BY HOSCOE FAWCETT.
One more wiggle and Portland -will
b out of the Coast Leasrue cellar.
Coveleskle twirled remarkably efficient
ball yesterday, and, while his "spit
ters" were breaking all over the place,
Portland was knocking the tar out of
three Oakland twirlers. Result. Port
land walloped the Oaks in. the opening
Came of the "cellar championship" by
the lop-eared score of 9-0.
One thousandth of a point is all
that is keeping the Beavers in the base
ment and the way the Oaks played yes
terday that one thousandth doesn't look
any more formidable than a Chinese
pheasant in front of a steamroller.
I.rrrrrm Best With "I)ean Ball."
Southpaw Leverenz, who hasn't
aligned his name to a local hotel reg
ister since away back in the days when
he pitched for Los Angeles, was Man
ager ISlliott's original slab choice.
"I-rf-fly" didn't seem to have returned
with much of anything from St. Louis,
not even a cane or a -mustache.
Beg pardon, he did show a nice
Leverenz hit Speas and Fisher, in the
first inning, and these wild shots, to
gether with a walk, a two bagger by
Lober and Bates' single, caused Man
ager Elliott to yank Leverenz In favor
of Klawitter before one Inning was
Bfavrin Take Lead at Jump.
Three runs in the first frame gave
the Beavers a running headstart and
with Coveleskie pitching like a demon
there wasn't a chance for the Oaks. .
Klawitter pitched until the sixth
inning, yielding three more runs, and
then KUiott trotted out a rookie named
Carberry. Carberry was tapped for the
final trio of tallies. After Ward's rather
"Texy" two bagger in. the sixth, Billy
Sonthworth jarred Cranberry 6i was
it Carberry? by knocking the ball over
the right field fence for a home run,
driving Ward in with him.
After that the young right hander
pitched evenly, although he had a ter
rible time trying to hold the Beaver
speed merchants on the baas. Stumpf
purposely drew a throw to first base
and was off so far that he beat the
relays to second, and Derrick a mo
ment later ran wild. He stole second
and then third, while the Oaks were
frantically throwing the spheroid
around the bases.
Stunipf Maken Great Play.
In this same inning the seventh
Stumpf electrified the railbirds by scor
ing from second base on Bartholemy's
infield grounder. Bart caught the last
three innings. ,
Roxy Middleton, of the Oaks, featured
the fielding with a shoelace catch of a
liner by Vard. Roxy tore up about
teni feet of divot with his chin, but
came up with the ball clutched in his
fingers like a free lunch.
In the nine innings Coveleskie fanned
eight men and walked only one. He
whiffed all three in the sixth inning
Mow, Hosp and Middleton and made
it four straight by fanning Johnson as
first man up in the seventh.
Stow, Hosp and middy are all new
men in the infield since the Oaks last
appeared in Portland. The score:

OAKS LEADER SAYS
FANS ARE QUITTERS
Jack Cook Declares Teams
Lose Heavily in Trips
PAST AID NOT COUNTED
Koivdj- Elliott Says He AVill Be
at Helm for Commuters at
Start of Next Season and
Says Team Will Be Factor.
Pacific Coast League directors down
south are much "peeved" at the lack
of attendance at the games In Port
land this year. -j. P. Cook "Genial
Jack," as the vice-president of the Oak
land club is known hereabouts said as
much yesterday when he arrived in the
city with his ball club.
"TVe're going to vote, Portland out
and give the franchise to Vallejo or
Taft or Scappoose," said the golfing
magnate, jokingly. "You've had too
many winners here. The novelty is all
gone and just because you run into a
losing club one year like the rest of us
have quite often, your fans quit cold.
Teams coming up here are .under a
weekly expense of at least $2500 in
cluding salaries, carfare, berths, hotels
and overhead, and about the best they
get tfrom one week here is $1000 to
$1500. I don't suppose San Francisco
got $700 here last week, when your
Sunday ganes were canceled by the
Portland Big Aid tn Pout.
- "Isn't it true that Portland was a
veritable gold mine for the league in
1310 and 1911. when Walt McCredie
won his first string of consecutive pen
nants?" was asked.
"Yes," replied the visiting magnate.
'But these are hard times and every
city should support its ball club, win
ning or losing."
"Are you in facor of admitting Seat
tle and Spokane into the league provid
ing they can get loose from the North
western League?" was asked. "Wouldn't
that help bear part of the transporta
tion load of the long jumps from San
Francisco to Portland and back?"
"I don't know," replied Mr. Cook.
"I'm in favor of 16 teams if it will
strengthen the league. I'm still boost
ing for allejo," he added, quite non
chalantly. Elliott Expects to Keep Birth.
Harold Elliott, whose name used to
be "Rowdy" Elliott, and who is now
managing Mr. Cook's Oakland ball club.
is just as good natured as his boos,
and, to prove that he is a "bear" for
punishment, Manager Elliott declared
with vehemence that he expected to
be retained as field general for 1916.
"Yes, sir," he said, "I'll be here again
next year as manager of the Oaks and
we'll have a first-division club, too.
You'll note that we have made many-
changes since we were here last. If
the club had been in third place when
I took hold it would have been there
Elliott was immnsely pleased because
the Chicago Cubs failed to exercise
their option on Jimmy Johnston.
"It's pretty hard to pick up a ball
player like Jimmy in the Spring," ex
Manager Elliott expects to pitch
Prough today against either Higgin
botham or Evans. Wynn Noyes. the
new Portland pitcher, is here from Spo
kane and was out in uniform yester
day. He will pitch one game this week.

' FOR PHEASANTS FRIDAY.
Lakes Dried by Long Dry Weather.
Many Pari lea to Vault Wild
for Larger Game.
With the opening of the duck and
pheasant season October 1 but two
off. local hunters are oiling up their
u.uiiueruusses, ior prospects are bright
for some of the finest pheasant shoot
ing enjoyed in this state for some
time. Ducks will be scarce, however,
due to the continued dry spell, and. as
many duck lakes have been dried up, a
majority of duck hunters will have to
be content with bagging the toothsome
pheasants for the first part of the sea
son, at any rate.
Several duck clubs near Portland will
not suffer from the Summer's low wa
ter, however, fas they already have
their lakes partially filled. Gas en
gines were used in pumping the water
Into the lakes and, according to re
ports, the ducks are already beginning
to make themselves at home.
Among the large list of prominent
Prtlanders who will slip away for a
few days' pheasant hunting are City
Auditor Barbur and his chief clerk. Rav
Watkins. They are planning a trip of
several days, which will start the first
day of the season.
J. C. Morris and Bert Pilkington, a
former Multnomah Club fotball player,
will try their luck at pheasant shooting
the first day of the season.
Jack Meyer, prominent in angling
circles, will pass up the duck and
pheasants in the hoep of bagging some
larger game. He will visit the West
Fork district and hopes to bag the
limit in deer.
J. S. Crane and Al Seguin will open
the duck season by trying their luck on
the Tony Barber place below Scappoose.
This has been a favorite duck hunting
reserve for numerous Portland hunters
for several seasons.
Dr. William Hare and Cliff Stout will
go after pheasants on their place at the
end of ihe Rose City carline, the open
ing day of the season.
Joe Stutt has just returned from a
deer hunt in Southern Oregon, and
everyone in his party brought back the
limit, according to reports.
So plentiful were the deer and other
big game in the Southern Oregon dis

Because the hunters are becoming
rather restless stringent efforts are be
ing mado by the game department to
have more deputy wardens out for vio
lators. Deputy Game Warden K. H.
Clark yesterday took C. O. Blakely. of
Fairview, Or., in tow charged with
shooting pheasants in closed season.
He will be arraigned in the District

Since its introduction by J. D. Bar

this institution, the measure has been
thoroughly overhauled by alumni mem
bers, students and friends of the uni
versity. The abolition movement was launched
some three months, although facts were
not made public until late this last
Of the S00 students in the liberal art
courses not one has expressed himself
as in favor of Dr. Barnett's measure.
This is even more characteristic of the
women than of the men.
StntUUcn Cited an Arcnmeot.
Men in athletics intercollegiate at
the university have cited various opin
ions about the "abolition." They were
all willing to admit that if intercol
legiate athletics did "affect scholar
ship, professionalize athletics and In
crease the student body tax." then they
were wrong and that tliey (the ath
letes) would be the first ones to up
bold Dr. Barnett's measure.
However, statistics have proved that
men engaged in athletics have managed
to "pull down" higher grades than those
who were not. and that those partici
pating were not.doing so because they
were paid to play, but because they
loved the game, and that money taxed
students to witness the various campus
contests was a saving rather than an
expense. It is more economical to buy
a season ticket than to pay at the gate.
The season ticket is cheaper in the
Athlete Least Favored Student.
These were the three principal fea
tures of Dr. Barnett's argument, and
from a student standpoint they are
It Is a known fact that at Oregon
the athlete has fewer lavors from the
faculty than the ordinary student.
If the athlete gets "posted" he is
forced to "grind" before he again is
eligible to compete. This holds true
with any college and is a rule strictly
enforced. Also, the college professor

standing closer than the ordinary man.
"The question of abolishing inter
collegiate athletics will be discussed,
but not necessarily settled," said John
Straub. dean of the college of liberal
arts and the oldest man in point of
service on the Oregon faculty. "How
ever," he added, "the movement will
receive thorough consideration.
ItrHultant Disaster at O. A. C. Shonn.
"Intercollegiate athletics were abol
ished at O. A. C. some 16 years ago
with disastrous results. Abolition only
lasted for one year. The question in
volved in this case hinges on whether
or not Idaho. Whitman, O. A. C. and
Washington would make similar ar
rangements." Fred C. Ayer, professor of education,
savs: "I do not favor the abolishment
of intercollegiate athletics or think that
it will be done. There are positive edu
cational advantages in athletic con
tests." William L. Hayward. director of ath
letics, declares: "If athletics interfere
with class work, then drop athletics;
but as long as the athlete is getting
good grades and Is not being hurt
physically, then intercollegia.U athletics
are a wonderful recreation."
Various other opinions were ex
pressed, but many of the faculty pre
ferred not to give their views.

showing a decided improvement in
their offensive tactics. The same
routine will feature each afternoon for

Scarcely a limp shows as evidence of
the men's tussel with the Multnomah

initial battle with a team so heavy as

with a long list of Injured.
However, after a thorough steaming
