manager in ten years. And then look
at the material he had to work with,
which makes him look a bit better
from a managerial standpoint
Joe had very little to work with,
and some other clubs in the league
were better-than in 1915. Joe de
serves another chance with the su
perior ingredients -which will go into
the 1917 aggregation. He will have
a competient infield to start the sea
son, a fine pitching stff and a fair
collection of outpo'sts.
Peterson Linotype Co.'s fast in
door team beat Lexington A. C, 5 to
0. M. Johnston pitching for the
printers, allowed only two hits and
fanned 19. Fletcher hit two doubles
and Ulrich two triples and a single.
The teams are in the Northwest
league, which has an opening for a
team to take the place of the Clarus
A. X3. Call Garfield 418, between
5:30 and 6:30 p. m.
In the same league' scores of last
games were: Mccormick A. C. 7,
Antler A. C. 1; Rail Lights 6, Carus
6; Oriole 16, Dapper 2.
Up at Northwestern there is still
an air of gloom on the eve of the
game tomorrow with Iowa because
of the fear Patty Driscoll will be out
of the line-up. With the fleet half
back incapacitated, Underbill will
start the game. Underbill is a fine
gridder, but he is the last capable re
serve man of the Purple. But our
guess is that 'even if Underhill starts,
Driscoll will eventually get into that
game if the Purple is having difficul
ty. His injured ankle will at least
permit him to run about the field for
a few minutes, and Driscoll can do a
whole lot of damage to an opponent
in a short time.
With the exception of. Driscoll
there 'are no injuries among the Ev-
anston athletes and Tnwa Rhnnlri en

No title hinges on the meeting be
tween Jack Dillon and Mike Gibbons
in St Paul tonight, but if the two
jnittmen really decide 'to fight, fans
jvho attend the party should be treat-,
ed to ten rounds of the fastest work
seen hereabouts in many .moons.
The men are in different classes
ordinarily, Dillon being too heavy to
class as a middleweight, But in this
encounter they are near the same
poundage. Mike has added some
beef and Jack has taken off a bit But
canny Jack was wise enough to allow
himself leeway, which means' he
should be strong.
Both are good boxers and both are
fine hitters. But each has a ten
dency to take it easy on occasions
and give an unsatisfactory exhibi
tion. Dillon hasn't been an offender
in this regard recently, as he has
forged so prominently to the front
as a light heavyweight champion
that he has a reputation to protect.
