TAKE A LOOK AT THE HIGHLANDERS TODAY, FRIENDS
BLANK'S MEN WILL PRACTICE AT THE BALL PARK AT 1:30 THIS AFTERNOON STRONG RIGHT ARM OF H WAGNER IS SORE CONDITION OF STAR SHORT STOP'S SALARY WHIP IS WOR RYING JAKE STAHL. WOULD CRIPPLE RED SOX If Heinie Should Be Unable to Play Through the Season the Boston Team Would Suffer Severely-Can't Help It. Hot Springs, Ark., April 5.-(Spe cial.)-The condition of Heinle Wa, ner's valuable right wing is worrying Manager Jake Stahl and Owner Jim McAleer of the Boston Red Sox. The soupbone of the star shortstop of the. world's champions is sadly out of HEINIE WAGNER killter and refuses to yield to the beneficent treatment of baths in the springs and rubbings by the club trainer. It is hoped that the arm will round into shape bly the time the, team reaches C'incinnati on its homeward I tour of exhibition games, but there is l no certainty of that. The pennant chances of the Red Six would he seriously crippled were. Wagner unalble to play. The captain is one of the main cogs in the de fense and the offense of the team, and none of the subhtitutes can capiably fill his place for any length of time. Coast League1 Standing of the Clubs.

High School Track Stars to Meet Varsity Freshmen The high school boys will meet the uinversity freshmen in a track and field meet April 16, unless arrange ments made yesterday between Coaches McGough and Mustaine fall through. Rivalry between the s.cholastics and the college infants has been unusually keen this year. The first plan was to hold a relay race between the two teams, but the rivalry became so keen that it was decided to hold a meet instead. A meeting between the. two teams wi I be as pretty an affair as Missou la has seen in a long time. The high school hasn:t had a stronger team ,than this year's since the days when Brailey Gish and George Trainer won the interscholastic meet with the larg est score ever piled up ,by any one school. For the first .time since that memorable year Missoula is in the championship class, With Jones, a star of the first water, and a lot of gpeedy team-mates the high school has a strong aggregation.

RED SOX STARS INSURED. Boston, April 5.--Life insurance policies aggregating $100.000 have been taken out on four of the Red Sox players in favor of the Boston Ameri can league club. Joe Wood, Hugh Bedient, Trls Speaker and Larry Gardner have Ibeen insured for $25,000 each. Christy Mathewson believes the Giants will have a strong pitching staff this season. Matty says the only two changes in the line-up will be Shafer at short and Burns in the outfield men aren't going to need a handicap, either. They have Brown, Individual champion of the 1909 interscholastic; Dowd, individual champion of the 1912 Ravalli county meet and a strong point-w:nner at the university's in terscholastic; Humphreys, a fast sprinter; Molchior, a member of the Missoula high school relay team that beat the state last year, 'and a num ber of other stars. The meet will be well worth while. High school rules will prevail. The 12-pound shot and hammer will be used and the 50-yard dash will take the place of the two-mile run in the program. James Teevan, former Irish-Ameri can etar, has been se'ected as starter. and Mustaine, McGough, Ov.s le and Weldman will be the other officials. The real event of the. meet will be the relay race. A meeting between such stars as Jones, Stone, Murphy and Whaley for the high school and Brown, Dowd, Molchior and IHumphreys for the fresnmen will be a real thriller. CONVICT LEAGUERS OPEN BASEBALL SEASON PENNANT-RAISING WITHIN PRIS ON IS MARKED BY ELAB ORATE CEREMONY. Atlanta, Ca., April 5-.Attended by all the conventional ceremonies of one of the big leagues, the base.ball sea son of 1913 was inaugurated at the federal penitentiary here today. There was a parade through thi prison grounds behind the prison hand, a march across the field and the raising of the championship pennant of 1912, won by a team compo,,sed of men of the stone cutting shop. The new -season started with eight teams and today there was a double header. The more than 800 prisoners had been givei, the freedom of the grounds. The umpires, selected from almong the prisoners, were freely deinounced as "robbers" and there was not a feature of outside baseball missing in the prison contest while somn of the p:!ays would have done credit to a ma jior league team. The flag-raising was an impressive cereimosny. The baseball diamond is in the shadows of the great concrete walls surrounding the prison. About the flag pole were grouped all of the players, surrounded by other prison ers. The flag was bestowed upon the winners with a cever little sl.eech from a prisoner, a mian prominnent in the news of the country at one ,tiie. As the red, white and bIlue pennant, properly lettered as the chllmpionship token of the Prision league fluttered to the breeze, thie prison band played "America." rWO VETERAN STARS OF BASEBALL DIAMOND SHOW OLD-TIME SPEED IN SPRING PRACTICE HAN$S LOBERT. Philadelphia, April 5.--Hans Lobert of the Philadelphia Nationals is still busy persuading Owner CrLrry Herr man of Cincinnati what a huge mis take Garry made in letting him ever get away from the Ohio town, where Hans performed such distinction until last year. One of Garry's numerous trades sent Hans to the Phillies a year ago. Hans at once proceeded to brush up in startling fashion, and the end of the season -found him the best fielding third baseman in the National league, with an average of .T3ik and the tinth best batter, with a percentage of .376 In 65 games. fHans has been more active than lever in getting into shape this spring, 'and the form he has shown in prac ice strongly indicates that he will be ey'en more than ever the confectionery ju e nile thb season.

C('hicago, April 5.--Tommy Ieach, former member of the Pittshurgh I' rates, now with the Chicago Cubs, in dignantly denies that he ever even contemplated managing the St. Louis team in the new outlaw Federal league, reports to the contrary from Pilttsburgh notwithstanding. He as serts most vehemently that the story was started by ill-wishers in the Smoky city, who wanted to get him in had with the Cuba. The midget Tommy is one of the wonders of baseball. One of the smallest men in the big leagues, he has played for years, apparently without growing at hit older. At home either hi outfield or infield, and full of base ball knowledge, he is expected to he a big help to the Cubs. In 98 games in the outfield last year he tielded .978 and batted .257.
