Mayor to Pitch First "Strike" of the Seals' Season
Rolph to Cut Plate
With Golden Sphere
Monster Parade Through Streets of City Will
Precede Opening of Game Next Tuesday
WILLIAM J. SLATTERY
While the Seals are busy putting on the finishing touches at Paso Robles
President Al Baur.i and the force of attaches at Recreation park are busy
getting thing- ready for the big opening next Tuesday afternoon. And it
gives every promise of be;: [ eatest opening day that San Francisco
ever has known—a day that will linger long in the memory of the thousands
of fans who will be there to shout and root for the home team.
They will put on the usual parade. It would not be a real opening day
without this. Players, magnates,"
managers and fans alike are to ride
in automobiles through the principal
streets of the city tor a couple ot
hours before the main event is staged
at Recreation park. As has already
■been announced, San Francisco and
Oakland will clash in this first strug-
The parade will be formed in front of
the ball park promptly at 12:80 o'clock.
Headed by a brass band, the 50 or more
automobiles will chug down Valencia
street to Market and make their way
to the ferry. Then they will chug back
again as far as Montgomery street, pro
ceed to Bush, then to Kearny, to Third,
to Mission and, after a whirl of a cou
ple of blocks there, will run up around
Sutter Post and Powell streets and
then shoot out to Twenty-ninth and
Mission streets and back to the ball
park. ' ,
All the fans who occupy the honored
Beats in the automobiles will be the
guests of the club. All fans who own
machines are invited to line up _ and
take part in the big noise making dem
onstration, and it is expected that when
all the machines are strung out the
procession will be several blocks long.
All they need is a fine day. The rest is
guaranteed. . ■■
Mayor Rolph has been assigned, the
job of -itching the first ball over the
plate, and although he has not done any
spring training as yet he looks to be in
fair condition to successfully pull this
stunt. The mayor is somewhat of a fan
himself and used to be some tosser, too,
when he was a lad.
Doc Frost, the renowned foul chaser,
has gilded up a ball which he will pre
sent to the mayor as the first one to be
tossed over the plate during the season
of 1912. Doc has been working away
at this wonderful sphere for several
days past, and he refuses to show it to
anybody until the mayor has feasted
his eyes upon it first.
The diamond is in grand shape, and if
the rain lays off it will present a sight
fit for the eye of the most critical fan
whoever walked through the gates of
Recreation park. The work on the
bleachers and the grandstand has been
about completed, so that 3,000 more per
sons can be comfortably taken care of.
This is going to help out a lot, espe
cially on Sunday afternoons.
The rivalry between Oakland and San
Francisco has been more marked dur
ing the last three years than ever be
fore. These sister cities. friendly
enough in a commercial and a social
way, are bitter enemies on the diamond.
This is proof enough that they will
make that old ball fly around in their
initial battle next Tuesday afternoon.
Several thousand transbay fans al
ready have made reservations in the
grandstand at Recreation park. Hun
dreds of them have formed themselves
into rooting parties and will sing and
shout and howl for their team. While
it looks as though San Francisco will
have it on the transbay city in the
number present, the Oaklanders are
very liable to run them a close race in
the game" of rooting. They always have
been adept at this particular branch of
the sportmuch more active than the
San - Franciscans. : -
The announcement that Cack Henley
and Claude Berry will form the bat
tery for the Seals in the opener will
be received joyously by the rooters of
this city. Henley is a veteran of the
league and always has been looked
upon as one' of the best minor league
twlrlers in the game, and there is little
doubt that he is strong enough for the
majors. Berry has long been his regu
lar catcher. They work together as
tew pitchers and catchers can work.
• Henley was one of the first men to
round into shape at Paso Robles. His
arm is stronger this spring than It was
at any other time since he started his
professional diamond career, and if he
does not get by with his first game it
■will be the - fault of the men behind
* President. Baum will pay his respects
to the Oakland players this week and
deliver an informal speech, such as he
has already delivered to the members
of the San Francisco, Portland. Los
Angeles and Vernon squads. Baum
wants every ball player in the league
to know just where he stands before
. opening day and he is going about his
"task In a businesslike manner.
Baum wlil assign his umpires in a
couple of days. Although no official
announcement has been made, it is
believed that Hildebrand and Mertes
will work here. Both are on the job
and have been doing regular training
■work for the last two weeks with an
eye to getting into good condition for
the strenuous season that awaits them.

battery fur the opening game next
Tuesday. Both players will leave with

Packey Offered $16,000
To Fight in N.Y.
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
CHICAGO, March 25.—Packey Mc-
Farland today received an offer of a
$16,000 purse to box either Matt Wells
or Ad Wolgast before the National
Athletic club of New York some time
next month. Packey said he would
sign in a minute if he were offered a
reasonable percentage of the purse.
The stockyards boxer would like noth
ing better than to meet. Wolgast over
the short route. The argument
against such a mill is the fact that
Wolgast may not have recovered suf
ficiently from his recent appendicitis
operation to take on such a formidable
opponent as McFarland.

[Special Diipatch to The Call]
SANTA MARIA. March 25.—With the
opening gun of the season but one
short week away and the camp cleared
of class B timber, Walter McCredie
today set about the task of sizing up
the efficiency of his nine iptchers, with
a view of wielding the pruning knife
on one or two when the race begins.
Rain spoiled the afternoon rehearsal,
but before lunch McCredie had Osborne,
the young Grants Pass find, on the
mound patching them up to the veter
ans, who combined business by practis
ing signals on the various hit and run,
squeeze and steal combinations. Mc-
Credie says Osborne shows promise of
becoming a good flinger. He is also
immensely pleased with the early sea
son showing of Henderson and Koest
ner. but apparently perturbed over the
slow conditioning of Speck Harkness.
"Steiger, GilUgan. Temple and Lam
line have all had stuff on the sphere in
their meager workouts, but I was sadly
disappointed with Speck last Sunday,"
declared McCredie. "He claims his arm
is all right, but he'll have to open up
his curve this week or I'll not use him
in the opening game."
. Henderson and Koestner are in grand
condition. Veasey was out in uniform
for the first time today ad began the
Captain Rodgers devoted considerable
time at the forenoon workout to ex
pounding the procedure of
"hook" sliding. The rest of the week
will be devoted almost entirely to
things mental. There will be no long
sieges of batting and protracted pro
grams of fielding.
McCredie is counting heavily on Pe
ters, his infield absentee, who will Join
the team late in May, when Stanford
university hands him a lawyer's degree.
Unless the Beaver chief decided to hold
two utility men, it looks as though
Nick Williams will get either Peters
or McDowell early in his season.

Pacific Coast Selection Commit'
tee Begins Distribution
Among Athletic Clubs
Entry blanks for the Olympic games
tryouts, to be held at Stanford track
on May 18, reached Chairman William
Humphrey of the Pacific coast selec
tion committee yesterday and will be
distributed to the various organizations
of the coast immediately.
The tryouts for the coast athletes
will be the first of three series of tests
to be held throughout the country, and
the athletic followers in all sections
will have their eyes glued on San Fran
cisco on the day in question. On June
8 the trials will take place at Evans
ton, 111., for the central and middle
western athletes, while the eastern
stars will shine on the same day at
the Harvard stadium track at Cam
The entry blank contains a lot of
valuable nformation for the entrants,
and is particularly specific in notifying
intending competitors that the "selec
tion committee is not bound to select
for the team every or any athlete who
wins or competes in the tryouts."
The various tryouts have been ar
ranged with the idea of giving the
American selection committee an op
portunity to form an opinion as to the
men who should be sent. The commit
tee will be greatly Influenced in the
final selection of the team by the per
formances at these three tryouts, but
they are nevertheless merely final
guides and the committee will feel Jus
tified, if it deems it necessary, in nam
ing any athlete who was unable to
compete in the tryouts if his ability
Each competitor must fill out the
blank personally and it is to be for
warded immediately with the necessary
entrance fee of two dollars to Chair
man W. Humphrey of the coast trials
committee. The right to reject any
entry is reserved by the Olympic com
mittee. It has been decided to give
prizes to the three placed men in the
trials, these prizes being in the form
of an Olympic diploma, corresponding
in every way with the regulation
Olympic diplomas which go to the ath
letes winning the events at Stockholm
A special page of the entrance blank
is devoted to explaining the meaning
of the word "nation" as understood by
the Olympic games international com
mittee. No athlete Is eligible to com
pete unless he is either a native born
citizen of this country or naturalized;
in the latter case he has to give the
date and place of naturalization. Full
measurements of the athlete is also
made Imperative. This is done to prop
erly fin out the entry blanks for Stock
holm, and from these measurements the
proper athletic uniforms will be or
dered for the men.
The list of events to be decided fa as
follows: One hundred meters, 200
meters, 400 meters, 800 meters, 1,300
meters. 5,000 meters, 10,000 meter 3, 110
meters hurdles, running high lump,
standing high Jump, running broad
Jump. Btanding broad Jump; hop, step
and Jump; pole vault; throwing Javelin
(held in middle), right and left hands;
throwing discus, right and left hands;
putting weight, right and left hands;
This is the exact program of events
that will be decided at Stockholm, with
the addition of a 10,000 meters walking
race. No trials will be held for this
event, and it is doubtful if any Ameri
can representative will be started in
the race. Kaiser of Chicago is the only
man who has made a specialty of walk
ing, but his times, while good, are not
up to those of the Canadian champion,
Goulding, or the Australian flyer, Kerr.
South Africa is also entering a walker
with a wonderful reputation.
All entries close with Chairman Wil
liam Humphrey on May 11 for the Pa
cific coast trials, while the central en
tries will close with Everett C. Brown
in Chicago on May 18. and the eastern
tryouts will finally close with James E.
Sullivan in New York on May 25.
Humphrey yesterday received a tele
gram from Secretary James E. Sulli
van stating that entry blanks for the
Pentathlon and Decathlon were mailed
yesterday and were due in San Fran
cisco next Friday. The original date
set for these trials was April 19 and 20,
but owing to the delay in sending out
entry blanks Sullivan has advised the
local committee to arrange a suitable
date at once. It is possible that the
tHals will be set a week or perhaps
two weeks later than the original days
The various entry blanks will be
forwarded to Los Angeles. Seattle and
Portland immediately. Any registered
amateur athlete is eligible to compete,
and intending competitors can obtain
blanks rrom Chairman William Hum
phrey, Olympic club.

physical machinery is disturbed. The general bodily weakness, a tired,
worn-out feeling, fickle 5 appetite, poor " digestion, a half i sick feeling and a
general run-down condition of the system, show that the blood is weak or
anaemic, and a blood purifying tonic is needed to build up the deranged i
system and enrich the blood. , The use of S. S. S. at this time may save :
you from a long spell of sickness, and it will certainly prepare you for the
long, hot Summer. Many people have put off using a tonic until the system
became so weakened ; and depleted it could not successfully throw off disease
germs, and have paid for the neglect with ;a ; spell of fever, malaria or some
other debilitating 5 sickness. S. S. S. is Nature's ideal tonic. It is a
composition sof ■ the extracts and juices of roots, herbs and barks which
science and experience have proven are best fitted for a tonic to the human
system. It contains nb minerals of any kind and is therefore perfectly safe
for persons of \ any * age.' S. S. S. tones up the stomach and digestion, rid 3 ';;
the systemf of that tired, worn-out 4 feeling, and imparts vigor and strength
to every part of the body. •It purifies] and enriches the blood, stimulates

The southerners come with a good
reputation and expect to give the Card
inal lads a hart tussle for the honors.
The Stanford team will hardly be at full
strength. In the sprints Captain Tom
Colenian and McKee, the two Stan
ford sprinters, will both be out of com
petition owing to slight injuries re
ceived in previous meets. Murray, the
miler, who is also a tennis star, may
not be able to take his place at the
starting line owing to his playing in
the tennis tournament now being
played with tne University of South
Nye and Williamson will be the
Pomona men for the 100 and 220 sprints
and they will probably race Campbell
as their most dangerous opponent. Nye
has a record of 10:1 in the century
while Williamson's best in the furlong
is 23. In the 440 yard dash the south
ern team has a whirlwind in Lawrence
