training games so far. It was played
in an hour and 25 minutes and was
replete with sensational hitting. Mur

SALT LAKE CITY. March 25. '(Spe

today saw the Mormons in action. Up
wards of 800 persons gathered at Lucas
field this afternoon and watched a ftve
innlng game between two teams chosen
from the squad. In the forenoon Skip
per Blankenship put his men through
some work at the Deseret gymnasium
and later took them to the field, where
a short batting practice was held. In
the afternoon Blankenship and Billy
Orr chose sides and a five-inning game
was played. Blankenship switched and
Interchanged the lineup on both teams
so much that the fans were unable to
glean any knowledge of the team's
playing ability. Henderson pitched one
inning on Blankenship's team and made
a splendid showing. He says that he
Is in the best rondition.
"The club looks mighty good to me,"
said Blankenship, "and above all. Judg

might spoil their condition, but they

SAX FRANCISCO. March 25. (Spe
cial.) "Bring on your Seals!" gleefully
shouted a transbay fan today as the
Oaks waded into the White Sox regu
lars for a 7-to-0 victory. The cheer
about represented the feeling that pre
vailed in the stands and the players on
the field performed in decidedly Im
proved form. They hit with a will,
fielded brilliantly and had the dash of
a winning combination.
It was simply a case of a team under
way with good pitching to carry it
along, and the result was that the self
same fans who have been disappointed
with the club were yelling and predict
ing what a walloping is in store for the
Seals next week.
Prominent in the victory was the air
tight pitching of Dutch. Klawitter and
"Nuts" Boyd and the slugging of the
Oaklanders. They rapped Ellis John

Santa Clara Defeats Mighty San
Francisco Club. 5 to 1.
SAX FRANCISCO. March 23. (Spe
cial.) Harry Wolverton's Seals are no
longer certain they're going to knock
the cover off the ball every time they
come to bat. Facing Santa Clara Uni
versity with a team only slightly out
of line, so far as the regulars are con
cerned, the San Francisco contingent
met with a 5-to-l defeat this afternoon
at Recreation Park. It was an eye
opener, in a measure, and doubtless the
best thing that could have happened.
The Coasters were up against high
class southpaw pitching on the part
of Tom Hickey and they came away
with but a single run at the close.
Hickey, whosa chief fault Is a lack
of control, was in exceptionally good
form. He allowed but six hits during
the afternoon and walked but three of
the opposing stickers. He was ably
supported, since the collegians escaped
without an error and made three
double plays that shut off the Seals
when they looked most dangerous.
Ira Colwell and Art Benham divided
the pitching for the San Francisco ag

The White Sox goofs were not in

easily beaten by the Angels today, 5

fourth and eighth, but in the other
frames he was nearly invincible.
Hughes, on the other' hand, allowed
the goof sluggers three measly sin
gles, and by the aid .of a pass and an
error they managed to sneak a man
across in -the eighth. Maggerfs hit
ting was fierce, he rapping out a
triple and two singles In four times up.
The Angels played ,as if the season
was half over, despite the cold, raw
wind that blew across the field. Dillon
changed his lineup, letting Harper lead

position. Wolters, the hard-hitting
right fielder, has not shown up yet.

Berry also says he has had advices from

to be of a similar frame of mind, but the

BOYS IN FINE CONDITION
Match Between Newsie and Oriental,
Headliner for Imperial Club
Smoker Tonight, Attracts
No Little Attention.
Abe Gordon, 100-pound amateur

buoks up against Jimmy Howe. Jimmy
Is the Chinese boy from Walla Walla,
and is said to be a real scrapper. The
bout between the two whisper-weights
should be the best one seen in Portland
for many moons. Both boys are in fine
condition. The Chinese boy will draw
a lot of Orientals to the ringside. A sec
tion of the hall already has been re
served by no less than 50 of the most
prominent Chinese in Portland.
The battle between the two boys has
caused more "of a sensation in local
amateur circles than any match seen
since Al McNeil and Walter Williams

of the city at 115 pounds some three
Both boys have been working out for

Newsboy More Active.
Gordon has one chance to win. The
little newsboy is nimble of foot and
this may prove the winning factor. On
the other hand, the Chinese boy about
equalizes things with his terrific right
and left wallops. The Chinese champ
is said to put enough steam behind each
blow to knock out a middleweight when
