'Members of the Portland Pacific Coast League Team Will Not Be Arrested for Arson Tonight They Set No Burning Pace in A. D. 1912" Abe's Philosophy.
HE man who knows how to

Fitch. When we feel like punching
large man In a curious argument, or
when a mining stock oromoter has ai
moat induced us to buy neatly printed

ability to procrastinate with skill Is
a great blessing.
But, procrastination in all cases Is
not practical. The time Is ripe for

team. and. while we would much 'pre

minus starry cast and speculation
would be about as lonesome a proposl

We can't miss the bullseye much
" further than the gink who chose Harry
McArdle as one of the six greatest
players in the circuit anyway, so here
goes the oracle: ,

Ivan Howard, Los Angeles; shortstop,
Bera-er. Los Ans-eles: third base, Mel

Portland: center field. Daley, uoa An

As batterymen Mltze and Klawitter
reign supreme. Del Howard's wonder

Dillon. Rapps and Miller, all of whom
are ponderous on the paths. The re
maining three infield choices would be
almost unanimous II a poll or tne ex-
certs were to be taken. Kane and
Daley, two wonderful all-around play
ers, as attested by the vote cast in the
auto award, must be given outtieiu

HIGH SCHOOL football players, as a
general run, are too busy learn
ing the rudiments of the gridiron sport
to absorb extra portions of detail.
Some misconceptions held by the
youngsters are appalling.
Perhaps not more than two boys In
ten know when a ball kicked across
the goal line is dead and when not.
The rules say the ball shall be de
clared dead by the referee when a
kicked ball (except at klckoff or free
kick) strikes tho goal post or bar or
goes over the line before being touched
by a player of either side. Yet in that
one essential detail hardly a player In
the local lnterscholastlc league Is alive
to the situation.
Some day the fullback or halfback
who has retrieved the ball booted
across the goal line on kiclcoff is go
ing to walk slowly up to the goal and
then, with the kickers dreaming of
touchbacks, algebra and Cicero, sud
denly dash to the other end of the field
for a touchdown. The ball is not de
clared dead unless the defenders s
signify by touching It down, plainly,
to the soil.
Again, in the lnterscholastlc gamoi
which the writer . has refereed this
Fall, there has been a. tendency on the
part of both teams to stop when tli
umpire toots his horn for a foul. As
In the first case, the ball is not deml
until the referee blows his whlstie.
The foul may be declined by the of
fensive team If committed by the de
fense. In that case lethargy and Ig
norance of the rules might easily bo
the cauBe of a touchdown or two.

WAHKIACUS. Wash.. Oct. 26.
(Special.) The trout season on the

one of the most noted seasons In Klick

the Red man. For the- first time, this
season has witnessed the - "Globe

A visit of 20 modern Elks from that
many different states was a ohronicle
of the year. To Fred S. Penfleld. a Port
land business man, seems to have
fallen the lot to carry away the prize
or medal in the "fishing game" on
the Klickitat in 1912 in the record
catch of a Rainbow trout that meas
ured In length 21 Inches and weighed
eight- pounds and a fraction.
Half dozen fishermen who witnessed
Penfleld's catch In placing the mon
strous trout on the bank, unite In say
ing they never saw the equal of the
fight that was made by the fish and for
the first time were impressed that the
lucky fisherman possessed cool headed
traits of a great army general. The
story of young Arthur Llnd reads
differently. Mr. Llnd. formerly of Chi
cago, now connected with a promi
nent Portland bank, saw the Penfield
catch. After a ride of three hours and
a half by rail he was at Maddocks on
the Klickitat and at different timet
he hooked three big trout, the largest
three feet long, but In no Instance
could he get them to shore, though an
expert might have landed them.
