There will be several home games
now before the Estacada club goes
on the road again. On June 24 two
games are scheduled to be played on
the local field, and on July Fourth,
there will also be a double header if
present plans work out.
The Armory o f Portland has gone
to camp and will be away for two
weeks. The manager o f their club in
formed Estacada several weeks ago
that they would be unable to fill their
date here on the 24th, so a game with
an independent team was scheduled.
At a meeting of the league officials
Monday night it was agreed to substi
tute a team for the Armory for two
games, and this accounts for the dou
ble bill on the 24th.
On account o f rain last Sunday the
Barracks game was postponed and
the Barracks offered to come to Es
tacada on the Fourth. A game has
been scheduled for that date with
Boring, so two games will probably
be played during the celebration.
There will be at least three new
men in Estacada’s lineup next Sun
day. Reed, a new receiver, will come
out from Portland. Al. Weinel, late
of O. A. C., who played the third
sack for the frosh the past season,
will be in the lineup, and Art Free
man, an infielder from Twin Falls of
the Utah-Idaho league, arrived in Es
tacada Wednesday and will probably
play second base Sunday, Tony Bron
son going to shortstop.
Bill Fischer, who was with the club
every game played this year except
one, and who went to Hoquiam in
the Timber league last week, writes
that he may return here next week.

Mrs. Vida Stubbs and son Edward

tending the state university.
