The fate of the Western Canada Baseball League will be de- cided at the 'meeting of the League in Calgary tomorrow. The important questions at issue are: Will the league continue as in the past? Thjs is very uncertain. Will a new organization be formed? Calgary favor? an Alberta League, taking in Lethbridge, Calgary, Edmonton, Medicine Hat or Strathcona. Brandon would include thsinse'rea, Winnipeg, Caigary and Edmonton in a new compact, and Edmonton supports a like formation. Saskatoon furnished a somewhat humorous surprise by asking for a six club league-not including Calgary and Edmonton. Winnipeg has had little to say on the subject but it is thought that the prairie metropolis prefers the old league in to a neiv and uncertain venture. While Winnipeg has had little to say on the subject, Lethbridge has had even less. The local club has had no meeting to decide how it stands and a delegate may only be selected at the last iaoment or not at all. Will Eckctorm Be Returne'd? Whether or not C. J. Eckstorm will fee returned as president if the old league lives, has occasioned some doubt in certain quarters of the circuit, but there is every reason to beiiove that he has the confidence of the majority of the clubs and right licrc we feel that he will remain high dictator. Sam Savage, of Caigary, and Wm, Cousins, of Medicine Hat, have been named as possibilities. The Salary Limit Question. If the Western Canada League is continued, its success greatly depends upon the salary limit. Last year it was Sl.SOO a but it was exceeded by all the clubs to an alarming extent. In fact several of the clubs paid little attention to it; thus the club which could afford the most money for players had an undue advantage. The smaller clubs thereby were seriously handicapped. This ques- tion will be discussed thoroughly at the meeting a solution -will be attempted, whereby the cjubs will be forced to heed the limit set down. Another momentous question to come up will be the admission fee. It has been proposed that this be raised from twenty-five to fifty- cents. Lelhbridge may as well throw up the sponge if a fifty cent general admission idea goes through. Baseball hasn't reached that stage in Lethbridge where it would be feasible. It might work satisfactorily in the larger cities, b.ut not here, it is felt -r "r v -i- v ATHLETEvS ALWAYS STICK TOO LONG the ball for a moment, mut-jthe previous striker, who was impris- vntyor over it, whirled ror.nd. ioned atout the second base was gross- his arm like a ly maltreated and was unable to run I his leg up and. when flintier. lie had thoroughly- deceived -That finished the Innings, for. as e man, the ball at him {hree were put hors J.I bia might.

It is ncit to impossible to convince some broken down wrestler that his days as a pler are over. It's almost worth your life to with a once great fighter that he Is all in and should retire on his laurels. Its just as foolhardy to try and Im- press on some ballplayer or umpire Uhat hi? best days are over and that he is rapidly going back. For some reason or other every athlete in every branch of sport can seldom be made to realize that he is hitting the toboggan and should aaako room for the younger generatlpn. They all insist on clinging to tho belief that they were never better, that next year they will come back stronger than ever, that they never were more val- uable to the respective tea ma. Nelson an Examplt Perhaps- no fishtor ever enjoyed more popularity with the sporting pub- lic than Battling Nelson. willing- ness to meet all contenders for his title, his policy of always fighting on the his gameness under any and all conditions, made him a strong favorite..
