LOOKING FOR FOOTBALL
FIELD, HOI SPORT GOSSIP
THE North Central high school Is looking for a place to play their
football games this fall. At the present time the boys are
practicing on a vacant lot near the school, the same one used
last year, and from all indications it looks as though they will have
to play all their games there except the one with the South Central
high school, on October 9. Principal Hargreaves stated this morn
ing that moßt all the dates for Recreation park are filled and that
he does not know where the boys can play their games this fall.

Langley. near Seattle, will be to Washington what Colma is to
California, unless the plans of C. A. Baker go awry. Colma is where
the prize fights come off. Over in the Olympic club
(which took such good care of the Labor day crowd) expects to put
on some bouts in the near future. A 10 round affair between Eddie
Marino and "Chic" Huson is already rumored, and some local talent
has been promised an engagement.

Jack Gilllgan, the Vancouver pitcher who was sold to the St.
Louis Americans not long ago. is making good in the east. Yes
terday he won his first big game in the big league against Wash
ington. All Washington could do with ihe youngster was to secure
live hits and two runs. St. Louis scored three times.

Coach F. G. Kennedy, of the South Central high school football
team says that he expects to turn out a winning team this year in
spite of the fact that he has a bunch of practically green material
to work with. Coach Kennedy was up against the same proposition
in 1906, when with an entirely new bunch of men he turned out one
of the fastest teams that ever represented the Spokane high
school on the gridiron. Kennedy is very optimistic over the outlook
for the season, and does not feel at all disappointed in the outlook.
.Watch the dope, fans. Kenny always has something up his sleeve.

A rumor was afloat yesterday that the schools throughout the
city may not have a physical director for this season. This will
come as a keen disappointment to the large number of candidates
for the position.
TURKS SUITED THEMSELVEB
The Turks had everything their
own way at Portland yesterday,
securing 11 hits off Seaton during
the game and winning, C to 1. Sea

and this coupled with five costly
errors made by the Colts lost for
Portland. Although Seattle did not
p]ay good ball she was able to win.
The Colts seemed to be having a
day off and the Turks made a
nome run by bad Judgment in field

Stung again. After having held
the Champions down for seven in
nings, Harry Rush, slab artist for
the tribe, went to pieces in the
eighth Inning, giving the game to
Vancouver, 6 to 5. Rush started
off the eighth inning by walking
Smith and letting Sugden make
first base' by a bad throw of his
bunt. After Erickson had sacri
ficed he walked Davis, and here
he was taken out of the box and
Killllay substituted. Killilay had
pot warmed up and walked Cart
wright, forcing In the deciding run.
It was aheartbreaking contest,
and never before did such a bunch
of dejected looking fans leave
Recreation park after a game.
Rush, while effective at time,
could not deliver the goods when
the Indians were in a tight pinch.
He fielded his position poorly, and
it seems that if h chad exerted
himself a little more the tribe could
have won easily. On the other
hand, while Erickson was hit quite
freely he tightened up when the
bases were full, and this, coupled
with a few costly errors made by
the Indians, lost the game for Spo

RECORD OF 19 TEARS BROKEN
BY GREAT PITTSBURG CATCHER
Special Correspondence to The Press j
PITTSBURG, Sept. 17—George
Gibson, the great Pittsburg catch
er, has broken a world's record of
19 years standing by catching 112
successive games. Chief Zlmmer
set the successive games record in
IS9O. when he went behind the
bat for 111 contests.
Had Bresnaha.i, or Kling. or
Meyers, or Bergen, or Billy Sulli
van, or Nig Clarke, or any of the
other much advertised backstops
made a record to compare with
that of the Pirate's star performer,
the fact would have been heralded
far and wide long ago, but because
Gibson is unassuming and has no j
press agent, his wonderful per
formance was almost permitted to
slip by nnannunccd.
