After uii exhaustive Investigation, the Michigan State commission on In dustrial and Agricultural Education, created by the legislature of 1909, has made public an Interesting and valua ble report, dealing' with this phase of education In the public schools of the vtate. The commission has gathered statistics and information from every school in the state where manual train ing, domestic science or agriculture is taught, as well as from schools that make a specialty of this educational I'clil, both In Michigan and elsewhere. The commission stands unqualifiedly la favor of manual training, domestic science and agriculture being taught in the public schools, and especially in the high schools. Present manual training instruction Is mildly criticised in that it docs not specialize to a greater extent. The commission be lieves that the courses In the upjer grades should be so arranged that a pupil could pursue the practical study of any particular trade, such os car pentering, blacksmlthlng, etc. To accomplish the best results, the t oiiunission recommends consolida tion of rural schools under a township district school law, with a provision for at least one high school In every town ship; that courses in agriculture, man ual training and homo economies be introduced In all high schools in the state; that any village with 5.0i0 or more population may establish trade schools In connection, and also contin uation schools; that a law be enacted providing for limited state aid for high schools that introduce these courses, and that all schools drawing such state aid shall be under the supervision of the state department of education. For ities of from 5,000 to 20,000 popula tion, the commission recommends the following state aid system: Any city or village having- a popula tion of 5,000 or more shall bo entitled to state aid for establishment of one or more of these schools, viz: (1) an elementary Industrial school; (2) a tialo school for boys 16 years or more of age; (3) a trade school for girls 16 nts or more of age. Said city may be duly certified to receive through its regular board of education state aid to the amount of $500 for the first In structor and $250 for each other In structor employed up to a limit of four instructors in all for these schools or departments.

Tuesday evening, Feb. 14, Is the date set for the port Arthur-Mohawk hockey game, which will be played at the Palestra. Negotiations have been pending with the Canadian aggrega tion for several days, and today defi nite word was received that the team will come here and that Feb. 14, the date proposed, is satisfactory. A number of prominent Laurium and Mohawk men who are ardent hockey enthusiasts and believe In' keeping up Interest In the sport In this district, have been Instrumental In getting the Canadian team to come here. It is believed a fast contest is assured as the Port Arthur seven has a splendid record of continuous vic tories and Is composed of young men who have played the game from child hood and are acknowledged experts with stick and puck. Inasmuch as Calumet Is not repre sented by u team this season local in terest has centered in the Mohawk club which has demonstrated Its class In games with the Portage Lakes and other sevens, and much confidence Is expressed In the team's ability to take the Port Arthurs Into camp despite 1 the well known prowess of the latter, I" Is not believed that the visiting ag gregation will play any otner games in the copper country as Its time here will be limited by the press of engage ments at home. Local hockey entluis- lasts are Jubilant over the success of the promoters of the match In getting the Canadians to make the long Jour ney here. It shows that the Port Ar thur aggregation has a wholesome re gard for the ability of the Mohawk team. Additional particulars concern ing the game will be announced later. DEATH WAS UNEXPECTED.

THINKS YANKEES WILL BE STRONG JOHN GAN2EL PREDICTS AMERI CAN LEAGUE RACE WILL BE BETWEEN ATHLETICS AND NEW YORK. John Cans-el, manager of the Roch ester team In the Eastern league, pre dicts that the 1911 pennant race will be between the Athletics and New York Yankees. "The race this year," declares Gan zel, "will be between the Athletic and New York. That is, of course, If Chase lives up to expectations. Chase is one of the grandest ball players that ever put on spiked shoes. He has a win ning personality and temperament. I'.ut that doesn't necessarily mean the ability to had. He Is green at the managerial end of the game. I believe and hope that he will make good. Hut he has to show. "Now he comes.',.

"The Yankees of 1911 should be at the start Just 10 per cent better than the Yankees of 1910. Walter Blair will make that difference. I'm throwing out everything in the calculation, too. I'm not taking into account in the least the Improvement which the team must have experienced by working to gether for an entire season. I base my predictions on lllair alone. He'll be the finest catcher In the league the com ing year, or I'll miss my guess badly. I've seen all sorts of catchers Jn my long experience, but I have never seen a fellow who looks so good to me as this man lllair. I've played against Kling, and when Kllng was at his best Johnny couldn't show Walter any tricks. Certnlnly lie couldn't at back stopping or throwing. And I don't be lieve he could at hitting either. Why, that fellow lllair is of the George Glb on type, lies gets better the more he Is worked. He has to work a great deal to be at his best. He enn hit almost any kind of pitching. He can handle any sort of pitching. Spitball twirling j Is his speciality." SPORTING EDITOR'S NOTES.

Ac cording to Athletic Director P. G. I'lar- telme, there Is not the slightest possi bility or a hitch that will prevent the placing of the Michigan-Nebraska game next fall. Informed that a story from Lincoln intimated that Michigan had named conditions to which Ne braska has not yet Irrevocably acced ed, he? said merely that" there was nothing to It. "The contract Is signed, and the game will be played," said Mr. Bar telme "There Is nothing premature about the announcement by us of the game." When the story from Lincoln first was made public It was thought pos sible that Michigan had insisted that the game be played unc'.er Wolverine iliglbility rules, as was the case with last season's Notre Dame game, and that If there had been any objection cn the part of Nebraska, it was to this condition. Mr. Hartelme allayed suspicion on that point, however, by asserting that the game will be gov erned by the respective . eligibility codes of the competing colleges.,. , "Michigan will be governed by her own eligibility rules," said Mr. Bartel me, 'and Nebraska will be governed by hers. Nebraska's eligibility rules are those adopted by the Missouri Val ley conference, which In substance are like Michigan's. In fact. I don't know now of a single particular wherein they differ." MORE COIN FOR BAN. Comiskey Thinks Leagua Head Should Share in Profits With Magnates. Chicago, Feb. 6. An Increase in sal ary Is what President Charley Comis key of the White Sox is trying to tie on the HO-ycar Job that Han Johnson pos sesses as head of the American league. Commy made th's known here recently when he entered a conference with President Shlbe of the Athletics, who was In Chicago for a short while. The South Side magnate says Han has worked wonders for the Junior league and believes his services should be appreciated by an increase. Commy proposes thnt a ninth Interest In the season's profit should go to the leader of the American league. "As president of this league John son has wrought wonders." said Com my, "and there's a lot of club owners who don't realize the good fortune that has been their lot during the eleven years Johnson has occupied the chair. It's high time, to my notion, that the eight club owners of the circuit hit upon some plan whereby Johnson, as league executive, should be given a ninth Interest In the coin split at the end of each championship season." This may be brought up at the meeting of the magnates when they gather at the congress on February 14. BIDDLE WANTS FULL DRESS. Thinks Everyone Attending Boxing Show Should Wear "Glad Rags."

Ills play was soon taken up in both leagues. A bluff start by the runner on first, when the hit and run was to be play ed, showed whether the second base man or shortstop would cover second to take the throw and the batter tried to hit through the position to W left unguarded. Larry saw that this could be broken up by switching orders on covering second. It was a simple play, but had long been overlooked. The batter, Instead of hitting through an unguarded position, hit into a rure double play if he made a grounder. That was the end of the bluff start to see who would cover. The necessity of both the second baseman and shortstop being able to tag out a runner was another result of Larry's play. It naturally followed that the better infielder at putting the ball on the runner would take most of the throws. The batter tried to hit through the strong player's territory, taking it for granted that lie would cover second. The inflcldcrs at second began to divide the work accordingly to the batters being right or left field hitters. The hit and run has come to be con sidered a good play only when the bat ter can hit the ball between the first and second basemen. As few can do this, the hit and run has ceased to be the style of any one team. CUE EXPERTS TO MEET. Former Champions Will Make Effort to Recover Billiard Title.

So when the regular training stunts in the spring camps grow mon otonous they hike to the gravel pit kept for that purpose. This is the max im of Hushey Jennings of the Detroit Tigers. The few who can slide are quickly discovered in the practice during tho spring time they are generally known to exist before hand and rarely does the list fail to stop with this limited number. In other words few players learn the finer points of the art of sliding. On the Detroit club, there are but two men versed In the finer points of sliding. They are Hush and Cobb. For two years Jennings has tried to produce a few more of their type out . of the ranks cf his r?cruits and vet erans. The veterans are too old to learn, while the recruits either lose heart or lack ambition, for It requires much nerve and vast e nergy to become acquainted with the "inide dope" on sliding. Cobb and Bush both have served as examples for young and those not so young. Little has ever come of It. When Bush reported to the South Bend club in the spring of 1 107 his speed was instantly noticed by Man ager Grant, and tTio sensation of the Central shortstops was instructed in the art of sliding every day. That he profited by the practice in base run ning is shown by Ownie's 49 stolen bases in 111 games. That he Improved as he rose in the ranks is shown by the fact that he is considered as one of the two real sliders the Tigers possess. Ownie Bush Is scheduled to be the greate-st shortstop In the big league's, according to Manager Jenninis of the Detroit nine. It is thought Ownie's additional weight will aid him in his hitting. He is expected to weigh at least 10 pounds more than he did last season. The cx-Broncho was much huskier than In 1910 having begun to fill out. CORNHUSKERS WANT COACH. Lincoln. Neb., Feb. 6.
