But there la toe dangerous extreme to

Shtnn at third base, a' fftaton at short,
a Newman at first and another b usher on

games than he has, in spite of the fact
that such a course may look well nigh
Not only Is McCredie injuring his
own interests, but he Is jeopardizing
the welfare of the league. Why the
dropping off In atendance that marked
the second week of baseball between
Oakland and the Beavers? Too much
Portland. Listless ball, with games
repeatedly lost because of the almost
inexcusable errors of the Northerners
is the reason. While It may make
comparatively little difference to the
funs of this city which team wins, the
fans want good baseball. They don't
tare, for example, to see Portland or
Oakland boosted In the percentage col

McCredie says that he will make
some changes. While it is somewhat
late to repent, better late than never.
To secure first-class ballplayers who
will show teamwork 'is no sinecure,
but with the major leagues ready to
drop many of the men they have been
carrying, the expenditure of some
money ought to bring results. Cer
tainly, If McCredie expects to draw at
home he will begin to spend that
money right away. It Is not necessary
to have a pennant-winning team, but
he wants to be a contender if he ex
pects to have his club on a paying
In the outfield, he is well booked up.
McCredie himself Is playing a far beet
ter came than for years past and his
stlckwork ought to be a feature. Lovett
Is not onlv a fielder, but a fast man on
' bases and should develop into one of
Portland's best run getters. Dunleavy
has the experience and there are many
men his inferior when It comes to play
ing the outfield.
While McCredie was admittedly un
fortunate In losing the services of Pat
Newman, who promised to be a rattling
good first baseman. It Is his Infield that
mii't be changed. Staton might turn out
well inside a year, but can the team
afford to wait that long? He makes many
good plays, but there Is an air of un
certainty to his work that robs the
clever features of their brilliance.
With Carl Moore, a permanent ad
dition to the catching staff, McCredie is
well supplied in that department. Moore
Is not a showy player, but the critical
fane like his work. More than all, he
has the balance that helps to steady a
team. In fact, he has far more founda
tion that way than Pat Donahue.
Van Haltren has bullded well, and un
less all signs go wrong, Oakland will be

Smith will proTe one of the star outfield
ers of the league, although Carlisle, of
Los Angeles will give him a hard rub.
The San Francisco fans have yet to see
what Carlisle can do, but the detailed
accounts of the games in Los Angeles are
good indications. He Is a better hitter
than Smith, but If be Is faster in de
termining the right play and quicker In
going after a ball, he will be moving
some. For all his years In baseball. Van
Haltren Is as spry a center fielder as will
be found In the four clubs. Heltmuller
Is retained solely because be bits the
ball and hits It hard. If Heine fields
well, it is a surprise.
Oakland has a strong staff of pitchers
and with Tom Hackett to do a major
share of the catching, that Important
feature of baseball is well provided for.
Wright, Randolph, Cates and Reldy
ought to win a fair average of their
games. Wright has shown a tendency
td lack control In the outset of many of
his games, but as the season advances,
he will probably be in better shape. Ran
dolph, thought a boy, has a good ball
and he works well under fire.
With the San Francisco team partially
crippled. It is perhaps unfair to take the
record of the last few games as a crite
rion of what may be expected of them.
Although at that. Wheeler is playing a
steadier fielding game than Moriartty at
shortstop and the substitute third base
men have been producing remarkably
good results. Infield team work has
much to do with winning games, and
when Moriarity and Mohler get to work

they should be able to head off many

Doubtless the blescherlte has in his

Stanford Takes Victory From
Berkeley in Recent Inter- ,
FINAL SCORE 65 TO 57
Oregon University's Inability
Show Their Mettle Against
Palo Alto Great Dis
Stanford's victory over the University
of California in the recent track meet
at Berkeley was not surprising to those
FOTTR FILTERS OF THE FRAKBS TEAM OF THE
who have kept an eye on the lntercollft-1
giate athletio situation In -California dur
ing the past year. Although the meet
was close, there Is a general feeling
among Stanford men that the young ath
letes from Palo Alto have a more formid
able team than their Berkeley rivals, and
that the score of 65 to 67 hardly repre
sents the superiority of "Dad" Moulton's
The meet was one of the closest ath
letic' contests ever witnessed on the
Coast, Stanford finally wresting victory
from California by winning the relay
race. The California team led until the
last lap of this event, when Captain Wil
cox broke a ligament in his leg and was
overtaken and defeated by McFarland, the
Stanford captain. A number of Intercolleg
iate records were broken during the meet.
the most spectacular event being the pole
vault, in which Lanagan (Stanford)
cleared the bar at 12 feet 4 inches, which
is within seven-eighths of an inch of the
Some Records Lowered.'
Demamlet. of California, surprised
everybody by winning the mile run from
Miller, the Stanford veteran, and lower
ing the intercollegiate record to 4:33 3-5.
Crowles, another California surprise, de
feated McFarland In the high hurdle race
In the fast time of 0:15 2-6. lowering the
old Intercollegiate record of 0:16 3-5.
Nash. Stanford's famous two-mile run
ner, lowered the record for his favorite
event to 10:10 S-5, and Channing Hall, the
Berkeley Jumper, cleared 6 feet and one
auarter of an inch in the high jump, es
tablishing a new intercollegiate record.
Counting the relay race, the time of
which was 8:291-5, six records were
broken three by each team. There were
a number of exciting finishes in the
other events, but no especially fast time
except In the 220-yard hurdles, where Mc
Farland ran through the course In 0:25 4-5.
The time In the sprints and the 880-yard
run was not practically fast, and the
distance made In the weights and broad
Jumn were not worthy of note.
Taken as a whole, the meet will go
down into history as one of the best ever
seen on the Coast, chiefly because there
was strenuous competition In every event
and because the final outcome depended
upon the result of the last race.
Oregon Cannot Enter.
Since the results of the big meet In
California, Trainer "BUI" Hayward, of
the University of Oregon, has been la
menting more than ever the fact t'lat
Oregon will not be able to meet either
Stanford or Berkeley this year.. Ac
cording to Hayward's dope book, Ore
gon can defeat California and make
things mighty interesting for Stan
ford. Oregon enthusiasts are inclined
to agree with Hay-ward. They believe
that Oregon has two. and possibly
three, sprinjrers that can cross the taps
ahead of the Stanford men. and that
tha Eugene welghtithrowere can win
all the points In the hammer, shot and
discuB events against either Berkeley
or Stanford. The broad jump Is looked
upon as another possible Oregon vic
tory, while the hurdle races seem to
be doubtfuL Oregon concedes Stan
ford's superiority In the long runs and
pole vault. There Is no disposition
upon the part of the Oregon xen to
c-!iar,e Stanfori with cowardice for
calling off the meet scheduled for next
Friday, but there is a genuine feeling
of disappointment in athletic circles,
not only at Kugefie, but all over the
Northwest. Oregon wonld have given
Stanford a battle royal, and while the
contest might have resulted in a vie
tory for the southerners, there Is every
reason to believe that It would have
been quite as Interesting as the Berkeley-Stanford
meet of last Saturday.
Oregon has the strongest track team
In her history, and it will be several
years before Hayward can turn out
another such bunch of star perform
ers. As several of Oregon's best men
will graduate in June, the team of next
season will not be as strong as the
Seattle Feels Confident.
According to reports from Seattle,
the Washington athletes are not afraid
of Oregon's splendid team, and are
counting on an even chance with the
Oregonians on May 30 the date of the
triangular meet between Oregon,
Washington and Idaho. Washington's
men are watching closely every move
of the Eugene athletes. They have
given especial attention to the results
of the recent indoor meet &i Columbia
University, but have probably over
looked the fact that several of Ore
gon's best events-were not on the pro
gramme. There was ho hammer throw,
no discus throw or 220-yard hurdle
race. In all of which events Oregon
seems to have record-breakers.
If Oregon makes as good a showing
in these events as she did In the re
mainder of the programme at the Co
lumbia -meet, there Is little doubt about
her ability to defeat Washington and
Give Good Accounts of Themselves.
Captain Shirley Parker, of the Wash-
ington team, is one of the best distance
runners in the Northwest. He has a
good running-mate in Burke, -who Is
showing up splendidly .in the middle
distances. Holdman, the lad who re
cently broke the world's indoor record
for the polerault. Is going over 11 feet
every day, while Scholes, a new man
at Washington, is doing 5 feet 8 Inches
In the high Jump. Paul Jarvls has been
throwing the hammer around the 125
foot mark and has been doing close to
40 feet with the shot. Bants has made
a number of record-breaking throws
with the discus, and so has Metsker.
Washington has no less than seven men
who have already run the 880-yard
event In less than t:10. Boggs, the lit
tle fellow who made such a fine record
on the Washington football team last
Fall, is doing splendid work in the
sprints, and his friends believe that he
will defeat Oregon's fleet-footed
Moores. Trainer Conlbear has a large
squad of men at work, and will soon
hold a series of tryouts for the purpose
of selecting a team to take to Walla
Walla, where Washington and Whit
man will hold their annual meet on
May 17. Conibear believes that his
team bas a fighting ohance to beat Ore
gon, although be realizes the great
strength of Hayward's bunch.
Has Strong Track Team.
Washington 8tate College is coming to
the front with a strong track team. The
Pullmanltes walloped Montana in a one
sided meet on Friday and are now pre
paring to Invade Oregon. Pullman has
a number of clever runners, especially In
the long-distance events, just where Ore
gon is comparatively weak. The team is
also strong In the weight events and
hurdles. A dual meet between Pullman
and Oregon will be held in EJugene on
May 17. The Pullmanltes will also meet
Corvallls while on their tour through
Oregon and the Oregon "Aggies' will
bold their annual dual meet at Corvallis
When the blood Is pure and healthy the skin will be soft, smooth and
free from eruptions, but when the blood becomes infected with some un
healthy humor the effect is shown by rashes, eruptions, boils and pimples,
or other disfiguring and annoying skin disease. The skin is provided with
countless pores and glands which act as a drainage system to rid the body
of impurities through the perspiration that is constantly passing through
these little tubes. There are other glands that pour out on the skin an oily
substance to keep it soft and pliable. When the blood becomes filled with
humors and acids these are thrown off through the pores and glands,
burning and irritating the skin and drying up. the natural oils so that we
have not only Acne, Eczema, Salt Rheum, etc., but such dry, scaly skin
affections as Tetter, Psoriasis, and kindred troubles. The treatment of skin
troubles with salves, washes, lotions, etc is not along the right line. True,
such treatment relieves some of the itching and discomfort and aids in keep
ing the skin clear, but it does not reach the real cause of the trouble, which
are humors in the blood, and it can therefore have no real curative effect on
these skin affections. S. S. S., a gentle, acting and perfect blood purifier, is
the best and quickest treatment. It goes down into the blood and removes
the humors, fiery acids and poisons from the circulation, cools the overheat

Whitman and Oregon are contemplating

Talks to Boys on Clean Living.
R. A. Waits, international secretary of
the religious work department of the T.
M. C. A., delivered a talk on the value
of a clean life before 60 members of the
bovB department last Thursday night.
He Impressed them with the idea that the
clean life is the best life for the athlete,
and said that absolute fairness should al
ways be the rule to which there should
be no exception. He clinched his talk
by telling an incident In the athletio life
at Yale, when two football teams were on
the field with 60,000 people congregated to
see the game. The teams were evenly
matched, and at the close of the first
half neither side had scored. Then Tale's
opponents drew off and substituted a puny
specimen for one of their strong play
ers, and It was soon evident that he was
to play against Tale s captain and strong
est man. Why this move was made did
not at first appear, but it became evi
dent when, amid the heat of the game,
the little fellow hit Tale's captain a
Btlnglng blow In the face. The, big fel
low stood there for a moment, all his
muscles tense, his great frame shaking
with emotion, then turned away, disgust
ed with the little fellow for whom he
was much more than a match. Immedi
ately there went up cries of "Hoganl
Hog an I" amid the waving of handker
chiefs and hafjs, and Yale not only won
the game that day, but a glowing victory
for her captain "That is why," said Mr.
Walte, ""it has come to be almost a su
perstition at Yale that a Christian man
must always be chosen ae captain. This
kind of a choice has always been made,
except in two Instances, and in those two
caseo the Yale team lost." Mr. Walte
left Thursday for Tacoma, and will go
from thence to Keokuk, la.

Leaving the matter of economy out

the renewed popularity of the bicycle

young American women before the 190T
riding season Is over. The word "Amer

across the water have never abandoned
the wheel any more than foreign male
riders have. England alone, for in

a half million riders of both sexes.
Of course. In foregoing the pleasure

use of the wheel this time Is not to
be rated as a pure fad. but that the
present popularity li based upon a sen
sible acknowledgment of the Inherent
value of wheeling as a form of recre
atlon, that is, which offers greater re
turns in good red blood. Increased
health generally and lighter spirits,
than any other sport that the world
has ever seen.
During the past decade the bicycle
has endured some strange mutations.
From the exalted position pf ruling
favorite. It suddenly became a social
outcast, and those who continued . to
ride, either for convenience or econ

was necessary when friends were met
who were wearily trudging along on
foot. Rather a ridiculous point of
view from both sides, when you como
to think it over.
Then tmme the bicycle's Industrial
age. In which it was merely a bearer
of burdens. Messenger boys did, it is
true, continue to career about town
on them, and in a manner that indi
cated how much a wheel adds to the
sheer joy of living. But other salaried
workers confined their activities to a
