THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN, SUNDAY MORNING, JANUARY 120, 1918
PAGE SEVEN rue lit is ABOLISHED El 1 LEAGUE DRAFT OCCASIONS ACTION TO PROTECT MANAGERS AGAINST LOSS OF P LAYERS CHICAGO. Jan. 19. Abolition of tho player limit In the American league -was announced tonight by President Ban Johnson tonight This etion was necessary, he said, to pro fed the club owners who face the danger of losing several players in the nest draft, for military service. Ho was advised that three members of the Cleveland club Roth, Harris and Kelfcr had been placed in class, one. Under the new ruling the clubs will be unrestricted in the number of players they may carry. In previous years the clubs were obliged to slash their rosters to 25 men on May J. President Johnson said he understood the national league would take similar action. "We are in a. peculiar position of not knowing what will happen in the next draft," he said, "and it seemed a bad idea to keep in effect a ruling which was made for con ditions unlike those prevailing at ibis time,. We will not enforce the rule next season." The American league executive, accompanied by his secretary, Wil liam Harrldge, left tonight for Wash inton to attend the conference with federal officials on Monday in regard to adopting a method for collecting the federal war tax. The meeting to draft the 1918 schedules of the major leagues, scheduled to be held in the capital on Tuesday, will be held in Pittsburg either on Tuesday or Wed nesday, he said. The change was made because of the illness of Barney Dreyfuss. president of the Pittsburg club, and one of the national league representatives on the schedule com mission. 0 A. baseball game which is believed will' cause more amusement and fun than Charlie Chaplin ever dreamed of will be pulled off January 29 on the local high school diamond between the Cyoyote nine and their betters, the honorable and respected faculty. The ene team representing the spirit of fun and amusement (?) will be pitted against the other, the dignified and moss covered spirit of super-knowl-erie and dominant power. The same will be called for 4 o'clock, upon the athletic field of the school. The faculty team is entering into the contest with the grim determination of victory, and with many a grievance for the defeat suffered at the hands of the younger Coyotes when they played a match game of basketball. The fac ulty is planning to crush the younger opponents with the stern gaze and the ma jestic power of human magnetism. Tho Coyotes are not iawed In the 'east at meeting the schoolmasters on rqual terms. It is felt that though the faculty may bo "strong in the head" it Is undoubtedly "weak In the arm," which Is just the reverse of the old ldage often quoted in social circles. Whatever the result, the characters of the two opposing teams will deter mine the factors of a game filled with fun and amusement. CAMP FUNSTON WINS Republican A. P. Leased Wire LINCOLN, Neb., Jan. 19. Camp Funston defeatd the University of Nebraska in basketball 43 to 15 here tonight. ran SCHQOLERSTO MEET Notice To Cotton Growers The United States Government lias recently issued an order fixing the price of cotton seed.

ABOUT TIME FOR GAME TO HAVE DOLLAR ' The way in which the commercial side of baseball has been played up in recent times has stirred indigna tion. The prices paid for players and their salaries, the sums taken in at the big fames and so on, these things have been given so much attention that the fane are beginning to weary of it and to express a desire .to bear less such talk henceforth. Crab owners in both of the big leasees are much annoyed with Weeghman and Fraiee, who have been spending all sorts of change for gifted players that they may cop the pennants next season and realize nicely on their investments. Too much attention to the money end of the game promises trouble in several quarters and wkh. the kind help of one and all pernios something can be done to sqneleh tha commercial phase of the gam. , SENIOR CLASS SCHOOL CHIP In the finals of the class champion ship series Frdiay afternoon, the senior class baseball ty-am defeated the freshman team by the narrow margin of 3 to 2. At the end of the seventh in ning the score stood 2 to 2, to settle the contest another inning had to be played, and in it Captain Seaman of the senior team knocked a home run and brought in the winning point. Last afternoon's game proves the su periority of the senior team, and makes them champtons of the school. The freshman team runs a close second, and was by no manner of means easily de feated by the older brother Coyote. The game was largely attended by members of both classes and tho rooting may be called "profuse" in the extreme. Good spirit was shown by both sides and there was no hard feeling evident. o ABANDON ANNUAL MEET Republican A. P. Leased Wire CHICAGO, Jan. 19. The directors of the WesTrTn Golf association at the annual meeting tonight decided to abandon the championship mee for 1918 owing to war conditions and to hold a patriotic tournament in order to sustain active interest in the game as suggested by President Wilson. The directors recommended -that the tour nament be held under such conditions as might be determined by the. direct ors later and that . tWose who par ticipated should be forty years old or more. This age limit was recommended subject to revision downward to 33. An entry fee of $5 and an assessment of five cents a - stroke in qualifying rounds will be given to some worthy charity. No expensive prizes will be awarded. Last year officers headed by Charles Thompson of Chicago were re-elected. COYOTES VICTORS OVER GLOBE FIVE The visiting Globe high school bas ketball, team was defeated last evening by the Coyote team in a basketball contest at the Y. M. C. A. by the score by tho score of 45 to 17. Fross start to finish, the game was clearly won by the Phoenix team.. At th,e end of the first half, the Coyotes were far in the lead, the score reading G4 to 9. In the last half the Coyotes gained 21 additional points and the Globo'teara gathered eight. The lineup: Coyotes: Chancy and Tolleson, for wards; Ristow, center; Grosso and Thayer and Mays for Tolleson. Globe: A. Holt and Hayes, forwards, Wilson, center; Heron and Wightman, guards. H. Holt substituted for Wight--man, who was advanced to the position held by A. Holt. The next victory the Phoenix hieh school team is looking forward to is one with Tempe Normal, at Mesa, Jan uary 22. The coming game will settle the dispute over supremacy of the two rival houses of learning. The Phoenix high school military band will provide spirit and noise for the game and will signify the spirit of the Coyote clan. o LITTLE CAR WITH CURBED VISOR ATTRACTED ATTENTION AT NEW YORK SHOW One of the most interesting ex hibits in the New York automobile show, if one is to judge by the crowds that always surrounded it, was the new Reo light four. In outward appearance this latest Reo is a distinct departure and ves improvement on all former Reo four models. The body design is smart, and represents in every lite the latest development in body craft. Like its predecessor, the wonder fully popular ."Reo the Fifth," this Reo four is a big, full-size, five-passenger car with wide seats and -lots of log room. In weight it is consid erably lighter, however. It aims to fill a niche all its owr; and neither in size nor price does it attempt to compete with the large class of fours that are made to sell at a lower price. We have a clientele that we may almost call our own," says General Manager R. H. Scott of the Reo com pany, "that demands roominess ir: the body and quality in the chassis, and is willing to pay a little more for it. "We prefer to build for that class of custom rather than the one who looks only at the price tag." Looking below the surface of this new Reo light four, ot.e is impressed with the fact that it is built regard less, as the saying goes. ' 1 The best and only the best of everything has been used, and it is evident that no skimping has been resorted to at any poir.t. In fundamentals the motor and chassis is similar to in fact a re finement and Improvement of the original Reo four. Refinements are many, . however, and the result is a four cylinder motor of such balance and smooth ness that ft is impossible to tell, when riding in it, how many cyl inders there are under the hood unless previously informed that it is in fact a four. Wheel base is 120 inches and this. with the extremely long (32 inches)' tinderslung springs, makes it a won derfully soft riding car. . Body is low hung, but aides are high, and this with the low. seats, gives oi,e a feeling that he is riding in rather than on the car as used to be the sensation. Outwardly the only feature that connects this newest production of NEW REO LIGHT FOUR MAKING EXCELLENT IMPRESSION. - SIGN REMOVED 1 HOPES DASHED The girls' basketball team of P. H. S. beat the Mesa girls team by the score of 14 to 7 Friday evening, at the same time the boys of Mesa defeated the Phoenix boys by the score of 20 to 13. The game was staged at the local Y .M. C. A. The gymnasium was packed to the very boundaries of the court, and the bleachers were filled to capacity. - With the defeat by Mesa, the Coy otes have a very slim chance of winning the valley championship, but Coach Carpenter assures the public that the P. H. S. contingent will show the same "pep" from now until the end of the season that they hive shown' since the beginning. The Coyotes meet the Globe high basketball team, tonight at the Y. M. C. A. The game will start at 7:30 or 8 o'clock. Student activities tick ets will not be good for admission. o 1 TIRES ARE 0! C Some pointed information, free from superfluities find superlatives, and in reality a "heart to heart" talk between manufacturer and deal er, are embodied in the following ex cerpt from a letter received by the Payne and Saufley. Rubber Company of Phoenix, from the Amazon Rub ber company of Akron. Ohio. All Amazon tires arc hand made, from the best fabric and material that we can buy. Our fabric is of the Sea Island quality, 17 i oz. in weight and hns a tensile strength of 290 lbs. to the inch. Most of the rubber we use in building tho. Ama zon tires is ribbed smoked sheet, or the host quality plantation rubber that can be bought. We use this in our tread stock and fabric friction, while for our breaker friction, we use Upper river fine para rubber. which is the best rubber in the world, and comes from. the wild rub ber forests adjacent to the Amazon River in South America. There is nothing technical about the principles of our anti-blowout break er. It is placed at the point where the tread blends into the side walls and is designed to reinforce tho car cass at this point, it being the point where the tire bends under the pressure of the car. It also serves the same purpose as a hoop on a barrel, and by reason of its strong, non-elastic character, prevents the fabric from- bulging and sep arating under strain and thereby prevents blowouts. In this connection, we want to call your special attenthion to the tread on Amazon tires. This is a feature that is .very frequently overlooked, and is probably one of the most' im portant, and certainly one of the strongest sales arguments to bo found in the Amazon tire. In the first place tho tread is so designed that for pavement use the tire runs on the threo center bars.- making practically a ribbed tread tire of it and eliminating as much friction as it is possible to eliminate in a non skid tire. Then, when the tire is used on unpaved roads or streets the side bars' and hooks serve to give it, additional traction. Besides the resilient character of the tread rubber, and the several sharp angles, make side skidding almost . impos sible. . Under separate cover I am sending you samples ot our fabric,-1 smoked sheet rubber,-'ara rubber, regular and special breaker strips, together with els, is- the familiar lines of the dis tinctly Reo radiator. . ' rne curved visor marKs it as a Reo. It,' all other external details it is brand new. and well represents In tasty design and in mechanical excellence, the "conservative progres- siveness" that motorists have come 1 EXPLAINED LEONARD IS GANS' RIVAL IN THE RING NEW YORK, Jan. 19. Ever since Benny Leonard won the lightweight title from Freddie Welsh the new title holder has been compared with Joe Gans, his most illustrious predecessor. It mattera not that the styles of the "old master" and the present cham pion are entirely different and that Gans and his competitors passed on long before Leonard thought of boxing the arguments go on just the same. Useless to Compare Comparing two fighters of different periods is an unsatisfactory proceed ing and generally results in both be ing done an injustice. It the truth were known., it probably would be found that Gans was superior in some respects and Leonard in others. Some of the men that caused trouble for Gans might have been polished off by Leonard without much trouble, while some of those who have extended Leonard might have been easy for Gans. One of the strongest points made in Leonard's favor is that his percentage of knockouts is higher than Gans. It is also pointed out that while Gans usually had 20 rounds or more in which to score a decisive victory, Leonard must stop his man within the ten round limit. Sometimes Leonard has had only six rounds in which to do the trick, and he has scored some of his notable victories in Philadelphia, where this limit prevails. Means But Little However, the percentage of knock outs means little unless the men knocked out were the same. The cal iber of opponents makes all the dif ference in the world. For instance. Bill Brennan has a greater percentage of knockouts than Fitzsimmons but every one knows that Brennan is a very commonplace second rater. VIRTUES OF HALF V. N. Shay, factory representative of the Gates half sole tire com pany is in Phoenix, and will be at the local service station of the com pany, 431 West Central avenue, for the next two weeks. He is able to give some . interesting information relative to the manufacture and growth of the "half sole" business throughout the United States since the inception of the idea.. Smarting with a payroll of less than 50 men. the Gates half sole company lias within two years increased its pay rqll to include more than &00 em ployes. . working three shifts, day and night, exclusively in the manu facture of the product. "What joy it must be to a car owner to know that he will not have to get out in the mud to fix a punc- but one of the many desirable feat ures of the half sole plan. Scarcely less interesting Is the enormous sav. ing effected. The company guar antees that tbe tire is puncture proof and will run 3o00 miles, although many have been known to run 5,000 miles or 7,000 miles. The impression that Gates half sole tires are put on like a shoemaKer half soles a shoe is erroneous, ac cording to Mr. Shay, who says that it is not sewed on as is sometimes believed. a complete overflow strip from a 4-inch tire, which you can use in demonstrating to your customers and prospective customers the high qual ity of materials that are used in the manufacture of Amazons. Of course. high grade materials alone will not make a good tire, but when you take into consideration the quality of ma terials we use, and the fact that the men makine the tires, and super vising their manufacture have had twenty years experience in Akron's rubber factories, you will then tinder- stand why Amazons are the better tire. Wc hope that we hare answered vour inquiry fully , and that this in formation will be of some benefit to you.

There was a time last season when Ivy Olson of the Brooklyn Dodgers was the goat of the home fans and received a chorus of moans and boohs upon the feeblest provocation. But by sticking at the job and playing his dnrndest all that has changed and when Ivy had a recent chance to be come a Coast league manager the fans raged at the thought of his leaving. McArthur Brothers have just re ceived word that six more U. S. army truck trains,- eachconsisttng of 30 facKards, will leave Detroit in a few days enroute to he seaboard. At almost the exact time the first army train was rolling into Baltimore on December 2Sth, competing the journ ey overland from Detroit, the gov ernment gave the Packard factory unofficial notice to prepare 180 more three-ton and six-ton carriers for immediate travel under their own power. As fast as the drivers, cooks, me chanics, and other men of the person nel arrive from army cantonments and training camps the trains will be made up. It is expected that all six will be under May within a week. ' ' ' ' ' ' 'The trip just complctod, while in the nature of a test of the idea in volved, apparently proved satisfac tory and practical,". . says the. Detroit rree Press, in its concluding article of a series covering tho trip day by day. "The trucks made an aver age run ct 4S miles a uay ior eleven days over snow-filled and ice-covered roads. At times they plowed through drifts six feet deep. In Pittsburgh, 200,000 people turned out to see the trucks enter the fcteel City. "Commenting on the initial trip. Warren McArthur. says it has shown that army trucks can make better time to the seaboard under their own power than they can by rail in present traffic conditions. Another big advantage of the drive- away is the training of drivers, es corts, and train masters for trans portation service overseas." o Not long ago the Sioux City, branch of the Goodyear Tire Rubbor com pany received an order for hose to iv attached to the- exhaust ; a farmer's au!:vnolilc.

Schaffner & Marx Clothes PACKARD TRUCKS TO MAKE ANOTHER LONG TRIP ELIOT MOORE WINNER IN HANDICAP GOLF TOURNAMENT WINTER LEAGUE WINDS WITH NEW YORK MAN TAKING MEDAL HONORS UP PIXEHfc'RST. N. C. Jan. IS. Eliot r. Moore, of New York, with a. net 77. today won the handicap medal score event in the wlndup of the winter golf league of advertising in terests. The league's putting con test for women was won by Mrs. Arthur S. Higglns, of New York, with ' 21.

IL Trcadwell. of New York, won first honors among the men and Mrs. Charles Barton keen of Philadelphia, won in the woman's second. TULLimAI' In addition to its tremendous love story and spectacular scenic adorn ments Richard Walton Tully's new play, "The Flame,' which comes to the Elks theater for two days, commencing Monday, January 28, with a matinee on Tuesday afternoon, presents a. faithful and powerful picture of the appalling conditions in Latin America. A group of Americans have settled in the land in the hope of winning pros perous livelihoods for themselves. Chief in the group are Wayne Putnam, a young American college man who has put his money into a banana planta tion, and Dave Carson, a lovable rugged Texan who is prospecting for oil in the mountains. Just as prosperity seems at hand for them both, they are en gulfed in revolutions. Each new bandit leader that arrives on the scene is more rapacious and bloodthirsty than the last. Indignation soon gives way to robbery, which in turn yields to deeds of lust and savagery. It is melodrama of the swiftest tensest sort. And all the time the American consul stands spinelessly by. powerless to aid the American citizens in their distress because of "watchful waiting" ami "strict neutrality" orders from, the secretary in charge. Thus the play mounts up, thrill following thrill, t its smashing and final climax. Yet there is a wondrously sweet, tender side to the piece, just as there was in Tully's previous plays, -Th Bird of Paradise" and "Omar. The Tcntmaker." On the surface a rod blooded melodrama; beneath an un derlying current of poesy and youth and love. For, -The Flame" is the "flame of motherhood" and Tully shows that the greatest treasure of earth is not pirate's gold or power or pomp, but the undying love of a woman for a man. with its happiest of happiest of culminations, the com ing of a baby. It is a world-old. touching story told with new force and with unfailing dramatic insight GHIOTTOLEFT That Luiki Ghiotto. who was electro cuted on Thursday, had no relatives in this country, was the information con tained in a petition for letters of ad ministration filed by John Baggiore in the superior court yesterday.
