Hurling Shows Mark PCL;
Beavers Nosed in Ninth
(By kha Aasoclatad Prm)
Two beautiful pitching exhibitions Two-hitters by San Fran
cisco's Steve Nagy and Sacramento's Bob Gillespie spotlighted
Wednesday's Pacific Coast league baseball.
Nagy's moundwork shut out Seattle 2 to 0 and put the Seals a
full game ahead of Sacramento to lead the early season PCL
race. The game was a heart--
breaker for the Rainiers' Her
man Besse who pitched five hit
ball to lose. Mcikey Rocco's sin
gle in the eighth scored two
Seals runners for the ball game.
A crowd of 2644 watched the
pitching duel.
At Sacramento, Gillespie had!
a no-hit ball game on the fire
until the eighth when the Hol
lywood Stars got their only two
hits. The Stars paralayed the
hits with two walks and an error
for a three run payoff. But it
t wasn't enough. The Solons iced
the game in the fourth on five
unearned runs, all off Pinky
' Woods. Sacramento picked up
two more in the sixth for a 7-3
win before 3,493 hometown fans.
The Los Angeles Angels broke
a three-game losing streak with
a three-run ninth inning to best
Portland 8 to 7. Pinchitter Nel
son Burbrink singled to drive in
the winning run. Johnny Os-
trowski had scored the tying run
when he raced home on a passed
ball. Had Portland Catcher Ed
die Fernandes thrown to Pitcher
Jake Mooty, who was covering,
instead of trying to outrun us
trowski, the game might have
been Portland's. There were two
out at the time. The outcome
no doubt made the 2005 Angel
fans happy. John Rucker and
Harvey Storey hit homers for
Portland while Bill Schuster got
one for the Angels.
The Oakland Oaks, after a
slow start this season, once more
are looking like the champs they
were in 1948. They blasted the
'San Diego Padres for five runs
in the first inning and added two
more in the seventh for a 7 to 4
win. The loss, second in two
days from the Oaks, kept the
Padres in the league basement.
The Padres got only six hits
off three Oakland pitchers, Lou
Tost who held the Harrismen
hilless until the fourth, got cred-
it for the win. The San Diego
ffate was 4.348. biggest of the
night. .

At Walla Walla
Walla Walla, April 7 All
even as the resuit of their first
two games, the Willamette Univ
ersity Bearcats of Salem and
the Whitman Missionaries of
this city will conclude their
baseball series Thursday after
noon. The visitors won Wednes
day's opener 5 to 2 as the Bear
cats hit well behind Lou Scriv
en's six hit pitching. Five er
rors proved costly to the Mis
sionaries. Whitman evened the day's
program as they took the night
cap 2 to 1. The Bearcats were
charged with five boots which
handicapped Larry Stocks, los
ing pitcher to a considerable extent.

Dallas Coach Resigns
ror St. Helens Offer
Dallas Bob Daggett, popular Dallas hi?h school coach, has
resigned to accept a position as basketball atnd baseball coach at
St. Helens high school, it was disclosed Thursday.
Coach Daggett in making the announcement stated that he
was reluctant to leave Dallas, where he has been for the past years, but felt the step
important to his advancement t
in the field.
The resignation came as a I
surprise to friends and students,
although Daggett had notified
Carl Morrison, principal, and
S. E, Whitworth, superinten
dent, some time ago that he was
considering the new position.
At the end of three years
here, Coach Daggett could not
claim any championships in
the Willamette Valley league,
but he finished second in foot-

BY FRED ZIMMERMAN. Capital Journal Sports Editor
Vikings Recognized
The Salem high school Vikings didn't bring home the biggest
piece of hardware from the recent state tournament, but in this
writer's opinion they were every bit as good as the team that did
finish in the first spot. But that's a matter of history. What is more
to the point is the recognition they will receive as guests during
next Friday morning's session of the Salem Breakfast club at Nohl-
grens. While primarily a Breakfast club event, there are no
restrictions in the matter of attendance and the bars are down
to all men who would like to sit it. (Of course there's a little
matter of one buck for the breakfast.)
Gill Good Talker
Presence of Coach Slats Gill as guest speaker should assure
a capacity audience. Few people know it, but the Bearcat
mentor's first name is "Amory". He seldom hears it, and no
doubt if anyone should hail him with that designation Slats
might be a bit puzzled as to whom the call was intended. His
talents as a basketball coach have long been recognized on
a nation-wide basis. However, comparatively lew have
learned that Slats has the ability to deliver a first class talk
concerning the game. Not only is the Beaver court director
one of the best authorities concerning the sport, but he has
the ability to express his ideas in an understanding manner.
So, better make arrangements to get out of bed a bit earlier
and show up for the breakfast at 7:30 Friday morning.
Poor Guessers
Sports writers have been accused of being notoriously poor
predictors when the outcome of athletic events are concerned.
And this accusation apparently has some foundation in fact,
judging by the results of a check made by Ted Smits, sports
editor of the New York Daily News. Smits dug back through
the files since 1943 in connection with the pre-season predic
tions by A. P. writers concerning their choice for major league
pennant winners. During the five years involving 370 selections,
only three writers correctly tabbed both pennant winners. One
of the three did it twice. He is AP's Joe Reichler, who called the
turn on the Cubs and Tigers in 1945 and on the Indians and
Braves last year. Reichler's selections for the '949 pennant
races are the Boston Red Sox in the American loop and the
Brooklyn Dodgers in the National.

Bill Burgher, ex-University of Oregon catcher, who got his
initiation as a professional receiver with the Senators last
season, and is now with the parent Portland Beavers, was
used as a pinch hitter three times during the series with the
Seals and came up with as many hits. He finished the season
with Salem with a batting average of .287, his total of 50 hits
hits including five home runs, four triples and 20 two base
blows. Jim Gladd, the Beavers' elongated receiver, didn't
collect a hit in 11 trips to the plate . . . Luke Easter, the
colored boy who drives big cars and plays first ba
for the San Diego Padres, apparently will cause opposing
t pitchers plenty of trouble. The dark destroyer slammed out
11 hits in 22 times up during the first week of competition,
three of his blows being home runs. It may be that Luke has
has his weaknesses and if so, the pitchers may catch up with
the big fellow before the season is many weeks old.

pro, won the fourth annual Augusta National Open. Nelson
