After practice I today Charlie Graham announced that I ' j the probable Seal outfield in the open 1 j ing game of the league season would I i be Herby Hunter, Goldie and Hum- I mel. Herby blew into town today on I the wings of a regular summer zephyr I and said he was feeling fine as silk. I He went out to Recreation park at I once with the squad and did a little I light practice to get the kinks of the I long trip out of his sinews. I The Seals were out all day and the I sunshine was of the variety that is N advertised in the booklets that go east N As a result the Seals had a fine work- out, chiefly devoting themselves to , fielding and batting. In the afternoon I they played a few innings with the high school lads, trying out young I Jack Johnson in the box and allowing Phillips to work out his arm. Duffy Lewis and his All-Navy team p i i will arrive tomorrow for two games 1 t with the Seals, one tomorrow and one , Sunday. Duffy is bringing the navy band along with him and a big parade L will announce the game. Mayor Toomey has set apart tomor j row as navy day and many of the ' . stores will close1. On Monday the sub marine baseball team will be here to play the Seals, so with the three games 1 and a continuance of the preesnt fine, sunny weather, both Charley Graham and Jerry Downs are optimistic over the outlook for a fast start in the league season. Ij, GANZEL AND M'GRAW l I FORM AGREEMENT ' MARLIN, Tex, March 24. John. fc Ganzel, manager of the Kansas City club, and Manager McGraw of the Giants have made an agreement whereby Ganzel will furnish positions in the minors for all the Giant rookies to be "fanned out" and return them to the New York club at the end o the season. ' The plan is the came as that which I existed between the two managers r when Ganzel was piloting the Roches - ter club of the International league. Clubs of International Coast League Will Be Counted In SEATTLE, Wash.. March 23. Tho Pacific Coast International league, formerly the Northwest league, will not be cut from six to four clubs, Robert Blewott of Seattle, president of the league, has asserted. z;iowett mado the statement, he said, in answer to ru mors that tho league will bo reduced in size because, it is very probable, it will have no Montana representation this year. Last year Butte and Groat Falls had teams In tho league. Because of lack of support and the high cost of the long railroad jump, Great Falls has al ready dropped from the rolls. Blewelt predicts Butto will bo dropped for tho same reason. Portland, Ore., will replace one of tho Montana clubs, and from present indications, Vancouver. Wn., will re place the other. Reports received here from southern Washington said Van couver seriously was considering ap plying for a berth. As Vancouver is just across the Columbia river from Portland, and as grounds are reported hard to find in tho suburbs all of Van couver's home games may bo played in Portland thus giving tho Oregon metropolis continuous baseball. Tho other teams in tho league will bo Seattle, Tacoma, Spokane, and Vancouver, B. C. Games will be played regularly at Camp Lewis, Tacoma. The league directors meet here March 27 to make their final plans and ar range their schedule. oo Columbia Will Be v Host to Wrestlers and Fencers! NEW YORK, March 22. Several in tercollegiate contests and conferences, tho outcome of which will have im portant bearing on eastern cdnege. sports, will be held hero tomorrow. Columbia university will act as host to both varsity wrestlers and fenc ers who will compete for the annual individual and team championships. Cornell, Lehigh, Pennsylvania, Col umbia, Princeton and Pennsylvania State have entered teams in iho wrestling championships, and Yale, Pennsylvania and Columbia will bo j represented by foilmen. j A group of the eastern colleges which support rowing will have dole- j gates present at a special conference of crow managers and captains to I consider plans and dates for the , various dual and triangular regattas : which are to form the season's row- j ing program. "i The executive committeo of tho National Lawn Tennis association wiil I meet to pass on tho dates to be as signed for the important tournaments of the season, including national, state and sectional championship series. While the dates and places for the more important tournaments may be announced, tho complete list of sched-. uled play will not be made public for another week or ten days. Other matters aside from, the assignment ot tournaments may "be considered at this conference. Changes in Lineup of Both the Boston Ball Teams NEW YORK, March 24. Boston fans will scarcely recognize their two major league clubs this summer as the ones that finished the season of 1917. Changes in the personnel of both teams, largely caused by conductions brought about by the war, have made many changes necessary, and tho Red Sox, in particular, will present a strange front to the fan in the Hub. Starting from the top, with Ed Bar row in place of Jack Barry, the Sox have been rehabilitated. Then" there is Johnny Evers, formerly of the Braves, but now Barrow's "first lieu tenant. Bush, Schang, Strunk and Mclnnis, in Red Sox uniforms, will look strange to the Boston fan, and there are oth ers, Including Hack Elbel, from he Richmond club, a first baseman; Paul Smith, Montreal outfielder, and George Whitman, veteran minor league out fielder, purchased from Toronto. The Braves, with Charley Herzog ' acting as first deputy to George Stal Hngs, will also look strange. In ad dition the Boston Nationals have se cured Outfielder Al Wickland from In dianapolis; Jack Henry, the former Washington catcher; Jimmy Smith, TOM HUGHES MAT RETURN TO A. 'Aj 1 t--: , 1 "Long Tom" Hughes "Long Tom" Hughes, tho old American Jeagpe veteran who has been pitching- in tho Pacific Coast leagnc in recent seasons, says he is tired of the coast and would like to come back to the American Associa tion, or perhaps majors, now that, veterans are doing it. It is likely that St. Paul will sign the old man. secured from the Giants in the Her-zog-Doylo deal; Dick Conway and Jack Nealon, infield recruits, and two new pitchers, Murray and Brumeistor. Barry, Shorten. Shore, Lewis, Mc Nally, Bentley, Pennock, Walsh, Ba der. Janvrln, Wilder and probably Del Gainer will be missing from tho Red Sox. All of these players are either in ihc service or eligible. Gardner, Cady, Walker, Thomas, Gregg and Kopp, who were all tho property of the Sox last winter, will spend 191S with tho Athletics. The Braves lost a pepperbox in Rab bitt Maranville, R'co a catcher and Schreiber. an infield recruit, aro also in tho service. Tyler and Barnes, two seasoned pitchers, havo been- swept away by player deals, and Art Wilson will don the mask and protector for the Stallingsites. Kelly, Powell and Rheg of last year's outfield, arc com paratively new players to Boston fans. MIKE DONOVAN CALLEDBY DEATH NEW YORK, March 24. Mike Dono van, former middleweight champion pugilist, and widely known as boxing Instructor of Theodore Roosevelt when tho colonel was president of the Unit ed States, died of pneumonia at a hos pital hero early today. "Professor" Donovan, as ho was called by Colonel Roosevelt and those under his instruction during the thir ty years he supervised boxing at the New York Athletic club, held the friendship of many of the most promi nent men of the country. He retired recently, but 'was serving as physical instructor with a New York field ar tillery regiment when taken ill. The former 'champion was born in Chicago 71 years ago. Ho served with the Seventy-first Illinois volunteers throughout the Civil war. It was in 1S66 that he won his first ring victory over Bill Crowley at Pittsburg in a bare knuckle battle. Later Donovan claimed the middle weight championship of the world and successfully defended the title, until his retirement. Although he never weighed more than 15G pounds during his ring career, Donovan twice met John L. Sullivan and other heavyweights. ALEXANDER-AND CUBS TRIM VERNON TIGERS LOS ANGELES, March 24. The Cubs started their $75,000 battery, Alexander and Killefer for the first time and doubled their winning streak by downing Vernon, 2 to 0. - Vernon got only one fluke safety and one drive past the inner defenses in the three innings tho battery was on duty.

The San Fran cisco Seals made it two straight this afternoon when they defeated Duffy Lewis' All-Navy team by the largo margin of 8 to 1. The Seals took most of the jazz out of the game and also the navy band by their ambition to show their fastest gait to tho valley fans in the final holiday game in which they will be seen on the local diamond. For the navy team, Pitcher Rbse, Duffy Lewis and the band did the sen sational playing. Duffy's two long throw from deep center to tho home plate brought tho big crowd to their feet. One of the throws hold McKeo cn third in a critical stage of the game and the other throw would havo caught Koorner at the plate had Rit chie, the Seal catcher, who was back stupping for tho navy team, been fast enough in handling the throw. Spider Baum showed form in the five innings he pitched, but O'Doud was still wild and gave the navy many chances to score. Each chance was lost, however, as the Seals' big offen sive took the pop out of every man that came up. OAKS TRIM TWO BASEBALL TEAMS OAKLAND, March 24. The Oaks made themselves look good at home today for they took the St Mary's team into camp In the morning, 5 to 1, and then downed the Marines in the afternoon, 5 to 1. So, up to date the Oaks look liko a regular ball club. "Bus" Arlett, tho young man who is being ballyhooed like a circus in a the morning and ho behaved nicely. If country town, pitched for the Oaks in he lives up to his press notices, he will be as big an attraction as Speed Mar tin was a few years ago, when police- i pleas, Grand- I I "Why Bobby, if m i 1 yoo wait a bit for j I no argument wii) ' : I 'caose the flavor ffikjcilW 7 I I fasts, anyway!" o! I f men halted traffic in order to let the popular pitcher get into the clubhouse. In the afternoon the Marines fought nobly and for six Innings they had the Oaks whipped, 1 to 0. In the seventh Inning Captain Roxy Middloton drag ged a bunt down the first baseline and boat it out. Lelffer bunted him to second and huge Hack Miller drove him home with the tying count In the eighth, the Oaks slipped over four runs and stowed the game away. MARIE WAGNER WILL NOT DEFEND TITLE NEW YORK, March 24. Miss Marie Wagner, national indoor tennis cham pion, will not defend her title in tho tournament which begins tomorrow at the Seventh regiment armory here. She won the title last year when Miss Molla Bjurstedt sacrificed tho honors by default. Miss Bjurstedt will bo among the players tomorrow. FORMER GIANT NOW ON BATTLE FRONT Harry (Moose) McCormick, formerly pinch hitter for the New York Giants, now a lieutenant with a regiment in France, has written President Tener of the National league asking that the I. league see to It that his regiment is supplied with baseball equipment Mc Cormick reports having met Captain Til Houston and Sergt. Hank Gowdy somowhere near the front and that he found both well and happy. BROWNS LACK LEFT HAND BOX ARTIST The St Louis Browns having g-ac-quired that needed right-handed hitter for their outfield in Tim Hendryx, scribes of the Mound City are now worrying about left-handers for the pitching staff. Nick Cullop and Albert Leifield are the only southpaws in sight just now, but the club hopes to land another be fore the season opens. Bobby Quinn will get one if he has to open the gravo of Rube Waddell. EARL CADDOCK WILL MEET JOE STECHER DES MOINES, la., March 24.
