For the first time this season a. ball

streets was postponed yesterday be
cause of the interference of J. Pluvius.
A drizzle, which continued during the
.greater part of the afternoon, forced
Cmpire Bill Guthrie to hand out the
"nothing doing" sign on the opening
contest of the Salt Lake-Portland
series. Bis Bill did not put the damper
on the festivities until after the 800

even at Seattle, where Lyle Bigbee's

their sides. Prexy Lane's lads have a

yesterday's games down south, are
resting on the fourth rung of the Baum

us." commented the lieutenant. "But I
didn't see the blamed thing till we
were almost ready to crah into it."
One plane in the main squadron,
leading the rest, turned sharply ana
went down at a long slant behind the
distant trees, apparently over the river.
Those who watched it were apprehen
sively convinced that it had made a
forced landing, and were speaking of
rescue when the plane rose again and
turned in toward the field. It was
piloted by Lieutenant Fetters, who
used to visit Portland frequently, and
whose knowledge of the local typog
raphy led him a moment astray.
Wrong Course Spotted.
"I was looking for a. golf links," ex
plained Lieutenant Fetters, "and there
was the Waverley club spread out be
neath me. I circled down for a land
ing, but there were no markers nor
were there any evidence of the other
planes." We weren't more than 10 feet
off-the ground when I decided to look
elsewhere, and rose again."
The sixth Curtiss. which arrived
later in the afternoon, piloted by Lieu
tenant James S. Krull, spent the fore
noon at Lebanon in exhibition flights,
and rejoined its companion, the De
Haviland bombing plane, a half hour
after the latter had alighted at East
moreland. Lieutenant Krull was in
high good humor, challenging any and
all to dispute the claim of Lebanon as
the premier entertainment- center of
"Strawberries." he exclaimed. "O.
boy! They had gallons and gallons
of 'em, with thick cream. Look here!"
Berries Come by Air.
He stooped into the cockpit and
lifted a full crate of Lebanon straw

departure. Off came the top, and in
less time than it takes to tell the avia

passing the boxes around. ..

engine trouble, and the officers were
dubious about making the trip without
being forced to land. But they did
make it, though most of the flight was
through storm conditions.

Lieutenant Bevan, "and ran into fog,

"I kept her on an even keel, didn't
I," asked Lieutenant Beck.
"Not all the time. Beck, not all the

flew quite a while on left wing high."
The De Haviland is equipped with a
Liberty 12 motor, weighing 873 pounds,
and capable of developing 400 horse
power at 1600 revolutions. The plane
weighs 3200 pounds and attains a speed
of 124 miles an hour. Though her
wing spread is less than that of the
Curtiss type, the big bomber seems far
larger in every way. The De Haviland
will climb to a height of 20.000 feet.
"Our actual flying time, from Mather

40 minutes," said Lieutenant Beck.
