Scio lost to Harrisburg there April 10 in the second game of Linn county's class B league schedule. The Harrisburg defeat, by one points, is the only contest in which Scio girls have failed to out-bat and out-run their opponents. They have won from Hal-sey, Brownsville, Sweet Home and twice from Shedd. Scio gained 17 runs in a single inning of Rain hit suddenly in the middle of the Oregon Normal-Albany tennis match yesterday and caused a postponement of the event with only two matches partially completed.

In lining up the players, the situation runs like this Jim Ault, mainstay of the Oaks last year, is gone; so is Manager and Relief-Pitcher Chinky Coovert. Other vacancies will be in the infield with Joey Mack, second baseman, Nichols, third sacker, Gerran, first baseman, and Lapeyri, catcher, gone. In the outfield, Bill Bottler will be missing. But the club still maintains a wealth of home talent material, and the vacancies can be filled at a moment's notice. Of most importance is the securing of top-gradj chuckers. Plans have started to secure Hal Turpin, tHo. Yoncalla snake-charmer. Turpin is a right-hander, formerly with the Pacific Coast league for quite a span. Other possibilities in the field for chuckers are Herb Sahnow, another right-hander and a fast ball artist, now residing in Hills-boro, and Bill Lake, side-wheeler with Eugene last season, but now employed in Albany. The outfield will bow to none, boasting a trio of fleet, hard-hitters. The trio is Bruce Dowling, Dave Stritmater and Tuffy El-lingsen. They will receive support from two high school students Tubby Manning and Bob Arthur. The infield, too, has plenty of candidates on hand with Manager Shoots, Earl Lansing, Walt Heck'-er, Jimmy Jenks, Bill Wilkinson, Chuck Belmer, Jimmy Robertson and a newcomer from Hood Kiver, Anderson. The open first base position can be filled by Shoots, and the others can undoubtedly fill the rest of the inner patches. If necessary, Sutherlin, Oregon State shortsop, may be secured. At catcher- the Oaks will have a newcomer now living here in Chuck Belmer. Bill Wilkinson can also take his turn at receiving, and Jimmy Robertson, another SUGAI THROWS McSHAIN Salem, Ore., April 29.

Western clubs fared badly in the season's first intersectional play yesterday, dropping three out of four samcs to eastern clubs in the American league and losing the only two National league games played, to invaders from the east. The reception accorded the Detroit Tigers by the Washington Senators was the only indication that there might be a trace of manners left among the eastern teams of the junior circut. The Senators bowed down to their Detroit guests 8 to 1. Not a quibble was heard as the young righthander, Joe Sullivan, was presented his first victory of the season. But the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox and Philadelphia Athletics were not cordial at all. They made the visiting Cleveland Indians, Chicago White Sox and St. Louis Browns feci extremely ill at case. . The Yankees let the Indians down as easily as possible by scoring only two runs all afternoon. Red Ruffing kept the Cleveland boys swinging futilely, not letting them convert a one of their four hits into a run. The defeat dropped the Indians into a virtual tie with Boston for first place. The Red Sox smothered Chicago 11 to 8 under a barrage of 16 base hits including a single, a double and a home run by Jimmy Foxx. Connie Mack's Athletics pushed the Browns even further into the cellar. His rookie pitcher, Harley Kelley let the Browns down with only six hits as he pitched the A's to a 4 to 2 victory. In the national, Cincinnati lost to the last place Boston Bees, 5 to 2, and the Pittsburgh Pirates succumbed to the Phils, 9 to 7.
