,tne expenses incurred ana recover
the money from the soitoau
league by way of admissions.
The overhead for lights and
grounds-keeping will run about $40
a night, so to raise the money a
scale of admissions will be charged
as lonows:
Aduiu- cent.
Children 10 cent.
Whole fanillle AS cents.
Bringing softball out of the twi
light and under the lights will be
a tremendous shot in the arm to
the speedy summer sport. Last year
ana for about a month this year the
league has been operating more or
less on a shoestring by playing two
nights a week, starting at 6:30. at
Recreation field and the KUHS
practice field.
Starting next week the games will
be scheduled for Monday. Wednes
day and Friday nights at 7:30. two
i games each night. The league
schedule Is being revamped to lit
the new arrangement.
Frank Drew, manager of the
league, said that some of the 10
teams in the loop want to play
more games and that having the
" nabi. would allow them
to do so. Also the recently-picked
15-man all-star city team will have
a chance to schedule some out-of-town
competition for special ex
hibitions. Modoc field is large enough to
permit two games to be played
simultaneously if need be.
The present plan is to put
movable bark board at the south
end of the field on the curve of
the track. The diamond will have
to be laid out with a fairly short
right field, but wide open center
and left fields.
By having a movable backboard
the diamond can be shifted back
and forth each night so the base
paths won't always be in the same
place on the grass. One of the
biggest worries will be the protec
tion of the Modoc fieid turf, which
is probably the best on an; football
gridiron in Oregon.
Meanwhile, two more twilight tilts
are on tap for the softball league.
Tonight at Recreation field Moose
lodge plays the Gun Store, and at
the high school the Eagles and
Elks are slated to tangle.

Los Angeles and San Francisco,
slugging each other into a first place
tie in the Pacific Coast league, may
not have time to look behind them
today but they ought to Oakland is
right there I
When this week's diminution
began yesterday the Angels were a
game in front of the Seals and the
Oaks were in third place, two games
out. When the firing ended last
night Casey Stengel's Oaklanders
were only one game behind the even
Stephen leaders.
And the way the Oaks have been
hitting the ball far and wide they
might bust right out of the top of
the standings column before the
week is out.
The Seals snatched away Los An
geles' lead. 7-5. by means of a six
run eighth inning.
Oakland took the twinkle out of
the Hollywood Stars. 9-1, to get in
position to breathe hotly down the
leaders' necks. There was a six-run
eighth inning in this game too. con
sisting of five Oakland hits includ
ing Vlnce DIMagglo's homer with
two on base, the Hollywood run also
came In the eighth, on Carl Cox's
double and Jim Delslng's single.
Portland's Roy Ilrlser pitched
himself a four-hit, 8-0 shutout of
Seattle, with left-handed Beaver
batters helping their lefty hurler
with three home runs. The south
paw hitters, in fact, drove In all
the runs.
A ninth inning triple by Ed Fitz
gerald scored the tying and winning
runs as Sacramento trimmed San
Diego. 5-4.

Louis Will
Quit In' 48
Joe Louis says that 1948 will be his
last year of boxing.
The heavyweight champion made
the statement yesterday during a
discussion of why he has turned
down some fight offers recently.
He said there isn't a competitor
anywhere right now who will draw
a big time gate, but he believes an
able fighter will develop by 1948 to
challenge his title.
"But whether there Is or not." he
added, "I'm not going beyond 1948.
That's my last year of boxing."
The champ said he thinks he'll
stick to fighting exhibitions for a
while until the real thing In the
way of money comes along, since
he has to spend as much as $62,000
in training for a title bout
