POSTPONE FARMER
MATCH TO FRIDAY
A ni is" nil rst and ing on the
part of Frank Farmer over his
scheduled match with Fighting
Billy Murray, which was to heve
takeu place at tillde rink tonight,
caused a hasty conference last
evening and a postponement ol
the match until Friday.
Farmer hud come to Tacoma
from Wisconsin last Wednesday.
Sammy Howard, his manager,
had not yet arrived from San
Francisco.
Farmer went to Orting, and
then continued on to Kapowsin,
where lie had been stopping with
friends, whlllng- away his tlr.ie

the wire did not say anything
about the date of a match.

Frank Farmer offered a
swell compliment to the
sporting writers of Tacoma
when he said that he didn't
know he was matched for a
bout here tonight. Even If
his manager hadn't told him
about the fight, he couldn't
have missed it had be given

Lots of things happen ln
March. Seed-planting, spring
training, outdoor athletics
and the Willard-Moran bout.
Although you musn't blame
March for the latter. It's
been dohig its best to juggle
the bout onto April.
