Manager McCredie Discusses
Reasons for Defeat.

Although Definite Arrange-
ments Are Not Made.
The remnant of the Portland baseball
team of 1905 drifted Into town yester
day morning. They number four and
ivkh the exception of Mike Mitchell,

addition to Mltphell. Manager McCre

Siiess came un from California. Van
Buren and Callff were on the same
train, but the former dropped off at
Sacramento for a few days with Jay ,
Hughes at duck shooting, while Callff
l'ft the train, at his home In Oregon
City. Esslck and Sweeney were Inclined
to come North, but changed their
minds later and returned to their
homes in the East. Jake Ate will prob
ably Join the local colony of ball toss
ts as soon as the post season series
between the Los Angeles and Tacoma
teams i concluded, for the little short
stop likes Portland and has written
Manager McCredie. requesting him to
make a deal with Morley to get him
back on the local club.
When asked about the recent trade
with Morley whereby he traded Atz
and Schlafly for Flood. Smith and
Toren. Manager McCredie said:
"I think 1 secured the best of the
deal, for ihe understanding Is that the
trade does not go junless Tim Flood is
reinstated next eason. By this trade
J secured three star players arin gave
only one. for I do not consider Schlafly
a valuable man because he Is too fond
of carousing. He and one or two
others of the club were responsible
for nearly every game we lost in the.
South. In was simply disgraceful, for
they not only threw me down, but
their own teammates as well. I con
sldor Tim Flood the best second base
man in the league, and I believe that
Prcsldont Bert will withdraw the
blacklist when he Investigates the clr
cumstunccs that led up to the assault
"I do not believe in countenancing
rowdy baseball, but I think Flood has
been nunlshcd enough for the offense.
Jud Smith is a cracking good third
baseman,, and the way Sweeney played
the position of shortstop during the
last few games stamps him as a very
good man. I don't think he comes up to
Atz" standard as a fielder, but neverthe
less he is equal if not better than any
of the other men at that position in the
league If Flood Is reinstated. It Is
likoly that I may arrange a trade with
Mo.-lcy in which McLean or Smith, or
perhaps both may be traded for Atz.
"It is too early yc.to determine dofl
liltoly on any plans, for my uncle and
myself may rotlre from the game In
this city, which is our Intention unless
ome arrangement Is perfected where
by we secure the holdings of Mr. Ely.
It .is absolutely Impossible to get along
with that man. and no manager on
earth could keep harmony on his club
with a man like him connected with
he running of the affairs of the club.
One or the other of us must get out."
A meeting of the McCredie" wing of
the Portland Baseball Company will
be held In this city Saturday, providing
. hptil Judge W. W. McCredie concludes
the session of court over which he is
now presiding, at which some definite
decision an to their course In baseball
'lll bo determined upon.
McCredie also spoke a good' "word
tor Callff and Suess, the youngsters he
took South with him. In reference to
Ci.Mrr. McCredie stated that he would
not take $1000 for the services of this
young pitcher, and says that he thinks
that he Is the equal of Bobby Keefe in
overy particular. McCredie also antici
pates great things of Pete Lister, the
new first baseman, who is to. join the
club In the Spring.
Another piece of news the local man
'ager brought back Is the fact that the
league has decided to reduce the length
of the playing season. McCredie says
thai from what he has heard from the
othr magnates, the season of 1936 will
not start until May. and will be con
cluded during November.
far as to say that tbe l&aky Auetr&Haa bt
doing entirely too sues roa work, but
with his years of experience, tit should
certainly know what is needful and what
he can stand.
As to the hands that hrr struck o
many sledge-hammer blows, there Is al
ways a doubt as to whether they wiu
stand, but the long rest they have had
has undoubtedly been a help. Another
thing that will be greatly in favor of
Fltz Is that the armies or agreement al

wants in the way of bandages. In most
articles of agreement for contests under
the Marquis of Queensbury rules only
soft bandages are called for and allowed.

and he is aware of the fact that he now
has a chance to make good and seems to
be bending his every effort In that dL
Tracey-Zubrlck Mill Tomorrow.
The Tracey-Zubrlclc bout scheduled
for Vancouver tomorrow evening. Is
attracting more than the usual amount
of Interest among the local sports, and
judging- from the comment about town
there will be a large gathering of the
local sports at the ringside when the
men enter the arena. Betting Is about
even at present, but the Indications are
that the Los Angeles man will be
slight favorite on the day of the contest.

KEEN TUG-OF-WAIt RIVALRY
Swedes Defeat Norwegians and
Americans Beat tha Dutch.
Two exciting matches were on the
programme of the tug-of-war tourna
ment last evening. The first bout was
between the teams representing
Sweden and Norway in which the
Swedes came out victorious by defeat
ing their opponents with a balance
of 19 inches of rope on their side of
the center. In the bout between the
United States and the Germans, the
Americans pulled the Teutons out of
the cleats, thereby winning the match
decisively. The Billy Goose regiment
of youngsters came out victorious In
their contest with the Johnny Ducks.
Five of the regular teams are sched
uled to pull In the contests this eve
ning, and the same number will be on
the cards tomorrow night. The best
bout on the card for tonight Is the
second meeting between the United
States and Sweden, for the rivalry be
tween these two teams is of the keen
est variety, and an Interesting strug

The Secret of Health.
-The nourishment taken by body and
mind, the extent to which this nourish

consumed, and the care given to the body
and Its various functions all profoundly
affect the health." says a recent edi

to the home. "Some Individuals think
they can abuse the laws of nature with
Impunity, but even generous endowments
of physical vigor eventually succumb,
while the great ma&s of people, especially
the young, are peculiarly susceptible to
the food they consume."
As "Good Housekeeping" In an edl-
toria suggests, health depends not so
much on the nourishment taken into
the stomach as on the extent to which
this nourishment is taken up by the sys

early In the season by the same firm

Another vessel now pretty well over

left Europe nearly 300 days ago. She
ran into bad weather with many
others and was forced to put Into
Cape Town July 17 for repairs. Since
Railing from that port on August
nothing has been heard from her. ex
cept that some weeks ago an incoming
vessel reported her off the Columbia
River bar. Little credence was placed
In this report, however, and with the
arrival of the ship Brabloch on No
vember 24. the belief gained ground
that the Brabloch was mistaken for
the Bardowle. while hanging around
off the bar waiting for a tow.
Unless having lost her bearings, the
Bardowle had no business off the Co
lumbla River at that time since her
ordera are to deliver a portion of her
cargo at Port Los Angeles before pro

It is not surprising that my digestive
apparatus, never very strong, should have
become thoroughly deranged from the
effect of the starchy, highly seasoned,
greasy dishes, usually set before way
farers. "I became the prey of all the distress
and wretchedness that accompany dys
