The OKEGON STATESMAN, Salem, Oregon, Friday fllonung, September 13, 1929
v Soma of the boys and girls la
the office said oar alleged wise
crack about Doe .willing was the
worst they: aid ever! read. We
didn't think It was so hot oar-
Bat eve tho might? slip mp
occasionally. We read In the
C. J. that the principle' woald
be' Introduced from the ring,
steaming perhaps the Ideals or
the manly art wonld be ex
pound edi
And the Oregon Journal had
tiro nearly identical stories about
a reception for the Gyro Cards on
the sport page. One of them said
Dill Barbarlno, couch, was circa a
wrist watch. Bill probably appre
ciated that.
Also, we take exception to In
timations made in the C. J. that
the boys on Warm Springs In
dian reset-ration take no baths.
Why, the young bucks ap there
rut holes in the. See in winter
time to go swimming, la
Dovkhobor. We're seen 'em.
s Remember a few weeks, ago we
began to get worried about Ikey
White's junior tennis players beat
ing as some day? Well, we bad an
awful scare Thursday. We went
outl and - played doubles with a
'youthful-partner, against two of
- these kids. About the time' we
were behind -1, we began in
Quiring who our opponents- were.
"Why, that's Beall and Gies,
city doubles champions," we
wero told. They didn't quite -beat'ae
after all, bat it wan
rlose enough o we don't feel
equal to giving jthese juniors
much advice. Excepting this
nearly , all of these kid arc
wasting too much effort trying
to master trick strokes which
aren't any good after they are
learned. Pace is the only thing
that gets anywhere in tennis.
For the last four seasons, any
way, Salem has had no independ
ent football team; so far as we
know, there never has been such
a team here. Wonder why? The
Portland league would like to take
in a Salem team this year. There
are plenty of ex-college and high
school players to make up a good
squad. It would take a little fi
nancing. Maybe somebody will
tart something.
Xotice where Clarence Mnr
pfay, who pitched for the Bend
Kagles last yettr part of the
t into and stopped the Senators
in the final championship game,
gets a chance with Sacramento
next week. He pitched for the
Bead Elks this year and lost
only two oat of 10 games.. We
aw him pitch m dowbleheader
couple of weeks ago, and he
Is good.
Three Eye league season is over
and we expect to hear that John
ny Beck Is back with the. Ducks
pretty soon. He has been going
good back la the corn belt.

' The semi final bout between
Ted Hegoway and Soldier Baker
was putrid. For the first two
