SEATTLE, Wash., Aug-. 6. Special.)
One lonely hit was all that Seattle
could grather off Portland, but that one
bin pie was enough to win the ball
Fame. Ray French 'was the lad who
delivered the two-base blow, and he
chose a time when the bases were full
for his little click, and the double beat
the bustling Beavers in the opening
ctrugrgle of the series. The score was
6 to l.
With their new pilot eyeing" the con
flict from the bench, the Rainiers
fielded and ran bases like a real ball
club. Charley Mullen's release from
Toledo was not received until game
time and the blonde manager will not
assume his managerial duties until to
Rl fob era IvOe Game.
McCredie's pitchers, as Portland
twirlers are wont to do, helped Ray
French win the game.- 'Deacon" Jones,
Walter's first choice for the heaving
honors, filled the paths in the second
with two hit batters and a walk and
French did the rest. The youngster's
fc'am over third base was delivered
TAhen the count was 3 and 2 and took
ail the starch out of McCredie's boys.
Marki Score Once.
McCredie had squeezed a tally over
in the first inning, but wtien the locals
pot their three in the second, Claude
Thomas, who occupied the knoll for Se
attle, saw to it that Skipper Walter got
no more markers. Despite the seven
Beaver blows, Thomas threw his usual
brilliant game, and outpitched both
Jones and Sutherland, who relieved the
young t.wirler in the third.
Seattle grabbed a couple nyre in
the fifth, just to clinch it, some daring
base running, a brace of walks and an
error accounting for the tallies. The

JOSHUA TAYLOR says:
"There are two points about
women's golf that have always stood
out to me as matters of great impor
tance. . They are the Inability to get
out of -a bunker at the first time of
asking, and a certain feeling of want
ing to run before they can walk with
regard to golf generally. Ladles never
seem to realize that when they
are unfortunate enough to get into
a bunker they must content them
selves with losing at least half a
stroke. Bather do they attempt to
make up for lost distance, with the
result that, instead of getting out in
one shot, they frequently play so many
that their interest in the competition
comes to an end tn that bunker.
"I have always found in women a
strange reluctance to hard practicing.
They seem to fancy that there is some
loss of dignity in practicing one shot
until they have attained a degree of
success. They all want to start from
the first tee and play perfect golf for
the whole '18 holes, without having to
go through the drudgery of learning.
As I have frequently pointed out to
women. It is obviously impossible to
play Chopin without having first learnt
the notes. Try to get out of each and
every bunker at the first attempt: It
doesn't matter how far out, but get
out, and when learning, do not expect
to know all that is to be known in the
first week. If the game coild be
learnt in such a short space of time,
and with 'the minimum of trouble, it
would not be worth playing., There is
ho proverb that links itself so closely
to golf as 'hasten slowly.' "
