club belong to the Kansas City team

One of their specialties is a "shadow
practice," at the close of the regular
fielding practice. They dispense with
the ball, but go through all the mo

final score being 7 to 3 in favor of

type of enthusiastic fans who have
witnessed the opening games of past
years. Following the world war the
popularity of baseball appeared to
leap forward with a fervor little an

and there is little indication that the
national game has reached the zenith
of its flight.

LEGE, Corvallls, April 12. (Special.)
With four consecutive victories to
their credit, the O. A. C. baseball
team has scheduled a clash with the
New Tork Colored Sox for Thursday.
e ebon-hucd "major leaguers" will
invade Corvallls and probably will
hand Jimmy Richardson's Beavers a
i;eat trimming, but the college can
be relied upon to put up a good exhi
bition of the national pastime.
The Beaver twirlers are not fling
ing in real fashion, but another week
of warm weather will put tho battery
men in shape to dispense some mysti
fying slants for opposing batsmen.
Bort Babb and Emmet Hughes, of
last year's college twirling staff, are
in fair condition, but Cecil Miller, the
Aggies' star portsider, has not hit his
stride. Joe Kasberger, to whom Rich
ardson Is pinning his faith, is coming
along nicely, and by the time the
team departs on its conference trip to
Seattle and Pullman, in another two
veeks, Kasberger will be ready for
mound duty. Richardson will carry
Babb, Hughes, Miller and Kasberger
for his pitching staff, with Whitney
Gill and Michael Duffy as catchers.
Spec Keene is holding down first
base in great style, and Is beginning
to lace out base hits with regularity.
'Penny" Bergeson U filling in at
second base since Tasto was put out
cf the game by injuries. From the
way Bergeson handled himself against
the Multnomah club Saturday, when
he had several chances and whanged
out two hits and scored the winning
run in the ninth, he will be hard to
Hugh McKenna is playing a bang-
up game at stortstop, and appears to
have cinched the berth. Val Noonan
has been out at third base due to an
ir.jured ankle, but Is expected to be
back in harness against the North Pa
cific college team here next Saturday.
It looks as if Summers, Bootn ana
has been recognized at O. A. C. as a
minor sport. Interest is running high,
and a waiting line is always found
around the courts.
Russell Colwell and Kenneth Joy
are two of last year's squad who aro
back In college. Joy won a base sec
tion championship in France, and Col
well held the championship of his
district while overseas. Both men
are from- Portland and members of
the Multnomah club.
Meets may bo arranged with Wash
ington and Oregon if enough material
turns out to warrant outside compe
tition. The co-eds will be represented
hy three tennis letter players, Mary
Holmes, Genevieve Betts and Edith
Gillette. MIhs Betts won the singles
championship last year against Ore
gon and will be a strong contender
again this year.
