Rube Oldham was wild at Oakland
today, walking- nine men. but his sup
port was sparkling- In the pinches and
he finished on top of a 3 to 2 score, and
as Salt Lake lost, the Seals hopped
back into first place.
The fielding- of Downs and Tick was
sensational. Pick saved Oldham in the
sixth when he took a fast skipper right
over third base and winged Ken 'Will
iams out at the plate. Also he robbed
Siglin of a hit when he made that play.
The Eeavers were strong: In that
round, for Farmer got a double and
Williams pickled one for three sacks,
but Pick's grreat play put on the
Siglin grot a double in the eighth and
was legging; it for home with the tying;
run when Schaller backed up against
the left field fence and pulled down
Ilouck's long fly.

MAGNATES ARE WORRIED
CONDITIONS IX SEVERAL MINOR
LEAGUES NOT PLEASING.
Lack of Interest on Account of Wai
Cuts Down Attendance Schedules
May Be Abandoned This Year.
NEW YORK, May 17. That the base
ball situation in the American Asso
ciation is causing the officers of that
organization, as well as other minor
leagues, considerable worry became
known here today as the result of the
visit of President T. J. Hickey to this
city. The American Association ex
ecutive held several secret conferences
with prominent baseball authorities, in
cluding President John K. Tener, of
the .National i,eague. ana 1'resldent Ed
ward G. Barrow, of the International
Conditions in several of the minor
leagues are far from satisfactory and
the possibility of discontinuing one or
more of the organizations for the te
riod of the war has been considered, it
was learned. News reports stated that
the Virginia League had decided to
disband and that the Mobile club of the
Southern League had forfeited its fran
chise because of lack of interest, due to
It has been suggested that a general
reduction in both the number of players
per club and their salaries be made In
order to effect retrenchments. Other
magnates hold that it would be better
to abandon the present season sched
ules and await the return of normal
President Hickey, of the American
Association, in making the announce
ment, said the association will play two
championship schedules instead of
meeting the International League clubs
in the post-season series. The sched
ules will consist of 77 games each. The
two winning clubs will meet in a seven
game series to decide the champion
ship of the association.
The season, under the present plan,
will end September 18, unless the war
situation forces the club owners to
take other action.
After Congress has acted on the pro
posed tax on baseball, the association
club owners will meet and take what
ever action is necessary to adjust con
ditions, according to George Tebeau,
owner of the Kansas City club.
. Announcement Held Premature.
NEW YORK, May 17. President Ed
ward G. Barrow, of the International
League, declared tonight that any an
nouncement of the inter-league series
with the American Association having
been called off was premature, to say
the least. No such step could be taken,
he said, without the consent of the
International League, and he denied
that the organization he heads had
been approached on the subject.

BY ROSCOE FAWCETT.
Indicative of the sincere desire of
the golfing contingent to do its "bit"
in the National crisis. It was an
nounced here yesterday by C. 11.
Davis, Jr., president of the Taclfic
Northwest Golf Association, that money
heretofore appropriated for trophy
cups for the annual tournament would
this year be given to the Red Cross
and various other war relief organiza
The 1917 Pacific Northwest cham
pionships are scheduled to be held in
Portland June 25-30 on the llnKs or
the Waverley Country Club. Judging
from advance entries and the in
creased interest that is sure to result
from this patriotic promulgation or
the "powers that be," the 1917 tour
ney gives promise of eclipsing all
predecessors in enthusiasm and num
ber of participants.
"The directors of the association
have authorized the Waverley Country
Club to provide Inexpensive medals
and donate the balance of the prize
money to the various war relief funds,"
explained President Davis in issuing
his statement. "This will make the
1917 tournament more or less of a
U'u Preparedness Urged.
"War is like an arrow shot into the
air you cannot tell where it will
land. If the exigencies of war make
it necessary to close the ball parks,
to take the powder from the trap
shooters and to convert the golf links
into potato patches, it may then be
advisable to do away with tourna
ments altogether. In the meantime
we should all be prepared. Those not
now eligible for military service can
best serve their country by maintain
ing present physical efficiency
"While the abandonment of golf and
other beneficial ' sports at this time
appeals to us as an act of supereroga
tion, yet we feel that the golf clubs
should co-operate to their fullest ex
tent. And thus the plan to do away
with the expensive golf prizes. We are
all helping out in every way possible,
and all golfers, I am sure, will take
an even greater interest in the tour
nament under this patriotic pro
gramme." President Davis Is in receipt of let
ters from Clyde M. Graves, Spokane,
secretary of the association; Dr. P. W.
McCrimmon. Butte; Chester Thome,
Tacoma, ex-president of the associa
tion; W. J. Patterson, Aberdeen; C. S.
Battle, Vancouver. B. C; J. C. Will
iams. Seattle, and other directors in
dorsing his original suggestion.
Canadians Approve Plan
Recently President Davis visited
Vancouver and when he broached the
idea of donating to the Red Cross
fund the Canadians were unanimous
in expressing their approval.
It looks now as though there would
be close to 200 entries in the tourna
ment. Among the welcome additions
of the past few days are Harold Lamb
and Walker Salisbury, of Salt Lake,
two of the most expert In that coun
try. The Waverley greens committee Is
wrestling with a new problem grow
ing out of the threatened high water
In the Willamette River. If the river
rises much beyond the 21-foot mark
it may crowd the golfers off the 17th
fairway entirely. To provide for this
emergency Waverley intends now to
prepare an entirely new fairway be
tween the present 15th and the 17th
fairways, the tee to be located just
south and west of the present 16th.
The 17th green is above high water,
so It will not be necessary to build a

Mitchell, of the Vernon club, according
to charges made by the big Tiger
Mitchell was one of the principals
In a fist fight on the Washington Park
diamond Sunday afternoon. Shortstop
O'Mara, of Oakland, was his opponent,
and those who saw the finish of the
affair say that O'Mara was saved from
a trouncing by his teammates.
The trouble started several weeks
ago when Chance accused Mitchell of
using the "bean" ball. Since then Mitch
ell has grown wilder In his pitching,
and he believes the managers have
started a crusade against him.
"It was Howard who egged on
O'Mara in his attempt to pick a fight
with me," said Mitchell. "He. like
Chance, knew me when 1 had perfect
control, and he thinks my wildness Is a
deliberate attempt to use the 'bean
"As a matter of fact. I've been trou

Portland Fans Will See Alex
Trambitas in Action.
VETERAN NEGRO OPPONENT
Carl Morris, Oklahoma Ciiant, tiets
Chance to Pave Way for Crack
at Wlllard's Crown In Tangle
With Moran Tonight.
BY HARRY GRAYSON.
Portland fans will give Alex Tram
bitas the "once over" tonight. He will
box ten three-minute rounds with Lee
Johnson, negro veteran from Oakland,
in the main event of the Evergreen
Athletic Club's show to be held in the
post gymnasium, Vancouver Barracks.
The first bout will start at 8:30 o'clock.
There will be three six-round pre
liminaries: 133 pounds. Carl Hansen
vs. Floyd Mclrvln: 135 pounds. Muggsy
Schoels. of Cheyenne, vs.. Soldier Mc
Donald; 125 pounds. "Skeeter" Heffer
nan vs. Ed Zaharls.
Promoters Moriarlty and Smith may
put on one more scrap, featuring Jim
my Moscow against a good lightweight.
Jack Grant will referee all of the
bouts. Six-ounce gloves will be worn
by the contestants.
Tonight's battle between Trambitas
and Johnson promises to bring out a
lot of Portland fans who have not
been to a show for a long time. Every
one who has seen the youth perform
in the gymnasium predicts a brilliant
future for him. His slashing, tearing
style and natural ability, coupled with
the faculty he has shown to learn
things fast, has caused wise heads to
declare that he will Btop Johnson in
eight or ten rounds.
George Moore, who handles Johnson,
Insisted that a third rope be strung
around the ring. Whether he thinks
that Johnson is going to be rushed
against the hemp continually or wheth
er he fears that his boy will knock
Trambitas out of the ring Is not known.
They will weigh around 128 pounds.
Having put out Fred Fulton's light
and having established himself as a
more rugged battler than Jim Coffey,
ponderous Carl Morris Is ready to
tackle a pugnacious gentleman by the
name of Francis Moran. The big event
it is a big event for Morris is sched
uled for the Harlem Sporting Club,
New York, tonight. The outcome means
everything to the man from Oklahoma.
Morris is at the end of a campaign
which he hopes will land him in the
ring with Jess Willard. So far he has
managed to climb over two stumbling
blocks that were shoved in his path by
promoters. In Moran the ambitious
Morris is going to run into the biggest
obstruction on his horison. for Sir
Francis is the trial horse that must be
brushed aside by any heavy weight who
hopes to trade wallops with Willard.
In punching his way to a muss with
Moran, Morris has not shown the ear
marks of a world beater. He is not a
crafty ring man. He is not fast and
clever. But he Is tough and willing.
He believes he can defeat any heavy
weight who will stand up and trade
punches with him. Moran and Morris
will go ten rounds.
Mike Gibbons admits he's worth
$170,000. And yet there are able-bodied
men who waste their time In col
lege. Carl Hansen is being picked as a
probable winner over Floyd Mclrvln
tonight. Tf he is the same boy who
UHed to do so well against the 125
pounders a couple of years ago he fig
ures to cop the bacon hands down.
Mclrvln Is something of plodder, but
Is game and always trying. They
ought to provide a great battle.
