visitors would lead by several points.
then the Silverton team would gain the
upper hand. By a sudden spurt a few
minutes before time was called the Sil
verton team managed to edge out a
victory, due mostly to the star playing
of Vern Wolcot. Hughes, of the Ami

ISO or more members of the Multnomah
Club who intend to make the trip to
Gearhart on December 7 and 8, expect
to have a real warm time In the ocean

by Chairman Frank E. Watklns, of the
Multnomah swimming committee.
Shortly after the arrival of the
guests on the evening of December 7,

Gearhart. Following this there will be
dancing all evening and at midnight
all will turn out for a splash In the

ASTORIA REGATTA, SHOWING THREE BOATS WHICH
WILL LIKELY MEET JANUARY 1.

. LEFT TO BIGHT, OREGON WOLF-, VAMOOSE AND SWASTIKA.
The race of which the start is shown was one of the three heats
of SO miles each, which the three boats ran for the title. Owing to
a mistake on the part of the assistants to the starter, the Swastika
did not have time to prepare for the event and had to quit. - The Va
moose lost out to the Wolf because of engine trouble. At times it
showed that It had the speed to make the champion hump. The Va
moose received the credit for the fastest lap of the meet, but John E.
Wolff Insists his boat was never let out and says he will eubstai
tlate the assertion if the two boats race again. The Swastika believes
that it can beat the Coast champion because of the improvement In
the behavior of the engine.' ..-.-.
with the addition of the flaming
clothes, will be a rare spectacle.
The following morning, there will be
athletic events on the beach and 1m
promptu swimming races in the Nata
torlum. Later in the day Arthur Cavlll
will do some swimming In the surf and
"stunts" like the fake rescue, which
had the whole town on the beach last
time, will follow.
There will be a special train leaving
Portland at 2 P. M. Saturday, December
7, but those who cannot leave until
night can get the same advantages as
those who get away earlier.
In order that the confusion which
usually reigns at the hotel over the
selection of the rooms may be avoided
a chart has been sent to the Multno

reservations can do bo at the club.

ANGELS LOOK GOOD
Hen Berry Strengthens Team
for Next Season.
(CY" SEYMOUR SECURED
Hap" Working to Bolster Up Pitch-
. Ing Staff, Which Fell Down at
End of Season Outfield Is -Not
to Be Disturbed.
LOS ANQELES. Nov. JO. (Special.)
Reorganising a baseball club is not
such a difficult proposition for Hen
Berry as some people mlgh'. imagine.
It is a labor of love for him because
baseball is his only hobby since he
found out he could not play three-
cushion billiards. Hen has already
come to be known as the greatest
scout In America and if his oil wells
should play out and his huge bank roll
grow wings, he could get a Job as
scout for any major league ball club
that he might want to be connected
with. Last year be tried his hand at
it for the first time and built up a team
that developed from tail-enders Into
champions in oner season. It looks
like he has made even greater efforts
for the 1913 team and that it will be
the best team that ever wore a Coast
League uniform, unless some of his
rivals do a lot of tinkering with their
lineups before opening day. -
"tfr" Seymour Is Strong Card.
The addition of Cy Seymour to the
Angels' lineup probably will be the
most notable triumph of Berry, consid
ering the individuals he has secured
for next season. Seymour, accordfng
to Johnny Kane, will have to slump
like fury to fail to lead the Coast
League batters in 1913. In addition
to his hitting he is a high-class out
fielder and his arm is good and strong
yet. Wottell is also an outfielder and
is said to be one of the fastest men
developed In the New Tork State
League In years. Another outfielder
with a big league team is being dick
ered for and will probably be secured.
Berry says that Crabb and Jackson
the new pitchers, have had major
league experience, although brief, as
each Is a youngster, and Crabb espe
cialy Is looked upon as a high-class
heaver. Jackson was with the St. Joe
club in the Western League last sea
son. Two more pitchers, both with
major league clubs now, will be se
cured by Berry If waivers can be se
cured for them. He will know defi
nitely within a few days.
Berry Glvea Out Lineup.
It is the intention of Berry to place
the men next season as follows, pro
viding plans work out now and the men
show up.-as they are expected to do:
Moore and Dillon, first base; Page, sec
ond; Metsger, third; Berger or Fahey,
shortstop; Seymour, right field; Mag
gert. center; Ivan Howard, left. Should
he be able to keep Berger, nobody will
be able to root him out of the shoi't
field and Fahey and Metzger will fight
it out for third base, the loser doing
utility duty. Boles, Brooks and Smith
will do the backstopping. Chech, Sla
gle, Tozer, Perrltt, Vernon, Crabb.
Jackson and two others will make up
the pitching stall. .
Hap Hogan will not know the
changes in the Tigers' llnnp until he
has disposed of the deals now pending
and the options on the new players.
That he will have a much stronger
pitching staff than last season, when
his pitchers fell down in the final
weeks, is already assured. Edmondson,
Hltt, Baum and Stewart are sure to be
retained and Johnny Raleigh may also
Nlae Tnrlrlers la Sight.
With this nucleus upon which . to
build a winning pitching staff Hogan
expects to add two more twirlers, both
of whom have had major league expe
rience, and possibly a youngster, In
addition to Pfeffer and GrifTin. This
will give him a twirling staff of nine
at the beginning of the season.
Brashear, the mighty ash wlelder.
cannot be replaced, so .will have no
competition for his Job. Hosp and
Lltschl also are able to sleep easily at
nights in the knowledge that their
worn or last season was sufficiently
classy to merit retention. Carlisle.
Kane and Bayless make up a great out
field trio that Hogan will not disturb.
Patterson looks like a certainty at first
base, too, if his broken leg ever gets
thoroughly healed and strong. It Is not
expected that there will be any releas
ing of players before Spring. ,

The severe drubbing the Philadelphia
Athletics administered to the Cubans
on their trip to the island caused the
Cubans to call off the proposed trip of
National League players headed by
Umpire Rlgler. Mendez, thfc Cuban

the hard-hearted Athletics, and the Cu

Most of the National League critics
agree that Jake Daubert played the
best first base in the circuit during tne
1912 season. Merkle is brilliant, but
not as reliable as Daubert, while Kon
etchy pressed Jake close for premier
honors. The general impression is tnat
had Merkle -been playing with either
Brooklyn or St. Louis he would nave
passed unnoticed, while either Daubert
or Konetchy would have starred at
A Chicago pitcher named Carlo is

the Badgers "punted, trying out the op
ponent's style. Then came the hammer
ing away at the guards and tackles, to
force the backfield in. This opened the
way for the successful execution of
forward passes. This style of assault,
as maneuvered by a perfectly drilled
team, gave the Badgers the title.

The Oregon Wolf, champion speed
boat of the Pacific Coast, and the
Swastika, 20-foot titleholder, will meet
on the Willamette or Columbia rivers
in a 20 to 30-mlle contest for a (500
purse January 1. An added and pecu
liar feature of the competition will be
the presence of the Vamoose, which
ranks second to the Oregon Wolf In
point of victories, racing against the
Portland-owned craft as an outsider,
paying no entrance fee towards tha
purse race, -and not participating in the
Johnny Wolff, designer and pilot of
the Oregon Wolf, declared last night
that he is satisfied to race the Swastika
over a flve-mlle course, or on any other
conditions satisfactory to R. F. Cox,
owner of the Swastika. The $250 placed
with the stakeholder by Cox will be
covered Monday and Tuesday night
the Portland Motorboat Club will take
official recognition of the race and as
sume the management of It.
Arrangements to Be Friendly.
"Should the Vamoose nter the race I
would demand a course between Port
land the mouth of the Willamette." de
clared Wolff last night- "On a flve
mlle course there is little to choose be
tween the two craft, but with the
Vamoose eliminated from the race for
the purse I am willing to accept Cox's
request for a five-mile course. We
shall get together with the, club offi
cials and make arrangements for the
race within a few days. There is no
reason for a hitch in negotiations as
neither Mr. Cox nor myself are likely
to squabble over officials or minor
George S. Shepard and Elwood Wiles,
of the Oregon Speed Boat Company,
owner of the Oregon Wolf, are confident
that their boat can beat the Swastika,
although a five-mile course Is expected
to materially aid tne chances or tne
Swastika, which is much smaller than
the Oregon Wolf and hence easier to
handle in turning the corners. They
have entered whole-heartedly into the
scheme and the speed champion will be
in trim for a gruelling race long be
fore the day of the contest.
Vamoose May Join Run.'
"I don't feel like putting up ' any
money for the race,' sam uapcain
Milton Smith, owner of the Vamoose,
when queried regarding the race.
'But they won't let you in unless you
subscribe towards the . pot." explained
one of the interested parties.
'Well, they can't keep me from
racing, can. they?" was Smith's retort.
To this last remark he added tnat tne
Vamoose will be on hand for the Jan
uary 1 race, with the engine of the
Wigwam II. The vamoose engine is
now In the East for repairs, but the
Wigwam II engine, owned by C F.
Wise, of Astoria, will propel the boat
over the New Year's day course. The
engine is a six-cylinder Lelghton, which
has been In many victorious races in
the West, as well as at the Davenport,

The race win be a zeature oi tne
