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 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

sunny weather, both Charley Graham
and Jerry Downs are optimistic over
the outlook for a fast start in the
league season.
' 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

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.

fans will scarcely recognize their two
major league clubs this summer as
the ones that finished the season of
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

cured Outfielder Al Wickland from In

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

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

FRESNO, March 24. 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
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.
OAKLAND, March 24. The Oaks
