In addition to teams suggested for membership by Manager Charles B. Hall of the Fallon team, Manager Bob Sell man of the local team suggested that Sparks and Susanville, Cal., also be . included. The letter of Hall to Scliman is as follows: "It has occurred to some of our di rectors that it would be a splendid thing for baseball in our several cities and towns within easy access of each other, if we organized a league among us, to le known as the 'Sagebrush League,' A regular schedule of games played on Sunday, could more readily be main tained. The interest of the fans in gen eral would be keener as the competition for league honors would stimulate both players and fan. In this way the gate receipts would be enlarged as well. "Our association believes so thorough 1 in the plan and the good it will be to baseball in our cities in general, th-u tiny stand ready to put up any forfeit required by such a league. At thci. nueting last night the writer was asked to communicate with the several towns as suggested below, with a view of se curing an early meeting of representa tives for the purpose of perfecting plans and schedule which would enable us get under way at the earliest possible date. This meeting may be called at a central Kiiit and our expenses pooled in order to equalize the same for each of us. "The following matters would natu rally come up for discussion. Rule and regulations of league and players, um pires, official scorer, forfeit, schedule, opening and closing dates, the selec tion of officers and directors and such other matters as might properly be con s'dered. "We are writing Yerington, Gardner ville, Fernley, Virginia City, IOvelock, Stewart Indian School, and Carson City.

The limiting of the squads to ten men means that schools where track has been made an interesting sport for the largest number possible will be short-banded in some events. In the case of Reno high only half as many men will be permitted to compete at Winncmucca as took part in other meets. . . Principal J. D.

Because of the large number of com plaints received by -Secretary of State 1 George Brodigan against flagrant vio lation of the motor vehicle law in this State, Brodigan has called the attention of Gov.
