after a hard . struggle. But one set
was played yesterday because it was
more of an experiment than a real
contest. Several spectators were pres

Manager William F. Scott, of the
Ice Palace, announced after the game
that it was his intention to introduce
Ice tennis formally to Portland fan

yesterday, "it will be hard to play sin

bo played with doubles on the ice.
There is too much territory to be cov
ered and the ball certainly responds
when it hits the ice. It does not ex
actly bounce, but it skids. Just from
te match with Miss Campbell today,
I am convinced that a much better ex
hibition could be offered with doubles
as the main event."

protection to the tender skin.
Mrs. Constance Meyer has been doing
some extraordinary good predicting as
to hockey scores of late. She announced
the correct score of the 6-to-3 victory
over Portland before the match was
staged last Friday night and she says
that Portland will win tonight by a

"I asked Del Howard to play him on
third base the last three weeks of the

some 'basher in uniform he played
them on third the rest of the time, with
Kenworthy remaining on second."
This fellow, "Kopecks" Kenworthy,
is not a bad ballplayer. Far from that.
He has always- been a .300 hitter. He
tied Anthony Brief, of Salt Lake, for
the batting honors of the Coast League
last season, hitting .314 in 200 games.
He fielded .964. With the Kansas City
Feds in 1915 he hit .299 in 121 games,
fielding .931, and the year previous,
with the same club, hit .316 in 146
games, fielding .952. William J. has
always played second base. He cap
