McM anus BASEBALL BOXING RACING r-SPORTM HOCKEY GOLF BOWLING All Sixteen Major League Clubs To Get Into Pejinant Race Today .1 (By Fred R. Cohurn.) The war has brought about a new factor in baseball. Not only have the tranks of the diamond heroes been depleted by the call of Uncle Sam, ibnt the baseball-going populace has lost thousands of its regular mem-'berg. A number of minor leagues, 'because of these changed conditions, �'have decided not even to start a new playing season, believing, and probably rightly, that efforts to go through with professional baseball in the towns where there is little trans-Hat business meant only financial failure! Question in Big League*. A* a matter of fact the question of monetary success or failure surrounds almost every big league club in the land as well. It is predicted that Chicago, New York and other large cities will continue to do well from the box office standpoint because their patronage is dependent to a large extent npon visitors. It is also forecast that Washington, which has never been much of a financial success, will have better crowds than ever because of the governmental activities centering in the capital and in which thousands of persons are newly employed ton Americans, under the management of Ed Barrow, successor to Jack Barry, who is now in the navy, must be considered a contender. Trades! sent Gardner, Walker, Cady and Gregg from the Red Sox, but brought j them Mclnnis, Scbang. Bush and Strunk. In addition to Barry Duffy Lewis, Young Scott and Ernest Shore will play with Uncle Sam's forces. The lineup is a problem, but the i strength of the team should be there.

He is a hustling chap From the playing end of the game wittl 8 �**at amount of baseball there is bound to be vast changes, orains, but doesn't seem to have pefl The criticism -has been heard that professional baseball has not responded with warmth to the call of the nation for men, more men and more money to defeat the Huns. This, on the face of it, does not seem a correct statement. Professional baseball has sent any number of players into various branches of the service, and to print a list of the professional ball players who have abandoned their livelihood to go'Into army of the service is absolutely beyond the ability of any writer of the game. Just One Example. Simply for an example it may be mentioned that the Cwnp Dodge team, which is to play at Nicollet park today, is composed entirely of men who were professional baseball players laet season, ranking from American and National league men down to the smallest leagues in the country. Bemuse of these many changes In the makeups of the various big league teams predictions as to the outcome of the races carry less weight than ever before. It is impossible to tell at this stage what effect the loss of certain players will have upon certain clubs. 'The places of veterans are to be filled with recruits who are not subject to the army draft, and the whole complexion of the big league pennant hustlers therefore takes on  new and rather interesting aspect. Added to the enlistment and. draft losses there are the many trades which big league clubs went through during the winter season. These are bound to nave their effect in rendering the flag chases difficult of solution at present. White Sox Strong. In the..Americaa league the Chicago champions have lost few men. They will enter the race with practically the same lineup with which they won the world's Beries from the Giants. They1 do not seem to have added strength, j but possibly do not need it. The Bos- nant winning material on his club despite the unquestionable batting ability of Pratt, Baker and Pipp. There have been many changes in the National league. The acquisition by Chicago of Kllleter, Alexander and Paskert from Philadelphia will put the Cubs in the front rank. A weak infield may deny them a top notch place. McGraw has lost Outfielder Robertson, and probably will lose Benny Kauff He is still without ,ajecond baseman, but isn't worrying. Christy Mathewson's club, even without Fred Toney, looks falfly formidable. Bezdek has improved his Pirates and will be in better than last place this year. The Boston Braves have lost Marnaville, Gowdy and others of note, and will enter the race in none too good shape as far as veterans are concerned. The Philadelphia club is shot to pieces and is not now considered a factor. Robinson will hare to use extreme measures to keep his Brooklyn Dodgers near the top with the present lineup. Jack Hendricks, former Indianapolis general, is the new Cardinal commander at St. Louis. Huggins left him a fair team, and if Jack can get the baseball out of them, which is doubted by many good judges, the St. Louis entry will be heard from. It didn't take long for Al Ross to get going when he struck Sarcee camp. We said it wouldn't, and we said it right. It was perhaps a lucky coincidence that Ross should be called to Sarcee just at the time Sergt. "Kid" Scaler returned from the front and opened up a boxing club in Cow Town. Scaler is teaching boxing to classes of youngsters which he has organized and incidentally he is putting on some programs with four-round bouts between good boys. The first card will be staged on Friday evening next and-Young -Boss is billed to meet Billy Miller, the Calgary boy who. essayed unsuccessfully to stay ten rounds with Frankie Brennan �at Vulcan. Miller has had a hankering to meet Ross for a long time, and wanted a match staged here but the local promoters could never see it. Ros3 is altogether too clever for the Calgarian. American League.

Boston, April 16.-Harry Cooper was the only member of the famous old outfield of the Boston American League Baseball club to appear in the lineup announced by Manager Barrow to oppose the Philadelphia Athletics in the opening game of the league season here yesterday. Hooper appeared in his familiar role as leading oft the batting order. Of the other members of the old outfield, called by experts one of the greatest in the game, Duffy Lewis is in the navy and Trig Speaker is with the Cleveland club. 1 We Have Two Used Cars That Are Exceptionally Good Buys Bijou Motor Parlors Limited THE HOUSE OF SERVICE FIFTH 'STREET SOUTH ... LETHBRIOOE, ALTA. ��*v�vffvvv�vv�4 .;. * ? THE NEW BASEBALL LINGO. ? *>  In the past baseball has been compared with everything from a one-arm quilting bee to something foraged by the cat. This year, with thousands of fan3 on the firing line, "the grand old game" will be affected by the war; and baseball IS war, according to the musings of Connie Mack. Fans who have prided themselves on the synonymous vocabulary of baseball will have to begin all over again. Here's a few suggestive buzaes: Players will go OVER THE TOP^ unless strapped in Pullman upper berths. NO MAN'S LAND will be the territory bounded on all sides by the Texas league. The BLIGHTY role will depend largely on the , number of wild pitches. Players disagreeing with the umpires will join the AVIATION CORPS under Flight Cai/t. John J. Evers. Any player who swings three bats I at once will be guilty of CAMOUFLAGE. Pitchers will be subjected as usual to BARRAGE FIRE from the coaching boxes. ' In spite of war economy. BILLETS will be maintained in the best hotels. NIGHT ATTACKS will resujlt whenever the-managers retire early. TRENCH FEET will prevail every time vapor arises from Walt Johnson's fast one. The CROIX DE GUERRE will be bestowed upon all players who won't look into the stands on Ladies' Day. A SHELL HOLE will mark the spot where Ping Bodie hits the dirt. POISON GAS will taint the breeze every time the umpire misses a close one. Players who pay their fraternity dues will be classed with the BOL-SHEV1KI. 1 LISTENING POSTS will be installed for the purpose of learning the opinion of the fans anent boots and wild pitches. Victories of the Athletlx be 6harged to U-BOAT atrocities. Detroit, Cleveland and the White Sox will employ their TANKS in centre field, respectively.

The flower girls were members .of the Mutual, of which Edith was an active member. The girls were all dressed in white, as were also the lady members of the choir.

A beautiful anchor, a tribute from the choir of which the departed was a member, also beautiful tributes from the school children, Bee Hive i Swarm, Women's Institute, of which Mrs. Parkinson Singleton was an officer, and many others. A large number journeyed to the cemetery. The Edward F. Tretz, orator and newspaper man, who Is to speak here shortly on food control, went to France for the United States Food Administration after several months work as speaker for the government in behalf of the Liberty Loan and the Food Administration activities. Much of his newspaper work was done in Kansas City. Later he was for several years field secretary for the Chamber of Commerce of the United States. He has unusual ability as an orator, and brings first hand information England and France at -war. With the U. S. Food Admlnistra-tion's Commission to France, Mr. Tretz visited the battlefront in France, and was also with the commission when the agricultural regions of France and England were visited. He has learned to what degree success in the war depends on big crops in the allied nations during the coming spring and summer, and how much will be required from America, involving both increased production and tiecreased consumption. Stories of trench life, of the English. French and American armies in France, and of the general situation in both England and France fill Mr. Trofz's address. He has lived with the allied soldiers {and the American troops, eating the food that Is served at the front. And his impresalp'/* of Paris and London, where he conferred with governmental oificials, are particularly vivid.
