LOS ANGELES. Cal., April 1. (Spe
cial.) Too much class and some
mighty Quick pad work by Carisch in
the eighth proved the undoing of the
Aneels and they dropped today s game
to the Beavers, 4 to 2, after a. 10-in-
nins struggle. All told, i'i men were
in the irauie at one time- or another,
two of these bein pinch hitters for
the Angels in the tenth? and both failed
to deliver the goods.
The Angels outhit the Beavers, 10 to
seven, but most of the binglcs canio
when no one was on or with two down
Evans pitched a fine game up to the
irhth when he was yanked after
Volter had tripled, scoring Harper, who
was running for Boles. Lvans' worK
didn't merit his yanking, but McCredie
evidently intended to take no chances,
and sent Coveleskic to the bullpen.
Carlarh Saves Game.
With the score S to 2. and Wolter on
third in the eighth, iletzger dumped
the ball about 10 feet in front of the
plate for what seemed a sure bunt.
Wolter tore for the plate and Carisch
tore for the ball. They both met on
the base, but the cx-Nap happened to
be out In front a foot and Wolter was
declared out. No one expected Carisch
could turn the trick, but he did, and It
waved the game right there for the
singles by Speas. Derrick and Stumpf
In the fourth, with some mighty rotten
fle'.ding by the Angela, gave the Beavers
a lead of two runs. The Angels took
one in the sixth on Boles' triple and
Love's single, and tied it in the eighth.
Chech Goes AVild and Loses.
In the tenth Chech, who had replaced
Love, had a, wild streak, and passed
both Davis and Derrick. Kisher, hitting
for Carisch, singled Davis in. Doane
forced Fisher, Derrick going to third,
and then he and Doane pulled a beau
tiful double steal. Derrick scoring. The
Angels tried hard to get up in their
half, but Meek and Ryan fell down in
the pinch. Evans caught two men
asleep off first in the second inning
and got a good hand for his work. The
Beavers had too much class today and
1 1 the luck, and that's what wins ball

UNIVERSITY OF OREGON. Eugene,
April 1. (Special.) The last week of
rain has seriously handicapped the Ore

become so sloppy that it is impossible

'and rny men unable to get in any real

There hasn't been a day this week

relay race are experiencing difficulty
in making room for the large number

than 100 high schools have signified
their intention of being on hand, and
they have been put into 13 class

The response from the colleges this

Not only will the relay, champion

Johnson Visits Races.
Johnson took a short run in the
morning to a private bath in the harbor,
where he swam for the greater part of
an hour. When the rain began to fall
in the afternoon he decided to cut out
his exhibition in the open stadium. In
stead, he went to the races, where he
was the object "of much attention.
M. J. Hlnkel, of Cleveland, was
named today alternate referee. In case
of inability of Jack Welsh to act Hin-

Bob Vernon, of New York, was ap
pointed timekeeper for the club, with
Ben Harris, also of New Tork, as al
ternate. Sam Leon, of Toronto, is the
timekeeper for Johnson.
Willard named Otto Floto, of Denver,
as his timekeeper.
Willard Plans Victorious Tour. '
Willard and his followers are so con
fident of victory that they have planned
triumphant entry into the United
States of the "new champion" a few
days after the battle. They expect to
make a tour of the principal cities of
Cuba on April 6 and 7 if Willard's con
dition permits, and then go to New
York by way of Key West, stopping at
various places en route. Willard ex
pects to be the principal figure at a
great reception in Madison Square gar
den. Later, he says, he will make a
trip around the world. His plan is
much like the one made by Jeffries
previous to his defeat at Reno. He has!
no particular plans if he should lose.
Willard says that fighting is a busi
ness proposition with him and that he
bears no enmity toward his opponent.
He says that he will enter the ring
calm and determined to win because
he needs the money and knows he can
win in the prizering.
Johnson Bears Xo Knmlty.
Johnson, too, says he has no hard
feelings for his opponent, and would
like to be oh friendly terms with all
of them before and after his fights. He
boxes because there is money in it and
not for the love of fighting.
Johnson has interests in France and
after his bout with Willard expects to
return to the Continent and settle down
for good. If he wins over Willard he
probably will visit South America for
exhibition bouts before going to n.u
rope, but if he loses he will return to
France at once. As a winner, he will
be able to make plenty of money by
giving exhibitions. It is the greatest
desire of his life to retire as unde
feated heavyweight champion of the
Johnson and Willard have met on two
occasions since they came to Havana,
but thev exchanged only a few words
Previously they had never met. John
son encountered Willard unexpectedly
last night. The champion was dressed
as usual in a white flannel suit, white
hat and white shoes, and was wearing
a big diamond stud and rings, wuiara
was dressed modestly in a blue suit
and Panama hat. He also was wearing
a large diamond stud.
Negro Appears Nervous.
1 Johnson seemed studiously to avoid
paying the slightest attention to his
antagonist, talking ' loudly to his
friends. Willard in the meantime care
fully watched Johnson's every move.
Outwardly Johnson is all confidence,
but in the privacy of his training quar
ters he views the fight seriously. This
is something new in Johnson and
causes many of his followers to be
lieve that he looks for a hard match.
Willard does not seem to be at all
nervous over the approaching battle,
hut he is under a strain nevertheless.
The mere glamor of the championship

Owing to an excess of moisture Port

"Rube" Foster's famous Chicago col
ored Giants yesterday-against an All-
Star City League cast. "Rube" was
here with his dark horde, however, and
before he submerged for the run to
Seattle the 240-pounder let drop th
interesting remark that the Portland
Coast club is the strongest McCredi

And "Rube" ought to know because
he has met the Mackmen in a special

this 1915 club. Mack has a bunch of
good pitchers. Of the youngsters
like Coveleskie best, because he has
all the natural requirements. Leonard
beat us 1-0 in the final game, but, even
so, I don t believe he will ever becom
a Coast Leaguer. He pitches only on
way. Callahan is young and promising.
'Stumpf at second base. In my Judg

Rodgers," added Manager Foster. "That
Is a strong statement In view of th
fact that Rodgers is now In the big
leagues. Stumpf looks to me like

fielders in the world on my club and
yet they couldn't accustom themselves
to that rough Fresno diamond UK

Rodgers and I really believe he will hit
just as well, although Rodgers is
great pinch . hitter.

cent stronger than it was laBt season.
Carisch is a better catcher today than
Chief Meyers, of the New lork Giants.
I know because we were In tne feoutn

ago, when Meyers and Carisch caught
for the San Diego club, side by side.
Carisch isn't as strong at the bat as
Meyers, but he is a wise man behind
"Thev were all shaking their heads
at Fresno about Shortstop Murphy, but
he looked all right to me."
Foster is in close touch with the big
league ball situation and he does not

go broke it will be merged with the

The Colored Giants left early last
night for Tacoma and Seattle.
Bill Rodgers was all to the good in
Cleveland's 3-2 10-tnning victory over
New Orleans last Sunday. Bill nagged
three hits in four trips and it was his
double and Jackson's single in tne mtn

the Naps and allowed only two nits.
"Red" Kuhn told a Los Angeles
newsnanerman that his salary with the
White Sox was $600 a month and that

In accordance with President Mur

nian will hereafter refrain from call
ing the new Salt Lake club "The
Mormons." It seems odd. however,
that a hustling directorate like the
new Salt Lake ball bunch couldn't
have chosen an original title for its
team. The Victoria Northwest club
has been known as the Bees for three
years and Victoria plagiarized on a
league that was organized on Mt
Ararat a few centuries ago. One San
Francisco newspaper suggests that the
Salt Lakers be called the "Salts," but
this might be found offensive to the
Utah folk, should they wake up some
morning and read "Portland Has Taken
Salts Down the Line." For the same
reason Epsoms will not do and Utes

approval, and, for the good of the

It was contended by many of the
union governors that the marathon rule
proposed, although it is now in force in
competitions held by the International
Athletic Federation, including the
Olympic games, is an inhuman pro
vision and that there was no good rea
son why the Amateur Athletic Union
should make such demands of runners
in races in this country.
