Very fittingly sport has been asked once more to do its bit. This lima it has been asked to do more than its bit, and that it will respond in a surprising way there is no doubt. The chief committee composed of Herbert L. Pratt, Walter Camp. Dr. Joseph Raycroft. Julian W.

Phillips played one season for � Vancouver before retiring, but in later years has been taking a hand at ref-ercolng in the Coast League. Phillips will play with tho Arena Vies ami will havo as teammates Frank Patrick, the peer of defence men in recent years, and Fred Whltcroft. a former eastern star, Irvine will guard the nets for the Vies.
