'.; Bill Rodgera, former Beaver aecond baaeman, will again Join the Portland Hub; . according to Information from Cincinnati. A dispatch from the Ohio fltjr aaya the directors of the Cincin nati club held a meeting yesterday and formally turned over Rodgers to Port land. " Judge McCredle. owner of the Beav er, stated last nlsrht thr.t he had not been notified of Rodger's transfer back to Portland, but that ire expected to cet word from the Ohio city today. . Rodgers' release by Cincinnati comes as the result of the regulation reducing the number ef players to 21 men to a teami and in view of the tmrchase bv Cincinnati of Fisher from Los Angeles. Rodgers' release .warf necessary. Rodgers formerly played with Port- ' land and was admitted one of the moat aggressive players in the league Jle was taken by Cleveland in 1916, and later on was taken by the Boston Red ' Sox. which later, last summer turned him over to Cincinnati. f Ha was held by Cincinnati until this sorinar in hopes that his weak arm would gain strength. Should the transfer take place. It means that Vaughn will play-ahort stop and. Rodgers will play second . base and perhaps take the captaincy Of the Beavers. Ward or Hollocher .will be released. . During his career Rodgers was . remarkable success, and was with the team during its pennant winning. Mis acquisition means that the Beavers " will have a stronger Infield. . He is terrific hittar, fast fielder, and in . 114, While with Portland, lead the i league with the highest number of ' stolen bases, about 80. - A ticket was wired Rodgers late las night, at Cincinnati, although no men sage has been received officially by Auxiliary Manager George B. Cellars, who Is in charge while Judge McCredi Ja at the springs. It was hoped Rod gers would reach Salt Lake Saturday so tfhat he could go into Los Angeles with the Beavers and talk over th situation In the Coast league. v- fr I BACK STOOPIN Wi. 5Sfc 1 OVER LIKE. Yffy Iff V IraH P '"'-"III' 1 y Fielder Jones, leader or the flopping St. Louis Americans, Is the first man ager Who will send a scout out to see Louis Guisto, Portland's sensational first baseman, according to informa tion from St. Louis. 'Before the drafting season opens either Scout Charley Barrett or Busi ness Manager Branch Rickey will come to .the coast to pass the critical eye en the big fellow. In fact, the St. Louis club figures that It already has Guisto under its wing and all that is neces sary is to turn over the "polpers." , However, the St. Louis club may flnj Itself mistaken. There are other clubs desiring the big fellow and St. Louis i will have to bid Just as will Cleveland, ' Pittsburg, Detroit and others who are , after him. ' - .-Jones Has Wo Option on Club. l' St Louis advices mention that four i playera were turned over to Portland l and In turn McCredie figures he should end Guisto to the Browns. An a mat ter Of fact St. Louis turned Bobby Vaughn and Al Sothoron to Portlan.l. Regardless of what arrangement was made, Jones was given no option on the Portland club. He has, doubtles. options on Vaughn and Sothoron, Just as Cleveland probably has an option on some of the players It turned over to Portland. These do not make an op tlo'u on the club. In fact, the Portland owners have never given an option on the club in return for the use of one or wo players. Oomiskejr Also Wants Xou. Much of the trouble of the other Coast league clubs has been due to this giving of club options and any number of ball players have gone away for a mediocre ball player. Such was the case with Ed Klepfer of the Vernon club and Claude Williams of Salt Lake who went to the Chicago Whfte Sox. Comiskey is very anxious to get Guisto but he would hardly be given an op- tloi on the club in the future, ever though a deal was made, sending the big Malian boy to the Windy City. Anyhow, Scout Barrett of the Browns has started his tour of the minors and his first stop will be in the Western league. Do you remember little Claude W Hams and his "floater" that-fooled so many batters of the Coast league last year? Well, it is tooling a lot or Dig league batters. Including some umpires. Ollie Chill is the latest umpire to be fooled. He was working back of the bat iu a recent game and thought Wil liams was using the emery ball. He topped the contest while he examined the pellet, could find no contusions and bade the man from Salt Lake con tlnue pitching. An old timer rises to remark that the engagement in Portland Just closed by the Beavers was the most disastrous since 1896, when a league was organized in the northwest with Seattle, Victoria, Tacoma and Portland in the circuit. The local club was hit so hard by rain that it went "broke," and Glen&lvin, the manager, it is said, hopped out of town with the receipt after the first Sunday, leaving the players stranded. Among them wa Jack McCarthy, the old Coast leagu umpire, wHo is now In the cafe busi ness in California. When Glenalvin took the run out powder, the league went flooey. However, baseball is on a firmer foundation these days, and while the loss of eight games at home lu the first month hits the pocketbook hard, it will not bankrupt the club nor break up the league.

Recreation park was the scene yes terday of the annual battle de luxe between Lincoln high and Washington high baseball tossers. The game, which in' the past has always been held on Multnomah field, was played on the Pacific Coast grounds because Multno mah field was being used by the gram mar school children, 'rne game was very slow, but the rooting of 700 fans and fannettes helped a lot toward mak ing the game Interesting. Over 400 of the spectators were girls. Just why Is not known; perhaps they wanted to hear Umpire Ed Rankin's beautiful ivric tenor. It was the largest and most enthusiastic crowd that has at tended an interscholastic game this season. The final score was 9 to 7 in favor of Coach Borleske's tossers. Washington high started the scoring by getting two runs each in the first, second and third innings and one In the fourth. Lincoln was not able to solve Thompson's curves until the fourth In ning, when they .squeezed one run across. The fifth inning was a disastrous one for Thompson. Carter, the first man up, was an Infield out. Llnd was safe on Peterson's error. Knudson singled through third and in the hurry to get Llnd at second the ball was thrown to the left field bleacher fence. Lin 1 scored and Knudson took third. Parks singled to short, scoring Knudson. Parks then stole second, while Thomp son was walking Jennings. This was enoug-h for Thompson and Williams went In the box. He started out by walking Lillard, and filling the bases. but Holt was easy prey and struck out. In the meantime Parks was out at third. In the seventh Lincoln put across one more and in the eighth on a com bination of one hit and some errors the cardinals gathered in four more and won the game. , Steele started the game, but was not in his proper form and was replaced by Knudson in the third inning. Knud son was the star of the afternoon and in the five and a half innings that he pitched struck out 13 andllowed but two clean hits.
