of Clevelander Who Is

Outfielder WiHe, of Cleveland, wll
jirove a sensation in the Pacific Coast
J.eafrue if the deal for his transfer to
Portland is consummated, in the opin
ion of Delmar Baker, Detroit's sjtar
Baker was in Portland yesterday
from Sherwood conferring- with Walter
McCredie about a prospective barn
- storming tour to the Hawaiian Islands
"AVlIie is a wiry little fellow, about
Pouthworth's size," said Baker. "He is
. extremely fast, a left-handed batter,
and has the happy faculty of beine
able' to hit both right and left-hand
l. pitching- with equal facility.
"I think Wille will be one of the
greatest outfielders in the Coast cir
cuit" Baker Like Ha in tad. Too.
Baker also braised some neat boosts
for Harstad, the Cleveland pitcher, who
is included In the reported transfer of
Cleveland players to Portland.
; Manager McCredie was much elated
' - when he perused The Oregonian yes-
terday and read that both Wilie and
. Harstad were booked for his club.
"It seems too good to be true," he
-. declared. "I haven't heard from Cleve
land yet, but The Oregonian printed
his transfer to Portland several days
ahead of the receipt of my official let
ter from the Cleveland management.
"If Wilie comes, it will mean
that Billy Speas will play utility roles,"
added the Portland leader. "Nixon in
. right. Southworth in left and Wilie In
" ' renter will make a wonderful combina
, tion. Nixon and Speas are right
handed hitters and Southworth and
" Wille are southpaw swingers."
Baseball Colony Breaking Up.
Portland's baseball colony will be al
most depleted tonight with the depar
ture of Delmar Baker for the Detroit
camp at Waxahachie, Tex., and Stan
ley Coveleskie for the Cleveland Spring
- camp at New Orleans.
, Baker and Coveleskie will be Joined
at San Francisco by ' Oscar Stanage,
another Detroit backstop, and the three
of them will travel together as far as
Gus Fisher, Homer Haworth and
Byron Houck are the only other vet
eran ball stars left in Portland. Cur
iously, two of them Haworth and
Houck are in a sorry quandary.
Neither knows to what club he owes
his allegiance if to any.
Haworth Has No Word.
Haworth was with Cleveland last
Fall, and for all he knows directly he
c is to report to the Cleveland club at
" its camp. Manager Fohl, however,
hasn't communicated with him one way
" or the other, and Haworth-is of the
opinion that he is not wanted.
"I have offers from Tacoma, Seattle
- and other Northwest League clubs,"
aid he yesterday. "It seems to me
Cleveland should tell me whether I
have been released or not."
Walter McCredie may give both
Haworth and Houck a trial at the Port
land camp if they find themselves foot
loose. Houck recently was released
back to the Philadelphia Americans by
. the Federal League. Like Haworth. he

UNIVERSITY OF OREGON. Eugene,
Feb. 23. (Special.) Moose Muirhead,
star track man of the University of
Oregon team of last year, arrived on
the campus today from Portland and
announced that he was here .to stay.
Simultaneously with his announcement
came news from Mose Payne, another
of last year's team, who has been hold
ing out in his Kastern Oregon haunts
without telling what he was going to
do, that he would not enter the Uni
versity again until next year.
But the disappointment caused by
Payne's failure to return is more than
balanced by the return of Muirhead,
for he Is one of the most versatile track
men that Bill Hayward has ever
worked with. His return means at
least 15 points in any conference dual
meet and no less than 10 points in the
Northwest conference meet.
Muirhead was developed at Columbia
University at Portland and came to
Oregon last year. He was one of the
best "prep" athletes ever developed in
the Northwest, His return to the Uni

NEW YORK, Feb. 23. "I'll be heavy
weight champion of the world after my
match with Willard," said Frank Moran
as he climbed aboard the train for
Saratoga Springs the other .day.
"There isn't anything in the world
'that can keep me away from the
throne. It's not an overnight idea with
me, this being champion of the world.
I am a great believer in the old saying
that 'things come in threes.' I whipped
Coffey twice 'with knockouts in . the
ring at Madison Square Garden- and
I'm due to win my third in a row. I've
always had things break for me like
that, and I can't see anything but Wil
lard's gilt crown sitting peacefully on
my blonde dome.
Title Sought for Years.
"It has been my hope to be heavy
weight champion of the world since I
was 13 years old. I was sitting on the
bank of the Ohio River one day. I
hadn't anything to do and it didn't
seem that I was going to get anything,
either. I was tossing pebbles into the
water in a careless sort of way when
I suddenly sat up straight and said
aloud: 'What are you going to be when
you are a man?' I sat there trying to
answer my own question. I felt it in
my bones that I would be a big, husky
fellow. Then came' my answer to my
own question. 'I'll be heavyweight
champion of the world,' I said.
"I've cherished that hope year after
year, and year after year I've climbed
closer to the goal. I had a good edu
cation and I've made that count in my
ring work. I don't want to appear
egotistical, but I know that I am going
to outfight, outguess, outslug, ana,
most of all, I'm going to outthink Mr.
Willard. Remember that! I'll out
think him to a certainty.
Moran to Carry Fight,
"Whom has he ever beaten that was
as good as the men that I have knocked
out? Did he ever defeat a man as good
as Al Palzer or Bombardier Wells? I'll
carry the fight to him at such a pace
that he will be bewildered. I can do
'Ask Jim Coffey about that. Jim is
a fast man and as hard a hitter as any
man in the world. He hit me flush on
the chin a number of times during the
first round of our first fight, and he
didn't even knock me back on my heels,
much less down. Willard can't com
pare with him in the matter of speed.
If Coffey couldn't catch Francis
Charles, then you'll not find Mr. Wil
lard doing it. Remember that things
come in threes."
while Walter will combat with Young
jGotch, a formidable middleweight.
Miller is entering this match merely
as a means of getting in condition for
his bout with Eddie O'Connell at the
Eleventh-Street Playhouse here on Feb
ruary 29. Walter writes that he has
had a great time in the Bay City, lie
has taken various means of getting in
shape. Indoor golf, bathing in the surf,
wrestling with amateurs at the Olym
pic Club and working out with Charley
Cutler has afforded him an excellent i
opportunity for conditioning. The pair
will leave San Francisco after the
matches tomorrow night, arriving here
'Connell is out on the road back of
the Multnomah Amateur Athletic Cluo
every morniner and is in the best of
shape. He is working exceptionally
hard with his pupils at the club.
Walter Miller in a letter to a friend
here explains the Kletonen match, over
which there has been much discussion
of late. It reads as follows: "I will
explain the match I had with Wino
Kletonen. I wrestled him at Duluth
Minn., two years ago and the match
went .one hour and 47 minutes without
a fall. I was the aggressor throughout
and would have won, as Kletonen was
only on top of me three minutes during
the entire time. In a mixup I wrenched
my ankle and the referee stopped the
bout despite my protests.
"Kletonen would never give me
return match. He was defeated by
Joe Carr In nine minutes and Carr was
beaten by me in one hour and 50 min
utes, and last May he and I wrestled
two hours arid 36 minutes to a draw at
"Now, these are the facts and you
can take some of the wise guys' money
that are knocking. Kletonen, by the
way, is a light heavyweight and can't
make the middleweight limit.

BY BILLY EVANS.
American League Umpire.
HAT is an infield fly? That
question is often put to me. My
answer is always the same any tiy
ball that in tire Judgment of the um
pire can be handled by an infielder.
A great many people are of the be
lief that an infield fly is governed
by certain set limitations of distance
and height. There are other people
who believe that any fly ball in the
Infield is an infield fly, if first and
second, or first, second and third are
occupied, with less than two out. That
Is not the case, either, for there la
a certain play possiDie in Daseoaii
where the umpire's judgment must
take into serious consideration the
condition that exists on the playing
We will suppose, for instance, that it
is the last half of the ninth inning,
and the score stands 1 to 0 in favor
of the visiting team. The first hope
of the home team is that the score
be tied. The first man up gets a base
on balls. Under the conditions exist
ing the home team should play for
one run. The next batter is instructed
to sacrifice.' He bunts perfectly down
the third-base line. His hope is to
move the runner from first to sec
ond, where it is possible for him to
score on a single. The bunt is perfect.
Not only does the runner on first
advance to second, but the batsman
beats the throw to first. A new con
dition has presented itself. There are
now runners on first and second and
no one out. Apparently the proper
nlav is for the next batter to sacrifice,
with a hope that he may move the
runners to second and third. This
would put the runner on third In a
position to score on a caught fly ball,
and would give both runners a chance
to score on a single.
Now comes the play that involves
the infield-fly rule in dispute. The
team in the field is positive that the
batter will try to sacrifice. Realizing
what it means to keep the runners
from advancing, the team in the field
prepares to make a play at third base
If possible, forcing the runner from
second leaving runners on first and
second, and thereby change the plan
of the team at bat. In order to make
this nlav the entire infield swings
into action as the pitcher delivers the I
ball. The thlra baseman covers mat
bag. so as to be in a position to take
a throw to force the runner from
second. The shortstop moves over
to second, while the second baseman
covers first. The first baseman moves
In swiftly to handle any bunt that
comes down the first-base line, while
the pitcher after delivering the ball
moves hurriedly to the third-base side
to handle bunts in that direction. Thus
It is evident that the infield on this
play Is at once all out of position. It
is impossible for them to handle many
balls that would be easy for them
in their ordinary positions.
The base-runners, realizing that a
defense is planned against them, are
off with the pitch. The batter bunts
a pop fly that falls just back of the
Ditcher s rubber. Two or tnree or tne
players make frantic efforts to catch
It. but it falls sately to tne ground, au
three runners are safe. The team in
the field claims infield fly, which they
insist retires the batter, and since the
runners failed to hold their bases,
claim a triple play after holding the
ball on first and second. It is cus
tomary with American League um
pires never to declare infield fly on a
bunted ball; they Invariably insist that
infielders hold the ball. There is
nothing in the rules that govern such
play, other than tne pnrase wnicn
relates to an infield fly as being a
fly ball other than a line drive that
can be handled by an infielder. It
might be possible to make some excep
tion which would cover a play like
the above one. when an ordinary easy
fly is rendered an impossible catch
because the entire infield has swung
out o position.

There is nothing so offen
sive as a poorly matched and
bad fitting artificial eye. A
high-grade artificial eye not
only adds to the wearer's
nnnparance. but is more
comfortable and less injuri
ous to the eye socket.
Our Artificial Eye Expert
will be here from March 11th
to the 16th. Yoa can see him
nowhere else, and it is quite
likely that this will be his last
visit here for several years.
Mr. Kohler will make you an
eye that no one can detect
from your good eye. If you
are not entirely satisfied you
do not have to take the eye
there is no obligation whatever.
If you desire to see Mr.
Kohler you will have to
make an appointment he
can be seen in no other way,
as the demands on his time
are great. Call, phone or
write the day and hour you
can see him and the time
will be saved for you. Don't
overlook this, perhaps your
last opportunity to secure at
very low cost a natural,
life-like artificial eye.
