Light Senior Opponents Clash
on Lumber Field Grounds
Sunday Afternoon
Tho Pioneer and Clover baseball
teams, two local light senior organ
izations, will clasli on the Lumber
field diamond Sunday afternoon.
Both of these teams have made good
records so far this year, and an in
teresting game is expected. Thi- con
test will in all probability have some
thing to do with the deciding of the
light senior champions o£ this city,
as these two teams are leaders in
this class.
The Clover team has met many of
the leading teams in this city and
vicinity, although the combination
has been organized only one season.
Tho Pioneers have made a good rec
ord on tho diamond this season.
Manager Bonalsky’s team has been
organized for several seasons.
Oldenboom and H. Lovd will be in
the points fur the Clovers team in
this contest, while Thorvie Olsen
end Letts will make up the battery
of the Pioneer combination. Olden
boom is a southpaw, and Olsen a
righthander. This game will start
promptly at 3 o’clock, and a big
crowd is expected to turn out.
There have been a number of
games played already this season be
tween teams, contenders for the
light senior championship, and It is
possible that some of these teams
will challenge the winner of Sun
day’s game.
A trophy boat race features the
program for the event being staged
by the Prince Bay Yacht Club on
Saturday afternoon of this week.
Seven yacht clubs and tirteen ooats
have been entered in this bang and
go back race, which wil! start at
3:30 o'clock. The Keyport club has
two legs on the trophy.
In addition to this boat race, there

Catchers succeed as managers be
cause they know the game better
than any other member of the team.
Every play pivots about a catcher.
He is more than a receiver and a
guardian of the base where runs are
scored. He runs the team.
Half of the big league managers
today have been backstops in their
day. Bill Killifer, newly appointed
skipper of the Cubs, makes the
Other managers who have run
their teams from behind the bat are
Fred Mitchell of the Braves, Branch
Rickey ot the Cards, George Gibson
of the Pirates, Wilbert Robinson of
the Dodgers, Pat Moran of the Reds.
Connie Mack of the Athletics and
Lee Fohl of the Browns.
All but Mack, Fohl and Rickey
have won pennants. Killifer hasn't
had a chance yet.
Harvard will not change its foot
ball system this fall.
The old reliable style which has
brought honor to Cambridge is good
enough for them.
Last year tho Crimson eleven de
parted from the A. B. C. fundament
als only to meet special attacks of
opposing teams.
These special departures did not
meet always with success.
Harvard has always had weight,
generalship and good coaching, and
methods that are traditional.
These two things are hard to har
Ty Cobb is badly handicapped by
a partial cataract over his right eye.
Ty Cobb is runner-up for batting
It is true that Cobb's eye is af
fected. The growth Is getting worse.
But he keeps right on cracking the
Ty would still be a slugger if he
only had one eye. He hits from force
of habit.
Good shooting eyes never go back
•t. P. Heikes, winner of the first
Grand American Handicap trapshoot
in 1900, is still a contender in big
shoots. He'll be in the blue ribbon
classic at Chicago the week of Aug
ust 22.
Heikes won the Grand American
with a score of 91 at 22 yards.
Woolfolk of Dayton, O., was the
only other man to win the big shoot
at this distance. He broke 98 targets
for high score in 1914.
Shooting is a knack, especially
with a shotgun at the traps.
Once you get it you keep it. But
the handicap in distances ha# so far
kept any champion from repeating.
Benny Leonard and Lew Tendler
are farther apart today than they
ever were.
The old feeling of bitterness has
been revived and intensified since
the breakoff of the match.
Tendler's supporters freely say
that Leonard found he could not do
135 pounds and he strong enough for
the Philadelphian and purposely
sprained his thumb.
Leonard has nothing to say but
that the accident was a lucky thing
for Tendler.
If this tight ever does pop, it is
going to be good.
Violations of State Law Prove

[By Evening News Correspondent.!
TRENTON, Aug. 18.—Violations
of the fish and game laws proved a
costly practice as well as unsports
manlike for 749 defendants in New
Jersey for the year ending June 30,
as shown by a report made public
today by the State Fish and Game
Commission. The total amount of
fines collected was $18,296. State
Game Protector James II. Stratton
says this is the greatest number of
prosecutions in one year in the his
tory of the department. The fact
that the acquittals numbered only
twenty-four shows the efficiency
with which the state wardens pro
cured the evidence against the viola
The most important cases during
the year were those convicted in the
crusade of the commission to stop
the taking of undersized lobsters.
There were many such prosecutions
in some of which flnp.s as high as
$300 were imposed. The penalty is
$20 for each lobster. Most of these
violations occur in the Nerth Jersey

There were during the year more
than a dozen convictions on charges
of catching fish with otter trawls,
