No less than 18 teams already have been organized at the Presidio, which are practicing regularly, and the prospects are tha't more teams will be formed. Plans now are being made to get up some sort of program of play which will lead up to a basket-ball championship. It has been suggested that each camp draw up a schedule hi order to determine the best team. The best team in each camp will then meet in au elimination schedule tor the championship. A conference already has been held, by Joseph Dougherty, organizer of the army and navy basket ball league; Dwlfy Lewis, the major jeague baseball player, now stationed at Mare Island; R. L. Haslett, director of athletics at the Presidio, and Major Pope of Camp Fremont, on the matter of a championship series. It was determined to draw up a playing schedule. Inasmuch as the majority of the best players of the i#hools, clubs and colleges are in the various military and naval organizations it is expected that the game will provide a high quality of basket ball. lose to Gunboat Smith and Tom Mc-Mahon, both of whom were smaller than Miske, and they had less boxing skill.

New York, Jan. 29- The following players in the major'leagues are above the draft-age limit:- Jimmy Austin, Frank Baker, Jrtck Collins, 'Cactus" Cravath, Jake Dajibert, Larry Doyle, Arthur Fletcher, Charley Herzog. HeJ-nie Zimmerman, Larry Gardner, Geo. I Gibson, Ivan Howard, Bill Killifer, ' Sherwood Magee, Fred Luderus, Goo.

Lavender and Harry Sallee. Eddie Plank is the Nestor of the veteran squad -of exempts, the family record accrediting him with forty-two summers. George Gibson probably is the only oue with a son in the army. .Gibson evidently got an early start in the matrlmoniul game, as he now is only "going on 38." Paskert la on his way to the 37th Arthur Fletcher, who has been working his head off for the Giants for a number of years, is 31 years old. Some of the dope books give Arthur's birth place as JCdvvardsville, 111., and some to Colliusvillc, in the same celebrated state. We won't argue with them. It is sufficient to know Arthur was born, lit was in 1907 that Fletcher was yanked from the obscurity of the sandlots, the credit.for said yanking belonging to Joseph Gardner, president of tiie Dallas elub of the Texas league. Mr. Gardner's hunch as to Arthur's baseball ability was all to the good, and the sandlot player soon became a star and favorite In the north Texas metropolis. In 1908 he was sold to the Giants, who used him first as a utility outfielder. When Arthur Devlin slipped back Fletcher was - placed at third base, and when the Giants secured Herzog lor that position Fletcher was shifted to shortstop. In that position he has made a great refutation for HAD call OVER BARTFIELD World's Welterweight Champion Had No Great Margin in His Favor Toronto.-Ted Lewis, of England, world's welterweight champion, had the better of a ten-round~ no-decision bout over "Soldier" Bartfteld, of New York, at the boxing tournament held here under the auspices of the Sports- men's Patriotic association.

THAT IS WHAT YOU WILL SAY WHEN YOU SEE THE FOLLOWING; / Elgin Roadster, 1917, 3-passenger. Chalmers, 1917, Touring* Old Doc Roller, who. has been rass-ling around the country for lo, these many years, rises to remark that the head hold, used with such effect by Strangler Lewis, is not a new hold. Holler goes farther than that. He declared recently that there are no new, holds in wrestling. "The head hold Lewis uses is not a new one" says Doc. "The scissors used by Joe Steelier was not invented by Joe. and the famous toe hold credited to Frank Gotch was at least second-handed. "A man in the wrestling game appears on the horizon when he is able to use some particular hold better than all the rest. The physical prowess a wrestler'possesses In some* particular what gets him the pub- boxer, who carried the fight to Lewis at all times, lie used his left hand with great effectiveness, and landed many times ou the champion's head and body. A peculiar back-handed blow was anothor method used to more or Jess good advantage. While Lewis earned the decision by popular favor, he ftad no grent margin in any bf the ten rounds. Ills superior speed, reach and punching power stopped Bartfield many times, but the latter always came back for more. LAJOIE A BUSY'MAN ud under new j names.'* *> ? ? ? ? ? ?

If the International league keeps on going I figure I am not going to have much, time to loaf, managing Toronto, aswell as holding down all those other jobs." ? ? Driver "General" Grant, a Canadian, Is Decorated by the King i St. Catharines, Out.. Jan. 24.-As far as is known the first Canadian negro with the overseas forces to be decorated by Hi.4 Majesty the King is Jaraes Grantj more familiarly known as "General." a citizen of St. Catharines, who enlisted with the 4ftth battery, and who was later transferred to the 23rd Howitzer battery. The story of his bravery is well told in a letter received from M. J. Gordon by his parents. The letter reads in part as follows: "It is absolutely impossible for mc to give you any particulars but we have done some travelling of late. '9 have seen more of France and Belgium within the past few weeks than 1 have seen of the whole of Canada in Comparison. Some day I will be able to tell you all about it.

Three other chaps, Bugg, Lee and Watson, are the other members. : We generally divide our boxes from home up among us, so often I have one when they haven't and vice versa, and after each one we have a little sing, and we have some little quartette, too. When we were on the road travelling we would strike a town where we would stay overnight, anji would then strike out to see if ,we could find a piano.

"Long before you get this yon will likely know that 'old General Grant' bad been decorated with the Military Medal, and we are all quife proud of him. The story is as follows: The gun of B sub-section was put out of action when we were in Belgium, and another gun had to be sent'up to replace it. So a six-horse hitch under Cpl. Morris and Bombardier Miller with Drivers Buschlem. Lee and Grant were detailed to 'pull a new gun into action through a spot which was always pretty hot,' and it just happened so that the road was blocked with motor-lorrie, blown-up wagons, etc. Fritz .was shelling very heavy, and when they got to the point (a cross-road), where it seemed like almost suicide to pass, it looked as if they were stuck, �as a cuuple of | vehicles were blown up across the road and there was* the smallest kind of space to get through. Cpl. Morris ordered the lead and centre teams, driven by Lee and guschlem, to unhook and go back to where they PEG-SWP DOES WELL would have more cover for the horses and themselves, as it was utterly impossible for a six-horse hitch to get. through the space. But there was a chance that the wheel team, driven by 'the General/ might, make it. so .John Miller, and 'the General stayed with it while Boycc and Morris went to get .assistance to manhandle the gun if necessary. He returned without, any success as no one would help them or could help them, and although he had been gone hardly more than ten minutes and hurried right back. Grant, the Man "'Old General' and John Milier had man-handled the gun through the small space, and it was quite simple to pull the limber through with tli� wheel- team and bring the centre and leay" teams up, limber up and carry on. Of course, every one of them did as much as the other, but there was only one to be decorated, and as 'the General* had done several little things before this, Cpl. Morris, when asked by the major who he thought the man should be, said, 'Grant.* "They are going to prepare a big dinner for all of our brigade, and the boys tell us if it is^ anything like last Christmas it will be as good � meal as you can buy in London or Paris."
