MORE ring strategy than had ever been uncorked by one
i fighter before in a Salem ring was trotted out by Chuck
Borden of -Eugene, to win an easy decision from Jack Kent
worth of Salem in the main event of a rip-snorting program
-at the armory Friday night . - vv c
Borden made Kentworth tie himself in all -sorts of cur
ious knots in an effort ta hit an effective blow; The home
fans kept hoping all through that Kentworth would manage
it, but he never did. They were sure if Kentworth landed
sauarely just once, it would
be curtains for the former
Los Angeles scrapper. That
began to look like a doubtful
promise before the fight had
gone tar. but It never was tested

OLYMPICS TO STAY PUT
Matter i$ C i vie, Not International Affair
LOS A N G E
By ALAN J. GOULD
.Associated Press Sports Editor
NEW YORK, April 6 (AP)
In spite of recurrent suggestion to
the .contrary, there is no prospect
nor, at present, even the remotest
possibility that the Olympic games
of 1932 will be shifted from their
chosen site of Los Angeles.
Although this award was made
and officially accepted several
years ago, the impression has be
come rather widespread that the
games merely, were given to the
United States as a nation and that
the bidding for the athletic car
nival is still open. Chicago and
Baltimore entered the lists and
now Philadelphia Is a seeker, on
the ground that "protests" of for
eign, countries against traveling
so far. may. force the games' away
from the California city. .
'The, fact is. however, that the
Olympics were. awarded specifical
ly, to Los. Angeles and that there
Is no. chance : of their being held
anywhere, else- unless Loa Angeles
voluntarily gives them up. - Far
from having the slightest thought
of doing so, the . California . city
already has made big strides in
formulating plans for the interna
tional event. Its representatives
were -at Amsterdam last summer.
absorbing atmosphere, informa
tion and forming contracts.
There usually is some alarm', in
advance of the Olympics, quite a
little doubt existed as to Holland's
ability to conduct the games. The
Dutch experienced temporary fi
nancial difficulties, but in the end
Amsterdam furnished as business
like and adequate a setting for the
1928 events as any since the
Swedes did so thorough a Job in
1312. And Holland reaped a tidy
profit to boot.
Each set of Olympics Is award
ed, usually about six years In ad
vance, to a specific city, not to a
country to do with as It may see
fit. Los Angeles, therefore, could
not transfer the games to any oth
er American ' city even It It was
decided they could not be staged
on the Pacific coast. The decision
would go back to the international
committee, which would consider
the bids all over again.
No award of the 1938 games
has yet been made but Madrid,
Berlin, and possibly Rome, will
be among the foremost contend
Since track and field sports are
the blue ribbon feature of the
Olympics. It seems particularly ap
propriate for Los Angeles and the
Pacific coast to.be hosts. The far
west has outstripped all other sec
tions of the country in "light ath
letics," as . Europeans caH them.
Pacific coast teams have run off
with the bnlk of national and In
ternational championship honors.
with Stanford, California and Sou
thern California turning out a
flock of stars. The far west's
Olympic champions have included
Paddock, Smitbson, Kelly, Houser,
Barnes and King, not to overlook
the fact that California has the
Olympic championship crew and a
school of swimming stars who
have registered several dosen
points for Uncle Samuel.
