AN FRANCISCO, Cal., Jan. 26.
O (Special.) I nave just unisnea a
long chat with "Bill" Rodgers, the
new manager of the Sacramento Sen
ators. '3111" Is all worked up on this
Sacramento proposition. He feels the
responsibility of his new position, and
he Is bound and determined to give his
ownera a good run for their coin.
Rodgers passed through San Francisco
thia week on an automobile trip that
will take him to Los Angeles.
"It'a a close-to-the-g;round excur
sion" for Bill. He wants to talk with
the fans and the magnates and every
body else; wanta to find out how they
feel about matters In general, and
then feels that he will have a better
general Una on matters.
"I hope to give Sacramento a pennant-winning
club," aald the little fel
low In his quiet way. "But of course
that'a something that wa can't depend
upon. This much, however, is a sure
shot Sacramento will have a fighting
ball club. That'a something I have al
ways Insisted on. I don't care how
far behind my club may be, I want
them fighting Just the same.
"Let's figure that you and I are
fans. We go out to the ball grounds
and see the visiting club take a lead of
eight or nine runs. That will happen
In the best regulated families. Now the
ordinary pitcher will say to himself,
"Oh, well, what's the use of worrying?
We have lost this game and I might
as well save my arm.'
T don't want that feeling on my
team. The fans don't want it. They
are going to look for a fighting team.
It haa a good effect on the fellow who
pays hia two bita and a good effect
on the team. Now, aa I have said. I
may not be able to produce a pennant
winner, but tha boya will be fighting."

tha Oaklnnd East Bay League. Bill
admita that he would like to have
Steen aa a Sacramento pitcher and
figures he haa a chance to hook up
with tha former Seal hurler.
Here's another thing, while we are
on tha subject. Rodgers vows that he
will stay by the salary limit- He ad
mits that sometimes It will be a tough
proposition, but says that Is the one
request made of him by his club own
ers. And Rodgers has so much regard
for tha men at the head of his team
he intenda to go as far only as they
The new manager already has picked
the Los Angelea and Salt Lake clubs
aa the ones that are going to be hard
to beat. He thinks these teama have
suffered less In loss of men than the
other aggregations, and that It isn't
going to be aa much work for them to
build up. He admita that Sacramento
la far from being a finished ball club,
but lntimatea that he expects to land
lot of outside talent and some Cali
fornia novices aa well that will keep
him In the running.
The San Francisco Seals started to
send out contracts this week. Jerry
Downs Is the guilty party and an
swers yes when you ask him If con
tracts are in for k alashlng. Jerry says
It can't be helped and adds that if the
ballplayers atop to reason they will
realise the necessity of accepting the
new state of affalra without criticism
or talk' of holdouts.
I didn't remind Jerry that once upon
a time he waa a San Francisco player.
It makes all the difference in the world
whose ox is gored, and Downs prob
ably looks at matters in a different
light now that he is the team manager

OToole, Blackbnrne, Chappell and Rube
Marqnard Are Examples Alexan
der's Early Career Unspoiled.
Too much kind publicity has been
exceedingly harmful to many ballplay
ers of promise. Conspicuous examples
are Marty O'Toole, Lena Blackburne
(who gets another trial In the majors
this year) and Larry Chappell.
So much has been expected of them
because of what enthusiastic and hope
ful sport scnibes have written, that
they found the . task . too great for
them. In trying to surpass themselves
they have fallen by the wayside.
Pitchers in particular .have been hurt
by well-meant articles. It took Rube
Marquard much time and Manager 11c
Graw much patience finally to get by
the "J11.000 lemon" title that had been
hung on Rube.
Grover Alexander, tho great pitcher
recently sold to the Cubs, found the
other extreme true. He has been an
unusually fortunate young man. Lit
tie was said about him when he first
joined tho Philadelphia club. In fact,
so little was expected that he was
practically overlooked. Hence, he
started in at normal. He had every
thing to gain, but no knocks would
be flung at him if he failed to make
good. No fuss was made when he
pitched his first game, nor his second
nor fifth. He went at his task in a
matter-of-fact way, working easily and
naturally. As a result he had more
than made good when the scribes, man
agers and general public woke up.
Red Faber, White Sox pitching star
of the wonld's series, the man who won
three games from the Giants on the
slab, had somewhat the same experi
ence as Alexander. Callahan, when he
managed the White Sox. thought so
little of Faber he wanted to let him
go. Only John Mcuraw's desire to
land Faber foiled the ex-Sox manager.
Then Faber opened the season with
out fuss or much publicity, and it was
not long before everybody rubbed their
eyes and wondered where this latest
star dropped from. Fabeii was one of
the best in the American League in
his first year, and has been great ever
since when in condition.

Corvallis, Jan. 26. (Special.) Hockey
and swimming are ' Interesting the
co-eds of O. A. C. just now, and
both sports have a large following.
Women's athletics are being strongly
emphasized through a wide variety of
games for the semester.
The hockey players, who have been
practicing for the past few weeks, will
play off a series of games to finish up
tho season. Varsity players will meet
second-team girls in the college arm
ory. A large number of girls have
turned out for the game, so that much
good material is available. During
the early part of the season the game
was played outdoors.

for the college women. Although the
tank opened late in the season the
girls will hold interclass meets early
in April and will meet the University
of Oregon If plans can be completed.
The pool is small and it is difficult to
practice any fancy diving, but relays,
form in the crawl, side stroke, breast
and back are practiced, and plunge for
distance and speed are being worked up.
Several members of the varsity squad

material for the team.
