AMERICAN LEAGUE m U TEAMS THAT WILL COME TOGETHER-INTERNATIONAL STARTS APRIL 16th, I D ur PRELifyliNARY'TO THE a!G GO ON FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE 1 MAJESTIC THEATRE New York, Feb. 10.-The American League formally adopted without change at its meeting today, the schedule of games for 1913 already agreed upon. The National League will meet tomorrow and probably take similar action. The National Commission also will meet tomorrow, probably before the league meeting. The American League was one of the three organizations, the other two being the International and Eas-term association, until recently! /known as the Connecticut League. Beyond the ratification of the schedule, little was. done by the American League. President Ban Johnson was authorized to investigate" the' case .of Fred Perrin, a veteran '�� umpire, who is reported ill and about .to',lose'his sight, .and:'to give him' whatever financial aid -Mr. Johnson deems necessary.. ' ; Another resofution � was adopted, making it compulsory for visiting teams,to use the dressing rooms at the various parks, instead of going to the ball grounds jn their uniforms. , OPENING APRIL 10 The American League baseball season will open April 10 with the world's champion Boston team crossing bats at home with Philadelphia. | Chicago, Feb: 10-If "Big Jeff" Washington begins the season in the I Overall can hurl;'a baseball over the national capital with Frank Chance's . plate as he.'did'f^ur-years ago the New. York team. Cleveland at home; Cubs' pitching; stafj may still be the to it that her boy attends these swimming lectures. Before going into the pool every boy-will be thoroughly washed, and will also require' to pass an examination for skin affection. As .an illustration, of the amount of, instruction given'by Mr. Corsan, it is of interest to note that each week finds him-handling from five hundred to twenty-six hundred boys; from, the public schools in the various cities which he visits. His whole devoted, to instruct the boy how to swim, and it is very forunate indeed that Lethbrldge is>iin a position tp avail itself of his services. , By way of a stimulusi it may be said that every boy (newly instructed) 'who can swim the entire length of the^ pool will receive a round silver Y. 'SA. C. A. button to wear on his coat Within the past nine months, says Mr. Corsan, seven thousand people in the United i.___ . - States have lost 'tneir lives through;WWP?nts> f,ndc&t- Louis will meet drowning. Only 15 per. cent, of the ' Detro,t on the ^mer's grounds. The JackvDoharty,- promoter of the Foley -Ensign'pugilistic Engagement at the Majestic Theatre :on Friday night, is 'more 'than, anxious that this bout should ,be''a;,.BUco&fls. He wants to kefcp On promoting*, bouts, and in order to" do it, he recognizes the fact that herniust gain the. confidence of the public. .There is np doubt about the programme being an entertaining one. Propioter Doherty announced to the Herald yesterday, that he had secured twd; principals for a' good preliminary bout ot six rounds jio- ensure the patrons a.return for the price of admission, but the pronioter Of the bout is not'satisfied.with that., He is now out to.get on �. third prelim. Who he is aftjir'is not for publication yet, but it will not be amissl ito say that they wfjl be a couple of filever boys., Mr. Donerty . announces that this will be a business-like affair, and will be:1 under his personal supervision. Ths bouts will be'conductied properly arid on. time* and without the uBual "dogging" around.,that has characterized the average, bout here. "The bouts; will start on'.tlnw, if there are only three people1: in th� house," Eaid Doherty to the Herald. i'?"V. . ..

It was an uphill game all the way, with the Taber Cooks in' the' lead. or at least tied right up to the finish. Bqt by exhibiting a spurt of speed at the last the locals grabbed the game from the. fire and tucked it away on the win side of the ledger. Every inoh of the way was hard fought and the three thousand fans who elbowed their way into the 17th avenue refrigerator were treated with a.series of thrillB which culminated in the last ten minutes when the locals came up from behind, tied the score into the shape of a figure six, and then in the last minute and a half nosed; out a two goal victory. .
