Yes. The man who has had target pralce haa confidence ln his rifle, and himself." That's W. R. Jackson's opin ion and Jackson was recently awarded a trophy by Governor Johnson of California for win ning the rifle championship of the atate militia. "The main argument against the target shot," Jackson said, "is that in action he becomes ex cited and forgets what he learn ed on the riflerange. This may have been true In the past. But modern rifle range practice trains a man against this very thing. A man must learn to fire ten shots at a disappearing target ln a minute and a half at a range of 200 yards, and 10 shots in two minutes and a half at a distance of 300 yards. This necessitates reloading once. To make your hits you must keep your head. "Because of our unprepared ness we could undoubtedly be licked ln case of war," says Jackskon. "This Is because of our small standing army, Its In sufficient equipment and arma ment and concentration of our muntlons factories on the Atlan tic seaboard where they would be easily captured. Our country is filled with men who have never had military training or seen actual aervice. Every citizen should help toward preparedness by learning to shoot." PETER'S sW>' IFFLE *%^c%? Poor Tommy Weßt! He ventured down town yester day afternoon and he onre looked like he needed sym pathy. Tommy's left hand is swathed in bandages and looks like a ham. Four fing ers of his right hand are ex posed. His face is blistered and covered with tender, red skin. Hla angles are so badly burned that he had to wear slippers. West is the popular semi-pro baseball player who was badly burn-, ed some time ago when he tried to light a fire with kerosene. Talk about the funny psychology of prohibition! Everyone thought that the pocket billiard business would flourish, with saloons out of business. But the billiard men report a drop ping off of business ever since Jan. 1. We know a guy who met a fellow yesterday mho said he heard of a man who had liquor on his breath. Where's County Detective Fred Shaw? City Detective Peter D. McKay made a timely remark today. "It's funny," quoth Peter, "that these fellows who need to say they didn't like tho stuff and only drank for sociability's sake, don't hang around the saloons any more." If Frank Farmer and his «hai mud-toothed manager, Sam Howard, go on the vaudeville stage together, as Is reported. It will be easy to guess which little Oshkosh promoter of the two will de mand the spotlight on him all the time.

We believe diagnosing is the easier job. BOXING NEWS Romeo Hagan will main tain his present training quarters. Frank Farmer thinks that the east, even if It doesn't produce as much publicity, la far more preferable to the Northwest at present. Paul Steele, the only one of the bunch who has retain ed his good name (and who says he Intends to keep it) Is getting so many boxing students that he believes he'll have to get busy on his preposed new Athletic club and gymnasium soon. If Eddie Limberg is suc cesHful in winning the squash title will they call him a cheese champion? It is significant that as soon as Willard and Moran were referred to as "heavy weight clowns," Mr. Crack en, a circus man, began to dicker for a match between them. -T Joe Bonds departed for Mon tana last night, after a brief ses sion in Tacoma. He will tour the middle west, boxing Jack Root, the human cheese. * • • Billy Weeks, who is supposed to be in training at Ellensburg, had a pleasant little secret con ference here yesterday with his manager and the referee of the Ellensburg bout.

Stone aald thta the actual loot would amount to more than .$20, --000, Including about 17 fraudu lent warrant* He added that GUltes was to give him ft 00 apiece for the actual (er_peri«f and 10 per cent of the atnoant of each warrant cashed. The claims were split. Gillies waa to cash half, whtle he took tbe rest He said he learned that Olllies was holding out on him and that this led him to confess.

BENJAMIN AND MASCOT MEET FRIDAY NIGHT Paul Steele will leave today for Portland, where Joe Bonja mau, his clever lightweight pro tege, meets Billy Mascot before the Rose City Athletic club Fri day night. Mascot is the boy who recently defeated Tex Ver non. "If there Is any possibility of a smell over the match, as has occurred ln other bouts at Port land recently, I will not allow Joe to go on," said Steele today. "Benjamin Is a clean boy and a clever boxer, and I will not allow his name to be mixed up with anything scandolous. I believe he can beat Mascot. The bout is for the lightweight championship of the Northwest" REW CANNOT BEAT RECORD NEW YORK, Jan. 7. — The worlds record of 70 yards in 7 1-5 seconds held by Howard P. Drew of the University of South ern California, was equaled by Drew last night at the track and field games of the Mlllrose Ath letic association at Madison Bquare Garden. Try as he might, however, Drew could not clip a fraction of a second from his rec ord. Roy W. Morße of this city finished Inches behind Drew. MUST CANCEL FED SUITS CHICAGO, Jan. 27.—One of the details of the baseball peace settlement, which has not yet been worked out, is that the Fed eral league must withdraw all their suits against organized baseball. The stockhloders of the Baltimore Federal club are believed to be hofcling back the withdrawal of the suits, because of their desire to be admitted Into j the major leagues. ELMA HOPING TO WIN TITLE ELMA, Jan. 27.—The boys' and girls' basketball teams of the Hoqulam high school will play Elina teams ln the local gym nasium Saturday evening. Elma lias hopes this year of again win ning the southwest title. The boys' team won their first game of the season from Malone Ath letic club last week by 32 to 9. JOHNSON IS SOFT-HEAR!

Despite the efforts of cer tain promoters ot create en thusiasm over a match be tween Frank Parmer and Billy Weeks in Tacoma, there Is little iKHtsibilltj of the bout.

The two baseball men make no denial of the statement that they have their eyes on the new-Butte franchise. In fact, the Informa tion came to The Times from such high authority in the league that they dnre not deny It. There is little reason to believe that the McOlnnity crowd will handle league Imseball in Tacoma this year, If we have professional ball at all.
