Groom Ahead of All Other Pitchers
in Number of Strike-out, but
lias Also Issued the
BY W. J. PETRAIN.
The cancellation of several sched
uled baseball games has doubtless had
considerable to do with the falling off In
batting averages of members of the Port
land team, for they have been prevented
from becoming familiar with the home
grounds. In two of the games with San
Francisco, too, the field was so crowded
with spectators that the players were
greatly handicapped. In a game played
under such circumstances luck is a prom
inent factor and Portland was minus the
horseshoes in both contests.
Despite the adverse circumstances,
however, McCredle's men continue to
lead the league in team batting, al
though only four of the Individual play
ers remain in the slugger class with
averages over .300. Slattery. the Oak
land backstop, is the league's premier
slugger in the figures compiled up to and
including Thursday's games. He is
maintaining the terrific clip which he
inaugurated on his debut with Van Hal
tren's crew, and the figures give him a
percentage of .427 in 25 games.
Two Los Angeles pitchers.. Gray and
Koestner. follow Slattery, while the next
high man is Catcher Tom Madden, of the
Portland team, who is hitting at a .369
clip. In addition to Madden, three other
Portlanders. McCredie, Bassey and Dan
zig, are batting .300 or better, but of
the trio, Bassey is the only man who has
increased his percentage since the team
has arrived at home. Raftery and Ryart
have each fallen off slightly, but & few
good days against the Oakland pitchers
next week should bring them back to the
coveted .300 mark.
Cook Makes (C3 Runs.
The leading run-getter of the league is
Cook of the Oakland team, who, in spite
of the fact that his batting average is
but .200. has scored 23 runs, two more
than his nearest rival. Larry Piper of
the San Francisco club. The latter's
average is but .243. Tom Raftery and
"Count" Bassey are the leading bell
tollers for the McCredie bunch, each hav
ing registered 18 taps on the . official
scorers' gong. Casey has scored 17 runs,
and Danzig, the young giant. Is right
behind him with 16 aces. Phil Cooney.
the speedy little shortstop of the Portland
team, who came home with a batting
average, of .125, has increased his per
centage to .lt7, and at his present clip
will soon reach the .200 mark.
Melcholr, the San Francisco slugger,
continues to keep his average well up
among the leaders, and is the only San
Francisco player, aside from "Chief"
Ksola. who has been in but few games,
batting above the .300 mark. In fact,
nearly all the Seal regulars are very low
In the batting column, but - make up for
this defect by their speedy work on the
paths. While the San Francisco club has
the smallest team batting average they
now lead in stolen bases, having 66 to
their credit. Roily Zeider, their crack
shortstop, has 20 steals to his credit, or
practically one-third of the total se
cured by his teammates. Portland Is
now second In the base-stealing depart
ment. McCredle's players having pur
loined 63 sacks. Bassey leads the local
players with 14 steals to his credit, while
Tom Raftery. who has been incapacitated
lately by illness, is second with 11.
Truck Eagan, who, in former years,
was the terror of the league in the mat
ter of long drives, is in bad this year.
All that "Rip" has been able to do in
the slupgllng line this season has been
one double, one triple and one home run.
Vntil last year, when Carlisle took the
honors from him. Kagan usually set the
pace in the matter of circuit swats. The
old-timer may yet come to the front and'
give the opposing pitchers nervous pros
tration. At any rate, the Oakland fans
are hoping that he will do so. Heltmul
ler and Slattery, however, are making
tip for any deficiency in Engan's ability,
for both these players have been rap
ping out long hits quite regularly. Heit
muller Is running Melcholr. of San Fran
cisco, a pretty race in the matter of long
distance hitting. Like the Seal slugger,
the Oaklander has a trio of home runs
to his credit.
Vew I.os Anjreles Sluggers.
Catcher Easterly and "Rube" Ellis, of
Los Angeles, are the only regulars among
Hen Berry's squad to remain among the
plugging contingent. "Pop'' Dillon and
Jud Smith are hitting far below their
former averages, but both have been con
necting regularly of late and may soon
give the leaders a contest for the honors.
McCredle's pitching stafT has performed
remarkably well, in spite of the loss of a
majority of the games. The six twirlers
now enrolled fanned 153 of the batsmen
wbo had faced them up to last Wednes
day. Bobby Groom leads all the pitchers
of the league in the number of strike
outs, having fanned 40 players. He has
offset this tine record by passing 32 to
first on balls. His nenrest competitor in
the strikeout line Is Gray, of Los Ange
les, who is also second In issuing; passes.
Gruy has fanned 3S and has walked 30.
Phil Dellar. the big pitcher drafted by
Oakland from Tacoma, has won five
straight games, during which time he has
fanned 20 batsmen and walked but six,
and Uas not lost a game eo far this sea
son. Pinnance, the Chippewa Indian twirler
with the Portland team, has fanned 30
men and walked 16 In the seven games he
has pitched. This Includes the two tie
games in which he has participated. Billy
Hloomtield has made the poorest show
ing of any of MeCrodie's pitchers, but he
has not boon in good form. He shows
promise of being a first-class twirler. and
McCredie will do well to hold this young
ster. The pitching, batting and baserunning

Victory, Over Sullivan Puts
Him at Head of Class.
SHOULD NOW MEET. PAPKE
Gans1 Victory Over Unholz Is Sur
prise to Critics, In View of
the Letter's Battle
BY WILL a. MAC RAE.
By knocking out Jack (Twin) Sullivan,
Stanley Ketcbel has stamped himself as
a great fighter, for in stowing away the
Boston Twin, he cracked about the hard
est nut, for the weight in the fighting
game today. Ketchel Is the one fighter
In the game these days whom the light
fans feel sure they can depend on for
their money's worth when he is hooked
up for a battle. He may not be the most
scientific battler in' the business, and in
the recent tight he gave evidence that he
Is not, but one thing is sure, he has the
wallop and is willing to carry the milling
to the other fellow all the time.
In San Francisco, where Ketchel has
done most of his fighting, he has made a
host of friends and now there is some
talk that he will meet Tommy Burns.
Ketchel is a growing youngster and he
Is finding it some troublo to battle in and
around 156 pounds. In spite of this, how
ever, he Is a long way from being a
heavyweight, or even a light heavy
weight, so all the talk about his being
in line for a battle with Burns is just
about a year ahead of the time.
Before Ketchel seriously considers
taking on Burns, he should meet Billy
Papke, for fapke is the only boxer whom
he hasn't met and whipped. Papke, from
the methods he has adopted, is not burn
ing up with a desire to exchange wallops
with Ketchel. The Montana man has
been camping on his trail for months and
once or twice they came near being
matched, but on these occasions, it was
Papke who side-stepped.
Ketchel's Victory Xot Fluke.
Ketchel's decisive victory over Sullivan
was no fluke. From a man who saw the
fight and thought welL enough of Sul
livan's chances to wager a nice bet on
the Bostouian. I am told that Sullivan
put up a great battle and that he was
fighting strong until he stopped that ter
rific right with hia bread basket. A glance
at the fight by rounds bears out this
statement, although careful reading of
the rounds, shows that Sullivan was play
ing possum and depending upon his ring
generalship and cleverness to - win.
Ketchel had promised to carry the fight
to Sullivan and he did. He never - gave
the twin a chance to make good use of
his cleverness and in the clinches and in
roughing it," he found in Ketchel a better
master at that particular style of fight
ing than himself.
One of the things that makes Ketchel's
victory over Sullivan stand out is the
fact that Sullivan has a draw and a de
cision over Tommy . Burns. The bald
headed boxer from Benville, achieved
these scores over Burns by roughing it
and fighting in the clinches. Since Burns
was beaten in Los Angeles, Tommy has
not shown an over-keen desire to erase
the blotch on his career and title. Sul
livan was always willing to give the
Canadian another chance, but just about
this time Burns was getting ambitious for
heavyweight honors and passed him up.
Burns beat Marvin Hart, the gift heavy
weight, for the title and Hart never saw
the day that he could have whipped Sul
livan, so It looks as though Burns would
have to whip more, than Jack Johnson
to be able to read his title clear.
Gans Plans More Battles.
The complete and fine finishing touches
that Joe Gans gave to the Bo.-r Lniiolz
was no surprise to the close admirers of
the Baltimore oriole. The sie--'t) potion
trans administered in the 11th round,
however, must make a lot of silly sport
ing scribes feel foolish. Down around
Los Angeles, just because Unholz beat
Memsic almost to death and gave Bat
tling kelson a good slugging, they touted
the outlander as a coming champion.
Gans has relegated him to the class
where he belongs and by doing so, he
nasn t accomplished much. Joe's ranid
fire beating of Unholz shows beyond any
doubt that Gans fight with Memsic was
a' frame-up. Gans allowed the battle to
drag along for 20 rounds and let Memsic
make a most favorable showing against
him. Then after the fight he turned his
lightweight title over to Memsic. This
made the Los Angelefi sporting critics
Jubilant and Memsic was in high favor
until Unholz came along and trimmed the
Now that Gans is back in the fighting
game again, he says he is going to keep
busy all Summer. His next battle will
be with Abe Attell. The little Jewish
fighter, when he meets Gans, will meet
a fighter that will sure take his measure,
for they havn't made them any better
than this negro. Packy McFarland is
also on Joe's calling list. McFarland will
first meet Battling Nelson and should it
happen that the Dane wins, there will be
another mill between these two sworn
Gridiron Stars Caught
Svrarthmore College Lose Four of
Its Football Stars by Action of the
Faculty. s ,
IT PUT a deep dent in the football as
piration of Swarthmore College for the
season of 1908 to lose four of Its gridiron
stars through faculty action, .but it ended
a pie-taking epidemic that had been baf
fling the commissary department of the
institution for at least six weeks, and
that had ' made powers higher up take
Little was thought of an incident of a
week ago, when Otto Wickham and Ralph
Harcourt, football players, were caught
by Superintendent Roberts in an attempt
to lift a few luscious pies from the pantry.
.rJveryone passed it up as -a good Joke,
until the student government committee
began to consider the stunt seriously.
This Swarthmore student-governing sys
tem is a real system, and the attitude
of the student committee in this present
stir shows that it sanctions no raids on
the pantry. Incidentally, the withdrawal
of the football players is a point scored
by the committee, and stands unprece
dented In college history.
Some time ago when a cow was hoisted
to the second story of a dormitory of
the woman's college building, the same
student-governing committee took a long
look at the situation, but decided that it
might be forgiven. Percy Smith, of New
Haven, conn., the 200-pound regular guard
of the football team, was blamed for the
prank, and the co-eds were real cross at
Last Week Smith was" expelled for al
leged deficiency in studies and for general
"cutting up' about the campus. The
faculty also expelled a fourth football
favorite, Harry J. O'Brien, of New Haven.
Conn., cheered as the greatest drop-kick
ing quarterDacK in tne business last sea
son. He was lined up as a match for the
wonderful Crowell, a product of Swarth
more. Ko one connected Smith and
O Brlen directly with the exceeding long
kig for pie.
O'Brien is the little whirlwind that
scored a field goal against Pennsylvania
in iyoe ana Deat penn 4-0. The following
year, when Pennsylvania won, 16-8, he
counted two field goals against Penn.
In 1907 he kicked three field goals against
the Navy, winning by 18 to 0, and the
team mates liked him so well that they
elected him captain.
Grandstand Will Be Enlarged to
Seat 5000 People and Cinder
Track .Will Be Unsurpassed
in the World. .
From present indications more than 300
athletes will be entered in the big field
meet to be held on Multnomah Field June
6. Chairman Morgan, of the, games com
mittee, has been receiving letters asking
for information from schools and colleges
all over the Coast, while a number of
schools, colleges and clubs have already
assured Mr. Morgan that they will be
represented at the meet by full teams.
The low railroad rates which will be in
force at this time, owing to the Rose Fes
tival, will enable many to come who oth
erwise would not do so. Preparations for
handling 5000 people in the grandstand are
being made, while the new tracks on
Multnomah Field will be as good as any
in the world. At a meeting of the Mult
nomah Club lirectora It was decided to
make both the circular and straight
,tracks the fastest in the country, so that
tne many star atmetee wno win ue en
tered may not be handicapped by running
on a poor course.
Cinder Track Will Be Made.
After the track is graded and leveled, a
thick layer of sawdust will be placed on
it, and on top of this a heavy layer of
thick loam closely packed. Then' will
come a layer of coarse cinders and after
that a layer of fine cinders. In this man
ner the track will be not only smooth, and
firm, but will have a spring, similar to
the oiled boulevards ot Southern Califor
nia. This will enable the runners to make
greater speed and will save the hurdlers
from the Injurious effect of lighting on
the hard ground.
One of the features of the meet wilt be
the relay races by the grammar schools.
More than 30 schools will have teams en
tered in this contest,-making a total of at
least 120 contestants. The relay race will
be a mile long, and each team will be.
composed of four men, making the dis
tance covered by each runner 440 yards.
Cups will be given to the teams winning
first, Becond and third places, and the
keen rivalry for the coveted trophy is al
ready stirring up great excitement among
the grammar schools of Portland.
Prizes for Relay Teams.
There will also be relay races in the
academic and high school class, and prizes
will be awarded in this as in the gram
mar school races. Relay teams will prob
ably be entered from nearly every college
in the Northwest, while Berkeley and
Stanford may be represented.
Mr. Morgan has been busy the past week
securing officials for this meet. He will
endeavor to secure at least one official
from each preparatory school and college
having men entered in the events. A
number of replies have already been re
ceived from instructors of the various in
stitutions, signifying their willingness to
act in this capacity. Application blanks
have been sent to all' the institutions eli
gible to participate in the meet, and al
ready a large number have been filled out
and returned to Mr. Morgan. Nearly all
the high schools and colleges that took
part in the recent meet at Whitman will
send two or more men, and from present
Indications June 6 will witness the great
est gathering of athletes ever assembled
In the Paciflo Northwest.
Portland business men have been giving
Mr. Morgan their hearty support, and
several cups have been donated. A partial
list of those giving cups follows: W.
Frledlander, Friedlander & Co.; F. E3.
Watkins, cup for high jump; A. J. Coff
man, Gay Lombard, public school trustees
three cups: Dave Honey man, H. L. Pit
tock, F. Swigert. cups for best high school
pole vault; the Spectator. Judge John B.
Cleland, J. Wesley Ladd, cup for pole
vault; Hunt Club, Butterfield Bros, and
George W. McMillan. Many business men
in addition to this list have signified their
intention to give cups.
Goteh to Wrestle Zbysco.
Frank Gotch, champion -wrestler of
the world, has signed to wrestle Zbysco,
the Polish champion, in Olympic Hall.
London, on June 10. The match is to
be for a purse of J5000 and for a side

An unbroken record of cures I positive proof of the
value of my Direct Method Treatment. For 29 years
. I have specialized In treating- the diseases of men.
A great many people do not seem to understand
the difference between the regular practitioner and
the medical expert who has devoted his life study
to tbrse or .four complicated- diseases. They seem
to bs under the impression that any ohysician cures
any disease with equal success. It Is an everyday
experience to have a patient say: "I bave tried
nearly every remedy sold by drurg-ists for my trou
ble," and the; invariable verdict . is 'No benefit."
Another will say: "i have been treated by several
family physicians in my neighborhood who thought
they could cure me. but the results proved otherwise.

will yield promptly to the. correct and scientific methods that I excluslrely em- -ploy.
I offer free consultation and will accept for treatment no casa unless
are confident of my abtlitEto effect a complete cure.
