The new 1915 Oak model gave the
trans-bay fans something to talk

today without getting a representative
as far as third base, they turned on

SEALS AGAIN" HKAT MAJORS
Break of Luck Turns Game Which
Develops Fine Pitching.
SAN FRANCISCO. Cal., March 7.
(Special.) Against southpaw pitching
for the first time tbis season and good,
consistent heaving at that equipped
on their own account with a veteran
who hasn't had a chance to get into
shape, and a no,vice whose ability was
more or less a matter of speculation,
the Seals beat the White Sox today in
the concluding game, 3 to 2. and thereby
captured the opening series.
Lfty Scoggins, a Western League re
cruit, was doing yeoman work for the
Sox seconds, and it was the break of
the luck that turned the tide against
him. Charles Smith, one-time Chicago
Cub. worked three blankless innings,
after which he was retired. Ira Colwell,
the youngster who followed and pitched
the session to a close, worked his way
into the hearts of fandom. All told, he
allowed but four hits, and not until the
ninth could the visitors bunch as many
as a couple of their bingles.
The spectacular stunt of the after
noon was a throw to the plate by Bobby
Roth in the fourth inning which nipped
Bodie with inches to spare, transform
ing Leard"s fly into a double play.
Smith looked a wise bird in his three
innings of work, displaying a mighty
nice curve ball. Score: -

SERAPHS CRUSH WHITE SOX
Twenty-Two Hils by Angels Give
lt2-2 Victory to Dillon's Men.
LOS ANGELES, Cel., March 7. (Spe
cial.) So many base hits, singles, dou
bles and triples rained over Washing
ton Park this afternoon that the big
Sunday crowd got dizzy watching them,
and they made the fourth game be
tween the Sox and Angels look like a
runaway. The Angels lambasted the
everlasting tar out of Russell, Benz and
Johnson, and romped in winners 12 to 2.
Hughes worked the first three frames,
yielding one hit and no runs. Then
Perritt went in, and two hits off him
gave the Sox their only look-in. Ryan
and Gall each pitched an inning, the
latter giving one hit, which mado the
Sox' total of four. Meusel was the par
ticular star of the game, getting a
single, two doubles and a triple in four
times up. The Sox fielding was bad,
four glaring errors counting heavily in
the result. In fact, they looked like

LIZZIE C, RACEHORSE, DEAD
Animal, Owned by P. T. Wallace, 15
Years Old, Valued at $15,000.
Lizzie C, a well-known racehorse of
the Pacific Coast, has run her last race,
for her death has been reported by her
owner, P. T. Wallace, 1600 East Stark
street. The animal was registered at
2:06, but in a trial heat with a running
mate she registered the mile in 2:01.
The trial run was made in 1906 on
the old Bayview track near San Fran
cisco. Mr. Wallace drove Lizzie C. to a
buggy last June on the Rose City Park
speedway and covered the half mile in
58 seconds. The horse was bred and
reared in San Francisco.
Mr. Wallace valued the animal at
$15,000 and everywhere he drove he
came in for a large share of attention.
Lizzie C. would have been 15 years old
May 20. 6he was entered in the 2:06
pace in the East, but never made the
journey. Mr. Wallace had owned, the
horse for four years.

Easterners are holding out for Jack

year Victoria lost three straight games
at Toronto. The scores were 5-2. 6-s
and 2-1- Back East they play six
man hockey and in order to prepare his
Vancouver title-holders to this style,
six-man hockey likely will prevail in
the all-star preliminaries which are
on the tapis for the next 10 days. In
the world's series every other game
will be six-man play. While there is
considerable difference in the two
styles, Vancouver ought to be well
equipped, as it has no fewer than six
speedy forwards in Taylor, Mackay,
Nlghbor Cook. Stanley and Mallen.
Generally sending substitutes on the
ice doesn't improve a team, but in this
case Patrick has two or three second
stringers about on a par with the regu
lars. Wise hockey men who saw Van
couver beat Portland 5-0 at the Ice
Hippodrome a fortnight back believe
that the Millionaires will signally de

According to the official averages of
the interclub billiard tournament be
tween the Multnomah, Elks and Com
mercial clubs, which ended recently
with Multnomah Club the victor, F. P.
McKim finished with the best average.
However, he did not participate in as
many games as some of the other
players. William Walter, also of
Multnomah, was the most consistent
player, while G. H. Brooks, of the Elks,
piled up the largest number of points.

BT CHRISTY MATHEWSON,
The Giants' Famous Pitcher.
MARUN, Tex.. March 7. (Special.)
During the past Winter I have had an
opportunity to study other professional
sports and how they are conducted, and
I want to go on record with a state
ment I have always believed, that base
ball is the squarest sport in the world.
In Havana we saw racing and boxing.
Said a racetrack follower to me:
1 nvr het on baseball, because long
ago my father told me not to bet on
onirlhinir that COUld talk."
But, personally, if I were going to
bet I would prefer to wager a little
something on baseball rather than the
horse races. The Giants and members
of other teams have always called me
a "percentage guy," because I have
made It my business to study chances
and possibilities and endeavor to get
the biggets fair percentage in my favor.
For this reason, early in my baseball
days, I began to make a study of every
batter to face me. Let me tell you that
in racing the bookmakers are the "per
centage guys." They have all the edge.
This conclusion is the result of my re
Tips Given Palm to Month.
What amused me most about the race
track was the style of the frequenters
of the game and their manners. Every
man talks behind his hand when he
tells you what horse is going to win so
as not to let anyone within hearing in
on the tip. He also talks behind his
hand later when he informs you why
fthe horse lost. Palm to mouth, he says:
"The jock wasn't there. The race was
for five furlongs, but that boy took the
horse out around the turn ana maae
him run five and a half. You can't ex
pect a horse to come through that way
The tipsters furnished us witn an
sorts of reasons why their selections
should win. One of the funniest I ever

starter has a bet on the horse himself,
and he is going to get behind the nag

Yestersun Needs Boosting.
As events turned out, the assistant
starter should have been in the stretch
to boost Yestersun along there, since
that is where he needed it. He took a
lot of dust.
Understand, I am not finding any
fault with the racing game or casting
any reflections on it, but I prefer base
ball to it. There is no fun In racing
if you don't bet, and, when you do, the
bookmakers have the old "percentage.
You don t see the tragedies around a
ball park that you do at a racetrack
and each one of these has a story, or a
past, or a record, or whatever you want
to call it. One day a man with no
collar and a drooping mustache, to the
fringe of which hung traces of his last
drink, came up to McGraw.
"Know anything good today, Del?"
"It's a tough day to pick them. John

"He hasn't a thin dime now," an
swered McGraw, "but I remember the
days when he used to bet $8000 and
$10,000 on one race and owned a big
string of horses. He has parleyed a
fortune into that old suit of clothes."
"What does he do now?" I asked.
"Nothing. About a -year ago he
bought a horse cheap that was broken
down, and he did not have money
enough to hire a Jock to ride him. I

were 15 to 1 on his horse to win. I
took a small flier on it and the horse

only picked up a few dollars on the
win, and the dope he shot into him was
too much for the nag. But whatever
the 'stuff' was, it sure made the horse

The fighting game did not make much
of a hit with me, either, what I saw of
it during the Winter. The promoters
are trying to cut one another's throats
and steal bouts all the time. When we
were in Havana the Willard-Johnson
bout was to take place at Juarez in a
few weeks. Havana was full of rival
promoters to Curley and Jones, who had
charge of the Johnson-Willard mixup.
They were figuring on scaring Johnson
from going to Mexico and stealing him
for a championship bout if he showed
in Havana, as they had been tipped he
would. Johnson did finally show, and
they frightened the big inkspot into
believing that it would not be safe for
him to try to get to Juarez through

DEWEY QUITS COLLEGE
STAR CORVALLIS ATHLETE TO BE
DIRECTOR AT THE DALLES.
Football Plnycr, TraeW Phenom and
Scintillating Member of Basketball
Team to Lead High School Boys.
OREGON AGRICULTURAL COL
LEGE, Corvallis, March 7. (Special.)
Track stock at the Oregon Agricul
tural College has taken a decided
slump, due to the announcement that
"Admiral'' George Dewey, veteran all
round athlete and the surprise of the
entire squad last Spring, will not be
with the Aggies when they go in their
meets this season.
Dewey has been chosen director of
athletics at The Dalles High School
and will leave to take up his new du
ties the middle of next week. He is
particularly well fitted for this posi
I tion, having had a varied athletic ex
perience extending over several years
and including every branch of colle
giate and scholastic activity. He be
gan his athletic career at Purdue Uni
versity In the Fall of 1907. when he as
sumed a leading role in interclass ath
letics. He remained at Purdue one
year, later going to the University of
Wisconsin. Here the "Admiral' con
tinued his work on the gridiron, the
diamond and the basketball court for
In the Fall of 1912 he registered at
the Oregon college. Here he immedi
ately usurped the quarterback berth so
long held by the diminutive "Shrimp
Reynolds and directed the Aggies
through one of their best seasons. A
regular berth on the basketball quintet
also fell to his lot that season.
Last year it was a repetition, with
the exception that the new brand of
football introduced by "Ioc" Stewart
found no place for a 140-pounder such
as the "Admiral." Being shut out of
football, Dewey devoted his attention
to basketball and track, landing an all
Northwest position in the former sport
and running strong as a "dark horse
in the distances. This year again ho
subbed on the football string and ha,
been one of the most consistent point
gatherers for the Aggie basket
shooters. GLIB SOCCEK- TEAM TIED
