VICTORIA, April 27—Led by outfielder Archie Wilson and Lou Kubiak, Victoria Athletics pounded out a 16-7 triumph over the Spokane Indians tonight in a Western International League game before about a thousand fans.
Wilson hit successive home runs over the centre field wall in the fifth and sixth innings to drive in four runs, while Kubiak batting in six teammates with two doubles and a single. Wilson's circuit blows were his second and third of the season.
Every member of the Athletics picked up at least one hit and scored at least one run.
Three errors by shortstop Jack Palmer and another by Kubiak allowed the Indians to score five runs in the ninth.
Former Seattle Rainier John Orphal was behind the batters most of the evening, as the A's scored four times in the second, added single runs in the fourth and fifth, then put it beyond all doubt with six runs in the sixth. Kubiak's bases-loaded wallop to the fence in right centre-field was the big blow in a four-run eighth which ended the Victoria run-scoring.The Athletics were charged with seven boots, four of them by Palmer.

VANCOUVER, April 27—Lou McCollum, veteran Wenatchee right-hander, spoiled Vancouver's home opener tonight by out-pitching Larry Manier in handing the Caps a 3-0 blanking.

Manier started the game by walking Nick Palica, who stole second and scored after Jess McWilliams singled through the box.
In the third, two hits and a walk produced a run, while another was nipped at the plate. In the ninth, Manier hit former Capilano Lou Estes, who scored on Bill Wilson's double.

Rainiers Sell First Sacker and Outfielder
SEATTLE, April 27—Bob Moyer, first baseman for the Seattle Rainiers of the Pacific Coast baseball league, has been sold to the Dallas Rebels of the Texas League.
George McDonald moves in as the regular first baseman for the Rainiers.
Moyer played with Dallas the last two years. He was obtained by Seattle on an outright purchase from Detroit.
The Seattle club also reported Tuesday that it had to sell outfielder Frank Mullens outright to
Vancouver, B. C., of the Western International League. The flychaser had been optioned three times, the limit under baseball law, to other clubs—in 1939 by Sacramento to the Pioneer League and twice by Seattle to Vancouver.

New Ball Park Is On The Way
VANCOUVER—Acting mayor George Miller announced last night that final details had been settled between the city and Sick's Capilano Brewery for Vancouver's new $400,000 baseball stadium.
"The first sod will be turned soon," His Worship announced during ceremonies at Capilano Stadium before the opening baseball game of the season.
The Miller announcement brought no embellishment from other civil and brewery officials.
A special civic committee met Tuesday afternoon, following that Ald. Chas. Thompson admitted that the city had appended its amendments to the agreement between the two groups, and that it would now submit the agreement to the brewery company for its final approval.
Following that, he said, there would be a final meeting prior to the signing of the agreement.
Brewery officials were even less informative last night.
"We should be ready to sign an agreement soon now," he admitted, "and then work can start on clearing the site."
"However, we cannot give any definite deadlines because we have not even completed architectural plans. Until then, we cannot apply to the city for a building permit."
