In Next Clash Wednesday '
Newcomer Claims Victories
, Over Wildcat Pete and
jj Yaqui Joe ia Past
- Tonljht Ernie Arthur, middle
weight champion of Canada, will
me$t "Devil Dog" Jackson of Call
i fornla In a scheduled two boor
wrestling match at the armory on
Matchmaker Harry Plant's card.
Arthur has never seen Jackson
r perform and Is planning to take
no chances on stalling around .In
the match. His intention Is to go
Tight but after Jackson. Arthur is
expecting a tough match as Jack
' son has defeated Wildcat Pete and
Yaqui Joe.
; Whether Jackson ever tangled
, with 'a kangaroo or not. he is re
' ported to be one of the best or the
Australian mlddlewelghts. He has
: wrestled considerably on the isl
i and continent and also in Califor
nia and Texas.
,l Ernie Arthur has changed his
style of wrestling considerably
; since first appearing in Salem. He
has now taken up with numerojis
flying holds and a more spectacu
' Ur attack.
' ' He has always been active in
the ring, but has now" come to
rely more on speed than previous
ly. Arthur vied with Reed tor
prodmlnence In the huge wrestl
ing tournament recently staged In
, the middle-west. Robin Reed, the
winner was the only one grappler
who defeated him.
Gives Customers
Plenty of Actios
. i At that time he was forced to
. make 145 pounds at the ringside
' and his best weight is around 149
pounds, at which figure he now
wrestles. He has more reserve
strength at his present weight
than he did when he was forced to
take qff several pounds. --
Though Arthur is not a concert
- of "dirty" wrestling, he employs
punishing holds and gives the
crowd plenty of thrills. He is him
self a tough customer and strong,
being able to absorb a lot of pun
ishment I
Just as speedy and spectacular
a match, though not such a long
one, will be seen In the opening
45 minute bill with Jack Brentano
and Art O'Reilly meeting. O'Reilly
Is well pleased with the victory he
won from "Speed" Weiura here
and the draw with Prof Newton,
In his last two matches staged
However he is meeting a more
experienced grappler in Jack
Brentano and one more capable of
guarding against his foxy stuff.
About the biggest crowd ever
' ' assembled here for a wrestling
match saw the Reed-Arthur boat
and a large crowd is expected to
night as the middleweight shows
prove more popular than the
, heavyweight bills here.' y
Full program of sport events
tonight, marking the end of the
Christmas holidays lull which
wasn't ewch a lull at that. To
night we .have Ernie Arthur
aDd "Devil Dog" Jackson at the
armory, a couple of Salem high
teams playing the boy a from
Woodburn, and' Parrish taking
on Turner high between the 18
lnch hoops.
Ernie explains his change of
style as one that was forced upon
him. He wasn't having much trou
ble stopping the other Canadians
up ' around Trail, B. C, -Toronto
and way points, before his first
trip down here a year or so ago,
but when he got into the big show
back east, he found that the world
had wagged onward and left him
behind. Now he has caught up
again, and his new "stuff" is not
only effective but it pleases the
fans better.
Astoria beat Wood burn 54 to
15 the other day, and tonight's
game here will furnish a basis
of ' comparison between the
Cherrians and the Fishermen.
However, there's little doubt
bat that Astoria could trinT13a
lem high pretty badly now; the
only hope for local fans la that
Huntington will speed his boys
up until they're in state tourna
ment class again.
Had a visit yesterday from L,
F. Thompson, manager of Kim Al
bertson, -recently of Detroit. Al
bertson is a lightweight fighter
and Thompson modestly claims
for the boy that he is the next
champion of the world in that di
Albertson has scored victor
ies over .Babe Herman, Billy
West, Ritchie Mach and Blickey
Dolan, t mention only a few
whose names may mean some
thing to Salem fans
The best news of all is that Al
bertson is going to settle down
right here and work out in Phil
Bayes' gymnasium, and hopes to
line up some fights in the near fu
ture. Salem has been shy a real
i top notch scrapper for lo, these
many lean years, and if Albertson
and the town take to each other,
it will be a great thing.
At the start of a new year, Wll-
amette - university's basketball
outlook is hardly championship
high and Coach "Spec" Keene Is
trying to remedy the situation by
giving protracted practices to- his
squad. Three non -conference
games are scheduled for this week.
The Bearcats have dropped
three games out of four starts
this season and do not look a
great deal more like a basketball
team than they did in the opening
contest, which was incidentally
the one game they took.
The players appeared none too
lively in the long practice held
fefonday afternoon, but did show a
few flashes of life .when a real
Lscrimmage was started.
Even the "Pollyanna observ
ers who are, always picking ine
Bearcats as Northwest conference
favorites, are viewing ' the situa
tion dubiously now' with' Willam
ette's stock resting near second or
third place at best.
Coach "Nig" Borleska has al
most all of his last year's squad
back at Whitman and the Flor
sheim players report' that he has
two teams of about equal ability.
It seems that the renowned Buddy
Applegate, who showed flashes of
good basketball last year, has
blossomed Into a real threat now.
In the games here last March ha
was strong - in every department
except shooting.
The Bearcats do not play any
conference games until the latter
part of this month. Three tough
games are slated for this' week
with, the Ro ebuds of Portland
coming here Wednesday night
Friday and Saturday nights the
Florshelm five will be met to de
termine the city championship.
The Rose' ud team is one of the
best in Portland, finishing higher
In the city standing last year than
the Multnomah clpb outfit. The
Rosebuds have always ranked as
one of the best teams In the state
and Keene' s big boys will have a
tough assignment
Coach Keene is still experi
menting with his tall men to get
a speedy combination. Kloostra
has shown up well this season and
will probably get the call at cen
ter. His shooting Is Improved over
last year, but he still lacks ag
gressiveness In floor play.
Kaiser and Carpenter are show
ing up well at guard positions
and Griffith i3 doing well at for
ward. "Squee" Kitchen is becom
ing accustomed to the Willamette
8 trie of play and should be a valu
able man when he becomes more
used to close guarding.
Come i Tonight for First of I
County League Games
For Holly's men
Tonight the Salem high bas
ketball team will meet the Wood
burn high five on the local floor
in the first game of the season
against av county opponent.
The game, tonight and- Fri
day's game against Bllverton high
here, wlU demonstrate what cal
ibre team Salem will put Into
the field this season.
Woodburn Is in the habit of
giving Salem' close games In bas
ketball and Is particularly strong
on Its own floor. It Is expected
that the Woodburn team will be
playing up to Its best form to
night as it. has been practicing
hard in anticipation of this game.

House concurrent resolution No.
3, approved by the 1931 legisla
ture, merely expresses the opin
ion that there should be a survey
of all state institutions under the
direction of the state board of
control, and authorizes the expen
diture of $500, Attorney General
VanWinile held in an opinion
handed down Monday.
The money required for the
survey shall be paid out of the
regular biennial appropriation for
the state board of control.
The survey would deal prlnci
pally with the needs of the vari
ous state institutions, with partle
uiar reierence to lands, new
buildings,, equipment, furnishings,
Improvements and personnel. It
would corer a period of 10 years
in the future.
- The resolution suggested that
Charles Vasaly, superintendent of
the Minnesota state reformatory,
be asked to assist in conducting
the survey. The appropriation of
3500 Included in the resolution
was to. cover Mr. Vasaly's expen
ses In coming to Oregon.
Other persons required In con
ducting the survey would be
drafted from the present official
and operating personnel of the
The opinion was requested by
Hal E. Hoss, secretary of state.
Parrish Will
Play Turner
Five Tonight
Parrish junior high will bite off
another mouthful of the Marion
county B league basketball sched
ule when it meets Turner high
here tonight.
Parrish has been winner of the
league for two years, but Coach
Brown has stated that he does not
feel so optimistic over this sea
son's prospects. However his team
beat Turner, 20 to 6 in a game
played at Turner in December.
Parrish also defeated the New-
berg junior high by a slim mar
gin in the opening game of the
season, but will probably 'strike
harder going Friday night at
Newberg when the Yamhill jun
iors are met for a return game.
Coons and DeJardin are the
guards on Brown's team and
Wlrtz is playing center.- Salstrom
Stelnke, Carter, Dyer and White
are the forwards of the squad.
None of these have been outstand
ing enough yet to have cinches on
the team. The Parrish Trojans
will meet a suitable opponent in
an opening game tonight at 7

During the vacation period the
Bulldogs took a long trip to As
toria, where the - local team ran
up against a superior team. The
final score was 54 to 15, for the
Fishermen. Although the Wood
burnites were doped to be beaten
before the game, the local team
gained a lot of valuable experi
