and the Chicago White Sox first squad
on March 1 at Visalia and March 19 at
Visalia. Fresno or Bakersfield are the
only exhibition affairs scheduled to

promises to be remembered as the most
strenuous In Beaver history from a
practice game standpoint.
"I would rather give the men two
practice games a day than send them
out to dawdle around the park, and 1
am sure they feel the same way," says
McCredie. "The boys are going to get
every chance to work Into shape In
practice games. 'All the practice games
I can get,' Is my motto."

pitched for the Coasters during 1908,
09, '10. In 1911 he Joined Nick Wil
liams' Portland Colts and last year
managed the Pendleton team.

coach of our boys for the coming sea

Reported to Be in High
Favor With Fans.

Netted Oaks $1500.
" Br roscoe: fawcett.
SAN FRANCISCO. Feb. 26. (Spe
cial.) Harry Krause. Portland's new
southpaw twirling addition, wm ao.
He is in shape to begin the season
tomorrow, and will need only light
work at Vi3alia. Krause pitched six
innings in a benefit game for Claire
Patterson at Oakland Sunday against
the Coast champions, and, while he
was touched 'up for four safe swats,
netting five tallies, he rallied down the
stretch and Lowenberg's pickups de
feated the Oaks, 6 to 5, in ten innings.
Krause is a big young fellow with
an easy swing, and all the Coast
leaguers who have batted against hjm
believe that he will prove a star at
traction. Cy Parkin pitched part of
the game for the Oaks Sunday, and
the megaphone vocalist praised Krause

of Tesreau,- of the New York Giants,
last year has been touted far and wide
as a world's record. But, be It known
that Krause Is the original debutante.
and he has the dope to show it.
Krause achieved the unique distinction,
back in 1909, of winning every one of
the first ten games he pitched for
the Philadelphia Americans, including
three victories over the champion .De
troit team, the Tigers scoring but one
run in the three games.
In the ten successive victories
Krause was scored on only four times,
six belnc shutouts. Ills first defeat
was by St. Louis after a desperate 11-
innlng battle. The complete recora oi
Krause's run of victories is as fol

Burns, Hughes and Smith pitching. Three

Scott pitching. Five hits.

July 11 Defeated Detroit 7 to 1. Mullin

Krause seems to have excellent con
trol, but says he has been troubled
with his arm the past two or three
seasons. He thinks the Coast weather
will help him out.
The benefit ball game Sunday be
tween Lowenberg's pickups and the
Oaks netted $1600 for Claire Patterson,
the Oak outfielder. Patterson is lying
at the point of death on the MoJave

place honors yesterday when it de

The feature of the game was the ac

team and the sensational basket shoot

kets, and a majority of them were dif

and disappointed its followers by Its
poor showing. The players failed to
guard their men and failed to pass
with any accuracy.
Gage at guard and Dudley at center
played a superb game for Lincoln and
each player managed to throw five field
baskets. C. Larsen, the star Columbia
forward, played up to his past per
formances and proved the main point
getter of his team. He shot five bas
kets and did a great deal of passing
to the other players. J. Larson a.t
