might ' be a ' trifle
short, past performances . advise
one that Brick and Jim really
crave to knock somebody out when
they show up in the ring. Witb
this in mind, together with the

Here When He Amves
Colonel W. B. Bartram writes
to a Salem friend from his home
in Ottawa, Canada, that he will
come to Oregon shortly after the
first of January. 5
f Salem' people Interested in! the
Industry, an! others, will remem
ber Colonel Bartram as the man
who brought the Canadian flax
pulling machine to this district,
and 'remained tilt it was demon

Colonel Bartram is connected
with concerns in Canada, that
grow f lax on ' a large scale, and
also own and operate a large spin
ning and weaving plant. ; j
He is convinced of the highly
advantageous position of the .Wil
lamette "valley, and especially o(
the Salem district, for the devel
opment of a spinning and weav
ing plant -a linen mill for the
making of the . finer, grades of
goods, and he has been making in
vestigations along , this line. He
had an idea when he left Salem of
perhaps interesting a group of
Canadian and New York capita
lists In such a project here..
How far along he has been able
to brlcg this project, he does not
say in his letter; but he does say
this: "I hope to see the state
