About. 20 athletes were out on Mult
nomah field yesterday basking in the
sun and limbering up their muscles.
Many of the baseball enthusiasts at
Multnomah club who will play on the
various Sunday morning house club
league teams took advantage of the
'balmy breeze" and sping weather to
stop a few hot ones and chase files on
tho club diamond. The outlook for a
crack club first team is the most
promising in many seasons at Multno
mah club. Another Al twirler devel
oped in the person of Carl Knudsen at
vesterday's practice. Knudsen was the
leading high school pitcher for several
seasons while at Lincoln, ana also
pitched some great
nrlependent ball,
His younger brother. Ralph Knudsen,
who pitched for Lincoln last year and
played in the house league at Multno
mah club last season, is also out again
this year. Harry Fischer was on deck
for the first call and speared some
Texas leaguers.
w
HEN everything is in readiness
for making the stroke the player
should take a last look in the direc
tion of the hole to satisfy himself
about what it is exactly he wants to
do and to make a final mental note of
the dangers that are in front of this
tee shot When About to make the
stroke the eyes should have ceased to
regard that point in the distance to
which it is Intended to dispatch the
ball and should have settled down to
looking at the ball itself. This brings
one naturally to a repetition of the
most justly celebrated maxim in golf
"keep your eye on the ball." There is
no other rule half so valuable and nec
essary, because if you do not keep your
eye on it from the moment the swing
is commenced until it haa been sent
from the tee no good can come of the
stroke. Even players of long experi
ence sometimes, as the result of over
confidence, get Into the way now and
again of temporarily allowing their
eyes to wander and the result is that
their strokes go wrong.

SAIiT LAKE MANAGER IN" "EED
OF NEW MATERIAL.
Outrirld In Need of Strengthening
and Manager of Bees Is
Worried by Delays.
BY JAMES J. RICHARDSON.
PITTSBURG. Cal.. March 23. (Spe
cial.) Two hundred and thirty-five
pounds of good-natured, red - headed
beefage is Eddie Herr, manager of the
Salt Lake club and former major
league procurer of "bush" ballplayers,
who is here trying to mold a ball
team of ability to mark his entry into
the Pacific Coast league, and Herr
cither is going to do it or ruin his
reputation in the attempt.
Herr has been chasing over the
country gazing upon ivory-domed and
other varieties of minor league and
"bush" ballplayers so long that he has
. become hardened to the game so that
when he told me that he never predict
ed the winning of pennants or made
pre - season speeches regarding the
ability of his warriors. I took it for
what it was worth and started lamping
the 18 players Herr has in camp.
To begin with, Herr is troubled with
a bunch of holdouts. Most of the Salt
Lakers who refuse to affix their John
Hancocks to contracts are players
whom Herr needs, and needs badly, if
he wants to make any kind of a show
ing in the Pacific Coast league race,
which promises to be the best this class
AA circuit has put on for many sea
sons. Buddy Ryan, who hits .300 year after
year, is one of the holdouts. Herr
does not know exactly whether Ryan
is a holdout or whether he means to
retire from baseball, but we who have
watched the red-faced infielder year
after year know that Buddy wants
more coin to cavort in the outer gar
den, hence the fact that he Is secluded
at a farm on the outskirts of Denver
while the Salt Lake team is doing its
best to get into shape for the coming
season. Ryan has a bum pair of props,
but still travels at a pretty fair gait
chasing balls in the outfield and drops
a chance about as often as Jack Fahle
buys you a cigar. Herr needs Ryan
and needs him badly.
The other Salt Lake players who are
sitting on the holdout fence are Billy
Orr. shortstop; "Lefty" Leverenz.
southpaw pitcher; Carl Crandall, third
sacker, and. while "Butch" Byler,
catcher, Is among those here in camp
doing his best to get into shape, it is
being whispered that he, too, has re
fused to sign a contract until Salt Lake
raises the ante.
Herr is for his players. He is will
ing to go to the bat for any of them
if he thinks they are of the right sort
and appreciate a favor. Herr talked
the Salt Lake directors into giving
Earl Sheely, efficient first baseman, a
50-a-month increase over last year's
salary.
Herr has only six twirlers in camp,
but momentarily expects a few former
major leaguers to hop off the rattler
and help start the games going in
regular style. Joe Willett and "Dude"
Molyneaux, former Boston pitcher, are
the two experienced slabsters Herr has
on the Job at this writing. Alley, a
slim-looking lad, is trying for a place
as a regular, and so is Conkwright,
who was with the Bees last year. Cal
dera and "Ocean" Schorr are the two
southpaws working out. Conkwright
looks good and if he gets control will
make Herr a good pitcher.
Markle is coming here from the
majors and Bob Steele, former Pitts
burg and New York National left
hander, is also on the way. If Lever
ens decides to come into the fold Herr
will have a fairly good bunch of
pitchers.
"Tub" Spencer is In good form and
will make the Bees one of the best
catchers in the league. Byler, former
University of Washington backstop, is
showing up well and will land the second-string
job. A lad named Hinkle is
trying for a back-stopping job but is
too green.
. Earl Sheely at first base is the best
in the Pacific Coast league. Sheely
and Spencer look like the two best
bets on the Salt Lake club. Krug at
second looks to have the edge on Gts
lason. Krug looks awkward, but is a
smart ballplayer and hits hard.
With Orr a holdout. Ernie Johnson is
holding down the shortstop job. Ray
French steps around lively and looks
like a million dollars, but may have to
take a back seat. French was recom
mended by Fielder A. Jones and played
with Cornfoot last year.
Heinie Sands, in the absence of Carl
Crandall, is playing third base and hit
ting the ball on the nose. He plays a
nice third sack and Walter McCredie
sure boosted Heinie's stock to Herr.
Sands will make the utility job if Cran
dall reports and manages to crowd him
off third base.
Herr is worried about his outfield.
At present he has Rumler in right and
Mulvey in center. Starasinich, a busher
from Oakland, is playing left. Mulvey

and Rumler came here from the St.
Louis club. Mulvey hits left-handed
and cracks the ball hard and on a line.
Rumler is a right-hand hitter. Neither
of them looked good chastng balls in
the outfield, but they probably are not
yet in shape.
Herr will have to get some more
talent before his club will figure in
the race and he'll do it or break the
Salt Lake treasury in the attempt.
While here I met Bill Bloomfield,
who pitched for Portland in the old
Northwestern league. He has a ranch
at Antioch and also is interested in the
barge business on the San Joaquin
river. He piloted me around in a
Haynes ' roadster and said he might
make a trip north this season.
A number of Pittsburg residents In
quired about Walter Hippler, now in
Portland, and who was associated with
the Columbia Steel company here. Pat
Casey in particular was the most per
sistent one asking about Hippler.
Salt Lake has an excellent ball park
to train in and the players reside at
the Los Medanos hotel, one of the best
hostelries we ever have been In.
Bill Steen, who twirled for the Port
land Beavers when Vean Gregg and
Gene Krapp were on the job in the
pennant winning days, is manager of
the Pittsburg team and works in the
big steel yards. Steen's salary Is said
to be J4000 a year. He rides around in
a Hupmobile and says no more pro
fessional ball for him not while he
draws 4000 in tho steel plant.
ATHLETES HRE OVERSEAS
GREAT PREPARATIONS BEING
MADE FOR COMING MEET.
General Pershing, In Letter to T. M.
- C. A. Secretary in France,
Outlines Plans.
PARIS, March 23. With the arrival
of a dozen athletic experts to join the
force of more than 300 Y. M. C. A. phys
ical directors who are co-operating
with 1700 athletic officers in the Amer
ican expeditionary forces, and the re
ceipt of sport supplies valued at $419,-
730, the great programme of recreation
and competition which General Per
shing has outlined for officer and
doughboy alike is assuming definite
form. Preparations for the construc
tion of the great Tershing stadium at
Joinville are keeping pace with the
development of the rest of the pro
gramme. F. L. Kleeberger or tne-universiiy oi
California and Lieutenant L. C. Schroe
der, formerly athletic officer at Mitchel
field. Long Island, U. S. A, headed the
party of recent arrivals. Both are to
be assigned to the French army and
doubtless will take an active part In
the development of men to take part
in the inter-allied military Olympic
games late in the spring. The others
are to go into the American expedi
tionary forces as requested by General
Pershing In the following letter to E. C
Carter, chief secretary of the Y. M. C. A
ln France:
"I am now most anxious to encour
age in every way possible the athletic
side of our training, both as a means
of keeping the personnel wholesomely
and enjoyably occupied during the pe
riods not needed for other military du
ties and as a means of keeping them in
the state of physical and mental fitness
which is so necessary to the morale
which breeds contentment.
"Your organization has already ren
dered to our expeditionary force great
and most useful assistance in athletic
activities, and I assure you that I thor
oughly appreciate all that has been
done and the spirit back of the self
sacrificing services of yourself and of
the members of your staff of athletic
directors. Because of this and because
of my confidence in the desire of all of
you to help in every way, I am writing
to ask you to continue your assistance
at this time, when expert athletic direc
tion is so vitally necessary, by arrang
ing to keep at least one of your best
fitted and most competent men with
each of the divisions in the American
expeditionary force, to co-operate with
the divisional athletic director."
The Y. M. C. A. war work -council
will provide not only the expert or
ganizers and directors necessary for
the success of the programme, but has
undertaken to supply all the athletic
equipment required. Since the armis
tice was signed the "T" has sent from
America supplies valued at $837,000.
From July, 1917. to December 1. 1918,
for purposes of comparison, the total in
the department has been $831,000. The
combined total of $1,668,585 is Increased
to more than $2,000,000 by the addi
tion of supplies purchased In England
and bats and baseball gloves made by
the French from American models.

his feet tangled, the clout going on
the books as a two-base hit. That was
the extent of the visitors' offensive.
But getting back to the Beavers:
They looked pretty nifty out there to
day. They went through nine innings
without making a boble and were
"heads up" and full of jazz every sec
ond. The Beavers had their batting eye
with them and proceeded to take a fall
out of Benham in the third inning.
They gathered 14 bingles off his de
livery. They started in the third inning
when Baker doubled and Lukanovic
singled; that was as far as the Beavers
went that inning, the next three batters
going out via the infield route.
Portland scored its first run In the
fourth inning when, with two down.
Cox tripled to center and scored when
Mitchell booted Ritters grounder. The
Beavers hit Benham hard and often.
In the fifth period, with one gone,
Bogart tripled to center and scored on
Fuller's double to left. Blue singled
to center and Fullar was out at home
on a relayed throw, Blue taking sec
ond on the throw in. Farmer singled,
scoring Blue. Walker crashed down
the third-base line for a single, scoring
Farmer. Cox flew to Beeson for the
third out. Dell Baker was cutting up
behind the box all during the game.
He picked Hal Maggart off first' base
in the sixth inning and turned back
two other runners at second base. He
grabbed three hits out of four trips
to bat.
Blue retired in the sixth Inning after
Maggart accidentally spiked one of his
toes while trying to get back to first.
Dick Mitchell played the bag after that
with a right-hand glove and got away
good.
Cliff Blankenship was much Im
pressed with the Beavers players. He
thought Blue was the best first-sacker
he has seen for some time. Walker,
Ritter, Bogart and Fuller also attracted
Blankenship's attention. Although Ful
ler is not keen about playing shortstop,
he handled five chances around short
patch without a bobble and looked good.
If Siglin comes to terms Fuller would
like to play second base and let Siglin
cavort at shortstop.
