First call for football at the Multno
mah Amateur Athletic club will likely
be set as Sunday. September ". when a
meeting of candldatea for the 1919
eleven will be held in the clubrooms
and plans for the season talked over.
A football chairman at Multnomah club
was to be named tomorrow night at a
meeting of the trustees, but the step
may be put off until another week. As
yet no names have been mentioned for
the honor and little information ia
available on the question.
Dow V. Walker, manager of the
Winged M institution, will call the
meeting of players the first Sunday in
September.
The outlook for a strong eleven at
Multnomah club this year ia very
bricht and with the majority of last
year's stars back in the fold, combined
with a number of new and old gridiron
warriors, who have made their mark tn
the game, the clubmen should put forth
a stellar football machine. Last sea
son Multnomah club was rated as hav
ing one of the best if not the best
team on the Pacific coast. The Mare
Island marinea were the only aggrega
tion given a shade in superiority over
them and that was never proved, owing
to a misunderstanding which prevented
& game being played between the two
aq uads.
Multnomah club's first game Is ten
tatively scheduled to be played against
the Oregon Aggies at Corvallls October
. Coach Bill liarglss of the O. A. C.
team la In Portland at present and be
fore he returna to Corvallls may clinch
the contest.
October 11 Multnomah club Is sched
uled to play the University of Oregon
at Kugene. A return contest will be
fought out on Multnomah field on
Thanksgiving day, November 27.
Arrangements are now being made
for a game between Multnomah club
and Washington State college in Spo
kane October IS. but the game haa not
yet been actually signed by the offi
cials of buth institutions, but Is prac
tically a certainty.
O. A. C. will play Stanford on Mult,
nomah field on October 25. and Mult
nomah club will probably remain Idle
unless a trip Is arranged for on that
date. November 1. 8. 15 and 23 are also
open dates for the club eleven and will
be filled as rapidly as possible. Mult
nomah field will be taken on November
18 and 12. The University of Oregon
will tangle with Washington State col
lege on the historic gridiron on No
vember 8. while Oregon Agricultural
college will meet W. JS. C. on the club
field November 22.
Dow Wa!ker is dickering for games
with the University of Idaho, the Uni
versity of Washington and the Olympic
club of San Francisco. Idaho is anx
ioua to tackle Multnomah club this
year and has November 23 open. The
Idaho schedule up to date Is as fol
low: October 18, University of Oregon
at Moscow; October 25. University of
tioncaga at Spokane; November 1,
Washington State college at Pullman;
November 8. University of Montana at
Moscow: November 15, Whitman' col
lege at Walla Walla. Graduate Man
ager Bleamaster is also trying to land
a game with the University of Utah.
There will be material a-plenty for
the Wiyged M team.
Some of the football stars who will
be on deck will be Dave Philbln. Bill I Scout,
Snyder. Len Strieblg. Alex Donaldson.
Os Day. Jack Day. Tom Loutitt. Bill
Ilimple. Mike Block. Andy Felchtinger,
Hu?h:e McKenna. Lionel Kramer. Fred
Kribien. Nate Linman. George Busch,
and a host of others, all well-known
p;Kkin pounders.
other former college snd university
stars will heave in sight by the time the
start of the season rolls around and
there will be a grand battle for posi
tions on the first team.
The Boston Red Sox last week took
on Charley Wagner as coach. Wagner
returns to his old position with the Red
Sox after taking a fling at minor
league ball in New England. He man
aged the Portland team in the New
England league, which disbanded last
week.
President Ban Johnson is quoted as
saying that he will put the shine-ball
argument up to the American league
magnates at their winter meeting and
ask what legislation against it is ue
sired. This is an admission that some
steps should be taken to curb freak
deliveries.

Instantaneous Eye Necessary
Judge, Points When Fast Men
Are on Firing Line.
NEW YORK. Aug. 13. (Special)
When the score is two sets all In an
exciting match for the national tennis
championship, the gallery has eyes
only for the players, and even under
less exciting conditions it seldom
thinks much of the officials who help
in the conduct of the event. The um
pire is taken for granted, along with
the net and the balls. If anyone
stopped to think how difficult it would
be to follow the play without the in
formation that comes with the comple
tion of every point, it would be easy
to realize the part the officials had.
"It is no easy task to handle a big
match properly," said Edward C. Con
lin, chairman of the National Tennis
Umpires association. "The merely
.physical qualifications are an import
ant factor. With men who hit the ball
like Murray and Williams and John
ston and Tilden. perfect eyesight is the
first essential. A tennis ball is 'on
Its way' when it crosses the net after
any of them hits it, and an umpire has
to be blessed with Instantaneous per
ception and decision to call the playa
properly.
"While the umpire serves as a con
necting link between the match and the
railery. the linesman, footfault Judges
and other officials are fully aa import
ant, for a wrong decision by any of
them may change the result of the
whole match."
More than $6500 In stakes will be up
for the racing programme at the Mult
nomah county fair at Gresham, Sep
tember 16 to 20. Eight events have
been billed as follows: 2:25 pace, purse,

With the opening of the deer season!
but one week away, Portland nimrodsl
are oiling up their pieces and prepar
ing for the initial 1918 hike into the I
wilds. Already 30,000 hunting lioensesl
have been sold by Carl D. Shoemaker,
state fish and game warden, and he
expects to hand out 10,000 more before
the end of the season. Warden Shoe
maker says this will be a record
season.
The deer season opens all over the!
state, with but two exceptions, Sep
tember 1 and lasts until October 31 in- I
slusive. The only exceptions are In
Union and Wallowa counties, where the I
season opens September 10 and closes I
November 10. The bag limit is two I
deer with horns during the season.
Favorite Spots Many.
The upper McKenxIe river and thai
upper Willamette are favorite deer I
hunting spots. Both are reached by I
way of Eugene. Douglas county gives
Portlanders the Tiller section which Is I
reached by train to Kiddle and by tak
ing a stage there to the hunting I
grounds. It cap also be reached by au-1
tomobile direct.
West Fork, in Douglas county, which I
Is reached by train, will be the ren-
desvou for many a hunter while the I
North Umpqua and Camaa valley sec
tions, reached by automobile from
Roseburg, will accommodate many.
Medford is the central point for hunt
ers who wish to shoot in Jackson I
county where most of the favorite I
haunts can be reached by automobile. I
The best places in Josephine county I
are accessible from Grants Pass. Coos I
and Curry counties afford good hunting!
and the best places can be reached by I
automobile. Klamath deer prospects I
are attractive. Headquarters for hunt- I
ers proceeding to Wallowa and Union
counties are at Enterprise and La I
Grande, respectively.
In western Oregon automobiles reach I
many of the better hunting grounds
It must be understood, however, that a I
camp must be made and in some in
stances it will be necessary to park the I
automobile and move on by way of I
pack horses.
llnntera to Be Busy.
With the deer season opening In a I
week and the open season on wild birds!
starting October 1, the Portland shoot- I
ers are to have a busy session.
Carl D. Shoemaker, state fish and
game warden, has written a few
don'ts which go for all shooters. They I
follow:
Don't shoot at moving brush.
Don't shoot until you can see the I
horns.
Don't wear khaki outfits unless you
wear some bright color to identify you I
as a numan being instead of a deer.
Don t fail to put out campfires.
Don't go hunting without your li
cense on your person.
Don t fail to attach your tag to deer I
as soon as killed.
Don't shoot anything but bucks.
Don't carry your gun cocked or with I
cartridge In the chamber.
The season on silver gray squirrels!
lso opens September 1. lasting until I
October 31. The bag limit Is five squir
rels in any seven consecutive days. It
unlawful to hunt or catch a deer al
any time between sunset and one-half I
hour before sunrise. The code provides
tnat It shall be prima facie evidence of I
violation of this act if any person.
between such hours, with a gun, lies in
wlt upon or near the runways or trails
sed by the game animals.
It is unlawful at any time for any I
person within the state of Oregon. I
fter having killed a deer, to mutilate, I
or have in possession the carcass or I
kin thereof In any manner -so as to I

How big a bag will you bring back?
THEdiff erencebetween a bulg
ing bag and a lean one is
often a question of gun and
shells and not of shooting skill.
Make sure you have the right
game-getting combination shells
that kill when the aim is true, and
a gun that enables the shell to
make its best pattern.
Good shell patterns are either
allowed or -prevented by the char
acter of the gun barrel the cham
ber, bore and choke. "
Faulty chambering even more
than faulty choking tends-to mash
and "ball' the shot, making pellets
fall short or fly wide.
And if a gun is faulty in its most
vital part, the chamber, the chances
are that the bore is also carelessly
made.
From chamber to choke, the
barrels of the famous Winchester
Repeaters are bored to make the
shell throw its highest pattern.
They are free from shot-jamming
defects. They let the shell do its
full work.'

ELLER SHINE BALI EXPERT
Cincinnati Pitcher Is Exponent of
Freak Delivery.
Horace (Hod) Eller of the Reds, who
pitched a no-hit. no-run g-ame e'arly in
the season. Is an exponent of the shine
ball. Of course Eller may have been
usins; the delivery for some time, but
only recently has he employed it as
openly as he does now. He used it
against the Giants tn the two games
which he finished in the series which
ended in Cincinnati on Sunday and he
was practically unhittable in both
tames.
KUer has on the right leg of his uni
form trousers a generous smearing of
paraffins, and before he delivers a ball
to a batter he rubs It vigorously in the
preparation. In his back pocket he
carries resln and powdered emery,
which he also sifts over the ball occa
sionally. The result of this .doctoring
of the pellet Is that Eller has a fast
curve that Is difficult to reach or to
hit safety and some of the Giants nar
rowly missed breaking their backs as
they swung furiously at the ball deliv
ered to them by Hod.
The average pitcher who uses a shine
ball or similar delivery makes an at
tempt to conceal his application of a
foreign substance to the pellet, but
there is nothing surreptitious about

colonel was obdurate and said to the
American, Louis C. Schroeder of the
Y. M. C. A.: "You are trainer in chief
of the French army track and field
team, with absolute charge," and the
colonel stuck to it. (The French team
won seven places in the finals, winning

Cravath Strong for Bancroft.
Manager Cravath of the Phillies de
clares thnt he has the king- of nil short
stops in Dave Bancroft. This; of course,
will be disputed by different managers
in the National League, especially Fred
Mitchell. John McGraw, George- Stall
ings and Branch Rickey. Cravath's
assertion reopens the old argument as
to who is- the king of that -particular
position since Hans Wagner retired.' "I
think Bancroft the greatest shortstop
that ever played the position," said
Manager -Cravath. "Of course, -1-, am
talking about his fielding ability. He
i snot the best hitting shortstop in the
game and not the best base runner,- but
he does well enough in both to be con
sidered a star. When It comes to han
dliner grounders, playing for batters
and taking throws at second base, I do
not think there is another man playing
that position his equal.- That does not
bar Hollocher, Maranville, Fletcher or
Lavan." .. . -
Tennis Problem Puzzles.
Here is a teasing lawn tennis prob
lem -for the Wise officials of the rules
committee- to- untangle; it is a pretty
question for the theorists: During the
recent rainy ; days several players at
one. of . the clubs determined to brave
(he conditions just to knock the ball
around. They made up a doubles match
with a -dinner as the wager. In one of
the rallies the ball was lobbed and, as
it fell, stuck in the mud without a
bound. Now the question Is: Was the
player justified In scooping it up with
one stroke or scoop of the racquet, on
the plea that it had touched the ground
only once?

Some day some gun club that wants
to put on a novelty event and at the
same 'time advance the sport of trap
shooting will offer a trophy for a tour
nament for professional baseball play
ers, ei'her a cup to be won once, three
times, or to be shot for annually. -
And the club that does this little
thing won't be encouraging the worst
shot tournament in trapshootlng his
tory, either. There will be some low
scores of course, but the quality will
be good as tournaments go. There will
be more scores above 85 than under,
and 85 Is no mean score.
A good time, to stage such a tourna
ment would be during the playing of
the world's baseball series, for at the
October sports classic every baseball
player who can possibly attend graces
the ball yard with his person. -
There are gun clubs in every city, and
It would matter not the least whether
the shoot was held in New York. Cin
cinnati, Cleveland or Chicago, for there
are large, active gun clubs in these
cities, who could well handle- such a
tournament as this with distinction.
Some of the ballplayers who no
doubt would be very much interested in
such a tournament as mentioned above
are :
