A Rare Advertising Opportunity
Is Being Cost by Seattle, Is Claim
Sporting Editor: Inasmuch
as a great deal I* being said and
written tnese days in baseball
circles about the Seattle base
ball club being placed in the Pa
clftc Coast league, and as Presi
dent Digitals hks been quoted
In the past as laying. "I am at
the mercy of the fans" In con
nect on there* th. permit m» to
voice my opinion In the mat
I submit my observations on
the subject as a fan who haa
watched Seattle baseball clubs
play for the last 20 years. as one
who has seen and followed bast
ball in the major and minor
leagues. and as one who hae
been connected with semi pro
fessional baseball In a mini
gerlal capacity for a number of
years, hence I may be quali
I do not with to be under-
stood »t critlcltig Mr. Dug
date, who It » personal friend
of mmy years' Handing, or of
be>ng a Coatt league partltan,
for I am not one of thpte who
accuse Dugdale of being cheap,
nor do I believe there la tuch a
marked difference In the brand
of bateb.ill put up by the Coatt
and Northwestern leagues.
I do flrm'y believe, however,
that Seattle should be In ths
Coast league, and that Dugdale
is making the mistake of his
life if he does not bring about
such a result before nest sea
son, and from my observation
the general run of fans of the
city are of the ««me opinion.
While the quality of baseball
played In the Coast league is
little. If any, tetter than that
played m the Northwestern
league, the fact remains that
players In that league in the
main are seasoned players,
whote names are familiar In
baseball circles, and this Is
more satisfying to the average
fan than a collection of promis
ing young prospects such as
predominate on the Northwest
ern league clubs.

1 was ever lilt intentionally."
Good proof whether it's well to have a
growing balance—just ask any depositor.
Then inquire of the spendthrift if he would
not rather have a bank balance in preference
to what he's wasted. There's your answer.
