Local Baseball Exhibition as Raw as the Weather
Copyright, 1912. by B. U Goldberg.
Stirring Victory Over Beavers
Is Every Bit as Exciting as
a Funeral
The Beavers and the Seals opened up
the series yesterday at Recreation park,
and it is the last meeting of these two
teams in a series this season. The
visitors were subjected to rather harsh
treatment by the local swatters, who
romped away with the game without
serious effort At the conclusion of the
nine frames the Reidyltes had 8, while
the best the McCredieites could show
was 2.
The afternoon was a chilly one and
the contest was about as raw as the
weather. The game was fully as in
teresting as a funeral, and the handful
of fans that gathered at the Valencia
street lot seemed to be glad when the
show was over. Tie players appeared
to be of the same frame of mind.
McCredie sent out Dave Gregg,
brother of the great southpaw Yean,
who is one of the Cleveland Naps.
There was nothing about Dave's work
yesterday in common with that of his
brother. Outside of his striking out
nine of the Seals there -was not much
else that could be said of his flinging
from a complimentary standpoint.
Ronner did the twirling for the Seals,
and the big right hanaer showed a
nice assortment of benders. It was not
until the last two innings that the
Reavers were able to connect safely
with his delivery to any extent. The
local Leaver probably eased up, as he
had the game well in hand.
Kid Mohler. the ancient second base
man of the Seals, apparently has ex
perienced a new lease of life as a result
of his vacation in the bushes, where
- outiag for new talent. The
_:iant was very much in the show
- afternoon. He swiped the
ball __.__*• on three occasions and
fielded In sensational form.
The first score was made by the
Seals in the third. ATter McArdle
struck out, Schmidt was given a pass.
Ronner singled to Rodgers and Schmidt
reached third when Raker dropped
Norton's throw.
The Beavers made a run in the sev
enth. Chadbourne walked, but was
forced at second by Doane. An error
by Schmidt and a single by Rodgers
scored Doane.
Schmidt doubled in the seventh and
MundortT wai safe on Norton's boot,
which allowed Schmidt to score. Mc
lntyre put the hall over the right field:
Three singles scored Yohe in the
eighth. Rodgers singled in the ninth
and stole. Fisher's single to center
scored him. Summary:

Handy Gus Puts Two Runs
Over and the Rest Is
[Special Dispatch to The Call]
SACRAMENTO. Oct. B.—For half an
inning today the Senators had visions
of slipping a defeat over on the near
champions, but Gus Hetling snuffed out
their pipes in the fifth with a scream
ing three sacker between center and
left, scoring two runners and busting
up a tie score. Malarkey then held the
Van Eurenites safe and Oakland
emerged a 5 to 2 winner.
Alberts was bumped in two innings.
In the second Delmas, Cook and Tiede
mann played tattoo on his delivery by
banging out three singles. On Tiede
mann's bingle the other two Oaks
crossed the rubber.
The Senators evened up the game in
the fourth with two down. Alberts got
; off wrong in the fifth by passing Ab
bott. Coy contributed a single, and
then came Hetling's long smash to left
for three bases. Score:

j [Special Dispatch to The Call]
BERKELEY, Oct. B.—The long ex
pected cut in the varsity football squad
at the University of California has
come, and as a result there will be but
52 candidates reporting for practice
from now on. To this number will be
added the names of several freshmen
after Saturday's game with the Uni
versity of Southern California, as the
baby team has been showing up un
usually well.
The playing of the varsity team is
causing a great deal of uneasiness
among the supporters of the blue and
gold, and some radical changes are
expected as a result. The men are not
showing the speed and tight expected
from a varsity team at this stage of
the season, and heroic corrective meas
j ures undoubtedly will be taken by
1 Coaches Schaeffer and Cerf. The sec
j ond half of the game with Nevada,
when the varsity was held practically
I scoreless by a much lighter team, has
opened the eyes of the students to the
fact that the blue and gold is going
to have a hard row to hoe if they win
this year's contest with the cardinal.
The names of the men who are still
on the squad are as follows:
I J. L, McKitn, L. M. Morris, L. W. Meyer, Ros

The finishing touches are being
placed on the freshman team in prepa
ration of the big game of the baby sea
son—the final contest this Saturday on
California field against the University
of Southern California. Reports from
the south indicate that the freshmen
will be given the tussle of their lives.
Last year the southern team was de
feated by the freshies by a score of 15
to 0, but that was the first year the vis
itors had played the game. This year,
with the added experience of a year and
the whole university to draw from. It is
reasonable to expect that the tables
will come very near to being turned.
Two weeks ago the southerners de
feated Los Angeles high school by a
score of 16 to 0.
The baby team this year has turned
out to be the best that has been de
veloped since 1908. In their back field
work especially they have shown great
promise. Fish and Saunders of the
forwards have been playing on the
varsity squad, and Lane, Gianelli,
Togni, Montgomery and Graff have also
been placed on the big squad. In last
Saturday's game against Nevada Graff
and Gianelli played the five-eighths po
sitions, and their work was of a high

Fans Hold Butchertown Scrap
per at Evens for Fight
With Red Watson
Even money and take your choice is
the opening betting on the result of the |
Willie Hoppe-**Red" Watson bout, i
which will be staged at Dreamland
Friday night. Commissioner Tom Cor
bett said yesterday that a number of
Hoppe admirers had left commissions
with him to be placed on the Butcher
town boy if Watson went favorite. It
appears that there is too much Hoppe
money in sight for him to be the out
sider in the betting, and they look for
the wagering to be about even.
Seldom has a fighter with so little
experience as Hoppe made such a good
Impression upon fight fans as is the
case with the Butchertown scrapper.
There are many good judges who are
actually figuring Hoppe as the coming
lightweight champion.
It is a big step from the four round
game into the professional field, but
there are shrewd judges of fighters who
believe that Hoppe is ripe enough to
send against the best of them. He has
a natural style which is effective. He
can not be taught much in the line of
cleverness, as he has his own way of
fighting, which he has mastered pretty
The fans should get an excellent line
on the fighting qualifications of Hoppe,
as he is meeting an experienced boxer
in Watson. The latter is from Los An
geles, where he boxed Joe Rivers and
a number of other crood boys of that
section. The red haired scrapper knows
the game thoroughly,- and he is a
mighty good boy when he shows his
best form.
The work of the Brooklyn middle
weight, Young Herman, will be watched
with Interest by the fans, as the vis
itor comes here with a good record and
his personal appearance indicates that
he is every inch a fighter.
Accounts of Herman's fights with
Sailor Burke and Freddy Hicks, whom
he defeated, give the Brooklyn man a
big boost. Herman is stacking up
against a mighty shifty performer in
Jack Herrick, the Chicago middle
weight. The latter has put up several
good fights in this section and he is
well thought of by the followers of
Jimmy Fox and Marty- Kane, the
fighting bellboy, figure to put up a pret
ty bout. Fox is one of the cleverest
lads in the country at 122 pounds, and
it is lack of stamina that keeps him
out of the championship class. He is a
struck at the four round game. Kane
Is a whirlwind mixer and should keep
Fox hustling all the time.
Promoter Al Young of the Haw
thorne club has arranged six other
bouts for the fans. *He has succeeded
In matching the best boys performing
In the four round game.

"Black Wonder* Shatters Lou
Dillon's Mark by Trotting
a Mile In 1:58
LEXINGTON. Oct. B.—The "black won
der," Uhlan, was out for an effort to
lower the track record for trotting,
I:s9 h_. The track was In excellent con
dition, and the son of Bingen made the
circuit in 1:58 flat. This breaks the
world's record for a trotter, which here
tofore was held by Lou Dillon. Uhlan
was driven by his trainer, Charles Tan
Uhlan was in the finest of form, and
those who had their stop watches on the
horse and saw him reel off the first
quarter in an even half minute thought
the effort would fail, despite the even
stride of the animal.
When he reached the half in :59 flat
they-took up hope and began to cheer.
The three-quarters was clicked off in
1:28, and, showing no signs of tiring,
the "black wonder" came down the
stretch with an unfaltering stride and
finished the mile in 1:58. and the world's
record was his.
The gates of the Kentucky Trotting
Horse Breeders' association were thrown
open here today for the opening of the

grueling heats. In the last heat of this
race, in which Baldy McGregor took the
lead from Rythmel and aMnpco for the
first tiiree-quarters, Manrico was held
well In the rear of the leader, and it
was thought he would not have a chance
to get up In time to win the heat and
ra*ce. When the contestants turned into
the stretch Manrico moved up with a
rush, and after a mile brush won the
heat and race by beating Baldy Mc-
Gregor to the wire. The time in this
heat was 2:07 "4, which is a new world's
mark for the sixth heat of a race. This
was also the fastest six heats ever trot

pealed to Professor Ehrlich to give
