American League c!!.aml>!onBhip will remain in the east ^another year. The three clubs almost unlTersally picked to battle out fn front this season are the Athletics, the Bostons and the Wash-Ingtons. Few figure any western club as having a look-ln- for the highest honors. It is supposed to be.a three-club race.

He does not .figure any other club as a possible contender. As a matter of fact, the JAthleUcs do look- like the best prospect ih the American League. Fans * cannot forget their great work in the wqrltl'B series of 19X0 and 1911, when ihey easily cleaned up on the Cubs, an,d' the Oiante.
