Worried and harassed by his con
stantly growing hospital list Walter
McCredle telegraphed north yesterday
and ordered Bill Rodgers back Into
harness. The Portland captain has
been out of the game for nearly a
month with a fractured shoulder. With
Hollocher. Pinelli and Borton on the
shelf, however. Mack doubtless figured
Rodgers would strengthen the team
even with his fractured clavical.
Rodgers has been rusticating at
Judge McCredie's hot springs near
Eugene, but upon receipt of his
superior's command, he came to Port
land and left last night In company
with his young son for San Fran
cisco. McCredle is quoted as being much
peeved at the Chicago Cubs for fail
ing to deliver Southpaw Reuther Just
when Mack needed him. When Mails
Jumped the club the Beavers were in
dire need of a new pitcher and this
consideration is said to have been one
of the main points In the transaction
whereby Hollocher was sold to the
McCredle demanded a new pitcher
and Reuther was promised. Now it
comes from the Windy City that Cin
cinnati has refused to waive on
Reuther and Portland Is left in the
Last week will go down In local
baseball history as "chipped beef '
week because quite a number of the
athletes had chips taken off their
anatomies. Hollocher had to quit with
a lame arm; Klllefer slid Into Pinelli
at third and cut a gash in his knee
that may lay the lnfielder up for a
fortnight and Babe Borton sustained a
hernia on the left side that may put
him on the ailing list for the entire
season. Dr. Spence, of Los Angeles,
examined Babe and after his diagnosis
said the Beaver firt sacker would be
lucky to get back into the game at
all this year.
These injuries, the Jumping of Walter
Mails and Sunday's announcement that
Cincinnati had refused to waive on
Southpaw Reuther can lead to only one
conclusion, to-wit: that old man Jinx
Is on the Beavers" trail.
Both Coast League leaders, the Seals
and Angels fattened off the second
division lambs last week. While the
Angels were drubbing the Beavers six
games of the seven, San Francisco
maintained its margin by trimming the
Oaks six times in seven starts.
Hollocher was going great guns last
week up to his injury. In nine times
at bat the young shortstop hit .556.
Siglin batted .370, Williams came back
with .308, Wilie .280, Griggs .273,
Farmer .261. Fisher .222 and Baldwin
.130. Hunter, the lnfielder released
by Vernon and signed in the pinch by
Portland, batted .300.
One surprise last series was the
beating administered to Salt Lake by
the lowly Vernons. The Tigers won
five out of seven games.
YOTTXGSTEK'S DIVING AMAZES
Little Son of Jimmie Richardson
Makes lilt at San Francisco.
James J. Richardson, the Beaver
scout, has Just received a letter from
Norman Ross, champion swimmer, who
has been startling the world by his
sensational performances. George
Richardson, son . - "Jimmle," Is visiting
In San Francisco, his birthplace, and, as
a guest of Ross, he was taken to t-ie
Olympic Club and persuaded to give a
diving exhibition. Young Richardson
Is a pupil of Jack Cody's, and during
the Rose Carnival gave a diving exhi
bition during the swimming champion
ships. According to Ross, the youngster
startled the Southern fans. He writes:
"Had your boy up to the Olympic
Club today. George is some diver for
r little tad. Had all the kids stand
ing around watcning him. Ought to
be a champion some day. Sid Cavill 13

A GOOD yarn Involving "Rowdy" El

Bush and one of his pals visited the

were sunning themselves on the beach

"Thash wash the tide coming in."
Shortly afterward Bush was umpir
ing a game in San Francisco, one of
the few parks in the country where
the sale of liquor on the grounds is
permitted. Along about the middle of
the game one of the garcona fell with a
whole tray of beer glasses and the
noise was deafening. Turning around.
Bush asked: "What was that?"
"That." said Rowdy Elliott, who was
catching, "was the tide coming In."
"Five bucks for you and out of the
game!" roared Bush; "that will teach
you to get flip with your tongue."

towards sea. Officials promptly in
voked the law against them and 17
were fined by the Justice of the Peace.
One man who had been prominent in
the violation was fined $100, but the

got a sick spell and was laid up for
nearly five months. He will rest up
for a few weeks here and will then be
ready to meet any middleweight the

for him. He would like to step over
the 10-round route with Dick Wells, in
Vancouver, or any other 158-pounder in
the Northwest. Trambitas could have
met Frank Barrieau, Pacific Coast
middleweight champion. In San Fran

of the Pacific Coast, is back in Seattle
after passing about a year in Los An

one bout while in the South, that to
