MAR3W TO RACE .FOUR GOOD MEN NEXT SATURDAY A RECOGNITION AND AN APOLOGY In the course of a letter to C. J. Eckstorm, president Western Canada F. H. McPherson, sporting editor, Edmonton Capi- tal, had the following to say, which speaks for itaelf: "The people of Edmonton -wish to thank you for the way you stood up..for fair play in the Calgary-Edmonton fragco, aad I fear up Jhsre -we have subjected yo.u to a -lot of uncalled for abuse, for which we all certainly offer our apologies." The Capital has been bitterly opposed to the administration throughout the. season, but the Herald is pleased >to note the change in opinion that has taken plaice, which is no doubt very cheering to Mr. Bckatorm, who surely has been earnest in his endeavors to meet out a square deal to every club in the league, impartially and- wlthout prejudice in spite of those who viciously attacked him. To those who know him; best Mr. Bckstorm's integrity is unassailable. There are others who might display manliness by coming forward and admit they were wrong besides the Edmonton Capital.

Oldring is one of the finest center field-ers today in the busi- ness, a fine driver, a clever hunter, grand thrower, with the proper nerve.' and oceans of speed. Hofman is a finish until they are today fit to play the game of their life. As the games will not take for a couple of weeks there is some doubt as to who s 'working on the right dope.

I think the men who enjoy life more than Outers are the men who have many friends. 1 try to be square with them all and am so far as I know, and I'll go the limit for any of them for the asking.
