It is hardly possible that an eight game series will be played this year, but if It -went to seven the chances are that the 1912 record would be smashed. The average at-' tendance for each of those eight games was a bit beyond 30,000, The capacity average attendance for seven games f the Red Kox and Dodgers played It this year would be around 37,500 or close to 260.000 for seven fuli games. me piays spin mis season prom- lses to be bigger than it has been for some years, assuming that the Red , Sox and Dodgers will be the figures In i It.

For two years now baseball fans have been having a llarious laugh at the expense of Con nie Mack, manager of the Athletics. But now the laugh is being turned to admiration, for the old fox's methods of building baseball clubs are begin ning to bear fruit. When Mack broke up his wonderful team at the close of the 1914 season, after the Braves had given them a beating In the world's series. Mack predicted that he would have a new baseball club ready to fight for ball games of 1917. He gave himself two seasons in which to rebuild the grand machine he had wrecked. And the elongated manager's claims are beginning to be realized. Already he has assembled the main players who w411 make up the 117 team with which he hopes to pull out of the cellar. Three Purchases Are Made. Three men have been purchased to help out the green players who have been learning the game under Mack's guidance. Ping Bodie, once with the White Sox, but more recently with the San Francisco Pacific Coast league club, is the most prominent of the trio. Outfielder Thrasher of the South Atlantic league, is another, and Mack has picked up a third baseman named Ray Bates, also from the coast. The latter Is said to be the best third baseman in the minora. Mack has great confidence in the ability of his two new outfielders. He declares Bodie was not properly handled in Chicago. He charges Jimmy Callahan with riding the rence- buster instead t helping him along it critical moments. Hlaown methods, he believes, will make a valuable asset of Bodied In the infield Mack has at least one man who is rated high. And if Stuffy Mclnnis decides to retire or is turned over to some other club, Mack still has a first baseman in Poindexter, a youth who is doing well in learning points of the game. Otis Lawry is a brilliant collegian who is expected to develop class as a second baseman. Lawton Witt, who has been holding down tfte shortstop job for Mack most of the season, is regarded as a coming ntar by a big league manager. This youth has played with dazzling bril liance and has hit remarkably well for a youngster. It is certain that he, at least, will fit into the place Mack has picked for him. Bates, regarded by Clark Griffith as he season's find, will be at third base, Noyee Should Kelp Pitching. A pitching staff having for its head liners two hurlers like Bush and Myers is bound to be strong. Besides these two there are Nabors and Shee-han, who have been tried and found to posses class. Jtng Johnson, the sen rational young right-hander from L'rslnus college, already has won his spurs in fast company. Win Noyes was drafted from Portland. Or. Wallie Schang probably will be sent tack to his old station behind the bat next season and will have two excel lent understudies In Haley and Myers, Mack insists his famous machine, with which he romped through the American league a few years ago, did not show the promise his present ma terial did when he first assembled It. And it "is doubtful if the whole present outfit has cost Mack $20,000. ON THE ALLEYS The City Bowling league, an eight team organiatlon, will open an 84- game schedule next Tuesday night Four of the teams will bowl on the Oregon alleys and four on the Port land alleys. The teams that compose the league and the captains are: Yeomen, W. A Jones; St Nicholas. W. Rowe; Wells Kealty company, Krnest Wells; Chans lor & Lyon, A. Perlee; Had ley & Sil ver, W. Hauser; Portland Alleys, V, Estes, and Oregon Alleys, J. W. Blaney. The Printers' Bowling league will open next Wednesday. Four teams compose the organisation, but an effort Is being made to secure two more teams. A City Duck Pin league may be or ganized to bowl on the Portland alleys. The Pacific Telephone A Telegraph company, the Mailers' union 'and the city tiall will enter teams. . WISEONESWHO MAD THIRTEEN FEDS MAKING GOOD IN FASTER CIRCLES Bobby Groom, Former Port-lander, Doing Valiant Work For St. Louis. At least 13 former Federal leaguers are now making good in the American and National leagues. "The poor Federal players won't last long when they get into real fast company," said the skeptic when the players of the defunct league were signed up by the two old major organizations before the opening of the present season. But their skepticism has not been borne out entirely by the results. Here is what some o't the former Federals are doing now: Nick Cullop, former pitcher with the Kansas City Feds, is now pitching .765 with the New York Yankees. Hal Chase, who -first based for the Buffalo Federals, is now hitting over .330 for the Cincinnati Reds, and leading the National league. Allen, the former Pittsburg Federal ' pitcher, is twirling .800 with the Boston Braves. Gene Packard, now with the Cubs and formerly a Kansas City Federal twirler, is putting them over at a .671 clip. Bobby Groom, a former St. Louis Fed twirler, has an average of .591 with the St. Louis Browns. Davenport, another St. Louis Fed eral now twirling with the Browns, is shooting them across at a .522 rate and bids fair to climb a great deal higher. Lee Magee, the Yankee outfielder who was with the Brooklyn Federals ast year, Is hitting only .257, but he has been out of the game with in juries. Benny Kauff. outflelding for the Giants, and a former team mate of Magee, is well up among the leaders with an average of .284. Rousch of the Newark Feds, now outfielding for the Cincinnati Reds, is hitting around .252. Ed Konetchy, former Pittsburg Fed eral, now playing first base with the Boston Braves, is slamming the ball at .260. Armando Marsans. the little Cuban outfielder who played with the St. Louis Feds last-year and is now with the Browns, is slamming the pill at about .245. Bill Rarlden, the Giants' catcher who was with the Newark Feds last year, is hitting around .221. Flack, the Chicago Cub outfilder. who was brought over with the most of the Chicago Federal team, is hitting .259. Portland A tkletes Are Honored Given All - American Berths Captain Walter Hummel of the Multnomah Amateur Athletic club team, who bettered both the junior and the senior 440-yard low hurdles records in the national championships at Xewatk September 8 and 9, and L. Vere Wlnd-r.agle, captain of tleCornell crosscountry team and intercollegiate mile run champion, have been given places on the all-American track and field team selected by a prominent New York athletic critic. This is the first time since 1908 that two Portland athletes have been y, so honored by eastern writers. That - LIj year Dan Kelly, Forrest Smithson and A. C. Gilbert were recognised.

OAMPFIRE WINS $48,000 DURING '16 FOR OWNER Richard Wilson's Great Two-Year-Old Started Nine Times. New York, Sept. 30. Campflre, Richard T. W"iIson's great 2-year-old colt, which started nine times in the 1916 racing season in New York, wtos the most consistent winner on the bi? tracks In the state. Out of his nine tftps to the barrier he finished in the lead six times. Wilson was. the biggest winning owner of the season and his winnings came for the most part from his wonderful colt's efforts. Among Campfire's victories were the J17.340 Futurity, the $18,850 Hopeful, the $2850 Sanford Memorial, the $46:5 Saratoga Special, and the Great Amer ican, which netted $3900. Campiire won, all told, approximately, J4S,00'.. In addition to six firsts the colt twl.-e was second, and one came in unplaced. In this latter place the youngster got away to so bad a start that his rider admitted he trailed, knowing it to be useless to attempt overhauling the field. The record of Friar Rock, the 3-year-old recently sold by August Belmont to John T. Madden for $50,000, places him first among the season's 3-year-olds. His greatest accompl'.fb-ment was winning the Saratoga Cup from the Finn and Roamer. He made racing history in winning the Brooklyn Handicap, the Suburban handicap, and the Belmont handicap, something rirj for a 3-year-old. He undoubtedly would have won the Realization stakes had he been allowed to. start, but n;s new owner decided to retire him to the stud without running the risk of injuries in what would have been his final race. Junior Oarsmen Win In All Crew Events Coach Herman Stoll of the Arundel Boat cIub, Baltimore, is being congratulated on the feat of his junior four-oared gig crew winning in succession Junior, Intermediate and senior four-oared gig events in the annual Middle 8tates regatta held last Labor day over the mile straightaway course on the Potomac river, Washington, D.

There Is located In this town the only college in the country having a woman for a full fledged football coach. She Is Mrs. Earl W. Brannon. wife of the coach of the Jonesboro Agricultural college football team. Mrs. Brannon had been assisting her husband but this year she will coach a team of her own. She will have full charge of the Aggie Preps' team and will be the sole guide and board of strategy of the eleven. Here Is what her husband says of her. "She 'broke in' as a scout, when I sent her to scout some formation of prospective rivals, in their early sea son games. She showed me that she knew 'inside football' as well as any of my" assistants. "Last season she helped to plan our offense and defense for every game and showed an uncanny ability in pick' Ing the weak places in formations, shifts and plays. Will Have Kale Assistant. "This year she will have a regular assistant who will te,ach her players the rudiments of game, such as block ing, tackling, charging, passing, punt ing and kk'king. She will contribute chalk talk explanations to this work beside planning and organizing the team play. "She will have complete charge of the preparation of her team for the seven games, which are upon the schedule. "During the last season, which was a very fortunate one for the Aggies, Mrs. Brannon was a full fledged member of the board of strategy. Her In sight into the possibilities which de-vtloped during the season.. was by far the keenest of any of my assistant!. "She appeared on the field regularly and helped direct the practice. It was mpossible.'of course, for her to demon strate the rudiments of the game, but she was very adept in explaining clearly the fundamentals as well as the in tricate points.- Hex Style Zs Feasible. Her ideas are very clearly defined as to style of game. It is needless to say that while her style is very much the tame as that used by me; never- heless, she is instinctiveness in many departments of the" sport; so much so tliat the second team, which she will coach this year, will probably play a different game from the first team. "She will have an assistant coach who will demonstrate each rudiment as tackling, blocking and charging. She will direct tbe team both on defense and offense during the scrimmage practices. The forward, passing, punt- ng and drop kicking will be taught to the entire squad, the individual ccaching In these departments being handled by the head coach or his assistants. The second team is generally com posed of players from the preparatory department, of the school and are about high school class in age and s'.se. They will be called the Aggie Preps and will play a regular schedule of games with the high schools of the state. ' Has Ho Use for Other Sports. 'Her training has been sufficient for the work. She attended the Lincoln (Neb.) high school and the University of Nebraska. She was a very keen and enthusiastic student of the game, be ing fond of a31 athjtlc sports. She has r.o use for tennis, golf or girl basket-bell, claiming these pastimes are tepid. 'She t-jvelshs only 115 and is not the masculine type at all. Strangely she dees not believe In woman suffrage nor any of the other modern fads, of the age. "She never gives up and believes that a team can win any game if the players fight hard enough. Her name was Cozette McManigell before she a as married and she is a French-Irish-American, which probably accounts for the above point of view." That Mr. Brannon himself is a coach of no mean ab lity is shown by the record of the Jonesboro Aggies last year.' They played six games and won all but one of them by m wide margin. Their only defeat was administered by Ouachita colle-e. 12 to S. This year the Aggies play the Uni versity of Mississippi, Arkansas college, Henderson-Brown, Ark.. Normal Union university, Ouachita college and Western Tennessee Normal. Frank Kanaly, the famous Boston I middle .distance runner has retired. LESSONS BY A WOMAN Racing locally for the first time since tts launching, the: Vogler Boy III, Fred Vogler's sensational 20-foot speed boat, carried off f first honors in the free-for-all event of the Joint re gatta of the Portland Mctor Boat and the Oregon Yacht clubs yesterday afternoon in the upper harbor. - ' . With Orth Mathlot as mechanician, the Vogler Boy 111 beat the famous old racing boat, Oregon Wolf IV. by 2 3-5 seconds over the eourse, which . measured some distance over six miles. The time of the Vogler Boy III was 9:59 8-5. The Vogler Boy II finished third, its time being 10:42 2-5. The Vogler Boy III led the Oregon Wolf IV during practically every foot cf the race Johnny Wolff taking the lead but once and that was when the boat turned tbe buoy in front of the club bouse on the second lap. T arrow Winnar. One of the best races of the day was the apecial scratch runabout between The Yarrow.-Zephyr and Neverln, the Yurrow winning by a good margin. Tbe runabout handicap for bouts in the over 15-mile class wsts an exciting event, all boats finishing inside their time allowance. Gus Fleming's Mat-gus took first place honors with the Merganser second and the WawegO third. The Gee Whiz, the scratch bout, started 40 seconds late, but finished Just 23 seconds behind tbe Matgus. The Neverln took first place In the runabout handicap for boats In the under 16-mile class and the Dolly Var-den won the cruiser handicap, the Sea Wolf being disqualified. Tlemisc Wins Easily.

Portland Bowling Alleys "Y Basement Medical Building. Cor. Park and Alder Sts. ; Vancouver, Wash., Sept. SO. Te many people the mention of winning a championship Is taken as a mere matter of fact and is given slightly nothing mora than a passing notice and allowed to drop. Among such cases might be cited that of Frank M. Troeh, sensational trapshooter of this city, who established a great record for himself st the Orand American tournament held in St. Louis last month. Much of his success must be at- tributed to bis unassuming mannerand his "winning smile." Among the events- in which he was entered was the na tional amateur singles championship In which be was pitted against the champions ef SS states, which he won with a score of 99 out of 100. The shoot was held during one of the severe hot spells, when the entire country sweltered. It was much more notlcable to the local shot bcause of the hot nights which made sleep 1m- possible. Ia order to overcome this to some extent Troeh made provisions for an electric fan and what sleep he did get was under its breeses. Notwithstanding this and other die- I comforts Troeh easily led the field. Six hundred and fifteen shooters were entered -in the tournament. During Troeh's stay he shot at 700 registered targets and broke 664, for an average of .84 87. His nearest competitor , on, .. 700 targets, dropped 20 targets more' than Troeh,' breaking only 644. Wlas Mound Cltj! Overture. Troeh flninished third in the first day's event, the St. Louis Introductory. Shooting from the 18-yard Una he broke 193 out of 200. The second -day Troeh entered the Mound City overture contest, breaking 99 out of 100 and tying with three others. In the shootoff he broke 20 straight, winning first place in this event. - On the third day he won the national amateur slnglog championship f with 99 out of 100 birds. In this event he broke 79 straight before he dropped - . a bird. In the national amateur dou- ' bles the following day he won aecond placo with a score of 88 out of 100. First place. was won with 89. Shoot Irg from the 21-yard line In the preliminary handicap Troeh broke 92 out of 100, losing only eight birds and on the final day In the Grand American handicap and again shooting from the 21-yard line, be broke 98 out of the 100. Troeh's total of 664 out of 700 birds, s participating in all events and shoot ing at all distances and angles, is one which may remain for some time. Prior to entering the Grand American Troeh haid a successful year along the coast. He won high average honors In the championship shoot of the ' Sportsmen-'s Association of the Northwest, the Spokane Gun club, the Washi ngton Stale tournament, the Lewis- ton, Idaho, tournament and tbe Rose Festival shoot In Portland. In the last named event he broke 199 out -of 00 birds and made a run of 126 before missing the one bird. Champion of Washington. His winning the high average at he Washington ItState tournament also won him the state championship and it was that that made him eligible to enter Into competition for the highest -possible shooting honors. His average this year has been above 96 per cent. Last year on 2050 reg- lstered targets he averaged 96.84 per cent and in 1914, shooting at a total Of 2430 targets, he secured an average of 93.74 per cent. No one can dispute Troeh s claim of being one of the best shooters Jn the country today. Very few qt the eastern trupshootere , attend tho grand American trapshoot- Ing tournament when it Is held in the middle west, and there are some trap- shooters who think that It would be a wise move to take the tournament to the east and see how the shooters ouJd turn out.
