Rickard Picks New York
For Championship Bout
NEW YORK, Apr. 17. (AP)--Tex
Rickard returned from Miami,
Fla., today and named New York
as the site for the heavyweight
title bout between Gene Tunney
and Tom Heeney this summmer.
Although no definite date was
set, the bout probably will take
place in the Yankee stadium
Thursday night. July 26.
The promoter gave up all idea
of taking the bout to England,
Heeney's home land, because of
excessive taxation abroad. Rickard
believes the match will draw $1,
500,000 in New York. Although
the gate receipts probably would
be as large in London, with the
mammoth Wembly stadium avail
able, he classed the foreign pro
ject "as too much of a gamble."
Tunney will fight but once this
year, the promoter said, and if
he retains the championship will

CLASH THIS WEEK
By Paul O. Allen
OREGON STATE COLLEGE,
Corvallis, April 17. (Special)
Oregon State will clash with Wil
lamette In both baseball and ten
nis here soon. A two game dia
mond series Is scheduled for Fri
day and Saturday, April 20 and
21. The racquet wielders will
mix April 27.
The Oregon State twirlers lost
the first tilt of the two-game ser
ies played with Columbia univer
sity. 9 to 11, but won the second
10 to 5. The Staters had only
five lettermen in the lineup and
have had only a limited amount of
practice because of the consistent
stay of "Oregon mist" what they
will do when they reach top form
remains to be seen.
R. O. Coleman, varsity baseball
coach at Oregon State, started the
first game with Bill Cloyes on the
mound. Cloyes allowed only three
hits in the first four innings. In
the fifth he allowed three hits and
as many runs and was replaced
by Ashley Paust, who was re
placed by Ralph Hudson, a south
paw, in the ninth. Howard Maple,
receiver for the Orangemen, and
Bergan Belleville, center fielder,
led the Beavers in hitting, Belle
ville getting three hits out of
three times at bat and Maple get
ting two out of four. Maple was
deliberately walked by a Colum
bia pitcher with two men on bases.
Maple was a heavy hitter last year.
Bjontegard pitched for the
Staters for the first four Innings
of the second contest and Bouit
inghouse for the last five. The
batting order of the second game
was noticeably different from the
first. In the first Logan If wa
leadoff man followed by Wood 3b,
Quayle ss, Maple 3, Belleville cf
Remmel 2b, McKennon 2b, Tor
son rf, Marett lb, Bagley batted
for Remmel In the eighth frame
and Aase for Paust in the ninth.
Bagley was leadoff man in the
second with Quayle second and
Belleville third. The other men
in order were Maple 3, Hammer
If, Bauer 2b, Thompson lb, Bjon
tegard p, Boultingbouse p, Cub
The Beavers Infield playing in
the first mix was ragged and er
ratic. In the second game the in-
fielding was improved by at least
100 per cent. The outfielding was
fairly consistent in both tilts.
Eight and three errors were made
in the first and second games re
R. S. "Spec" Keene, varsity
baseball coach at Willamette, will
probably use the following men on
the Bearcat nine, according to re
ports: pitcher, Glen Ledbetter, the
only moundman from last year's
squad; three southpaws, Van Nice,
Satchwell and Retrum, and Ver
steeg and Flock, right handers;
catcher, Kaufman, the regular re
ceiver last year and Cardinal, the
big freshman basketball center,
who is looking good according to
Keene; first base, Welch, regular
last year; second, Adams or Braw
ley; third, Hauk who played with
the Salem Senators last year;
short, Girod; outfield. Mutt Deetz,
leadoff man last year who hit
.370. Other outfielding positions
will be filled by Troxel, Round-
tree, Massey and Satchel.
Tennis material at Oregon State
includes only three lettermen, sev
eral being lost. The lettermen
are George Speros, captain, Dick
McGraw. and Sidney Klahn, who
with fourteen other men are
working out daily in an attempt
to make up lor the late start
caused by the rain. B. T. Slmms,
tennis coach, expects to use five
men against both Willamette and
Reed. The latter will play here
Willamette's tennis outlook Is
excellent with the return of White,
Minto, Litchfield and Haworth,
White was conference champion
in 1926 and was runner up last
year. Several freshmen are show
ing up well according to reports.
Including Hageman, who played
for Salem high last year. Glass,

PORTLAND, Apr. 17. (AP)
The Missions defeated the Port

test. Despite ominous skies, the
attendance totaled 8.540.
The Missions' big inning was the
