UVE SPORT GOSSIP 5ASEBALL NOTES, Harvard plans to engage Fred Ten- Jiey as professional .baseball coach next year. The position -will be worth as much as a year to the former Giant star. No matter how great a pitcher-may foe there is always some team that he is never successful against. The Now York team, for instance, seems to 'be Walter Johnson's Jonah. v Jesse Tannehill, the veteran pitch- er of the Minneapolis club, has Millers. Jesse figured he was not j his salary. He is seeking a managerial berth with some league team. The Lethbrldge Dally Herald.

Barbour is 21 years old and taken a fancy to the fighting game and has donned 'the. gloves with many of the big stars of the profession.
