Which takes in considerable territory . . . Best reason for the uncom-
ing Wenatchee franchise switch is found in the fact that the Chiefs
with a first division club are averaging only around 800 admissions
per game at home. In 1948 the average was nearly 1600. A familiar
ring to that, wot? ...
It has often been said that vp-staters have a time of it trying
to pick up a good word when participating in athletie events in
Portland, and that said Portlanders take good eare of their very
own fledglinrs. period. We could rite a certain Coast-Western
International leagve baseball tieop as one form of such Ignominy
but would rather take a bite at the recent state AAU swimming
tournament in which one John Goode. a 16-year-old backstroker
for the Portland . Athletic club, was "terrific, colossal and stu
pendous" for establishing a "new state record" of 1:22.1 for the
100-meter race. Should the big: city boys wish proof of It. we can
go back exactly one year and prove to them that Bob Hamblin
f Salem, then 1C and in the same tournament race, stroked the
distance in 1:21.2, almost two- full seconds faster than Goode's
"record." In short, they've probably lost last year's records.
Mebbe on purpose ...
Local Gait Shoot for Votc
Just about this time last year the local gals' softball team, then
the Maplettes under the mentorship of "Doc" Barrick, made a vow
that one day they would up and hang a loss on the cocky but talented
"Bullet Betty" Evans & Co, the Lind Florists of Portland. The Linds
are annually one of the best femme softy outfits in the country. The
Salems aren't in their class, but are working along that line, now
as the village Jary Florists.
Once this season the Salems
off the Portland hotshots in an exhibition game at The Dalles. That
one went overtime and to the Linds. Another chance comes Tuesday
at Waters field, and if the Linds aren't already aware of it they had
best take their top shots that night. Gals like Dorothy and Bobby
Richardson, Toots Shotwell, Jackie
to make that vow of a year ago come true ...
The trio of Senator players slapped with fines Thursday
night have been In for considerable abuse by the baseball-talking
natives around town who, as it was bound to happen, have
the boys guisty of everything from looting the park to joining the
communists, just so they won't be bruised too badly by the wags,
we might tattle that the boys were assessed for the more or less
fatigued condition they were in when they arrived late at the park
from a fishing excursion that day up on the Santiam. What the
heck, anyone will have a soot of such fun as that once in awhile.
Don't know whether they caught any fish or not but their catch
of that night from the Senator bosses was enough for any one day,
Tis a cinch they'll wait until after
