least two of the wrestlers holding
northwest amateur championships

boys have been working hard for
the event, and word from Port

On the main event of the box
ing show will be featured George
Beechler of Salem against Koenig
ef Miltnomah. Beechler is the son
of Dr. O. X. Beechler and is at
tending Oregon State college. As
an Indication of his prowess it is
reported tbat he is to fight at
Conrallis Friday night for the
heavyweight title of the college.
Another of the local lads from
whom much is expected Is "Tuffy"
Hastings, who will box at the 155-
pound weight. He Is reputed to be
good and getting better and cap
able of taking all the punches
thrown his way and always coming
back for more.
In the wrestling department
spectators will get a chance to see
two northwest champions show
how It should be done: Clarence
Grieg, 125-pound champion and
Don Hendrie. 135. Hendrie has
held the northwest, title for four
years. Max Bigby, 145. rnnner-np
for the title at that weight last
year, will also represent Salem.
Gloves will begin to fW at 7:45
in the T gymnasium and the ad

. crowd u anticipated. Clyle Grew-
ell, Salem boxing Instructor, will
referee the matches and Louis
Johnson and Shannon Hogue will
act as Judges.
Pans who expected fireworks
when Al Karaslck and Sailor
Prants got oa the mat together,
were not disappointed. Karasick
won and did considerable "tam
ing" jnst as was promised, and in
one mlxnp Verne Harrington, pop
ular referee,. also "accepted" one
that put him out of commission
for the rest of the evening.
Karasick won the first fall with
flying mare in 30 minutes. In
the second round while Harring
ton was kneeling down to watch
the proceedings, Karasick tossed
Prants over his back a la leap
frog, and the sailor came down on
Harrington's knee, hurting him so
he was unable to continue.
Abe Kaplan was called In; Kar
asick, recalling some unpleasant-
Bess in which Kaplan figured at
some past date, at first refused
to go on, but the matter was ad
justed. Prants won the second fall
In 9: SO with a body press.
At one time In the third round
Karasick thought he had Prants
pinned, and when Kaplan fa 'd
to agree, there was more trouble.
Karasick finally won with a Bos
ton crab In 8:30, and Kaplan fcad
to pull the Russian off to keep
him from breaking Prants' - -k.
Chet Wiles, substituting for
Tom Ray of Seattle, wrestled a
draw with Herman Olson of Port

THE East has a grand oppor
tunity to see one of the great
est of the world's runners in
a new role this season, as Frank
Wykoff, holder of the world's rec
ord of 9.4 seconds for the 100-yard
dash, makes his first appearance on
an indoor track.
Frank appears to be winding up
a long and successful career with a
final fling at something new. This
Pacific coast youth, who was recent
ly graduated from the University
of Southern California, was inter-
eoUectate champion in 1930. 1931
and 1932, and waa the most impor
tant man on last years Olympic

koff declared that the main reason

meets was to get Indoor experience !
that would help him in the coaching
profession he means to take up
shortly. He's going to get married,
too, he said.
In other words, winning the races
ha start! in is not easentaal, as far
a Wykoff is concerned. Of course,
the answer is that no outdoor run
ner, no matter how great, knows
how he's going to pan out on the
boards. Remember Charlie Pad
dock's terrific debut in 1920? Pad
dock hadat lost a race in years un
til he hit the boards, and then he
just couldn't run at all.
On the other hand, Emmett Top
pino never ran indoors until last
season, and he was a sensational
success. As a matter of fact, the
experts give Toppino all the best of
the bargain against Wykoff in the
meets to come. But although Ton-
pino surely can generate more speed
and all the rest that it takes at
fifty yards, the 100-yard distance
may prove quite a different matter
for him before the season is over.
If s just another ease of "you never
can tell till you try."
Wykoff certainly seems to be In
earnest about his marrying-and-settling-down
-to -coaching plans.
And what a record he leaves behind
him! Aside from the titles he has
held, any sportsman's heart must
swell a bit for this young man, who
keot on running despite attacks of
influenza, despite operation that
nearly finished him on at least four
occasions, despite suffering broken
legs twice, and despite any number
oz uign injuries.

has hailed Al Fiteh, of Pasadena (above), as one of the country's
greatest prospects for the 100-yards dash. Paddock's enthusiasm is
shared by such experts as Dean Cromwell and Dink Templeton. Fitch,
who is enrolled at the University of Southern California, was recently
clocked at 9.6 seconds for the 100 yards. .

unusual number of fouls commit

tossed off the doldrums and push
ed Willamette Into a 20 to 21
lead. Linfleld rallied on the
strength of long tosses by Nealy

final gun sounded Just after a foul
