Off Outside San Fran
cisco This Year
retary Sydney A. Tibbetts of the
Academic Athletic league announced
yesterday that the annual cross coun
try championship of the league would
be ran February 22.
As in pa ft years, no announcement
of the course for the race will be made
until the diy before the big event. For
the last two years the course has been
through the west end of Golden Gate
park, the runners covering a distance
of about five miles. It is more than
probable, however, that the coming
race will be run outside this city. The
committee in charge, consisting of
Sydney A. Tibbetts, James Edward
Rogers and A. Hyams, will go over
several proposed courses within the
next few weeks and will select the
course that is considered the best from
the .standpoint of a regulation cross
country one.
Mountain View high won the classic
event lasj; year, but it is doubtful at
present if the peninsula town school
will have a full team in- the coming
The date of the annual cross
country championship was changed
last year to February 22 in deference
to the Wishes of the Mountain View
lads. A of the team last year
were Seventh Day Adventists and could
I not compete on Saturday.
Unfortunately for Mountain View,
February %% falls on a Saturday this
year, but it will be impossible for the
league again to alter the date of the
race. At the last annual meeting of
the league the cross country champion
i ship was definitely made a regular
i championship event and the race was
officially placed on the league's calen
dar to be run February '12. every year,
except where that day falls on a Sun
day, when a suitable day will have to"*
be decided on- Mountain View school
undoubtedly have a couple of
representatives in the race, but it is
not likely that a full team will be en
M.my of the country schools last
year made inquiries about the event
after last year's successful run, and
the league officials expect several
country entries in the event. Yester
day Secretary Tibbetts received an In
quiry from Nnpa high school, which
certainly will be represented in this
year's race.

This Season's Tournament
Looming Up Like a Rec
ord Breaker
Entries for the annual basket ball
tournament of the Catholic Schools
Athletic league are pouring In, and,
from the looks of tilings, it seems as
if it will be a banner season in this
branch of sport in the league. In the
past t'.in basket ball tournament has
been the favorite line of endeavor for
the youthful athletes. They respond
to the call of the managers with more
alacrity than to the call for the more
tedious training of the track teams.
L.ast year saw one of the greatest
eonterts ever known in Juvenile ath
letics on this coast. In both the 110
pound and unlimited classes it required
the full three games to decide the
winner, the contestants for the cham
pionship being the winners of the
tournament on the Oakland side of
the hay and of tbe local branch. St.
Peters lads were the winners for the
second successive time In the 110
pound class and St. James came out
on top in the unlimited clasp. This
year both of last year's victors hav r e
teams entered in both parts of the
tournament and will try to repeat the
former performances.
In tile local 110 pound field, besides
Ft. Peter's and St. James, Star of the
Pea, Sacred Heart grammar and St.
Charles will he represented. Of these
all are veterans in the league tourna
ment with the exception of St. Charles.
This is their first appearance in any
line of sport outside of the track meets.
On the Oakland side of the bay en
tries have heen received from &t. Jo
seph's academy, St. Anthony's, St.
Francis d<* Sales end Sacred Heart. All
of these teams are old timers at the
indoor game.
In the unlimited tournament
the local enthusiasts will see St. Pet
er's Star of the Sea, tfacrrd Heart
grammar and St. James in action.
These were the teams that fought it
out for the local championship last
year. Of them all Star of the Sea
seems to bo the pick. This team has
a remarkable record this season for
their size. They have beaten every
team of their class and have even gone
Into the ranks of the high schools
with good results.
The trausbay teams in the unlimited
class will be few. At present the only
teams in this division are those of St.
Joseph's academy and St. Anthony's
of I'Tast Oakland.
The games on the Oakland side of
the bay undoubtedly will be played on
the St. Marys college court. Thie has
been the scene of the struggles in the
past. Locally the games will take
place on Tuesday and Thursday after
noons at the Auditorium. The secre
tary of the league. Brother Josephus,
expects to have the schedule out dur
ing the early part of next week. The
games of the local division will start
next Thursday afternoon.

Big Bear Announces That
He Will Put Hal Chase
at Second and Try a
(ftpcrM Dispatch to Tb* Cell) »
CHICAGO, .Tan. 10.— Before l«oar<iintr
a train tonisclit that will carry him
back to his orange ranc In Glendora,
f'al., Frank .Chance, dpwlv named
leader of the New T*rlc American
league team, announced that lie would
try to "coin' as a player thi*
year. The "big bear's" return to the
diamond will necessitate a switch in
the team that promises pood results.
Chance would go to first base, reliev
ing ITal Chaffp, tho star initial Backer,
and Hal would bo shifted to second
base, a position he is anxious to nil.
"I am anxious to pet back in the
game," Chance said. "In fact, It looks
as though I would have to play, an
Chase wants to go to peeone\ I am
going to try mighty hard to come bnck.
My legs will not give me any trouble,
but I can not say as to my head, as I
have not attempted to play since my
operation. I am not positive I can
stand the heat, but if I am able to go
-through with it you will sco me at
first base when the season begins.
There are many who t))ink I am
through as a player, but if my head
does not bother me I will prove that
I am as good as ever.
"As to Chase's placing second, I be
lieve he would be a success. I saw
him playing that position on tho coast,
and he showed me that he could do
as well there as on first, lie is fast
enough on his feet overcome the
handicap of being left handed. Hβ
probably would imt make a double
piny n.s fast as a speedy right hander,
but he is a speedy ['layer. When Wβ
go to Bermuda I will be in uniform
with the rest of the boys. I will work
hard to pet into condition. Before the
season opens I will know whether I
will be able to play."
Chase has already declared he would
welcome such a shift.
Before leaving for Xew York, Owner
Frank Farrell said nothing would
please him more than to have Chance
return to the game. He believes that
the new manager would be h greater
drawing card if he were in the lineup.
Farrell, however, says Chance will ho
in absolute charge of the te«m and
that he will not Interfere with any
plans of the manager. Farrell never
kicks, oven when he getfl the \v<>r--t
of it. Baseball recall the ill for
(iinp of the Highlander* that dftfc i
back many years and point out that
Farrell never complains.
Chance will reach home Monday and
will remain on his ranch looking after
his oranßo crop until time to hurry to
New York tv attend the schedule meet
ing in February.
A fan lias figured out that Chance
will have t<> grow a foot taller before
he equals the height of a pile of $l bill*
equal to the amount of his salary, fixed
at $25,00 it. Placed in flat bundles, the
pile would reach nearly 7 feet. Tt
would take a large wheelbarrow
to carry away the bills should the new
manager get his year's salary all at
once In paper dollars.
Chance will not change the name of
his "Cub" ranch in Glendora to tho
"The Cub name will stick on mv
ranch gate always," said Chance. "The
club was called by that name long be
fore Charles Murphy had it. I always
liked it, made my reputation with it,
an<j it will remain at the entrance of
my ranch as long ac I live- there. I
remember when the name -was chosen.
Some of the papers called the team the
Spuds, others the Orphans and the
Colts, but Cubs sounded the best, and
Chance will also stick to No. 13, his
favorite number. Tho number ha*
been linked with his work on the dia
mond for years.

Manager Evers of the Chlcaro Cubs
will give-Roger Bresnahan a tryout for
an outfield position if he carries out a
plan announced before his departure
for Troy, N. Y. His theory is that
Roger would keep in good condition
and be in readiness to reliere Jimmy
Archer behind the bat If he worked
every day. Besides, he believes th«
former St L,ouis manager would make
good as a fly chaser and his batting
would prove invaluable.

The wife of Joe Tinker, new manager
of the Cincinnati Reds, is reluctant to
leave Chicago. She says she hears
baseball all the year round, but no
matter what success her husband htm
in Cincinnati, she will not sever her
ties with Chicago friends.
