Southpaw Walter Mails, left-handed
at pitching and everything else, held
"our boys" as helpless as a pack of
Infant caterpillars in a hill of hungry
ants yesterday afternoon, and Bill
Rodgers galloped off with the first
game of the series. Score, Sacra
mento 2, Portland 0.
Although Wait McCredie, from the
third base coacher's box, rode him
luring the entire game, the much-written-about
Walter held his sweet
disposition in leash until the ninth,
when he chose to take it out on
Pitcher Kenneth Penner, it taking
Willyum Rodgers and half of the
Tipper crew to keep the billigerent
one from committing an over act
against the Marshalltown youth.
While Mails was taking his cuts in
the closing stanza Penner forced him
to hit a ball close to his cranium.
After Kingdon tossed Wailing Wal
ter out at first the big fellow started
for Penner. who rushed to meet him.
The two chuckers exchanged compli
ments, with the Beaver gang-sicking
Penner on, but before the articles of
agreement could be signed for the
tangle Rodgers. aided and abetted by
some of his hirelings and Umpire
Kason, pacified the singing pitcher
of the Senators, and peace reigned
once again.
Malls Han Good Day.
Mails had a good day. This in
brief tells the story of the matinee,
which, along with the beautiful
sunny afternon, was enjoyed by a few
hundred baseball bugs and bugettes.
Penner pitched splendidly. His labor
would have won the ordinary strug
gle of the diamond. But one of Sac
ramento's runs was earned. Penner
allowed nine hits, as against five off
Mails, who struck out four. Both
twirlers walked one man.
Captain Paddy Siglin's costly er
ror in the first round, the only boot
of the game, which was played in
the fast time of 1 hour and 25 min
utes, permitted Brick Eldred to score
the first Sacramento run. Wolter,
who made three hits out of four trips
drove Middleton over the top in the
fifth.
Portland lost its lone chance to
score in the seventh, when Boss "Wal
ter foolishly let Penner, a left
handed batter, hit against a great
southpaw pitcher with two out and
runners on second and third.
It was little Wes Kingdon who
paved the way for the possible tying
of the count, for, with Baker on first,
he doubled down the third-base line.
Penner, next up, endeavored to duck
a fast one, the ball hitting his bat
and rolling down to Pinelli. Penner
then, in his haste to get to first, al
lowed his feet to become tangled or
something, for he fell down, and al
though Pinelli foozled the ball for
about a half an hour he tossed Ken
out with yards to spare. McCredie
had Wisterzil, KoehJer and Speas,
all right-handed batters, who might
have fared better up there. He prob
ably figured that it was too much
trouble for one of the pitchers to be
warming up.
With two out in the ninth. Siglin
and Baker singled in a row, but King
don forced Baker at second, bring
ing the exhibition to a close.
Maisel's great running catch of
Pinelli's fly in the sixth was a dis
tinct feature. The score:

Play in Rose City.
Norman E. Brookes and Gerald L.
Patterson, the. two great Australian
tennis players, will not show their
ability in Portland, passing through
direct to Vancouver, B. C, where they
will board a ship for home. Walter
A. Goss, sectional delegate of the
United States Lawn Tennis associa
tion, and President A. B. McAlpin of
the Portland Lawn Tennis associa
tion, made a hard but vain attempt to
get the two world-famed racquet
wielders to appear here in a set of
exhibition matches. The Auzacs tele
graphed before leaving San Francisco
that they were overplayed and did
not feel equal to any more tennis be
fore returning home.
Portland fans missed a great treat
by not getting an opportunity to wit
ness Brookes, and Patterson in action,
as they are two of the most brilliant
players on the courts today.

RULING BENEFITS GAME
Sectional Title Teams, or Others
Duly Qualfied, Are Admitted
to National Contests.
Tennis players and followers
throughout the northwest have been
anxiously 'awaiting the announce
ment of important business trans-
acted at the annual meeting of the
Lnited States Lawn Tennis associa
tion in New York several weeks ago,
but not until last night was the word
received from headquarters by Wal
ter A. Goss, northwest delegate of
the U. S. L. A. to release the "dope."
It was agreed at the annual meeting
in New York.
The outstanding feature of the
work done at the annual meeting of
the officials of the United States
Lawn Tennis association was the new
arrangement for playing the national
doubles championships. In times past
the method of handling the entries
has been a very troublesome matter.
The scheme of the present year
whereby each section was entitled to
one entry did not fill the need, since
many of the terms found it most in
convenient to be forced to win a sec
tional doubles championship in order
to qualify for the national tourna
ment. Also many of the teams who
won the sectional doubles title were
not representative players from the
sections in which they won the cham
pionship. New Rale Explained.
The new rule which will be tried
out in 1920, and was strongly en
dorsed by Mr. Goss, who believes that
it will be made a permanent feature
of the doubles championship, is ex
plained as follows in bulletin num
ber 41. which will be sent to the ten
his clubs throughout the northwest
today: ,
The doubles championship will be open
to two classed of teams:
a Teams which have won sectional
doubles championships.
tb) Teams whose playing record con
forms to qualifications similar to those
now in force for the singles championship.
It was furthermore agreed that the team
representing a sectional championship
must be made up of bona fide players in
said section and the most Important fea
ture of the rule, or rather the most Im
portant for the Pacific northwest district,
provides that the expenses of the cham
pionship winning pair, to and from the
point of play, will be paid by the national
association. These expenses to include
Pullman and railroad fare both ways.
This means a great deal to tennis
in this section of the country and
the great outdoor game should come
to the fore with leaps and bounds
through the new ruling. It means
that the northwest will hereafter be
expected to send a team east and the
way has been made possible for doing
this. The northwest representatives
can of course, take part in the na
tional singles event as well.
Action Will Boost Came.
The action taken by the executive
committee of the National association
will tend to revolutionize tennis in
the northwest next season and in
Bulletin 41 Mr. Goss urges every club
to get busy at once and forward
their suggestions and plans for next
year, . tentative dates for city, state
and sectional championships especial
ly. Mr. Goss has suggested that one
week might be set aside for holding
the international, the Pacific north
west doubles championship and the
boys and junior championships.
The only difficulty in such an ar
rangement would be that the players
from British Columbia would not
qualify in anything but the interna
tional events and they might be un
willing to come to a meet where
there was not more play offered in
which they could qualify. Mr. Goss
is taking the question up with the
Canadian clubs.
Portland May Be Center.
It is not improbable that Portland
may be the scene of all or at least
one of these three big events, all of
which will develop in time. Last
year dates for various championship
tournaments in other sections than
Portland were not forwarded to the
northwest headquarters here until
the last minute, but it will be impera
tive that better action be taken the
coming season and even more so
AND PEOPLE ALL
owing to the new conditions brought
about.
In the bulletin to be sent out today
Mr. Goss also makes a plea that some
definite arrangement be made this
fall concerning a set policy to pursue
as regards the financing of the north
west junior champion to the national
meet in New York. In 1918 it was
decided not to send a representative,
although Bob Waubershek of Seattle,
the winner, attended, paying his own
expenses. In 1917 the money was
raised here in Portland by popular
subscription and again 'this year in
the same manner.

BIG BULL STARS CHECKED
MANY XOTED MEN RECEIVED
THEIR START OX COAST.
Renther, Rath, James, Williams,
Lynn, Gandil, Weaver, Risberg
Among Thcrii.
SAN FRANCISCO. Sept. 23. When
the world series contenders had ap
parently narrowed down to the Chica
go Americans and the Cincinnati Na
tionals, sports followers here began
to point out the probable performers
in the big show who got their start
on the Pacific coast.
Walter H. (Dutch) Reuther when
he was pitching for St. Ignatius col
lege, San Francisco, in 1913, hurled
a game against the Chicago White
Sox and it is thought probable that as
twirler for Cincinnati he will pitch
against some of the same players in
the world series this year.
Morris Rath, second baseman for
the Reds, used to play with the Salt
Lake club of the Pacific coast league.
The Portland northwest club start
ed William (Big Bill) James, Chica
go White Sox pitcher, on his way up.
Later he pitched for the Portland
club of the Pacific Coast league.
Other Chicago players who former
ly were stars of the Pacific coast
league include: Claude Williams, star
left hander: Bert Lynn and Arnold
(Chick) Gandil, once with the Sacra
mento club: George (Buck) Weaver
and Charles (Swede) Risberg, former
ly with San Francisco and Fred Mc
Mullin, who used to play with Los
Angeles.
Even the officials for the world
series may be products of the Pacific
Coast league, San Franciscans say,
noting George Hildebrand once an
umpire in the coast league.
THERE Is not much use building
a fine house on a poor foundation;
also, there is no value in a beautiful
golf swing if one's stance be not a
good one. and frequent failure to
improve is due to too little attention
being paid to this item.
There are standard stances, just as
there are standard grips, recognized
by the masters of the game. It is
simply a case of finding out which
one suits you best and, having adopt
ed it, adhere to it unless you are ab
solutely convinced another would suit
your particular case better. Much
time and chance lor improvement is
wasted by many players through con
stantly changing their stance and
grip, consequently failing to acquire
a fixed habit of hitting the ball right
It is, of course, the stance for a plain
hit ball off a flat lie that is re
ferred to.
Peculiarities of the ground have
naturally to be obviated by shifting
one's feet to suit the circumstances.
The standard driving stances are
the open and the square. In the for
mer the right foot is nearer the line
of flight than the left, in the latter
the feet are equi-distant from it.
A few extraordinary golfers place the
right behind the left, but as Mr. Hor
ace Hutchinson says of such people,
they are good golfers In spite of, not
ty reason of. their peculiarities. The
first mentioned causes a tendency to
slice with a oriver. with the last one
you are liable to pull, so the happy
medium, the square stance, is safest.

MAILS CLAIM CALLED OFF
SACRAMENTO DIRECTORS NOT
TO PRESS SEATTLE.
Deal by Which Rainiers Agreed to
Pay $1500 for Gardner Is
Settled Amicably.
SACRAMENTO. Cal.. Sept. 23. An
nouncement was made here today
that the directors of the Sacramento
baseball club of the Pacific Coast
league had voted not to press their
claims against the Seattle club for
$1500 in connection with the trade
involving Pitchers Harry Gardner
and Walter Mails.
According to Sacramento directors,
the local club traded Gardner for
Mails and Seattle agreed in addition
to pay $1500 to Sacramento. President
1 James Brew6ter of Seattle recently
refused to pay any money, stating
that misrepresentations had been
made to Seattle regarding Gardner's
physical conditio nand that Gardner
had been unable to continue playing
ball because of his ill-health.
The controversy had been placed
before President A. T. Baum of the
Pacific Coast league, but Sacramento
directors aid their action would
make a decision by him unnecessary.
Jim Brewster, president of the
Seattle club, is a good sport."
This is how Manager William K.
Rodgers. Sacramento, explains the
action of Yipper directors in voting
not to press their claim against the
Seattle club for $1500 in connection
with the trade Involving Pitchers
Harry Gardner and Walter Mails.
"Bill Clymer and Gardner, himself.
engineered the deal." said Manager
Rodgers at the Seward hotel last
night. "Mails stepped out, winning
seven straight for us, while Gardner
took about that many Iirkincs for
Seattle. Later Seattle fired Bill Cly
mer. The Sacramento directors un
doubtedly felt that Mr. Brewster and
his associates should not be held re
sponsible for Clymcr's actions.
'When Gardner left us he was in
good shape outside of the fact that
he was not exactly remaining on the
water wagon. After pitching several
weeks for Seattle it is said that he
was taken down with malaria. Any
way, he has not been used since that
time," concluded Manager Bill.

thing that they have in common is
that they train horses and drive
races. In and out of the sulky either

them. Murphy is a fashion plate. His
bright green tie and smart tweed suit
make a stranger thing that he is a
visitor helping John Benyon out when
the horses are being aired during the
morning hours, while during the races

between heats.
On the other hand. Cox whirls out
in the morning wearing a shabby pair
of trousers with a leather patch on
the seat, an old coat, flannel shirt and
hat with a hundred holes in the
crown and his name cut into the rim
with a harness punch. A half-
smoked cigar at an angle of 45 de

little soap and water and an applica
tion of the old razor, which he carries
to cut the wire hairs on his chin,

Within this makeup there Is a man
