1. was decided to present to the team
wtosihg -the greatest number of points,
a andsome silk banner, while the relay
team winning first place will be given
a silver cup. No medals will be given
to the individual winners in the events.
The board did not feel that it could meet
tliis added expense owing to the many
handicaps the teams have been laboring
under this season. The giving of medals
to'he winneis is also said to create too
mucin individual effort on the part of the
eoniifstantu . and to cause many to lose
sipiit of loyalty to their schools.
The track, work this year has been
greatly held "hack on account of the re
pairs being made on Multnomah Field.
Heretofore the school teams .of the city
have been allowed the use of the field
for practice and since it has been closed
for 'repairs several of the teams have had
no -available grounds for track work.
"Work Is being rushed on the new oval
and it is thought that it will be in con
dition for fast work by Saturday.

- High School. Is Strong.
The West Side High School track
team is showing up in fine form and
its followers are freely predicting that
Hugh Boyd's aggregation will make a
close race with Columbia University
for first place in the coming inter
scfiblastic meet. Karly in the season
in -a practice meet the West Side dem
onstrated that it . has some classy
athletes. 1-atourette is considered by
the high school students as a sure win
ner in the hurdles, as he has been
showing up In marvelous form in prac
tice. lart will be entered in the 100
and 1'00-yard dashes,, and while heWis
not considered to have more than an
even break it is almost certain that
lift will be close to the lead at the fin
ish. Meier will represent the high
school in the 4-10-yard run. while Sut
ton, Jamison, Olson and Tufts will be
the distance men.
The relay team will be picked from
thr-f ollowing five: Part, Meyer, Crick
more, Hick son and LAtourette. Kight
men. including the relay team will be
sent to the big meet at Corvallis.
Smith, Runyan and Grout 'are showing
up strong in the weights, and the high
school supporters have strong hopes
of winning a large number of points
In this department of the meet.
Hill Military Hard at Work.
Out at the Hill Military Academy
the boys are working out, but up to
the present time have not been show
ing up to particular advantage. This
is due to the fact that none of the
tars of last year's track team are in
school this year, and the team will
be made up altogether of new material.
The new members have not yet had an
opportunity - to demonstrate what they
are, capable of doing, and for this rea
Bou'they are making no claims of what
showing they will be able to make in
the-: meet. Iast year the Hill team
won first place among the scholastic
teams in the field meet at Corvallis,
In the distance runs Carson, S. Graham
and W. Graham will be entered from
llilk In the dashes and hurdles the
military boys will have Baker, Hill
and Mays, 'while Vaughn and Donason
will be entered in the weight contests,
Columbia University has one of the
strongest teams ever turned out from
tli it institution, and it is .looked on
by' critics to take first place in a ma
jority of the events. The Colombia
team is exceptionally well balanced
and is strong in the weights and
The East Side High School has a
team in the field, and other than to

Friday at 3:30 P. M.
The East Side Hiqh School team has
been greatly strengthened since the last
fcime. Houck and Cason will do the
twirling for the remainder of the season,
and both are said to be in first-class con
dition. . The infield has been- greatly
strengthened, while, the players are bat
ting much stronger than they were earlier
in the season. -That the fceara is show
ing wonderful improvement was demon

which aggregation was shut out by a
score of 3 to 0. The Behnke-Waiker team
easily defeated the I'ortland Academy,
ana on the comparative showing against
these teams the East Siders are build
ing their hopes. They expect to land
second place at least.
Columbia's Ball Team Strong.
Columbia University with a strong
fielding and hitting team is considered (
aimost sure winner or nrst place. Co
lumbia's outfield has played the season
up to the present time without an error.
Locke and W eisgerberger, the pitchers,
have clearly demonstrated that they have
it over all the other pltche.es in the
league, while Dockstader is without doubt
the best first baseman among the schol
astics. The Columbia team will meet
Eugene High School on the Vaughn-street

CHANGE BOON TO PLAYERS
THOSE WHO FAIL OFTEN" MAKE
Cy Morgan and Orvall Overdall Are
Conspicuous Examples of Wliat
Transfer Will Accomplish.
A change of scenery ' often works
wonders with a ballplayer's showing.
Quite often a ballplayer appears as if
he is all in while playing for a certain
team. The manager realizes that he is
of little worth to him and hands the
player a transfer to some other burg
and at once he looms up as a star.
Often a player gets away with a bad
start, makes a poor impression on
the fans and incurs their knocks. The
bleaeherites get after him almost as
soon as he leaves the bench.- The
player, loses heart, doesn't care what
kind of ball he plays, and the man
ager is forced to release or sell him.
The same player will go to some other
league, receive the encouragement of
the fans and make good.
The best example of this kind in the
American league is the case of Cy
Morgan. While with St. Louis he was
unable to prove a winner, although he
seemed to have everything. The fans
didn't like him and just as soon as he
would start for the pitcher's box the
fans would yell for the hook, the der
rick or any of the other twirlers.
McAleer realized that he had a good
man in Morgan and carried him for
three years hoping that the Mound City
fans would finally take a liking to him,
but it was all In vain. Morgan began
to hate the burg as much as it hated
him, and he once asked McAleer to
build a subway from the dressing room
to the bench so that no one could see
him make his appearance.
Morgan was sold to Boston and he
made good with a vengeance. He was
one of the best pitchers on the staff
and Jim McGuire looks for him to prove
a consistent winner. Morgan got sweet
revenge on the St. Louis fans by shut
ting out the Browns and allowing only
two hits in the first game he worked
there for Boston.
Jake Berkley was unable to hit .200
with the St. Louis Cardinals last year
and was sold to Kansas City. In .100
games in the fast American Associa
tion he batted over .300 and led the
Pitcher Overall was a dub at Cin
cinnati, but the big show with Chieago.
Many critics rated him as the best
pitcher In the National League last
year, and his work certainly helped the
Cubs to the honors they won.
Jiggs Donahue was a shine as a
catcher with the St. Louis Browns, but
now Is rated as one of the beet first
basemen in the American League.
Jimmy Collins didn't think enough
of George Stone to give him a chance
in fast company, yet Stone is regarded
as one of the most valuable men in the
American League and is a tower of
strength to the Browns.
Claude Rossman didn't eet League
Park on fire in Cleveland and was sent
to Detroit, where his work helped the
Tigers to win the American League
Ed Seivers has been with many
teams in the majors and minors- but
his good work for Detroit l-st year
helped along the caue of Jennings.
Jim Delehanty didn't make much of
a hit with the fans at St. Louis, but
Joe Cantillon thinks mighty well of
htm and his excellent work at the bat

jority of Events Are Pulled
Off in Rain Storm.
PULLMAN, Wash., May 16. (Special.)
Oregon defeated Washington State Col
lege in a dual track meet here today by
the close score of 2 to 60. Features of
the meet were Houston's record of 10 sec
onds in tho 100-yard dash; fast work by
Roberts, an Oregon freshman, in the 220
yard dash; a splendid broad jump by Cap
tain Kuykendall, of Oregon, and the con
sistent performances of Johnson, Cooil
and Clark, the distance runners, on the
Washington State College team. Downs,
Slevers and Dodson, Oregon's ' distance
runners, showed the effect of their gruel
ing' work in the Oregon-Whitman meet
and were not in the best of condition for
today's events. Moullen's failure to win
the pole-vault and the inability vof Zach
arias to capture the hammer-throw for
Oregon gave tne local athletes points that
they did not count on.
Oregon Forfeits Relay.
All the Oregon men showed the effects
of their long trip; although the sprinters
and hurdlers did excellent work. Oregon
seemed to have a run of bad luck in a
number of the events, but managed to
win out by an actual score of 62 to 65,
Pullman's remaining 5 points being scored
by Oregon's forfeiture of the relay race.
Oregon has a splendid team of gentle
men and sportsmen. Trainer Hayward is
recognized by local athletic authorities
as one . of the . greatest coaches in the

the Oregon Agricultural College in Eu

Los Angeles .
BY WILL G. MAC RAG.
Portland baseball fans will long have
something to cuss about, for only five
games of the 12 scheduled for the first
engagement of the team at home have
been played. The weeping period of
May has denied them their favorite past
time and unless this merry month soon
takes a notion to smile, there is grave
danger of an epidemic of melancholia
breaking out among the fans.
Yesterday it looked all right for a
game and the signs around the smoke
places read "game at 3:30," but when
they arrived at the grounds the fans got
the "low down." for the Infield was a
bog. McCredie had his groundkeeper
out with a pump and hose, sopping up
the Juice around short and second, but
it was like supping up water from an
artesian well, for the harder the lads
pumped the more water oozed out of the
Judge W. W. McCredie toured the out
field, and after he had made half of the
journey sent up signals for life pre
servers. Hen Berry thought they could
play ball and in order to prove the cor
rectness of his theory he attempted to
walk across the diamond. If it hadn't
been for the timely arrival of Captain
Dillon, George Wheeler and Walter Na
gle, who threw their paymaster a life
line. Berry would never have seen his
dear old Los Angeles town any more, for
he was slowly disappearing from sight
Just because there was no game, a hol
iday crowd of fans poured their 10-cent
pieces into the coffers of ihe streetcar
company. They kicked a little because
of the wrong steer, but when informed
that perhaps their dimes might be di
verted to the new grandstand fund, they
stilled their noise.
If the rain will keep off there will be
a matinee this afternoon.. Next week it
will be Oakland.
It is a mean thing to say, yet I can't
help saying it. for had not the rain inter
fered Portland would have been leading
the league. We would have fattened our
percentage column on angel food. The
McCredies took the only two games
played-, -and the chances of taking the
series loomed up as big as a warship.
As it is, the team is not in disgrace,
even if it is in the cellar, for a few
games will put them on top. .

Rnacadamized Highway, From
Vancouver, B. C, to Los
Angeles, Talked Of.
TENTATIVE ROUTE MAPPED
Road to Run From British Columbia
to Seattle. Over Old "TWilltary
Route to Portland, to Connect
With Camino Real.
A great macadamized highway from
Vancouver, B. C. to Los Angeles, simi
lar to the famous Applan Way of
ancient Rome, is the project of the au
tomobile enthusiast. The route as
planned would lead from Vancouver to
Seattle and then down the old military
road to Portland by way of Tacoma and
Vancouver. Prom Portland to San Fran
cisco the route would probably be up
the Willamette River to Eugene and
thence across the intervening mountain
ranges to Ashland. From Ashland would
be the most difficult part of the road, as
the 6iskiyou Mountains form a great
barrier between Ashland and the low
lands of California along the Sacra
mento . River.
After getting across the mountains . the
road would be almost level to San Fran
cisco, as it would lead along the Sacra
mento Valley right up to San Francisco
Bay. At San Francisco the road would
connect with the El Camino Real (The
King's Highway). This great boulevard,
which has been the dream of Callfor
nians for many years; seems about to be
realized, as work on the road has al
ready been commenced. ' ' When com
pleted the. El Camino Real will be per
haps the most beautiful and substantial
boulevard in. the world.- The entire route
will be shaded by trees and flowers and
will be patterned after the designs of
California parks and driveways.
If a road from Vancouver to connect
with this boulevard is built it . would
make one of the longest and best racing
courses in the world. It is pointed out
that thousands of dollars are spent by
American tourists every year in Europe
because of the fine system of roads ex
isting, in foreign countries!, and it is ar
gued that even If the proposed road
should cost millions of dollars, the ex
penditure would be fully Justified by the
thousands of tourists who would flock
to the Pacific Coast every year.
In Southern California at the present
time a fine system of oiled boulevards
is kept up and this alone is the means
of bringing thousands of tourists from
Eastern States every year. In this sec-,
tion of the country the roads are not
only constructed properly, but are taken
care of after being built.
If the present era of development and
prosperity continues there is reason to
hope that before this generation has
passed away a macademized boulevard
will be constructed reaching from the
pine-covered hills of Oregon to the des
ert plains of Arizona.

of mountains, and across numerous can

narrow and rocky. Mr. Finger says that
in places it is nothing more than a trail.

the machine would be hurled hundreds of

MATCH BACE AT 1RVIXGTOX
Tom Beats Typewriter by a 'ose In
Once more the old Irvington race track
resounded with the thunder of flying
hoofs and once more there were cheers
for the winning horse and jockey as they
flashed past the finish. This all hap
pened yesterday afternoon, when Mr.
McCormick's chestnut horse Tom beat
Andrew Douglass' Typewriter by a nose
in a quarter-mile dash.
Mr. McCormick hails from Sandy, Or.,
and Mr. Douglass from Eagle Creek.
Several times last Summer the two
horses met, and the result was consider
able good-natured rivalry between th3
owners. For some time past both horses
have been in training on what is left of
the Irvington track and a match race
was agreed upon. About $1000 changed
hands, when Johnny McCormick landed
his dad's horse a nose winner right under
the judge's wire.
The news of the race drew fully 200
people to the track. There was a long
delay getting the sprinters started, but
the starter finally sent them off to
gether. Around the turn and all up the
stretch the two horses ran head and
head. The heavy going told on Type
writer and he stopped when the pinch
came. In spite of the sticky going, the
quarter was run in 26 seconds flat.
