THE 3IORXIXO OREGOXIAN, MONDAY, OCTOBER 1, 1917.
BALL PARKS' SIZE
TO LIMIT RECEIPTS
Grounds in New York and in
Chicago Will Only Hold
37,000 Persons Each.
'NTEREST IN SERIES BIG
fn Thirteen AVorld's Series Which
Have Been Played Since 1903
Official Paid Attendance
Totals $1,701,777. '
1TEW YORK, Sept. 30. If the seating
capacity of the baseball parks in which
play will be staged were not limited,
there is no question that new attend
ance records would be established In
the coming world series between the
Chicago Americans and the New York
Nationals. So keen is the interest and
enthusiasm created by this Intersec
tional struggle for diamond supremacy
between the teams of the two largest
cities of the Nation that, under certain
conditions, it is likely even the figures
of IS 12 may be surpassed.
In the coming games the New York
Polo Grounds will seat 37.000 specta
tors, in round numbers, while the Chi
cago White Sox' park, with due allow
ance for any temporary stands that
Comisliey may elect to erect, will not
exceed this paid seating capacity. As
a basi3 of comparison, therefore, the
maximum capacity of either park may
be placed at approximately 37,000.
Many close followers of the playing
ability of the two teams involved have
reached the conclusion that, given any
thing like an even break in the luck of
the game, the series will go at least
six games before a decision is reached.
Big; Attendance Sore.
If this proves to be the case, the to
tal attendance, in round numbers, would
aggregate 2i2,000, as against the 251.
(01 actual paid admissions in the New
York-Boston series of 1912, which, in
cluding one tie contest, went eight
games. In order to surpass these fig
ures, at least seven games between the
New York and Chicago clubs will be
necessary to bring the aagregate at
tendance up to 259.000. The awarding
of the various playing dates as the re
sult of the toss of a coin will have
little, if any, effect upon the attend
ance, as it is predicted that the ca
pacity of both parks will be complete
ly sold out, regardless of the days of
the week on which games will be
played at Chicago or New York.
In the 13 series which have been
played since 1903. the official paid at
tendance amounted to 1,701,777 and the
receipts $2,874,224. giving an average
charge of admission of SI. 67 per spec
tator for each of the 74 games played.
If this same rate were applied to a
seven-game series between Chicago
and New York, the total gat-) receipts
would amount to $432, S30, of v.hich the
National Commission would take f43.
263. the players 14S.296 and the club
ov.'ners about $241,000.
Receipts Are Estimated.
These figures and division of gate
receipts would not exceed those of the
1912 series, however, on the basis of
an average charge of $1.67 -per spec
tator, but in recent years the average
price of admission has been consider
ably increased, as It was about $2.35
per head in the 1916 series. Allowing
for certain proposed reductions, the
rate should not fall much below $2,
which would give approximately $518.
000 for a seven-game series between
the Chicago and New York clubs. This
would exceed by more than $28,000 the
Tecord receipts now credited to the

Refusal of Distributing Plants
to Raise to 12y2 Cents Puts
Producers in Quandary.
DECREASE EXPECTED SOON
City Milk Commission Fears Effect
or Situation Because of Ten
dency of Producers to Dis
pose of Their Herds.
Refusal of the milk distributing
plants to adopt the price of 12 cents
a quart for milk during October, as
recommended by the City Milk Com
mission, has thrown the dairy business
of the city into turmoil.
Some of the dairymen who produce
and distribute their own milk. Jumped
at the opportunity to Increase prices
and announced advanced rates. They
now find their prices mounting: consid
erably above the prices to be main
tained by the distributing plants. These
dairymen had counted on the plants'
raising:, but the plants refused to raise
because the majority of the other dairy
men refused or failed to raise.
No action will be taken for the pres
ent, according: to W. L. Brewster, a
member of the Milk , Commission. He
says the Commission.' after Investigat
ing' every phase of the present serious
milk situation, arrived at the conclu
sion that 12 cents a quart, with that
amount equally divided between the
producer and the distributor, is a fair
price. If either side does not want to
adopt this price. Mr. Brewster says
that is something for that eide or both
sides to work out.
Some Harry to Jump Price.
As soon as the Commission's decision
was made public soom of the dairy
men of the producer-distributor class
forthwith accepted the proposition and
announced advanced rates. Their prices
had been between S3 and S3.25 for ft
quart of milk daily for a month and
they raised all the way from $3.50 to
$3.75. The distributing plants, to have
adopted the Commission's recommenda
tion, would have had to raise to $3.75
to maintain their present scale of profit
for handling- the milk.
But the distributors refused to raise
and therefore the other dairymen are
left in the lurch with prices advanced
considerably in some Instances above
the prices of the distributing- plants.
These dairymen probably will be an
nouncing a revision of rates downward
within a fewdays.
The distributors refused to raise
their prices because the other dairy
men did not all make increases. Had
all made the Jump at the same time
everything- would have been lovely I for
the dairymen), but all didn't, eo the
distributors also didn't.
Situation Little Changed.
The action of the distributors leaves
the situation the same as it always
has Jjeen. Producers who sell their
milk to the distributing: plants are to
get no more for their milk. It was for
the salvation of these producers that
the Milk Commission made its recom
mendation, because these dealers were
found to be in an unprofitable posi
tion since the prices on feed and other
supplies have mounted so high. Dozens
of them are dropping out of business
and dozens of others are reducing the
size of their herds, which means. In all
probability, a milk famine in Portland
next Winter, according to the views
not only of the producers but of the
Milk Commission as well.
The next move probably will be on
the part of the producers, who are
organised under the name of the Ore
gon Dairy League. Just what step
they will take is not known at this
time, but a meeting may be held in
the near future to consider plans.
BEZDEK'S WORK LIKED
OK KG ON COACH SIGNS TO LEAD
PIRATES IX 1018.
Eugene Foetball Mentor on Way to
Take l Grid Duties After Doing
Wonders With Pittsburg.
Hugo Bezdek, who succeeded Jimmy
Callahan as manager of the Pittsburg
National League baseball club several
months ago. haa signed a contract
again to manage the club next sea
son. Bezdek. who is coach of the Univer
sity of Oregon football squad, left
Pittsburg Saturday evening for : a
gene and will arrive late Weanesday
When Bezd-ek took hold of the Pi
rates they were In a demoralized con
dition, but after considerable shifting
around of the players Callahan left
him and with what youngsters he man
aged to purchase and trade, Bezdek's
club looked 100 per cent stronger when
he left Pittsburg than the day he ar
rived to succeed Callahan.
The Pirates might be termed the
"hard-luck" club of the major leagues.
It has lost more games by one run
and played more extra-inning games
than any other club In the league.
That Barney DrejJiiEa, owner of the
Pirates, was satisfied with Bezdek's
accomplishments during the short time
he was with the club is evidenced! by
his signing Bezdek to manage the Pi
rates in 1918.

GIVING IS ESSENTIAL
Rev. Mr. Griffis Discusses
Fundamentals of Religion.
SELF - DENIAL IMPERATIVE
'We Are All Animals as Long as
AVe Live to Get, and Men Only
as AVe Learn to Give,"
At the First Christian Church yes
terday morning Rev. Harold H. Griffis
took as his subject "This Grace Also,"
which he defined as the grace of giving
as interpreted by the apostle Paul.
"In all ages God has made the giving
of property one of the essentials of his
religion," said Rev. Mr. Griffis. "In the
early church as many as were posses
sors of lands and houses sold them and
laid the prices of the things sold at the
feet of the apostles, while the first
scandal of that early church arose in
connection with two grafters, Ananias
and Sapphira, who undertook to hood
wink the Lord by flimflamming the
"The grace of giving, according to
the New Testament, is an individual
grace. Parents are not to give for
children, nor husbands for wives, nor
the rich for the poor. Let each mem
ber understand that however humble
his circumstances may be. the contri
bution plate Is a means of grace and
that he has just as much right to it
as the proudest plutocrat that ever

"The grace of giving is also a self
denying grace. The individual who
never denied himself for the sake of
humanity Is not very far along the
Christian road. Self-denial Is the very
essence of the religion of Jesus. His
invitation is 'if any man would come
after me, let him deny himself and
take up his cross and follow after me.'
The call of Christ is a call to the he
roic. The church is an army snd every
member is called upon to suffer hard
ship as a good Aoldier in Christ Jesus.
There Is no place in our religion for
"The grace of giving is also a cheer
ful grace, according to the New Testa
ment. The Lord loveth a cheerful
giver. Some Christians give only when
they can't help themselves. They give
their money as reluctantly as they
part with their teeth. Such giving has
no place In the New Testament pro
gramme. "Today covetousness is killing more
churches than any other evil practice.
Nothing is more disastrous to the spir
itual life than is the rheumatism of
the heart that is caused by the con
traction of the wallet. The fact is,
we are all animals as long as we live to
get, and men only as we learn to give.
Everyone comes into the world with
his fists tightly clenched and some
folks require an entire lifetime to get
their hands open. The shut hand is
the symbol of animalism; the open
hand Is the emblem of the new man in
Christ JeBus." "
DR. CLARK. TALKS OX AFRICA
Missionary Tells of 3 7 Years Spent
In Congo Country.
Dr. Joseph Clark, of the American
Baptist Foreign Missionary Board, who
addressed a large audience at the White
Temple yesterday afternoon, told of his
37 years' work among the natives of
Africa as a missionary. Dr. Clark, ac
companied by Mrs. Clark, are spending
several days in Portland in the Inter

Working under extreme difficulties.
Mr. and Mrs. Clark have accomplished
a great deal during their 37 years along
the Congo, in darkest Africa, It was
several years before they mastered the
languages, of which there are many,
and for a long time they conversed
with the natives by signs alone.
Mrs. Clark told of her work among
the young people in the Congo country
and of her difficulty In convincing
them that there was something better
than their barbarous warfare. She
told of slavery as it was practiced
along the Congo, and how the women
were made to do the heavy work while
the men stood over them with clubs,
ready to beat them to death if they
Much of this has now been done
away with, say Dr. and Mrs. Clark, by
the natives takiner interest In the two
Bibles which are being read. One of I
these is in English, while the other is
printed in the Swedish language.
It is planned by the young people's
unions of Portland to organize into one
body in the near future and a meeting
for that purpose will be held at the
Y. M. C. A., October 9. The association
proposes to study conditions In Africa
and raise funds for Missionary work
