Portland at San Francisco.

Oakland at Salt Lake.
Vernon at Sacramento
BY HAKRY M. GRAYSON.
The Portland Pacific coast league
elub will commence a seven-game se
ries at San Francisco this afternoon,
and Manager Walter Henry McCredie
is confronted with the perplexing prob
lem of battling the hustling Seals with
Just one dependable pitcher Carroll
Charley Graham's club lost five out
of seven to Vinegar Bill Essick's Ver
non Arbackles at Los Angeles last
week, but it forced the southerners
to employ Herculean efforts always.
For instance. Saturday's game was a
15-inning affair. Up until last week
the Seal Rocks City boys had been
going like a house afire.
Wild Bill Clymers Seattle Rainiers
proceed from Salt Lake to Los Anreles
to tackle Johnny Powers' veterans. The
northerners dropped four out of six to
Eddie Herr"s sluggers, who are always
as tough as old hickory in their own
bailiwick. It was a big disappointment
for Clymer, who expressed the opinion
before leaving here a week ago that
he expected to break even in Utah.
Vernon, which Jumped into sixth
place by virtue of its successes against
San Francisco, will declare war on Bill
Eodnrs at Sacramento. Oakland plaw
at Salt Lake and another set of slug-E-insr
matches is due in Prexy Lane's
burg, for both the Bees and the Oaks
can whang the pellet.
Pitcher Al Zweifel of the Guy M.
Standifer Shipbuilding Corporation
team mav soon report to Portland.
Judge William Wallace McCredie,
president of the Portland baseball com
pany, wrote a long letter to Walter
McCredie yesterday in which he lauded
the work of Pitchers Zweifel and Al
Hartman, both belonging, to Wayne
Francis Lewis' outfit.
Zweifel had a short trial with the
Macktan machine in the spring of 1917
and should be ready for fast company.
He held the Cornfoot club batters hit
less and runless for seven innings at
Twenty-fourth and Vaughn streets
Sunday. Manager McCredie wanted
Southpaw Hartman this spring. The
ex-Washington State college chucker
has three years of professional ball
inder his belt anil is an exceedingly
smart ballplayer, but he hesitates at
leaving his position as draftsman at
the Standifer plant, which lasts all
year 'round, for the few months that
the baseoall season lasts.
Portland fans may see both of these
sterling young heavers work when the
. Portland cluo meets tne Mtanaiier team
t Recreation park a week from today.
It is said that the big plant across the
Columbia may declare a half holiday to
allow all the employes an opportunity
of rooting for their favorites.
Just why Bill Clymer sold Pitcher
Miles Mains to Salt Lake is hard to
understand. Wild William has some
thing up his sleeve and figured he
could use the coin of the realm to ad
vantage. Clymer probably has selected
some pitcher whom he wishes to pur
chase and who, he figures, will fill the
tall Mains' shoes and then some.
' Outfielder Herbie Hunter, who once
clayed with the Mackian machine, will
not be with the Seals for some time.

ly handicapped without his services.
a lie ii- y utaiiiiiviiv
hold Hunter a while longer. After Biff
Schaller was released. Graham, seeing
the Hunter proposition staring him in
the face, bought Outfielder Schick from
- Los Angeles.
It was thought that Walter McCredie
would work Jones at Sacramento Sun
day, but he sent Red Oldham to the
hillock instead. His reason is as ob
vious as the gloss upon a new silk hat.
Carroll will unquestionably labor like a
salley slave against the Seals this
week. He's due to twirl today and in
one of the games next Sunday.
The culmination of Outfielder Dixie
Walker's batting slump came Sunday,
when he was benched in favor of Rich
ard Cox. the well-known sea' dog. The
former Detroit gardener has fallen

Three new pitchers would cheer the
. souls of Portland fans as dew a dusty
flower. We must have them, for it is
. as manifest , as the : nose on a man s
face that the Beavers cannot hope to
: win with the brand of chucking shown
in the last three games. Judge Mc
Credie professes to know nothing as to
the future plans regarding the pitch
ing situation. Detroit has undoubtedly
quit pruning by this time and it's up
to the Macks to go out on the open
market andxreplaoe Guy Cooper, Ken
neth Penner and- to obtain one more
chucker to be, ready should George
Pennington's health not improve.
SEALS TRIM TIPPERS 8 TO 0
Poor Pitching by Cole and Errors by
Pinelli Co5t Contest.
STOCKTON, CaL, May 19. Poor
pitching by Cole and errors by Pinelli
cost Sacramento an exhibition game
today with San Francisco, the Seals
winning, 6 to 0.
The game was played for the benefit
of St. Gertrude's Catholic parish here,
and Father William F. Fleming, the
pastor, pitched the first ball to Charley
Graham, manager of the Seals, who
was Father Fleming's catcher when
they were the batteries for Santa Clara
Dan Murray of Sacramento caught a
ball dropped from an airplane, which
gave an exhibition over the ball park.

ALBANY, Or.. May 19. (Special.)
A track and field meet for the high
schools of Linn county will be an an
nual event at Albany college hereafter.
This is assured by the success of the
first event of the kind held on the
Competition was keen despite the fact
that the number of schools competing
was less than expected. Seven teams
furnished entries. Measles invaded
the teams from Shedd and Tangent and
prevented their appearance and the en
tries from Mill City and Lyons also
failed to appear. Only two high
c-noois, Ltoanon and Harrisburg. en
tered full teams. Albany had entries
in al nest all events, but the local
school had been devoting practically all
of its energies to baseball this spring
and several ot its best track men went
with the baseball team to Salem. That
most of Albany's entries were fresh
men augura well for more interest in
track and field athletics at the Albany
r.i g-n tne next lew years.

Professor ft. W. McNeaL who coached
the Albany college track team and was
carried . out under his direction. The
Albany chamber of commerce donated
a splendid silver cup to be held by
the annual winner of these meets until
permanent possession is secured by
three victories. This cup will spend
the next year at Lebanon high school
by virtue of that school's sweeping
victory yesterday, when it scored
points against 32 for Harrisburg and
10 for Albany.
Washington High school won an 8 to
5 victory over James John High school
on Multnomah field yesterday after
noon. This game was scheduled for
May 9, but as some of the players went
to the track meet at Eugene it was
postponed until yesterday.
The game was one of the weirdest
exhibitions played this year. Wash
ington, in the first inning, scored three
runs. Sorsby got a hit and after Row
ley flied to center field "Pil" Irvine
walked. Johnny Haak pulled the hero
stuff by lining out a two-bagger, scor
ing Sorsby and Irvine. Haak regis
tered a moment later on Ragenovitch'e
Washington made three more runs
in the second. Coupled with a walk
and two errors, two hits scored Sors
by, Rowley and Irvine. The same
school added a run in the fifth and one
in the sixth.
James John made two runs in the
fourth when Johnson walked and Ohm
was hit by a pitched ball. Hoskins
singled, scoring Johnson. "Long John'
Wulf came forward and put the ball
in the second tennis court, scoring Ohm.
Umpire Rankin allowed Wulf only a
two-base hit because of ground rules.

sixth and twice in the ninth. Score

Lincoln High school was scheduled
to play Columbia University yesterday
but had to postpone the game again.
Coach Fenstermacher made the first
bid for the field and this prevented the
Railsplitters from settling, their- dif
ferences with Columbia.
Washington High school will journey
to Corvallis June 6 . to play the hirh
school of that place. On the following
day they will play the O. A. C. fresh

done much in the Interscholastic league.
but hopes to "go good" on this trip.
Coach Fenstermacher will take sixteen
men with him.
. . .
The Jefferson High school game
with St. Helens Saturday was called
off owing to wet grounds at the Co
lumbia river city. fc.d Anderson was
scheduled to pitch this game for Jef
ferson and the enthusiasts in that town
were bitterly disappointed when the
ex -Chinook fisherman could not appear.
Columbia University is billed to meet
the Benson Tech team this afternoon
on Multnomah field. This should be
an easy game for Coach "Herm" Cook's
boys. Emmett Baker will twirl for
Benson and- Johnny Keating for Columbia.
Hoke was slated to meet Zimmerman;
then Sammy Gordon was put on with
Niel. and now Gordon has weakened.
Freddie Lough Is the latest to be signed
up to meet the hard-hitting youngster.
If Willis hits too hard for Lough. Zim
merman should make it very interest
ing for him.
The rest of the bouts remain intact.
Billy Mascott and Danny Edwards will
tangle in the top half of a double main
event, with Johnny Schauer of St. Paul
and Stanley Willis furnishing the other
deck. The two bouts which round out
the card are Billy Emke vs. Frank
Williams and Billy Ryan vs. George
Five boxers well known in Port
land, three of them whose home was
or is in the Rose city, will show their
wares to California flght fans this
week. Tomorrow night in Oakland
Tillie "Kid" Herman, the clever Mexi
can welterweight who recently left
Portland for the south, will test con
clusions with the rugged "Battling"
Ortega. Tommy Simpson is staging
the show and the Herman-Ortega bout
will be the featured attraction.
Thursday night in San Francisco
there will be two bouts that will es
pecially interest Portland boxing fans.
Muff Bronson will meet Lee Johnson,
while Billy Nelson will take on Allie
Nack. a recent San Francisco arrival
from New York. Bronson has been in
California for a considerable period,
having taken part in bouts in Los An
geles and met with fair success. Lee
Johnson and Billy Nelson went south
with Kid Herman several weeks ago.
Bronson and Johnson met in Portland
a few weeks back. Bronson knocking
Lee out in the first round. The other
former Portlander on Thursday night's
bill in San Francisco is 'Earl Baird,
who will meet Joe White.

REDMOND, Or, May 19. (Special.)
In the central Oregon, track and field
meet' held at Madras Saturday Redmond
captured the meet with a total of Si
points against 37 for Prinevllle, S3 for
Madras and 21 for Bend. An unusual
feature in the scoring was in allowing
tennis,- both - boys' and girls' singles
and doubles, to be counted toward win
ning the banner. Prinevllle won 20 of
its 37 points in tennis, cleaning up
everything in that line. . Madras was
the only real contender Redmond had
in the track and field events.
Tuck. Redmond's all-around athlete,
won the meet for his school, being en
tered in ten events, taking first in eight
of them and second in the discus and
high jump. He was instructed to spare
himself as much as possible, and con
tented himself with making the meet
safe for Redmond and did not try to
break any records. Only in the broad
Jump, in which he took second at Eu
gene, did he let himself loose, beating
his Eugene record by 1 foot, 11 inches,
by jumping 20 feet, 3 inches.
In the declamatory contest Sterl
Spiesz took first in the oratorical divi
sion and Irene Kendall carried off the
honors in the typing contest.
