Peerless Leader Gives the Fans a Little Dope
on His Club and on Some of the Stran
gers Who Are to Fill Highlander
Unies During Coming Season.
These are the players who will
report to Manager Blankenship for
spring practice. From these men
the Peerless Leader will select the
team that is to bring another pen
nant to Missoula.
Clifton Douglas Blankenship
"Skipper" Roberts Moore
Clarke Brooks
Joss A. Smith
Becker Navarre
Krause Prex Bryan
Finley Linn
Carman Carpenter
Perrine Peterson
Changnon Foley
Daschbach Bassey
O'Hara Tobin
"I am going to have a good club this
summer. It will be faster than the
team I had last year and will play
better ball. By placing Cordtz or
Daschbach in the outfield in place of
Warren I will speed up that depart
ment. Warren played good balil in
streaks last year, but lie wasn't _cn
sistent. Either Cordtz or Dasr-ba.c+
will be better. Tobin ought to be
faster and better than he was last year
and you know what Bassey is.
"I have my old infield with the ex.
ception of Oriet. Carman has been
playing ball all winter and will be just
as good if not better than ever. Per
rine, the brains of the team, will be in
his old berth and Changnon on third
base will work harder this summer
than ever before, He is looking for.
a place in a better league. Carpenter'
ought to fill in at shortstop in fine
style; if he doesn't Daschbach will
probably play there.
"Behind the bat I will have Roberts
and Moore. My pitching staff is the
only uncertain factor, and I am pretty
sure of that. From those ten twirlers
I can surely get four good men. I
know that I have a couple of first
raters in the lot."

lowed the hungry crowds and after
forcing our way through an odor of

"Sivin thousand, four hundred; four

Business is rotten," sighed the di
rector. "It costs me two dollars and
forty-sivin rints an hour to keep the
door open."
"The baseball season, I mean; not
the restaurant season," we explained.
")h. we'll have a good season, I
guess," said the genial Mr. Kenny.
t"llankenship is back lnid he will get
the byes in line. He is a great
pitcher, luank is. Whin we have him
to Ido the llitching and 'Nig' Perrine to
d(, the catching we will have a good
teamr. Thilt Schlosslerg lads has been
signited to do the batting, I see. They
tetll met tlit they are the best lint byes
in the business.
"I thlink ttte team ought to be cut

a glllne; there's no use keeping half
a dozen extra players. Blank ought to
pi(ch e tery game. He gets a big sal
ary ann thin wants to .sit on the bench
half the time. Lit them fire all these
extra men. If annybody ge'ts hurt I'll
play utesilf.

they don't alsess ily stockl."
