The 9Vhite and Black match game to
be played Sunday at the Chutes between
the Angels and the Salt Lake negro club
known afl the Occidentals Is causing
more talk in baseball circles than has
been indulged in since the Dlllonltes
dropped out or the pennant race
The winning of the game means more
to the Angels than the winning ot the
side bet and the big cut of the gate re
ceipts It Is a matter or personal pride
with every man on the Los Angeles line
up They wouldnt be beaten by the
black men for all the money that rolls In
at the box office
The Occidentals are a real ball team
No hippodrome about these fellows
They play real ball and they play It all
the time A peep at the above lineup
shows that the colored captain has
strengthened his forces by the addition
of Lane at short Lane Is one of the
stars of the Lo Angeles Giants a local
negro nine
Let them strengthen up all they can
said Uncle Frank Dillon last night
Thats what we want them to do Vo
want to wallop these fellows good and
hard and we dont want to give them
any chance to come back with a holler
of any kind Bill rozer will pitch as he
never pitched before 1 think it would
break Bills heart to be beaten by these
blacks Bill Is a southerner you know
comes from the southern part ot Utah

MICHIGANS ATHlETIC
RECORD IS GOD ONE I
Figures Show Great Percentage of
Victories During Fast Eight
Seasons
That the University of Michigan athletic
followers have every reason to be proud
of the maize and blue on the various
athletic fields during the past eight years
is seen from the figures of Philip G Bar
telme graduate director ot athletics In
the Micnigan Alumnus the director says
Because we have suffered defeat in
our principal football games ot the past
few years wo are likely to feel that we
have been only moderately successful in
athletics overlookog our enviable record
of years in the principal branches ot col
lege sports For that reason I would like
to correct the erroneous impression which
is In evidence to some extent among
1Ilchlgans friends and supporters The
following statistics covering a period of
the last eight collegiate years up to the
fall of 1909 must certainly convince every
one that we have reason to Le justly
proud of Mlohlgans record
In football we have won 70 gameS tied
3 and lost 5 scoring 3128 to our oppon
ents 159 points
In baseball we have won 102 games
tied 3 and lost 35 scoring 003 to our op
ponents 003 runs
In indoor track meets we have won
without exception scoring 694 13 to our
opponents 29 23 points
We have won 7 outdoor meefs and
lost two scoring 720 56 to our opponents
001 16 points
In the six western intercollegiate
meets in which we have competed we took
first place in five and second In the re
maining one scoring 255 45 points to our
nearest competitors 193 36
In the three eastern Intercollegiate
meets In which we have entered we took
second seventh and fifth places respec
tively
In seven years competition we have
won the fourmile championship relay
race of America six times and took sec
ond place In the remaining one and we
took first place In the onlY twomile
champlonlhlp relay and second In the only
onemile championship relay raC2S In
which we have entered
In tennis we have won both singles
and doubles In the four intercollegiate
tennis tournaments in which we were en
tered and have won SO per cent ofth
dual tournaments In which we have con
tested
These records should arouse every la
tent germ of loyalty and enthusiasm in
Michigan men while the difficulties of the
stimulate us
past three years should only
to more vigorous efforts to retrieve the
prestige slightly bedimmed in the late
years by a few defeats

CAN IHt SUCCSFULBiDL1 MAKE
MONEY ON FIGH1FIGURES SAY NOT
Chicago Nov 20There Is consider
able speculation in pugilistic circlE > as
to what club will succeed in landing
the JeffriesJohnson heavyweight bat
tle when the rlds are opened In New
York on December 1
Asid from the battleground und the
dab for tIle big chunpionsh dics
slon boxing followers are anxlJUs to
know hv much money the 51l1t2rs
will ba guaranteed before they put on
a glove
Its almost a certainty that the purse
offered the fighters will be a record one
1n Iugilhtl Jeffries never was a lIier
Il teok cnFtdtrable persuasIon tr in
duce tie big fellow to say tht he
wnuh1 reenter the ring again aiil it
eems he Is determined to make the
public Jay the price That being tho
case It would not surprise any one t
ee all Hcords go by the boards il the
coming heavyweight battle in the lOut
ter ot rhruomenal gate receipts from
the fighters end
qffers Pour In
Every day brings word that some
mining camp or center where there are
sporting men anxious to see the battle
settled has offered or is going to oftcr
the fighters purses of 100000 or some
such fabulous sum Before the battle
is finally awarded there will bo a hun
dred of these kind ot people who are
anxious to butt in for the publicity
When It comes to putting up 5000
forfeit with each bid It will be a vastly
different proposition
One thing JlOwover seems certain
the gate reeeits ot the big bout will
eclipse all others and make the fifth n
which Jeffries has broken the record
Stories of clubs offering purses of
100000 and 75000 for a heavyweight
battle appear like fairy tales
Would Lose Money
Never In the long history of fighting
has a promoter taken In at the gate for
a fight even as much as these sam
promoters are offering in cash for thf
contest now There never was a i5000
house excepting maybe that one in
Australia when Jack Johnson and
Tommy Burns taught The official gate
receipts were not made known but it
Is estimated that the amount was in
the neighborhood of 100000
Just to show what offering even 75
000 for the fight means to make a little
argument that boxIng must be stronger
today than ever before we print the
following table ot big gate receipt rec

BIG FOOTBALL BATTLES OVER FOR
YEARYALE AND MICHIGAN WINNERS
The great games of the 1909 football
season are ovet In the east the blue
of Yale waves triumphant over all com
petitors the crimson of Harvard yielding
yesterday the last barrier in the march
to the championship
In the west the maize and blue ot
Michigan once more holds sway the great
victory over Minnesota yesterday giving
It noS precedence over the big western
colleges True It Is that Notre Dame
won from Michigan and all credit ts due
the Indiana school
However In vieW ot Michigans Icto
rics over Pennsylvania and Minnesota
the latter eleven haVing shown head and
shoulders ocr the other western con
ference teams there will be but little dis
pute over Uchlgans claim to the west
ern championship
The old cry fO an castwest game be
tween the chaMpion teams is again heard
but without much hope of realization
What a game Yale and Michigan would
offer within a week were they to meet
can best ho Imagined On comparative
scores as well as the showings of the
two teams It would be a memorable
struggle The time may come when such
a worlds championship game is on the
schedule each year The west has long
offered her challenge and slowly but
V
surely is Impressing on the east her right
to the meeting
At that It was Yale and Michigan night
last night and the rejoicings of the un
dergraduates and thousands of alumni
of each school throughout the country
must have presented scenes to be remem
bered The victorious teams both Invad
ed the enemys country but It Is safe
to say that both Boston and Minneapolis
knew that there was a football game

THOUSANDS OF TROUT
RAISED AT HATCHERY I
State Plant at Murray Laying GIonnd
for Fishermans Luck in
Plenty
The state fish hatchery at the present
time Is a very busy place now that the
hatching season ig in full blast For the
past three weeKS Superintendent Jack
ling and his assistants have been taking
from the spa wnerS as high as 0000
eggs per day The season which began
somewhat earlier than usual this year
due to the warn weather promises to
be a most successful one
The German brown trout have been
spawning for at least three weeks and
there are still a large number yet to be
run through the trough The hatchery
which has lately been remodeled will have
n capacity of 2000000 This is said to be
ample room for the amount of spawn
that will be produced this season There
are about 2500 trout yet to spawn and
tn all probability they will continue to
spawn until late In March
The work of maturing the eggs is now
on Just as soon as the eggs am batched
they are put in large troughs and kept
there until they are sent through the
state to stock the streams
During the past Bummer one ot the
largest fry shipments in the history
of the plant has been distributed through
the stat At the present time there are
beween 300000 and 400000 fish eggs In
the state hatchery being matured By
the use of the receiving troughs to re
ceIve the fry after they are hatched
he state department could increase the
size of the hatch by several milflbns if
it were possible to get the eggs While
this may not be done this year it is
expected that it will be done next year
With the Murray and Sprlngy111e hatch
eries and the building of the other new
ones contemplated wm still further In
crease the capacity
Fred W Chambers state fish and game
commissioner Is confining his attention
to the hatcheries which are being con
structed In Ute state and investigating
Into conditions at the various lakes where
the work ot propagation ot the fish Is
being carried on I

WHO IS BEST PITCHER QUESTION HARD
TO ANSWERMANY ARE OVERLOOKED
Who Is the best pitcher said Addle
Joss when asked for his opinion
There Isnt any best pitcher I never
have believed In such a beIng as the
best and I never shalL From time to
time one man or another wlll be hailed
as the kIng of them all and the tans
will amuse themselves discussing the
matter
To my mind the fact that no mans
record Is consistently remarkable for a
term Of years precludes the possibility
ot picking the leader One season It
may be lIathewson who appears best
another Donovan and so on down the
lIst Then too there are a lot ot good
pitchers with poor clubs who dont
have the records of some others yet
pitch just as good ball as the leagues I
leading winners I
Take Walter Johnson for instance I
Put him on the Chicago National league
club with Its fine defensive work and
he wouldnt lose five games a season
provided the Cubs could get a couple
of runs a game for him Another good
man with a poor club Is Rucker the
Brooklyn star ono of the best left
handers who ever stepped In a pair ot
shoes Look at Mathewsons work this
year On a club that finished a poor
third he led the league
If there were any such thing as the
greatest pitcher our own Cy Young
would be about as close to the mark as
anyone When a man after pitching aU
these years can go In and show the kind
of ball that old Cy has shoD this sea
son he Is about as great as any man In
the world
Bill Donovan when he is right is
one of the hardest men to beat in the
world In fact ho Is almost inylnclble
wIth any kInd of support Nopltcher
over gave his club better service than
Mullin gave the Detroit people in 1909
He was In there pitching winning ball
day after day as steady as a rock
against all sorts of hitters
This fellow Adams ot Plttsburg
looked good In the final game at De
troit though he did not Impress me 60
strongly In his two earlier games He
had a nice curve ball good control and
plenty of nerve In that closing contest
of the worlds series 1 would like to
see him work when he had to go some
and pitch himself out of a few holEs
Thats the real test
I honestly believe that It a manager
had the preposition put up to him to
select the best pitcher from among the
ten lenders In either league he would
Me a hard time choosing And it is
a cinch that when he once had ohosen
he would kick hlm lf for not taking
someone else
