BY W. J. PETRA1N. ,
SAN LUIS OBISPO, Cal., March 15.
SpecIal.) McCredie's hopefuls seemed
to come out of their trance' of the day
before and played gtit.-edged ball
against the hired- men of- ComiKkey,
though neither team was able to score
In nine Innings.
Portland outhlt and outplayed the
Sox, but was unable to get a man past
third base, though on two Occasions
they had runs knocking at the door.
once and Tlnddv Pvnr Tr-1 1 An-myy rr I
the other occasion. Some sensational
ontfleld work by Barrows, of the Sox,
also served to hold down the score.
Vtc Holm, formerly with the Spo
kane Northwestern League Club, start
ed to pitch for Chicago and was lucky
In having good support, for fine field
ing Is all that prevented Portland from
scoring in the first and fourth innings.
Freddie Parent in center field also
pulled down some line hits and long
flies, which robbed the Portland play
ers of bingles, as well as possible runs.
Stcen and Krapp Pitch Pine Ball.
McOedle brought only enough men
to play the game and pitchers Will
lam Steen and Eugene Krapp pitched
splendid ball and had no difficulty
In shutting out the Sox. Steen al
lowed three hits in five innings and
Krapp was found for one safety In the
last four innings.
Portland's best chance to score was
In the fifth inning. Armbruster led off
with a clen hit to left and stole sec
ond immediately. Steen fanned and
Charley Mullin speared Casey's drive
and came near doubling Armbruster
at second. Holm lost control and
walked both Perrine and. Ryan, but
Manager McCredie was not equal to
the occasion, for Lee' Tannehill tossed
his grounder to first base yards ahead
of the tall manager.
George Ort opened the fourth inning
with a two-base smash to the left field
walL and only fast fielding by Barrows
prevented it being good for three bases.
Joseph 'Smith followed with a drive
which looked like a homer, for the
ball seemed ticketed for the center
field pasture, which is a thousand or
more feet long, but Parent made one
of the prettiest running catches ever
teen in a ball game and another" Port
land chance went glimmering.
Casey Again Bright Star.
Casey again carried off the batting
honors for the day. He rapped out
three clean hits, while Barrows, the
Box batting demon, only annexed two.
"Doc" White pitched the last four in
nings for the White Sox and Casey was
the only Portlander to get on the sacks
and he landed there by virtue of his
third hit of the game.
Jess Harrington and Charley Baren
stecher, both of Portland, came down
from Paso Robles to see the game to
day and were numbered among the
rooters for McCredie . and the Port
land team. The attendance here was
about half that at Santa Maria yes
terday. The Portland team leaves Santa Ma
ria tomorrow for San Jose, where a
series of four -games will be played
with the State League. Club commenc
ing Thursday. McCredie has received
an offer from Chicago to allow him the
use of Southpaw Schmirler during the
coming season, and Mac may. take an
option on the player until a certain
date. He wants to try out all his
present staff before engaging new

lad from Blaine, Wash., possesses only
one ""weakness, and ' that is in batting.
Ag a fielding third baseman he has no
equal on the Coast, and all of the Port
land players would regret to see him
leave the club, as he is one of the most
popular members. McCredie thinks Smith
might pick up in batting, and intends to
hold hlra for awhile anyway.
Netzel is too fast to play third base.
At least' that is the verdict McCTedle
parsed on him after seeing -him workout
several days, and the -tall manager an
nounces that Ivan Olson will be the
regular third seeker of the club, while
Netzel will play outfield, and utility roles,
which means that McCredie may dispose
of George Ort. Ort is a favorite not only
with the manager but also with .the Port
land fans, and. this may be a wrong guess1,
but -with players" like Rapps, Casey, Per
rine,' Olson and Netzel on hand, it appears
ridiculous to believe that McCredie will
carry six inflelders, especially when he
has;' a pitcher like Guyn who can fill in
anywhere. Then there is Billy Steen, an
other pitcher who can hold down" infield
positions, and Charley Hartman, twho is
really a better first baseman and outfielder
than a good many players who .have got
away with their work in the .Pacific Coast
League in the last few years. ,-
The work of Catchers Armbruster and
Murray, will make it difficult for Manager
McCredie to decide on which of them he
will retain "as second catcher to Gus
Fisher, who will undoubtedly be- the first

McCredie Will Have .Difficulty in

SAN LUIS OBISPO. Cal.. March 15.
fSpecial.) McCredie's Pacific " Coast
Leaguers are now on "the road for a
series of preliminary games which will
serve to get the players into first-class
form to open the season against San
Francisco March 30.
Four games are to be played with
San Jose, one each at Modesto and Ma
dera, and then four more games at
Fresno with the California State
League Club, of that city. This will
fill all the dates up to March 28. when
the team reaches San Francisco, and
Dn that day Manager McCredie has
arranged to play the Olympic Club
team In an exhibition game.
With the exception of Olson, who
had just reported, and Speas, who ar
rived Saturday, all of the players left
Santa Maria in great shape to begin
the season. Even Netzel, who was
spiked in Saturday's game between the
Irish and the Dutch, was handled so
carefully and cleverly by Doc1- Cornell
that he was lame for only one day after
the accident, and got into the game

A stellar boxing and wrestling card
has been arranged for the interclub
meet between the Mutnomah Club and
the Spokane Athletic Club next Friday
night in the M. A. A. C. gymnasium.
This will be the last interclub event of
the year for the local organization. .
The programme for the meet will in
clude eight matches, two wrestling and
two boxing interclub matches, and four
preliminary boxing bouts between local
The programme for the meet will be:
105-pound boxing McCarl. Multno-
115-pound boxing J. Cassidy, of Multnomah, vs. L. McCoy or A. Rourke, of
158-pound wrestling Duff, of Multnomah, vs. Gesek, of Spokane.

105-pound boxing Hewitt, of Multnomah, vs. Fricke, of the Catholic Club.

A fourth preliminary fight for 135-pound boxers is being arranged.
catcher of the club. Fisher has no su
perior in the catching department on the
Pacific Coast, and for either Murray or
Armbruster to beat him out of the regular
berth would be a great surprise.
Murray seems like a different player
this season. He is gingery, and full of
life. Last year he seemed afflicted with
an indifferent spirit, but thia season he
is the hardest worker of the bunch with
the possible exception of Armburster.
Big Bill Chenault will be sent to the
Vancouver Olub, of the Northwestern
League, unless he shows ' marked im
provement in his work. Chenault is an
unlucky pitcher, though- most of this is
due to his own poor fielding when op
posing players are on the bases. Max
Hall will' likely be turned back to the
Springfield Club, for he seems too lazy
to uit the Portland manager. "How
does he expect me to get a line "on him
unless he cuts loose?" remarked the man
ager the other day, and Hall continuea
to take things easy.

MRS. GEORGE KADDERLY , WINS
RACE, IS AWARDED CUP.

Tank Eight Contestants Enter:
Mrs. Watkina Close Second.
With an advantage of not over three
lengths, Mrs. George Kadderly won the
50-yard race by members of the Multno
mah Club women's swimming class yes
terday forenoon in the club tank. The
contest was the most exciting event
held at the club for some time and was
witnessed by 100 of the faU- sex.
There were eight participants in the
race. Mrs. Frank Watklns, the only
scratch entry, finished but a "fraction of
a second behind Mrs. Kadderly,' who had
a handicap of 15 seconds. Miss Grace
O'Neill, with a handicap of 20 seconds,
finished third. Mrs. Watklns covered the
distance In the exceptionally fast time of
44 seconds flat.

Bannqn trophy. Which was held over
from the Christmas swim, having been
intended as a second prize in that event.
Mrs. Kadderly " will retain permanent
possession of the cup.

about half the length of the tank. Mrs.
Watklns swam in magnificent form, over
taking the lead pf her opponent foot
by foot and finishing with a grand flour
ish. - Her hand touched the end of the
tank barely a second after Mrs. Kad
derly's had reached the goal.
After the race fancy diving was ex
hibited by Miss O'Neill,. Mrs. Frank Wat
kins, Miss Hewlett ''and others. The
women accomplished many difficult feats,
including practically everything Instruc
tor Cavlll, himself, is able to do, and
their efforts, brought forth prolonged ap
plause from; the gallery.
Superintendent Walker acted as judge
for the race and Mr. O'Neill was starter
and timer. Plans are being made , for
