The Salem T. M. C. A. nosed
out a Tlctory in wrestling, 24
points to 22, oTe-r Multnomah
clnb of Portland, and the clubmen
defeated the Y. In boxing bouts,
tthree to two, at the Y. gymna
alnm Wednesday night. A large
crowd was present and received
Its money's worth, as both wrest
lers and boxers went after each
other with everything they had.
Salem's three lighter wrestlers
made a clean sweep of their
bouts, all taking falls, and then
Multnomah came back to win the
last three, but took one by a de
cision, thus losing out on points.
The clubmen scored one clean
knockout and one technical
knockout and gained a decision
in the boxing bouts, while Salem
boys won two decisions.
Highlights Included the wrest
ling bout between Sugal of Salem
nd Hite of Multnomah, in which
Sugai went after his opponent
with a lot of fire but a little too
recklessly and was caught for a
fall; and the first round knockout
which Caputo of Multnomah scor
ed over Bill Tragllo of Salem.
Much Interest was displayed in
the heavyweight fight between
George Beechler of Salem and a
tubby youth named Koenlg of
Multnomah. Beechler earned a
hairline decision by showing
more aggressiveness in the third
round, after taking a little the
worst of it In the second.

TO GET BREAK
First Fight Card In Many
Moons Slated on Friday
Night at Armory
right fans, approaching an
oasis as they trudge thirstily
through the desert of flghtless
months In Salem, are breaking
Into a trot as they come within
view of the first -opportunity to
satisfy their craving for this
brand of sport. Matchmaker Har
ry Plant has decided that the
time is ripe for a revival of fisti
cuffs, and has lined up a com
plete card for Friday night at the
Jackie Klleen, a member of the
Wattenberger family when not In
the ring, will come over from In
dependence to headline the card,
co-starred with Guy Hickman of
Salem. Klleen was a favorite here
when fight cards were a weekly
occurrence several years ago, and
he has thrived In other pastures
during the drought here.
Hickman, strictly a local prod
uct, has battled Kileen several
times and there is no love lost
between them. It is safe to say
that both leather-pushers will be
out for blood and that the sched
uled 10-rounder will not last that
Andy Joerg of Mt. Angel, a
hardy youth who has appeared
here before, will trade uppercuts
with Bobby Ambrose, well-known
Salem boy, In the six-round semi
final. Cy Fluke of Mill City and
Cy Landers of Independence will
engage In a four-round special
event. None of these men are nov
ices at the game.
Out of his extensive list of as
pirants, Plant has selected Al
Smith of Salem and Battling
Slide of Independence for one
four-round bout, while Battling
Jones of Salem and Tom Ross of
Monmouth will provide the curtain-raiser.
Fight fans may have forgotten
the hour at which fight programs
start here, so It is perhaps well
to Announce that the time is the
same as for the wrestling shows,
8:30 p. m.
Just a little more informa
tion aboat these House of Da
vid Collegians the hirsute bas
ket tossers who will come here
Friday night to play the Salem
All-Stars. The starting lineup
will probably Include four six
footers and better and one man
who lacks a couple of inches of
"Red" White, the regular cen
ter, stands six feet four and so
does Marlon Smith, who relieves
White in the tlpoff Job and plays
forward part of the time. Ivan
Buchanan and "Sally" Suddith,
guards, pass the six-foot mark by
an inch; Floyd Johnston, forward,
and Buck Adams, guard, won't
quite reach that level and then
there Is James Davis, a runt at
five feet eight.
That game win be played in
the Willamette gym, and Bill
Kapphahn, who Is tn charge of
arrangements, says It will be
early enough so the fans can
attend It and then get down
town ta time for the fights at
the armory. He hasn't announc
ed the exact hour as yet.
The All-Stars may, and again
may not, put up a close battle
against the Davidites. The Flor
sheims didn't, last year against
the Terrible Swedes. That makes
little difference; the main thing
is that here is a team displaying
the top notch brand of basketball
that is played anywhere, and all
young players, as well as all fans
interested in the technical side of
the game, will want to see these
Dave Wright's Lincoln high
hoopsters In Portland have
served notice that they are com
ing here to the tournament and
are to be reckoned among the
main contenders. Those boys
are big; last year they were
awkward, but they must be a
different outfit now.
