The June 14 affair, concluding the
athletic activity of Rose Festival week,
will be a Pacific Northwest Association
championship gathering, and not a Pa
cific Coast meet, as planned. After In
vestigating the situation Schmltt is
convinced that it will be better to hold
a gigantic Northwest meet, with the
pick of the athletes of the territory
involved, than to import a few Callfor
nlans and perhaps scare off a number
of Northwesterners. Schmltt and his
aaslstanta are already preparing tof

TKXICE SQTJAD TOO LARGE
McCredle Says Hog an Is Evading
Rules by Subterfuge.
That "Happy" Hogan, manager of the
Venice team In the Pacific Coast
League. Is evading, by subterfuge, the
rules of the National Commission by
carrying too many men Is the charge
fired at Hogan last night by Walte
McCredle. manager of the Portland
Clam AA club.
"Hogan has 12 or iJ players, although
he is allowed only 20 after May 1..
charges McCredle. "He has suspended
Elliott and McDonnell, presumably for
Injuries, but I notice Elliott Is along
with the team in uniform and out on
the coaching lines.
Tne rules certainly mean that a club
can carry on the payroll only 20 men,
and if we are to have rules, why not
live np to them?"
Manager McCredle win not protest
any of this week's games, but be may
call President Baura's attention to the
alleged infraction of the National
tenets.
The penalty for carrying over the
limit Is severe, . there being a stiff fine
attached. In addition to a forfeiture of
the franchise for conviction.
