"The people have become so, accustomed to baseball I tli'lnk they �Avould bo lost without it. The 191T season was good, considering all conditions. Naturally, after war wa^ declared the excitement following occasioned by the efforts toward enlist-! ments diverted .th.e'-attentlon of the peoplQ from their regular channels, causing them temporarily to forgot amusements and r'ocreatiori. As an argument that people want baseball as a wartime sport Hickey referred to the situation In Toronto, Canada, which lasf season won the.International league pennant. g "Toronto had the best � year Tn its history," he said, *Tn face of the fact' that .Canada has been deeply In the war lor more than three years, and the fact that 10 per cent ot Toronto's population is In the military sorvlqe. This shows plainly that the people want recreatiim-and* that basebal] is the kind they like." With the signing ot Edward F. (Neu) Bgau as pilot of the Milwaukee cluj the managerial roster of the association is complete, with the exception of Indianapolis. James C. McGlU, owner of the club, has several leaders under consideration to succeed -Jack Hendricks, who manage the St, Louis Nationals.  Lethbridge bowlers ^ want to know the secret ot those Barons alleys. Lis-combe. especially, thlnlfls there's a jinx roosting over them. The local tribe, five strong, Invaded the millionaire town on Saturday night, and as has been usual this 'winter, they came away without Flavelle's particular product. They couldn't connect with the pins, hitting theni^for an average of 140 per man per game, which is nothing 'to write- home nbOut. They lost the match by 127 pins, so that Barons' average was only nine better, which isn't enough to throw a conniption fit about. The first game was a crime. The locals made 680 and Barons nosed out by 7 pins. In the second Leth-bridgo got up to 785 while Barons made it 827. In this game Hatfield, who had tumbled them for 111 in the fir*t game, did a come-back'with 2Q5. Con-sistenc.v, thou art a jewel. In the third Evans made 205, Imt even that didn't put the locals ahead and Barons won the third encoimter. No adding machine was present so no ono kept tab on the splits and blows. The return game of the match will be played here shortly when the locals swear they will turn the tables by many more than 127 pins. Here are the scores: Barons Hatfield......

"These players have shared among them the 60 per cent and 40 per cent of the players' pool which has been divided pn that basis to the winners and losers. As ^ a-result a sum which in the past 5 years- has averaged $143,555 per annum has been divided among some ,48 players. , ^ In the future close to 200 players will receive a portion ot the pla/ers'. pool. Under thU system the days uf large individual gains by the members ot th^ world series championabip team, are a thing of: the past. ^ , ; $2000 to Winners According to the agreement ~ Just made by the two mujor leagues the players of the two competing teams will receive 60 per cent ot the gate receipts ot the (U'st tour games'&b in the past.- Instead of sharing this su!n on a 60 and 40 Vasis, each player on: the winning team will receive a lump sum of $2000'and the members of the losing club $1400 each. After the total of these individual prize moneys has been deducted from the players' share the remainder will be divided among the players composing tlie clubs finishing 'vecond; third and fourth In both the'^National and American league pennant races. The basis of this division has not'as vet been announced, but it is generally Expected to be 60 per cent to the second clubB; 30 to tl}e third and 20 to the fourth teams in each league. Receive Far Lett With these figures to work on as .a foundation for figuring it is possible to gage with reasonable accuracy what the proceeds in the future as compared with the large amounts which annually fell to the share ol the players.who figured in the oUmax of the baseball season. Bstlmat^a based upon the worl^ series figures ot th�^ last five years show tl^at the average amount which went to the winning and losing players was $143,-555, The raoords also show 'that the a-.'ors-pa f�'(K'.?'�.' ri i?i=r''�-s thu two pennant winning clubs was about 2i, This tmakes the average aigountitu each player at the winning team about 13588, while the Individual share to the moml^erB of Iho losing teams has been |23l>S, Against,these flguresittiS' winning players will each receive $2000 and the-losing players $1400 In the future. Carrying the analysis further it will, be found that the prize money to be awarded to the actual series players in the future will approximate $81,600. Using the previous mentioned average again, the difference between this sum and what the two teams divided in the past, amounts to $Sl,955. This $61,955 is the amount to be divided among the players of the second, third and* fourth clubs in each league at the end ot the season. What Others Would Get . If the average number of players Is assumed to be the same as on the pennant winning clubs this would mean 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 $2.=)8 each. To j)Ut It In otiier- words. Instead ot the puiyers ot 2 series clubs, amounting to 48 in ail, dividing $143,555 on a 60 and 40 per cent basis, the same sum win In the future be apportioned among the players of eight clubs, the total number ot 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 ot the receipts which have averaged $159,482.97 during the last tlv^ years, after deducting- $5 per cent or $39,870 for the other league clubs. The national commission will also receive Its full 10 per cent shore of the gate receipts which has averaged $33,670 during the same pcrjod, STANLEY KETCHEL'8 START Had Dumb Manager, but Survived and Became Famous , IN TRAP SHOOTING Troeh, Washington Expert, Made Run of 284, Record For 1917 ? KALSO MEMBER TO BE SPEAKER B.C. >fOUSE That trapshooters are becoming more proficient each year Is evidenced by the remarkable number of Idng runs made. Records are compiled only of the runs of 50 straight or better, a,ud in 1917 there were 2829 runs between 50 and 74, 691 runs between 71? and 99 and 325 runs over 100, a total of 3845 runs of 50 or better. The quality of the shooters appears to Improve with quantity, for there are-^moro devotees ot 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 re-mai'kable. Xbe shooting far surpassed, that, of 1916. The best run ot ,the year was made by an amateur-Frank Troeh ot 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 riin of the year by a professional was 261, by Hugh Poston ot Lios Angeles, Cal. Ho made thib at the Pacific coast handicap at San Jose. Tlie best amateur run of the 1916 season was 283 by Fred Plum ot Atlantic City, N.J., and was made at Maple-wood, N.H. The best professional run was 252 by Arthur Killlam of St. Louis, Mo. There were only four runs over 200 in 1916, two by amateurs and two by protesslpnals. This was greatly exceeded In 1917. Besides his high run, Troeh had another ot 242, and Henry Ptirrmann, the 1916 amateur champion of California, ran 272 without a miss in the California state toumament.-'O. N. Ford of San Jose, Cal., had' runs of 200, 209 and 230, and Fred S. Bair at 'Eureka, Cal., broke 235 straight at Los Angeles, Setitember 16. A. C. Skutt of Morton, N.'Y., had an unfinished run ot 234 at Maplewood, N. H, July 6 and 7. Bart Lewis,' the Auburn (111.) prof^-sional, broke 234 at Rohlnson, III., June 5, 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 XI.

When we talked over the contracts Ketohel's ^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."
