EVERETT AND TACOMA IN
CHAMP GAME TODAY
Backed by more than 400 root
ers, the Tacoma High school team
Journeyed to Everett where it
meets the fast team from that
city in a game which will result
in the dropping of one of the two
from the rare for a championship.
Both the team and coach believe
that Tacoma will be returned the
victor although the fight will
probably be the hottest of the sea
son. Everett papers come out
with rahid articles declaring that
the team will "get" Deegan and
Coblentz and then win the game.
Two ma, however, has 21 men of
nearly equal caliber. Both teams
are confident and both are look-
Ing- for a hard game. The Ta
coma team is in the best shape It
has been this season and will play
U. P. S. CLASH WITH
The hottest game between two
teams of the game city which
Tacoma ha« Been In years la look
ed for this afternoon when U. P.
S. and Whitworth meet In the

one game chiefly In view and
there is the greatest of spirit be
tween the two schools. This U
the first time the teams have met
in two yearg and they had hard
work getting together this time.
U. P. 3. la handicapped by the
barring of two star backs and

FRAUD IN FIGHT
FOR RACE TRACK
(By United Press Leased Wire.)
SACISAMENTO, Cal., Nov. 3.—
Forgery, fraud and perjury liave
at the eleventh hour been reveal
ed as important elements in the
■MWteg of a big initiative peti
tion on i><■!■:• 1 f of race track gamb
ling in California and the dis
trict attorney of Bacramento
county, the grand jury and the
state uttorney are to be called in
to action in the case. The measure
now appears killed beyond all
linpe of the race track and allied
interests who are estimated to
have spent more than $500,000
in promoting it thus far.
Had the promoters not sent out
a circular letter to everyone
whose name appeared on their pe
tition the fraud would never
have been discovered. It was
only when the foreman and a
news writer on the Sacramento
Star received these letters and the
5,545 signatures for Sacramento
county were gone over In the of
fices of Secretary of State Jordan
that the forgery and other ap
parent frauds were revealed.
Publication or the facts in the
first case brought la wholesale
complaints from other citizens
who had been similarly notified
that their names were listed at
having petitioned for the race
track betting plan.
Friends of direct legislation
take satisfaction in the fact that
it appears to have required whole
sale fraud to place the first nota
bly vicious initiative measure
upon the California ballot.

SHORT SPORT NEWS
"The race at the Glide rink Monday night ought to be a corker.
Reindeer Bill, the humorous track navigator, says he will be on
hand to start the race. He says nothing about the finish.
Harry Thoren, a reporter from California, walked from one end
of the continent to the other. Most reporters walk nearly that far
Whitworth and U. P. S. will keep the stadium hot when they
clash. There is some feeling between the two schools and polite
ness will hardly be the main point in the minds of the players.
Interest In the game between Tacoma and Everett High schools
is smeared all over the two cities, for one strong team is going to
be dropped from the race.
Coach Doble will not worry much about his Saturday game
with the U. of Oregon. Eugene High school defeated the 0. Thurs
day, while the Washington team is getting stronger every day.
Broadway and Lincoln, the old time rivals for the city champion
ship of Seattle, meet today. Both teams are crippled by the
loss of two players, but Broadway has two men who are now eligible
to play and will help to make up for the loss of the others.
W. W. McCredle Is In hopes of the Northwestern league getting

the point, however, Its just a case of whether or not the league gets
