President Holland Summons
Three-Eye League to Chi
AS HE WAS REQUESTED TO DO
Good Wprds in Sporting News far
M. H. Sexton nd Belden Hill
Notes of the League.
It is announced from Bloominston
hat President Holland has issued a
call for another sessiou of thy. Three
Eye league at the Sherman house,
Chicago, next Tuesday, March 24, to
complete unfinished business in ac
cordance with the request forwarded
lo him from here alter the conference
The Springfield correspondent of the
Sporting News discusses the Three
Ee situation in a sensible manner.
"Perhaps the papers of the circuit
have had much to do with bringing
about trouble. Some of them have
gone to extremes in giving vent ,to
their opinion as to who should be
president and who should not, and
this naturally has served in a way to
antagonize the directors in their stand
against others than their own choice.
It is now up to the press of the league
to modify their tactics and use the
proper persuasion to bring about an
amicable adjustment of the muddle'.
Petty grievances should, be laid aside
and all hand together to work for the
best interest of the league. It has
come to a point where this is essential
to straighten things out.
"Manager Belden Hill of Cedar
Rapids and Mike Sexton of Rock Is
land are the controlling power of the
three towns that bolted. Belden Hill
is the man who organized the league
eight years ago. and during that tinie
he had practically devoted his l;fe
work to keep the league grring in good
shape. To him must be accredited to
no little degree the excellent success
to which the Three-Eye has attained.
"Sexton is a member of the national
board, and his knowledge of baseball

TO STATE TOURNEY
Rock Island to Try for High School
Basketball Honors Plans for
A week from today the high' school
basketball team will go to Oak Park
to take part in the tournament which
is to decide the championship of the
Illinois Athletic association. About a
dozen teams will compete for the tro
phy which will fall to the winner
among them being Peoria, Mt. Carroll,
Qak Park, St. Charles, Evanston and
LaSalte. It will be a goodly array of
teams and the local boys are not ex
pecting to bring the cup to this city,
although they intend to give a good
account of themselves. The prelim
inaries will be held next Friday and
the winners will compete in the finals
The games will take place at the
Oak Park Y. M. C. A. gymiiasihm and
Athletic Director Tapp of the Oak
Park Y. M. C. A. will be in charge.
Track activities have commenced at
the high school and the boys are be
ginning the spring training. They ex
pect to develop a strong team again
this year as there are several of the
best men from last year's team still
iz the school, among them being Hub
bard, this year's captain, Earl Fraser,
Steenburg and Roche.
The first meet will be held about
the last week in April and will be the
annual class meet.
It has been decided to drop out of
the Military Tract association meet
This year as there is too little chance
of winning because of the rule that
no man who has taken a first place is
eligible to compete in that event
again. Instead of taking part in this
meet it is very probable that the team
will take part in the invitation meets
that are to be held at Galesburg and

PHEASANTS FOR LONG VIEW
Superintendent Gaetjer Hopes to Get
Birds from Game Commissioner.
It is the plan of Superintendent C.
F. Gaetjer of Long View park to make
a requisition on State (lame Commis
sioner Wheeler for some pheasants to
be placed in the cage at-"the park
Being deputy game warden Mr. Gaet
jer is confident that his request will
meet with the consideration it de
serves, especially as the state, has a
big game farm near Springfield where
game birds are propagated for distil
bution throughout the state. Mr.
Gaetjer says quarters at the park will
house a male bird and four or five
hens. Eggs from the latter will be
hatched and if successful the young
birds will be liberated in the country
near here. Mr. Gaetjer has also or
dered a couple of black swans from
an eastern firm and they will be here
in a couple of weeks.
The Mongolian pheasants and par
fridges placed on Rock Island arsenal
last spring hatched out about a score
qf young ones and the whole flock
has come through- the winter in good
shape. At the. same rate of increase
this season the island will be well
stocked by fall.
