cold weather, their arms limber up.
They are hard to hit.
Yesterday, playing with the second
team, Dfilhoefer hit two singles and
a triple in three times at bat. His
record in the exhibition games is
studded with extra-base swats. That
1 is conclusive proof that .the young-
ster is meeting the ball solidly and
driving it on a line.
Dillhoefer is still suffering from a
bad wrist, but it is growing stronger
and his throwing is improving. If he
can hit he will have unlimited con
fidence in his- own ability and the
fielding end will take care of Itself.
Unquestionably the Milwaukee boy
will be first assistant to Art Wilson.
Shuffling Phil Douglas is working
like a rookie to prepare himself for
a regular job. And in his efforts so
far he has done better work than any
of the regular pitchers. At first he
was wild, but this has been largely
overcome. Douglass, right, is an ex
Claude Hendrix is having his
share of troubles and faces a tough
time. He may have to put on the
rubber shirt Claude has been no
marvelous puzzle to the coast boys
and his control has not been good.
Mitchell is now using Mann, Wol
ter and Williams in the outfield, and
it is believed he will bank on that
combination at the start of the sea
son. Changes are more than prob
able when the season shakes along,
for Max Flack is too clever a -performer
to be kept on the bench.
At the risk of being heretical we
are game to make the statement that
Flack is a better hitter against
southpaw pitchers than Cy, and the
records of last season will bear out
that statement. A good left-hander
had no fears when facing Williams
- last year.
Excellent scores are marking the
tournament of the American Bowling
Congress at Grand Rapids, and two
more leaders were displaced yester
day. In the five-man event Miller
Haberdashers of Detroit went Into
first place with a count of 2,977, 45
pins ahead of the Hotel Navarres of
Toledo. In the singles 0. Kallusch of
Rochester toppled 698 pins, eight
better than B. Bradshaw of Cleve
land. Several of the crack men of the
country are yet to roll in the differ
ent classes and it is better than an
even bet that the present leaders will
not be able to withstand the assault.
Following were yesterday's scores

Second Regiment armory:
Brigham Young 35, Alva 24.

In the semi-finals today Brigham
Young will play the Seward Blues at
8 p. m., and I. A. C. will clash with
Montana an hour later. The dope
points to Brigham Young and L A. C.
as finalists tomorrow night.

Charles McCourt of Cleveland
successfully defended his title as
three-cushion billiard champion of
the world by defeating Horace Lean
of Chicago, 150 to 146. Lean made
a game fight last night, but could not
cut down the big lead of the cham
pion. Frank White, Frasor's, defeated
Charles Morin, Mussey's, 50 to 35, in
the Chicago Billiard league. The de
feat of Morin put him in a tie for
first place with Bert Tredick.
