Seattle, the pennant winner, was the
freak of the circuit. Ordinarily a team
which wins a diamond championship
makes fewer changes than any of its
brother clubs: the records of pennant
struggles usually disclose this fact.
But Seattle topped the list of clubs for
the number of men used, the figures
showing 17 players who wore Bug togs
during the 168-game season.
"A tribute to managerial ability"
commented Fielder Jones, president of
the league, when a ferreting into his
record books had revealed Seattle's
standing. "A club which experiments
with players as Seattle did seldom fin
ishes in the first division, much less at
the top. and the manager or owner who
pulls his team through a season of
changes and wins a pennant is to be
complimented as well as congratulated."
Portland and Vancouver each used 36
men during the season, with Tacoma
and Spokane 34 and Victoria 32. Vic

says the Northwestern League man

leaving just a few days before the

VAMOOSE IS WOW FEARED
26-Foot Champion, With' Engine

Approaching 50 Miles and
4 3-. 2 Miles Present Record.
A new motor-boat record for the Pa
cific Coast may be hung up at the
New Year's special races, which the
Portland Motor-Boat Club will hold on
the Willamette River tomorrow morn
ing. The present record of 42.2 miles
an hour is held by the Oregon Wolf, the
Pacific Coast champion for the last
Rumor has it that the Vamoose, the
speedy 26-foot champion owned by Cap
tain Milton Smith, of Rainier, Or., has
been making 46 and 47 miles an hour
with his hull equipped with the engines
of the Wigwam II, the Astoria speeder.
This is plausible enough to many of
the local fans. The Vamoose made the
fastest mile at the last Astoria regatta,
clipping it off in 1 minute and 32 sec
onds, several seconds faster than the
best time of the Wolf.
50-JIile Rate Reached.
In all its races, the motive power was
the losing factor and if a steady engine
can be placed in the hull the local fens
will not be surprised to see the Rainier
boat perform wonders. According to
the gossipy dame, the Wigwam engine,
none too reliable in its own hull, has
found a good berth in the bed of the
Vamoose and has been tearing up the
water of the Columbia at a speed close
to 60 miles, without even sputtering.
Smith, at first unwilling to bet on
his boat, is now after a share' of the
pot, but Wolf cannot see him.
"I, for my part, will let captain
Smith come into the race pot for the
New Year's speedboat event if he will
put UP 1500,'' says John E. Wolff, pilot
and builder of the Oregon Wolf, the
Pacific Coast champion, which will de
fend its title on the Willamette River
tomorrow morning against the Swas
tika, the 20-footer owned by R. F. Cox,
and the Vamoose.
Chance la Taken.
"When the race was first talked
about, Mr. Cox and myself put up our
$250 in good faith as good sports.
Captain Smith at that time was un
certain as to what his boat could do
with the Wigwam engine and did not
want to take a chance. My boat was
in the "boneyard" and I knew that I
would not have time to put the boat
In shape, yet I took e chance.
."Now reports come from down the
river that his boat is making between
46 and 47 miles an hour. At the same
time comes the statement that he will
enter the pot with the racer, knowing
that with the engine in any shape at
all he will probably clear J500 without

Tom Macdonalti Adds Bibby, Reed,
and Oglevie to Team That Plays
Keturn Gridiron Engagement
Against Winged "M" Men.
SEATTLE. Dec. 30. (Special.) With
reinforcements in Ernest Bibby, the
former 185-pound South Dakota star
who is now assistant coach at the Uni
versity of Idaho: J. Reed, the Navy
Yara quarterback, and Oglevle, the
Navy's big 200-pound tackle, the Wash
ington Athletic Club football team will
present a much stronger front when it
meets Multnomah New Year's than it
did in the game here a week an.
The local team leaves here Tuesday
at 10 o'clock, arriving In Portland in
time to get a good night's rest before
the game. Manager Tom , MacDonald
announces he will take 17 players on
the trip, which gives him two men for
all the important positions.
Ike Down. left end, who suffered a
badly-fractured finger in the game
here, is still in the hospital. The break
is an unusually bad one and slight
blood-poisoning has confined Mm to his
bed. Bibby will take his position at
the left extremity. Johnny Bender came
in for considerable criticism here after
the last game because he did not run
off as many plays as some of his team
mates and fans thought he ought and
because he' resorted too much to punt
ing, but Johnny will be at .the pivot
again New Tear s and will only witn
draw when he sees fit in favor of Reed,
the new substitute quarter.
Emil Hauser, the stocky Indian
whose bad ear slowed him up in the
clash with the winged "M" players
here, is in better shape now and he is
expected to be up to his usual form.
The Hauser of the Navy-Yard game and
the Hauser of the Multnomah game
were entirely different persons, and if
the Navy-Yard Hauser is let loose at
Portland the Multnomah line and back
field will have a harder time of it than
they had before.
MacDonald's team laid off active
work until after Christmas, but since
then have practiced daily. The men are
all in fine shape, having fully recovered
from what bruises they sustained. Ex
cept for Hauser's ear, which is still ten
der, all the men are tit.
MacDonald has taught his men sev
eral new plays and Bender has prom
ised to mix the plays a little more ana
nut Multnomah on tne aerense. Max
Eakins will punt when it la really nee
essary, but the Seattle men prefer not
to have the game turned into a punting

Through Practice, Despite Rain.
Multnomah Club football athletes are
not to be caught napping by Tom Mc

iron warriors clash on Multnomah Field
at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon. Con
ndent by virtue of the 15-6 victory over
the Seattleltes on the enemy s neia, ana
cocksure of adding another win to the
tally of three already chalked up
against McDonald's selections, yet the
Multnomah boys are working as strenu
ously for the game as though almost

Too vit-Vi ATarHn Pratt sent his
charges out on the rain-soaked sawdust,
while "ye manager" wrestled strenu

member of the squad was on hand for
the disagreeable duty. Tonight the

three straight defeats in two seasons,
has decided that the cycle of disaster
has been completed, and that tomorrow
is the day'upon which it is due to crush
the vanquishers. The bitterness of oft
