Fargo has- an opportunity.
This year this city was represented in the Northern league In conjunction with Moorhead. It proved a big ad vertisement to the two cities. Mer chants of Fargo have had a great deal better business during the summer of 1914 than they had in 1913. The Forum believes that the pres ence of the baseball team in this city was a material factor in this increased volume of business. The Fargo-Moor head team played before 37,000 peo ple at home and 39,000 abroad. It was one of the best drawing teams in the league and when it Is taken into consideration that two of the cities, Winnipeg and Duluth, are cities of over 300,000 and 100,000 respectively, it will be seen that the home team play ed to far more people in comparison to the size of the population than either of the two leading cities in the league. These extra people came largely from tut of the city. They came to Fargo to see league baseball and they spent a lot of money here—money that would not have come to Fargo except for the team. It is a fact that the team would have been more popular, and have played to even larger crowds, if it had been owned by Fargo people. It is also a fact that the team played fifteen more games away from home than it did here, the poor seating arrangement for a baseball game, at the Fargo stadium cut down the earning capacity and, because no money was spent for players, the team ended in the second division. Yet, the team broke even for the year, not counting the bonus that was given to Cantillon, not one cent of which was used toward building up the team. Now—Fargo can buy the franchise and own the team outright for $2,500. If this is done, the team would be owned in Fargo, and would truly represent this city. It would have no connection with the Cantillons. The Forum sincerely believes that it would not only pay Its own expenses next ed that would net the club a'handsome year but that players could be develop- i'°^!,L!AY-A new ARROW Collar.

Grand Forks sold six players of this year's team. The franchise would in clude every player including Manager Unglaub, except Catcher Murphy and Pitcher Maupin. Several of the mem bers of the team, notably Schuler, Pitchers Fait and Bessier, and Out fielder Doyle, will probably be ready for faster company with one more year in this league. This is the opportunity. On the other hand, if Fargo does not buy the team it will be sold to Port Arthur, Ont., and once more this city will be without league ball, while the smaller city of Grand Forks will still retain its membership in the Northern league. Fargo will be forced to take the sneers and jibes of Grand Forks for years and lose a lot of prestige in the state, because of this neglect to grasp the opportunity. The sneers and jibes do not amount to anything, but the loss of prestige is vital to the growth and prosperity of Fargo. This city aspires to be the metropolis of the state. The other smaller towns in North Dakota look to Fargo for certain things, and one of them is to furnish them league base ball. Traveling men who make Fargo their headquarters like to have a baseball team in their home town and The Forum knows of several who were directly influenced to come to Fargo this year because there was a league team here. If Fargo loses this opportunity it will probably be several years at least, perhaps a decade before it gets an other. Manager Unglaub is conceded to be one of the best managers in the North ern league. It has been a well known fact all year that he was not allowed to get the players he wanted, but had to take several men who were forced onto him because they could be obtain ed without cost. Yet he made a brilli ant showing, despite the fact that some of his best men were taken to Minnea polis during the crisis of the season. Unglaub stated today, that he would be delighted to spend the rest of his playing days in Fargo. "I don't know any other place in the United States where I would rather end my playing career than in Far go and Moorhead," said the colonel. These two cities are the finest little places I was ever in. They have treated me royally and every one of the memteiR oi the team had nothing hut praise for the splc.idid backi'r? Die team had from the- fanB and from everybody. I would like nothing bet ter than to give the best there is.in me to put Fargo conspicuously on the baseball map in the next few years *nd give a free hand, I know I can do it."
