We can now consider 1915 baseball
on its last legs and this season's foot
ball just coming into its own. This
week will see the majority of the
three big league teams practically in
the discard. In the meantime follow

Western crews are fast lining up

nice time of it this year hanging onto
its laurels. Judging from the open
