It would appear now that Harrison may not arrive till the weekend, evidently having taken the tip that Ross was an opponent �worthy of his best, and ho Is staying in Chicago where he can work out to the very best advantage. AUhough the seats will not be put on sale until after Harrison's arrival, hundreds of fans are asking for reservations, many coming from as far as Dow Island. When Harrison does appear there will bo a general scramble. Meanwhile Ross is working out every afternoon over the Plaza, and is getting in the pink of condition. He will make the Iflfl pound weight without the least trouble and will be strong at that weight. Along about a year since the w�H year laankged the Vernon club ol known Federal league was about to the Pacific Coast league, but was dla-curl \ip and crawl beneath the table, missed last week.

The Feds faded aurt the public became undeluded. If there Is such a ed this comment from the San Francisco Call. "While Storalt failed to accomplish anything during the 1917 scramble, tlio fault was far from being all his. Storall was handicapped by the worst aggregation of ball players ever put under a manager and no effort was made to help him word In the compllfatlon of tlie late , build up a winning team." Noah Webster. And what happened to the managers who piloted the olght clubs In the Cllmore- circuit? The answer is easy. Hero is the list of Federal bosses as of two yeara since:' Chicago-Joseph Tinker. Kansas City-George Stovall. St. IjOuIs-Fielder Jones. Pittsburg-Rebel Oakes. Brooklyn-Leo Magee. Newark-Bill McKechnie. Buffalo-Larry Scliatly. Baltimore-Otto Knnbe. Whore Are They Today? There you have them. Those were the men selected by the club owners to perform the miracle of a modern The other managers just simply passed out, excepting Tinker, whose work with the Cuba was sugh that the newspapermen, at least, felt the natural prejudice which followed a so-called "outlaw" worked to bis detriment. Few Live to Sueeete To be sure, Hal Chase, Bonnie Knuff, Eddie Roush and a tew other Foileral league performers starred in baseball last year, but they wore few and far between. It has been the history, of every deceased outlaw league" that the competent workers were received back from whence they came with open arms because of their ability to perform a valuable aer- Mose^ to lead the Feds out of the j vice, wlldennes^ of outlaw striving into | But U'a passing strange that two the promised land' of regular third years after tlie demise of the Feds loaguelsm. And where are they you can count on one hand the today? i ' worthies thereof Identified actively Oi\e one-Fielder Jones-remains with the pastime. Of course, Charles as boss of a ball club in or out of th^ major leagues. Ho piloted the Browns after Phil Ball and associates were permitted to acquire the American league club as a sop for allowing the Federal to die a graceful death. Joe Tinker Is a manager In the minors because he interested Packer Wilson In tho Columbus club and got himself elected president thereof. ' Shifted to Reds Bin McKechnie was at Cincinnati where he did a hit of Infieldlng till a bad-hopping grounder broke hi^ right thumb. Leo Magee was traded to the Browns by the Yanks because he hit a whole lot less, than .260. He no longer is esteemed even as a ordinarily good outfielder. Rebel Oakos hooked on with Jim McGlll as aianagur of the Denver team in, tho Western league. Ho piloted that outfit lu 1910 and was ro-1 engaged In 1917, but was yanked to j Indianapolis as n private to assist in grasping the Amorican association i flag. ' Otto Knabe went to tho Cubs as ! chief shouter and passed Into the International league as an utility player. Pauea From Qame Larry Schafly has dropped out of baseball, so far as can be ascertained. Weoghman, PhilOSall and a tew others endure, but thoy have money and the dollar shouts loudly almost anywhere.

The game will be played more than ever before, as it is now an established recreation or benefit tor old and young alike. The association is desirous of holding a second Liberty tournament in 1918 and will endeavor to reach every club in the country, the number of which Is estimated to be between g.'iOO and ,3000. This tournament and the open patriotic tournament, given for charity, held at Whitemarsh valley, were the only two competitions held under the direction of the United' States Golf association in 1917, the association having adopted the policy ot canceling its championships due to the war situation now prevailing. Growth Has Been Remarkable The growth of the game of golf in the United States during tho last 23 years has far surpassed tho most optimistic prediction of the handful ot enthusiasts who organized the United States Golf association on December 22 1SD4. Its popularity and benetits soon became apparent, however, ^and some idea ot the expansion ot the game may be gained by looldng; over the report of the Liberty tournament held under the auspices of tho United States Golf association on July 1, 1917, from which it will be interesting to note that the association communicated with no leas than 1497 golf clubs. All But Four States Represented Every stale in the Union was represented in thls^ event excepting Idaho, Nevada, New Mejflco and Oregon, and the amount received at the tlmp the report was issued In October was over $72,000. Since that time, however, tho total has been increased to more than $80,000, due to late returns from clubs that hold the event, / The undertaking was .a decided success from every standpoint and demonstrated that thp golfers 'of the United States exerted themselves to make this event a nation-wide, patriotic testimonial. Tho tournament was carried on with tho hearty cooperation of tho American Rod Cross and owes much of Its success to their willlne efforts. The success o� this effort alone fixes the status of golf in America as a recreative and competitive pastime which' will endure even under the handicaps necessary and Incidental to war'time.
