Boston Has Rebuilt Team
Systematically May Figure
in World's Series.
BOSTON, March 7. "When the
time comes for the annual Avorld's se
ries show I think the Red Sox will
have earned a chanco to meet the Na
tional league champions."
Thisi's the way Ed G. Barrow, for
mer .president oC the International
league and now manager of. tho Boston
Red So.v, looks at the baseball map
this season.
Two months ago every fan predict
ed that the Chicago Sox delegation
would "repeat," but with systematic
work the Boston club has been rebuilt
until it now looms up as a probable
contender in the minds of not only its
manager but the whole baseball world.
When Jack Barry. Lewis and many
other Red Sox stars signed to play
with Uncle Sam in the war game this
year, things looked dark for the Sox.
Now, after collecting stars for other
clubs,-taking up some of the Interna
tional league players and practically
incorporating tho whole of tho once
world-beating Athletics, Frazee's out
field is a well-rounded-out organiza
tion again.
Besides gathering in players from
other American league clubs, Johnny
Evers has been added to the roster.
Evcrs, who has the distinction of win
ning a world's series -with tho assist
ance of Merkle's bone, is still a valu-
ablo asset to baseball.
Tho Boston manager has not been
i inclined to discuss tho intricate prob
lems of how and where ho will play
his men in tho coming pennant race,
but has been studying the playing abil
ity of the men for some time.
""I am still after players." declared
1 Barrow today. "Wo cannot afford to
let any grass grow under our feet and
, expect to cop the honors."

MP LEWIS m
k FINEMATER
Seats 3,000 Soldiers and Af
fords All Kinds of Amuse
ment Has Splendid
Acoustics.
CAMP LEWIS. Tacoma. Wash.,
March 8. When the men of the na
tional army left their homes and came
to Camp Lewis to take their place in
preparing to fight the battles of de
mocracy, they did not leave behind all
the pleasures and entertainment they
enjoyed at home. In fact many of them
found living at Camp Lowis had many
attractions of a nature not provided at
home.
Particularly is this true of the Lib
erty theater, a large structuro seating
3000 persons on its only floor and pro
viding fir3t run motion pictures, en
tertainments by soldier talent and
soon to give the soldiers the best in
vaudeville and other entertainment
through the effort of Col. E. A. Brad
en, prominent theatrical manager and
director of camp entertainment.
Though the plain wooden scats form
a strange contrast to the elaborate up
holsterings of the metropolitan thea
ter, the distinction between the Liber
ty theater and the playhouse of the big
cities ends thero for the stage equip
ment, settings and electrical arrange
ment aro the best to be had any
where and the acoustics arc so perfect
ordinary conversation from tho stage
can be heard distinctly in the farthest
corner of the house.
The orchestra pit is large and roomy
and provides plenty of accommoda
tions for the twenty-two musicians and
the $1575 concert grand piano. Four
of the men are from the symphony or
chestra of San Francisco, three from
the Los Angeles symphony and four
from the Seattle symphony.
There are twelve excellently
equipped dressing rooms for the per
formers, all carpeted and well fur
nished. A spot light from the rear, made dou
ble the usual strength brings out in
full relief the performers on the stage
and the projecting machines and
rooms, in the rear, for motion pictures
are of the latest models.
The theater already has proved a
popular part of life at camp. Only the
best in motion pictures Is being played
and frequently the theater cannot ac
commodate the men who seek admission.

Skipper Thought Fresno Ideal
for Training Camp Bali
Field a Lake.
FRESNO, March 7. Tho skipper of
the San Francisco Seals picked out
Fresno as the one place in the world
where he thought thero was sure to be
good weather for training his squad of
hopefuls' His judgment has been
knocked into a cocked hat during the
last few days, for it now looks as if
the crowd will have to play under
water if they play at all.
The ball ground is afloat and tho
streets are afloat. The only troublo Is
that the water Is so sold. It was out
of the question to attempt any outdoor
exercise today, but tho men availed
themselves of the hospitality of the
Y. M. C. A., where a light workout at
Indoor baseball was held, followed by
a frolic in 'the big swimming tank.
Phil Koerner put in an appearance
today, and a recruit from Tulare
county was added to the meal roll. His
name is Clinton Luke. Everybody fell
in love with him when he got Into ac
tion in the gymnasium today. Every
move was a picture and he did not
make a false motion with cither the
ball or tho stick.

vrill start tomorrow morning for the
South with the advance guard of the
Yankee players. By March 15 every
member of the club will be at Macon,
Ga., for the spring training season.
"I have never started for camp with
a more likely bunch of men."
This is the way the little optimistic
manager summed up the situation to
day. "We have tho nucleus of a mighty
strong ball club. To be sure, I have
seen but few of them in action, but I
can see a bright future ahead from
what study I have made.
Seventeen players are now under
contract.

Stages a Come-back on Prob
able Winners Tooele Also
Surprises Branch A. C.
LOGAN, March 7. In ono of the
biggest upsets of tho basketball sea
son, Boxelder tonight defeated the
strong B. Y. U. high school five, look
ed on as probable slate titlo winners,
23 to IS.
The Provo team led at tho end of
the first half. 10 to 9, but the Boxelder
boys showed a style of ball in tho
second period that was not to be de
nied. Close guarding held the score down,
each quint finding difficulty in getting
clear shots at the ring. The Watklns
brothers In the forward positions for
the Brigham City quint were the
mainstays of their team, while Brown
and Willis performed in the best style
for tho B. Y. U.
Branch A. C. hit a snag in the sec
ond contest and lost to Tooele, 34 to
22. Superiority of basket shooting and
passing won for the Smelter quint, as
Branch A. C. failed to follow the ball
with any degree of consistency.
Coach Christensen's mon were slow
in passing and had few shots at the
basket. The game was marred to some
extent by technical refereeing, twenty
fouls being called on Branch A. C. by
Simmons.
Harris of Tooele was the star per
former, as he held Leigh, who was
high man against Boxelder last night,
scoreless, and annexed two baskets for
himself. Kirk of Tooelo and Uric and
Eyro of B. A. C. alpo played well.
Tho games tonight leave all teams
tied in the fight for the pennant and
for this reason it will be necessary to
extend tho play to Saturday. Boxelder
and Tooelo will play tomorrow night
and Branch A, C. is to meet the B. Y.
U. in tho second contest. The two win
ning fives will decide the leadership in
an encounter Saturday while the losers
will contest for third place.
In games played this afternoon
Grace, Ida., lost to Kamas, -16 to 2S,
