"Wo look forward to a good year," lie said. "The people have become so accustomed to baseball 1 think they would be lost without it. The 11)17 season was good, considering all conditions. Naturally, after war was declared the excitement following occasioned by the efforts Toward enlistments diverted the attention of the people from their regular channels, causing them temporarily to forget amusements and recreation. As an argument that people want baseball as a wartime sport HJckey referred to the situation :n Toronto, Canada, which last season won the International league pennant. * "Toronto h&d the best year Tn Us history," he said, *Tn face of the fact j that Canada has been deeply in the war for more than three years, and the fact that 10 per cent of Toronto's population is in the military service. This shows plainly that the people want recreation-and that baseball is the kind they like." With the signing of Edward F.

This $61,955 is the amount to be divided among the players of the second, third and' fourth clubs iu each league at the end of the season. What Others Would Get . If the average number of players 13 assumed to be the same as on the pennant winning clubs this would mean J that the 48 players of the two second position clubs would receive 50 percent of the $61,955, or about $645 each. The third place club players on the 30 per cent basis would receive $387 and the fourth position club players $258 each. Tojjut It in other words, instead of the players of 2 series clubs, amounting to 48 in all, dividing $143,555 on a 60 and 40 per cent basis, the same sum will in the future be apportioned among the players of eight clubs, the total number of men being approximately 192. No changes are to be made in the system of distribution used to allot gate receipts to the pennant winning club owners or the national commission. The stockholders of the world series clubs will divide equally their share of the receipts which have averaged $159.482.!�7 during the last five years, after deducting 25 per cent or $39,870 for the other league clubs. The national commission will also receive its full 10 per ceui shore of the gate receipts which hay averaged $33,670 during the same period. troduced a bill in conprefc-s which wotfld grant citizenship to all Indians. SPEAKING OF AUTOMOBILES Did you ever stop to think bow much it means to you to have your car factory built instead of assembled? Assembled cars are built in a dozen or more factories, and to as many standards. Parts are not always interchangeable and considerable delay is often experienced in obtaining parts. With factory built, cars, there is but one standard. Parts arc interchangeable and easily obtained. Factory built cars are sold under a guarantee, and in case of defects, the factory protects you. , THE MITCHELL IS A FACTORY BUILT CAR. Motor Parlors THE HOUSE OF SERVICE FfFTW STREET SOUTH ... LETHBRJDGE, ALT A* the players' share the remainder will be divided among the players composing the clubs finishing second, third and fourth in both the National and American league pennant races. The basis of this division has not as yet been announced, but it is generally expected to be 50 per cent to the second clubs; 30 to tlje third and 20 to the fourth teams in each league. Receive Far Less With these figures to work cm as a foundation for figuring it is possible to gage with reasonable accuracy what Lbe proceeds in the future us compared with the large amounts wh i c h an n u a 1 i y fell to the s ha re of the players who figured in the climax of the baseball season. Estimates i based upon the worlcj series figures i of the^ last, five years kItow that the average amount which went'to the winning and losing players was $143,-555. Thr records also show that the pennant winning clubs was about 2i. This makes the average amount, to each playar of the winning team about $3588, while the individual share to the members of the losing teams has ) been $23i�2. Against these figures the STANLEY KETCHEL'S START Had Dumb Manager, but Survived and Became Famous Jim Coffroth, the California promoter, is full of stories of old time fights. One of his favorites is a tale about Stanley Ketchel and Joe Thomas. "Thomas always did think he had Ketchel down for more than 10 seconds in their second fight,11 said Coff-roth, 'but Joe is mistaken. We all would have been glad to see Joe win. It was a great fight. Ketchel was an unknown until he boxed Joe the first draw up the country. We'd never heard of him. And he had a manager who was so dumb that he got .my goat. The match was made at 150 pounds ringside. When we talked ov�r the contracts KetcheTs manager kicked like a steer about that 150-pound clause. "I tell you my man can't make 150 pounds," he roared. "Why, he only weighs 145." The poor'boob thought he had to fatten Ketchel up to make him weigh 150. Me was such a pest that we were sick of hhn before the fight ever started', when Thomas knocked Ketchel down Stanley pulled himself up to his haunches and sat there, on his heels, and watched the referee. Me waited for 'nine1 and leaped up. No, Ketchel didn't get a lonf count when he whs down. He hardly had a frieIld *n *-h� housa b^foro *tt- fight. x$nt he had tnem when it was over."

IN TRAP SHOOTING Troeh, Made Washington Expert, Run of 284, Record For 1917 KALSO MEMBER TO BE SPEAKER B.C. )lOUSE That trapshooters are becoming more proficient each year is evidenced by the remarkable number of long runs made. Records are compiled only of the runs of 50 straight or better, and in 1017 there were 2820 runs between 50 and 74, 691 runs between 75 and 99 and 325 run3 over 100, a total of 3845 runs of 50 or better. The quality of the shooters appears to improve with quantity, for there are' more devotees of the sport each year. There were more men and women at the traps in 1917 than in any other year and the scores were better. Some of the performances were remarkable. Xhe shooting far surpassed^ that of 1916. The best run of the year was made by an amateur-Frank Troeh of Vancouver, Wash., the 1916 Washington state and national amateur champion. He broke 284 straight at Seattle, April 29-30. Pro Run of 261 The longest run of the year by a professional was 261, by Hugh Poston of Los Angeles, Cal. He made this at the Pacific coast handicap at San Jose. The best amateur run of the 1916 season was 2S3 by Fred Plum of Atlantic City, N.J., and was made at Maple-wood, N.H. The best professional rim was 252 by Arthur Killiam of St. Louis, Mo. Tli ere. were only four runs over 200 in 1916, two by amateurs and two by professionals.. This was greatly exceeded in 1917. Besides his high run, Troeh had another of 242, and Henry Pfirrmann, the 1916 amateur champion of California, ran 272 without a miss in the California state tournament,-!). N. Ford of San Jose, Cal., had" runs of ,200, 209 and 230, and Fred S. Bair of 'Eureka, Cal., broke 235 straight at Los Angeles, September 16. A. C. Skutt of Morton, N. Y.t had an unfinished run of 234 at Maplewood, N. H., July 6 and 7. Bart Lewis, the Auburn (111.) professional, broke 234 at Robinson, 111., June 0, and in September broke 256 at the Indianapolis Gun club, and Rush Razee, a professional, of Curtis, Neb., broke 206 straight at Anaconda, Mont., July .17. Troeh's Shooting Brilliant While the performances of Mark Arie at the Grand American handicap tournament, made him the outstanding figure of the 1917 trapshooting season. Frank Troeh and O. N. Ford do not, want to be slighted wheir-bouquets are being showered. Arie won the all-around amateur championship, the national amateur championship, was runner-up in the national doubles championship and tied for the Grand American handicap. He had a run of 106 from 22 yards and averaged be11er than. 97 for the week. He did everything that was possible for one man to do in a week's time. He was given credit for it. Attention will now be devoted to a few others. Troeh in the Washington state shoot broke 295 out of 300 targets, broke 395 out of 400 in the Oregon state tournament and 492 out of 500 targets in the California state tournament, closing out with an unfinished run of 185. In this tournament, too, he had a run of 242. In the Oregon tournament he had an unfinished run of 147 and at Portland, Ore., later he compiled 162. Victoria.

Although these defaulters may be compelled to enlist in the American or Canadian army or may be employed on war work, the fact that they have not fought for their country- will prove detrimental after .the war, for it is well known that ftalian emigrants sever every tie with their country after they have spent several years in America and they have obtained permanent employment and have saved ttfeir money. v y "When these men decide to settle in America they invariably send for their families from Italy. As a result It is calculated that these 500,000 defaulters will induce at least 3,000,000 reservists to join them in America." ARE OPTIMISTIC An Atlantic Port, Feb. 3.-Major Generals Thomas H.
