BY ROSCOE FAWCETT.
Portland and San Francisco might
Just as well have quit after one inning
of their opening ball fracas yesterday.
The score at the close -of the initial
stanza stood 5-1 in Portland's favor
and that is how it ended, inasmuch as
Byron Houck pitched rings around
three Peal twirlers "Indian" Smith,
Olaf Erlckson and "Indian" Johnson.
The Beavers greeted the first big
redskin. Lou Smith, with a veritable
barrage fire of base knocks. Six lurid
swats scrambled in and interwoven
with wild heaves by Smith and Charley
Pick in the first Inning chased so many
of the home guard around the bases
that some of the "boys nearly sprung
"Indian" Smith Bumped.
Jerry Downs, who manages the Seals
now that Wolverton has nothing to do
but draw salary, yanked Smith before
the finish of the tempestuous first
frame. Erlckson pitched air-tight ball
until the eighth when Calvo batted for
him. "Chief Johnson, the big aborig
ine recently acquired by the Seals from
Vernon, twirled the final inning.
Byron Houck's superb pitching and
the highly sensational fielding of Denny
Wilie out in the left garden featured
the sunny day pastime. They were
sort of co-related. With Dennie's as
sistance on three or four occasions,
Byron was enabled to hold the league
leaders to a scrimpy four safe hits.
Houck seems to be fully Justifying
the confidence placed in him by his
friends, for he has been pitching won
derful ball the last several weeks.
Seals Attempts Flivver.
It wasn't in the cards for the Peals
to win. Everything they tried fliv
vered. If red hair was selling at $66,-
402 a cubic yard, Jerry Downs' would
have fallen out or turned to pink. Jer
emiah hit a line drive over second
base in the first inning that ordinar
ily would have been safe. Siglin hap
pened to be covering and speared it.
Downs later hit a ball that missed the
left field home run boundary by 10
To cap the afternoon of misfits and
misfortunes, Jerry pulled a "skull" in
the ninth inning. Downs was on deck
to bat when Maisel struck out. The
pitch went wide and Fisher managed
only to knock it down under Downs
hoofs. The obliging Seal manager there
upon scooped it up and handed said
sphere to Fisher, amidst loud guffaws
in the stands for Umpire Finney lm
mediately called Maisel out.
Wllle's Hit Scores Two.
The Seals scored their one run in
the first inning on a double to left by
Pick and Schallera single to right.
Hollocher opened for the Beavers by
walking. Pinelli bunted and advanced
to second on Smith's overthrow to
first. Wilie scored both of them with
a Texas league two-bagger over third
base. After Williams' oat, Borton lined
a single to right, scoring Wilie. Griggs
made his bow as a Beaver by doubling
to left, scoring a moment later on
Pick's wild chuck to second base to
catch Siglin. Siggy registered the fifth
and final tally on Fishers eingl
About 1200 fans were otit.

Victory Over Johnson and House Easy
and Great Future Is Predicted
for loDDSMlers. .
Allen Hofmann and Kenneth Smith
yesterday defeated Everett Johnson
and H. S. House, 6-4, 6-2, 6-0, and won
the doubles title of the annual Spring
handicap tournament at the Irvington
These two youngsters were never in
danger, playing a wicked driving game
and taking advantage of every easy
drive offered by their opponents.
Both youngsters have been playing a
wonderful game of tennis, and if they
keep their pace up there will be no
telling where they will end. They look
like championship class already. Both
are built for the tennis game and both
have made a record already in play.
Great things seem in prospect for the
Irvington Club's youthful talent devel
oped already this season.
Of course, Johnson and House, ex
perienced men, were playing under i
heavy handicap, but the youngsters
