Seventeen bits off Arellanes, scat

the game yesterday, on the local
grounds, . gave another' victory to the
3eavers over the Missions.
The score: Portland 10, Missions 2.
The contest had many marks of a
real battle until the final three Innings,
.when the Beavers simply made merry
In every department and had the Mis
sions going for the timber.
Until the sixth each team had worked
for and received one run. Then came
the worst part of. the contest for the
Missions. Fisher walked, Ryan sin
gled, Kores sacrificed, Speas blngled
and gave a chance to Fisher to slide
under a throw to the plate. Lober also
singled and Lush cleaned up with a

In the first of the seventh the .Mis
sions gave a feeble wiggle and three

eight clean ones. Aside from those

Arellanes was kept in torrid territory
all the time.
The Beavers took the field with a
changed batting order. Fisher being
pulled from seventh place to fourth.
The move almost brought a run In the
fifth, when Rodgers and Derrick were
on base. With two down, a double
steal was attempted and Rodgers was
caught, . without Fisher getting a

Portland also hit quality as well as
quantity. Lush and Kores both got
extra bases, Lush a two-bagger and
Kores a three-bagger.
Portland did more damage in the
seventh and eighth. In the seventh
Rodgers, Fisher and Kores each got
hits, Kores' three-bagger chasing in
the former two.
The hits in the ninth were by Fisher,
Ryan and Lober and each of the trio
made possible another run.
Lush Keeps lilts Scattered.
Lush kept a stiff front and scattered
the nine hits pretty well, bunches of

the Missions on the run.
According to word from President
McCredie, who still is in the south,
there will be a double-header Sunday

Never has a Willamette team faced
such an aggregation of all-stars as the

Warren Booth at quarter, were the
mainstays of the team. The center of
the line proved especially weak. Bolt
and Pfaff, tackles, being worked beyond
their limit in their efforts to bolster up
their respactive sides.
The alumni s first touchdown came
near the end of the first quarter, when,
following a series of line smashes,
Francis circled the right end for some
22 yards and a touchdown. He dropped
the punt out.
In the second period the alumni re
peated the performance and just before
time was called for the half Bishop
plunged over the line and Francis suc
cessfully negotiated with the cross
bars for an additional point. Score:
Alumni 13, Willamette 0. .
In the third period the alumni added
seven points by Bishop again crossing
the goal line and Francis added three
more with a placement from the 30
yard line. Score: Alumni 23, Willam
The final period was the only one in
which the regulars were able to hold
the upper hand. Lack of practice was
telling on the alumni men s wind and
the stiff training the college boys had
undergone allowed them to come in for
a little glory at the finish. Their rally
started when Flegel intercepted a for
ward pass and zig-zagged through 45
yards of broken field for a touchdown.
The try for goal went wide. This score
seemed to give the Willamette men
new life and they fought like demons,
the game ending with the ball on the
alumni's 15-yard line.
FISHER TO GET TROPHY
CATCHER IS VOTED MOST VALU
ABLE BEAVER. PLAYER.
Aa Result of Commission's Verdict,
Mammoth Silver Cap Will Be
Awarded Rodger Is Second.
At a meeting of the Britten Trophy
Commission yesterday Gus Fisher,
catcher of the Portland Coast cnam
pions, was voted the most valuable
player to the Beavers and as a result
will receive in the near future a mam
moth silver trophy cup valued at $250
and capable of holding mor- than a
gallon of anything.
The commission consisted of R. A.
Cronin, of the Journal; L. M. Kennedy,
of the Telegram, and Roscoe Fawcett,
of The Oregonian. The voting .was
done per the Chalmers balloting of two
years ago. Five playerse o'n the club
were considered and the most valu
able was scored five points, the next
four and so on down.
Fisher received two firsts and Hig
ginbotham one. Rodgers received two
seconds and a third and ranked next
to Fisher in points.
The final count showed Fisher 13
points. Rodgers 11, Higginbotham 10,
Bancroft 7, Kores 3 and Derrick 1.
Fisher leads the league in batting
and has been a hard worker all season,
and that was why the commissioners
swayed In his favor. The trophy was
put up by a well-known chewing-gum
FOUR AGGIES ARE INJURED
Scrimmage Gives Xecessary Experi
ence Before Alumni Game.
OREGON AGRICULTURAL COL
LEGE, Corvallis, Or, Sept. 25 (Spe
cial.) The scrimmage to which Dr.
Stewart subjected about 30 of his
warriors accomplished its purpose
in that it gave some necessary ex-
perience preliminary to the alumni
game Saturday, but it bore fruit in the
shape of injuries to four men. One of
these mishaps is of a serious nature.
Brewer Billie, the Astoria boy who last
year played a fast game at end and
who has been playing in the back field
this year, was put out with a broken
lose and will be out for probably three
weeks. Abraham, fullback, stopped a
kick with his forearm and received a
bad bruise. Blssett, a Newberg fresh
man, reported a painful elbow, and
Selph, of California, jolted a shoulder.
The addition of Billie to the list of
cripples sadly disrupts the back field
which Stewart planned to send against
the Alumni, and it seems likely that a
number of freshmen will be called upon
to occupy back field berths.

Ralph II. Baldwin, of Board of Di

by George TurnbuII.
Eighteen permanent greens likely

Such is the opinion of Ralph H. Bald
win, one of the energetic members of
the board- of directors.
"The present nine-hole course is en
tirely temporary," said he yesterday.
In the course of a talk concerning the
outlook for the new organization.
"George TurnbuII. the well-known pro
fessional, was out last Sunday and ar
ranged the permanent stakings.
"When these plans are completed our
course will be regulation in length, in
stead of short, as it is at present. Our

closed for two or three months when
the greens ultimately were sowed for
"Now, in my judgment, we haven't
the membership to Justify a full 18-hole
course this Winter and I believe the
club will vote simply to complete the
18 permanent greens and then along
about June play on the first nine holes
will be diverted to the first nine per
"These nine permanent holes will lie
in about' the same locality as they do
now except that TurnbuII has laid off
a couple of, beautiful greens in the
thick woods to- the left of the present
third and fourth holes. The first teeing
ground, too. will be back of the pres
ent clubhouse so that the pla-ers will
have a long drive on the first bole.
"The Portland Golf Club Is an as
sured thing, but-we will have to work
slowly until our membership shows at
least 250 men members. We are nearly
100 short of that now, but new play
ers are Joining every day.
"When the final plans for the 18-hole
course have been completed we will
have a links the equal of anything In
