me La Grande baseball club' has
had ita first try-out games and, al-
mougn losers, local rooters are not
disappointed greatly. Though perhaps
not entirely sportsmanlike to bring up
excuses for two straight defeats, still
there are eo many reasons why the
locals should not have won that they
are worthy of attention. The ralne of
lost week prevented a single practice.
That, in Itself, Is sufficient to defeat
any aggregation. Manager O'Brien
expected to find Beck at Pendleton,
but u disappointed, and a general
shaking up followed on the grounds.
Infleldera were lacking and outfield
ers were substituted.
Saturday's game was a to 0 affair
la favor of Pendleton. That game
stiffened the soft muscles of the La
Grande playera to such an extent that
the Sunday performance was anything
When the smoke had cleared away
the Pendleton Pets had scored 14 to

player In which both went to the
ground ' and Healln waa severely
choked and a riot narrowly averted,
