The announcement of Tom Lou.
tltt as the third man in the ring
for all events, was all that was
needed to make tonight's fight
card outstanding in Its promise of
being one of the most interesting
of the year. Loatitt knows the
game from A to lizard and his de
cisions don't go wrong once in 'a
blut moon; but more important
than either of those qualities is
his faculty of making the fighters
fight, whether they are naturally
Inclined that way or not.
There is little likelihood that
Loutitt will have to prod any of
the boys along tonight, for each
bout will find a well known boy
In at least one of the corners, and
not one of them has ever quit.
Phil Bayes has satisfied himself
that he is in shape, and has an
nounced to the wide world that
there will be a knockout some
where in his fight with Eddie
Edieman., Local fans who saw
Edieman fight in Portland Tues
day night report that he put
plenty of action into his scrap
with Jimmy Keyster of Seattle. It
was a draw.
Jack Kentworth, local boy who
Johnny Trambitas, also made a
good showing in Portland Tues
day night against Prank Warneke.
They went at a terrific pace for
six rounds to a draw in the semi
final. Some fans may think two
days' rest isn't enough for Kent
worth, but they aren't taking in
to account- his youth and tough
ness. It's a safe bet that he will
be at his be3t tonight against
Trambitas. Kentworth has im
proved by leaps and bounds since
Buck Perry took charge of his
The fans here are still a little
skeptical about Pat Dundee, but
they all admit he carries a vicious
wallop. If Frankle Brltt Is going

Progressing Well During
Spring Practice Workouts
The introduction of spring foot
ball at Salem high school, prac
tically an innovation in the realm
of high school athletics, is proving
a complete success, reports Hollis
From 15 to 20 aspirants, in
cluding three lettermen, have been
turning out regularly, and the
work will continue until the boys
get spring fever, the coach an
nounced Wednesday. Fundamen
tals are being emphasized in
This turnout is remarkably
good considering that so many
football men are prevented from
turning out because they are en
gaging in spring sports. Hunting
ton is hopeful that his football
squad will be larger next fall than
those of past seasons have been.
Encouragement toward this end
is provided by the better facilities
made available through the Im
provement of dinger field. Last
season it was impossible to line
up two elevens for scrimmag?

Fred Oass, League President
Holds Against Senators
in Baseball Row
The protest of the Salem club
in the Oregon-Washington base
ball league on last Sunday's game
with Mount Scott, on the basis of
a decision in the eighth inning
when Coleman's hit was ruled out
because Umpire Mason had called
time, was overruled in a decision
announced Wednesday by Fred
Oass, president of the league.
"I looked this play up thor
oughly and found no rule saying
that the umpire eould not call
time out for this," Oass wrote in
announcing his decision to The
"However, before making a fin
al decision I called in several men.
long identified with the game and
totally disinterested persons, and
they were of the same opinion as
myself. One of the men whom I
took into my confidence was none
other than Judge W. W. McCredie,
who I think all will agree knows
baseball from all angles.
"It is very unfortunate that the
thing came up and I will say that
it frequently does. The same iden
tical play came up in the opening
game of the Pacific Coast league
here when pitcher Knight was in
the act of throwing the ball and
one of the umpires called time.
"My answer is that the protest
is not allowed and I hope that my
decision will cause no biter feel

case and hope the Salem fans will
feel that they were not legislated

To Be Next Hurdle
The second game will be against
Linfleld College at McMlnnville
Friday. Willamette won from Lin
field 9 to 3 in a mud soaked game
here several weeks ago, and is
likely to win again.
Van Nice, who pitched good
ball last season but was unable to
get his "stuff" working early this
season, finally has his specialty
under control, and will probably
start today's game, giving Led
better a much needed rest.
If Willamette wins both of these
games, Coach Keene will take his
squad to Walla Walla Sunday to
start the series with Whitman,
winner of the eastern division,
early next week. With Van Nice
pitching acceptably and Ledbet
