Rose City Smoker
t one of the best Bmokers ever
staged in Portland -Al Sommcrs and
Billy Mascott, both well known in Sn
Jcra, emerged victorious from . their
bouts. Mascott boxed the headliner
with Karl Conner, of Tacomn, and won
tho decision of tho judges after six fast
Tounds. The "triple umpire" system
was used instend of a single referee in
ihn riner as there was some dissatis
faction with the work of Referee Jack
Ia this bout the boys agreed to fight
themselves free from the clinches and
this made the bout slow and Mascott
did not show up as the tast boxer inai i
he has in former bouts where the ref
eree forced a clean break. Mascott
was clearly entitled to the decision,
however, though Conncrs showed him
self to be a fast boxer and willing to
mix it at all times.
The feature bout of the evening was
the six round go between Valley
Trambitas and Al Sommcrs at 158
p - unds. The big Doys stepped into it
from the start and wasted no time in
clinches. It was slam bang from the
tap of the gong and the fans witnessed
a rare cxhibiton. The first two rounds

Trambitas, who Tenehed out with a vol

round. The last two rouuds were easily

well received.
Danny O'Brien won a-decision over
Paul Steele, o'f Taconia, which caused
the crowd to howl their disapproval of
Refereo Grant's decision. O'Brien and
Steele are both keen scientific boxers
but the worst that should have been

To Military Service
is that, whether a youth comes from
the poorest or richest, he must be what
ever his ability makes him.
The rich man's su may remain a
private all his life while the sou of a
poor man in the neighborhood may be
his military superior.
Only a democratic army like this,
military men in Europe say, is safe
and strong. There is rottonness and
fatal weakness in an army where bo
cial position and wealth avail.
In Chiasso, Switzerland, I saw the
clerk in Luigi Cortl's grocery store
out on the sidewalk in his sergeant's
uniform, just as the son of the village
banker went by in his automobile. The
banker's son saluted l.ugi's clerk, be
cause the clerk's uniform indicated
that Lugi's clerk was a better man, as
a soldier, than the banker s son.

Looking over the armies of Europe
which I have seen, i am led to believe
that the American military system is
the worst ot them all.
It's a dangerous system, with lend
ership based upon many other things
than ability.
It is permeated with politics. From
this distance and this place, it looks
like a papier mache revolver that will
make the other fellow shoot but that
can 't be shot itself.
It, isn't the fault of our standing
army or of our army men. It's the
fault of the American citizen, who
doesn't realize that he isn't the
straig'itest shooting, finest musceled,
best soldier-material in the worm.

The local postoffice continues to re

quently, somebody is looking for a letter
and there is no one to blame except the
writer. A letter addressed "Mr. Oscar

ter address. If any one happens to
know where school district No. 0b, West
Point, Oregon, is located, they might
outer a faver by wru.ng the "nixie"
man at the Salem postoffice, for he is
the man who lays awake nights trying
to get mis-uirected letters on their way.
Another letter was addressed ".Miss
Violet Shepard, Brooklyn, near 20th
street." That also is too much for the
nixie" clerk, and the letter is now
held up for better directions. Also, 11
letter addressed to "Miss Elaine
Brown, 840 Military street, Salem, Ore

cheerful for the postoffice employes,
