What the outcome of the pennant races in tha two leagues will be only tha future can disclose. In tho American league, the Chicago WUlto Sox, world champions, are conceded to have the edge In playing strength and confidence which comes with the capturing of a championship. One or two of the rival comblna-tioas. particularly tha New York Americans, have be^n atrengtli-ened as the result of trades and cash purchases and it Is likely that the race for first place will be fully up to the standard of past years. Qiairta in National. In the Nntlonal league the New York Giants, winners of the 1917 pennant, nre atlU the favorites for the ftac. but on paper, at least, the team does not appear to b� quite ms impressive aa � year ago. In addition there is certain t^ be ^eater opposition on tho part of two or three clubs wfaiob have built up stronger teams than were available last season. In a general way Cincinnati and St. Loula appear prominently In this particular with at laaat one other oomblna-tioB lo the role of a dark horse. THE TROUBLES OF THE A. A. A.

Such a move might perhaps be a little hasty for it is an even-money bet that there will be a general housecleaning after the war, and perhaps a dominion-wide white-wnahtng. The men in khaki, whether of pre-war amateur or pro fesaional standing, who btvie been mingling in games behind tho lines, in the rest caiups and over in England, are not coming back to Canada to be told that hereafter Private Jones must not take part In competition with Private Smith, because the first-named took a cash prize at the Squedunk fall fair in 1912.

Hugo Bexdek, manager of the Pirates, besides being a keen student of athletics and a competent developer of men in all branches of spbrt, is himself something of an all' around performer. Born in Bohemia, he came to this country as a child, and was a powerfully built young man when be enteral the University of Chicago about fifteen years ago. He was equally proficient in foorball, baseball and track athletics as a student, and ,lt Is said, boxed professionally for a time under the name of "Young Hugo."
