In securing this permission President Ploming merely took this precautionary step with the view of playing on the safe side in case conditions are of a nature that will not warrant the playing of professional baseball in this country in 1915. The same permission was granted to the Canadian and Northwest-em leagues, and yet there is a very strong pcssibility of both these organizations doing business as usual at the otd stand. LOOKING FOR PLAYERS Should there he any kind of a favorable break in the war clouds niaklnR prospects look brighter on the baseball horizon than they are at present then there is a chance of the Western Canada league coming to life. President Westman, of the local club, is anxious tor the game and up till very recently Manager Charley Stis has been on the scout for players in the hope of giving Regina a championship team in 1915. A.s the situation stands now the Western Canada league can either play or not play without being in fear of jeopardizing its interests in any way. MOGULS SHOULD ACT There is one phase, however, which the league should not lose sight of and that is that they cannot wait until late in February to come to some final decision. If there is be any baseball in this, country next 'summer then the league moguls should be given plenty of opportunity to dispose of the players they now hav� in resetve. In order to accomplish this with any degree of satisfaction, arrangements should be made to have the date of the ' adjourned annual PORTLAND BEAT VANCOUVER IN SLASHING HOCKEY GAME First Defeat for Vancouver Team Coaat Leasue In Vancouver, B.C., Jan. 16.--In one of the roughest matches of the; sea* soil Portland broke Vancouver's Winning streak in the Pacific Coast Hockey race last night,..and won liy a score of 3 to* 2.
