erent In. Monmouth witnessed the
four games here today.
In the first afternoon game,
1 Dallas defeated Falls City high SO

the Dallas players and : the out
standing work of LeFors, center,
who scored 12 points. Wilkinson
of Albany was referee.
. Independence Wins
rt The second game was the best
of, ihe day. Independence and

That Portlander Is Ted
Whether Benny Pels, cpedy

of heated argument among the
fans here that Matchmaker Harry
Plant is being besieged with de
mands that they be rematched and
that may be the answer to the
moot question, "Who fights next?"
Such ' &h fight would certainly

to do anything else.

cision Wednesday night, and until
that matter is cleared up, such a
step is hardly justified.
After all, Fox has made huge
strides this season, and the fans
aren't going to expect too much
of him. If he can't get past Benny
Pelz, they will be willing to see
what he can do to Sailor. Willie
Gordon and Kewpie Riley. '
One thing that Fox and his
manager will have to get over is
that "big champion" idea which
apparently was responsible for the
delay In starting the main event
Wedensday. Fox took his time
about getting into the ring, pre
sumably with the idea developed
by Jack Kearns and his ilk that
it pays to wait- and make the
other fellow nervous.
Salem fight fans are used to
seeing the lights follow one an -
other promptly and delay isn't go
ing to prove popular even if it is
classed as "big time" strategy.
