So you want to own a ball Wub in the WIU eh? Better do some tall
thinking (and banking) first. Roughly, it costs $250 periday to keep a
club on the road. Vancouver after playing three days recently in Wesn-
.atchee to crowds of 750, 825 and 1000
actually lost money during the
sta'.d. Which is just an example of
how rough ttiings can be for the WIL
operators . . . Woodburn Bill Austin
is now well, into his "spring" prac
tice with the New York pro football
Giants, and although he has no Ail
American trophies or ribbons with
hint he have the support of
many who' believe, he has what it
takes to become another Eberle
Schultz or Len Younce in the pay-for-play
ranks . . , Another Wood
burner who did his collegiate chores
at OSC, this one Charley Sauvain
the lefty pitcher, is said to be ripe
for the pro scouts, but at a $5000
bonus and $500 per month for a
start. Charley had Brooklyn scouts
more than a little interested in him
.a few -years ago when he played
first ba.e. Now they're again perked
up over his consecutive no-hit,i 1-

able stunt local auto racer Max Humm and car-owner Don Waters
maneuver'. On Friday nights Humm pilots Waters "hot rod" roadster
in the lacer at Seattle, and on Saturday nights repeats; at Hollywood
bowl. Then on Sunday afternoon Humm herds the same car in the
dirt track "big car" races at Yakima. Only by then you wouldn't re
cognize the thing. They spend all of Satutday night unbolting the
jalopy-looking roadster body and replacing it with an attractively
aleek teguUr racing car form, and then reverse the procedure for the
next' rod race in Seattle ... '
i So far as we can gather; the reason 'Jimmy Ryan Isn't sponsor- .
, Inc the bowl race on Saturday nicht la this: Ryan soured on the
, oft poorly made and erratic clunkers and refused to promote their
- races In Portland, sticking to the more glamorous; faster and cost
lier midgets. Knocked out of Its racing- spot In Oregon, the Road
ster Rar In, association, headed by one Norm Snodgraos made a
deal with the bowl landlords here and with It squeezed out the
midgets. Snodgrass la backed by a couple of .Portland restauranU
cure. Oddly enough, most of the drivers, who pilot the midgets
;. Bob Gregg. Gordy Livingston. Lou Sherman, et al are also driv
ing In the rod races too . . . Should Snodgrass & Co, be wonder
ing what they can do to help themselves In their local venture,
they might try (1) having many more cart In their races, (2) not
spending nearly so much time between, races and (3) lengtheninjg
. the actual Jaunts themselves . . . j
It Can't Come Too Soon for Attorney William
One gent who can hardly wait until football season arrives is Fred
Williams, the large and oft-loquacious lawyer man who happens td be
one of the most faithful sports followers in the village. Fred has a
trip to make during football season, one that will be memorable in
deed. It will be to Iowa City, la., to not Only see th Iowa-Indiana
Homecoming game but to be a part of it as well. As a halftime feature
of that tilt there will be a reunion in midfield of the Iowa football
. team of 189:. Only seven of the members of that team are still alive,
'tis said, and Fred is very much one of the seven. Fact is, he was an
All-American conference end for the Hawkeyes that year ...
Inasmuch as -It's his last trip in for the season. Boss man Bill
Brenner of the Vancouvers could be welcomed this week via a tale
. of one of the prise baseball boobies of all time. You've heard of
: and seen some dandy diamond "skulls. but few will pa railed the
' one Bil the Bull pulled 'way back In the eary days of the WTJL.

Tis.said Johnny Nenezith was umpiring this particular game, but
we can't prove it until we talk to John.. Anyway, the bases were full
and the pitcher cut loose a wild heave thaBrenner only helped roll
clear to the backstop. Instead of .giving chase to the thing the excited
and eVring Bill reached behind him
JohnlNenezich neither moved or

Finally the dawn came for our man aa his pitcher galloped by
hint on the dead run. cursing with every stride, and all three of
the enemv runners took turns denting the dish. f i
It took William a long time to live that 'one ddwnjiut he finaUy
made it. And the Brenner who comes to town Friday night with! his
Capilanos is now'not only one of the loop's best backstops but hitters

Top Boner jby Legion Brats Hat Helped Dourn Salem
The method by which the American Legion junior baseball di
rectors allow certain teams to solidify themselves for playoffs has
been ridiculed by this corner for years. And new we have com
pany with 'our yipes since the Capital Posters were laid low la
their bid for a toumasnent.berth at Albany. Designed to give the
leaser cities a better sbot at the Mr boys a doubt, the rule says
players can be recruited front eeusblnatiea of prep schools pro
viding the total enrollment ef
. me player are recruited does not exceed ZOO students. f
This gave the Hillsboro team the fight to select at randdm any plav
ers it desired. So the Hills bo ros that Salem played actually amounted
to an au-stai team made up of kids from Hot only Hills boro, but Ti
Card, Forest Grove, etc. And then to make matter worse, the man
agement of the Capital Posters was told by State Junior 'Baseball
Chairman Jess Osborh of Portland that the Salem team was restricted
to Salem high school alone, and could -not recruit outside help. Salem
high's enrollment is considerably
, boner by rjsborn. ' - .
We had the seme headache to contend with back la 1S44 when

clown Al Schacht today -for Viot
only his hilarious deeds of the
diamond during his act last night
at Waters field,, but also for help

presence of such a cheering crowd
did wonders for the locals. They
played, and hustled like champ
ions instead of second divisioners
and rewarded the hefty gathering
with an artistically fashioned 4 to
1 victory.
Schacht got the throng into, the
mood with his 30 minutes of as
sorted antics. Bob Drilling fol
lowed through by uncorking one
of his best outings of the past two
seasons, handcuffing the A's with
seven scattered bingles. Only an
error kept the hard-throwing
righthander from racking up a
shutout The boot was entirely ex
cusable fn that it was made by
Mel Wasley at third, base, Mel
having been stationed at the far
turn again hv place of the injured
Bob Hedington.
. The win did no worse for" the
Salems than keep them in sixth
place and definitely broke the
spell the Vies seemingly had over
them in the first four games of
the series. Victoria now leads the
series, 3-2, and the final game to

Senator newcomer John Burak.
late ot Pacific university, facing
Joe Blankenship of the A's. It will
be Burak's first pro start. Blan
kenship is the gent who last sea
son established a new WIL record
with his 25 victories.
Another hard thrower, pete Vu
curevich, was the victim last
night. A righthander the Yankee
organization thinks a lot of, Pete
had but one bad inning, the sec
ond, to "ruin his game. Even then
a triple play, second, of the season
here, pulled him out of the bad
Wasley opened the frame by
banging one off the right-center
fence for a double. Manager BiU
Beard walked, and Orrin Snyder
lined a 3-and-2 pitch into left field
for a double and one rim. Claude1
Buckley, who was to have three
of the 10 Salem hits' for the night,:
singled sharply to center and Dril
ling himself followed suit. Three
runs were In with nobody ; out
and Vucurevich was shoulder
deep in miseries.
Then ' came the triple play, as
expertly and quickly accomplish
ed as any you'll fee. Marty Krug
lined high to Vic Buccolaat first
base and Vic promptly hopped on
the bag, doubling Drilling. He
then tossed to shortstop Russ Wal
seth who got Buckley as he at
tempted to' get! back to the NO. 2
This was the ball game as it
turned out, although Salem pick
ed up a disputable run in the fifth
on Wayne Peterson's single and
Bud Peterson s long smash against
the left field fence for a double.
Wayne had to slide in for the tally
and was called safe. All Victor
lans, and more than a few in the
seats were convinced he was out,
The Victoria run came in the
fifth on Catcher Bob Morgan's
single to center, Wasley's error
on a bad throw after fielding Vu
curevich's grounder, and Wal-
seth's ground-out the latter driV'
ing across the unearned tally.
Drilling was hit hard early in
the came, but had fine suDnort.
He got better as he went along
ana wouna up by walking only
pne and whiffing three. It was
his sixth victory of the season

here was by Tacoma on June 9

best prospects in the league this
year, was hurt in the fourth inn
