Al- berta last fall, arid they, including Charlie Bryant, wero also members of the Canuck basketball team. Calgary city champions, and later provincial champions. boys are all enthusiastic about the Battery, and hope to he as suc- cessful against the Huns as they were in Calgary sporting circles. A challenge has been issued to the Lethhrldge Y.M.C.A. basketball team by the battery boys, and the Calgary athletes mentioned above will bo seen !t would seem'that the wisest course for Frank Gotch- to pursue is to re- main In 'retirement'as far as'a -wrest- ling Joe Stecher is con- cerned. Gotch is 35 years old, far beyond his wrestling prime, and be- cause of years of mat idleness. Stecn- er Is 23, in the. full bloom of his young manhood, and practically at the crest of his meteoric career. It is doubtful IfGotch, 'in the days of his greatest prowess, was as wonderful a wrestler as Steelier is today. By remaining in- retirement, Gotch retains during all the rest of his days the glory'that belong to an undefeat- ed champion; to an athlete -swio met and .beat the strongest foes pitted -'him .before age came on. By coming out and trying conclusions, he probably will do a Jim Jeffries. No 'one justly would accuse Gotch of 'displaying a white feather by re- fusing to meet Steelier now. His alibi is good. He's beyond his prime arid out of wrestling condition. Yes Gotch would gain J25.000 or so by grappling with Stecher. But Gotch isn't money mad, J25.000 does- not mean much, to him now. ,Hes .upward of What is 000-to him-compared with: the probable loss of his priceless treasure At Chicago 2 ii 0 Pittsburg 4 8 0 Lavender and Archer; Cooper and Schmidt.

BOBBY KERR IN KHAKI Bobby Kerr, winner of the 220 yard championship at the Olympic games in London. 1908. is wearing khaki with the Hamilton Tigers. Kerr. has lieen active in recruiting work and will likely get a captaincy soon. TY COBB'S BROTHER RELEASED Tarre Haute, Ind., May Cobb, outfielder, brother of Tj-rus Cobb, was given his unconditional re- lease by the local Central League club today. KAUFF CONCEDES COBB'S Benny Kauft' freely admits in the j May number of the Baseball Magazine i thai. Ty Cobb is the greatest player in i the game. Hero are the exact words of the New York Giants' centre fielder; claims that I would out j Ty Cobb are bunk. I have been'aubte'd'. at saying so a good many times. I am -willing to admit that Ty Cobb is j the greatest player on the diamond a long shot. Even if I was as good as he is, he would beat me out, for he has much more experience than I have, ,so j these fake claims are I i have said and I still say that I wQn'.t j admit to myself that any ball on the field can do things that I can't; do, for I want to be as good a player as I can. I have a good natural 'eye, and am fast on my feet. I love to play baseball, have always loved it; why shouldn't I become a great player if I am lucky? That is my ambition; I admit it, and I will try as hard as I can to equal Ty Cobb or anybody else; But I know that I have a long ways lo go first, aha. Discourse, I may never' realize my ambition." SOCCER SITUATION IN OLD COUNTRY UNCERTAIN London, Enff., May the bloae ot the football league schedule inquiries are being made in many di- rections as to. the football prospects lor next season, bnt the answers to them cannot definitely given. It will depend upon the duration of the'war whether football will be run on lines which approximate to those on which" it progressed prior to the outbreak of hostilities in 1914. The. Football association has made tn Important pronouncement on the matter. It willvbe remembered that on July 19 last the council pro- mulgated a series of decisions as to the conditions under which football would be. permitted ..during tlie 1015-16 season, ami it Is -necessary that those lyho are engaged the administra- tive side" of the gaine should be re- minded of the text conditions: international' matches for the challenge cup and amateur cup snatches o2 this association be played during next season. (2) That associations, clubs be allowed to arrange matches without cups, medals, or other re- wards, to suit local conditions, pro- vided they do not interfere with'the work of those engaged in war work. Clubs may join any combination1 of clubs which may be convenient to them. (3) That matches be played only on Saturday afternoons and, on early closing and other recognised' holidays. (4) That no remuneration shall bo paid to players, nor shall there be any registration of players, but clubs and players shall be subject to the rules and conditions applicable to them on April 30, 1915. "i (5) Agreements with service after April'30, be suspended until further., order. The- emergency committee of the P. A. acting'under the powers conferred upon them by the have" decided that the above decisions shall continue to operate, until further or- der. This latest decision of the F. A; does not necessarily mean that; foot- ball under normal conditions will not be permitted next season. It really means that, so long as the war con- tinues, the F. A. will not sanction the usual competitions, and will not take any part in international games; for j the reason given in the statement pulv jlished last it is the para- mount duty to help to carry on the war to a victorious issue at the earliest possible moment, and not to do anything that will in any degree postpone or hinder the desired result. The only big competition in the United Kingdom that lias proceeded as usual' this season is the Scottish League, and the authorities who' con- trol that-have already decided that they will.continue it next season.
