mates here yesterday. Ducky will
he remembered as the lad who
broke up a scoreless tie in the
ninth inning of a game here in
1920. by driving the horsehide
through a hole in the fence tor a
home run. Tradition has it that
the bail went through a knot hole,
but Ducky says it slippVd through'
i place where a board was broken.
This stunt was pulled off
against a Portland team ccrore a

Ducky's feat was the talk of the

Slim will have an opponent on a
Salem card this time who will
give him plenty of trouble. Slim
had an easy time with Jack Dillon
and Bobby Vernon, but can he do
anything with a boy who has a
record of victories over such boye
as Nails Gorman. Eddie Smith
Swede Burns, and Peter Jackson.
This boy Illiagworth was able
to knock-out Bobby Vernon, the

best Slim could do was earn a de

fight know that Bobby was one
tough man to knock out. Illing

The cards say that there will be
plenty of hard punches flying
iround when these fighters get in
the ring together Wednesday.
Another fight which will attract
the crowd is the Terry Kileen

these boys have victories over

immediately after Its sessions.
