Los Angeles 4, San Francisco 3
Two extra inning games out of three
contests is enough to please any old
fan who ever flocked through the
Chutes turnstiles, and when they nre
,both won by the locals there Is double
cause for rejoicing. Yesterday Hen
Berry's Angels trimmed the Seals
again, but it was not until after Ber
nard had rapped out a hit In the
eleventh which scored the winning run
that the issue was settled.
Just how the Seals figured to be such
awful bad actors is hard to see. In
all three of their games here the lo
cals have outplayed them In every de
partment, and nothing like pennant
winning class has been shown. It
looks as though Portland is the team
to reckon with, for the Beavers were
very much to the good over what Snn
Francisco has been handing out this
At that the Angels had their work
cut out for them yesterday, and only
Bernard's clever stick work saved the
day. Bernle tied the score In the sev
enth, had a chance to drive In the
Winning run a couple of rounds later
and finally connected with the soup in
the elventh. Koestner had one bad
inning, in which five hits accounted for
three runs, but on the whole he was
steady and right there with the choice
benders when they were called for.
Skillman was on the mound for Moh
ler and pitched good enough hall to
win from the locals. His teammates
failed to do the proper thing, however,
and a few bungled plays let the An
gels have things their own way. This
was particularly true in the seventh In
ning, when the locals tied the score
because of some punk fielding.
Looks Bad in First
Things looked kind of bad for Koest
ner in the first Inning, for Piper
opened hostilities with a single to
right. Curtis tried to advance him on
a sacrifice, hut Smith heaved the
leather down to Bernard in time to
force him at second. Bernie whipped it
over to Dillon and O'Connell called it
a double play, the decisions at both
bases being close. Williams walked
and Melcholr singled to left, but Zel
der's hit to Delmas stopped the fun
when the ball was sent to second
ahead of Melcholr.
Piper raised a howl about O'Connell'
decision In the third Inning calling him
out at first, and for keeping up the
racket he was soaked a ten-spot. In
the following act the Seals got their
fighting clothes on and scored three
tallies before resting time.
With Melcholr out, Zeider rapped a
short fly over third base. Wheeler
made a hard try for it, but the ball
got by him and was scored as a three
sacker. Mohler was out of the way
when McArdle singled to left and
scored Zeider. La Londe's hit kept
two stations working, and when Skill
man rapped out a single it was a case
of score for McArdle and La Londo.
Piper got a single to right, but was
unable to advance when Curtis forced
him at second.
The Angels scored a run In the other
half of the act and things began to
look a little better to the loyal bleach
erltes. Dillon was out via Mohler and
Williams, and Brashear was given a
lease on life because of the wide ones.
He stole second, and on Smith's out
reached third. Wheeler also drew
transportation, and Delmas' hit
through short scored Brashear, the
batter and Wheeler dying on the bags
when Easterly fouled to Williams.
Angels Tie Score
In the seventh act the Angels tied
the score. Wheeler led off by fouling
out, and Delmas bumped the pill for
two cushions, He reached third on
Easterly's out and stuck there, while
Koestner walked and stole second.
Mohler Juggled Bernard's grounder and
Del and Koestner scored, the latter
being safe because of Mohler's poor
toss to La Londe. In the excitement
Bernie went tee second, but was out
when he tried to beat his way to the
next stop. , ..
Frisco had a chance to score In the
eighth, and failed after a man had
leached third. The Angels repeated
the performance In the following round,
and then came th.- big show in the
eleventh. Wheeler and Delmas were
both out before Easterly connected
with a double, and when Koestner reg
istered an infield single the Angel
roosted on third, It was up to Ber
nard and ho responded with a safe
hit tc center that scored the neces
sary run. The score-:

KYLE RUNS OUT
SAN DIEGAN ADMITS LOCAL
RECORD FOR 440 IS BROKEN AT
Much Touted Southerner Falls to
Respond When Name Is Called
at Blmlnl Baths— Finals
The second evening of the Olympic
tryouts brought forth some grand per
formances by Southern California
swimmers, which show that they are
in a class not far below the best. The
two races on the card were both made
In remarkably fast time and were well
contested. '' 77 '
One Southern California record, for
the 440, was smashed when Ben "Wat
lington trimmed his former record by
five seconds. Ben Is training hard and
is constantly improving and should
have no difficulty in holding his own
against the fast ones about San Fran
cisco. His new record of 6:51 will
probably stand for years to come, un
less he himself betters it, for neither
in the north or here has this record
boon approached by any swimmer in
the last" two years.
Watlington has great endurance and
the necessary grit. This was notice
able in last night's race, for he prac
tically made his good time without
any competition, the second man being
never nearer than thirty yards. It is
safe to say that if Ben keeps up his
fine work he will find his berth on
the trip to London.
The first race, fifty yards, for boys
under 16, was won by E. Kyle in the
fast time of 32 seconds. Kyle got a
good start and was off with a lead of
four feet, which he steadily increased
till he finished, four yards ahead of
George Crary. Charles Holborow was
Although the second was an excel
lent race, it was a disappointment to
many who had come to see Kyle com
pete with Watlington. Kyle did not
enter, his excuse being that he thought
he could not win and that he had
quit racing. Earl Kyle competed in
this race and was only able to take
third place, Frank Holborow finishing
The total score of the swimmers up
to date is: Frank Holborow, 18; W.
Kyle, 6; E. Kyle, 4; Gordon Crary, 1;
Crum, 1: Ben Watlington, 5.
Tonight will be the last of the try
outs and will decide for those who
will be sent north.
MEMSIC AND ENGLISH
TO FURNISH MAY GO
BOYS WILL MEET AT EVEN
Memsic Too Heavy for Lightweight
Ranks and May Do Better by
Advancing Into Other
Fans of the fistic game are turning
their attention toward the coming ten
round go between George Memsic and
Clarence English. These boys have
been boxing others at the lightweight
limit, but having grown too heavy for
this class they have decided to meet
at catch-weights, thus assuring the
best work they can do.
Memsic admittedly was at too light
a figure when he met Brock, and it Is
probable that with the chance to get
in the ring at his natural weight he
will be able to make a much better
showing than he has of late. Memsic
weighed 144 before he went into train
ing for the match with English and he
will not go much under the 140 mark
In his preparation. He is working at
the East Side club with the Turk as
his aid. He has not selected a boxing
partner as yet, but will look over the
field and make a choice today.
English is already well advanced
with his training at Watts, where he
will have the assistance of Howard
Baker and Kid Dalton in the ring. A
tent has been pitched on a ranch at
the suburb, and English has built a
ring and furnished the place with all
the modern equipment for a training
spot. Dalton was to have started work
yesterday but failed to show up. He
has promised to appear as sparring
There is some curiosity to see Eng
lish in the ring in Los Angeles, and
Manager McCarey has given him and
Memsic Tuesday evening, May 5, to
settle their relative merits at the
fighting game. Two good preliminaries
will be introduced before the main
event and the old prices of one, two
and three cases will prevail at the
initial contests for the month of May
at the Cabin.
FOUR GAMES SCHEDULED
IN HIGH SCHOOL LEAGUE
Four games are scheduled to be
played in the Los Angeles county high
school league this afternoon. There
were no contests last Saturday and the

time were postponed until today. The
South Pasadena high team will meet
Poly on the Poly diamond, and the
Santa Monica nine will be seen In
action against the Harvard bunch on
their own lot. There will be two games
at Pasadena. The local high school

LONG BEACH COURSE
IS ORMOND'S RIVAL
POOR HANDLING MAKES RACES
Judges Fail to Take Time on Some
of the Events and Officials
Do Not Even Know
The far-famed Ormond Beach auto
mobile race course has a rival.
Long Beach with Its stretch of sandy
beach is the contestant for favor.
Yesterday morning an attempt was
made to hold several automobile races
on the beach, and while the course was
good and the machines fast the man
agement was such that the contests
had not the slightest semblance of
races. . -'.
Two and a half miles down the beach
from the pavilion was the starting
point, and with the aid of field glasses
the officials tried to learn when the
cars were sent away. Difference of
opinion, however, and at times lack
of knowledge of the start until the cars
were well toward the end of the course
prevented the Judges getting time on
A small crowd assembled and stood
patiently for an hour or more for the
races to begin, while the Long Beach
police tried to keep the long line of
spectators above the high-tide mark,
with Indifferent success.
When the races finally started there
was no certainty that it was a race
and when the Durocar rolled across
the line at a fast clip the crowd
thought it was only a tryout, as the
other cars were so far behind. C.
McKeague drove the Durocar, but the
time was not taken by the judges. D.
H. Harthorne, In a Dolson, finished
second and a Reo driven by Freeman
M McKenzle took third.
In the second event a Tourist fin
ished in 8:42%. driven by F. M. Varney.
There seemed to be no other contestant
who crossed the line.
The third event was a walk away for
the Oldsmobile touring car driven by
Harry Harrison; the Tourist driven by
G. F. Grant was far behind. The big
red Mercedes 70-horsepower touring
car belonging to George Bentel and en
tered by the Continental Tire company
made a lonesome run in the fourth.
The Gearless seems to be pursued by
a hoodoo In Southern California and
was out of running In the first half
mile. , _',
Haynes Makes Good Time
The Haynes roadster took the honors
in the fifth, and under the guidance of
George Barnes made excellent time,
probably the best of the day. The time
was taken as 3:"4% for the two and a
half miles, which would be a little less
than fifty miles per hour. As the
Haynes ought to do better than that it
seems probable the timers were off
with the stop watches.
The last event was for motorcycles,
and was won by Allen Murphy on an
Indian. Clarence Clayton on an Indian
took second place and Frank Klecker
on a Racycle third.
The officials in charge of the races
were J. E. Counts, Dr. L. A. Perce and
Dr. A. F. Hamilton as Judges and
Andy Craig, W. F. Shields and E. S.
Bundy as starters. It was evident
from the manner in which the affair
was conducted and the lack of
knowledge of the officials about the
contestants and all other features of the
contests that it was the maiden at
tempt of the men In charge.
The course would make an Ideal
place for automobile races, but another
such fizzle as yesterday will discourage
entrants, and spectators as well.

of the twenty-two which started would
have been able to complete the Jour

crossed the finish line, to avoid any
possible accident to the spectators who
overflowed the course.
The time made by the racers was
comparatively slow, and to this fact

WASHINGTON, April 24.— con
flagration at Chelsea, Mass., which
rendered 10,000 persons homeless and
resulted In a property loss of several
million dollars, following as it did
closely upon the heels of the Boyer
town, Pa., and Colltnwood, 0., holo
causts with their terrible loss of life,
has added much significance to the fire
tests of building materials that have
been conducted recently by the United
States geological survey In behalf of
the government. .'.,"..':.'s
The federal government, owner of
buildings valued at more than half n
billion dollars and spending $20,000,000
every year for new structures through
out the country, conducted these tests
in order that its architects may have
definite information concerning the flre
resistlngquallties of the different ma
terials of construction, to the end that
the government's buildings may bo
properly safeguarded from fire within
The government engineers have long
contended that with present methods
of construction a conflagration, result
ing In the destruction of millions of dol
lars worth of property and the sacrifice
of human life, Is possible in every city
of any size in the country. Their posi
tion has been proved in a tragic man
ner by the Baltimore fire, the fire fol
lowing the earthquake In San Fran
cisco and that of Chelsea Just the other
Great Fires Unnecessary
It is the belief of the engineers that
these great fires are unnecessary and
can be prevented by the erection of
proper fireproof buildings. The govern
ment does not Insure its buildings
against loss by fire, but bends Its ener
gies toward making the structures fire
proof. A small fraction of what would
be- paid to insurance companies In
premiums is being spent in finding out
the. materials that are best adapted to
resist fire. .- . Jv
The first of a series of elaborate tets
have just been completed by the struc
tural materials laboratories ,of the geo
logical survey, under the direction of
Richard L. Humphrey, engineer In
charge. The tests were conducted at
the fire underwriters' laboratories In
Chicago and were made possible by the
co-operation of the national board of
fire underwriters and the National Fire
Protection association. Thirty panels
of various building materials. Including
concrete building blocks, common,
hydraulic pressed and sand lime brick;
concrete of gravel, cinder, limestone and
granite; glazed building and partition
terra cotta tile; sandstone, granite and
marble building stone were tested.
The materials were subjected to the
direct application of heat for two hours
and were then immediately quenched
with water. An effort was made to ob
tain a maximum temperature of 1.00
degree Fahrenheit within half an hour
after starting the tests and to main
tain this temperature as nearly as pos
sible constant through the succeeding
half hours. -
From a Furnace
The building materials were placed
in a sliding panel, which, when ar
ranged for the fire tests, formed one
«ide of the furnace. In the furnace gas
flames were forced by a blast of air
asalnst one side of the .panel.,« After
two hours the panel was brought from
the furnace and the water turned on
from a hose with a pressure of fifty
pounds to the square inch.
The conditions under which these
tests were made were unusually severe,
and as none of the materials passed
perfectly It proved a good test for com
parative purposes. The temperatures
used would hardly be reached in an
ordinary fire, but might be In a con
flagration. , ,
While these tests are not conclusive,
being but the beginning of a general
line of Investigations, said Director
Smith of the geological survey, they
bring out a number of important facts.
The brick panels probably withstood
the tests better than any other ma
terials. There were two lots of com
mon brick tested—one was an unused,
were split, while 60 to 70 per cent of
glne foundation for some years. The
the old bricks were not damaged.
The bricks at the back of the panel
were entirely unaffected. The hydraulic
pressed brick stood the test better
than any other material. No damage
was apparent whatever after the firing
and before the water was applied, and
although a number of the bricks
cracked, 70 per cent of them were
found to be sound after quenching.
There was apparently little differ
ence in the strength of the bricks be
fore and after firing. The natural
building stones behaved the worst of
all the material tested. The almost
complete destruction of these stones
precludes any comparison between
them. ' The sandstone panel, entirely
collapsed soon after the test was
Little Difference In Strength
The testing engineers report that It
was difficult to determine whether the
concrete made of limestone, granite,
gravel or cinders sustained the least
damage. Their surfaces were all rather
test was unfair to cinder concrete, as
containing a large percentage of un

The granite concrete probably behaved
the best. The damage in no case ex
tended very far Into the concrete,' prob
ably not more than one and one-half
Inches. The evidence shows that even
at this depth the temperature was com
paratively low. The rapid heating of
the face of the concrete, while the
back remained cool, caused the con
crete to crack vertically for some dis
tance back from the face. The crack
ing of the concrete can be avoided, lt
Is believed, by using metal I reinforce
ment, which > would distribute the ef
fect of the expansion. The tests also
brought out most clearly the low rate
at which the heat travels through
concrete. This la one of the desirable

Tags Not Damaged
Linen tngs which were placed In tho
hollow concrete blocks when they were
molded were found to be undamaged
after the fire test. In many instances
the hollow blocks snllt after being sub
jected to the fire and water test.' It
was noticeable that the richer the mor
tars used In these blocks, the less they
were affected by the test. The mor
tars mixed with tho greatest percent
age of water gave the best results. The
wetter, richer mixtures in these tests
stood out apparently undamaged in
contrast! with the dnmaged faces of
the leaner, dryer blocks.- It is appar
ent that one of the causes of weak
ness In the hollow cement building
blocks Is in the weakness of the con
crete, due to a too dry and thin mix
ture, which,' coupled with the thin
ness of the wehs —the thin nieces con
necting the walls of the blocks to give
strength—provides insufficient strength
to resist' the rapid expansion of the
face of the blocks, under test. By
making the webs thicker they can he
