THE SUNDAY OEEGOXIAX, PORTLAND, FEBRUARY 11, 1917. FARMER SHIES AT TRIP TO HONOLULU Roster of Beavers Who Will Brave Ocean Dwindles , to Seventeen. DISAPPOINTMENT IS FELT SOME NEW AND OLD PLAYERS WHO WILL BE SEEN IN UNIFORMS OF PORTLAND PACIFIC COAST LEAGUE TEAM DURING COMING SEASON, Pitcher Fincher Asleep Way Down In Arkansas and bo Will Not Train on Islands Holdout Cases Are Fending. The McCredles were much put out yesterday at receiving? a telegram from Floyd Farmer. Pittsburg outfielder, that he could not arrive in Portland from his home at Lebanon, Term., in time to make the trip to Honolulu. As Farmer was one of the regulars counted on to leave for the north Tuesday night, the Portland owners were disappointed. Farmer's inability- to get on the ground in time cuts the Kanaka squad down to a lean 17 men. Also it leaves but two outfielders, Kenneth Williams and Dennis Wllie. Lyle Bigbee, who arrived yesterday, came to the rescue with the remark that his brother, Car son, the ex-University of Oregon boy who was sold by Tacoma to Pittsburg last season, would be glad to make the journey, and he will be taken if such is the case. It seems that Bigbee be lieves he can fix It with Pittsburg to report a little late. If Carson Bigbee does not go, Ed Johnson, Butte outfielder and Vancou ver, Wash., boy, will be taken to fill out the outfield. "I felt that a case like this of Farm er's would come up," said Judge Mc Credie. "Pitcher Bill Fincher, secured from St. Louis, is another one who pulled the same stunt, and he will re port at Stockton. He slept too long in Holly Grove, Ark." Lyle Bigbee was the only Beaver to show up yesterday. He came from Waterloo, Or. Catchers Frank O'Brien and Robert Marshall; Pitchers Kenneth Penner and Herman Schatzleln; Infleld ers Bill Stumpf, Bill Rodgers, Charley Hollocher and Ralph Pinelli, and Out fielder Kenneth Williams are due today. Pitchers George Helfrich and Mark Hlgbee are scheduled to arrive tomor row. Judge McCredle would like to have Pitcher Johnny Brandt, Portland semi-professional, call and see him. Brandt will be taken to Honolulu and the Portland prexy wants to be assured that he will go. Fred Peters, Portland clgarman- and schoolboy friend of Pitcher Fred L. Beebe. who was released by Cleveland to Portland and then sold to Louisville, of the American Association, has received a letter from the veteran, wherein he asks Peters to ascertain just what the McCredles would be willing to pay him if he signed a two-year contract. At the time he wrote the letter, Beebe -evidently did not know that he haj been sold to Louisville. The cash received for him was paid to St. Louis, of the American League for First Baseman "Babe" Borton, who te now holding out tor a Federal League sal ary. Here Is part of Beetle's letter to Peters: "I didn't want to come to Portland for two reasons. I heard It was very damp and also the season is seven months TTing. If you know McCredle personally, what Le the most he would erive me to pitch with a two-year con tract? "My record for the last three years Is just as good as any pitcher in the country: Year. City. W. I,. 1014 Buffalo 22 8 1015 Buffalo 27 7 laia Cleveland a s 65 18 "Also hit well each year and was used as pinch hitter. I used to get $550 a month from Buffalo before the Fed eral League made it poor. "Am feeding 50 head of steers and outdoors all the time. Have quite a business and can't afford to leave It for a small salary. I rent 60 acres to go with my 35 of fruit and alfalfa and go shares with two brothers who work it for me. Write me the dope." Fred L.. Beeb's ranch Is at Paonla. Delta County, Colorado. He appears to be a regular business man for he has his own letterheads. Before the Louis ville deal was made, the 36-year-old chucker had written the McCredles saying that he intended to coach a col lege nine and would like to play In that vicinity. He asked, as a personal favor, that a deal re made for him. Nothing new developed yesterday on the cases of Holdouts Al Leake (Rocky Mount), L. D. Brenton (New Orleans) Borton (St. Louis), Paddy Slglln (Pitts burg) and Billy Southworth (holdover) Judge McCredle will write each of them . before leaving Tuesday night. He has been too busy gathering those willing to go to Honolulu to spend any time fooling with those who are not going. When they come to terms they will be advised to report at Stockton March 14, one week before the gang return from the islands. Pitcher Fincher and Outfielder Farmer are two regulars who have agreed to terms who will report at Stockton on that date, along with a batch of "bushers." All of the holdouts want more salary with the exception of Brenton secured from New Orleans for Kelly and Nixon. He won't sign until President Fultz, of the fraternity tells him he is at liberty to do so. Those reporting at Stockton will work out with Nick Williams' Spokane Indians until the crew returns from Kanakaland.

Raley 0 Totals 18 Johnston and Griffin Will Play Through In Doubles Tonrnament and Not Have to Defend Hon ors All in One Big Match. BAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 10. (Special.) Dr. Sumner Hardy and members of the Pacific States Tennis Association who successfully led the fight against the proposed rules to bar sporting goods salesmen as amateur naturally were pleased with the result of the National meeting. They argue that the present rules, if enforced will keep the sport as clean from professionalism as athletics, golf or other competitions. ihe rule that still stands reads as follows: An amateur Is one who Is not con nected with the sale of tennis goods or with a firm manufacturing or selling tennis goods, except when such connec tion shall be of a general nature in a firm manufacturing or selling general athletic goods to no greater extent than with any other line of goods." Fight Made for Trio. "We contended from the start," says Dr. Hardy, "that the rule now in force will cover any case of abutting privi leges. We led the fight for three little fellows. In case of players employed only for. their reputation as tennis play ers and who take off the whole Sum mer for tennis play, the National as sociation can take action and bar them. The boys legitimately employed in sporting goods stores, however, tshould not be made to suffer for a few of fenses committed by the players of greater reputation." At the annual meeting of the Pa cific States Association on Thursday the doings at the gathering will be discussed. Secretary J. C. Rohlfa will return from the meeting and likely will have some views to present to the Coast tennis leaders. With the ama teur question settled, however, the talk of the West breaking away from the Fast has died down. A prominent 6an Francisco expert today sayi: "The fact that the National double tournament will be contested like the singles title with no sectional elimina tion events is approved. The West wanted the old system to stay in force. It Is probable that the winners of . the Coast doubles will be sent Bast the time as usual to play through th tournament. Johnston and Griffin, the champions, also will have to play through and not defend their honors In one big match, as was the programme heretofore. Wot Feels Long; Trip. It makes quite a difference to the Western players. It is all right for the Easterners who are practically within a stone's throw of their homes, but the boys here have to make the long trip across the continent and then have to devote so much time parti cipating in the many matches neces sary to go through the tourney. ' At a meeting on Thursday delegates from the clubs in the Intercity Tennis League last season will be called to gether to organize another circuit. The . Pacific States Association will sanction the league competition: Clubs from Sacramento. Stockton, Berkeley, Alameda. Oakland, San Jose San Fran cisco and the universities of California and Stanford likely will be in the league again. The California club was the winner of the first league trophy. Business of ranking the players on their performances of 1916, mapping out the fixtures for the coming season and routine matters will come before the delegates. defeated the Chemawa Junior basket ball team here last nleht, 40 to 21.

AGGIES WILL TRAVEL BASKETBALL GAMES AT SEATTLE THURSDAY AM) FRIDAY. to Team Will Go Direct From North Berkeley, but May Stop for Multnomah Match. -OREGON AGRICULTURAL COL LEGE, Corvallls Feb. 10. (Special.) With the Oregon Agricultural College Washington State College contest rele gated to the ranks of history, the last basketball game of the season has been played on the Aggie courts. On Wednesday Coach May will bundle eight of his 11 regulars aboard the train for Seattle, where retiirn games will be played with the University of Washington quintet on Thursday and Friday. In the two-game series played the first of this week at Corvallls, the Aggies dropped the first game but cap tured the second, so May is expecting a strong opposition. From Seattle the Oregon champs will travel direct to Berkeley, Cal., where games will be played with Uni versity of California February 20 and 21 and with Stanford at Palo Alto February 22 and 23, which will be the last conference games played. Mult nomah Club has asked for a game February 17. It has not yet been de cided whether the Aggies will go south from Seattle by boat or by rail, but If the land route Is picked it Is probable that the winged "M" five will be met in Portland on Saturday. In the game which was played with Washington State College last Friday night, the Aggies were worsted by the invaders to the score of 28 to 17. The squad which will journey north Wednesday will be picked from the fol lowing men: Sieberts.- Friedman, B'.agg. Ray, Low, Phillips. Newman, Bissett, Reardon, Myers. Kakln. y. fil. C. A.

War Situation Recognized by Au thorizing Executive Committee to Cancel All Tournaments Where Warranted. NEW TORK. Feb 10. The annual meeting of the United States National Lawn Tennis Association closed early today with a fairly even break between I the East and West on questions which ! caused sectional divisions. The representatives from west of the Alleghenies defeated the proposed ama teur rule which would bar from ama teur ranks players in the sporting goods business; but all the Important National championship tournaments with one exception, were awarded to clubs In the Atlantic states. As a result of this action, the present amateur rule will stand. This rule permits an amateur tennis player to maintain a connection with a firm manufacturing or selling athletic goods provided he "has to do with tennis goods to no greater extent than with any other lino of goods." The est was successful also In de feat In a: a rule proposed by the execu tive committee which would have gov erned and limited the payment of ex penses of players competing in sanc tioned tournaments. A few minor amendments of the amateur rule were adopted. The most . Important of these provides that a player shall lose his amateur status by permitting or sanctioning the use of his name to advertise or promote the sale of tennis goods for pecuniary profits or by permitting his name to be ad vertised or published as author of books or articles on tennis of which he is not actually the author. The meeting recognized the war sit uation by authorizing the executive committee to cancel all or any sanc tioned tournaments in case such action appeared warranted. The only sectional contest over the award of National tournaments was be tween the Longwood Club, of Boston. and the Onwentsla Club, of Chicago, both of which applied for the doubles championship. The Boston club won the event ty a vote oi lis to 83. The National singles tournament and the junior and boys' National cham pionship tournament were awarded to the West Side Club, of Forest Hills. L. I.: the women's National singles, doubles and mixed doubles champion went to the Philadelphia Cricket Club, and the indoor championships to the Seventh Regiment Club, of New York.
