It's already "In the bag" that
the record crowd of the winter

main event. The police hare been

In Salem streets.
Between the excellent purpose
which prompts the benefit and the
intrinsic attraction provided by
, the bout itself, it would not be
surprising if the crowd turned out
to be the biggest that has ever
witnessed a grappling show here
with the exception of course of
the outdoor championship bout
last, summer, and possibly the one
which followed is the armory.
Perfect Setup for
Loral Fan Interest
Here is Des Anderson, a boy
who began his professional wres
tling career here, and was pop
ular with everybody even though
at that time he was not highly
successful in winning bouts; now
. returned, a full-fledged veteran of
the padded arena, with numerous
worthy achievements to his cre
dit. And against him appears Hen

has not lost more than three
matches in all his long series of
appearances at the armory and
a world champion in his division,
though the title will not be at
stake tonight; yet always cordial
ly disliked by Salem fans. It's al
most a perfect setup.
Word has been received by
Matchmaker Harry Plant, Ander
son is in the best of condition and
that the injury he received when
tossed out or the ring at Seattle
several days ago was nothing to
hamper him in his bout with
Lyness and Gray
To Furnish Opener
The one-hour match which will
precede the main event is also one
of promise, bringing Ray Lyness
here for the third time in recent
weeks, against Fred Gray, a new
corner. The appearance of Lyness
on the card carries a certain sig
nificance inasmuch as Anderson is
renewing his activities here, for
he was Anderson's first ODDonent
when the grappling game was re
rived here in the fall of 1929.
Although the police are selling
tickets, persons whom they do not
reach may get them as usual at
Lytle's and the Bligh Billiard par
lors or at the ticket window at
the armory. The show will start
The benefit show was planned

Has Beaten Silverton, Some
Of Portland's Best in
That keen but friendly, rivalry
between, Salem high school and
Chemawa Indian school will find
expression again tonight when the
basketball teams of those institu
tions meet on the Salem high
floor. B teams will clash at 7 p.m.
and the A teams Immediately fol
lowing, probably at 8 o'clock.
Chemawa has enjoyed an out
standingly successful season to
date, defeating several of the
Portland high school quintets, in
cluding Benson Tech, last year's
Portland champions. Since playing
those teams Coach Lea La Veil of
Chemawa has been forced to re
vise his lineup slightly due to loss
of Hatfield, center, by graduation;
but has kept on winning games.
The Indians are so far undefeated.
Shoulderblade, Zunde. Dogeagle,
DePoe and Amera may form La
Velle'a starting lineup.
The Indians gave Salem high a
hard tussle last year, and appear
to be much stronger this season.
They won from Silverton which
has defeated Salem; but that was
with Hatfield In the lineup, and
also Vivette. who was retired from
competition prior to some of the
games with Portland teama, be
cause of a ruling on his years of
participation. That game with 811
rerton is to be played over.
Coach Hollis Huntington of Sa
lem high has also lost a center,
Morley having been scratched off
the list, for several weeks at least.

week. Engle filled the position sat

Willamette freshmen last week.
though it was an entirely new ex
perience to him.
Salem's starting lineup will
probably be Kelley and Winter-

Brownell and Masher, guards.

Flit' CLOSE HIES
By RUSSELL J. NEWLAND
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 23.
(AP) Dipping back 14 years In
to "the good old days," directors
of the Pacific Coast league today
voted to return to 25 cent and 40
cent baseball as a means of com
batting present times and condi
tions. The representatives of the eight
club class AA circuit reached
their decision after wrangling and
orating for five and one half
hours in a session that saw all
agreed that something must be
done but considerably at variance
as to how to do It.
They finally agreed to a mini
mum admission price of 25 cents
for bleacher seats and 40 cents
for the grandstand. As a conces
slon to those opposed to reducing
the ticket cost, it also was de
elded to make the prices optional
with the various clubs, so long as
the minimum or over figures were
While no official expressions
were forthcoming, it was learned
the sentiment amongst the own
ers is that every club will swing
into line at the minimum prices.
It was pointed out If the two San
Francisco clubs scaled the tickets
at the minimum figure, Oakland,
across the bay, could hardly ex
pect to hold to a higher price.
Directors of three of the clubs,
Tom Turner, of Portland; Lew
Moreing, of Sacramento, and Wil
liam Klepper, of Seattle, were
said to have opposed the price re
duction when the meeting opened.
Turner and Klepper swung over
and finally, about the time for
the dinner bell, Moreing acceded.
Once, when the arguments flew
high and wide. President Turner
of Portland, shouted: "Let'a tear
down the fences and pass the
Joe Bearwald, president of the
San Francisco Missions, led the
drive for a reduction of prices
with the admonishment: "It's
better to try anything once. If we
don't cut prices we may have to
cut out baseball."
CHEMAWA, Jan. 23. It looks
as though Chemawa Is coming to
the end of the rope in basketball.
After winning a long string of
games by large scores the Indians
barely nosed out Oregon City,
which was beaten by Benson Tech
40-16. Benson lost to Chemawa
twice, and every Indian on the
squad was used in those games af
ter a lead was acquired.
The reason for the end of the
rope is loss of two high point men,
who made three-fourths or more
of the points in the season so far.
Against Silverton in the only tight
game up to Oregon City, these two
made 3 9 points between them, and
were being especially checked.
The victory rope probably will
be scissored tomorrow night by
Salem high's up and coming team.
Chemawa's starting lineup will be
composed mostly of first-year
men. Only one of the five has had
a year's competition. This is the
remainder of a squad of veterans
cut down by disciplinary meas
ures, graduation and technical In
eligibilities. Coach LaVelle has
plenty of reason to be singing the
McDonald G .
AST month when the official
National League pitching
averages for 1932 were re-
' leased, the leading huxler, accord
f ing to the figures was young Lonnie
Warneke of the Cubs. Lonnie won
the most games, twenty-two, and
also compiled the best earned run
i record, allowing 237 runs per
Warneke is a fine young mounds
' man and all that, and his 1932
pitching record is very impressive
even if he did prove to be just an
other "cousin" to those murderous
Yankees last FalL Just the same,
many shrewd baseball men are of
the ooinion that the best hurler in
the Heydler circuit last year was
not the young Chicago (linger: ac
cording to them the outstanding
moan daman of 1932 was none other
than the very Dizzy Dean, of Saint
Loo and Texas. I don't need to tell
yon that this is Dizzy's opinion also.

ords, and while Warneke's looks

record shapes up Just as Impres

The Chicago ace won twenty-two
combats with a pennant-winning
outfit, while Dis copped eighteen
victories while toiling for a seventh
Slace club. - And Dean's won and
st record would be even better if it
were not for the fact that for a
spell last season the crippled condi
tion of the St. Louis pitching staff
made it necessary for him to pitch
every other day. Dean worked
more Innings than anyone in the
league, totalling 286; he hurled the
greatest number of shutouts, four,
and he chalked op the greatest num
ber of strikeout victims. If that
record doesn't entitle him to the call
as the leading National League
pitcher of 1932, you'll have to ar
rue it out with Diz.
When Dizzy was trying to earn
a regular berth with the Cards this
Spring, he did plenty of boasting
about- nis hurling ability, and
Jimmy Wilson ealled him a fresh
"Mebbe so." Dean came back.

He is exceedingly popular with the

Dizzy's right name is Jay Hanna
Dean, but on the record books his
two front handles are listed as
Jerome Herman. He changed his
original name because he didn't like
the sound of it.
He says that the toughest batter
for him to face is Lefty O'Doul of
the Dodgers, and he names Babe
Herman, the Cubs' new prize, as
the easiest for him to pitch against.
Diz is looking forward to another
big season in 1933, and if the Cards
do fairly well he will have a good
chance to win 25 or 30 games, what
with his pitching skill and his iron
man proclivities. Watch him go
next season, lads.
