speed, curves and control, but weak-

scored four hits in five trials.

of major league caliber."
In the fielding line Mike McCormick

, remarkable stops and throws and hit
tne ball hard, although only one drive,
a hit and run, fell safe. Rodgers is
ill, so Heilmann played second. 8oirth-

UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA,
Berkeley, Cal.. March 13. (Special.)
Announcement that the Astoria High
School Is to enter the Pacific Coast in
terscholastic track meet April 4 and
5, has caused comment because Nelson,
one of Astoria's principal performers,
was formerly with the Washington
High School, Portland, which captured
second last year. He ran the distances
and the relay for the victorious Oregon
It was said then that he lost his race
thrqugh lack of development and it is
thought that this season be will be at
his best. The season will be early for
him and the Astoria track, rather slow,

but it Is .thought that he will be able
to overcome that handicap.

Walter McCredie broke his long si
lence this morning, definitely picked
his outfield personnel, arranged his
lineup and batting order for the open
ing game against San Francisco April
1 and, as if that were not enough for
one sitting, the enigmatical Portland
Coast League leader gave voice to the
assertion that Bill Lindsay, his har
hitting third baseman, may be turned
over to the Portland Northwestern
Contrary to generally accepted be
liefs, Mac will not make a change in
his garden alignment. The- three vet
erans, Chadboume, Krueger and Doane,

necessitates a switch.
Chsilbourne to Lead Off.
The Portland batting order against
the Seals will be as follows:
Chadboume, left field; Doane, right
field; Rodgers, second base; Krueger,
center field; Korea, shortstop; Derrick,
first base; McCormick, third base;
Fisher, catcher; Higginbotham or Car
"My brow has become almost corru
gated through study over the outfield
situation," -said Manager McCredie, ex
plaining his choice. "I don't see how
I can get away frem my old vets. Krue

of the grandest gardeners in the world

and see how it works out, anyway."
McCredie undoubtedly will Bhlft his
batting order against left-handed
pitchers, as Chadbourne, Doane and
Rodgers, the lead-off men, are south
paw hitters. So is ' Fisher, but the
Seals are not expected to shove any
portslders against the Beavers open
The announcement that Lindsay Is
ticketed for the Northwestern League
will cause genuine surprise all up and
down the Coast. It has been known
for weeks that McCredie has been fig
uring on McCormick as regular third
sacker, but that he was considering a
split with the hard-biffing-Southerner
was not dreamed of.
"Lindsay is still loafing along the
way, a week after my last straggler,
and will not be of use to me tor a
month, even in a utility berth," de
clared Mac "Now Peters reports to
me May 1, and as I intend carrying
young Heilmann, the San Francisco
boy, for a few weeks, I don't see as I
need Lindsay. Peters is a better ball
player and I expect to use him in the
Turn Pleasea Williams.
Peters graduates from the Stanford
law department In a few weeks. He Is
coaching the ball club there and will
be In condition to jump Into a Coast
uniform on the day of reporting. Nick
Williams, manager of the Portland B
league club, is, of course, delighted at
the turn of events.
"Lindsay may not be the best fielder
In the world, but I need a hard-hitting
infielder and he will fill me out nicely, '
said Manager Williams. "Mac, I un
derstand, is afraid of a return of the
trouble that put Lindsay out of active
service a goodly portion of last season.
For that same reason the other Coast
managers' will likely waive on him.
Lindsay, however, says he is in good
physical condition and I certainly am
willing to take a chance."
SIX GAMES SCHEDULED
