ence in strength 'between the two
teams is greater this year, but good
basketball play is In store as Pacif

at least one game.
Coach Keene will start his reg

eral substitutions if his men suc

Whether Edwin Cardinal can
collect 20 points and go into the
conference lead in points scored
per game over Croxdale. Whitman

ST. LOUIS. Feb. 21. (AP)
Ed "Strangler" Lewis, jubilant to
day in his triumph last night over
Joe Stecher. pledged himself to
any outstanding challenger
for the heavyweight wrestling
title, anywhere, anytime, a suit
able offer was forthcoming.
Billy Sandow, his manager, re
ceived numerous offers, one of
$20,000 from Chicago, for a match
with Hans Steinke, the ponderous
German. Steinke is recognized as
the world's heavyweight champion
by the New York athletic commis
sion and has been seeking a match
with Lewis ever since he became a
threat in the heavyweight ranks.
Stecher and his brother-manager,
Tony, were not discouraged by
the defeat, but they protested
mildly over the decision of Harry
3. Sharpe, the referee, in awarding
.he third and deciding fall to Lew
is. One of Stecher's legs was off
he mat and the other was en
' angled in the lower rope of the
ing when Lewis clamped his rice
ike grip on Stecher, forcing his
ihoulders to the mat.
Tony Stecher said the men were
supposed to go to the center of
he ring and resume a standing po
sition if they went to the edge of
he ring or became entangled in
.he ropes. He said the fact that
Joe's legs were waving in the air
ver the edgo of the ring and the
opes, made it impossible for
ilm to defend himself because he
ould not put his feet on the mat
o bridge. 1
The match was not such a
lreary show for Promoter Tom
acks after all, although the slow-
moving, cautious bout did not pro-
luce many thrills for the spectat-
irs. Although no official figures
.vere available, it was estimated
.he receipts were around $60,000
o $63,000, with a crowd estlmat
id at 6,500.
Lewis was reported to have re
eived 30 per cent of the net with
i0 per cent- of the net going to
Stecher. It was figured that under
his division Stecher might draw
Iown $29,000 with $19,000 going
The consensus today was that
he match was hunestty contested.

PORTLAND. Feb. SI. (AP).
For the second time within two
months the Portland boxing com
mission today called off one of
its scheduled fight cards at the
armory with so little adTance
warning that word of the post
oonement barely made the late
editions of afternoon papers.
At 2 o'clock the word suddenly
came from boxing" commission
headquarters that the Herman
Auerbach-Georgie Dixon fight,
and the whole supporting card
had been put off for one week.
The reason for the commis
sion's action was the illness of
Herman Auerbach. He caught a
"flu" cold in training and there
was danger of pneumonia if he
fought. He was examined by Dr.
R. L. Sabin, member of the com
mission, who postlvely forbade
him to fight.
