CXSCTJPASSED FISHING FOTJXD
Two Sportsmen Bring Full Baskets
From Upper Clackamas.
According to George J. Kelly, of the
"Trout Route," and William F. Car',
of FJstacada, fishing on the Upper
Clackamas River cannot be surpassed.
They brought back with them last
Monday several baskets of trout which
ranged in length from 12 to 15 inches.
There were 74 samples in the lot and
the fish had all the appearance of hav
ing lived on rich pasturage during the
Winter. These two fishermen say that
the Upper Clackamas River fish have
a peculiar disposition and you must
win their confidence before making a
An edible looking light-colored fly
or a Juicy salmon egg will do much
toward overcoming their natural tim
idity. The fishermen must act in a
most unconcerned manner and not try
to run the fish down, or step on it or
throw bottle tops or corks in the
water. Friday is the Sabbath of the
fish and it is useless to fish on that
day, so say Kelly and Cary.

Friday and then rode horses 30 miles
along the Clackamas River trail. They
camped several days near the Oak
Grove River and fished down as far
as Roaring River. Weather conditions
were ideal for fishing - and splendid
sport was enjoyed. The Clackamas
River trout is real gamy and to land
a "big boy" requires some skill and
furnishes a good deal of sport. The
trail is reported to be in fine shape
and may be easily traveled on foot or
horseback. The Clackamas River can

within easy reach of Portland.
RUGBY TO BE DROPPED
CALIFORNIA TO PLAY AMERICAN
FOOTBALL NEXT FALL
Announcement Gaines Will Be Sched
uled With Western Colleges Murks
Break In Relations With Stanford.
SAN FRANCISCO, June 19. (Special.)
The University of California will
play a schedule of American football
with Western colleges this Fall and
may arrange contests with several
Eastern institutions. This announce
ment was made today by John Stroud,
athletic manager of the university. His
action means the abandonment by Cali
fornia of Rugby and marks the break
in athletic relations with Stanford.
"California offered Stanford every
concession possible, with the exception
of a freshman eligibility rule, against
which we have contended for 10 years,"
said Stroud, "but Stanford did not see
fit to accept, and California decided
that negotiations would be canceled.
Had Stanford come to us only four days
ago and accepted the freshman in
eligibility rule, we would have been
glad to continue to play with her. After
this break, the adoption of American
football was the only logical result."
Stroud denied an effort might be
made to induce Harvard and Yale to
Play here next Fall. He pointed out,
however, that Syracuse is to meet the
Oregon Aggies next Fall, and indicated
that a game between Syracuse and
California was possible. Washington
and Jefferson is also being considered
as a possible opponent.

RAGES MAY BE REVIVED
CURRY COUNTY PLANS MEET FOR
FAIR IN AUGUST.
Use of Old Track la Donated and 9100
Given to Fund Sprt to Be
MARSHFIELD. Or., June 19 (Spe
cial.) Curry County expects to revive
its fair and racing meet this year and
will select some date in August, it is
believed. No race meet has been held
at Wedderburn since 1908, which was
the final one given by R. D. Hume be
fore his death. R. L. Macleay, manager
of the Macleay estate, and present own
er of the vast Hume properties, has
aided the scheme by donating the use
of the old racetrack and by giving $100.
The state fair fund for Curry County
amounts to about $500, which, "added to
concession proceeds, would furnish suf
ficient funds. Heretofore, the fair fund
has been diverted to the road treasury,
but the people of the county have con
cluded they could receive more benefit
from the money by spending it for a
get-together week. They are planning
three or four days of races, sports of
varied nature, including wrestling
matches, shooting tournaments, per
haps boxing, and any other events the
committee might decide.
It is customary when races are held
at Wedderburn for those who attend to
camp, either in tents or wagons, on the
race grounds, where fine quarters are
available. Visitors arrive from long
distances before the meeting and stay
until the close, afterwards visiting
points of interest, hunting and fishing
and combing the agate beaches.
Answers to Queries.
A Reader When third base and sec
ond are occupied and the man on second
runs to third, does he force the man on
third if he runs back to second before
he is touched with the ball? Answer.
The runner on second can return to
second if not touched out. The man on
third is safe.
Inquisitive, Vader, Wash. The batter
hits a fly ball to the second baseman,
who, in turn, tries to catch it, but the
ball hits his shoulder and bounds off
and the center fielder catches it. Is the
batter out or safe? Answer. Providing
the ball did not touch the ground after
hitting the second baseman the batter
is out because of the center fielder mak
ing the catch.

Coach Bill Hayward has been re
sponsible in a large measure for his
remarkable showing. Fee is noted for
his ability to keep in condition without
over exertion. He is conscientious and
willing. All that Coach Hayward has
to say is: "Chet, we need a couple of
points in the hurdles." or "See what
you can do with the shot for us," and
similar other expressions. Not once
has he failed to "bring home the
bacon," and In some instances he has
even surprised his tutor by bringing
home more than was intended.

TWO PITCHERS GAIN
Klawitter and Love Alone Im
OTHERS LESS EFFECTIVE
On Basis of Batting Averages of
Opponents Against Them Some
Pomanders Are "Sot Up to
Form of Year Ago.
On the basis of batting averages
made 'by opponents against Coast
League pitchers for the first 11 weeks
of the season. Including all games to
June 14, Dutch Klawitter, of Oakland,
and Slim Love, of Los Angeles, are
about the only pitchers who are show
ing a marked improvement over their
form of last year. Last season Loves
opponents rolled up an aggregate bat
ting average of .248 against hira; this
year Love is leading the pitchers in this
department, holding opponents to a
.207 average. Last season Dutch Kla
witter's opponents batted .279 against
him; this year the Dutchman is the
hardest-worked pitcher in the league
and is second to Love among the reg
ulars, holding his opponents to a .227
Hall, of Salt Lake, is third in the
ranking this year, holding opponents
to a .231 average. Fanning, of San
Francisco, who last year was found by
opponents at a .248 percentage, is
fourth this year, being charged with
a .232 percentage for opposing batters.
Hughes -nt to Fanning,
Next to Fanning comes Hughes, of
Los Angeles, also showing a slight im
provement, opponents batting .233
agarinst him, as compared with .238 last
season. Cack Henley, of Venice, is hold
ing opponents to .233, as compared with
.256 last year, and Claude Williams, of
Salt Lake, is holding opponents to .24 7,
one point lower than last year's record
Compared with these regulars who
are showing more or less improvement
In holding opponents to low batting av
erages are the records of some of last
year's reliables who are not proving
so effective this year. Thus, Spider
Baum, of San Francisco, last year held
opponents to a .266 batting average and.
this year is being touched up at a .308
clip. Against Lush, of Portland, op
ponents batted .219 last year and .258
this year: Ryan, Los Angeles, .234 last
year and .247 this year; Hitt, Venice,
.E36 last year and .274 this year;
Krause, Fortland, .239 last year and
.262 this year; Decannier, Venice, .245
last year and .263 this year; Higgin
botham, Portland, .251 last year and
.261 this year; Killilay, .260 last year,
while he was with Oakland, and .277
this year when he is with San Fran
cisco; Abies, Oakland, .261 last year
and .273 this year.
Records Are Given.
