Termination of the football sea
son ' among high schools of Ore
gon except for the possibility of
still another "state championship"
game has left the followers of
high school sports free to turn
their attention to the basketball
season, soon to open. " -yy -
In contrast to football, which Is
poorly organized throughout the
state with the result that It Is al
most impossible to determine At
state He, baske ball Is horoughly
organized, and Salem is vitally In
terested in the intersectional ri
valry . for the reason s: that the
championship games are played at
the state tournament, held for the
past eight years at Willamete unl
versity there. . - ,v
Word has "been received here
that the winter J meeting of the
State High - School Athletic asso
ciation will be held at Portland
December 30, at which time plans
for the, 1928 tournament, will be
outlined. " 1
It Is practically assured that the
tournament will; be held at . the
Willamette university -gymnasium
again iu March. This was prom
ised a year ago. -on the vondltion
that-the universjty, proved Itself
able to finance the'event properly.
; .Through the united . support of
Salem people and the action of the
university; authorities In Increas
ing tbe seating -capacity of the
Willamette gymnasium, the tour
nament was suceesf ully finonced
out of gate receipts alone, no re
quest being made to townspeople
to assist other than In paying ad
mission to the games.
Further than that, the visiting
teams were accorded every possi
ble courtesy, Willamette students
taking charge of the teams and
looking after their welfare while
in the city; and the conduct of the
tournament wa declared to have
been perfect, due to the coopera
tion between Physical Director P..
S. Keene of the university, and the
officials of the state association.
Following the tournament, it
was indicated that it would be
held here again next year, and that
there was a possibility its scope
would be; enlarged. To obviate
the necessity for any team's play
ing two games the same day in the
championship series, 1 was sug
gested by officers of hie associa
tion that the tournament be held
on four days, beginning Wednes
day, Instead of starting Thursday.
Action providing for this change
will probably be taken at the meet
ing in Portland.
Another problem of manage
ment was the drawing of teams for
opponents, j In past seasons the
tournament! has lost Interest be
fore the final game, for the rea
son that the strong teams met
earlier and here was no strong
competition for the final game.
This did not happen to be the
case last March, when Salem and
Eugene high quintets drew places
on oposlte sides of the bracket so
that after eliminating all of the
other teams, they met in a thrill
ing battle for the title, which Eu
gene high captured.
In : an effort to avoid an anti-
Climax such as bad occurred in
previous . years, officers of the
state association proposed to make
the drawing under the plan of
seeding" which is used in the big
ger tennis tournaments, the teams
from the two districts which pro-'
vlded the: winner and runner-no
the previous year being "seeded"
on opposite sides of the bracket,
In such way that they should not
draw any; "byes.?
Itwas believed that this would
be a handicap to Salem and Eu
gene high quintets Insofar as it
would be unfair to any; but after
they had agreed to it, several
other schools protested, -with the
result that : the plan was not foW
The officers of the state associa
tion, however, believed that the
plan had merit, and are expected
to bring It up for adoption at the
meeting in Portland this month.

vec x. (AP)--A baffling series
of plays from regular formations.
wttn occasional long forward pass
es, gave Medford high' school a 44
to 0 Tlctory over McLouahUn h!h
here today in Oregon's first high
school championship football
game. Medford scored two touch
downs In each of the first, second
and third periods, and one in the
final peTlod. - " $
While the game was not recog
nized, as an official championship
contest,; It Assumed much of the
appearance of a title tilt.
Medford was never threatened
seriously by McLougblin. exoent
n the first period when the lo
cals pushed the ball lover Med-
Xord's goal-line, only to hare Ref
eree Orion rule the play a fum
bled punt. In the third and final
periods Hufford and Kreigerwere
successful in pushing the ball Into
Medford territory, but the advance
carried little threat. -
Five - plays from 'the kickoff
found Medford crossing the goal
line with the first score. Itarrell
went over" after a 45 ard run to
the McLoughlin five yard line.
Later, Harrell scored again after
Moore ran 60 yards , through
broken field before he was over
taken by the fleet footed Hufford.
In the second period, Swanson
sprinted 63 yards for Medford's
third counter, and late in the same
period. Day, from mldf leld, made
a beautiful 20 yard pass to Mt
Donald, ' who made a whirlwind
dash , to goal. The score at half
time was Medford 26, McLaughlin
Long runs by Moore, Day and
Gamett were the outstanding fea
ture of Medford's lay In the third
and fourth periods of the game.
McLaughlin high opened up and
completed several short passes,
and at one time, Hufford broke
away along the sidelines, for a 3 S
yard gain. Kis team mates, howi
ever, were unable to meet the Sit
uation and could notald hlfir in
bearing the burden of the" attack.
Thus, their scoring chances failed.
The Medford line worked beau
tifully on the offensive, making
possible long gains by the back-
field. McLaughlin's," best gains
were made on end runs and on
passes, ; Hufford ""and Krteger
standing out as stellar perform
ers in this work. Hughes, Gawith
and Garber played the strongest
line game tor the losers. The en
tire line on the Medford hlgVteam
palyed an outstanding gameeach
man covering himself -wltbglpry
on the offensive1, and on defensive.
The day was perfect"and the field
fast. A crowd estimated at 2.000
saw the game. '
HDL DAY HQOP
MAY KQT DEVELOP
A letter from Jimmy Richard
son In California to Coach "Spec"
Keene yesterday put something of
a damper on the prospects of lin
ing up the barnstorming trip tor
the Bearcat hoopsters during the
Christmas vacation. , Richardson
said that colleges in ; that state
were loath to schedule games during-
their vacation periods and of
fer guarantees when the chances
of a playing crowd were not
bright. Many of the schools, too,
he said, will disband their basket
ball teams for a week to observe
the holidays, f.; -i -'1:' i
Keene intimated yesterday that
he might call the trip ' off, but
would , not know definitely'; until
next week. Five games are already
arranged for with town and club
teams. ; i 7 . 'j
If the trip talis to develop," no
practice games will be scheduled
tor two weeks yet. Fundamentals
were being stressed last week and
will be next week, until tbe men
are thoroughly schooled in Keene's
system. ( , ; I - 4; :, -

Disagreement among boxing
fans as to whether Stanley Frye
should continue as fight referee
on future armory cards has led
Harry Levy, chairman of the box
ing commission, to call a special
meeting of that body Monday noon
to consider the matter.
The difficulties arose at the last
card, when Frye awarded tbe
semi-windup bout to Terry Klleen
over Maxle Pels, a decision unpop
ular to the fans, and so displeas
ing to Manager Jack 'Wagner that
he held up the main event thirty
minutes, refusing' to let his other,
charge, Benny Pels, appear in the
main event even under, another
referee. Only when Joe , Levy,
Portland matchmaker, told Wag-
ner "he was through In Portland,"
If Pelz did not go in, did the main
event take place. j
The future support of Salem,
cards. Levy believes, depends upon
choosing a referee satisfactory to
all. fans. The commissioners have
praetlcally decided upon Tom
Loutltt, of Portland, whoserved
here last year. Loutltt has a ring
personality which commands - re
spect' and shades all fan dissatis
factions with, decisions. His deci
sions were well supported last
year. Ralph Maeon is also under
consideration for the Job.
Frye's work as referee on past
cards has been regarded as fair
and Impartial, but so fickle are
fight fans that; one mistake often
may throw the skids tinder an of
ficial. A change, under the clr-i
cumstances. Is considered by the
commission as highly desirable.
