The Berry Pickers looks as likely as any. Brandon's chances to win the second series brighten every day. Those twen- 'ty-f'ive home games Mor- row considerably.

Edmonton "Journal: Bill Morrow says tnat Brandon is the nearest to the salary limit of any team in the league and that he is .a trifling over it. That seems to mean that ev- ery (team in the league is over the limit, and that the limit is merely a joke. Calgary Albertan: However if Brandon rounds into the final stretch any where, near to Calgary and Edmon- ton it is likely to give a scare at least. Calgary plays its 'last seven games with Edmonton. Brandon plays its last seven games iwith Winnipeg which is the weakest team in 'the league or about the weakest. Moose Jaw Times: "Is there no salary limit in the league, and, if so. why is Calgary allowed to ieep the aggregation that -is playing for them this year? The league officials will have to do something mighty soon or most of the clubs might as well close up shop. A little investigation into the money earned by the players would probably be much more effec- tive than starting a new series.'' Medicine Hat News: "Zip Zimmer- man, who signed on with Lethbridge at the time the Medicine Hat fran- chise was transferred to Saskatoon, may have to rejoin his former club mates. Saskatoon has made a claim on him, and it looks as though the new may make its claim stick. Billy Hamilton says Zip signed on with the Hat this year, but the contract was lost." hooked up to the Bank of Montreal for advances to the club amounting j to Of this, sum, the third and fourth calls on subscriptions, .when j paid, would wipe off leaving a deficit of Regarding h'is reasons for turning over the Hat franchise to the League, Mr. Cousins states that to four, the locals should have easily won -but Chrew the game away with four costly errors.

THEIR EYES ON OLD ENGLAND NOW New York, July great many norse men are making preliminary plans to be ready to go to England f .the race tracks in New York fin- ally decide to close. Some of those who Jtiav-e gone across the water in years have prospered, and it s a significant fact that those who re prospering abroad are those who prospered here. The significance lies n the fact that ability achieves suc- cess wherex-er it Is brought into play. A great many unsuccessful horsemen used to be fond of referring to the men who trained in the big stables owned by men high in the councils if the Jockey club, as being espec- ally favored by the governing powers or selfish reasons, ibut these same in England and Prance, Ihave had to meet conditions where odds were against them, and yet they suc- ceeded, anyhow. England will, of course, be the ob- jective of most of those who go ab- road, because English is the only lang uage with which most of the horse- men are familiar, but s. few will fol- low Fred Burlew's example and go to Prance, and pick up a knowledge of French while chasing the franc, which is doubtless as hard to catch there as the dollar is ihere. Others will go to Germany, and others to South America, w-here racing--has been growing In popularity for some years. Of course, it was introduc- ed into the South American countries by the English colonists, 'but the nat- natives have -begun to 'take a fancy to it, and it may get to be the ibig thing there that it has been here.

LOOKING FOR NEW UMPIRES New York, July fans in New York believe that President Lynch's trip through the West will re- ?ulc in a number of important changes in the umpiring staff of the National League. If there are no changes this season it is expected a mimber of new faces will be seen on the diamond next year calling balls and strikes and- judging base r.unning. The Eastern teams, especially, have complained titat umpiring this year has been worse than ever before, the players on the New York team going so far as to address a circular letter to President Lynch complaining of the treatment they are now receiving in the West. .President Lynch believes that um- pires can make or break the game. As ja former umpire, he knows the neces- sity of having in the field. If he believes his present staff is competent he can be counted on to 4 j uphold them. If his actual observa- 3 j tion shows him 'that the men are not the Britts will play a friendly game- on the square. Referee Stroud will officiate in to- night's league football match between the Westminsters and the Y.M.C.A. Following is the S.O.E. line-up for the game with the Britts to be play- ed on Friday evening on the square: Mclntyre Farris and Sarell 5 Chis- wick, Holberton and Firth; Fair- brother, Faunch, Wood, Brennan, Wil- letts.
