Conrad Perez, would be soeed-king

probably be his last turn on the mile
track in practice yesterday afternoon.
Coming into the grandstand straight
away, his handlebars loosened, so he
claims, and in trying to keep the mo
torcycle pointed in the general direction
of the clear, he lost it. Or it lost, him.
Both nearly lost their lives. But mir

from the machine. But quite a few
square inches of bright red raw flesh
were exposed on Perez, who counts up
bruises and skinned places to the num
ber of two dozen now, the aggregate
from two spills.
Conrad was to have ridden a ma

C. B. Russell, manager of a team of

with the Southside Senators Sunday.
These Senators must not be confused

March 31st, to take part in the exhi
bition game. They will be in prime
condition and going at top speed."
Such was the encouraging letter re

who is traveling with the White Sox.
And while the White Sox are making
preparations to stop off one day in
Arizona for a practice game tile

of the day one grand success. Not
only are the younger fans working
over time but the business men, the
I older heads are now taking an in-
I terest and a move is on foot to meet
I ' the players at the train and enter
tain them with an automobile ride
over the Mesa, section. There are a
number of details to be worked out
in connection with the entertainment
of the distinguished guests in the
athletic world and they will be roy

desire to make the event a success
counts for anything.
The price of admission has been
fixed at seventy-five cents at the

still they are equipped with the kind

The graders were put to work on
the grounds yesterday and by Tues

Baseball in the Pacific Coast
League was so erratically rotten last
season that there is no telling who
is going to win the pennant. When
we asked several well known fans
about it, they answered "Portland,"
saying that told the future history
of the race in one word. Naturally
their dope was mixed with a strong
tincture of past records. Portland
has had a happy factulty of copping
the bunting which Hen Berry looks
at with longing eyes each year, so of
course the wise acres pick the past
champions to repeat this season.
When the occise cat was asked to
an opinion, the reply came
back immediately, "Venice." Just

Ben L. Rudderow, who is just
ordinary sort of a fellow and

in the opening play of Frank Baum's

The prize was offered to the man
who could do the best on a first

one of the new tables. Ben's lucky

Frank Baum. proprietor of the new
pool hall, is one of the most popular
sporting men of the town. lie is
manager of the Phoenix basebail
team, which plays Mesa Sunday. The
new shop is just two doors removed
from the old one on West Washing
ton street. A big croud attended
the opening, flocking around to greet
the manager and to play a game or
two on the new tables. The new
quarters are quite cosy. There is
implc room for eight large tables
in the main room, with a completely
equipped cigar stand in front.

Responses to Invitation of Evangelist
Show Great Interest
In view of the fact that it is known
the meeting at the Skating Ring being
held by the united effort of all the
evangelical churches is to close with
Sunday night's service, the interest is
not abating to any noticeable extent.
In fact the feeling last night was such
as to make many wish the end were not
so near. Last night the chorus choir
loft was filled and the singing exceeded
almost any service yet. The response
to the proposition of the evangelist was
excellent, nearly fifty men and women
taking places at the altar rail for the
after service.
The text, for the evening was "Thou
fool this day thy soul shall be required
of thee" and the sermon dwelt upon
the hazardousness of 'taking no thought
of the morrow". It made a profound
impression. The Idea that all of life
is "to eat, drink and be merry for to
morrow we die" was dealt with in a
singularly dramatic manner by Mr.
Brown. -
After the service, the choir practiced
for the Sunday music, as Sunday will
be one of the greatest days of the en
tire meeting as it will be the closing
day. An all day campaign will be the

So Dode Morris is going to bo the
ketcher for the Jewels when the
White Sox appear there Tuesday,
lira! Not that we would cast any
reflections on the work of the stout
Mesaite, who is the idol of south
side fans, do we let slip that little
dubious exclamation. Like most
everybody else, we'd like to see him
make good. But for the league's
sake, we dread to see Morris work
under the eyes of experts, scouts and
big leaguers. In the universal howl
to have him in the receiving end of
Mesa's Tuesday battery, there has
been no hint of Dode's possible
going up.
Plans Perfected for (Jreat
Evening at Home of Mrs.
Yabel on North Seventh
Avenue Waterloo Pipes
Will Be Played
"The Scots Who' ha" ' are going to
have a great time tonight. The offi
cial organization of Scotchmen known
as the Caledonian Society, has made
all the necessary arrangements for a
grand blowout and re-union of natives
and their sons at the Yaple Ranch just
south of the Grand canal on Seventh
Street. Mrs. J. M. Yaple having invited
the entire society to come to her home
and enjoy themselves for the 'nicht.
In accordance with this then, all
Caledonians will meet at the Labor
Temple tonight close to the good hour
of seven o'clock, and there will board
themselves upon automobiles which
will be furnished by the society or by
the members who have machines of
which there are a goodly number and
after a ride around the town the mo
torcade will proceed to the ranch for
the evening.
This, however, is but half the story.
Tile famous Waterloo bagpipes of the
Highlander Monro, will be taken along
and played around the town. These
pipes are famous for the fact that they
were played to cheer the Highland Bri
gade to victory at Waterloo, nearly one
hundred years ago.
To make the evening more essential
ly Scotch a 'Lassie' will dance the
'Highland Fling' in the national cos
tume. The evening promises to be a success
largely because it is a novelty. The
program committee requests all mem
bers of the organization that have au
tomobiles to have them at the Labor
Temple in time to take part both in the
ride around town and the trip to the
ranch. All Scots and those of Scotch
descent are invited to attend.
A propaganda is now being con
ducted by the leading insurance com
panies against certain sorts of dis
eases that can be easily detected by
physical examination in time to pre
Aont their continuation and in time
probably to effect a cure. This in
volves certain additional medical ex
aminations at Intervals, and it is
proposed to have these made for pol
icy holders without expense to them,
as a part of the service rendered the
policy holder by the company. Paul
S. Kantz, the local representative of
the Equitable company, recently re
ceived notice that his company had
inaugurated the policy, which is
called "Health Service." Investiga
tion has proven that in the past few
years tuberculosis, so generally
feared, has been decreasing before
the onslaughts of knowledge and
sanitary methods, but other diseases,
such as those of the kidneys, are in
creasing. It is to accomplish toward
this class of ailment what has been
in fighting tuberculosis that the ser
vice has been inaugurated.
