It is being freely predicted that the Mackin team in a few weeks will be a con tender, their team work improving gradually, and this can also Do said of the Athletics. Another large crowd waa present at the games and it is expected that means to cnecK the overflowing on the playing grounds will be adopted in the next week or two.

OPENING AT RIVERVIEW. Rlvervlew Park, Louisville's great est amusement place on the Ohio river, will open tomorrow for the 1914 season. Afternoon admission will be free, but after 6 o'clock adults will be charged five cents while for children accompanied by their parents there will be no charge. Col. Simons will sustain th reputation he has made of giving Louisville the best there is in music by introducing everything new this year. For the park patrons there will be free open air muslcales, an Prof. Guzzardi's orchestra, assisted by three high class vaudeville sing' ers, will be presented by the musical manager, Margaret Grant O Brlen for the opening week. Mr. Dlefen bach Is again in charge of the "Spot less Kitchen," and will continue to serve those delicious home cooked meals in the best restaurant of the South. The management says come down, sit under the trees and enjoy the view of the beautiful Ohio river. Ladles and children are wel come to bring their baskets. A play ground with swings at their disposal has been provided for the little ones, and a "grownup" will be on hand to care for them. It seems an assured fact that Louisvllllans will avail themselves of a visit to River- view when they want real recreation. LOOSVILLE VS. MILWAVKEE With fair weather this afternoon and tomorrow the games between the Colonels and Milwaukee promise to draw record breaking crowds,- as It Is now conceded around the asso ciation circuit that these two teams are the real pennant contenders, this fact being predicted in these columns before the season opening, when many of the critics did not figure the Brewers to be any better than fourth place, but who are displaying the same ginger as last season and are a foe to be reckoned with. The splendid Bhowlng of the Colonels on the road has awakened the interest of every fan and near fan in this vicinity, and the one beBt bet for to morrow is that it will be necessary to stretch the ropes in the field for an overthrow crowd, which Is a proof of the loyalty of the local baseball followers to the liberal pol Icy being pursued by Owner Wathen. Johnny Hughes' many local ad' mlrers are out in great numbers during the present series, rooting for the sturdy little catcher, but it is doubtful, if any of them were given the power, that they would trade either Severold or Clemons for the former backstop, these two having won a place for themselves by their splendid work. KENTUCKY HANDICAP. With the local racing season now n progress at Churchill Downs hav ing Just five mora days to run, in terest centers in the coming renewal of the Kentucky Handicap, the feature event of the Douglas Park spring meeting, which begins on Saturday, May 23, and continue for thirteen racing days.
