Portland Leaguers Show Sturdily
in Game With Marylanders
: and Win,, 4 to 0.
' By R. A. Croala
CROCKETT. Cal., March 24. Pitchers
Lukanovlc and Cooper were too much
for Blankenshlp's Maryland bowlers of
Oakland, and held them to two hits, a
double ' off each. McCredle's regulars
made 14 hits off southpaw Artie Ben
ham, of which I1 Barker, garnered
three, and they were good for a 4 to 0
win.- Some good fielding toward the
end . of the game held down the count.
.-: Harl Macgert. who played center for
the, Bowlers, had a tough day of It, as
the- Beavers were raining everything
front singles to triples Into his territory
and they, were all going safe in the first
Inning. Cox ' tripled and scored on
Mitchell's error of Hitter's ground ball
for the first run.
v - Unarm rf Maka Trials
Tri the second Inning, with one down,
Bog&rt tripled over ' Maggert's head.
Kuller followed with a two base hit to
left, -Blue came on with a jingle de
fender and Fuller was caught at -the
Hate by Maggert. Blue ,cme "n on
the throwin and scored when Farmer
did a short fly to center. - Farmer
moved along when Maggert tried to head
Blue at the Hale, and Big Jack tallied
on Walker's single to center.
The victory was not without Its cost,
for in the sixth inning Maggert in slid
ing, back, after being caught off by a
throw from Baker, spiked Blue in the
foot. The Injury is not serious and he
will be back on the field In a day or so.

With a majority of major

clubs inaugurating spring training in
Dixie today, the baseball experts are
casting about for entrants that may fig

may be figured in this class, but two

One of these teams will be piloted by
the veteran Connie Mack.
The Athletics, with the capable players

performers as Witt. Grover and Bates,
back from the service, show possibilities
that are difficult to measure. Mack's

Just about what to expect from one an
other. But the Athletics are an un
known quantity and hard to figure.
In the National league rival managers
will keep a weather eye on Pat Moran,
who inaugurates his regime as the man

Moran's success when he took hold of
the Phillies is still fresh in the memories
of his brother managers. At Cincinnati
"Sir Patrick" will step in with a club
that has great natural hitting ability,
and it is understood that he will call in
Qscar Dugey as his assistant. Moran's
one great problem is the filling of the
shortstop position, and it is predicted
that he, will sign Buck Herzog for this
important Job.

Crockett Training
Camp Shortstops
By B. A. Cronln
Crockett, Cal., March 24. Few young
catchers with a Portland ball club have
shown the ability .of Wirts, the youngs
ster who was with St. Marys college
for three years and then went to Spo
kane last spring, later finishing ou(
the season in the Portland shipyards.
We'll lay a hat to a doughnut that
Wirts will make good as a catcher. He
has action behind the plate and he can
hit the ball well. He is more advanced
than Dorman, but boys, this rangy San
Francisco youngster is going to be
heard from. A year in Texas or the
Central association will do Dorman a
world of good. Wirts may open the
season with the Beavers, if Koehler is
unable to get out of the army, and it
looks now as if he will give his more
experienced rival quite a battle for the
job of understudy' to Del Baker.
Some of the northern bays5 who get
their drinking water from the sriow-ctad
hills of Oregon . and Washington, the
purest water in the wide world, find it
difficult to drink the alkali aqua of
California. The water here is more
alkaline in structure than that of the
eastern or. central Oregon country-
Frank Walker takes as wicked a cut
at the ball of any medium plied fellow
that we've seen. He looks as if he
might hit a good deal to left field, but
his drives are going to be long wherever
they go. Walker is yonng but he has
a natural finish to his work in the out
field, having the knack of starting with
the ball, which makes his ground cover
ing look large.
There is no more conscientious work
er in camp than Rapp and the little left
hander who saw so much service in the
New York State league is going to
make a bid for the job of leading left
handed pitcher. There is one thing
that Rapp knows, and that is how to
pitch. His easy delivery makes It pos
sible for him to work more often than
the ordinary ball player.
We have a little smoke bet on with
Art Ritter. Art thinks that Seattle will
have a bigger opening day crowd than
Portland. Art, we might add, is very
young and he has a lot to learn about
the psychology of baseball crowds.
Given a nice warm day and at dry field
in each northern city, we are ready to
smoke all summer on our misguided
friends who think as does the youthful
Mr. Ritter, the well-known foul chaser.
One of the San Francisco papers as
serted that Bill Rodgers and the Raw
Meat boys from Sacramento say the
reason the Senators were billed for one
week in the Rose City was to relieve
Walter McCredie of a lot of kidding at
the hands of his ex -employes, who
carry all the howls of the wood, and
plain in their rooting. We were talking
the northerner. Battling Ortega, who to reslle'" un V rer day and
was scheduled to meet George Shade ofTthe Prexy 8ays that Judgre McCredle's
schedule calls for two i visits to Port
land by the Sacramento outfit, which
would seem to put the kibosh on the
Sacramento wail. As a matter of fact,
the Portland gang believes that it could
win the pennant and never lose a ball
game after Decoration day, if it had to
play Sacramento all season.
We were talking to Jack Roche, the
old Portland catcher, at St. Marys col
lege last Wednesday and ' Jaek offers
the statement that Del Howard will
have a better ball club this year than
he has . had since his tenure at tfie
transbay metropolis. Jack himself is
in good condition and the Oakland fans
are banking on him developing into one
of the best first Backers in the circuit.
Roche can hit and they say he is not so
clumsy on his feet - as some of the
critics imagine.
Tha Portland ball club is closer to the
center ef things this year than eves be
fore, thanks to the invitation of the
Crockett Boosters. 'Every time the club
makes a trip it runs into some Coast
league ball players, and the line orr the
strength of the clubs fs better than, be
fore. Within a line of, say,-75 miles,
we have four clubs "at work Salt Lake
at Pittsburg, Pertland at Crockett.. Oak
land at home and San Francisco at
Santa Clara. The easy jumps are : ap

The Most
Precious Thing
in the world is self-respect.
Whatever increases it is good; whatever
lessens it is bad. That is self-evident.
The hobo, the man always in debt, the man
dependent on others, possesses little self-'
respect. ..,.': ;,' -' - " : .-X '
But the man who has a bank account will
admit that hi respect for himself increases
with each addition to his , balance. Self
respect is a by-product of Saving.
