Fred Libke Touched for Total
of Seven Hits.

Manager Wayne F. Lewis' Guy M.
Ktandifer shipbuilding baseball team
put the skids under Fred Libke of the
Astoria Marine Iron Works team yes
terday afternoon at Twenty-fourth and
Vaughn streets, beating: him 6 to 1. The
lower Columbia river southpaw who
may soon join the Portland Pacific
coast league club was found for seven
hits.
Lefty Thede Goddard, one of the
smartest semi-professional flingers in
these diggin's. held Norman Youmans' j
saimonpackers to inree nui. im mi
ting of Outfielder Jack Clynes of the
winners featured the battle which was
attended' by a scattering of rabid semi
professional fans who rooted for the
home club throughout.
Clynes connected for three hits out
of four trips to the rubber. Walsh, for
the visitors, and Bob Marshall, for
Etandifer, both caught good games.
Libke is a husky Individual who
pitched some games for the Cornfoots
last season. He did not have as good a
club back of him yesterday as did God
dard, which accounted to some extent
for the loss. Libke showed a good
fast ball and an assortment of curves
which bothered the best Standifer hit
ters at times.
Jocko Krause, Btar pitcher of the
Vancouver beys, did not pitch the game
it being said that he demanded a little
jnore pay than usual before he would
fling. Manager Lewis game him the
glassy stare, working Goddard instead
and Jocko may not get as many favors
in the future as he has in the past.
Each team made two errors but de
spite this fact it was a well-played
fame. Ray Bateman officiated.

The Columbia Park nine defeated the
Kolan Allstars yesterday afternoon on
the Columbia park field, 11 to 0. The
feature of the game was the pitching
of Koontz for Columbia Park, who held
the Allstars to one hit. Meyers, the
Columbia backstop, connected with the
ball in the eighth inning for a home
run. The Columbia Park team has lost
hut two games this season, having lost
to the Central Door team and the Hi

pame yesterday with Hillsboro at Cap

turned out to be a pitching duel be
tween Solyan for Capitol Hill and Gray
for Hillsboro. Solyan struck out 14
men, allowing six hits and keeping
them pretty well scattered.
Pitcher Gray of the losers also hurled
great ball, whiffing 12 and allowing
but two hits, but these combined with
the errors of his teammates lost for
him.

JCx-Coast Leaguer Breaks Record
With Wichita Club.
WICHITA. Kan., July 27. Joe Wilhoit,
center fielder of the Wichita Western
league club, today broke the world's
record by securing hits in 46 consecu
tive games. The previous record was
held by Jack Ness of Oakland in the
Pacific Coast league, who hit in 45
consecutive games in 1915. Wichita
fans presented Wilhoit with a purse of
more than 600 in appreciation of the
feat.

Giants last year, came to Wichita from
Seattle in the Pacific Coast league in
' May. He started his hitting record

FIGURATIVELY a golfer's club r-.ust
be grafted into his body. The de
velopment of his consistent accuracy is
dependent upon :the weldln - of two
things, a club and a strong arm into
one an arm lengthened and hardened
and shaped by a club. Just as the boy
and blind man come to feel the ground
through stilts and cane, the golfer
comes to feel the ball on the end of
the club almost as keenly ts he might
with his finger tips. Chen he has the
"feel of the ball."
Getting thia "feel of the ball" is for
the golfer a matter of the closest con
centration of attention. Herein lies the
difficulty. The -ttention of the blind
man is necessarily focused upon the
ground. His very life demands it;
hence he does not consciously concen
trate upon it. No such lemand presses
upon the golfer. He can with safety,
ar.d does, divide his concern at the
moment when the club strikes the ball,
between his club, his ball and the hoe,
and to this division of attention is due
many a dub shot. Position, swing and
grip and a dozen other things are
essential. No our would deny that, but
attention must be given before the
swing is taken. At the moment of
shooting attention must be fixed upon
picking up the' ball and sending it to a
definite spot. With this purpose in view
th- ball becomes for the player an ob
ject to be scooped up: not a target to
bo batted a:, and at the moment of im
pact it is "felt," swept up as with the
hand and tossed toward the hole.
Upon the purpose of scooping up the
ball the golfer's attention must be
fixed. He, like a baseball player, must
forget the contortions of his body and
think only of projecting the ball a cer
tain distance and having it land at a
certain spot.

PITCHERS CREDITED
WITH
Sutherland, Schroeder, Old
ham Cause of Come-Back.
PORTLAND IN SIXTH PLACE
McCredie to Open Series AVUh Los
Angeles Tomorrow With Re
newed Confidence.
Remarkable performances by the two
youngest Portland pitchers Harvey
"Suds'" Sutherland and Lefty Schroeder.
both natives of this city, coupled with
the stellar twirling of Lieutenant John
C. (Red Oldham were the main causes
for the come-back -or tne Beavers at
San Francisco in the series which closed
yesterday.-.
- Portland took its second series from
the Seals, for the .season, and consid
ering the fact that the home boys lost
seven straight games to Salt Lake the
previous week the ' result must have
been mighty satisfying to Manager
Walter 11. McCredie. Boss Walter will
open-the-Los Angeles series tomorrow
with renewed hope.
By virtua of the Mackmen's even
break at the Seal Rocks city yesterday
and Oakland's defeat at Salt Lake,
the Beavers hopped into sixth place
which they hold by the narrow margin
of .003 point. Salt Lake continued her
drive toward the top of the ladder, tak
ing four games out of seven from
Dashing Delmar Howard's ossified
Acorns, and as the Beavers took the
series from the Seals it aided greatly
in the Bees passing Charley Graham's
club during the week and jumping into
third place without many points being
between them and the Angels.
Sacramento pulled Los Angeles out
of the league leadership, taking four
out of six games, whilo Vernon was
walloping Bill Clymer's Seattle athletes
seven straight. In addition to Wad
Killefer's baseball losses he suffered
a still greater loss when Sam Crawford
injured himself. Although no Port
land fan wishes Sam any hard luck,
no one here would be sore if Sam did
not get back into the game until the
Beavers get through with the Angels.
Portland will get a crack at Jim
Morley s famous chicken wire fence a
Washington park. Los Angeles, com
mencing tomorrow afternoon. The
fence was constructed by the Angel
official to create more home runs and
thereby add interest to the game. One
southern fan vociferated the following
anent the fence:
"That old chicken coop could be used
for catching Seals, housing Ducks; a
corral for the Senators; a cage for the
Tigers; a hammock for the Oaks;
bird cage for the Suds fas Seattle is
known in Los Angeles); a strainer for
the Bees, and a porous-meshed union
suit for Jim Morley.
Candidates for the president's job of
the Pacific Coast league have come
thick and fast. A meeting soon will be
held, at which time action along this
line will be taken. The consensus of
opinion is that some well-known man
will be named honorary president and
a paid. secretary chosen. It is the San
Francisco owners who are backing this
plan. They could not see Alan Travel
ing Baum pulling down 93600 a year.
The honorary president-paid secretary
scheme has never worked out well be
fore and it is likely that, if given a
trial, things will soon revert back to
the old regime.
Lefty Schroeder let the Seals down
with four hits at Oakland yesterday
morning, beating them 7 to 1. There
is every probability that the big Albina
kid will continue to look well. He
pitched excellent ball at Salt Lake
despite the disastrous week the
Beavers experienced. Schroeder has
two years of professional ball under
his belt and always won games. He is
a huge southpaw with a world of stuff.

Joe Welnstein, returned last night from
Astoria, where he lost a decision to
Sammy Gordon in a four-round main
event Saturday night. Franklyn put
up a great fight and the worst, he
should have received would have been
a draw, according to reports of the
fight from the lower Columbia river
city. The boys were evenly matched,
and the crowd of 330 fight fans hooted
the referee's decision when he raised
Sammy's hand. Franklyn is confident
that he can win over Gordon, and is
angling for a return bout.

Pitcher Carl Mays quit the Boston

not be recognised by Inland empire
tumDer manufacturers.
At conferences of lumber dealers held
here during the last few days a unani

LAST PAY SLIP
Wooden Shipbuilding Concern
Is Taken by Shipping Board.
BUILDING RECORD EXCELS
Output of Works Nearly Equal to
All Wooden Yards Combined.
500 Men Former Payroll.
Final and complete relinquishment
of the wooden shipbuilding plant
operated by the Grant Smith-Porter
Khip company to the United States
shipping board was effected last week.
and the massive plant at St. John,
which maintained a war production
record unequaled by any other wooden
ship concern in the country, mill be
used as a storing place and outfitting
plant by the federal eh'pplng board.
The closing down at the Grant
! Smith-Porter Ship company bring to
an ena a impounding organisation
which sprang into existence almost in
a day. and which completed and turned
over to the government for duty more
wooden ehlps than any other concern
during the war. At the time the armts-
tico was signed. IS ships had been built
ana put into service for war work.
Plaat Ball Q.lrkly.
At the outset of tha war, the Grant
Smith company offered the servtcea of
Its entire organization to the govern
ment. The official, were told tbat the
building of wooden ships was needed
more than any other ono thing. It
was then that the tidelands of the
V, lllamette at St. Johns were dredged
and the shipyard was built. The prop
erty was owned by the government
and leased by the Grant Smith-Porter
company only until it had fulfilled Its
war contract with the government.
The first ship wae launched at the
yard February 17, 1918. It was deliv
ered to the government June S. 1918.
From that date until the signing of
the armistice brought a cessation to
hostilities, the plant had completed and
delivered 15 more ships, all of which
were doing war duty on the seas when
the war terminated.
Klghteea Vessels Delivered.
According to the recorda of the
United States shipping board, the Grant
hmiih-Porter fehip company delivered
nearly as many ships to the govern
ment as all other Pacific coast wood
plants combined. All other Dlants de
llvered 18 vessels, or just two more
man this organization.
A year ago today there were 6500 men
employed, at e Grant Smith-Porter
yard, while today the last time check
has been signed and delivered. The
organization has completed Its contract
:n full.
It Is expected to be severs' years
before the last vestige of war activity
disappears from the plant. The ship
ping board, it is understood, will use
the plant for the storage of much of its
material aid for the outfitting of ves
sels which are operated under Its
supervision.

LONDON. July 27. H. H. Asqulth,

"I regard with bewilderment and ap
prehension the part this country is

tempt to commit us further io Russia
will be successfully resisted. The fu
