V - CUBAN PLAYER� TO INVADE U.S. With a natural dearth ot good baseball-material in sight the coming season on account of the war, report comes-^frpm Cuba to the effect that playert"of that country propose to drive' upon American baseball in the hope ot finding openings. The situation'is rendered at least plausible from the tact that, although Cuba Is nominally at war with Germany, )io army is to be raised, �n4 oonsequentlj no drafting is tc/be done there. Both the major and whatever mlnors^emain are said to be contemplated In the proposed drive. ' The Cuban would appear to otter the be^t tletd for recruiting in case Ameri-oau.-managers are sorely pushed tor "diamond recruits. The best baseball talent in the world next to the U,S,A. is to be found on Cuban soil, and tho fact that the players have been at tho game during the winter months would enable them to step Into the harness in this country ill shlpslvape.. The move to overrun America with bubanSj'whlch started with such a rush several y,ears back, but which has fllvvered ot late, now has ^he ctiance of a lljetlmo to stage a swell comeback. - SEniEMENT BOARD Vancouver, Jan. 29.-A World special despatch from Ottawa says:" Two ol.the members of the soldiers' land settlement board will be Major Ashton, M,P,P, a Regina returned soldier and C, P.
