BY HARRY M. GRAYSON.
Yesterday was May day. On May
day it is that the children run round
the Maypole, swathing it with colored
ribbons. At Twenty-fourth and Vaughn
streets Oakland acted similarly in the
second inning; trotting round the bases
and swathing the score board with
three tallies, ultimately winning -the
third game of the series, 4 to 2.
George Pennington, short, thick and
round, like a suet pudding, worked
for Portland, being opposed by a for
mer California semi-professional, Carl
Hollings. The St. Louis American was
whanged for eight blows, and, al
though ten are charged to young Hol
lings, the latter labored steadily in
the well-known pinches.
Frank Fuller tiptoed up, hung a
May basket on Del Howard's doorknob,
rang the bell and ran away by fooz
ling Sammy Bohne's easy chance to
start that fatal second. Bohne went to
second on Jack Roche's out. Sammy
scored on Willie Stumpf's hit between
third and short and took second on
Jack Farmer's toss to the plate.
Siglin Is at Fault.
Honus 'Mitze beat out an infield hit
when Captain Siglin allowed the ball
to play him rather than the reverse.
Stumpf moved up a base. Mitze stole
second. - Stumpf scored on Hollings'
sacrifice fly to center. Mitze registered
on Billy Lane's double to center.
Singles by Farmer, Dick Cox and
"Dixie" Walker chased the former
across for Portland's first of two runs
in the fourth. When Del Baker forced
Walker at second the other tally was
With one away in the eighth, Dennis
Wilie beat out a hit to Siglin and went
to second on Captain Murphy's out. He
scored Oakland's final run on Hack
Miller's single to center.
Cox' youth and inexperience cost
Portland an excellent chance to tie the
count in the eighth, when he ran Sig
lin off of third to be run down by
Catcher Mitze. In this inning Siglin
singled to left and after Farmer lined
to Miller, Cox beat out a hit to that
great shortstop Bohne.
When Umpire Kason, who, by the
way, has been drawing considerable
kicking from both clubs this week,
called Walker out at first on his slow
bounder to short a single roar, like the
roar of a mortar battery, went up from
Dixie and some 1200 fans present. It
appeared as if the ex-Detroit gardener
had at least tied the throw. In all
events the pair of runners moved up a
notch and there they were on third and
second with the hard-hitting Delmar
Baker with the bludgeon in his mitts.
Bush Work Is Evident.
The Sherwood lad tapped one which
Pitcher Hollings fielded almost on the
third base line. Siglin stood pat on
the difficult corner and Baker easily
beat out the hit. Looking behind, as
doth the hunted hare, Siglin gazed
upon the horrible sight of Cox dashing
into his station.
All poor Paddy could do was to start
for the plate to bo finally run down
and trampled upon by MHze. Poor
coaching at third base might have had
something to do with it, but Cox'
"bushiness" glared, to pay the least. .
Baker and Walker pulled a perfect
hit and run play in the sixth. A double
play, Siglin to Blue, pulled Pennington
out of th mire in the seventh. George
AVesterzil broke in at third base, re
lieving Eddie Bogart. He looked nice
in the field and hit a couple of long
foul flies that showed he has driving
power. Bogart hit for Fuller in the
ninth, singling to left, but died there,
for Art Koehler, batting for Penning
ton, hit into a double play.

CANADA PLANS ROAD RULES
Standard International Code Is
WINNIPEG. Man. Canadian automo
bilists have obtained co-operation of as
sociations in America and other coun
tries in the campaign to international
ze road rules. They believe peace
and good road projects will result in
many transcontinental tours and that a
standard code of rules win be needed.
British motorists who brought their
machines to Canada have had greatest
difficulty in keeping on the right hand
side of th estreet, and Canadian army
officers who attempted to pilot ma
chines in London declare that the left
side rule kept them in a fitate border
ing on mental collapse.
Aviators also are agitating for an in
ternational conference to formulate air
rules as well as highway rules.
