ST. ANDREW'S TEAM St. play'" Westminster to- piorrovi- night Adams Park with tho following'tofim: Earlj Ton- and Bell; Gurr, T. Tennant, Bam- and Unnlng. There arc two antagonistic wishiul elements in this t' at present. The farmer is hoping for raiii to .come .immediately, while the baseball and iootball player- wishing the farmer no hoping to see the rain hold, off until, lit least, after Thursday evening tt'hen the Taber football team makes its initial appearance here in a ncd district league fixture: The ball-player has his .eye on lite weaiber probabilities for tomonm evening when the first league game here of the southern trio league will be played. Maclcod is the advcrsary of the' local team and indications point to an even-battle. Jlacleod has lost Wells, 5IcCarter and Peters, last season's mainstays, but they have acquired the services oi Roy and Art Lee of Taber, who have been, "some punkins" on the baseball fields of Southern Alberta for some years. Spud Murphy is likely to do the twirling for the visitors. Everybody knows Spud. Johnny Mackin, local manager, has bad some trouble locating a pitcher. He is after Phil Dollar, of Western Canada league fame, but Dellar, though making application for a job here, has not replied to Mackin's communication respecting terms. However, Johnny will have plenty oi pitching talent on hand Wednesday evening. He is lining up three outside men who are known to have battery skill of no mean calibre, who should be able, to hold down Jlacleod with average support. The game is scheduled to start at 6.30. TABER FOOTBALL TEAM HERE THURSDAY NIGHT the Callles Taber at the Athletic Park Thursday Evening This game has beeu looked for- ward to for a'long time, as Tnber is the dark horse, of the league. Taber divided the points with the Shamrocks, who beat the Callies last week, and were unlucky to lose to the North Lethbridge Un- ited on Empire Day. boat the North Lethbridge team by 1 to 0. All reports from those "who Imve seen Taber. play give them a place in the first three. A record crowd is expected at this game.

MATTY HD BATES OF I THAT PLAYED BECOMES FAMOUS HKST BAD PITCH BY "BIG SIX" SINCE 1911 Cincinnati, Ohio, Juno sev- eral years past Johnny Bates, Cin- cinnati outfielder, has been o person of cote and distinction in the Nation- al league, chiefly because lie blooms beneath the baldest pale in organized baseball. Bob Emslie used to have just as bare a dome, but since Robert acquired a touyee and caused hair to appear'where, none bad been. Bates has been left without a rival. And now Bates has still another claim to fame In the recent -'Cincinnati-New York series he got to first base as no other ball-player facing ilathewson in Na- tional league competition had since 'way .back in 1911. Matty did not bit a single foe with a pitched ball either in 1912 or in No other pitcher of the past decade has bit BO fe'w batsmen as Mathewson. m the old da-re Big Sis had ail his speed intact, the most gun- sin nitters stood UD to him as ihej would'to a Clark Griffith or any other slow -ball pitcher, knowing that their chances of -being beaned by him-were only about 2 in isOO lew Dialers have ever hit consistently .well ag ainst Matty, lias ever been deterred bj fear of bem tat him Hence the flurry of excitement over the thumping, of Bates in a convenient but not highly sensitive section at a time when Big Six seemed to be ex- erting an his customs control Matty was just due to pink some one, and Bates happened to be handy.
