Fans have been wondering why
the legue was inactive, with the
exception of one game at Cottage
Grove, for the last two weeks in

Oxford Park diamond in use for
The fact is that it was not the
Senators' - fault nor their choice,
that they remaned idle. Albany
and Eugene diamond had not
been pot in condition, and it was
reported ..that they could not be
made fit for play because of the
recent rains. Meanwhile, Salem,
Bend, . Wendling and Cottage
Grove fans and club managers be

ranged Independent games.

The league schedule calls for a
game with Wendling here next

TEAM BEITS SHS
The Salem high school swim
minsr team suffered their first de
ffcift cf the season last night when
they were trounced 40 to 13 by
the Multnomah Junior swimming
ieam of Portland in the Y. M. C.
A. tank before a large crowd.
This is the first year that the
Salem high school has ever held
any swimming meets, and they
considered it lucky if they would
win only one meet this season.
Already they have defeated two
of the strongest high school teams
by large margins. In one or two
more seasons it is believed that
Salem will have one of the strong
est swimming teams in the state.
They are being coached by Louie
Anderson, high school athletic

swimming over at the local high
