Visitors Have Heavy Hitters
- and Pitcher With Tre
A mendous Speed
Saleni hgh met and vanquished
its hardest competition for the
year Friday afternoon by defeat
ing the Newberg team 13 ta 7. It
looked more like defeat for Sa
lem up to the sixth inning, when
the visitors were 6 to 4 in the
lead. And they were hitting the
ball like Ken Williams or Babe
Ruth. They are the star batters
of the intcrschoiastlc eague, so
far as Salem has seen them this
year. ;' " : 1 : . . ; . S ? J'
They showed poor judgment,
however, in shooting their, heavy
artillery down towards Paul.tGir-
od, the diminutive second-baser.
He pulled down three of the hot
test liners, ever hit on Oxford
field,, besides others that were
not quite so' dangerous. . He" rob
bed the visitors of every chance
that they sent his way. The visit
ors put In a Walter Johnson pitch
er who showed l a . tremendous
speed that at first bad Salem ut
terly wild, but finally his speed
failed, and they hit hfm heavily.
Coach Huntington says he lias the
greatest speed he has "ever, seen
in a high school player. .
Louis Glrodjof Salem, first man
up to bat, hit f a homer in the
first inning and Rex Adolph.who
got four safe hits in the game, al
so hit one f four-baggerJ A New
berg batter also hit a home run,
with one man on the base.
Salem is to meet Woodburn this
afternoon on Willamette field, for
a return game. The last meeting
at -Woodburn was excessively dis
astrous to Woodburn. It only
went seven innings. - f '
- Following this game Salem and
Silverton high will hold a track
and field meet, on the same fijeld.
They win stage practically every
thing ever given in such mets.! ex
cept the pole vaults and the hur
dles. - The relay will be 800 yards,
with four runners on each team, to
cover 220 yards each. It is not
knawn what Silverton. can offer In
any of these track events. The Sa
lem team will put in a number
ot consistent performers who will
make hot competition.' 1
