Binglcs, bungles and bell ringing caused the fans at Chutes yes
terday to welcome the approach of the baseball season's close and
lose that lingering gleam of hope that the Oaks would make it in
teresting for the Beavers on the last lap of the race. Eighteen base
hits and eleven runs the visitors hammered from a trio of Ilogan's
delivery stars, and the lonely tally achieved by the hosts of the day!
was a gift pure and simple, allowing Hap Hogan himself, the favorite
of every player in the league, to trek around the sacks for the honor
of making a run.
It was duck weather, and the webfooters were in their element.
Portland 1 weather, Portland ginger and the sight of the pennant a
couple of games in the air, combined with the fervent prayers and'
exhortations of one Walter McCredie, produced a nonet of bingling
harmony. Every Beaver spanked out a safety save one. Sheehan,
and Ryan sent five chortling into the empty places, one of which
netted two .--neks, another a trip 10 the third corner. < )h, it was glor
ious—for McCredie- —and the victory cami'it be charged to anything
else than just a general "feeling good" on the part of the winners.
Soldier Carson lasted only long enough to lose the garue, a frac
tion of the first inning. Schafer went in after three runs had gone
over the plate, there was no one out and the aspect of lite fans was
of the character of a certain similar session at Vernon not long ago,
when the Angels played the supporting role. Schafer heaved well ;
up to the fourth, when the scoring quartet, Steen, Ryan, ( Usen and
Kruegcr. yot busy and made their balance three more to the good.
Hensling assumed the mound in the first of the sixth and im
mediately was classed with the other unfortunates when he ladled
out a walk and permitted a single that cost a couple more bell
tinkles. Hap decided the day was too far spent lo spoil Bracken«
ridge or Raleigh for tomorrow's contest and allowed "Whitey Ileus
ling to stay in the tire. Two more the Beavers sent over in the eighth
but the Vernon cutups had already taken the count and did not give
even a convulsive wiggle.

QUAIL SCARCE, BUT
Early Rains a Setback to the
the Finny Sport
Quail hunting this season has been
away behind that of former years, ow
ing to the absence of early storms.
Early rains are always welcomed by
the nimrods, for they know by this
sign that their favorite sport will be
good during the season. The early
rains drive the birds to the hills, where
1 they gather in flocks for warmth, and
the coveys sometimes number 50 to 100,
which Increases the game bag consid
erably. So far the birds have been
shy and hard to get to, as they seek
the undergrowth and refuse to fly out
in the open.
Duck hunting has been better for this
time of year than last season, and is
expected to be even better later on.
The Alamo river near Brawley, Cal., Is
a paradise for duck hunters, and those
who have hunted in that region this
season report literally millions of birds
there. Another excellent duck hunting
locality which is visited often by local
hunters is Elizabeth lake, in the Ante
lope valley. This region is the best In
Southern California, only the difficul
ties encountered In reaching there
proving a drawback. The trip must be
made by auto or wagon.
The slough near Hueneme Is another
favorite resort of the duck huijter's, and
excursions to that section are general
ly productive of results. Canvas backs,
teal, mallard, widgeon and sprig
abound near Elizabeth lake, but neither
of the other places afford such an as

The first half ended without score. Most
of the play had been In the ■ southerners'
territory. During the first period Baker
kicked a high spiral to the U. S. C. goal
lino which Plerco touched down for a stive.
On the return from the drop out Pierce
caught the ball and circled the end of the
California line for 40 yards, but was downed
After ten minutes' rest between halves the
southern players returned to the attack in
great style, carrying the ball to the Cali
fornia flve-yard mark, where a scrum was
formed. Allen, second ranker for the south
erners, tore through the -scrum for a try.
Casey failed to convert.
On the next kiekoff Butler, outside wing on
the second varsity, dropped a goal from the
:S5-yard mark, making the only scora of the
day for the blue and gold. Rough work on
the part of both packs .marked the reet of
the. contest, the southern forwards having
the better of the rushing throughout. Pierce
managed to score twice out of the loose, but
Casey failed with each kick.

FRANK CHANGE, CAPTAIN-MANAGER
CHICAGO NATIONALS, RETURNS HOME
Leader of Cubs. Defeated Champions, Has Evolved Plan for Work
ing Out Young Blood for Opening of Season—To Construct
Diamond at Glendora and Bring Eighteen Young
sters to Coast for Training During Winter.
Great Scoring Machine 1$ to Suffer
Many Changes Next Season
The wearing out of the once great Chicago Cubs baseball ma
chine has decided Manager Frank Chance, who arrived at his home
near Glendora Friday afternoon, upon a new course of action, which
ager has all he can do during those few weeks to get the old men in
shape, and has not the time to coach the green material along the
lines necessary to develop major league players. So I have decided
to bring out eighteen of the most promising youngsters under con
tract to the Chicago club and put them through a course of training
at my Glendora ranch. I will have a first-class diamond constructed
and will be able to give them practically all of my time, so that when
next season rolls around we may have a few phenoms to spring.
These men will come out about the first of the year, and from that
time on I expect to put them through daily practice until the spring
reporting time arrives."
This is an entirely new idea in baseball, but is, nevertheless, an
excellent one and should it succeed, as Chance expects, will be put
into force each year. In this way the Chicago youngsters will have
an advantage not possessed by any other big league recruits.
Chance arrived home quietly, and it was only by accident that
his presence was discovered. He expects to come in today to greet
his old friends, who are legion in this city.
Several important changes in the personnel of the team for next
year are contemplated by Chance, but it is a little early to announce
them yet, and the development of some of the youngsters out here
will also have bearing on the new plans.
OLDFIELD LOSES FIGHT
TO ENTER ATLANTIC MEET
ATLANTA, Ga., Nov. 2.—Barney
Oldfleld' today fought for three hours
a great contest for the right to enter
tomorrow's automobile meet here, and
All attorneys for the American Au
tomobile association held that instead
of an injunction to force the local rac
ing club to allow him to race in de
fiance of his disqualification by the
A. A. A., Oldfleld should have sought
a mandamus to Eccure reinstatement.
Oldflelds attorneys brought suit for
JLiO.OOO damages against the American
Automobile association and one for
$5000 against the Atlanta association.
The hearing was held in the Fulton
county superior court.
Oldfleld's attorneys claimed he had
been disqualified by the A. A. A. with
out a hearing and that a disqualifica
tion of his Benz racer amounted to
confiscation of property.
The opposition counsel replied that
Oldfield's risbarment was automatic,
under the rules he himself had signed.
Judge Bell, after three hours and
fifteen minutes' argument, ruled he
had no jurisdiction. •
The three days' racing begins on the
Atlanta speedway tomorrow morning
with eight events ranging from time
trials to a 100-mile race for a trophy
and cash prjze of $1000.
Because of the death of Al Living
stone last night, as the result of an
accident on the speedway yesterday
afternoon, the entire enry of the Na
tional Automobile company, compris
ing five racing cars in charge of John
Aitken and Howard Wilcox, was with
drawn from the meet.

When the victories of the Philadelphia
Athletes over the once invincible Cubs

Chance commenced to think, and finally
evolved a plan which he thinks will event

"during the few weeks of preliminary

strongest card in the local football

though it is admitted that the smallest

The Wesleyans have been running
up big scores against their opponents
