Early Rematch Explained as
"Now or Never" Affair;
Others Wanted it
PORTLAND, Or. July II.
CAP) Robin Reed, of Reeds
port, Ore., defeated Doe Nelson,
ot Atlanta, Ga., In a rough -wrestling
boat her tonight. Ho won
two of th three falls.
Reed won the first fall In It
minutes with a series of whip
wristlocks and finishing with a
flying tackle. Nelson won the
second In 9 minutes with a head
lock and Reed took the final tall
In It minutes.
Matchmaker Harry Plant and
members of the Salem boxing
and wrestling commission pre
sumably beared Individual and
collective sighs of relief Wednes
day night upon learning that
Robin Reed had clung to his
.world welterweight title In a bout
at Portland and therefore was in
position to risk It again here next
Tuesday night against Henry
Jones at the armory.
That Just about completes ar
rangements for the. bout, which
will oecur only 15 days after the
history-making battle for the
am crown which Reed and
Jones waged at the fairgrounds
July 4. winding up In a draw aft
er the pair had engaged in one
of the most grueling mat contests
ever witnessed here, punctuated
with fireworks that put the usual
Independence day pyrotechnics In
Fans, perhaps, are wondering
Why Reed and Jones hare been
matched again so soon after that
unparalleled battle. There are
two reasons, either of which
would be entirely sufficient In It
Reed is billed to wrestle In the
middle west again week after
next, and the date for this re
match Is the very latest that he
could be persuaded to stay here.
It has to be July 18 or neTer.
- And In the second place, var
ious other cities were bidding for
the rematch, egged on by the re
ports of an 8000 crowd here on
the Fourth. So Salem had to get
In Its bid early and make it high
higher than for the first bout.
I Reed this times gets a guarantee

cently while discussinethe strength
of various western dubs.
And t there's ; much m what
Hornsby says, particularly in the
case of Paul Waner who is batting
at a .375 dip and appears to be
slugging bis way to the National
League batting championship, as
. honor he has coveted' since he
. topped . the league ' in 1927, his
second season in the pi? show.
- The sudden surge of the Pirates
in this year's pennant race has
been due in part to Paul's hitting
comeback.- Last year his batting
. fell off to a dangerous degree. His
slums was blamed by .sanr on the
belief that Paul, always a student
of pitching, was try ins to outguess

The fact that the cltr tennis
tournament la under way, with
something like 20 pretty fair
player involved, reminds us of
little sermoa we're been la
tending to preach for a long
Nearly every community: In
which tennis Is played at all, has
an "Inner ring" of good players
and more or less of a swarm of
medium players outside that ring.
And the main reason a good many
of the medium players arent bet
ter than they are, Is that they
don't get Into competition with
the better ones. '
Strange to say, there's only
one way to improve in tennis
and that's to play fellows who
can beat you. All right, you
medium players, a word to the
wise should be sufficient. But
there's a catch. The good play
er doesn't gala anything by
consenting to play those lees
And so the "Inner ring" isn't
much to blame for being that
way. The fact is, playing a lees
expert player does actual harm.
We don't know that the better
tennis players in Salem look at It
from a selfish angle, or even that
the situation la notably prevalent
here. Maybe the best players
wouia piay anybody that came
along, if they found fellows will
lng to play and take the game ser
iously enough to learn.
The reason it's necessary to
play better men, in order to Im
prove, is that a fast pace is the
thing that has to be acquired.
Any lad may learn to drive and
serve and all the rest, but until
he gets accustomed to using his
strokes against a fast opposing
pace, they'll not be timed right
when he does meet such a
